I have a comcast box. When I turn on the box and picture with the comcast remote, I get the picture but no sound, unless I use the two cables one red and one white from audio out on the back of the box to audio in on the tv back. I thought both picture and sound would come over one hdmi cable. I have had the comcast service person out with no luck. Any ideas?

  • A. You usually have to select HDMI as the audio output.

  • A. Hello Ferd, Sorry to hear that you're having problems with the audio output on your TV. Do you have another HDMI cable to try? When the Comcast Technician come over, did he go into the cable box settings and make sure that the Audio Output was set to default to HDMI? Did you go into your TV's Audio settings to make sure that you set to receive PCM signals or that the speakers are not muted? If all is copacetic, then you might be having an HDMI handshake issue with the cable. Other than making sure that your devices connect to each other easily, copy-protection is the other function for HDMI cables better known as HDCP (High Definition Copyright Protection). HDMI connected devices are required to recognize and communicate with one another and this is referred to as a "handshake" but the HDCP encryption built into the HDMI cable is not being recognized by the other unit so you either do nt get a picture or audio. You could try reversing the sequence in how you turn the components on and see if that helps to resolve the issue. Another trick would be for you to unplug the power to one of the while the HDMI is still connected, then disconnect the HDMI, then plug it back in and turn the component that was turned off. If that does not work, try the reversal of that sequence and turn the other component off. Hope this helps...IFV

We replaced an older 50 inch LG Plasma tv that could be used as a space heater in a small room with a 42 inch LG plasma that runs much cooler and costs a lot less to run. We chose plasma because of the high refresh rate and good viewing angle. My eyes are more sensitive to motion blur at lower refresh rates. The 42 inch doesn't show the finer detail that the 50 inch did but is still excellent. Receiver sensitivity is excellent which we needed because we use an outside antenna. Sound is good but would be better with a sound bar. Would like to be able to fine tune a little better for a more crisp picture. Some people like the smooth look but I like detail. Detail in this tv is good but a little more ability for user tweaking (fine tuning)would be nice. Inputs are enough for us but evaluate your needs before buying. If you have the money (we didn't) go for the 50 inch. We are satisfied with and would recommend this tv.

We've only had the TV for a couple of weeks but we are satisfied with it up to this point. The picture is good and no complaints thus far. We wanted to get another Panasonic Plasma but they have stopped making the plasma in sizes less than 50' so we decided to try LG. My son actually thinks the picture is better than the picture on our Panasonic of same size!

Overall I really enjoy the LG GA6400. The style and quality of the tv build is very nice. Simple items like the placement of the HDMI ports is very well thought out. The magic remote with qwerty keyboard is excellent. Content and Features, Voice Search is amazing, being able to voice search based on keywords, and pulling content from On live TV, Web, You tube sold me. Primetime is my go to app, love the way content is displayed. I don't use 3D much but the 3D content viewed was very good. One disappointment are the apps available. Netflix, Amazon VOD, and crackle are great; however I want HBO GO skype, google hangouts, facebook, and hulu plus hopefully the Jelly Bean update will solve. Overall great value for the price I paid, and I find new features and tricks everyday.

In the manual is says "If a fixed image displays on the TV screen for a long period of time, it will become imprinted and become a permanent disfigurement on the screen. This is "image burn" or "burn-in" and not covered by warranty." Well this tv has a few picture adjustment ratio settings and no matter what one you adjust it to, there is always a little black bar on the bottom of the screen. On our cable box there is a black bar, on blu ray and dvd there are black bars. Usually most tv's offer some type of adjustment on the zoom setting. This tv on the zoom ratio setting will leave a little black bar. We can't use this tv because of this reason and i'm sure this would be so easy to fix if only there was a minutes consideration given to this problem.

The LG Google TV lacks Android Apps

Over all this LG 3D Google TV is good. But I bought this TV for its Google TV feature and I am very disappointed by Google, as there are very few Google Apps, and most of well known apps like FB, Skype, etc. are missing in play store. Adobe Flash contents also doesnt plays :( I cant mirror my Chrome browser from my laptop or Nexus to this TV, i was expecting this feature to be existing in Google product like LG Nexus, LG Google TV. In short if you are buying this LG 3D Google TV because of Google TV then you will be disappointed because there are very few apps available. Expecting Android developers to release some basic apps like FB, Skype, Chrome mirror from laptop to TV.

Basic Plasma is better than LED

After auditioning 2 different LED sets in my home, I chose to go with a plasma display. It is unfortunate that these are no longer being manufactured, but I'm fortunate to have been able to purchase a plasma TV before the stock was completely depleted. There is no motion blur with this plasma TV and the colors are accurate. I would have preferred to have more HDMI inputs on this TV, but I made up for it by connecting the TV to an AVR. I really don't like the fact that this TV only has a digital audio output. Analogue outputs are much more useful, as they can be used with headphones, a legacy audio system, or even the latest and greatest AVR. The digital audio out leaves a noticeable gap between the dialogue from an OTA and the dialogue being output to whatever device is connected via the digital optical audio output. That is my main gripe with this TV. The picture quality is very good for a "bargain" priced TV. The audio quality is ok. I like the built in swivel stand / base. This is a very good looking TV. The menu system is a little basic, but it is easy to follow. This tTV allows the user to get into some very technical picture quality settings, and I really appreciate that this feature is available on this TV. This is , perhaps, one of the most important features to include in a TV set and LG got this part right. I would definitely recommend this TV to a friend.

I have had this TV just over 12 months. This week it went crazy. When you push the input button on remote it shut itself off, when you touch the mute button or the vol on the cable remote it shuts itself off, it stays off for 4 to 5 minutes then comes back on and the mentioned buttons work correctly for about 10 minutes. There may be other buttons that shut it off and I have just not run across them. I expected better from this TV than to go bad two weeks after the warranty ran out. Consumer reports had listed it as excellent. I probably won't buy LG brand again after this
