Thank's for the info.

I gave up cablevision 6 months ago. Any idea if this will be offered on Roku also ?

Maybe it will be on the LW thru the Netflix app ?

Just received this notice about Netflix from Cablevision:

Yeah, I just posted about that. It is not on the LWs yet, but it is on some other LG TVs as well as on the PS3. Other devices coming soon, so hopefully it will be on ours. Be nice to see it on the xbox too, but I don't have the xbox hooked up to a 3D TV.

Anyone with this tv who is familiar with the service menu care to give the default white balance settings for the warm color temp. Mine are way to blue and need the defaults. Thanks

Do you have a calibration Blu-Ray, like Disney's WOW?
post #8076 of 8217
Yes. I have a colorimeter and software.This is why I am in need of the original default WB settings on the 5600. Mine were changed in the service menu and now my meter puts the warm setting at 9000K and no amount of user adjustment will bring it down far enough in the user controls alone. I need to put back in the original WB settings and start my calibration from that point.

I can't find the default settings online, but perhaps start at the following link. I noticed that they seem to pull the blue down significantly at higher values:

I made a posted to request for help last year in regard to the white balance setting within EZ ADJ MENU.

I was trying to update the white balance setting; however, I was mistaken using the reset option instead and I did not have a chance to write down the old setting. Is it possible someone can post the white balance default setting within the white balance option from the EZ ADJ MENU?

I am very appreciated if someone can post the setting or take a quick picture of the setting.

Has anyone else noticed that the backlighting (with local dimming on) is getitng worse witht he age\hours on the tv?

Mine has definitely gotten worse over the last few months (mainly noticeable on darker screnes, but still). I wonder if it has to do with hours on the set or if its software related and it came about with a firmware upgrade.

Thoughts?

Bleed is a physical phenomenon. It could well be that things have settled over time. I've heard of bleed coming and going depending on how often the TV was moved, or if it was mounted and then unmounted, and also of course the tightening/untightening of the backing screws thing. Whatever it is, I'm betting (<---Note: that means "guessing") it's related to a very low tolerance that either is not possible to maintain during manufacture, or perhaps it's fine at the factory and messed up during shipping.

In fact, in the case of the 60LM7200, there has been luck with pressing on the corners until a slight "pop"ing can be felt to remove the bleed. It has a different bezel, perhaps that's why. In any case, bleed is so prevalent with LG's that it seems nearly a "feature".

Has anyone calibrated the individual colors

What do you mean the individual colors? Do you mean the Primary and secondary colors per the REC709 \ messing with the CMS? You really don't want to mess with the CMS on your TV without a colorimeter\spectroradiometer.

I bought the 47LW5600 when it first came out. I just recently was given a Bose Wave radio as a gift and wanted to use it as external speakers thru the headphone jack on the rear panel. However, it does not work. I only get a hum out of the BOSE. The headphone jack does work with normal headphones. The BOSE works fine if I use Audio OUT from the Directv Box. The Bose works if I connect my iphone for music. All cables and adapters have tested fine.

Why doesn't the BOSE and 47LW5600 get along? Is this some weird incompatibility? Any ideas?
post #8084 of 8217
did you turn the volume up on the TV after you plugged in the 3.5mm jack into the tv?

It's nothing to do with the volume controls. The Bose is just getting an incompatible input from the TV and just hums. I just don't understand the incompatibility.
post #8086 of 8217
I hooked up my TV to a pair of Sony SA-VA15 speakers, had the same issue, then I realized the TV volume was at 0, just thought this might the same situation.
post #8087 of 8217
The TV may be using impedance to check for the presence of headphones; spec calls for 16ohms. Aux input on the Bose is probably 47k - it may not register.
post #8088 of 8217
That sounds about right. Is there any way around it? Adapter?
post #8089 of 8217
Maybe try connecting a 3.5mm extension cable between the TV and your Bose.
post #8090 of 8217
I currently have the lg headphone to composite adapter connected to a 3ft composite to composite (RCA) cable to the Bose. That's where I get the hum.

Are you suggesting longer?
post #8091 of 8217
Sorry, I was not suggesting a longer cable. I just now scanned thru an online owner's manual for a Bose radio and it says you may need a special adapter when connecting to a TV with a headphone jack, but it doesn't give any further description of the adapter.
post #8092 of 8217
The quick & dirty workaround is to plug in a twofer, and either hang a cheap set of headphones off of the second jack or rig a dummy load.

Oops, just a moment... what exactly do you have plugged in to the headphone jack of the LG? The supplied 3.5mm composite adapter (w/yellow:white:red RCA plugs) isn't electrically compatible.

Gotcha is that the composite (yellow) & white tips should carry the L/R audio, but the ground connection may be screwed - depending on the jack construction. If LG used a wiper (rather than a conductive barrel), the ground could connect to red tip, ground (all three), or nothing (if parked on the insulating divider).

I just got it working. I ditched the LG headphone RCA adapter (red, yellow, white) and just replaced it with a standard headphone to RCA (red,white) adapter. So now I have a 3ft 3.5mm extension cable plugged into the headphone jack of the TV then into the 3.5mm to RCA adapter then to the BOSE.

However, to make this work the BOSE has to be at max volume (99) and the TV volume around 40 to get reasonable sound. Normally, using the TV sound I have it set at 10. The other annoyance is if the BOSE gets turned off and back on the sound volume resets to 70 not 99. I would have to keep the BOSE on all the time to avoid this. I'm not willing to do any fancy macros on the remote control.
post #8094 of 8217
Hmm. Hadn't thought about it, but with the TV rated 15mW into 16ohms, the output at 'full' volume would only be about half of what your line level input expects. A better option might be jack an optical to analog converter into the TV - they're cheap (under $20) & should do the job.

A friend gave me a USB drive with a movie on it that I started to watch on my LW5600. The movie also had a subtitle file on it. Since the subtitle (srt) file was in English, I wanted to turn it off. But I could not see how or where to turn off subtitles on the remote or in the setup. Anyone know how to turn off subtitles on an LG LW5600? I ended up putting the USB in my computer and renamed the srt file. But I would rather know how to set the TV to do it.
post #8096 of 8217
I just checked my TV menu and found a firmware update and updated. It is version 5.00.12 but I cannot find any info on it. The LG website still has 5.00.10 listed, and I do not find the .12 update there. Anyone know anything about it, release notes or something?
post #8097 of 8217
Not sure yet, but I wouldn't doubt its an update to give us more ads to our home screen... mad.gif

I am having a frustrating problem. I have to deactivate Netflix and sign back in 1-3 times a week otherwise I get the title is unavailable at this time error. Has anyone encountered this issue this often. It is making me want to get a media streamer just so I don't have to deal with the "smart" features on this TV.

I've never had to deactivate it before, and I've had the occasional error.For me just turning the TV off and on again after a minute works. Try that and if it doesnt work try a Reset on the whole tv, not just deactivating netflix and let us know what happens.

Also, make sure you have the latest firmware.
post #8100 of 8217
The srt file is not needed to play the movie. Either delete them or just don't copy them to the USB drive or your DNLA network.
