2020 LG OLED CX-GX Owner's Thread + FAQ (Posts 1-6) - No Price Talk

This thread is only for LG OLED TV models CX and GX.

Links to LG website:

US - LG GX 77 inch Class with Gallery Design 4K Smart OLED TV w/AI ThinQ® (76.7'' Diag)
US - OLED65GXPUA - not published
US - OLED55GXPUA - not published
US - OLED77CXPUA - not published
US - LG CX 65 inch Class 4K Smart OLED TV w/ AI ThinQ® (64.5'' Diag)
US - OLED55CXPUA - not published
US - OLED48CXPUB - not published

The E series was not refreshed in 2020.

The WX (Wallpaper), ZX (8K-Gallery style) and RX (Rollable) models will be treated in their own threads.


The new features and differences between the 2019 C9 and the 2020 CX:

  • WOLED panel stack improvements - change from the B-YG/R-B stack to the B-G/R-B stack - allows for more saturated colors and increased color gamut/volume (mainly on the Green) - unconfirmed;
  • DCI-P3 improvements - gamut increase from 99% DCI-P3 to 100% DCI-P3 - unconfirmed, waiting tests;
  • Rec.2020 improvements - gamut increase from <85% to >85% Rec.2020 - unconfirmed, waiting tests;
  • built-in G-SYNC Compatibility (inherited from C9) - no firmware update required - will be supported across four 2020 model ranges (BX, CX, GX and ZX);
  • built-in HGiG Mode (inherited from C9) - no firmware update required;
  • new AMD FreeSync compatibility - available via a future firmware upgrade at the end of 2020 - unknown if FreeSync will be made available to the C9;
  • new Filmmaker Mode - Auto/Manual - disables certain post-processing effects (such as motion smoothing, noise reduction, and sharpening) while perfectly preserving correct aspect ratios, colors and frame rates - the Filmmaker Mode feature will be accessible via a button on the remote control;
  • new Dolby Vision IQ support - "optimal picture quality as the creatives intended, no matter the ambient light environment or content genre" - Dolby Vision IQ isn't a separate picture mode, instead it will be automatically engaged in the standard Dolby Vision setting (Dolby said if you don't want the image to react to room lighting you can disable the LG's ambient light sensor manually);
  • new video processor - 'Alpha 9 Gen 3' - reportedly has a CPU 15% faster than Gen 2, and the GPU is 50% faster than Gen 2 - aka O20 (instead of the O18 chip used in the C8 and C9);
  • new 4K/120Hz 8-bit SDR 4:2:0 support via HDMI 2.0;
  • new 48" screen size available besides the now-classic 55, 65 and 77;
  • new G series model - Gallery OLED - as GX - "a whole different level with an ultra-thin form factor – the 65-inch model is a mere 20 millimeters (0.79 inches) thin" - replacing the E series that it will not be refreshed;
  • new 'Eye Comfort Display' certification from TÜV Rheinland as they are flicker-free (in SDR and HDR) and offer adjustability for blue light content.
  • new built-in hardware AV1 decoding (thanks to the new O20 chip);
  • new Apple TV app support - but the app will be available also for 2019 and 2018 LG TVs;
  • new GX series and up will offer hands-free voice control;
  • new version of WebOS 5.0 - some new features are already listed here;
  • new 'Sports Alert' feature - "to keep track of their favorite teams and schedules and notifying them as soon as a team scores"
  • new "Auto Genre Selection" feature - the TV recognizes the type of content being played, be it a movie, sports or an animation, and adjusts the picture processing to suit.
  • The Home Dashboard has been cleaned up to make it easier to understand and arrange all your connected smart devices.
  • new 'Who? Where? What?' feature - only on US models - it’s powered by The Take.AI, an image and video recognition technology that uses artificial intelligence to allow the TV to highlight various elements of the content you're watching in real-time - it can tell you the location of a specific film scene or what coat or dress an actor or actress is wearing;
  • new Face Enhancing - feature taken from the ZX/RX models - not much is known about it;
  • Input lag is down to 5 ms with 120Hz input, according to LG;
  • HDMI-VRR range should be 40 to 120Hz for both G-sync and FreeSync;
  • HDMI-QMS should work but it's not certified yet;
  • new "Motion Pro" and "Cinema Clear" features - 120Hz BFI with three settings (High/Medium/Low) - with the biggest benefit that 120Hz BFI improves near-black uniformity by ~50% without any 60Hz flicker (like on C9) - sounds like more or less the same implementation that was reported for the 2019 models but that got pulled in the 11th hour;
  • Panel dimming algorithm has been tweaked;
  • No WebOS 5.0 update planned for previous models (as usual for LG...);
  • ATSC 3.0 tuner is available only on the new GX series and up;
  • Tone mapping enhancements - (compared with a C9 side by side) more intensity in small bright HDR light peaks, and daylight shots that look brighter for longer across the whole screen and better black levels during dark scenes - deep blacks seem to be delivered without crushing out much shadow detail;
  • AI Picture Pro - tweaked to do much less with native 4K sources that don’t really need much "help";
  • AI Sound Pro - tweaked to enhance vocal clarity and placement;
  • The DTS-HD internal decoder was removed;

Firmware Changelog

Known firmware versions:
- x.x.x


Expected/Announced features to be delivered via firmware updates:
  • 5.1/7.1 LPCM passthrough via eARC - will be available via firmware update in Q2-2020 (~ June 2020) at the same time with the C9
  • AMD FreeSync compatibility - will be available via a future firmware upgrade at the end of 2020
  • HDCP 2.3 - the CX is still at HDCP 2.2 level - HDCP 2.3 will be available via a future firmware update, probably at the same time with the C9

Features that will never be delivered via firmware updates:
  • WebOS apps support for lossless audio - there will be no WebOS app support for lossless HD audio soundtracks such as TrueHD, TrueHD+Atmos, DTS-HD HR, DTS-HD MA or DTS:X - this is the same situation as for the 2019 models; The Alpha9 SoC has only an ARC capable audio output, so it cannot send lossless audio back to the receiver/soundbar, even if they are eARC capable, firmware updates cannot modify hardware limitations;

FAQ - Frequently Asked Questions

Release/Launch/Prices

Q: When we expect to know the prices of 2020 models?
A: The MSRP prices are usually mentioned during the usual April launch event. The first available prices were available in Germany, on 4 March 2020, earlier than usual, as mentioned below. The US MSRP prices were made available by 16 March 2020, mentioned below.

Q: When we expect the first reviews?
A: LG usually has an April launch event - units are sent to reviewers at the same time. So the first reviews are expected sometime during April-May. The March 2020 Los Angeles launch event was canceled by the coronavirus epidemic, and the 2020 models were soft-launched and the first models (mostly 55" CXs) are already delivered in March 2020, with reviews starting to appear towards the end of March.

Q: When we expect the lowest prices for 2020 models?
A: The price evolution is similar each year and you can see the graph in the "TV yearly-price-tv-deals price evolution.png" attachment.

Q: When we expect the first 2020 models to be available?
A: The 2020 models will be on the market earlier than the 2019 models (US launch date was 11 March 2020, but no prices mentioned). In the US, the expected launch dates are (for Value Electronics), in order of the release:
  • 55" + 65" CX early March
  • 55" + 65" GX end of March
  • 77" CX mid-April
  • 88" ZX mid-April
  • 77" GX end of April
  • 77" ZX early May
  • 48" CX late May

Q: What are the official US launch prices (MSRP) and availability dates for the CX-GX 2020 models?
A: Prices were published by LG on 16 March 2020
OLED77GXPUA - $5,999 - Available April 2020
OLED65GXPUA - $3,499 - Available April 2020
OLED55GXPUA - $2,499 - Available April 2020

OLED77CXPUA - $4,999 - Available May 2020
OLED65CXPUA - $2,799 - Available April 2020
OLED55CXPUA - $1,799 - Available March 2020
OLED48CXPUB - $1,499 - Available June 2020

A table with launch prices is also attached to this post as "LG 2020 4K OLED - suggested retail prices - flatpanelshd.png"


Display

Q: What is Dolby Vision IQ?
A: Dolby rolled out a new augmentation to its Dolby Vision HDR format called Dolby Vision IQ, which is designed to fix the problem that in some situations it can look too dark by automatically adjusting the picture in response to room brightness. Dolby Vision IQ isn't a separate picture mode, instead, it will be automatically engaged in the standard Dolby Vision setting (Dolby said if you don't want the image to react to room lighting you can disable the LG's ambient light sensor manually);

Q: What is Filmmaker Mode?
A: UHD Alliance's Filmmaker Mode is a separate mode designed to offer a picture that "maintains the creative intent" by disabling stuff like the soap opera effect. Filmmaker Mode does not exclude Dolby Vision HDR. Filmmaker Mode mode works by "disabling all post-processing (e.g. motion smoothing, etc.) and preserving the correct aspect ratios, colors and frame rates". Filmmaker Mode can be enabled in one of two ways: either automatically or with a dedicated button on the remote. To work automatically, the content itself needs metadata that tells the TV to turn on the mode, and for that to happen service providers like Netflix and Apple iTunes need to be on board.

Q: What is the purpose of the Pixel Refresh function?
A: Regardless of what you may have read or told, the main purpose of the Pixel Refresh function is NOT to minimize the Image Retention or Burn-In effects. The fact that Pixel Refresh has an effect on the Image Retention or Burn-In is a positive side-effect, but NOT the main purpose of this function. The main Pixel Refresh function purpose is to deal with the natural unevenness of the brightness of the OLED pixels in time. That unevenness needs to be leveled so the panel has the same brightness all over its surface so that the entire panel ages in a uniform manner. There is no need to manually run Pixel Refresh, just let the TV execute this function automatically!

Q: How often should I run the Pixel Refresh?
A: You should NOT run the Pixel Refresh often, only if you need it, or told so by a qualified person - because the Pixel Refresh function shortens the lifespan of the panel. Pixel Refresh runs automatically at every 2000 hours of content viewing and there is no need for the owner to run Pixel Refresh at other intervals of time, regardless of what you have read on the Internet or told by salespeople.

Q: What Pixel Refresh actually does?
A: In short, a newly-minted OLED panel is powered and each pixel is measured for (1) voltage across OLED cell and (2) current through OLED cell, compared with neighboring pixels and the voltage+current levels are leveled for each pixel so that the panel has good image/brightness uniformity - and then the levels are stored in a non-volatile memory on the panel electronics board (not on the TV mainboard).
That new panel will end up in a new manufactured TV - that TV will be used and, in time, some OLED cells will age differently than the neighboring cells, thus image non-uniformity will start to appear. This is where the Pixel Refresh function enters the arena.
When the Pixel Refresh function is run automatically or manually by the user, it checks voltage+current differences between the stored values and those measured for each OLED pixel and tries to normalize them. The OLED panel has an additional compensation applying circuit for each pixel and a separate sensing IC (Integrated Circuit) that interprets the measured values. Increased current through the cell is associated with OLED cell aging, and an algorithm adjusts the current and voltage to compensate for that aging. The new compensation values are stored separately (in a Flash memory) to the initial ones. The pixels that have very high voltage/current differences are "leveled down" - that results in an even field of pixels across the panel. After the pixels that were "high" are leveled down, the Pixel Refresh brings up the voltage/current back to full brightness without the danger of overdriving the ones that were "high" (the measured/calibrated brightness of the panel will not be affected). The whole Pixel Refresh process is done in vertical batches, which is what causes the panel banding, and why the bands "move" over time. If the Pixel Refresh would not run, the brightness uniformity of the panel would be affected in time - over months of use the panel would just get zones that are dimmer than others. The Pixel Refresh has a big downside, though, it shortens the lifespan of the panel, the operation of leveling down of the voltage/current values is a BIG stress for the panel - this is why you should NOT be using the Pixel Refresh function repeatedly or at short intervals of time (the automatic run at 2000 hours is just enough and it would ensure a long lifespan of the panel).

Q: Are you sure that the Pixel Refresh function will not affect panel brightness?
A: The RTINGS torture tests have proven that the measured/calibrated brightness of the panel will not be affected by the execution of the Pixel Refresh function - even when the Pixel Refresh was run on weekly basis (this is strongly NOT recommended!!!). BUT - there is always a but - since every Pixel Refresh run will shorten the lifespan of the panel, the aging of the panel will accelerate, and the moment that the panel will not be able to maintain the same brightness as it was new will come sooner than if the Pixel Refresh has been run automatically (at each 2000 hours of use). So, the lesson here is the same: do NOT run Pixel Refresh manually - let the TV manage the natural panel aging automatically (by running the Pixel Refresh every 2000 hours of use).

Q: Is there a way to know if Pixel Refresh actually ran after doing a "Start Now"?;
A: 1. It is NOT advisable to manually run Pixel Refresh without some serious reason - such as:
  • big panel non-uniformity (may be experienced as DSE - Dirty Screen Effect)
  • splotches of brighter/darker content (may be experienced as clouding)
  • vertical banding seen in the content
  • other types of panel non-uniformity
2. You will see a notification when the Pixel Refresh cycle has completed or was interrupted.
3. The Pixel Refresh process is logged internally and can be seen in the Service Menu.
4. The Pixel Refresh cycle will take significantly longer time - 20-30 minutes or more - duration depends on how much pixels are affected by uneven aging.
5. The Pixel Refresh cycle has a limited effect on panel Burn-In and the Pixel Refresh will not completely "cure" an already Burned-In panel.
6. Please read this FAQ for more details.

Q: My panel was replaced - but the UTT wasn't reset - anyone knows how to reset?;
A: The UTT Reset function was available in the Service Menu - InStart - System pages, but it was removed long ago (in 2016 or 2017). Now the only way to reset the UTT is by resetting the whole TV to factory settings by entering Service Menu - InStop menu. This will reset everything but the currently installed firmware (there is no factory stored version, so you can't go back). Normally, a panel change will require a reset to factory settings and redoing the calibration (only if the TV was previously calibrated) since the new panel can have different image characteristics versus the old panel.

Q: What are the effects of OLED Motion Pro / BFI on the image (without a 120Hz source)?;
A: In LG CX there are five levels for OLED Motion Pro (Off, Low, Medium, High and Auto).
'Low' will reduce the brightness by 15%.
'Medium' will reduce the brightness by 40%.
'High' will reduce the brightness by 75%.
'Medium' is more effective at increasing motion resolution than 'Low' but brightness obviously takes a more significant hit.
The 'High' setting produces visible flicker and is not recommended for any type of content.
The 'Auto' option varies between 'Low' and 'Medium' but avoids 'High'.
At its two lower settings (Low and Medium) the BFI system is definitely useful now, as opposed to BFI in previous years' OLED TVs, but improved motion resolution comes at the expense of a reduction in brightness that is a little higher.
Also, note that by engaging 'OLED Motion Pro' input lag increases slightly to 22 ms.

Audio

Q: When I play a video with a DTS audio soundtrack via USB I have no audio;
A: The support for DTS/DTS-HD audio was removed on 2020 models;

Known problems

Audio

P: Plex or internal video player do not play lossless audio such as Dolby TrueHD or DTS-HD soundtracks
A: The internal apps do not support lossless audio and that support will not be added - the only way the TV will play lossless audio is via HDMI pass-through from an external source - "LG engineers, have stated that Dolby TrueHD can ONLY be passed through from a connected device - not an app such as Plex. They assert there can be no fix for this as an app is not considered "passthrough" and requires the decoder."; The Alpha9 SoC has only an ARC capable audio output, so it cannot send lossless audio, firmware updates cannot modify hardware limitations;

P: USB media player does not play lossless audio (but lossy Atmos soundtracks work)
A: See the above answer;

P: The internal DLNA service does not play lossless audio
A: See the above answer;

P: The DTS-HD internal decoder was removed
A: -


Display - Video

P: Trumotion is not selectable with G-Sync on, but if you turn G-Sync off, it'll become selectable. When you turn G-Sync back on OLED Motion Pro will stay on.
A: -

P: When in 4k 120hz (4k 120hz 4:2:0 8 bit via HDMI 2.0b GFX card), the bottom and right side of the screen are cut off. Turning off Screen Shift fixes this, but turning the TV off then back on cuts it off again. Screen Shift remains off but it can be fixed by turning it on then off again.
A: -

P: Normally BFI (OLED Motion Pro) isn't selectable with G-Sync on. I turned it off then turned BFI, then turned G-Sync on and they were both working. When restarting my computer I'd have to redo it. Sometimes it takes a couple tries to work.
A: LG never mentioned that BFI and G-Sync should be working together, and most probably it does not work!

Things that future BX owners should know:

Missing features
  • Face Enhancer
  • Frequency-based Sharpness Enhancer (BX has only "Sharpness Enhancer")
  • AI Picture Pro (BX has only "AI Picture")
  • Perfect Color (BX has only "NanoCell Color")
  • True Color Accuracy Pro (BX has only "True Color Accuracy")
  • 4K and 2K playback via USB (BX can play 4K/2K only via HDMI)
  • AI Sound Pro (BX has only "AI Sound")
  • 4 HDMI 2.1 inputs (BX has only 2 HDMI 2.1 + 2 HDMI 2.0)

Limited capabilities
  • Alpha7 gen. 3 SoC (aka M16P3) instead of Alpha9 gen. 3 SoC (aka O20)
  • Lower brightness in HDR/DV (similar to the 2019 B9 model) - needs confirmation
  • HFR limited by the Alpha7 SoC - needs confirmation
  • only two-stage Noise Reduction due to Alpha7 SoC - more image noise with low bandwidth video (Alpha9 has four stages)
  • higher image artifacts due to Alpha7 SoC (especially near-black artifacts and more motion artifacts (flashing, etc.))
  • A smaller 3D LUT container due to Alpha7 SoC (similar to the 2019 B9 model) - this means less accurate 3D LUT calibrations

For me it's only a matter when can I get one of these at a decent price and if I choose a 55" or 65" model.

@dfa973 does the AV1 is really confirmed to the CX series?

Panasonic TX-P42V10E; Onkyo TX-NR808; Xbox One S; Nvidia Shield TV (1st gen); PS3; Cambridge Audio Azur 640C; Logitech Harmony 650
Wharfedale Diamond 9.4 / 9 CS / 9.1; BK Gemini; Just Racks JRA120‑SW‑BG
2x3m e 2x10m Supra 2.5 Classic; 3m QED P-CV1; 1m QED P-75; 3m Ixos XFA02

Doing Gods work in this thread. With that being said, really considering just buying a C9 55” because I feel that if Apple is reporting supply chain disruptions due to CoronaVirus I think there’s no way LG releases the CX on time. CoronaVirus could cause significant supply chain delays.

2020 LG CX-GX Owners' Thread (No Price Talk)

Why are you putting unconfirmed information in the list?

I’m presuming you’re lined up for a preorder already?

The unconfirmed features are expected to be present in the 2020 series - if the in-depth reviews will not confirm those features I will edit them.

Why a 48” ? Is it because it’s a new panel ? New construction ? Less prone to burn in ? Or you just just want the higher PPI ?

No technical reason. Just space constraints.

Will it support MLB.TV?

Will it decode embedded PGS subtitles when playing a video from a hard drive?

Top picture quality meets richest features of any T̶V̶s̶ ̶o̶r̶ ̶P̶C̶ ̶m̶o̶n̶i̶t̶o̶r̶s̶ display in the market. I can't wait to get the 48" as my main gaming display and I'll be completely LCD free: OLED phone, OLED watch, OLED monitor, and OLED TV.

Vrr + bfi

God's work indeed, thank you OP! I'm going to make a separate thread about VRR and BFI but I'll just throw this in here as well.

It would be great if VRR and BFI could work together. Otherwise, BFI will be almost useless for gaming if VRR has to be sacrificed.

The problem blocking the two features from working together is quite intuitive. With a variable refresh rate the telly doesn't know when the next frame will be displayed. Thus, the telly doesn't know when to start the black frame.

My armchair solution would be for the telly to always start the black frame insertion under 120 Hz timing. This will result in a variable duration for each black frame since the FPS will not always be 120. So be it! This is the compromise to gain the benefits of both features at once.

Would this work or no? Feel free to sound off.

The unconfirmed features are expected to be present in the 2020 series - if the in-depth reviews will not confirm those features I will edit them.

Pretty sure in every other thread, 'No price talk' means not discussing street pricing. MSRP is a fact of the TV just like the specs and has been permitted. Speculation on MSRP I guess could be a grey area.

Just to clarify:

MSRP discussions are fine. Street pricing and where to buy are only allowed in the deals forum (or any deals stickies).

My biggest issue is these improvements cannot be seen with the naked eye. I remember looking at the c8 and c9 and could not find any difference in picture quality.

Just curious, why do you want a "48Gbps" tv now? Are you planning on upgrading your other connected devices to the same version of the 48Gbps HDMI 2.1 chipsets at the same time?

I never trust an atom, they make up everything.

same exact time ? no
same year ? yes
(the devices in question being PS5 and GeForce 3080/3080Ti)



and since I plan on keeping the TV for at least 5+ years, maybe more ..

That's good then. Just make sure that the "HDMI 2.1" tv and/or PS5 list which HDMI 2.1 options sets are currently available at time of purchase just to make sure that both devices have the same options. If they follow the HDMI.org requirement for HDMI 2.1 labeling, they should be listed.

Same version of the chipset? There's no need for the source devices to have the same HDMI 2.1 chipset. With the CX having a custom chipset that's not even possible.

The CX has all the HDMI 2.1 features that the next gen gaming consoles and PC (gaming oriented) video cards are going to have. Those being VRR, ALLM and 4K 120Hz 10-bit HDR. So if he gets the CX then he doesn't have to worry about that.

So unless Sony releases a 4K 120Hz 10-bit HDR capable TV in the middle of the year, LG C9/CX and variants are the only game in town (pun intended).
