3D is not that important, I am still deciding if I like it or not but if the TV has this feature I think I should be able to enjoy it. The active 3D just didn't work for my eyes, way too much flicker and crosstalk.

I did notice a bit of haziness at night in the corners, but I havent had a chance to play with it much. The glare is tough, but it wasn't any better on the Sharp or Samsung who's screens were more matte. I agree the fleshtones are a bit pale in HD, I played with the "skin" settings and made it slightly better(-3). I am going to use the WOW disk this weekend to see what I can change. I can say without a doubt, in my opinion this has the best LED picture I have seen at this price point.
where is the skin settings option located?, I can't find it...

can anybody test for input lag? hdtvtest.co.uk claims this tv does 4:4:4 full chorma and 31ms input lag, but i don't really trust them lol .

I thought I would post my impressions on the 65LM6200 for anyone thinking about this set. I did all the research before buying this set and decided it would be the best for me. I have had this set for a week now and have been playing with the settings to get the best looking picture for my eyes. The set does have some flash lighting, on the right side but it is only noticeable on a blank screen. When a picture is showing I can't really tell any problems. The soap opera effect is there but can be adjusted out with the settings and I have found settings that work well with this set in my room.

I haven't seen any problem with IR even on fast moving sports programs.The 3D looks great, still plenty bright enough but the jury is still out on whether it is an improvement or a distraction for me. I am very happy with the picture quality but the screen is extremely mirror like and is a distraction if you cannot control the lighting in your room.

I do most of my TV watching, from Direct TV, on this set and watch some movies on it also, I still watch some TV and most movies in my big room. With all that said, I think this is a great set and would recommend it to anyone looking for a reasonably priced LED set, if they have control of the lighting.

Just purchased the 65" model and was wondering if the following bracket would work:

It should be fine, the mounting pattern is 400x400 on the TV....which is in spec with the mount and the mount holds 175lbs....

Backlight: 60..............adjust to your room lighting.....I sometimes kick to 70-75 when my room is very bright.
Contrast: 95
Brightness: 58
Sharpness: 27
Color: 61
Tint: R7
Color Temp: Warm 5

Advanced Color
Dynamic Contrast: Medium
Dynamic Color: Low
Clear white: Off
Prefered Color: Skin -2,Sky 0, Grass, 0
Super Resolution: On
Gamma: Medium
Color Gamut: Wide

Picture Option
Noise Reduction: Low
MPEG Noise reduction: Low
Black Level: Low
Real Cinema: On
Eye Care: High
Tru Motion: User...DeJudder 2, DeBlur 4......Did kick dejudder to 3 on a couple of very fast action movie scenes
Aspect Ration: 16:9......I did see Just Scan be a bit better when I was in Expert 1 Mode, but it will not allow me to do it in Standard Mode.


I found that using Standard Mode gave me better color saturation than I could get in Expert Mode, not sure why...but right now the picture looks damn good and is way better than my Sony in the other room. Over all I really like the TV, yes there is a glare during the peak sun hours in my room, but I have gotten use to it. Over all I am very happy with this TV, especially considering the other two models I had and returned during my search.

I got real close to this setting on my own. I tried the Picture Wizard in all Viewing modes and the best one I found was using it in Dynamic mode, I used some of those setting to help me here. I will continue to play in the expert settings and see if I can get better, but right now I am pretty satisfied.

One last thing. I found the eye care setting to be very helpful. My wife was complaining of headaches after long period of watching (2-3hrs). I turned Eye Care to high and it helped her, the key was i really didnt notice to big of a change in the picture. Still very Vibrant.

My Wife is complaining of headaches when watching this tv, it doesnt bother me. I thought it was just too bright, but now she is complaing nightly and Ive really brought down the backlight and contrast.....im thinking its the refresh rate.....not sure what to do, the pic is beautiful, but may have to go to plasma....
post #74 of 160
Hi,

I currently have the 47LM6200 3d Smart TV LED from LG and was wondering if anyone else has/is had buffering problems with the video streaming applications on the television set. I don't believe its my internet connection because other devices are working fine with no buffering. One other thing, can anyone recommend a 3d bluray player for this television that doesn't have Smart TV or Internet Apps? Since the tv already comes with this functionality it seems redundant to purchase an item with the same capabilities again. However, I haven't found a 3d bluray player without those features. Anyway, any response is greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

an LM6200 owner.

My wife had similar problems with this TV and hated it when I first set it up. After changing the settings she now really likes it and it doesn't bother her anymore. My settings I ended up with are the following.

Energy Saving: OFF
Picture Mode: Standard
Backlight: 45
Contrast: 91
Brightness: 47
Sharpness: V & H 0
Color: 55
Tint: G6
Color Temp: Warm 5

Advanced Color
Dynamic Contrast: Medium
Dynamic Color: Low
Clear white: Off
Super Resolution: Off
Gamma: 2.2
Color Gamut: Standard

Picture Option
Noise Reduction: Low
MPEG Noise reduction: Low
Black Level: Low
Real Cinema: On
Tru Motion: Off
Aspect Ratio: 16:9


Every set is different, so the settings probably will not offer the same results on your set but keep trying and you should be able to find setting that will give you a great picture and not have it bother your wife.

I'll ask it once again - does anyone know how to delete the sample pictures which comes with this set??

For anyone trying to get into the service menu with an Onkyo remote, try assigning code 11758 to one of the remote's modes. The '+10' key should then bring up the service menu password screen. Key in 0413 as usual and you can then use the LG remote to navigate through the service menu. I did this on an RC-807M.

I tried your setting and a bunch of other and the headache stayed.....I had to return! The picture was the best for LED I had seen, its a shame. I purchsed a Panasonic 65GT50 plasma to be delivered friday! Good Luck to all with the LG!

Purchased the 65" version and disappointed to find out no Pandora app included. Is there any plan to include Pandora in the future?

Thanks
post #80 of 160
I bought te 42" model and I´ve noticed a few things that I'm comfortable with, first, blacks arent very good, I've tried a lot of variation in the settings menu and I havent had luck, I mean the image is great in general but once there´s some black scene, well it´s very evident that it´s not that good(at least compared to my 2 years old sony led tv which I hate for other reasons) and the second problem is with the "de-judder" or true motion, I don´t know but to me it´s worst than my sony, it doesnt matter if I use in "soft" mode or "intense" mode, there´s ALOT of distortion around persons and objects and it doesn´t matter if they are moving slowly or fast it´s quite unpleasent to see the effect in motion, I´ll still going to keep it tough because it´s the has 3d passive system and netflix works great.

Will the Sony RM-VZ220 access the LG service menu?

Why do you think it is giving her headaches? Did you have an LCD or plasma before?

I would imagine the GT50's THX modes would be pretty easy on her eyes.

post #84 of 160
I think it was the 120HZ refresh rate....Not sure. We had the GT50 delivered today, watched TV all night with no complaints. Set it up in Custom Mode, and I can honestly say the flesh tones look way better on the plasma. The LG had a great pic but the flesh tones always looked to pale, on the plasma they look great and it was very easy to dial in quickly.
post #85 of 160
Agree. I love the set but cannot get the flesh tones correct! The colors are too pale and even seem to have a hint of yellow to them...at least on my set. I've tried all kids of adjustments as well. I love the set and am satisfied with all it brings to the table aside from this one item. Hope they can somehow address in an update, but I won't hold my breath. They are sooooo close...darn!

Just curious if any LM6200 owner has the following dilemma and addressed. I have 2 activities defined on my Logitech Harmony 900, 1 for TV and 1 for TV with Audio. The issue is you can not assign the TV speakers independently per input. For example, for the activity TV I select component and want to use the "internal speaker" and for TV with Audio I want to select HDMI1 and external speaker which is my processor/receiver. So I have to select which speaker output manually, either internal or external from the TV menu. Would be nice if I could add that task to the activity on the Logitech Harmony 900 to select which speaker but I have not be able to figure out.

Any suggestions?

Thanks
post #87 of 160
The component input on the back of the set confuses me. I have never seen a component single input. Am I missing something? The RGB 3 cable outputs from my aux device...is there a special componenet cable that now allows a single male input end connector to receiving device? I feel like an idiot but what am I missing?

C
post #88 of 160
There should have been a dongle/break-out cable that shipped with the TV. I was confused at first but LG ships a break-out cable that plugs into the single component input and provides 3 female component inputs.
post #89 of 160
Is there a way to go to the apps dashoboard(where netflix etc.. are) without the magic remote? I ask this because I lost the remote lol. I have universal lg remote and I can control everything except that I can´t get into the apps dashboard, I have the 47lm6200 by the way, thanks in advance for the help.
post #90 of 160
I just bought this set yesterday (47LM6200). I came here looking for some answers to a couple of questions I had. As one user pointed out, I too found the color a bit flat in the Expert 1 picture mode. I was looking for some calibration settings to try out and wondering if the WOW DVD is worth it. I've got a couple of calibration settings to try out now. So, thanks for that. smile.gif

The 2nd question I have though... Which I find strange that I'm not fiding alot about it... Why is this set advertised as 120 Hz when it's really only 60Hz? Does the 120 Hz only work in tru motion turned on?

I haven't noticed alot of motion blur or anything, but like I said, I've had the TV for less than a day. I like it... the features are awesome, but I think I could get some increased picture quality with some proper calibration.
