Spoiled by my 65" OLED no doubt. I rented I, Tonya (amazing movie) last night for $1.99. Equally as entertaining and much cheaper than if I had saw it in theater 3 months ago.

Man that's making me think of my younger days of working at video stores. It was so long ago we even had a Laserdisc section.

The television screen is the retina of the mind's eye.

Wow! I cannot even recall the last time I went to a theater, so it's been a long time. You can bet the farm that it will be even longer before I return, given the way things work today.

With my 65C7P I am entertained, no matter what I wear, or don't wear.

As has been noted, the head is right down the hall, and my beverage is within reach. If there's more to wish for, within reason, I dunno what it would be.

Angry Commercials Annoying Sound

I have a problem with my LG OLED65C7P TV's sound. When a commercial is played, the sound volume increases by about 50% which is unbearable. Is there any setting of change I can make to eliminate this? Thanks.

I still like going to a movie on occasion. Especially to avoid spoilers. Last movie was The Last Jedi. Before that Blade Runner 2049.

Have not gone this year though. Probably Solo: A Star Wars Story. That will be May 25th. And this summer Incredibles 2.

Plus, no cell phones, munching, crunching, gabbing, being stepped on..................... Wow this thread could go quite a way with what you won't miss not going to the theater. But I do miss the drive-in circa 1960.

I haven't been to the movies since I got the C7, but this past Saturday I went to watch A Quiet Place. I can't recommend that movie enough.

It is a whole new game at the movie theater. For all of us who are tired of going to the movies with disrespectful audience, this is a MUST. It would be impossible to reproduce the experience at home, and I am not talking about picture quality.

Sorry for the off-topic.

I have to admit that I've not seen any ill effects from doing that for nearly 80 years. But then different strokes for different folks.
There's value in seeing movies in theaters for the big screen (there's no substitute for size) and to take part in the discussion. But after the theatrical release, it hardly matters if you see a movie 4 vs 6 vs 8 months later.

Ready player one is definitely worth seeing but I will say this, it has some incredible highlights and color so if you wait for the home release you will get a better experience than the theater.

In terms of PQ I agree but not about sound.. can’t compete.

The opening scene (the race) of Ready player one is absolutely fantastic. The power of the sound is just incredible. Kong smashing everything, damn ! I was blown away.

I know that I won’t experience that on my home theater although the PQ will be superior.

It works in technicolor, just make sure DC is set to low.

Movie Gallery, the reason I became a Netflix subscriber and never looked back at video rental stores. In my area, they were great until they weren't. They were purchased by some other company and I asked if they were going to change their prices and specials. No. Oh, no. Same ole Movie Gallery you know and love. Well, that didn't take long to change. That was over fifteen years ago.

We have Family Video in my area and I considered getting a membership for UHD Blu-ray rentals, but having tried VUDU, I feel I don't have a need. As I said, the quality was very good. For less than it would have cost me to buy one movie on disc, I watched five films. It would have cost a tremendous amount of money to own them on disc, and most of them I would not care to buy and re-watch anyway. I had waited for sales, but the prices had been holding firm, and the rental prices just couldn't be beat.

I have no doubt... there's a reason I never bought an LCD and went straight to OLED.... and every time I go to my brother's place and look at his $399 55" 4K TCL with light bleeding in all 4 corners and into the black bars... well...

I bite my tongue so I don't hurt his feelings.

That's too funny.

I am sure he has been over to your place. What does he say when he sees an OLED in action?

How can he go back and watch that light bleed...........

For those of us who have OLED's.............man, are we sure spoiled.

Hard as it is to believe, there are some people who just don't see what we see and/or just don't care. And this is nothing new. I remember seeing color CRTs in people's homes with the most horrendous, oversaturated, poorly adjusted pictures. Both then and now, I wonder how people can possibly bear looking at that!

I've got almost 7000 digital movies; all from discs (70% blue-ray, the rest DVD). I also use Netflix, HBO and Amazon for streaming. After these streaming services got popular I have actually received over 5000+ dvd and blurays from friends and family. No one uses physical media anymore. I have stored them all on NAS-boxes (got 264TB of storage currently). And all the discs are stored safely away.

Its good to see I'm not the only one preferring higher quality (I always transfer video and audio stream from bluray without any loss in quality with DTS:X/Atmos/TrueHD or DTS-HD.MA audiostream).

Depends on your setup. I saw it in Dolby cinema and I think the subs go down to 30hz. I can go down to 15hz in my game room with room gain. Dunno if that will make a difference.

I would try different HDMI cables, preferably Premium High Speed HDMI Cables.
Update: I did purchase premium HDMI cables. At first, it seemed to help however after a few weeks I noticed I still had issues with channels not coming in. So then I tried a different HDMI input. Again, this seemed to help initially, but in recent days I've noticed channels not coming in more frequently, and even on channels that do come in there has been an increase in audio dropouts.

Any other suggestions?

It was from VUDU... with a discount code from an email they sent me. Like I said upthread I think streaming rentals are a bit high priced and could come down to the $3 and $4 range IMO. I'd surely rent a lot more than I do. Some of the $7.99 UHD rentals I've seen I'm like "well hell, I'll just buy the disc for $20" and I've done that a lot.

Just ordered the I, Tonya blue ray... the rental was to confirm it was worth it... and IMO it is. Great movie.

I am sure he has been over to your place. What does he say when he sees an OLED in action?

How can he go back and watch that light bleed...........

For those of us who have OLED's.............man, are we sure spoiled.

He falls into the "doesn't care" category. He's more into gaming (which that TV is good for) and doesn't care a whole lot about movies. I asked him what he thought about OLED and he said it was fantastic but out of his price range.

I have an overpriced Nordost Heimdall 2 HDMI cable (which I got really cheap); works flawlessly on everything I throw at the B7 (UHD Dolby Vision, UHD 4:4:4, HDR etc). I also have a cheap no-name HDMI 2.0b compliant cable (supports high speed); also works without any issues. Both are 5 meters.

My goal was to test if there were any difference between a high-end cable compared to a cheap one. Have not tested regarding audio, but for video they are identical (connected both to my Marantz AV8802a and connected them to HDMI 1 + HDMI 2 on B7; same source....

I think those reading this question assumed the question related to using active HDR on HDR content (not DV). The question appeared to be whether active HDR was available in Technicolor Expert mode for HDR content. The answer was that it was available in that mode. Very few cable broadcasts, if any, are in HDR so you would be using the Technicolor Expert mode for SDR broadcasts (which is actually a different picture mode than Technicolor Expert for HDR) and you would set the DC to off for SDR content or broadcasts. So when you are watching an SDR program the DC would be set to off and when watching and HDR program (such as on Amazon) it would be set to "low". Once this is properly set up in both picture modes it will change to the correct setting when you watch either SDR or HDR content. I hope that helps and I also hope I understood your comment correctly.
