Problem with my new PS4. If I turn off the TV and PS4 somehow goes to sleep I'm not able to wake it - just a black screen. Anyone had this happen

This deal may have been already stated, but you can get a year of Gamepass right now on Amazon digital delivery for 50% off. Nabbed it.

Hadn't seen that, $70 for a year is pretty good if you just use it for a couple games.

Edit: Fixed! Somehow I had LG Deep Color whatever setting turned off on all 3 HDMI inputs. Turned it on for the Ps4, and it's back to HDR. To be honest, not sure I can tell a difference, but I'm glad that it's back on. :)

Somehow broke my Ps4's HDR? Was working fine, and then I noticed every time I loaded up Spider-man, I wasn't getting the bubble in the top right that said HDR. Game still looked great, etc etc, so I didn't think much of it. Just today I loaded up God of War for the first time, and right off the bat it says HDR not supported.

I've got my LG OLED in Game Mode, and the Ps4 is set to automatic for HDR. Literally nothing has changed, but it won't go over into HDR anymore and no idea how to fix it.

I need that little notification too to make sure I’m playing with power!

Here's something super bizarre, microsoft sent out an email to anyone who subs to their email info yesterday with the title

Save $100 on Xbox One X consoles

the email starts with "12 days of faves, they will know your name"

Inside the email near the bottom is a christmas tree. If you click the tree and then click the image at the top of the blank new page, you will get a free $10 xbox.com gift. Totally hidden easter egg.

I have NO idea how to turn this email on/off, I spent 5 minutes looking around and couldn't figure it out. Didn't even get it on my main account but my wife's email (she ordered a laptop years ago) but the code worked on my xbox account.

Damn, thanks for the heads up. I got that email, and it’s a true gift card that you can just apply to your account, not a coupon or anything.

Nice. Thanks! I deleted that email without even opening it. Was still in my gmail trash.

Any chance at that link? I tend to turn off email communication settings as a standard.

link was personalized for each person and anyways the $10 links all died sometime yesterday afternoon anyways. i still don't even know how to turn it on for other accounts

and yeah spidey is $40 not $30 but i have a 20% coupon in my cart (any new ps4/ps4 pro should have it), i'd get the digital deluxe version tho since it comes with the $25 season pass

That's what I was thinking but couldn't find the setting
System > make sure enable HDMI device link is disabled.

Also, if you are running through a receiver, make sure CEC is turned off on the receiver as well on your display.

Also, if your new PS is a Pro and 4k HDR - make sure you use the HDMI cable in the box - check the bandwidth specs of the HDMI cable routes - need to have a cable with 18.2gps bandwidth. (Any high Speed HDMI cable) If you are running HDR/4k, also make sure there aren't any devices in the chain that might not be HDCP 2.2 compliant.

Man, the Xbox one X reverting the audio to stereo because of a fucked up handshake is annoying af. My TV keeps trying to turn on the PS4, too. Miss when all of my devices were Samsung and it worked fairly well together. Basically turned off all of the HDMI-CEC at this point.
