It actually was a Fathom thing, so thatís no surprise. I was mistaken with my earlier post though, I did go to a different theater back in April that was not a Fathom showing but remember thinking the same thing re:black levels (although their sound system blew mine out of the water).

I've had 05.70.55 for quite awhile. I have an OLED65GDP, which was one of the last 3D sets.

Back in Sept & Oct I almost bought a 65" G2 but ultimately decided on the 65" Samsung QN90B which has been great and I really enjoy it....but I could never get the G2 out of my mind and last Monday went in and purchased a 77" G2. I don't think I've ever purchased two new TVs that close together before but the Samsung is not going back, instead, it will move to my upstairs living room. Once I get the G2 delivered it will stay in the box for a few weeks until my pre-order Denon X4800H arrives from a different store hopefully by mid-January. I guess that will give me time to look for optimal picture settings ect.

I've had a C7 and C9 for a while now- I got a hell of a deal on a 55" B6 ($100!)
but the tv was a bit too backwards in tech for me (a year older than the 7 and more basic because it is a B) and also too big for my bedroom (with some light PS4 gaming) in most ways.

I currently have the B6 listed locally for sale and I ordered a 48" A2 half off from best buy. I've read and compared RTINGs, but I'm wondering for a bedroom set, thats entry model LG OLED and 5 years newer than the C7 so I should be pretty happy right? Any similar experiences?

I'm not worried about lack of hdmi 2.1/120hz for the price- my C9 handles that for PS5

Just listen to them when they tell you not to copy the things under the White balance heading.
I used rtings for my C2 settings and it is fine. Did not copy the White Balance settings, though in the future I may dive into this type of calibration and invest in colorimeter and software. Also love BT 1886 vs 2.2.

Hey! Those of you that have a Panasonic 420, 820, or 9000 4K UHD player that is paired up with your LG TV, I am currently experimenting with the Dynamic Range Adjustment Slider in the HDR Optimizer menu on my 820 to see if that will help with the issues that LG's DTM has (overcooked/too bright of a picture).

So far, I've noticed that when going down about 6-7 clicks on the slider, the overcookedness of the picture goes away and it looks like a very normal picture. If any of you have a Panasonic 4K UHD player, you may want to do this as well. Just make sure you turn on DTM.

anyone dealing with errant black frames popping up when playing back videos from a locally provided USB?

I thought it was because some of the video was 60 FPS, but I down converted some to 24/30 FPS, but it I keep seeing random black frames.

Question for y’all. I’ll be upgrading to the LG G2 display and am wondering about the HDMI 120hz spec. Will I need to change out my current cables? Everything is running through a Sony Sony STRDH770 receiver. I can’t find any info about how the HDMI ports rate, other than support for Ultra HDMI, which is what my current Cables are. I’ve read that 120hz is basically for gamers. We use our TV for streaming content, usually via Apple TV. Am I good to go with my current set up? Thanx in advance.

If you’re not using 4K120 or 8K you’re good.

Unless you're playing games at 4k 120hz then don't worry about it just use what you have.

Alright my fellow LG OLED owners, I finally can say that I have figured out the solution to the issues with LG's Dynamic Tome Mapping. Now the solution only works if you have a Panasonic 420, 820, and 9000 4K Blu-ray player because of their HDR Optimizer and Menu. I'm not sure if other manufacturers have these options on their 4K players. None the less, here we go:

As many of you know, LG's DTM has issues with overcooking/over brightening the picture (especially in the midtones). I am a full supporter of using DTM, because for the most part it does a great job with the picture. But it still annoyed me that some scenes are way too bright.

Now I also have a Panasonic 820 and I use the HDR Optimizer set at Super High Luminance. I believe that LG TVs do a great job tone mapping HDR content up to about 1,400 nits. That's why I have it at that setting. But that still didn't solve the over brightening issues with LG's DTM.

The solution to it is actually in the Panasonic HDR Optimizer menu. There is an option called Dynamic Range Adjustment. It's a slider that will adjust the overall APL of the picture. I started messing around with it and discovered when adjusting the slider down, it brings the picture back down to how it should look. The setting I have it on now is -6. I have been bouncing between -5 0r -6, but I believe -6 is right.

There are no overblown areas and the picture looks almost identical to a Dolby Vision version of a film like The Avengers or the first 2 Harry Potter films. Now when I plug in almost any film, it just looks right. So, I ask those who have a Panasonic 820 or the other ones that have the HDR Optimizer, to look into these settings. Because now I have a dynamic picture rather than a static APL picture that looks right and not overblown like it would be on default!

That's a nice argument. However, I prefer just leaving the original HDR10 on.
If I want Dolby Vision on UHDs, I would just look for Russian torrents that spliced in the DV metadata from streams to the UHD remux.
Now if the Panasonic Blu-ray players can convert HDR10+ to Dolby Vision on the other hand, I would be much more interested.

I prefer DTM Off for dark rooms (HGiG for games), and On for bright rooms (but I mostly prefer watching/playing in the dark).

Random question but a recently aquired a sony bluray player and had a spin of the batman uhd on my lg oled tv.

However as it automatically went to cinema home mode and trumotion was automatically on, i noticed several times, when there was a bright light in a otherwise very dark scene (like when you see the pole dancer in the background with the overhead lights on after falcone talks to selina, or after the riddler places the bomb on colsons neck and flashes a blue light 2/3 times) there were very noticeable flashes of fairly big black square pixels (maybe artifacts)

Is my tv broke. I had a look online and if i turn the picture mode to cinema, or just turn trumotion off it removes the black pixels or artificats in the scene but it is darker overall and less detailed in darker areas.

I would turn trumotion off or is it best to keep it on?

Are there things one should look for when picking up a new OLED? screen uniformity-wise?

I'm still hoping for LG to return to 3D. Maybe next year.
Glasses-free 3D OLED laptops have been made by ASUS (though I don't know where they got the screens, I'm hoping it's LG Displays).
I hope this innovation (and also Avatar: The Way of Water's success) would get LG to add glasses-free 3D on their OLEDs.

Look for dead pixels and excess banding on a 5% grey pattern
