Rated 3 out of 5 by from Command narrator voice I don’t know the proper description of this feature, but I need to know how to turn it off. It is startling loud and I don’t need my neighbors to be alerted every time I turn the TV on, off, change channels, etc. Can’t find any help in the manual.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect TV for the bedroom! This was actually a replacement purchase for a different brand of TV that did not work from getting it out of the box. My MISTAKE! Should have purchased the LG to begin with. While setting it up was a little tricky - after everything was done I really couldn't be happier with my purchase. We bought this for my Mother In Laws bedroom and she likes it and is able to use it no problems. She did not need a SmartTV and this fits all the checkboxes. The sound is AMAZING....she only has to have it at mid 20's to hear and on the rest of the TV's in the house she needs them at 40's. The picture is clear and colors are great! Highly recommend this TV - even if you want a SmartTV - just go buy an Amazon FireStick and you'll be set!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly what we wanted, nothing fancy. I wasn't looking for anything fancy like a smart TV, something simple but has the built in tuner so we don't have to connect a converter box. Sound is very good and great picture and a simple remote.

I need to know how long a shelf must be for the base of the LG 32" HDTV to sit safely.  In other words, what is the length, in inches, between the two prongs of the TV's base, or from the outside of one prong of the base to the outside of the other prong?

Asked by: KateRBR
The legs are about 25" apart. ^AC

Can you use mirroring and if you can how

Asked by: Zack 8
Great question, Zack. Since this is not a Smart TV, you cannot mirror or cast any content to the TV directly. To do so, you would need to connect an external device that has this capability. ^RW
