Bingo.... A friend brought over his Blu-Ray player, and it displayed the aspect ratio perfectly. I am so happy there is no problem with my TV.
Thanks tampa8

No problem, glad you found the problem.

Hi everyone, I have read some posts here and still can't figure out how to get 5.1 sound. I have the 55lm6700 and a Onkyo TX-SR600. I have an xbox and pc hooked up via hdmi to the tv and optical cable from the tv to receiver. I have been trying to get 5.1 from tv to receiver for the last few hours and had no luck. Only getting stereo. Is my receiver not compatible with the tv for 5.1?
post #1685 of 2128
Like the vast majority of tvs the LG won't output 5.1 via it's optical digital output from external source devices, only when using the set's own digital tuner and only when tuned to a channel broadcasting in 5.1. You can run optical cables from source devices directly to your AVR in addition to HDMI to the set.

Yes u can enable the dolby digital by accessing to the service menu of the tv. Mine is already activated.

Some people here also reported that had to turn on some LG SmartLink feature to get this to work, even though they didn't need that feature per se. Also discussed earlier in this thread.

I made the change in the service menu, and at least the 7600 does indeed transmit 5.1 over optical in other than the digital tuner. Using the apps such as Vudo produces 5.1. In addition my satellite receiver is in 5.1 either when directly connected to the TV via HDMI then the sound routed to my audio receiver via the optical, or the satellite receiver going directly to my audio receiver. The audio receiver detects 5.1. For instance with Vudu, play a trailer for a movie and the receiver is not showing 5.1. Play that same movie using the free 2 minute clip, and it now shows as 5.1, not to mention you can hear the difference.

My Xbox to the TV to the receiver=DD
Stream movies from PC to the TV to the receiver=DD
Stream from USB to TV to receiver=DD
Sony Bluray to the TV to the receiver=stereo
DTV to the TV to the Receiver=stereo

I have an old JBL with only 2 optical in and no HDMI.

im set up pretty much the same way except for a different receiver. all my videos that have 5.1 play fine. i dont remember turning on any lg settings, but are you sure that your source material has 5.1?

Thank you but I am stuck with the remote programing. Following these instructions http://www.avsforum.com/t/1421119/solution-found-dts-passthrough-for-lg-xxlm6200-models I am stuck on step 3. I got 2 remotes I have been trying, RCA crk76sg2 and a Access 3 One For All. I was able to program the one for all remote to where I can turn the tv on and off. When do I input the code10856? Push down button 2 as in the number 2 on the new remote?
post #1694 of 2128
sorry I didn't read through the whole thread, but how's the Logitech Harmony support for this TV? I'm thinking about grabbing maybe a Harmony 650 during black friday, I don't wanna do it though if I'll still end up using the magic remote in tandem with the Harmony.

Would I be able to control the tv with completely just the Harmony?

Thanks
post #1695 of 2128
I've had Harmonys of one kind or another for 7 or 8 years. They can be made to do whatever the original equipment remote will do once they're set up, but it's becoming more and more of a pain to get them set up this way. Over the years the Harmony setup software's been dumbed down so that it's more difficult to actually fully customize the remote, but easier to set up basic functions. The user interface on these sets is just not really designed for conventional remotes and works better, imho, with that weird (at first) magic wand thingy the set comes with.

I'd still recommend the Harmony if you've got multiple source devices in a system with an AVR etc. simply because it makes it easier to operate the system as a whole, but for doing things like changing picture settings or navigating netflix I reach for the magic remote.

Turmotion To your taste. I use Smooth mostly, but turn off for movies.
Aspect Ratio JUST SCAN
NOTE - I found changing brightness to 59 and Gamma to 2.2 gives just a little better blacks.
which are your settings for games? and for 3d?

AppleTV 2
Xbox 360
Previously I had the first 3 hooked up via HDMI and the last via components and optical to the receiver, then HDMI out to the TV. I also was using the optical out on the TV back to the receiver using Plex. In the future I may want to add a dedicated antenna to pick up local channels as well.
If I pick up a soundbar with 2 HDMI inputs and an ARC HDMI channel, would this make sense:
ARC to ARC connection
FIOS, PS3 and AppleTV to TV
360 (least used) to Sound bar
What sort of audio limitations would I run in to in this situation?
I need the answer to this as well, please

Software update 04.22.00 out today for the 7600, perhaps for the 6700 also....
post #1699 of 2128
Just checked on my 55LM6700 and no update available. Current version is still 04.20.18. Thanks anyways, though.
post #1700 of 2128
^^^Might only be available if you've got your set in "engineering mode" which involves some chicken dance with an RCA universal remote. To me "engineering update"=experimental and I'm not interested in bricking a set with experimental firmware after voiding the warranty.
post #1701 of 2128
my firmware now is 4. 22. 00. and my set is working wonderful and fabulous and i still have my warranty and everything.
my set is 7600.

I am just going to assume you have the 7600 model since you didn't mention anything about that. Hoping more changes come to the 6700 model.

Ditto. Nothing mysterious about it, and once again not from some third party site.....

I think the Harmony works well, in particular when you tell it the TV is not an LM6700, but an earlier model. I use it all the time, and barely touch the magic remote. The magic is probably better for changing picture settings, but I don't do that very often, nor do I use Netflix.

Hi,
I've been a mostly happy owner of a 47LM6700. But i feel many movies in Mkv 3d sbs lack of pop outs, they kind of stay in the screen, whereas the pop out works great on youtube video's. It doesn't seem to be a problem with the quality of the file, the youtube ones are not of a great quality. I would like to know what you think to be the best 3d settings, to get the best out of my tv.
Thanks

They go away after 5-10 mins, but it's really annoying. I called LG and they have someone coming to look at it on Friday morning. But I wanted to get some insight from you guys here.
Also, on an unrelated note, what are the best manual 3D settings for 2D-3D conversion? I currently have it set at 15 Depth and +4 Viewpoint.

The TV repair guy didn't know what the problem was, so LG authorized a panel replacement. They're coming to do it tomorrow. I'm still interested in getting people's 2D-3D conversion settings.

For all the ****tards wasting my time writing about 7600s
post #1708 of 2128
Why are many 7600's owners talk in this thread? So confused.

i dont think that has anything to do with the file extension, its the movie. lots of 3d movies have no pop out, but have a lot of depth. i have sammys adventure in mkv and theres a lot of pop out moments.

go check out the 3d content forums to find out which movies have pop out scenes.
