Oh man thanks! I was only using technicolor and it never occurred to me that the ISFs ones would allow the change while technicolor wouldn't. Now I can get the same image with the low input lag. With HDR, yeah there is no solution here as PC mode makes everything 4:4:4 and HDR needs chroma subsampling to fit into the HDMI2.0 bandwidth. LG would have to add a setting to change chroma mode for it work properly. Not holding my breath on that one, so I'm sticking with game mode on HDR. Changing color temp to W45 and matching the other settings to technicolor gets you pretty close. Something I do feel is pretty odd is just how much lag I sense outside of PC/Game mode, everything is incredibly sluggish, in a way that it didn't on my plasma. I would sometimes forget to turn game mode on there and wouldn't notice, it was only when doing an on/off comparison that I would notice. And if I'm remembering the numbers correctly, the VT60 and C8 lag numbers should be pretty close outside of game mode. Once it's engaged it's very responsive, slightly more than the VT60 (as backed up by the measurements), but without it it's like you are wearing the iron boots from Zelda.

Well, that and 50hz content. The flicker is really, really, really crazy with a 50hz input. Try out Planet Earth with BFI to see what I mean!
Yeah I don't see any flicker, it's a bummer for those in Europe where there is a lot of 50hz content.
I tested the Switch last night and the up-scaling is pretty good, not that much different looking than how it was on my VT60. With your tip, nothing to really miss with my plasma. I do feel bad for those that see issues/had bad luck with panels. I really think something that gets lost in these arguments is that there is a lot more variance with how our eyes see things than we realize. Remember 1-2 years ago when that picture of a dress took over the internet because some saw it as black and blue, and others white and gold, if I remember correctly. And it all came down to a deficiency in our eyes, for those of us that saw the wrong color, like me. We have seen things like this on tvs here throughout the years, from DLP rainbows, to LCD ghosting and DSE, plasma phosphor trails and screen door effect, Oled banding and near black handling. Plasma too my eyes had absolutely perfect uniformity with no issues whatsoever, but I remember a particular poster here that could always see the screen door effect, while I had to get my face about a foot or 2 off the screen to notice it. The only way for you to know is to use the tv in your home or in an environment close to it. Because while I don't see any hint of vertical bars whatsoever, if
sat in my couch and watched the same content, he might be able to see it as his eyes are very sensitive to it from his posting history.
