Auto Game Mode

Hi

 

I've been having trouble getting auto game mode to work with my xbox one x. When I first unboxed the TV and went through the setup guide it automatically recognised the xbox as a games console and automatically switched to game mode when I loaded a game up. After tweaking some settings (can't remember which exactly) auto game mode on the tv is now greyed out. I reset the TV again the other day and the function worked again but then after changing some picture settings it no longer works!

 

TV is a nu7500

 

Any ideas?

 

Thanks.

I never found a permanent solution. Only way to get it working was to factory reset the TV! But then as soon as you change a few settings on the TV (still not sure which settings) the option is no longer available.

 

Was hoping it was more widespread tbh as can't find anything online.

I got the same issue here, don't know if resetting to factory mode will work, don't want to go through the hassle of doing it.

I got this issue with a samsung nu8000 and an xbox one s, auto game mode does work witb the ps4.

@AlanGalaxy: As Game Mode is designed to optimise your TV's settings when connected to a console, I recommend that you avoid further customisation of the Picture and Sound settings when it is enabled to see if this helps. As a troubleshooting step in the meantime please ensure that your Xbox One X is connected via HDMI to the HDMI-STB port (if applicable), as this is best for consoles, while HDMI-DVi is best for PC's.

this happened to me with the RU7100 i bought earlier this year, it was because during cable management i swapped the HDMI connections - it was fixed when I connected the xbox back into hdmi2 instead of hdmi1

I know this might be late but, first make sure your Samsung tv is set to auto for game mode under external device manager. Next what actually fixed it was going on my Xbox one x settings > display & sound > video output > video modes > then make sure that "Allow auto low-latency mode" is on by having the box check marked.

Sorry to hijack this thread, but I was wondering if it was possible for my RU8000 to distinguish between a game and a movie disc/streaming app when game mode is set to auto?  

My display automatically configures itself when the XB1S is connected and even further adjusts once you enable all 4K and HDR features on the console. The picture and game mode settings are saved for both SDR and HDR modes the console switches to, but even though both settings have game mode set to auto, when a DVD, Blu-ray, 4K Blu-ray or a streaming app is launched it acknowledges and detects a change yet game mode is left on. It's simple enough to go into settings and manually turn off and on game mode, but then what's the point of the auto option?

 

Asside from this, I am very impressed with the 4K picture when gaming in both SDR and HDR. Especially with Freesync enabled.

I have the same issue with my Q60r 65" TV, when I play any DVD, Blu-Ray or 4K DVD my Xbox one X stays in game mode.  As you've said, you can go in and manually change this but it should recognize that I'm watching a DVD and play in normal mode.  Am I missing something.
