I'm pretty sure it's not going to support it. Just want confirmation since there are no those that swear the one x is 2.1 even with ms saying on the product page it's 2.0b. They claim it supports vrr for 2.1 which would ideally be 4k 120hz if true. I honestly expect it to be capped at 4k 60 with vrr enabled and 120hz not even being an option. Again was just for confirmation
They have not enabled HDMI 2.1 on XB1X yet. There were no TVs in market. They will update it to support HDMI 2.1

It does freesync (vrr) and auto game mode. Tried it today and works on C9.

eARC/VRR, which is part of the HDMI 2.1 hardware specs, is possible with the HDMI 2.0b chipsets, provided the mfr designed the chips to up updated. If they did, then the mfr can claim HDMI 2.1 which is technically correct.

Well I decided to watch some hockey this afternoon...no DSE/banding when panning which is a plus. Looks great imo after only a few hours.

However I picked up on color tint, and I see magenta all over the place now imo...

Here’s a 100% white...have at it with the comments. I hoped we were past this on the QC. Looks like 4 distinct vertical areas imo.
I’v returned five C8 before I got one without tint or 8” vertical bands. I repeat, one out of five was finally 95% acceptable. I wanted to wait for the C9 (I still can with my three months return policy) but going thru all the hassle of lugging few more TV’s for a slightly better picture on the C9 is just not worth it not to mention it is still $800 off at Costco. It was and will be for next several years a panel lottery and who knows maybe they will never fix it just like LED still have all kinds of issues after almost 20 years of manufacturing HDTV. People waited for new Sony X950G and from what I read it’s not any better and in some respects worth then the 2018 X900F.

Well upon testing further looking at the color tint on 100% white I’ve now found 3 dead pixels so far...wasn’t even looking for them but they stick out on the white...sign I guess it’s definitely going back now.

Not a good look for LG as one of the first public owners in the wild...

Man, I was super pumped to get my C9 this Thursday...but, that’s quickly fading away, given Guitarguys on hand experience. I do have a 75Q8FN that the 65C9 is replacing. Maybe I should just stick with that, really thinking about it. I’m not trying to start a VS conversation either.

Speaking of xbox one, do you feel the lower lag vs the c8? How is it going from 21ms~ to the advertised 13 in say a shooter that runs 60fps?
Gonna test some COD this afternoon. Gotta get the XOX settings changed for auto game mode and vrr. On the C9, you have options to turn on vrr and auto game mode in the menu.
Any chance you could try VRR on PC?

I don’t have a gaming pc setup

Here was a commercial I just saw and the red tint really stuck out... 😞
This thread is making me depressed.
Well...besides the QC stuff I picked up on today, the rest of my impression in PQ, etc is positive. Maybe an unlucky lottery for me as D-Nice said his panel is good.

I’ll post the 5% banding pics later since I’m going to return this anyways, I mine as well look but I haven’t seen it in any dark or sports content.

As I said no. The panel is pretty clean but has a magenta tint on the far right side. It’s enough that I would recommend sending it back if we had to keep it. I’ll let you know how the two production sets look. No worries.

John, at VE (for a fee) you do a panel inspection before shipping to a customer, correct? That goes with the calibration package? I’d want a panel inspection but wait until CalMAN 2019 comes out so it supports all the features on the C9. Is that possible. All this tinting talk is making me nervous. :/

I asked if they could do just panel check and no calibration and the answer was no. It made sense why because of the extra shipping costs, etc when they have it sent to store vs. direct to aonsimer from lg.

Btw, they are up on Best Buy’s website now.

Yep playing a tan background like sand in the desert or beach will make it show up. Send this picture to where you purchased the set, it should convince them to replace it.

That magenta tint on the sandy beach reminds me of the green/purple/magenta blob my Sony SXRD rear projection (circa 2006) developed. I was hoping I would never see that sort of non-uniformity again.

Those things were a trainwreck, perhaps the biggest trainwreck sony had in their tv history, that ended up in a lawsuit and then they canned the entire line. Obviously the 2019 oled wont have issues anywhere near that mass scale, but what is evident from one of the early buyer @GUITAR guy'[email protected] impressions is that the near black nonuniformity and tinting on full field white QC issues that have plagued oleds in previous years seem to have carried over into 2019, they havent been sorted out. I'm sure many others won't be as 'unlucky', but get ready to buy the lotto ticket again.
