ULTRA HD is a new standard in picture quality, and it's the future of high-end video display in the home. The resolution is four times that of Full HD 1080p*, with a whopping 8.3 million pixels to display flawless images, even when viewed up close. Enjoy incredibly vivid colors and picture details as never before. Disclaimer: *4K/UHD content delivery standards still being developed.
One of the secrets behind LG TVs outstanding high-definition performance is the specially designed TV panel. The quality of the panel helps determine the quality of the picture, and our IPS (In-Plane Switching) panel makes any seat the best in the house, with a clearer and more consistent image at wide viewing angles compared to conventional screens.
LG’s Tru-4K Engine is our best resolution enhancer yet, that delivers a better picture quality on LG’s ULTRA HD 4K TVs. Now you can upscale content so closely to native 4K it is nearly impossible to tell the difference, so all of your Blu-rays, DVD’s and TV programs look amazing, even on big screen sizes.
The recently developed HEVC (short for High Efficiency Video Coding) compression format is essential to ULTRA HD/4K content playback. Some next generation content will use this HEVC format and this TV has it built-in HEVC decoder to display the 4K content*.Disclaimer: *4K/UHD content delivery standards still being developed.

The LG UB8500 keeps turning off and on the second I turn the power on. All devices are disconnected from it. I am suspecting a bad power supply. It could be the power cable but it is in there pretty tight. What do you think?
Asked by: CurtisWolf
Hi CurtisWolf. If you have checked to ensure that the power cord is firmly and securely inserted into the socket in the back of the LG 4K UHD Smart LED TV - 49'' Class (48.5'' Diag), Model # 49UB8500 then the issue could be with the power supply as you suspect. The TV will need to be inspected to diagnose the issue. Our Support Representatives at our Customer Support Center, (800) 243-0000 will be happy to assist you in making arrangements to have the TV inspected by an LG Authorized service technician or an LG Authorized Service Center.

Im srry i see i mispelled sum words.. its doesnt have HDR capabilities but under my menu it says do i want it turned on or off? But i cant select any thing.. why? This refereing to the 49ub8500
Asked by: Chico62
We appreciate your interest in this television and its features. This model has not been designed for use with any HDR features or capabilities. It seems likely that this menu setting is being listed from an external device, such as a game system, and is simply being displayed on the TV.

how can I hook to a stereo and still use volume up and down to control sound
Asked by: wdfergu
We appreciate your interest in this television and its features. This model can connect to an external audio system using either an OPTICAL Digital Audio connection or by the AUDIO RETURN CHANNEL (ARC) over the HDMI2 port.
