(added LG OLED TV Update D/L pages to earlier post below about OTA update.)
The above 05.30.02 update for LG C6/E6 OLED TV models D/L posted Jul 14th, but no new G6 update US D/L yet. (Is on the KR site.) Earlier reports (from OTA update) said 05.30.0x enables HLG HDR support based on tests with a sample HLG HDR video. (No HLG in US yet.) And a G6 owner thought the update improved HDMI handshake reliability. *But* HDR gamers regretted installing the update, saying it made HDR Game mode much darker/dimmer. (Tone map change to prevent clipping?) LG responded with a support article suggesting setting Dynamic Contrast to High.
Update: On 7/15, reports v05.30.03 out for EU/DE C/E/G6 models. Early UK feedback said it didn't fix a new 1080/50i stutter issue with previous 05.30.0x update, & still had 'dimmer' HDR Game Mode, which some think is a changed HDR Tone Map to improve bright highlight details.
(FYI: Unzipping the US site D/L does not auto create the required "LG_DTV" folder. Make a folder named LG_DTV and put the unzipped file inside, then copy to a FAT format USB flash drive.)
