This Sony owner has already had his set upgraded to HDMI 2.0, as indicated in post #79:
EVERY ONE NEED TO CALL LG EXECUTIVE SERVICE AT 877-543-8325 REGARDING THE NEED FOR 2.0. FOR THE 84LM9600.
THERE IS STRENGTH IN NUMBERS AND NOTING WILL HAPPEN IF CONSUMERS DON'T DEMAND FOR A SOLUTION FOR A TV THAT RETAILS FOR $20,000!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
IF SONY AND SAMSUNG HAS ALREADY TAKEN ACTION WE NEED TO DEMAND ACTION BY YEARS END LIKE THEY HAVE COMMITED TO.
CALL TODAY !!!!! LG EXECUTIVE SERVICE AT 877-543-8325 REGARDING THE NEED FOR 2.0. FOR THE 84LM9600.
LET OTHERS ON THIS LINK KNOW YOU CALLED
I don't own this TV do you?
For those who bought it or thinking about buying it the set will be a dinosaur in one year if action is not taken.
You are right it will come but maybe not for this model. My email might not be as important to you but to others I think they need to know what the other manufactures are doing loud and in caps.
I'm looking to buy this TV very soon but not the way it stands now. I want a commitment from LG.
It seems to me it does not matter to you if 2.0 ever comes to this model TV or you know someone at LG.
I understand that LG "MIGHT" be working on 2.0. How would you feel if they don't do it?
I learn something every day of my life and want to share what I know with others.
We should not take it for gospel that everyone knows about 2.0 HDMI. I was hoping you called LG to ask for 2.0 did you?
I don't work for Sony Samsung or any other major manufacturer. I presume you don't either or do you?
You can disagree with me but I do care about other consumers buying something that possibly will loose major dollars by seeing this model TV go "crashing" in selling price after they have paid $20,000.
Hope you understand my position now.
Toshiba Rolls Out UHD TVs, Offers HDMI 2.0 Update! WHEN WILL LG COMPLY!
Irvine, Calif. — Toshiba said Thursday that its first three Ultra High-Definition TVs are now available at select retailers across the country and will soon receive a firmware update to support the new HDMI 2.0 standard.
The TVs in the 58-inch ($3,999 suggested retail), 65-inch ($5,499) and 84-inch ($16,999) screen sizes are part of the company’s L9300U series, and as a limited-time launch promotion, the company said it will bundle with each set purchase its BDX6400 Ultra HD up-scaling Symbio Blu-ray player and SBX5065 300-watt sound strip for on additional cost.
“We are proud that Toshiba’s 4K Ultra HD TVs are now available at quality retailers across the country,” said Scott Ramirez, Toshiba America Information Systems digital products division product marketing and development VP. “We are providing the highest quality product and the highest value by offering a free 4K up-converting Blu-ray player and a dynamic soundbar to create an unmatched home-theater experience.”
The L9300U-series TVs include Toshiba’s proprietary second-generation Cevo 4K Quad+Dual Core Engine to up-scale SD and HD images to fit extra pixel lines (3,840 by 2,160 total) on the Ultra HD screen.
Other features include Resolution Restoration, Color Restoration and Surface Brilliance Enhancement, as well as a gun-metal trim design and matching frame stand.
The sets also add ClearScan 240Hz refresh-rate technology for smooth-motion images, Expert Mode and ColorMaster Calibration Capability, and an advanced Cloud TV platform for access to streaming services as well as mobile devices. This includes a wide collection of media apps with ongoing upgrade capability, an open web browser with included wireless keyboard, MediaShare to access content from other DLNA-enabled devices, MediaGuide TV programming guide with advanced search, Skype video calling, streaming news, and built-in Wi-Fi and WiDi for both router and peer-to-peer wireless capabilities
Toshiba said the sets ship with HDMI 1.4 inputs (which supports up to 4K/30p frame rate), but the company will provide a free firmware upgrade to HDMI 2.0 level capability in December to support 4K/60 fps content.
“Toshiba is leading the industry in 4K Ultra HD technology,” said Ramirez. “While many brands are just getting started in Ultra HD, our Cevo 4K engine is second-generation technology. Now we are adding HDMI 2.0 level capability so users can enjoy our amazing picture quality with higher-speed 60 fps 4K content.”
I could not agree more with this article. I so much wanted to by the LG 84inch 4K but LG has been very quiet to make good for 4K. After reading their disclaimers in marketing they are not liable to perform the 2.0 HDMI conversion. I have told owners in my previous posts to "call and call" LG to try to make them comply. If the average owner is happy the way it is I guess noting will ever be done.
I believe in strength in numbers for results.
I'm considering purchasing for a hold over 75 inch 8000 series set by Samsung till most 4K compatibility specs are ironed out. For the mean time I hope owners will continue to call LG about 2.0 even if they had called before.
