If you don't mind can you please share again what settings you are using for 4k UHD discs.
Thanks for this question because I was about to post a note that will be a part of this response:
I use the stock setting for 4K UHD, untouched. Dynamic Contrast LOW (for Active HDR). Edge Enhancer OFF. Sharpness OFF. TruMotion Custom with DeJudder and DeBlur both on 2.
Here is where I think what I'm seeing and other members are is at an indifference:
The very best 4K UHD player here is the OPPO 203 - I'm not sure what other owners are doing but I'm forcing the 12-bit Color Depth in the OPPO 203, using Source Direct and Custom 4K mode, 4:2:2 color space. I'm doing forced 12 bit color for SDR Blu-ray Discs also (The Avengers, watch that).
Dolby Vision is 12-bit color depth also. HDR10 Discs forced in 12 bit from OPPO in my opinion is superior to DV using Technicolor Expert mode.
I'm on Dawn of the Planet of the Apes now.. and with the configuration above.. there is nothing in the world.. that damn Panasonic, whatever, touching this PQ on this config.. the Panasonic does 10-bit.. no more.
I'm desperate to find better if anyone can point to it.. please let me know.
BTW: watch the opening scene in this Dawn disc (in the exact above config) and anyone let me know what kind of motion issue the LG 7 is supposed to still be having.
To be clear to my A1E brethren.. the A1E doesn't do forced 12 bit at this time..
There is a difference.. that extra 2-bits is not a passive technicality.. any serious videophile will likely see it as a very big deal for PQ.
Anyone with the OPPO trying this (forced 12 bit) watch Planet Earth II and The Revenant and let me know your thoughts..
(note: the OPPO is going to produce flashes on the screen in this config between playback and menu, it's worth it for disc playback performance, have to live with it same as with DV discs)
P.s. I was watching Arrival 4K disc in the above forced 12-bit config.. that's what made me buy the G7 on the spot to replace the A1E.
This is Holy Grail folks
Oh and Mad Max Fury Road 4K disc.. watch that.. the sand storm car chase.. come to God TV moment.
