Hi Guys, I'm seriously considering picking up the GA6400, but I've got a couple questions. Wondering if any of you guys might clear some things up for me.
1) IR Blaster
I am interested in the IR blaster so I can control my other components (DirecTV Genie DVR, Apple TV, Samsung BluRay Player). But is there much of a control delay when relaying the ir signal? I have a harmony remote, so I could control everything either way with one remote, but I'd like to use the included remote for the qwerty on the rear.
Also, since I just got the new DirecTV whole home system, I don't really feel like having GoogleTV's guide and search features overlaid on top of the box's existing UI (since I've heard it's not really a great experience anyway, but I'd welcome your guys' opinions), can I disable that or bypass that feature in some way while still controlling the box with the TV's remote?
2) App Platform
I read a review (cached here since the site is not responding: http://*******/16O1wEW
) that said "It has the standard Smart TV feature set that is included in most of LG's TVs and Google TV as well." Does that mean it has access to the LG Smart TV apps like their other TVs AS WELL AS Google Play store apps? Seems weird.
Anyway, I'm trying to decide between this, the LA6900 and the LA6200. I've heard great things about this year's LG panels.
