There is no "Uniformity Problem" in C8s currently soldi in Italy, in fact uniformity on my unit (and those of a couple of my friends for instance...) is excellent and the panel at "5% GRAY" is a little bit clearer than my B7 and much better than the old B6 I sold in Jun.Hi guys, how is the uniformity of the C8?
Here in Italy I read of a lot of people really disappointed we a lot of change, I don't know if it is a local problem (all sold in Italy are produced in Poland)!
And I suspect a little the big price-drop in Italy could be due to that (now we can find the65c8 at 2400€)
New this year is a test of the set's ability to produce HDR images. While the E8 is rated excellent on this factor, the OLED 65B is rated poor and the OLED 65C is rated fair.
Before the update when using dynamic tone mapping for game mode......you can easily see the brightness slowly brighten the image up from some what dim to brighter. Almost as it was processing or analyzing the brightness data too slow.Do you mind explaining the the improvements you're seeing?
Hey guys...after watching Maniac on Netflix, which is in Dolby Vision, I have some questions/comments on Dolby Vision Cinema Home vs. Cinema (User):
The White Balance in Home is set to "2 Points", and is all zeroes for both High and Low.
The White Balance in User is set to "20 Points IRE", with IRE at 100, and all zeroes for R, G and B.
What is the difference(s) between "2 Points" and "20 Points IRE"? Has anyone adjusted these to further dial-in the picture? For example, for my Technicolor Expert (User) setting, I am using recommended values for all the 2 Points High and Low settings, which helps (IMO) the color balance.
Also of note is that Home has TruMotion set to Clear, which provides a strong SOE (Soap Opera Effect), while User has it set to Off, so you don't get any SOE. What exactly is the intent of Dolby Vision with regard to SOE? Do they want that effect? I dont; though my wife does, of course...LOL.
Thanks as usual for any thoughts and input!
Bumping this for input...

The C8 and E8 both have the Alpha9 processor and are the same, as you say.Wait, wat?
Since the 65C8 and the 65E8 are supposed to be identical except for the packaging and audio... How can this be plausible?
Could this be a problem with 'dynamic tone mapping'?Just noticed, what might be an issue, with the latest firmware.
While watching SDR content from my Directv input(using technicolor mode), there seemed to be a very gradual darkening of the image. Then, very quickly back to normal brightness. This happened twice over the past hour. At first, I thought is was my Directv causing the issue, but when I replayed from the DVR that period of time, the brightness the entire time was OK. So that tells me the TV was gradually loosing brightness, then corrected itself. I am not using any brightness limiting functions and never noticed this before the firmware update.
Anyone else notice this, or something similar?
