Comment:
Bought this unit, and was glad that it was meant to sync with my LG 47 inch Smart TV. But it froze less than an hour after set-up. I had to unplug it from the wall to get it to work again. Then, within a half hour it froze again. I took it back to the dealer within 24 hours of purchase. I Googled the model and added the word freezes, and I discovered the LG BP530 is well-known for the freezing problem.
