Picked up a UN46F8000 yesterday, and I'm having an issue that I'm hoping some your fine UNXXF8000 experts can help me solve!
I am a gamer, and this Samsung HDTV is both my PC screen and my console screen. It sits on my desk as if it were a PC monitor. I plug my PC and my game consoles into a Yamaha Aventage receiver, and then output the video to my Samsung TV. For PC gaming, in order to reduce input lag and run with 1:1 pixel mapping, I have the HDMI input set to "PC." That mode works completely as advertised. Where it gets weird is when I try to play my new PS4 or Xbox One systems. The ONLY way I can maintain 1:1 pixel mapping with these consoles (or my PC) is to keep the HDMI input set to PC. If I change the input name to anything else - even if I set the Picture Size to "Screen Fit" - I am clearly not getting 1:1 pixel mapping. It's close, but it definitely isn't 1:1. Screen Fit is better than 16:9, but both introduce some blurriness and aliasing that vanish in PC mode.
I could stay in PC mode at all times for all content, and I may ultimately do that, but I also watch HD movies on this TV, and I'd like to be able to use some of the TV's advanced features for that purpose, almost all of which are automatically disabled in PC mode.
I have tried connecting my PS4 via HDMI directly into the TV instead of the receiver to see if that makes a difference, but it doesn't - with my PS4 plugged directly into the TV, HDMI input set to Game, Picture Size set to Screen Fit, this thing is not giving me true 1:1 pixel mapping. The only way to get 1:1 seems to be setting the HDMI input to PC.
What's going on here? Am I doing something wrong? Am I setting something incorrectly?
Many thanks in advance!
