REVIEW: LG Flatron M2794D Part 4
The controls on the LG M2794D involve eight buttons which are located on the side of the model. Alternatively, there is a remote control, which you should definitely use. Using the controls directly on the model is very complicated, since the labelling on the buttons is also located on the side. Although this does not spoil the look of the front, it means that finding the right button is a game of change. On the other hand, the remote control is clearly constructed and allows for intuitive use of the OSD.
Menu buttons and remote control on the LG M2794D.
In the central area of the remote control are four direction buttons in a circular pattern for navigation through the OSD. In the middle is the button for confirming a choice ("OK"), which can follow a jump to a sub-menu. Above the navigation buttons are two buttons with which the OSD can be called up ("MENU") and (EXIT). Most of the other buttons have functions for TV usage via the internal DVB-T and analogue cable TV tuner. In the top row, the user can switch between the two tuners using the "TV" button and the signal input can be selected using the "INPUT" button.
The structure of the OSD is very clear and is divided into seven main menus which allow the user to access all functions of the LG M2794D.

This menu option allows the two integrated tuners (DVB-T and analogue cable TV) to be controlled. An automatic setting searches for the channels available and enters them into the list of channels. This list can be arranged into whatever order the user wishes. For faster access, individual channels can be saved in a list of favourites.
This option contains all settings which influence the image display. Depending on the signal in use, a different number of functions are available. In any case, the image format being played back can be determined and appropriate interpolation can be achieved accordingly. For the playback of video signals, various zoom modes are offered.
The user can select from five image modes. In PC use, "Standard", "sRGB", "Cinema", "Sport" and "Game" are available. If a video signal is being played back, "sRGB" is replaced with "Vivid".
Unlike most computer LCDs, the brightness regulator does not control the intensity of the backlight, but instead affects the black level. The contrast regulator accordingly influences the white level. The backlight can be controlled separately.
The sharpness of the image display and colour saturation can only be changed for video signals.
