I know how to change it to the preset names. Was wondering whether I could change it to a unique name.

While I'd check the manual, I'll go with no. Here's why.

The "name" of the input also sets its capabilities. For example when the name is set to PC then other features are enabled.

Strange but that's how it works today.

Editing the preset input names is not possible.

While you can choose from the list, as noted above the preset names can sometimes enable or disable certain features - though usually those features are associated with the needs of the connected device (such as camcorders, cameras, computers, etc.).

While it may not be the answer you wanted, I hope that answers the question.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
