Not based on the size of the red sub pixel. I hope everyone understands these mods deal with the filter layer and not the emitters.

welcome and enjoy this awesome TV. Please let me know if you figure it out, i am going to play around tonight.
So I took a look at the display settings on the shield: Device Preferences > Display & Sound > Custom display mode > Current display mode:

When set to the default display setting my shield indicates:
"3840x2160 59.940Hz YUV 420 10-bit Rec.2020 HDR10 Ready"

When I enabled Dolby Vision in the shield display settings the default then changes to:
"3840x2160 59.940Hz YUV 422 12-bit Rec.2020 Dolby Vision and HDR10 Ready"




So I tried picking a custom resolution that is rec.709, specifically I tried:
"3840x2160 59.940Hz YUV 422 12-bit Rec.709 Dolby Vision and HDR10 Ready"

With that selected the CX does see rec.709. With the "Match Content Color Space" setting enabled, I then tried hdr content on netflix and disney+ and it did auto switch to BT.2020. So the match content setting seems to work when your default is set to rec.709 via custom display mode and you play BT.2020 content. So I'd say the CX is working correctly and you should be able to get the shield to work by using the custom display setting.

That's why there's that handy post number, shown clearly on every single post, so that you can refer to them

Wrong. You don't know how many "posts per page" he and I have selected as our personal choices in the User Control Panel for "desktops". It's a user-configurable choice. Just use the Post numbers! HTH

65" and 77" models have seen drastic weight drops. nearly 5KG on the 77" model.

Any theories as to what has changed?

It turns out that the extra 8GHZ that the C9s had really weighed a lot. It's called "streamlining".

I heard the only place the 8Gbps difference has any weight is in these forums. The rest of the world seems to care little

Really curious to know what the change is in all seriousness.

No current AVRs that I know of can pass VRR. Some of the 2020 models will.
I thought vrr was one of the optional features for hdmi 2.0b like allm and earc. That explains it. Haha.

It's strange, the weight without the stand, the 77-inch CX is about 7 pounds lighter than the C9

But the weight with the stand, the 77-inch CX is about 5 pounds heavier than the C9. So the new stand is about 12 pounds heavier than the old one.

I doubt it, but do they intentionally add weight to the display to help balance it? Could they be re-balancing the weight of the display with the stand?

VRR will work on any HDMI version hardware and even analog. Some simple HDMI switchers will pass it. The issue is that the more complicated devices like to mess with the signal for things like OSD and scaling and other picture processing. This will mess up a VRR signal. They tend to err on the side of caution and strip out unknown items in the EDID to prevent that sort of thing.

Now it might be possible with some 2019 AVRs like the Denons which have a true bypass option for the video with a possible CRU tweak as well. I don't believe anyone has tried it.

Nice observation; I was informed by a user elsewhere that the 77" OLED panels have a thicker backing for rigidity, perhaps slimming down this rigidity in the 65" and 77" models is the weight loss factor with the stand to counter balance as you pointed out.

The 55" weight remains unchanged lending credence to the theory.

I gather there isn’t much in it if any between filmmaker and cinema user, if all processing is off.

I have enabled AI picture pro for all ports, interested to see if I notice any change over time going by what some have said on here.

Couldn't really speak to the blacks as I am a novice when it comes to OLED's, sorry. You mentioned you are running netflix through the apple tv 4k, just out of curiosity why not use the native built in Netflix app?
It might just be the content I played, I might try the internal Netflix app and compare, I guess I use the Apple TV 4K box just to make use of it, I only really use it for Netflix and some Apple movies and rentals.

Unless there is some advantages to using the box, I might just use internal apps, can anyone give me any reasons to use the Apple 4K box over using internal apps?

Thanks

YES! THAT WORKED!! You are officially my hero, thank you so much!

Also, I was able to fix the fios bt2020 issue as well. I have the new fios one mini 4k box, and I was reading some fios forums and it is a known issue that the new one mini boxes are forcing HDR for all users. I checked the toggle for HDR, and it was OFF (this fixed the issue on my QLED) So I then read some more and users said changing the resolution to 1080p worked for them, and lo and behold it worked for me! Color space is now rec709 on the fios input! Kinda lame its 1080p now, but I have a hard time believing it actually was 4k in the first place.

SO far tonight is off to a great start!! Thanks again to you an avernar for this!

Maybe you can help me figure out my HDMI issue with the shield and the CX since you are on a roll?

My issue is, if I set power control to IR (LG TV), whenever I switch inputs from the shield to something else (ps4, cable) the shield sleeps, but the TV shuts off. If I uncheck the IR control, the issue doesnt happen, and the shield sleeps, and I am able to switch inputs...but, then i cant use the shield remote to shut the tv off when I am done. It only sleeps the shield, but doesnt power the TV off.

Can you tell me if you see the same issue? And what your power settings are set to? I attached my power settings below

In a perfect world id like to be able to switch input from the shield to something else, and the shield sleeps when i do that, but the tv doesnt shut off. Id also like to be able to hit the power button on the shield remote, and both the tv and shield shut off. This worked fine on my qled, not sure if its an hdmi glitch on the cx?

Thank you again, hopefully you can help me here as well.

Sorry, and one more weird hdmi glitch with the shield and cx...if i restart the shield, it creates another device on the same hdmi port...the only way to remove it and get it back to 1 is to unplug the shield hdmi from the tv and plug it back in then its back to 1 as expected. I have auto detect device shut off in the tv settings...i assume this is a glitch which will be fixed via firmware on the tv?

Just to say one more thing about the new panel. LG Display usually makes improvements every year but they never announce what they have done or why so we can only speculate. I'm sure LG Display made whatever improvements for a reason whether or not it's something visual we can see. We have heard some information that both LG and Sony are able to better control the voltages to all the pixels on the panel for 2020 which is supposed to improve screen uniformity. We will have to wait until we see enough sets to see.

I can say one thing for sure, that bad tinting problem seen on a lot of 2019 panels has been pretty much significantly reduced and or eliminated on the panels we have seen so far.

I’ve heard this recommendation before. I’m genuinely asking from a purists POV (creators intent), I was wondering if someone can explain why we would leave HDR settings alone? (With regards to ‘Picture Options’ in settings)

Noise Reduction, MPEG Noise Reduction, and Smooth Gradation would all alter the original picture taking detail away. Also, why would a 4K HDR image need ‘cleaning up’ anyway?

How are you switching inputs away from the shield? As a workaround you could try switching back to the shield first so that it's active and then try using the shield remote to turn the shield+CX off. I am using a logitech harmony hub with my setup so it's quite different of a configuration. Though to answer your question, I've haven't messed around with the power settings much yet and left the CEC options all on and I haven't setup IR with the shield for the TV.

I have seen the CX HDMI input port that the shield is on show two things at the same time, "SHIELD" and "NVIDIA". It's not doing it right now though and I didn't do anything in particular to make it go away. I'll have to keep an eye on that, but I have seen it happen.

Are you connected directly to the tv or through a receiver/sound bar? I am using the magic remote to change inputs...if I enable ir power control with the shield remote, I get the shutoff when switching inputs so I can’t go back to the shield and power both off with the shield remote...

I’ll play around some more...thanks again for taking the time to answer

But the weight with the stand, the 77-inch CX is about 5 pounds heavier than the C9. So the new stand is about 12 pounds heavier than the old one.

I doubt it, but do they intentionally add weight to the display to help balance it? Could they be re-balancing the weight of the display with the stand?
The heavier the stand the more stable the TV becomes......

I canceled my CX. I use a drop down fireplace mount so want my VESA holes as high as possible. I didn't realize the CX holes are SO low on the TV. So now I am between a GX which I think has centered VESA holes or a Samsung Q90T.

If anyone has a 77 GX can you please measure for me the distance from the top of the TV to the TOP vesa hole for me?

I’ll play around some more...thanks again for taking the time to answer

The shield is directly hooked up to my CX at the moment. If you want to keep the shield IR TV control enabled, then as a workaround you could cover up the shield remote's IR out when you don't want that remote to issue a TV off command. Though that's not really ideal.

I did read recently that in an upcoming update the shield remote will get the ability to send out IR commands to cycle through the TV's hdmi sources. That update could help solve your issue, but I don't know if that feature will actually get added.

Of course. We are wondering what accounts for the weight loss between the C9 and CX models? The 77-inch CX is 7 pounds lighter than last year's model.

Please tell us more

As above, we are wondering what action they took on the TV without stand to reduce weight.

When I said I leave the HDR modes as default, I do turn processing off for these modes, I just could not remember what is enabled by default.

You mean that this new subpixel change on the CX can't have an incidence on "burn-in" probability ?

No one really knows because there is no information coming from LG Display on this best I know. Just be assured any changes they are making you would think improves the panel in some way and be done with it.
