This stream auto-updates     

  1. Today
  2. To be honest, I tried Plex server on my Windows PC (not very powerful but it plays any movie I tried and it's rendering on the chromecast via VLC player). I removed Plex and just shared the folder with the movies, also I enabled media streaming on order to watch movies on any device. I use this as it's the simplest method I've found yet, and It's working great for 4-5 months now. I will try with better quality and higher bitrate movie. I haven't checked how much speed it needs but have played lots of movies without stutter, even tried simultaneous play on 1 TV, 1 ChromeCast, 1 laptop and one phone... I wonder how I didn't fry the router.
  3. Hello. I have a problem and whatever I do, the TV can't show subtitles unless they are embedded in the movie. I have movies on my PC, connected to the same network as the TV. The movies folder is shared and also I enabled streaming, so I can watch the movies from any device. I go to Photos & Videos (or I choose the PC stream directly from inputs menu), I go to the movie folder. When embedded subtitles everything is OK, but if subtitles are on .sub or .srt file the TV seem to ignore them. I open the TV options go to Accessibility turned the subtitles on, restarted the TV and PC, start the movie again and NOTHING the subtitle option is grayed! I even tried different character encoding for example ANSI or UTF-8 and NOTHING again!!! The subtitles are on the same folder, with exactly the same name - example: Name of movie file "Tom Clancys The Division Agent Origins.mkv" Name of subtitle file "Tom Clancys The Division Agent Origins.srt" (even if I change it to .sub) Please LG dev team, FIX THIS crap, or I (and many others that want damned subtitles) will never buy your TVs again... PS: I have tried dozen of ways to watch the movie, but no success with subtitles. The only way to have subtitles is to embed them with program or to use HDMI cable and play the movie from the PC. THIS IS RIDICULOUS, IT'S 2019 FFS :@ I AM SO PISSED!!!

  7. Hello, i'm new on this forum and I buyed an LG 55C8 Tv. I'm italian and I have problems to set the DVB-S signal. The tv report a series of satellite and has setted as free satellite only TVSat that is the free provider of my zone including rai and mediaset. I have not a tvsat smartcam and my system is setted on free wifi on hotbird 6, 7a or 8. TVSat is on Hotbird 13, so the signal is not received. I tried to set the satellite custom settings from myself but I have no luck. I post the picture of my old tv with the correct settings, if anyone want to help me i will be grateful. Thanks in advance.
  8. Probably your sound output is not set right. Go to settings and change audio output to auto. It might be set to PCM or something else. if still doesn’t work after changing to auto, restart the tv and soundbar fro mains. still not, then press the “AD” button on the magic remote while HDMI 2/3 whichever is ARC is selected as source. You’ll get a menu with power button. Click that and the soundbar will power off. Then after 2 mins do the same to power on again. These should work definitely.
  9. Since Zee5 App is not available on the play store I am unable to play any media on LG Smart TV runs on WebOS. I have written to Zee5 in regards the same and they mentioned that they are aware of this issue and working on it and it would be available in a month. It has been 3 months past as of June 24, 2019 but the Zee5 App is not available.
  10. Karan, thank you for your response. I tried your solution, but for some reason, it didn't work for me. I removed the optical cable and connected the HDMI cable to the TV's HDMI (ARC) port and the soundbar's ARC port. Also, via the SOUND settings menu, I set the Sound Out to HDMI (ARC). According to the settings display, this also automatically turned on the LG Simpliink. Unfortunately, something is amiss because I could get no sound from the sound bar.The volume buttons on the magic remote now controlled the the soundbar volume indicator (which was not the case before the connection change), but no sound was produced. Any further suggestions?
  11. Dear LG WebOS team, Zee5, Hotstar, YuppTV and other apps are available on your platform but there is lack of TataSky to watch online in LG SmartTv. Requesting for an update and release of TataSky app to enjoy TataSky during monsoon when most of the STB receptions went off-air. Regards

  15. Please add a gray subtitle font in photos and videos app for oled tv
  16. I would look at the following things:- If you have many apps installed I would consider uninstalling all but the most used apps. Make sure you turn your TV completely off when you shutdown. Go to Settings/General/Quick Start++ Turn (OFF). This will make sure your TV turns off properly and doesn't just go to sleep. (I think some apps may not play well with memory and will need to shutdown occasionally to re-coup memory) If you use your TV to record shows - it will use the TV's memory unless you have a USB drive/stick plugged in. Delete any recorded shows. Hope this helps... Cheers
  17. It is as hard as ESPN getting some programmers to create it, so not very.
  18. You need to remove the optical cable and connect an HDMI cable from the tv’s HDMI ( ARC) port to the soundbar’s ARC port. After doing that turn on LG Simplink in the settings. Then you will be able to control the soundbar from the magic remote. You can also add the device using device connector -> add device. Simplink is basically HDMI CEC that allows control of connected HDMI devices. Optical cable is just an audio output cable and cannot be used to control the other device. Get a decent HDMI cable.
  19. The app should be available for your WebOS version.You should search for the app in the LG Content Store.If you find it click on it and click on install. If you don’t find it, then write to [email protected] and ask them.

    How hard is it for you to add an ESPN App so I don't have to buy a stupid Apple TV?
  21. Hi, The Web OS installed in my 55" LG Smart TV is 5.80.35. Is Hotstar app available in this version?. How to install Hotstar in this version. Regards, Venkatachalam.M
  22. I though mezzmo was a server / client solution with mezzmo software running on the TV in addition to the server software. It looks like mezzmo is just the dlna server part like minidlna is. I think there is no samba use anywhere in your setup, it is dlna only. You use the LG built-in dlna browser and play files with the LG built-in video player like I do. So, if you don't want to use wifi : Have built-in ethernet and usb adapter ethernet cable plugged on ethernet switch to be able to browse the dlna server file list any time. Use built-in ethernet connection alone and plug the usb adapter only when playing media files with high bitrates with peaks superior to 100Mbit/s. Any of theses solutions are better than having to use an ntfs formatted HDD plugged on usb port with media files knowing ext4 is not supported on TV even though it runs linux For information, the chipset in the usb adapter is apparently a Realtek/RTL8153 Thanks again for having shared your experience
  23. Just for your amusement this is an example of the level of control I have on ALL LG TVs: the menus you see are custom made.
  24. 3. That is correct this transfer rate is possible with only the usb network card. I am using the TV built-in video player and Mezzmo lists the files to TV. Somehow the usb only setting makes the media server disappear after some time. I have wifi+usb setting now and this will allow the wifi to scan the local network and stream the video with usb network card. I turned-off the TV for more than 10 minutes and turned it on again to make this setting work successfully for three times continuously now.
