One and a half weeks (with two weekends in between) after the latest firmware update and I have not gotten any reboots yet. I also noticed that Plex had an update just last week and I'm not sure if that helped or something (I haven't manually turned off DLNA yet)

Anyone else still getting reboots after the firmware update? Hopefully this fix lasts.

I haven't noticed any since the latest firmware update. Also have not tried turning DLNA off yet.

No reboots here either. I may have to give Plex a try again if the latest firmware fixed the problem.

I apologize if I missed this in an earlier post but I recently bought a Harmony 650 remote and was able to access the EZ-ADJ menu using password 0413 but it seems all the "Tool Options" are greyed out, including THX and 3D THX feature. Anyone know how to access this using only the Harmony remote? Perhaps an alternate password?

Thanks,

If anyone has this LG remote (AKB73615313 provided with a LM7600_see post#1336-thx1138 & #1337-tampa8 for a pic of the remote) do you know if the “FAV” and “FLASHBK” function button will work with the LG 55LM6700 TV? I know you can set up several groups of Favorites (i.e.FAV) but the “Magic Remote Control” provided with the LM6700 doesn’t have a button to access that function.

Hi All,

I have been lurking in these forums for a while and have read most of the posts regarding the LM6700 and also the 7600. I am certainly not a videophile like many of you, and I absolutely appreciate the depth of your knowledge on these displays. So, my question is, as an average TV viewer, should the fact that this TV is only a 60hz panel matter that much to me? In everyday, average viewing, does this make a difference? My viewing consists of a bit of everything, from HD network shows, to streaming via Roku, to an occasional Blue Ray. I do watch a good amount of hockey, so maybe that should be a big consideration
Also, would this come back to bite me say in a couple of years? I am on the fence about purchasing either the 6700 or 7600 and I just cant make up my mind. My heart says the 6700 because I think it looks a bit better but for the $100 price difference, my brain says go with the 7600.

Any thoughts would be appreciated.

To date the only answer is, there is not way with any remote. You have to have a computer connection to the TV with the correct software. There are some changes you can make, but none of the greyed out ones.
One of the most wanted ones, the THX settings don't need you to set in those menus. They have been posted a couple of times either here or in the 7600 thread.
post #1389 of 2128
tampa can you explain a bit more about accesing the secret menu of the 6700 with a computer?


And about THX settings you mean by using the values that a tech gave to an user an aplying it to ISF1 and ISF2 ???


thanks

Getting to the service menu can be done any number of ways.
However a tech has to connect to the TV with a computer (or over the internet may be possible) to make changes to greyed out selections. There is no remote or codes that will unlock them, according to the Tech.
The computer has to have software to unlock them.

Yes, those THX settings are exactly what the actual setting would do, again according to the Tech. Someone else also posted them I believe, same settings. It produces the best skin tones I may have ever had on a TV.
post #1392 of 2128
thanks tampa for the answer.

the settings posted are for 7600 model ?? or for 6700 ???

can you post the link for 6700 ???


thanks

If H/V=50 there, so its H/V=25, right?

and if its 10 point IRE, heres is 20 point IRE, does it changes something?
post #1394 of 2128
thanks LeonHeart but I want the settings for the LM6700.

The other panels may be different and THX for LM6700 is what we need.
post #1395 of 2128
One setting to watch for indeed is the sharpness. It won't be 50 on the 6700/7600 models it will be 25. Reason is the scale on most older LG's seems to be based on 100. The scale on the LM6700/7600 models is 50. Using both the built in wizard and a calibration disk, and also my own eyes, 50 is too high. 25 is correct.

No, 20 IRE or 10 IRE for the purpose of the THX setting makes no difference.

is it possible to connect 3.5mm jack speaker on lm6700?? becoz i cant see 3.5mm port on back of the tv.....thanks
post #1397 of 2128
So yesterday Frys was advertising the 47LM6700 for $850. I called Amazon and they agreed to price-match it; I have until this afternoon to decide.

Can someone explain to me what the issue is with the De-Blur option not being available with the current firmware? I'm not sure I understand what the issue is from reading the thread.

Does it mean the television is set to DeBlur, and can't be turned off, or does the television not have DeBlur, and it can't be turned on?

Thanks!
post #1398 of 2128
the 3.5mm port is an input only. The optical and HDMI ARC are the only outputs.. You will need to use an optical to RCA/3.5mm convertor to get that..costs around $25 on amazon... I use one for my 2.1 speaker system and it works fine..

im interested this as well, can you post an amazon link of the item you mentioned?

So with this "converter", you can use a 2.1 speaker system for your tv speakers?

It does not exist. The "Debate" is can it even be added.

The next model up, LM7600 to me is better overall and the trumotion is silky smooth. But if you don't care about De-blur the 6700 is better than probably any other TV in that price range.

Agreed. I returned my 6700 for the 7600 (see post a few up on this page) and the 7600 is a much better overall unit. For the $98 difference it was a no brainer. I also did the screw trick that someone got harassed for earlier and it totally works. My edge bleed is almost non existent. I had light bleed at the top center and right that was driving me crazy with letterbox movies. My screen "creaked" when cleaning it out of the box if you applied any pressure to it. I am not a technician by any means. I don't build tvs and have never opened one but here is my amateur opinion:

These new sets are extremely thin as it the screen material. I noticed just when cleaning the fingerprints with microfiber after installing it that there is much more give to the screen with minimal pressure that any of my other LCD sets. I don't believe in "massaging" the screen or putting any excessive pressure on it. Once again, I just noticed this while using minimal pressure to clean the fingerprints from mounting it. Basically, I started by turning one of the back panel screws directly behind where the bleed was about one or two turns to loosen it. The bleed changed. As I tightened it back down, the bleed would reappear. Now, I don't want to leave loose screws hanging around, so i loosened the adjacent screws on each side, immediate left and immediate right, and depending on the order in which I retightened them, the bleed would reappear or stay diminished. Long story short, I loosened each of the screws along my top row only one or two turns. Through trial and error and seeing how the uniformity responded to the order in which I retightened them, I was able to get rid of almost all of my bleed. Now, if you push hard on the panel when cleaning it, you will undo what you have just done. It is almost as if when the panel is installed, if it is not 100% perfect with the pressure across the entire panel, you will have bleed. With local dimming off, it is still noticeable, but the local dimming totally removes it from my normal viewing.

IMO, this is not screwing with my warranty or the integrity of my set. I am not opening it or breaking any type of seal. I am not modifying it in any way. I am not endorsing this method, but I was on my 7th (I think) tv and I was just getting to the end of my rope with all of the manufacturing issues. As of now, I am 100% happy with the picture. I have bright and dark room settings and minimal edge bleed. My set had very good uniformity out of the box with mainly the bleed being the problem. You do have to be careful, though. I initially made mine worse until I figured out what I was doing.

Yes...I have a logitech z623 speaker system. This is the convertor i bought... http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B005K2TXMO note the output is RCA.. you will have to also set the speaker output in the tv settings to PCM... Unfortunately the output is not variable so u cannot control the volume using the tv remote..

The LM6700 can have deblur option added. This same debate was brought up when people started questioning whether Trumotion could be enabled on the LM6700 because of the type of screen, 60 Hz, blah blah blah since it took a long time to come out because people assumed they were told that it should have been released in May. Long and behold the Trumotion feature was added in a firmware update in late June.

Just to add some credence to this issue, I called LG shortly after the Trumotion firmware update back in June to complain about the lack of the Deblur option and the LG CSR said that they are aware of the lack of Deblur issue and they told me that the Deblur option was not up to LG standards so it didn't get included in the firmware update. He assured me that a future firmware update would include the Deblur option.

The thing that bugs me is when people assume certain features can't be added without confirming with LG or even understanding the technical details.

Well with respect that's your opinion, as I said it's a debate. Since it has not been added, it's still a debate. Trumotion has not been added by the way, one component has, De-Judder. LG can tell you what it wants, you choose to believe them and that is fine. I will when it's added and works. The 7600 has it, works better than any LG I have had, it sure seems like there is a problem getting true De-Blur on the 6700 because something is not present to allow it or allow it by a software update. LG may overcome it, but again, this is why there is a debate.

Call it whatever you want but to me Trumotion already has been partially implemented. I understand that its still a debate about the Deblur but like I said even if Dejudder was just added, it was very clear to me that there was a difference with the firmware update when you toggled the Trumotion option compared to the old 03.20.31 firmware which was non existent even though LG claimed Trumotion was automatically turned on (which was not).

I don't believe that De-blur can't be solved with a software update. Unless you can point out what specific hardware limitation there is, I don't see why this can't be eventually solved. Problems like this either have to be a hardware or software issue.
post #1407 of 2128
Of course De-blur can and will be added. It's software related, not hardware. It'll just be a waiting game like De-Judder was.

and has anyone seen this remote that is included with the new line on LG Google TVs ?

post #1408 of 2128
set dejudder 2 and change the hdmi mode to pc..it will reduce the motionblur
post #1409 of 2128
I apologize if this has already been covered. I went a couple pages back but I'm not sure if I'm using the correct terminology.

I just bought a 47LM6700. I've got it connected to my PS3 and when watching Blu-Ray discs it looks like people have heat-waves coming off of them as they move. The best way I can think to describe it is the blurring of the picture is similar to that of a hot asphalt street with heat waves coming off. Is there something wrong with my TV, or is this just LED motion blur?

Previous to this TV I had a 2005 Panasonic Plasma 1080i and a 2007-ish LG LCD 1080p and I have not noticed anything like this before. Comparing TV's at the store is almost impossible as many times as they have the signal split. I may have to return the TV because this is just unacceptable. I don't think I can ever get used to it.

i think what you are describing is a side effect of trumotion. try turning that off, or use the "user setting" to find somehting acceptable.
