I have had my b8 55 for around 10 months now, this evening black diagonal banding lines have appeared. Have attached a picture from a low grey still. Will be calling John Lewis as soon as possible but wanted opinions.

I had a similar problem. Just one line though. Ran the pixel refresher & it cleared it. Weird thing is..keeps coming back in the same place.

I'm on my third panel in 9 months, most recently last week, with an updated TCON board.

Engineers indicated that they are seeing a lot of problems with the LG sets.

Anyhoo, the latest one is substantially darker, or inkier might be another way to describe it.

I been looking at beam so u rate what about with films
I think it sounds awesome with films. Even though it only sends out dolby digital, the sound is extremely clear & concise. Decent base considering it doesn't have the sub included. The option of voice enhancement on the app makes a big difference to the vocals. If you have an apple device, you can use true play which allows for sound set up. If you're limited to space, & have the crescent stand, the Sonos beam is perfect. Its a big improvement on the TV sound. Expensive, some would say..but I prefer quality over options & loudness.

Your running 5.10.10? General consensus is that it produces a dark picture. Will there ever be an upgrade beyond 5.10.10?

The latest firmware is still the same with the crushed blacks also. I never really found a good solution to it that doesn't affect brighter colours too. Using gamma on 1.9 with brightness on 52 seems to show the entire greyscale, but the problem is that brighter colours seem slightly more washed out that way compared to 2.2/2.4.

This is just ridiculous and unacceptable with any product but especially with one in 2000 quid range! Screw the ignorant LG devs / managers / etc ...

I still have to put the brightness up to about 58-60 or else use low/1.9 gamma with around 53 brightness. The problem with having the brightness so high is that there will likely be flashes in darker scenes. It's a bit annoying that this hasn't been fixed yet since the TV wasn't cheap.

Anyone that hasn't upgraded should be thankful, even though LG shouldn't have broken the updates anyway.
