How can I display content resolution information while using the Netflix app? For example, when using an HDMI input I can click the wheel mouse on the remote and an information box displays in the upper left corner. How can I see same info for Netflix?

Asked by: NewLGUser
The only way to see the resolution of what you are watching on Netflix would be prior to starting the content (HD, 4K, HDR, Dolby Vision, etc. would display on in the title information). There isn’t any way to get the resolution information once the content starts playing. ^AC

What size wall mount screws does it take?   M8x45 for example 

Asked by: Scott12346
The screws that will fit into the bolt holes in the back of the 65SJ8500 have a metric measurement which is given as M(?) x L(?) where "M" is the width of the screw and "L" is the length. The length will vary depending on the depth of the wall mount you're using. Typically, if the wall mount you're using is a VESA Compliant Wall Mount that supports the same A x B VESA Wall Mount Pattern for the TV, which is 300 x 300 (mm) for this TV, it should have come with the correct VESA Standard screws that would fit into the TV. The width of the screws that will fit into this TV is M6 (i.e. 6 mm). You can measure the length of the screws you currently have to determine what length you will need or you can check the instruction manual for your wall mount for that. Most hardware stores will carry these screws. ^CP

Can I use a Sonos sound system with this tv?

Asked by: Sabatier
HI Sabatier. Unfortunately, without knowledge of which SONOS sound system you are inquiring about, we cannot specifically say how you would connect it to the LG SUPER UHD 4K HDR Smart LED TV - 55" Class (54.6" Diag), Model # 55SJ8500. However, the Sonos wireless sound system works by connecting one single speaker to your home network, then adding more Sonos units (up to a maximum of 32, dotted around the house) into the mix using a dedicated secure wireless mesh network known as Sonosnet. The SONOS Sound System comprises a number of devices such as Sonos Play:1, SONOS Play:3, Sonos Play:5, Sonos Playbar, Sonos Playbase and the Sonos Sub, all of which are designed to work with a variety of products from various manufacturers. We recommend that you contact SONOS for any inquiries about connecting it to your home network so that it can work in conjunction with the 55SJ8500...^IFV
