That's actually a decent find.

Nice... hot

Heat

HOT!

thus exact model was this price beginning of the year - February/ March . ..I was expecting it to come down in price by now..still waiting

​dam look at them blacks ...inky

Doesn't look great on the wall. With it being bent and all.

Missed one question...HDR? - Yes, dont know how many bits.

Love this direct post lol

What's the difference between this & 2016 model LGOLED55C6V??
TIA

Has HDR via HDMI only so like UHD Blu Ray player

Excellent choice. Wish I had the money.

​How can you have Hdr on anything except hdmi 2.0. and displayport. Hdr is a new technology which needs bandwidth so cannot be on old obsolete analog.
Some people here live in last century touting virtues of analog.

Sold out on website. Sure there will be stock in the stores.

I have a B6. Personally I would save up a bit longer and buy the C6. They are a lot better, particularly with screen uniformity. Also Dolby Vision and HDR on the 2016 models. OLED technology increases significantly with each passing generation.

I also have the B6 and after doing lots of research the picture on the B6 is around the same as the top end models so your not gaining anything apart from 3D and a horrid subwoofer the only difference is the SOC used but that doesnt make the picture better or worse.

The bit of the panel is the main spec that any HDR TV post should indicate first.

I own lg 65c6v and i must say that 3d is the best i have ever seen, also 4k with HDR is stunning. It's not as much curved as i thought it will be and personally i like it. Web os is brill, i can play my 4k or 3d movies from Synology Ds215j through ethernet no problem. Now i have been waiting for LG to sort the input lag issue on PS4 pro with HDR on, that's the main concern at the moment.

​This! HDR isn't a Yes/No question.

HDR over HDMI?
8bit panel?
10 bit panel?
Dolby Vision support?

Are we sure it has HDR support? I didn't think the 2015 models did. HDMI 2.0a? Does it need a software upgrade for that or does it come as standard?

Analogue (that's how it's spelled) would do HDR fine, because it has infinite resolution.

Don't confuse resolution with HDR. Are you referring to analog connectors (yes analog is also an industry standard spelling and in fact, SMPTE prefer the spelling analog)? HDR must follow specifications requiring processing of a digital signal and Sam is correct in citing the use of specific digital interfaces.

If you mean spacial resolution, then no, I am not confusing that with HDR. As analogue signals are not quantised in level, they are therefore are not limited to, say 8 bits. Analogue connections is what he was talking about. How those signals are treated within the device is a different matter.

Oh, and of course the SMPTE would use the American spelling, because it is an American-based organisation. The "MP" bit should provide a clue to that.

SMPTE is US based but is an international body - that is to say their standards are internationally accepted by the major broadcasting and movie industries. For this reason, analog can be used as an alternative spelling to analogue. In fact, I use the word analog in technical documentation, despite being British.

Sam referred to HDR via digital interfaces and not analog and your reply to Sam was that "Analogue would do HDR fine". Given the context, it appears you referred to analog interfaces, hence my question. HDR requires certain specifications and an analog interface will never meet those specifications.

i had the 55" 2013 1080p lg 930v and have been using the 4k 55b6v for 4 months. all of these oled panels that lg produce are just far superior to any led in almost every way. i use my current oled for 4k gaming on my pc, uhd sky q, 4k blue ray downloads and uhd amazon prime. If youve got the budget for one just go and get one even the 930v 1080p oled panel from 2013 beats most current 4k led tvs in almost every way. BTW i have been using my tv's as pc monitors for 4+ hour sessions at a time and still no sign of any screen burn. dont think about just go and get one!

I know what the SMPTE is, but it doesn't make your logic any less flawed though: "analogue" and "analog" are US and UK spelling of the same word, and therefore which one you use depends on which country you are in, just like "color" and "colour" (where, for instance, the EBU tends to use the UK spelling in English-language documents). This is a UK forum, not technical documentation intended for a worldwide audience dominated by American spelling.

But rather than arguing over spelling, I'm interested to know exactly why an analogue interface could not support HDR video signals. Academic of course, because all current video interfaces are digital, but your assertion intrigues me.

As I said, SMPTE is an international body. I don't care which version of analog(ue) is used as both are correct and Sam is correct as far as I am concerned. As for UK forum, have you seen the appalling use of English within these forums?

As you say all video interfaces are digital, it is more specific to say that all video interfaces carry analogue signals, as you are well aware of given your knowledge in electronics. It appears that this is what you are referring to (and given proprietary equipment be able to render the signals into images on a suitable display after ADC conversion), rather than claiming that current HDR streams with their metadata can be read by analogue interfaces such as VGA, SCART and even professional SDI.

Does RS or JL price match with Costco? If so, who to buy with?

No, I have not avoided answering the question. Please consume earlier citations! HDR has been specified to depend on certain digital connectors. I am sorry if you feel this is an assertion but I cannot provide you with the SMPTE 2084 and SMPTE 2086 specs as they are not freely downloadable and we do not have copies of them either as we only have specs dated prior to 2012. However, the HDR-10 format requires HDMI 2.0a with HDCP 2.2 to deliver static metadata. This is metadata stored at the beginning of a video transmission that specifies how to process HDR. Dolby Vision does not require HDMI 2.0a but before you get excited and assume this equates to analog connectors, Dolby Vision still requires specific hardware that is incompatible with analog connectors.

I asked you earlier if you referred to analog connectors carrying being able to process HDR video or whether you were simply stating that all signals are analog. You are the one who avoided the question, as it is evident with all your retorts from others who have spotted mistakes in your citations.

It's good that people are passionate about the minutiae of the details posted. It keeps the manufacturers on there toes. But. if I were to upgrade from my Sony 37" Lcd that is still going strong then that would be my point of reference. Whichever way you discuss HDMI, HDR etc... this is going to give a lot of TV for good price.
Thank you OP. Heat added

No, I have not avoided answering the question.


Hybrid Log Gamma is an HDR system which is compatible with current television signals and therefore requires no metadata. I therefore ask you, again, how HDR could not be transmitted over an analogue interface.

And considering that the question would make no sense if you apply a pedantic definition of "analogue" to all signals, your counter-question is either pure mischief on your part or makes either you or I appear rather stupid. I chose the former.

Ok, that's fair enough and I wasn't aware of this format but I feel you weren't either until you researched very hard. So, the crux is that the 2 major competing formats require a digital interface for the reasons outlined above but pre processing prior to transmission is viable.

It is not a case of anyone making the other look stupid but I took exception to your rather haughty comment towards another user regarding use of HDMI for HDR transmission and his spelling of analogue.

No, I was aware of this format from the start, which is why I asked the question. I know that there are two approaches: an esoteric one requiring metadata and precisely controlled viewing conditions appropriate for cinema but unrealistic for mass-market domestic viewing, and the other which is much more pragmatic both from the viewer and the broadcaster's point of view, even if it perhaps cannot achieve quite the ultimate high dynamic range experience you might get in the cinema.

As HLG is simply a modification of the gamma curve with no additional information, it would pass quite happily down the same analogue link that could carry any existing signal.
