LG 42LF580V

 

It is a slightly older model than the current LG models. Don't be put off as this 'older' models support Flash. The newer WEBOS models have flash disabled & I believe you can't enable it. (The newer models still work fine with You Tube, etc.)

Nope.

Able to attach a DVD, Humax, and both both Chromecast devices easily. In the furture will be attaching the LG "Magic Wand". Very pleased so far with my purchase.

An additional Scart connection may have helped - it only has one, but enough of other types of connections anyway.
