Answer: 
YES, YOU HAVE TO PURCHASE LG USB ADAPTER OR NETGEAR PUSH TO TV. THE LG ADAPTER HELPS TO USE INTERNET DIRECTLY OFF OF THE TV, BUT YOU CAN STREAM INTERNET FROM YOUR PC TO TV VIA APPLE TV OR THE PUSH TO TV "NETGEAR" ADAPTER. HOWEVER I TUNES WILL NOT TRANFER MUSIC CLARITY AT 100% BY USING ANY DEVICE OTHER THAN APPLE TV. YOU CAN BROWSE WITH THE PUSH TO TV OR "LG" USB ADAPTER HOWEVER.

Answer: 
You can plug this TV directly into your cable modem with an Ethernet cable for Internet usage - assuming you have Internet service existing in your home already. The USB adapter is to tap into a wireless signal for internet usage - assuming you have a wireless Internet network in your home.

Software Update?

Since the 42LV5500 is a discontinued model, is LG still providing software updates for it? On the website the current file listed is 4.02.62, and yet the one on my TV is 4.03.02, which is obviously a later update. What is the correct software file I should have?

Answer: 
We appreciate your interest in this television and its available updates. New firmware updates are released to the automatic update before they link to our website. No updates are actually required, unless the TV is not operating properly. If everything appears to work correctly, then your current software version is sufficient.

Answer: 
We appreciate your interest in this television. This is correct; the only audio connection is the OPTICAL Digital Audio Output jack. As such, to connect a Home Theater System, it will need to be compatible with this Optical port.
