OLED + 4K/HDR steaming + blue ray
Note: I love this forum, but I made this topic new because it is generic to all OLED TVs in my opinion. But was asked to repost in my brand of tv. I think others, of different brands and models will miss out. Can’t say I agree with this policy.
Anyway, I’ve had my LG OLED for about 2 months now. I’m quite pleased with it and a bit confused. I don’t have a 4K/HDR disk player, so I can’t test it’s full capabilities.
I am so pleased on the 4K upscaling and HDR mode of the LG OLED tv. It makes my Blue a Ray discs look amazing. I watched black panther last night and was in heaven. All my other blue rays look amazing. The LG upscale and HDR mode even make SD discs look great. (As great as they can be).
The confusion comes from streaming 4K/HDR/Dolby Vision titles. No doubt they look amazing compared to normal HD streaming and my Directv in HD. Again, the LG OLED is amazing. But even though the tv streaming and my Roku streaming 4K/HDR/Dolby Vision looks amazing, it doesn’t look much better, if at all, to my Blue Ray being upscaled and with HDR mode with the LG OLED. I can only imagine what a true 4K/HDR/Dolby Vision dvd would look like.
I know there is loss on streaming. Even though I have excellent internet with very low latency, I know there’s loss. I guess I just expected 4K/HDR/Dolby Vision, even streaming, to blow blue ray out of the water. But again, it’s probably that the LG OLED tv is great at upscaling and HDR mode for the blue ray. Don’t get me wrong. The streaming 4K/HDR/Dolby Vision is excellent, and probably better than the upscaled blue ray in HDR mode, I just expected a major difference. I really didn’t want to upgrade to a 4K/HDR/Dolby Vision disc player yet, but I would be curious. I think my next upgrade with be for audio. Going from my 5.1 to an Atmos/DTS-X avr first.
Oh well, I’m definitely enjoying the tv and UHD/HDR/Dolby Vision along with upscaled blue ray. That’s all that matters.
