Hopefully someone else will chime in and we can find the answer.

Here is the SuperHD page on Netflix:
https://signup.netflix.com/superhd

It points back to the 3D support article I linked above for a list of compatible devices so I assume the technology (hardware\software combinations) are tied in with eachother (SuperHD and 3D).

That still doesn't explain my weird kbps issue. 3000 kbps max with the LG set and 3850kbps with my Sony BDP-S590. (Both are wired through the same switch and router)

Quick question - had my 55LW6500 for two years now and it's still having a very minor issue that is an annoyance when it happens. On some blu-rays during a dark scene, the screen often jumps to a brighter picture, dims again, and can jump back and forth. Seems to happen when there is a change in the amount of light on-screen. Bit of extra light on-screen, and the entire screen seems to brighten up (even areas of a scene that should not be "brightened"). I hope this explains the issue enough. Minor annoyance, but would love a solution if this is a fix-able issue. Thanks!

Setting Dynamic Contrast to Low or Off should help with the brightness fluctuations during dark scenes.
post #8134 of 8217
I think 1HD-Addict is right, but you might want to also check to see if you have local dimming on. This should help a bit with the whole picture brightening up. Perhaps make sure your picture settings are as good as you can get them as well. Gamma, Brightness, Contrast, HDMI Black level etc

Thanks folks. I'll give that a try and see what happens.

Another quick one - no doubt already covered elsewhere so my apologies. When my 55LW6500 screen is completely black, there is some white "leakage" for lack of a better term around the edges of the screen. Is this a known issue, and is there a fix? Thanks again!

This was already asked, by me of all things. No its not something you can fix. There are some things you can try, but none worked for me. Its just the way the panel is made. My guess is it slowly 'seperates' around the bezel\edge of the screeen? I'm not entriely sure on that.

I dont think his issue is the same issue you had. Mine does something similar, where it seems like its a auto-dimming/brightness setting. If the room is darker, so is the image on the screen and vise versa.

Oh, youa re referring to the room brightness vs. screen brightness? I took it as brightness changes on areas on the screen.

If its the room brightness changing the screen brightness than change the energy saving autodim feature off, or to a different value. You can press the button on the remote near the top for it. That should fix the problem. My day mode has it off, but my night mode has it on min. since my ambient lighting can vary drastically.

Is there any way to get an updated version of Netflix that supports profiles and push-from-device (like Chromecast) features? The Chromecast-like feature is supposedly available in 2012 LG TV models.

I doubt it, the 2012's are on a different platform, they get all the updates and goodies including Netflix 3D etc etc.

Thats not to say LG can't push out an update for these models, but I highly doubt they will since Netflix SuperHD isn't available on our models still and its been out for months.

Hi all, I'm sorry if this has already been addressed but I could not find a definitive answer: does the (47) LW5600 output 5.1 audio via ARC? I have my Denon AVR-2113Ci connected to the LG via HDMI, and occasionally I watch things on the LG using one of its apps or through MediaLink, with the audio getting passed through to the Denon via ARC. I'm just wondering whether 5.1 audio is transmitted this way, and if not, whether an optical cable would do the trick. Thanks!

I would agree with your 'variable' of brightness. I do think 49 is appropriate as opposed to 55.

However, I think the rest is spot on!! Thank you kindly good sir!

These settings make some high quality sources look like crap, unfortunately. Lots of noise and artifacts, very distracting. The Blade Runner 30th Anniversary Blu-Ray (1080p/24fps, THX Cinema) looks absolutely stunning with my preferred settings. Similar for the Vudu HDX version of the same movie (Final Cut, with Standard user settings mimicking THX). Not so much with those suggested above.

I'll stick with THX Cinema on sources that support it, and Standard User set to mimic THX where possible. If you're looking for a bit brighter picture with same cinema quality, THX Bright Room is nice. Thanks for sharing. A personal preference, for sure.

Standard settings (THX Cinema-like) for reference:
Backlight 30
Contrast 83
Brightness 51
Sharpness 50
Color 53
Dynamic Contrast Off
Dynamic Color Off
Clear White Off
Skin Color 0
Noise Reduction Off
Super Resolution Off
MPEG Noise Reduction Off
Gamma Medium
Eye Care Off
Color Gamut Wide
Tru Motion Off
LED Local Dimming Off

Yes, that model does send out 5.1 (or the audio signal it has) via ARC to the receiver. Just make sure you ahve ARC on in the menu.

Hi everyone.

I'm very upset by the EZ Settings now... I just managed to reset my White Balance values in there - which of course didn't match the original value.
I didn't write down the values before playing with this, and now I'm getting a feeling that I've broken things really bad :-(

Would anyone please write up the original White Balance settings (Cool, Medium, Warm) for this TV? My model is 47LW650W (European Version) - but I'm sure it's the same panel as this one?

These are the values I need:

R-Gain
G-Gain
B-Gain
R-Cut
G-Cut
B-Cut

THANKS IN ADVANCE. I'll be delightful if anyone can help me with this - will save my TV.

I've done a bunch of reading, but I'm pretty confused / overwhelmed. So, hopefully someone here can clear things up for me.

I'm looking at an "easy mode" option for better quality sound, preferably surround sound, at a lower end price. What was recommended to me was the "VIZIO S4251w-B4 5.1 Soundbar with Wireless Subwoofer and Satellite Speakers" (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00CDIK908/ref=as_li_ss_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=390957&creativeASIN=B00CDIK908&linkCode=as2&tag=igco08-20). After some reading, it is my understanding that the LG 55/LW5600 does NOT output 5.1 audio via the audio optical out. Is this correct? And if so, is there an "easy fix"?

If the above is not fixable, would the Vizio soundbar not be a good option due to only having one optical in? Or is there a cheap work around (ala a switch)? And if there isn't a cheap work around, any similar priced options that you'd recommend for audio?

The inputs I'd want surround sound for are: Xbox 360, Playstation 3, and standard comcast DVR box. In addition, down the line I'm planning on getting next-gen consoles, so I'd like to keep these in mind.

You'll need to look at getting an optical switcher since the LG only outputs 5.1 when its an OTA signal, everything else is downsampled to 5.1. So you'll hook all the sources to the switcher via optical and then manually change the switcher. I don't know if they make an 'automatic' optical switcher.

My advice though? I would look for a soundbar that has HDMI inputs and is the HDMI switcher as well, but to get that with rear separates is probably going to cost a bit more. Its up to you if convenience (and most likely better sound quality) is worth the extra money for that.

I have LG LW series European TV. But I installed American firmware version 05.00.12. After installation TV has some problem. Example I can't see any menu name.

I tried to install European firmware but I doesn't accept that. I think version 04 accepts for installing another region firmware. How can I find version 04? I want to install older American firmware than I can install European firmware. Any suggestion? Anyone has version 04 epk file? Thanks.

post #8150 of 8217
You can go into the service menu and downgrade the firmware. Google your specific model series (You didnt provide it) and service menu.
post #8151 of 8217

Thanks for answer but I can't see any word on the TV. Just images.

For installing firmware, I go to Option menu and press 7 times FAV button. And select epk file from usb. So I need epk file.

You need to go into the Service Menu. The picture you showed is only the normal menu. You should be able to see words in the Service Menu.

It should look similar to this:

Thank you, I tried to go into service menu with android lg service menu explorer application. It needs validation code from TV screen but I can't see this code. :)

I think I will need harmony remote controller. Another way to reach service menu?

Hello community, my roommate and I are debating on purchasing this TV for our place. The one thing I'm not sure on is the 'Response time'. I did some research on this TV and I couldn't find the listed response time for this TV. Does anyone, preferable who games on this TV, notice any lag when they do? Another TV that we're looking at has a response time of 5ms, and we might get that one instead if this TV has any noticeable delay on it.

post #8155 of 8217
are you referring to input lag?

Yes, thanks for clarifying.

Im using my PS3 and 360 on mine, havent noticed any lag, plus the TV has a game mode in case you notice lag.

I don't game but my son does. PS3 HDMI to ONKYO AV Receiver HDMI to LW5600. He's played both with the receiver on and HDMI Thru (receiver off). Before that we had a PS2 hooked up to it directly using a PS3 cable for component video (and stereo audio) while using optical to the receiver (Dolby Digital/Pro Logic II processing). During both setups I've asked my son if he notices any lagging (of which I heard of thanks to AVSF, BTW) and he just responds, "negative." Also, FWIW, my TV'll be 2 yrs old next month and it's held up beautifully. Hope it helps... cool.gif

Yes, my son usually switches to this when gaming... smile.gif

And, in case you're wondering, he's been playing God Of War III, DMC, Lego Batman 2, Little Big Planet Karting, and lately a lot of Gran Turismo 5... wink.gif
