HDR on Philips 58PUS8536/12

I have just bought a Philips 58PUS8536/12 tv, and when i try to watch something either on Netflix or Prime video, the image quality sucks due to HDR (all the shadows are red and yellow and everything else is too red). I tried streaming the same content from my phone and the image is much better, but it's not 4k. Is there a way to turn off HDR or do i have no choice other than returning it? PS: i tried fiddling with the picture setting for 3 days now.

Hi,
I have the 43 inch variant of the TV and recommend checking out the 8505 thread on here and towards the 100 page mark that discusses our TV.

Also have attached the latest version of the spreadsheet , which should get you on your way.

You will need to get your warm setting whitebalance out of the box settings for a base point as another forum poster built the spreadsheet off his settings and others who had an IPS screen and the 43 inch 8536 is MVA , so created a section to convert for mvs custom settings.

Might be worth giving a Google to identify if yours is a mva or IPS. But, don't worry Netflix and Amazon and YouTube app etc out of the box have wonky HDR. Seems a Philips thing lol, but you can get a decent image out of them without much work or expensive calibrations.

If you need help on adding in your settings let me know and if I am about I'll try and customise the SS for you with your warm base settings.

To get the warm settings to base , having changed them you should be able to reset back to default.

I'd recommend using ips night and IPS day as these give you access to all customisation settings and use warm for one of your setting like your day pref ( brighter image ) and night viewing ( slightly less jarring at night or in dark room ). I use warm and custom for this purpose.

Can be hit and miss , but this site is reporting your screen as MVA, so your need to put your warm white balance in on that section towards the end of the page. The formula will then update the different settings to your MVA set at factory settings.

Reason for the warm setting is this closest to decent colour matching - d56 I believe.
