LG has in turn rolled out to its 2017 TVs. Cue this second profile update from Dolby. LG has apparently already received this new profile, and has just started internal testing of it with its 2017 and 2016 models. It can’t yet give a definite date for when this hopefully final Dolby Vision HDMI fix might roll out, but assuming that it’s not as heavy as the initial fix, my hope would be that it won’t take long. Owners of 2016 Dolby Vision LG OLED TVs may have to wait a little longer. But the LG representative I spoke with, who has been involved with all of the Dolby Vision issues and software updates to date, assured me that there is no doubt over whether the 2016 OLED TVs will actually receive the Dolby Vision fix. It is definitely going to happen.
Hopefully ALL Dolby Vision titles will soon be free of the raised Dolby Vision raised black levels bug. Naturally I’ll be sure to let you know on my Forbes channel as soon as the new Dolby profile update starts to roll out to LG’s 2017 and 2016 TVs. In the mean time, it’s worth adding that according to my LG contact, the latest Dolby Vision profile will be installed on all LG’s 2018 Dolby Vision TVs from launch.
