Quick question...I have an LG B8 and have a question about TV recording. Can you only record the program that you are watching? I tried scheduling a recording for a show that was on in the middle of the night and it didn't work.

I was seeing earlier in this thread about someone saying that OLED’s aren’t selling how we think, but I believe LG are finally beginning to churn a profit on the technology, are the best-selling OLED TV brand, with Sony coming in behind them.

I mean, it’d be disingenuous to imply that OLED is a market killer… they most certainly are not, and never will be. A lot of casual buyers out there don’t care much about what they’re buying. They can walk into a Wal-Mart or even a Best Buy and get a 55” 4K LCD television at a starting price of, what, about $350? The casual consumer that does a little research likely aren’t looking to spend two grand on a television either… they want to know what the best bang for their buck is without going really high on a price point. So, they may instead buy something like the TCL 6 series or a Vizio M series or something.

But when it comes to the market of people buying higher end televisions, a lot of people vouch for OLED. They have slowly been gaining market share, despite having high costs and a limited production capacity compared to LCD’s. OLED TV’s were picking up a little steam of QLED’s near the end of 2017 and throughout a bit of 2018. While reviewers often talk about burn-in potential, they’ve pretty much all said that it won’t affect a fair majority of owners unless they’re hell-bent on watching nothing but sports with the same tickers on the screen, or the news with fixed logos on the screen at all times. RTINGS does a pretty comprehensive burn-in test under a number of conditions and you have to be watching the same sort of content A LOT for it to cause burn-in effect. So even a lot of consumers who are on the fence can feel pretty good about that, and a lot of OLED owners will tell you they’ve experienced no issues despite hundreds if not thousands of hours gaming.

LG I believe have recently said to begin production of OLED panels in a second factory or something… because OLED prices were kept a bit higher before – and they have fallen quite a bit over the years – it was partially due to the low production runs. Less units to sell, more money needed to try and churn a profit. But if they can ramp up panel production and make more and theoretically sell more, then we should see OLED prices come down even further. I don’t see LG’s future with OLED to be quite as grim as some.

Micro-LED/LCD is certainly going to be interesting, though. I feel like by the time they become a bit more mainstream, they’re going to be the expensive kid on the block while OLED prices are a bit better for the wallets of people who are serious about picture quality. We’ll just have to see about that all though… we can’t predict the future.
