Not sure of the details but I imagine it's for new customers.


Update:

Just found some info and it's for new dish customers.

It's showing zero online. Did they tell you 45 in store?

I tried going down today and picking up one of these and they told me they were sold out and even sold the floor model. I then ordered one online and they sent an email back saying sorry no more.

Okay, now that I've had the TV for a couple days, I have a couple complaints.


1) the sound sucks. It seems like LG is wanting everyone to buy their "sound bar"

2) This TV only displays closed captioning on Live TV and on composite inputs. The option is greyed out for all other sources. I rely on CC due to hearing problems. Am I missing some setting that will allow CC on HDMI inputs? Please tell me I am.


EDIT:

Never mind. I forgot how CC works.

This is $200 worth of PPV credit. It is good only for cable or satellite providers. Since I have neither, it does not benefit me. I'm going to send off for the discount codes in case they can be used for friends etc.

This is NOT a good TV for people with hearing impairment if CC doesn't work when it should.

If you have hearing impairment, then how do you know the speakers suck? Lol


All tv have terrible speakers. Buy a better sound system.


Also, closed caption is only for tv! Why would there be cc in other sources? You bluray/DVD player outputs the subtitle, not the tv.


Is this your FIRST tv ever? Lol

Can I use just any circular polarized glasses, like the Real D glasses, with this set. I just checked on eBay and have seen Real D glasses in packs of 10 and even 50, with each pair costing less than $1.00, when bought in those quantities.

Yes. I bought one of those Real D packs and they work the same as the ones that came with the tv.

Hi folks, noticed there haven't been many (if any) mentions of this on here so I thought I'd ask , when viewing in 2D->3D conversion mode or e.g. streaming SBS .mkv files in 3D mode do you get black bars down each side of the picture about 1 inch wide? A few of of owners of the UK equivalent model (LW550T) are seeing this and it would be nice to get confirmation whether this also affects the LW5600 / as well?


Thanks

Andy

DOH! (slap to the forehead.)

Not my first HDTV, but I haven't set one up in about 4 years. I forgot that it wasn't the TV generating the CC. Got that all figured out. lol.


I'm not deaf, just very hard of hearing. This is why the bad sound is an issue. I use CC alot to keep from blasting the family/neighbors out late at night.


My previous tv (Toshiba Regza) had great speakers for general tv watching. It was also about 5 inches thick compared to this one which is about an inch I think.


OK, I put an optical cable from the TV to my amp. But I do not get the dts sound through this cable from the PS3 Bluray. Is this normal? Is there a way to get the dts to pass through?


Anybody have the LG sound bar? Is it worth the $250 for use in general tv watching?
