Thanks Duffuss for your contribution.
I still have my old plasma and have yet to purchase a new 55“ TV. I have a few questions please:
1. Which model LG 55” did you buy? Was it this year’s C7?
2. You say you watch Sky sport on it and the picture is great. Do you have basic Sky TV, or like me have Sky High Definition (MySkyHDI)?
3. You said you have none of the issues mentioned. Does this include the blurred artifacts present in the YouTube review by HDTV Test, where the 2017 LG TV’s displayed motion blur in some instances when sent a 1080i broadcast signal (Sky high definition TV NZ use a 1080i signal). The review I am referring to is https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F9OvPfPd8s0&t=11s starting at 7 minutes 45?
4. Do you have your TV in a room where there is a lot of ambient/natural light during the day and if so, does it produce the magenta (purple) tint reflection (it’s the light reflecting off the TV screen that produces the tint). If so, is this an issue for you? A previous contributor PsychoSmiley mentioned he had this issue with his 2016 LG B6. Apparently this problem has been reduced in this year’s LG models, although the Panasonic 2017 EZ950U OLED still has this problem, which puts me off buying this TV.
You mention the picture on ESPN is not as good as on the other Sky Sport channels - I have no idea how this could be, as they are both HD channels.
