    Not everybody are Android fans and I find the apps in the LG Store are perfectly adequate for my needs. I am very happy with my LG, best set I have owned.

    OLED65B8 webOS browser won't accept password for Amazon.com account. Winows Chrome on desktop or Android phone both sign in normally. I have several other account sign-ins that do the same thing -- work on desktop but not on TV. What's going on?

    The sales person in showroom pushed for LG saying it has better sound and picture richness. But obviously didn't reveal big shortcomings of non-android smart TV in today's ecosystem. This is useless as you are not having freedom to install apps of your choice from playstore. I can't even get Sonyliv. Horrible OS. Now I am trapped for years after buying this TV. Don't buy LG or other non-android TV unless you can affford to throw it in weeks. When will LG grow up?

    I’ll tell you what whenever you get time go and try out the things you want from a smart tv on an android tv and samsung smart tv. None is capable of what you want. Android has chrome so it might be better at browsing but there are chances of memory overflow . You know it took an year more for Sony to get Dolby Vision working properly. I would trade away All the smart functionality for Dolby Vision if it had come to a choice. As far as OLED is concerned its not for everyone and one should consider usage before buying. LG Sony or Panasonic all are similarly susceptible to burn in. yes I also want my smart tv to be future proof but none is. So keep patience and think of your tv as a display and get additional hardware whether firestick or anything you like. Down the line everyone may have to get one.

    @chriswv3 If you wanted a PC with the possibilities to watch television then you should have bought a pc with a tv-card. Regards, Jan

    IMO You have a wrong understanding of the capabilities of a smart tv. It is not meant to replace your laptop. Yes they do expect that consumers connect their laptop but not use the tv as a laptop. I am talking in general for any smart tv. The capabilities you are expecting ; even an external box would fail to provide. The closest you can get is an apple tv or an nvidia shield, still they can’t replace a laptop’s capabilites. Second to push the sales of the newer model they omit new features from older models and provide only on new ones.

    WebOS rocks ; android is slow , lags and buggy . The only advantage of android is the wide range of apps. If you want so many apps just buy a firetv stick . Its way better than any android tv.

    You need to install the Amazon Prime App, you don't use a browser to watch Amazon Prime, at best it will only be in low res, Amazon will only stream in HD with the App. If you need to create an account, and other account keeping activities, you should do that with another device, either phone/tablet or PC/Mac.

    I ended up buying this more traditional remote for WAF- https://www.amazon.co.uk/Genuine-Control-AKB75095308-Netflix-Buttons/dp/B077LCF27F It works with my C9 and it has the info button and no movie button The price varies- I brought it for £13.99

    I've recently bought a LG OLED C9 PLA TV set, installed the latest version of firmware WebOS 4.71.XX. I like the WebOS interface, but there is one thing I absolutely don't understand and would appreciate to get solved: I use the single tuner in both modes, satellite and antenna. I'd like to have mixed favorites list from stations received from antenna and satellite and browsing between them without explicitly switching to satellite or antenna mode, thus having WebOS to automatically set satellite or antenna mode depending on the chosen station from the favorites list. At the moment this is quite difficult to handle: Open the list from RC, open the filter (yellow button), switch between antenna/satellite -> the list is reset to All, again choose the favorites list of my choice. I know it is possible to add mixed tuner mode stations to favorites, but there is always shown the portion matching the currently set tuner mode. This is quite difficult to handle. Isn't there another way?

    @Rohit#7 if you wanted a Samsung why did you buy a LG? For the record, the number of available apps does not say anything about the quality of an OS. regrards.

    Looks like LG TV only support combinations of Internal Speakers + Wired Headphones and Internal Speakers + Optical output. You may try a soundbar with such functionality.

    If its not in the LG Store then you may just have to wait for an update on your TV.

    @Will I guess you are thinking that because it is a "smart" device, and has an operating system and "apps" layered on top of that, it should behave a bit like a PC (or even a server)? That is not the case I am afraid (certainly not outside of manufacturing, and internal development tools, as far as I know). Exposing the OS and the file structure to outside influence, tools etc could do untold damage, break any inbuilt security layers, and might even make it unbootable. Therefore the underlying WebOS is not available for external Browser or Terminal Session login in the normal way. Even if you try to compare it with a modern Router, that you CAN log into, the UI there will always be very restrictive, and only a limited subset of the command set and file structure is available (even from SSH to do CLI stuff) for similar reasons. There IS a developer mode for authorised developers, but that is very controlled, and access is via a developer app, using an accredited account to log in on a development PC or laptop. The API's involved would (AFAIK) only communicate in a specific way, and do not expose any internal file structures, it is just there for deploying and testing apps, and session time is limited to 50 hours. The best you can do if you want to de-clutter your TV and remove the unwanted apps, it to see if your model supports the app deletion in the EDIT mode. Some apps might be "system" ones that might be "pinned" or bundled in, and might not have a remove option.

    you are so correct about I should have researched everybody should due the research, Most of the research I did said the LG's tv's are great, which is true if you only want to watch TV. LGOS web is so restick' tive It is not fun. One buys a smart tv to do more than just watch TV. I would never buy another one

    As @Siyabonga Tshabalala said. Download and install LG ThinQ app on your mobile from the Playstore then you could connect your TV to your mobile and control it through them.

    I usually inform myself before I buy something that will accompany me the next 5 years or more. I choose LG but not OLED which I think is a technique that is too young. If one want to be among the first to use a "new" technique then you may expect some problems. Time invested in comparing and reading about new "features" and problems pays of in the end. Adds and salespeople are not the best advisors, the internet is full of reviews waiting to be read. Regards

    No, you wanted a unicorn 🦄 and forgot they don't exist. A TV is called "TV" for a reason (whatever qualification you put in front of it). Otherwise the would have called it PC-with-superb-monitor. And unfortunately you show the distinct sign of someone who expects current day products to be perfect and flawless. Every product can break down and has its drawbacks. Plasma, LCD, OLED, CRT.... All screens existing have a tendency to burn in, some sooner then the other and individual cases differ as well.

    A TV is meant for providing an image on a screen. LG is the best for that. If you want to play with apps, get a tablet or pc and mirror your screen. Or even use your phone. Don't expect a car to fly.

    @queequeg65 thanks for feedback. That seems to be the latest one, from October 2019. Keep checking, over the next few months, in case they bring out a newer firmware. You COULD in the meantime try playing the Security and Privacy card, and officially complain to LG Support. Have a read of this (there are probaly more/later technical articles on this): https://www.makeuseof.com/tag/wifi-direct-insecure/

    Because WebOS is more like real Linux I prefer it over Android. Unlike Samsung this TV-set is hardly spying on its users. Why did you not inform yourself before buying? Regards, Jan

    Well you should have done your homework on the television's OS before buying it since you are do displeased. Maybe you'll learn to do your due diligence next time before making such a large monetary investment.

    I found that, on my B8, if I re-register my Amazon account as a new user, using the same username and password as my existing account, it will sign me in with all my account data intact -- but only for one session. When i return, it rejects my password again.
