Soundtouch 130 HDMI input degrades the video quality on my PS4

I just installed the soundtouch 130 and the video quality of my PS4 degrades going via the HDMI inputs. Colors look faded and less vivid.

Why is that?
What can I do to fix it?

 

Thank you

Re: Soundtouch 130 HDMI input degrades the video quality on my PS4

Hello jrbucaro, 

 

Thank you for posting. The reason why you are seeing this is because the Bose console only support HDCP 1.4 and the PS4 is set to HDCP 2.2. 

 

  • Make sure your PS4 is off
  • Turn your tv on
  • Hold down the power button on your PS4 until it beeps twice (Safe mode)
  • Change HDCP setting to 1.4 only

Let me know if this helps.

 

Kind Regards,

Joel

Thank you Joel for the information.

I tried to follow your recommendation however, in the safe mode it only gives me the following options:

1.Restart PS4

2. Change resolution (either high or low)

3. Update system software

4. Restore defult settings

5 Rebuild database

6. Initialize PS4

7. Initialize PS4 )reinstall system software)

 

How can I by pass the HDMI and use only the Bose audio?

 

Thank you,

 

Jose
