It can do 120fps with hdmi 2.1, Where's the new cx can do 120fps with hdmi 2.0. It's no loss really as next cards will be hdmi 2.1 and gaming consoles. The c9 is good to goCan someone answer a question please? I have a 65 inch C9 I am a big gamer and the 4k 120fps was a big factor. Does anyone know when and if LG are going to update the TV to be able to do this? Been bitten before by Samsung going back on features.
It was surprising to see someone actually utter the words of the rival format and actually dig into some finer details about it too. Good interview and makes a change to see someone give some real answers. It's like other people when questioned scan their brain for a pre-determined non-answer that relates to said questions, anyone would think they were on trial for murder.I really enjoyed this interview (unlike the samsung one) and especially where he was asked about HDR10+ usage on LG tvs. I mean his answer kinda made sense, and he didn't try to dodge the actual question.
Yea i totally agree. And the answer was not just a generic marketing one.It was surprising to see someone actually utter the words of the rival format and actually dig into some finer details about it too.

While any manufacturer will of course push their own tone-mapping, it still doesn't change the fact that both Dolby Vision and HDR10+ get a look-in and final pass by the content creators, so ideally it'd make sense to have both formats regardless. I'm guessing there must be a cost to adopting the format, it's either that, or LG much like Samsung don't want to be seen to giving in to the other. I suspect it's the latter.
After sending a reply to the rep on the email I posted earlier this Is what i got back9-series will be able to do 4k 60hz on HDMI 2.0 and 4k 120hz on HDMI 2.1. I'm assuming it's 4:4:4 on both settings with HDMI Deep Colour and the input labelled to PC.
X-series will do 4k 120hz on HDMI 2.0 with 8bit 4:2:0 colour as well as 4k 120hz 4:4:4 with HDMI 2.1.
They are incorrect because the 9-series panel is fully capable of 120hz. They might be under selling the info because either they don't know or they haven't bee updated with the new info. I would take Neil Robinson's word over an LG helpdesk rep.After sending a reply to the rep on the email I posted earlier this Is what i got back
I too thought is was a good answer as well. I appreciate why if you want to be in a leadership position that LG, Sony or Samsung would only support one HDR format. LG seemed to have had a similar DV or DV IQ technology in place years ago, Samsung has forged its own HRR10+ path [with partners]. As LG is fully behind DV, it is somewhat vulnerable in that investment in its own similar capability could/would probably be scaled back and it is now reliant on DV innovation. In this situation LG is not a leader, it has become a follower; paying whatever licence fees it needs too for every new iteration the DV releases. Then people start talking about DV more and the LG brand is depreciated.Yea i totally agree. And the answer was not just a generic marketing one.
It is strange in the case of Sony, LG and Samsung, that they only pick one of the two hdr formats (as in DV or HDR10+) while all other manufacturers (correct me if i'm wrong) are supporting both HDR formats. It looks more like a principle not to support the opposing teams format. Though it doesn't make sense as the likes of Panasonic, Philips, Hisense, Vizio, TCL are all supporting both and their users have a freedom of choice. While i agree with LG's stance on this to a certain degree it still is weird and a bit childish.
Though DV is by far more popular one and i think Samsung is losing more by just being stubborn. If their tv's had that DV badge they would increase their sales even more and would most likely dominate even more.
