That sucks, i'm still holding onto my Harmony 880 that I've had for 10+ years.  Battery is getting old though, not sure how much time it will be before I have to figure out something new.

I had one of those and a few others.....they all died :(

For anyone who ordered an OLED these past few weeks, don't forget to apply for your free LG Bluetooth Speaker!  Ends 11/22, I got mine and its really nice worth $100...   https://lgtvpromoti

My favorite thing ever... Mantel Mount So awesome, 3 years in.

The OLED sale just went live at Costco and I just ordered this 65" CX model for $1850

I bought this same TV on Sept 26th for $2250. I was pissed when I saw this post.

But! Costco is the greatest. They offer price protection within 30 days. I was over the 30 days but thought I would apply anyway.

Just found out they credited my account $400!!!  💰

Did you get the Hitch 4k Four pack?

I did, was on sale at Best Buy.  I’m not a fan of The Birds but it’s worth it for the other 3.

I plan to put it in my home office so I can quit using my phone to stream music while I work. I can essentially leave it plugged in to a USB port full time if I desire.

So we are redoing the kitchen as I type this. Counters went in on Sat, faucets, water, appliances on Monday. Backsplash yesterday. Grout today. So we are putting the kitchen back together and plug in the little kitchen TV. One of my kids stepped on it and it's gone. Finding another 28 inch TV in a big box store (or any store) is impossible. The wife doesn't want to wait a week for one, so she wants a 24 inch. Ah well, it saves me money.

Decided to get a couple cheapies that maybe the teen will watch with me.   Bought the 4K player AD linked in the thread, and at Best Buy bought Rogue One for $9 and Spiderman: Homecoming for $15.   I also have Apocalypse Now at home.     Now it's time to write down some titles I don't have at the house for the start of my Christmas list.  I am sure the Hitchcock pack will be on there since I only have Psycho on BR.  

ETA:  I was disappointed to see that only Phantom Thread showed up for PTA movies when I searched for 4Ks.

I'm in the market for a couple of new TV's but with one caveat regarding sound. I would prefer to listen to the sound over headphones, preferably BT. Is that a thing with these smart TV's?

I want to put a TV in our loft but don't necessarily want the sound to carry all over the house, hence the headphone requirement.

I use Apple TV and AirPods. Works great. Get Pros if you need sound canceling

Yeah I imagine over the next few years we will see a lot of movies make their way to 4K. It’s a very small list right now relatively speaking.

4K's are not that expensive. I just bought Full Metal Jacket for $16. The Back to the future trilogy is cheap.
If you don't mind used, Ebay is your friend. Everything I bought from there has been good. We're talking
Matrix trilogy, D Craig Bond collection, Mission Impossible collection, and Star Wars 6-9.

My local shop is bullmoose.com. They have some good stuff. Movies, along with a lot of music.
Free shipping for orders over $35.

Yeah and if you shop this time of the year, tons of deals. I just got all 3 John Wicks for about $30 new. The amount and variety of titles available is still pretty limited though. For example, Chinatown, Casablanca, Godfather trilogy, Citizen Kane, Amadeus, LA Confidential, Boogie Nights, etc

New OLED was delivered yesterday and picked up a Panasonic bluray player and will start buying some movies to enjoy on it. Grabbed The Shining for $9.99 and the John Wick movies for $7.99 each from Best Buy. Will pick up a few more tomorrow I'm sure. 

Blu-ray or 4K player?

I haven't bought any 4K Dvds yet. Kind of excited. The only problem is, nothing has been produced in months. You go to the store, and it is nothing but B movies. Got a new sound system, great TV. And notta.

The Xbox X looks fantastic. Wish we had more entertainment during this time.

Yeah it’s all stuff thats getting released for the first one on 4K but isn’t necessarily new. Going to be awhile on that. Netflix has new stuff though.

I got that as well. I just don't want to triple up on Dvds. Regular, Blu Ray, 4k. Yet we still are idiots. And probably will.

Was getting the lip sync issue again on the LG. Switched the sound to PCM and it appeared to immediately fix the issue. So if anyone has a lip sync only on old commercials or live TV, (i.e. not every channel) it is worth a shot.

Bleh, edit to add, the fix was temporary. Switching modes fixed it for awhile, then it came back. Very disappointed in the LG OLED. Apparently we'll deal with these audio issues as long as we have this TV.

I haven't paid attention to this subplot in the thread - I assume you've contacted customer support and all that?  Can you get a replacement TV?

Has anyone used any kind of ambient lighting on your TV?  I was looking at something like thisAmazon link Is this just gimmicky or does it really add to the viewing experience? 

I do and if you're watching in mainly a dark room it makes a ton of difference to me. Immediately, less eye strain.

It's a well known LG issue apparently. Unfortunate the five or six sites I looked at that recommended this TV all failed to mention it. I did sign up for the LG Forum and am still waiting for the "Please confirm your email" email to come through so I can post. I have read that the issue is tied to 2.0 HDMI trying to send signals to 2.1 devices but I don't think that is my issue given it is a TV speaker.

Tried one other thing I saw somewhere. I hard-wired the TV to the router and turned off the wifi connection. Long shot but what the heck.

What I have learned from this is that if you buy ANY LG TV, this may be an issue. It seems wide-spread across their entire inventory.

Any recommendations for an inexpensive soundbar that is acceptable quality? I'm not very picky, but just want something better than the TV speakers. Any great deals today that I should snag?

@nysfl2  - there are a couple on the last page of the Black Friday thread.  I think one looked decent and was sub $100.

I use it and it does help with the eye strain...also makes colors pop more and just overall looks cool.  I did some pretty good research on it a while back and what's recommended is the white light behind it...the colors are more gimmicky and for just visual effect.

This is what I have.  Specific K value of light for best viewing.

Aaaanndd??? How does it look!? 

It's in my cart and I don't want it to disappear from stock before I hit Submit!

At this point, I'm thinking of waiting for 16k, but this is a pretty good deal.

Gorgeous!  Smash that Check Out button.  You won't regret it.  You'll be the talk of the neighborhood.

It'll be close to what your old projector was :lmao:
