I just got my new 42LB6300 and been trying to figure out how to set it up for PC. I can't find the input label anywhere. Very noticeable lag when typing or moving in Windows. Where do I change it? Global dimming is also very annoying. I also want to know what this update thing people are constantly talking about, and how I can update and see what version I have?
The WebOS platform is slow as molasses. I wouldn't care as much as I don't use it, but just trying to move around the settings menu with the D-pad is so slow. I should've bought the LB5800 instead that had traditional menus and no funny remote. The viewing angles are typical LG IPS display style. Very easy to notice the IPS glow. I haven't used it extensively yet, but at least it is better than that LG monitor I bought a few months ago with really bad glow. The other thing is how sturdy feeling the TV feels. It feels like one solid aluminum frame. Much better than other TVs I've handled. It's probably some sort of plastic, but it feels hard enough.
Edit: Okay nevermind I found out how to set it in PC mode. It significantly reduced the lag to where my mouse and keyboard actually moved properly on screen. Another issue might be the 2.4ghz signal that the stupid remote gives out. My wireless mouse might also use the same signal, and was freezing up every now and then. I just used an extension cable to move the receiver closer.
In settings menu under Quick, there's HDMI settings. It says HDMI1 on mine which confused me since I thought that was the input you choose and the one underneath, which you can edit the name, I thought was input label. Turns out it doesn't matter what you put on the bottom since the top one that says HDMI1 is the one you change to PC. The icon also changes to something that looks like a PC. Rtings.com said it is 33~ms lag with PC label set and game mode set. Working fine so far.
