    X95J line could be a good pick up before X95K arriving if you don't care about the latest and greatest. But damn X95K will bring quite a lot to the table while the X90K just a repeat of X90 J
    That's what I'm thinking, like rage2 said a ways back, all new TVs look great. I just want it to do 120hz ps5 gaming and good TV viewing

    Stadia is hurting pretty bad, they did have the $22 or buy one $30 US game and get the hardware - for US users a while back. I actually want to try it if they ever do the same deal for Canada.

    I have noticed that if you get HDR for playing games, it doesn't really need to be all that accurate - you can always fudge the adjustment sliders to configure the range. Its the overall max intensity that is important.

    If you care about VRR, I would stay away from the 90 line. So far I have not heard anything good on the VRR implementation on X90H. X90J and X90K may follow the same fate as they are using the same MediaTek SoC.

    Fortunately my X90H is just a breakfast TV. So not really picky on the details. Talking heads looks good that's enough for me.

    Rumor: It might actually be cheaper to produce larger 80+ inch QDOLED panels, just for the idea that if its smaller - its difficult to get all the quantum dots in the right place. Crazyness.

    If they can do this at scale, a solar panel with only blue to red should be trivial.

    Hey Beyond, finally decided to do some TV swapping through the house/upgrade. Snagged one of the 65" LG C1 based upon everything read and was installing it yesterday. Was hoping someone on beyond is a bit more of a sound bar guru as I'm behind.

    With the new TV, I also purchased a LG SN7Y sound bar w/ woofer to go with it and therein lies my issue. My tv that now exiting from the bonus room was a 65" Samsung but was paired with a Samsung HW-H750 that I bought back in 2014 together.
    New TV is great, but the LG sound bar sounds like an airy POS. I saw it at costco for $399 figured worth a shot and I found that having a same brand worked well previously for pairing/remotes in the past so thought it was a safe purchase.

    Any good recommendations for a setup that can compete/better my Samsung HW-H750 (moving it to the main floor with the samsung tv) and it definitely doesn't need to be LG. Ideally something that doesn't have a price tag of $1xxx+. Recommendations are greatly appreciated.

    I bought a Samsung HW-Q800A on Boxing Day and I’m super happy with it. Got it for 799.99 on sale. Rtings has a lot of good soundbar reviews of you want to take a look there

    Does anyone have a good TV installer they could recommend? Hoping to find someone to mount a Frame tv in the living room but hide the AppleTV/cords, etc.

    Hoping to avoid using that box, there's a network port and power on the wall (proper backing behind the drywall too).

    Renzo at YYC TV Installations is really good. Used him twice now to mount some TVs including a Frame TV.

    Pretty sure “that box” is non optional.

    The tv doesn’t have any internal electronics it’s all in the connect box.

    You will need a different tv.

    Haha yup. That box is the brains of the TV.

    If you have a cubby somewhere for an apple TV, surely it can be expanded to fit the Frame box thing.

    I haven't even opened the box for the TV yet...so it's probably in there. There's not really a cubby for this. It's above a fireplace/mantle...

    Suggestions?

    Setup a cable run to the left or the right for the Samsung box.

    Or. Return the tv and get a normal one.

    The whole reason it is so slim is none of that crap is inside the tv.

    Can someone explain the North American obsession with putting TVs up so high you're craning your neck upwards to watch em?

    I'd prefer it lower as well, but this is what we have to work with. I think wall mounting (with tilt) is better than having a media console table/TV stand in our living room. For a basement or bonus room that works fine.

    Can't embed but that's a decent solution that's pretty easy to do.

    TV above the fireplace is hardly neck craning territory. Unless maybe you use tatami mats for your living room furniture.

    That guy looks like a psychopath in his intro/closing haha.

    That's an aesthetically pleasing solution. I'd probably be inclined to open up a bunch of the knockouts on that box so the heat has somewhere to go.

    Thanks Kenny, I think that's a great option. It's going to be annoying because they braced all the space between the studs with 2x6's. I'll reach out to Renzo to get his help on this.
