I have a question directed at anyone with experience with Samsung's HDTVs as I am having trouble with the Picture settings. My Tv is the Samsung PN51D490 51 inch 720p 3DTV.
Most advanced Settings like Dynamic Contrast, Color Space etc. are grayed out while in HDMI mode.
Even regular settings like Tint and Color are grayed out. Picture options only allow me to change Color Tone.
I tried switching from "Entertain" mode to "Standard" mode but all those option remain unchangeable.
Game mode is grayed out as well in HDMI, TV and PC mode as well.
Advanced options are only enabled in TV mode as well as the Tint, Color etc.
Please let me know how I can get around this issue.
Look in here for threads on your TV, especially check out the owner's thread.
Apparently, if you change the name of the source to "PC" it limits your options like this. Change it to another name and everything will come back again!
I've been pulling hairs off my head for years now trying to figure out what you just told me. I registered just to tell you this since i don't do forums. The person who designed that functionality deserves to trip over his own balls.
Thank you for posting the solution. Have a beer on me.
