Got shown the SW out port on the back of a 65» W7 sound bar from my fave tv shop, its a standard regular SW phono out socket.

Find it Odd nobody posted it has that on its back ? or if its only a EU feature not a USA one?

The Atmos sound bar made more sense to me with that SW out to add a seperate sub for the low end.

My W7 doesn't have this audio out port seen above HDMI #3 . Apparently some W7 sold somewhere does.

The EU model (W7V I believe) has a headphone jack that the W7P does not get, as well as the ability to do recording/time shifting that W7P also does not get.

The built in timeshift is a neat feature.

For sound, I would have thought a lot of people used an external AVR with better speakers, but I may be overestimating how popular that is.

For what it's worth, Sony did include the headphone jack/sub output on the A1E in north america (but no time shift feature of course) unlike LG. I have no idea why LG left that out on all the models.

Don't understand why it is specified the cable is not certified for in-wall installation if it is protected in a sleeve.
BTW what is the size of this connector ? cannot find this info nowhere.

If he has it attached like in that video I would figure it comes in the original box no?

Where else would he have gotten it?

I have only seen people mention they cannot get it separately.



Thanks.

From what I read, it would have had to be much thicker to be certified to run in wall. However if the installer installs the correct kind of conduit in the wall, then it is allowed to run through that, which is what you should of course be doing anyhow. LG seems to say that any professional installer should know how to run it through the wall to code and anyone else should just leave it outside the wall and at least then it is as thin as they could make it.

Hey guys.. with the latest update, the W7 get the Technicolor Expert picture mode.

It's available for SDR and HDR10 content.

Technicolor is the world leader in color image sciences.

I highly suggest checking it out when you get the 04.70.07 firmware update.

Because LG engineers had a brain fart. They have openly admitted to this oversight and it is supposed to be corrected with the next gen.

Firmware version 4.70.07 update is avail.

Not sure what it fixes or adds as LG doesn't submit a changelog unless someone knows where to view that?


Edit:

What did you expect they’ve been releasing the same problematic panels every year with the dreadful uniformity and banding and tinting.and that couldn’t rectify that.

not sure if it's 100% gone but after this fw 4.70.07 update last night I haven't heard that slight crackle/pop in the audio, I hope its gone for good so annoying.

My 65W7P came with an extension cable. I thought everyone else's did also. I should consider myself lucky.

does the WiFi on this TV support MU-MIMO? this would only help in a multi device setup 3 on each WiFi, yes I know.

My issue is;
I have the Asus AC86U router and I did a test as I was getting buffering using 5G when playing a 4k stream from my desktop PC hooked to the router by LAN, and the TV to the router by it's WiFi, but if I hook the TV to the router by LAN then no buffering. I have the router close by going through 1 wooden wall. I would think that it shouldn't be an issue.
When I did this test I made sure the TV was the only device connected using the WiFi signal on the network. and nothing was using the LAN side either.

I'm going to try the Asus AC5300 and see what happens but I don't think it will make a diff.

MU-MIMO only works if the devices are in different directions from the AP. All devices in the same direction have to share just as they always did with SU-MIMO. And most likely the TV does not support it (not too much does yet).

How do I pause a painting in the art gallery? Some of the Picssso pictures look as if they are real on the screen. However it keeps filtering through, won’t let me pick a painting and let it stay on screen for more than 5 seconds? Does anyone know how to pick one and let it stay?

I would be surprised if that can be disabled. If so, it would probably activate the screensaver after approximately a minute on-screen.

John Lewis are offering big discounts for the OLED65W7 in their Black Friday Sale. It’s on sale for £4,500 reduced from £7,000.

I hadn’t really considered this model mainly because of the price but it now looks attractive apart from the sound bar which I don’t want.

I’d like to mount the TV to the wall and run the cable through the wall to the sound bar/media unit in another room, hidden in a cabinet of some sort.

Some questions please:

Can I disable the silly motorised speakers?

Does the sound bar/media unit get hot? Would it be OK in a wooden cabinet if I prove some ventilation.

Where is the Infra Red sensor? In the panel or in the sound bar?

Is there any word of a 2018 model with a compact media unit and no speakers for us enthusiasts?

You will not be disappointed. We’re sitting 8ft from screen to eyes. It’s amazing how you get absorbed into the movie or any other action. Best move we made getting a 77 incher
