I have a Samsung  QN95A and I am watching Wimbledon in UHD on the BBC iPlayer app. The red level is waaaaaaay too high. Everyone looks like they have terrible sunburn.

@Techpassesmeby: Please try heading to Home > Settings > Picture > Expert Settings, and adjusting Tint (G/R),  RGB Only Mode and Colour Space Settings to your preference. Let me know how you get on.

Hi @Techpassesmeby  Just to add to to the beneficial  advice @AndrewL  provided  presumably video is set to best quality .   You might also want to have a look at contrast Enhancer and colour Tone and can adjust the HLG.

Some information for those who may be interested in the Wimbledon UHD service https://www.cordbusters.co.uk/bbc-wimbledon-2022-4k-ultra-hd/ 

It seems to have been fine for me though I am watching  Jack Draper on court 1 at the moment,UHD only available for centre court.  one thing to bear in mind is that the streams are slightly behind  the live play.

By changing the Tint (G/R) i can dial out most of the red but thrn the green becomes the problem. Especially so give Wimbledon is on grass courts that now look radioactive.

I had the same - colour saturation too high. Changed Colour Space from Natural to Auto.  Fixed it.

@Techpassesmeby  is RGB  Mode definitely switched off ?   In colour space settings see if Auto makes a difference if on Native.  If still issue also try and custom setting for all the different colours. see some information here  https://www.samsung.com/my/support/tv-audio-video/what-is-the-color-space-setting/  https://www.lifewire.com/best-picture-settings-for-samsung-4k-tv-4776573

Sorry, I don’t know. I assume one of the other picture settings is disabling auto. Film mode is greyed out on my TV but if enabled on yours, might be a first thing to try. Otherwise, see if the other picture settings are greying out the auto. RGB is off on my tv fyi.

Hi, sorry for bringing up an old thread.  I've been having this issue too.  I don't think this is an issue with your TV, or the OS.  I think its an iplayer issue.

 

It happens to me every now and then, just an episode if something will be really overblown red.  Sometimes everything will be like that.  And then thr next day, normal.

 

I don't have a Samsung/Tizen OS TV however.   I have a Sony TV.

 

Its very frustrating.   You can almost make it look normal by applying ridiculous amounts of colour adjustment, but thats far from ideal.
