    I've put 03.30.05 on my CX this morning. All seems to work well.

    Dolby Vision at 120Hz with Freesync enabled
    Fixed refresh rate values on the Freesync info box as well.

    Had to Change the batteries in the Magic Remote again last night.
    It only gets used for settings/Hub etc. 99% of the time we use the SkyQ remote.
    I have emailed support and will report back...

    Used a service remote I bought off ebay to update it in engineering mode.

    Don't do it.

    It's betaware. Some people have been stuck with engineering firmware for years because the final release numbers have been below what they downloaded.

    Just wait for the final release.

    You can downgrade the firmware after. I did mine last night.

    I've been enjoying my 65" C8 since I purchased from new several years ago and frankly am still happy with it. However now I'm back in to console gaming the itch has started to explore 120hz/VRR and all the other good stuff HDMI2.1 would add. I was going to be quite happy to pull the trigger on either a 77" LG C1 or 65" G1.

    - But no -

    Why oh why did LG pull DTS from the new models? Dolby monopoly?? One of my main uses on the C8 is using the built in Plex app to stream my movies from my NAS. Whilst I've owned an Nvidia Shield in the past I'd prefer to keep a simple setup as it simply just works for me. I understand it doesn't support DTS natively or even pass through. Whilst Plex could potentially transcode audio, I understand it may then have ramifications on subtitles/HDR.

    As much as I like the LG brand and product offering - it's pretty much ruled it out for me now. Should I now wait to see what the 2022 releases look like from both LG and others?
