I've been lurking here ever since getting an LM6200 for a slightly early Xmas gift. Sadly, the thing is driving me bonkers.
I'm only using 2 inputs for HD TV and Blu Ray movies via a matching 3D/BluRay Sony player and A-V receiver.
USING ALL NEW BRAND NAME HDMI 1.4s.
Now, I've got picture color, sharpness, contrast, brightness, back lighting, etc. to very satisfying levels. Static picture quality is simply stunning.
My problems all revolve around motion which is why I thought I bought the 120Hz and Trumotion.
I've read posts here where folks say "it plays blurays flawlessly."
Mine works the best playing blu rays but I constantly have to mess with settings from movie to movie, sometimes within the same movie.
There is no such thing as "set it and forget it" on bluray or TV.
I generally need trumotion on for bluray but different settings of it depending on the movie and have had other parameters related to movement in about all possible settings to try to stay away from image ghosting during fast motion while trying minimize amateur video hour or SOE as you are calling it.
I started out with just automated settings, standard, vivid, cinema, etc. but the lack of tweak-ability has me now on expert so I have access to more parameters and have different expert parameters for the different inputs, TV vs. Bluray.
HD TV movies, TV in general, require trumotion just OFF and no matter how I set other parameters I have very noticeable to horrible ghosting on any parts of the screen that are moving.
Sports are pretty bad, more so with closeup action, and even Jody Foster's hair blowing in the wind in the movie Contact had hair ghosts.
Spent most of last Sunday just getting really anal with it on multiple blurays as well as multiple HD TV movies trying to "get it right" or even to find a happy medium to no avail.
Sadly, I really don't even watch much 3D at all though that could change over time. I got this 3D set because of the absolutely incredible 2D picture it has . . . static picture that is, and the general trend toward 3D across the board with displays. Also, it is why I got the 3D capable A-V equipment awhile back.
That said, though I had problems with motion blur on my nearly 7 year old Sharp Aquos this replaced, it was not as noticeable and there were no parameters to help so it was what it was.
So, is it the 3D capability of this unit that seems to amplify these problems so badly? If so, maybe I would be happier sticking with a 2D model since I do not specifically need 3D?
Or maybe I got a subpar LG display and should just try another one?
Or perhaps another brand?
Or perhaps therapy for the user?
