My PQ65 arrived yesterday. Got it setup and initial impression were "WOW THAT'S BRIGHT!" Almost too much. Hardwired into my network and the updates pushed pretty quickly. Factory reset afterward.
Hooked my Denon 3300 to HDMI1 and jumped into my XBOX1x. Fumbled around configuring for 4K/DVR and checked the status. Had warnings for HDR in games, and some of the other settings. Went into troubleshooting mode wondering what was going on and finally realize that I hadn't enabled things correctly on the HDMI1 Input. Flipped the switch, logged back into the XBOX and green on everything. Jumped into Forza Horizon 3 and confirmed in-game HDR was active. Pretty cool seeing the shading differences on the cars. 4K resolution is a big jump on the 1080P I was using. NHL19 doesn't look to have in game HDR but the resolution seems to have sharpened things. The menu colors are noticeable more vibrant too.
Fumbled around figuring out ARC audio from TV to receiver, I wasn't previously using it. Finally figured it out on the Denon. I set it for bitstream hopefully allowing the Denon to do the heavy lifting.
Setup my VUDU acct to check out Jurassic World Fallen Kingdom Dolby Vision and it registered as 4K and DV. Looked pretty good, maybe not as clear as the UHD BR disc version. Though seems to have helped with some of the color gradiation in the dark underwater scenes. (hoping I can calibrate some of that out?) When I was looking down my wife got worried because she noticed a green box flash in the lower right hand corner. I didn't see it but remember hearing concerns about that on here. Fast forward an hour or so and I saw it myself. Both times were while using the built in Vudu app. I'm also getting network disconnects fairly regularly. Kicks me out of the movie. I'm using same connection that I've used for my X360 and never had issues. Going to play around with network settings this evening to see if anything helps. Hoping never to see that green spot outside of built-in apps. If I do I'm afraid the TV will have to be returned. If I don't it might be something I can live with. Still disappointing to see on the nicest TV that I've owned.
I did a quick youtube video of the DSE Hockey test. I'm seeing light vertical darkening bars. I believe its only a problem with those very bright screens. Hoping that I don't notice them while using the TV in real world needs.
Has anyone used Disney WOW BluRay for calibrating these newer 4K HDR TV's? I assume it would be well for calibrating non-HDR but that it might not work so well for HDR.
