I don't think so. Nowhere in the documentation states ARC and on other LG TVs, ARC is labeled on the HDMI port. There is also no ARC settings I have been able to find. If you want to send audio to an A/V, then you need to use an optical cable. My setup is, all devices go to the TV (HDMI) , and audio goes out to A/V via optical. I tried all devices to A/V and out to TV, but it does not change the source (audio) when you go to Google TV and play music or youtube videos. Hope that helps!

WiDi and Miracast do not work on this TV. Plus, in order to use smart share, you need the silly app which is only supported on LG phones. However, it is not supported on the Nexus 4, oddly enough.

WIDI is NOT supported even though the answer says it is. I own the TV and could not make it work and asked LG via chat and they said WIDI is not supported on Google TV.

Google remote app is good but that is NOT specific to this model TV, I mean it doesn't have controls for the 3D related features that TV has.

I see there is another LG remote Control App in the Google Play Store (And also in the Apple app store) but that doesn't support this model (55GA7900). Why didn't LG remote control app does not support this model?

I don't think so. But you can use the Google TV remote app or Able Remote app. Both are excellent apps. This will require a wifi connection. You can also use an universal remote to control basic functions, but not all. Hope that helps!

We appreciate your interest in this television and our other compatible products. At this time, our only current model 3D BluRay players are also Smart TV enabled. We would recommend either the BP530 or the BP730. These players can be reviewed on our website at http://www.lg.com/us/blu-ray-player.... All of our current 3D Home Theater Systems also are Smart TV enabled. They can be viewed at http://www.lg.com/us/home-theater-s.... If you choose a Home Theater System, intending to use the Audio Return Channel (ARC) feature for connecting the audio, then you will need one of the latest, high quality, version 1.4 HDMI cables or better.
