Quad Step Noise Reduction (colour debanding) stopped working after Firmware 04.10.31 applied in mid March 2019

Question

Since update 04.10.31 was applied to my OLED55C8PLA TV, the Quad Step Noise Reduction “circuit” has completely stopped working. The “circuit” was previously activated by using the MPEG Noise Reduction menu. I always had it set to “Auto” and, by doing so, the awful colour banding effect was almost completely eliminated. From the attached pictures you will see that the picture now has awful colour banding regardless of which MPEG Noise Reduction setting is used.
 
This topic is currently being hotly debated on various online forums and people all over Europe are moaning that LG has deleted a major feature they (LG) actually used to sell their 2018 OLED TVs. 
 
I have actually been legally advised that as LG actually showed the benefits of Quad Step Noise Reduction when they advertised and promoted the 2018 OLED TV range, I should have right of financial redress against LG.
 
Whilst I am waiting for LG to release a firmware update to correct the bug in 04.10.31, I suggested that an LG mobile engineer visits my house to reinstall the previous version of the firmware so I can get the feature (that I paid for) back working as soon as possible.
 
I have sent various pictures (as attached to this question) of the colour banding now being produced now that Quad Step Noise Reduction (“decontouring”) is not working. I would stress that previously with MPEG Noise Reduction setting on High or Auto, the banding effect was eradicated.
 
So far, I am having trouble getting U.K. customer services to understand that in trying to solve other issues, Update 04.10.31 has caused this major problem. 
 
I would strongly suggest that everyone holds back from applying 04.10.31 if you don’t want to lose such an important feature. My picture quality has gone from being fantastic to, at times, unwatchable!

      Hi there, I've just bought an oled55c8pla and vocals instructions are not working. When I try to use them a message pops up saying temporary connection error with server. Retry later (6022). On web browser vocal dictation is working perfectly so magic remote is working as well. Any tips? Already checked for updates (latest is 04.10.30), reset done, all agreement on user allowed, but nothing is solving. A solution will be really appreciated. Thanks

      I recently copied some backup folders (like steam game backup folders, etc) from my PC to my USB drive that's connected to my LG TV running webOS.

So i assume that it scans all the folders to show any viewable media content .. and the new folders I copied have a lot of files and folders in them so thats adding the time to it.   So my question is, is there a way to p
