I don't recall if the B6 had that dimming setting in the SM, but I can confirm the G7 definitely did! So how bizarre is it that despite having apparently the same setups, behavior is totally different.

BTW, yes, disabling dimming in the SM on the C8 will let you go on with no dimming, but a pinned OLED light. I totally agree with jk82 this is not a recommended approach to battling this absurd (yes, I said it, 'absurd' IMO) approach to burn-in protection.

Although perhaps rare, I'll bet that if this is what it takes to have this dimming kick in, eventually you will find real-world content, other than news, where this issue will rear its ugly head.

Yep, that's all I'd be willing to try.

My experience overall has been similar to Bluecow's. After applying the 5% IRE Luminance setting to +12 the "black crush" is gone on SDR/satellite broadcasts. I watch a ton of UHD Blu-rays (both HDR10 and Dolby Vision) and the PQ is amazing. Streaming on Amazon Prime has also been fantastic.
Den, I just don't get it, I really don't. I get it every time with this content as do apparently some others that have looked. Now jk82 confirmed this behavior in his setup. I'm scratching my head to understand what's different in your setup.

I've never had any dimming issues, macro blocking, or whatever, with my C8 either regardless of content or source, and I haven't done any of the voodoo stuff in the SM. I haven't even bothered to update to the latest firmware version. I've been using pretty much the "starter" settings from rtings.com with a few suggested modifications. If I do have the issues to a certain degree, they certainly aren't perceivable to our viewers.

I never trust an atom, they make up everything.

It doesn't. Hmm, having said that when I re-watch the below, he does say 1000 nits for OLED. But there must be a difference between that and the LCD. Perhaps he was wrong

Watch Vincent's excellent review here for a proper breakdown of the options available:

And D-Nice stated that there were no changes to gamma or black crush, just near-black dithering and [something else techie but good], where other advanced members have posted graphs from their calibration equipment showing the gamma all mucked up below IRE 35.


WTF is going on with this firmware update?

That was a bit disconcerting to think of running the display that way. So on again went the dimming setting.

It's just fascinating that both my B6 and G7 don't respond like this in any way and yet I've never had a trace of burn-in. I even went into the SM on those displays and confirmed the settings were at their default values.

Man, LG certainly became aggressive with this in the C8 and IMO, way too over-the-top.
Confirmation that the 'Dimming' setting in the Service does in fact disable this new (with C8) Automatic News Station Dimming (ANSD) feature, thanks! (and that it also locks OLED Light at 100, which is totally bone-headed and may be a bug ).

Ken, the difference is the OLED light setting (again, mine is at 47 whereas you set yours to 60 or 70). Didn't you tell me that when you set it at 50 or below it doesn't dim?

It seems to be down to panel variances. This is the best guesstimate so far from discussions in many threads. So D-Nice's panel may not have changed much, but Vincent's may have changed a lot; hence their conflicting advice. It's still early days.

So it sounds like you haven't watched anything on your C8 that would trigger this issue.

Maybe not. However, every time we watch the C8, regardless of source or content, it's been fine and problem-free. Possibly if the C8 was our primary tv we'd see some issues, but not the way we use it.

Hi, can someone here tell me what is the recommended optimal 4K blu Ray player to ust with the lg c8. I got on the list of buying the Panasonic ub9000 for the April release but would I benefit from the hdr optimizer or get my moneys worth since the lg has good dynamic tone mapping?
Any comments and suggestions on what to get is very appreciated!

You would definitely benefit from the Panny's superior tone mapping (why not an 820 which is half the cost?). I'm happy with how HDR and DV looks, I use an Oppo that will have to die before its retired

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

ymmv

Sorry if I've missed but are there settings for DolbyVision as well?

Thanks! I just read that the 9000 is the best out there so I thought why not get it. However I looked up the 820 and I read the only difference is THX certification, audiophile components, coaxial digital output, or two channel phono and balanced XLR outputs. I believe the only thing that would apply is the THX certification for me. I would not need audiophile components if I am connecting it via HDMI to my AV receiver, or am I incorrect in that?

The DP-UB9000 also has specific Video Optimizer settings for projectors that the DP-UB820 does not have in its Video Optimizer settings. So if you don't have a projector and won't be using the superior DAC's in the DP-UB9000 for 2-channel listening, then the DP-UB820 will be just as good and save you $500 as well.

Re: 'Automatic News Station Dimming' (ANSD) or whatever we are calling it.
I just tried setting Logo Luminance Adjustment to High which visibly dims the banner on CNN and seems to do so without the rest of the picture dimming over time. It would be interesting to put together some way of measuring the APL of the non-banner area to be sure if it helps or not.

Yeah, I noticed that! For me anyways and I have had my C8 calibrated{don't know if that makes a difference}, I have my TPC Turned off and Dimming off and it looks great! Although, I use all my devices exclusively in HDR mode, which may also affect it the reason why I barely see dimming issues. PC, UHD player, PS4, Xbox One X, etc. Direct TV defaults to to 2020, but not full HDR as I am sure you know already. Strange, maybe these settings and pro calibration makes it with the new firmware, not see what most are seeing regarding black crush, etc? One thing, that really bothers me though is the MPEG being totally disabled!

I hope you meant this as a joke.

If you are serious though, I suggest going back a few pages, you will get all your answers.

I just tried setting Logo Luminance Adjustment to High which visibly dims the banner on CNN and seems to do so without the rest of the picture dimming over time. It would be interesting to put together some way of measuring the APL of the non-banner area to be sure if it helps or not.

That is an interesting thought. The logo luminance setting dims banners pretty quickly. Maybe turning this on will in most cases lower the brightness of static banners below the threshold so that ANSD will no longer trigger after 2 minutes and thus not dimming the whole picture. Something worth testing I guess.
