How To Turn HDR On or Off on a Hisense TV
Advanced camera technology has allowed filmmakers to make movies with more dynamic images. If you’re looking to capture these pictures in all their glory, turning on HDR on your TV would be a good idea. It will allow for sharper, more vibrant images and crisper content. If you want to take your viewing experience to the next level, then you’ve come to the right place. Here’s what you need to know about turning on HDR on your Hisense TV.
Before we look at how to turn on HDR on your TV, ensure you have all the necessary accessories to make this possible.
One of the essential factors in viewing HDR content is to ensure that the TV is HDR-capable. You’ll also need an app that supports HDR content to play it on your TV. Most smart TVs have built-in streaming apps that support this feature, but it’s not guaranteed that they will work with your chosen content. If your TV doesn’t have these apps, you might want to buy an external streaming device that supports high dynamic range. These include Amazon Fire TV, Apple TV, and Roku.
If you want to stream HDR content from an external device, you’ll need an HDMI port that supports the latest HDCP 2.2. This technology prevents unauthorized access to the content and is required to transmit HDR videos to your TV.
Although HDR technically doesn’t require much bandwidth to stream content, most services consider it a premium product. Because of this, you will need a high-speed internet connection to be able to view your shows.

Reasons Behind Common HDR Issues
Many components need to work together seamlessly to ensure that HDR functions correctly. It’s therefore not surprising when glitches occur from time to time. Here are some common problems you might encounter when HDR is turned on.
When playing HDR content, your screen can repeatedly go dark and come back to life. In this situation, the audio usually remains unaffected. This is a sign that the HDMI cable feeding content to the TV isn’t fast enough. It’s probably time to get a premium, high-speed cable that matches the specifications of your Hisense TV.
HDR Icon Keeps Disappearing
HDR users have reported that the HDR icon sometimes disappears from the screen. One of the reasons this happens is the internet connection. If your connection is not fast enough to support HDR content, your streaming service might be adjusting the image quality while you are watching your show. Turning off the feature will rectify the issue until you can get faster internet speeds.
HDR is an incredible feature to have. It provides vibrant, crisp images that allow you to make the most of your TV. With this guide, you now know how to enable the feature. You can begin to enjoy cinema-quality TV from the comfort of your home.
