Un60Ks8000 stuck on pc mode

So I use my 60ks8000 as a monitor for 2 computers. I've been having trouble with the PC mode. No matter what I've tried, I can't get it to switch device type to anything other than PC or bluray, both of which drastically change the settings I set while it was a raw hdmi type.

Anyone know a fix? I've searched quite a bit elsewhere with no luck.

PS: It only refuses to change device type with nvidia cards, or integrated graphics. Amd gpus are exempt.

So you are mandatory forced to use PC mode when signal source is HDMI? What happens if you unplug HDMI cable? Are you able to switch to different modes then?

When I go into the edit menu, it allows me to select all the options, but it doesn't actually change the device type (except between bluray and PC), it just says it did in the menu. It changes back to PC mode if I change sources or unplug and plug the HDMI cable back in.

So to update: It would appear that PC mode is mandatorily activated when the pixel format is set to RGB, but not YCbCr.

Nonetheless, the limitation remains if there is no option to change pixel format.

Pixel format has to be changed on source (PC/display driver level), TV won't "convert" on demand.
