Does this TV support hdr and if which humidity connection has hdr

Asked by: Hjbkyb94
The LG 4K UHD Smart LED TV - 55" Class (54.6" Diag), Model # 55UB8500 is a 2014 model which was released well before the advent of HDR so it does not support HDR although all the 2016 Super UHD lineup of LG TVs will support both HDR10 and Dolby Vision. It is not clear what you mean by "which humidity connection has HDR" If you meant which HDMI connection has HDR, HDR is not dependent on the connection. HDR makes images with widely varying lights and darks look better on your screen. You'll need a TV that supports HDR and your source also needs to be HDR...^IFV

Asked by: Carlos B
We regret the inconvenience you have experienced with this television. To what devices is this TV connected? The description given suggests that a bad signal is being received from one of the external components. The problem is likely not with the screen, else the green VOLUME and CHANNEL bars would not display properly either. Please contact our Customer Interactive Center at 800-243-0000 for assistance.

I just bought the lg smart 65 4K uf8500 and I bought the hdmi cable the 4 k but the picture is coming not good still 1080p I need it to be at least 2016 p

Asked by: Ramiabu
We appreciate your interest in this television. The INFO BAR on the screen is designed to provide information relating to the incoming signal or broadcast. This information will have no bearing on the image displayed on the screen itself. As such, if your cable box only outputs a 1080p signal, then that is what will show in this INFO BAR. Regardless, the TV is automatically upconverting the signal to the full 4K resolution, in order to fill the screen. This is all normal operation. If there are additional questions about this matter,please contact our Customer Interactive Center at 800-243-0000.
