You know what....I've gone through your thread thinking you have an oled....but you have a Panasonic LCD?
Ah - in that case your tv just isn't very good.
No offense intended.
I was thinking you had a Panasonic oled for some reason.
Again no offense intended - lower quality tvs do not produce HDR or DV well. They are fine for bluray, but 4k HDR/DV is a no-go. They can't do it.
You need a high end LCD or an OLED to get a good picture from a 4k HDR/DV stream/disc.
It's catch 22 really. You need a better TV to watch HDR content, but you also take some steps back with new TVs when it comes to displaying worse quality material.
This is why I personally don't recommend TVs that can't really do HDR properly. If you are going to take a hit watching poorer quality material, you at least want to have the option of enjoying the latest and greatest sources without problems.
Panasonic's last true flagship was the DX902 in 2016. Since then, their 9 series TVs are just mid-range models. Their OLEDs have taken the flagship baton now.
Oh I forgot to add,even if I copy true cinema settings into custom the picture is terrible and nothing like what the true cinema picture is. Now thats odd isn't it?Hi Dodgexander
Yeah I know what you mean but even a mid range tv shouldn't be giving problems like that. I will just have to pick and choose between good dv and not soo good and revert to SDR. As for the problem I had with settings trying to get rid of posterisatiin and the like,the only way I can watch most content without those is selecting true cinema,anything else is just ....bad . Ive tried lots of settings a no dvI cant get rid so its true cinema for everything I guess.
To say im not impressed with this tv is an understatement and I know others have similar issues with Sony's and such, which indicates that the tv is not faulty but i think it is but manufacturers say all within spec.

I'm not really concerned about HDR really but these issues crop up on everything to some degree,streaming ,hd terrestrial,BD, and DVDs which i expect been 480.It's hard to believe, but mid-range models do have issues with HDR. This is why in my best buy guide it starts with more expensive models:

I have seen too many times people go for cheaper models and regretting it. It's just not worth it.
What you describe with the picture settings may just be a bug with the TV's settings. Sometimes settings are locked in certain modes, and you can't match one mode to another exactly.
If you are at all critiquing the TV when using the TV with HDR material then you are never going to be happy, you really have to treat the TV as SDR only as it doesn't have the means to display HDR without problems. First thing to do when you have issues with a source is to make sure you are not using the HDR version.
Posterisation usually isn't a big deal, I get it on my own TV sometimes and it doesn't really bother me. It's either really bad on this TV, or you're using the TV beyond its means to display HDR material. Although to be fair, even the very highest end TVs can have posterisation. If you check some reviews on HDTVtest on youtube you'll see him rate the posterisation on all TVs. Sony's do a bit better as they have a setting to reduce it.
