I have a Vu+ cable receiver connected to the TV with HDMI. The TV is connected with HDMI to an AVR over the ARC port. Everything works, except I can't use the STB button on the Magic Remote to turn on the Vu+ receiver. When I use the original Vu+ Remote, the TV and the AVR are turning on and bot switches to the correct HDMI input(Simplink / CEC is enabled on all devices). Now I want to turn on the Vu+ with the Magic Remote. According to tutorials, there should be a menu to select manufacturer of the STB, but this Point does not appear on my TV, when using the device connector. On Step 2 (selecting HDMI Input) I can only hit finish on the top right corner. Did I miss something?

LG B7 Error Messages

Hi, ever since I've installed a Roku, my TV has been sending two types of errors. The first mentions "Unknown Device is Disconnected". I've read elsewhere this can happen when the Roku is powered via USB port, but I have it plugged into an outlet. The other error I have states my wired internet connection has disconnected. I checked to ensure that the cord was properly plugged in.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

I also get that Unknown device disconnected message on my 65B7A. I have an Nvidia Shield connected, but it's been powered down for a couple of months. I'm also connected to ethernet.

I also have an LG G6 phone, Bluetooth is turned off.

I wonder what the heck is going on.

I think, therefore I am single.

Are there any agreeed upon settings for gaming in Standard (to help tone down the highlight blowout) or another mode beside HDR Game? I saw 256ks setting thread for 2016 sets but he uses the HDR game setting (which I think got changed to be brighter a few weeks back). Any help would be appreciated. I’ve tried to search the forums but with all the posts that have been going on around this issue I can’t find one that’s a real winner. Even Rtings doesn’t get into the details for HDR Game settings, much less the Standard setting if used for gaming. Thanks.
Pc or console, which console?

Thanks. Unfortunately, it's been happening for the last two days.

I wonder if I should contact VUDU or LG in this case. Thoughts?

Also if you have any UHD Blu-Ray discs from Sony(Ghostbusters, Spider-Man, The Shallows, Bridge on the River Kwai, etc) go to the top menu and press 7-6-6-9 on the number keys on your player's remote and you will be greeted with 23 HDR10 test patterns including rec.2020, dci.p3, and rec.709 color slides, black level patterns, grayscale bars, and white level pattern that goes from 100-10,000 nits so you can observe how the TV is tone mapping HDR10. You can press the chapter skip button to cycle through them and if your player offers the option press repeat so it doesn't change automatically.

Can confirm this with the updated Hulu app on my B7A. Handmaid’s Tale and Runaways (at least) are DD+. After I’ve already watched all episodes in stereo, of course. Strangely, Transformers: The Last Knight is still stereo.

HI Everyone,

I have an LC C7 and LG SK10y soundbar. I was hoping to hook everything up to the soundbar via the HDMI inputs in order to get lossless atmos and disable CEC so that i didn't have to deal with CEC issues when setting up my Harmony Remote, but it occurred to me that i would not be able to get any sound from the LG C7 apps like netflix and what not without hooking up Optical. Is that logic sound?

Through roku, shield, xbox one x, i can get everything i need that the LG streaming apps have, but hey i'm lazy sometimes and it's just easier to deal with the LG c7 apps. The issue is that LG c7 only offers lossy atmos over ARC and no atmos over Optical (i get it is not losseless like i would get via the HDMI inputs such as xbox one x).

It seems like if i want to get sound via the TV Apps to my soundbar then i either use optical or enable CEC on my TV and use HDMI ARC. Is that the really the only way? I'm asking all of this because i heard if you have a lot of devices hooked up then CEC can become a real pain in the rear. I just see no way around it.

Last question, why don't these TVs come with a NON-ARC HDMI output -- seems like that would fix this dilemma. I'm kind of new to all of this, so please correct any of my misunderstandings.

Thanks

Yes. You need a way to get sound from the TV to the soundbar if you want to use the built-in apps.

The only place you'll get lossless (TrueHD) Atmos is from a UHD. I don't think you're losing anything by using the built-in apps.

Have you actually hooked it all up and tried it? I suspect the Roku, Shield, and TV should all control just fine via CEC with the LG remote. Not sure about the XB1X but you probably only need remote control for that if you're playing a UHD, which you're probably not doing all the time.

Now that I finally have my Apple TV 4K hooked up and going, I'm having major issues. Having narrowed it down tonight, it's Dolby Vision content. Regular HD and HDR movies look fine, but anything I watch that uses Dolby Vision literally looks like someone upscaled an SD copy with some added HDR. Grainy as hell and highlights blown out. It just looks god awful. And I'm using the same DV settings I use for my UHD player, which plays it just fine on the disks I own. Any idea what the heck could be causing this? Cable itself tests fine, and I tried a reset of the video settings too.

Your plan usea Harmony remote is reasonale if you cannot get the LG remote to control everything (loosing magic pointer and voice control). Do the following with the Harmony:
- turn on CEC in the TV and souundbar
- turn off CEC in all other devices
- setup all your activities normally, and test out the operation of starting activities, switching activities, and turning off activities
- add any necessary commands to activities as required

It is quite workable with a litte effort.

The tv performs fine, I don't know if this shift occurred during my handling of it. It's in the black bezel area, before the actual image is displayed.

Has anybody had this happen?
Did you get a great deal on it? Can you return it? If not don't sweet it. If it works it must not be a big issue

Guys, I can choose between a C7 65 inch or a 55 inch C8 for the same price. What would you do and why?

How much is the picture quality difference. I am looking for a brighter OLED panel. At the moment I own a B6 55 inch and HDR content is mostly dark/dimmed.

How much more for the 65" C8? Your question begs more questions because size is important. Sure the 55" C8 is the latest 55" model but it's still only 55". Not that there's anything wrong with a 55" set, if you ignore the part about it not being 65". Yeah, yeah, you could say the same about the 77", except that it's way out of most people's price range.

We went from a 52" LCD to a 65C7P and I can tell you that we'd never go below 65" again.

So compared to the C8 it’s a safe bet? The 65 inch is around 800 euros more.

The difference in nits is negligible between the 7 and 8 series, improvements with this year's LG models are processing (assuming you use that feature) via the A9 chip. Another improvement seems to be in the uniformity department. If I was in your shoes I would go for the larger screen without hesitation - that a big step up in screen area and will add to your enjoyment of whatever content you've decided to watch. Going from the B6 to 7 series is definitely noticeable regarding brightness - less aggressive ABL vs. your 6 series.



Here's a good start for the 7 v 8:

I have not seen the 2018 models, and I'm happy with our 2017 65C7P. But, after seeing your second post to this thread about wanting a "brighter OLED panel", I'm just going to say that, all things being equal, size matters. I'm not really comfortable saying what you'd be satisfied with, so I'd say you should look for yourself before buying. OTOH, you might find improvement with settings adjustments to your current set, or preferably a calibration by a pro.

Thank you guys for your fast responses. I am not satisfied with the brightness level of my current B6 for watching HDR content. For SDR it’s perfect don’t get me wrong. For HDR I am looking for a brighter HDR image overall.

Sorry about the delay....no difference in brightness between 7 and 8 series but there is a bump in brightness from 6 to 7.

For the first time ever, last night when playing an HDR ps4 game, we had to turn down the brightness down on our B7a. Was giving us headaches. I have no idea why anyone would ever want a brighter image than what an OLED can do unless you are using the TV outside or something.

My doubts are because I have read several reports about the C8 being brighter.

It just looks god awful. And I'm using the same DV settings I use for my UHD player, which plays it just fine on the disks I own. Any idea what the heck could be causing this? Cable itself tests fine, and I tried a reset of the video settings too.
How does DV look when the apple is connected directly to the tv.

I have an apple tv 4k and DV looks fantastic.

I went from 55" f9000 samsung to 65" b7, and the B7 feels bright enough.
I think you will find that a larger set emits more total light than a smaller one, hence going 65" will be more important than 7-8.
