And I am pretty sure I already mentioned both of those steps you just mentioned to rockycandy, but then was questioned immediately about it. Rocky's asked a couple times now about calibrating 3D, but he kept insisting that the glasses are like looking through clear glass and only affected the image (brightness) very slightly. He questioned my, along with others, settings and observances. My experience and many others is that the glasses affecting the image is not "slight" at all; several also have posted in conjunction to my observances, as well.

Alas, you cannot change how people perceive things, so I digress.

Hi, Wide Gamut option is only helpful when you use the LG in post production for SDR @ ISF mode to calibrate for DCI-P3 or use eeColor for 3D LUT with 65-Point Cube (or other processors with smaller cube size) bypassing LG's poor CMS controls.

Wide Option @ SDR @ ISF mode, has a coverage closer (or larger) to DCI-P3.

In HDR mode, the Normal vs. Wide, both will provide the same (native primaries) gamut coverage, the largest the TV can display, but the problem is that in Wide it's boosting the lower saturation levels (make them more saturated), so for HDR the Normal is the correct settings.

In SDR mode, Normal will provide a slight oversaturated REC.709 coverage while Wide will provide the largest possible (native) so it will oversaturate a lot the colors if you watching HD/Full HD content (blu-ray/sat/cable etc..) which use REC.709. In SDR mode the Normal is the correct setting also.

See here for measurements between Normal-Wide in SDR: https://www.avsforum.com/forum/40-ole...l#post49513505

For 3D do you you think we should turn off all the extra processing? I wonder if things like trumotion, super resolution, and dynamic contrast should be enabled or not on 3D. Anyone have defaults they like, just curious in the ball park as I expect my 2D settings in 3D for the basics like OLED, Contrast and Brightness to possibly be higher. I will try that 2D to 3D conversion to calibrate for sure to compare. Currently my 2D settings atleast are, Expert ISF Dark, OLED 55, Contrast 85, brightness 52, Gamma 2.2, Color 47, warm 2. I'm also trying the Dynamic contrast at low for now to see how I like it, from what has been suggested here.

Tint in Game Mode

I was trying to dial in the white balance in game mode on my 55" B6, but it appears that the tint slider doesn't have any effect. Is this normal in game mode?

You only mentioned Oled Light raised to 100. But what about brightness and contrast? Can we use the same test patterns with 3D engaged?

The prior issue was with the builtin app.

Does anyone else have banding or smooth skies when watching these shows?

I keep everything off except for trumotion for 3d. Not really a drastic difference in base settings except for oled light at 100

You keep asking the same question in multiple threads, multiple times. Why not try it and see for yourself? For myself, I used the same test disc. Again, you can try it yourself and see; if you don't like it, hit the "reset" button.

I know I did mention that I lowered brightness down a couple of clicks to bring it back in line with the 2D counterpart. I also remember mentioning that Bob Pariseau said the same thing.

As for Contrast, put the glasses on, go to the peak white levels test slide and then set it the same way you would for 2D -- just see where the white is clipping.

Again, the best thing to do is just try it yourself and see.

Tint control is not used for white balance, it impacts the hue of secondary colors . Cyan , Magneta and yellow. I don't recommend using white balance controls without a meter but if you have to do it use the 2 point settings.

I definitely get the same banding. B6 with Roku Ultra. Very noticeable during the Grand Tour's recent 2-part special. Much better using the built in app on the TV itself. Makes me question the value of the Roku Ultra -- may be headed back to Amazon soon...

If you did mention that we can use the same test patterns for 3D as we do for 2D I must have missed it.
I set Oled Light at 100 but it did not affect brightness and in fact contrast went up to 91 based on Disney WOW.
I also turned down sharpness a notch from 15 to 10.
Watching AntMan 3D right now and it looks impressive.
I applied the adjusted bt.1886 settings with luminance adjustments and it all worked out great

I don't own the Disney Wow disc, so I can't directly compare, but I've read a number of times that the Disney Wow disc contrast is somewhat hit-and-miss.

I know that my contrast setting didn't change much, if at all. I'm not at home to check for sure, but if I it did change, it was only one or two clicks.

My contrast is the same for both SDR and 3d both at 85.

I get contrast at 91 for both 2D or 3D. Not remotely close to 84- 85...But that is Disney WOW for you

I know my 2D SDR contrast is at 85, as well. I'd have to double check on the 3D portion, it may be at 85 as well... but again, I'm not at home to check

You really need to let the contrast thing go it been explained to you multiple times in multiple ways lol I tend trust my calibrator but hey that's just me. I really don't understand the obsession with Disney Wow? other discs out there

Ah, ok. My eeColor LUT arrived yesterday, and I set it up using the normal gamut as I assumed the wide or extended would just result in the colours covered by rec.709 just getting crammed into a smaller number space and lose accuracy (e.g. end up using something like 0-0.900 rather than 0-1.000 for each point in the cube). So there would actually be a benefit in re-running the eeColor calibration in wide for normal TV, blu ray and DVD playback?

Warm 1 makes gives everything a 'Hospital' vibe. Everything looks cold and sickly

Hi, no need to use Wide mode, the normal is already slight oversaturated for REC.709 so you will have 100% coverage at the end. But results are related to the software solution you will use.

I used LightSpace with normal gamut with eeColor and got these results: https://www.avsforum.com/forum/40-ole...l#post49417777

I used LightSpace for 3D LUT generation and CalMAN only for verification, not because LightSpace don't have verification, but I wanted to crosscheck the final results with other software solution

Well ... the new LG OLED 2017 models will allow Atmos/HD Audio to be passed via ARC ...


I wonder if the 2016 models will get this via upgrade/update?!

Atmos, yes. But when you say HD Audio, are you referring to TrueHD and DTS-HD? If so, what's your source?

At the moment, as I'm dipping my toe into this whole new world, I'm using DisplayCal for setting up the LUT. I did a 1,500 point test run yesterday and generated BT1886, Gamma 2.1, 2.2, 2.3 and 2.4 settings. So far I've not tested the results with a meter, I decided to spend the night actually watching DVDs, blu rays, TV and AppleTV to see if there visibly was a difference and what I liked. To my eyes, the BT1886 was the standout winner.

I'll probably get some calibration time either Thursday or Friday nights (wife out of town). I want to try a few things to see why warm 2 measured better than warm 1 but warm 2 looked too reddish.
I got home and checked all my color channels and output from oppo-203 and warm 1 seems to produce much more accurate skin tones without having to cut color down below what my Spears and Munsil disc says is optimum at 50. I wish I had a warm 1.5! I guess I'll need a grey scale cal for that. Let me know if you come up with anything I should try. But right now this looks much better than it did. I'll do another pass with spears and munsil to make sure that changing the temperature didn't alter my contrast and brightness settings any. I suspect maybe a notch down in brightness and a bump up in contrast from my current 53 and 82, respectively

So I saw that LG's new Ultra HD 4k player will support Dolby Vision which is awesome. So im assuming we wont have any issues with picture once we have the hard discs. I wanted to ask with the streamed Dolby Vision content out there right now is it only on VUDU that people have experienced issues with the flickering black levels and flashes? I haven't watch any other Dolby Vision content on Amazon or Netflix so I just wanted to ask. I also get a stuck pink pixel on full screen movies in Dolby Vision on Vudu. I know its a glitch with the content since its only there when I play a movie through Vudu that's in 1:85:1 ratio. Thanks guys

I suppose both?


You think there will be an upgrade for 2016 models to allow Atmos to be passed over ARC?

When you have a display with 0 nits black, (LG OLED), BT.1886 or 2.4 are exact the same, no need to generate both of them, just generate one of them; since it's identical
