I've seen a lot of HDR. As far as I know, all HDR content is UHD also, so I'm not sure how you can separate the two.

I've also watched a lot of non-HDR UHD.

IMO, UHD is more impressive than...

There's very little to be gained by LG to continue producing their 2015 lineup. They'll be putting everything into their 2016 lineup. They may lose a few sales to budget minded people, but it will be...

Couldn't you set the gain lower on the less powerful sub so they both max out at the same time?

The updates on my 940c take a long time to complete. I would guess the Marshmallow update will take hours.

China manufactures more than the US now. Mainly because of lower costs, but they never would have gotten to where they are if they only made crap. I look at China now as being like Japan in the 1970s.

It seems like many view the success of 3D in black and white terms. Since everything is not shown in 3D, it's a complete failure. I don't view it as a success or failure. It's a feature that many...

I assume LG has stopped making them and whatever inventory remains will gradually get discounted until they sell.

No different than every other TV line.

Phone and internet work fine. Maybe 4x a year our internet goes out, but it's usually because the router they supply goes awry and resetting usually fixes it.

That's the same thing that killed Apple in the late 80s/early 90s. Everyone made PCs while only Apple made Macs.

Whatever you get, make sure you get one with a trigger and has no cooling fans. The Emotiva above is a good option.

Your friend is an idiot for offering you $5k for your TV (No offense to your friend). So whether or not you sell depends on how much you like your friend.
