You may need to change some settings on your PC first. Then it should be listed in your input options list.

Ok sweet good to know... was worried for a second haha

Since my problem is a lightbleed issue and affects more than just the outer edges i'm curious to see what part they are sending to fix this...

If the sub part doesnt fix the issue then they go to a full panel replacement?

Does anybody know if I do a factory reset on this TV, will I lose my isf day and night modes. I'm having issues streaming to my TV through wired ethernet and I don't want to lose my calibration.

A bias lighting kit for LCD would not be dependent on what brand of TV.......

Very doubtful a factory reset would help. I would look elsewhere for the problem starting with the router though you didn't say what kind of problems you are having.

The problem I'm having is trying to access my nas drive. It's a western digital mybooklive using Twonky. It works fine with everything else instantly but when I try to use it on the tv it takes really long. Sometimes it just locks the tv up. I can actually beam it to the tv wireless using my phone with no problems either. From what I've tried it seemed to work better on wireless then wired.

It can. They can spray light slightly differently, and with a set that can be mounted as close to the wall as this one, it might make a difference. Further, some models (like many Panasonics) have a clear border all around the device. Depending upon the bias lighting, this can cause a halo "glow". The LM8600 has one on the bottom bezel. BTW, verification: the 7600 doesn't have any all, correct?
post #2649 of 3924
I posted another thread here: http://www.avsforum.com/t/1453550/lg-55lm7600-important-calibration-question

But figured I'd try here as well.

I'm shocked this hasn't come up in any posts yet, but does anyone know how to adjust PQ on apps/streaming content?
As far as I can tell, you can't... which would make all those apps and streaming options useless to me... and might just be grounds for returning the unit. The default setting looks like it's somewhere in the neighborhood of "vivid" with tru motion and all those other silly settings on.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

What kind of files are you playing? I have a Mybook World Edition running twonky (wired connection) and sometimes the TV takes a bit of time to buffer 1080p mvk videos. 720p video play instantly though. There is no good reason why wireless would perform better than wired, is there?

"Terms of Service Agreement" Keeps Popping Up"

I need anyone's help, desperately.

All of a sudden, every single time I turn on the tv (47LM7600) and go to the "tv mode" as opposed to an input, I see the following pop up notification, "Terms of Service has changed to provide better services. To enjoy LG Smart TV services, you are required to agree with new Terms of Service". So, I click on the "OK" option which then launches the "Terms & Condition (Service)" agreement which is 27 pages. Then, I click on the "Agree" choice at the bottom and then the tv goes to the normal screen. But, it's doing this "every" time I turn on the tv. Any advice? I emailed an LG tech who responded stating he never heard of this problem and would look into it. But, I'm doubtful of a quick response.

Thanks,

Steve

I have yet to find any way to adjust Netflix...which is very annoying. I can use my Bluray player to run Netflix and then I can adjust the video setting for that input, but that is a stupid resolution.

Yes, a factory reset will wipe out your custom picture settings.

(Note - I use the regular LG remote not the magic remote, I would guess going to My Apps in the magic remote will do the same thing)

It has been discussed and answered several times. Here is one from a quick search.

I'm streaming mkv files but it's not the playback that is slow. It's the navigation of folders on the tv itself. It takes almost a minute to get from one folder to the next. However out doesn't do it on my ps3 or android phone.

Any I have seen or used can be mounted/manipulated to work with any LCD TV. (As long as they are for the correct size TV) I suppose there is some brand I have not seen that can only be used with certain TV's, but not the ones I know about.

Yes, that's true, but that's not what I'm asking. I'm asking if there's one that people like for this particular model, because the effects can be different.

Is there a setting for this TV to automatically detect a new input? Reason I ask is that I have an Xbox hooked up to a different input than my cable and every time I turn on the Xbox with the TV playing cable it does not switch automatically.

..so I guess I'm out of my league here....a newbie that has a perfectly fine working 2012 model 47LM7600 with no bleed-through issues or connectivity issues or anything. I bought mine from Amazon - delivered in Apr 2012 - and it's always been working just fine. Wireless home network works just fine with either the LG or the Sony BR player, or the bedroom Roku now hooked to an older Vizio. I still really hate the squirrley little remote pointy-thingie remote that came with the LG, but nobody else seems to care. That, or I'm just an old man or there's really nothing to be done about it except learn to keep a steady hand when pointing, and then shake it every once in a while to get it centered again. (Jeez, some little Korean kid engineer should be shot.) And you can't put the thing down and have it stay there...it always falls over on its side! Why did they give it a 3-point stance that is so narrow at the rear and unstable? I think I need to buy a little bean-bag to put under it. Truly a LOUSY design.

Well, I finally got my Skype camera. Got it from some overseas source I picked on eBay. Cost was $119 and I know it was overseas because today I saw there was a foreign transaction charge fee of $1.20 posted to my Mastercard account that seems associated with the $119 by amount and date. Anyway, I finally ordered the thing on 27 Dec 2012, the charge hit on the 28th, and the item arrived about two weeks ago. I bothered to hook it up to the TV and open my Skype account only a few days ago, and it sure was a pleasure to Skype from my living room, sitting on a couch in front of a 47 in TV. I hated to pull out a laptop and then sit it on a table and then try to get enough chairs around to accommodate anyone visiting when we're Skyping with friends and family. The $119 was steep, but then, like the PITA remote, there was no alternative.

Nice informative thread here. Most much smarter than me. It's an education to go through it...sorta like I'm back in university! I'm still looking for a concise explanation of how to get Amazon Prime on my LG. Something about a non-standard firmware update, by going into maintenance menus, but with a different kind of remote? I know information is there somewhere, but 'with all the chaff, it's tuff to get to just the wheat' in such a long thread. I'm looking for somebody to spell it out simply but accurately.

Hey has anyone here tried the update to the iPhone/iPad LG Remote app? Nearly all the reviews mention that the track pad functionality is now gone, but only one person mentioned which tv they are using it with (a PM something) so I'm not sure if the track pad glitch effects us or not and would like to know before updating.

It took me a day or so but I got used to using the remote. What I find works best is if you rest your wrist on something like the armrest of your chair and use very small movements without lifting your wrist off of its resting place. I find I can point accurately and not have to reset the pointer very often doing it this way.

You can adjust the sensitivity of the Magic Remote in the Settings menu.

Anyone with an answer to this? My return period is coming up in a day on this TV and don't want a lemon.

You might like to read this tread on the benefits of bias lighting.
