Settings are all personal preference, but generally for 3D OLED Light should be higher than for 2D and Super Resolution is not recommended for HD sources. Super Resolution works great on standard definition, but on HD and above sources it over sharpens and can bring in artifacts.

I haven't noticed super resolution do anything with any source any time I've tested it.

Is the B6P able to decode DD+ for its internal speakers ??
When I send DD+ from my Roku Ultra the LG shows it is receiving DD+, but I get no sound from the internal speakers.
If sent a DD+ signal the B6P will send the signal to my receiver through the 'optical out' as DD 5.1 (not DD+), which is not surprising. It does surprise me that the B6P will not decode DD+ for its internal speakers.
Am I missing something in settings??

True for 2D...highest I found was sharpness 26 without artifactings appearing. But not so with 3D. It looks great with max sharpness and super resolution on high. I also found 4K can also handle sharpness max...and/but super resolution on low. Give it a try...works great! I use olight 35 for standard bluray movies. 45 for 3D.

Really hope this turns out to be true. LG's response sounded just vague enough that I wouldn't be surprised if the fixes never show up (especially the game mode one).

I tried your settings out last night. I think color temp needs adjusting for me. When switching from 3d to 2d and checking what my 2d settings were getting me, the 3d picture felt more "cool" than neutral. While the image presented a great deal of detail, I cant help but think of what repercussions blasting the sharpness up that high would have. It was clearly adding edge enhancement that wasnt there in the 2d version. When I ran it through the sharpness test on the S&M disc, the over sharpness indicator was screaming that it was too high. This was on Passengers 3d btw.

Add a little color if you wish. I have had it that way for a long time. Are you thinking it might increase the possibility of burn in? To me it just looks like a higher resolution, more detailed...closer to what I imagine 4K 3D would look like. Try an animated disc when you get a chance, those look great as well.

I have reached out to John Archer through Twitter as of yesterday, but I also reached out to him 7 months ago when we first discovered the elevated black levels. My fear is that the problem with the 05.30.03 firmware is being confused for the separate Dolby Vision black level issue. I once again let him know that it’s still a problem for B6 owners and we have no details on when it may get fixed.

I encourage everyone with a B6 to contact him and let him know we still have black level problems with the 05.30.03 firmware.

I hope that if they "fix" game mode it's more of an option for "HDR Game Bright" and not getting rid of the darker mode entirely, as there's a lot of benefit to be gained by that mode. Dynamic Contrast isn't what people want with that, either.

As for the raised blacks on B6, the author here seems to describe it as fluctuating black levels, much like DV over HDMI, but afaik there are no fluctuations, just a constant raised blacks, so perhaps that may be what has confused LG about that.

It is the reason why i've stayed with 04.30.95 on my C6. I've heard some positives about the darker HDR game mode, but i dont want to have to use dynamic contrast to brighten the image either.

In most cases games have good enough brightness controls to adapt to any lighting conditions, meaning you won't need to use dynamic contrast even in a brightly lit room, but I think the benefits far outweigh any potential negatives, especially since I always watch HDR in a dark room.

I would also hate for them to ditch the current HDR Game mode. However, I would love for them to add the Bright HDR Game (as you suggested earlier) for games like PUBG that have no calibration controls.

I have a 65" C6 Manufactured May 2017.

Dolby Vision I have noticed looks like its perfectly (or close to) calibrated in Colour/ Greyscale/ and Shadow detail. Eg skin tones in low apl scenes are spot on. Fire is perfect colour etc.

SDR and HDR settings on default are OK but I can tell (after being used to calibrated screens) that they are not perfect.

I assume LG do a factory panel calibration on Dolby Vision, but not for SDR and HDR .. anyone else experience similar or have a different experience?

I dont have an I1 pro anymore and will get a calibration once the set hits 2000hours but If the default SDR/HDR colours/greyscale was as good as DV was from factory I wouldnt bother.

Dolby Vision isn't perfect. It has the same inaccuracies of grayscale as the other HDR modes. The reason it looks better is it has better tonemapping, which has been directly optimized by Dolby based on the screen's strengths and weaknesses to result in a picture that preserves as much of the original mastered look as possible (by comparing display capabilities between your tv and the mastering display), sacrificing as little as possible. Comparing across multiple screens, Dolby Vision is going to look much more consistent between screens than HDR10 is, because each screen handles the tonemapping differently, and most HDR10 tonemapping techniques do not make the best use of the display's capabilities. Dynamic metadata also helps ensure the display is tuned to its best potential based on each scene's content, which isn't possible on static HDR10 either.

Honestly, I don't think they are doing anything other than waiting for people to give up on it. 7 months? I cannot imagine it takes that long to fix something that wasn't an issue in previous firmwares.

I interpreted that article as suggesting that any 'fix' would be along those lines, since the darker game mode was apparently intentional. I hope that's what they do. No reason to take away the dark mode if some people like it. I don't like it at all, though, so hopefully something gets worked out.

I know this isn't the most technical way to show a difference but I prefer the darker HDR Game mode. I don't like LG's suggestion to use dynamic can contrast on high to brighten it. Ithink it does give better detail & a little more realistic look.

In the pics below the picture with the right handed batter (batter on the left side of pic) has dynamic contrast on high

The pic with the left handed batter ( batter on right side of pic) has dynamic contrast off. I think this one has more detail and slightly better realism.

Using LG C6

Here's a comparison I made between HDR Standard and HDR Game using a bright scene from Batman v Superman, and adjusting the exposures so the shadows were the same brightness, so it paints a better picture of what highlight detail is revealed and the difference in pop you get when viewing in a dark room where your eyes can adjust to the darker image:

This is a gif with the exposure locked between the two, showing the difference in brightness:

is there anything we can do to enlarge the super small text in game window boxes on the LG b6? Its hard to read in game text in games like forza 7 and god of war.

Can't wait to check it out. I'm still catching up with a few games I got behind on while playing AC Origins, but should be done with those soon I hope.

They are waiting on something that's for sure......giving up as you noted is part of that.

2016 C6 LG OLED - Adv. Settings under HDR are greyed out.

No matter what I fiddle with, the advanced options under the HDR Game mode are greyed out and unselectable. I looked around on the forum and found somebody else with the same issue but his solution doesn't help, as i do not have an xfinity box.

Any idea of what needs to be done in order to change these settings? Seems the last update locked me out.

Me too, definetely getting gow, but still playing far cry 5. Makes me wonder, would getting xbox 1 x be worth it for higher resolution games and dolby atmos...but watching YouTube video comparisons between pro and x1x i don't see big difference. You really have to look for it to see. Origins i played 110 hours lol, including all dlcs. Was awesome game.
