Nope - pretty simple just need to be in the general area. You can also hit the enter button which will bring up the HDMI port number you’re using when watching content, the hit enter again and you get the info you are looking for.

There is no perfect display, quit looking for faults and enjoy

With LG blessing 2019 panels with Apple's AirPlay 2 some owners are pressuring LG to bring the compatibility to older sets including 2018 models; this is in contrast to Samsung and Visio who have said that they will upgrade older models even going back to 2017. There is even a petition

Haven't seen anyone else bring this up but I might have missed it.

I am a ATV user, as are many owners since our displays and the ATV work so well together, so it’s not something I’m getting excited about. More importantly it wasn’t part of the original specs or promised by LG, new models get new features, so while it would be a nice perk I don’t get the pressure. LCDs makers have to do something different since we’ve got the superior picture - by far

That really isn't the point, Samsung and Vizio will upgrade their older TV's and I like Apple but don't want to spend at least $150 on ATV.

Netflix did not remove anything from their app. LG just stubbornly refuses to put a simple Info button on their remote. I've had this issue going back to my 2014 LCD. My Sony TV has a Display button that shows the Netflix info.


The only way to get in on LG is to use their remote control app on your phone, or with a third party remote.

Maybe we will get lucky, but you missed my point that it was never promised. LG likely doesn’t feel the need to remove an incentive (abet small one IMO) for some to upgrade to the 9 series. We also don’t know if there is some chip limitation - remember LG develops their own which is one reason they have beat everyone to “full” 2.1 in 2019. So no one really has anything they can complain about. If you can afford an OLED, an ATV4k shouldn’t break the bank and it can save you $ in other ways. I continue to be impressed with the combo, look for deals or someone selling used. Worth it just for DV. Back to enjoying my display.

The "point" is that Samsung and Vizio never promised that that they would add AirPlay 2 either. But they are providing an update to the older purchasers and consumers of their TV's, this point should not be debatable.

You are correct facts are not debatable. It is a fact that Samsung and Vizio are updating older models. And it is a fact that LG isn't. If you don't like this fact you can sign the petition and/or vote with your dollars and not buy LG. But I don't see what complaining about it here accomplishes.

To truly feel like a cinema at 13 feet the minimum recommended screen size is 100 inches.


No I am not joking.

I just took it out of the box and plugged it into my cable box. Im noticing on sports (edit, everything, except it comes and goes), there's a quick stuttering sometimes on slow motion replays, or right before a camera cut. Or when 3D graphics play out, like an ESPN logo assembling and reassembling, the image slows down for a second then speeds up. Is this normal? Especially before camera cuts, especially during action scenes, it stutters badly.

Also how do you get rid of the red dot from the remote on the screen? And how do you see if HDR is on or what settings are on on the TV? And is it OK to change those early on owning the TV?

Edit: might be I have a weak signal for comcast here? They put in a signal booster but still said I dont have the strongest signal. I get both cable and internet through comcast. I tried cable through comcast TV box at 1080p, it went back and forth between steady movement, if at times making me wonder if the motion chip in the TV is just bad (but then other times, during animated stuff like ready player one action scene, looked just fantastic, but idk if its fair to judge off animated stuff?), to stuttering. Then I went through amazon streaking straight into the TV, which seems to be a stronger signal for me than the cable box, and at 4K i got constant stutter, at 1080p none, making me think the cable box signal is strong enough to do 1080p sometimes, but then slows down and starts stuttering (could this damage the TV? Please advise), while the internet signal is strong enough to do 1080p all the time, but not 4k at all without stuttering).

But even at 1080p through the internet, Im still getting it during fast movement, or a camera cut.

Also, I plugged it into hdmi port #4 by mistake, instead of #1. Could that be the problem?

Just to TL;DR, I opened up and started using the TV, and I got slowing/speeding up choppyness/stuttering/freezing on xfinity live TV, DVR, and on demand, I got constant stuttering on amazon streaming at 4k straight through xfinity internet into the TV, and the only halfway watchable content is amazon at 1080p, which doesnt speed up and then slow like xfinity cable, or stutter very visibly constantly and steadily like amazon at 4k, but which has minor consistent stutter at 1080p. When things are moving slow, it generally looks great 1080p amazon, but anything moves fast and it you can see it stuttering like a flipbook.

Is this the TV or my signal? The picture also looks unnatural at times, pixelated faces, image noise, sort of an artificial hotel TV look to the faces sometimes. Landscapes, effects, and animated stuff looks amazing until it moves, then the stuttering/motion issues rear their ugly head. What do I need to do to either fix the issue, or determine if the TV is the problem or the signal? And if it's the signal, is the TV at risk of being damaged from continuing to watch it before the signal is fixed? (NFL playoffs are tomorrow, comcast tech probably cant get here until days from now, etc).

Turn off motion eye care and the auto brightness stuff. Set input to technicolor mode, increase oled light to your liking.

Whatever picture mode you use turn off trumotion and the eye care/auto brightness first.

Or go to rtings.com and follow their settings.

Ok. Did you see my post yesterday which has a picture which answers this? You haven't replied to it, you've only replied to an argument about what your question was!

There's no way for the Gallery app to have an option to remove the "no signal" message when there's no signal. This is because the "no signal" message is NOT running the damn Gallery app! (That is the answer to @aerogems1 's point). The TV is running the "No Signal" app (a screen, but I'll call it an app to make it clearer - actually everything is an "app" in WebOS) which would have to do that.

The entire purpose of the "No Signal" app is to alert you to the problem/error that you have selected a HDMI input and you're not getting a signal. This absolutely definitely must have the "No Signal" message, that is its raison d'être !

There WILL be times that your TV has no signal. When this happens, LG allows you to choose between
  • "No signal message with a black background", or
  • "No signal message, but also display the pictures from the Gallery App's directory, and NB this is not 'running the real Gallery App' ".

Those are the ONLY two options
for "no signal". There is no "don't display a message, but instead, run the Gallery App" option.

If at other times you want to see the beautiful pictures in the Gallery App (along with - optionally - the music, or your own music), it's really simple: you just run the Gallery App!

If you don't want to see the "no signal" screen - in either of its two forms - all you have to do is don't select a HDMI input which isn't sending a signal to the TV. If you are using internal apps, this is pretty easy.

I repeat my recommendation for the other themes, which are downloadable as shown below. I have my Gallery App set to Quick Access 7, so when I hold down "7" on the remote it instantly runs Gallery. You've probably only seen a tiny fraction of them - the "no signal" App only accesses one directory.

Definitely not. I am 12' away from a 65" tv and it doesn't feel like cinema.

I don't want to feel as if I'm in a cinema. That means people talking throughout the film, people kicking the back of my chair, getting up in the middle of it, talking again, using mobile phones, and all the other things which make the cinema a horrible experience for those of us who actually paid to be there because we want to watch the film.

Hey all,

I just picked up the 65 C8 today. I love love love the picture but I do have one issue. My TV is on an entertainment center, we are not allowed to mount it to the walls. I have a Vizio sound bar that is almost the width of the TV so of course it had to sit right in front of the IR sensor. Is there any way I can get around that so I can turn my TV on and off without having to go buy new speakers? Thank you.

Tabletop mount. I just bought this one (Fitueyes) for a different TV and I'm very satisfied.

You could also use what I believe is called an IR Repeater to send the remote signal to your soundbar.

I myself use the firestick, I like the fact I can ad third party apps......
I had an amazon fire tv 2nd gen box. But it just can’t compare to the Apple TV. Amazons latest 4K boxes and sticks also just don’t compare I feel. Everything I had on the fire tv I have on my Apple TV. Mrmc takes the place of kodi and everything else mainstream is there in the apple App Store.

Click the Up arrow and then press the scroll wheel. If that doesn't work spin the wheel which will bring up the cursor then move it to the top left and click.


Netflix did not remove anything from their app. LG just stubbornly refuses to put a simple Info button on their remote. I've had this issue going back to my 2014 LCD.[IMG class=inlineimg]/forum/images/smilies/rolleyes.gif[/IMG] My Sony TV has a Display button that shows the Netflix info.


The only way to get in on LG is to use their remote control app on your phone, or with a third party remote.
Thanks! Would have never figured that out. How do you use the app to get Netflix info?

On the TV go to Network > LG Connect Apps and turn it On. On your phone download LG TV Plus. Make sure they are on the same wifi and the TV is turned on. Launch the app and press Connect Now. You can now control your TV from your phone including an Info button that works in Netflix.

Yeah I did that last night but the info button didn't do anything. Will try again.

Been watching more content on my C8 and it is truly a beautiful set. If my set didn't have a red tint, if motion was improved, and if lip-sync issues were fixed, it would be the perfect TV. Maybe I should have gone with the A9F but still happy with the LG since it was almost half the price.

Haven't seen anyone else bring this up but I might have missed it.
Good point if you don't want to spend more money on a new ATV. But, the processing power is what makes the ATV shine. I am more curious how the PQ will turn out accessing iTunes movies through a TV, for example, as compared to streaming the movies directly through the ATV.
