19 Nov 2019 - TVDB are still in the process of fixing a number of bugs that have broken the TVDB scraper and any add-on that relies on TVDB data. TVDB are still working to rectify the problems.

My idea of smooth might be your idea of judder. Surely there has to be some way of knowing what it's actually outputting? It seems crazy not to be able to know what the tv is actually producing in hz .Surely when I ask my tv what it's showing via the info button and it says 24hz then it's just 24hz.

That depends whether the info button is telling you what it's input is or what it's output is. Chances are it's telling you the input - as it's unlikely it's display 24p inputs at 24Hz...

If you aren't sensitive to 3:2 - and it sounds like you aren't if you haven't noticed it - then why worry? If you are happy with your TV then you're happy with it. If you aren't - then you aren't.

I wasn't happy with mine so I replaced it.

Suspect the chances are your LG is displaying 24p sources at a nice symmetric multiple so isn't using 3:2. However my point is that just because a TV says "24p" on it's OSD it doesn't mean it isn't displaying 24p with 3:2, it's usually an indication of the input format NOT the output format.

For instance my UHD set will happily trigger Frame Rate Interpolation and make 24p film sources look like video (aka the Soap Opera Effect) but it still says 1080/24p on the OSD, even though it is probably doing something like a 1080/60p or 1080/120p interpolated output (this isn't 3:2 or 5:5 - it's making up frames in between to smooth out the motion and make everything look it was shot at 60fps or higher) Of course I disabled this as soon as I bought the TV - as I hate artificial processing of pictures. But other people love it...

I don't really see why it seems unlikely that the output source is not being displayed. Surely the viewer is much more interested in what the output is displaying and not the input. Also if I use the tvhz app to force the hz to change to say 50hz firstly I can immediately see that the output has changed on the nexus players home screen. It looks different and is not quite as smooth looking. And the osd shows 50hz. If I then play say Netflix or YouTube on the nexus player it still shows 50hz and again looks different from the nexus players standard 60hz. I then play kodi witn a 24p video file input and it *still* shows 50hz on the osd. (And of course looks totally different from when the osd is showing 24hz) Everything points to the osd displaying the output not the input.


In addition the tv plays 24hz absolutely perfectly apart from the tell tale tiny glitch every 40 seconds or so. Which indicates the output is 24 but not the 23.976 the wetek core will produce.

Also, when being fed a 24 source the tv automatically switches to real cinema and that's when the osd shows 24hz.

It seems to me that an osd displaying the input is pointless and useless. The osd showing the actual hz output makes sense and is useful.

And everything about my testing indicates it's the output not the input. I could ring lg I suppose........
