Setting Up the LG HLB54S
It also integrated Video on Demand (VoD), in which users may click to access to the YouTube collections online and the additional BD Live means having access to extra content and downloadable features from film makers’ websites.
The 2 HDMI inputs will allow connection with other devices such as a game console, DVD recorder or HD satellite box.
This system also boasts of the Simplink feature which will allow control of all connected AV devices with one remote control. This is simply LG’s expression for HDMI CEC control. When users press on the Simplink button, a list of components will be displayed on screen and users will only need to select which device to change. However, there is no guarantee that it works 100%.
Sound and Video Quality
Every detail on the screen can be seen from Blu-Ray movies. It carries not only Blu-Ray technology but also a full HD (1080p) up-scaling, which may improve the quality of most, if not all, other disc formats output.
The LG HLB54S with 4.1 channel also features the LG Sound Gallery which includes seven simple options to enhance the sound being played. The night mode will also turn down the bass to allow a softer tone for soothe listening without interrupting others.
