Decided to take the plunge via USB as well. Below are the measurements taken on 5.20.03 right before updating.

This calibration was done over a year ago and is still essentially perfect.
Measurements after updating to 05.30.02 were identical.
The take aways are: no need to worry about losing calibration moving between these two particular firmwares, and calibrations hold up very well over time on this set.
I can check the new firmware tonight if nobody else has. I very rarely watch DV content, but to my recollection the default 50 looked correct for me. I've calibrated 3DLUT for SDR and then white point only for HDR/DV through the service menu. I know 50 brightness is correct on my set for HDR.thanks,
what about the 05.10.30?
maybe LG applied in 05.30.10 the lower blacks in DV, the thing they have just done for the CX series curve.
do you need to push down the "brightness" from 50 to 48 (Cinema Home Dolby Vision) or 49 (Cinema Dolby Vision) in order to avoid the raised blacks (Netflix and other HDR streaming)?
it seems that LG has finally resolved this couple of days ago for the CX...but still the issue on C8/C9...even when calibrated?!
look what Vincent Theo is saying for the CX and LG update.
Hi, I am only seeing 05.20.02 on the LG UK site for OLED55C8PLA. Where are you seeing 05.30.02/10?I’ve not got the OTA here (Scotland) - I’m still on 05.20.02 with no new updates available.
The LG UK site still has this as the latest version to manually download (no 05.30.02/10) available
Had the notification this morning in Finland, but dismissed it and now it's not finding it again. Back of the queue, measuring cancelled.No 05.30.10 in Norway. Either with OTA, or the Nor LG site.
Can I download a compatble version somewhere?
I still don't get offered 5.30.10.Had the notification this morning in Finland, but dismissed it and now it's not finding it again. Back of the queue, measuring cancelled.
By the way, if I recall we did some testing last year with the dimming/brightening over time feature. The biggest thing for me in these firmwares is the ability to turn GSR off in the service menu. Completely removes this dimming/brightening 'feature'. I also find it interesting they can add things to the service menu via a firmware update, which obviously means they could remove things too..
I still don't get offered 5.30.10.
I installed 5.20.10 beta (I were on 5.20.02 beta for a looooong time), with the Apple TV+ app, and the option to turn GSR off. Now I finally are back on track with official firmware, and use 5.30.02, still with GSR off.
Dimming with especially the Premier League scoreboard is history. So nice to finally get rid of that!
BUT you need to be careful with PC use, and GSR off, cause static stuff like the top bar on Opera browser (any browser will do it I guess) have made a minor burn-in on my C8. Luckily I caught it before it got too bad, ran a couple of pixel refreshers and now it's 98% gone.
Been using YouTube extensively since the update and no issues here.Those who've installed the newer firmware, have you had any issues with YouTube? Might be coincidence but ever since I installed the AirPlay update back in December I've had issues with buffering on the YouTube app. It's at the point where I'm now using the YouTube app on the AppleTV instead, as I can't get through a video without it buffering multiple times. I'm hard-wired, this is the only device in the house that has this problem (I use a C7 with a wireless connection in the bedroom and never have any buffering problems).
