Installing right now, will update with differences shortly!
** Update **
Deblur is not an option.
Only new obvious feature I have found is the set top box setup for the magic remote. Looks like you can control the set top box with it now.
From my last conversation with the HE Manager, this update was to include updates to the app store (who cares) and some bug fixes to improve the 3D experience.
Looks like that's it. Please post if anyone finds any features I may have missed.
- I really like the fact that when updating the firmware, the user preferences get backed up and restored afterwords. Other brands wipe all the settings out when a software update is performed and you're stuck setting everything up from scratch. +1 LG. Very happy with this set!
****** Another update *******
After exploring the service menu after this update, it appears local dimming can now be activated along with a bunch of other settings
I did take a chance and turn on local dimming menu and support. Changing local dimming menu to 1 and enabling local dimming will add a new menu item named "LED Local Dimming". Low, Medium and High are the options. You can see a difference and so far I'm enjoying a setting of Medium. You can also adjust the audio from PCM to AC3.
So, in conclusion, yes, this is a big update full of features! YAY!
If you have a Harmony Remote, follow the directions I found, cleaned up and attached in order to set up the service menu access. The password is 0413. Do this at your own risk. I offer no warranty and if you make a change you should not, it's your fault. I'm simply sharing a document I pieced together from info found publicly online.
