Or digital terrestial tv.
I'll know in a week or so after I've watched all my 4k content I've put off until I got a 4k set.

The only 1080p content I've watched was 3D star trek so far.

I have watched lots of 1080p content on my friends set (same model as me) and it seemed very good especially considering the size. If you sit ~6ft away you don't notice the lower resolution.

Star Trek has some PQ issues. For 3D, you need to be sitting at least 10 feet out to minimize crosstalk and align your seating position to be roughly perpendicular to that of the screen.

The very first thing I noticed when I started a movie was glitches all over the place and very uneven framerates. Disabled the motion processing and a few other things (edge enhancer dynamic contrast etc) and it looked infinitely better. I wish it could smooth out panning scenes on 24fps without glitching but if you want that you should look elsewhere. I'd rather have blurring and constant choppiness than smoother uneven framerates with random glitches.



Kind of off topic but here you go (keep in mind these were from my phone and it's impossible to take accurate pictures with it)

Thanks for that. Strange, I haven't experienced choppy motion with processing off on the S9C. Motion looks natural with processing off. With processing on, that's where I see -- what appears to be -- frame skipping and other motion weirdness.


The LG you pickedup looks great. How does it feel to have a flat panel again? You must be very happy, huh? What I find odd about the S9C isn't the curve, but the tilt of the screen, which I'm unable to adjust. That is why I will not consider the Sony OLED that's due out soon. The tilt on that thing looks even greater. I guess they expect you to set it down the living room floor. (Well, at least you can wall mount that sucker)

Do you get the same cross-talk issue watching Star Trek 3D on the S9C?

You need to be at a minimum of 9-10 feet away to avoid crosstalk on the 65".

I don't think that's true. It varies from panel to panel. My friends 65" was fine at 6ft with 0 crosstalk until he got his panel replaced (for other issues) and his new one is much worse. It has crosstalk on the screen no matter what angle/distance you are at.

I think it has to do with how the 3d layer is applied. Some are not as good as others.

Some people on the LG owners thread claim they can lay on the floor beneath it and have 0 crosstalk. I find that hard to believe but it definitely varies from panel to panel.

I'll be trying out other 3D movies soon that I've seen before so I can compare it to the S9C

Perhaps application of the filter is related, but I've also read about the recommendation of sitting from a distance of 2 diagonal screen widths to optimize 3D presentations.

You probably ought to try a different 3D movie. From what I am hearing Star Trek Beyond is not a very good reference disc at all. People say raised blacks and dark image are what make it less appealing than either the first or second Star Trek movies.

Try out Avatar or any of the Pixar Movies if you have any of them. Much better representations of the capabilities of the 3D capabilities of the set!

On my set, I have to be about 8-9 feet in order to avoid seeing cross-talk. Also being too much lower than on-axis and I start to see cross-talk.

I definitely will soon. 3d versions of Avatar, finding dory, beauty and the beast are next on my list after I finish 4k content. I'll try all of them at different distances. I'll try different depth settings too (though that usually doesn't help).

The S9C motherboard is crazy expensive: $700

I found the same board on Ebay for $450, but the seller wouldn't take less, so I declined. I thought my $250 offer was a fair offer on an untested board.

Here's a snapshot of the "service information" window hidden in the S9C's service menu. The Panel Display Time shows 180 minutes, or 3 hours. On the old board, the display time was in the thousands.

To check the display time on your S9C, do this:

Power Off > Mute > 182 > Power On

Then click on "SVC Info"

To exit the menu, Power Off (when you Power On again, the picture mode will default to Dynamic mode. Reset to Movie mode if that is what you had it to previously.)

One other thing I can offer, that I wasn't aware of, I found that the boards have LED indicators. If you unplug the television, you won't see the LED lights inside and won't know if there's a problem. So make sure you plug the television back in after you remove the back panel, just to see if the indicators light up. Once the LEDs lid up I knew I was back in business.

The large green board on lower left shows a red indicator on top, and the board on top shows three blue LEDs. The white panels in the middle are the power boards.

Wow that really is crazy expensive. I'm selling my entire TV with box/all accessories to a friend for $500.

Cool info on the service menu. I always wondered how many hours I've put on my set.
