I'm interested in the OLED BX. I would like to know if it is compatible with a 5TB HDD (to be connected and fed through one of the TV USB port).
LG manuals recommend to connect up to 2TB storage HDDs but don't really state that higher capacity devices are not expected to work.
Then, I'm not sure how are things with DTS support. It seems that DTS decoding is no longer supported on the 2020 tv sets. But LG web page (updated 08/22/2020) titled "Support Video Playback File Type & Codec" still claims that "TV supports DTS audio codec when USB/HDMI video file playback offers it".
Can any of you shed some light on these ones?
Thank you so much.
It would be a great addition if OLED TVs had more options for subtitles color: like a dark gray, a very dark gray and maybe a transparency setting also. As it currently stands the subtitles ruin the watching experience a bit because they're too bright on HDR content :( The gray option nearly identical to white.
Also support for more subtitle formats such as PGS would be great, it would remove the need to have an external device for video playback and improve the overall experience.

since upgrading my LGOLED55C9PLA firmware to 05.00.03
every time I open a TV channel, I get the HOME menu bar at the bottom of the screen, not sure if a bug, or a bad idea, it has no disable option, feel I would like to roll back to the previous firmware, is this safe ? Is there an easy procedure ? Where do I get the previous firmware file from ?
Could some one give me a step by step guide to installing Apple TV app? I know that there are a lot of features on the LG web os, and I'm gradually finding my way around and trying to use Magic remote, but would be very grateful for a reply. I'm 65 and I'm not that techy. I long for the days when you would get a physical manual! Thanks.

Please consider adding a new menu for 2017 OLED's in HDR Game mode preset called "Static Tone Mapping" to picture options with a selection of 4000 nits (default) or 1000 nits.
The reason so many complain about dim HDR on 2017 OLED's is down to an overly tone mapped image, game consoles HDR titles are mastered in 1000 nits range, LG's default tone mapping is set to 4000 nits and because the consoles do not send any HDR metadata, LG tone maps 1000 nits content to 4000 nits. We know this is the cause as advanced tools like HD Fury Vertex can trick the TV into thinking it's 1000 nits content and give correct looking HDR (very complex thing to setup far beyond normal users).
This is entirely fixable by giving us a menu under game mode to force the TV to tone map to 1000 nits instead. If you read around online I'm almost certain this is what the special "Active HDR dynamic contrast = low" under Cinema mode does but this setting is not the same under any other preset. Maybe the "Active HDR" trick is not possible under game mode but forcing the TV to 1000 nits tone mapping is because the HD Fury Vertex can do it so the TV has the capability.
The 2018 models do not have this issue as they have "Dynamic Tone Mapping" under picture options so please throw us 2017 owners a bone on this, thanks.
(Yes game consoles could possible fix this by sending metadata but that's unlikely).

I bought LG webOS UM7100PLB and whenever I try to watch movies from my laptop (Macbook Pro Retina) on my tv the movies stutter and jam. It is still watchable but extremely annoying so I just plug HDMI cable to watch it. The problem is not also with movies when I scroll or do anything on my laptop, on my LG is slow and stutters as well.
Anybody knows what the problem would be? I attached a screenshot.
Thanks for your help,
I am having an issue with two of your tv's at my home with Apple HomeKit. I have a 55 inch and 65 inch OLED C9 TV. They are both compatible with HomeKit. Originally when I installed the TV's I had all sorts of issues with Apple HomeKit. For the Last 2 months Apple HomeKit has been working perfect with them. Now after a recent update to them via automatic updates, Apple HomeKit now has an issue viewing the tv on the HomeKit app remotely while the TV is OFF, It shows "No Response" in HomeKit. My TV's are hardwired via Ethernet cable. There are 4 states in HomeKit that are recognized for the TV: - Viewing the tv on the HomeKit app locally on the network while the TV is ON (This works in HomeKit and shows the tv as turned on) - Viewing the tv on the HomeKit app locally on the network while the TV is OFF (This works in HomeKit and shows the tv as turned off) - Viewing the tv on the HomeKit app remotely while the TV is ON (This works in HomeKit and shows the tv as turned on) - Viewing the tv on the HomeKit app remotely while the TV is OFF (This DOES NOT work in HomeKit and the TV shows in HomeKit as "No Response")
I've tried reseting the TV's and doing all sorts of things. Nothing has worked. I believe there is an issue with the latest firmware.
My new LG TV (65UM6900PUA) running WebOS 04.71.25 works great with HomeKit, with the exception that it is not reachable while it is turned off. If I try to turn it on in the home app, it says "No Response." I have changed the 'Turn on via Wi-Fi' setting to on, and it will turn on from the 'LG TV Plus' app, but not from the iOS home app. Is there a specific setting or something I need to change?
Can you not Airplay 2 to a supported LG TV when the TV is turned off? HomeKit works when the TV is on or off and Airplay works only when the TV is on.
My TV is a C9 series.
