Part of the complete Xbox One Getting Started Experience.
Your Xbox One console supports a variety of display settings. It's easy to select the settings that are best for your television. Here's how:
Note TV resolution settings are selected automatically. Typically, you shouldn't have to adjust these settings.
You can also select Calibrate HDTV in the Display column for a walk-through on how to configure the optimal settings for your TV.
Note You may also want to calibrate your TV to get the best visual experience for games, films, and TV programs. For information on how to calibrate your TV, refer to the TV manufacturer's documentation.
Your Xbox One console supports the following resolutions. These resolutions are standard for HDTVs:
Your Xbox One should automatically select the setting that best matches your TV.
There are three settings for handling the detection of available resolutions. You can specify one of the following TV connection settings:
Note If you select a resolution that's not supported by your TV, wait 15 seconds until the confirmation dialogue disappears.
Colour depth is the number of bits of colour data used to display each pixel. True colours use 24 bits of colour data to represent the three RGB colours. If you know that your TV supports Deep Colour, you can select a higher colour depth.
We highly recommend that you leave the colour space setting set to Standard (Recommended). This sets the signal to RGB Limited, which is the broadcast standard for video content and is intended for use with televisions.
Allow 50Hz refresh rate
This setting allows your Xbox One to render a 50Hz signal if the video source is encoded for 50Hz. This is a standard refresh rate in Europe, the Middle East and Africa, and many places in Asia.
Allow 24Hz refresh rate
This setting allows you to view your films in 24Hz refresh rate, which is the natural frame rate for film viewing.
This setting allows you to watch 3D Blu-ray Discs on Xbox One.
Note Your television must be 3D-capable to watch 3D content.
