Get the Best Picture on Your QLED and UHD TV

Two people in a living room watching a Samsung QLED TV

With 8K and 4K resolution, the QLED and UHD TV was made for enjoying ultra-high-definition (UHD) videos. And if you want to connect an ultra HD Blu-ray player, there are settings available that will optimize your TV for UHD content. But that’s not all – you can also adjust the HDMI Black Level for richer blacks and colors on your TV’s screen.

View UHD Videos on Your QLED and UHD TV

You connected your UHD Blu-ray player or UHD game console to your TV to watch a new release in 4K – now what? Use Input Signal Plus (also known as HDMI UHD Color) to optimize the TV for UHD content. The best part is on some of our TVs, the device is instantly recognized and this setting is turned on automatically. If for some reason, this doesn't happen, follow these steps:

Press the Home button on your TV remote, and then navigate to and select Settings > General. Select External Device Manager, and then select Input Signal Plus. Select the HDMI port you connected your device to, and then press Select to turn the feature On. 

When you connect the TV to an external device that supports only the UHD 24 or 30 Hz frequency, or any FHD frequency, Input Signal Plus may not be available.

Use HDMI Black Level on Your QLED and UHD TV

That black and white film is looking a little dull on your old DVD player. No worries, just use HDMI Black Level to increase the contrast. Here’s how to turn it on:

Press the Home button on your TV remote, and then select Settings > General. Select External Device Manager, and then select HDMI Black Level to turn it on.

Note: This feature is only available when the input signal connected to the TV is set to RGB444.
