The new TV thread



How you finding it? Looking at the 49" version in Currys as we on a budget now.

Coming from a 6 year old 40" it's going to be a big change!

Think I read only 1 HDMI is UHD? Might have seen that wrong!!

Opinions would be great from am owner!
Sorry dude

Missed this! I haven't actually used it for very long ATM it's going in a renovated room which isn't ready yet I've had it out the box and watched a football game in 4K and it was awesome!

That's the only time I've used it so sorry I can't be of anymore help!

That LG is good value, I looked at it, but its not a 10 bit panel and apparently does fake 4k.
 
Got my 49" lg coming today, Wanted an Oled but they were just too expensive. Went for a pretty good super ultra hd instead! Because super ultra sounds super ultra cool.

It's the 49uh770v if anyone's interested, managed to get AO to price match it at £600 too so £50 off

We got a Samsung UE55KS8000 on "Cyber Monday".

It's replacing the 48" Samsung Curved 4K TV that we never really clicked with. got it for a good price so bought it in April but should have researched it beforehand.

The new TV however is awesome and it seems to have solved the Sky Q issues we were having and surround sound problems also.

HDR games on the Xbox One S look immense on the new TV.

Hisense 55M7000 is great value for money. 10 bit HDR and 4k - was £640 when I got mine.
 
With the new Xbox coming out and the want for a new TV for a while I've been looking at these.

I don't really understand the difference though, anyone in the know with TV's know why one is quite a bit more pricey than the other seen as main difference I can see is the stand.

Never heard of Hisense either, but I've not bought a TV for 8 years!
With the new Xbox pre-ordered, I'm looking at something 4K, around 55" and up to about £800.
Anyone have any advice?

The Sony one looks to be a good choice. Looks like last years sorta flagship model (I find this method of buying to be best bang for buck) so will be an excellent choice for the X.

We have the Samsung UE55KS8000 and really do rate it (though speakers aint the best).

Same old story with LG/Samsung with the speakers then, nothing new there. I have a 5.1 system so would just use that for movies etc anyway.
I'll give the Sony and Samsung a look, cheers
 
I have a sony bravia now just not 4k and its 3 years old but the speakers were crap so did have to get a sound bar. I think its the norm with most these slim tv's now tbh.

Yup. Same when I bought my LG years ago. The profile of them doesn't allow for good enough speaking. You have to sound bar everything.

Im thinking of a sony for around £800-1k. My 8yr old LG has started switching itself on and off randomly.
Any decent 4K Ultra HD deals around, ive not had to look for a tv for years.

I'll ask in here.

Wall mounts, are there any better than others, doesn't need to be particularly adjustable and to hold a 49" tv.

What brands are the go to, never put a tv on the wall before so I'm not clued up.

Just look for something that is 400x400 VESA certified and pick one that suits your budget and aesthetic preference.

EDIT: Assuming your tv is a fairly modern set with VESA mounting points! :)

Its a 2 year old LG so guessing that'll be 400x400?

Ok I'll have a browse on the web

I would have thought so mate, but check your TV manual to make sure. VESA mounting standards have been around since the late 1990's (albeit by different names and updates to accommodate the increase in tv / monitor sizes and weights).

My folks are in their 70s and want a replacement TV. Given the state of their hearing most of the budget will be going on a soundbar, with whatever's left on the set itself.

Tech like 4K will be wasted when all they really want is something they can pause then resume without going down the Sky/Virgin/etc route.

Does anyone have any guidance on a brand/UI best suited to 'viewers of age'?

Any reason not to go for something like this:

Any of you guys have experience with the soap opera effect on tvs? My dads bought a Toshiba 55U6663 and after a lot of googling I can’t seem to find a way to turn this off or reduce it. My dad doesn’t notice but my mum does with the soaps and the like.

It'll have motion smoothing turned on, so turn that off in the settings. After a quick google apparently it's called ClearFrame or ClearScan on Toshiba TV's..

Soap opera effect is because everything looks like a soap opera and too "real", shouldn't be less of an issue on an actual soap as they are recorded at higher frame rates than movies and other tv shows. So you may or may not be experiencing soap opera effect, however give the above a try.

you could also try playing around with turning off things like either 4k/digital upscaling and noise reduction.

Thanks Jonny. I can't find anything in the settings relating to ClearFrame or ClearScan. Noise Reduction was there though and I did amend this but seen no difference.

Thread resurrection!

Interested to know who on here is serious about their home cinema, or at least knows the different between OLED and CRT...

What kind of setups are people running?
TV, receiver, surround sound, set-top box?
and a picture!

Can’t help with the above, but..

I was on the hunt for a budget sub 50’ TV, and Richersounds ended up persuading me to buy a Philips 6500, only use will be for Xbox. Seems ok so far. Wanted another Hisense, but couldn’t find anything

Is that straight out the box?
If so find the fine tuning video I linked a while back & you will see it come alive.

Can anyone help.. so this is my little games room set up. It’s great for most games, but on Fifa 19 there is a slight blur on players when the ball is passed.. almost like it’s struggling to keep up. It’s on ‘Game’ mods. Any tips? It’s a Phillips 6500 43’.

does anyone know the difference between these two TVs? Apart from the base? The technical stuff seems to be the same..

Just mess with all the settings - our LG 55 inch in our lounge does it,im not sure why - but i havnt changed any settings. I have an older 2014 LG and it doesnt do it, which is odd - im looking at a new TV atm and im also wary about this ghosting issue.

Different bezel and stand by the looks of things. The actual tech seems identical.
Im looking at one of them for my next TV,with the PS5 coming next year - they look ok yeah? Im just wary about this ghosting issue you get with fast moving objects in games. Would rather keep it LG as i have the soundbar and limit is 49 inch.
