To get to the update, click this Korean Site hyperlink then enter OLEDXXB6K in the search bar at the top of the page - see thumbnail) The Korean site still seems to get frequent updates (at least compared to the US) I'm always hopeful a fix for the black glow will sneak in to one of these updates.

The latest available in the US is 05.30.60. - Date 05/07-2019

The UK is showing 05.30.65. - Dated 05-24-2019

The Korean website is showing 05.30.85 - Dated 01-16-2020
Yes, B6. I think I installed 05.30.65

I’m not saying there’s no black glow, I’m just saying that I’m unable to notice any in a darkened room (all lights off, dark outside, but a little bit of stray light from our amps)

I just tested it for a minute or two, no prolonged testing or anything and I have no idea whether it’s there or not. I couldn’t see anything though.

My point however is that we watch in a lit room ordinarily and there it’s certainly not an issue. And the update fixed or significantly reduced other issues that has been really noticeable and annoying.

For those of you who played Shadow of the Tomb Raider and had a bad HDR experience, you may have done what I did and set the brightness too low. Typically HDR games have controls for black level and white level brightness. I assumed that the brightness control was for black level, and so in an attempt to get the deepest shadow detail near black as possible, I ended up turning brightness all the way down, and I ended up with a result that made things appear super washed out, with significant banding in shadows as well. Today, I figured out why this is. It turns out brightness is actually affecting exposure, not black levels. As I play in a dark room, a darker overall image is not really something I typically notice, as my eyes adjust to any brightness level. So the image didn't appear dark to me in the dark room. But while it affects exposure, black levels remain constant, and they're not 100% perfect in this game. So what happens is you bring down the midtones, while shadows stay at the same level of dark grey they were before, which is pretty dark, but not perfectly black. As your eyes adjust to the new exposure, this dark grey becomes more visible, making the game look like it's washed over in a haze, and also compressing the bit depth in the shadows as well, making the steps between brightness levels in those shadows more apparent.

When I turned the brightness up to default, everything immediately appeared more vibrant, and I played for a few minutes to allow my eyes to adjust to the new exposure, and guess what? Shadows actually look much, much better doing this. I think my initial confusion is because the brightness control does in fact control black levels in SDR mode, but that's not the case in HDR.

I was doing some research on the game in case things had changed with HDR, because I was planning to make a video on my youtube channel about the game and wanted to know whether to record in HDR or not, if SDR provided a better picture. Turns out, the HDR wasn't bad, my settings were. I'm usually really good at understanding game HDR calibration settings, but I messed that one up it seems.

I'm actually somewhat interested in testing whether the SDR brightness control, which affects black levels in SDR, also happens to affect black levels in HDR, since I could tell that HDR and SDR brightness are saved separately. Probably unlikely, but I might test that just in case.

I have a Philippine B6 and when I turned on my OLED it informed me that a system update was done.

Checked it and it was 05.30.85.

What’s new with this?

I noticed this yesterday as well when it became available in the US. @Alamei was kind enough to respond. Unfortunately, unless there's a hidden fix not disclosed by LG... it doesn't appear to be anything to get excited about

Completed some initial tests on US firmware 05.30.60 last night. The elevated black glow in a darkened room is still just as present as it was before, but the improvements in picture handling (especially on HDR picture handling via HDMI sources) were more drastic than I expected, having only tested 05.30.03 previously. The changes they made in 05.30.50 were clearly a meaningful overhaul of the image processing engine. I'll be leaving my set on 05.30.60 for the next couple of weeks and experimenting with a combination of SDR/HDR films with and without letterboxing to see whether I feel those picture improvements outweigh the annoyance of the glow during black cuts and minimalist credit lines.

5.30.80 firmware, I managed to get 1440P working on 16:9 Game User. Wasnt previously available. Only 1080P and 4K. As I have three of these, I'm now running 5760*1440 at 60hz Sim Gaming. It's huge news as my 2080ti Nvidia could not push all three screens at 4K each

Very cool. Seems like it was probably an unannounced feature then. Now if only the PS4 would support 1440p output, so I could capture native resolution on games like Uncharted 4. Then again, that'll probably get patched for 4K when PS5 comes out.

One thing that has always sucked about this specific forum thread is when it was created the author unfortunately decided to lump the C6 and B6 models together in the same thread even though they had different displays (curved panel & 3D vs flat panel with no 3D) as well as having "different" chip sets! (insert emoji pulling his hair out) In defense of the author, these sets were very new at the time and very little was known about them. The most important difference was the B6 was the "only model" to get the Realtek chipset. All other models in the 2016 lineup shared the same chip.

That said... "Yes" ... 5.30.80 is for the C6. The latest available firmware update for the B6 ... in the US... is 05.30.60. - Dated 05/07-2019

LG has posted other (later) firmware versions for the 2016 B6 in other countries, most notably Korea.

55" C6 Display Issue

For the past several weeks I've noticed that my 55" C6 is displaying a fairly wide vertical green band on the right and left side of the screen (pic attached). Admittedly I see it most often on one HDMI input to my Marantz receiver, which a from a cable TV set top box. When I switch to Apple TV I'm not sure I see the bands or not. Before I start switching cable and inputs I just wanted to check if anyone has seen this on their set?

I have the 65 inch version and have not seen that before. Try running your clear panel noise.

Software update version 05.30.85 has been getting released (slowly) over different geographic locations for several weeks now. Unfortunately it appears it's nothing to get excited about.

  • Respond to video issue when powering on IP channel (Channel +) (05.30.70)
  • Improved Watcha Play Game of Thrones inconsistent video and audio time (05.30.75)
  • Added HEVC Logo to User Guide (05.30.85)
So the official changes consist mostly of region-specific fixes (e.g., Watcha Play fixes) and legal coverage (including a logo in the user guide was probably required for licensing rules for HEVC and they had left it out before). Those sorts of changes likely will only end up released in other countries as part of a roll-up release if there's another security update required (like 05.30.60) or something along those lines.

If you are asking specifically about the US version of the C6... then you're okay. You are seeing the most current firmware update available via the US website - 05.30.60. Confusion over the different versions is primarily due to the result of members from different geos reporting in. Case in point... Korea is showing 05.30.80 for the C6. FYI: Some members have reported installing Korean updates on their US models with no complications. But proceed at your own risk! If interested in getting the update, click this Korean Site hyperlink then enter OLEDXXC6 in the search bar at the top of the page as shown in the attached thumbnail.

For 2016 models, LG only puts out 2 different FW trees based on the tuner, ATSC for US/KR and DVB for the rest of the world. You can use KR firmware on US devices no problem and they are the same exact files when they do push them to the US servers. They only push out FW to the US servers for major releases while they push out updates to the KR ones for minor updates. The thing is that most of the changes go undocumented in the release notes.

if you wan't to really know that the black glow issue are still present on the latest firmware update on B6, you all need to watch then Mad Max Fury Road HDR movie, in a dark room it's more obvious to see it. Not need to try nothing more, no black SDR slides (black glow on it is almost insignificant).
also black scenes movies HDR like Avengers Infinity war you will notice it very easy. B6 became an LCD in the beginner of this movie instead completely true blacks like it should be.

Black glow is still present in latest, but are you seeing black glow in all the movie?

Black glow on B6 is only noticeable in a complete fade to black screen in pitch dark room, if your seeing it in general picture thats not a complete black screen, I don't think thats the same issue, someone correct me if I'm wrong but thats what Ive always been led to believe, and for me that's the only time I have ever noticed it myself.

That matches my experience in testing 05.30.60 for the past week or so, coming from 04.31.20. Black glow definitely present and visible on scene cuts, but not visible while any meaningful picture is displaying on the set due to the contrast, even on letterboxed films (at least as long as the OLED light isn't increased above the default setting). I don't personally own Fury Road or Infinity War, so I can't test with them in particular, but if the black glow is meaningfully noticeable with content playing on the set, that sounds more like an encoding issue (or a setting issue causing something to go awry with the HDR tone mapping) than the baseline black glow. Were you just seeing it along the top/bottom edge of the display, or was it visible throughout the picture?


I should also say that I'm not particularly familiar with the content of either of those films, so if they have some Lawrence of Arabia-esque black-screen overture to start, then I could certainly see the glow being a factor there.

I've been using Harmony remotes exclusively since 2006 and after getting my B6 I was excited to discover I could "supposedly" enter the LG service menu. As it turned out I soon discovered some Harmony remotes worked better than others in this regard. For example some Harmonys did not recognize the Info button on the LG physical remote or initially provide an option to add the EZ-ADJ button needed to access the service menu. However, with enough determination and tenacity it seems you can get any Harmony to work once you had the proper Harmony code. Members also reported there are multiple videos on YouTube on how to access LG's Hidden secret Service menu via a smartphone. I checked them out as well.

In the end I decided via a smartphone or with my Harmony either option it was more trouble than it was worth. Bottom line: I didn't want to spend "hours" researching and programming the options needed for my Harmony to get a feature I might only use once or twice. In the end... I picked up a genuine LG Factory Service Remote Control off ebay for about 10 bucks. You can read about it in this AVS thread. (If interested... just search ebay for - MKJ39170828)

I'm trying to setup a MadVR 3DLut in DisplayCal using PC with 12 bit 4:4:4 RGB (24Hz). When I changed the TV HDMI2 icon to PC the TV changed the picture settings with wide gamut set as the default. Is this correct or should I force 'Normal' before calibrating using an i1/Colormunki? I am only interested in getting correct calibration for PC input at the moment. Also when doing a MadVR 3DLut for HDR do I switch Windows 10 to HDR mode and set the DisplayCal to HDR Output or toen mapped? I can find very little info about calibrating HDR using DisplayCal and a MadVR 3DLut. Very confusing.

Thanks.
FYI, compensation cycles don't prevent burn in. They are basically backplane maintenance (leveling out the voltages in the transistors that drive the pixels). That can clear up IR and some other picture anomalies that result from some pixels being driven at a different intensity level, but it has no influence at all on differential aging of the pixels.

I tried this movies (HDR10) because are completely black since starting (Mad Max Fury Road as an example) so no need to latter box or credits screen to test it over Panasonic Blu-Ray Player UB310... no changes if I setup differents Chroma outputs... Infinity War had a couple dark scenes like infinity soul stone moment, also tried because is not too dark but it can be reproduce over of many other movies and easily visible (LCD like) to much for my personal like using an OLED panel... so not really a big deal to me at all

Fortunately I was able to downgrade reading some very useful post, thanks some users to make this possible my set is working properly once again.. Very happy with it and with my eeColor 3DLUT external box, SDR Blu-Ray's Movies are "outstanding"

P.S: I have to say anyway I'm hopping this big issue will be fixed one day with a new firmware release. Crossed fingers always

Parts question

I’ve had a 65” C6 for three years now. It developed slight logo burn in and I contacted L.G. about it. Surprisingly, they sent a tech to my house out of warranty and gave me a brand new oled panel replacement free of charge. The tech let me keep my old oled panel. Its just the panel and missing all the circuit boards and parts. I had a crazy mad scientist idea of buying all the parts and rebuilding a second television since the burn in wasn’t too terrible. Has anyone ever attempted this before, would they recommend it, and if so where did you source the parts? Discarding the panel seems like such a waste...
