    I agree with you 1000% Epedemic! It IS nonsense! I even tried to make that point to Google support, the fact that it once WORKED PERFECTLY!!!! They did not seem to believe me.

    The problems I was having were not only with the CCU however. I was noticing strange behavior from apps on my Fire TV as well. For example, the MA app on FTV said " this device does not support 4k playback" ???? I opened up support cases with everybody I could think of: Vudu, Netflix, Google, Amazon, Movies Anywhere, Fox Sports, etc.

    With the release of "The Mandalorian" on the horizon, i really wanted to get these problems fixed, and I had a gut-feeling that the 2016 LG tv was reaching it's limit as far as the 60Hz problem was concerned. Obviously LG can't fix that, and it seems app developers and device manufacturers dont care, they just point the finger at LG.

    So I went out and got a new TV ( yes, i absolutely hated to do it, turned my stomach for about 24 hours just thinking about it ). But as soon as the 2019 LG was hooked up, all these problems went away. Vudu and Netflix started working properly again ( on both CCU and Fire TV ). MA started working properly, even though their DV support is very limited.

    One key thing also occurred, the Fox Sports app on FTV started recognizing that I had a 4k TV and started showing the "4kHDR" icon for certain football games. ( completely not related to DV at all!!! ) For the first time, i was able to watch a football game in 4k!

    I hope this info helps....

      Not really. I'm not upgrading my tv because of this. I am however looking at getting a shield tv 2019, which can hopefully replace my ccu, fire tv 4k stick and cheapo S912 based kodi box (except for for youtube hdr apparantly :O )

          Thanks for posting this. My CCU is in the preview program, but I haven't had a chance to see if it's updated. Will check soon.

          If you do get a one of the new 2019 SHIELD TVs, let us know if it can be configured to work for 4K24 Dolby Vision displays like the LG 6 series.

            Checked and confirmed. VUDU once against 4K24 Dolby Vision from VUDU to my LG B6 using CCU preview firmware. I didn't watch long, but there weren't any immediate issues apparent.

            Thank you Jeff, and thank you VUDU, for responding to Google with this issue and helping get it fixed!

            I tried upgrading my B6 twice, once to a 7-series and again to an 8-series. The manufacturing tolerances on these units is such that both samples exhibited unacceptable non-linearities in picture quality that could not be corrected. They had to be returned. I will probably try again with a 9-series. I was lucky enough to get a near-flawless B6 sample, which is why I am trying to keep it in service as long as possible. Unfortunately, the Sony OLEDs don't have specific software features that I need for work purposes.

              That's interesting. i'm not in the preview program, hopefully it won't take too long for them to push it out to everyone. This may have fixed the CCU problem, but I was still having some issues with the Fire TV stick / B6 as well. Not sure Amazon will ever fix it.

                Fire TV Stick 4K does not play nicely with LG 6 series.
