Was there any downsides to the .20 firmware then? or is it pretty safe to update to that one and it doesn't change anything with regards to actual picture quality.

I haven't tried to check for updates since shortly after .31 became available. But like you and darthkringle, my notifications have gone away. I have downloaded .31 to my PC but not installed it on the TV.

Ideally this is what you want support to do. Report it to the engineering team. Unfortunately, unless it’s a critical issue it may not be on top of their list to fix. I’m a software engineer and just giving you an insight on how issues like this are sometimes just pushed back in the backlog because of other priorities that needs to be done.

Damn I was hoping it was the source and not the TV but what's odd is soon after it's a no issue so idk what to think since if it was the source I would think it would be on everyone's set at that particular scene smh

I get a "dirty wave" pattern on all black scenes or mostly black scenes with Dolby Vision content. There were some posts about this a few months ago. Is this a Dolby Vision program?

I never had the black noise flashing that some had. Way to ruin a good set. And now knowing that these things will still update with auto update off. Yikes. Will never buy LG again and will be selling thie E8 as soon as possible. Between poor customer service and quality control, never buy LG. I like that they want to try to fix the dark picture by randomly replacing parts to see what will fix it. They have no clue

And to mention my tv now also randomly shuts itself off and has audio drop outs with the built in apps now too.
I downgraded on one of my C8's and I had VUDU keep crashing after playing for a few minutes. I remembered this was an issue before and went and changed my location settings to Canada. I let it restart and then changed to United States and that resolved my app issue.

Can't speak to the other apps and haven't noticed any audio drop outs or restarting. Might try a factory reset too.

Good Luck sorry to hear

Thanks again for the very informative discussions here. As a new 77C8 owner I now have 135 hours on my set. I am still on FW .15 as I blocked the 3 LG urls in my router. Interesting reading here that there is a possibility that LG removed the .31 FW from OTA updating.

The picture quality is great on my set with FW .15 and thus do not have a high level of motivation to go to .31. However I have not viewed any UHD or DV content yet but will try soon via Netflix. I can see good detail in near blacks and can easily see all the top left boxes and frames in Wizziwigs test pattern in a dark room. I am waiting for the whole FW thing to shake out.

I do have a question if I may. When I bought my 77C8 I also upgraded my AVR to a Marantz SR7012 as I have a 7.2 audio setup. I view content from a Dish Hopper 3, Sony Bluray, and Apple TV (not 4K yet). I've read here for DirectTV users that is best to set the video output to "direct" so the TV does all the video processing and upscaling.

On my DishTV the four video resolution options are: <4K, 1080p, or 1080i>, <720p>, <480p>, and <480i>. There does not seem to be a "direct" option. I have it set to <4K, 1080p, or 1080i>.

Also, it appears the Marantz receiver has a lot of video processing capabilities if one wants this. The Marantz AVR even has several picture mode (PM) options that are similar to the 77c8 PM options. I have the Marantz PM option set to "off".

My question is what setting on the Marantz AVR should I set the "4K Signal Format" to? The choices are either <Standard> or <Enhanced>. Normally, I have <Standard> selected.

When I select <Enhanced> I get a popup message that states: "Your TV is not configured to support 4K 60p 4:4:4, 4:2:2 or 4K 60p 4:2:0 10 bit video. Are you sure you want to use 4K Enhanced? <Yes> <No>"

Of course I have played around with this and have watched content in both settings. But, I don't really know what this means. I think I am seeing a difference between "standard" and "enhanced" but I am not sure. The Marantz manual does not provide any detail. Also, I do follow the AVSForum thread for the sr7012 owners (along with several OLED threads) and think this is the best place to ask this.

I just turned on the C8 to watch the ball game and didn't see any update notification ( I haven't updated yet) so I checked the version and I'm still on .15 with no indication that an update is available. I always leave Automatic Update disabled.

I'm not an expert on that STB but that sounds right to me.

Ok simpler answer: you need to set it to "Enhanced" on the AVR, and on the TV go to Picture, Additional Settings and turn "HDMI ULTRA HD Deep Colour" to ON.

Because the AVR is a sink device it is receiving the signal from the STB, so needs to tell the STB it can accept the high-bandwidth modes which are supported in HDMI2.0b.

Older models would just re-send the setting from the TV, and by turning "HDMI ULTRA HD Deep Colour" to ON the TV advertises that it can accept those high-bandwidth modes. But now you have to remember to turn it on in two places

if you don't, you can't get HDR (to keep it simple!). In my signature there is a link to a HDMI modes table, you can see how limited the modes are at the top with the setting off. Some older devices play havoc if they are connected to a HDMI 2.0b TV/AVR though, which is why that switch is provided.

Was it a dark scene? I know others have reported the "dirty waves" in Dolby Vision as well and I have no idea what causes it. I am not saying what I see is what you are seeing, and I not subscribed to Netflix right now, so I can't check it out for you.

Lowering brightness to 49 alleviates what I have, but I do worry that doing so results in black crush, but I don't know for sure since I don't have any Dolby Vision test patterns.

With the new firmware, is it only SDR that is affected with black crush or is this present in HDR & Dolby Vision as well?

I picked up the C8 65 at Costco Saturday since Best Buy didn't show up for delivery the other day. I knew it would be tough getting it in the car, trunk hinge area stopped it, so I had to unbox it. lol. Made it safely though.

I am coming from 55 2011 Panasonic Plasma. There were areas that that TV did better, but 4K, HDR, and of course the bigger size is nice on the C8 65. Hopefully as I tweak a few things and just spend more time watching it, the gap will close in the other areas. 4K gaming is a strong point, in Forza I thought something was spilled on the TV, but it was a dirty windshield in the game. lol. Shadow of Tomb Raider and Read Dead 2 look amazing as well. Anything 1080p looks quite nice too.

Plasmas were pretty special though. Motion is the biggest drawback so far.

I am not going to purposely look for bands, I do see one a couple inches wide towards left of screen on certain backgrounds, like screen saver from my set top box, but it won't show up often in normal content.

I also LOVE the manual live zoom function, where you pick where the box is zoomed at. I can zoom 160 percent on CNN, move the box up, and get rid of all banners, why they don't promote that function more? Amazing.

The TV updated overnight, it was made in August so old firmware, hopefully it won't be too bad going to the new one since it's not like I had the latest one before the update.

I need to check though Costco online gives you 3 year extra warranty from square trade free and in the store I didn't get that, I don't know if the clerks did something wrong or if it's only offered online, I'll research.

I have a request: will someone who has an Apple TV (4K) play the 4K version of Moneyball in iTunes, skip to the 1:14 timestamp and check the grain behind Jonah Hill's head? I see some weird flashing (not sure if that's the right word) going on with the grain behind his head and want to know if it's just my TV.

I've seen this flashing a couple time, when there's a thick amount of grain on screen, but this is probably the most pronounced so far. It's the scene where he's talking to Brad Pitt about the Giambi trade. I played the 1080p version on Vudu and YouTube and in those version it's not nearly as bad but it's still present a little bit.

You won't notice the difference between 4:2:0 and 4:4:4 while watching content. Maybe you might in some test slides designed to expose such a difference.

I should mention that after I test Dolby Vision, when I go back to SDR, the Apple TV enables 4:4:4 automatically. I have to set it manually back to 4:2:0.
By the way, thanks for the response, and everyone else who responded.

Can’t get the .15 software to load. I have sure loaded on an android device. Paired with the tv. TV on and usb installed. I select software update from the Sure menu. It’s on the bottom of the Rubix cube looking menu. I see the circle thing like something is happening. But nothing. Is there anything else I need to do.

Edit: Figured it out. The Android tablet that I was using is small and the options were bunched together. When I hit the software download button nothing happened but when I hit the sling tv button next to it worked. I was going to just delete the post, but figured that I would leave it incase someone else ran to the same thing.

It's the scene where he's talking to Brad Pitt about the Giambi trade. I played the 1080p version on Vudu and YouTube and in those version it's not nearly as bad but it's still present a little bit.
So I realized that I could test this myself by plugging my Apple TV into my old Vizio M50-C1, which is capable of 4K (but not HDR). Turns out, the flash/blocking (whatever you want to call it) happens there too. So either the Sony encode is just bad (very likely) or the Apple TV is glitchy (unlikely).

Does anyone have trouble with the wifi on their c8? Mine seems to not want to connect. I have tried playing with the router and resetting everything but it gives me alot of trouble. Sometimes it takes a minute to connect. All other times it cant seem to pull enough bandwidth for 1080p or 4k. It does every once in a while but most of the time not. My other devices and tvs have no problem doing this. It must be only 20 feet from the router with only 1 inside wall to pass through. My only other options are to run a cable through the roof and attic then into the room or have the cable company move the point where i can have the router plugged in. Did this with both stock firmware and the one that supposedly being pulled by lg. .31 or whatever. Any special router settings i can try?

I’ve bought my two at Costco and the way the SQ deal works is you need to buy it with the TV and then they give you a discount equal to the cost of the SQ warranty. You just need to grab the warranty when you go back and then get them to re-ring your purchase (display). Hopefully it’s never needed but 5 years is a nice benefit plus 90 days to put it through is paces. Welcome to the club.

Okay, the "new kid on the block"...or should I say, the "new LG OLED Fan Boy" has to chime in again to see if some of you are watching "The ACM Country Music Awards" on CBS. Oh my word the PQ is simply INCREDIBLE! It has to be some of the best up-scaling to 4K that I've ever seen. The COLORS are exploding against unbelievable BLACKS and with me sitting only 8' from my C877 it feels like I'm sitting in the front row with Keith Urban & Nicole Kidman!

You gotta love what these LG OLEDs are capable of!!

Thanks for this. Doing this stopped the pop-up window stating that the TV was not configured for 4K. I assume making this setting will now allow 4K video to pass through the Marantz avr to the tV? But with regular 1080p video sources the "standard" setting works?

And thanks for the "simpler" answer. I will delve into this a little deeper as I do not know what the different 4K designations are and how they affect the picture.

By the way, I would like to clarify some terms being used here. Are the following correct? If not, please correct.

1. SDR = standard definition resolution = 480p

2. HDR = high definition resolution = 1080p and 720p (but wait, HDR must also mean 2160p, or 4K sometimes? And, when HDR is 2160p video then does SDR include 720p and 1080p video?)

3. UHD = ultra-high definition = all 2160p sources = 4K
4. DV = dolby vision = 2160p = 4K
5. HDR10 = a special UHD that is also 2160p = 4K

1. SDR = standard definition resolution = 480p
No, SDR = Standard Dynamic Range (ie: Rec.809 up to 100-120 cd/m2 peak).

No, HDR = High Dynamic Range (ie: up to Rec.2020 up to 10,000 cd/m2 peak).

5. HDR10 = a special UHD that is also 2160p = 4K
All of this is essentially correct, except DV is a special proprietary flavor of HDR that is 12-bits of resolution per pixel with dynamic tone mapping and HDR10 is the generic base layer of HDR that is only 10 bits per pixel and lacks dynamic tone mapping.

UHD is 4K (2160p) resolution and HDR while FHD is 1080P and SDR (and HD can be as little as 720p or 1080i and SDR).
