    gigabit ethernet on smart TV

    Absolutely agree. The market for people streaming local content at higher bandwidth than 100Mbps is very slim, and if you deducts the pirates I believe it approximates zero. So LG probably decided to skip gigabit in the believing that those watching high bandwidth content would do so using blue ray. But the original question about USB2 Ethernet dongles is interesting. USB2 at 400Mbps would be more than enough, and we have all seen devices with “secret” drivers. Like for instance the Chromecast with USB2ethernet support. I unfortunately only have a 100Mbps usb dongle and a thunderbolt. But if anybody has a gigabit USB dongle please try it out and report back.

    But he is talking abort streaming local content, it is not unlikely to be much higher bandwidth: look at the blue ray standard: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ultra_HD_Blu-ray I LOVE my OLED and WebOS, but I do agree a 100Mbps connection is outdated on a 4K high end TV.

    "Mobile TV On" doesn't work

    I have observed the same thing. Personally I don't care to mush about being able to turn on the TV from the app, but I want to be able to turn it on from my Home Automation (OpenHAB). I have found out it does react to Wake On Lan packages, so that is what I'm using. There is a number of WOL app for smartphones, you can use one of those I you want to turn it on from your phone. Agreed LG should have WOL in there app...

    Reading exFAT formatted USB storage devices

    I too came here because I wan't to access some large file on a USB drive from my LG WebOS TV, and I use Mac so I can't use NTFS. But I must clear up some misunderstandings: exFAT IS NOT STANDARD on most Linux distributions! Actually it dosen't even have a kernel module (only Fuse userland module) because exFAT is a licensed, close source and closed protocol. It's not difficult to find this information, just look at wikipedia: "exFAT (Extended File Allocation Table) is a Microsoft file system introduced in 2006 optimized for flash memory such as USB flash drives and SD cards.[5] It is proprietary and Microsoft owns patents on several elements of its design" It was meant to replace FAT32 because of the filesize limitations. NTFS was doomed not feasible for small removable devices. But the biggest problem with NTFS is actually that it is closed source and support in other OS'es than windows is either made by: a. buying and signing an NDA with Microsoft or b. reversed engineered. Which is the solution Linux and Mac has chosen, and the reason Mac (and earlier Linux) defaulted to mount readonly. They didn't want to risk destroying anything. So while I do agree with Microsoft that we need a new filesystem. I don't think a proprietary filesystem is the solution, for storage that is meant to be used in a lot of different devices based on different OS'es. Could it be a solution to split the MKV's to multipart? I haven't tried but maybe WebOS will play them seamlessly.
