Normal operation of "Energy Saving" setting

Question

TV: 2017 model 49UJ6500

When you reset the A/V (mute button 3 times), you see the default for non-HDR is "Auto" and default

for HDR is "off".  When you switch back and forth between HDR and non-HDR this energy saving setting is

switched automatically.

I quite like "Auto" for regular material (non-HDR) it does a good job.  On the other hand,

the setting of "Off" for HDR is terrible, especially with Amazon Prime.  The bright highlights are too bright

and the dark shadow area's are a murky grey.  Cannot really compensate with backlight, contrast

or brighness adjustments, it's ineffective for this problem.  However, to compensate for this TV's mediocre

contrast range (very obvious in HDR), you can set HDR Energy Saving to minimum or medium and you can make it watchable

 

The problem is, as soon as you do this, when you revert back to non-HDR material, it no longer automatically switches

back to Energy Saver "Auto", but it stays on the setting you used when HDR was active.

I don't know if this is a design limitation or some oversight in the firmware, but this is a big inconvenience.

 

I've got no idea if newer LG TV's also do this, but I would certianly check this prior to purchasing a newer LG TV.

If my conclusions about this "problem" are wrong, please enlighten me.

Thanks.

      The the past three (3) weeks Sling App looses my login credentials and/or lists and error message.  I've had to uninstall and reinstall the Sling App multiple times on both of my LG OLED 55" & 65" tv's.  I've contacted Sling and their customer services noted they are aware of this issue with LG and some Samsung TV's and have no updates on when it will be resolved.  Anyone have the same issue? Greatly appreciated any suggestions on how to cure this issue., thx.

      I have been trying for 2 days to get ARC to send audio to my new Anthem AVR from streaming sources. First off I installed a new Premium certified HDMI cable. I have enabled ARC and the Simplink (CEC) in the LG, digital sound is set it to Auto. I have enabled the same (ARC and CEC in the Anthem AVR. I always get the screen on the Anthem displaying "No Signal"! Is there some other hidden or hard to find setting to get the LG's ARC channel to work properly? Anyone else been through this problem and found a solution?

      I have a LG OLED C9 and use a soundbar with optical. If I use Bluetooth headphones and terminate the connection, the webOS always jumps back to internal speakers, which I don't use. Is there any way to set it to automatically return the soundbar (optical)?
