technology provides a slim profile and delivers amazing brightness,
clarity and color detail, as well as greater energy efficiency compared to
conventional LCD TVs.
XD Engine: The 42LV3700 utilizes LG's exclusive XD Engine video processing system for crisp
images and rich, vibrant colors.
4,000,000:1 Dynamic Contrast: The LED-LCD TV delivers a
Dynamic Contrast Ratio of 4,000,000:1; which provides stunning colors and deep
black, so your picture's details don't get lost in the shadows.
HDTV Tuner: The TV has built-in over-the-air HDTV (ATSC) and
Digital Cable (QAM) tuners, so you don't need a separate set-top box to receive
and decode over-the-air HDTV/SDTV or unencrypted Digital Cable signals.
1080p Resolution: The LG 42LV3700 LED-LCD TV has a display
resolution of 1920 x 1080. All of the television's video inputs are displayed at

Satellite/Cable box with an HDMI output. The HDMI 1/2 inputs can also be used
to connect a device with a DVI output (a DVI-to-HDMI adapter cable is
necessary). If a DVI-equipped device is used, a separate audio cable will
also be needed from the device to the "PC/DVI Audio In" 3.5mm stereo audio
jack. No audio cables are needed for an HDMI-equipped device. The HDMI jack

video adapter. This same component video output shares the audio signal with
the composite audio/video terminal.
- Composite: The two composite video inputs will accept
480i only. One composite
audio/video terminal consists of an AV 3.5mm connector and a 6"
mini-to-composite video/stereo RCA adapter.
Note: The television's HDMI inputs do not accept 480i video

Intelligent Sensor automatically optimizes the picture to the lighting and color
conditions in the room for a more enjoyable viewing experience. The LG LED-LCD TV's
Intelligent Sensor automatically optimizes the picture to the lighting
and color conditions in the room for a more enjoyable viewing experience. Unlike
other sensors which can only sense brightness of
ambient light, LG's "Intelligent Sensor" uses 4,096 sensing steps to
evaluate its surroundings. Using a sophisticated algorithm, the LG processes
picture quality elements including brightness, contrast, color, sharpness and
white balance. The result is a picture optimized for its surroundings, more
pleasing to watch and which can also save up to 50% in power consumption.

ARC (Audio Return Channel): The Audio Return Channel in HDMI
1.4 enables the TV, via a single HDMI cable, to send audio data "upstream" to
your A/V receiver; increasing user flexibility and eliminating the need for any
separate S/PDIF audio connection. This feature allows audio to be sent from the
television to your A/V receiver through the same HDMI cable already being used

connected to the TV. ARC allows audio from the TV tuner, Network connection,
inserted USB device, HDMI inputs, or any analog connected device to be heard
through your ARC compatible AV receiver via the television's HDMI ARC input. The
audio from the TV's tuner, network connection can pass as Dolby Digital or 2ch
PCM. HDMI, USB, and analog connected devices will be output as 2ch PCM only.
Note: Both the television and the receiver must support
ARC for this function to work properly. When connecting an A/V receiver that
