Set up your PlayStation 4 Pro and your Samsung QLED TV

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.

Connect your PlayStation 4 Pro

PlayStation consoles no longer use old-school RCA connectors. On the PlayStation 4 Pro, all you need to do is connect the HDMI cable that came with it.

When you're ready, plug one end into your PS4, and then connect the other end into the desired HDMI port on the TV. Your TV should automatically recognize the PlayStation when it's powered on.

If it doesn't, press the Home button on your TV's remote to open the Home screen menu. Then, use the remote to select Source, and then select your PlayStation Pro 4. You can use these steps to also switch between sources if you have more than one device connected.

Enable HDMI UHD Color (Input Signal Plus)

Important: The PS4 Pro will say the QLED TV does not support HDR unless HDMI UHD Color (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 HDMI UHD Color (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.

To turn on HDMI UHD color (Input Signal Plus), navigate to Settings on your TV. Select General, and then select External Device Manager. Scroll to and select HDMI UHD Color (Input Signal Plus). Then, select the HDMI port that your PlayStation is connected to.

Set up your PlayStation 4 Pro for UHD gaming

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.

On your PS4, navigate to Settings. Select Sound and Screen, and then select Video Output Settings. Set the HDR and Deep Colour Output settings to Automatic.

Next, select Adjust HDR, and follow the on-screen prompts to change the HDR settings on the PS4.
