post #1171 of 2128
how much did you pay for it? I got mine around $1200 OTD with LG 3D bluray player + 12 glasses
post #1172 of 2128
Before everyone jumps on this to me there are a couple of things.

1. Did his TV have tru-motion enabled, meaning was it before the update?

2. The type of tru-motion he seems to be describing is just one of the selections, ClearPlus. That one uses the scanning leds, in addition to interpolation.
"The TruMotion system control both frame interpolation (that calculates new images) and scanning backlights. When set to Clear plus the frame interpolation system is still active along with the scanning backlight system."
http://www.flatpanelshd.com/review.php?subaction=showfull&id=1333359799

3. When I turn on trumotion, (I don't use clear plus mode) there is certainly a difference in smoothness, so whatever is happening works. Camera pans are smoother, looking out a window of a moving car the background becomes less blurred just as my last TV with motion control.

I'm not saying he is right or wrong, but if I am getting the desired results I guess I don't care.

the lg service remote, is this what we r talkin bout?

About $1350 for the 55", which I think is more than enough to warrant complaining about blurriness. Hopefully the De-Blur firmware update will do just that.
post #1175 of 2128

Yes, I didn't realize it was readily available, and it's less than I thought. Might have to get one if it works with this model line. Thank-you!

I am most certainly not as knowledgeable in this area as many on this site, but it sure does sound like intentional misrepresentation to me. Can you say class action suit?

Just wondering if anyone else besides me has called into LG and complained about the lack of "Deblur" option for TruMotion. Please the more noise we create the better. Look at what we have done collectively as a group to get LG to include a manual option to turn ON/OFF TruMotion.

I called about a week ago and the word from the LG CSR is that they are still working on the Deblur feature for TruMotion since it did not meet standards. The LG CSR reassured me that a future firmware update will be available to add the Deblur motion for TruMotion.
post #1180 of 2128

the one the guy was using was more squared (right angles) and not curvy. although he only had one remote with him, so I'm assuming that it works for almost all lg models, so it might also be possible that there's more than one versions of this remote


@tampa8: if you try out the remote and got some cool stuff turned on, let us know and I'll probably give it a try as well biggrin.gif
post #1181 of 2128
Connected my TV to the internet and updated the firmware, previously with no TruMotion option, on the 4th of July. Up to now I had believed the LG claim that TruMotion was on when it wasn't an option, but I don't any more. We watched our first blu-ray last night. I'm glad to have the TruMotion option, but we ended up turning it off. We just couldn't handle it. We went from Clear (7?) to the medium setting (3) to off. Maybe we'll try user setting it to 1 or 2, but I guess I like seeing the movies as I believe they were shot. I do remember Gladiator in the theater being jumpy/juddery. Maybe if I watch that on the TV I'll change my mind.

I'll be sure to let you know. For what it is worth I was assured it works with all the current line-up. Here's a pic from the 7600 service manual, seems to be the same.

I think owners could make a case for misleading advertising. Keep in mind that class action suits are long drawn out affairs that basically benefit lawyers. HBut I'd like to see LG sweat and lose market share.

my 55" 6700 arrived toady, box is in pretty good condition, hooked everything up and turned it on....cracked panel, very top about 1/3 of the way from the right side. Just about the part where the top portion of styrofoam would have ended, Thinking it created a pressure point that during shipping caused the crack. Its pretty bad, but nearly unnoticeable when powered off.

Tried Amazon support but their "big item return center" was closed so have to call back in the morning...first time ive ordered an item like this online, and pretty sure it will be my last. The picture out of the box is so much better then my old DLP it replaced...sans huge freaking crack of course

TruMotion is actually the feature of 120Hz. As mentioned in that article on HD Guru, LG's 120Hz is a half-cooked approach. That may explain why it is not capable of doing Deblur.....
post #1187 of 2128
But with no question, De-Blur works and works well on my 7600. With no question De-Judder works and works well. There is also less artifact in this TV than my last. Take a swiftly moving pan scene, turn Trumotion on, blur is diminished. Turn it back off you immediately see the difference, just like any other TV I have or have had.
I am not qualified to know how it is being done, but saying LG has no De-Blur in any of their models is nonsense, I don't need to be qualified to know what I see.

The 6700 does not have De-blur apparently and that needs to be addressed. But that article seems to say no LG TV's in their present line-up does.

This has nothing to do with it since the LM7600 models and up contain both the Deblur and Dejudder settings for TruMotion. There is nothing wrong with the LG LCD panels that would prevent the inclusion of Deblur. To be honest, what you said is exactly what people thought about the LM6200 and LM6700 models that it was not possible to add TruMotion because of the LCD panels....which is bull. All I know is I called the LG reps and they said that the Deblur option will be available in the next firmware update since it didn't meet standards for this past firmware release.

If you really want to help, please call LG to ask and remind them about the Deblur option and express how disappointed you are that the feature is not included so that your feedback gets sent to the engineers. The more noise we create the better since that is how we were able to get LG to include Trumotion onto the LM6200 and LM6700 models. Deblur should work on the LM6200 and LM6700 models as well since the LM7600 models have it and its just a matter of LG implementing this feature.

But we now know that the 6700's have 60Hz panels. Perhaps the 7600 is the only set with a 120Hz panel and the only one that'll perform well with the deblur.

Lg likes to mass produce. I bet all TVs 6700+ all have the same hardware, the firmware being the only difference except maybe the dual core models. It's probably very possibly to upload firmware from one model to another if we can trick it. Except it would be risky of course. This has been done before on their DVD writers so it's a definite possibility. Besides all video processing on this set seems to be software based. I bet even the contrast ratio is programmable to make the appearance of better higher end hardware on upper models. I want them to release the open sources already so I can poke around. All these sets are probably the same led display as the 480hz set. Just capped.

Has anyone gotten widi to work? I'm trying to use my TV set as the screen for my android tablet wirelessly. So far the only app that's been useful is iMediaShare on android... just streams videos and stuff. Just gives you more options. Doesn't do what I wanted it for though.

Bro dont let one bad order ruin u from ordering again. I have gotn 5 TVs from amazon and none of them had any problems at all. Its not something that always happens, i know its a set back b/c u have to send it back and wait now for a new one but orderingfrom online can save u big money. Amazon has the best return policy in the world so dont worry about that they are very helpful and will exchange it no questions askd.

Have to agree. If you're hoping to order from someone who have never had a delivery issue in their career then you're in for a disappointing life I'm afraid. Nobody is fault free.

OK, purchased this LG 47LM6700 a couple weeks ago at best buy. Love the tv but a few days ago it started making a clicking noise while on, every 10 - 45 seconds. Sounds like it's coming from the back left side when facing the tv. At first I thought it may be the plastic but after searching the net I saw reference to bad capacitors can also a cause the clicking sound. Anyone had this or heard of this problem, is there a way to tell for sure if it's capacitors or thermal nosie from the plastic when the tv heats up?. I'm still within my 30 day return to Best Buy.
Thanks, Ken

I've gotten the WIDI working on mine. I had to update the intel wireless software on my laptop to be compatible with the tv. It still drops connection once or twice shortly after connecting. Usually by the third connection it holds strong though. I won't be using it very often but it will be nice to have when I want to display items from my laptop.

I just got the 55LM6700 -- looks pretty good, but I'm having a weird issue with streaming media. For both netflix and youtube, it streams just fine for a bit, then gets stuck and won't buffer past this point. I'm stumped... any ideas?

Well I don't use youtube much, just a few short videos one day checking it out, and it worked ok. I do use Netflix, and it's unreliable for me for movies, anything longer than an hour. TV shows which are shorter since there's no commercials stream just fine. So if I want to watch a movie, I fire up the PS3.
post #1199 of 2128
I had the same problem until this last update. I called netflix and they tried to tell me it was my connection but that was bull cause I got 34Mbit and measured it.

It worked after they had me enter a reset code on the remote... it was:
Up, Down, Up, Down, Up Up, Down, Down, Left, Right, Left, Right (or something close to that. lol it was like the cheat code for contra on nes). It was entered once i was in the netflix app. That deauthorizes the tv. Once I re-logged in, it all worked fine. Netflix support helped me with that one.

I'd try using the picture wizard... it actually helps out even though it's pretty incomplete as far as asking you stuff. I'd be nice if they asked you to adjust RGB instead of just B.

GAMMA 2.2 (This can brighten it up too)

Didn't mess with the other settings.
