Is this still working for you or do you have to keep repeating it?

Thanks

Duh, I just deauthorized netflix and logged backed in and that worked fine.

Is anyone else having problems with input lag on this tv and PS3 games that output to 720p? Like Battlefield 3 and Dirt 3. I tried 2 diff HDMI cables, could it be that? It looks like high speed has been out for quite a few years so I don't know how it's possible that I couldn't have that.

I just tested my HTPC outputting 720p and using a keyboard I don't detect any lag.

Here are some lag suggestions mentioned in the past in case you missed any:

* make sure you have the latest firmware
* make sure you have your HDMI input labeled "PC"
* try HDMI3 (no idea why)
* reboot the PS3 (someone claimed rebooting the device cleared the lag)
* use "Game" picture mode
* perform a "hard" reset if all else fails (someone reported it fixed their issues and suspected that updating the firmware may have corrupted a setting)

Good luck on figuring this out.

Thanks, unfortunately I tried all of those suggestions.

I have a 55LW5300, and am enjoying the set so far for the most part. I do have a question about the input labeling. Is there a way to enter a user-created name for the various input labels. I only see a small list of possible choices to name each input.

We have multiple game consoles and multiple DVRs/Set-top boxes connected, so having generic labels of "game console" or "set-top box" doesn't help the wife and kids know which input to select for what they need. The DLP tv we bought in 2005 and the Sharp LED we bought a few years back each allowed us to enter custom input names, so I'm surprised if this tv does not have that ability. That would seem a no-brainer of a standard feature for a >$1000 set in this day and age. Am I just missing how to do it, or does this tv really not have that option?

If there are any LG programmers reading this forum, please Please PLEASE add this feature via a firmware update. It would make the tv much more user friendly.

Thanks.

I get a lot of stutter/judder when there are scenes of the camera panning across a room/building/scenery etc.
Is it inherent of all LCDs?
Do HDMI cables make a difference?
Does Comcast box / Dish box make a difference?

I really like this TV except for this problem.

PS: I see it less when playing blu-rays thru my HTPC with HDMI 1.4 cable, but it is still there.

Is there any difference in response time depending on the output resolution? Also, i've searched and have not come up on a step by step on how to do the hard reset. If someone could reply with it, that'd be great!

I would imagine if the TV has to scale the input to it's native resolution then it may add some extra delay. I have no idea how much or if it would be noticeable.

If I remember correctly you can perform a hard reset by unplugging the power, press the power button for 30 seconds and then plug the power back in. I'm not sure how much risk is involved with doing this operation.

You are right it is quite lame... It was disappointment for me too. You can use the Youtube app on plex server through Medialink ... It works very well ..

Hi everyone, Happy Holidays !

I am trying to find a way to watch what I have on the computer monitor on the TV. If I am watching the latest revue of a antique vehicle from Jay Leno's Big Dog Garage, how do I watch this on the TV.

I have the 55/6500, Pioneer VSX 1021 A/V receiver. Everything is connected with HDMI 1.4 cables. PC is HP p6720f, wireless to router. TV is wireless to router. The Pioneer receiver is connected with an Ethernet cable to the router.

Anyone have any ideas as to what I need to accomplish this ?

I have my DirectTV receiver connected to my LG 47LW5600 with an HDMI cable, and the DirectTV receiver's analog audio output connected to my old Yamaha stereo receiver and sound system. The lag between the TV speakers and my sound system is severe enough that I have to mute the TV if I want to use my sound system. Is this normal? Any way to resolve this issue other than buying a new audio receiver or sound bar with an optical audio input from the TV?
post #6344 of 8217
Has anyone been to this site ? I just found it and there is a lot of useful info. to be had there.

The analog and digital audio will never be exactly in sync, too many differences in how it gets buffered along the way. I think its time for a new receiver, the best possible solution being one that does HDMI switching and just run through that, it just pulls the audio off the HDMI and sends the video onto the TV. You can get a nice Onkyo for $299 at Fry's if you have one near and it passes the 3D through

Thanks for the reply. That's what I suspected. This changeover to a new TV is going to be a lot more costly than I originally anticipated. I already had to buy a new 3D compatible Blue Ray DVD player, and now it looks like I'll have to scrap my old sound system with my venerable old Yamaha receiver and Cambridge Soundworks speaker system. Oh well. I knew I was in trouble when I saw that the LG only had an optical audio output, but I was hoping the satellite receiver hookup would solve that problem. Guess not.

I'll check out that Onkyo and try to figure out where to go from here.

Been reading this thread all week in anticipation of my 5600. Here's a question I haven't seen asked (because it may very well be a n00b question)... actually I have 2 somewhat related questions. How good are the speakers on this set? I had a 42LV4400 (very cheap TV) and the sound was junk.

Also, is this TV capable of outputing 5.1 audio? I ask because I see that it has an optical audio port, and I'd like to hookup my PC speakers (Logitech Z5500). I have an HD Dish Network receiver and a PS3. Assuming the TV supports 5.1 audio, I would just need hook my optical cable between my TV and speakers and I'd get 5.1 out of all those devices, correct? I'm still relatively new to this AV stuff

At my normal viewing distance of about 11' from my 55" LG (LW5600), the scan lines (or resolution issues) in 3D that some complain about simply disappear and the image looks sharp as a tack with no flicker, no headaches, no ghosting. Just a super bright image and no hassles with battery powered glasses. I am 100% sold now on passive 3D and in my case they even threw in 9 pairs of glasses and I also bought a set of flip up LG clip-on's for $25 that work perfectly with my normal eyeglasses. (AG-F220 is the LG part number for the flip up clip-on's. If you normally wear glasses, you will LOVE these)

I just watched the Avatar 3D blu-ray and was blown away by the image. It was easily better than the 3D version I saw in the theatre. Not as big mind you but it didn't change the experience and the screen at home was brighter and sharper than in the theatre which still resulted in the same immersive experience that I got in the theatre. VERY happy with this TV so far and I've barely started tweaking settings yet. WAF has been very high as well with this TV so that pretty much sums it up! (Wife Acceptance Factor) Cheers!

I would agree that passive is the way to go, and you don't get the full effect until you can set it up properly. I picked up the 47LW5700 at Costco (the Costco/Sams version of the 5600 model) and I must say I'me VERY happy with it for both 2D and 3D. Judder can be an issue with some content, but I think that's more about the larger screen size (my previous set was only 32"!). The more I watch the less it seems to be an issue, so my brain must be adapting to it.

The glasses that come with it are junk. I got the the Vizio set of 4 passive glasses for $50 at Costco and they work perfectly with this set and are MUCH more comfortable, higher quality glasses. They include microfiber cases for each pair of glasses too. That just another reason to prefer passive glasses - they are actually standard stuff!

Dolby Digital works fine, but DTS gets blocked . LG needs to fix this in a firmware update.

I don't think they will for the 2011 models. There are licensing issues even for passthrough.

Would different glasses result in better picture? They seem like all would be the same.

You can turn on/enable DTS pass thru in the service menu.

But then where would it pass through? Would the sound be downmixed to something else? I guess I am a bit confused as to what would be processing the audio. Wouldn't DTS audio come from a source such as a disk to an a/v receiver which would handle the sound? There is no hdmi out for audio from the TV! Sorry if this is a silly question but the order of the connections has me confused.

I have DirecTV and early on noticed some studder and judder during panning scenes, including bluray. I changed the settings on the 24/60 frames per second, I can't remember whether I changed it to 24 or 60 and I'm not where I can check right now. I changed the setting on both the bluray player and the TV and everything works fine now.

I would fiddle with those settings and see if it helps.

So how do I turn off the option that tells me another video source is available when I turn on another video device? I do not want this popup when I turn on my blu-ray player cause I use it for audio as well

HDMI #1 on the TV is ARC (Audio Return channel) (HDMI 1.4) compatible. Your receiver needs to be ARC compatible too. So from your Cab/Sat box to the TV, (or whatever else you have connected directly to the TV), the sound is passed to the receiver from the TV via HDMI #1. But unless the TV is hacked for 5.1 passthrough, it will be just stereo sound.

Or, correct, you could use the optical digital port from the Tv to the reciever.

Thank you for this explanation. Makes sense and it's a neat way of doing it.

Edit: Does this mean that if one turns on DTS passthrough in the 5600 DTS audio will be downmixed and sent out the stereo headphone port?
post #6359 of 8217
The TV cannot decode DTS and therefore cannot down mix it.

If you run all sources via hdmi to the tv and arc to a receiver, the tv will allow DTS thru optical aduio out if enabled in the service menu. It is not enabled by default (due to licensing?). HDMI to an AVR first is the way to go.
