    Morning all

    So, what's all this firmware stuff about? Is it updates for the TV's? Or just what the tv runs with?

    I'm such a novice at these things, but could get right into it all! Just ordered a sky HD box so looking forward to how much better the picture is on my LG 540u

    Cheers

    ...firmware is the main software the tv uses...sometimes they add extra features via firmware, sometimes they fix mini bugs etc...its always best to use the latest firmware for the tv you have.... sometimes though the firmware can have a negative effect and actually make something worse. Its always best to check on here and look for negative feedback about the latest firmwares.

    ...think yourself lucky you don't have to use Samsung firmwares, they can be a total lottery...i am sticking on 3008 firmware as everyting seems ok!!!
