I just purchased a 65B and I can't wait to receive it. Unfortunately it won't be here unti Tuesday or Wednesday.

I don't currently own a Blu-Ray player and I am currently considering getting one to take advantage of some higher resolution content. I currently own a Bose sound system that includes a DVD player.

I am considering the Samsung UBDK8500 because it does 4K. But since the LG will upscale content will this unit at over $300 be necessary or will a lower priced Blu ray player which doesn't do 4K work just as well? Basically what would I be missing out on if I go with a Blu-Ray player which does not do 4K?

Thanks
If you intend on purchasing UHD Blu-ray discs then I would say yes. If you intend on sticking with the standard Blu-ray disc, then save your money.
Everything I've read says the new UHD Blu-ray players do nothing to improve the picture quality of standard discs
over the previous Blu-ray players. Your B6 will upscale just fine.

Personally, I'm waiting for the prices of the UHD players to come down and for more choices of movie releases.

Thanks for the input. By the way are UHD discs more expensive than regular Blu-Ray discs?

A little bit more. $25-$30 seems to be the going rate.

Yeah, I just did a search on Best Buy I should have done this from the get go. Actual content is a bit limited.

Tough choice for me however as I don't even have a Blu Ray player. By cheap now and then wait to buy at cheaper but still have to buy again. Combination may still end up being at the same price if I just bought 4K in the first place.

Ah well my issue, thanks again for your help.

Again, all panels are not created equally, these are the setting that worked for my display.. Give them a shot and see how it goes... Thanks to Jeff and Accucal for the great calibration and knowledge you shared !!!:cool:

Dark and Bright are the same? the settings look like daytime settings , can you verify the ifs dark and ifs bright have different settings ?
Thanks

Couldn't respond to your PM (my low post count)... but my hint was in my reply. It is who you were asking about.
I believe my issue was purely bad luck. Likely a very rare bad set from factory. But... they (seller) could not have cared less, and there were no apologies or thanks for your business. Best of luck with your purchase!
Thanks for the response Lex! Please keep us posted on how the factory warranty process works out with LG.

Correct, I was scratching my head as well... but if you toggle between the two, you'll still see a difference in brightness..

Hi all, what's up with the TV turning on the PS4 every single time I switch to the AV Receiver? I know it doesn't if simplink is off or if I turn off the CEC in the ps4, but I want this turned on, I don't want to have to use multiple remotes!, I wonder if LG even tried this?

Also it looks like I will need to buy a new AV Receiver anyway as it's not fully 4k, I had it set up for a few 1080p devices plugged in the AVR, then the 4k devices into the TV, but then they don't get 5.1 sound, only the TV apps e.g. Plex, are giving 5.1 over ARC, but not the other HDMIs... Are we supposed to be able to get 5.1 over all hdmis? e.g. Cable box to TV HDMI then it carries the sound to AVR HDMI ARC which should be 5.1?... But I'm just getting Stereo.

when seeing grey screens in apps the set had pretty startling inverse vignetting
Yes! I've been upset about it!
I've had the tv on long enough that its ran a couple compensation cycles and I ran a manual cycle yesterday. I'm shocked at how much this has addressed the uniformity
Oh my God, don't mess with my emotions. Really? If I run clear panel it will lessen this problem??

YMMV but my panel has improved since first firing it up. Doesn't hurt to run a manual comp cycle to see.

I've only had mine since yesterday so you've given me hope.

I searched AVS Forum for "vignetting" and I think we're the first two to talk about it on the 2016 units. So maybe you're right about it going away over time.

It does...for the most part the uniformity does improve pretty well.

Negative,it wasn't something we talked about.. All settings are post calibration. We factory reset before starting to remove all of my 20pt adjustments to save some time, unfortunately they still stuck on HDMI2 for some reason or another after the reset. You can take a look at the report, maybe that will help shed some light in regards to your question ? I'll be the first to admit I'm no expert in regards to calibration. As for the post calibration PQ, very pleased with the results...
Did you pay someone to do this? There are no 20 pt. settings and day and night are the same? No 20 pt. calibration in HDR?

I haven't noticed any issues with motion or judder versus my F8500 but maybe I'm not sensitive.
Coming from a Samsung F8500, you must definitely not be sensitive to motions issues. That set was basically broken for anything but 60 fps content. It's been a long time since I tried their 24p or Cinema Smooth modes but they were a nightmare. Random hiccups and stutters throughout most movies. Ended up leaving my F8500 always running in 60Hz and just live with the 3:2 judder on movies.

I can't imagine how the LG OLED could be any worse so you should be very happy with motion.

Wow really...I set my f8500 on cinema smooth and never saw any motion issues whatsoever...this goes to show how when it comes to motion, it comes to the individual.

No doubt. That's why there's such mixed opinions on these OLEDs regarding motion. It all depends on where you're coming from and what you're used to. The F8500 issues with 24p are well documented and discussed to death back when the set was released (2013-2014). I recall @wxman also seeing the issue on his F8500 but he is happy with his E6 so that's a good sign.

I remember as well lol, I had a different user name back then angelp77...forgot my password and had to create a new user name! Motion and the inevitable comparisons to the Panasonic zt/vt dominated that thread...back when we valued real pq lol...not how blindingly bright a set could go!!! I'm also happy with my E!

On the topic of compensation cycles, how many hours should I get on the TV before running the full manual compensation cycles. Also, is there a setting which enable/disables compensation cycles, I don't see one. Thanks

There was no need to adjust the 20 pt. settings to achieve accuracy I'm assuming..If you look at the pre/post calibration results, this panel is setup pretty good OTB.. Some minor tweaking is all it needed. Just because you can, doesn't mean you should comes to mind in regards to 20pt settings. Granted some panels may need it, others not so much.. Again, I'm far from a calibration expert, so if there are calibrators that think I was shorted in any way, feel free to chime in so I have the opportunity to address it..
