THE Official LG "55LHX" Owners Thread - Page 88

post #2611 of 3040
So here's what's going on with my "black beauty." I have DSE............do not care. It's like what I had on my Lg plasma 50PS80, so I can really look past it because it's nothing I haven't seen before. Trumotion is not turning on by itself. It is off. Played with settings last night(nothing set in stone) and put in my brand new Halloween II disc. The opening credits are stunning. I've never in my life seen anything come out of complete darkness before. It's everything i've been looking for in a television. It's absolutely crazy to see a pumpkin float in midair. There is blooming, but this is an LED and it's not bad at all. There is no out of focus moments like I had on my LV9500. There were some motion moments/hiccups in the first hours of this things life, but it seems like the tv has caught up to itself. I don't know if that comes across strange. It's just that the tv flows now with no artifacting, like when I first fired it up. I appreciate everyone's help and input. This has been a pretty cool experience so far. Still have a lot to tinker with.

Oh and by the way, absolutely nooooooo flashlighting or clouding. This thing is black black black. Feb 2010 build and matte screen(not semi or glossy).

Mine is also a February 2010 set and I absolutely love it. I did the update on my set as soon as I fired it up so I wouldn't have to worry about Trumotion coming on.

I haven't done the update yet, but I will just in case. I tell you what, you sure have to dust this sucker. It attracts everything.

On my tv, after I put the usb in and powered it up, it automatically detected it and asked if I wanted to do the update. I know in the instructions it says you have to hit all these numbers and stuff, but on mine I didn't have to do that, I'm guessing yours would be the same. Also, be sure to try out the different settings on here, I'm sure one of them will be good for your set.
post #2615 of 3040
Oh, I plan on trying all the settings. Thanks...................this is so much fun. This thing kills my LV9500 I sent back.
post #2616 of 3040
Yeah this tv really is a hidden gem isn't it?
post #2617 of 3040
I guess its the luck of the draw. My brother looked at a used LHX on Craigslist just to see what it looked like and stated that the DSE was really bad with white and blue back grounds.

He decided not to take a chance in ordering one and instead chose the Sony XBR929 for just a couple hundred dollars more.
post #2618 of 3040
Ive had mine for over a year now. I see there is an update for the trumotion thing now so I desperatly need to do that. Have not tweeked the settings yet either so I will come back to research that soon. Just dreading reading the 88 pages here. I remeber when it was just 13 when I got mine but havent been able to keep up with it. lJust came on here cause I bougght a Vizio 552 with the deal they are having so I want see what people are saying about that.
post #2619 of 3040
I remember someone saying before about how someone told them the LHX isn't displaying the full image. Here's the overscan test on my LHX.

What means bad and what means good, i have never used that before.

Overscan is what older tvs have, basically it means you're not seeing 100% of the picture if your tv is overscanning. The numbers on the pattern show you the percentage that your tv is overscanning. Obviously, since I can see the entire image, my tv isn't overscanning at all. All the new tvs now have the option to display the whole image, the feature just has a different name per company, like Just Scan, Dot by Dot, etc. Someone was claiming that the LHX bezel was blocking some of the image, which is totally not true.

Yeah, i'm the one that said it wasn't true. I know what overscan is, I just didn't know what the reading was actually stating. I've never used that tool before, infact I don't own any tools. I just go by my eye. My wife would freek, if I start getting that crazy. I'm talking the meter and gadgets everyone uses.

I don't like this tv anymore because now when I go to someone's house their tvs look like crap.

I know what you mean. Despite some minor flaws this TV has, it still kicks butt. I am so used to the LHX now and it drives me nuts watching movies on my Samsung LN55B650 and LN46C650. Once you are used to the deep black, you can't go back.

I got a LN46C750, I still love it. It's my bedroom tv. The black levels are outstanding, but when the lights go off, it glows. It's def. not in LHX territory, but I do think the PQ is very worthy.

Is DSE when the camera pans and the screen looks kind of cloudy or um... dirty? LOL I see it sometimes, no big deal.

That is it. Whenever my wife and I watch House Hunters on HGTV, it's real easy to see.

Have now found the Chroma5 and my 55LHX do NOT get along! After coming up with some new techniques for calibrating with the Chromapure, have now applied these now to Calman and the i1Pro calibrations. This is by far, the Best results I've gotten on this set. Have included my old Factory Values to show the amount of change in the White Balance, and how far off the Factory settings were. (Please note: my set, my room and conditions - for Reference purposes only.)

Please note: after changing your settings, mine or yours, allow set to warm up to these new settings for a half to full hour. Make final judgement after the set has been off overnight, then again, let warm up for the half to full hour.

I'll try them out later. For some reason every setting I've tried that anyone has posted has looked really green on my set. From the looks of it you have alot more red in there, I'll try and see.

Yes, mostly this is seen during a hockey game, or golf, where it's either white and or light blue background, and panning, some set's exhibit more, some very little....

I've used your settings as well as Konnica's, and since my white balance values were never altered, the image looks fantastic with either settings.

Found the Chroma5s, Standard OEM and Spectracal Enhanced, calibrated leaving a Green Tinge using Calman. i1Pro, although very cantankerous, seems to agree with my 55LHX better, and now I end up with the Warmer Whites using the Calman. (Could not use my Spectracal Enhanced i1Pro, nor Chroma5 with ChromaPure) ChromaPure and my Standard OEM Chroma5 did a pretty good calibration, but I was still left with the Green Tinge.
Konica says he read somewhere, that the LEDs (3360 of them) are not the standard type of LEDs found on other sets, hence the problems trying to get meters and software to jibe with the set. (Or maybe there's just too many LEDs?)

What does the luminance level do if I raise it to say, 300? My values(without sevice menu settings) are almost identical to p5brownes, but i've been changing my backlight, which was at 55 to 70. It just seemed like my image was too dark and I wasn't getting enough shadow detail. And I get a **** load of pop.

I assume the settings are for a Bright Daytime Room? Because at night, I think you might compete with the Las Vegas Strip!

I like a bright screen, my room is actually pitch black.
post #2637 of 3040
Mine are for a completely dark room. I love color. I especially love it when it comes out of complete darkness. I watch a lot of horror and sci fi movies if that helps.

I have changed them now to get the whites to be a bit better.

Question for people with the iscan duo's and other receivers. Does the tv respond in the same way as the receiver LHX comes with or do you lose your menu options?
