I should probably also add that my experience with the TV hasn't been as rosy as I've made it sound. I tend to get annoyed when electronics don't work like they're supposed to, or if a feature doesn't work like it should... especially when compared to an older device with the same feature.
The first thing I'm having an issue with is HDMI-CEC. My Mitsubishi DLP will turn on my receiver when the TV turns on, and turn off the receiver when the TV turns off. It's rather nice as it means that as long as I want to use the same device, I never have to touch the receiver's remote. Some devices will even change the receiver's input when turned on (the PS3 supports HDMI-CEC). I can get the LG TV to turn off the receiver when I turn off the TV, but I can't get it to turn it on. Normally, you would consult the manual to see if there's anything funky that you have to do, but the manual for the TV has NOTHING about Simplink (LG's HDMI-CEC solution) in it.
Now, I'm also finding out that the network upgrade capability doesn't seem to work. It's stating that my firmware version 03.02.67 is up-to-date, but I just downloaded version 03.40.08 from LG's website! Now, I get to take a step back technologically and perform the upgrade manually. Why even give the user a time-saving feature if it doesn't work? Although, it's really not that hard to put a file on a thumb drive, and plug it into the TV. The hardest part is putting it in a specific folder, but that's common for most devices as the PS3 and PSP required a similar update step.
I wasn't too happy with simply stating that it doesn't work because it could be my receiver that isn't working with it. So, I decided to bring my Denon AVR-2112 (the receiver that works well with my Mitsubishi) upstairs, and the LG TV pretty much would never do anything with it at all. It wouldn't turn it on, and it wouldn't turn it off. So, I'm going to say that this is probably an issue with the LG TV. Although, to be fair... I've always heard that HDMI-CEC is a pretty mixed bag, and if you get a setup that works well... consider yourself lucky. I don't know if anyone else has had similar experiences.
