I am on current firmware 3.21.16. I ran fullscreen pattern and can see the blotch in the upper left corner, and the columns on the right, reliably at 1% and 5%. They're nearly nonexistent at 10%. Should I live with it or try another unit, do you think? I have until Feb. 3 to decide. Thanks!

If it's a new purchase I'd give it a few more hours to settle down, the lines can be pretty common with OLEDs, hopefully the blotch will go. If it's still there in a week to 10 days and it's something you notice during normal viewing, I'd consider a replacement.

Has there been any updates for UK owners and the Apps from BBC, ITV, All4 and My5? Seems weird that they're not included.

Pretty sure 4k TVs count as 4k hardware and technology. And this thread appears to have been here long enough to at least suggest the mods agree. Though odd you suddenly seem concerned with its location now.

I've checked again, and I think my screen IS getting better. Barely noticeable at 5%, still present but not as bad at 1%. For illustration purposes, this is kind of like what I was experiencing, and in the same upper-left portion of the screen, just never anywhere near as bad:

Got the 65" CX in November and I think it's great but gotta say I don't think it's as good at processing video as my Samsung UN48H6350 that I bought clear back in 2014 was, at least not when it comes to content that is low bitrate. When the signal is not pristine, like when not from a blu ray, I'm seeing more banding and macroblocking than I did on the 1080p Sammy by quite a bit. When it's not doing that the picture is fantastic but it does do that stuff when watching Netflix or Youtube or downloaded video or whatever a lot more than I'm use to.

You need to understand that you just went from a 48 inch 1080p TV to a 65" 4K UHD TV. As a rule: the bigger the screen, the more "flaws" you will find in the picture quality of lower quality things, like a Netflix Stream or YouTube video. Those apps are notorious for having very compressed video quality, which is why you are seeing that more. That's why streaming will never be better than something that is on a disc! So, don't knock down the CX. It's an awesome TV!

I mentioned this earlier, but just in case it's helpful even though I have an older OLED (the C6). I was having a lot of problems with bad compression and macroblocking with streaming that just wasn't there on my LCD or projector. It was actually starting to drive me nuts.

At a certain point I realized that by changing the gamma from 2.2 to BT 1886 fixed like 90% of the problem. It may have added a bit of black crush, but I could literally see most of the compression blocking vanish on problematic content I was watching. If you're on gamma 2.2, I'd recommend trying BT 1886 on your SDR picture setting and see if it helps.

That is a great price on a 65" CX. I couldn't imagine that EVO would be "that" much better.

Thats my thinking is it'll take another 4-5 years to outdo the CX to a point that its beyond obsolete...

I've been looking for a new TV for a while and I think I've just about settled on a 55 inch LG OLED55CX5LB.

I currently watch Blu Rays and play games on Playstation 4 Pro and standard Xbox One on a 8 year old standard HD LG TV with very poor sound volume that requires a sound bar. The LG CX series seems to get a lot of praise for being somewhat more affordable than a lot of the high end TVs and sounds as if it has good black levels, colour and HDR. Can someone tell me what the sound is like on these CX series TVs? they look ultra-thin so I'm guessing there isn't much room for speakers.

Also does anyone own the exact model I mentioned? Could you give me a bit of an idea of your general experience with it (picture, sound, everything) as I'm not exactly made of money and would appreciate the opinions of you all as you clearly have a lot more knowledge than I do. I know a bit but I'm hardly an expert.

Thanks in advance.

Yeah I have read FAR too many reviews. I guess It's just cause it's my first time being able to afford to buy a set in the thousand pounds plus range and I'm trying to be cautious.

About 3 years ago my original PS4's disc drive died so I bought a PS4 Pro when there was a decent deal on in a local store(weirdly it was the same price as the regular PS4). Since then I've always been considering A new TV just to take advantage of the HDR games but in the last year or so I've ended up picking up 4K movies because I'm a steelbook collector and often the nicest editions of blu rays for certain titles tend to have a 4K title bundled in with the steelbook version. Technically i was buying for the blu ray itself and the nice steelbook design but I ended up kind of getting 4K discs by default. Seems no reason now not to go ahead with an upgrade since I have both movies and games that will no doubt benefit.

my thought :: contact LG Technical Support :: ASAP

I have the 65" LG GX, Sonos Arc, and Apple TV 4K. I was looking into buying a 4K blu-ray player to play my small collection of 4K discs. I'll need something to convert the DTS so the Arc will play sound since Sonos does not support DTS.

As far as I can tell, the option is to get either a new Xbox One X (I don't game anymore), Panasonic, or Samsung player. Those are the 3 that I've read are able to convert the DTS to a format that the Arc will play.

I do most of my viewing via streaming on the Apple TV 4K, and OTA. I don't subscribe to any streaming service, currently. At my age, I'm assuming this will be my last device that will play discs. (I still have the 1st gen Pioneer LD/DVD combo player, hooked up to a older TV obviously haha.)

When viewing anything on the TV, the screen is a bit brighter on the left hand side, and in completely dark scenes, it is very noticeable. Is this normal? Is there a setting I can do on the LG GX to address this beside pixel refresh? (I've tried pixel refresh 3 times, no improvement.) I bought the TV new. Disable AI? Do I reach out to LG to resolve? (Taking it back to the store I bought it at isn't an option due to the weight of the TV, and the lack of vehicle that it will fit in. I bought the GX last month.)

Obviously pretty much a newbie to this stuff. Back when it was just LD/DVD, everything seemed to look great. Hell, I even remember buying my first stereo VHS player after the salesman demoed "Silverado." He said, "Listen to those bullets land! It's in stereo!" Now we expect perfection. Want to make sure I'm getting what I paid for in my new set-up. Thanks for any advice

My brother just got a 65'' GX after doing the same thing you did and he is elated with it. He does alot of gaming and with the Series X its just another level of gaming...we play alot of Warzone and every time i go to his house im in awe of how good it looks in 120hz with the free sync and gsync running. I have a C8 and i bought my dad a CX and he loves it. Plus the pricing thats going on now is a no brainer.

Thanks for the input Juan. Thinking it might finally be time to place an order this week and get one delivered for Saturday. Since i'm not at work it'll give me all day to tinker and mess around with settings. I'll probably need it, there are so many more options in the modern 4K sets to consider when compared with the humble HD 1080p TV.

Looking forward to seeing what Blu rays, 4K UHD discs and HDR games look like on this.

Does anyone have any recommendations for a 4K Blu ray player that goes well with the LG OLED55CX5LB and is multi region for BOTH Blu ray & DVD and does HDR10? I might as well go the whole nine yards.
