    You color intensity is higher in the non 4k than the 4k . Try giving it just a bit more color in the 4k settings screen.

    I wouldn't call it dim, just different production. I also had to bump the color a little on golf, but it's not bad.

    World Cup 4K looks to dark compare with regular HD. Looks much better on regular HD.

    To each their own. On my projector in a blacked out room, the picture is plenty bright, even when the dog pushed the door open.

    Again, the 4K and HD are different productions. I prefer the truer color of the HLG feed.

    I don't know for sure but based on actually playing the course the US Open is being held at and knowing how they like to prep the courses, I'll bet the 4K version with "less color intensity" is the more accurate of the two.

    Yeah, there's a certain (possibly large) segment of the viewing populace who thinks golf courses should be emerald green, but a true aficionado of the game knows that's got nothing to do with how a classic course should be presented at its best.

    Yeh I saw some other wide pan shots of the course and they more closely match the 4K picture above

    I was not at all impressed with the 4k broadcast of the US Open.
    The highlights were all blown out.
    If you looked a Fowler's white hat or the white gloves of Mickelson they appeared as if they were glowing.
    On the other hand, the Network Simulcast channel looked outstanding.
    I viewed the tournament on an LG b6 and a Sony 900e.

    @I WANT MORE - has your TV been professionally calibrated? My LG B6 has, and I had none of the issues you note.

    Negative, Can't get my favorite calibrator out here to do it.
