You have just connected your new Chromecast to Google TV. You sit back to watch a TV show or movie and you notice people look kind of … strange.
This is caused by the device playing content for a single dynamic range format. The result is oversaturated colors that give skin tones and hair a seemingly oily complexion.
There is an easy solution to this once you know where to look. Follow us to find out.
Step 1: Find the settings menu
Can’t find the settings on this fancy Google TV interface? It’s not a mistake; It’s a function.
Use the control pad on your remote control to scroll to the top menu and then on the far right to your profile photo Click the middle button of the directional pad to select it. This will open the notification panel, which is where the Settings button is located. Click it.
Step 2: Navigate to Display & Sound
In the Settings menu, scroll down to Display & Sound. Use the middle or right button on the D-Pad to select it to enter it.
Step 3: synchronize content
Scroll down to Synchronize Content, the second option in the Display & Sound menu. Choose it.
There is only one thing to do here: toggle between “Adjust content dynamic range”. It’s disabled by default, so click on it. Your screen will blink, but once it comes back on you will immediately notice a change in the hue of your display.
Now, if you go back to what you saw when you first noticed this problem, you will find that everything looks normal. See, for example, the before and after photos of Amy Poehler as Leslie Knope in Parks and recreation. Now you can just sit back and watch without worry.
