Video Modes


The 37LH30 has the standard array of LG video modes: vivid, standard, cinema, sport, and game. There are also two expert modes that give users additional settings to fiddle around with. Typically we provide the manufacturer's description of each mode here, but LG persists in their refusal to include such a description on the TV or in the manual.
