2016 LG OLED 65G6P and 65E6P Owners Thread

Folks...
Here it is - my OLED65G6P - Took a few hours to bring it in and semi mount it (Hope LG had better instructions)...
I owned a EF9500 for some time and the sound of thisTV is definitely better...
Posting some pictures here.... and sorry I cannot answer many questions and will do my best as I will not be playing with it until the weekend.

Do you have the Samsung UHD player? The only thing I'm interested in is how different HDR looks on this one.

If it's like the EF9500, you only see it once (on initial setup or after a factory reset).

The sound bar is less ugly than I thought it would be. Very nice, thanks for sharing the pics

Congrats for being the first 2016 OLED owner here.
Thanks for the pics.
602, so a February set.
And yeah, would be great if you could check out some of the AVS disc slides, namely 100% full white and 2-3% near black. Only if you want to of course.

WEB OS comes on only first time.
I don't have a Samsung player - Surfs in HDR Amazon Streaming looks very good..
The sound bar is awkward 0 the install of my E9500 was way cleaner.
Noticed that the smart remote is now able to operate my TIVO Roamio (E 9500 was glitchy).
I cant wait to watch the first Dolby Vision Movie from VUDU - Not sure which will be best - this is a DV capable TV and I am sold on the DV ATMOS .... although I don't have ATMOS in this setup.

I would second that. There are some on this board that have preordered from VE so slides of 100% white, 5%, 4%. 3% near black in pitch back lighting would help our purchasing decision before these ship.

Can you post a white backdrop pic?

most curious about tint/uniformity,

dont really care about vignetting, etc. as long as it isn't crazy. hasn't been an issue on my 9300

one open box 9100 i had had ugly tint that caused me to return it

all we really need to know is... has the near black issue the 9500 has been fixed on this model?, everything else is just gravy

go, drop a 2-5 % near black slide on it and lets have a look at the banding... if there is any

I think we need a poll as to what everybody wants checked. I'm betting uniformity near black is near the top followed by white uniformity.

5% slide is meaningless. Only 1 and 2% will prove if vignetting and uniformity has been definitively resolved.

Thank you... and not to get anyone's hope up I am a total layman on IRE patterns and so forth - we will have to wait for a smarter owner to show up to do the experimenting...

Sorry for the let down...

In the youtube app you can search for "white screen" and there is a video called something like "10 hours of incredible white screen". Would be great to get a pic of that if you dont mind.

Yes it should do a great job at sounding like garbage.

it can depend on how your TV is setup, most vignetting occurs at 2-5 % before dropping off steeply. If your TV is setup to crush blacks to deal with the near black issue you may find vignetting moves to 5%.

Does this set have an hours counter in the general info menu?

its easy mate, the test slides are just MP4 videos, you just play them and take a photo while paused. If you get chance i put a micro pack together. Copy them to mem stick, pop it in a USB port and Take a photo using the 100% white slide, the 2% black and 3% black. Ignore the rest.

No pressure, if you dont want to faff about thats ok, we'll wait for someone else to chime in.

That soundbar looks black in your picture - - previously I have only seen the soundbar look ridged and metallic-brite in all online pictures

Is there perhaps a black grill that goes in front of the soundbar that was included?

If so, I might reconsider getting the model with the soundbar. . .

I think UHD/DV HDR VUDU is only available on the Roku 4 and Vizio televisions for now but eventually it'll be able on your G6.

For everyone else, isn't it best to log some hours before checking for vignetting?
