I turned on VRR in XBox and connected directly to C9.

I played Gear 5 and did not noticed any diff. Did I miss anything?

Ahh good catch. That would make sense based on what I’️m seeing. The actual video content is harder to see. Maybe it’️s in my head but I swear the picture is brighter with internal apps lol

I don’️t have the tv in front of me. Is the menu gamut locked on Wide? I know I set all modes (when possible) to Auto.
From what I can tell when the actual tv show/ movie starts playing it will set the correct color gamut. I’m not sure about brightness. I tend to use the Apple TV these days to avoid the lip sync issues with some internal apps.

You probably have set it all up right and haven't missed anything. Most console games have a capped frame rate and run at 30fps or 60fps. Digital Foundry found Gears runs at 60fps pretty consistently. As the frame rate isn't fluctuating then there is little benefit of VRR. In short, I don't think you'll notice any difference in this scenario.

Neither, those are not the only two options.

The HDMI2.0 maximum bandwidth precludes it being possible so there's no need/value in investigating more. Perhaps both the nVidia video card and the C9 (with HDMI2.1) may well be capable but it's definitely not possible with HDMI2.0. Look at the HDMI2 link in my sig for a table.

Hi, Do all Oled panels have some degree of screen tint? My panel (E9) seems to have a horizontal orange tint along the bottom and is a bit distracting as I find I'm always on the look out for it. Any thoughts please. Also would it get beeter over time? The really terrible uniformity pic was when I first got the panel and the other pic was after 3 weeks of use. Thanks

That is not how it works. Youtube creates SDR video from ANY HDR! If you are watching it on SDR device, it will show you SDR. But you can download it in HDR VP9.2 with youtube-dl.

Agree with Ivan. However, I did notice in COD:MW some screen tearing only in very few scenes and situations. Once I realized that I had turned off VRR by accident and put it back on, I did not notice the tearing. Its hard to notice VRRs benefits, but it is there. And once you see tearing on any of your games without VRR, its hard to miss after that.

The 4 I tried all did. Finally settled on a 55” that was much better than the 65” ones I tried.

I’ve had the c9 for a couple of weeks now and for the most part I like it.
Just wondering how many here turn up their brightness level to overcome the black crush.
The one thing that bothers me about the tv is the lack of detail in dark scenes. Pure black looks fantastic in deep space, but I somehow feel it seems unnatural in the folds of people shirts on a regular sitcom.
I don’t know how anybody could use bt.1886 gamma because that in my experience is terrible for dark scenes.
So far I settled on gamma 2.2 with brightness set to 52. Though still missing dark detail. Need to pump brightness up to upper fifties to show all detail, but then that washes out bright scenes.

going any higher than 53 brightness = blacks wont be black so not worth it. i use BT 1886 for ISF dark room and love it. are you new to OLED?

Yes this is my first OLED. I did notice that above 52 pure black is a little greyer, that is why I settled on 52.
Not sure if this is an accurate way of checking, but using the tv’s internal browser I pulled up lagom black level calibration image and I can’t get bars one through five to differ from pure black.
Btw I’m happy to report my screen uniformity is near perfect.

Are 55" C9s is it in general a better chance of getting good uniformity, low tint on a white screen than the 65" C9s then?

Easy way to check if your black is black. In a dark room with no lights on and at night, start the internal youtube app and play 10 hours HD black screen. Let your eyes adjust for a few minutes. Raise brightness until you see the black screen glow, then lower 1 click at a time until screen is black again, and that will be your brightness setting. That is a simple way to set brightness correctly.

I did something similar. Last night a sub channel was broadcasting a black screen. Brightness 49 and below was pure black as soon as I hit 50 I see a little light, 51 is the same, then just a little more at 52 and 53, But it’s still very dark. I almost feel if things only change after two points.
I guess I’m just a little surprised I don’t see more talk on this thread about the loss of dark details.
To me it’s a very noticeable deficiency.

This may seem like an odd question. I've had my C9 for a little over 2 months now and maybe it was a placebo effect, but running games at like lets say 1080P or 2560x1440 looked really good up close the upscaling was doing a great job. After the last firmware update even 2560x1140 has noticeable artifacts that I didn't see before, my PC can reasonable run the games I play at 4K with decent settings, but I was really enjoying the 120Hz action I was receiving before.


Has anyone else noticed any such problems? Or is it all in my head?

Haven't posted on this forum in years...

Purchased my 65" C9 this past weekend at Best Buy. Spent the better part of tonight watching test patterns & adjusting settings in attempts to tease out any issues, as well as do an "eyeball calibration".

Looks like I got a pretty damn good panel compared to my prior experiences w/ embarrassingly bad samples from two different 55EG9600's back in 2015 (That I ended up returning for a Sony XBR-55X850C that I've been using ever since, pretty happily). On the LG 65C9: No perceivable vertical banding or uniformity issues at useful "illumination intensity" settings. Only until I set "OLED Light" to 0 w/ a 5% or less greyscale image, some gradual / low spacial frequency horizontal uniformity issues are just barely noticeable if you look for it.

The ONLY thing I did notice w/ proper picture settings & actual content, is VERY slight increase in brightness, as well as a chromaticity shift along the edges of the panel during uniformly bright / saturated scenes (Approx 1.5" inward from the edge, all around, especially in the corners). You really have to be looking for it, but it's noticeably there, even if I get up to move my eyes to be perpendicular to that section of screen to remove off axis shift as a factor... It's like the opposite of a good quality backlight LCD; where on LCD panels, the brightness reduces at the far edges & colors become more saturated (not noticeable unless you look for it, but it's clearly there). I'm guessing this is "normal" / typical of LG's OLED panels? Has anyone seen this get worse over time?

Either way, pretty damn happy with this particular sample, especially considering my previous HIGHLY disappointing experience with OLED technology. Hopefully it's indicative of a mature manufacturing process / QA process, where embarrassingly bad panels are few & far between these days.

I do wonder how well the TV is going to hold up over time to being shaken to hell by my subs, that have loosened the dry wall from the studs & cracked the nearby window before...

Here is a video of the vertical banding on my 65 inch c9 when playing sea of thieves (if possible watch it in 4k). This is the worst case in terms of banding I have ever seen while gaming. Would you say that this banding is worse than on your sets? (this question is especially relevant for people who play lots of games on the c9 as many games do not show this degree of vertical banding)

Hi, I haven't checked what Apple TV 4K is doing, but the users can see what framerate their TV's is receiving from HDMI Input by entering to LG's Hidden Diagnostics Menu.

But you can't see what is the content native framerate if its been used a streaming provider for such content evaluation.

The best method is to use a stand-alone player with a blu-ray disk for example where you are sure about the content frame rate for such evaluations.

Thanks @ConnecTEDDD . I take it then that you have never experienced Real Cinema doing any interpolation or otherwise degrading the quality or causing artifacts?

With 24p content and Real Cinema ON, I haven't seen any problem or interpolation.

Thanks for that hidden diagnostic link. Works great on both my 2015 and 2016 LG OLED tv's.

Hi everyone! Ordered a 55c9 a couple days ago, but been reading this thread on and off since the tread was created.

I will mainly drive the set with a PC for movies, games, amd rx580, 7.1 setup via a Denon x1200w AVR (ARC, hdcp 2.2, HDMI2.0), an hdcp 1.4 only PC monitor will still be connected as a second screen.

I want to keep using 7.1 (and not 5.1 via ARC or Optical), my understanding is that I will either need to upgrade to an eARC compatible AVR or buy a 400$ HD fury thing... (I can't justify such purchase right now to the missus, that's for sure)

I'm pretty sure I read somewhere I could wire the 2nd HDMI port on my gpu to my AVR (just for sound), lowering the display resolution on that "screen" and choose the AVR as default device for sound in windows and still get 7.1... DO I need to hack the EDID of the AVR on windows so it is recognized as a second/third screen of something ? will I be able to retain HDR on the C9 (and VRR/Highter framerates when HDMI 2.1 card come) with a not HDR capable second screen and and avr with EDID hacked to act as a screen ?

Any pointers on that front would be greatly appreciated, thanks a lot


this won't solve PS4 pro (for BD/games) loosing 2 channels but that's a start at least.

Do you know which firmware update your on? North America have the most recent firmware but the EU are still on 04.07.05.
I presume your using Aspect Ratio scaling mode and then preforming the scaling on 'display'. If so then a firmware update could increase or decrease the quality of the scaling. Personally I have not noticed a change but have been on firmware 04.07.05 for almost two months.

What I have noticed is that some games scale excellently from 1440p and others have really issues with anti aliasing and shimmering edges. Destiny 2 is a good example whereby at 1440p, shimmering lines are not corrected by either the games MSAA or FXAA. The shimmering is increased by playing in HDR.

Red Dead Redemption 2 and Borderlands 3 scale very well with a minimal loss in visual fidelity and minimal artefacts.

So it could placebo or you changing games but could also be a change in firmware. Interested to see if anyone else has noticed a change.

Yuck. I'm sorry about that. That looks terrible.

That's really bad, man. Sorry to see it.

Assuming that your settings are in the range of reasonable, I suggest that you return this panel immediately, especially if you have >200 hours on it.

I had "some" very minor banding on mine at first. After around 175-225 +/- hours, it became all but non-existant. And I can never see it in any content, SDR, HDR, or other. I do not game, so I can't say if I would see it in that application.

Hey guys!

Just got my 77" C9 and trying to figure out how I can use g-sync with no issues, and still get lossless multi channel PCM to my surround system.
I have a Geforce RTX 2080 Ti GPU, but only one HDMI port, three Display Ports, and one VirtualLink port.
My AVR is an Onkyo TX-NR656.

What are my options? Please come with as many solutions as possible. That would be most appreciated. Thanks a lot in advance.
