PS5 System HDR Settings

PS5 System HDR Settings

Use the brightness table to set up the step 1 and 2 PS5 system calibration. Try to find data about the peak brightness of your TV on the site RTINGS.COM (HDR peak brightness value 100% for step 1 and 10% for step 2).

Before adjusting, make sure that you have correctly set the black level, gamma and RGB HDR range (full / limited) in your TV settings.alert-info

If your TV always does Tone Mapping and it cannot be turned off, then this setup wizard is not relevant for your TV. In this case, set the value to a few thousand nits in steps 1 and 2.

For step 3, set the black level to minimum (0 clicks). If the image of the game seems too contrasty to you, then you can try increasing the step 3 value by 1-2 clicks up.

  1. Any idea what the numbers are for the PS4's calibration menu? Seems to be 14 notches from the far left is correct for me on an LG OLED B9 which is supposed to be ~600 nits. 14 just makes the logo disappear with HGIG enabled.

    2. Ah, no problem. Thanks for the resources on the site.

      With HGIG enabled you do want to increase the brightness in steps 1 and 2 until the logo just disappears, right? Or one notch below that where it's plainly visible?
