I mean through the apps on the TV. Since there is no HBO app on LG TVs, but you can add HBO to your Hulu/Prime account, I'm curious if you can access HBO through the TVs Hulu or Prime app.

I was going to post this in the home theater section but I figured I would start here first. My Onkyo RZ 820 is connected to my tv via hdmi 2 ARC. When I go into device connector it says it’s connected and shows me the live feed as normal.

The problem I am running into is when I watch one of the built-in TV apps such as Vudu. It will load but I get no sound and the receiver continues to play the sound of the input so if my satellite is on it will continue playing the sound and not switch over to the tv. The LG sound out option is set to Audio out optical HDMI ARC but I get nothing. So as of now...the only way to watch one of the apps is to switch to the internal speaker and turn off my receiver.

Any idea what could be causing it to not play the sound through my HT? I feel like something with the Onkyo is overriding things but was hoping someone on here would have a solution. I figure switching the input to tv would help along with messing with the lg sound out functions and still nothing.

Guys I just bought a 55 inch C9 ! Where can I get help for calibration ? Do i even need it. I'm upgrading from Samsung regular 4k.

Also my receiver is from last year a Yamaha I’m not sure it has all the capabilities I need. I need Dolby atmos and vision right ?

You should be able to find some places online and even on YouTube to grab calibration settings and yup....you def want your receiver to have Dolby Vision/Atmos.

I used RTINGS settings and then adjusted from there.

why would your AVR need vision? what UHD player are you using, and do you have Atmos speakers?

According to the review on avforums, the C9, along with the Panasonic GZ950 are already at calibrated levels ootb and don't require calibrating. All delta errors on their testing came in under the visible threshold of 3.

Thanks guys . I値l leave the settings alone at first . Still haven稚 set it up.
I plan on getting some Dolby atmos Speakers to add to my 5.1. I also bought the new Panasonic 4K player.

Edit: bought a denon receiver for 350 the one that has Dolby capabilities that my Yamaha just from 2 years ago didn稚 have.

Excited to see how this will turn out .

Rtings.com measured a 3.46 dE on the white balance, with a color temperature of 5929K. Of course each individual C9 is going to have some variance, and there will probably be some variance between straight ootb and 2-300 hours later. I suspect most of the reported testing is done with very few hours on the panels.

Looking at purchasing either an LG E8 series or B9 series any advice? Is one better than the other?

Small differences. The B9 is more equal to last years C8 IIRC in terms hardware power.

The biggest one is that of connectivity - the 2019 models add support for some HDMI 2.1 features and Apple TV app via an update.

However, I do have a question.. Can you stream HBO through the Hulu or Amazon Prime Video app? I don't want to pay the money just to figure out that it doesn't work, but I know you can add-on HBO to your Hulu or Prime Video account. Could this be accessed through the Hulu or Prime Video app?
I got the HBO add-on through Amazon Prime and I can watch via the Prime app on my C8.

Well good folks, after decades of dreaming away, the day finally came this weekend where I went all in on an LG OLED (55" C9 model) with a yahmaha 207 soundbar to go with it (I live in an apartment so no sense in getting a full surround system with neighbors right next door). Once I get things set up and looking proper I'll show off some pictures.

Being in a terraced house but similarly thin walls, it's the subwoofer and not the surround that annoys people. So be careful with the 207's sub. It's a fine line between setting it at a volume you can appreciate while not causing endless thudding next door.

With what little I've used so far, I've gotten a fairly good amount of depth and kick out of the system without feeling like its too much, even if my neighbor is a loud **** anyway and could use a little annoyance.

Got the 05.10 40 update on my C8. Could not find any information, so decided to test Real Cinema with pangeddon Casino. I'm noticing no stutter what so ever

The image is so smooth and fluid.

I had an LCD for the longest time and did not have to worry about burn in at all. Now I have a OLED I have to be cognitive of it, most channels have a transparent logo, but CNN (which I don't watch hardy at all) has a big red CNN logo in the corner, it's almost as if CNN doesn't want OLED owners to watch their channel?

When will LG get the AppleTV app? The AppleTV app has been totally wasted on Samsung because Samsung TVs will not do Dolby Vision. And when will Disney+ App fix the Dolby Atmos problem? I can't get Dolby Atmos through the Disney+ App on my 2019 LG OLED that does Dolby Atmos... Fix it now Disney you multi billion dollar company...

CNN is the killer.
