I'm using a LC-46D64U, but most of the similar and higher lines (65U,
82U, 92U) all have it too (and from what I've seen, they use the same
protocol). I'm not sure which of the lower lines have it (I don't
believe the 43U series does).

I don't think so (other than if you have a bad serial port that sends
an over voltage or something). If you send commands it doesn't
recognize, it just responds with ERR. All of the commands it accepts
(or at least those that are documented) are all for functionality you
can already get at through buttons on the remote or in one of the user
menus, so there no secret admin interface here (that I know of)
