You worried about the wrong thing. PQ is what it matters in the end. Plasma dithers, OLED does not use traditional RGB subpixels. Only LCD/LED typically use RGB layout. But when a black pixel...

And you think Xbox One S can play all UHD discs without problem? :) And even with games, there are threads here about problem as well.

Did you try output as 1080p? It is not possible to have UHD/4K and 3D at the same time. UHD spec does not include 3D at all.

Not your fault. One S is currently messed up. You are the beta tester for MS. Send them feed back so that they can fix it. Full range RGB doesn't work correctly either.

It is not a bug from LG's stand point of view. So, good luck with any fix. It has been this way forever. Why should they change their mind and just to fix your TV?

A few brands will enable ARC all the time. LG is one of them. This is how they do it for all its TVs. My EA9800 is the same. I simply turn off the SimpleLink and use a universal remote like Harmony....

So, the Onkyo AVR only has "TV+AMP" option, no way to select "AMP" only option? If that's case, any BD player connect to it will have the same problem.

OP is using SPDIF. So the only thing that works is AC3 or DTS for 5.1. None of that is supported by YouTube regardless of the client version.

My reply has nothing to do with Xbox. OP claims PS3 can mix in menu sound while bitstreaming audio.


As for XB1 S, without bitstream, you loss 3D audio like Atmos.

Because you can't mix in Cortana voice when bitstreaming.


No one has the S yet. So why would anyone know this. But I also don't believe MS purposefully makes it incompatible.
