There is no talking a Sony OLED owner into a LG, I can tell ya that ;)
One thing i have noticed, Sony Tv's have more depth/3 dimensionality in pictures. i just love this quality in overall image. Why do LG and Samsung not so serious about this aspect of picture quality. And this one aspect is not even much talked about.

may be that's why everybody likes Sony:)

I was definitely noticing a difference with smoothness between 2 and 3 but I think my cinemotion was Med when I did that test. So I’ll try again. Smoothness 2 with min cinemotion might be a good one.

Motion flow Normal, Cinemotion High is what I settled on. Normal motion flow seems like a good compromise between stutter and SOE. At first, I could see a little of both. But over time, both effects seemed to just fade a way (this was a subjective adjustment in my mind, I'm sure!).

Not getting DD+ /Atmos sound from AF8's internal Amazon app with dolby vision content. Jack Ryan series episodes with Dolby vision only output PCM 2.1.:confused:

The problem occurs only when playing content with dolby vision , everything else plays just fine and its limited to Amazon App only.

Netflix app supports Atmos/DD+ sound with dolby vision content and is Flawless.

Just when i thought OLED Burn-in is free from Content with black bars.

Guess what!

Today while going through sony tv manual i found this written over there.

Sony Tv Manual
Image retention
OLED TV‘s are susceptible to image retention (burn-in) due to the
characteristics of the materials used.
The following are examples of images that may
cause image retention:

Content with black bars either on the top and bottom and/or
the left and right sides of the screen.
(for example, Letterboxed,
4:3 screen, Standard definition)

• Sony recommends that you turn off the TV normally by pressing
the power button on the remote control or the TV.• Fill the screen by changing [Wide mode] to eliminate the black bars. Select [Wide mode] other than [Normal].

Are these manufacturer's of OLED TV's serious? whats going on?

So one cannot even watch movies without having to worry about Burn-in:mad:

That’s a warning to free them from liability if in the rare chance uneven wear would happen from watching movies with black bars . The chances of that happening are pretty slim , I can’t imagine anyone watching primarily 4:3 content anyway. Do you believe everything you read ?

Not an owner yet, but about to buy one. However, I read something about a dimming issue. The screen dims part of the screen if something stays static for too long - like football scoreboards and HUDs in games. Has this been fixed yet?

Nice to know that the chances are slim.
@chunon : But what really am afriad of is those few members pouncing on other members even on slightest mention of Burn-in. (I got to know about your original post via instant email notification), please refrain from making such remarks, peace ✌ and god bless

If you want to be paranoid about it have at it. Completely disregard members with lots of oled ownership experience. You are free to believe whatever you want I am just relaying my opinion .

Do you guys know if turning the TV off via HDMI control using another remote does the same thing regarding fixing image retention? What do they do during power off that helps this?

Not an issue at all. Not with my usage, at least.

Well guys, the 65A8F is finally here. I’m happy to report that I appear to have found a keeper in the first try. No visible bands in any gray slide, no blotching, no clouding, no color stains. Nothing. Comparing it to the pictures of other examples with very visible uniformity issues, this TV has to be the cleanest, most uniform example I have seen since I started researching this purchase.

The only possible complaint, if any, would be that the TV is not a light cannon, but its brightness range is sufficient for everything I have watched. I am extremely satisfied with its OOB PQ and would not hesitate to recommend it to anybody. It certainly blows my 10 year old LN52A650 out of the water in every respect.

Thank you all for your patience during my research and for sharing your insights.

Almost a full year of PS4 and PS4 Pro video games, pausing the tv for stretches a time, watching cable news CNN/MCNBC NFL Network, and ESPN, knock on wood no burn in nor banding. Sometimes I will leave the TV on for noise while home alone and after 3-4 hours it turns itself off, not by remote, due to inactivity. You only see vertical streaks if you look for it on a input that has no incoming video. Only if you stare to find it. A casual friend stopping by wouldn't notice it unless you told them to.

No burn in nor screen retention ever noticed in the past 11 months.

Ditto same here, but I think the reason for me are the more expensive High Speed HDMI cables I am using. Thats my guess.

Just got mine mounted on the wall. Did the latest update, then looked through settings. No changes yet. Haven’t noticed any banding or artifacts. Looks like I got a good one.

So far on just HD TV and Netflix from a MAC Mini, it looks like ****. Everything looks a little grainy, and not as sharp as it did on the other TV. Must be a basic setting I have to change? I’ll run though them now. I'm HDMI from a few sources to an AVR, then the latest and greatest HDMI from Monoprice to the TV, using port 3 for the ARC. I've compared the settings on RTINGS.com.

The first pic is what I'm coming from, a Sony KDL-55W900A, which is about five years old. Then two pics of the beast with TV and Netflix content.

EDIT: OK, whatever changes I made, it looks great. Watching a 4K video from Youtube. Any recommended online demos to blow my socks off? EDIT again. Damn, just those 4K demos on Youtube look EPIC.

This is hilarious, with only a single mention of Burn-in you diagnosed that i am getting paranoid.

Please keep such a delusion to yourself. You are neither a doctor or a burn-in specialist.

I completely respect the opinion (about this TV) of my A8F family members here.

You said, the chances of such type of burn in is slim, I completely respect your opinion and fully agree since you have lot of experience. Thats why we are here, to learn and share our experiences.


But i again request to refrain from such personal remarks.

Peace
God Bless

As long as the tv is turned off with remote either directly or with hdmi control it will run it’s scheduled compensation cycle which mitigates ir. The comp cycle normalizes the pixel voltages which in turn combats ir.

So if I have my Harmony remote set up to turn off Sony A8F it will go into comp cycle or not?
