*1The secondary and interactive audio may not
be included in the output bitstream if [Digital
Output] or [HDMI] option is set to [Primary PassThru]. (Except LPCM Codec : the output always
includes interactive and secondary audio.)
*2 This player automatically selects the HDMI audio
according to the decoding capability of the
connected HDMI device even though [HDMI]
option is set to [Primary Pass-Thru].
*3 The [PCM Multi-CH]/[Primary Pass-Thru] setting
of the [HDMI] option and [DTS re-encode]
setting of the [Digital Output] option cannot
be set together. If you set them together, the
[HDMI] or [Digital Output] option is set to [PCM
Stereo] automatically.
*4 On the PCM audio output, the sampling
frequency of DIGITAL AUDIO OUT is limited to
96 kHz.
*5 If the [HDMI] or [Digital Output] option is set
to [DTS re-encode], the audio output is limited
to 48 kHz and 5.1Ch. If the [HDMI] or [Digital
Output] option is set to [DTS re-encode], the
DTS Re-encode audio is output for BD-ROM
discs, and the original audio is output for the
other discs, files and broadcast signal (like
[Primary Pass-Thru]).
yy If [HDMI] option is set to [PCM Multi-CH] and
[Digital Output] option is set to [Primary PassThru] while playback Dolby Digital Plus or
TrueHD audio, DIGITAL AUDIO OUT is limited to
“PCM 2ch”.
yy If the HDMI connection is version 1.3 and Dolby
Digital Plus/Dolby TrueHD is output from HDMI
OUT jack, DIGITAL AUDIO OUT jack is limited to
“PCM 2ch” (When the HDMI and DIGITAL AUDIO
OUT are connected simultaneously).
Appendix
yy The audio is outputted as PCM 48 kHz/
16 bit for MP3/WMA file and PCM
44.1 kHz/16 bit for Audio CD while playback.
yy The Dolby TrueHD audio recorded on some Bluray discs consists of Dolby Digital and TrueHD
audio. Dolby Digital audio is output through
DIGITAL AUDIO OUT jacks and “DD” displays on
the screen if TrueHD audio is not output (for
example, when [HDMI] is set to [PCM Stereo] and
[Digital Output] is set to [Primary Pass-Thru]).
yy You must select a digital audio output and
a maximum sampling frequency that your
Amplifier (or AV receiver) accepts using [Digital
Output], [HDMI] and [Sampling Freq.] options on
the [Setup] menu (see page 30-31).
yy With digital audio connection (DIGITAL AUDIO
OUT or HDMI), Disc Menu button sounds of BDROM may not be heard if the [Digital Output] or
[HDMI] option is set to [Primary Pass-Thru].
yy If the audio format of the digital output does
not match the capabilities of your receiver, the
receiver will produce a strong, distorted sound
or no sound at all.
yy Multi-channel Digital Surround Sound via digital
connection can only be obtained if your receiver
is equipped with a Digital Multi-channel decoder.

About the internal
hard disk drive
The internal hard disk drive (HDD) is a fragile piece
of equipment. Please use the player following the
guidelines below to protect against possible HDD
failure.
yy Do not move the player while it is on.
yy Install and use a player on a stable, levelled
surface.
yy Do not use the player in excessively hot or
humid places, or in places that may be subject
to sudden changes in temperature. Sudden
changes in temperature can cause condensation
to form inside the player. This can be a cause of
HDD failure.
yy While the player is powered on, do not unplug
from the wall socket or switch the electricity off
from the breaker switch.
yy Do not move the player immediately after
switching it off. If you need to move the player,
please follow the steps below:
1. After the message “OFF” is shown in the
display, wait at least two minutes.
2. Unplug from the wall socket.
3. Move the player.
yy The HDD is very delicate. If used improperly or
in an unsuitable environment, it is possible that
the HDD will fail after a few years of use. Signs
of problems include playback unexpectedly
freezing and noticeable block noise (mosaic) in
the picture.
yy However, sometimes there will be no warning
signs of HDD failure.
yy If the HDD fails, playback of content will not
be possible. In this case, contact the LG service
center by following methods.
Web: http://lgservice.com
yy The manufacturer disclaims responsibility for loss
of data contained in internal HDD.
yy There are some capacities in HDD reserved for
the file system and timeshift.
6
Appendix
yy If there’s a power failure while the player is on,
there is a chance that some data on the HDD will
be lost.

accept, the warning message will appear. After
resolution change, if you cannot see the screen,
please wait 20 seconds and the resolution
will automatically revert back to the previous
resolution.
yy The 1080p video output frame rate may be
automatically set to either 24Hz or 50Hz
depending both on the capability and
preference of the connected TV and based on
the native video frame rate of the content on the
BD-ROM disc.
VIDEO OUT connection
The resolution of the VIDEO OUT jack is always
outputted at 576i resolution.

Storing Discs
After playing, store the disc in its case. Do not
expose the disc to direct sunlight or sources of heat
and never leave it in a parked car exposed to direct
sunlight.
Cleaning Discs
Fingerprints and dust on the disc can cause poor
picture quality and sound distortion. Before playing,
clean the disc with a clean cloth. Wipe the disc from
the centre to out.
Do not use strong solvents such as alcohol,
benzine, thinner, commercially available cleaners,
or anti-static spray intended for older vinyl records.
