Happily, though, it appears that people power has already prevailed. LG has now confirmed exclusively to me that is going to be rolling out a firmware update to its TVs that will address the HDR lag situation.
Here, in full, is LG’s response:
“LG Electronics has been made aware that some customers are experiencing lag on their displays when playing HDR games on LG TVs.
LG engineers are currently working on a firmware patch to address the issue which is expected to roll out shortly.
LG is also working on a solution for 2017 LG TV models which may include the option of an HDR gaming mode.
LG is committed to providing the highest standards of product quality and customer service.
As such, we regret any inconvenience this has caused our customers and confirm our commitment to resolving this issue as quickly as possible.”
