5.0 out of 5 stars 65LM6200 3D Performance, June 24, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: LG 65LM6200 65-Inch Cinema 3D 1080p 120Hz LED-LCD HDTV with Smart TV and Six Pairs of 3D Glasses (2012 Model) (Electronics)
I've had the 65LM6200 installed here for about a week. Many other reviews describe the features and picture of this HDTV, and all the comparisons you have read concerning the relative merits of plasma displays versus edge lit LED displays do apply in this case. I will only add comments about the set's 3D performance and about using the set with other IR remote controllers, such as the Logitech Harmony.

Passive 3D performance of the 65LM6200 is astounding, particularly with well produced Blu-Ray 3D. The general reaction of anyone who sees 3D on this set will be "Wow!" This is of course passive 3D, which in my case is key to its enjoyment. My entire family wears glasses, and the idea of wearing heavy, dark, and battery powered active 3D glasses perched OVER our ordinary glasses is just preposterous. It wasn't until the advent of passive 3D that requires only lightweight polarized lenses that I even considered investing in a new 3D HDTV. We use lightweight clip-on polarized lenses with this set, and the 3D image is bright and clear, with no flickering or visible left-right crosstalk.

It has been reported that vertical resolution of passive 3D is reduced since the left and right eye images use alternating scan lines resulting in one half resolution, jagged image edges, etc. However, this concern is overblown. You will ordinarily see no reduction in vertical resolution since the eye and brain apparently work together to smooth the image. The only time that I have seen visible scan lines is in the case of bright white lettering (such as closed captions) against a dark background. And even in this case I must get up off the couch and peer at the screen from a distance of 3 feet or less to see the effect.

Regarding remote controls, my home theater is set up using a Logitech Harmony IR remote control. The LG "Magic Remote" that comes with this set is an RF remote control with commands that cannot be imitated by the Harmony. I was concerned that I might have to give up the Harmony remote and go back to using separate controllers for the HDTV, Cable DVR, Blu-Ray player, game console, and other devices. Fortunately, the 65LM6200 still provides the capability to respond to a basic set of IR commands such as power on/off, input selection, audio volume, audio mute, TV channel selection, etc. So it is possible to program a Harmony remote to operate this set as a part of an integrated home theater system for basic television and for Blu-Ray playback. However, you still must use the LG Magic Remote for system setup, picture adjustment, internet connection and use of any of the LG "Smart TV" apps that use on-screen buttons or menus.

Hi,

Could you possibly elaborate on how you were able to switch inputs on the Harmony remote? I am having a very difficult time programming that with mine and would love to know how you did it. The TV is otherwise fantastic!

Thanks in advance for your help!

I am using the Harmony 880, which is an older model with push buttons around the screen rather than the touch screen. I assume the newer models are programmed in the same way.

With the Harmony remote, you set up "Activities" such as Cable TV, DVD, CD, Apple TV, etc. As you go through the process of setting up an activity using the Harmony software, you choose which devices to turn on or off and what input to use for each device. For any activity using the TV, the software will give you a choice of HDMI inputs to use. So you might use HDMI 1 for Cable TV activity, HDMI 2 for DVD activity, HDMI 3 for CD activity, etc. Then when you start an activity with the Harmony remote, the TV will receive the HDMI input that you have specified.

You can also set up customized buttons within each activity. Click "Customize Buttons" in the Harmony software and you will be able to program screen buttons to execute any command that is available on any device. For the TV, you could set up customized buttons to select HDMI1 through HDMI4.

If you are using a home theater audio receiver of some sort, all of the HDMI switching might also be done in the audio receiver box. I use a Yamaha audio receiver that takes multiple HDMI inputs, sends the audio to external speakers, and sends a single video signal to HDMI1 on the TV. So I must send the proper Harmony commands to my audio receiver (and not the TV) in order to switch inputs.
