Horizon Zero Dawn allows this as well as Forza Horizon 3 which gives me a bit of relief when playing for long hours.

Ha, everyone in my clan has probably heard me snoring at some point by now.

And yeah, games that allow you to customize the HUD elements is great and I hope more developers make that a standard feature. I love that I can have the dynamic HUD in Horizon and have it disappear when not needed.

Dynamic HUD is the way to go for sure. I hope developers really do start making that a standard to include in games. It just makes the gaming experience on OLED/4K/HDR even more breathtaking. Having an OLED makes me look forward to coming home every day to play some games and wind down.

God Bless you guys! By the time I finally get everything finished for the night and sit down to play The Last Guardian I end up passing out. LOL! I guess I should try playing around 8 instead of 11.

Thanks for the tip but I wasn't saying the LG had red push in flesh tones. I was referring to Samsung. The 2015 model Samsung had slightly more than the 2010 model. The LG flesh tones look good.

I have stopped watching CNN for a month and the problem is still there. I hope it is image retention issue and not image burn in as suggested by one member.

I hope it is moderate image retention and I will try to contact LG and see if they can fix it under warranty. The TV is only nine month old and still under warranty.

Hi guys I was fiddling around with my new oled55c6 and couldn't figure out why there was so much black crush of my ps4. Turns out it defaulted to full rgb on auto for whatever reason so I switched it to limited which seems to fixed it. How ever though viewing 1-255
http://www.lagom.nl/lcd-test/black.php

The first 3 black boxes still are the same shade of black while on my samsung ks8500 they are a different shade. Is this normal on the oled to clip near black.

This all viewed full screen through my ps4 pro browser

That's not to say it doesn't have its moments; the red crab march, the skyline shots of NYC, the magma/lava sequence, etc. all look amazing.
That's interesting. So are you saying that Planet Earth 2 on BluRay wouldn't look as good if it were on VuDu in DV? I find that hard to believe. I'm tempted to get Batman vs. Superman (yeah I liked it) through Vudu rather then UHDbluray.

Yes, technically not possible unless the equipment is faulty.

All UHD BLU RAY discs that I have that include digital HD have included the uhd video from Vudu. Aka If you buy the 4k blu ray you get both options. I have BvS on 4k bluray and the copy I now got for free on Vudu has DV. In fact I just watched it and Jason Bourne last night. The UHD discs never came out of their cases. But I am sad that I missed the Atmos and DTS:X tracks respectively by watching on Vudu vs UHD. I'll probably end up getting the 4k LG Player and stop using my xbox one S once it's confirmed it does DV and Dolby Atmos on bluray

Yeah check it out and see. So I've got 44-45 oled light for my isf dark and 60-65 for DV. This gives me more of a Plasma setting look for me which I like.

I could be wrong here, but I think Dolby personally recommends going with 'Dolby Dark' for the most accurate setting, which I believe sets the OLED light at 50.

No, I'm not saying that at all. As good as Dolby Vision has looked on both Netflix and Vudu, they're still streaming services that end up compressing the video quality compared to actual UHD Blu-Ray discs.

However, even through that compression, colors and lighting not only look noticeably better than their HDR10 counterparts, they also look more accurate.

To put it very simply, if these films that have DV on Vudu were released on Blu-Ray discs right now, then they would look even better. Which is pretty insane.

As another user pointed out, one of the shortcomings of streaming DV content on Vudu is in dark scenes you can notice a lot of compression artifacts, the image doesn't get as bright as it would on a disc due to the compression, and the blacks flicker.

True.

But planet Earth II still isn't the revelation people make it out to be. Close-up shots and colors pop, but there are still noise and artifacts in abundance. Whether or not that has to due with the transfer or the equipment used to film is beyond me, but I wouldn't be using that disc as a demo to blow people away.

I'd still go to 'The Martian', 'Pacific Rim', and 'The Revenant' for physical UHD/HDR discs.

'Pacific Rim' is an especially good one for showing off HDR in darker scenes. On the standard Blu-Ray on standard 1080p displays, which the film itself still looks great on standard Blu-Ray, there's still noticeabley more detail in the robots and monsters during the Hong Kong sequence on the UHD Blu-Ray due to the HDR. That's a really good demo reel for selling people on HDR.

Another surprisingly good title for showing off clarity and action in darker environments is 'Patriots Day'. The amount of detail you can make out during the neighborhood shootout is pretty remarkable.

I'm not sure. My Jason bourne, BvS, man of Steel, watchmen, fantastic beasts, xmen 4,5,6 (technically 1,2,3), watchmen all redeemed for 4k uhd. I'm sure it's studio publisher specific. I don't think I've had one only do HDX yet.

Ah yes I see that my Sing redeem now has UHD available to stream.

Trolls not available yet in UHD.

But my XMen Apocalypse 4k redeem still shows HDX only. Not listed as UHD available in VUDU at all for any of the xmen?

As you guys know the new 2017 LG C7 is almost the same as the B6, with some tiny improvements here and there. Specifically, out-of-the-box is the low input lag in all resolutions, which was a bug in B6 and was only addressed right now in a firmware update.
Another improvement in C7 is the support of 1080p @ 120Hz - is there something preventing LG to update their B6 model firmware for supporting 1080p @ 120Hz or is it a technical limitation?

In theory, that's a cool feature. But I'm not sure I personally would ever wanna use it over 4K/60. If you're gaming, it's a night and day difference between the PQ of 1080p and 4K.

Yeah.

When I had my Sony 4k TV, I had that function (1080p at 120hz).

I tried it 1 time for 10 minutes and returned to 4k gaming immediately.

4k at 120 hz is what we really need.

Oh gosh, yes. Cannot wait for 4k/120. Even with my 1080 Ti, newer games are hard to get past 60 at Ultra settings. But I'd love to play older games like BioShock Remastered at 4K/120.

Another surprisingly good title for showing off clarity and action in darker environments is 'Patriots Day'. The amount of detail you can make out during the neighborhood shootout is pretty remarkable.
I just watched Patriots Day last night. You're absolutely right! Plus it was a really good movie as well!!

There has been a few previous discussions on this. For some reason it seems LG rolls out firmware updates to the US ahead of other countries. Some non US members have tried to fool the LG site by changing their country to US so they can download the update but then report they get a message that the file is corrupted when they try to install it. A suggested work around was to have a US member download the current update and send it to whoever needed it in an email.

Some members believe this is a really bad idea not knowing what, if any, hardware difference may exist between the same model (e.g. B6) sold in different parts of the world (e.g 50hz vs 60 hz). Earlier this month I had PM exchange with TiSA88 in in reference to applying the US update to his Brazilian set but I don't know if he ever got brave enough to try it. My concern would be bricking your beautiful new TV. If he doesn't see / reply to this thread I imagine you could PM him and see if he had any luck.

I'm interested to see if this worked?! That would be awesome!

I'd still go to 'The Martian', 'Pacific Rim', and 'The Revenant' for physical UHD/HDR discs.
I'll be the first to agree picking the right demo film is a real dilemma. If funds are limited it hard to decide which us the best movie to buy for your demo disc. Where one technical review says 'Planet Earth II' is the bomb... another may fault it. You suggested 'The Martian'. Personally I loved the film but avoided buying for use as a demo disc due to less than positive review by TrustedReviews where they stated... "its 4K transfer is a slight disappointment" and "it’s not the most emphatic demonstration of what UHD BD can do". But they rave about ''The Revenant' saying, "The Revenant is the best all-round demonstration yet of just what Ultra HD Blu-ray is capable of."
