Got Shadow of the Tomb Raider and I can't just do the HDR Calibration on my C8. Supposedly I should make the white rectangle full white but it never goes full white even with cracking up HDR Luminance.

God I hate these HDR calibrations...

Would suggest similarly for the 25/30 foot versions?

iirc, people start hitting HDMI (HDCP?) handshake problems the longer the cable is. While I have had such issues with my PS4 Pro regardless of cable, I did try some off-brand via Amazon and it increased such issues exponentially. To the point where I returned it.

LGs have dynamic tone mapping. Turn that off then do the calibration. After that, I’d turn it back on.

it’s because the game is locked at 2000nits and your Tv is locked at 4000.

Hopefully they will patch in HGIG for the C8 too
Oh well, I put it in almost max. I swear the first second the area appears it looks whiter and without a logo and then the logo appears, that's why I thought it could be ABL related. Or maybe my eyes are fried lol

I really don't expect LG to put HGIG on the C8, they are terrible in terms of updating older sets with new features.

if that’s the case then just set the luminance to max and let dynamic tone mapping do its thing.

Usually, as long as you're dealing with quality cables and components, I've heard you're good until 50 ft which is when even with quality cables things can get spotty, dunno how true it is tho as I've never actually needed to run cables that long. These Monoprice cables are great cables, so I don't see why they wouldn't be at 25/30 ft too. But I've only used the shorter ones personally.

Halo Reach on PC has completely busted HDR. Doesn't even seem like it was implemented honestly.

HDR on Windows continues to be whack

I have a question about the HGIG on the DTM, is it only for gaming ? should I put DTM to off for HDR movies and stuff or I could just use the HGIG feature ?
