post #2551 of 3924
I see there are more people with the rebooting issue now as well. Mine hasn't rebooted in a week. Since I initally reinstalled Plex. I'm not sure if I got the updated Plex but I've restarted it multiple times and can't get the tv to reboot again. I'm not really upset about it, but there is a LG tech coming out tomorow to look at it and possibly replace the power board. Not sure if I want him taking it apart if nothing is actually wrong with it. Any suggestions on what I should do?

That's a tough one. I'm tempted to say "call LG and tell them it was plex and not to bother". But in my weird world of bizarre coincidences, this will be precisely the time that I discover that the problem was actual two problems occurring at the same time and that the LG guy should have been there. Call me crazy, but this is what happens every time I go to the doctor as well. The thing I'm complaining about magically stops for the duration of the appointment. LOL!

Thought I would post an update on this.

(Just reminder, I have a 55LM8600 and use the LG TV Remote app on 2 Android 4.1.2 and 1 iOS 6.01 devices.)

I got a HDTV antenna today and I can confirm the app mirrors the TV's image and sound, but, with a 2-3 seconds delay and a lower image quality.

The TV scanned for channels and found 67!
It was only to test, I'll prob. never use the TV in broadcast TV mode.
My FiOS monthly price is the same whether I get internet only or internet + TV.
For the ones out there where the pricing is different, I would strongly suggest you explore of replacing the set-top box with an HTDV Antenna and save hundreds/ year.

The app ought to support any source on the TV.
Will leave feedback in the App Store and Google Play Store. Please everyone do the same.

When you see him, please ask him how to label the HDMI input manually other than choosing from the labels in the Settings.


For instance, I want to call HDMI 1 "Canon/ GoPro", HDMI 2 "Apple TV" and HDMI 4 "PS3".

LG's Tech Support on the phone says, it can't be done. But my Verizon (Motorola) FiOS set-top box label HDMI 3 automatically: Verizon FiOS. So it is possible.

I'd let him take a look. Just explain to him the situation. It can't hurt to have him look and see if there are any issues going on with the power board. There might be something else going on that hasn't reared it's ugly head yet.

That is exactly the reason I haven't canceled yet. I know it will start again as soon as I cancel. Hope he'll be here soon. I'm just going to explain what was happening and see what he wants to do.

Hi, does anyone know how create tree structure playlist?

For example, if I want to create something like this:
Code:

Documentary
                        |- National Geographic 
                        |- BBC series
                        |- Discovery HD
Cartoon          
                        |- 4 years old
                                                 |- mickey mouse
                                                 |- MLP
                        |- 7 years old
                                                 |- unknown
TV Series
                        |- ABC 
                                                 |- Lost


Also using youtube app to play my playlist, it always plays from the fist video, is there a way for me to choose which one to play?

thanks

Ok. I tried to search this thread. but could not find the information.

Is there a way to check the number of hours of usage on this TV?

Appreciate if someone could answer this again. Thanks

rer420 to the rescue again. Thank you!!
So I see it rounds off to the nearest hours?

is there a guesstimate of how many hours a 7600 should last?

my guess is it will last a few hours past the expiration of your warranty biggrin.gif

I took off the back panel and there were several blown capacitors on the power board. Hope they didn't start using cheap capacitors again on the 7600s. That problem SHUCKS. And if the repair guy gives you the same quality power board, the problem will likely creep up again.

Anyone else getting this problem please comment.

I don't use the wifi. Wired connection. I disconnected all cables during my testing and it was still happening.

Watched Happy Feet Two 3D with the kids. The 3D for this film is only moderately better than the 7600's built-in 2D to 3D in Cinema mode. Can't really get anything jumping off the screen. All the 3D effects are recessed... like looking through a picture window. Wonder if most bluray 3D films are going to be like this. We did also watch Finding Nemo last week, which was very good and the 3D had full range in front of screen and 'into' it. Still the shots that were supposed to be truly in your face were not really right there in front of your face. I tried playing with the 3D settings and though things are definitely jumping off the screen, they aren't really in your face like they can do in theaters.

From what I have read most directors are using the 3D effect in a more subtle way, opting for depth "behind the window", rather than it being in your face. If you want 3D with lots of "in front of the window" effects try Imax Under the Sea, or Legend of the Guardians.

what is youre 3d settings? maybe it is under default?

That might make it worse, depending upon what it thinks it's doing. I'm assuming there is a way to disable *all* network traffic (WiFi/Cat5/carrier pigeon) in the settings, correct?

Tried various 3D settings/modes. Nothing has made me (or my kids) want to duck my head yet, but I've only watched a few 3D films so far. Finding Nemo so far has had the best 3D effects.

Does anyone game in 3d on their LM7600? how do you get tridef to work properly?

The manual says this TV supports 1080p line interlaced 3d mode but when I set it to that I can't get it to focus. It's always a little bit off so that something in the foreground or background is out of focus.

Well it looks like LG must be admitting that there is a problem with latest firmware because the Tech is here, he just changed out my mainboard, and it is forcing an update of the software, however it told him the latest version avail for download is 4.31.30, not the 4.31.31 that screwed up my TV originally. I'll update everyone once all testing is completed.

Ah ha! That's telling! That sounds as if LG has pulled a release. If this is so, I wonder if the LG Televisions in the world will "know" to back-rev.

Well, happy to inform that my 47LM7600 is back to it's perfect operating behavior... all smart features working again and menu's aren't lagging anymore.
post #2573 of 3924
Has anyone been able to get this TV to work properly with a FiOS Remote? I have the Verizon P265 remote and I can get volume controls to work, but the input switching is funky. I can bring up the input selection screen and highlight the inputs when I press the input button, but I have no way to actually select the input I want. Any suggestions?

Same deal with my Time Warner remote.

I figured out how to get it to work with my remote. Instead of stopping on the first code that my TV registered, I kept going and stopped on the second code. Now when I press the input button it cycles between the inputs. Hope this helps you as I spent a lot of time trying to get this to work.
post #2576 of 3924
Did you happen to catch the code? My remote was pre-programmed for another LG TV. The old code worked for On/Off, volume. I'll try to search for some other codes and try them and dig into my remote manual. I don't think mine cycles through codes.

The code I started with was 210, and just worked my way up from there. I didn't go more than 7/8 clicks max, so maybe try anything in the range from 210-218

No, and that's what has made me most unhappy about this whole situation. Not that plex and LG had a compatibility issue, but that once you've entered a wifi network, the only way to prevent the TV from connecting up is either changing the password on the router (ok, I guess you could also block the MAC from the router, but Joe Consumer won't know that for the most part) or resetting the settings on the TV to make it forget EVERYTHING, which is a drag.

Since I did the reset at LGs request, I haven't setup the wifi. If I really need to, I'll connect Ethernet, or for FW updates, I'll just use USB.

The .30 is what's on my TV when it started having the issue. If .31 was official, I never saw it. I told it to look for updates before I disconnected from wifi and it said it didn't find anything new.

FYI, new Plex server update is out, which the Plex Server's updater will find. This is mentioned in the notes...

"Last, but not least, there’s a new Plex Media Server release, which addresses some issues, including a reboot problem with LG TVs. We’ve spoken with LG, and they say a firmware update is coming which will fix the bug, but we have a workaround for you in the meantime. "
