  1. Guessing that you would need a 3D source, i.e. a Bluray player with 3D, and the appropriate glasses and away you go.
  2. As you have read the threads you will have seen many reasons you may not be able to get HBO, and some ways of getting HBO. Which of the reasons that you cannot get HBO apply to you, without knowing that I cannot give you a brief answer.
  3. If you could look at some of the many other threads on the subject you may find an answer to your enquiry. https://www.lgwebos.com/search/?q=hbo
  4. Please see the many other threads on the forum for an answer to your question. https://www.lgwebos.com/search/?q=zee5
  5. They should be fine, in theory get them in pairing mode and follow the on-screen instructions.
  6. Sadly NetCast is not generally support any more and if I recall correctly there was an app but it had some stability issues as it was not regularly updated, if your TV still works well as just that I would suggest a ROKU as being your best avenue to getting Prime Video.
  7. Hi Nick Yes, to the latter, because you already seem to have understood my point. However in an attempt to be helpful I have done some investigation and found an LG YouTube video that shows how to set up a TV that will not be used for live TV services, the link below should start at the point with the relevant setting: https://youtu.be/R4Jh5VBLBSk?t=111 Hopefully this will be of more use than people whining about features they did not think to ask about before they purchased a product. Oh see what I did there!
  8. Yes I am sure that the website does work on your phone and computer (as it does on my own devices), but those are not running webOS. Just because something works on one browser does not mean it will work in another. Did you ask MotoGP if they had tested their browser in webOS or if they just tested it on mobile & desktop platforms? Websites have to be written to be compatible with the browser trying to serve the page, for instance Internet Explorer would need several different pieces of coding to be viewable in all the different releases. As I have written else where in this thread the webOS browser probably does not recognise the JavaScript being uses to display the video, and it should be relatively easy for MotoGP to engineer their site firstly to recognise the webOS browser and secondly to serve it with a version of JavaScript that it can understand and display. http://webostv.developer.lge.com/discover/discover-webos-tv/ It is easier for a website to write a site to serve the correct JavaScript to a web browser than for a browser manufacture to cater for every esoteric piece of coding language out there. It should not be difficult as webOS's browser is based around WebKit as used by Safari, Opera, Chrome and even now Microsoft's upcoming releases of Edge. Most websites are not catering to webOS or even Smart TVs in general as they still make up a very small percentage of devices browsing the web, all sites need to be told to look for specific browser ID strings: https://developers.whatismybrowser.com/useragents/explore/operating_system_name/webos/
  9. Well if they are webOS apps and have been written to run in a portable format then yes.
  10. Please get in contact with the MotoGP site, if they do not know there is a problem they will not know to fix it.
  11. Hi Maureen, Not the best thing that you had to do a reset but at least things are back up and running as they should be.
  12. Hi Maureen, Try this: Restart your smart TV Unplug your TV from power for at least 1 minute. While your TV is unplugged, press and hold the power button on the TV for 5 seconds to discharge it. If you cannot access the power button or your TV does not have one, leave your TV unplugged for at least 3 minutes. Plug your TV back in. Turn your TV on. Try Netflix again.

  13. Model of TV, firmware version etcera etcetra etcetra...
  14. Sounds like it needs to back to the same service centre that 'repaired' it.
