I went through the same motion issues when I first got the set too, and weird anomalies when changing settings, etc.. and I've posted the same thing as you..
I also noticed with many tweaks in other picture modes, some settings drift into other picture modes, especially gamma, and effect that picture mode when you switch to it.
A manual Reset of the picture mode will fix it until you switch to the offending picture mode again..
An unplug + reboot fixes this until the next time settings decide to become "sticky"..
For now, just reset Standard mode to default settings in picture settings (just to make sure you didn't mess with anything), and just turn Trumotion off.. and Energy Saver off.. that's all.. picture is great.. colors may not be ISF colors, but they are acceptable until LG programmers fix these issues.
In this mode, blacks are black, every once and while you may see some blocky blacks based on content, but for the most part everything looks great.. even though it may not be spot on color wise.. I watched Survivor on Netflix and it looked fine, just like the image of it that other person posted.. totally watchable.. the top and bottom bars were true black, maybe some blocky artifacts right when it started around the white logo.. but nothing else
A lot of issues seem to be based on blacks, and near blacks..aside from yellow stain which is a true issue and should be exchanged...
This set is known for true blacks, something just isn't working right in the firmware right now, especially trying to upscale near blacks from 1080 to 4k. ..and we need to wait on LG to fix it (I hope they fix it). Their vanilla webos may be good for all their other LED/LCD's but I think the OLED will need some special firmware attention due to the ability to show true black, which I assume they are working on since update via TV was disabled on the US site...and many Korean firmwares are out that mention motion issue improvements in each release since the official US release.
Sure it would be nice if TruMotion worked like its supposed to, we paid for it, it should work as advertised..and I may even start to like it if it wouldn't glitch out and stutter like others have said.. but I'm sure it's just not fine tuned for this set yet. When it's working it does make the picture razor sharp even more to the point of soapy looking, but even with a setting of 1 or 2 it will glitch up after a while..something needs some tweaking here, LG!
I watched a 65UF6500 over the weekend, with Trumotion on all the time and it looked fine.. no glitching, etc. but the picture could not compare to the EF9500 even on its worst day with everything disabled .. They seem to have Trumotion working on their LED sets without glitch, but I would hope they would push all programmers to work night and day on their flagship, especially since an issue clearly exists.
Every once in a while I turn TruMotion on and watch with it,... it may be good for a half hour or so then start glitching all over the place, all content, even OTA. i was confusing this with judder, it's not judder.. it's stutter or mr roboto hiccups.. its a processing issue (aside from the usual judder you may get from judder producing scenes) best to just leave it off for now until they work it out. With it off, I see none of those hiccups, maybe once in a rare moment will i see judder during a long pan, but its very slight and smooth, hardly noticeable unless you are looking for it -nothing like the trumotion hiccup which you will definitely notice and think the characters are on crack or meth with all the twitching..
The only fear I have right now is what if the quad processor just isn't enough to process trumotion on OLED panels.. will they abandon us or will they really put the effort in to tweak the firmware? I assume it is the same quad in their lower end LEDs where Trumotion doesn't glitch? They sold so many sets and having trouble keeping up with stock... there will be tons of complaints if it doesn't get fixed in a timely manner.. If you want to be top dog ..you are going to have to put in the effort here to be top dog..if they abandon, then that will be the end of LG's current reign for sure..I guarantee it.
Now with all that said...I wonder - What would happen if you turned TruMotion on high and watched a soap opera? Would the soap opera look like crap or the tv have some type of internal dilemma? LOL.
