The weird thing is when I do that and click set top box there is no option to reset like it was never set up, yet I connected my home theatre to hdmi 2 but yet it still has the label of set top box, I even reset the tv and the label was normal but yet set top box seems like it planted itself back on hdmi 2 even with it set up in the connector as home theater.

A small update regarding full bandwidth HDMI 2.1 support. This is a "manufacturer" answer on the Amazon "questions and answers" section of the C9 product page:

Question:"In order to take advantage of vrr and allm, do i need to buy new 48 gbps certified hdmi 2.1 cables for this tv and my xbox one x?"

Answer: "Hi James. You will be able to get 4K @ 60Hz and 8K @ 30Hz with current cables when connected to the HDMI 2.1 ports on the LG C9 65 inch Class 4K Smart OLED TV w/ AI ThinQ® (64.5'' Diag), Model # OLED65C9PUA, but for increased resolutions and higher frame rates, you will need an Ultra High-Speed HDMI Cable. Most current HDMI cables can handle nearly all of today's content. HDMI 2.1 is predominantly for people who will want to send their 4K TVs native 120 fps or 8k TVs 60 FPS material. Personal computers and high-end gaming rigs are the only current sources that can output 4K at more than 60fps. The Xbox One X can do 120fps, but only at lower resolutions and therefore doesn't require HDMI 2.1. Other than gaming, there's basically no current content that requires the bandwidth of HDMI 2.1..."

By Ivan V. MANUFACTURER on April 8, 2019

Also from the same Q&A section:

Question: "Does this tv support hdmi 2 .1?"

Answer: "Yes, all the HDMI ports on the LG Electronics OLED55C9PUA C9 Series 55" 4K Ultra HD Smart OLED TV (2019) are full spec HDMI 2.1 ports..."

By Ivan V. MANUFACTURER on April 2, 2019


Take it for what it's wroth. Hopefully nVdia's "super" video card line up has full HDMI 2.1 support so we can test this for ourselves and put this issue to bed.

This almost convinces me entirely that it does indeed support native 4k 120 with no shenanigans. But now I have to wait for the big price drops. (I don't want to pay more than $1,300 for it)

Hi PittyH, could you post a video related to ABL issue with Chrome?
Have you tried to limit ABL following rtings suggestions?


"If ABL bothers you, setting the contrast to '80' and setting Peak Brightness to 'Off' essentially disables ABL, but the peak brightness is quite a bit lower..."

Yes, the C9 is a full HDMI 2.1 TV, but... do note that the support for [email protected] aka [email protected] comes only after the expected mid-2019 firmware update. Since no commercial [email protected] video source exists right now...

Currently the C9 explicitly does NOT support 4k120. A future firmware is planned to enable it. We will have to see if that ever materializes

If you're trying to change the name of an input or choose a different icon you can go to dashboard click the edit symbol then click on the name of the input and manually change it and u can also click the input symbol and itll pull up different labels to choose from for that particular input and click save at the top. But I dont knw if that's what u were referring to

Uh? Because A) it’s not occasional as you have stated... we have talked about it happening multiple times in a day or few hours.

And B) Never happened on a former LG OLED I have owned (EG9100, C7, C8)

And C) Multiple people have confirmed its happening on their C9. *I have 500 Mbps internet service, it sure is hell ain’t that as there are no network drops when running captures on my Nighthawk during those times it happens (I do Routing and Switching).

So uh yes, it most definitely is C9 specific for a handful of us.

100 Hours Uniformity/Tinting

Hey folks. Just wanted some opinions. Got C9 a couple weeks ago and have about 100 hours on it. March 2019 build. Attached are 5%, 20%, and 100. Pics in ISF bright with light at 65. To my untrained eyes, the uniformity looks great but I have some thin yellow tinting running from top to bottom on a strip about 1/3 or a little more from the left of the screen. Content wise, I can barely pick it out on snow fields and hockey games (or it is my imagination). After going down the rabbit hole, it appears that tinting is something common to most panels since 2016 to some extent or the other and people think it is AR coating related and or panel related. If you are not viewing head one, it does change depending on the angle so I am more in the camp of the coating. I am loath to return and enter the lottery as the picture is stunning in 4K. I am coming from a ST60 and will say the plasma still holds its own in the 1080P arena. Opinions? Thanks!

Possibly...
After all, its a dual HDMI solution (one HDMI chip for 2.0 (from the C8) and one new HDMI chip for 2.1, connected to the same 4 ports...), not a unified one.

Your panel is quite normal, C9 has greater uniformity than C6, C7, or C8 and I would not change that TV. The thin yellow tinting is quite normal. Don't worry.

That's a keeper in my book assuming the tinting isn't noticeable in content. Very minimal on the banding front. Thanks for sharing

I have the exact same tinting in the exact same spot (when viewed straight on) but as you said it’s only noticeable on a bright white background (I tend to take notice of it on the home screen) and the effect is largely based on viewing angle.

Like dfa said this seems to be normal for OLED in it’s current state. There are always trade-offs with different tech but OLED has been the best movie and gaming experience I’ve yet encountered. The depth of image and dark scene performance is quite outstanding.

According to the official HDMI website, the full "HDMI 2.1 Compliance Test Specification" isn't even available yet.

Quote:
Q: When will the HDMI 2.1 Compliance Test Specification be available?
A: The HDMI 2.1 Compliance Test Specification (CTS) is being published in stages and the first release was in August 2018 including support for Enhanced Audio Return Channel (eARC). Additional features will be added in the coming months.
So it's safe to say that LG's HDMI 2.1 implementation is only partially tested and may not be fully compliant.
But maybe their engineers did a great job and didn't make any mistakes - I mean who in the IT business doesn't make any mistakes?

The bandwidth is there it should not be any different than 2k @ 24/30/60/120Hz etc. and now 4k @ 24/30/60/120Hz etc. Other than handshake its hard to imagine any other random requirement breaking LGs 48Gbps HDMI port. Even older HDMI 2.0 chips have enable some of the sub 48Gbps HDMI 2.1 features.

Exactly the additional color I was seeking - thanks.

Sounds like a much more serious issue than the ~once-a-month dropouts I experience when streaming on my 65C6.

Are all owners experiencing this issue or only a subset? If a subset, any insight as to why? Hopefully LG is getting the messae and will release a fix soon...

LG demonstrated a working version of their improved BFI on the 2019 models only to pull it at the last minute due to some unspecified hardware problem. So I would not take it as a given that 4K/120 or full range VRR will work properly until I am actually using it on my own TV.

Sorry for coming off as a jerk if I did. Long morning hah.

Not sure why some are and some aren’t. That still has me a bit worried that it’s not an all thing as you stated.

Yeah, I get the once a month hiccup for sure, but unfortunately 3x in 2 hours and one freezing the entire TV is a bit much.

FWIW, watched a few episodes of Arrested Development on Xbox One X thru Netflix - no issues whatsoever.

What else have you done to isolate the issue to your C9? How chatty is your network? Perhaps the C9 is adding to the chattiness? How are you connected--wireless, wired straight to the router, is there a switch in the path? Speed/duplex/auto? What did your captures reveal? Are you using Wireshark or something on your router (tcp dump)? Bandwidth at the modem is nice but are you truly getting 500mbs from devices on your LAN? Any application bandwidth priority enabled? QoS? Do the dropouts happen randomly? Just so many questions to ask. I hope you understand. I'm a security architect.

I own an LG 65" C9. I'm thrilled with it.

That's an excellent way to 'prove' the issue is with the TV streaming apps - if streamng the same apps through other platforms for display on the LG C9 OLED does not suffer from the same issue, the finger is pointed a
squarely at LG's streaming apps.

FWIW, I sometimes stream through a FireStickTV4K and have approximately the same frequency of freezes there as through my 65C6 (another reason I guess I've always assumed the issue had sonething to do with my internet service, though I do have 1Gbps fiber internet...).

I'm at work at the moment, but thank you i will try this.

I use in a dark room so not too worried if it's dimmer, at the moment i use OLED 50 and contrast 90 - i will try these, thanks again.

Main differences between C8 and C9:
.
  • HDMI 2.1 - four full 48Gbps ports
  • 1440p resolution support (gamers only or for people who use tv as a monitor)
  • VRR with 40Hz-120Hz range (gamers only)
  • eARC adds support for bitstreaming HD audio (Dolby TrueHD, TrueHD+Atmos, DTS-HD HR, DTS-HD MA & DTS:X
  • HDCP 2.3 supported only after the mid-2019 firmware update
  • ALLM (Auto Low Latency Mode) (gamers only)
  • Variable Analog Audio Out (3.5mm headphone jack)
  • improved color volume
  • expanded calibration options
  • improved temporary image retention
  • screen is less darkened for news channels that have icons, banners, etc. (less aggressive ABL)
  • significantly improved input lag for many resolutions/refresh rates (under 7ms at 120Hz, gamers only)
  • metal stand instead of plastic, larger footprint, more stable
  • improved WebOS (version 4.5, runs smoother, plus a few more options)
  • Google Assistant support
  • Amazon Alexa support (only after May 2019 03.60.02 firmware update)
  • Apple AirPlay 2 and Apple HomeKit support (only after the mid-2019 firmware update)
  • Connect/control various Internet of Things devices
  • improved motion handling
  • improved black crush
  • possibly better at avoiding burn-in, time will tell (less relevant for non-gamers and non-news watchers)

Known problems for C9
  • eARC - does not pass-through 6/8 channel LPCM, only 2.0 channel LPCM - the C9 can be forced to accept 8ch LPCM with an EDID adapter - LG has been informed, waiting for a resolution;
  • eARC - the 2017 eARC compatible models of Denon+Marantz receivers are not negotiating more than 2.0 LPCM (Stereo), no HD bistreaming, Denon AVR-X3400H, X4400H, X6400H, Marantz SR7012, the C9 can be forced with an EDID adapter to accept more formats - this is NOT the LG's fault, but Denon/Marantz fault;
  • eARC - eARC is disabled with SimpLink/CEC=OFF on the TV | ?bug or "feature"?;
  • Wi-Fi - the C9 will lose the wireless connection and you have to reconnect daily (wired is stable) - ?induced by a particular firmware or condition?;
  • Audio - random return to internal speakers instead of the previously configured ARC/eARC | triggers: on Power ON, on source switch | affected firmware: 03.60.04;
  • Internal apps - (example: Netflix) do not pass-through HD audio via eARC, but lossy formats such as DD+Atmos work (This is also a known problem with the eARC Sony TVs.), must use an HDMI source for HD Audio;
  • USB - WebOS media player does not pass-through HD audio via eARC, but lossy formats such as DD+Atmos work, must use an HDMI source for HD Audio;
  • DLNA - unable to pass-through HD audio via eARC, must use an HDMI source for HD Audio;


Updated list for known AVRs vs C9 eARC

AVRs known to work with C9 eARC

- Pioneer VSX-LX503 - 2018 - requires CEC=ON on the receiver for eARC to work)
- Denon AVR-X3500H - 2018
- Denon AVR-4500H - 2018 - eARC works (ignoring the TV Audio setup) with CEC=OFF and ARC=OFF on Denon and eARC=ON on C9 (also works about the same with the 2018 Sony A9F/AF9 OLED eARC TV, with CEC=OFF on both and ARC=OFF on Denon)
- Denon AVR-X6500H - 2018
- Yamaha RX-V685 - 2018 - (requires CEC=ON on the receiver for eARC to work)

- Denon AVR-S750H - 2019 - (requires SimpLink=ON on the C9 and HDMI Control=ON on the S750H for eARC to work, but with the TV Audio setup?)
- Denon AVR-X1600H - 2019 - (also works with 2019 Sony X950G eARC TV)


AVRs not working with C9 eARC
- Denon AVR-X3400H - 2017
- Denon AVR-X4400H - 2017 - (on TV Audio is capable of only Stereo with the 2018 Sony A9F/AF9 OLED eARC TVs internal apps, HD audio does pass-through!);
- Denon AVR-X6400H - 2017 - (on TV Audio is capable of only Stereo with the C9);
- Marantz SR7012 - 2017 - (also no HD audio with the 2018 Sony A9F/AF9 OLED eARC TVs internal apps/Plex)



Thanks to all that contributed!

Just wanna say that this is a fantastic post and a fine example of the sort of thing that should probably be in the original post. I'm still in the process of researching AVRs, and having a list of units that are known to work with each respective manufacturer's implementation of eARC is a great place to start. If there's anything I can contribute to this, there's been rumblings about audio lag causing significant audio / video sync issues when using arc/eARCover on the rtings forum, https://www.rtings.com/tv/discussion...-over-arc-earc , and the LG community forum, https://lgcommunity.us.com/discussio...-dolby-sources , where a rep has responded and escalated the issue already. This can cause problems when you want to use a device that supports a feature not available on your AVR (such as ALLM or VRR)

Audio – 8-ch I2S for microphone array applications over M2. connector


I don't even know what it is, i think it's like a mini PC (raspberry PI type thing)\

Or is it just a convenient spelling mistake? to show up on google hdmi2.1 results.

There is also schematics and datasheets on the device posted here https://docs.khadas.com/vim3/HardwareDocs.html - if anyone knowledgeable could examine it?

My 65" C9 is on the way. Can't wait to test it out. I'm coming from a Panasonic 60" UT50 plasma, and I've had an X900F for few weeks I've not been satisfied with. The X900F does a lot of things right, but the loss of ANSI contrast coming from the plasma was a deal breaker, not to mention the blooming even in SDR at minimum brightness.

I've never seen an OLED and I've never experienced HDR (haven't bothered with the X900F), so I'm looking forward to some wow moments.

Wow it's in the specifications (not a typo)

https://dl.khadas.com/Hardware/VIM3/...VIM3_Specs.pdf

It lists HDMI2.1 transmitter with 3D, Dynamic HDR, CEC and HDCP 2.2 support

It's happening !!

In the A311D datasheets, this caught my attention:

Video Output
• Built-in HDMI 2.1 transmitter including both controller and PHY with CEC, Dynamic HDR and
HDCP 2.2, [email protected] max resolution output


That resolution limit implies HDMI 2.0b bandwidth.

Not sure why some are and some aren’t. That still has me a bit worried that it’s not an all thing as you stated.

Yeah, I get the once a month hiccup for sure, but unfortunately 3x in 2 hours and one freezing the entire TV is a bit much.

FWIW, watched a few episodes of Arrested Development on Xbox One X thru Netflix - no issues whatsoever.
I watched the 4k HDR title called "Happy Death Day 2U" yesterday on Vudu and had no issues at all. I hear Vudu is the most problematic streaming app with the LG TVs.

lol just watched the standard Blu Ray of that last weekend, having enjoyed the first one. Looked pretty good for budget horror. (Rented via Netflix DVD service)

Worked out an amazing way to make Chrome not blind you while HDR windows is on on the C9

You can force colour profile in chrome to scRGB linear (HDR where available)


chrome://flags/#force-color-profile into chrome browser

Sounds like a much more serious issue than the ~once-a-month dropouts I experience when streaming on my 65C6.

Are all owners experiencing this issue or only a subset? If a subset, any insight as to why? Hopefully LG is getting the messae and will release a fix soon...
Very weird. We do a lot of streaming and I can’t recall this being an issue with the 3 services we use, Netflix, Amazon & Hulu. Now we have had very occasional freezes on Directv, but that behavior is mirrored on our other TVs and is something I’ve seen over the years with that service.

It’s odd that some are having this issue and others aren’t.
