I also dont want to pay $4k for the TV, because I may also move out
You can not imagine how many times I moved out in my life haha I am always on the road (because I like it, not because I have to)
So I 100% prefer buying that gorgeous LG C6 now, then another TV in few years... I know I am winning in this

Hmmm.... as you may have read, the remaining 2016 models have been selling very quickly. If you wait two months you may not be able to find one for sale. As to your concern, these sets are pretty substantial. Yes and No. Please read on.

Obviously the panel itself, being so thin, is fragile from a bending and/or impact standpoint. If you don't unpack it and leave it in its original box it will be fine regardless of any bumps in the road. However "if" you want to take it out of the box to inspect it and watch it for the two months before you move just remember how it came out of the box. Save the box and "all" the original packing material. Make note of how all the Styrofoam inserts were placed in the box around the TV. Some of the Styrofoam inserts have a left and a right sides and will only go back in the box one way. The packing inserts were specifically designed to protect the TV and panel against bangs and bumps during shipment. TIP: Use your cell phone to take pictures of the TV as you open the box and unpack it so you repack it just like it came from the factory.

HOWEVER... "if" you buy it now, unpack it, and throw the box and packing material away, and then attempt to move it... then I would say "Yes" the TV is pretty fragile. You don't want to put any pressure on the front of the panel when lifting it. The panel frames are very thin and they bend easily. There is not much to grab or hold on to when moving these around so care must be taken. Could it be moved without the original box? Sure. But putting one of these high dollar sets in the back of a truck wrapped in a blanket, surround by a bunch of other furniture would make me a nervous wreck. If you are the person moving it and you take special care handling it, you should be okay. But if you are paying someone else to move your stuff or you or letting your buddies help, be aware that not everyone knows the right way to handle or move big screen TV's.

Thanks for the info, yeah you are right, I cant take the risk of missing this amazing TV haha
Ok I will leave everything as it is in the box

@Elton Noway has already provided great commentary -- I agree. Two more things. There are several YouTube videos about unpacking -- but as far as I know, only one actually shows the recommended LG procedure (including open the box, lay the tv over and support it with two of the styrofoam inserts). I would agree that the biggest danger you face is having someone to doesn't know how to handle the tv -- don't grab or pull on that thin upper part of the panel. Support at the bottom and don't wrap your hands around the upper panel at all.

My installers were unorthodox, but they did two things that I much appreciated. No grabbing that upper panel AND set the stand up first in proper position and immediately put the tv into the stand and bolt it. Now you have a stable upright tv and can better take care of the handling details.

Good luck. Note that in the US, some of these 2017 LG OLEDs are going UP in price. Supply and demand!

The tv designer and packing designer weren't on the same page. The sticker with unpacking instructions wasn't obvious to me until I had already removed the tv from the styrofoam. Therefore I did t know I was supposed to lay it flat. I lifted it straight out of the box and u MUST grab the screen to do that. There should be little finger slots on the rear plastic box for moving the tv around while u wall mount it.
That Samsung i had before this had the instructions right on the to of the box where it was difficult to miss.

You're certainly right about that! All of it!

I mentioned my installers (Amazon white glove delivery -- standard free) were "unorthodox". After taking the top off the box and putting the stand in position right behind the box, they both reached down inside and grabbed "something", pulled it straight up out and then down onto the stand. Screwed in the bolts and we were gravy! What they grabbed to lift the tv is a bit of a mystery to me. On the left is a little ledge for the connectors to lift with, but on the right I could see nothing except the cord way down low. But they barely touched the top of the panel and mine remains perfectly flat still.

The really neat part of the whole thing was how they just lifted the tv straight up and right back down on that stand! By the time I had a chance to go around and look, they already had the bolts in. Entire setup time to plug in? About 2 minutes! From there they just had to lift the tv onto my cabinet base. I stopped them just long enough to plug in the HDMI cable from my AVR. So by the time they packed the shipping material, I had Directv up and was verifying that I got one of the good ones!

I watched 'The Martian' on 4K/HDR last night.

My God. Oh, my God. That film, IMO, represents the best usage of HDR10 as far as content that is currently available at the moment. The amount of detail, and depth, that you could see in the spacesuits and rovers, was absolutely insane to experience.

Great film, by the way. Probably features the best production design of any sci-fi film since District 9--and is arguably the most visually impressive film from Ridley Scott since Alien and Blade Runner.

Also, do people here use blu-ray.com as a reference for what you're looking for in video quality? I'm a bit skeptical of them as of late, as they rewarded the Planet Earth II 4K BD a perfect 5/5 for its picture quality, but quite a few episodes still feature a lot of 'noise' and visual artifacts. I'm assuming this is just inconsistent mastering of HDR10 for this content, but it's still noticeable enough to drop the quality of that content down to a 3.5/5, possibly 4/5 at best.

EDIT: Oh, and one more thing, and again, it's in regard to motion: the video processor on the OPPO 203 is an absolute STUNNER. I already didn't have any experiences with 'judder' or motion issues others have reported, but I did notice the motion altogether is WAY smoother when playing BDs on the OPPO compared to the XB1s.
Bleeding Edge and john fusco like this.

Is there anyway to tell the set to turn off if it doesn't get a signal after a certain period of time? My old LCD had this feature, but all I can find on the C6 is the ability to shut down at a certain time. I'm using it hooked to a PC which has sleep turned on, but then the TV moves to a slide show.

^ My C6 shuts off after several minutes of non use and I don't have any energy saving mode or sleep timers engaged. I don't like it but it may be some sort of protection system built in.

Just ran across that in the "manual" which says it will shut off after 15 minutes with no signal. What I didn't see is if there was any way to change that time, I'd prefer 5 minutes, though of course with an all black screen it shouldn't be drawing huge amounts of power.

Interesting... with my B6 the instructions for unpacking were printed in color right on the top edge of the box, (i.e., sliding off the outside cardboard sleeve, inserting the long Styrofoam pieces into the box to give it internal support and then laying the TV face down on the box.) Once it was face down on the box I attached the stand. That's when things got tricky. "After" unpacking and laying it down. I found the envelope with the unboxing instructions that were packed "inside" the box with the TV. They warned the installer about grasping the screen, i.e., do not wrap your fingers around the screen, do do grasp the screen to lift it etc. The instructions said to use the left and right side Styrofoam edge pieces to lift it. It's not impossible but it we found it difficult. My wife and I were afraid the TV would slip and fall if we didn't maintain constant pressure towards each other. We ended up running a strap all the way around the TV and Styrofoam pieces which held them in place, then we rotated up it into a standing position. Whew!

Later on... I found this Youtube video of a guy doing the unbox and setup "by himself". Wish I would have seen it first. If interested on how its done... you really only need to watch the first 4 minutes.

Yeah I remember when I got my B6 in February. I still can't get over how they wanted us to lay the tv flat on its screen? Out of all of TV's I've ever owned (LCD & Plasma). I've never laid a tv on its face. But thankfully I followed the instructions and verything turned out fine.

Is it true that the B6 OLED can accept and display a 75 Hz 1080p signal?

As a new owner of the OLED65B6P I really appreciate the help I have gotten from this forum. But I will apologize ahead of time because I'm sure this issue I'm about to describe has been discussed before but I was unable to find anything in the 700+ page thread.

So Yesterday I turned on my tv and got a weird green/pink tented picture. I immediately turned the tv off and back on and the picture was back to normal. I then when to the picture test in the setting menu and failed



So I reset the initial setting and re-ran the test and all was well. After playing a round for a bit I realized that when I enabled ULTRA HD DEEP COLOR that was the source of the failed test and mostly the cause of the weird green/pink tented screen issue I described earlier.

Based on my experience with the previous hdr tv I've owned I thought I could leave this deep color setting on even when I'm watching normal non hdr content with out any issue. I run everything through an av receiver then out to my tv into hdmi port 4. Am I wrong for thinking this? I imagine it would be a bit annoying to have to alway engage disengage this setting based on the content you wanted to watch. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Secondly :

I would like to have my tv calibrated but I'm of the understanding you should have approx 200 hour of display time before the proper calibration can be done. Is 200 hrs the proper breakin time? And how in the world do I find out how much time is on my display? I assumed some kind of service menu. Could some explain how I can access my tvs service menu if that's is the case?

OLED 65B6P Unboxing & Setup

Do I really have to cut the package bellow?
Or is it another way to open it without using a knife in case my Tv is defective and I want to return it
I was planning on laying the Tv on my bed then opening the box and slowly pulling the Tv, or I can lay the Tv flat on my bed, then opening the box bellow then putting it back on the floor instead of cutting it

ultra deep color should only be enabled for HDR sources. I've not run into your problem, but that's likely what's causing the issue.

That is correct, some will be gone in the next 2 weeks, good prices are pretty much over except for the E6P and G6P, might as well start researching 2017 models if the purchase date will be 2 months, the 7P'S.

Hmmm.... I imagine you could take the TV out of the box with it laying flat but keep in mind it was designed and packed to be unboxed standing up. If you will be unboxing and setting it up by yourself I think the way the guy did it in the video I provided in my earlier post is probably the easiest.

As far as "cutting" the box... if yours is packed like mine was (i.e., the same way it was packed in the above video), with the two plastic packing straps wrapped vertically around the box, you don't need to cut the box. I know because I didn't cut my box. With the TV standing vertically as recommended by LG, once you cut the two packing straps, the top of the box can be slid up and off the TV as shown in the video. Truth be told, when it comes to repacking, cutting the two straps presents more of a problem than cutting the top of the box. This is because those two little straps hold the the TV and "all its contents" together as a single unit. If you watch the video and pause it around 1:10 you will see when the outer box is slid up and off, the TV and all the contents are sitting "in" a small cardboard tray at the bottom. So... "all" the weight of everything in the box is sitting in that little cardboard tray. After repacking, if you try to pick it up without the straps... the outer box will just slide off. Rather than cutting the straps, I first tried pulling on the straps to see if I could work them off the ends of the box but they were to tight... so I had to cut them..

Net: Even if you don't cut the top flap, you will need to figure out a way to band or strap the entire assembly back together. My suggestion would be to look for a "Strapping Kit"... something like >this< or >this<

Anyone know what color gamut does? Shouldn't it always be set to WIDE? I can't tell a difference between any of the settings.

You should just leave it in Normal it is really a mislabeled "auto" setting . it will change as required based on the source.

I think that @Elton Norway; has provided excellent advice -- I would follow what he says -- including the strapping. DON'T cut the box!

As for laying it on the bed, LG says lay it on the floor -- I expect that is for stability and because it has a lot less distance to fall when on the floor. (Having tried to use my sofa with another tv which then slid to the floor, I would follow LGs recommendations.)

The general recommendation for color gamut is normal to avoid a "cartoony" look.

If you are talking about how he lifted the most part of the box up off the television then no. That's how the box is designed. He did not cut the bottom of the box in order to lift it off the TV. It is already separated like that from the factory. You do not have to cut it. The ties he cut off is what holds it together.
