Answer: 
The following statement found in an earlier answer does not correspond to the answer I was given by LG that Pandora was included in LG DVD/Blueray machines (no speakers at all with them):
"Pandora is not specified for this TV. Since Pandora is an Internet Radio, that is a feature that is generally found on our products with actual stereo speakers, such as a Home Theater System."
What I don't understand is LG shows Pandora as being a feature on this TV on there web info site and then they say it is not, and wont be available on this TV. I for one am very disappointed.

Answer: 
This television was designed for operations with Yahoo! TV Widgets, Netflix Instant Streaming, Vudu Streaming, YouTube, and Picasa. Skype should also be available, once the unit is connected to the LG Skype camera. If this camera has not been attached, then this is likely what the “Coming Soon” box is. Pandora is not specified for this TV. Since Pandora is an Internet Radio, that is a feature that is generally found on our products with actual stereo speakers, such as a Home Theater System.

Answer: 
Some additional information will be needed to make a determination for this matter, such as “how long into the playback does the unit wait before shutting down”. Please contact our Customer Interactive Center for troubleshooting. They can be reached at 800-243-0000.

Answer: 
By itself, your television cannot connect to your wireless network. It will require the optional wireless LAN adaptor that is listed on page 11 of your owner’s manual. Once connected, this TV can display and play many types of movie, photo and music files from your DLNA server and has been certified by DLNA for photos. Additional information can be found in your owner’s manual, on pages 98-101.
