Hello guys and gals,
I am not sure if this question is for here, but i tried reading some posts on the internet and could not find a reasonable explanation or solution to my problem, so here it is.
I bought my TV (official model i think is OLED55CX3LA) about 2 weeks ago along with LG Soundbar SN4, connected via optical cabel.
In few words, the setup is as follows:
- Picture mode - Expert (Dark Room) with Gamma set to 2.2 and TruMotion to Natural
- Sound is set to Cinema mode and Optical+Internal TV Speaker
No AI features are turned on and TV is connected to internet via ethernet cable. I have set-up box connected to the TV, a laptop, both with HDMI, and streaming with Serviio over dlna.
Now the issue. On 3rd-4th day the TV started crashing only while watching from the set-up box. The picture will freeze, some times a high pitch noise appears, the TV is unresponsive. This goes on for 10-20 seconds, the TV turns off by itself and after 5 seconds it is turned on. Sometimes it does it once and not again, sometimes there is a day without doing it, sometimes does it constantly one after another unless i change the channel, or change from set-up box to DLNA for example.
I changed HDMI ports, i changed HDMI cables - no effect. I thought it is something in the signal from the set-up box (sometimes it is very low quality, or whatever else), but yesterday same thing happened while watching 2160p movie from DLNA.
You can see what happens here:

There have been numerous articles over the pst year suggesting that LG would roll AirPlay support onto the older 2018 model OLED TV's. This was even confirmed by a support person on the chat session for the Australian support site. They said it would be released before the end of 2020.
My TV is OLED65C7T and is currently on firmware 05.80.55.
Last week I asked the "chat now" person again and they said it was not happening. I'm not sure any of them know what they are talking about.
Can anyone shed any light on this?

Please consider adding a new menu for 2017 OLED's in HDR Game mode preset called "Static Tone Mapping" to picture options with a selection of 4000 nits (default) or 1000 nits.
The reason so many complain about dim HDR on 2017 OLED's is down to an overly tone mapped image, game consoles HDR titles are mastered in 1000 nits range, LG's default tone mapping is set to 4000 nits and because the consoles do not send any HDR metadata, LG tone maps 1000 nits content to 4000 nits. We know this is the cause as advanced tools like HD Fury Vertex can trick the TV into thinking it's 1000 nits content and give correct looking HDR (very complex thing to setup far beyond normal users).
This is entirely fixable by giving us a menu under game mode to force the TV to tone map to 1000 nits instead. If you read around online I'm almost certain this is what the special "Active HDR dynamic contrast = low" under Cinema mode does but this setting is not the same under any other preset. Maybe the "Active HDR" trick is not possible under game mode but forcing the TV to 1000 nits tone mapping is because the HD Fury Vertex can do it so the TV has the capability.
The 2018 models do not have this issue as they have "Dynamic Tone Mapping" under picture options so please throw us 2017 owners a bone on this, thanks.
(Yes game consoles could possible fix this by sending metadata but that's unlikely).

I have two LG OLEDs. I have given each a name in the WebOS. Occasionally when a TV is powered on, I am first requested to enter the TV name along with the dialog to enter text with the on screen keyboard. I can enter anything and it is accepted and I get past that screen and then normal operation follows. This happens on both TVs albeit only occasionally. It is a real nuisance when this happens and I see no need for this.
Has anyone else experienced this and if so, is there a solution to disable this behavior? Is there some setting that I have missed?
