CONNECTING YOUR BLU-RAY PLAYER TO YOUR TV

The first thing we would like to help you do is get your LG Blu-ray player hooked up to your television so you can start enjoying its many features. Even if you've already hooked it up to your television, you may want to double-check that you have everything set up correctly. Just choose the type of connection you will be using below and we'll get you started.

HDMI CONNECTION

If you have an HDTV or HD monitor with an HDMI port, this is the simplest, and best, way to hook up your new LG Blu-ray player.

Connect the HDMI jack on the player to the HDMI jack on an HDMI-compatible TV or monitor. You should be all set!

TIPS

When you connect an HDMI- or DVI-compatible device, make sure of the following:

  • Switch off the HDMI/DVI device and
    this player. Next, switch on the HDMI/DVI
    device and wait about 30 seconds, then
    switch on this player.
  • The connected device's video input
    is set correctly for this unit.
  • The connected device is compatible
    with 720x480p, 1280x720p, 1920x1080i
    or 1920x1080p video input.

Not all HDCP-compatible HDMI or DVI devices will
work with this player. If that is the case:

  • The picture will not be displayed properly with
    a non-HDCP device.
  • This player does not play back and TV screen
    is changed to black screen.
Component Video Connection

COMPONENT VIDEO CONNECTION

Component video connections are the ones that came with your LG Blu-ray player and have the colored input jacks. You should see the corresponding colored input areas somewhere on the side or back of your television.

Connect the COMPONENT VIDEO OUT jacks on the player to the corresponding input jacks on the TV using component video cable. Connect the left and right AUDIO OUT jacks of the player to the audio left and right IN jacks on the TV using the audio cables.

TIPS

Using the COMPONENT VIDEO OUT connection, you can change the resolution.

Video/Audio Connection

VIDEO/AUDIO CONNECTION

If you are using separate video and audio cables, the diagram as shown here should help you get set up.

Connect the VIDEO OUT jacks on the player to the VIDEO IN jack on the TV using a video cable. Connect the left and right AUDIO OUT jacks of the player to the audio left and right IN jacks on the TV using the audio cables.

Wireless Internet connection & certain subscriptions required and sold separately. The Magic Motion Remote does not come equipped with all LG Smart TV enabled TVs and a separate purchase may be required. The LG web browser, on 2011 models, does not support Flash 10 or HTML 5; therefore, access to certain web content may be limited or unavailable. Content and services vary by product and are subject to change without notice.
