Basically I need some solid settings as a base to start my adjustments and was wondering If someone could help me out or point me in the right direction. After I get the best picture I guess I can mess with the TRUmotion to acheive the Soap Opera Effect

I kind of figured that, But I also think that other settings either help to enhance or reduce the SOE. SO I guess I was looking for some decent Settings to start off with before I start with the adjustments. I know there must be some on...

Alright, just boughy myself a LG 47LM6200.

First off, a couple questions and comments.

1.So if i plug ANYTHING into HDMI 4 on the back, it appears to be lagging more than usual, which I thought was the opposite of the PC port. This is odd.

2. I stream video from my PC to the TV. If I don't have Trumotion on, I get random jaggies on quick movement. Videos also tend to have a minor amount of speed flux, this is even worse with Trumotion on.

3. I cannot turn RealCinema on at all. I'd like to try it as an alternate to Trumotion, but no settings let me turn it on or off. How can I change this?

4. I seem to get the most lag free environment for watching from my PC if I put the INPUT DISPLAY name to NOTEBOOK, and the video mode to EXPERT 1 as well. Only problem is with the INPUT DISPLAY name to PC/NOTEBOOK, I cannot access almost any EXPORT or PICTURE options, including TruMotion or RealCinema.

So while it plays Blurays flawlessly, it seems like no matter what anything I stream to it from my PC has this bit of slowdown at some points. I know it's not my PC as I never saw it on my old plasma.

Also my software is 4.12.23. I'm hoping this isnt the latest even though it doesn't offer me an update when I check. I'd love to solve these problems and make this thing scream, but for playing video off my PC it's just getting on my nerves.

You want the SOE? If so make sure your set is updated by connecting to a WIFI network or through LG's site. This will enable you to use the advanced Tru-Motion option in your "picture" setting menu. It offers numerous option for SOE, from Smooth, Clear and custom(user) which give you full dejudder controls.

Heavytoka - I tried your settings on my set (42"), the whites looked dark almost brown at times. Have any ideas how to fix that? Overall the picture appeared as if I had sunglasses on.

Hello all,

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? confused.gif

Has anyone notice while gaming on LM6200 that sometime the image seems suddenly take on the SOE look and speed up and slow down suddenly? I was playing last night and notice it would start to kinda drop frames. It wasn't slowdown due to game programming thing because I hooked it up to my wife plasma to see if I could replicate, but couldn't get it to happen. It is all game types from third person shooter/FPShooters.
It feels like the screen will blink for a second and the game camera will jump a frame. Could this be the video processor on the set?

I just had to update firmware to use Netflix. Any ideas about what has changed?

Van you specify "few others", i actually got in the Servicemenu EZSETUP, activate LOCAL DIMING and everythin look a bit more darker, but i dont know what other can we play to get the more of our Set.
post #792 of 998
Ok, sorry for all the newbie questions...but I have a relatively gorgeous picture thanks to all the help, so first I'd like to say thank you!

Hopefully last question...is there any semi-official way to determine the correct backlight setting? Or is it just personal preference? I keep going back and forth between a wide swath of values...
post #793 of 998
Anyone know if there's a way to get the LM6200 to auto-turn off? I have it connected to my PC by a DVI-HDMI cable.

It will turn off automatically 15 minutes after I switch off the PC, but I have to manually turn it on with the remote when I turn the PC on.

What I'd like is if it would automatically go into standby mode when I turn off the PC, then turn on when I turn on the PC, just like my other monitors.

Thanks all!!

I'm pretty sure it added the remote feature previously seen only on PS3s http://www.engadget.com/2012/09/25/netflix-ios-android-ps3-second-screen-remote-control/ I might be mistaken but my three-year son discovered it a day after the TV updated software. Coincidence, I think not.

You are right on the money. I can now use netflix app on my iphone to remote control netflix movies streaming on my LG TV. Pretty nifty considering I am not a huge fan of the LG smart remote. Make sure both the iphone and tv are connected to the same network and that you have the latest version of netflix appp. It didn't work on an outdated netflix app which otherwise works fine. Also I don't understand why LG doesn't come out with some kind of description to the firmware upgrade. If there is anything else, please let us know.

I didn't like the magic remote either. In case anyone else wants to order this: AKB73615313 is the model number for an LG standard remote for this TV, which I like a lot better.

Advanced Control

Dynamic Contrast: Off
Dynamic Color: Off
Clear White: Off
Super resolution: On (Anyone know what this setting does?)
Gamma: Medium

Picture Option
Noise Reduction: Off
MPEG Noise Reduction: Off
Black Level: Low

Is it in Gaming mode?

My TV seems to do this in almost all modes, Game seems to minimize it. Watching Netflix streaming from my PC there is speedup and slowdown, even with anything requiring processing turned off. Blurays seem to play perfectly. Personally, I'm not a big fan and I am still constantly tweaking this damn thing to just make it seem normal.
post #799 of 998
Apologies if this has been previously addressed but I couldn't find it in the thread...

Has anyone else encountered an issue where the panel shuts off (goes into some sort of standby) when the input levels get particularly low? This keeps happening during credits and low light levels on movies and is quite annoying. A quick jiggle of the magic remote gets the screen back on, but still... I have checked all the setting I can possibly think might be related (energy saving mode is off)... Any help or guidance would be much appreciated, thanks!

He did laugh though when he called me because the new panel has no clouding at all, so if it's not one issue it's another.

Just wanted to let you know that panel # 2 was installed yesterday. The technician inspected the panel thoroughly to make sure I wouldn't have any light bleed like the last one. The plus is that the light bleed is corrected, but the banding is just as band in the new panel. He saw it, too, and so I'll have to contact LG on Monday and might bet a brand new set out of the deal. We'll see if I'll take it.

Did your brother have the new panel installed yet? If so, how's that one looking?

So the repair guy working on my brothers set came to the conclusion that the banding wasn't a default of the panel and was most likely the boards or some wiring. He didn't feel like fixing it a third time so he had his boss call LG and they are looking at getting him a replacement (most likely the LM6400) since the 47" version of the 6200 is no longer being produced according to the repair guy. I hope you get the same result of getting a replacement, it has to be frustrating spending a bunch of money on a defective tv.

Hi guys. I recently purchased a 3TB external HDD to be my main media player - after I copied the files onto it, the TV won't recognize the HDD. As I searched the web, NTFS file format is not supported on this model.

It's really frustrating that LG didn't even mentioned this on their manual! mad.gif

Is there any workaround for this other than reformatting my HDD to FAT32 and doing it all over again? Would even the latest software update fix this?

Thanks
post #803 of 998
If you decide to reformat the drive as FAT32 remember that FAT32 can only recognise partitions up to 2TB. You would need to create a 2TB partition and then a 1TB partition on your drive (or perhaps 2x1.5TB partitions)

Heads up and and a posible request for help.
My 65LM6200 is in a restart loop since the last software update from 1\3\2013.
Well the truth is after my troubleshooting eliminating connections, CEC, etc. It only restarts itself when connected to the internet (wired or wireless).
I downloaded the latest firmware to do an update via USB but since my TV already has that version it won't let me update. Anyway around this? I renamed the file GP4_ATSC_BB_MP_SU3_mtk5369_A1_RevNo80118_V04.31.31_usb_V2_SECURED.epk versuses GP4_ATSC_BB_MP_SU3_mtk5369_A1_RevNo80118_V04.31.30_usb_V2_SECURED.epk but it still won't recognize it as newer. Any ideas?
LG only has the newest firmware to download or I would try to install the previous version, although I would probably have the same issue of it not letting me install an older version.
What does the brain trust have to say? Thanks.
post #805 of 998
Found out it was a bad combination of Media Link and Plex Media Server (GDM Network Discovery).
So either a Media Link update or a Plex Server update will be the only fix.
Glad it was not my TV and that I figured it out in time to cancel the Tech from coming out.

I hope that works out for him. Contacted LG today and they said they hadn't heard back from my technician yet and can't make a move until they do. When we talked after installing the panel on Friday, he made it sound like he was going to leave some notes about replacing the TV after I mentioned it. He was super nice and customer service has been good, too, but this is taking way too long to fix and I'm getting pretty tired of it. The good news is that if they do decide to replace the TV, it will happen pretty quickly. They'll just box up the old and leave the new.

Just a couple of quick thoughts on the 47LM6200. Got it for what I think is a great price A$695 at JBHiFi in Joondalup W.Australia. Very impressed with the smart features, way better than my 2009 Panasonic VT10, but I guess that is getting on a bit now. The 3D channel app is good to test out 3D content and it's nice to have iView and SBS on demand. A real high point is the 2D to 3D conversion that is very impressive depending on source. Watched Prometheus (720P copy) on my 50" Panasonic VT10 Plasma and then tried it on the 6200 in converted 3D, the movie came to life in this mode and was much more enjoyable, the 3D in cinema mode was very good indeed. Charade (Cary Grant, Audrey Hepburn) was on TV and again the 3D conversion made the movie look great.
Normal HD content looks very good on the 6200 but I think a weakness is its presentation of SD content. Old TV shows look quite bad with lots of jaggies and upscaling artifacts, much more than on the Panasonic plasma. Need to do a bit of tweaking using one of the calibration settings here to see if I can reduce the artifacts. Overall very pleased with the purchase and I am sold on the passive 3D.

simple question, does the lm6200 needs a wifi adapter to connect wireless ?
Edited by warrencr - 1/13/13 at 9:50pm
post #809 of 998
In Australia the 47LM6200 needs a usb adaptor to access Wi-Fi as its not built in, maybe different for different countries versions.
post #810 of 998
Warrencr. The north American version (55") has built in WiFi and an Ethernet port.
