I need help with 4k HDR pass through on second gen PsVR HMD.

Forums - Sony Discussion - I need help with 4k HDR pass through on second gen PsVR HMD.

I recently bought a 4k TV and while everything works great with the PRO HDMI cable and the cable I got spare when put directly from the TV into the PRO, I can not get any combinations of these cables to work through the PsVr breakout box. When I boot up Youtube it tells me 4k is not available and while the 4k works in games like Horizon, the HDR does not. In horizons case it says unavailable in the settings and games where it automatically works like Spiderman it does not when going through the breakout box. 

I am positively sure my PSVR is gen 2, my TV is HDR (as it works directly) the only thing I am not sure about is which two HDMI cables out of my three standard ps4's are 2.0. Both the gen 2 PSVR said it had a 2.0 cable as well as the pro. I can not find any differentiating aspects to them as all three have the same high speed cable printed on them. Regardless, every one of them works with 4k, HDR when directly used, including the 2014 ps4 OG cable. 

Anyone out there that can help? Or have any tips. Also, sorry about the grammar and spelling, my Mobile is glitchy for some reason. 

I don't mind swapping cables but since it is advertised to have this feature I'd really prefer to have everything connected at once as I use the PSVR headset very irregularly. Please help.

Have you checked the HDMI Deep Colour option on your TV while connecting your PS4 via the breakout box?

Double check and make sure that option is set to on.



not that I don't believe you, but just to make sure you really have a v2:

this is the v1 breakout box

 

and this the v2 one

Yeah, mine is the V2 version.

By any chance do you know if the HDMI cable that comes with V2 is 4k ready and also, if there is a circle on it and the one for the ps4 pro. If I could pinpoint which cables are which as I've read older cables (1.3) can cause problems. I have three cables and teo have circular imprints in the adapters as the only defining factor.

I have the V2 box and it's temperamental. I did get it to work on my 4K HDR tv (X900E) however at first it was coming up as some weird signal and every time I went to the ps menu the tv would switch away to another input. It's worse on my old 1080p tv where I don't get a picture at all, HDCP handshake fails when playing a 4K HDR game, it doesn't switch back to 1080p correctly.

It's definitely a HDCP handshake problem. What you can try is boot in safe mode and go to HDCP and switch it to 1.4 or off. Only if you do that you won't be able to watch 60fps 4K UHD with DRM. So that probably won't solve your 4K you tube problem... It did fix my problem with the auto input switching and random black screens I had earlier with the ps4 pro in 4K HDR.

This worked, thank you, you're a legend. As long as the HMD is powered off, I have 4k and HDR working simultaneously. You saved me much time and hassle as I was about to give up and just swap cables to get around it. Thanks again :).

What the hell is up with Monster Hunter world and RDR2. Both of them have HDR settings but it's more like anti HDR, the picture gets more washed out with a narrower range of colour. My TV's HDR effect mode is better at it than that actual HDR in those games. Anyone know of any other good third party Pro enhanced, 4k and HDR games? I've had a go at all the exclusives bar Detroit BH and Horizon is still my favourite, haven't seen anything that gets that good even though Lost legacy does it pretty well also.

I hot it working. My setup is the PS4 pro cable running from the PS4 to the breakout box and the my 18gps cable running from the box to the TV and as someone said above, I turned on  setting on the TV which allows "ultra deep colour". I also had to turn on a similar setting on the PRO. The only game that doesn't work is The Witcher 3 but that also doesn't work with my expensive hdmi cable directly, I just get a glitched out screen with washed out contrast in blotches. Pity too cause that was one of the titles I bought the TV for.
