    Two software update questions LG C9

    Hello. Happy owner of a C9 OLED that I calibrated with RTINGS.com suggestions and I'm very happy. I let the LG update 2 days ago and maybe I'm imagining things but the picture seems slightly worse. Should I go in and re-calibrate? Could the settings have gone back to default? Thank you

    Question about DNS, VPN and routers...

    I'm looking at adding a DNS or VPN to my home PC setup purely for privacy/security reasons. Having read a few articles on DNS's and VPN's, there's one aspect (at least!) that I still don't understand: isn't it the router that determines what DNS server my PC connects to? How come there's any...
