What People Are Saying

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome picture! I received this 49" LG TV as a bonus when I purchased an LG6 cell phone when they first came out. Just got it installed in my home in the country. No Cable/Dish Network avail. Just a little "rabbit ears" setup but we are able to get all local channels with perfect picture!!!! I have a 40" LG here at my business and it is on Att U-Verse TV and it also has perfect pictures. I'm really happy with both of them!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from more than sharper than I expected After owning a LG microwave with a toaster built in for over 10 years and the toaster finally gave out but the microwave is still going strong. The toaster and microwave are used every day. I knew LG was a name I could trust. Price is really what attracted me to the TV boy was I surprise. I was never expecting the TV to be so excellent

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great features and Picture Quality I have had my LGtv for a little over 2 months now and I am absolutely thrilled at my choice to purchase it. Not only does it have great features, but it has just the right picture quality and it has all the connecting ports that my family and I need to do the things we enjoy doing on a daily basis [watching tv, playing our gaming systems, projecting from our laptops and smartphones to the tv screen, etc.,.]. Overall, I am very very pleased with the product.

My HDMI for my xfinity cable box isn’t connecting. It’s showing no signal. When I switched ports with my Apple TV it appears that the port is working fine. I have also tried switching HDMI cables. Any suggestions on how to resolve the issue? 

Asked by: Ains
Hello Ains, you may need to request a new box from Comcast if you have confirmed the port works fine. ^AC
