  1. No game in the last decade (or ever for that matter) has hooked me like Rocket League has. I have played that sucker consistently (as in pretty much most days off) since it hit PSN for free back in 2015. I continue to be amazed at what some people can do in this game in terms of car control/mechanics and I fool myself that I can someday do the same. I do take some level of pride in being pretty decent at it given most the players at my rank or above are at least half my age. I'd love to compete in a 40 and over tourney. It isn't the quest to rank up that keeps me coming back. It is how the game feels. Game play is easy to pick up and incredibly difficult to master. The perfect pick up and play game that I can play for 30min if I'm short on time or I can easily dump hours into it on any given night if I'm not careful. So ya the answer for me is pretty easy. Rocket League!
  2. Nice. I'm in the same boat. My +4yr old iPhone 6 battery is also on its last legs. Drains super fast if not in low power and now my lightning port has some connectivity issues. Can't get phone to sync with PC (fortunately the last backup was only a month or two ago) but can still manage to charge it. Sooo I just placed an order for a iPhone 11 pro max. I've taken my share of pics with the 6 over the years and am looking forward to using the new camera and the larger screen of the 11.
  3. I'm 44 and definitely can relate to experiencing some level of discomfort if I sit too long while gaming or doing anything on the computer. Usually feel it in my neck muscles first because of my old habit of wanting to lean forward. Been thinking of buying one of those wearable posture corrector thingies like this one here: https://www.amazon.com/Posture-Corrector-Adjustable-Comfortably-Kinesiology/dp/B07GQM1W25/?tag=verywellhealth-20&ascsubtag=4171981|nc774d2c954014d8e9047badb66e04ced15 The older I get the more I realize how important good posture is...and stretching...and eating healthy...and...you get the idea. As my Grandpa used to say, getting old aint for sissies. I've been using CBD oil just about every day for the last few months and have noticed hand/wrist pain (from gaming, computer use, etc) is almost non existent now so I got that going for me. I can really see why gamers invest in dedicated gaming chairs that support back and neck. For now the recliner couch works well as long as I place a couple small pillows behind my to support neck and back.
  4. Any word on if Once Upon A Time In The West will get a UHD release? I noticed they recently did a 4K restoration of the film so I'm curious if a UHD has been announced. Also I'll echo what everyone else said about Alien. It looks fantastic in UHD format!
  5. Absolutely loving this game. It is everything I wanted it to be and more. My one minor gripe is the poor implementation of HDR. As many of you are likely aware, they pretty much faked it and the results are pretty poor. I took a screenshot of SDR vs HDR as a comparison. After tweaking my TV settings for both SDR and HDR for this game these are what I got. SDR is so much better. What is everyone elses opinion on the HDR vs SDR debate regarding RDR2? Is anyone using HDR and happy with results? This is the first game I;ve been unhappy with HDR o my LG B6.
  6. Picked up SPR and Diehard last night. Just gave SPR a play. Wow they did an amazing job here. Picture quality is great. At first the grain levels were a bit much but once I started playing the movie I didn't really notice it. It felt like it was exactly as it should be. I'm so please with the disc. Easily my favorite "older movie on UHD" disc. Love it.
  7. I'm hoping they are wired differently and have better luck. They are the 2 ARC port for what its worth.
  8. Anyone else experience HDMI issues on their LG OLED display? Just recently it seems HDMI ports 3 and 4 have stopped working on my LG B6 55". The other day they were spotty and started to display at a really low res and now finally they show no signal. When I switch the same device to HDMI port 2 it is fine. My PS4 pro uses port 2, cable tv port 1 and LG UHD/Roku Ultra share port 3 (haven't picked up another HDMI cable yet). Wondering if I should look into an HDMI switcher and just plug that into port 2 and switch between PS4/UHD/Roku. Anyone have experience with switchers? Gotta love technology...
  9. Nicely done, Ed. Very pleasant listen. That modular stuff looks so daunting. One of the artists I follow on Soundcloud just posted a video of him using some type of modular setup. Thought you might enjoy it.
  10. Ok so I just had a WTF moment. Returned home from picking up some groceries, etc. Sat down with some dinner, powered on the tv and fired up Blade Runner 2049 again since when I watched it the first time I was really tired. Anywho the banding was back just like before. I didn't change ANYTHING other than power off and power back on when I got home. So I remembered my display detecting ultra deep color mode when I first fired up the UHD players after factory reset and then looking fine. I decided to disable deep color mode which forces a tv restart. Upon restart it detected the deep color mode on my UHD player again and voila the same scene in Blade Runner looked good again. No visible banding. So it would seem that the display is disabling HDMI ultra deep color mode when I power off even though it says it is turned on for said HDMI port. Very strange. At least I know how to get around the issue for now. I'll have to dig around the interwebs some more and see if others have this issue.
  11. Good news everyone...I seem to have made the problem go away after doing a factory reset through the displays software. I tried the cold reboot but never heard any "clicks" while holding the power button down and it didn't seem to work. After a factory reset and going through the initial display setup I fired up Blade Runner 2049 and went straight to the same scene as before. Please to say I am unable to see any defects in the picture now! Sorry to waste everyones time. I should have tried that before posting on here but I guess I was hoping it was a quick fix in the settings. Thanks again for your help though. Now to update the firmware and cross fingers it doesn't come back.
  12. Thanks for your lengthy reply. I think the reboot might be my next option. I am doing the "clear panel noise" option which takes 1hr with the tv turned off. Doesn't seem like that is the issue but I'm grasping at straws. I did put in the Revenant UHD earlier and I'm seeing the banding on there now too. I dont seem to recall seeing it on that disc before. It has been what I consider to be near flawless picture quality and my favorite UHD disc.
  13. I tried using the cable I use with the PS4 and the banding (pixely lines) is still very much present in Blade Runner 2049. It otherwise looks fantastic. It only seems to occur in the background where a bright background is contrasting with a darker foreground which is why I tend to see it in the sky most often. I did poke around the LG video options and it is pretty sparse. Nothing that would cause this issue. I just remembered these UHD discs come with the standard 1080p bluray so I just did a quick 4K HDR vs 1080p bluray comparison shot. It is glaring! The 1080p non HDR disc doesn't show the issue at all. Take a look. 4K HDR: 1080p standard: Ugh those HDR sky scenes are horrid. Pretty sure I've seen this defect to some degree on certain discs but never this bad. I'm using the latest firmware on both the B6 and UP970. I seem to recall the latest firmware on the B6 people were complaining about something but I dont recall what.
  14. Wow ya I see no traces of this defect in your picture. Thanks for checking and offering to help! I guess that is good news since that wouldn't seem to point to an inherent issue with my display. My UHD player is the LG UP970 (I think that is the model #) connected via HDMI directly to the TV (HDMI #3). I understand that is an "entry level" player and I have no idea if it contributing to the issue. My cable box is using HDMI 1 and PS4 HDMI 2. I am not using a receiver to process any video. Only using the Yamaha RX1500 for optical audio connections. I wonder if using a different HDMI cable or one of the other HDMI connections would make a difference. I'll have to check. My TV picture mode settings are as follows: HDR standard (user): OLED light = 100 / Contrast = 100 / Brightness = 51 / Sharpness = 10 / Color = 55 / Tint = 0 Expert control settings: Color gamut = normal Everything else is turned off White balance settings: Color temp = Warm 2 Code value = 668 No adjustments to R/G/B NO adjustments to color management system Picture options: Black level = low Trumotion = user (de-judder = 2 / De-blur = 9) <--I've turned this off and it didn't help All other settings are off (except for real cinema which defaults to on and is greyed out) HDMI Ultra HD deep color is turned on for HDMI 2 and 3 (I dont use it on the cable box) Thanks everyone for chiming in. I'll reply if anything changes.
  15. Can someone help me describe what type of defect the pixelated looking lines are in the sky here? I only seem to notice it while watching 4K HDR material on my LG B6 oled display. The above scene is from Blade Runner 2049 UHD but I see it to some degree in most 4K HDR material mainly in brightly lit sky scenes. I know its probably a common issue but I don't know what to call it. Is there a magic setting on my LG B6 that will lessen this effect? Is this something that can be eliminated or lessened by having the TV professionally calibrated? I can post my settings later if its helpful. Curious to know if fellow LG B6 (or similar OLED display) owners are seeing this effect as much as I am. I'm not up on all the tech lingo so its makes it hard to search for something that you dont know what it is called. I've tried.
