XONE X just received an update, that disabled HDR10 for gaming, which worked before flawlessly, stating that the TV (LG OLED55C6V) would support HDR10 for TV but not for gaming. First there was burn-in on the screen, which wouldn't exist, then they basically scammed with Dolby Vision and now HDR10 got disabled.

Of course someone will state that it wouldn't be LG's fault, as if the industry wouldn't play one into the hand of another! ;)

Bottom line: The reaction barrier for buying an OLED or any TV of that expense was significantly raised. Never I was scammed that much by a hardware manufacturer and the way the industry straight lies into the customer's face that burn-in wouldn't be a thing is scandalous. Seeing how many people obviously take part in a conspiracy hiding the fact that the issue exists, with arguments that sound like "Did you wash your TV? You know that if you take it off the power that the TV can't wash itself?" that have only been created so the manufacturer can say "You pulled your TV from power - a lack of power damaged it since nothing can happen in that state!" are the epitome of blatant, right into the face lying "I think you're dumb and I can pull off anything I want with you."-statements that were only created by them for being able to talk themselves out of their warranty and that given by the corresponding local laws.

The LG C9 continues to smackdown the offerings from Samsung.
What is ‘Game Mode’?

On my LGC9 55 (which I’m using with my RTX 2080 TI) I see Game (User) under the HDR Picture Mode setting. Is that what I’m supposed to be using for gaming?

Because I’ve actually been using Technicolor Expert.

Yes you're supposed to use game mode for both HDR and SDR video game content.

There's a setting that enables game mode automatically when you're playing a game but I'm not at home to check it for you.

He be using a pc video card. TV input probably be set to PC which i think disables most enhancements (basically game mode) other than color modes. But youd have to research that. for ps4, xb1 the c9 auto switches to game mode.

Snagged a 55 inch C9 for a great deal at Best Buy. It's sitting in my mud room right now just waiting for me to get the balls to mount the thing. If I don't unbox it within a week I'll return it because it just means that I didn't want the thing.

Okay guys I did it.

Unboxed, mounted and calibrated and I feel like my TCL looks better.

That should be wrong, should I opt for a professional calibration or do you guys have a different option other than the calibration disc from AVS forum?

OLED does have a color bias because of the use of color filters and lower color gamut, maybe you're more sensitive to that? :lollipop_confounded:

Potentially. I feel like this could be like when I upgraded from my ATX 50 headphones to my AKGs that didn't have as much bass boosting and sound "coloring" then I understood what a more balanced and detailed sound was.

I'll go through my settings one more time and report back in a couple days. Hopefully once my eyes adjust I'll have a different impression.

Just load up a space movie or anything with a lot of dark content with bright hdr highlights in the same scene. The C9 will crush your tcl.

You don't want to be copying settings for white balance anyway. They will do more harm than good. If you don't have your own meter to calibrate yourself, you are best sticking to the defaults for gamma and CMS.

Yeah I didn’t touch the white balance or any of that just the isf dark, sharpness blah blah blah.

The basics. They even tell you not to use thier white balance settings.

Wow I just finished watching Guardians of the Galaxy 2 on Disney plus in Dolby Vision and it’s a showcase of what the TV can do. I’d also recommend Planet Earth and Night on Earth on Netflix in Dolby.

HDR, especially Dolby Vision, and dark scenes are where the current OLEDs shine. Watching broadcast and other low resolution material will make your OLED feel not so special.

I'm determined to like my C9.

I bought a calibrator tool and I'm going to spend some time with it calibrating it to morning. I'm understanding why my picture looks so weird, look how much blue is my picture!
