The Official LG PX950 3DTV Owner's Discussion Thread - Page 39

post #1141 of 2082
My son had me download the Tumble demo. OMG! If you have a PS3 move and this LG 3D TV, try it with this TV. It is the most incredible 3D experience out there. The tutorial is amazing. It's just a stacking block game, but in 3D .......wow. I guess another $14.00 for the game.

Enjoy!

Anyone know how to access the the options for adjusting the picture aspect (that's grayed out) through usb video playback? Is there a code like the 8741 THX code?

What's up with the USB break in sticks? Some have HD pictures on them as well? Sorry, but I didn't know these existed. How do I get one and does anyone have one to recommend? Thanks guys.

I bought my LG 50PX950 from Buy.com.
They will not let UPS handle their stuff.
UPS has the worse record for damaging merchandise out of all the main shipping company's.
Instead Buy.com uses AIT Worldwide Logistics.
They set up a time and date for the delivery, and were right on time.
The TV was delivered by two big guys, and they stayed to make sure it was OK, even tough there was not one dent on the box
They had a customer satisfaction check list that covered every aspect of the delivery.
I am 100% satisfied with AIT, and would recommend them in a heart beat !!

Well, I have had my 50PX950 for about 2 months now and have it paired with the LG BX580. This week I am over 200 hours on the set and have set my settings to match the calibration settings from CNET using the 20 Point.

Anyway, my daughter and I watched the "Cats & Dogs: Revenge of Kitty Galore" last night. For the most part I was very impressed with the 3D quality and sharpness of the picture. I did not some ghosting in sections, especially the opening scene where you could see 2 images of fence, trees, etc. The picture swap button was not working or allowed during move play back, so couldn't play with that. And there were some areas where out of frame blurriness (something in foreground or background that was meant to be blurry) was VERY blurring. Not sure if this is a function of any 3D or not as I have only seen one other new style 3D movie (I want to get in and see Tron in 3D).

Anyway, my daughter and I both enjoyed it. My daughter would lift the glasses now and then just to look at the picture, but she is 5 and was pretty in to it.

So, quite happy with my purchase at this point! And the CNET calibration settings made a wonderful difference!

This is the first 3D media I have watched on the set. I have tried regular TV in 3D, but just not worth it.

I really don't use my BD players for anything other than DVD, BD, of music and picture streaming from my home computer. I have had 0 issues accessing files on my home computer, including I guess a couple of .wmv movies I made myself and they all work fine. So do the Netcast options (love my Pandora and Netflix on the BD and TV have worked fine wirelessly). But have never tried a Divx or other format on it.

Has anyone tried the new LG- AG-S110 glasses? They are now $92 at Electronics expo and Amazon. Has anyone tried the Xpand glasses as well? One of them will be my next purchase.

My first ISF calibration is coming in a week, cant wait! Set is over 100 hrs so I should be all set for it.

I am waiting for these to go on sale
though they are going to really hurt
the wallet.

I'm looking forward to it too, especially since I can adjust them with my phone. Price will probably be an issue though.

I think the issue with this film is the content. It is not related to the TV. They did a mediocre job on the 3D for this. I enjoyed it just the same with my little girl too. One of her favorites!

I kind of wondered if it was something like this. I need to pick up Avatar 3D and check that out as I have heard it is pretty good!

Best 3D title out there. It looks beautiful on the LG.

Good luck getting a copy, though. You have to buy
a Panasonic TV or Blu-ray player (certain model #)

I got mine only because I review 3D titles and there
was a lot of red tape to go through just to obtain one
for that purpose.

Just picked up the 60" version. For those of you that used break in slides, what did you set your contrast and brightness to? And in what mode did you run the slides?

TIA

Since Panasonic and the movie studios decided to limit the retail channel of Avatar 3D, I had to get it from shadier means, and I feel no remorse. They'll never learn.

I still can't play it though, because ATI's drivers can't pass through a 3D signal through an AVR. It only works through the TV, but I want my 7.1 lossless audio too.

They would be a nice option, but considering there is no company info on who makes the glasses, no spec sheet, and no other retailers selling it, I am highly skeptical. Still, I may give them a try. I'm not 100% satisfied with LG's glasses, and if there are better ones out there for a good price, I'd want them.

No one has run break-in slides on here? I find that hard to believe.

You don't need any set mode or brightness, just find a slides dvd or picture slideshow and run it. I've used THX modes and CNET settings and never lowered brightness once for them. TV works fine and has never gotten any IR yet, even after extended CoD sessions.

Has anyone had issues with glare on the LG 3d glasses? I find that I have a lot of glare from the glasses when trying to watch a 3d movie.

are you wearing eyeglasses underneath the 3D glasses? my gf's glasses are framless and she was getting glare when wearing them beneath the LG 3D glasses, however, i wear glasses as well and wasn't bothered. When i wear my contacts i don't get any glare either. I did this in both a pitch black room and the same room but with lights on and found it fine.

Theyre quite popular to the Samsung / Mitsubishi owners here:

I actually wear contacts and have bad glare with or without lights on.

FYI, children under 6 should not use 3D, their eyes are still developing. Source: multiple reports about the new 3DS and other scientific readings...

It is more than obvious to me that you have ties to this company, but it does look like a promising product. I will probably order a pair and review them for everyone here. Thanks!

Ok. Because I have seen other places on here where people talk about putting the contrast and brightness up high and some say put it low, during slide break-in.

It's an inexact science. You technically don't need to use slides at all, normal TV watching would probably do just fine. I don't believe brightness matters. It just seems like a good idea based on Plasma technology to run the slides to avoid future problems. Same as professional calibration, not needed but definitely helpful.

100 hours seems like a long time, and I am not huge on the idea of leaving it on all night while I sleep. I will probably do the slides for a bit, but am not going to deprive myself of 20 days of viewing to hit that 100 hour mark. Thanks for the info.

Whoa, no I didn't suggest that. Don't run it all at once, run it while you eat dinner or when you aren't using the tv.... but don't continuously run the slides for 100hrs straight. Watch tv as normal and run them whenever you can.

Yeah, I just saw some people saying that ran it at night. I would never do that. At most I would do 5 hours a day, hence me saying 20 days to break in. As long as I can do some watching/vg playing during the time, I am fine with it.
