I still just want to know if there is a difference in SDR vs HDR with that low of an OLED setting. I cant imagine there is. Also does anyone know why DV uses an OLED value of 50 at default vs the 100 for HDR and yet DV looks superior (at least to me) on my C6.

hopefully this is helpful :: you're correct (SDR/HDR - same setting - although difficult to explain)
OLED Light :: essentially the same (setting)
regarding how Dolby Vision affects settings :: unlikely anyone will definitively know (at this point not very well documented) - (although Dolby Vision is a 'very advanced' comprehensive solution - they really know what they are doing')

note :: OLED Light (setting) :: use what you like (trust your eyes) :: don't listen to anyone otherwise (it's subjective)
(objective? :: professional calibration? - although difficult to explain)

Well every pro calibrator says OOTB you should not turn down oled light,contrast,brightness,color,that will mess with tone mapping.

Shield is right, my tv is pro calibrated and oled light/contrast is set the same as it came out of the box stock. If you change it then it does mess with the tone mapping etc. and the 2017 models should have dynamic contrast set to low for active HDR in less your or you calibrate with out it.

My 65E6P, after 1 year and 1 month, bit the dust yesterday. Screen freaked out and then went black. Sound, no picture. I was able to start it up a couple more times, but each ended in a back screen after a couple minutes. A quick google shows its very common. For what LG is charging, they are ripping people off. Their electronics suck. I will never buy another one. Switched over to a Sony A1E. Yes, its an LG panel, but with Sony electronics and standards. Never had a Sony die before I was done with it. The LG is the only TV I've ever had die on me period.

You can Google any TV brand/model and find many folks with defect issues. Factory defects and power surges damage many tens of thousands of TVs every year.

With 13 months of ownership LG would typically give you a courtesy repair for good will. Have you tried contacting LG?

PM me if you want some advice.

I've just confirmed by appointment with Jeff Meier to have my display calibrated on the 11th of April... I cannot wait!
To-morrow, and to-morrow, and to-morrow,
Creeps in this petty pace from day to day,
To the last syllable of recorded time;
And all our yesterdays have lighted fools
The way to dusty death. Out, out, brief candle!
Life's but a walking shadow, a poor player,
That struts and frets his hour upon the stage,
And then is heard no more."

That is great to hear. He is coming, I believe, from Missouri all the way down to Texas!

What are your guys' opinions on vertical banding and slight imperfections of this type when it comes to your displays. I've recently noticed vertical banding on gray warnings before the film. I had also noticed ghosting of the letterbox bars, which only got removed by the manual pixel refresher. I know that no display is perfect, so I'm thinking of just relaxing and take it as it comes. It doesn't affect the picture quality at all, btw. Also, what do you think of pixel refresher, yay or nay?
