So I just bought a xbox one x and it was refurbished, it worked and looked great . Decided to take it back and exchange for new one. Well i get home and set it up , I noticed again looked great but as soon as I played a game or watched Netflix it dimmed and got darker, but when I watch YouTube on 4k videos it looks great . What could be the issue?

Do you have your TV's eco mode turned on?
That will dim the screen based on ambient light. Make sure this is turned off.

Might also have something to do with HDR.

Sounds like your TV is set to auto-adjust due to ambient light.

It's HDR. It's normal.

Try a game that doesn't have HDR and it should remain bright.

That's not at all how HDR works unless its switching to the HDR channel and that requires seperate calibration.

HDR for games has been trash. Devs don't seem to know what they're doing.

Depending on the brand of your TV it may have an auto dimming feature that can only be disabled in the service menu. LG, Samsung and Vizio tend to do this as well as many off brand TV's.
