Add me to the list! Granted, I had to so some minor tweaking in the gamma settings (5% IRE Luminance to +12) to counteract "black crush," but I have never had the issues listed by sorinelionut.

Again, with those who mount their displays ABOVE a fireplace, if it's an LCD not only will there be neck/back issues, but there will be serious viewing problems in most cases, for we know that the colors and brightness of an LCD will "wash out" as one gravitates too far from center. This is not only true of going too far "to one side," but also too far "above." I have seen many LCD displays at B&M stores mounted way too high and it was indeed "washed out" (you especially notice it if another display is mounted right below it.

Of course, this is a moot point for this thread, for OLED owners are blessed with a beautiful display that has no issues with "viewing angles."
had a friend who had his tv over fireplace , slightly angled downward , but always left with a stiff sore neck . Hated watching TV at his house .

Your use of the past tense - did it affect your friendship that much ? If you're still in touch I'd be interested to know if he now has long-term neck issues and regrets it. Among my circle of friends, one has chosen a house without a fireplace in favour of a house with one, specifically for TV placement reasons. Another has removed a fireplace so that the TV can go where it SHOULD go at the proper height. And the first one has recently moved again, to a house with a fireplace, and guess what's getting ripped out soon

He moved to a place without a fireplace , and has his tv on a stand now. It did bother his neck a lot at previous place . I just been over a couple of times to watch tv since he moved into his new place. He grudgingly admits tv over fireplace was not a great idea. But yeah after a couple times at his previous place I was not going there anymore more to watch a movie or football. Tv was too high up.

I agree. Mine is mounted above the fireplace downstairs... and yes, it hurts my neck after long periods. I bought a new couch to help with that.

So, does your new couch have a lift on it?

Agreed, but this is for people who have installed it higher than usual, w/o fireplaces. Also I'm not sure how many use their fireplaces, I'm probably going to get a load for asking?

I don't know the answer, but if the fireplace is never used yet you mount the TV above it anyway, without ripping out and get all that neck strain, surely that's even sillier . Just rip it out.
But each to their own.

Never been to Texas so I don't really know, does it cold enough to even want a real fireplace on?

Up here (in the winter) we actually use ours to help heat the house...

I'm half-considering a dentist's chair to watch TV in. Seems to be the perfect angle, great leg support, fully adjustable, and most comfortable.

I've watched tv in a dentist's chair before, but it was always mounted on the ceiling or near the ceiling facing down. Of course, I also had my teeth cleaned or repaired at the same time!

There are pull down TV mounts specifically designed for mounting over a fireplace, like this : https://www.mantelmount.com/

Too much work, I'd rather just hurt my neck.


(Being serious though)


My TV is in a L shaped area and it would require a much longer neck to accomplish that then what that website provides.

Interesting. In HDR and SDR, game mode is locked, along with most options. I assume it's because my C8 was pro calibrated with Calman?

On a serious note (since most of my posts today, and that of others, have been on the humorous side), do you think LG will be taking to heart the posts of those who have downloaded the newest FW Update and have reported that the gamma issue has NOT been resolved? In asking this, I am fairly content with the .31 Firmware and the adjustments I've made to gamma settings, but it really would be nice to have a REAL FIX.

I know any response will be pure speculation, but perhaps we'll gain the ear of technicians at LG in continuing to ask for this to be resolved.

It’s been “fixed” in the latest experimental firmware at least on my set so that should be rolled out to everyone soon . I redid my calibrations last night and everything is back to the way is was with .15. Assuming you are referring to .55 because the latest one addresses the gamma issue.

You seem to make a lot of sweeping generalizations that aren’t really based on anything solid.

Your panel has black crush with default brightness setting 50 with 05.10.00 firmware. It doesn't mean everyone's panel will be the same


Yeah that’s exactly the point , and the other folks in this thread making assumptions based on one or two posts .

chunon, I'm referring to posts such as Adamd's (and one or two others) who said or implied that there is still black crush with the 5.10.00 update. He even states that he adjusted his gamma settings to try to correct it.

Are you saying you downloaded the 5.10.00 FW Update and then changed your gamma settings back to the Default Settings and all is well?
