Re: LG 55" OLED - I'm hooked

That OLED LG: Can one put a USB flashdrive with pictures on it, and cycle through to watch them, (using LG's controller) or does it have to be hooked on to a laptop with an appropriate program?

All brand TVs now seem to have the USB feature. Put in a USB flashdrive stick and it will display the thumbnails for you to choose what to look at, or initiate a slide show with adjustable delays etc. No need to connect a computer to the screen.

If you select video files then it will play those also, but some sets may be fussy about what type of video file that they will play. Easy to convert on the computer to something that the TV can handle.

If some storage device is on a home network then the TV can access that as well, best to do it wired, but WiFi works as well, but may be a bit slower to load in some cases.

My older LG 4K (not OLED) uses WebOS as its operating system, so maybe reading up on that may help as to what it can do. See https://www.lg.com/us/experience-tvs/smart-tv/use and http://webosose.org/
