@The Limey - any chance we can get a link to Ed's FAQ added to your first post? It would make directing mobile / app users to it so much easier.

This threads longevity shows two things. The TV is amazing....and we have no lives :rotfl:

There's something in that, I just had a look at my post count from part 2 and 3, and it totals 2000 posts which is insane frankly :laugh:

But to be fair 762 of those were Nicholars asking for photos or talking about green blobs [emoji23]

Hi again, lads. I’m a bit paranoid now about the backlight bleed I described in my earlier post and have some follow-up questions:

1). When I say backlight bleed, I mean white patchiness on part of the screen, which only shows on completely black images and in a very dark room; it is more obvious with HDR content. Is this “normal”?
2). I have been experimenting with ABC and whilst the blacks are indeed deeper, I do get some haloing, even with ABC set to min. HDR in particular looks too bright, maybe this is the issue? Any recommendations to mitigate the haloing?

Cheers, guys!

So you're getting white patches on a full black screen?

First episode of The Punisher (1080p HDR) and it looks pretty good overall. Much better ABL than other Marvel series, so it doesn't look so damn dark and gritty. It does however have an excess of grain (IMHO), which seems to be the norm with Netflix. Star Trek Enterprise had the same issue for me. Good first episode too, so looking forward to the rest of the series.

Yep. These are only apparent when ABC is off and only when viewing certain media e.g. game loading screens. If, for example, I play a “backlight bleed test” video from YouTube, the screen is pitch black with no patchy bits, regardless of the ABC setting; weird, I know!

Jeez, you use it with ABC off? Why on God's earthly planet would you do that? And yep it looks hideous!

HDR makes this TV look like the worst screen ever created with ABC off lol.

ABC min is useless for HDR, but mid and max can work well, but bright white logos and film credits against a black background will always struggle to a degree, nothing you can do about the bloom unless you dial down backlight and contrast a bit, I've put backlight down to 88 for mid ABC HDR and brightness -2, and it's still brighter than max ABC with 100 backlight and same shadow detail (i use both mid and max btw) and it does reduce bloom a bit, gamma plays a part too, I've got some 2.3 gamma settings you can try too, it keeps the HDR PQ gamma curve tracking well, as I've been told OTB it tracks a fair bit above. Worth a try.

2.3 gamma HDR

ABC max

10ire -10
20 -10
30 -20
40 -20
50 -30
60 -50

Nice. Cheers for that, mate! Will give it a try later. I’ve been putting off using HDR for gaming, as I assumed the extra processing would add to the display lag.

I honestly think you are worrying way too much about lag, especially as it's affecting your actual enjoyment of the TV's best features.

I'm a huge gamer and personally find it no different to my old JS9000 which was 22ms. Unless you can tell me you actually feel the difference with ABC off and on, just get it on right this second! :rotfl:

Agreed, not felt any issues with lag in this TV in any mode and I reckon I spend most of my time on this TV gaming

Even retro gaming feels awesome on it tbh, and considering these games were built with zero lag CRT's in mind, it just proves what a non issue it is.
