  • The Low-Cost, Backlit Universal Remote I Use
    I never liked the LG "Magic Remotes" included with LG TVs. I also didn't like Logitech's Universal Remotes. The best fit for my needs (features/ease of use/cost) has been the large button (all backlit) GE Universal Remote at Walmart, bought in store. (Brickseek's in store stock check used to check local stores. I paid under $15 in store back then, but prices change over time.)

    For my LG OLED TVs, I use LG code 6021 (from LG TV numbers in the printed manual in the package), that has the * button used for Info. (The Info button was removed on later LG bundled TV remotes.) I also used it to replace the tiny OEM remote of Samsung's UBD-K8500 UHD Player.

    I'd almost given up on low-cost Universal Remotes, but this one doesn't feel cheap IMHO.
    (I've bought 3 of them in-store, used for years now. Appx. 7.5" Long. Uses 2 AA batteries.)

  • (June 14, 2022) LG UBKM9, UBK90, UP970 4K UHD Player Firmware Update
    Available via network update check. Typically no download or change info at LG website.
    New Firmware BD39.338.91220.C, and Servo updated to UP17SON0019.
    (Note above firmware version number periods as shown in Software Update panel,
    after the update, Software Info menu item shows BD.39338.91220.C.)

(The Update window shows the Current "SW Version" (firmware) and "Driver Version" (Servo), but under "Update Ver." they only show the new "SW" (firmware) version number - the "Driver Version" (Servo) is listed as "Not Found".) So check the player's Servo version info after the firmware update has been applied to see the new Servo version shown above. (I've had a UP970 and UP870 for years and this only the second Servo update.)

    Still has no Auto mode for 24Hz vs 60Hz setting. See previous notes below.
    (And still no way to disable HDMI Control (CEC). Some use a CEC Blocking HDMI adapter.)

An affected owner said reloading HDMI port shortcuts were not retained after the TV was turned off. A user that reported this to LG support replied they suggested a factory reset. (Record any custom settings before doing that.)

    Change info for 03.20.80 update:

      (Again, the same note as many previous updates.)
    Reportedly fixes HDCP 2.2/2.3 problems with some recent 1 series TV builds.
    (A guess was a component change due to supply issues with the original part.)
    Some said after the update they had to shut down & unplug the TV for a few minutes for the HDCP issue to be fixed. I wondered if they had quick start enabled. I never use that feature.
    (When I unplug my TV, I then press the power button on the TV to discharge capacitors.)
    If you still have HDCP issues, try resetting the TV. (Record any non-standard settings first.)

    • Fixing minor bugs in software (no details)
    BTW: Some have said they've recently seen pop-ups saying "restarting this app to free up memory", even though no app was running. My first question was if they had Quick Start enabled. (If so disable it.) One user said he had to unplug the TV and let power drain off. (Pressing power button on the TV when disconnected is one method.) I've never seen this issue personally, but I'm not running the latest C6/E6 firmware. The B6 uses a different SOC, but a B6 owner also reported this after the B6's 05.60.20 update.

    (Reminder: How to Turn Off AD Tracking, Home Auto Launch & Promotion.)

  • (May 8, 2020) LG UBKM9, UBK90, UP970 4K UHD Player Firmware Update
    (See above for a later firmware and servo update in June 2022.)
    May 2020 Firmware was BD39.338.91219.C, and Servo updated to UP17SONA018.
    (Note above firmware version number periods as shown in Software Update panel,
    after the update, Software Info menu item shows BD.39338.91219.C.)

    I saw a forum post that said they emailed support and was later told this firmware update was just an "Application" update. I believe it's more than that, since the UP870 model also got a Firmware (and Servo) update, and it has no Apps. (No WiFi, Ethernet port only for getting firmware updates.)
    I believe the Firmware & Servo (drive) updates are for playback/compatibility issues.
    I confirmed that 3D still works after this update. Tested with LG E6 TV and Avatar 3D disc.
    (Still has no Auto mode for 24Hz vs 60Hz setting. See previous notes below.
    And still no way to disable HDMI Control (CEC). Some use a CEC Blocking HDMI adapter.)



  • (May 8, 2020) LG UBK80, UP875, UP870 4K UHD Player Firmware Update
    (See above for a later firmware and servo update in 2022.)
    May 2020 Firmware was BD38.819.91219.C, and Servo updated to UP17SONA018.
    (Note above firmware version number periods as shown in Software Update panel,
    after the update, Software Info menu item showed BD.38819.91219.C.)

    Like most player firmware updates, I assume it's to fix issues/improve compatibility.
    As I mentioned in the UBKM9/UBK90/UP970 update above, I don't think this is only an "Application" update, as the UP870 has no Apps, and also got the same Servo (drive) update.

    3D Still Works after this Update
    After seeing 1 complaint from an owner (with LG G6 TV), I tested my updated LG 870 (and 970 above) and confirmed that 3D still works after this update. I used my LG E6 TV and the same 3D disc (Avatar 3D) he used. (Make sure 3D is set to On in the player settings. Player set to 24Hz.)
    Everything in the HDMI chain must support 3D, including the Receiver. If in doubt, connect the player directly to the 3D TV. (My Avatar 3D disc boots up with a 3D mode note. The disc's Play menu offers a 3D or 2D option.)

    And I didn't notice any increase in drive noise. (There were many early complaints on LG UP970 player noise, but that wasn't a common problem with my players. I did have one disc (Flight of the Phoenix remake) that was out of balance (off-center label IIRC, but also check the disc edge for excess plastic) and sounded like a buzz saw in every player. A replacement disc was OK.)

    My UP870 is a spare now, replaced by a Panasonic DP-UB420 ($149.99 on sale).
    Surprised to see a Firmware & Servo update for the UP870. ($25 in WM store, January 2018.)
    (I wish they would change the Eject's screen to something other than a solid bright white, and hoped for an "Auto" output Hz option, but it still has only 24Hz or 60Hz setting as noted years ago.)

    Owner's Tip for LG OLED TV AirPlay Problems:
    If you have problems using Airplay with these LG TVs, some users said disabling HomeKit helped. Details in LG Forum post Can't connect more than one device via Airplay to LG OLED C9. Scroll down to the user's second post to see the tip notes.
    (This was posted in Oct. 2019, later LG or Apple updates may resolve this problem.)

Like the 'Security Update' for later TV models, it included an update for the (Bluetooth) LG Remote Control.

  • (May 12, 2018) LG UP870/875 4K/UHD Player Firmware Update
    (See above for a later firmware update.)
    May 2018 Firmware version BD38.819.80420.C. In "Software Info" menu it's listed as BD.38819.80420.C, and also lists "Servo Ver: UP17SON0017" - the same servo version as before. As usual, no info on changes/fixes and no firmware download on LG support page. This $25 Walmart sale UP870 in January has been quiet (knock on wood) and so far reliable. Checked the menus after the update - still no way to disable HDMI Control (CEC), but not an issue for me as I don't use ARC or CEC. (If you do, there are CEC blocking HDMI adapters under $20.)


  • Notes on 3D OLED TVs - CC Times, Burn-In, Bad Pixels, Crosstalk Tests
    A 55E6 sample shows much shorter CC times than normal, based on other 2016 and 2015 OLED models tested. Details on this page. Updated with notes on Screen Uniformity, Banding, Tint, IR/Burn-In and Dead/Stuck pixel Tests, 3D Crosstalk Tests and screen tilt.


  • LG UP970 4K UHD Player Dolby Vision Firmware Updates
    Update: See above for a later firmware update.
    (April 17th, 2018 - FW BD.39338.80329.C. No change info. Servo still UP17SON0017.)
    (March 6th, 2018 - FW BD.39338.80220.C. No change info. Servo still UP17SON0017.)
    LG UP970 Dolby Vision Firmware Update available via the player's update check, at least in some areas. (There have never been any firmware update downloads at LG's support page for the UP970.) First report said Feb. 8th Dolby Vision enabled firmware was version BD.39338.80207.C. ("Servo Ver: UP17SON0017", same as UP870 below) And that Netflix App still always in Dolby Vision mode, just like the Feb. 5th release. As noted earlier, the Feb. 5th update (quickly pulled) locked the player to region A regardless of original region code. To date, LG 4K players still DO NOT support Sony's "low latency" Dolby Vision enabled TVs.

    FYI: Some AVRs aren't Dolby Vision compatible. If yours isn't, use the UHD Player's main HDMI port cable direct to the DV TV and the player's 2nd HDMI connection to the AVR for Audio.

    As mentioned earlier, for 4K/UHD HDR movies remember to select 24Hz in Settings -> Display -> Display Mode. (If set to 60Hz, LG will output at 8-bit 4:2:2. If set to 24Hz, output is 4:4:4 12-bit. See previous notes below.)



  • (Jan. 31, 2018) $25 LG UP870 4K/UHD Player in some Walmarts (very YMMV)
    Saw web posts earlier in January about the LG UP870 4K/UHD (HDR-10, 3D/Blu-ray/DVD/CD) Player in stores at some Walmarts ringing up $49, or $25 in some cases. (This is a bare-bones player - single HDMI 2.0a, no Dolby Vision, no Apps, no WiFi. Ethernet (for firmware updates only), USB and Optical Audio port. PDF user manual, specs, etc are here.) Walmart's Web page showed 'see price in cart' at post time (1/31/2018), but again reports said the $25 price was in stores with stock. (It was still that price as of Jan. 31st, 2018 at a local Walmart when I bought one there.) LG's UP870 page had $199.99 MSRP (?? wow, I thought it was $99.xx at retailers before. The higher end UP970 had sometimes been on sale for $150 in stores.) While shopping at Walmart I asked a clerk to check stock in the back. (None on the shelf, but brickseek showed 5 in stock at this store priced at $25.) Initial clerk comment was they were all gone, but agreed to check the back stockroom and brought 2 out. Price check showed $25, so I bought one (should have gotten both at that price). Again YMMV as by now all stores may be OOS. (Also saw some reports of scalpers buying all stock at some locations.)

    This UP870 (September 2017 build) sample shipped with firmware BD37.226.70710.C, updated to BD37.226.80117.C via Ethernet. In "Software Info" menu it's listed as BD.37226.80117.C, and also lists "Servo Ver: UP17SON0017". As usual, no info on changes/fixes and no firmware download on LG support page. UP870 seems quiet so far (To date, only the Last Jedi 4K disc made any noticeable vibration - in main disc menu primarily), and a steal at $25. The small Remote has only 1 battery, IR signal seems weak. No way to disable HDMI Control (CEC), although I don't use it, so not an issue personally. (If you need CEC or ARC, get a CEC blocking HDMI adapter.)
    Simple user interface, but the bright solid white screen when the tray is ejected is a really bad idea IMO. I was pleasantly surprised to see the UP870 has a Subtitle shift (position) option.

    LG Player Output Frame Rate Setting Note:
    (Note: The below info was posted before 4K/UHD 60P discs (i.e. Gemini Man, Billy Lynn's Long Halftime Walk) were released. I'm not sure how these LG players output those UHD 60P discs if set to 24Hz. LG really should have an "Auto" framerate setting. I don't know if the UHD/60P 8-bit was fixed in May 2020 firmware updates for UBKM9, UBK90, UP970 & UBK80, UP875, UP870 players.)
    The UP870/875 and UP970 have a setting for either 24Hz or 60Hz output (no "Auto") in the Player's home screen Settings -> Display -> Display Mode. If set to 24Hz, DVDs play at 30Hz (and look poor typically), so should be set to 60Hz for DVD playback, and switched to 24Hz when playing Blu-rays - especially 4K/UHD HDR discs, as if set to 60Hz the output will be 8-Bit. (HDR10 content is 10-bit. Dolby Vision FEL content is 12-bit (for "TV led" DV, it's sent over HDMI in RGB 8-bit container), but the UP870/875 player doesn't support Dolby Vision.) My receiver reported 8-Bit 4:2:2 for UHD HDR discs when the UP870 was set to 60Hz - when set to 24Hz, it reported 12-Bit 4:4:4. (It's not unusual for some players to output 12-bit for 10-bit UHD discs, even the Oppo 203 does that (usually 12-bit 4:2:2). Both Blu-ray and 4K/UHD disc content is 4:2:0, but chroma upscaling is done by the player and/or TV.)
