What people are saying

Rated 1 out of 5 by from 7 months I bought this television 7 months ago. It worked great for 7 months. This week it stopped working. It's completely dead. I've tried all the troubleshooting instructions, with no luck.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Freatures I brought this 3 months ago. So glad I did. The colors are exceptional. Bright, crisp and clear. All of my streaming services are available. Netflix, Amazon prime video, Hulu, spotify even Redbox! Bluetooth enabled, nice internet browser and it voice activated. Lots and lots of additional features. Good buy

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love love love this tv! Bought this to upgrade 4k that I had. I thought I had it good before. I was wrong. Everything just pops on this tv. It looks unreal. I bought it to play games in which is what I primarily do with my tv. My Xbox One X and PS 4 Pro are no longer held back by my old sub par tv.

What peripheral devices work with Apple air-play 2 ; Doe's it work with LG and Android based device and windows-10, or just Apple based products ?

Asked by: Good2Ride
AirPlay 2 lets you effortlessly share movies, TV shows, photos and more on the LG Nano 8 Series 4K 55 inch Class Smart UHD NanoCell TV w/ AI ThinQ® (54.6'' Diag), Model # 55SM8100AUA right from your iPhone, iPad or Mac. You can even play music on other AirPlay 2-compatible speakers in your home at the same time - all in sync. AirPlay is Apple's proprietary system that allows you to stream audio or video from an Apple source to another device over a home network. AirPlay 2 expands these capabilities and brings iTunes to TVs, and multiroom to speakers. As mentioned earlier, AirPlay 2 also adds the ability to stream music to multiple audio devices at the same time. You could use it to call up a song on your iPhone and play it in multiple rooms around the house simultaneously or pick and choose which AirPlay speaker to stream to The two main pieces of Apple hardware that are specifically AirPlay 2 compatible are the Apple TV and the Apple HomePod. But AirPlay 2 will also work with recent iPhones, iPads and Mac computers. iOS 12 is the latest version and it includes both multiroom capabilities and HomePod stereo pairing. Any device that can run Apple iOS 12 should be compatible with AirPlay 2. If you have an Apple TV (2015) or the Apple TV 4K running TVOS 11.4 or greater, it can also act as an AirPlay 2 endpoint. Additionally, In order to control multiple speakers/devices via your Mac or PC, you'll need iTunes 12.8 or greater. Apple has listed which specific devices support AirPlay 2 with select LG TVs ((2019 OLED, NanoCell SM9X series, NanoCell SM8X series, UHD UM7X series) being among those listed...^IFV

My 55SM8100 panel is broken can I replace an ordinary LCD panel not a nanocell panel?

Asked by: Diko
No, a different panel cannot be installed in the 55SM8100. It would need the correct panel designed for use with the particular model.
