New LG 6.00.01 Update
Gear mentioned in this thread:
Almost all other users are reporting better blacks with more even back-lighting, such as much less flashlight glow from the edge of the screen. Which I fully agree with, Blacks and backlighting are in fact better on my XXLM7600
Guy, Please try not to be an alarmist that warns people not to do something when they hadn't yet asked if anyone else has had that problem.
And all I can suggest is clicking the "Initialization of Premium" button under the support menu.
EDIT - Also look out for a setting under the 'OPTION' menu called "Collection of Watching Info"
Turn it off unless you want LG and the NSA knowing whats being watched on your TV / USB drive (if connected to tv) / or your DLNA servers (only repeating what ive read online in quite a few places) Just switch off that setting and wait for another update soon to have that feature removed.
Yes, you're advise is good. My problem is probably due to the fact that I bought my 47LS5700 in the US and use it in Europe. Its probably some new security check or bug that only affects me - v annoying though. Resetting the premium brings the premium icons back until the TV connects to the internet and they then disappear.
Try changing under the OPTION menu, in Smart TV Settings the Country choice if you have it to USA maybe?. I do this because I use the UnoTelly service and it works great on the smart tv for accessing US netflix, Hulu, Pandora, Amazon instant, etc etc. (hope Im allowed to mention that here) :-) 5 bucks a month and I never had problems like with unlblock.us
I went off key there but yah try changing the country and see what happens?
