I tried the 3D using the 2D-3D mode and a video from the built-in 3D app. They looked pretty good and the conversion looked better than I expected, definitely better than the conversion on the LW5600. I don't recall noticing the FPR "scan lines" as much during the short time I watched it but I was watching mostly content with a black background so it may be I just didn't see it. The FPR lines really bug me on the 5600.

Thank you for contacting LG Support, I'll be glad to assist you.

We understand your concern about the 120hz feature of the TV, We already forward this concern to our Engineering Dept and they are currently working on this, once the update is available, this can be downloaded by your TV over the internet to upgrade your TVs firmware version.

Hope I was able to answer your question today and if you have other concern, feel free to contact us at 800-243-0000 or visit (too new to post links)

Thank you for choosing LG.

Jayson
LG Support

I've contacted Lg several times, and got different responses from different people. I honestly don't think the customer service reps even know what we are talking about.

I used the disney WOW disk for basic calibration, and i think it looks pretty good. the disk is only $17-18 at amazon. i bought the single disk version, because most people say the 2 disk version is not worth it.

There are some demo scenes as well, and after using the disk, I'd say it is very similar to my plasma.

you can find out more about it here:

Most 2012 models including 6700 have something called Resolution Upscaler, do anyone know how to activate this ? or how to check if it's working ?

if everything is set up correctly, it might be a problem with the tv (defective).

Yes, it was a defective unit so returned it and got another one and this one is fine.

Can someone share some settings they are using. I am trying to find what all this tv can do. If someone could share some info it would be great.

I have a few mkv, avi 3d sbs mkv files on my external hard drive, can I play them directly by plugging in the usb?

Can I surf the internet?

Any general picture settings and 3D settings that will optimize this tv.

it plays mkv from an external hard drive just fine
you can surf the web, but its slower then PC surfing, but its not too bad
post #398 of 2128
Viper thank for your response, I am glad to hear that mkv can be played directly.

I was also wondering about DNLA and how it can be used. I have a macbook 2008 and have xbmc.

My macbook is old and i tried playing a 1080p 3d SBS mkv with VLC player connected to the tv and the video was not smooth. I know its to do with my macbook, so I was wondering if playing directly through the HDD would make this smooth. I will have to test it out tonight.

Hey Sid, I tried playing a sbs 3d file from MacBook connected to tv via hdmi and the 3d was unwatchable. The same file when played via USB was very clear and smooth.

It's a wifi problem, try connect the TV directly (wire) to your router.

Here is what I found when I tested DNLA.

Without installing anything on my computer, I could browse my music and video files from the TV using just DNLA. Though the formats that it could recognize were limited, mkv's were not found. I played an avi using this method and it worked just fine.

I then installed Plex media server on my main computer and configured that. Then using Media-Link on the TV, I was able to browse all of my movies, including mkv's. I've played multiple mkv's such as 1080p, 1080p 3d sbs, 720p, and they all work just fine streaming over my wifi.

I also connected a laptop via hdmi and watched a 720p recording of a show in Windows Media Center and that played back just fine.

Essentially I found that using Plex to be really useful and it provides a nice XBMC type interface so that is what I use on a regular basis.

OK I need as many as replies as possible please I am asking for yalls help with this, please come through for me and show why these boards are good to have around. OK I have scheduled for my LG 55lw6500 to be picked up 2maro and replace it with the LG 55lm6700. My question is should I keep the lw6500 or continue with the pick up and get the lm6700. My TV room is dark all the time so reflection isn't a huge problem cause I did notice the screen is glossy vs the lw model is matte and the lower refresh rate I don't care about either I don't really play video games at all I do however watch movies alot. I don't have any problems with the lw6500 I just want the newer model and the thinner bezel, well what started the look to replace it and to send it back was the sound quit 2xs the other day and i had to turn the TV off and back on to get the sound back and it worried me. Anyways please guys help me out, is the lm6700 a better choice or TV, is the PQ better. I have till 2maro 2pm to cancel the pick up. Thanks in advance for your replies.

Ok couple of problem I am facing and I am sure its user error. When I plugged in my HDD 1TB mac formatted, it is partitioned into 2 named Mac 1 and Mac 2.

Now the tv recognises Mac 2 where I have pic folder etc.
but does not recognize Mac 1 at all.

I downloaded plex from their website and when launching on my mac the application wont open, it bounces a couple of times on the dock and then dissapears.

Any mac guy need your input.

Since some people are asking, here are my calibration settings. I used the built in Picture Wizard II and the AVS HD Calibration disk that you kind find elsewhere in these forums. I was quite frustrated with this TV until I lowered the backlight and contrast. In my opinion this the best way to achieve a high contrast ratio without washing out our oversaturating color.

LM6700
Main Screen:
50 - Backlight
86 - Contrast
58 - Brightness
15 - H Sharp
15 - V Sharp
50 - Color
0 - Tint
- Expert:
Off - Dynamic Contrast
Off - Super Res
Standard - Color Gamut
High - Edge Enhancer
Off - Color Filter
N/A - Expert Pattern
2.2 - Gamma
White Balance
Med - Color Temp
2 Points - Method
Outer - Pattern
High - Points
R.G.B. - 0
Color Management System
R.G.B. (select one)
0 - Saturation
0 - Tint
0 - Luminance
- Picture Option
Off - Noise Red.
Off - MPEG Noise Red.
Low - Black Level
N/A - Real Cinema
N/A - Eye Care
Low - LED Local Dimming

On another note, I have had no trouble playing most media through my wired network from a SMB share on my computer just using the network browser on the TV. I actually can't think of any files that haven't played. I know i have played sbs 3D movies in MKV format that were more than 10GB and they played fine and the 3D worked well. The only problem with this is that I could not fast forward, rewind or resume after stopping. I usually play all files on my PC through my Xbox 360 using Windows Media Center Extender. However, when I try to play the sbs 3D MKV files with my Xbox I get an error saying Media Center is missing something to play these kinds of files. They play fine on my PC, though.

I have a Mac and I faced a few obstacles with HDDs and Plex Media Server. I have resolved all the issues since and it is working great:
1. Check if MAC2 is a NTFS formatted partition. I noticed that if the HDD is MAC OS Journaled or FAT32 then the TV does not support it. The HDD needs to be reformatted to NTFS.
2. You need to install Plex Media Server (not Plex Player) for Mac. Once you open the application, you should be able to see the Plex Icon on your Menu bar. From there you can configure the media type/ and folder locations.

I somewhat got it working. I have MAC2 as FAT32 and MAC1 as OS journaled.

The problem is I cant reformat MAC1 coz FAT32 files have to be under 4gb. I don't know how to format it to NTFS on mac.

I installed Plex media server and although i tried 2 files, I was a avi which played fine the other a MKV 3D SBS 1080p was barely playing getting stuck and the blue circle of loading keeps coming.

So is it becuase its wifi and not hard wired? I can connect the ethernet from the tv to router will this fix the issue?

Let me check my setup and get back to you on the formats n file size issue.

The second issue is likely due to your wifi speed, I was able to play 1080p files just fine over my 802.11n router

I think you've answered your questions pretty well. If you like/want the thinner bezel and chrome stand + had issues with the older TV and do not want to invest time/money to fix it, the I'd say go ahead and get the newer model.

Good Luck! Let us know your opinions.

P.S: I know you are in a hurry for reply, due to your shipment arriving tomorrow. But, you need to be considerate on waiting for reply, all the members have jobs/family, you cannot expect instantaneous replys.

Dude, you're clueless, the files can be streamed from a PC using DLNA or Plex media server, when the TV does it over wifi (and it happens to be far from the router) it freezes so much making it unwatchable.
