Hi all,

 

 

I have just recently upgraded my 10yr old 32" Sony Bravia and bought the LG 55" B6 OLED which I have had my eye on for some time. I am completely unfamiliar with my Smart TV functions and am keen to get the most out of mine.

 

 

The WebOS 3.0 is amazing and i love the magic remote. However I am struggling to find simple apps like an online Radio app that lets me play content that I can otherwise stream on a web browser. Unfortunately for some reason, the built in web browser does not want to stream any audio content from radio stations.

 

 

QUESTIONS:

 

-Are there any known Live Radio apps that can be installed onto this TV with NZ content, or codecs that can be installed that will allow the web browser to function the way I want it to?

 

 

-Is there a way I can workout the Input Lag, and therefore calibrate (with appropriate settings) to reduce Input Lag for when gaming? I also seem to remember Input Lag being affected by HDR gaming (not that i currently utilise this), but in the future is there a way to combat this, or is it so significant that gaming with HDR enabled is not worth it?

 

 

Also any other tips and tricks with WebOS / Smart Tv functions / OLED specific settings, would be appreciated.

As I understand it, one issue with HDR gaming lag is that when recieving an input HDR signal from a game, the TV can only access the HDR-type picture modes - which all have relatively high input lag. Non-HDR content can use a low-lag Game mode. Good news is there is an update in the works that will enable a HDR Game mode, to mitigate this issue (http://www.forbes.com/sites/johnarcher/2016/12/14/lg-expands-roll-out-of-tv-hdr-game-mode/#507fdb643fdd)

I'm not sure what you mean by calibrate for input lag, but some people are more susceptible to the lag, and therefore find it more objectionable. If you are happily gaming now (in SDR games) then you won't have anything to worry about, once the HDR Game mode becomes available.

I don't have one. But a quick google suggests Pandora, Spotify, iHeartRadio have apps.
