OK,I'm old and so is my C6, built in January 2017. I forgot that I had bought from Best Buy, a bunch of 3D Blu-ray movies, at a blow out price. I had to hide them away from my wife,so I didn't get the usual comment of, you can't afford that.
Last night my wife went shopping with the kids and you guessed it,I ran across those 3D movies,off went the lights, on with the 3D movies,back came those thoughts, of first seeing 3D, on this TV.
Well I guess I'm allowed to post Christmas list on this forum, so a 88 inch 8K, Samsung QD OLED TV, with passive 3D, got that Samsung?

Old fogey here too as well...I’ve often thought that had the C6 been available at current OLED prices around 2010 when the latest 3D tech was first reintroduced then maybe 3D would have had a better shot at gaining traction. I still feel like the biggest issue though was having to wear the glasses...the majority of the masses out there just seem to hate having to wear the glasses!

I agree with you about the glasses,I have a LG LCD with active glasses,my wife hated them,headaches with on,off shutter. We had hope with LG'S passive glasses,just a little late coming out.
I don't know how popular VR glasses are, but if they get popular, passive 3d might be able to come back. Other factors would be cheep large size passive 3D TV'S, you can get an 85 inch FALD LCD for less then 3,000.00,remember 3D 85 inch were over 16,000.00 and edge lit TV'S.
Maybe the Chinese will use 3D passive TV'S to go up against OLED,yes it's would be niche market.

I watched Transformers Dark Knight 3D over the weekend. Best home 3D experience ever. Previous 3D TVs: Panasonic 42ST30 (replaced by C6) and LG 65UH8500 (currently in main TV room).

Do you mean Dark of the Moon or The Last Knight? I thought Last Knight had great 3D but Dark of the Moon not as much.

My experience: Just set up 4K HDR viewing with Acoustic Research 18GB HDMI cables (4 or 6', not sure of actual length) from PS4 to Denon AVR X3300 to LG 55C6. Same brand of cable but not the same as above would not provide 4K signal from PS4 to LG 65UH8500 or to Denon AVR X4300. IMHO, YMWV.

Hi all, I have a 55LGC6 that has just developed a thin, red, vertical line to the far right of the screen. I bought this over a year ago on ebay and it has been working flawlessly until now. I have tried all inputs and it is still there. Wondering if there’s anything I can do about this? And if I can’t, is it something that will get rapidly worse? Thanks.

I've had this with my B6 usually a green or pink tint. A tv reboot or app reboot should clear up the problem. Might be a HDMI handshake problem.

There probably aren't a lot of major differences. Slightly brighter peak HDR, but the ABL effect is the same, so a 100% white screen has the same brightness. Tonemapping is a bit better, and can account for changes in the scene better even with static metadata with the right settings. EARC support, and 60Hz Dolby Vision support. And then it lacks 3D of course.

Ultimately, it's not a major upgrade unless you are desperate for one of those new features, and in my case the lack of 3D makes it a major downgrade. Callme when there are 2000nit OLEDs with minimal ABL, or something equivalent.

Dolby Vision 60hz should have been added by LG. Very sad they didn't add this when other tv manufacturers were adding it to their 2016 tv sets too last year like Sony did.

You can change the White Balance of DV in Service Menu. In nutshell: Enter SM (EZ-ADJUST)-> choose White Balance -> choose color temperature COOL or MEDIUM and calibrate it using DV patterns -> exit SM and when watching DV content choose the same color temperature you calibrated. If you are not familiar with calibrating you have some learning to do

The chip in LG sets is hardware based as software based Dolby Vision did not exist until Sony asked for it.. please stop blaming LG for Dolby's mistakes. These sets were the first DV over HDMI and use Gen1 chips, if you had any other TV brand, you'd have no DV at all.

I apologize if this is already a known issue that has been discussed but I could only see mention of elevated blacks with Dolby Vision content and not HDR10. Long story short, I had family in and wanted to show off my 65C6 so I threw on Blue Planet 2 played on my Xbox One. Bright scenes looked fantastic as usual but when it got to the deep sea scenes that should have looked spectacular, it was instantly apparent that the blacks were light grey. It looked absolutely terrible. Even on the cut scenes where the screen goes black for a second or two the screen was completely grey. And this wasnt even in a dim or dark room. It was in a moderately lit living room.

Unless it's in the source (which I dont believe it is but it has been awhile since I've watched this UHD) there is something going on with HDR10 from an HDMI source. I can confirm internal apps like Netflix look perfectly fine with Dolby Vision. Perfect blacks. Outstanding contrast. What's going on? Anyone else notice this on UHD's playing HDR10? I need to throw another disc in and see if I'm seeing the same thing. I'll do this and report back soon.

All of the BBC nature docs have thin blacks. I think they've improved from PE2 but they still are bad. They don't even have HDR metadata and different displays and players do different things to compensate, like send default values or send nothing at all!

In my experience with my B6 I feel this varies with content rather than the TV itself. Some content has crappy blacks while other content is just fine.

I played Ad Astra last night and found the opening space scene looked like crap. The blacks were more grey. Put on gravity and the blacks are great. Both on the oppo, both on the B6. Just different content.

It was in the content. I threw on Black Panther and the blacks were solid and inky. No issues. I didnt remember BP 2 having raised blacks in certain spots but I guess so.

DV content is almost non existent most movies will default to DV 24 Hz, on My C6 movies from apple TV and Pioneer LX500 both plays OK no issues.
Even on my Sony TV DV movies plays at 24 Hz. My C6 is in bright room and i never felt it needed more brightness, on other hand on my SONY X900F is dimmer than C6 in DV and HDR mode. Samsung Tvs are much brighter in HDR mode people like them better than SONY implementation.

DV 60hz is required for games and devices like chromecast that don't properly support 24hz.

Although weirdly, without 60hz, the chromecast falls back to a 1080p24 DV mode.

in your case it make sense to have DV 60 Hz, so there are games supporting DV 60 Hz? i have Apple TV and BD player and Directv 4K (few channels only)

Even on my Sony TV DV movies plays at 24 Hz. My C6 is in bright room and i never felt it needed more brightness, on other hand on my SONY X900F is dimmer than C6 in DV and HDR mode. Samsung Tvs are much brighter in HDR mode people like them better than SONY implementation.
So you are a C6 and a 900F owner? I've been toying with the idea of buying an 85" 900F since the pricing has been super attractive for that monster of a TV for the last month or so but I'm concerned with the drop in quality from the C6. Not sure if I could live with it. My C6 is 65" and would move it to the bedroom and put the 85" 900F in the living room for a more immersive experience. Just not sure if the tradeoffs are worth it. Can u comment on what you see between the two tvs?

Yeah, the main reason why 60hz DV would be nice is not for 60hz content, it's for better compatibility with streaming devices that don't handle switching to 24hz well or at all.

The Xbox does DV at 60 Hz only as well. The 'excuse' was that it is some sort of game mode, but no game on Xbox exists that uses DV. Netflix however is locked in 60 Hz (DV or not) for all content. MS really did a crappy job on DV support as well as on Atmos support on the Xbox.

Xbox only supports DV low-latency mode which is the Sony implementation. Older 2016 LGs can do it because it didn't exist when they were made.
