Not to mention two other annoyances:


Sound levels are defining at most theaters...never understood why.....maybe to drown out cell phones and chatting. you mention.

And quality of projection equipment, in all, but the most advanced theaters, does not match the visual or audio quality of OLED with good HTS at home.

For those viewing in a pitch black (or very dark, too) room do you select Cinema or Cinema Home Mode for Dolby Vision content? Thanks in advance.

Welcome old friend "Cinema Home" is designed for daytime viewing. "Cinema" is the "accurate" mode for night viewing.

Hello there! Looks like great minds think alike for new purchases! Lol This is what I thought. Does Cinema mode in night viewing hold back any of the brightness though? I read it tries to preserve as much detail without clipping but you can definitely tell in some content it’s so much darker. So does it maintain most of the peak brightness the tv can perform (the entire point of HDR) or dip more than liked to preserve? Thanks so much for responding to my question as it’s been driving me a little crazy trying to choose between the more realistic feel of cinema vs the more HDR10 bright feel of cinema home. Would you mind if I PM’d you two other questions I have?

Whatever picture mode you use turn off trumotion and the eye care/auto brightness first.

Or go to rtings.com and follow their settings.
Thank you. What menu is the one where I can turn that stuff off and on?

I finally figured out how to mess with the HDR settings. There was someone standing in front of a white background when I paused the channel and changed the settings, and when I put HDR on low, the white background turned yellow, even on medium, still pretty yellow, then on high, fairly white but not real white. Is this normal? Im watching the playoff game on Fox fyi, 1080p signal from xfinity.

Is there any way I can get around that so I can turn my TV on and off without having to go buy new speakers? Thank you.

There is always a chance you would have found the same/different set of issues with the A9F for almost twice the price. The red tint issue especially seems like a panel lottery/luck of the draw situation.

Only about my 7th hour watching the C8, I forgot about the burn in risk and watched the NFL football game live. Is that OK? Luckily I watched 3/4 of it live so there were lots of breaks with commercials where the graphics disappeared. But they were in the same place for like 10-15 minutes at a time, with only 2-3 minute breaks, repeatedly. Is that OK? Now I have a soccer game on where it will be 45 mins straight of logos in the same place, although every 5 mins I have been bringing up the xfinity menu that makes the entire screen dark grey and covers up the logos for the most part, to hopefully move the pixels around.

Is this OK or should I not be watching these things so early into owning the TV? (I negotiated another week to test it out)

Just watch the darn thing and enjoy it! (Varied content is perfectly fine and has nearly zero risk of burn in). See the rtings latest update where LOTS of football caused ZERO burn in.

My new 65C8 began displaying a message at startup in the upper right hand corner area of the display which reads “HDMI 2.0 now available”. Anybody have a clue why this started showing up a few weeks ago? I thought HDMI 2.0 was the hardware default on the C8? The unit is setup to receive automatic updates. I’m not sure if there was a recent udate, which. caused the banner message to start showing. Anybody experience anything like this?

I guess it means HDMI port number 2 is available, because there is a device connected to that port. Plug the device into port 3 and it will display HDMI 3 is now available. You will live in the future!

Burn in risk is cumulative. So if you watch one hour of sports a day and twenty hours of shows/movies, you still have seven hours that week of sports contributing to ‘burn in’.

You do seem to need thousands of hours of the same content to get really bad burn in though so, just make sure you aren’t watching sports for an entire day every single week and you should probably be fine.

Haven't seen anyone else bring this up but I might have missed it.

This is a good idea but consider that Samsung promised to update 2015 Samsung 4k sets smart apps to accommodate newer apps like YouTubeTV & DirecTV Now & they didn't.

I am. It's working fine. Soundbar is a Samsung bar from 2014.


Note that I do not have an Xfinity tuner. I refuse to rent equipment from Comcrap. I use my own set top box with a cable card in it.

This doesn't work for me. It may be because we are a using wired internet connection to our C8, not wireless. Wireless isn't consistent for streaming video. Too bad the LG remote can't be reprogrammed to use one of the unused remote buttons for INFO.

Good point, I believe they had also said something about HDR10+ for the KS8000 and others. Not happening.

We have a soundbar connected & use HDMI 2 in order to set the soundbars settings (HDMI 2 may be for ARC as well but not at home to check). With ARC the soundbar turns on & off with the LG remote. Sometimes when our home power goes out during a storm the soundbar will not power on automatically using the C8 remote so the C8 is using the TVs speaker audio only. After a few minutes we'll see “HDMI 2.0 now available” in the upper right, as you have, to remind us to turn on the soundbar. That's the only time we see this.

No worries at all with this. Do make sure you go into OLED panel settings and set Logo Luminance Adjustment to low or high. I use low.


What size panel did you get? What did you think about the motion handling of the set?

Should I really expect burn in

So around Thanksgiving I bought an LG LCD 65" TV that I returned because of banding and clouding. After over a month of looking I was all set to settle on a Sony 65" X900 because I was worried about the issues I have read on AVS forums and elsewhere about burn in on the oled tvs. Today I came across a deal for a 65" C8 online that is making me think I should get it. It is coming with a 4 year extended square trade warranty. So before the trigger gets pulled

1) We watch 60 percent TV stations which have some sort of logo on them, 30 percent of the time is movies and around 10 percent of the times it is sports is that a concern. The TV can be on up to 12 hours in a day but it is never on any TV station for that period of time. Plus there are commercials, channel flipping etc. 3 to 6 hours is the average time the tv is on. So is burn in a reason I should stay away?

2) The warranty is a square trade warranty. Will that cover burn in if it does indeed happen?

3) Our great room is extremely bright during the day is that something that will hamper viewing. I am not as concerned about it for night viewing. The wife factor during the day I am concerned with.

I am looking for fantastic blacks and the 4k LCDs just don't seem to get that way.

Thanks for any input

My C8 is wired too. If the app can't see your TV in the same network then you've got a networking issue to solve. My old netgear had an option for "wireless isolation" which prevented devices from talking to each other. If you are on a guest network some routers will disable device communication by default.


I have a pretty complicated Unifi network with 5 separate VLANs and I have designated networks where devices can talk to each other. The LG app works fine for me. Anyway this is a problem for another forum.

Anyone know what the 10 options for DeJudder do exactly? @24p, there can only be 4 frames interpolated between the original frames, yet there are 10 settings.

I personally can only tolerate DeJudder of 1, anymore and the SOE and artifacts are too noticeable.

Also, I've seen some people say that turning up DeBlur to 10 will increase the lines of motion of the TV even for 24p content? Is this true or just a myth? I don't see any effect of DB when watching 24p content.

What is the current firmware for the c8? Mine is at 4.1.0-5606 goldilocks-glacier. No update Is detected. Is this the update with web os4? Is there any newer update?

I thought this was the case for me when I first got my TV. When I was looking at white text on a black background (like on many of the LG demos), I found there was waaay too much light bleed into the surrounding black areas. I thought something was broken.... But turns out it was an optical effect being done in my eyes.

Try this as a test. Next time when you have white text on a black bg and you are seeing the light bleed effect, put your hand in front of you eyes with your hands covering just the white text and not the bleeding area. You will see the light bleed disappear, move your hand away, and the light bleed returns.

I am guessing the light is bright enough on the OLEDS to cause light flares in our optic nerves.
