CONNECTING YOUR BLU-RAY PLAYER

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 TO TV

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:

  • Try switching 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.

BANDWIDTH REQUIREMENTS

Although the minimum required bandwidth to use LG Blu-ray Players is 1.5Mbps, it is recommended that at least 3.0Mbps be available (and 5.0 for HD content). Not sure how much bandwidth you have? Your best bet is to check with your Internet service provider (ISP) and request more if you need to increase it.
