I came across this step-by-step guide on the NVidia website that includes a number of screen shots from an owner of a 2015 JS
series television that would pretty much cover most of the TV settings for guys who are looking to use their Samsung TV as a computer monitor:
2015 Samsung 4k TV as a Monitor Set Up Guide
I presume similar steps would be followed for those hooking up a game console as well.
Just to save you guys some time, to make a long story short we were mystified why some guys could see the options to Edit Device Type
while others, like myself, could not which had been discussed over the course of many posts on this thread. To make a long story short, if you have setup the Samsung Universal Remote to control your equipment hooked up to your HDMI ports you end up loosing that option which ends up getting replaced by Delete Universal Remote
For more on that you can read the following post of mine that includes some screen shots as well:
Let Me Entertain Us!
In order to get the Edit Device Type
to return to the list you would need to click on Delete Universal Remote
but not something I am prepared to do because I have my gear running just the way I want without remote clutter.
But what I did find out while reading the guide on the NVidia site is if you still want the Game
setting as your Picture Mode
you can merely go into Menu >> System >> General >> Game Mode
and turn it On
there where you can then modify the picture settings to your hearts content and also maintain your unique settings on the other HDMI inputs. For the next little while I will be experimenting with this setting on the input I have my HTPC plugged into which I primarily use for watching HDR YouTube videos and doing my email, word processing and spreadsheets on the big screen.
Perhaps the die hard gamers would want to eliminate every single bit of lag and therefore forego using the Universal Remote Control feature and activating the Game settings in both the Edit Device Type
menu and the General
menu as depicted in the guide and the thumbnails below.
After experimenting with the Game Mode
turned On I have turned it Off and gone back to my original settings. Although I have read a number of posts saying that the Game mode does have a negative effect on picture quality (presumably to reduce lag), I have come to realize that this is a trade off most gamers are willing to accept and rightfully so since every nanosecond can have a consequence when playing computer games.
For my purposes, since I don't use my HU9000 + SEK-3500 as a gaming monitor, I prefer the Movie picture mode with my usual array of settings which also happen to be customized for each of my HDMI inputs.
