LG 42LN577V - 100Hz

by Katxap / June 10, 2014 5:54 AM PDT

I recently bought my new tv LG 42LN577V in black with 100Hz, 3 HDMI's and a lot of other stuff.
What is bothering me is that every setting is only 60Hz when it says the tv should be 100.
I play a lot of playstation on it so I was looking for a tv with minimum 100hz but then I see it says 60hz when I use any HDMI port.
How is this possible? I've tried looking in my settings but I can't seem to figure it out.
Any help is very much appreciated.

The on screen display shows the input rate. Since the panel always runs at 100, why would it ever show the panel rate?

I'm sorry, I'm not sure what you mean?
What I mean is that it's only 60hz when it's supposed to be 100, and I'm asking howcome and how I change that, since I specifically bought it because of the 100hz.

Sorry, but you'll never see 100.

In reply to: Hi

The panel rate is a fixed 100. So it makes no sense to show that but rather the input rate. As you control that, change it on the video card and see it.

So you're saying I can change this manually but change is on the video card? Where do I find that because I've been looking everywhere

In reply to: so..

I think we covered why you never will see the panel rate. As to video card settings I can't guess what PC, video card and OS you have but here's an example on some random PC.

this has nothing to do with my computer. I only use my playstations on the tv and rarely watches any channels.

Did you understand why the panel rate is never shown?

In reply to: eh

To show that would be a waste of effort. Showing the input rate matters as you have so much to supply to the set. So if you were trying to get your 24p title to be 24p, if the set showed it's panel rate of 120, well what good would that be?

(NT) Oops. Wrong country. In yours, it's 100.
