[QUOTE=Claudiu Gardelli;56035302]I think the EU fw version is the same as the AU version though they don't mention anything about this matter. Anyways, the TV models are different too, the EU model is C7V, and the AU model is C7P.
I installed the AU fw (OLED55C7P) on an EU model (OLED55C7V), and it's working perfectly... By the time I installed it the EU version was very outdated, like 2-3 months with no updates.

PS: the KR/US firmware doesn't work on my TV.[/QUOTE
Same here I have used the UK firmware on my AU model and the tv accepts it without any problems.

I'm going to order that Monoprice cable you mention, too. If THAT works for $11, I'll be most happy to give Best Buy back this $70 one.
Best Buy LOVES impatient customers willing to pay $70 for a Premium quality HDMI cable.

There's been some discussion of "snake oil" in this thread lately. I think $70 for an 8-foot cable qualifies as snake oil.

Does banding show up on your TV is off? Because tonight I noticed that there look like some streaks on the screen so I try wiping them off only to realize that it was part of the screen. It has a green tinge I think because the sun is shining off of it. Now that the sun is gone I cannot notice it but I think that the luminance of the sun was bringing out the banding while the TV was off. Does this make any sense? If you look at the picture you can see what looks like tire track marks that are green.

I have a slight problem.. So I think the HDMI 2 port(ARC) has gone bad on my TV....I cannot get a video or audio signal out of that port, from multiple sources, Directv, ATV, PS4...etc... Tried switching cable....No luck..I tested port 1 and 3 and everything works fine...except app audio from TV of course..

SO, I use ARC port because I need audio from internal apps to go to my AVR....

Can I just plug HDMI into 1 or 3 and run optical cable from TV on wall back down into the Denon? I have always used ARC so for a quick fix can I just pick one at BB....any variance in quality??
Will I lose any performance from the TV in my current setup having to use HDMI 1 or 3 along with the optical cable....Any decrease in audio quality/capability vs ARC?
I understand going with optical I will lose CEC function which is fine because I use a Harmony....(even though I will have to reprogram now)

Lastly, I get 4K with DTV on monday....I assume all the ports on the LG support 4K right?

Oh, and do I contact LG about looking at the ARC port....TV is 6 months old.

Please give me your opinions or ask if you need more info....

Thanks!

Can anyone help please?

Using the digital output you will lose atmos if you’re even equipped for that. Otherwise yea just use one of your other inputs. I would contact lg customer service if it’s only 6months old. They’re pretty good about sending techs out to fix problems

There have been reports of discoloration from direct sunlight hitting the TV for extended periods of time. What many see when 1st inspecting is the “wavy” nature of the AR filter on the TV.

You can go to sam's or costco, and for $19.99 you can get a 2-Pack of 9 foot long HDMI cables that are High Speed / 18gbps, and I guarantee you they will be just as good as the $70 one you bought at best buy. And if anyone says differently, then they have proven that they don't know or understand digital 1's and 0's.

The ONLY REASON cables cost more than $10 a piece, is because most people don't know, and the retailers can take advantage of them.

Oh, and if you didn't know by now...... There's NO SUCH THING as an "High Definition HD Antenna" for over the air broadcasts. The SAME Rabbit ears your grandparents used when you were a kid, will still work. (yes, there have been some advances in OTA antenna, like built in amplifiers and such. Simply pointing out, there is NOTHING SPECIAL about an antenna that is "HIGH DEFINITION - HD". It doesn't exit. Antennas are simply a piece of metal, that resonates at a specific frequency. What INFORMATION (Analog, Digital, SD, HD, etc.) is riding that frequency, is totally irrelevant.

So take that best buy cable back to that rip off retailer, and go to walmart, target, sams, costco, online, or any place, and buy a high speed HDMI cable for around $10. The only differences you'll find in the cables, is possibly their outer material. Some are more flexible; some more rigid, some have 90 degree bends on the hdmi connector, some are straight, etc.... Find a cable that fits your needs, looks sturdy enough for your environment, and can do 18gbps. (Pretty much ALL new hdmi cables). If you pay more than $10 a piece, you're being ripped off. Even the 2 for $19.99 I bought for convenience. You can get a 10 footer at walmart for $5-$6.

If you want to play it safe, buy a premium certified HDMI cable. https://www.hdmi.org/manufacturer/premiumcable/faq.aspx If memory serves, the 2 for $20 cables at Costco claim 18 Gbps, but they aren't certified. They may well work perfectly. If not, Costco has a liberal return policy.

Monoprice sells certified cable cheaply. Blue Jeans is respected, if a bit more expensive. Monster is often sneered at. Audioquest cables cover a large range, from expensive to implausible. (Amazon sells a 1m Audioquest Diamond cable for about $1k. Includes a specially trained Maxwell's Demon to shepherd the electrons through the wires.)

Some of the old "high speed" cables are rated for 10.2 Mbps. They may not cut it for some signals.

I once used a 6' Amazon Basic cable to connect a Samsung K8500 UHD player to a 4k TV (Samsung KS8000). It worked well. When I added a 4k AVR (Yamaha TSR-5810) and a second cable to the chain, I got no signal from the player. When I replaced the Amazon Basics cables with a couple of non-certified 27 Gbps from Omars (still only $8 each from Amazon), everything has been OK since.

Unfortunately, all HDMI cables basically have the same electrical connections. There is no way to distinguish an inadequate one from a good one by eye.

Almost any place such as walmart, target, sams, costco, you name it, has a decent return policy.

You only need 24 hours (Actually about 1 hour) to determine if it works or not. I don't need a "Certified Cable". Just another reason to charge more.

I use the "Pregnancy Theory". There's no Kind of; Sort of; "You Are Pregnant...... or you're NOT". The cable "WORKS"...... or it "Doesn't. Connect it to your device and try it. If it doesn't work, take it back the next day.

Uh-huh but there are certain signals that may not pass through cheap cables while it may appear to work on first test. Try passing 4k 4:4:4 HDR through it or 4k 60HZ HDR and you may hit the limits and get drop outs and sync issues that don't appear at first. This is why certified cables are recommended, the chances of these signals not working is very low.

Take it back the next day? How long have you been retired?

I mentioned the Monoprice certified cable because it's cheap (<$10US for many lengths) and popular here. You won't find it at Costco or Walmart, though.

I prefer to buy cables online. The choices are better than what I can find locally. Cables also tend to be among the most overpriced tech in retail stores.

Quick question : I will soon be equipped with Dolby Atmos setup.
How do I pass Dolby Atmos sound from the Netflix and YouTube tv apps ? Through hdmi arc ?
I thought arc didn’t carry over lossless sound ?

Thank you for your answers. This is something that left me wondering. How can I watch those Netflix shows in Dolby Atmos, using the tv app and my sound setup / avr ? How can I use the YouTube demos for Dolby Atmos ?

Thanks !!

Thank you for your answers. This is something that left me wondering. How can I watch those Netflix shows in Dolby Atmos, using the tv app and my sound setup / avr ? How can I use the YouTube demos for Dolby Atmos ?

Thanks !!
The Atmos from Blu-Ray discs is lossless TrueHD. The Atmos from Netflix and Vudu is not lossless and is sent in a Dolby Digital Plus format. Atmos can be sent in either format. You simply use ARC from the TV. YouTube does not support Atmos.

Si what is the point of Netflix sending atmos if you cannot use it in atmos ?
Same question for all the atmos demos available on YouTube ?

If I want to demo my new atmos setup with Netflix and YouTube , will it work with the native apps ? Will I hear the atmos

If you were to stream Netflix thru say your 4k audio video receiver, then you could experience Netflix in atmos, albeit with lossy audio.

Granted that lossy audio for atmos is not as good as lossless, but it is still atmos.

If you want to best demo your atmos setup, buy a physical disc with atmos, play it thru your atmos equipped avr.

Netflix atmos thru the C7's speakers or via a soundbar is not going to be a full representation of how good atmos can sound.

I have a slight problem.. So I think the HDMI 2 port(ARC) has gone bad on my TV....I cannot get a video or audio signal out of that port, from multiple sources, Directv, ATV, PS4...etc... Tried switching cable....No luck..I tested port 1 and 3 and everything works fine...except app audio from TV of course..

SO, I use ARC port because I need audio from internal apps to go to my AVR....

Can I just plug HDMI into 1 or 3 and run optical cable from TV on wall back down into the Denon? I have always used ARC so for a quick fix can I just pick one at BB....any variance in quality??
Will I lose any performance from the TV in my current setup having to use HDMI 1 or 3 along with the optical cable....Any decrease in audio quality/capability vs ARC?
I understand going with optical I will lose CEC function which is fine because I use a Harmony....(even though I will have to reprogram now)

Lastly, I get 4K with DTV on monday....I assume all the ports on the LG support 4K right?

Oh, and do I contact LG about looking at the ARC port....TV is 6 months old.

Please give me your opinions or ask if you need more info....

Thanks!
Someone has already posted that you will get DD through the optical connection but not DD+. In terms of 4K all of the HDMI ports on the TV support 4K HDR (all flavours). You need will need to turn on HDMI Ultra HD Deep Color in the General settings for each port if you want HDR to work. You can only do this when the HDMI port is active.

When you say you cannot get a video or audio signal do you mean an audio signal through the TV speakers or the Denon when playing content routed into the Denon or do you mean no audio signal from the TV when playing TV apps (i.e. only a lack of audio through ARC)? It is possible that with that information someone here might make some suggestions that could assist you. I would have suspected a cable but you have already tried changing out cable. I had a problem with a cable not passing ARC correctly but the video was fine (including passing DV in 4K). When I substituted an Audioquest Forest cable the problem went away permanently (I wouldn't recommend the Audioquest cables as they are just too expensive but they were supplied by the dealer when my old Plasma was installed).

I might try disconnecting all the cables to the Denon and the LG and also disconnecting the power from both for 30 seconds, then reconnect everything and see if that solves the problem. If that doesn't work, then I might be inclined to try a reset to initial settings on the LG and a similar factory reset on the Denon to see if that corrects the problem. You might want to take pictures of your various settings screens on your phone first so that you can quickly input them again after the resets. Make sure that you turn on Deep colour (each input when active) and Simplink on the LG and whatever the setting is on the Denon to get ARC to work.

Good luck.

Thank you for all that information....No video/audio through Denon....everything works as it should through the TV if I take the Denon out of the equation..

You misunderstand. Atmos is extra metadata sent in the audio stream. It is supported in both TrueHD(lossless) and Dolby Digital Plus(lossy). You can send Atmos either way. Streaming services use Dolby digital plus and discs use truehd. This is to conserve bandwidth. Netflix and Vudu both support atmos. You will hear atmos audio from those two apps via ARC. Vudu has atmos demos on there for free. YouTube does not support atmos audio.

Can I make this better by running through color slides (like we used to do to "break in" plasmas)? This banding is driving me bonkers (as you can tell by the fact that I'm on my 3rd one), so while I'll live with it if I have to, I want to do everything I can do to minimize it.

The same goes with the TV.

Try one of these cables: http://www.avprostore.com/Bullet-Tra...-bt01-auhd.htm

Each cable is individually tested and serialized. ( Yes, that's right - each cable gets its own serial number ).
I guess it's worth a try, but I'm currently using the highly rated Monoprice cables that everyone raves about here.

As long as they are the "premium" rated cables, you are right, that is not the issue......
