Every gamer knows the joy of getting a new console. If you just got a PlayStation 4 Pro, you can make your first playthrough even more exciting by using the right settings to enhance the picture, color, and sound quality on your QLED TV and your new games. Thanks to Input Signal Plus and HDR video you'll feel more immersed than ever. Game on!

First, connect your PlayStation 4 Pro to your Samsung QLED TV.

  1. Using the HDMI cable that is included with your PS4 Pro, plug one end into the HDMI Out port on your PS4 Pro.

  2. Plug the other end of the same HDMI cable into HDMI 1 (or the next available) on your TV.

  3. Turn on your QLED TV. It should start to recognize the PS4 Pro and automatically switch to the source. If it doesn't, press the Home button on your TV's remote to open the Home screen menu.

  4. Use the Samsung TV remote to select Source, and select your PS4 Pro. You can use these steps to also switch between sources if you have more than one device connected.

Next, turn on Input Signal Plus (HDMI UHD Color) on your Samsung QLED TV.

Important: The PS4 Pro will say the QLED TV does not support HDR unless Input Signal Plus is turned on.

Your QLED TV already has stunning picture quality, but there is actually a way to make it even better. The trick is to turn on Input Signal Plus. You'll be able to see the graphics (and in-game enemies) much clearer, so it feels like you're really in the game.

  1. Navigate to and select Settings on your TV.

  2. Select General, and then select External Device Manager.

  3. Scroll to and select Input Signal Plus.

    Note: This setting is called HDMI UHD Color on 2018 and older models.

  4. Select the HDMI port that your PS4 Pro is connected to.

Finally, turn on the HDR settings on your PlayStation 4 Pro.

On top of what your QLED already offers, the PlayStation 4 Pro itself supports HDR video for an even more enhanced gaming and streaming experience.

  1. On your PS4, navigate to Settings.

  2. Select Sound and Screen, and then select Video Output Settings.

  3. Set the HDR and Deep Colour Output settings to Automatic.

  4. Select Adjust HDR, and follow the on-screen prompts to change the HDR settings on the PS4.
