It's a real shame that LG's warranty is only 1 year.
I'm in Australia so we have good consumer laws. https://www.accc.gov.au/consumers/co...replace-refund
Companies can say whatever they like but they can't take away your rights under those laws.

you’ve got from a business have expired.
These laws have teeth and I've had a lot of success with them. Basically all I've needed to do is mention that I am aware of my rights no matter what they claim, and refer them to that page.
For a TV the price of the LG OLED I would expect at least
5 years of perfect usage.
1 year warranty on a $2k TV is pathetic and all those companies should be ashamed.
You'd think one of them would want to differentiate themselves by standing by their product, but it seems to be a race to the bottom, despite premium prices.

I believe the AVR just passes on the formats from the info provided from the TV, but replaces the name with it's own. ie it pretends to be a display that supports whatever formats the TV does.
I know this because it has caused problems with my Ubuntu HTPC - when the AVR goes into standby it switches something about the EDID, because the AVR is switching from "passthrough with overlay" mode into "standby passthrough with no overlay" mode.
If I have programs open on the HTPC when this happens, they often get confused with the display change.
