I don't think Netflix has any HDR10 content, only DV.
You can have 4k resolution with no HDR.

I don’t intend to use LG OLED for HT as I have separate projector/HT setup.
E8 is not a whole lot more, you can get it but it will not be like the Pioneer sound you had.

You might indeed, if it was beta.......however that has nothing to do with banding.

I see that the Sony OLED won the Flat Panel Shootout this year, making it TWO YEARS IN A ROW. It actually won in every category except they tied with the LG OLED in the "Streaming" category. I know they use the LG Panel (as we have noted quite often in the last discussion about issues we have been having) but they must be doing something right. I guess I'm not surprised it won in the SDR category, for having had the Flagship Sony LCD/LED from 2016, their "processor" is somewhat better that LG's. But I was surprised that they also won in the HDR category.

The scores were very close , having owned a 2018 model from each manufacturer I can tell you each has their pluses and minuses . Lot of hyperbole in that shoot out thread . Anyone trying to tell you the gulf is vast is being disingenuous imo .No need to hang your head in shame . .

Amazon has the 4k UHD Dynasties on sale right now. I just ordered it and plan to re-watch Planet Earth as well now that I've gotten my C8s professionally calibrated.

Agreed!

Yes, I saw the stats and the differences between the Sony and LG OLEDs were minimal in most cases. I also read the whole thread on the shoot out and one of the "Sony Fanboys" was most annoying, basically saying the Sony was the only "adult" in the room and the other displays were "adolescents." That is quite the "adolescent statement" if you ask me.

The default gamma was crushing the blacks at the low end. It's good now and for me it was worth the risk. Thanks again!

Planet Earth 2 on UHD looks absolutely STUNNING on our C8 OLEDs! I can't speak to Dynasties though, but when I watched it on the BBC channel it wasn't nearly as interesting as PE2 so I decided against purchasing the set (each episode was very slow-paced and the cinematography couldn't match PE2).

I have ran across only 1 movie that was hdr10, every else has been DV or just 4K. Don’t remember the name of the movie.

You are right, PE2 on UHD is what I meant to say. And I understand the first two episodes of Dynasties is less than enthralling, but the video quality throughout is the same as the PE2.

I am very surprised the new release fw is still not out. I truly expected it to be released the day after my calibrations since that is how things have been for me lately.

I smiled from ear to ear when I read this post for that's USUALLY how it pans out for me. Again, I'm trying to be patient regarding this FW Update; in fact, I decided not to mention it again and then your post came in.

Isn't Dolby Vision considered HDR? HDR10 is a type of HDR and Dolby Vision is HDR with dynamic metadata?

Hdr & Dolby vision are considered different even though they do the same type of thing.

Thanks for posting the instructions on how to make the changes in the service menu! The new fw release is taking far too long, and since someone confirmed your step by step instructions I figured it would be an easy change as long as I am careful. What a difference! I played my John Wick 4k dvd before and after the upgrade the level of detail in the dark scenes at the beginning of the movie is significantly noticeable. Hopefully LG posts their public fw update soon! Hopefully they are bundling it with other fixes that don't hurt anything on the tv.

Man I need to stop reading this thread. The wait for this firmware is a struggle.

Does it void your warranty to upgrade to beta fw?

It could possibly, plus if there are bugs in the firmware and the official firmware release is lower than the beta, you will be stuck with the beta until a higher release comes out

Picture shows how warm1 looks with D65 white point and when set to technicolor custom wp.
I just read Rtings review of the Sony A9G. What was interesting to me is what the default white balance reading is in the most accurate preset. It looks like this set needs a professional calibration to get under the threshold of delta error of 3. I checked Rtings and also Make73’s evaluation of white points and listed below the default picture mode delta error values.

Sony A9G: Custom 1= 4.25 per Rtings
LG C9: ISF Dark Warm 2 = 3.46 per Rtings
LG C8: ISF Dark Warm 2 = 2.52 per Rtings
LG C8: Technicolor Warm 1= 1.25 per Make73

I haven’t seen any postings of default Technicolor white balance numbers for the LG C9 to compare with.
For those who have had any of these sets calibrated the defaults don’t mean anything. For those who are looking for accuracy out of the box this is close to what you are getting. I know white balance is just one part of the overall picture quality equation.

Yes, I have my C8 on Technicolor Warm 1.

I use an Panasonic UB9000/9004 watching Netflix. I disabled DV. This means only static HDR remains. This is also shown in the top right corner of the tv.

^^^^ I said maybe have 1 or 2 hours on it. “Maybe” being the operative word. I wouldn’t be concerned if my new tv had 1, maybe 2 hours on it. Preferably O, but not 8500.

I never trust an atom, they make up everything.

What firmware are you on? You may want to hold off because there is going to be a future update that will change gamma and your calibration will need to be changed.

I am on firmware 04.10.55, and I do not allow my software to automatically update. So when an update comes out, I will evaluate whether or not I should install it.

Well some people won’t agree but you could get into the service menu and download the beta software that has the gamma fix on it. I’ve been on the beta firmware for weeks and have had no issues. If that’s what you want to try there’s lots of info on this form about it and the potential risks that come with beta firmwares.

Please, let's stop telling people about going into the service menu. One WRONG change can completely screw up their tv.

If you want to tell them about the service menu, then DM them and at least warn them that changing the wrong setting or messing around in there can lead to big issues including bricking the tv.
