I use my ps3 for a bluray player right now. right now I have my ps3 set to use HDMI1(my 'movie' preset) because I play games on the xbox, and rarely if ever on the ps3(I don't really like it for gaming, so only play the exclusives). but I've heard that the PC mode will only work if you send a RGB 60hz signal into the tv. if you send 24hz or the non-RGB signal, it will jump out of the PC mode and work normally. on the ps3 you can set it so that games output RGB and blurays output the non-RGB so it should still work automatically, I think. that's only with PC mode though, game mode should work with any input, so you'd have to change inputs manually, still not a huge deal though, only one button push.
remember, if you 'split' the hdmi outputs, which is what should be happening with your receiver, the ps4 will be connected to BOTH inputs on the tv all the time. you don't have to turn game mode off, you just switch inputs. and for what it's worth, if you calibrate the image, then turn on game mode, and calibrate again, then turn off game mode, it goes back to your first calibration. it'll save a calibration for 'normal', game mode, and pc mode on each input. you don't have to recalibrate every time
Hello all , I just signed up !
I have an issue ,hope someone can help me.
The problem is that since last may 2014 mijn pc output hdmi on the hdmi input of the tv is not recongnized by the tv. So no picture on my Samsung.
I tried several cables and hdmi inputs, update the drivers from my videocard, reset bios on my motherboard, diverent pc's and even had contact with Samsung, did few factory settings with no results. A technician came to take a look and he concluded it is a software issue.
I bought this tv in february and everything worked fine until May this year, is this a firmware issue?
According to Samsung they don't expect any new firmware update.
If I rename the hdmi input to "PC" the desktop is recognized during start up but then I only can choose from the STANDARD or AMUSEMENT setting in my picture settings and no MOVIE setting is possible.
Since I use the desktop to watch movies from this is an issue for me.
The strange thing is that if I disconnect my bluy-ray player from the hdmi 3 ARC, I just can start up my desktop on hdmi and it is recongnized right away.
This used to work until May with the blu-ray connect to the ARC.
Can anyone help me out?
