post #241 of 348
I was wondering what everyone has their 3D settings at.
I've tried different settings but always go back to the factory setting of 10 and 0 (for the depth)
Seating is at about 11 feet.

post #243 of 348
ps... the tv is the shnizzle....

the cats pjamas. dogs doo dahs.

had it since 20th dec and paid a measly £550 for it with £50 free acetrax and a full 5 year all singing guarentee...

Paid £35 a pair for the 2 sets of goggles though....

smart tv is a big gash as apps n stuff are really rubbish but sky 3d is great and bluray 3d films are mint on it as well as no motion blur like my last tv when watching things like UP.. when the baloons move there seems to be no more lagging..... and dark knight is mint...

was best budget investment ever.
post #244 of 348
also before anyone answers my above 2 questions (if they ever do). i have another one


my sky hd 2tb box does not (thanks sky) output 5.1 digital via hdmi.... my tv has the optical to my home cinema so my ps3 and cinema system is true digital 6.1 but hd channels are not as sky is not connected via optical.... would this work???

Connect my sky box via optical straight to my tv..... then connect my ps3 via optical directly to my home theatre ???? or am i needing to swap cables every time i need 5.1 from each scource???? i have a switch but they are total gash ..... thanks..

post #247 of 348
and does anybody find when watching FTA television the audio over time goes out of sync? and simply changing channel and going back fixes it, so annoying
post #248 of 348
I have an audio syncing problem too . I lessoned the problem by not using HDMI and instead using the components for the video, and an optical digital link for the audio when hooking up to my receiver. Not ideal but the off-sync drove me nuts.
Maybe someone should call the problem in to LG. I called in the jerking netflix picture, and they have fixed that with the latest update after a couple months.
post #249 of 348
cant find any info on the new update 04.10.07 i installed today....

Anyone have at least some info on this update thanks

my sync issues are with the antenna connected directly to tv using the tvs inbuilt tuner, no hdmi or optical cables involved at all frown.gif

There's a test thread somewhere on this forum, found it while googling, but the thread was pretty much dead.
Still, is my tv defective or something? WiFi interference?
post #252 of 348
For sync issues you might want to try the ARC feature. But it requires a receiver /Theater-in-a-Box that supports ARC. Essentially when you connect the cable/sat box to the TV via HDMI (using only HDMI 1 input), you can loop that sound from that HDMI cable, back out to a ARC compatible receiver, via another HDMI cable. You'd use what ever input the ARC is on, on your receiver, to play sound from the cable/sat box. You can't use component out from the sat/cable box, and you can't use the optical out from the TV (that's for when the TV is using it's own tuner). It has to be all HDMI, in and back out, from the TV.

Or you could try occasionally disconnecting your HDMI and/or component cables now and then. I heard that helps. How I have no idea (is there a buffer on the video board?).

Any who, I got my apps going since I got so mad at Verizon they shipped me their top of the line Wireless router and did a complete rerouting of my DSL line. When I went to use a 3rd party router it bricked the firmware in my "always on" DSL modem. I was not happy, but they made me happy so they kept me as a customer.

Biggest disappointment with the apps was the Smart Share feature. Couldn't get my router to "multicast" and the software for it by Nero was rather clunky and essentially failed at two way transmission. However the "Media Link" app using the Plex Media Server, works excellent and only took minutes to set up. I couldn't be happier with it. Colbert, Daily Show, YouTube, CNN, etc etc (essentially many websites that play media but don't need memberships or logins) and my Itunes library all at my finger tips on my TV.

Android app for the cursor works well too. Not bad if you tweak the sensitivity. A good substitute till I spend the money for the Magic remote (if it's even worth it).

Netflix runs well. Buffers quickly (my rerouted DSL line helps with that). Still not getting the best rez, but I was expecting that with my measly DSL line. But good enough for standup comedy, and movies that aren't visually stunning. NetFlix itself has less choices than I remembered from years ago so that's been a bit disappointing. But there's a 1/2 dozen TV shows I've been meaning to watch and am going to from the 1st episode (Breaking Bad, Burn Notice etc etc).

YouTube app is a bit clunky, but if you use an account and save subscriptions and favorites while online (on a pc) it can make viewing easier.

A lot of the apps don't do a heck of a lot, or are geared towards a completely obscure demographic (Arabic TV?). But that seems the case with apps in general whether they be for a phone or TV.

But the TV did connect with the router flawlessly and gets a good solid stream. I hate networking too since I've only ever had a single PC. Something I haven't really avoided, but more something I just never had to do. I'm glad I did, because I remember the days of my friends complaining about DMZ, QOS, Port Forwarding and all that other jazz. I plugged the new Router/modem combo in from Verizon, used the passwords given for the TV and my phone and all is fine. wink.gif.

Hockey season is back (finally) and the set is the ballz for that.
post #253 of 348
if the sync issues arnt fixed by May i'll be going back to a panasonic, because thats when we can upgrade our tv again
post #254 of 348
Lufkin,

I'm still have the same sync issues since I got the tv almost a year ago. In this same thread I said that adjusting the onkyo receiver to 60 for the audio delay fixed it, but not so. I have recently purchased a denon 1913 receiver and still the audio delay exists. I'm going to get a new Panasonic plasma (TC-P60ST60). I shouldnt have to mess with audio delays to make the tv to work.
post #255 of 348
Channel 10 is where the A/V sync issues are most noticeable

The procedure below fixed the issues I was having with A/V Sync

To fix your AUDIO VIDEO Sync try this:

Using your remote click on:
1. Settings
2. Sound
3. AV Sync. turn it ON since it is OFF

4. While you are at it set your SOUND OPTIMIZER to match how the TV is mounted. If WALL MOUNTED set to "Wall Mount Type", if on STAND set to "Stand".

5. Finally power OFF the TV then UNPLUG IT FROM THE WALL to do a hard reset. Wait 60 seconds to turn it back ON to clear old data and re-sync the audio and video signal.

post #256 of 348
How is turning on the AV Sync on the TV going to help if your running the audio through the HDMI output on the receiver? Just curious.....
post #257 of 348
My sync issues were with the TV antenna when directly connected to the TV tuner. I have not had nor have I ever witness any issues with the HDMI signal being out of sync ever.

For me channel 10 was the most obvious on a live feed, and sometimes on other channels when they ran pre-recorded video again through the TV tuner not the HDMI.

Why do you feel that the AV Sync has nothing to do with the HDMI output? That setting controls the microprocessor which in turn controls all the functions relating to video and audio.


One more thing...

What type of HDMI cable are you using? I use high-speed HDMI with Internet, and regardless of what has been said I keep the cable length as short as possible.

Hi,

just bought a 60PM680T and was wandering how to access the Picture Wizard. The option is currently greyed out. I am running on the Antenna as my source.

cheers

Been Seeing this TV quite a bit here in the States on sale. Currently the LG 60PM6700 60in 3D Plasma HDTV (1080p, Netflix, THX) $879.99 Free Shipping. BUT! I keep reading all these reviews that say this TV suffers terribly from "the soap opera effect" and it can't be turned off. I can't stand that. Any owners care to chime in on this claim?

Thanks

KC

I guess it was a problem with the first firmware the TV was originally shipped. But since then the problem has mostly been negated. The TV I got had 4.0x and now later with an update and I only notice it on few network broadcasts. Comedy Central's Daily Show and Colbert Report, and the NBC nightly news. Even then it's only an odd color variation that's slightly distracting. With a simply tweaking of the color down a few notches it's eliminated. And that's if you even remember, most of the time I get used to it in a few minutes and forget there's a difference on those few broadcasts. I'm convinced it's only when action is taped (or broadcast live) in certain studio situations. The vast majority of the other broadcasts are dead on perfect for skin tones. Sports, movies, sitcoms are all very nice.

I passed up purchasing a Panny GT series TV for this set. And I'm glad I did. I got 5 more diagonal inches, and paid less money, and actually prefer the crisper LG panel.

No regrets here, even with the anomalous color "problem", that really isn't one.

Thank you! Does this TV have an equivalent model so I could go and showroom at a store like best buy? Thank you again!

Upgrading to this tv after three years with my Panny TC-PXXS1

question, should I use the break in file for this tv like I did 3 yrs ago? running on vivid/high to burn in the phosphors?

Hi.

I don’t think that you should do any break in rituals. Take a look of this: http://reviews.cnet.com/8301-33199_7-57480003-221/do-i-need-to-break-in-a-new-plasma-tv-morrisons-mailbag/
However, I have noticed that my new set was somehow duller when I bought it two weeks ago. Specially, the contrast was low ant the colors were pail. Now it looks all right.
My previous set was a Sharp 52” LCD, which was honestly very good with excellent image quality, even if it was 5 years old. The reason to change my Sharp was to have 60” set. I must say that I am quite happy with plasma, even if I did not like the idea to go to plasma in first place.

Take care.

So I will be receiving this TV next week. I also have a 55lm7600 which is getting exchanged for light leakage. I will obviously only be keeping one of them. Anyone here come from an LED TV to this plasma? I would be saving a few hundred dollars keeping the plasma but for some reason I do not think the PQ will match up to the lm7600. The picture is simply stunning on the LED.

Would like to know if anyone else was deciding on these two sets or how they felt this picture matched up with mid line LED TVs. I know people swaer by plasma pictures but I can't imagine it being better the the 7600 LED.
post #265 of 348
For Eric3316

IMHO, after using LCD (Sharp) for 5 years, plasma seems to be more natural than LCD or LED.
LED may be appealing in the beginning due to over exaggerated, colorful image, but at the end, plasma may be better, at least for the time being.

BestBuy didn't have the set displayed when I was shopping for it. Nor anything that would be considered its equivalent ( ie. another LG plasma). I had to go to Paul's TV to see it, and I ended up purchasing it there also.

Paul's TV locations: http://www.paulstv.com/all_store_locations.asp

My HP Plasma (yes Hewlett Packard made plasma TVs at one point), had an LG panel. Perhaps I might have been conditioned to the LG's more "crispy" look. But side by side against a more expensive Panny ST series, I still preferred the LG. Thus purchasing it , right then. But seeing it was the ultimate factor, so I know how you feel.

I have a higher end Panny LCD in my bedroom (due to size constraints) and it's nothing compared to my new LG, it barely was up to snuff with my aging HP plasma. Now a new LCD/LED is going to be better, but I still think a plasma superiority is noticeable. It's certainly not negligible.

But it's all in the beholder's eye. My best friend and constant "one upsmanship" peer, loves his LCDs/LEDs. He has quite a few of them (big house many children), and one of them just about the best money can buy. When ever he views any of my plasmas he always says: "it's too dark". To his eye that's how he feels. Many are attracted by the vividness of LCDs due to their high candle output.. I wouldn't doubt if my put my plasma on its vivid setting he'd change his mind.

But the solid truth is plasmas from a technical standpoint are better at nearly every facet of displaying a picture than are LCD/LEDs. But if your eye has been trained to a certain degree (like mine is with sharper panels), you can become bias. Or if you're just naturally drawn to a brighter picture, you'll gravitate towards an LCD/LED.

I look at it this way. With a film like David Lean's "Doctor Zhivago" do I want to see what my eye is attracted to, or do I want an accurate reproduction of what David Lean meant to film. Other than setting up a projector in my house, plasma is the best answer.
post #268 of 348
I wonder if that can be attributed to plasma being a digital display vs lcd being analog hmmm...
post #269 of 348
Another thing I keep reading about is the glare on plasma's. Has anyone seen the glare on the LG LED models. It is basically a mirror so I cannot imagine how this can be any worse. Guessing maybe the plasma picture just can't cut through as much as an LED TV.

Also, I picked up a couple of pairs of the Samsung SSG-5100GB 3d glasses that are $19.99 each. Can someone please let me know if this will work with this TV. I am hoping they do as I do not want to spend more then that on glasses. Interested to test active 3d vs passive 3d in my own home.

Hi.

I bought these: http://www.amazon.com/Samsung-SSG-4100GB-Active-Glasses-Models/dp/B007K9P7H0/ref=pd_sim_e_2/183-5576782-9721703.
They are ok, so I expect SSG-5100GB to be the same.
