Hi all! I just recieved a brand new 2020 model LG OLED 55" tv and i have a HWS currently. The video quality doesn't look as good as i thought it would on this new tv. i understand that my HWS is not pushing out 4k video or even 1080p but i guess i assumed it would still look better than it does. I think my HWS is on it's way out as it's been recently doing restarts and freezes for no reason. It is about 5 years old. If i upgrade to a H3, do the regular channels look any better at all or what would be the benefits with my 4k tv? i know there is some 4k programming but i just wasn't sure if the rest of the channels look any better at all with the faster more powerful receiver. Also, we currently have two HWS on the same dish. If we get a H3 with a Joey, does the Joey have access to "on demand" movies and netflix or only the H3 does? we both watch netflix and on demand movies and that needs to be possible. If the Joey can't access netflix or on demand movies, what should we get then? Sorry for so many questions. Thanks everyone!

The Joey is a Client of the Hopper. VOD is at the Hopper and the Joey accesses whatever is one the Hopper and it also has Netflix.

Also,. try doing a Google search for Calibrate [model of TV] and try the settings you find

Big yes! I have an older LG 55" OLED and calibration really helped. If your video preset choices includes an ISF mode, start there.

Also, the last couple of software labels have had some bugs in them, so they have sorted a bunch out in the latest update. I have the HWS also.

I am going to try to tweak my settings to see if i can improve my screen quality. so from the sounds of it, i'd be ok ordering a regular joey with the H3 because the joey can access both on demand and netflix, correct? the joey would be going on a regular hdtv, not 4k so we dont need a 4k joey as far as i know.

I have the HWS...…..I went from a 55" Samsung to 75" Samsung & the picture is very good
YouTube is fine. I went into the YouTube settings & changed it to 1080P, even thou the HWS
will only display 1080i instead of auto
