So you just connected your new Chromecast with Google TV. You lean back to watch a TV show or movie and you notice that people are kind of watching …
This is because the device plays content for a single dynamic range format. The result is supersaturated colors that give skin tones and hair a seemingly oily skin.
There is a simple solution for this if you know where to look. Follow along to find out.
Step 1: Find the settings menu
Can’t find the settings on the sleek Google TV interface? It is not a mistake; it is a function.
Scroll to the top menu with the directional control of the remote control and then to the far right of your profile photo. Click the center button on the directional button to highlight it, which notifies the notification panel where you find the settings button. Click on it.
Step 2: Navigate to Display & Sound
In the settings menu, scroll down to Display & Sound. Select it with the middle or right button on the direction button to enter.
Step 3: Match content
Scroll down to “Match Content”, the second option in the Display & Sound menu. Choose it.
There is only one thing to do here: toggle “Match dynamic scope for content.” It’s off by default, so click on it. Your screen will blink, but once it restarts, you will immediately notice a change in the color tone of your screen.
Now, if you go back to what you were looking at when you noticed this problem, you see that everything looks normal. See for example before and after pictures of Amy Poehler as Leslie Knope in Parks and recreation. So now you can just sit back and watch without worries.
