I'm getting really frustrated with this 65KS8000, this tv is so smart it's dumb (why Samsung..?).
The initial setup where it should sense the signal and determine what the source is never works with my pc yet every time I switch sources via AVR (and back to pc) it then detects the pc and changes over to pc mode even though that is not what I have it set at.
I am using a single input on the breakout box (not ARC) and simply want the single input to stay put (hold settings) regardless of the source that I feed it through the AVR, this is the first display I have seen that makes this simple task something more complicated. I have tried with HDMI-CEC off and on.
If HDR should have backlight at 20 and Smart LED at high why does this not automatically switch when it detects an HDR signal.
Also when I have to set the TV's settings back to Game after it sets them to PC I have to turn game mode off and then back on but only after switching from PC/Game Console/Blu Ray Player and back (it's as if it resets everything).
I cannot imagine that everyone using a single breakout box input via AVR just deals with this type of issue so I am wondering if this is possibly a defect in my particular unit?
This is on firmware 1168 via the internal online method, I am tempted to try the newer downloadable firmware but see that it may have other issues.
I am honestly shocked that this caliber of (such a well regarded) display has issues so late in its life cycle (now discontinued), one would think the bugs would be ironed out by now.
I scanned through the AVS pdf and did not see this issue mentioned. I'd hate to return this unit as we enjoy the great image but I am not going to mess with these settings every time I turn it on or change sources.
Thank you for any insight, much appreciated.
