Amperage for USB ports on C7

Does anybody know the amperage for the USB3 and USB 1 ports on the C7?

I have some external USB cooling fans for my Denon receiver that I'd prefer to plug in to the TV, since the Denon USB port is always powered and the TV ports are only powered when the TV is on.

The 2 fans (AC Infinity MULTIFAN S7) pull .58 amps each on 5V DC. I just want to make sure they aren't overloading the USB ports on the TV.

As I've mentioned earlier, I've tried different cables, tried the Belkin 6ft cable, replaced the Apple TV 4k, tried different settings on the Apple TV and the LG. All firmware is updated on both the TV and the Apple TV.
Have you tried Premium Certified Cables? If not, you need to you. That is the #1 reason for ATV error......

That was discussed at the beginning of this thread somewhere. It's not recommended to use those ports to power something like cooling fans, a Roku stick or usb drive is about the extent of their value. Personally, I use a dual Coolor Guys fan which sits on top of Denon 4300, its quite enough that I just let them run all the time.

There is no perfect display, quit looking for faults and enjoy

The Monoprice certified premium HDMI cables are what i've been using and the cables that are now causing me issues. Here's what I think is the issue with them - they are too small/loose in the HDMI port and just aren't making a stable enough connection. They just slid in the ports before my board replacement and they do the same on the new ports. there's no grab at all. I've tried some other cables now for multiple days and each one had zero issues running 4k 60hz a 4:4:4 and 4:2:0.

Been using the certified monoprice in entire chain all have a "tight" fit and no problems. Have both regular certified and the 36AWG Slim Certified HDR Premium.

As I've mentioned earlier, I've tried different cables, tried the Belkin 6ft cable, replaced the Apple TV 4k, tried different settings on the Apple TV and the LG. All firmware is updated on both the TV and the Apple TV.
I hope this information can be of some help to you! This is what I've experienced.

Quick summary - I have the same problem as you - cutting out to static/black screen (on 4:4:4 and 4:2:0). My setup is a 65B7A and an Apple TV 4K, and was using Monoprice certified premium cables for months, 15ft, without issue. All of a sudden, the problems started happening again. Here's what I think was going on: these cables were always looser than I'd expect - for example they slide very easily into the HDMI ports on my tv. no pushback, no grab. Just in and out. This was something I noticed from the beginning, but it worked so I didn't bother to care. I think it was just making a bad connection over time and eventually it was reached a point where it wasn't making a strong enough connection to carry the bandwidth. Additionally, The board on my oled was just replaced which means I received brand new HDMI ports on my TV. The cables were just as loose and I still had the issues.

SO, I've now purchased multiple cables, including another of the Monoprice certified HDMI cable to test. All in 15ft.

Results so far:

-The Monoprice cable seemed just as loose with a brand new cable, so I didn't even try it. Not going to be in the same boat 5 months from now.

-Amazon Basics HDMI cable, 15ft - very grippy in port, used this for 2 days, 10 hours a day 4k 60hz 4:4:4 and have had ZERO issues
Link: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

UPDATE: was sitting here with my tv on the apple tv 4K home screen, not in HDR or anything (but in 4:4:4 - wondering if I should just try everything on 4:2:0 since technically the cables don't have enough bandwidth to handle 4khdr 60hz 4:4:4) -----Sewell Silverback HDMI cable - decent grip, I've used this going on 3 days now, 10 hours a day 4K 60hz 4:4:4 and have had ZERO issues.


I also purchased a couple of others to try before I make my decision about ripping my current ones out of the wall and having the installer come back to put new ones in. I'm hoping this FastRider I'm going to use starting this evening works (https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1). cable wise it's the thinnest and it'll give the installer the least trouble in the tubing.

So, with that said, why don't you try one of those two cables above (the sewell is more flexible, so maybe make that your first purchase). They're working for me and stable at 15ft, so they should be fine at lower lengths.

I'm about to call LG for service, but I'm a little concerned after reading your comment that the motherboard replacement didn't fix the issue.
Rich
I mean, who can say, haha - but I think so. I've had ZERO issues with shorter lengths on my OLEDS (also have a 55" upstairs), but as soon as I went up to longer lengths I started having the problem.

and yes, my board was replaced, new HDMI ports and all and I still had the same issues with the monoprice certified cables I was using. But what I think I've realized is the cables weren't making a grippy enough connection inside the ports. the cables just sorta slid in and out, almost loose, on both the old board and the new one.

Bought a couple of other HDMI cables, 15ft off of amazon and have been using each of them multiple days, 10 hours a day, with no issue. Using them at 4k 60hz 4:4:4. Tried hooking up the monoprice cables again and they were cutting out in a matter of minutes.

Here's what I've tried so far at 15ft and had no issue. One would think lesser lengths would work equally as well:

-Amazon Basics HDMI cable, 15ft - very grippy in port, used this for 2 days, 10 hours a day 4k 60hz 4:4:4 and have had ZERO issues
Link: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

UPDATE: was sitting here with my tv on the apple tv 4K home screen, not in HDR or anything (but in 4:4:4 - wondering if I should just try everything on 4:2:0 since technically the cables don't have enough bandwidth to handle 4khdr 60hz 4:4:4), and the panel flashed static and went to a no signal screen. Gonna count these out. So far the winner in the Amazon cable. -- Sewell Silverback HDMI cable - decent grip, I've used this going on 3 days now, 10 hours a day 4K 60hz 4:4:4 and have had ZERO issues.


I have two more to try as I want to give myself options (and doing in wall installations, I want to make sure that I choose the most durable cable (thickness and flexibility matter during the install).

I even bought a brand new one off of amazon and the fit is not very tight on my new board which was just installed in my tv. Not going to chance it (I'd also replaced them previously due to two cables being DOA and they were loose then as well). Glad you have some tight fitting ones, but I've now bought 9 of them and they've all been loose fitting.

Jut got my display panel replaced

::UPDATE::

within 20 minutes of me posting this, my TV turned itself off and when I try to turn it on, the status light blinks, I see for a split second the input in the top left corner and the TV powers off.

I'm obviously incredibly frustrated now. I've called the technician who is going to call me back after the job he's currently on. There's honestly no way for him to really say at this point if it's the board that failed or the new display panel. So, I just don't know what's going to happen.

--original post--

So, finally got my display panel replaced yesterday. They basically sent a new screen minus all components. The installer took out the new board he just put in last week, the power stuff from my old TV and placed it in the new unit. Also used the same white back cover on the back (which is great because that means my serial number is still the same for my extended warranty).

Only downside, we turned it on and there is *one* dead pixel. Black. one tiny tiny little pixel. at any sort of normal viewing distance it can't be seen...so, I decided to not return it. The reason that swayed me into this decision is that this panel, luckily displays little to no banding. Can't see one band in the content i'd normally see it in before. I do notice that I have a slight (I mean SLIGHT) discoloration on the left side on a white screen (slightly, yellow) but this isn't visible on any content.

So, yay! here's hoping this panel works out!

At 15’ you are pressing the limit of the cable if you are trying to pass 4K60 HDR 4:4:4. You may want to look into BlueJeans or an active cable from Monorpice. You can take a look in previous posts that members with cable lengths that long get iffy performance from “regular” cables. You’ll spend a little more money, but youll have a better chance of not having issues.

(Yes I know there are people with “regular” cables at 15’ and they work).

...
I've heard that if the MB does not detect all is OK w the display, it would shut down the TV... so I'd say something is up w the new display or there's some routine that needed to be done in the service menu post display replacement, or you are really out of luck ! (But at least you got your cables sorted ;-) )

Glad that you now have cables that work for you. I’ve never experienced that issue with the premium certified monoprice cables myself thankfully.

Can we talk about PC Mode + ISF for a minute?

If I were to play games in SDR only, wouldn't PC Mode + ISF provide the best picture? Someone on another forum claimed that PC Mode + ISF is not recommended for neither SDR or HDR, but I thought the problems were exclusive to HDR? He claimed that there are issues with the gamma curve and more washed out colours when using PC Mode with ISF in SDR as well. Is that true?

I just want low input lag and a correct picture when playing games in SDR, and as far as I know, that's the only way to get it.

The 2 fans (AC Infinity MULTIFAN S7) pull .58 amps each on 5V DC. I just want to make sure they aren't overloading the USB ports on the TV.
I believe it's specified at 0.5 Amp but I run led's that I cut down to take about 2 amp. Over that the supply 'blinks' ie the supply appears to be limited.

Someone on another forum claimed that PC Mode + ISF is not recommended for neither SDR or HDR, but I thought the problems were exclusive to HDR? He claimed that there are issues with the gamma curve and more washed out colours when using PC Mode with ISF in SDR as well. Is that true?

I just want low input lag and a correct picture when playing games in SDR, and as far as I know, that's the only way to get it.
I can confirm PC Mode colors are now fixed in all modes on 5.80.04, but HDR has still issues as seems still limited to 8-bit, introducing color banding and gradients artifacts especially with 4K/HDR Blu-rays (e.g. with Planet Earth 2), but also with games. No matter if Enabling/Disabling 4:2:2 on console video settings.

If you want to setup these TVs for gaming the best way possible, have a look here and let me know:

EDIT: Don't let the original date of the post throw you off. It was very recently updated with all new settings.

I just updated to 05.80.04; are your settings still good, or do I have to re-enter them? Or are you planning a completely new calibration for it?

I also just updated to 05.80.04, and all the custom settings are still in place. The picture looks fantastic as always; and the SAME as far as I can tell.

FW updates don't generally impact the higher levels associated with calibration settings, and I don't see a need to run a new calibration at this point.

There is a new version of DV - "1.4.4_08.01" - which may provide a fix or two for those who have noticed elevated blacks with the previous version - "1.4.4_07.01".

I just watched a little bit of "Coco" in DV/Atmos running the Vudu app on my AppleTV 4K. I thought the picture was gorgeous and bright. "Arrival" and "Blade Runner 2049" were still pretty dark . . . . some of that is intentional, and some of it has to do with the dreaded Tone Mapping!!!

Overall, things look great. You should be enjoying the same PQ as I am.

Sorry,

I haven't done any gaming specific settings. However, my daughter brings out her PS4 on occasion, and we use the same picture modes for that as we do for watching TV or movies; i.e. SDR technicolor Expert and HDR technicolor Expert. Things look great from what I can tell, but then again we are not doing any MMP things that may require lower lag responses than the usual "TV" picture modes.

Game mode doesn’t really require specific settings for me. I use w45 color temp and leave everything else default with medium dynamic contrast on for HDR. That’s it really. I wish auto color gamut was an option though instead of locking it to wide.

I updated to the new 5.80.04 firmware. Visually, everything looks the same. But I’m now having ARC issues.

I have a Sony STR-DN1080 which used to work just fine with my 65C7. Everything goes through the receiver, and only TV audio goes back via CEC/ARC.

Well as of tonight, when I turn the TV off the receiver turns off and then immediately back on again, causing the TV to also turn itself on. I re-seated all my HDMI cables with no luck. For now I’ve just disabled CEC on the receiver entirely. A full power cycle tomorrow may fix it.

Fair warning for those looking to upgrade. This firmware seems to have changed something with CEC/ARC and prevents my DN1080 from turning off.

I am using a Harmony remote and have CEC turned off in terms of allowing it to control on and off for both my receiver (Yamaha) and the TV. I am wondering if you noticed any difference with the ability of the TV to send sound to the receiver via ARC since the update? I still think I will wait a few days to see how others like the FW update before installing it myself. However, if there are problems sending sound via ARC, then I will probably skip it.

Just for clarity, what you described is a CEC issue not an ARC issue.

I've tried the link to the firmware with three different browsers and can't get it to work.
