So it's a UK 50fps frame rate issue that gets HDR instead of DV. If I watch Netflix via my 4K Firestick, the default settings give DV but restricted to1080p. If I manually set it to 2160p 50 I get the same 2160p but HDR as the inbuilt app.

IIRC the 4K Firestick does support Dolby Vision at 2160p50/2160p60 but because the TV only supports DV at 2160p30, at best, it will only output HDR.

Most Netflix 4K content is 2160p24 but for some reason UK production houses have decided to use 2160p50.

I've noticed that more Netflix shows seem to be playing in HDR rather than DV on my 49UH850 than did so previously. Meanwhile on my 49SK8500 in another room they continue to play in DV.
Just-so-you-know... It's only the 2016 models that have the maximum '30.000fps' Dolby Vision limitation....

My TV updated itself a couple of days ago, first time in ages. Can't remember the new number, as at work.

Could this be anything to do with the above?

Just-so-people-know.... Most if not all 2016 LG 'smart' TV's will be receiving software updates in Jan/Feb 2020 ;)

Does the new software add anything interesting?

My 49UH850V had an update last week and is showing 05.30.80
Indeed... The (2016) UH850's and UH950's run using the same software as the (2016) OLED C6's and OLED E6's ;)

Interesting that they run the same software as the OLEDs. I suppose that explains why mine seems to do some sort of compensation cycle every so often (about once a fortnight).

Hi, my wifi had stopped working on my 49uh850v and I could not update, not been working for months. Tried everything to get it working again, but the ON toggle was set to off. Rang LG and they said I must have a faulty wifi board.
I took it downstairs and connected to my wifi router via cable today and updated to software version 05.30.80. Hey presto seems to of fixed the Wifi issue, strange one but glad its sorted it.

Anyway about to sell this soon, so if anyone is interested please let me know.

Thanks
 
Mine too , 5.30.80 FW breaks wi-fi and hometheater system via simplink ( no sound and no connectivity ) . plug off 10 minutes and all problem solved .

Looking forward to purchase a refurbished 950T...How is 3D presentation of this set? Any cross talk or ghosting luke double images in some scenes?
