This is good, you can use your sky dish to get freesat chanel!
will you be able to get hotbird chanels if you tune into 13 deg, or is only set to get eurobird only?
#2
It's also the same price at John Lewis with free five year guarantee.
#3
I have this set and it is great. and you will be getting iplayer and the ITV version, in the first half of this year.

My mate just bought the 46" version from richer sounds for £699, I dont know if its just a fault with his or not but the brightness has a delay, if the picture goes from a dark night shot to a brighter shade the backlighting takes a second to catch up. Especially noticable watching widescreen movies with the black bands.
#5
I had the same problem. if you turn off true motion in the picture settings the issue is fixed.

i couldnt tell the differentce in the picture anyway with it on or off.

Guys , just a quick question, even we get a free sat (installed by paying one off 150£ ?) , still do we need to pay monthly TV License fees for such Tvs ?

Yes - you need a TV license to watch broadcast TV or listen to the radio via any means.

£150 for freesat sound like a rip off to me. To answer your question though you do still need to pay licence if you have a TV capable of receiving BBC channels.

The clue is in the title "TV Licence"

The Licence is to entitle you to operate equipment capable of receiving any TV.

If you live in a flat where there is a communal dish (I know as I used to have sky before cancelling it) will this TV work using this dish? Is any Installation required? Or is it just plug in and watch?

Thanks to anyone who can answer this. Seems like a good deal. Cheers

Yes, just plug in the coaxial cable and it will work with the same dish/setup as sky digital.

Why would you buy it from Argos when you can get a free delivery and free 5 year warranty from John Lewis for the same price?
#13
my brothers just bought the panasonic g10 with freesat, u need to use the 28 degree astra satellite, cant use the 13 degree one, hotbird def wont work, it would be a good price with a 5yr warranty. It dont cost £150 to install £20-£30 for the bits if you aint already got a dish , free if you got a quad lnb like me and run another wire of the lnb.

No license required for radio reception.

Total no-brainer - go to John Lewis if you want this TV - free delivery and a 5 year warranty!

Apologies - just checked on the Licensing site - and you are correct - no license required for Radio - only required to watch TV as it is being broadcast.

Hopefully ALL the hot votes are for the JL deal!

It had been £549 at RicherSounds early last month and friend got JL to pricematch them then, but RS have since put up to £599 anyway.

I'm assuming JL currently at this price (was £799!) as a competing NATIONAL retailer has the set at that price CURRENTLY, so if/when it does zoom up at JL do check what RS are offering and get JL to match RS.

Hi there, you need a TV Licence only if you watch "live" TV broadcasts.You don't need a TV Licence just because you own a TV:thumbsup:

I think that TVL would reckon you are likely to need a license if you have spent £600 on a new TV, and you would have a tough time getting a judge to believe you too.

This is 'dynamic backlighting' (or whatever LG has called it). It looks at the screen image and boosts the brightness where it thinks it needs it. You'll notice it on most TV's so if it bugs you/your mate then turn it off. Most optimum configurations recommend turning it off.

I had the same issue with my Samsung LE40B530 - its called Dynamic Contrast on it - and even though I turned it off, it still gave me the same problem. But after a quick search I realised that I need to turn off "Energy Saving Mode" which basically does the same thing. The issue was mostly noticeable when watching movies during night time so waiting to test it out today to see whether that will do the trick

i had the 47 version of this tv and the auto dimmer thing did my head in and it cant be turn off,there was a firmware update in the 3rd week of december that was to take it off but it did not on mine
#25
I got the 32" version in November and was so impressed with it, bought a 47" last week from richer sounds and sold my old 42" panasonic on ebay for £300. If you dont have a dish i got a new one off ebay for £20 with 8 LNB ports, 20M of cable and 4 connectors. installed myself, dead easy! took a morning to fit and connect to 2 TVs.

voted HOT!

TV License fees, are payable even if you just watch the iplayer and dont even own a TV.

Now gone upto a whopping £799 literally as i was about to order it. They would not do it for that price so i ended up ringing around to get it cheaper so they would price match. A real pain so i hope the tv is worth it
