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)

Use post numbers, not pages.  People use differing numbers of posts per page.

You still don't get what I'm saying.  People can configure their settings to show 100 posts per page, 40 posts per page, etc.  "Page #x" can show radically different posts between different people.

 

Give a starting post number.

Ever since the last public update i get a 'device disconnected' error once or twice a day while playing content via DLNA (since the plex app is such a POS). once this happens my only recourse to regain access to my wifi and get back to my dlna server is to restart the tv.. anyone else have this problem or any suggestions on how to resolve? ive considered getting a remote to access engineering mode but wasnt sure if that would even resolve.. otherwise i guess my only other option is to rollback a firmware release but then id lose amazon frown.gif

I had similiar issues. I changed the encryption method on my router and the problem went away.. Can't recall to what level, but I know it was related to security issues on the wifi router.

Software update 05.01.15 Downloaded this Morning.

New Premium selection "Shopping" is apparently coming, shows under construction when you pick it.

New Smart apps added, including Al Jazeera Live.

New 3D Clips/shorts added.

I don't see any other changes at this time.
post #3639 of 3922
really hope that all of the wifi disconnects ive been experiencing have been resolved. is there a changelog available? and generally speaking how much longer can we expect that LG will continue to release FW for this model? i assume that this tv and the current models both still receive the same software , is that true?
post #3640 of 3922
There's no hard rules and every company works differently. Garmin for instance even long after no longer selling a GPS model comes out with updates for it.

Generally when newer models are essentially the same as the previous, the previous models benefit from updates and new features. Probably not much longer will LG do anything specifically for the 7600 model, but general updates are probable especially for the apps.
post #3641 of 3922
So I got my finally got my replacement panel to fix the spotlighting issue I had. How did it go? read below....
Was a tough battle to get them to accept it wasn't in fact "in spec".
Took a couple of weeks for the replacement panel to come in so had the TV at home was definitely annoying. Took the TV in to service store yesterday and they replaced the panel same day.
Took it home and with some nervousness, turned on the screen......
To sum up quickly its great! I have some slight clouding around the top right but absolutely no sign of the intense spotlighting I had on the original panel. Now I would say the very minor clouding is "in spec" and I'm very happy. Actually that's only on the transition screens like Input where TV automatically flicks to vivid mode and I didn't notice even any clouding on dark images or black bars on my calibrated images at all. Even able to turn down LED dimming to low or off (had to have it on high to help minimise spotlighting on the old setup), so I'm really happy not only have I been freed from the major light distractions but I also have more flexibility to setup for a better picture, rather than dulling everything to try and make it viewable.
So just wanted to advertise to others with bad problems, definitely fight it, if its bad enough, despite uninformed LG techs....its not normal. Of course I guess the lottery still applies but I feel like I won this time and if you can too its a great TV.
Finally I can relax, amazing how something like that can really ruin things, to the point I didn't want to have friends over, in case they noticed. Now I will be proud to show off the latest 3D movie, dark scenes or not!
post #3642 of 3922
glad it worked out for you. I had good luck with a replacement panel as well.

Thanks Richard. Yes it was your earlier post that helped make me decide to take the plunge, and try and get mine resolved it had been bugging me for some time but always had the fear I could end up with worse.

One thing I did notice was that when I turned on the TV the lighting clouding was actually worse and more noticeable (but still vastly improved on what I had, but now noticed on other corners also). It leads me to conclude that the hanging process on the set really brings out this flaw, which kind of backs some earlier posts where we though flame flexibility may be a cause. I think having it hang on wall overnight and have the frame "settle" has gotten me to them point the screen is at now, hopefully it wont get any worse than that, but wondering how many of the people with "good sets" are running TV on the stand where the support being under the frame may stress it less than the back wall hanging style.
Anyway, just a thought I had, that seems to have been backed up with my latest experience. Still a big improvement on my earlier spotlighting model, and I'm still happy with the replacement.
Not many reports out about the new LA7400 that replaced our LM7600, but one online pro review did mention uniformity issue, so not sure they have managed to eliminate this on even their latest sets.
Will be a great day when the manufacturers manage to knock this on the head with LED sets. Actually that and banding /DSE.
post #3644 of 3922
Don't have the time to read through 120 pages so if this has already been asked / answered I apologize..

Is there a way to disable when you are on a different input and hit the channel button you have to confirm you want to go to the TV input? Dumbest setting ever.. I'm always on my HTPC (HDMI) and when I want to view TV I have to go find the friggin "smart remote" to get to the TV input..

Major PITA..

Thanks
post #3645 of 3922
The tiny percentage of those who use an HTPC and want to switch to the TV input pales to the millions who do not mean to change inputs and have no problem using one more keystroke if they really mean to switch. smile.gif

Thanks for the helpful post.. Does that mean it's not possible to disable?

Wow watched my first movie since the panel replacement last night, with lights out, full dark environment and it was excellent. Something I could not dream of doing....and maintaining sanity with the original panel. So good to watch a movie from start to finish in the dark, with many night scenes and not be totally pulled out of the movie and frustrated with grotesque bright light spots.
Rock on!
Regrading above post, I must admit I do get a little frustrated also with the extra confirmations required, one example I have is running time shift, the number of warnings it gives you is silly. If I have set time to record something on the HDD, and then I watch a bluray, it will interrupt my movie with a large pop up box middle of the screen stating, 1 minute before recording starts...advising to push continue to make it happen or cancel.
If you dig out the remote and push continue it goes away.......until I then have it come up exactly 1 minute later, that recording is beginning and yet another chance to cancel, again big box middle of screen.
If you don't dig out the remote and try just continue to watch your impeeded movie, the boxes disappear in approx 10 seconds and records anyway.
Its really unnecessary, I mean its just recording a show to HDD that you told it you wanted to earlier by setting the damn thing. Worst case it records something that you could always halt if you had drastically changed your mind, or delete....jeez its not something that should keep being prompted and harassing to the user.
The channel changing in above post, I understand if keypad has another function that it should check but when I'm on an input such as bluray, clicking channel should send me back to that TV channel. i.e finish watching bluray and wanting to check channel 2 on TV, I think it should be one button push, not three. It has been on other sets I've owned.
Certainly clicking the actual TV/Radio button should (send you straight to previous channel you were on) but you get the "are you sure" prompt. Have LG been taking software lessons from microsoft?
If I click something incorrect I would accept if I ended in the wrong place, but I don't want to be second guessed on everything I push, when 99% my pushes are what I actually want to happen.

Can someone please tell me if there is a fix for the YouTube app on this TV as to why the Picture when set to "Full" or "Zoom" doesn't display on the entire screen.
When the menu's are on, the video plays on the entire screen. However, when the menu is not visible, the black bars appear on the right or left if the aspect ratio of the movie isn't 16x9 or something to that respect.
I have seen the youtube app change tremendously over the past year but it boggles me how they haven't fixed this ONE issue with it.

Anyone have any idea?

Got the new FW release today. (5.01.15)
post #3650 of 3922
Just updated my firmware.

I see some added features.
post #3651 of 3922
I had Posted that awhile ago also. (05.01.15) I now received 05.01.19 today.

Intel(R) WiDi (on/off)

Collection and Use of Watched List (on/off)

It changed some of my settings, (Balloon on, etc..) but did not change my saved picture settings. It did change my pictures settings to the "Standard mode" so I just changed them back to the saved modes I had.
post #3652 of 3922
Good day. I'm actually new to this TV. I just wanna ask i'm still at 04.20...something.. And the latest update for me when i check at my tv is 05.00.00. My question is. Can I download the system update from a pc and update the tv through Flashdrive?
post #3653 of 3922
Yes you can update via a download. You can get it here for the 55LM7600

http://www.lg.com/us/support-product/lg-55LM7600

There is also a guide on doing it there as well.

Anyone? Or is it the case that it has been accepted as "something that won't possibly be fixed"?
post #3655 of 3922
Because it's so easy to stream Youtube from my Tablet or Smartphone to this TV, I haven't used the app in long time so haven't given it much thought.
post #3656 of 3922
Hi Tampa, firmware v 5.1.19, have you also noticed that every time you turn on your tv the energy saver is enabled? Even though in my settings they are off. This is in expert 1 and the energy settings are greyed out?

Fantasia - Without Me ft. Kelly Rowland, Missy Elliott

Also played HD "The Hummer Project" just fine!

First time after the update the energy savings was indeed turned on. But since turning it off it has stayed off. There have been a couple of anomalies and I'm betting another update will be coming.
post #3659 of 3922
Lol, new update came and is downloaded as I thought it would. Version 5.1.22

It again reset some of my settings, (Same as a few posts above that I mentioned) but again not my expert settings except Just Scan was changed to 16X9, just changed it back and it stays there. It also reset the names I gave to the inputs, simply renamed them and all set. In addition Smart Share settings were turned on after the update, I had them off.

The anomalies I mentioned above seem to be gone including back to a solid connection for the LG smart apps which seemed to get lost from time to time after the last update.

Also whatever "Collection and Use of Watched List (on/off) was is now gone along with Intel(R) WiDi (on/off) gone.

Where did you find version Version 5.1.22
The LG web site still says Software_File(Version_05.01.15).zip.

I currently have 5.01.19 using the update feature on the TV.

Here is the problem after the last up date the panels for smart world and 3D world as well as the apps that were loaded through smart world have disappeared.

The is an app for smart world but when opened I get a authentication error try later. If I try to log into my account I get error unstable network or server try later.

The internet works fine on the TV and so does the premium stuff like Vudu and Crackel.

I have reinitialized the TV from scratch and premium. I have unplugged the TV per customer support and tried again.

The last customer support person set me up for an appointment with a local teck.



Does anyone have any ideas on this.



Thanks Tom
