Depending on what I'm watching and what time I'm watching it, I often switch between different picture modes. This is generally just for brightness. As of yet, I haven't had a TV with automatic brightness that works well enough that I don't need to switch several times a day.

Of all of the TVs I've had, as of yet I've never had one I could find discrete codes to be able to change the brightness, either directly or by switching picture modes. I have been doing macros, but they take a while and are obviously problematic.

I was hoping that I might get some suggestions for 4k TVs that would have appropriate discrete codes.

If you tend to use the same settings at different times of day, perhaps you could redefine some of the preprogrammed settings, such as “standard” and “movies”, then call these with a discrete or simple macro.

sometimes discrete picture control is only available using IP or RS232 commands.

Do you have that capability with the remote/control system you are using?

For instance, if you go to the my Samsung TV RS232 thread in the RS232 section below, you will see that you can trigger all the picture modes discretely.

Most of the Samsung models that I use have an RS-232 port, there is a free USB dongle available from distributors that will allow RS-232 control for models that do not have the port. I'm not sure if the really cheap big box store models support this or if the dongle is available through that sales channel. Setup for using the dongle may not be straight forward.

I currently use the predefined picture modes and just use a macro, but the macro is very long, because of the way the GUI is setup.

I only have IR currently.

Most units that I am aware of have only a Picture Mode and Picture Size toggle via IR.
