Decided to cut the cord and move to streaming service using roku 4k express. Internet provider is t-mobile internet. right now connectivity is great and throughput is through the roof. However, video quality from streaming services youtube tv and directv stream dont behave well with picture setup on my Samsung 65js8500. Colors are too vivid and overall picture is darker than previously witnessed.

The display improved a bit after updated the picture settings per recommendations from this forum. I still had to reduce color level and fiddle with the contrast/brightness/backlight. Images seem a little blurred after the reconfiguration.

Anyone have any thoughts on what could be causing the picture quality to deviate from the quality I had with Directv?

Here are picture settings I applied as info

It won't be anything to do with the internet connection. A drop in quality can be down to ISP traffic management restricting bandwidth, but they shouldn't be interfering with the data.

I'm not familiar with that part of the North American market so I'm not sure if you changed streaming provider, changed player device or both but that's likely to be the thing that triggered the change.

It sounds like it could be transmitting an HDR signal now but wasn't before so if there's a way to disable that then that'd be the first thing I'd try.
