I've tried forgetting about my banding and any content I've watched personally I don't see it much. If I watch anything that's been recommended to test for banding, I do see it but that's me going looking for it. I'm past my return period now and just under 100 hours. I bought from John Lewis and took out the extended warranty. If it starts getting worse or bothers more in the future I will take it further.
I tried my best to tolerate but it just keeps showing up whenever the camera pans horizontally.
Yesterday I was reading SpareChange's Ghostbusters Afterlife 4K review and I noticed the bands on Paul Rudd's face when the camera pans across his face.
Doesn't matter if it's black / near black. Even shows up in Football. If I pause the bands don't show up.
As I said, I don't mind thin faint bands but mine has 5 bands that are about 1 cm wide each and these are on the 3/4th center of the screen.
