But for some reason, when I hit the button for preset 2, which is TV...it keeps showing HDMI 3, and it should be HDMI 2
Edit - both Berland & audioguy are saying about the same things I'm saying below. They beat me to the Post button. But maybe a different way to explain it may be of help so here goes.
Select the Input 1st not the Preset.
Since you assigned Preset 2 to Input 2, when you select Input 2 1st, Preset 2 will automatically get selected to go with it. The way you're explaining it, it looks like you are doing it backwards - selecting the preset and expecting the input to change to match. It doesn't work that way.
You are still free to pick any other preset for a different target curve for example. If earlier you had HDMI 3 on, picking preset 2 would not
automatically change it to HDMI 2. But picking Input 2 will automatically pick preset 2 if you assigned preset 2 to Input 2.
You are free to use Preset 2 or any preset for any other input at any time. The 2 are not married together other than an assigned preset will get selected first when you
pick that input. It's a convenience nothing more.
Summary - pick the input 1st and the Altitude will pick the preset that you assigned to it. If it worked the other way, you could never use that preset for anything but that specific input and that definitely isn't the case.
Hope this helps you in your learning the ropes.
As an aside, personally I've leave all my presets unassigned because each one may have a different target curve, specific speaker layout, subs/no subs, & I want to pick & choose these no matter what input I use
Some want the auto selection because they've set up a specific preset & possibly target curve for a specific source, some like me are source-agnostic so we choose presets & change them on-the-fly to try different target curves, PEQ's, sub management, all independent of the source.
