"I take the mouse to the top edge, it shows a full horizontal band with a remote image/ icon on the right, clicking it then brings up the full bottom horizontal bar with the inputs and settings icons on the left and which controls my Verizon FiOS Motorola set-top box. It can replace the remote. I hate the stiff clicking sound from central button on the Magic Mouse."

The 7600 does exactly this.

Is being able to transmit video to your cell phone/tablet exclusive to the 8600/9600 models?

Everything else you listed i can live without, but i'm curious about the above

I believe it is.

Link the app in the Google Play market.

I didn't know. I hadn't tested the wireless mouse on the 7600 and I don't remember ever seeing it mentioned. It's such a nice feature!

With the remote unpaired, it no longer sends the Home and My Apps as RF commands it will send them as IR commands which a learning remote can learn.

Sorry, but I'm trying to accomplish the same thing--use the input button on my Tivo remote to cycle between LG XXLM7600 inputs without using the LG magic remote. Like you I started by programing the Tivo remote which allows the input screen to come up; however, like you, I couldn't select the desired input once I cycled to it.

It sounds like you were able to get it to work by reverting the magic remote to IR. I'm fine unpairing the magic remote, but what did you send to your learning Tivo remote? I have a Tivo Glo remote, which is one of the learning remotes, but what key sequence did you send from the unpaired magic remote to the Tivo learning remote.

Any help is appreciated. I looked around the forum and the web, but seemed to have missed the solution.

Thanks.

The 7600 does exactly this.

And many/most of the other things he mentioned. I did mention the mouse and keyboard back when it was added to the 7600. The playback to the smartphone it can not do. I guess it's a nice feature, not one I would ever use. (I have a Slingbox for that)
post #2197 of 3922
uh-ho - time to edit my post.
post #2198 of 3922
Could someone please tell me how to custom-label the HDMI ports in the Input List/ menu?

The Verizon FiOS automatically called itself that for HDMI3.

I would like to name my HDMI1 "Others", HDMI2 "Apple TV" and my HDMI4 "PS3" instead of picking from the generic icons/ names avail.

Is it possible?

Aww man, still no Amazon VOD for me. Tampa8, I also have never received the change from Expert Control to ISF Control or the extra settings below Color Managment System. Your 7600 is special. wink.gif

Hey guys, been looking at this TV as a replacement to a GT50 that I'm likely returning (issue with dimness/low contrast in some scenes due to ABL), and was wondering - how does the LM7600 handle glare as compared to the GT50/ST50. I'm not in an overly bright room, but I watch TV with the lights on, and reflection wise, the GT50 handled it pretty well.

Right now, debating between this and the 55HX850, so thanks for any help.
post #2203 of 3922
I don't have the engineering mode/ menu turned on.

So I am on Software 04.20.18 with no other updates found when checking.

LG's web site: 04.02.84 and 04.12.27.

My software version is more recent, correct? And why does the web site lists those two builds? Why not only list the most recent, unless some people may want to downgrade?

Lol... The pics caloyzki posted are what I have. I have to think the Amazon app is coming to everyone..... It does work well.

Also, software version 04.31.21 downloaded today. I do not see any changes.

So is everyone labeling the input as "PC" or "Game" when they use this TV? I'm gonna be receiving my set early next week and i'm a hardcore gamer... very excited :P

I've read that Plasmas half way less lag than LCD (like 15ms Plasma vs 30ms LCD), but if we relabel the source it reduces the 30ms to 0ms or at least kinda close? Are there any official tests that can be done to verify this?

that's not totally true.
Hi guys,
This is my first post and english is not my native language but i want to contribute to the community with a so long desired solution for LG 42/47/55LM6200.
this journey begins with a not so good idea from LG....yes that one "YOU CANNOT PASS DTS" through your TV if you are on america due to licenses issues/fees/etc, etc, etc. so....
Solution Steps
1.- Upgrade your tv to the latest firmware (current 03.21.40 http://www.lg.com/us/support-product/lg-42LM6200 )
2.- Get/obtain a RCA control like this http://www.amazon.com/RCA-RCRN08GR-Device-Universal-Backlit/dp/B003EYV21K.
I believe that second step is the most important because particularly speaking we are not going to use RCA remote control for bringing on the EZ menu only. We're looking for an ADVANCED EZ menu.
3.- When you already have your new remote control use code 10856 for program and notice the most buttons won't be working (so please get your original lg remote control cause will become handy) push down button 2 to bring on the EZ MENU and then push down button 3 to bring the Advanced EZ menu (In-start will be there too) LOOK for NSU Mode OPTION and change it from user to engineer.
Explanation: why do we need NSU Engineering Mode? well quite simple...when your TV is in NSU E-Mode will be connecting to LG alternate servers to download new unreleased firmwares.
4.- Now go to your typical menu and look for new updates. Your tv will show that a new fimware has been found and available for download (firmware 04.82.02) please update your TV as fast as you can...... that's the key.
5.- After upgrade process has finished take back your RCA remote control and go to normal EZ Menu. This time options will be available for modifying and particularly speaking you cannot change country group but you DON'T NEED IT. Just look for AC3 EDID option and change it from PCM to AC3.
6.- Wait almost there….. well actually we are there we have DTS passthrough...but wait THERE'S A BUG. keep reading.
Take this in mind…. your DVR or HT will displayed effectively DTS sound but you won't hear a sound. For some reason (probably a beta firmware) you need to go to menu on your TV and look for sound options and change your optical sound output from automatic to PCM and then go back again to automatic after doing that full DTS 5.1/7.1 track will be detected.
Best regards, JF (rahaziel)

I have a 47LM6200 and followed the instructions. I programmed by Harmony remote to act like a "service remote" and changed the setting under tools 7 to ACS. It still will not pass DTS. I am in engineering mode and have the latest beta software of 04.31.30 that came out today. What am I doing wrong? Do I have to change the country? Thanks!
post #2210 of 3922
Software 04.31.30 downloaded today. I see no changes.

Did you read all the way to the end.... And what are you trying to pass in DTS.

Does anyone else see the horizontal lines while viewing 3D content? Is there a fix?

I followed the steps to the T. If I hook up my cable box via optical to my lg soundbar I get dts. If I try to pass it through the tv via HDMI I only get 2.0. Not sure what I'm doing wrong unless it does not work anymore on the latest software update.

Works as it should for me still. Try toggling again as he points out. Toslink is definitely passing it for me. (Is it a U.S. TV?)

Honestly, it doesn't handle glare terribly well or, at least, hasn't in my case. I've had to move a few lamps around and it's kind of ridiculous trying to watch it during the day in my living room which doesn't get much light but does have three windows. I suppose, I could try moving it around the room to see if I get less glare in any particular place, but it suits the room's aesthetics best where it already is. Basically, with the overhead light on, a badly angled lamp or during normal daylight I can see myself reflected in the screen watching it if the picture has enough dark spaces. I don't know if putting some kind of diffuser on your overhead woud help with this or not, but it is pretty damn reflective.

Is this in comparison to the GT/ST50 plasma or just in general? The GT50 is glossy but I'm having no trouble at all with it glare-wise in my space, so just trying to get an idea of what to expect.

What am I doing wrong? I have the 55LM7600 and it's connected to my surround receiver. I have media box(use it for Pandor as the LG doesn't have a pandora app), Bluray and DVR all connected through my Onkyo receiver, via HDMI, then one HDMI to my TV. I have the HDMI 1 Out to my TV set with ARC active. Everything works as desired until I try to view/listen to content from the TV, such as Netflix. It would appear that the ARC is not working. I am under the understanding that ARC will feed the audio back to my receiver when the source is the TV and not the other HDMI inputs. But it's not working like that. I don't see anything else to set on my receiver. Is there something I need to set on the TV when watching such content? I normally have the TV set to External Speakers as I watch everything through my receiver.

According to the LG website, their TruMotion120 Hz and 240 Hz refresh rates on its 2012 HDTVs are actual refresh rates. According to our tests we found the 120 Hz TruMotion provides a real refresh 60 Hz. We have not tested the higher end models but expect the 240 Hz models to be 120 Hz refresh and the 480Hz a 240 Hz refresh. For our tests and video go to our article here .http://hdguru.com/lg-55lm6700-hdtv-review-when-120-hz-isnt-120-hz-updated/8281/

No, not in comparison; I don't have a plasma and just moved into this house so have no other tv in this room to compare it to. I don't really watch tv during the day, but I imagine if I did that I'd have to get thicker curtains. So, maybe you could check it out at a store and try to put something dark on the display and see if annoys you or not. In my situation, in any case, It just isn't watchable with lights at certain angles and sun. My curtains are very sheer and the windows are really tall though the light is diffused by the front porch on one side and a neighbor's house on the other and the room is on the North side of the house and we haven't had real sunshine since October here before I bought the tv.
