I was able to test. It is a timing issue. Turning off the speeder TV turning on option helped out and got rid of it going to TV speaker mode completely. The Yamaha has its own annoying feature of switching between AV4 and the HDMI input for my Cable box with HDMI CEC turned on but that has nothing to do with the TV.

Getting a new B6 and really want to test out the panel and make sure there is no preexisting issues. Does anyone have a link to a beginners guide of tips and things to check ?

Thanks for all the help.

There were some helpful settings posted on page 151, post 4519 as I recall.

Thanks for those. They will definitely be helpful.
I was talking about a guide to all the things you should check for in your new panel. Clouding, dead pixels, etc..

Looking for those things can make you miserable if you find something untoward. Of course if content shows something, there's little you can do about that. I would just watch a wide variety of content in the first 20 hours, and then if you spot something that you think might be a TV defect, load up the slides via USB from here: https://mega.nz/#!f4Ig2ASC!iu7UrrzLI...uJqDY47lz-xYcs

Bought a 55B6 now Coming next week. Could someone please post the picture slideshow again that can be used for the first 4h to "maybe" get rid of some possible banding and stuff? I intend to do that slideshow in the first 4 hours. Thank you in advance

Sure, there's a service menu, but you either need a service remote or an Android phone with IR and this app to access it.
I'm in Italy but I'm not sure that there actually is a country specific model as for the tuning I was asked to select the country among a long list of other European options.
Also I bought the set online and this often results in grey imports from other European locations, if it applies to this set.

Unfortunately no android phone nor any fancy remote for me, but given that I usually have the TV on for 2 to 4 hours at night when at home I'll just wait for a few months before calibrating!!

Any way to get back on the subject of near dark issues I been watching more movies obviously just to find out how much compression artifacts (big square blocks and patches) are present on most material in my possession.
Last night I watched Blade runner (final cut) in the hope of finally watching it properly due to this anyway fantastic set (C6) but I was quite disappointed not only by the usual blocking but also by how much it made the CGI (this was the later reissued version, as in the original there was no modern CGI but tons of scale models and photographic effects) look fake and out of tune compared with the normal shots, this off course is no TV defect.
Ultimately I reverted to the original director's cut which appeared much more consistent and smoothly integrated, it had more noise (which I don't mind at all) but less blocking in the dark areas.
Anyway the vast majority of the movie which is composed by standard shots was very rewarding with it's dark and contrasted photography.

On this subject since I still do not posses UHD discs, do you think these are less prone to the compression artifacts with the new HEVC codec compared to HD blurays?

So what happens if you use the PC for streaming and you activate deep colour on the tv. But then you just play 8bit files for example is that good or bad or doesnt matter?

I don't put alot of stock in their calibration expertise but the rest of their testing is solid imo

Yeah, I've noticed that for awhile other other TVs too. I'm not an expert calibrator by any means, but their settings are always WILDLY different than I've come up with with my meter and Calman

I mean, they are calibrating for 2.2 in dark mode which an odd choice to begin with so that could explain some of the difference I see. But I see in their two point high white balance the only thing they adjust was blue and they increased the value a whole lot. On my 65C6, blue was crazy high OOTB on 2pt high and had to be lowered quite a bit and Red had to be boosted.

Some of that is probably panel variance but yes I agree in general. They reviwed some FALD tvs with local dimming off last year, that was a real head scratcher.

Are you using it in 10 bit color mode on the PC? My nvidia GTX 960 card claims to support hdmi 2.0 and 10 bit color, but I've never had any way to see if it works.

Does anyone know if the following mount will work with the C6? If not, can someone please suggest a comparable mount that will work? Thanks.

We were also worried about the more extreme values for the color space, but found that in this case it didn't cause any issues. We check for calibration issues with a few different test patterns, including gradients that cover a range of hues.

There is quite a bit of variation between individual units, and even between different places on the screen. We have found that all of our OLEDs have had warmer and cooler patches, and so try to calibrate to an area which is representative of the whole screen. As such, we recommend not to copy our colorspace/white balance values as they vary so much between sets.

Did you check with content though? I ask because I went through the CMS two nights ago with my C6, got some amazing spot on calibrations that looked fine with test patterns, but the minute I started watching content I saw some nasty artifacts. Posterization was pretty rampant in some places if any of the controls were more than 3 notches from 0.

We watched some sports footage on the C6 which can usually make any artifacts obvious. In this case we didn't notice any issues.

I do not think there is a good time to buy consumer electronics, they are always falling in price. Even at clearance time, the new models are right there to temp you to wait!

Smart TV Input Settings? Calibration Help

Hi Everyone,

How do the picture settings via the smart TV functions, things like watching Netflix or Amazon Video right from the TV apps get situated? Can I use a pre-existing picture option, like standard or expert dark? It seems like the smart tv input carries its own picture settings?

I am also having a hard time calibrating this TV. I generally like a nice bright set and for some odd reason, the out of the box, standard setting is really close to what I like, but it appears to have lots of pixelation on certain sports broadcasts. Like for instance, watching the baseball games on fox sports 1 dont look all that great. I've tried lots of calibration settings from various different sources like rtings and even these forums but it jsut doesnt look all that great.

I got my B6 home last night. I was so excited! .set everything up. Was all good to go. And then when I turned it on I noticed something wrong with the screen.

On the bottom right of the panel there is a spot coming out of the panel that is dark. The best way I can describe it is that it looks like someone took a lighter to the pixels. It's so small. But noticeable on any solid color background.

I am so bummed. I'm gonna obviously have to repackage everything, drive back and exchange it. Such a hassle. But other than that the TV seems pretty ballin. Although I did play some forza and it seemed like the gaming lag was noticeable. I'm gonna have to do some more tests tonight.

Basically what happens is after you order from them online, someone from East Coast calls you and tries to get you to upgrade to express shipping which is $189. When some people refused to upgrade they cancel the order. Others have said that it will just sit in processing for 2 or 3 months without shipping and they have to call frequently to see why.

I've seen others say that they will try and tell you that the TV you ordered for that low price is actually a commercial version of the TV with an 8bit panel, made in Korea, and if you want the USA model, like ones sold in Best Buy, it will be X amount more money, and that it will have a 10bit panel, and is made in Mexico.

That last scam I have verified is BS. According to LG, they do not make commercial equivalents of their B, C, E, G lines, and their commercial panels do not share the same model numbers. Most importantly, LG said that they do not make any OLED that isn't a 10bit panel. The manufacturing plant is in Mexico, so that's the only thing they said that was true.

I've also seen 1 or 2 posters say that they did get their TV from East Coast, but that it took a 2 or 3 months to actually get it.

In a nutshell, you may get lucky and have them actually ship you a TV for the price that they actually quoted on the site, but most likely the order won't go through unless you pay more. If you do get lucky and receive the TV, LG will honor warranties on TVs even from them.

Comes down to if you feel lucky, pretty much. I don't think you will get your money stolen, but it will probably just be a waste of time more than anything.

Good luck
