Noob setting questions

Guys, please forgive the foolish question. In my dedicated theater space I/we play video games, watch tv, YouTube, and movies. I am neither an audio nor video geek. I enjoy both but don't fixate on perfection. My question is do you guys have a different "preset" or "setting" for different things? A movie setting and a TV setting and a video game settings? To be honest I'm fine with the speakers themselves how I have them in any setting. My thoughts are more along the subs. I enjoy bass in music and movie, but don't need that much watching tv. I can't be alone in this am I? Or am I just nuts?

For most game use or TV watching you might want to just want to switch the subs to OFF!

That's what I do.

It really depends on the game and TV program. In some cases the low bass frequencies do a lot to enhance the experience.

You'll have to find the settings which work best for you. Some receivers (e.g. from Denon or Marantz) have several "smart setting" buttons (Music, Movie, Game) that'll memorize all of the current settings so you can recall them with a single press of a button.

Marantz SR7009 avr + MM9000 amp --> Atmos 7.1.4
Fronts=NHT 2.9+AC2, FH+TM=DefTech PM1000, LCR+TM amped

The smart settings sound like what I'm thinking of. I don't think my Yamaha RX-V477 has that option.
