Super Bowl in 4k?

I've been reading about options for watching the Super Bowl in 4K. From my understanding, Fox is filming the game with 1080p cameras and then upconverting to 4k HDR for streaming through their Fox Sports app. With my current setup of c9 and xfinity, I would receive the signal as 720p (Fox's signal) and my TV will convert to 4K without HDR.



I have a 4K Roku stick being used elsewhere that I could move to the c9 to pick up the 4K stream. It's a little bit of a pain to move but could be done. Any guesses on the picture difference? I do have a fast internet connection. Thanks. Art


PS: I posted this here because I think our c9's do a great job of upconverting.

Besides, unless you have a way to actually view the LUT (specific software), there is absolutely no data you would be able to find from it to share, and no way for anyone else to load it to their TV without the aforementioned specific software to convert to a different format and a special browser based connection to load it to the TV.

LUT calibrations are completely different to manual calibrations where the data can (but probably shouldn't) be shared.

I just like tweaking/experimenting. thanks.

I was just letting the other user know that there isn't anything he can share, because the LG's are calibrated using LUT's not manual adjustments. That doesn't prevent you from tweaking and/or experimenting.

With regards to the i1 Display Pro Plus, it is not currently "officially" supported by any third party software. There have been some reports in various calibration threads with users saying it works, but again, it isn't officially supported, yet.

However, the i1 Display Pro Plus is the exact same probe as the OEM version in every way, only the OEM is officially supported in all major calibration software solutions. The only limitation is it will not work with X-Rite i1Profiler.

I personally would go with the OEM version unless you specifically require use of the i1Profiler software. The OEM can also be found cheaper than the Retail Pro Plus.

Holy cow - I just had LionAV calibrate my 77" C9. It's beyond fantastic now. I can't recommend LionAV highly enough. (He also calibrated my B6 in 2016, and it still has a great picture)

And, no, I don't get a referral fee or any discounts.

Yeah, I talked to Gregg a few times. He does in fact appear extremely knowledgeable and I have no doubt he did right by you. The one thing I was taken aback by was that he - unlike any other professional calibrator I'm aware of (and I've talked to quite a number) - wants/demands a payment made *in advance* via the web form on his site. Besides that, I've read nothing but positive things about his service(s).

Xfinity has confirmed they will be sending out the UHD feed. You obviously need a 4k capable box though. Not sure if you can see the 4k feed via Xfinity Stream because I haven't checked into it. Although it's not as crisp as the Fox Sports feed, it isn't terrible either. Assuming, of course it will be the same kind of quality as the NCAA games of recent.

The fee is relatively small. I think it’s to make sure clients are serious. When you’re traveling hours by car or paying for flights, I think it’s a sensible practice. He isn’t cheap, but you don’t take a Porsche to Jiffy Lube either.

paying for stuff upfront is tricky cause you can lose certain protections from method of payment used. paypal has treated me very well over the years for protections.

Do you have the 4k DVR box from Xfinity?

Hi everyone, I’m thinking of purchasing the 65 C9 soon and just wanted to see if there is anyone out there who is NOT experiencing raised blacks when viewing Dolby Vision content through the Apple TV 4K. I have a B7 which used to have this exact issue prior to a software update but some of the experiences I’ve heard worry me since the Apple TV is my go to box for everything.

I understand that the raised blacks apparently don’t occur when using the TV apps but I would prefer to not have to do that all the time.

Thanks!!

No, I don't have the new 4K box. I've been waiting for a need to switch and this is the first 4K event I've been interested in. The person at Comcast told me that the Summer Olympics will be in 4K. I'm a little concerned about using up my allotted data. My current plan allows 1TB per month and with watching mostly HD stuff with some 4K, I'm using about 500gb per month. Does anyone know if watching 4K material through the cable box counts against the data limit. I know that watching a 4K movie on Netflix uses up quite a bit, maybe 50 gb? (I know this is off topic)

Watching On Demand and Live TV doesn't affect your data cap. If you sign up for XFI Advantage for 20 a month and you have a speed package of 300mbps or higher you get unlimited data a month. If you just got unlimited data on your account for any speed package it is $50 additional dollars for unlimited. This isn't the same as AT&T where you pay for unlimited but reach 20GB over and they start slowing your speed down.

I bet that's a slippery slope. Calibrators do have a rough life. Kinda like being a truck driver in ways.

Next time I get a TV I should do my due dilligence since I was not aware of either issue at the time of purchase. Oops!
That should fade more over time. You do have you warranty as well if you wanted to get a new screen......

My 8 year old (mid-range) Samsung started showing stripes in the middle of the screen that were visible during almost all content so I've had a lot of months to stare myself blind and become an expert at detecting irregularities. I've always been a bit of a perfectionist, I doubt my wife notices anything! By "regular content" in this case I mean stress-test scenes during shows like dark scenes, fog, etc. The typical problematic ones. Otherwise the screen is just fine but I'm a bit bummed out for sure and was expecting more from this panel. I don't care much for uniformity, in this case though it's unfortunate that the line is so well defined rather than a fade.

Lets hope so! I'm past the 30 day return date so I'll wait until closer to the 6th month mark before getting in contact with the store to claim it as a defect since then the proof of burden is still on them. And if they don't take it, then I can try warranty with LG! Might run a Pixel Refresh around that time as well but it's way too soon now and I doubt it'll do much tbh, I've read quite the oppossite in fact.

Thx for the input!

Help me understand Custom Resolutions in Nvidia Control Panel.

My intention is to setup a custom 21:9 format resolution, 3840 pixels wide, 1446 pixels tall, and run it in 4:2:0 (or is it 4:2:2) in order to be able to reach a frame rate of 120hz over HDMI 2.0 from a 2080 Super to the C9.

But when creating a custom resolution I'm not able to select 4:2:0, and simply creating the resolution and testing in 120hz fails. Have I gotten the bandwidth calculation wrong?


EDIT: looks like I have calculated wrong. According to https://k.kramerav.com/support/bwcalculator.asp 3840x1446x120HZx8bit = 19.97 Gbps, and HDMI 2 can max handle 15 Gbps raw data as I understand?

When I get home I will instead try to make a 32:9 resolution of 3840x1080x120HZx8bit which should be 14.9 Gbps and within the capabilities of HDMI 2.0

It's not just a question of bandwidth but if the TV (in this case the C9) supports the resolution. It doesn't. You're limited to 1440p if you want 120Hz refresh rate. For 2160p @120 Hz with 4:2:0 you need an upcoming CX as those have been confirmed to support said resolution (which I believe is not part of the supported resolutions of HDMI 2.0 which is why GPU and TV must support them individually).

What does it mean that the TV doesn't support the resolution? Because it can run [email protected] just fine.

[edit]Sorry, I misread your post as wanting to do 4K at 120Hz, not a custom resolution.

I'd wager the TV only allows 2560 x 1440 at 120Hz and everything above 2560 is limited to 60Hz, but this is just an assumption on my part. But since the 4K 120hz resolution via 4:2:0 needs specific support from the TV, a [email protected] resolutions might need specific support as well.

Ugh okay I see, so it specifically needs to support subsampling at odd resolution/frame rate combinations.

One more question to you Would I be able to do the overclocking thing and run 3840 x 1446 @ 67hz?

For 2160p @120 Hz with 4:2:0 you need an upcoming CX as those have been confirmed to support said resolution (which I believe is not part of the supported resolutions of HDMI 2.0 which is why GPU and TV must support them individually).
As far as i remember LG already confirmed an update for 2020 where the c9 support 4k at 120hz but only with hdmi 2.1 devices.
CX will also do it with hdmi 2.0 graphics cards somehow.

Sorry to ask, isn't it better to just stick to 2560 x 1440 at 120Hz? I think it looks amazing and you get the 120 Hz advantage in games.

Apologies, I should have clarified - The CX will support 4K at 120Hz via HDMI 2.0 and chroma subsampling of 4:2:0 (which afaik is not a specified resolution in HDMI 2.0) and therefore work with current HDMI 2.0 GPUs that also support this resolution via HDMI (nvidia Turing for instance). The C9 will only support 4K 120Hz via the upcoming HDMI 2.1 update which will also require a HDMI 2.1 GPU of which there currently are none available.

You can always try, I haven't tried this specific resolution and overclocking is always a bit of a gamble I believe. If it doesn't work you can always go back to the last working resolution.

My goal is to get as much horizontal FOV and resolution as I can, for the purpose of racing sims. Horizontal FOV isn't as useful as I only need enough to cover from top of the car's dashboard to top of window basically.

This is how I run my setup and I mostly game with the C9 I played in 4k last night 3840x2160 60Hz I couldn't see much of difference from 2560x1440 120Hz. GSYNC is enabled, but I haven't installed the latest driver for my 2080Ti to now set the max frame rate. From NVIDIA forums the driver seems to be crippling a lot of users PC's causing all kinds of headaches so i'm holding off.

I have had no issues with either resolution and have had the C9 55 since last week. I have a ROG Asus 2080Ti 9900k

The 5.0 is here

I understand that the raised blacks apparently don’t occur when using the TV apps but I would prefer to not have to do that all the time.



Thanks!!


I got my 65” C9 the week they launched back in April. Originally I had some raised black issues on various content, including 4K discs. They’ve fixed the issue as far as I can tell in the various updates since. I still notice raised blacks from time to time, but it’s always inherent in the content now. When/if you get your set, make sure you demo a bunch of different scenes and media types before you decide whether or not you’re seeing raised blacks. But as far as I can tell, it’s fixed.
