I think HDR when done right is a game changer. The best I have seen is forza horizon 3. That game has two simple sliders for HDR. I wish every game that supported HDR used the same system.

I'm going to have to go back and download the demo of Forza Horizon 3 (which I hope has been upgraded to include the XBox One X enhancements) again to try this.  I had the demo originally on my XBox One, but the game itself didn't fascinate me nearly as much as the first Forza Horizon for some reason.  Thanks for the tip on this!

As I said before with PUBG I have to turn off the HDR . Makes the darks to dark. Hopefully if HB does support the X we get a slider.

Hey John,

I am looking at the reviews for this set at Best Buy and Amazon and I am seeing a disturbing number of comments regarding banding while playing video games, etc.

Have you seen any of this?

Hey John,

I am looking at the reviews for this set at Best Buy and Amazon and I am seeing a disturbing number of comments regarding banding while playing video games, etc.

Have you seen any of this?

No, I have not.  I have run all of the banding, dark corner, and dead pixel tests that have been recommended in the AVS Forum and have not detected an issue with even those tests that are designed to reveal it.  I realize that I am lucky to have hit the panel lottery on this, but I have.  It's hard to gauge the percentage of those who are really having the problem though, because the tendency of most is to complain if you have a problem, and quietly enjoy what you've got if you don't.

I'm sure if you bought a 6-Series set at Best Buy, you'd have no issue getting a replacement if you got one that had any of these issues, but from the sound of things, most Best Buys are having trouble getting stock on them right now.

I just wish that everyone who bought one of these 6-Series HDTVs had the same experience I've had with mine.  I'm typing this message in right now from the comfort of my customized Forza Edition Playseat Evolution driving seat, in amazement of how sharp and vibrant the text looks on this display.  I rolled the dice and won this one, but I know what a hassle I'd have right now if I'd had issues with this set and getting a replacement via Amazon.

It could be a number of things....thanks for the feedback.

Still has not diminished my interest in the set.

JC - this thread has helped me sort out some issues with my 50" LG 4K TV in my bedroom.  I've now got it running at full 4K and a 60mhz refresh rate which is acceptable for playing both TGC2 and Super Mega Baseball (I can't believe you're ho-hum about that game!  LOL) although I DO still notice some slight lag compared to my 120hz refresh rate monitor on my gaming laptop.

I never thought I'd see the day where my gaming laptop is on par with or better than my desktop!!

I think there are a lot of people who do not get the full potential of their set ups with the X and 4K tvs. There are just so many variables.

I followed what the guy said and it does look good he suggested turning the backlight to
Max must be to compensate for HDR being dark

Glad to hear that Mebby!  I'm trying to warm up to SMB2, but it's hard to do with me still on my honeymoon with the fully enhanced XBox One X version of Forza 7 ;D

I found a vast repository of helpful videos on You Tube to test my TCL out with.  I hope to see a library of set up's shown for the TCL 6-Series some day, but there are already two that I have consulted so far, and they helped.

If you're not a baseball guy then I could see how it would be of limited interest.  I'm not a HUGE baseball guy myself but this game fills a nice void for me in my sports video game library!

Yes, that is a fantastic and comprehensive review of this set... which, BTW, I'm still totally in love with at this point.  I'm off this week so we're going to have an extensive honeymoon starting today!

That review has just opened the door to more things I want to get my fiddling hands on!
