Using Setup Wizard

Setup Wizard gets you up and running with easy step-by-step instructions right on your screen. All you need is a few minutes and your Magic Remote to get started.

You can use the guide below, consult your manual or follow along with this instructional video to help you get set up properly.

Ready? Simply press OK on the wheel of the remote to initiate Setup Wizard, and follow these easy steps.

Click on the pointer wake-up button on the remote to pair your Magic Remote with your TV. You'll see 'Registering new Magic Remote' and then 'Magic Remote has been registered' when the remote has been successfully paired. Registering your remote.

  1. Select your TV environment. 'HOME' is probably best suited for just about everyone.
  2. Select the proper time zone.
  3. If your TV is a Smart TV, choose how you want to connect to the Internet: through a wired or wireless network.
    • To connect to a wired network with a network cable, simply plug a LAN cable to the back of the TV.
    • To connect to your wireless home network, simply select the name of your network. You'll be asked to enter your password, then click OK to connect to your wireless network.

Now, we're ready to set up your TV service. To start, indicate the appropriate service category...for the majority of owners, it's Option A...having cable, satellite or other TV service with a set-top box. Click next and choose your video input, and then your Line Up Provider based on your ZIP code. Finally, select the manufacturer of you set-top device, and you're done!

Bandwidth Requirements

Although the minimum required bandwidth to use LG Smart TV 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.
