If this doesn't help, what are the details of the source material? Can you view that same content on the internal app to see if there is a difference?
Ok, I've tried your settings. It's better, I think it's bearable to watch. Watched House of Cards last night, and didnt notice a lot of banding.
As for the source, I've tried internal Netflix app and one on my Shield, same story.

Run the manual pixel refresher if you haven't. If that doesn't improve it, you should think about return or exchange.
I've tried running manual pixel refresher, but nothing happened, no improvement. As for returning it, that is a no go, I can only try to exchange it.
Will run it for 100-150 more hours, and then I will try and exchange it.

Nope, just the standard settings. Don't know where that option is. lol

If it has been that long and you see noticeable banding in normal content and dark scenes, I would try to exchange it in hopes for a better panel. I don't think it will get any better with time at this point.
Your brightness setting is fine. Most keep OLED light lower than that (30-35 and rtings.com recommends even less than that), but if you have a bright or sunlit room you might have to keep it high. Again that is a personal preference, but supposedly it is better to keep it low for OLED longevity. Works for me because I watch in a dark room and 30 is more than enough for me and also doesn't fry my retina.
I've tried seetings form
, and it looks better now. So i will try your recommendations and see how it goes.
I usually watch it during night, dark room. Wife is watching through the day, but she doesn't notice anything on SD cable, so OLED light will be at 35 for now.
If it doesn't get any better in the next 10days, I will try and exchange the tv. Tnx
