Ok, google and search aren't producing results for me mainly because I don't know what to even search for. It's been 10yrs since I've upgraded the TV and really the entire setup, I'm a little lost. I've read through most of this and the A1E thread but that was months ago. Hoping someone can point me in the right direction.

TV: A8F
AVR: Denon X3400H
BR Player: UBP-X700
Streaming: Roku Premiere+
HDMI Cables: Monoprice Ultra Slim Certified Premium High Speed HDMI Cable, [email protected], HDR, 18Gbps, 36AWG, YUV 4:4:4, 6ft, Black

BR and Roku -> AVR -> TV (HDMI3)

The initial issues I'm having:

1. Both receiver and Roku won't output 4k @ 60hz. Says the TV isn't setup for it or isn't capable.
2. When playing 4k HDR Blurays the screen is black during menus but when the movie plays the blacks light up to grey, including the bars top & bottom. Roku doesn't have this issue at all. I haven't tried a standard bluray yet.

3. Is the brightness/contrast supposed to hurt my eyes? That's a joke, I was worried about brightness of the OLED in a bright room but it blows my old LN52B750 out of the water (with brightness tuned way down). It's also going to take a while for me to get used to the blacks, feel like I'm stroking out when it's a vignette shot.

Anyone care to toss me a bone? Thanks in advance!

Hello everyone


after lurking for weeks this useful post, just wanted to share the fact that I joined the club of the A8F owners.
Very pleased with the TV so far, no banding, no dead pixel or something, I enjoy the quality of the device while watching films


Just a question though, I plugged my PS4 Pro on the HDMI2 port, activated the HDR option on the TV and the PS4 says it works now properly and can activate the HDR on God of War for example, so far so good.
But the TV info, displayed at launch of the PS4 says : 3840x2160 x STEREO.
I have no soundbar for now, I wanted to try the sound of the TV by default that I enjoy a lot to be honnest, but I am surprised to see the sound is not written as "dolby".


Same applies when connecting a PC (HDMI3), in 4K 30Hz under windows 10, launching a HEVC MKV file with HDR, Sometimes the TV display stereo, sometimes it display Dolby, for the exact same file


Anyone has a clue on where I should look into ?
(I won't ask on how to remove all the ****ty apps from the home of the TV as I still expect Oreo to happen soon and remove that for me)


Thanks !!!

Hdmi 3 is the arc port that may have something to do with it you could also go
Optical from PS4 to the tv.

Hello


thanks for your input.

Actually, as both the PC (HDMI3/Arc) and the PS4Pro (HDMI2) are showing (STEREO) on the "info" top message from the TV when pressing the "i+" button on the remote, I was wondering where the problem could lie.
Is it linked to the ClearAudio+ feature on the TV ? I left it activated by default... Any clues ?


thanks !

(Note that this setting applies to both the Sony and the Denon as they both have the options and both need it enabled)

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.
There are a few thosand pages on OLED threads since inception, the 2017 B7A, C8P thread has over 1100 pages and that's just one year /2 models and yet only over 100 pages in the master burn in thread. Numbers do not lie.......

The burn-in threads are not very diverse either, certain members have made a lot of posts since those threads started. Pull them out after a few posts and the page count would be even less. Then there are the LCD fans who like to visit as well :)

There also seems to be a disturbing trend of low post counts with timing right around the time oleds go on sale hmmmm it’s perplexing .

I connected my optical cable from A8F to my receiver and Im not getting any sound when I play Netflix from the screen app.Not sure what to turn on from sound settings on the tv? The optical cable tip is glowing red where it plugs into my optical in on my receiver so I am getting a signal from the tv but I must be doing something wrong. Any help greatly appreciated. Thanks

Is your TV set to output sound to an external sound system ? There is a setting for that in the settings menu .

Turned out that my 3 month old Yamaha 683 failed. Nothing had any sound and no speaker images on the front panel. Cant believe hours after finally getting my A8F and setting everything up this happens. I did get to look at an hour of planet earth on the set and it was amazing. Even resetting my receiver did not help. Yamaha will be sent to the repair facility tomorrow and I hope in a week or so I will be back with more feedback on this great display.

Congrats mattg3, I see you finally decided to get an Oled, hope you get your AVR serviced soon and be back to enjoying it.
