Sorry for stealing your format of signature, but I wanted you to see my setup in case of replying or asking about it.
I know your directions are for Full RGB 60Hz desktop setup, but first there is no reason for me, because this is a HTPC only PC and I don't want it to change resolutions every time I start and stop a movie as all my movies and series are in 23.976Hz. Second, my setup PC->Pioneer->LG TV is struggling when changing resolutions. It takes more than 7, 8 or maybe 10 seconds to change format (HDR<->SDR or 2D<->3D) or refresh rates.  

@brazen1 :I'm still not clear on what "RGB 4:4:4" means. "YCbCr 4:2:2" is a little more apparent to me as that is the name of a setting I can select under "Output Color Format" in the Nvidia Control Panel. But I don't see one called "RGB 4:4:4". I do see an "RGB". 

These are my current settings. Do these sound about right or do I have something wrong here?

@zxaura1 :
I too have an HTPC only PC - Is there a reason you have selected "YCbCr 4:2:2" over "RGB"?

Thanks! 
 You don't see it because 4:4:4 is "Full" vs 4:2:2 which is "Limited aka 0-255 vs 16-235.  All devices output a dynamic range.  Some you can choose the range, some you can't.  All my hardware offers a choice so I set everything to 4:4:4.  For those you can't and you are limited to only what is offered, a combination is used to achieve the final range.  Even software offers the choice including KODI.  Your settings are fine assuming the rest of your hardware and software are harmonious with those GPU settings.  A quick way to know is if your black bars are BLACK and not grey.  And I mean BLACK.  If they are grey, something in your chain is off or you need to calibrate.
