I hear ya on that one. I wonder what happens to all the returned units LG gets back, including damaged units.

I love 60FPS.

The videos I take with my phone, and the 60FPS HDR demo's from LG look tremendous.

It's not the 60ps. It's the way the film was shot.

It looks exactly the same way playing the film at /24 from the regular Blu-ray or /24 from the 3D/Blu-ray -- except that motion jumps less in the /60 presentation. (Clearly the cinematographer was not bothering with the usual tricks of the trade meant to keep rapid motion from looking too jumpy at only 24 frames per second.)

It definitely does not look "filmic", but the /60 on the UHD disc is not responsible for that. It is just a case of (un)artistic intent.

Dull is an understatement. I was shocked that a product with A list talent and a huge budget could look so very, very ordinary.

Are owners of the E6 happy with the included sound bar? Does it adequately meet your needs for moving watching? Or do you find yourself wishing you would of bought a 3rd party sound bar?

The sound bar is ok for watching news or anything where sound doesn't really matter. You'd definitely want to invest in a good sound bar and sub, or better yet a nice receiver and speakers.
Don't' have to spend a ton, start small and add on from time to time.
You will be sorely disappointed if you watch movies with the included sound "bar".

I listened to it a bit until I got ARC working. It is definitely better than the skinny down-firing speakers on my Sony TV but no substitute for a proper 5.1 system. Can't say for sure how it compares to 3rd party sound bars, but I've not been impressed with many of those either unless they came with a wireless sub. But the E6 would be fine as a 2nd/bedroom TV on it's own if you had a primary setup for movie watching.

I like it for most viewing and I have a good sound system. Calibrate it with the remote in Bass mode via the TVs menu and you might be impressed.

Seriously? $1,600 for a soundbar (mounting bracket extra), plus $500 for the sub, and $150 to make the sub wireless (when available)?

And for that $2,250 you get 'simulated' surround by definition because all the speakers are in the front of the room?

Pretty ballsy of Yamaha. Who do they think they are, Bose?

Yeah - how obnoxious? And, Im sure it'd get blown away by a $300 pre-packaged surround system from Wal Mart becuase you can NOT beat 5 properly placed speakers & a sub with some soundbar thingie.

Could use some help...

I've run into an issue with my E6. I'm running sound via HDMI ARC which works fine; however, anytime I go to antenna TV the TV puts itself back on to "internal speaker" for the soundbar. So each time I need to manually switch back to HDMI/ARC sound.

Anyone know what's going on? I didn't seem to have this issue for the first week or so, but it certainly noticed it a couple days ago. Thanks for any info.

Also... I previously asked about passing 5.1 audio via ARC using the service menu, but it seems to have been missed. Is there a setting in the service menu to allow 5.1 audio to pass over ARC instead of just 2.0 stereo?

Thanks.

TK

It's alright... but I have a proper 5.1 setup so I'm not using it, but for "free" stereo it sounded fine to me. I'd say save your money and see what you think in person before spending more.

Even if it is 24 gauge (or smaller), but with really thick insulation to make it seem bigger. .

I haven't accessed the service menu on mine, but as far as I know, the ARC channel supports up to DD 5.1, and if the source is sending that, that's what your AVR should be seeing without you doing anything.

If you have a spare optical cable and an optical input on your sound device, you could try that, see if it sends 5.1 when ARC is only sending stereo.

Unfortunately that's not the case... The TV is only passing stereo to the receiver. From what I've read the TVs are capable of sending more, but LG disabled it. Sounds like its been an issue with previous LG models and only if you're lucky with a service menu setting can it be remedied. It may only affect US owner's though since it might have to do with licensing.


I'd love to be wrong though.

...but on my testing... Optical and ARC are both only passing 2.0 stereo from other devices connected to the TV.

The problem with adding a soundbar to the E6 (god, I hate saying that, because, ...!) is that unless you mount the set, you have a very small area to work with before you block the bottom of the screen and the IR port. The Definitive Technologies W Studio Micro sounds fantastic, but it doesn't have bluetooth (!!) and I could never get the audio to sync properly with the picture. The Bose SoundTouch 300 is on my radar, but at $650/+$650 for the bar and sub, that's a lot of coin just to add some richness to a room.

I've lamented this several times before, but I wish our version of the E6 came with an AUX port that one could just connect a sub to, like the EU version seems to have. Perhaps the E7 will fix this ridiculous oversight.

I finally received and hung my new 65E6P yesterday, so only have 2 days of viewing on at this point. I'm coming from the Panasonic 55 VT50, which was a great TV. Right now I kind of have mixed feelings about the LG. It's good, don't get me wrong, but I expected to be more blown away by it given all the reviews I have read and I just am not. Most of what I have watched has been college basketball and my early view is that my plasma was much better. It was even worse on the WatchESPN app, was supposed to be 1080p, but looked pretty bad. I need to checkout some football to see how that looks, tough to find out of season though.

I did check out some 4k on Netflix (through the TV as I found out the hard way that the Amazon FireTV Stick that I just bought doesn't do 4k) and that looked really good. Even there though...fast moving is noticeably worse that my old TV.

I will have to continue to look at some of the calibration settings to see what I can do, but I expected more for $3k. I'm open to any advice.

What caused me to get the new TV in the first place was two things...the first is that I wanted a larger TV for my living room. The second was that the darkness of the plasma was starting to annoy me and I couldn't seem to tune my way out of it. What I mean is that if I was watching a relatively dark show it was so dark that I could not really see any details. A black suit coat with a black shirt under it was just too dark to tell the difference.

So my new 65 inch E6P is stressing me out a bit. I bought it a week ago. The first one had a small group of pixels acting up, so I did an exchange. The new one has no pixel issues that I can see. But it has a small 1-2 centimeter scratch near one edge. Mostly unnoticeable unless I go looking for it, which I stupidly did with a flashlight in an attempt to make sure all the finger prints and smudges were off it from setup. The more bothersome issue is the screws for the stand went in very stiff and I got one side in 100% good and the other side, one of the screws went it most of the way and the other went in half way and stripped. I can still back it out, so I don't want to force it in any more. Initially, the screen was wobbly because the stand was not pushed on all the way. I fixed it but maybe that caused the screws to tweak or worse yet, messed up the holes in the tv. Hopefully the stand is solidly attached and I didn't damage the screw holes. My wife says it's over engineered and could hold with one screw let alone three solidly in. My last tv moved exactly once in three and a half years, to sell it to a friend. So this one should sit a while. Would anyone else actually be worried about it being stable or am I being too OCD? In the event I do move it off the table it's on and want to replace one or two screws in the bear future, do I need specific ones from LG? Or just eyeball a size at the hardware store? I guess no tv is perfect regardless of how much you pay for it. And yes, I need a drink for my nerves.

hang in there cjminer72

when my 65E6P was delivered and assembled by the Amazon delivery staff, they stripped one of teh screw holes and screw. My stand was wobbly after the delivery guys left.
My good friend help me put the 65E6P on flat on the TV monitor it was seating on and I :

1. took out all of the screws for the base
2. re-seated the screws one by one and tighten
3. the last screw hole and screw was a bit stepped, but i got it to recede by tightening little by little (too much force will strip the screw head)

This leveled the stand as best as it is going to get and it is level now. LG needs to improve on the stand assembly and PARTS!!!!

I did complain to Amazon about this. I hope you get it fixed

Right now I kind of have mixed feelings about the LG. It's good, don't get me wrong, but I expected to be more blown away by it given all the reviews I have read and I just am not. Most of what I have watched has been college basketball and my early view is that my plasma was much better. It was even worse on the WatchESPN app, was supposed to be 1080p, but looked pretty bad. I need to checkout some football to see how that looks, tough to find out of season though.

I did check out some 4k on Netflix (through the TV as I found out the hard way that the Amazon FireTV Stick that I just bought doesn't do 4k) and that looked really good. Even there though...fast moving is noticeably worse that my old TV.

I will have to continue to look at some of the calibration settings to see what I can do, but I expected more for $3k. I'm open to any advice.

What caused me to get the new TV in the first place was two things...the first is that I wanted a larger TV for my living room. The second was that the darkness of the plasma was starting to annoy me and I couldn't seem to tune my way out of it. What I mean is that if I was watching a relatively dark show it was so dark that I could not really see any details. A black suit coat with a black shirt under it was just too dark to tell the difference.
What settings are you using? Let's start there. Are you using cable, sattelite or over the air antenna for your basic content?

Regarding the black crush you see on your old plasma: that's a brightness setting problem. The VT50 series had great blacks so if you aren't seeing detail then it has to be that your brightness setting is too low. Maybe it's not that simple and something else is going on but that's the place I'd start.

Bounce back with your OLED TV setting and let's see if we can help you get it dialed in better. They do require tweaking to get the most out of them.

Well, I solved my E6 switching back to internal speakers issues by disabling ARC and going Optical. I assume it's some odd handshake issue, but even only power cycling the TV would cause the issue.

Is anyone passing 5.1 from other devices connected directly to the E6 to their AVR???
