Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good TV, minor problems I do like my new LG, but the volume level is a little low, even at full volume, it's not that loud.

hi. i don't see that there are any software updates for my 32LJ500B as of today. am i reading this correctly ? i don't see anything at all on the Downloads page for doing a manual update? thanks.

Asked by: rverhoeve
Software updates for TVs are done on a regional basis and they are not released that often, so if you have checked the support page for the LG HD 720p LED TV - 32" Class (31.5" Diag), Model # 32LJ500B on the Canadian site for software updates and there aren't any recent showings, it means that there haven't been any recent software updates that have been released for this model. It is advised that you set your TV to receive updates automatically so that should any be available, your TV will automatically update. If you need further assistance with this, please contact the Support Center in Canada, https://www.lg.com/ca_en. You will find their contact information on their site...^IFV

hi. does this TV support HDMI CEC ? i have a Google Chromecast, and a Google Home, but i am not finding that i can tell the TV to 'turn on'. i think it is because this TV does NOT support HDMI CEC ? thanks.

Asked by: rverhoeve
TV manufacturers package HDMI CEC under different names, and LG calls it Simplink. Regrettably, the HDMI ports on the LG HD 720p LED TV - 32" Class (31.5" Diag), Model # 32LJ500B do not support HDMI CEC...^IFV

I purchased the 32LJ500B and really like the TV but the audio is not sufficent for a large room and it does not have any output connections for a soundbar. Can I use the RCA ports with a splitter to connect to a 3.5mm Jack? I will have to return if not.

Asked by: PJay
Hello, this TV only has inputs so your audio would need to be taken from your source to your sound bar. ^AC
