Display settings for Chromecast with Google TV

To get started, open your "Display & Sound" settings:

  1. Turn on your Chromecast and then at the top right of your TV screen, select your profile and then Settings .
  2. Select Display & Sound.

You can adjust the following display settings, depending on the features available on your TV:

  • Resolution: Select your preferred screen resolution.

  • Dynamic range and color format: Select your preferred formats.
  • Match content frame rate: Use this setting to allow your Chromecast to match the frame rate to the source content you're viewing.

Advanced display settings:

  • Allow game mode: Game mode reduces latency and allows a faster game response time.
  • Format selection: Choose whether to select HDR formats manually or let apps automatically select an available format.

Troubleshoot display settings

My non-HDR video looks too saturated

Your Chromecast's HDR settings are automatically turned on, so the colors in your video might appear too saturated if you play SDR content. To fix the color, you need to turn on Match content.

HDR video output isn’t working at all

Some TVs may require the HDMI signal format to be set to "enhanced mode" to support HDR video output. Check your TV display settings to see if "enhanced mode" is turned on (this may be labeled differently depending on the TV model).
