Had a conversation with LG today regarding this set. Here is the transcript for most of the conversation. I thought it was interesting that he stated that the set would not run in 240hz unless 3d was turned on.
ME: Is the 7200 line replacing the 6200 line?
LG Rep: I would not say a replacement. I would just say its an addition to the LM series lineup
LG Rep: a top of the line model.
LG Rep: For the LM series
ME: Ok that makes more sense.
ME: So do you know where I can change the refresh rate within the system.
ME: Ive looked around and have been unable to change the refresh rate between 120 and 240..
LG Rep: You cant physically change it
LG Rep: You would have to activate trumotion for that.
ME: Ok so trumotion controls the refresh rate.
ME: I think their are four settings in truemotion.
LG Rep: Yep
ME: Off, clear and clear plus and user.
ME: which ones are at 120 vs 240?
LG Rep: Actually when on it goes up to 120hz
LG Rep: With 3D its 240hz
LG Rep: Under regular usage its 60hz
ME: so it only goes to 240 with 3d?
LG Rep: Yep
LG Rep: That's correct.
ME: Is their any way to tell what the hz is?
LG Rep: Nope. The TV will not say it, but just by the info I am sharing with you here
LG Rep: We learn this from training
LG Rep: but it will not actually state this on the TV itself.
LG Rep: Hopefully all this info helps out though
ME: Yes greatly..
LG Rep: Now, might there be anything else I could do for you today?
ME: Is the ethernet port 100Mb or Gigabit.
LG Rep: The ethernet port supports the connection itself.
ME: will the port sync up with a gigabit switch at 1000mb/s?
ME: It makes a difference for streaming content via DLNA.
LG Rep: Well the required connection speed would be from 3 to 5 mb/s... for it to run internet apps properly. As far as the ethernet port itself... I am verifying though on its capabilities.
ME: Ive tested streaming through this tv on wireless a/n at 70mb/s where it was chopping due to bandwidth.
LG Rep: Its a standard IEEE802.11a/b/g/n so it supports...
ME: Thats the wireless.
ME: the hardwired ethernet port is what I was asking about.
LG Rep: Ok LAN port standards..
LG Rep: I am checking because we don't hav that info handy.
LG Rep: So I am researching here.
ME: Your fine.
LG Rep: Its going to be 100mb/s
LG Rep: Its what I was able to find
LG Rep: Still with me?
ME: ok. thank you.
ME: Does this set come with both the magic remote and regular remote like the 7600.. Mine only came with magic remote.
ME: And which model of regular remote would I need to purchase?
LG Rep: Only comes with magic motion
LG Rep: the standard is purchased separately.
LG Rep: Currently all 2012 smart TVs only come with magic motion remotes
LG Rep: Standard remotes a purchased separately
LG Rep: are*
ME: also back to the 240hz thing.
LG Rep: Same goes for hz
LG Rep: Frequency.
LG Rep: Its the same for the TVs
LG Rep: models with 3D go up to 240hz
LG Rep: Otherwise only up to 120hz with trumotion activation
ME: both the 7600 and 7200 are using scanning backlight vs MEMC for 240hz?
LG Rep: refresh rate
LG Rep: 240hz refresh rate has nothing to do with the backlight.
LG Rep: It comes on only upon activating 3D
ME: To reduce blurring, most 120Hz LCD displays use a system called MEMC (motion estimation and motion compensation) to slip in a new frame between each of the original frames. The end result is one extra frame for every true frame. You'd think, then, that a 240Hz TV would just double this to achieve an even more blur-free picture. Alas, it's a little more complicated than that. The problem is that there are actually two different types of 240Hz, including one which doesn't bill itself as true 240Hz but rather as a "240Hz effect". Here's a breakdown of the two versions and which companies employ them. MEMC (motion estimation-motion compensation): Both Sony and Samsung's 240Hz sets use MEMC to basically double the 120Hz process described above. However, instead of getting one extra frame for each "true" frame, you actually get three extra frames. (See first take of the Sony KDL-46Z5500). Scanning backlight (240Hz effect): LG, Toshiba, and Vizio use what's called "scanning backlight" technology. Such TVs use MEMC once to get to 120Hz, but instead of doubling the interpolation, a backlight flashes on and off very quickly to achieve what Toshiba calls a "240Hz effect". LG, for its part, fails to make that distinction and uses the 240Hz term without qualification to describe its scanning backlight models.
LG Rep: That's Sony and Samsung.
LG Rep: As you see at the end: "LG, for its part, fails to make that distinction and uses the 240Hz term without qualification to describe its scanning backlight models."
LG Rep: Its because it uses 3D to increase refresh rate
LG Rep: But we don't have actual specifications to what technology causes the refresh rate to increase other than the 3D technology requiring the increase to be able to transmit the signal.
ME: Does it have to do with the input signal?
LG Rep: Well yes. The TV will detect if the signal would be 3D and can increase the refresh rate. But then again, the TV has a 2D to 3D feature which you would be able to select it as long as using HDMI 1.4 or high speed, and refresh rate goes up with the 2D to 3D conversion
ME: But the tv will never play 2d content at 240hz regardless of the signal unless you kick it into 3d mode.
LG Rep: Correct
LG Rep: You need to increase the signal from 2D to 3D
LG Rep: For the TV itself to boost up to 240hz. Only when on 3D.
ME: so 3d content from lets say 3d world being streamed would be in 120 or 240hz.
LG Rep: It goes up from 60hz to 240hz when 3D is activated
ME: and when you turn on truemotion with 2d content it goes to 120hz?
LG Rep: Yep
ME: Does LG have any LED tv's that can display 2d content at 240hz?
LG Rep: Nope
LG Rep: I am afraid not
ME: so what rate is the LM9600 which is marketed as a 480hz tv. It still cant do 2d content at anything more then 120hz.
LG Rep: Correct.
ME: Well I appreciate your time..
ME: You have been very helpfull.
