NANO LG LV9500 Official Owner's thread - Page 9

post #241 of 1747
I received mine yesterday, 55LV9500-UA.AUSYLHR made in August. I just did the firmware update to VERSION 04.00.18.

Nice TV out of the box, but still playing with the settings.

I'm sure this is a stupid question, but can you change any settings when using the standard settings ?

I did play and made changes so I have an expert one now, I turned off the true motion as well.

If anyone has any settings their currently using, I would appreciate if you could pass them along.

Thanks.

I don't know what was in the update but I updated.

Is anyone somewhat dissatisfied with this TV? It certainly isn't worse than my old 50 inch projection but there seems to be a lot of light blooming when bright objects are on screen. For example, the > and || from my PS3 show a good amount of fuzziness or blooming. I also see a good deal of light or blurriness when viewing from an off angle. Anyone else get that? It seems pretty bad.

I'd say its a solid TV, just a little worse than I was expecting given the full array local dimming. Then again, blooming is supposedly an issue for the $3K Sony version too.

I have all my components going through my receiver and I had to add 70 ms because the voice was out of synch. Never had to do that before, seems odd given this is '480 hz' or whatever it is.

I also had to use game mode when trying to play a game or the lag on standard mode was unbearable.

Seems like some of these things shouldn't be an issue?

I was thinking - is there a way to hook this up so that the PS3 and DirecTV receiver don't have to go through the HDMI on the receiver? I know I could with the old digital audio hookups not sure with HDMI. Might eliminate the lag.

Also, I tried to program the DTV remote for this TV but it couldn't be found, which sucks. Batteries were too low to try to learn the codes or whatever it does.

I noticed on a few of my channels the voice is out of sync as well, could you help me out with how you corrected yours ? Thanks.

Tv has been fantastic..viewing angles aren't the best in the world but I wasnt expected plasma-type angles..as far as the lag goes did you TTY turning trumotion off?
Tv has optical audio out so you can run all the hdmi sources to the tv then run optical out from the tv to the receiver.

Unfortuntaely despite the IPS panel used in the screen, it seems to be a side effect of local dimming screens that blooming is noticable when viewing off angle. The Sony HX929 also does this.
Personally, I don't find it a problem as it's really only noticable in exaggerated scenes - such as the Oppo screen saver which has the Oppo logo in white against a black screen. You can actually watch the dimming zones change as the logo scrolls around the screen.

My seating positions are at 4,6 and 8 o'clock in reference to the screen and I don't find it a big problem. To be honest, i'm still amazed by the black levels, which I notice a lot more than any off angle blooming.

With regards to the audio delay, I too had an issue at first with Foxtel, but after power cycling the box, my amp and the TV it must have "synced" better as I have no issues now. I recently ran the Disney WOW disk and couldn't (by eye obviously) detect any delay in the audio delay test.

My receiver has an option to change the delay on the audio to sync it with the picture. I added 70 MS. It was previously 0. Seems to work OK.

Amazed that they're good or amazed that they are bad?

That they're so good
Having come from Plasma land and always hating on LCD for their crappy black levels.

No brand of passive should work. We already established that the set doesn't have a passive (FPR) LCM, and that it has the hardware for Active 3D and doesn't have the hardware for passive 3D.

Sold off the old Sammy 61" HLT (was starting to get the dreaded 'stars' issue) and using my Dell U3011...I was finally able to setup delivery via e-mail with AIT, so here's hoping, I should have mine on Wednesday...

Has anyone had the set calibrated or performed one themselves? Looking for some starter settings (will be using the DVE Blu-Ray disc as well).

I have a W. I received it today. Apparently that means I will not be able to activate 3D. Oh well it may be going back anyway. I still have to get my picture settings corrected with a bluray disc. I will either do it tonight or tomorrow night.

Why might it be going back?

The clear part of my bezel on top of the tv was scratched up on the inside. It doesn't affect the tv screen, but it was really noticeable. The clear part actually has a darkened sheen over it. I actually used a felt tip marker to cover it and it did the job for the most part, but there is still some noticeable marks. Its bugging me because this is an LG screwup. It was put together knowing there was a defect. There was just no way to miss it. Someone didn't care.

If the rest of the TV is fine and the problem is just cosmetic, would it be easier to just have LG replace the bad part?

At least if you send it back, the rest of us will know how HSN's return policy is.

This is true. And if the PQ ends up being outstanding in the end, do I really want to return this one knowing a bad or broken one comes in its place? I dont know. I know im being picky, but $1500 is a lot of money to me.

I think everyone on this forum is picky.

I have to do a bit more tweeking, but so far I do have a bit of a uniformity issue that i am hiding right now by turning down my backlight. It was at 90 I am now down to 82 i believe. My black bars are good(they blend). Full black screen, not so hot right this minute. I use the beginning of Halloween for my tweek tests. It is the ultimate beginning to see where your black levels and motion resolution are. It has it all. It def. showed me where my clouding spots were. I've also been going back and forth with tru-motion on and real cinema off, both on, and real cinema on and tru-motion off. Right now I am trying to get a good feel of how much judder is normal and tweeking out the hesitation and slight artifacting that tru-motion causes. It's been difficult to say the least. Sometimes I think I have it nailed down and then I see something abnormal, so I know this may take awhile.
post #268 of 1747
Are you using local dimming? My backlight doesn't look great either when local dimming is turned off, but I can't see any clouding or other backlight uniformity issues with it on. A totally black screen should be pitch black. You need to leave brightness at 50 though, as higher values raise the black level even with local dimming.

Yeah, i went through that and made sure my local dimming was on high. I re-did my picture wizard and it looks more punchier. But and this is a big But, I keep seeing like a haziness come over the tv. It's hard to notice but it's there. I know not all movies are perfect, but I know Halloween inside and out. It's subtle, but it'll go from clear normal movie to like a hazy film over the glass look. I don't know. Ever since this last adjustment it looks incredible to extremely ******. I've got to screw with it more.
post #270 of 1747
Hmm, strange. I've just got local dimming on low and haven't noticed anything like that. I'm not sure what the problem could be, though maybe it has something to do with having the backlight at 80-90 (I think the default is 30)?

Also I've noticed that the artifacting when TruMotion is on seems mainly to do with the de-blur setting -- jacking up the de-judder setting didn't seem to cause as many issues. Real Cinema I think is just to remove pulldown issues for 24p playback and shouldn't introduce artifacts.
