  1. The lack of FLAC is a bit odd as it is 'free software' and as such can be implemented without licensing costs. VOBSUB seem to be more of an issue. Unlike a .srt subtitle file which are plain text, the .idx & .sub files of VOBSUB are a combination of text and graphics. Perhaps LG do not want to not want to spend the time and resources developing a webOS system for what is essentially a Windows platform solution. That said you could use the LG suggestions form to nudge them in to action, a link to which can be found elsewhere on the forum.
  2. lg 43uh650t-tb

    You are probably going to have to set the unit back to factory defaults: http://ccm.net/faq/40732-reset-an-lg-smart-tv-to-factory-settings
  3. I have tested the same on my UH650V (FW V. 04.30.40) and subtitles are working. Ensure that the file names of the video & subtitle files are the same, barring the file extension of course. Many of the subtitle files from my Plex server are formatted with the language version, i.e. A Fish Called Wanda.eng.srt which will not display, removing the .eng allows it to display.
  4. As detailed in the following forum link LG has an official suggestions form:
  5. As far as I can ascertain webOS does not have a native PDF viewer, the only way to view such a document is to follow the steps in this thread:
  6. Firstly, excellent work on the correct layout of webOS, so many users get it wrong (personal gripe, long time user starting with the Pre). Secondly, I found a couple of pages that might help : http://www.lg.com/ca_en/support/product-help/CT20098005-1437132198966-usb-connection-requirements-general-operation http://webostv.developer.lge.com/discover/specifications/webos-tv-platform/supported-media-formats/
  7. First thing people are going to want to know is the exact model of your television before anyone can offer their sage advice.
  8. You cannot install Flash it is supported neither by LG or Adobe for webOS.
  9. This set of actions is Plex talking to the television to find out what resolution, whether it has to do backend encoding/rendering etc.
  10. Here is the product support page for your television: http://www.lg.com/us/support-product/lg-55EC9300 There is a firmware update from 12/02/2016, whether it is webOS 3 it does not say, you will just have to download it and see what happens.
  11. Take a look at this article: https://www.quora.com/How-can-I-look-up-whether-my-TV-supports-Miracast It contains a link to a site that will allow you to search for your TV to see if it is compatible. If your model number is not found try just putting in the first four characters as your specific model my not be listed but the overall model range may be. The article also guides you through the process of casting from your mobile device to a television.
  12. I think the answer is no, but if you search this forum and the web there are people who have asked the same question. Maybe one of them has found an answer.
  13. I thought this model already ran v.3
  14. I am going to guess you meant Flash Player, and if that is the case unfortunately it is not an installable item under webOS. You will need to badger Hotstar and/or LG until they produce an application for the webOS platform. Sadly any application that is reliant on Flash Player is doomed to failure due to the regularity that Adobe update it and screw things up.
