my arc just stopped working. b7a to a denon x4300h. have been watching tv and everything was working since day one. today was watching netflix on my lg up970 and switched to watch some olympics and i'm not getting any audio signal from the tv. normally on my receiver my channels would be lit on the right hand side but now it's blank. i tried turning arc on and off on both the tv and the receiver but no dice. any tips? Thanks everyone.

I'm a little late, but how are people watching the olympics in 4K/HLG?

Plasma's were top dog for there time just like OLED is for their time Glad the Z9D's are around too.....Hats off to those

Chalk me up as another guy who prefers BT.1886/2.4 for the same reason, but I switch it to 2.2 for daylight or lights-on viewing because that makes it easier to see darker details. Sometimes I get lazy and just keep it at BT.1886. I do all of my critical viewing with shades drawn or at night with bias lighting, so ultimately I don't really care about daylight or lights-on PQ.

If a guy really cared about seeing the best picture possible, he would ideally be watching his "important stuff" in as dark of a room as possible. I realize that not everyone can watch in very dim or dark conditions, but for me, it's usually all or nothing: I watch my important stuff in the near-dark, but if I can't, then I don't care how the picture looks.

Best part of a panel swap is you're basically getting a brand new TV but the ported electronics from your current set retain all the settings you've already dialed in.

Rest easy.
Thanks. I'll let them do their thing and see how it goes.

I have DirecTV 4K which is now running HLG HDR on their 4K channels ( all three of them - LOL ), and I also understand that Xfinity may have some 4K HLG offerings. They don't run ads on these broadcasts, so in between events you might see the attached. The "Olympic Broadcasting System"!

Aw, I unfortunately do not have DirecTV 4K. I just signed up for DirecTV NOW, so is 4K available through that?

Gamma basically sets the stimulus level that determines when to bring the picture out of black. The general rule is that the brighter the viewing environment, the lower the gamma setting and vice versa. For example, with gamma set to 1.8, the really low luminance elements in a picture will be "brightened" earlier which is what you would want in a bright room. Gamma 2.2 is considered the "middle" setting for most lighting conditions within the two extremes. Some people will adjust the brightness, OLED LIGHT and gamma to squeeze as much dark detail as they can. If it looks good, and the whites aren't getting clipped then enjoy.

Did it cost extra to add 4k? Is new equipment from DirecTV required?

We can't be sure at this stage but it does sound like a cable issue. I would try to get hold of a Premium Certified High Speed cable of shortish length (about 2 meters) and give that a try. HDMI cables can be very fickle things and not all perform as claimed even if they seem of good quality. I bought mine off eBay so you could perhaps look there or try to buy direct from Monoprice or Blue Jean Cables in the States.
Good luck.

but 4k, bigger screen, infinite contrast and less stress for eyes makes oled the next logical change.

[a little ontopic] i couldn't sense a great difference between dd+ and truehd, for example in GOT blurays, using some marantz AVR and HECO speakers. but 20 years ago i could say which is a cd source or a [email protected] maybe it's the aging

With DISH TV, if you have a Hopper 3 and already have a certain program package there wasn't any cost that I know of.

There is no difference that would be down to DD+ vs TrueHD. 640 kbps für 6 channels (where one is limited to 120Hz). That would be around 256 kbps per 2 channels which will be enough. However, I found out that movies from streaming services are delivered with a mix that show less dynamic rang in comparison to BD or UHD BD (or even DVD). This holds even when you test against a BD with plain DD. Obviously the mastering for streaming services inculdes dynamic range compression of the soundtrack which is bad.

I started playing shadow of the colossus for PS4 Pro. It’s in 4K HDR and looks amazing. However, it’s the first time I’ve really been able to notice very apparent black banding in darker parts of the game. Anyone have any idea why this might be? Haven’t seen it anywhere else.

yes, SOtC use a lot of grey or near black to create the atmosphere of the game, you will se banding, depends of the panel also.

btw, are you using the right settings for HDR?(for example PC Input is a NO NO with HDR Sources) l notice in some forums that people who complains about banding normally use incorrect HDR settings, PC Mode + HDR will display wrong levels, highlights the banding and you will get wrong colours.

ok, I know that most have the idea that the technicolor mode and the ISF are exactly the same, but if you dedicate a little to see the patterns, especially the brightness, you will notice that the technicolor mode reveals a lot of black details that in ISF Dark are much harder to see.

Technicolor is really a more dedicated mode than the others, it shows that LG wanted to leave it perfect.

what bothers me is that you can not use the technicolor mode in PC mode (force the colors to wide) for the best input lag.

Does anyone know how much input lag has the TV in HDMI Input, technicolor mode, real cinema off and trumotion off?

Good luck.
Just thought I'd throw in this quote from Bob Pariseau over on the Oppo threads for anyone having HDMI issues on their LG B7-C7. This is more about HDMI cable length than what they're plugged in to, but it may be of some benefit here. Bob's a great guy and knows his stuff if you're not familiar with his posts. I realize that some of you have no choice for cable length, but have a read anyway:

Cable boxes, even the fancy ones, are notorious for poor implementations of HDMI.

Often you can clear up a faulty HDMI handshake by forcing a new one. In the cable box you could do this by changing it to a different output Resolution and back. In the OPPO you can do it by changing its Input selection to Blu-Ray Player and then back to HDMI Input. One or the other of those may get you to good video.

Personally, I consider it something of a miracle that HDMI ever works.

-------------------------------------------

ETA: Here's another trick worth knowing: Don't use an HDMI cable shorter than 6 feet (2 meters) between any two devices!

The electronics at either end of the cable try to correct for the expected degradation of the HDMI signal as it travels along the cable. This "equalization" has to make assumptions about how much correction is needed. And that basically means, picking a "typical" cable length to correct for.

And the answer they picked was 6 feet.

Now, it is commonly accepted that long HDMI cables may cause problems. What people don't realize is that short cables may also cause problems. Just as with long cables, using a particular, short cable between any two given devices MAY work problem free.

But to keep The Odds Ever in Your Favor, it is wise to never use HDMI cables shorter than 6 foot length to connect between devices that happen to be close together. Note that this is VERY DIFFERENT from the advice given to folks picking Analog audio interconnect cables. For cables like those, shorter is always better. But for HDMI? Not so much.

And as always these days, if you are buying an HDMI cable for ANY purpose, you should be sure to get one labeled as HDMI Ultra HD Premium Certified. That's the latest design and testing standard from the brainiacs at HDMI.ORG, and SURELY they've gotten it right THIS time! Such cables do not need to be expensive. Both Monoprice and Blue Jeans Cable offer reasonably priced cables like this, for example.

After reading so much about the Technicolor update I decided to see what all the hype was about. I took 2 screenshots in game mode and 2 in technicolor while watching the Olympic Games on the 4K DirecTV channel 106. I feel the image was much more life like.



What do you think?

This makes a lot of sense considering I don't view myself as someone who can discern between lossy and lossless, but disc vs streaming always sounded like night and day difference.

But to keep The Odds Ever in Your Favor, it is wise to never use HDMI cables shorter than 6 foot length to connect between devices that happen to be close together. Note that this is VERY DIFFERENT from the advice given to folks picking Analog audio interconnect cables. For cables like those, shorter is always better. But for HDMI? Not so much.

And as always these days, if you are buying an HDMI cable for ANY purpose, you should be sure to get one labeled as HDMI Ultra HD Premium Certified. That's the latest design and testing standard from the brainiacs at HDMI.ORG, and SURELY they've gotten it right THIS time! Such cables do not need to be expensive. Both Monoprice and Blue Jeans Cable offer reasonably priced cables like this, for example.

I would think the shorter the HDMI cable the better. I wonder how close Monoprice and Blue Jean Cable are to providing the new Ultra High speed cables! I am going to wait for them.

Can't really tell. What your camera can capture is completely different from what you're seeing.

Please do elaborate on getting 4K HDR access via DirecTV NOW. I would really love to see some Olympics coverage in 4K HDR but I'm not gonna sign up with any cable/sat services for 1 to 2 years for it.

The 4K service is free with my package which is two tiers above the basic. It might be with free with every package. You need to have at least an HR54 DirecTV Genie box, and a TV that conforms to the RVU alliance. LG is part of this alliance so no problem there. If your TV is not part of the RVU alliance ( Vizio ), then you would also need a C61K client box. That will run around $100.

I would go to www.directv.com to get more details. DirecTV is really promoting their 4K/HDR offerings, and will be adding more channels moving forward.
