Summary: I wanted to let everyone know that you can indeed use old LG remote Channel Changer, It got everything that New Magic Remote don't have.. Which is Eject the disc from the new player, also it forward and Rewind just like its VHS tape. It also got skip forward and Rewind as well! :).
The picture is just as good with the old player using the TVs upscaling

Summary: I'm sending this back. WARNING: If you use an optical/toslink connection to your sound system, this player converts everything tO TWO CHANNEL STEREO! I thought I was crazy, but I plugged in my older LG blue ray player and it output 5.1 surround with no problem.
Summary: Awesome Blu-ray! Love all the Smart features. Connected with my 65 inch LG LED TV and LG Soundbar it makes for a beautiful clear picture & great sound!!! Also immediately recognized the other computers in the house, connects to my music & pictures from my hard drive. Amazing product!!!
Summary: The whole idea of a blu-ray player is to watch blu-ray movies. The extras are unnecessary! Get a Roku 3 or Apple TV, etc. So I lived with this beast with a Wii like remote for 9 months. I couldn't take it any longer! I decided to roll the dice and buy one of Samsung's 2015 models.

Summary: After about three weeks of trying to get my magic remote synced I finally did andand I'm a lil bit disappointed as some of the smart functions don't work in my region and the unit freezes up intermittently but it works fine so far
