So y'all don't think the fuzzy lights are an effect of the tv's style of tone mapping?

No, it seems you have expectations for everything to “pop” when that is not the point of using HDR. Directors intent will have things pop that should and things that shouldn’t won’t. Every movie and show should have a healthy mix.

I hope you're right. This is my first LG and even though I'm already really happy with this TV, that would really ensure it won't be my last.

If they fix the 50Hz BT2020 bug in the latest update (I haven't done that update - no changes other than that bug, I believe) and give us a checkbox to choose between tonemapping and clipping for game mode, then this firmware will be perfect for me.

Oh, and allow firmware downgrades. It just irritates me that there's no way to downgrade. I hate it when companies do stuff like that.

Anybody who can provide me with assistance/guidance regarding @sonoftumble his elaborate settings.

He was kind enough to provide me with the details, file and settings.
But for F*'s sake, i can't get it to work.

My 55C7 on EUR FW 04.70.85 just wont read the DV settings file from USB.
I've tried 4 different flash drives.
Formatted 3 ways, FAT, FAT32 & NTFS.
I even tried enabling write protection on the flash drives so that it was a read only USB.

The only thing the set does is pop up the photo prompt, and then nothing else happens.

The C7 goes in DV mode through my Oppo 203, DV is set to Cinema ( although i even tried all other modes ).

Nothing happens when i insert the USB with the config file in the root of the USB as instructed.

I'm not so sure at this point, as even on latest 5.80.04 firmware both SDR/HDR Technicolor profiles default to Warm 2 when settings are restored (even with a full Factory Restore of my B7).

I also tried to zero out both WB and CMS to give Warm 1 a go, but I vastly prefer your current calibrated settings based on Warm 2 + Gamma 2.2 (colors seem more accurate, while on Warm 1 are too "cold" ).

I will keep it that way

Hey all... 9 months into ownership I'm starting to get emails from LG about extending the warranty with the LG Premium Care the "only extended service plan authorized by LG." (???)


Has anyone done this? I've had no issues with the TV that is at around 1800 hours and the 1 year extension seems like an easy choice for $83 and there's also a 3 year extension for $479. I didn't buy mine at Costco so their $99 squaretrade isn't an option either... if that's even a good option.


So... recommendations? I've never bought extended plans and have generally had good luck with electronics over the years with the exception of one LCD panel that died a few months into ownership. At the same time though I've never paid $2500 for a TV till now either.


P.S. I'm assuming it's ok to talk protection plan pricing in this thread.

You will get lots of opinions on this question. Some people swear by extended warranties, others (me included) never buy extended warranties on anything. Ever wonder why the manufacturers and stores are all over trying to sell you extended warranties...because they are huge profit makers for them. Now you will get lots of posts from people basically saying, in general terms, the same thing "I purchased an extended warranty for $x and am so glad I did because I saved $y (much bigger number than $x) on repairs, or got a new product, etc, etc". But this is all anecdotal evidence and of course you never hear from the vast majority of people who purchased the extended warranty and never used it (hence the huge profits).
Net is this is all a personal decision and opinions will differ. I will not post again on this subject but will leave you with this write-up that I saved from someone else that I thought pretty much summed things up nicely on extended warranties -

GAMBLING ANYONE?

What is an extended warranty? A wager between two parties. Look
at what each party brings to the table:

The manufacturer, with all his collective experience, design specs,
intimate knowledge of assembly techniques, tolerances, quality
control, etc., is betting that the product will not fail in any
manner specified in the warranty during the warranty period which
will cost more than the price of the warranty to repair (note who
writes up the terms of the warranty).

You, with no knowledge of the product, have only a vague fear that
it will catastrophically break down during the warranty period and
that repair of such failure will cost far more than the price of the
warranty. On what do you base this opinion? Are you intentionally
buying what you consider to be junk?

Cars, motorcycles, computers, TV's, etc., are all manufactured using statistical sampling techniques for quality
control. The normal warranty that comes with each is an admission
of that it is entirely possible (eventually, inevitable) that an
individual product will not live up to the quality of the group. It
allows the manufacturer to catch the odd substandard product and
bring it up to his standards of quality, without having to
exhaustively test each step of each product throughout its
manufacture. Once the product makes it through the initial warranty
period (whether it required service under that warranty or not), the
manufacturer knows that it is "up to snuff," i.e., conforms to his
specs, quality, etc. At this point, he *knows* how long it will
last. An *extended* warranty is not a safety net for the
manufacturer, it is a chance to make money, by making a wager with
the customer concerning the performance of the product -- *his*
product. He knows it better than you.

Do you wanna bet?

I had the same issues, but I rebooted the TV by holding down the power button on remote and when it came up it recognized it. Already have the drive in the tv when it reboots. Worked for me..

1. That warranty is not from LG, no outside extended warranty needs authorization, as such what "authorized by LG" literally means may be dubious if not meaningless.
2. Extended warranties are for their profit. If you look at the big picture, your lifetime, you will spend more money on extended warranties than you will get back from them. If that were false then extended warranties would not be profitable.
3. If a person feels they have over extended themselves and somehow took an unnecessary risk, then they may provide peace of mind.
4. If you can't afford to replace a $2500 TV then why not use the $479 to get a replacement TV when the expensive one fails. In the meantime, that $479 is in your bank earning you interest, not them, and the chance of you never having to use that $479 are somewhere between 99.999% to 99.9999997%, in your favor.

I guess you life in a country with just 1 year of warranty then?
Did you buy it with a credit card? Some cards add automatically another year or two of warranty if you buy it with them.

In any case, if your past shows bad luck with hardware, get it.

Not for that movie no. Check the opening scene of John Wick chapter 2 for example. Night time car chase and the whole thing is super vibrant and ultra sharp (almost grain free) and you will see it’s a completely different look. I do seem to remember a lot of people were not impressed with Batman vs Superman’s visuals when it launched too.

Just as a heads up you do NOT have to purchase the TV at Costco to buy the ST warranty from them. Of course now (9 months later) it’s too late to get one. As far as getting one, it’s a personal decision. Some swear by them, others never get one. They are just like insurance, you don’t need one until you do. For me personally I get an ST warranty for under $100. Even if I don’t need it, it’s one less thing I have to think about if something ever goes wrong.

I received a similar email. I purchased an additional year for $65.03. At the time of purchase(Feb 2018), I figured for such little money I would get some additional insurance. Fast forward to July of this year my panel developed a thin horizontal line and LG(original 1 year warranty) authorized a panel replacement. So, I already had my panel replaced under warranty and I'm still covered for a second year until October of 2019 in case any other issues pop up. I plan on replacing this tv with a new OLED in 2020.

Installing someone else’s DV config file without doing the grayscale adjustments, is probably worse than doing nothing. The factory DV config file is setup to be good/OK on all panels where as the custom one is only for that specific panel.

Thanks for the replies everyone! I decided to bypass the 3 year $479 and just go with the 1 year extension for $83. It's mainly for peace of mind. I've always had pretty good luck with electronics but if anything does happen I'm covered. I'd definitely wager that repairs would cost more than the $83 I spent.

This will have my 65" B7 covered till Feb 2020 shortly before the 2020 models are released. I told myself when I bought it that 2020 would be the earliest I'd consider an upgrade... so the timing will work out well and $83 is worth it for another year of peace of mind. I paid cash for the TV and it just has the 1 year warranty. Next time I'll probably go with the CC for the perks.

Thanks all!

No one should feel bad about doing an extended warranty or led to feel bad for the choice. Just getting a stuck pixel on my C7 and just over a year ownership and out of warranty period I would have been, no pun intended stuck without it. Now just hoping when I call there no C7 panels to swap and I can grab a C8. If not that's fine too,. But it would be nice. Have a great and safe holiday everyone.

Not for that movie no. Check the opening scene of John Wick chapter 2 for example. Night time car chase and the whole thing is super vibrant and ultra sharp (almost grain free) and you will see it’s a completely different look. I do seem to remember a lot of people were not impressed with Batman vs Superman’s visuals when it launched too.
You are right john wick 2 opening scene is much better in hdr.

Wow - the one year from LG for the 77G7P was over $1,000 - ST which is great has a price limited on the price of TV's but if you qualify that is the way to cheap and reliable!!

Pretty crazy... like the guy you quoted I went ahead with the 1 year. With tax it was $90... or $7.50 per month for the year. Compared to the 3 year which was $527 with tax... I'll take my chances after my 1 year factory warranty and 1 year extended. It's good timing for me.. my 2 year warranty will expire shortly before the 2020 models are released and that's when I may upgrade.

He was kind enough to provide me with the details, file and settings.
But for F*'s sake, i can't get it to work.

My 55C7 on EUR FW 04.70.85 just wont read the DV settings file from USB.
I've tried 4 different flash drives.
Formatted 3 ways, FAT, FAT32 & NTFS.
I even tried enabling write protection on the flash drives so that it was a read only USB.

The only thing the set does is pop up the photo prompt, and then nothing else happens.

The C7 goes in DV mode through my Oppo 203, DV is set to Cinema ( although i even tried all other modes ).

Nothing happens when i insert the USB with the config file in the root of the USB as instructed.
I don't know if you got this working, but I found from feedback that you need to format FAT32 as a "Master Boot Record". Most have reported that powering off the TV, and then inserting the stick, and powering up will get you the install prompt.

For those who asked, I updated the LG 2017 OLEDs Calibrated Settings for X1X (and for Gaming in general) adding Option 1 and Option 2 for both SDR/HDR:


Please also note that:
  • If you prefer Option 2 ("non-PC"), remember to adjust again all in-game HDR sliders around 4.000 nits when possible (or re-hide in-game logos);
  • Both SDR/HDR Option 2 ("non-PC") profiles' Sharpness is now set to 20 as, differently than Technicolor/ISF, 20 is its neutral value instead of 10;
  • HDR Game Color of Option 2 ("non-PC") is back to its default of 65 instead of 55 as, differently than Technicolor, 65 is the color match between those profiles
  • HDR Game Dynamic Contrast of Option 2 ("non-PC") is back to MEDIUM for the best accuracy/luminance ratio.

Hi,

Does anyone know if it is possible to disable the tv from showing which HDMI port is active on it. I only use one HDMI port on it and I find it completely useless and a bit annoying to have this displayed every time I start the TV

Has anyone done this? I've had no issues with the TV that is at around 1800 hours and the 1 year extension seems like an easy choice for $83 and there's also a 3 year extension for $479. I didn't buy mine at Costco so their $99 squaretrade isn't an option either... if that's even a good option.


So... recommendations? I've never bought extended plans and have generally had good luck with electronics over the years with the exception of one LCD panel that died a few months into ownership. At the same time though I've never paid $2500 for a TV till now either.


P.S. I'm assuming it's ok to talk protection plan pricing in this thread.
I received the same thing in my email. Funny thing though, when I went to https://lg.yourserviceplan.com/prese...ayer/home.aspx and entered in my OLED info manually, more extended warranty options became available....and they were all cheaper than quoted with my "personal invitation code"! Don't buy with your invitation code...go and see what is available to you through that link!

Yeah I did. I actually stumbled upon that when I logged into the LG site to check my warranty info and I input everything and got the same pricing for the 1 and 3 year extensions. The only difference from that and the invitation was that link also gave me a 2 year option.


The 1 year was what I went with... I didn't like the 3 year price and 2 years wasn't that interesting either. 1 year was less than $100 and will get me through till the 2020 models are announced at which time I will be considering an upgrade.

I don't do extended warranties on 99% of things but I did on my b7. It was$90 for a square trade for three years. Cheap for piece of mind.

Xfinity/Comcast cable (set top box) with 65” LG B7

Hey all,

I’m sure there are threads here relating to this but I’m so overwhelmed so please don’t flame me for starting a new topic. I’m not an expert but have some above average knowledge. I’ve had my tv since January and I can’t help but think the quality of cable tv on this B7 looks like pure crap. I know Comcast broadcasts in 720 (even tho I can change it to 1080p in the xfinity settings) but the image quality is just so bland and blurry. Nothing really wow’s me or looks good (only speaking to cable, uhd movies and video gamers and Netflix all that look great). Is there anything I can do to optimize this tv to make basic cable look good? I’m a huge sports fan, hockey, football, baseball, WWE (lol) and with so much movement and motion it looks awful. It’s like a huge rabbit hole and every time I set out to try and make it look the best possible I get no where. So basically I’m asking for some advice from the community on what I can do to make standard definition content look the best as possible. Help a fellow OLED owner out! Please and thanks In advance.

Guys how can make the tv stay in HDR mode when it is on the menu or showing off the art pics and sample photos it has stored inside? Generally how can i make the tv show off hdr photos in hdr? Whatever i do the tv is not going into hdr mode unless it detects hdr video.
