I tested Billy Lynn UHD in 60fps and played beautifully. I set player at 60Hz beforehand (not sure if 24Hz or 60Hz would really make a difference)I think its time to start lobying LG to get a auto feature with regards to the refresh rate option, so You Tube content at 60fps can be viewed. With regards to the Dolby Vision update got an email back yesterday saying it will be rolled out last quarter 2017 mmm taking that with a pinch of salt
I know there is only one 4k uhd disc at 60fps how does the player handle the motion?
But surely 24Hz would be more appropiate for 24p content in order to get perfect 5:5 cadence. Most movies are all in 24p, aren't they? 60HZ on 24p content will result in 3:2 pulldown which can create more judder than 24Hz.I've just left it at 60, and everything is fine (BluRay, UHD and DVD).
So what does that mean? That whether we select 24Hz or 60Hz on the player, it won't make any difference, bu tthat it all depend on the TV?From page 11 in the manual...
"The 1080p or 2160p video output frame rate may be automatically set to either 24 Hz or 60 Hz depending both on the capability and preference of the connected TV and based on the native video frame rate of the content on the BD-ROM disc."
I'll give it a try at 60Hz for all sources. I too have LG TV + playerIn theory, both devices should handshake over HDMI and set the framerate to the source of the video accordingly. So, if your TV *and* player are both capable of doing the relevant frame rate of the source video, they should figure it out.
If they DON'T, you can choose. On one of my kids DVDs sticking it in 24p causes really bad interpolation, but leaving it at 60 means it works fine, and I've had no issues with BDs or UHDs with "jerking". Both my TV & player are LG
Im in the UK and I dont live near a retail storeI sent my April build in and went through two rounds of RMA and about 8 weeks time before I got a replacement August build. Knowing what they just told you, I would take the refund and try to find an August build at retail like Best Buy or Fry's or Beach Camera or B&H, if you are near any.
