I don't need to go in to the menu to turn off HDR or manually switch DV Bright/Dark back to Custom SDR. I think that's what you're saying, but this is an important issue for me, so I want to be sure I'm clear on it before considering the A9G. My significant other, watches a variety of shows in different formats on Directv, AppleTV, Netflix, etc, etc. I don't see her going into the menu set up to do any manual switching between formats. Thanks again for responding. I appreciate it.
So you’re saying Sony don’t remember anything? Then I guess I should refuse delivery of the tv. Cus I ain’t gonna manually change settings every damn time I play a game. A tv should remember like the LG.
I really don't understand your question. Of course it remembers your Game Mode picture settings. However, you specifically asked whether the TV will switch between Game Mode when it detects an HDR signal and another picture mode when it detects an SDR mode, which it will not.
"So when I load a game my tv goes HDR game because it remembers. When I quit the game it goes back to expert dark."
The Sony will stay in Game Mode, not go back to another mode, such as Cinema Pro, upon exiting the game. I don't see this as much of a hindrance.
Okay, so this is where the confusion comes in for me. Based on this previous post, it sounds like manual switching on the Sony between sources is required. My Directv, AppleTv, Tivo, Oppo, XBox all go through my Integra receiver with 1 HDMI going out to HDMI 2 input on my LG C7. My original question was if I'm watching something like Directv (SDR), in say custom mode, and switch to AppleTV to watch either an HDR or DV movie, does the set automatically switch to custom mode (HDR) or DV Dark/Bright mode and if so, does it then switch back to custom mode (SDR) when I go back to Directv. I watch various content, mostly through the WebOS on LG, Apple TV and Oppo and the LG not only notifies you in the upper right corner what mode it's switching to (HDR or DV), but it automatically switches to the calibrated setting you have set up and pre-selected for that mode and it automatically switches back to the calibrated settings for whatever it was you were watching previous. Bottom line, the switching on LG requires you to do nothing as it's all automatic, but it sounds like the Sony requires you to manually select the picture setting when you switch. Can anyone clarify?
