I LOVE the OLED, but I'm not sure it's really worth the extra money for my needs. I don't really have any HDR content (and specifically, Dolby vision, since the Sammy does HDR), text is a little fuzzy in certain situations on the 55C6P, and I'm an upgrade fiend, so the "future proof" argument is kinda bogus either way. If I'm honest, I also think the 49" size is better for my use. The 55" is very 'doable', and I hardly notice the size anymore, but I admit I do miss the finer pixel pitch of the smaller panel.
Then again, I've heard the Samsungs have issues with bloom, and... those colors
on the OLED!
If you have NETFLIX try watching MarcoPolo you can watch it with HDR and Dolby Vision. I watched the first season really good.

I was previously using the digital audio disable solution from this thread which sort of solved the loss of signal issues (thank you gavros777 for finding that!). Did the C6 get a similar firmware update and if so can anyone confirm that they no longer need to use the disable digital audio solution? (Go to About this TV and check for updates).
I am still having weird issues where the display sometimes will make screw with the scaling, so icons appear super tiny and text is really fuzzy. This is seemingly random. Sometimes I turn on the TV and it is like that, sometimes it is not. This also happens sometimes when I exit games at which I am playing in 1080p, back to my 4K desktop.
My hunch is this is tied to the inability of the display to allow GPU scaling. New firmware did not change that. Has anyone been able to force GPU scaling on these sets? (Is that "safe?") What are the best scaling settings on the TV? I have it set to Original as just scan is grayed out, as another poster mentioned.
Remember when you guys install your NVIDIA driver make sure you go MANUAL INSTALL
and uncheck the box for HD AUDIO DRIVER and I also uncheck the 3D stuff as well. If you watch the 3D content it will be through a Player and the TV. So the only things I check is GRAPHICS/ DISPLAY DRIVER/ and Physx driver. Unless you plan on doing 3D gaming then leave it. But I highly recommend not including the HD AUDIO DRIVER it takes bandwidth. I just do these thing to trouble shoot one less thing to go wrong I have to worry about.
And I have the newer remotes incoming I will add pictures when I receive them. I also purchased the new Panasonic DMP-UB900 Ultra HD 4K player with HDR only. This should hold me over tell Oppo comes out with one this year I am hoping.
