Big, crisp, clear. A good TV.I.bought this second hand and it didn't come with its original remote so I had to buy a replacement. It was inexpensive and easy to find which is great under the circumstances. My one major complaint is this tv's sound and video must be adjusted from default for good function and that can't be done without the original remote.

Does the 49" LJ5100 have a Digital Optical Audio Out port? Some of the responses here and on other sites say yes, others say no. It looks in most pics of the interface like the port is there, but is it operative? Maybe some years no, later units yes?
