Since LCD technology is not affected by magnetic fields like old CRT TVs, it will be safe to mount your speakers close to the TV itself.

I believe that all the speakers on the 46" models are down-firing. This is done in order to keep the actual size of the TV down while preserving the size of the screen. Many customers have restrictive placement when it comes to displaying their new TV. So by minimizing the actual foot print, the customer will have more options as to how to display the TV.

If you purchase the unit within the North American Territories, it will only have support for NTSC/ATSC/QAM broadcasting systems and only 100v-127v 60Hz power. Outside of the NA territories you will not only need a converter for the broadcast, but also for the power.

Question

How do I turn off nuisance info display?

Periodically when the TV is switched to display DVD, the info panel containing resolution and time data is transiently displayed in the upper left corner of the screen. I have the DVD connected to the Component 1 input. This is a particular nuisance when I have used the Move option in Zoom1 mode because the info display undoes any screen move I may have implemented and I have to reapply it to see captions. This can happen quite frequently while watching a movie.. How do I prevent the unwanted display from occurring? I have the LN40B550 LCD TV.

Thanks for the question! On the model number, the last few characters are only used for Samsung tracking purposes (basically, what stores get what stock). The last few characters does not signify model year or feature sets.

By pressing the Info button on the remote control while on the digital channel, you should see the info box pop up. the info box should display the channel number, channel info, time and other info regarding that channel. All the info, besides the channel number, is provided by your cable provider, and if it will not display, your cable provider is not providing this info to you, and can not be displayed on the unit.

The 120Hz truly is better for sports viewing. this is because it allows for all the action, even the fastest action to be displayed in the highest clarity for your viewing. The distance from the TV has nothing to do with this since 120Hz adds frames to the content to make the action smoother and much more clear.

I can definitely understand your concern. Although I do not think there is a way to adjust the brightness, I do think you can turn the light off or adjust when it turns on and off. If you head into the unit's menu, then to the Setup sub-menu, you will see the Light Effect option. With in this option, you will be able to adjust when the light is on or off, and even turn it off permanently.
