What a ripoff!!!!  It says connect a "Smartphone".  I have an iPhone, that everyone in the world would consider a "Smartphone".  It isn't until after I bought the TV and got into the connection process that they define a "Smartphone" as not including an iPhone.  That is just totally misleading!!!!!  If they don't support iOS then they should make that *very* clear up front.

I tried it on our ipad mini and it worked. The app was... well crap but it worked. They really need to work on the ui and remove the "connecting with device" message that appears constantly. Also, they should provide support for other content services like google, dropbox, onedrive. We have nothing stored locally, everything in the cloud. Samsung has this, why not LG?

      The LG TV Plus app for Android works fine for me but it can only turn OFF tv and not turn it ON.  I assume that it is because when TV is off it is no longer on the WIFI network and the app cannot communicate with it.  My Roku Android app can turn ON and OFF my LG TV.  So, I first turn it on with the Roku app then boot up the LGTV Plus app.   Seems ridiculous that LG could not figure out how to turn on the TV.  
      Does anyone know of a fix?

      I have two very thin but very distinct parallel, vertical lines on the left of my screen. Is this a hardware or software problem?

      Hi there,

      a few weeks ago i got the 43uj6309 LG SmartTV and now i got a question to this TV.

      My plan is to install a Ambilight for the TV itself, without HDMI input (as I got none). I red the last days a lot about it and it seems its not that hard.
      The only problem is, every topic is about grabbing the video source of an HDMI device, not the TV screen itself.  As i dont use any HDMI Device and just stream TV, Netflix and Amazon my ambilight setup has to get the video information from the TV directly.

       So i came up with an idea... maybe its not (yet) working or just a stupid idea...

      Is it possible to stream the Video signal of the TV to any device trough my network at home? Screensharing or miracast work the same way, dont they? There are Apps like the WEBOS app, where i can scroll trough my photos, so there must be a way to share my TV screen to another WIFI device in the network.

      If that works or if  there is any way to get the f*** video signal of my TV to the raspberry Pi my ambilight setup would work.

      so thanks to anyone who is into the topic and knows someting about it. 
      peace

      Hey there,  I have had a  OLED55B6P for ten months and I love it but

      I have a problem all a sudden, just today it starts to show a black screen with fire works every minutes if I don't press a button on the remote.

      I have no eco mode on, no power save modes on, TV firmwire is up to date, and tried turning off on and on the tv.

      anyone know how to fix?
