This is what I have done myself in order to hookup a A/V receiver to this tv. I got one of those receivers with hdmi capabilities/ You connect your dvr/ cable via hdmi to the a/v receiver, you connect your dvd player etc via hdmi cable to the receiver also. These new receivers with hdmi i/o will perform as your home theater brain/ workhorse. You run the one hdmi cable from your receiver out to the input of your LG 42CS560. So you basically need one of thye newer a/v receivers with hdmi i/o if you have one of the older receivers you may be out of luck.

Question

Is this TV, the 42CS560, 120HZ or 60HZ?

I notice on your website for this tv that it is listed underneath the statement "See And Experience More" that this is a 42" Class 1080P 120HZ LCD TV. Yet everyone advertises it as 60HZ and your technical information PDF download also lists it as 60HZ. Which is it? Since I just bought one, it would be nice to know what it actually is.

We regret the confusion you have experienced with the specifications of this television. The 42CS560 should be a 60Hz refresh screen. It is the 42CS570 that should be your 120Hz screen.

I apologize, but it appears that you have been given incorrect information. While the USB port on this TV can be used to access an external hard drive or a USB Storage drive, it has not been configured to allow connection as a monitor to your TV. In order to connect your computer, you will need to use either the 15-pin VGA/RGB cable or a HDMI cable.

Question

Adjusting Picture Ratio

Setting up my new 42CS560 and found that when picture set to 16:9 ratio I am cropping out a good portion of the picture on the edges. I am currently watching a Gran Prix race on the HD channel and am unable to see any of the graphics showing race status at the edges of the picture. I tried all the other ratio settings and nothing changes. Is there some way to fine tune once a ratio is set?

We regret the trouble you are experiencing with this product. There are several potential causes for lines in a picture. Assuming that this is a television to which we are referring, lines can be in the picture due to a bad panel, a bad board, or possibly by something as simple as a poor quality cable/antenna line or a TV signal experiencing some interference. It is recommended to check the signal cables and, if you have an antenna, adjust it for the best reception possible. If this does not resolve the matter, then the unit may require service. To make service arrangements, you may either contact our Customer Interactive Center at 800-243-0000, or you can check our Repair Provider Lookup on our website, at http://www.lg.com/us/support/repair....

We regret the inconvenience you have experienced with this television. The only setting known to change the volume to a preset level by design would be the STORE DEMO mode. Access the INITIAL SETTING feature in the OPTIONS on the MAIN MENU. Change the STORE DEMO to HOME USE. This should resolve the matter. If it does not, then the unit may require service.
