I'll probably order the 65" G2 this week.

shame the G2 wasn't available from Insiders in a 65...my brother in law has gone for the C2 65 for that very reason

in case it makes anyone feel a little safer with their recent Insiders purchase, as mentioned on an earlier post, my first attempt at a payment got blocked initially (I tried twice in fact) so after calling my card company...more to make sure two payments hadn't gone through, they confirmed it had been blocked and then lifted the block.

But prior to that, I had emailed insiders to mention the fact I had tried to pay twice and that I had no idea if a payment had gone through and could they advise if the payment had gone through or if there was an issue.

Once my card company had lifted the block and I'd made the payment, I emailed Insiders again to tell them to ignore my previous email and that blocks had been lifted and payment had been made.

They responded to that email just before 9 this morning...a personalised email, not just an automatically generated one.

So certainly seems a bit more organised than it may have at first seemed

I hope it arrives as my C1 is going back to Richer Sounds this week
hopefully all is good but I assume its gonna be a good few weeks if not more.....luckily I'm not ina massive hurry as the TV it will replace is still going great guns and we have multiple other TVs that can be watched anyway

Has anyone managed to confirm the G2 does get the same 5 year warranty direct from LG that the G1 does?

Nothing about it on the LG website

We must be looking at different websites 😉

I assume they are still sticking with 100mbps LAN connection?
does look to be the case so I would go with a USB dongle which should max out the 300ish MB/s USB bottleneck....this would mean things are fine for even the highest bitrate local streams over a network. In fairness I already do this over my wired network to 2 Sony XH9505's and the only downside is that movies take an extra second or two to start playing back..and then skipping takes a few extra seconds to find the right spot....otherwise the impact is minimal...in fairness, you'd only notice the difference if you had been using an external device (like an ATV4K or a Shield) that had a gigabit port on it

I actually already bought the Cable Matters USB Gigabit dongle but as the Sony firmware update for the 9505 hasn't come through yet, I'd just use that on the G2 instead.

Also worth noting, it's only Kodi that seemed to want a bit more bandwidth and Plex playback even of lossless UHD rips has never been a problem.

im actually going with vesa 300 mount initially until I decorate the room that the TV will go in.

Might also go with the slat panelling behind the TV as well as really like the look

What's wrong with the mount that it comes with?
nothing at all...but as I will be messing about with the wall that its going on, to save me having to start digging out chunks of the wall to sink/recess pliug sockets, this way I can still use and just lose a bit of the "flushness" for a month or two....more than happy for that to be the case until I go with something like below
