Destiny 2 has a problem with the implementation of HDR. Don’t know what Bungie did to screw up HDR but it’s the same on PlayStation and Xbox also. I play Destiny 2 on my Playstation as well and have turned HDR off in the Destiny 2 settings. I turn off HDR in the stadia app before I play D2 on Stadia.
if you search on Internet you can find a lot of videos and posts about it. I hope Bungie will fix this bad HDR implementation but since it’s been reported multiple times and for a long while, I have low hope for them actually will do anything about it.
I wanted to write the same answer. Is destiny 2. I remember that Problem on PC in the past. Try shadow of the Tomb Raider. It has excellent hdr and it's a lot brighter overall. Your stadia and setup is fine. It's destiny!
HDR is always wrong for me. I have to restart the TV once a HDR stream starts to even get the TV to recognize the new stream settings, never had this problem with other apps like netflix.
Shadows of Tomb Raider: Most acceptable with a calibration tool that tells me to slide until the box is white: Fires at daylight look really crappy, everything else is actually fine.
Destiny: Cant get it to stream HDR.
AC:O has settings for HDR that I cant comprehend. Am I supposed to look at the pillar until it gets "white"? Like, what does paperwhite and clouds on a pillar mean, that thing is so small I can barely notice any changes anyway and the clouds are either there or.... something?
For me the whole Chromecast thing needs a standardized method to calibrate and check HDR and games should respect that setting.
I had the same problem, and I was finally able to fix it this weekend. The most important thing in my case was understanding that the reference images in the HDR brightness settings are completely wrong. Those images would have me maxing both settings, and that made the game look terrible. Based on an old tip for the console version, I opened the game settings in non-HDR on a chromebook and set the non-HDR brightness to max, then I went back to the HDR settings and reset those to the defaults. I'm not sure both of those things are necessary, but that's what I did and the game looks amazing now.
