Description Of Issue
Is there a simple way to get the Roon main screen on the TV?
Assuming you can’t run HDMI from your Windows PC to the TV, get a microsoft wireless hdmi adapter and use Windows-P to project the screen to the TV

If the TV has a web browser you can use the
Web Display feature. Alternatively, you can connect a Chromecast device and use that as a Display.
Personally I would avoid sending any media player display to an OLED TV, even though Roon’s is nice with soft edges, colours in harmony etc - I just don’t want a mostly static image going to my OLED for hours on end.
It does - but it only gets as far as showing the Roon logo and the display doesn’t appear in the Roon displays list (with my LG B7 OLED). I have had the same problem with a lot of local http addresses. I wonder if it might be an https thing as it seems happy enough with my NAS UI which is https.
This is as much as I can quickly find out about it -
Far better off using a chromecast for this kind of thing if possible, but I still would suggest you don’t use you OLED for this purpose due to image retention / burn-in risk.

I want to 2nd Adam’s concerns about leaving such a static image up on an OLED.
Chromecasts work simply for this and are cheap. I will try to see how my Samsung’s web browser behaves when I get home and test it out.
Thanks for the helpful comments. After the first comment, I bought a microsoft wireless hdmi adapter. However, due to subsequent comments, I will not leave a static image on the TV for any length of time.
I thought TVs could move The image about minutely (a couple of pixels) to avoid this issue. Perhaps I’m wrong…
They do, but that tiny amount of movement is not sufficient really.

I cannot wait for microLEDs to be a consumer reality… well an affordable reality.

Is this thread concerned about “burn-in”? Honest question: Is that still an issue with the later models? I thought that was a plasma thing.

It did affect plasma. LED isn’t so much an issue anymore, but OLED displays do suffer from burn of static images still.

See this long-term test about burn-in on OLED TVs…
This is a long-term 24/7 burn-in test on 3 TVs (OLED vs VA vs IPS). We aim to see how their performance change over time, especially with some static images such as network logos, black bars in movies, or video games with a fixed interface.
I agree , my new TV in my “spare” system has Bluetooth to the Soundbar, via ARC, plus a Chromecast
This means turn the screen off and off goes the soundbar
I eventually Wired the soundbar by HDMI so I could use the soundbar from Roon with or without picture
