Rated 1 out of 5 by from Video crippled in web browser. Must pay to play. Advertising this thing as having a web browser is very misleading. The web browser does not support video streaming from CBS or FOX. I did not try others. In order to watch CBS, LG tech support told me I would have to have an Amazon account. The only apps the thing appears to support are all pay to play (amazon, netflix, hulu, sling, ...). I suppose I could purchase a Roku anf juggle two controls and have another dangling part. But Roku is already built into the less expensive and per reviews, better in some respects, TCL product. The picture is great. The sound is good. The metal bezel is attractive. But it does NOT have a full web browser... which is why I purchased a "smart TV" with "web browser". It's supposed to be an android device too but it will not run chrome (per LG tech support). So, while it's a very nice TV. It's NOT useful on the internet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from We got our new 55” LG about 2 weeks ago and we live it. My husband and I are pretty much technology illiterate and I was so worried that we would have to pay someone to hook up everything. But we tried it ourselves and it was all so easy. We couldn’t be happier with the color and clarity.

is there a setup that would allow me to connect wireless bluetooth headphones to this tv and listen to various levels of sound on the headphones with the sound turned off on the tv speakers?

Asked by: paho
Yes - Connecting and Using an Audio Device Wirelessly Home > Settings > All Settings > Sound > Sound Out > Bluetooth You can connect wirelessly a Bluetooth audio device or a Bluetooth headset to enjoy your TV’s sound in richer quality and greater convenience. If you have recently connected device that the sound bar supports LG Sound Sync, this feature automatically tries connecting to that device. In some devices, this feature automatically tries connecting to the recently connected device when the TV is turned on. We recommend that you connect an LG audio device that supports LG Sound Sync, using LG TV mode or LG Sound Sync mode on the device. This feature is available on certain models only. Press Device Selection to view the connected devices or any devices that can be connected and connect to any one of them. You can use the TV remote control to adjust the volume of some Bluetooth devices. If the device fails to connect, check the power of the device to connect to and check if the audio device is working properly. Depending on the type of the Bluetooth device, the device may not connect correctly or an abnormal behavior may occur such as unsynchronized video and audio. Sound may stutter or sound quality may be reduced if: > the Bluetooth device is too far from the TV; > there are obstacles between the Bluetooth device and the TV; or > used together with radio equipment such as a microwave oven or wireless LAN. If the Picture Mode is set to Game and Sound Out is set to Bluetooth, the Picture Mode changes to Standard ^AC

Why is it that every time I turn on devices that are plugged into either hdmi inputs 3 or 4 I always get a "no signal"? I would need to unplug and plug back into an empty hdmi slot then device will get detected. Is this is defect with hdmi plug 3 or 4?
