You may want to try the WD TV Live: http://www.wdc.com/en/products/products.aspx?id=330
I've been using one of these for almost two years now. The latest firmware is a bit buggy, but more than likely if you purchase one it will not have the very latest firmware on it. And if it does, the WD Community forum has specific instructions for rolling back the firmware on these devices.
I'm gonna try to stream via Plex and will revert...

A setting of 90 seems really low for the 65" even given that there are variations between sets.
I have a question. I own a 50 inch LA6200 and have connected it to a denon X2000 receiver. The setting goes like this.
- Receiver ARC HDMI connected to TV HDMI 1 ARC
- DVR connected to HDMI input of receiver.
- TV audio output has been set to HDMI/optical option (i.e. no TV speaker option)
The problem is this. When I see cable TV, the output is going fine in dolby to the receiver and I hear sound. But when I go to the smart TV option either the receiver continues to have the sound of the Cable TV or if I switch off the cable DVR the sound is blank. I have tried Netflix and Amazon TV but no sound output to the receiver.
Is there any setting I am missing?
On my set, I had to really shove the optical cable into place in the TV to get it to work. I actually thought the output might be broken, and was trying a different cable when I discovered that it seemed a bit loose. I had to push the cable really hard, and it finally gave a fairly loud "pop" and set into place.
Before I get started, yes I know I can use copper but thats not the point. I would like to work this out because I think this is just COOL and it should work. Not working = not right
when my AT&T U-Verse router was set to wireless B/G/N, everything was just negotiating to use G even though all devices could support N. This is not the way it should work, but whatever. In the old days when Wireless G came out, if there was even ONE wireless B device connected, the router pulled all devices down to wireless B speeds. So I verified all devices INDEED support 'Wireless N' (802.11n) based on documentation. At each wireless device I deleted the connection to the wireless router - not just "disconnected". I then did a reset of the router, checked to see if indeed all devices were disconnected after it came back up, and reconnected them. Yes, even the mobile devices. The same thing occurred - it was still connecting at wireless G. It is like Wireless N did not even exist! (How I know this is beyond the scope of this post - but I have verified)
I then set the router to wireless N ONLY, repeat the above process with all devices. Now all devices flying at Wireless N speeds. Bada$$! This is the current state of my wireless network today.
I was then thinking, wow, I want to try wireless streaming. I know my router pretty well, it has QOS, even supports 40mhz (wider pipe). Let me connect the 55LM6200 via wireless-N. I removed network cable from the 55LM6200, tried to connect wirelessly, and Nope - it will NOT connect no matter what I do - including revert to factory defaults. (I once had it connected using wireless before setting wireless N only on the router. I switched to copper because I was getting terrible throughput. But I want it on wireless N. I paid for this, right?!)
Called LG support which was worthless and the call "DISCONNECTS" accidently a few times when I ask for escalation LOL. They gave me some BS that the panel wont support WPA2-PSK which is clearly does in the expert settings. They also said that the device does not have a mac address so a static IP must be set. OK WHAT? Well I always use static IPs on AV equipment, which I key in on that equipment and never use DHCP reservations, but no MAC address? Uh, wow. So just to rule out LG support stating I am using "unsupported encryption", I TURN OFF all encryption/security for the entire router and try again. Again, the LG will NOT connect with wireless N only without encryption. So let me restate - NO ENCRYPTION WIRELESS N = PANEL WONT CONNECT
And for everyone who will ask me the process I am using:
Revert unit to defaults using Option | Initial Setting and then go through startup choices
Start Connection (network cable unplugged)
I choose my network
Enter key (yes I am sure I know it)
Then I get a connecting to network animated ping circle for about 20 seconds and it returns to the pick connection page which never populates with any of the surrounding wireless networks. Then gives an error message saying check the cable or AP.
SET EXPERT yields the same result. Manually keying all variables gives the same result.
I have reverted to initial settings a few times.
I am savvy on wireless and IP routing.
And I am so effn sick of LG support. How can a device support 802.11n and not support the valid encryption level associated with the standard?!?! I am very polite, but I couter their comments at every turn.
So, your homework is to try this at home and let me know what you find out. I actually now have an extended warranty claim on the TV and the service is coming out soon. If they cant fix it - you know I am going to ask for a new TV. lol

Sorry that I'm late to the party but we received a 42"LM6200 and for the life of me;
1) I can't turn on the "Real Cinema" within "Picture Option" per aboves settings (as its always greyed out).
2) it always states 60Hz when selecting "Program Information" and this is updated to 06.05.03 how/where can I get it to a true 120Hz.
I've looked and looked but alas could not find specific info.
Had a 42LG70 (amazing TV) and could've sworn it did both of the above.
Thanks as always guys;
