What happened to the HBO app (not available in LG ?  I cannot find answers anywhere.  I have an HBO account and would love to use it with my OLED TV.  

Thanks.

Hi,

I solved this issue by simply purchasing an Amazon Firestick 4K.  While it doesn't support Dolby Atmos* on Netflix, it does on some Prime selections. It  supports Dolby Vision*, too (like your OLED) and it works seamlessly. It has nearly unlimited apps available, including HBO NOW, and has twice as much storage (for apps) than your LG TV. I like mine so much, I purchased a second one on Prime Day at half price for my road trips. Once you register it with Amazon, you can stick it in any TV with an HDMI input.  Hope this helps!

Mr. Black

* HBO currently only streams in HD 5.1, so this is not an issue for your question

      Hi guys. 
      I had the SHAHID app on my LG Smart TV. But it kept on refusing to open the plus shows though I am a plus subscriber. I tried to remove the app and reinstall it again. And I didn't find it on the store anymore. How can I fix this?

      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 have two LG OLEDs.  I have given each a name in the WebOS.  Occasionally when a TV is powered on, I am first requested to enter the TV name along with the dialog to enter text with  the on screen keyboard.  I can enter anything and it is accepted and I get past that screen and then normal operation follows.  This happens on both TVs albeit only occasionally.   It is a real nuisance when this happens and I see no need for this.
      Has anyone else experienced this and if so, is there a solution to disable this behavior?  Is there some setting that I have missed?
      Thanks,
      Bobby

      Screen flickers real bad and seems to be getting worse over time should I make a claim it is only month and half old or this normal, now it is doing this every few minutes?

      The latest FW 05.80.55 has completely messed up my tv and I have rolled back to 05.80.15 successfully. However I would like to have my TV on FW 05.80.35 since I was very happy with that one.
      Anyone who has a copy of that one, 05.80.35?
