Official 2012 LG PM6700 Series Discussion Thread [No Street Price Talk] - Page 11

post #301 of 348
Let me begin by saying I know some people are against sharing settings. Try them if you want, maybe use them as a starting point?

I used the DVE Blu-Ray with color filters and ended up with the following settings:

Contrast = 70
Brightness = 54
H Sharp = 9
V Sharp = 3
Color = 50
Tint = 0

Color Management:
Blue Saturation = 2
Green Saturation = 13
Red Saturation = 3

Dynamic Contrast = Off
Super Resolution = Off
Gamma = High
Color Gamut = Wide
Edge Enhancer = Off

Ive had it on these settings for a few hours now, and the colors look a lot better to me. I will probably do some more tweaking with colors when I get time and post the results if I like them more.

Anyone else run into this:

When I run the Picture tuning program it's just a bunch of assorted pink, white, and orange "sections". It asks "do you have a problem with this screen?" If I answer yes it instructs me to contact customer care. If I say no it doesn't launch into the picture tuning program.

Weird. There's nothing really wrong with the picture. I like it, but I was noodling around one day and decided to run the picture tuning again.

I'll contact them and see what they say.

Is there a way to get BBC iPlayer working on the PM6700 (it has the latest firmware update)?

I live in Canada and I use UnblockUS which allows me to watch BBC with iPlayer installed on my computer which feeds my 50PM6700 with video. I want to use the PM6700 only but I can't use the built-in web browser because it won't update flash to the version compatible with iPlayer and I can't find iPlayer in the LG Apps. I have searched all over the internet for information about how I can get iPlayer for the PM6700 or other model of LG Smart TV but haven't found anything useful. I am wondering if I install the UK model (670T version) firmware if that will, 1. Damage the PM6700; 2. Enable getting iPlayer from LG Apps.

Hello. I'm obviously very new to the forum. I'm in the market for a new TV. I'm a bit of a novice on this stuff. I'm upgrading from a first generation Mitsubishi DLP. Needless to say, pretty much anything will probably be an upgrade. I started out wanting an LED, but the more research I've done, the more I see that Plasma is still the way to go. My lighting and room conditions should be appropriate for Plasma.

Once I decided on a Plasma, I was looking at the 50PM5700. Fry's had it on sale a while back, but couldn't lay my hands on one. I kept shopping around. Fry's put the new 60PN5700 on sale for $699 during their anniversary sale. There's a dearth of information and reviews on it. While it didn't have as many features, the deal was too good to pass up. I bought the TV Thursday (last day of the sale), but now Fry's has the 60PM6700 for just $200 more.

I haven't even unboxed the TV I bought. I'm seriously considering taking it back for the 60PM6700. I'm considering this primarily for the 3D, which is absent from the TV I purchased. I don't have much use for Smart TV features. Does anyone know if LG has made any technological strides from 2012 to 2013 that would significantly differentiate the two? Is the 3D feature on this TV good enough to warrant the extra money? I plan on this TV lasting me a while and I don't want to regret not getting 3D down the road. Are there still sync issues with the PM6700s? Any insight would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

You may have some luck by changing your DNS servers on your router. many of us in Canada do this to fool Netflix as the US version has much greater variety then what we get here in Canada. It would only take you 5 minutes on Google to read up on how to do this.

I'm looking at replacing my 8 years old 43" Pioneer Plasma and is considering buying the 60PM6700. Before I pull the trigger to make the purchase, I've a question hopefully any of the existing owner of this plasma can help me. The wall cut out in my living room which I want to put the tv is about 55". According to the 60PM6700 specs, the width is 54.6". Can someone please confirm if the actual size is according to the specs? Just want to make sure that it will fit in....thanks....
post #307 of 348
I just bought this tv & it is exactly 54.6.

From the reviews I searched it appears the only difference is the lack of features. 3d, Smart and probably a few others like amount of inputs and so on.....

This is my first plasma. Any thoughts on the reliability of LG & plasma TV's? I was thinking about buying a SquareTrade ext warranty since they are pretty cheap.
post #310 of 348
I have had mine for over a year and no problems yet. I did indeed purchase a square trade warranty. I also love the television - great picture and for the price cannot be beat. In fact my son ended up buying the same television because he liked it so much.

I subscribe to UnblockUS which uses 3 DNS numbers that I've put into my router and enables me to get BBC, HULU, PBS and other geographically restricted content sources. I want to be able to use the U.K. iPlayer App that people in the U.K. can get for their LG smart TVs such as the PM670T which is the U.K. model of the PM6700 North American Model. Today, the 50PM6700 came up with a firmware update available which is the U.K. version and I authorized installation which continued and the TV stated it had updated but when I turned it off and back on the same firmware was still installed that was there before the supposed update. I would like to get the U.K. firmware to load into the TV via USB.

3? Usually its only primary and secondary.

Sorry for mis-reading your post and answering a question you didn't ask.

Yes, I was surprised there's 3 DNS numbers too.

I am so pleased with my 50PM6700 that I just bought a 60PM6700 too. I got an incredible deal for a supposed refurb, $800 including taxes, a magic remote control and 4 pair of Samsung SSG-4100GB 3D glasses which work perfectly. The only problem is the standard remote is for a 2D TV because they couldn't find the 3D remote but have promised to get one for me. The 60PM6700 has no defects and zero hours on it (probably reset by LG service dept.) The cost for both HDTVs I bought, 50PM6700 and 60PM6700, is the same for one Panasonic Viera 50ST60 which I was going to buy before I saw the 50PM6700 and couldn't resist it for the price.

post #316 of 348

post #317 of 348
Have not noticed anything updated from the new software update.
post #318 of 348
I'll keep an eye out for a changelog
post #319 of 348
I don't know if this is a change in the new firmware but, in the setup, I was able to change the location country which enabled access to the specified country's apps. There is an "Other" country setting but it didn't enable the UK/GB apps which I want to access to get BBC iPlayer.

I just got my firmware update yesterday, I hestiated to download it until I refered to this thread. So, foar it sounds like no one has had any issues with it?

On a different note, the discussions on fooling Netflix into thinking the tv is an american version, in order to get more variety in programs has caught my interest. Sounds like other Canadians have done this with no issues? All I have to do is a search on the net for DNS numbers, wait a minute...I reread the post and the change is done to the router not the tv? Corect? Can anyone supply a link or a process to do that with a Telus router?

I read an article comparing various DNS services which enable access to U.S. Netflix that favoured unblock-us.com because it enables access to the most Netflix servers from various countries.

You may not need a U.S. Netflix account to switch regions according to this:
http://support.unblock-us.com/customer/portal/articles/1003586-the-netflix-region-switcher---update-

I suppose you can use the free trial to find out but, if you need a U.S. Netflix account, here's how to sign up for it:
http://support.unblock-us.com/customer/portal/articles/291505-do-i-need-a-us-netflix-account-how-do-i-set-it-up-

You don't have to set up the router, you can individually configure each computer so that each one can independently be set to a particular country.

New SW Update adds Amazon Prime! It works great once you register the TV to your account.
post #323 of 348
I looked at the specs for the PM670T, the European/UK model, which has a DVR function that enables recording on a USB hard drive or flash drive. Does the PM6700 have this ability?

I am also interested in connecting my computer to the PM6700 serial port to use a serial terminal program to send the service codes to it. Has anyone done this and, if you have, how did you do it?

Am i really the only one that thinks that the 3d is really ****** on this one?
The crosstalk is unbearable.

I could be mistaken, but I don't recall seeing those sharpness bars in the canned picture setup routine before. Picture Wizard I think its called. I was going through things looking for something the update did :-)

Hi folks, I have a 60PM6900 , but I´m facing some "ghosting" issues with my xbox (like my LED TV mad.gif ). For example in sports games Like Forza Horizion if I keep the video image set as GAME the image has a lot of gosting efects when I move fast the car for left/right.. to solve that I need set the TRUMOTION . But using trumotion on games is expected input lag . My xbox is conected in my tv using a HDMI port and Monster Cable (M2000) and the tv is on last firmware provided by LG here in Brazil.

Please could you share with me your game experiencie based on Sports games like Forza, Fifa ,etc ? Thank you in advance !!
post #327 of 348
I bought one and using this tv for 100 hours ... But I´m not a good calibration for games. To me the motion blur is very high if a leave the image mode set as GAME . Please any recomendation to GAME use ?
post #328 of 348
not a tv expert, but what is the best way to reduce input lag whiile gaming?

i swear im always behind because of this tv being so big. am I wrong to set it on gaming mode and leave everything else the same?

I keep my settings on GAME mode and I never had issues with lag, but only with 30fps games with motion blur... But you can try naming the HDMI input to " PC " to try reduce a little bit more than game ..

Cheers
