    I would agree with that. Much better picture after 1220.06 update. Have had it installed for a week or two.

    In case you guys are using Game mode instead of PC mode and the TV keeps switching back to PC mode when you want it in Game mode, try this:

    Now the TV will NEVER switch. So much better for gaming on PC in Game mode.

    Hi. I have this tv, had it for about a year or so. Or, i got 60 inch 7/8series.
    I use it for everything, netflix and pc gaming. Only thing i miss is higher hz, my previous plasma could do 100hz+. But gaming on native 4k siting 1-2 meters from it is awesome, gave me a holy crap moment the first time i put on a game, and i have moments im still get a taste of that feeling when i manage to run a game in native 4k with good textures and so on hehe.
    Im wondering, why is pc input better than the rest. Get the impression pc input plus gamingmode is better than just gamingmode on other inputs when reading here. Why and whats better, compared to just using gamingmode on a other input?

    Hi
    what is the top hz please
    and for information the pc is like the mother of other devices so it makes sense when we say that the pc is better for the entries

    @TK423 Have you tried going into picture/expert settings/HDMI UHD color and turning ON for your HDMI port? That will open up more options.

    Anyone else using this tv experience setting black level to low or auto gives much crisper black, contrast compared to normal? Normal black is more grayish, or washed out. From what i read, normal setting is supposed to give better color. For me it seems to be the low. Why is this?

    It depends on what the source device detects as its connection to a display.

    Usually if using HDMI and outputting a CEA-defined resolution such as 1080p@59.94hz to a display with CEA-extensions in its EDID, it will default to what looks to be limited range. It will assume that it should not expand the range in itself and the display will be able to properly compensate.

    If your display is able to change the HDMI black level, you'll want to compensate using the display's menu setting only (use Default color settings in Nvidia Control Panel)
    If your display is not able to change the black level in its menu settings, you'll want to compensate using your source device's settings menu
    (use Nvidia color settings in Nvidia Control Panel).

    When using YCbCr colorspace, the black level setting on most Samsung TV's gets greyed out as YCbCr is designed to only work in one range.

    PC input label (and DVI PC, albeit with a bit more delay and no sound on some Samsung TV's) enable the TV to show 4:4:4 uncompressed chroma



    I just setup a new Samsung UN50NU6900 4k TV for my company's conference room and the settings when calibrated for a computer are as follows (assuming no ICC profile is being used on the source):

    Picture Mode - Standard

    Backlight - depends on the lighting in your environment. Usually no need to go over 50% unless you are using the TV outside.

    Contrast - 100

    Brightness - 45

    Sharpness - 50

    Color - (greyed out in PC mode)

    Tint - (greyed out in PC mode)

    Picture Size - 16:9

    Advanced/Picture settings - Anything with an "Off" setting is set to "Off" or greyed out due to PC mode.

    Gamma/BT.1886 - +1

    HDMI Black Level - Low

    Color Temperature - Warm 2

    White Balance - This depends on the model's year. It changed some year after 2013.
    • A relative's 2013 UN60F8000 = Gain > | -50 red | 0 green | 50 blue |. Leave offsets at 0
    • My 2016 UN40J5200 and company's 2018 UN50NU6900 = Gain > | -25 red | 0 green | 25 blue |. Leave offsets at 0

    UHD Color needs to be enabled for 4k/60hz RGB 4:4:4 as others have already said. If the display flickers, try disabling HDMI audio on the source device.

    These settings are what i have been using for PC-use on Samsung TV's since the 2013 UN60F8000.

    You can test these settings with these images at this site: lagom.nl/lcd-test
