Anyone have any success getting a Slingbox 500 to work with a LG OLED tv that has no component inputs on it? I am using a HD splitter that is supposed to work...and does when I'm setting up the Slingbox settings, (HDMI cables into it from set-top box and out to TV, plus component cables from splitter to Slingbox) but when I go to watch Live tv, the screen is black and says No HDMI. I'm stumped. Any suggestions?
LG has unveiled the pricing and release plans for some of its 2019 OLED TV lineup, basically mirroring the company’s playbook from last year. These are some of the very best TVs you can buy, so LG is continuing to price them as such.
The 2019 C9 (65-inch, 55-inch) and E9 (65-inch) series TVs will start shipping in April. The 77-inch model of the C9 and 55-inch E9 will hit stores a bit later in May and June, respectively. And this year’s update to LG’s “wallpaper” TVs — to be available in 65- and 75-inch sizes — will come out in June.
(If you were wondering, no, there’s still not at a firm price or release date for the stunning rollable TV.)
LG’s TV branding can be pretty confusing, but all of these TVs fundamentally share the same display quality and the latest features that the company first announced at CES: that includes AirPlay 2, built-in support for Amazon Alexa voice commands, improved image processing, and more. LG claims itself as the only major TV manufacturer offering both Alexa and Google Assistant out of the box, whereas some other brands (Samsung, Roku TVs, etc.) only support them through external speakers you might already own.
The TVs also feature HDMI 2.1, future-proofing them for any content (and just about any frame rate) that might be coming down the pipe over the next several years.
But they differ in what’s around the screen; the E9 series has glass on all four sides, most noticeably at the bottom. The C9 doesn’t get quite that fancy. And the W9 (wallpaper) series puts the same display into a design that’s almost unfathomably thin.
LG has said only its 2019 TVs will gain AirPlay 2 and HomeKit functionality; other TV makers including Samsung and Vizio are also adding the useful feature to their older sets. It’d be nice if the company would reconsider this, but I’m not holding out hope.
Below are the prices and release months for the C9, E9, and W9 LG OLED ThinQ TVs. I’d advise against buying them soon after launch, as LG’s OLEDs tend to see big markdowns near the end of the year.
LG C9 OLED 4K TVs:
77-inch: $6,999 (May)
65-inch: $3,499 (April)
55-inch: $2,499 (April)
LG E9 OLED 4K TVs:
65-inch: $4,299 (April)
55-inch: $3,299 (June)
LG W9 Wallpaper OLED 4K TVs:
77-inch: $12,999 (June)
65-inch: $6,999 (June)

Seems as if LG Server is down somewhaere, but no info on Web indicating this is the case as of this date (April 16, 2017)
Email to Support resulted in email return saying problem difficult to solve via email; call Support (which I will do Monday).
Similar problems seem to have faced customers in past with no apparent solution, but problem just disappears.
Anyone faced this problem and solved it with specific steps to remedy?
How do I raise a feature request for WebOS?
I got a replacement for my 43UJ752T Nanocell with 55SM8100 Nanocell however I noticed that on WebOS 4.7 I am no longer able to adjust the screen like I was able to do on my old TV for applications like Youtube, Netflix, Amazon Prime etc, the aspect stays at 'Original'
With the option to adjust the aspect ratio I was able to get rid of black borders for some movies and avoid seeing the bleed from Edge LEDs at the bottom. Now with that option gone I need to keep seeing the white patches throughout the movie, Annoying!

The Amazon app freezes with white circle forever every once in while. Usually after long pause or switching to another episode within a series. It also has major playback issues with CBS ALL ACCESS.
Sound is surround sound without the front channels. Only hear music no dialogue.
Only fix for both is going into so many other apps LG finally closes Amazon app. Power cycle and simply switching to Netflix doesn't work.
I don't understand why the Netflix app is so awesome and all other apps have issues. The UI, playback etc suck on other apps. Small but meaningful is the ffw and rewind. In Netflix simply arrow left or right simple with nice preview. All other apps have a clunky stupid button you have to arrow to select then arrow back to play. Try to jump back 10sec or so in Hulu, Amazon, sling etc... It's a pain in the ass.
