Save yourself some money and go with the 8600. In my humble opinion.

Yes. The 9600 seems outstanding, but only on paper.....Note: I never did see this set in person, but I have seen an awful lot of disappointment and outright anger among folks regarding it and it's ridiculous pricing. Even if it's $2k right now, spend $1.5K and get the 8600.

We're someday going to see a lawsuit regarding this I think. A TV manufacturer is overstepping their bounds with this idea.

Hi

klopez3709

LG replied to me with this

The TV will not recognise the software interface of your phone. You may need to download a third party application to set up media share on the phone.

I have emailed them back asking them why one of if not the most common phone doesnt work with their TV, which phones do work (LG only?) and that I already have the imedia share app but its using DLNA I think, is slow, takes ages to convert Camera Roll videos or pics and is not the same as Screen Share.

Thats my knowledge anyway thus far

See what they say

Anyone else out there?
post #3217 of 3922
I don't have any idea if its the same thing - but I do have mirroring with my IPad and Apple TV - I think I'll. just stick with that.
post #3218 of 3922
I am wondering if its not LGs fault but the iphone, as in Apple and its 'special'software not allowing it without of course going and buying the Apple TV?

Maybe I should try a friends Samsung.

Question

What brand and size HDD to people recommend to use with the LM7600 in its capacity as a DVR to record TV and timeshift?

I was thinking the Black Caviar 1TB

or

Seagate Barracuda 2TB ST2000DM001

though the USer manual says you can go to 2TB, LG support said only 1 TB..

some ideas here

http://www.bestcovery.com/best-hard-drive

http://www.harddrivebenchmark.net/hdd_value.html

Also what about a SSD? the userguide recomends against it but if it survived for 2 years and meant significantly faster timeshift times I would be happy.

One thing I do find annoying and as yet untested on my LG TV is the variance in devices competency to quickly timeshift, an old LG analogue Tuner/HDD was very quick but other I have take noticeably longer (all measured in seconds of course)

Regards

Unless you have found some way to do this, or are not in the U.S., or the latest software now allows, that option is not available on this set in the U.S.
post #3221 of 3922
Well I spoke to a helpful LG tech today and he said the problem with LG TVs and iphones not being recognised as a device is IOS

so its Apples fault. They obviously want me to buy another device (Apple TV) to make it work.

More reason for me to change me phone to say a Samsung which though my tv is LG it will communicate fine via ultra fast Direct Wif Fi Screen share.

I told him how slow imedia share app is, how it needs to convert Camera Roll photos and videos and he confirmed DIRECT SCREEN SHARE plays straight away, so its a definite loss not to have it.

New Firmware this morning: Doesn;t appear to have changed anything though. Still no Amazon VOD and no release notes to check.

For some reason, LG does not list it on the site yet - that I can find.
post #3224 of 3922
Yeah - noticed that to. Was hoping they would have some sort of release note...but the update was available when I turned it on this morning. Forgot to write down the version number...but im pretty sure it was 04.34.xx, just can;t remember the last 2 digits.

Honestly, I don't think it's ever happening. I can only speculate what the hold-up is, but Tampa8 claims his clandestine AIV is smooth, so perhaps it's not the CPU drain issue, but some DRM licensing crap that LG just doesn't want to deal with.

Again though, don't worry about it. The streamers are so incredibly small, and they can tuck behind a TV, and it's /all/ the streamer companies do, and and and and.....

I have had my replacement LM7600 for a week now and am loving it. I have all the missing menu features of my las and no "Real Cinema" issues with flickering film playback. I have near "0" light bleed and with local dimming at low-medium stellar( for edge lit IPS panel) black levels. I will post my settings for the set and after the required 200hrs of use by Geek squad will have pro-calibration. I will post those settings for a night mode since my viewing area is theater dark (with bias light) and 3D.

@ Tampa8

I was reffered to you by the cool tgm1024 with my sync issues on my LM860v combination with LG bluray player, sync issues when watching 3d blurays, hope you could help me.

LM860v ->ARC HMDI ->bluray 3d player. Only when watching 3d blurays, there are sync issues for about -300ms, all other media syncs correct. Now I have enabled AV sync with bypass on the 860v, but to no result. Any idea where this comes from? Both sets are firmware upto date. But when the sound is comming from the TV, also no sync issues.

Thanks for the complement, but wait a minute, now I'm confused. 3D could well by itself cause more lag since it's doing more processing----but your cable configuration I no longer understand. I thought you were saying something else.

Let's go over this from the beginning:

If you are doing this:

BR ----(HDMI)---> LM860V

How is the (lagged) sound getting to the receiver? The ARC can't land on a blu-ray and go anywhere.

If you're are doing this:

BR ---(HDMI)---> Receiver[config'd for ARC] ---(HDMI/ARC)---> TV

Then the TV is supposedly back channeling the sound to the receiver. The BR should not be performing any lag duties (ms delay) at all.

The sound would travel this route:

BR ---> Receiver [straight through the receiver and not its speakers] ---> TV ---> Receiver [and to the speakers]

By the way, your receiver needs to be using the ARC configured HDMI ports so it knows to pass it through on the first pass.

Its lm860v -> LG bluray 2.1 system, connected by HDMI 1.4 in ARC modus. Thats the strangest thing you know, there is no receiver or something in between, just directly connected.

OK. I must be stoopid. LOTS of techie talk here...quite an education...but. Problem for me (besides griping about the lousy remote, and ssllooww response when making selections, and poor web browser support like no full screen mode with YouTube or when watching Classic Arts Showcase feeds) is that now I am trying to see the NJCAA basketball national finals on iHigh.com - my local NWFL State is playing - and the d*mned LG browser screen says I have to download Microsoft Siverlight to view the live video feed. I can watch it OK on my computer's monotor, but on the living room 47 in. LG, it wont work. Of course no instructions..and when I try to click the MS Siverlight link that has popped up, I get option for Linux and Moonlight and a bunch of options (which in the final run get me nowhere, because I get a 'won't support download' whenever I try to click any of them). D*mned crippled smart TV NOT ready for prime time as far as I'm concerned. SORRY I even got the d*mned thing last year. Thought I'd try dumping COX (because I've grown to HATE them in the past ten years i Virginia and they're my local provider here in panhandle Florida now), and try to see if I could live with HULU + (lousy, lousy, lousy - will dump next month when my trial 90 days is over), and Netflix (had then quit, then tried again, then quit (forever)!), VuDu (shows me nothing much), etc. Besides that this LG
(it's an OK TV though) sux as a smart TV...I have developed no confidence in internet TV with it. I will keep hating COX and shelling out all my extra dough to them, I guess.

Enough screed. If any of you smart fellas can help...can you download things to fix what's a VERY poor online browser experience with this LG seriesLM7600 POS? If I click on the install Siverllight button, I get directed to go-mono.com\moonlight - informing me thet moonlight is a MS implementtionof Siverlightfor unix. ??? Is the browser/internet on this LG TV a unix-implemented system? If I click on the install button I get a two way option for Download Moonlight 4 Preview for either Firefox/i586 or Chrome/i586. Whjat browser is running? Is my architecture 32-bit or 64-bit? (I know all this with my PC but what the hell goes on with the LG Smart TV? Any help.

You've got the order backwards from how most people see things. A Blu-Ray SENDS to a TV.

Ok.....ironing this out as best we can before taking the entire thing offline to PM land.

You said "But when the sound is comming from the TV, also no sync issues." So the direct connection doesn't have a sync problem, or does?

Where else would the sound come from? And the ARC doesn't mean anything unless connected to a system (A receiver) that can do something with the sound. There is no audio return back to a Blu-Ray. It couldn't do anything with it if it DID receive it.

I am fairly certain that you cannot run Silverlight on this TV. The browser simply will not support it. I totally understand your issues, but I don't necessarily think that "smart" means being able to view all types of streaming video. It's not a personal computer. It is a TV with advanced functionality and a browser.
Please let everyone know if you do work out the issues with Silverlight.

The new Firmware Version I got notified on this morning is V4.34.01. It is NOT available as of this posting on the LG support site nor is there any info about what it changes/fixes. I'm not installing it until I KNOW what it does.

The current MO is for TV manufacturers to re-invent model #'s every single year. Further, they usually match letters to model years as well to identify certain series. LA is a 2013 invention. LM is from 2012, etc. There are confusing cross-overs, because models become released at extremely odd points in the calendar year: the 7200 for instance didn't show up until november 2012, so things overlap considerably.

To answer your question precisely, the LA7400 is the "new" version (roughly) of the LM7600. I don't imagine that either 7600 or 7200 will be around at all *very* soon, but that's just a guess.

I described how my setup is, again very simple:
LM860v -> HDMI 1.4, ARC enabled-> LG HX522 Bluray 2.1 system
When watching 3d bluray over the external speakers (aka 2.1 bluray system), I get a sync problem
Watching 3d bluray with the internal TV speakers, everything is fine
2d Bluray over the external speakers is fine
Any suggestions? I enabled ARC
have the latest firmware
Enabled AV sync on the Lm860v with bypass

All no good.

I understand now. Here's where I became derailed: The HX522 is a home theatre unit, not a Blu-Ray player but an integrated Blu-Ray & Amp. I cannot find the pdf for the HX522 from a reputable "safe" site, because the only place that recognizes that model are in the Netherlands and I can't find LG (english site) themselves mention it, nor can I find an english version of anything. Nor does Amazon.com sell it.

As my final guess, it's maybe 2 things combined. My guess is that the Blu-Ray system reports that it is, but really isn't configured properly for ARC for that particular HDMI port, perhaps also because of your audio settings. This would cause the Blu-Ray system to disregard the ARC entirely in both 2D and 3D and push the sound directly to the speakers while fooling you into it being the ARC data. My guess is that the 2D actually does have audio lag, but very slight given your settings, and that the 3D is pronounced. I can't guess further than that. (sorry). frown.gif

There are Home Theater sub-forums here. I would absolutely try there. I don't want to waste your time. I'm surprised no one in either the 7600 or 8600 forum have jumped on this. {shrug}

I got this update Yesterday. I have not noticed any changes that I can see. I still saw a bit of a slow down issues on the face offs (not all the time) in the Hockey game last night as well as at certain times when the puck is moving really fast there seems to be a haze that shows up around it. Overall still love the TV though.

I find the picture fantastic on this thing really.

How often do they do the Firmware updates? Is there any benefit to using the Engineer mode for Firmware anymore? Just curious.
post #3239 of 3922
The updates have come quite often. I do not know how many times it will in the future with the new TV's coming out. Some companies like GARMIN have updates years after their product is discontinued, but other companies quickly stop updating unless it's to fix an issue.

Engineering is on 4.50.01. With it i got an update to the Amazon app which is why I posted perhaps it will be released generally soon. ( I also have my TV set to get the Amazon app as most know) Prior to that i was losing the ICON from time to time, now it's always there.
I too find the picture excellent, very happy I bought this TV.

I'm probably missing something, but why is ARC needed to be used in this setup?
