Then pick "Available premium contents"

I agree that your set has enough problems to warrant returning it, but I'm curious if you still found it too dim with local dimming on High and energy saver off -?

I'm in the same boat. Wish they'd hurry up. I've been using Prime with my laptop hooked up to the tv but the search interface on Amazon's site is just god awful. I am really enjoying the free year of Netflix, however.

Is anyone else using the LG TV Remote iPhone or iPad app instead of or in addition to the Magic Remote? I'm finding it much easier to control the tv with it; my hand always winds up in an awkward and uncomfortable position with the Magic Remote and I like the shortcuts in the app, too.

I am using the LG tv remote app on my iPad and REALLY like it. It works unbelievably well for me. My biggest complaint about the magic remote is that you can only really set it down with the buttons down. Inevitably, my kids bump it causing the arrow to pop up or the dialog box prompting that a feature is only available on another input/change now. With the iPad app working so well, the magic remote went into a drawer!

I spent $25 on the standard remote. I bought it from Sears. It is so much better. I understand the reason for the magic remote.....but I hate it.

Software version 04.31.01 downloaded today. There is now a 3D picture test in the Support menu. It does show off the potential of passive 3D - items show good depth and do come out of the screen some.
I also believe in the last update the on screen volume circle added a red color stripe that increases as you increase volume.

How long does it take before the dev versions get released to the general public? I'm still on 4.20 and I'd like the cool 3D upgrade.

I recently purchased the 55 inch LM7600 and I'm satisfied with most everything about it except for one issue that has been bothering me since I brought it home, which like for many on here has been the flashlighting from the corners. I think after playing with it I found a fix but would like your input.
First, I must say that this is the first flat panel and really big tv that i've owned, I did a lot of research and the TV got a lot of positive reviews with a few negative ones, most of which mentioned this problem. I thought, it's such a small percentage, it couldn't be that big an issue. Also it was cheaper on Amazon (at the time) than the Samsung 55ES7100 I was also looking at. I picked it up from Best Buy as they are matching Amazon's pricing in order to stem the tide of all the business they are losing to Amazon. I set the TV up myself which was fairly easy for such a large unit but then had to go out of town for a few days before I was able to really sit down and play with it.
After coming back I used the calibration settings recommended by this review. http://www.flatpanelshd.com/review.php?subaction=showfull&id=1333359799

I tried your way (the pro settings + your edits) and the picture seems a little washed out to me (duller colors and an overall less bright feeling). Maybe I'm just used to have the picture really bright? I can't tell if the actual quality of got any better just yet, but why keep TruMotion off? In my standard settings I had to ClearPlus and with yours it's off. Not sure if I'm should be seeing a difference.

Sorry if this is a question that has been answered already, but I have no software updates available from the 04.20.18. Does anyone know why there are different versions? Is it regional?

The reason i've had it off is because I experience the soap opera effect while watching movies with it on. I recently changed it to De-Judder 0, and De-Blur 10, which was recommended by someone else on here I believe and that seems to resolve the issue.

Hello everyone - so I found the time to go to Best Buy yesterday.

Not only did they have a set which didn't display any light-bleed but it also had the same amount of play along the top border and in the right and left corners. If you put your finger to them, the panel can be pressed in a little bit.

Well, Dell ended up screwing me over... i was up in the air over the LG LM7600 and the Sony HX750. I ended up going with the 55HX750 on cyber monday and was happy with my decision. That was until the TV got delayed... once, twice, three times? Now dell is trying to tell me that Sony has discontinued production of the HX750 model and they can no longer obtain it for me.

So, i have to cancel my order and decide on another set. At first they told me the only thing they could do for me was offer 10% off another television which is total BS considering what i got the Sony for on Cyber Monday. I paid $1,355 with 3 years of warranty for the Sony, and the rep was already trying to push a more expensive Samsung model on me that (6,000 and 7,000 LED series) he wasn't able to even remotely price match to what i paid on the HX750. He suggested NOT going with the LG and said they are not as good as a Sony or Samsung. I told him i wanted to take a break and do more research online first before making a decision so he is going to call me back in an hour.

I have been going over reviews and various threads all over the net again and i am once again leaning towards the 7600. Although i think the best he will be able to do for me is price match the HX750. MAYBE. And this model just sold for 1,000 to 1,300 all over during the Black Friday frenzy. I would feel like i'm kind of getting shafted if i have to pay more than 1,300 for it. I am not sure what to do in this situation.

I could cancel the order altogether and wait for the new models to come out this next year, but i'm not keen on paying full price for a TV.

I have also read reviews on Amazon claiming the TV has input lag for games... one person said they hooked a laptop up to it and experienced heavy lag, another reviewer complained that they played COD MW3 in 3D and experienced heavy input lag. I wasn't aware of the fact that 3D created lag???

I am a hardcore gamer and that's what a majority of this TV will be used for, so i was pleased to read several people's comments in this thread claiming zero lag. But then i read about lag elsewhere. I'm not sure what to think that this point. Can all the gamers chime in with their experience on 360/PS3? Input lag in general? Online? In 2D vs 3D? Very curious and will help decision on whether to purchase or not.

I have had the 55" for several months. I play XBOX 360 COD online for a bit nearly every night. I play mostly in 2D but have played a few online matches in 3D. I set the AV Mode to "GAME" before playing and have experienced 0 - ZERO perceived lag via the TV/home theater over the entire time of ownership.
post #2145 of 3922
Awesome thank you...! Would still like to hear from a few more people before making a decision.

Also, another one that i was wondering about... does anyone here play Rocksmith on the TV?

Any perceivable lag just playing through HDMI? I know that headphones are supposed to give best experience but i play directly from 360 to TV via HDMI on my current Samsung and if there is any lag at all it is tiny.
post #2146 of 3922
Are you trying to find a TV with 100% good reviews? smile.gif There have been TV's rated as "Best" by some sites, and the same TV mediocre by other sites. Take away the flashlighting issue and the 7600 has some of the best reviews by users. Also, Dell does not have the 7600 series on it's site, so they won't be recommending it, not to mention Dell seems to have a large share of both Proven (Court action) bait and switch and many customer complaints that may not have had an actual court action. Trusting them for any advice on TV brands is not what I would even consider. They will promote whatever they have the most of and or make the most on.
There are gamers here posting, I would take stock in their reviews. (And you are)
All you can do is what you are doing, read reviews both professional and in forums like this, balance them out and make a choice. I was set on a Samsung till I actually saw it in the store. The LG was an obvious better looking picture even after playing with both of them. (Except for blacks)

Alright, they suckered me into it... they gave me enough discounts that it matched the Sony HX750 except $75 of it had to be in the form of a Dell gift card. At least i will be receiving it before i go on vacation at the end of the month. If i get this TV and it has crazy panel problems i am going to freak out. hahah

Not sure what you mean by "all over" but 1300 (actually 1299) was the lowest from a reputed seller (Amazon) that few others (BB, Paul's TV etc) matched. No authorized dealer went a penny below $1299. East Coast TV and All Time TV were marginally below but they are not authorized dealers and I read lot of horror stories (check RR). The first time seller at Amazon who was selling at $1000 was probably a fraud and the price went up there very quickly. I don't think you paid a whole lot and this TV is at least on par, if not better than HX750.

If you bought your tv between October 14 and November 24 under certain conditions and, frankly, I'm not sure what those are, they give you a free year of Netflix.

Here's the info: http://www.lg.com/us/tv-audio-video/netflix

No one asked me to scan and email or fax a copy of my receipt to prove when I bought it, though I did purchase within the promotional window and I guess they could cross-check with the serial number -- if they hadn't made me re-register for LG Apps with a different email address than the one I registered the tv with for reasons they never explained. Also, they had a big problem with their promo page being down when a lot of people were trying to register so I'm not sure they're even bothering to check as they try to clean up the back log.

I keep accidentally hitting mute on it and feel like I'm on the verge of dislocating my wrist sometimes trying to get the arrow in the right place. I love the input button on the app which they illogically left off the Magic remote. My LG DVD/VHS player/recorder remote handles the basics for the TV, but I too find myself using the app either on my phone or ipad 90% of the time. I don't find the Magic remote awful but the app is just so much easier; I keep forgetting to try using the game controller on it to see how/if that works.

I have most of the apps listed except no Amazon and no FunSpot. But I do have Ustream which is not listed. I have a total of 17 premium apps. I also still have the coming soon icon and I'm running 04.31.01

Ah, gotcha. So in my case, I like that effect, so I should switch it back to ClearPlus?

I no longer have the Fun Spot either now that you point that out.

The LG Apps website clearly shows the Amazon app icon:

Hopefully it's widely available soon.

Edit: I already have LM7600 setup in my One and can go to In-Start and EZ Adjust. Found the NSU option in In-Start now, I totally missed it earlier. Thanks.
