When users connect their Xbox One to a TV or monitor, the console adapts to the video settings of the respective TV or monitor.

However, this can cause various video quality issues, such as blurry images, fuzzy and static screens, and more.

If you’re experiencing blurry screen issues after you connect your Xbox One console to your TV set, follow the steps listed below to fix this problem.

1. Adjust the screen resolution

  1. Scroll left on the Home screen to open the guide > select Settings > select All Settings.
