Question

Samsung 2018 65 inch 8000 series 4k tv

My first 4k tv and I'm not really impressed bought a PS4 pro and the new tv just for RDR2 and well I've spent more time dialing in the picture than playing the game. in HDR mode the picture is very dim so I turned the brightness up and backlight up now I feel as if there is a haze. also, I have major juddering even with motion blur and judder reduction on max. I'm hoping to find solid "this is what you should set it to" guide. any advice would be much appreciated.

EDIT I just realized that the HDMI cable is 8 years old and not HDMI 2.0 could this be a factor.

After reading so many HDR is dim posts

If this was mine I know to not spend time on that.

that's been happening ever since...

....they started advertising them as having "deeper blacks" on the TV, LOL. Seriously though.

It's a mess at times. I forgot to add source.

Played around with turning off HDR

This exponentially changed everything it looks way better, I even swapped out the HDMI cable with a 2.0 and it’s a huge difference thank you.

Good to read.

It's a typical finding. Once is a while a new owner insists on a fix. For that you are back to the maker and likely spinning the wheels going no where.

If using cable or fios STB service

You might try the HDR again so long as you set the STB to the 3D setting.
