This thing can do a lot of tricks, but I am not sure how useful they are on a daily basis. Anything you guys recommend as a must-use on this TV? I have the original remote that came with it and then another silver remote/game pad thingy that I have not yet touched.
I have Comcast and am debating if I should hook up the comcast remote to the TV or do vice versa with the IR thing that comes with TV. How do you have urs setup?
I just ran the MENU --> SYSTEM --> SETUP with the IR blaster and an AT&T box. This also will set up your audio, and maybe more; if I remember correctly.
I have turned off motion and voice controls, as they were randomly popping up. (MENU --> SMART FEATURES) I don`t use Smart Apps, except for Netflix.
I don`t have the regular remote, as I have an older TV, but after 9 months of trying, I should receive one in January.
If you are a gamer, rename your inputs to either PC (least lag) or Game (slightly more lag, but better picture options and quality) by pressing the SOURCE button on the remote, highlight the HDMI port (don`t press OK), but press the up arrow. This should select TOOLS on the top right of the screen. Click OK, EDIT NAME, and choose PC or GAME from the list. You will have to reset the Picture settings, as only Standard and Entertain modes are available using the PC HDMI setting, so keep your settings handy.
MERRY CHRISTMAS ALL!
