Is there a place to get the disc locally? Amazon doesn't seem to ship the item here.
You can get this from Amazon US, Spears & Munsil HD Benchmark and Calibration Disc 2nd Edition. They also have the UHD 4K version but not shipping to SGP yet.

Yup, I searched Amazon and it is not shipping to SG. Is there any difference between the 2nd Edition and 4K version? Both calibrate similarly?

Hi, I'm not sure which seller you chose in Amazon, but the one I'm looking at is from Scenic Labs and they ship to SGP.
The difference between 4K and the bluray is the inclusion of HDR patterns and a few others in the UHD 4K version.

Can check with other owners here when you touch the frame or back panel of the TV, do you feel electricity is leaking?

hi, yes it does...

my experience is that whenever i reach to the back to meddle with the cables i will avoid touching the surface as there seems to be some Current/static flowing thru.. not a good feeling.

I think internally the grounding isn't so good. You could try to get a cable and touch another metal surface elswhere.. or use a conditioner with a grounding cable..

Anyways I seldom go back there too. But BEWARE. Never hot unplug a HDMI cable especially if your back panel is live...

OMG, I did it once (HDMI 1) after testing out the HDMI cable. What will happen?

By the way, not sure why Netflix isn't showing a lot of 4K content available for the TV.
