That's what I did, however I just feel like I'm missing out ont the true potential of the TV and want to have everything hooked up perfectly.

Can't tell you until I get mine. Hopefully it will get here before the ISF Pro Calibrator.

What i'm asking, perhaps i'm not being clear enough, is whether there is a difference in your findings between the LW9500 and the LV9500 models you've listed.

Is there a listing for 55LW9500-TA.AAUWLH in the material you've been researching?

55LW9500-UA KCCYLJR
55LW9500-UA CSKD

If you do not have a North American set, there won't be a listing.

Whenever I turn the TrueMotion on, it actually leaves a blur when watching sports and fast moving objects. The higher I turn the TrueMotion on, the worse the picture gets and at one point it almost appears that the ball dissappears on screen. To me it seems that somehow the picture can't keep up with the speed but only during TrueMotion because when it's off there is no blur.

This is how I am currently setup. My TV is connected to my 3-year old Yamaha AV receiver through the LG supplied HDMI. The receiver is then connected to my PS3 and DirecTV HDDVR through additional HDMI cables and optical audio cables.

Do I just need to connect everything seperatly to the TV through high speed HDMI cables or do I need to upgrade my receiver. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I just got mine and immediately turned the TrueMotion off. It took about 2 seconds of watching a Blu-Ray to realize it is dreadful. Its the same as what every TV has now and produces the soap opera effect.

I haven't watched any sports with it on, maybe I'll mess around with that during the NFL game tonight. I doubt, however, that I'll use it.

-------

Other thoughts:

So far looks fantastic but I don't have it calibrated and its sitting too low right because I don't have the TV stand yet.

No light leakage and no clouding to report. After I updated the firmware it rebooted and it sure seemed like there was some clouding in the upper left/right corners but it was on a blue screen and the firmware was still loading. I put in Terminator Salvation and paused on one of the opening black scenes........nothing.

The only thing I saw was a little light blurring/blooming/whatever around the PS3 pause bars but I'm not real concerned.
post #215 of 1747
I think the flashlighting/leakage from the upper corners is only visible when local dimming is turned off. I have the same thing on my LW9500. Fortunately I don't see why I'd ever want to turn local dimming off! I've noticed some blooming as you have but it's only really noticeable off-angle and in certain limited circumstances (eg fine text, blocks of colour against a black screen). I'd say the level of blooming is at least comparable to the HX929 judging from the pictures I've seen. I'd say that black crush is fairly well-controlled under local dimming as well -- shadow detail remains good if the gamma is calibrated correctly.

If you can find some 1080p60 content and have a suitable player to play t back with then u will b using the set to it's full potential..don't play into the whole 480hz game as it's just basically a marketing gimmick after a certain point...sure it's nice to have a quality panel that's fast but anything after 120hz and the benefits are minimal. Now the fact that its a local dimmer is what makes the real difference.
post #217 of 1747
I was lucky, I saw my TV arrived at the AIT distribution center and talked to a nice young lady, and she was able to set it up for delivery tomorrow.
post #218 of 1747
Can people who received this set comment on what part number their set is? There was a post by nony who mentioned different part number and whether it supports 3d. here's the post for reference. Thanks!


55LV9500-UA.AUSYLHR

55LV9500-UA.AUSWLHR

55LV9500-UA.AUSYLJR

55LW9500-UA.AUSYLHR - Control (known to have Active 3D and 288 zones)

Observations-
The Y models have the same LCM as the control, so they should have 288 local dimming zones.
The W and Y models have the same 3D board as the control, so they should support Active 3D in hardware.

Note that the W model has a unique LCM p/n as the W designates a Version 5 LCM.

I found setting De-judder =3 and De-blur=2 allows for smooth motion without the soap opera effect. Give that a shot.

Is HSN sending out different Models of the 55LV9500? Do they even know there are different versions? Going to get interesting!
If some are ending up with 3D models and others with 2D - may be a logistics nightmare.
Nony - what's the dif between the 5V and 6V?

there has been no official confirmation of anyone actually getting 3d to actually work....as in glasses syncing with the tv

So far, everyone who tried the 3D, had the Y model. Now we have someone with a W model to try out the 3D on.
post #226 of 1747
VoidbioV - That pic of the Seahawks game was great. I was looking for glare in it, and when I thought I saw lens flare from the camera's flash, I realized it was the stadium lights reflecting off his helmet.

That said, I have a tortuously bright room the set would go in (white walls, lots of tall windows, 4 skylights to left of wall TV would be on), and my concern with this set would be that it is like looking in a mirror. If anyone with one of these sets in a similarly bright room could take pics displaying its reflectivity in a "worst-case scenario" that would be much appreciated.

Side note: I just returned a 55 LW5600 today - I was hoping it would work because of its matte screen, but couldn't see past the 8-zone edge-lit "local" dimming they implemented on that set. The next set is back-lit local dimming w/ the highest zone count I can afford - but it will have to have a pretty good AR coating if its an all-glass surface - hence the pic request.

Thanks in advance.

I have the W model and would love to try the 3D enabling but the only universal remote I have is my DirecTV RC64R. If anyone knows how to access the EZ menu with it please let me know on here or you can PM me. Thanks!

Just for the heck of it, today when I got off of work I opened my front door and all 3 windows in my livingroom as well as turn on every light and lamp and I had no glare. I will take and post you some pics tomorrow.

All three shipping 55LV9500 variants to date are 3D capable. See my part number analysis, which is based on your efforts (and ignore the presence/absence of 3D glasses in the exploded view pictorial as they tell us nothing).

We can glean more useful information if we had the description for the part numbers that you pulled. You should find some references to V5 and/or V6 in the descriptions.

But more importantly - how does the performance of a V5/V6 set compare with LG's prior flagship models?

LH90 V4
LHX - V4 IOL
LE8500 - V5 IOP
LX9500 - V5 IOP
LEX8 - V5/V6 ALEF
LEX9 - V5 IOL
LZ9700 - V5 IOL
LW9500 - V5/V6 ALEF
LZ9600 - V6 ALEF
LW9800 - V6 ALEF

And specifically, for the US market, how does the 55LV9500 compare with the 55LX9500 and 55LHX?

Some useful references in the following Service Manuals -

I should receive mine some time next week,as per trucking co. told me today.
I will be doing a side-by-side with my LHX as I have dual HDMI outs on my
iSCAN-DUO. I have been told I can not see DSE so I don't know how much help my review will be to you. I have seen DSE on the newer Sharps and a Vizio at Sams Club. I am not parting with my LHX as this set the 9500 is headed for the bedroom. For others that know me, my move has been post-poned till next April/May.
post #236 of 1747
Do we really want a supposedly W 3D set using a slightly older MB V5? Or, questionably a Y 3D unit containing the newer V6 MB. Then to, is anyone getting the questionably YJR 3D V6 MB? (Questionably 3D due to no one proving yes or no yet!)
For those getting the W series - I'm assuming they did NOT come with any glasses?
Distribution: are certain areas receiving certain series only, or is it a mixed bag across the country?
post #237 of 1747
I posted some quick input lag tests I did on my LW9500 in the other LG thread for those interested: http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showt...0#post20816480. Not so great (around 50-60ms at best by my tests) but I recall the LW5600/6500 having similar issues at launch that were fixed in a firmware update so maybe that will also happen here? Luckily I'm not a competitive gamer so I don't notice it much.

As I also said in that post, I spent some time today looking more critically for banding. I did notice some horizontal and vertical banding very occasionally, mainly in fast panning shots across dull backgrounds. However, the bands were not distracting to me and I don't think they would have bothered me if I hadn't been looking for them. They certainly don't seem as bad as some of the videos I've seen of the LX9500 from last year. Other than this rare issue, I can honestly not fault the motion performance of the display, and I'm not using TruMotion either. I'd say it's definitely comparable to my V20 plasma.

Question for everyone who has the 55LV9500, what software version did your t.v. come with?
Mine has

SOFTWARE VERSION: 03.11.51
SDK VERSION: 01.01

Does anyone have any information on the updates? It told me that a new update was available to download, VERSION 04.00.18, but I didn't update.

July FW update was 3.11.43 - yours is newer - will check to see if your's is now the newest. No newer FW listed.

This model isn't even listed in any of the FW update LG areas.
