HBOMAX won’t mirror picture


Question

I set up airplay on our LG smart TV and it works just fine for most things. However, when I try to mirror something from HBO max from the iPad, I get sound on the LG TV but no picture. It’s the same for anything I try to mirror from HBO max, not just a particular show. This is the first time I’ve run across this. Most services mirror just fine. Any ideas? Thanks.

@Gshep1 This may be a copyright (DRM) thing within the HBO App, to stop users "pirating" by streaming to a copying device. I know you only want to "mirror", but maybe HBO have found clever users abusing that function, so have had to block it. If most Airplay or Airplay2 functions are working, then it sounds like you are NOT suffering from the "broadcast discovery" TCP packets issue, where some routers do NOT pass these between LAN connected devices and WiFi connected devices. If your TV is ALREADY on the same WiFi band as the iPAD (i.e. both on the 2.4GHz band, or boeth on the 5GHz band), then it is almost certainly the DRM blocking that is causing the issue. If the TV is on a LAN connected Internet cable, try disconnecting the cable, and enable the WiFi, try it on the same WiFi SSID as the iPAD.

      My new gallery series OLED TV died after less than two months. For weeks now, I have been calling LG support for help. The have created multiple repair tickets, but they have not been to get a repair technician out to fix the problem.
      LG keeps trying to outsource the repair to 3rd party service companies. Does anyone know how I can find a local tech that works for LG to come out and fix it?
      If not, what recourse do I have?
      Thank you.

      Hi,
      I'd like to easily stream/cast some movie files (.mkv, .mp4 etc...) on my Ubuntu 21.04 PC to a LG Smart TV having WebOS 4.9.x.
      Both TV and PC are connected on the same LAN network via ethernet cable!
      My router does not provide any UPnP feature!
      I tried to use (with no success):
      - Kodi - enabled UPnP/DLNA and shared my library, then right clicked on a movie and ran "Play using", selected "TV" but I was not able to see anything on my LG TV (i went to Movies and Photos and did not see any remote device or other stuff) (does this method nroamlly work? Maybe there is something wrong with my Kodi / Router configuration? What screen do I have to access on the LG TV to see the DLNA devices?)
      - Integrated Ubuntu "Media Sharing" (see https://ubuntuhandbook.org/index.php/2020/04/home-media-server-ubuntu-2004/) - same as above, I could not see any device from the TV when this option is enabled
      - VLC UPnP feature - same as above
      What options do I have, without buying any additional device like Chromecast, Raspberry PI etc...?

      Recently bought an LG Smart TV in Ireland. 43Nano796NE .
       
      There is a button on the remote for Google assistant. Nothing happens when it is pressed. I downloaded the ThinQ app and have paired it to the TV and Google home assistant. I can turn on off the TV via Google and at best turn on Netflix via Google . Just wondering am I missing something else here given the button on the remote doesn't do anything? There is  also a buttonn for opening up Disney plus and that doesn't open up the app. The app button for Netflix and Prime does work. Maybe a first world problem only. Apps for Ireland are not great, would love to be able to download Virgin media player and All Four.
