Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome TV So happy with our 49" LG in our sunroom. Once we played around with the settings of brightness, color, etc., we now have the perfect picture. One question, why are they making all the tv's with legs on each end instead of pedestal in middle? We had to have a glass cut to put on top o cabinet yo hold tv.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it I bought my LG tv about a month ago and absolutely love it. It’s in the bedroom so I use the sleep button a lot. Love thatsso easy to set. Unlike my previous set where I had to go through several steps to set it. This one is 1 step, done. We also bought our second washer and dryer set. After selling our previous home with my LGwasher and dryer we just had to have a new set for this home. I could not think of any other brand.

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
