I’ve accepted this TV as it is and for the most part still love the picture!!!
It is hard to believe these C6's are coming up on 4 years. Since 2012 I've had a few TVs one of which I lost in a flooded basement and the other which I still love is a 2014 LG LED tv that found its way upstairs as the C6 is in the home theater room. Anyway I knew when I purchased the C6 it could likely be a panel I'd use for a bit longer mainly because it had enough current features plus 3D.

Just had the same problem this morning. Not sure anybody replied directly to you, but there was a suggestion to toggle Deep Color for non-used HDMI port. I’m not sure it was a suggestion in response to you either, but I tried that and it seemed to work for me so far. Toggling the power by itself did not fix it.

I'm on V4 after rolling back about 4 months ago, I still sometimes think I should update, the glow kind of irritated me at times but it wasn't that much of a big deal for me personally.
I do think the new firmwares offer minor picture improvements in other areas.

Did you update or stay on V4?, If I updated I would get the latest from my region, which is 5.30.65.

I've recently noticed my TV popping up with a notification saying something like "wired network connected" when I'm just sitting there watching TV or a Blu-ray (not using the internet connected apps)

It's as if someone was unplugging a replugging the cable, but that's definitely not happening. I don't know if it's my TV, my cable, or my router, but I thought I'd ask here to see if anybody else experienced that with a wired connection. I've never noticed it while watching something on the Netflix or Amazon apps though. I could switch to wifi but wired is faster and more consistent.

Hi,

The wired connection on this tv is slower than the WiFi, believe it or not. It’s not a gigabit connection, therefore only on WiFi you can gain higher speeds. The WiFi chip in the tv has WiFi AC. That means it can receive high speeds. 4K content is playing directly in that format without starting to lower resolutions first. If you have a good WiFi connection and a modem/router after 2010, than you’re good to go. To make use of WiFi AC you will have to log into your modem to verify if WiFi AC is enabled.

I remember that this was one of the reasons I bought it.

You should try it, I’ve never had any dropouts whatsoever.

Interesting, I wouldn't have expected that. However I have in the past had this TV on wifi and it would randomly say it wasn't connected at all until I manually clicked it again. I do have a better wifi now than I did then though so I'll check it out I guess.

Ethernet


Wifi


It's a 200mbps connection and I get close to that on my PC ethernet. Router is about 6ft away. I do however have the 2.4GHz and 5GHz on the same SSID and I've seen that annoyingly some devices will prefer the 2.4 even ridiculously close to the router so that may be what's up.

If you are using wifi 5Ghz, make sure you use a channel under 100, the TV's wifi has issues with channels over 100 on WiFi.

I haven't had any issues with WiFi since keeping the channel under 100.

I'd like to upgrade eventually but I feel like if it's not broke don't need to fix it. LOL! Plus the wife wouldn't approve. LOL! Still running the 4.31.20 firmware as I'm afraid to lose my inky blacks with the updates.

Yeah I’d stay on that FW if I were you. I’m hoping to get another set when the 2020 models release so I can use the B6 for the bedroom.

Can't seem to find the answer anywhere. Where is the IR receiver on the B6?

Edit: Nevermind, I found it. It's to the left of the LG logo. Also realized there is a removable clear protective plastic over the logo I never noticed! XD

I had been on V4 firmware for a while after downgrading from V5, I was eager to try the latest 5.30.65, so installed it.

I'm actually quite happy on the latest firmware, it's likely not the case and just a placebo effect but the picture looks better to me, especially in Dolby Vision, just looks a little cleaner/sharper looking. Saying that I believe LG did make improvements to the picture in some areas over the course of the V5 firmwares.

Also I think HDR game mode is brighter.

As for the black glow, I haven't tested for it, what I have watched so far, blacks look inky black, it was only noticeable on a complete black screen and in a pitch black room anyway.

I'm happy on this firmware and will stick with it.

I'm thinking 2020/21 as well, depends if I win the lotto as I want to get a new phone next year, plus we will have more news on the release of the next gen games consoles, as I like playing games on my oled, I would possibly buy a new TV around the same time as the release of these.

I also like to keep a TV for a good 5 years or so, that way I appreciate any new features and improvements in picture a lot more.

Honestly it doesn't seem like hardware wise the OLEDs are improving much. If you put up a fully white screen on the newest OLEDs, you're going to get about the same levels of brightness as you'll get with these. It just seems like they're making better use of ABL to get better peaks in darker scenes.

Software wise of course is a different story though.

Replace my C6 when...

An OLED set comes with 3D again. It's that simple.

I second that one. I really didn't need the Panel at the time I purchased it as my 2014 Non HDR 4K 3D TV was (and still is) was functioning just fine but I'm so happy I pulled the trigger. Since going OLED the only issue I have is its ruined going to the movies for me because I'm finding theater Digital projection to appear washed out without inky blacks. Oh well.

Unfortunately, 3d is likely never coming back since the polarizing filters affect the overall brightness of the display and higher peak nits (or same peak nits with better burn in resistance) would sell more TVs than 3d. I would love it if the 2020 LGs came with 3d and I would likely sell off my C6 to get one so I could have the better motion processing and eARC, but it's just realistically not going to happen.

I'm not so sure. 2020 is out but perhaps further down the line. There are a lot of things true videophiles are concerned about and things that the more casual viewer are concerned about. Remember, 3D was pretty poor until 4K sets came out and, of course, the OLED sets took visuals to the next level.

More brightness with blooming colors are good for alot of folks. Actually, most folks. Anyone with the C6 knows you have to sit much further away to get great 3D than you would for 4K content. However, if you sit further back you're essentially getting a 1080P 3D image that is as good as in theaters. (I have my C6 on a platform with wheels to move the TV back about 30" and that makes a huge difference).

The reason I think 3D can take another shot and be more successful is simply because it can be really, really good. More people need to see how good it can be. I am also pessimistic on this happening. Even if it's better received that still may not be enough to keep it. However, after watching "The Hobbit" last night, great depth movie, I almost cried knowing that when this C6 craps out, no more 3D for me.

My goal: a 77" OLED 3D TV. I'm a simple man with simple needs.

As we get further and further out the chance lessens for the big manufacturers to bring 3d back because media is going to dry up.

There have only been 11 3d blu-ray releases in the US in 2019 so far (3 of them being very old catalog titles from the 50s.) The supply of new releases on disc is pretty much bottoming out. It's only going to be a matter of time before the older 3d releases go out of print. Manufacturers aren't going to include a hardware feature on their TVs for a format that isn't being sold anymore when it causes design compromises in areas they are trying to improve.

The best we can probably hope for is for someone to come up with hardware to adapt VR headsets to receive 3d video from blu-ray players.

That can't be the case. The C6 is able to get to the same brightness as every current OLED when you fill the screen with all white. This to me suggests the panels are roughly the same in capability as ours, just with a better control over ABL to producer higher peaks on darker scenes. The polarization filter doesn't seem to have affected that at all.

Hi, does anyone know if the firmware downgrade is still possible? Accidentally updated and need to go back to version 04.30.95. What is the best guide to use that has the clearest instructions? Any help would be appreciated, thanks.

Same situation is here. I couldn't manage downgrade yesterday. My TV told as an error message software version was earlier than the TV software meaning it refused my initiation for downgrading the firmware.

Hello,

I have a C6V. Unfortunately, downgrade doesn't seem to be possible anymore to check "best" HDR10 settings of the past using an older firmware.
Currently, I have one of the latest available firmware installed on my set (05.30.60).

What settings are considered here to be the "best" for HDR10 and SDR using that firmware?
What is the recommended calibration method for my set?

Any help would be appreciated.
Thank you very much for the help in advance.

As far as I know none of the firmwares have affected what the best settings are.

For HDR10 and DV, I always recommend just sticking with the default settings for the basic stuff, and then just turn off all the artificial enhancements like dynamic contrast, trumotion, noise reduction, etc.

As the poster above said, stick with defaults, you really don't need to adjust anything in the HDR modes, as said just turn of all the processing stuff like true motion, dynamic contrast...


2 weeks on 5.30.65 and I'm yet to notice any black glow on my B6, not tested for it though, so it may be there but in general viewing I have not seen it, I watch in various room conditions, sometimes ambient lighting is on, other times I watch in a dark room, watched SD and HDR content and all looks great.
