4.) LGs 2018 processing, banding, and vignetting will be on par with Sony’s (close now from what I have been reading)
5.) Sony x900e or 930e. Which from my understanding the x900e has better motion, but 930e better color and precision black. Viewing angle still sucks tho
I am at least waiting for CES for the new model specs.. Another issue to consider is the HDMI 2.1/hdr10+ addition

Seems to be some kind of issue between the receiver and the tv/shield tv. When I start the movie, the HDR signal is (sometimes) detected but then it goes right back to SDR mode. When I then go into the audio settings in KODI, and disable audio passthrough, the HDR mode is detected and runs fine. When I then enable the audio passthrough again, it stays in HDR and works fine. This behaviour stays the same when I disable audio passthrough in the settings. Bit at a loss here :/

Ps4pro lgoled55b7v

Dear Forum,

After a lot of reading and specially the review made by AVSFORUMS, i decided to rob a bank and got myself a LG OLED55B7V.
The only purpose to get this TV was ... gaming.

I have the PS4 PRO connected to the TV thru HDMI and i get the full RGB thing highlighted (sorry my lack of technical terms).

My question is, should i use the PC mode (renamed the HDMI1) or leave it to HDMI1?
When using PC mode the screen seems a bit too dark and the colors a bit washed out BUT it looks very natural, maybe our eyes are used to vivid colors and that makes PC mode looks softer.

What is PC mode? what does it give me? is it better or worse?
What do you guys use when playing PS4PRO on this TV or similar? Which settings you use to get the best out of the PS4PRO?

Thanks alll and sorry my poor english.

JP

Mine is 708. I assume that the "7" = 2017, and that "08" = August? Which means that your C7 was made in May of this year? Am I guessing that correctly?

All the new firmware adds is the ability to get TrueHD input from an external device and convert it to DD+ over ARC. DD+ over ARC was always there for internal applications and if the external device sent DD+ in the first place.

I thought 4.30.x was the 6 series firmware and that the 7 series were at 4.70.x

If you start with the 2 point - and get that as close to perfect as humanly possible - then when you scan the 20 point, you should only have a few ( 2-3 ) points to adjust with the 100% being the most important for setting the reference white.

I am glad to hear you are enjoying these settings. Always happy to share, even though I catch a lot of flack from some for doing so.

55b7a dead

Hey all, long time lurker here. Managed to skim through a bunch of the thread here but haven’t seen anyone w a similar situation. Took ownership of a new B7A mid October and last week out of nowhere it decided not to power on. I’ll get a few blinks out of the standby led about a second of input source displayed then back to black.
I’ve contacted LG for a repair service but wanted to see if there was something obvious I was missing.
Thanks

Thanks for the reply. It was a setting in the PS4. I changed it from PCM to bitstream and that solved the problem.

Both B7 and C7 models should benefit from these settings. This is assuming that your panel’s performance / specs are fairly close to mine. Variances in panels may yield different results. For most of us, it should be very close. If the variance is less than 3%, you will enjoy an awesome SDR and HDR picture.

These are actual meter based calibration settings ( vs. disc based ) using a Spectracal C6 meter, Murideo 6G pattern generator, and CalMan for Biz 2017.

NOTES: As with all calibrations, getting the 2 point white balance as close to perfect meant that the 20 point needed only the 100% IRE adjustment for reference white. All delta errors were under 2% and many were < 1%. That’s a testament as to how great these LG OLED TV’s are. This in turn paves the way for super accurate colors and smooth tracking through each color percentage reference points.
You should enjoy superb looking natural flesh tones and a nice color contrast and pop even with SDR content. Black levels are also excellent which one should expect from an OLED.

DOLBY VISION: The most recent version of CalMan includes two DV workflows. The second “DV custom" workflow allows the calibrator to create a special file just for 2017 LG OLED’s, which is saved to a thumb drive and then loaded into the TV. Spectracal, Dolby, and LG worked very closely together to create this awesome workflow. It’s actually faster and easier to go through than an SDR calibration.
To install, you start out by playing DV content on the TV, and set the picture mode to "Cinema ( User )”. Next, plug in the thumb drive with the special file into the USB port on the side. The TV will prompt you and ask if you would like to install the file. Answer "Yes" and less than a second later ( it's a very small < 1K ) the file is loaded. And you are done. Eject the thumb drive and enjoy.

The DV “custom” workflow focuses on greyscale and once the 2 point and 20 point have been adjusted, Calman then creates the file ( plain text ) and the calibration session is complete. There are no other adjustments, and the CMS is left untouched. The White Balance settings will remain zero’d out after loading the file, but you will notice a difference in the PQ. If you are interested in taking a closer look at this file, you should private message me with an email address so I can send to you. WARNING: At this point there does not appear to be a way to reverse this process. So, if you are not happy with the PQ after loading the file . . . . sorry. However, I am seeing a rather dramatic improvement in contrast and black levels. In many ways it is actually brighter, although the OLED light is set to only 50. Flesh tones and colors are natural. Good pop without exaggeration.

[ A note about the CMS ( Color Management System ) adjustments. I have a calibration partner who is an LG OLED guru and provided me with lots of guidance with the below calibration settings. He has done over 3,000 calibrations over the years. He has calibrated dozens of 2017 LG OLEDS and adjusted the CMS as necessary with zero issues or artifacts to report. We have never had to return to a customer site to zero out the CMS. We use several reference UHD Blu-ray discs to test for these things. The 2016 LG OLED are a different story altogether, but LG has rectified the problem with the 2017 models. So, as they say: “It’s safe to go back into the water.” ]

I don't know why I keep looking at this but something is not right. I'm trying to help and here's my comments:
1) I haven't used the ISF version of Calman in a long time but I would like to see a SDR gray scale layout with the Gamma curve and the RGB balance set to auto. When you post that i'll explain what I see and how it affects the picture.
2) I just realized that you only adjusted the 100 and 90 ire in the 20 pt!

We can talk about HDR later but if you can do the above i'll be able to show you something interesting.

Anyone have a B7A and using the latest firmware 04.70.07? Does HDR game mode has "dim" issues? I just ordered a B7A this morning but on LG's USA site it doesn't list any firmware for B7A, only the B7P...I assumed they would use the same firmware?

Secondly, this is for my 2nd room so I only have a soundbar there with 5.1 DD input via optical for now. I should run all my stuff directly to TV's hdmi, which will then pass 5.1 via optical or up to atmos through ARC?

Optical doesn’t support DD+, thus doesn’t support Atmos. So, max you will get is regular DD5.1.

I hope this is not a lame question...I am seriously considering buying this TV. Seeing that there are almost 14K posts on this thread.... a rather daunting task to gather opinions and relevant info on the TV....is there a place in this thread that would be a good starting place to begin to read. ( hopefully not post #1 ) Looking at the last post, and going backwards, also seems a bit off for me as it is deep into details and specifics.

Thanks

hey, on your calibration, i am just trying to get started with basics to get up and running. i had my e6 professionally done. i turn off all the extra stuff like you did. but should i just ignore 20 point and CMS and just stick to the basic color adjustments you did?

As far as I have understood it, the game mode is still dim and will probably stay that way as long as LG insists it is a feature and not a bug.

Banding and vignetting on par with Sony? Those are issues from the panel unless you're referring to gradient banding and no I don't think Sony is being allowed to cherry pick their panels from LG. There might be some advantages with Sony's video processing such as motion interpolation, gradient banding and less posterization issues but there are also some disadvantage such as ABL and HDR tone mapping.

Sounds like you're drinking too much of the Sony kool-aid, I'm probably guilty of this also as I covet the advantages from the Sony but I'm under no illusion that they has some magic dust to hide near black banding and vignetting (this now appears to be a rather rare occurrence regardless) from the panel. But as you alluded to LG got closer with the last firmware update.

I'm intrigued by the Panasonic EZ950 series as it at least has a no B.S. design like the B7/C7 models but it's not available in the U.S market so that's that.

thanks, my soundbar is a few years old and maxes out at 5.1 for now so that's fine...until I upgrade But if I use HDMI ARC, I can say put an Xbox on HDMI 3 and HDMI 2 will send audio back to soundbar...?

I have been on the 4.x FW since day one so I don't have a comparison for game mode. Having said that, the last thing I would consider it is dim. I have been playing a few HDR games on the X and to be honest it is sometimes too bright.

I'm assuming that you will NOT be applying these settings to your E6!

If you are going to stick to the basic settings without getting into the white balance and CMS; then start with "ISF Expert (Dark Room)", set the Gamma to 2.2, set the color to 46, and the Gamut to "Extended". Follow the rest of the basic settings as I listed them. ( Thanks to D-Nice for the Color and Extended Gamut settings suggestion ). The 2 point/20 point and color tuner may or may not match up with your panel due to manufacturing variances. Also, I would get a couple hundred break-in hours under its belt before messing with the white balance and CMS.

Thanks
If you're looking for experiences from actual owners then I hope you're a speed reader. If you're looking for relevant information and a less daunting task then may I suggest watching YouTube videos from Vincent Teoh/HDTVtest pertaining to the LG OLED displays. He goes into great detail (sometimes he's annoying repetitive) and covers what seems to be every nuance of the TV and its advantage/disadvantages compared to the Sony and Panasonic (not relevant here though there are rumors that they may reenter our market but that seems less likely with each passing day).

1) I haven't used the ISF version of Calman in a long time but I would like to see a SDR gray scale layout with the Gamma curve and the RGB balance set to auto. When you post that i'll explain what I see and how it affects the picture.

2) I just realized that you only adjusted the 100 and 90 ire in the 20 pt!

We can talk about HDR later but if you can do the above i'll be able to show you something interesting.
1) I saved the data from my most recent SDR run, so when I get a moment, I will fire up Calman and load that session. I should be able to set the RGB balance to Auto and the chart/page should still work. I'll grab a screenshot and post.

2) If you get the 2 point as close to perfect as your patience will allow, when you switch to the 20 point and run a scan you will see really nice flat < 2% delta error reading with usually only 2-3 points to adjust. For sure, I always adjust the 100 IRE to set the reference white, and if anything else is glaring, I'll go after it. Try that approach, I think you will be pleased with the results.

LG actually explained what is happening. But it’s divided whether people like those changes. Highlights are still searingly bright.

yeah, not for my E6! D-NICE actually did my E6 in main living area but got a 55" B7A for another room. I would have started with ISF Dark and turned off all the extras stuff. So maybe just starting at this for basic until I get a bunch of hours and get it calibrated one day...

SDR Settings
SDR Picture Mode: “ISF Expert (Dark Room)” Picture Mode
Energy Saving: Off

BASIC SETTINGS:
OLED LIGHT: 48
Contrast: 85
Brightness: 50
H Sharpness: 0
V Sharpness: 0
Color: 50 (start at 46 per D-NICE)
Tint: 0

EXPERT CONTROLS
Dynamic Contrast: Off
Super Resolution: Off
Color Gamut: Auto (Extended per D-NICE)
Edge Enhancer: Off
Color Filter: Off
Gamma: 2.2 (or BT since I only have 1 east/west facing window, I can control most daylight)

WHITE BALANCE
Color Temperature: Warm2
Method: 2 Points
High - R: -1, G: -6, B: -4
Low - R: -3, G: -3, B: -3

PICTURE OPTIONS
Noise Reduction : Off
MPEG Noise Reduction: Off
Black Level: Low
Real Cinema: On ( Default - greyed out )
Motion Eye Care: Off
TrueMotion: Off

Question is, if I'm not messing with CMS and other color stuff (I don't have equipment), should I even mess with WHITE BALANCE?

Hello Guys,

Just a quick question to all of you out there that are owners of 2017 LG OLED 65C7P TV. I just got it myself and I am trying to figure it out all the settings, sound options etc... I have to say, it is all overwhelming so I need your trusted advice.

1) Can someone recommend or point me in the right direction to get good settings for this TV. I have already experimented with ISF Expert Bright and Dark Room Modes Settings but I was wondering if there are settings out there that allow me to keep perfect blacks but also allow for some "pop" in colours/vibrance etc... I find that ISF Expert Dark/Bright Room setting is pretty good but a bit on the dark side so I am wondering if happy balance can be achieved with some additional settings for me. Can these setting be tweaked and also how are they different than the new technicolor Expert mode?

2) ARC and Dolby Vision/Atmos issues/settings - I now have TV and sound system that supports Dolby Vision/Dolby Atmos and when I play "Punisher" via native Netflix app on LG TV which has both Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos.
I get the logo displayed on the LG TV that indicates that Dolby Vision is passed through my reciever (Denon AVR-X3400H) however, I don't get Dolby Atmos logo displayed along when playing "Punisher" yet my Denon receiver is displaying that is playing Dolby Digital+ sound. Is that normal or should I get Dolby Atmos logos displayed on LG TV (along with DV logo) and or my Denon Receievr ? I am connected to ARC HDMI ports on LG OLED 65C7 which is HDMI 2 to monitor out (ARC) on Denon receiver ? Should I change any other settings with regards to sound ? Curious enough if I switch Sound Out on LG OLED TV to be internal TV speakers, the Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos are displayed on TV together as soon as I start playing "Punisher"

Any help would be greatly appreciated?

Regards,
N.

Why not? There was a guy who put them into his Sony A1E and he loved them

I joined the club. I purchased a 65" C7 yesterday, but won't be receiving it until November 25. The B7 was the same price so I went with the C7. I was always impressed checking out the C7 whenever I was in Best Buy. I knew that was the TV to buy. The price dropped low enough for me to take the plunge. I currently have a Sony KDL-65W850a which has served its purpose, and actually has a nice picture. The KDL-65W850A isn't 4K. I may keep it for my 3D titles, or go projector in another room. I have a ton of 3D titles.

You are partially right and on the right track but i'll explain after the new posts. Also the gamma curve is critical. I hope you have it. If not, at some point you need to do that scan. Yes if you bring up that calman session, right click on the RGB balance, go to properties then select auto.
