Are your screwdrivers getting a grip or are they just slipping? If so your screwdrivers could be worn or you’ve rounded off the screw head.
After you updated to the very latest firmware did you then do a factory reset?Over the past week when watching SDR content, by blacks no longer appear to be black, but instead dark grey.
Other TV and normal viewing looks pretty good, but black screens and letterboxes just don't look jet black anymore.
HDR also looks spot on and as dark as expected.
I've updated to the latest version of the firmware (was already on Oreo) and checked my settings and all appears to be normal. Any other suggestions as to what could be happening?
No - but just to clarify this was happening before updating to the latest firmware, I might have to factory reset although always reluctant to!After you updated to the very latest firmware did you then do a factory reset?
Some of my settings have changed when i did a fresh 'calibration' after doing the above process.
Is the increase in nits due to the panel itself or is it universal for all sets that have upgraded to Oreo?Now Oreo the good parts are that it boots faster, its faster on button pressing etc…, and Game mode now reaches 1300nits tracking from the old non-Oreo 800nits.
Same as mine.Bad part is the calibration controls are a nightmare and shouldn’t be, 4pt and below act very slight if at all when dimming is enabled, and when dimming is disabled the blue channel goes wild.
I found that the first reading was bad, but if you wait a few seconds for the local dimming to "stabilise" then you get a more accurate one. Not sure if it's the tv's local dimming that is slow.swing all over the place when the screen is only showing 10% coverage to 100% coverage.
Yeah there is always one interval that is broken and for me this was 10% last update and now it's 30/40% so a little juggling had to be done.but at 40% brightness there is zero adjustments that would work to get the red channel down its just broke
Technically 1100+ is XG95 territory but mine hits 1100 so the lines between the two models are blurry.I thought the max limit was around just over 1000 for this set? Isn't 1300 XG territory?
Yes, that’s correct and yes to for waiting for dimming to stabilize, but that’s manly on HDR, not SDR as on SDR it was instant.I found that the first reading was bad, but if you wait a few seconds for the local dimming to "stabilise" then you get a more accurate one.

No, you are mixing up light output to tracking, when a TV goes in to HDR it tracks the metadata to the light output of the TV, so this TV is 1000nits, so a film with a 1000nits luminance there is no tracking, but as it increases it as to lower light output as we go up to 4000nits tracking.Also, I'm really surprised by the 1300 nits number. I thought the max limit was around just over 1000 for this set? Isn't 1300 XG territory?
Looking forward to your settings!
No idea what this means but that's definitely the most adverbs I've seen in a single sentence so well done.Everything I can say is anybody keen on purchasing this TV will not be frustrated. HDR is extraordinary. I viewed Netflix, the specular reflections were marvelous. Unquestionably an increasingly customary focus stand would be undeniably more stylishly satisfying on the eye just as having various different focal points,
General consensus is if you don't have any issues, then you don't need to do a factory reset. If you start seeing any odd behavior or broken things, do a factory reset.
Yes, I would, I found that the blue channel on my 55” was more at 7pt up, did a FR and all was good.
