1. How can I remove "live tv" from the active input list? I thought I told the tv durning the setup wizard that I don't have live tv but there it is.
2. HDR10 UHD 4k discs look incredible! Dolby Vision discs with the "Cinema Home" picture setting seem to have crushed blacks; do I have my black level set incorrectly (low vs high) or should I increase the OLED light beyond 50 like RTINGs recommends if black crush is encountered?
3. I'm running all of my devices (PS4 Pro, UHD player, Apple TV) through a receiver to HDMI 2 (ARC), but that means having to manually enable/disable game mode whenever I'm using the PS4. Is there a workaround for this? If I put the PS4 Pro on its own HDMI port on the television, will it send audio back to the receiver? I'm concerned that only one of the ports is marked ARC...
4. I know that "warm2" is the correct temperature setting, but in many picture modes those options are replaced with a numerical slider; what is the W# value equivalent to Warm2?
1. I don't know if you can remove it, never tried..I don't use it either but I just ignore it.
2. When I first got my C8 everything had crushed blacks, especially DV discs. I had to set my Black Level to High to alleviate it (obviously not the correct setting). Over time though the TV adjusted itself (constantly moved towards less black crush during first 100 hours) and by around 100 hours it was totally fine and I was able to set my Black Level back to Low. So give it time, maybe raise you brightness or change black level like I did, but it will work itself out.
3. You can put the PS4 on a different HDMI input on the TV, then your picture mode will be remembered for that input. Just use the TV's ARC port for the one you connect the receiver's monitor out to, then you should get audio from the PS4 via ARC on the receiver.
4. You probably mean the Standard/Vivid modes, they have a C number for Color Temperature, like C20 on Standard. I don't know exactly what temperature each C number translates to, perhaps someone who knows can chime in...I don't use those modes.
