JacobP,

I know my opinion may not amount to much, but I've dealt with A/V equipment for years and have now perfected my own home theatre.

As for your LG TV, take it back. LG's are sh!t from a quality standpoint and for the money, there are better TV's to be had. You may wanna stay away from Vizio as well. In the simpliest terms, they use whatever components are available to them (whatever is cheaper) at the time. What I mean by that is you could go to Best Buy and buy two (2) same model Vizios and more than likely, they will both have different components.  As for the quote below...





A 1080p LED/LCD TV is fully compatible with a 720p or 1080i signal. So regardless of the transmission by the provider, you should still get a video signal and not just the audio track. Even the tech specs on LG's website confirms this.

Take it back and get you a Sharp Quattron. They cost a little more, but are well worth it picture and quality wise.


Here's a fairly new review of the Sharp Quattron from Gizmodo.

I have a 70 in Vizio downstairs that does everything I want it to and more. As for a home theater setup, that's what I had my projector installed for. Its perfect.
I just bought this tv because it was on sale for an excellent deal and I literally want it to do nothing but connect to an antenna and pick up local channels. I'm not looking for mind blowing quality. I just want the Posted Imageing thing to show me a picture when I hook an OTA antenna up to it.

Take it back. I had that issue and it turned out to be a weird Posted Image-up in the main board. It was also a vizio. Gave that bitch away and got me a Samsung.

I've had no trouble with my Vizio. But after trying to deal with LG's tech support today, this tv is going the hell back to da sto' today.
I may bump it up to a bigger screen anyway.

Not directly related. But I got a sony wifi tv off tigersirect refurb for 400 bucks last year. It was 800 at best buy at the time. Thing has been perfect. I've never owned anything but a sony and never will.

Do you know what the G comes from on LG sets?

Goldstar (One of the worst Tv's ever made)

Vizio rates all the components on their right on the border line. Most of the problems are the capacitors.

Best Buy has a Samsung 51" Plasma TV for $399. I bought 2..... It is  a 720P Tv which is the best for sports anyway.

ESPN, Fox and ABC are all 720P.

I went cheap-ish, that's for sure. I've spent enough money on other tvs and my projector. Just want something around 42" or so that will work.

Tech coming Tuesday. If I do t return it tomorrow
