Don't think you can turn off Real Cinema in HDR content.

I just set up my 65" C8 and still have to fidget with the settings, but the black level on this thing is ridiculous (good, that is). I'm coming from a Panasonic plasma, which I thought was pretty good, but this set is really something. For example, the Directv guide is noticeably blacker.

My biggest issue at this point is that there is definitely more reflection from light in the room onto the TV screen than my plasma screen, but the sun moves across the back of our house late in the day here in California, so I'll have to figure out how to deal with that.

Did I mention the black level is ridiculous?

I honestly never use that feature...if you like voice activated features, you can try an amazon fire cube with alexa.

There are no issues out of the box with the LG C8, right? I don't plan to ever upgrade the firmware after buying it.
I have really enjoyed my C8 for the 3 plus weeks I’ve had it now, my B7 is feeling a little neglected, but with Solo and the new Ant Man & the Wasp 4k UDH Ultra disks to watch this weekend it will get some use as will the Oppo

No issues for me, I wouldn’t recommend skipping firmware updates forever on any display. Turn off the auto updates and then wait to update until others have had the chance to beta test it for you. If you’d skipped updates last year for the B/C7, then you’d not have the Technicolor settings, fix for elevated blacks on DV and a few other nice enhancements. The key is to see what the update adds or fixes, get feedback from those using it, and then decide if you should install it.

There is no perfect display, quit looking for faults and enjoy

Honestly love my 77C8 and likely the best picture I ever seen, but I do have to say the Sony(I have LCD) upscales 480/720/1080 content noticeably better. I don't have the Sony oled but I'm guessing the PQ is very similar to the C8 with 4K content since they both employ the same LG panel.


Also of note...I received 4.10.06 update ota today. Caveat is I flashed Korean version of 4.10.05 and was curious if it would update ota when available...it did.

Ditto came from a Panasonic TC-P50ST50 Plasma. At the time I thought this thing was good. But not only is the OLED much brighter, the black levels, and detail of the 65 OLED just blow it away.

Sanity Check

All - first time logging into AVS to post in many, many years. Still the proud owner of a D-Nice calibrated Kuro Elite which is going on 9+ years now.

I recently took the plunge and picked up a 65C8 from Costco and while the contrast is unbelievably great, I'm a bit overwhelmed by the amount of dithering, noise, and general blah of dark content in streaming content like Netflix and HBO. I understand this is probably due to the technical limitation of streaming itself, but has anyone come up with any good settings or suggestions to eliminate this if you're watching the same content? I'm using CNet's ISF Dark settings now. Just watched an episode of Iron Fist and the dark scenes looked so awful I nearly had to turn it off.

I did notice some of these problems while watching the same content on my Kuro, but perhaps due to the size (50") and dimmer screen it didn't jump out at me the way it does on the LG. I guess the extra real estate makes that unavoidable.

Anyways, glad to be back in the land of AVS and looking forward to playing with this set a bit more. I'm guessing this topic has already been covered before but always happy to hear more input.

Just really poor cinematography and (natual?) lighting work with HDR cameras.

The settings I use on my 77" C8:

for HDR --
technical Expert (user)
oled light 70
Contrast 88
Brightness 59
Sharpness 0
color 50
tint 0
tone mapping ON
super resolution HIGH
color temp WARM1


for DV --
cinema (user)
oled light 50
contrast 96
brightness 50
sharpness 0
color 50
tint 0
super resolution HIGH
color temp MEDIUM


for SDR --
isf Expert (Dark Room)
oled light 70
contrast 88
brightness 59
sharpness 0
color 66
tint G6
super resolution HIGH
color gamut WIDE
gamma BT.1886
color temp WARM2
I really wish someone could watch these same scenes on an oled display capable of HDR or DV specifically a smartphone,etc. Curious to see if its the same effect on a laptop or whatever is on hand.

Since 06, I have seen more dimming in HDR stuff, not by a whole lot. It is way more subtle though.

^one thing with oleds is garbage in garbage out...some netflix movies or shows show some compression...hbo is notoriously bad on these especially hbogo...I know because it drives me nuts at times. Try using technicolor preset for both sdr/hdr...most accurate ootb.

One thing that I'm not sure about is the something that seems like a lack of sharpness in the picture at certain points. Almost a slight fuzziness. My wife noticed it too, which means it's not my imagination, since she rarely notices anything like that. She actually put on her glasses because she thought it might be her eyes, and I took out my contacts and put on my glasses, because I though it might be my contacts.

I keep trying to figure out what is causing it. When I look at static lettering on the Directv guide on with titles, they appear quite sharp. And when people are not moving on the screen or there is a still scene, I don't seem to notice it. Perhaps it seems to occur primarily with motion? Is the motion processing not as good as on the plasmas? Is this something that gets better after the set has a few hours on it, or should I be turning on Tru-motion to some setting?

I'm gonna try waltinuz settings, but I have a question, when we set the white balance for r g b high and low, we have to manually switch it back and forth, to change it, it's like it's either one thing or the other? What do I select before exiting the settings?

also the hdr10 settings posted, can I use it for DOLBY VISION as well?

I did try adjusting the TruMotion setting to user and 0 - 10, and that seems to have helped quite a bit. Also updated the software, which I think was 3.00.075, or something like that. Not sure which helped more, but the motion processing definitely seems better.

Looks like lg made the stand on the c8 really wide and we'll be needing a 4 feet stand to have the tv on top of it. wall mounting isnt an option, so if a small desk wouldnt hold the tv, we need a new table or look at a third party stand with much smaller base, do any of those exist?

I remember when I had a plasma and went OLED, I was amazed. I wonder if they can build a technology to take out OLED, not sure its possible, but I said that about plasma TV's way back when......

That decision however turns out counter user friendly. Hopefully, they will see the light (pun intended).

I agree I saw the effect in the 3.00.90 fw too. According tho the Forbes article linked above it would appear LG worsened the issue with fw 4.10.05.

Finally joined the C8 club. Yesterday my 55 inch C8 was delivered and installed. Coming from a KS7000 I have to say I'm impressed. I had to no time to check in depth but a quick race on GT Sport wowed me.

It came with firmware 3.01.05 and every time I turn it on asks to update to 4.10.05. I really don't know what do, should I update? Should I update the 4.10.06 from .kr site? Is there a way to avoid this update alert from popping every time?

Bingo! I think of it as a haze over a field like you might see with a very bright sunlight overhead. I have noticed the same on both my 65 & 77 C8s, In fact I asked my son who was here tonight if he saw it as well. He said he didn't so I just went back to assuming my eyes or imagination are the more likely problem. I mostly see the haze effect when watching SDR from a Verizon FIOS cable. To make matters worse some days its there like today other days its not like the previous 3 days.

It is not a lack of sharpness effect I think. When I add sharpness to the settings there is the noticeable blur around font characters. So I keep the sharpness setting at 0.

I think I have reduced the haze effect somewhat by using the super resolution setting on HIGH as well as by reducing the oled light and contrast settings. That's the best I've come up with. My current favorite settings are cut and pasted by another commenter on this page just above here.

But, yes I think I also see what you are seeing.

I'm using CNet's ISF Dark settings now. Just watched an episode of Iron Fist and the dark scenes looked so awful I nearly had to turn it off.
Were you watching the 4K stream when you noticed this "awfulness"? I'm curious about this since I'm in the same situation you were (long time Kuro owner) but I've always understood that "problems" derived from lower resolution material.

Which CNet settings did you use?

Best test is to use the Technicolor PM and just adjust the brightness to you room and adjust motion to your taste and see how it looks.
