Question

Great picture but how to fix lip sync problem, only on ABC network channels, coming from Spectrum Hawaii?  Same cable box into my older Panasonic Plasma, using same HDMI cable: do NOT see lip sync problem.  What am I missing, or what is different coming in on the cable that bothers the LG set but does not   bother the Panasonic TV?

I have the lip sync problem too and based on my search for an answer there are lots of people who have this problem.  The one workaround I have found is turning off the Dolby sound output from my directv box and changing it to PCM.   Of course this means I have no Dolby sound to go along with the beautiful picture, but at least the sound is not 5 seconds behind that picture.  It sure would be nice if someone from LG would post something about this, if not a solution then at least an explanation of the problem.

Nothing less than a Solution will be satisfactory to me. Spent premium price; expect premium picture AND at least synchronized sound. Let us hope that "Life's Good" and also get the sound good. (It is also my opinion that the so-called owners manual is less than Meager.)

A long time ago I also had this problem (but I don't think it was with the LG tv). What I had to do was set the screen mode on 'game' or 'movie'. This way the tv doen't process the image and the delay is minimal.

Hope this helps.

Contacted Costco Concierge service AGAIN, finally got some action! They contacted LG Tech support (professional level tech support, not consumer level tech support?), they in turn contacted local TV repair shop, which I presume is under contract with LG and/or Costco. Technician brought proprietary hand held remote control (which required LG provided 4 digit pin to activate/log in to control my set. Changed an audio setting from something to PCM -problem solved. Wish that LG had provided the ability to change that setting with my personal remote.

I guess so, but that is better than bad sync. Built in speakers are not really super fidelity anyway; and my old ears probl'y don't need dolby sound. But I should keep searching for a better fix..

      Hi,

      I purchased a new 43" LG 4K TV in India couple of months ago. Model Number is 43UJ652t. I use Dish TV DTH service for watching TV. I connected my Dish TV HD Set Top Box  to the TV through HDMI port (HDMI 1)

      I have couple of questions - 
       
      When I select the HDMI input to watch TV, the following information is displayed on the top-left corner of the TV (See pic 1 below). It says 720p there. What does it mean? I have  HD set top box with HD Channel subscription. Why is it saying 720p there even when I am watching HD channels? There is an Icon in the Web OS launcher called Live TV (see  pic 2 below). It doesn't work with DTH set-top boxes? Does it only work with Antenna and Free to Air channels? The TV guide icon (see pic 3) in the Web OS launcher doesn't doesn't play the TV Guide for my Set-Top Box. It asks me to fine tune the programming first  but Auto-tuning doesn't find any channels? Is the TV Guide functionality available only for the Antenna and  FTA channels? Can I add channels from my set-top box to the My Channels menu (see pic 4)? How do I add shows from Amazon Prime to the "My Content" menu for easy access. Currently, it only allows me to add YouTube content Can I add a specific channel from my Dish TV set top box as a long press shortcut in my LG Magic Remote? In the below LG videos, when the presenter selected  the STB while setting up Live TV, the TV automatically searches for the channels and populates the TV Guide? Is it not possible to do it for Indian DTH set top boxes?
         



      These questions are driving me mad. Please help me in understanding the LG Web OS System better

      I recently purchased a B6, and came to realize my good old AVR (a Denon 1612), featuring HDMI 1.4, won't do HDR pass-through, so intending to keep the Denon, I switched to having the TV in the middle, instead of the AVR as I did until today.  I have managed to get audio sent from the TV to the AVR via both ARC and optical, multichannel working fine, but the problem came when I tried to have multichannel audio from the PC to the TV.
      The problem is, the PC (using a GeForce 1070) sees the TV as accepting only stereo PCM audio, and only allows to select stereo in the device's speaker setup. Needless to say, I need 5.1 PCM to get multichannel audio in PC games.
      I even tried using an EDID override, copying the audio capabilities from the Denon to the TV, which allowed me to have Windows think it can send the TV any of the stuff the Denon takes, but even then any audio from channels other than left front and right front  is lost along the way to the AVR. My guess is that for whatever reason, the TV is decoding the stream and only letting L and R through.
      On the bright side of things, multichannel pass-through does works fine for DD and DTS streams, allowing to watch a movie on the PC and have semi-decent multichannel on the AVR. Dolby TrueHD and DTS HD, though, are a no go, even using ARC (optical obviously doesn't support HD audio).
      So yeah... Any ideas? Suggestions?
      I'd like to think I won't be forced to buy a new AVR just to have it pass through HDR, so any help will be appreciated.

      Hi I Tried to switch my HDMI port from 1 to 3 in my smart tv. The existing port 1 was for Dish connection, when I changed the port I am not getting the sound. Then I switched to the old port 1 then I got the sound. Is there any thing I need to do when i switch HDMI ports. I tagged the port to dish and magic remote is paired with that port 1.

      I have an LG 55SJ810V TV and Philips CSS5530B Surround Sound Speakers. The speakers work fine with everything except my LG ARC, including optical and BT from the LG and the ARC from a JVC TV, but I just can't get them to work off the ARC from my LG TV.  
      I have played around for hours with the TV settings. The Sound Out is set to External (Optical/HDMI ARC), although it often returns to default internal speakers. I've tried it with SIMPLINK on and off and the mode as Auto and PCM. Nothing sticks. I say sticks because I've had it working for a few seconds a couple of times, then it just goes off. E.g when switching cables from my JVC ARC to my LG ARC it worked for a few seconds.
      I've tried the Device Connector a few times, using either the Soundbar or Home Theatre set up. I've tried this after resetting the TV back to factory settings too. Nothing.
      LG customer services didn't seem too helpful and said a technician would call but if they do they're not quick!
      Any ideas would be much appreciated, otherwise it's going back for another brand because the twin tuner feature doesn't work as expected either (can't record one and watch another).
