Is £1600 a good price in today's market for the 65"?
yes, I paid slightly less a couple of months back but not seen it cheaper since so £1600 is a very good price for the TV you’re getting. Think it was circa £3500 at launch!

Think I'll push for less, got another tv to buy at the same time so hopefully they'll do something.

I connected my PS4 pro via Yamaha RX681 (HDMI) then output from RX681 to Q90R HDMI3(ARC),
If I connect the PS4 pro via Q90R HDMI4 then the sound goes via Q90R HDMI3 to the RX681 I do get sound delay and distortion.

Hi Everyone,

Does anyone use contrast enhancer for hdr videos? I was watching a hdr demo on youtube yesterday, there is a part where the scene goes dark but it appears the tv overly darkens it, or i think it does lol anyway when turning on the contrast enhancer to low, the tv does not darken the scene down as much and more detail is present, so does it help with shadow detail/black crush? On the flip side of that, whites seem to loose detail, for example, hdr moon demo, some detail is lost in bright whites.


0.25 in as the lights switch off is the example of the tv overly darkening, when contrast enhancer is on them details don't disappear.


Example of the bright whites slightly losing detail with it on.

So is it a case of if you want more shadow detail at expense of bright detail, have it on low, if you want bright detail at expense of shadow detail leave it off?

Also if anyone wants a playlist of hdr demos, film clips and games, nature and just random hdr demo's, here is a link to my playlist which i update frequently.

I've found similar and its currently on low as well, prefer to see some of the darker detail that it be lost with too much black crush.

Only had the 90R a short time but its incredibly impressive for movies for me.

Yeah i was just messing around when i noticed it do that after turning CE on to low, will check other things to make sure if it's not a one off, then have to decide if to leave it on low or off.

So eARC will not fix sound lag...this is from other topic.

No EARC dosentthelp. My C9 with Beosound stage (both Earc) also suffer from lip sync :-( I have tried EVERYTHING. Only PCM sound helps a bit. But no multichannel then. Because of LG not mowing SW forward

I don't know much about them but would these fiber optic hdmi cables help with lip sync issues? I read they are supposed to deliver a faster signal? Im not to sure on their specifications or their prices (im guessing quite pricey)

Not strictly true...Lip Sync Correction is part of the eARC standard...in fact it's mandatory..

Don't bother with other HDMI cables (of any kind). The problem with excessive audio delay (in the range of 100ms or more) for certain audio formats is caused by a bad implementation in these TV:s. I suspect that the delay is caused by the TV transcoding the signal. (Which can not be done fast enough.) A correct system solution should not require a time consuming transcoding.

In other topic they wrote that is Dolby fault thats why problem is on so many diferent tv sets.

Ah right, thanks for the reply. I was not going to get one, just wondered if these would help people having this issue 👍

Fingers crossed the update for eARC arrives soon for those that want / need it and see what it fixes.

I'm going to my AVR first then onto the TV so the sound is already processed so no issues fortunately.

Is it possibile skip the problem with a 2 hdmi port bd player? 1 connected to the tv and the hdmi audio output to the avr?

Thanks. I have searched through a couple of those pages. Can you point me to where someone posted more insight knowledge that Dolby (Laboratories) is to blame. (It seems to be caused by a common source for several manufacturers.)
