    Could anybody recommend a 32-40 inch telly for the bedroom? Looking to spend about 300, it won’t be used for gaming just Sky, Netflix etc. Must be a smart tv.

    Thanks

    OLED can be driven quite hard and will go plenty bright enough, the mistake many make, including many of the calibrators, is they keep the OLED backlight (drive) around 30-35 for night and 45 for day, and then crank the contrast up.
    Better to stick OLED backlight on 95 and set contrast to 65 for day and 50 for night if you find it too bright.

    This give a better dynamic range for one, and also reduces the limiter, so if you have a screen full of white, like snow, you don't get it dimming.

    I have mentioned it numerous times on the av forums, but not many try it, you can still calibrate the set the same, just so much better overall.
    It’s going to depend on the content, HDR is handled entirely differently. Changing settings won’t help improve the dynamic range beyond the physical limitations of the technology.
    From my research’, the LG displays are particularly difficult to calibrate in HDR , as they have non defeatable tone mapping when no metadata is supplied, which is the default for HDR Pattern generators, streaming services and videogames.


    There is no doubt at all that for SDR content that OLED is the way to go.

    Yeah its wonderful you can tell my mrs had a look and questioned why we dont have it as our main TV (GT50 currently). On longer inspection it is a fair bit softer and xbox one x looks last gen heh. But for bluray and dvd its a dream, so natural.

    Thanks giz. Steve bumtious kemp is calibration king and he's said some really interesting things about calibration. Nice to see you again. Avf is a bit of a weird place overrun with the mod police these days.

    I've just put an order in for the new Sony AF9 Master Series TV. It looks awesome from what I've read of it, and I've been having some heated conversations with the Mrs. in regards to an external sound system. Fortunately this has a 3:2 system built in, which holds up well against a lot of external options by all accounts. What she doesn't know can't hurt her right?

    I'm pairing that with the 2TB Sky Q package and my PS4 Pro, so I should be good for nights in during the upcoming "coldest winter in the past 200 years".

    I'll let you know how I get on with it all.
    Kept you waiting, huh?

    Nice. Should be pretty accurate out of the box but it doesn't hurt to look at calibration. Lyris mate Vincent, from HDTVTest, is a good bet.
    I'm curious about the Netflix mode on these TVs. Surely if it's accurately setup for SDR and HDR it doesn't need something specific for Netflix. Unless it's just to mask the low bitrate?

    300 extra may as well be a thing. I’ve always had a guy come in before, so this will be a standard.

    Hi, the 55 model finally hit a decent price, so went for that. Do you (or anyone else) have tips for settings?

    I have 4 HDMI devices to configure: Xbox 1 X, PS4 Pro, Switch and Apple TV 4K. I have no idea if I need different settings per box, but some general advice would be appreciated! it is in the upstairs TV lounge which has blackout blinds, so quite low ambient light.

    Thanks for any help.
