  • Lip sync issue fix for LG BD390

    I have lip sync problems (video does not exactly line up with audio) with this player on blu-ray titles (most recently with Kingdom of Heaven) and have seen others post lip sync issues as well. Is there any fix for this? BTW, I have the latest firmware update. Other than this issue, it's a great player but I will be returning it if there's no fix for this very annoying problem.

  • NTFS? Anyone?

    Does this player read Hard Drives with NTFS file system? Because to read the hi-def MKV`s it needs to! To be stuck with a 4gb i.e. Fat32 file system would be a real pain,especially in this modern age of huge files in HD.

  • HDMI V 7.1 ANALOGUE

    I have a Yamaha AV Receiver that supports 1.2 HDMI, as well as a whole host of analogue options. I believe it does not upconvert AV but allows pass through (if that is the right term). My question is whether I am better off connecting a LG BD390 via HDMI or 7.1 Analogue to get the best out of the onboard HD DOLBY MASTER AUDIO processing etc on the LG BD390..i.e 2X HDMI- 1 FROM THE LG TO THE AV RECEIVER AND THEN 1 x hdmi ONTO THE TV? OR am I better off plugging a LG BD390 directly by HDMI to the TV for visual and via 7.1 TO the AV Receiver? PLEASE HELP-Thank you in advance. Adrian

  • LG BD390

    Is there any way to disable the auto-shutdown on the BD390? After a period of inactivity, it shuts down and when it does, it drops all the router settings and I have to re-establish the wifi connections again. Don't see anything in the manual about it. I have found if I keep a DVD in the thing and keep it on pause, it will keep the power up but that's impractical to say the least. James...

    No, you can' disable it. You have to check the LG's
