Oh yeah, I was really surprised at that tracking shot too. Goliath on Amazon HDR has some brutal ones. (I tend to keep TruMotion off.)

Quick question guys (probably it was answered a million times): What presets do you use for both SDR and HDR? Do you use ISF Dark/Bright or technicolor? Since I can't find anyone trustworthy to do a pro calibration around here, I'll stick to the out of the box presets for the moment and I'd like to know which one is the most accurate.

@Cleveland Plasma trust me the only reason why ill most likely not get my set calibrated is because of my location.

I use technicolor on both SDR and HDR, for DV I use cinema user.

Thanks, I think so too.

As far as deals go, I am too concerned about the apparent panel lottery for uniformity to risk buying online. I realize I will pay a premium for purchasing from BB but being able to swap it out outweighs the cost to me. I am very frugal but for this convenience I am willing to splurge. I can save in other areas like a steep discount on new AVR and Blu Ray player that I already discussed with the assistant manager. So while I love a good deal, I will love a panel with minimal uniformity issues. Otherwise I would buy online. It ticks me off I can't buy confidently from other sources because LG has QC issues.

I went through h*ll with the Vizio in my sig. Luckily I purchased it from Costco. I went through 2 panel changes for severe clouding even though it's a FALD that never showed up on a BB floor. They also screwed up their firmware so badly that they sent a creepy tech out to swap the board as it was the only way to roll back the bad firmware. So tons of customer service calls, photo requirements. Having to ask my neighbor yet again to help me get it mounted. Ugh! It was permanently disconnected from the Internet after that. I don't want to ever go through that again. My pro calibrator was gracious enough to come back out as a favor and was very understanding. I'll be hiring him for my B7.

I might not have "perfection", but what I do have is perfect for me.
Any good calibrator will hear your concerns and mine, who is local, said to live with the settings for a week and if I thought it was too dark for example, he would change it to suit my tastes. After a week, I loved the PQ. Edit: Might be different if you had to schedule him on tour. Luckily for me he's nearby.

Yeah this TV is absolutely sick... I don't know if I'm gonna go for the pro calibration because honestly I just don't see a need. No idea what it costs but I'd guess a lot more than the $100 or so I'd be willing to pay.

My 4K disc library is approaching 50 titles... and some of my favorites are Planet Earth II, Blue Planet II, 3 Billboards, The Revenant, It, The Martian... and the John Wick films.

T2 looks absolutely amazing too... I was shocked at how well the remastering turned out. I'm not seeing any grain on a film that was released in 1991! I'm hoping Cameron's other hits turn out the same.

Yeah I'm running Expert Dark Room for SDR and Cinema User for HDR... basically rtings.com settings tweaked a bit. I've been meaning to check out technicolor and other settings in the FAQ thread but haven't gotten around to it yet. UHD looks so good and if it ain't broke don't fix it ya know?

Still gonna have a look though. I don't have anything against beneficial change.

2. Should I have the UHD BD player connected to the ST300 HDMI In, then HDMI back out to ARC Input 2? Would this improve the sound at all?
I'm not sure if it would improve it... but that's how mine is set up with my SJ9. I was told it is the optimal setup.

Xfinity -> HDMI 1
970 BR player -> SJ9 IN -> SJ9 OUT to HDMI 2 ARC
Apple TV 4K -> HDMI 3
Xbox One X/Nintendo Switch -> HDMI 4

Everything (HDR, DV, Atmos) works great via 970 or internal TV apps with no issues.

Based on my current setup, I just wanted to make sure I take full advantage of what I have to work with.

Your reply does just that. Thanks again.
Yeah I hear ya on that. As I said upthread I chose the soundbar because it works for me and my small condo. When I buy a big house with a dedicated HT room I might rethink it... but for now I'm good. It's very impressive... quality sound/bass that can be heard by the neighbors. Price just dropped too... went back to BB last night and got my $150 price adjustment refund on the TV/soundbar to go with the $50 I got back on the 970 last week. Feb/March turned out to be a really good time to buy.

So I was playing with going to the Korean website to see if I could find the firmware update. I didn't have the direct link, see. Had fun with the translations. First off, the translation for OLED is All Red. Then in the features for this model, it had Time Machine. Don't know what that is

Did you reduce color on the technicolor hdr preset by any chance?

The shelf depth is 15”, but the TV will extend out about halfway. So if you have them extend below, you *could* run into your center overhanging the shelf edge just a little. Just something to keep in mind, but I don’t think you’ll have any problems.
Thanks, that's very helpful. I was leaning with Best Buy because they have the service for assembling the stand and attaching the TV to stand mount. I've never done the latter and this VESA standards are a little confusing because I don't know if 200 by 300 and 300 by 200 in mm are the same thing.

Welcome to our happy club! You'll probably find the manual nearly useless re picture settings. Everything I've learned is from this thread.

Question for @sonoftumble and others who've installed the latest update (Korean website):

1. Were all your picture settings retained?

2. Did you have to make any adjustments to your picture settings following the update?

If the answers are 1. Yes and 2. No, I'll go ahead and install it.

I tried first with all motion processing off. Then, after reading @jbebel 's doc, I turned on RealCinema, which is supposed to help with 24p material, but didn't (though for all I know, the problem is that LG is displaying Netflix at a fixed 60hz rate that cannot be reverse telecined correctly).

ISF is good. Technicolor seems to be best (other than gamma tracking).

Touring calibrators are awesome. I live in a major metro area and still prefer to hit up one of the top touring calibrators (see the thread here on AVS though you have probably seen their names mentioned in this thread or the OLED calibration thread).

Nope. For SDR I reduce the OLED light level to 35, which is close to correct for a moderately lit room. For HDR, I need to do some measurements but as noted, gamma is the one problem area with OOTB box settings. If you look at the before and after measurements in the calibration thread, you'll see that many people had good color space and good color temp tracking OOTB, and that both Brightness (black level) and Contrast (white level) at default in Technicolor were good. But that gamma was not so great.

Will all the women in this thread please raise your hands?

My wife sits on the sofa in our living room with the 65C7P and watches her favorite shows on her iPad. When we first got our TV, and I was being blown away by the PQ, I asked her, "Do you like it?" She answered, "It's OK. I was happy with the old TV." (A 14-year-old 720p Panasonic plasma). But she's happy that it makes me happy.

1. Yes

2. No

Keep in mind that the FW isn't a silver bullet for this DV elevated black's mess. It's just one cog in the wheel. You will see improvements with some titles, and not with others. That's because Dolby also needs to update their title libraries and the playback devices also need to update their firmware.

Still, I'm happy with the limited improvements, and have not experienced any ill effects from going "rogue" with the Korean update.

But what annoys me is all the motion judder. Beginning of the second or third episode of Jessica Jones season two in DV on the built in app, there is a tracking shot across a bridge and it is just a silly amount of judder. The screen is just a shimmering blur of bouncing lines.


That’s a problem for all 24p content on all TVs I’ve ever watched. Even in the theater I see this on panning shots.

I agree it exists to some degree in all sets, but even my 12 year old Vizio LCD in the garage does a better job than this LG. I must have a problem either in my TV settings or in the source material.

If you look at the scene I referenced, it actually looks like a strobe light is going off.

I see that you have a few different displays. Are you seeing about the same amount of judder on all your displays? I'm seeing WAY more on the LG, which is why I think I have something set up wrong.

If you use trumotion you will get artifacts. With it off you get the stuttering picture. Kind of have to take one or the other.

She answered, "It's OK. I was happy with the old TV." (A 14-year-old 720p Panasonic plasma). But she's happy that it makes me happy.
When I first met my now ex, she had a 14" NTSC B&W set that someone left on the curb for trash pick-up. I bought her an HD LED flatscreen... she said she really didn't notice much difference. Goes a long way to explain why she's my ex.

(It must sounds hard to believe, but it is fact. And, no, her name is not 'Helen Keller'.)
