A little less analogue, and a lot more crap.

One is the 650V, the other is the 605V ?

Regardless, all manufacturers supply different models for continental Europe and the UK, where we get the subsidy - not always passed on - for the enhanced EPG, logo, manual and packaging.

Ive just bought the LG 43UH650 so Im looking forwad to playing with it next week and seeing the capabilites of modern tvs.

The ancient old 28" Panny crt now has serious image deficiencies, several blue blobs on the screen which are slowly growing, so its been declared EOL......

650V I think. It wont be a particularly smart tv - no point connecting it to the internet on our lousy bb connection. Might try some mkv top of the pops files on it though :D

Over the weekend I shall be doing a major reorganisation of the tv corner & seeing if I can get the 19E satellite feed working properly.

Edit - Yup its the 650V

Don't forget your new TV has wifi :-rofl2

Another nice feature for us satellite enthusiasts is the multi screen you can set what hdmi port you want to use at any time, for instance below screen shot is tv tuner to the right on 19.2 4K/HDR channel while scanning on a set top box on the left screen,

You can have up to five satellite boxes connected if you wanted and swap what two boxes you want to monitor, now that's what you call smart :)

What is S2X actually? I am very surprised any freesat tv's have a blind scan tbh

I have my eye on the OLED B6V from LG...does anyone know if this model has blindscsn etc? Really want to know if it can decode snd display 4k direct from satellite btw

Anyone know all this ?
TIA

You would be better off with the OLEDB6 as it uses a true 10 bit panel and has a good chance of being updated to HLG standard as well, the UH650V is only 8bit + 2 Dithering to make up for 10 bit HDR

LG 55UH650V: 54.6" LG 55UH650V - Specifications

LG OLED55B6V: 54.6" LG OLED55B6V - Specifications
