Hey LG, why can you not do this for your 2021 customers, who purchased hdmi 2.1 lcd tvs and you have not allowed vrr to be implemented....ps i own the 86" 85006la. Well done Panasonic by the way....good call.

Hi

I've just done a software check and my Panasonoc TX-65JZ2000B, it's stilling me that 3.070 is up to date :-(

Why isn't VRR available up to 120Hz?

Thanks in Advance

Should do standard VRR up to 120 (less mage processing, if any) but VRR with DV only at 60.

Roll out could be regionalised for OTA but you may be able to download and USB install.

Hi

I managed to do the update via the Network Option. It's all installed :) I've noticed that 4K 120Hz Bypass Mode is Greyed Out :-(

Thanks in Advance

How out of interest? My JZ1500 isn't playing ball and thinks it's up to date already (it isn't).

Edit: scratch that, I tried to launch an app from the TV menu and it wouldn't let me without updating so for anyone having trouble updating via the manual search it seems launching a streaming app forces the update.

Hi

I'd updated via Network>Software Update.

Setup>System Menu>System Update, the update wouldn't show up via that route.

I think the days of Director‘s having some balls are over.

It needs to be fed a 120Hz signal before you can change it to 'On'

It was greyed out for me as well, but when I fed it a 120Hz signal from Assassin's Creed Odyssey on the Series X, I was able to change it.

I could turn on the 120hz bypass by just changing the Xbox refresh rate to 120 in video settings. The TV info then pops up as 120hz and freesync premium. Then in the tv menu it was available to pick.

Hi

The option for On was available once I'd turned on my PS5 and loaded up Call of Duty: Vanguard.

Thanks

Hi

I have a PS5, I have 120Hz refresh rate turned on in the game settings for Call of Duty: Vanguard. my TV would recognise 120Hz when I loaded up call of Duty: Vanguard. So, should I turn off 120Hz ByPass in the TV settings?

Thanks in Advance
