Question

Does this TV have an on-board digital converter?

I am going to drop my cable and want to just hookup rabbit ears or some sort of antenna. Is this TV capable of that? I am under the impression that all TV's built today have this capability. Is that true?

Thanks
Jim

Here is the definitive answer: Despite the information and mis-information appearing on websites operated by retailers, consumer magazines, Internet-based reviewers, and even this LG-operated site, it is clear that the Model 32LN530B has NO headphone jack, 3.5 mm or otherwise.

Furthermore, although some sources mention the connectivity with a "component receiver," be aware that such connectivity is limited to digital means. There are no RCA-type line-level analog output jacks. Thus, if your intent was to connect to your older stereo receiver, you are out of luck.

A further, but unrelated displeasure: There apparently is no over-the-air DTV signal strength indicator. It is extremely helpful for aiming the antenna, and is critical in the case of distant-station reception. Even the absolute cheapest Vizio sets have this feature, so its absence in this LG model is a very unpleasant surprise.

If you are using cable or Tivo, the CC feature is controlled by their settings, NOT by the TV menu settings.
So, you may get lucky to see if the cable setting or Tivo setting allows CC on Mute.

You need to attach an external antenna to the tv. If you are in an area with strong signals an indoor antenna placed near a window should work. Go to auto tuning on the menu to scan for available channels. Now you should be able to watch those channels.

I apologize, but this TV does not have such a port. This television has not been designed for compatibility with any wireless headphones, nor any other type of headphones. The only suggestions we can make in this matter would be to connect the TV to a Home Theater System, and then connect your wireless headphones to the Home Theater System instead of the TV.

I had the same question, until I researched extensively and found that the specifications on the LG site clearly lists the headphone jack as one of the ports on the TV. In addition, every site that sells the TV also lists the headphone jack as one of the available ports. But, NO the 32" LED HDTV 32LN530B TV is tragically missing a headphone jack, arguably the most important aspect of one of these smaller thin TVs with poor audio quality. I bought the TV today after extensive research and denying buying a similar TV \BECAUSE it was missing a headphone jack. Very disappointed will have to return the TV as I am not equipped to deal with the more complicated digital out option.

We appreciate your interest in this television. All codes to be used for programming the Satellite remote control will be located in the setup instructions for the Universal Remote Control. If you have experienced trouble in locating codes for LG, you may also try using Zenith or Goldstar codes, as some of these coincide with LG frequencies.

This TV is designed to scroll through each of the tuning bands, independent of the others. As such, channels stored on the CABLE (CATV) tuning back will be separate from those stored on the DIGITAL CABLE (CADTV) tuning band. This means you will find channels 2, 4, 7, 15, 30 stored separately from 2-5, 4-6, 15-76, etc. Cable Boxes typically map a digital channel number (74-3) to a standard channel number (715), but this television is not designed to search stations with that high of a channel number. The TV will store the channel numbers as they are received. The different Tuning Bands must be searched independently of the others. You may also enter a channel number directly to instantly jump between tuning bands.

Kind of. Ours failed after a month of use (too late to send back to Amazon), at first LG insisted that we had to take it to a local LG-certified repair shop (carry-in repair). All of them were either too far away or had bad reviews on Yelp. After a few weeks, I complained to LG again and this time they sent a repair guy to the house. He did fix it, but I would have rather sent it back for repair. LG had to have lost a bunch of money on this transaction.

We regret the inconvenience you have experienced in obtaining information about these televisions. The difference between these models is found in the number of HDMI ports available. When software updates are released, it is recommended to utilize only the update designed specifically for a certain model. To do otherwise could result in improper operation requiring service that would not be covered by the manufacturer’s warranty.
