NANO LG LV9500 Official Owner's thread - Page 11

post #301 of 1747
Still on the fence about this set (still curious about the 3D thing). So, it has been discussed that this is an active 3D set, and that LG's 2011 3D active glasses won't synch. Has anyone tried last year's glasses, or one of those "universal" 3D active glasses to see if they will synch? Come on, someone please be adventurous!

BTW, lot's of great info posted so far by all!

It appears there are some 2D 55LW9500 TVs, and some 3D 55LW9500 TVs. If the Remote is missing the Red, in the Middle, 3D button - I assume you have the 2D version, but, can 3D be enabled on these sets?

LG AG-S250
3D Active Glasses for 2011 LG 3D-ready TVs (rechargeable battery)
55LW9500 3D TV
2 Versions - IR and RF - Which Version are we going to need? or AG-S100 (Old) AG-S110 (New)
Seems LG changed mid stream with regards to these models.

Anyone have any ideas to get it to synch on its own? I googled up some LG synch issues and apparently it was a pretty big topic with the LG 55LH90...one solution was to just use Linear PCM (LPCM) as the older LGs had some pass through issues or something with not being HDMI 1.3 compliant...

It seems to be fine now adjusting via the receiver, I just don't like the idea of it.

I also had some pretty big synch issues. The issue for me was that I was passing the video feed from my set-top box and blu-ray player into the receiver and the optical audio separately into a different amp, so there was a significant desynch. I solved the problem by passing the audio into the receiver, then passing audio from the receiver by HDMI into the TV (the receiver doesn't do optical audio out), then passing it PCM from the TV into the amp. That way I can use either the synch correction in the TV or in the amp, and I find that I don't actually usually need it without TruMotion on.

As for photos, if I have a chance I might try to take some later today, both in a brighter room and in a dark room.

I am no where near a TV expert but so far I been happy with it but I also do not have an TV to compare it with. My other TV is a 32 lcd sammy which I bought years and years ago. On paper it looked great for the price 55" local dim 480Hz built in wifi for 1500 shipped. I do notice some minor light leakage across the TV but I have only noticed when the TV is not playing anything (except I have noticed when streaming netflix) but I have not seen it any where else for example black scenes when streaming from my NAS.

I'm happy with the TV so far. I am still playing with the settings, but for the price point I paid for this TV, I'm not complaining at all. I was not concerned about the lack of 3D, I was just looking for a nice LED TV. Now let me be the first to admit, I'm very picky, and I'm also never satisfied. LOL. I have had a few neighbors stop by, and they were very impressed with the picture quality of this set.

Arkasi55 has confirmed activating 3d on his set - only issue it appears, is with syncing the glasses.
Nony has confirmed that All LV9500 and LW9500 have 'Active' 3d hardware.

I may have missed the post somewhere but has it even been verified this display has an emitter?
post #309 of 1747
Check the 3D sets at your local retailer. The 3D sets have Black Panels. Passive panels can also be seen to have Black Lines. Non 3D sets have the Dark Grey Panels. Haven't personnaly checked, but did receive this information from a reliable observer.

If your set ships with a magic motion remote (mmr), and your mmr is working ok, then you have an rf emitter-

I received mine today and will say the following.

1. Best value in hometheater.
2. Excellent picture lx9500 without banding.
3. In my opinion, if you do not mind the reflection, as good of a 2D set as you can buy.
post #312 of 1747
To those asking whether the TV is worth $1500.
In my opinion, given this set was intented to be LG's flagship only 5 months ago and with the exception of officially supported 3D it absolutely is worth the money.

The TV utilises flagship technology such as full array LED dimming, found only in screens worth more than double the price from other vendors.

The photos posted with the flashlighting are (at least in my screen) only visible on the start screen and when the screen disables the full array and reverts to edge lit.
In normal viewing modes/scenarios i've not found any uniformity issues.

I've already posted some photo's of brightly lit environment (in store photo's) in the LG 2011 thread - and linked earlier in this thread, but I'll also get some photo's later today if others haven't already.

Did you get a W or a Y model?

My panel is definitely dark gray. Others have panels that are completely black?

Built in July. The thing was a pain in the ass to put together alone.

One thing I can say is that regardless of the inner components the external build quality is top notch. I had a Vizio XVT474SV for a few weeks before and there's just no comparison. This thing is solid.
post #316 of 1747
OK, grabbed some in home photos for those asking for some.
My living area is very open plan and the wall opposite the TV is floor to ceiling glass the whole length. Obviously, this doesn't play well with a glossy screen and was my original decision maker to replace my plasma with an LCD.

As i've alluded to before, the thing that made me still want to go with the uber glossy LG (no other matt options anyway!) was that the LCD brighness would be enough to "punch" through the reflections. These photos should illustrate that.


Here is a photo with the blinds up, no internal lights on, TV off. AKA mirror mode for the horses, cows and kangaroos

Here is a photo with the blinds up, still no internal lights on, but TV off. You can see that reflections are only really visible in the black areas

And finally, a photo with internal lights on, blinds down

How much light bleed do others have when the dimming is turned off (like at startup)? Mine has 5-6 distinct spots around the edges and the top right corner is especially bad. Like others have said, it all goes away once dimming kicks in. I just hope it's not indicative of harmful stresses being placed on the panel.

If you have an iPhone/iPad/iPod touch or Android powered phone, you can download the LG remote app.
When you access the web browser, it brings up a keyboard on the phone which makes typing much easier.

Sorry, but that makes no sense. Please refrain from posting questionable information as fact. You are not here to confuse. And remember to always cite your sources.

Given the pics and your description, it is safe to say you have the worst case scenario for reflections! And admittedly, the set does a good job of "punching through", as you say. For anything full screen, I'm guessing you'd be hard-pressed to be distracted by reflections on the thin extreme edges of the set. I'm still suspicious that I'd be bothered watching letter-boxed Blus, though, even though that is reserved largely for darkened room viewing. Maybe if I transitioned to lights completely off...

Regardless, given the scarcity of options for backlit local dimming sets I'll perhaps have to give this a go with a vendor that has a no-questions asked return policy.

Also worth observing - kind of surprising how wavy the reflection of the room was - I'm assuming that most of the windows & wall/ceiling joints are staright lines. The thinner these sets get, the more their rigidity suffers, obviously. Makes the case for backlit local dimmer vs. edgelit potentially even more important over the life of the set?

Thank you again!

Wow I hope when I get my set If I will be able to get this tv to function probably. I am not knowledgable with calibrating any setting. will this be easy to function for someone like me Help!!!!!!!
post #323 of 1747
I just had this tv delivered last night. I have been searching for a replacement for my XBR8 and unfortunately the LG isn't going to work for me. I originally purchase a 8000 series Samsung LED. The picture on the Samsung was fantastic and really popped, Even my girlfriend said wow when she saw the picture. But I couldn't stand the banding, flashlights and bleeding the set had so I had to return it.

I figured I would give LG a shot before I spent the extra money on the XBR929, but as others have said this thing is a gigantic mirror. I have a mirror behind my couch and while watching tv last night with no lights on I spent my time watching the tv reflect the light coming off the mirror. This morning I woke up and turned the tv and and could barely see the image because of the wall of windows I have to the right of the tv. The XBR8 with it's matte screen and the Samsung 8000 even with it's gloss screen did a great job of daytime viewing with the same conditions. Unfortunately in my room the LG seems to be overwhelmed.

Isn't the 929 also covered in glass?

The XBR929 has the Gorilla glass panel that has some sort of antil glare properties that do help. I have a friend that has one and he has windows directly behind the tv and there is some glare but nowhere near as bad as this.

The Samsung 8000 also is a glass panel and that too handled the reflections significantly better then the LG does.

Both true, however the Samsung 8000 series has major backlight issue that make it not acceptable for me and if you go to the Sony XBR929 forum you will find these to have a major issue with what looks like a large banding on one side of the screen. I stilll agree the XBR is a great set but you can purchase 2 LG LV9500 for the price.

All displays are problem in bright lighting, a lamp or two is not a big deal with this set. If you have direct sunlight that cannot be controlled it would be a deal breaker.

How do you think the LG compares to the XBR8 and D8000 in little to no light? Do you still own either the XBR8 or D8000?

I only had time to watch the LG in a low light situation for about a half hour last night. If I ignore the glare that I was seeing because of the mirror behind me then it kills the D8000 in dark scenes because of the local dimming. The one thing I found funny is the D8000 while watching 2:35:1 content, the black bars seemed to be darker then the LG. On my set the LG's black bars don't blend into the bezel and I do see some blooming. If I turn my black level to low instead of high the black bars are darker but crushes the blacks very bad. I am still playing with the settings so maybe I can find a happy medium.

Compared to the XBR8 I don't see a big picture difference. Again I haven't watched the tv enough, but I feel like if it wasn't for wanting to step up from a 46" to a 55" then it would be a downgrade. I had the XBR8 pretty dialed in and feel like the blacks were better and definitely didn't crush any blacks during dark scenes. I obviously would need to play with the settings for longer because for all I know with a little more tweeking it may be better then the XBR8.

But for me the daytime viewing is going to kill the LG for me. I could post a picture later with what I am dealing with but in this room I wouldn't put up blinds to control the light during the day. I wish the D8000 wasn't so bad with flashlighting and bleeding because I would of kept that. Guess the search continues.

The XBR8 is a great set, still one of the best LCD sets made, the Elite of the LCD world. The D8000 Samsung is to flawed to compare to any set, blacks look good but are crushed and the edgelit light bleed will drive any videophile crazy. When you watch baseball or golf on a D8000 the outer grass is always brighter than the inner grass, drives you crazy. I watched baseball on my LG and loved it.:

Please remember you are comparing the LG to sets that cost almost twice the price and in some cases twice the price. It is a LX9500 without the banding, it is that darn good. The only time I see a problem if you have a mirror directly accross from it (I would remove the mirror) or uncontrolled direct sunlight.
