Question about Insignia IS-LCDTV32 32 in. Television

Audio vs. video

I have an lg home theater system that is brand new. when watching a dvd on my insignia the surround sound works fine, however, when i watch tv (through timewarner cable) the audio does not match the screen -it looks like a kung foo movie. the picture is ahead of the actual audio. i have had time warner out to verify the box is not defective, i have changed out to my old theater system receiver and the same thing happens. i also have exchanged out my lg theater system because of this and the problem still remains. the interesting thing is that the screen and voice will match up at first and then it will progressively become worse. if i shut off the theater system and turn it back on, it will sync up again for a while. please let me know if you have any suggestions. i feel the default must be the tv since i have tried multiple other sources and the same issue applies.

Re: audio vs. video

Here is the link for the user manual for your TV if you need it; First thing you could try is to change the video cable. They are often to blame for similar problems. Also change the video cable and inut/outputs from whatever type you are using to a different set (check page 9 of the pdf file for options), depending on which video output/input options you have on your theatre system (if you need help with this, please post back details of the theatre sytem you want to use)). You may have to change the video source from the TV menu. see if you get the same delay or not (Check page 18 "selecting the signal source"). Check page 24 - try turning off the headphone output option - this may possibly be causing a problem. Also try turning SRS on or off. Page 23 "setting audio mode"- keep pressing the "stereo" button - possibly SAP is turned on. try all 3 modes. The fact that the problem develops and worsens makes me think it could be due to slight overheating in the TV electronics. The operating temperature range for this set is 5-40 degrees celcius. picture/audio delay is commonly caused by hot/cold on this set. Unless you are getting sun on the set, or particularly hot weather and no aircon, this could still happen - possibly indicating a dusty air intake. Check all of these and try vacuuming them (from the outside of the case only). Other than that, the most likely cause will be a failing capacitor somewhere in the circuit - These can be checked/replaced by most TV repair shops. Perhaps first try contacting Insignia - see if they have any ideas; Hope this helps :)

Sound has gone off on my luxor TV

Use an external sound system such as a (pick your brand) home A/V receivers. Or buy a new tv. I prefer not to use the internal sound from a TV and instead run all audio through a home theater A/V (Audio Video) sound system. The surround sound adds so much to basic TV viewing.

I installed a HDMI cable and an Optical cable to whatch movies and shows from my LG HD LCD TV, but nothing seems to work. The stereo is also a LG LHB336 system. Which is compatible with the TV. We were...

Hi,Even though you have done some cabling already,for the sake of correct connection I describe all the possible cabling alternatives to you..You can select whichever you want..

** Receiver's "AUDIO and VIDEO OUTPUT as " 2xRCA Audio+1x Video " or "Optic Cable OUTPUT or " HDMI Output " of your Home Theater Receiver (whichever you want ,based on the existing sockets and necessary cables on your hand )
** AT TV side : you need to connect "Audio+ Video input s " as can either be : 3xRCA jacks or "Optic cable input " or HDMI IN connector of your TV ,
** than just switch to DVD mode on Receiver and play DVD
You can use "HDMI" connections as well but sometimes HDMI creates problem on Audio..

** AT TV side : you need to connect "Audio Output " as can either be : 2xRCA jacks or "Optic cable output" or HDMI connector of your TV ,
** to Receiver's "TV input "or "AUX input" or "Optic Cable input"
or HDMI of your Home Theater Receiver (whichever you want ,based on the existing sockets and necessary
cables on your hand )
** than just switch to respective SOURCE mode on
Receiver corresponding the connector you have used on the back of Receiver ..
You can use "HDMI" connections as well but sometimes HDMI creates problem on Audio..

Pls remember.."IN " goes to "OUT" or vice versa..all the times..

There you go..Both Tv and DVD sound are on the
Receiver as SURROUNDING SOUND .By this means ,whatever you watch on the TV will come thru your Receiver's SURROUNDING SOUND speakers as well .

Hope this helps!..if more help requires pls let me know.
Take care and please

How do you set up netflix on your Panasoni TH-42PZ85U?


Currently, all three video game consoles on the market are compatible with Netflix "Watch Instantly:" Sony Playstation 3, Microsoft Xbox 360 and Nintendo Wii. All you will have to do is download a free application for your console. Playstation 3 users can find this application on the Playstation Network and Wii However, Xbox 360 users will have to pay a yearly Xbox Live subscription to access Netflix's video stream.

Many new models of high-definition Blu-Ray disc players already have Netflix applications. Several different manufacturers include this application, from high-end brands like Philips and Panasonic to generic brands like Vizio and Insignia. These players often include other popular internet applications, such as Facebook and Pandora Internet Radio. Also, new TiVo digital video recorder models have a built-in Netflix application.

Select HDTV models already have a Netflix "Watch Instantly" player as a pre-installed application. All you will have to do is run the Netflix application from the TV menu screen and you will be able to watch streaming Netflix movies and TV. Brands that have been including Netflix on their HDTVs as of 2011 include Sony, Sanyo, Panasonic, Vizio and many others.

Several of the same companies that manufacture Netflix ready Blu-Ray players also have full surround sound home theater sets with the same features. Though Netflix Watch Instantly does not currently support surround sound audio, this feature will be implemented in the future. Brands that have been supporting Netflix in their home theater packages include Panasonic, LG, Samsung, Insignia, and Sony.

We just bought a 60 inch plasma TV. We have a home theater which works fine when we run DVD's, but we would like to connect to the optical digital audio out port so we can hear the TV sound though our home...

If your surround system has either white/red phono connectors or scart marked as "aux in" or "tv in" or similar, and the TV has a headphone out socket, then you could use these. The cable required will be available on e-bay or a good electronic stockist.

Are you getting sound through the TV from the DVD, or is the sound from the DVD coming out of your home theater/surround sound system (if you have one)?

If it has more than one HDMI port (on the TV) try changing it. If not look around in your DVD settings as it might think it is only giving audio through the HDMI to a audio/home theatre system. And using the other video outputs to give the video instead.

It shouldn't be a problem with the cable, since it is digital, if it were not to work - nothing would, or the audio would atleast be coming out weird (it it wasn't working).

How to redirect the sound of my new LG 52" HDTV LCD to my LG home theatre?

Flemflam-   There is a couple of options here. If you are using a DirecTV Receiver or a box from the cable company then you want to run the Audio out lines to your Audio/Surround Sound Receiver. If you are running cable directly into the TV then you want to use the Audio Out Plugs on the TV. In some cases there is no Audio out but there is a Headphones out. In this case you can run a Mini-Plug to Composite Audio cable to the receiver.    You can also Call 1-800-GeekSquad and they will dispatch an Home Theater Installer to resolve your problem! They are great for Turn Key Solutions!

Home theater system connections

I have the same tv but my dvd surround is a toshiba, that shouldn't matter though. When I watch a dvd I go to component 2 which is where I have my dvd connected on the input of the tv when I watch tv and want the surround on I go to component 1 which is the tv input then on my dvd player I go to auxillary and I can watch tv in surround. I don't know the LG home theatre system but you should be able to select your inputs like between dvd, tuner, aux. Flip between them and you should get sound. hope this helps.
