I’m confused by the hdmi. I have both the PS4 pro and Xbox one x but this tv has two different hdmi ports that gets me confused on what they do. Hdmi supports 2.2 but the hdmi port 3 supports the deep color option. Which one supports 4K?

Asked by: Mokisme2
Hello, they all support 4K, just turn ULTRA HD Deep Color setting to On for your Xbox One X. ^AC
