    OLED DISH Burn In

    That damned DISH logo was the only issue I ever had with my Panny GT50. I bought an LG C7 from Value Electronics in fall 2017 and had it calibrated there. I worried about the logo but dumped DISH when I moved. Strictly streaming now. No issues with my OLED.

    LG 55" OLED TVs

    Well my OLED and media cabinet are on there way to me. Feel like a kid at Christmas even though I ordered it on Black Friday. I ordered from Value Electronics. Included the 200 hr break-in and full calibration service. A new BDI media cabinet completes my purchase. Can't wait!

    KAB, what was your source media for playing Dark with original German voices and English subtitles? On my Roku Ultra my audio choices were Off which gave me the default English voices with some subtitles such as titles or if a character was reading something. Other choices were for subtitles...

    HWS updated to U242

    I got U241 back on 12/13. Now for U242 to come out so fast says something was wrong with U241.. I can’t remember the last update that presented you with a screen saying you got an update when you turned on your TV....[emoji57]

    Can a Hopper receiver cause a 5-yr-old plasma screen to lose picture quality?

    2012 Panasonic GT50 plasma owner here. I upgraded to a Hopper/Sling back in 2013 from a VIP622. The picture is as beautiful today as when I got the unit. I have a calibrated LG OLED replacing that unit. Have you tried a new HDMI cable? Are you running your devices through a AV receiver then...

    LG 55" OLED TVs

    Hopefully by mid December I should have those questions answered. Valid concerns for sure. For sure issues such as dead pixels or the panel lottery for banding issues I won't have to deal with.
