  1. Well, I have given up on LG's WebOS mainly because there are few apps, badly implemented. Instead I bought an Amazon FireStick 4k, side loaded Kodi + Plex addon and now it works like a charm. The interface has virtually no lag (like WebOS has) and WiFi (ac) speed is grater than 200 mbps. And there are plenty of apps well implemented. Just an example - Plex official app on WebOS is almost unusable, it transcodes 4k video content unnecessarily, but the same content would direct play on Plex android app... LG should move to Android! IMO WebOS is exactly like Windows Mobile, a dead OS.
  2. Hello, I have a weird issue with movies encoded in 3840x2076 resolution on my LG EG920V (WbOS2.0). Somehow the TV doesn't properly handle this resolution. As you can see in the attached picture half the screen is noisy with a green horizontal bar at the bottom. I tried to play the same file (.mkv) from PLEX (Xplay/Plex), EMBY(Emby Theatre/Screenplay), as well as directly from USB HDD - the same result. The conclusion, TV's internal player can't handle 2076 vertical resolution. As an workaround I added horizontal black bars on top/bottom (42px each) with ffmpeg, but it's a very very s
  3. Hi guys, Could someone with an older WebOS2.0 TV please check if this Cable Matters adapter works properly? Many thanks,
  4. Has anyone tried this solution with external USB adapter (Cable matters or other brand) on a WebOS2 TV? Kind regards,
  5. Hello, What player do you use on this Android box? Does it support HDR? Regards,
  6. Well, I have finally managed to increase the network throughput to at least 150 Mbps, which is fair enough for my initial problem - 4k video content with bitrates grater than 100 Mbps. My good old wireless router (DIR-600) had behaved very weird in the last weeks - the internet speed on my computer was very slow, only half the bandwidth I receive from my ISP. So I decided to buy a new dual band router (Archer-C5 V4) and now the computer receives full internet speed, and surprisingly the TV (only wifi N) connects to the 5 Ghz network at speeds > 100 Mbps. Now the move in case (American
  7. Different WebOS, different behaviour maybe. I won't update until the issue is sorted up by LG or developer. Is 4k direct play still working after the update?
  8. I guess you are among the lucky ones, in my content store for webos2.0 I currently have 2.189.171 available for download. This version was reported as broken by many users. What version of webos do you have?
  9. Hello @nemilose, could you please tell me what is the current version of your XPLAY?
  10. Hi Since the developer (xplay.itkey.ru) didn't solve the issue yet, I have decided to block the whole LG Content Store at DNS level (pi-holed). Now when I try to open the Content Store it says it has no network connectivity, which is the desired behaviour for now. But even so, when I open the app I still have two options, update and launch. The question is what would happen if I choose update, the new version is already downloaded on the TV and just starts installing, or the TV first try to download the update from the Content Store? Best regards,
  11. Yes it is, with XPLAY you can direct stream/play (without transcoding) 4k content, while PLEX official app cannot do that. My PLEX server runs on a raspberry pi3, so transcoding is out of the question... Kind regards,
  12. Hello, I've read on the XPLAY forum about various problems with the latest version, so I decided to postpone the update until the issues are solved. I really don't know where the problem is but the developer said: "They have approved a quiet old version what has no online update functionality and the only way to fix anything or add new functionality is to send it to LG QA team … but they arrrrr soooooo much slow. Ive send them (on several days ago) version latest dev version with online update functionality. It will allow me to react to bugs much faster …" My setup
  13. I prefer to watch my video content from Plex Server + XPLAY (LG doesn't support 4k over DLNA, another stupid limitation) instead of Blu-ray player. I don't have a powerful computer to do transcoding, so when I buy a 4k blu-ray I simply remux it to mkv and add it to the Plex library - my files are very big, 50-60 GB per movie. Some of them have bitrate peaks which exceed 100mbps. My Plex box (linux) is capable of streaming higher bitrates, the TV itself is able to process these bitrates but is limited by the speed of the network adapter. The same movie would play without stuttering from USB3.0
  14. Hello, Is there any way of installing an usb gigabit network adapter on a webos smart TV? The builtin wired adapter is only 100mbps (on a 2000$+ TV, shame on you LG!!!) while the wifi (N) is very poor, with the router at 1m from TV it only gets half the bandwidth of the wired network. Anyway the wired network maxes out near 100mbps but I need more bandwidth as I have 4k video content with bitrates grater than 100mbps which I cannot stream without stuttering to TV through XPLAY/PLEX. Kind regards,
  15. Few days ago I received my new 55EG920V 4k OLED TV 2015 model with passive 3D and after a brief testing it turned out that 4k over DLNA isn't supported in WebOS2.0 - LG customer support already confirmed that. Of course, this limitation isn’t explicitly stated anywhere, neither in the the owner’s manual nor on the LG official website. The same MKV HEVC file would play well enough through USB, but not DLNA. So for the unlucky WebOS2.0 4k TV owners, the only way of playing 4k content from the home network is through USB. This is mind blowing, in the high speed internet connections and gigabyte e
