A dealer local to me says LG's 65" and 77" UHD OLED TVs will be available in August.

I believe that, they already announced Q2 for the 77", MSRP of $29,999...expect the 65" to be over $10,000 for sure...I'll wait a couple of years to get it and maybe buy a boat with the savings instead smile.gif

I will get my 65LA9700 tomorrow and I saw the viewing angle (installation height on the wall) is kind of important. Is there a recommended height from ground for best viewing result?

 

Thanks

James

The best height should be eye level for the middle of the screen, now sometimes that's not possible due to people's configurations etc, in that case make sure you get a tilting mount so you can title the screen downward so you are again looking at it at eye level perpendicular to the center of the screen. And yes, for this TV especially the height is very important, vertical off angle viewing is not great and 3D just plain doesn't work if you are off vertically.

Welcome to the forums and hope you enjoy the new set!

Can anyone please be kind enough to make a tutorial for noobs on going about converting/downloading/playing videos that will play on this mytery of a television. I have the Indian version with HVEC on the box, but NONE of the 4K videos I try playing play on it. No matter what size what codec anything! Not even a H.265 1080p video!
Please help!

I could not get any H.265/HEVC videos to play either, if you do let us know, especially since you have the Indian version which advertises HEVC all over it. To get an H.264 4K video to play, try this:

1) Download 4K Video Downloader (http://www.4kdownload.com/products/product-videodownloader)
2) Install and run the app
3) Copy this URL: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LK0FpxQ4Ink
4) Click Paste URL in 4k Video Downloader app
5) You will see a window with various selection, make sure "Original Quality 4K" is selected
6) Pick a folder to download to and click Download
7) Put the downloaded file on a USB stick and plug it into the TV and play it.

That should work, once you get that working maybe try some of these HEVC videos:

Let us know how it goes...

Thanks so much TallCoolOne. You really are the soul of this thread.

Actually i have tried that method. It works but the level of compression takes a lot of magic away. I wanted to try playing/encoding videos of a higher bit/frame rate. But i guess there are limitations.

As far as HVEC is concerned. As you mentioned earlier i had tried a 1020P sample from that site. Didnt work. Nor did the tears of steel video. So i guess false advertising on the part of lg india. Lots of work still to be done on this set.

One a different note, i am experiencing some clouding on 4 corners of the set. I have a 55inch version. Is this normal for an lg flad? Because this wasnt present on my sony hx925.

The manual lists this for bitrate limits:

3840 x 2160 (H.264 L5.1) : 50Mbps (megabits per second)
3840 x 2160 (HEVC L5.0) : 25Mbps (megabits per second)

50Mbps should be pretty good if it can do that, I haven't tried anything that high...I can try it later.

As for the clouding, no i don't see that on my 55" but did on the bottom right when I initially got it...I was able to pretty much eliminate it after calibration though.
