Well we can rule that out then.
I have a 55" LG G2 TV, which I use for watching movies and also as a PC monitor.
The problem with the yellow/orange/lime colored objects is very obvious and highly disturbing in Windows 11.
For a video content it's negligible, but any static element makes it clearly visible, and depending on TV/signal settings it might be somewhat weaker or stronger, but it never disappears or gets faint enough.
The main problem is that the manufacturer (LG) obviously didn't give a sh*t about solving this issue even if the TV switches to game mode and/or the source is clearly signed as a PC. WRGB is not a new technology, and using TV as a monitor is also functioning idea, at least in the last 3-4 years. Although it is clearly a hardware based problem, a highly satisfying software/firmware solution is undoubtedly possible. There is no excuse for not solving this problem as a manufacturer (LG) and as an OS developer company (Microsoft, Apple). Considering the fact that nowadays more and more monitors appear on the market with the very same panel technology and with the same issue, I really can't understand how is it still not solved?!
I attached some examples.
Even changing the width by adding or removing subpixels would be a good solution for the somewhat larger object starting from 5-10 pixels. Or at least an option in the settings would be great, so that everybody could decide if a red-green fringe or a somewhat distorted object is a better solution.I'm sure any attempt to reduce visible fringing can only be done by either adding or taking away one of the subpixels in certain situations.
This would have the effect of either shrinking or expanding the on-screen element in question, plus the smarts required to know when and when not to do this is likely beyond the capability of the firmware and/or image processing of the panel.
Not to control the pixel layout, but to make similar tricks like Clear Type depending on the chosen display type.lol you go tell nvidia, amd and microsoft that they have to be able to control the tv/monitor's pixel layout. let us know what they say....
Simple, instead of addressing only one pixel with RWBG subpixels, addressing two pixels using WBG+R subpixels. You can think about it like shifting the whole image 1/4 pixel or one subpixel to right.I have no idea how you think a firmware is able to change the physical pixel structure of a given display. What you're saying is the "fix" has to be done at the manufacturing level. Firmware can't make red OLEDs, (or blue or green) magically become a different color.
