  1. I have tried to use a USB stick as an external memory for my "Smart" TV. No luck at all with that, this "Smart" TV is not smart enough to do that. I dont see any option to swap partition either, so thats also out of the question. Upgrading the memory by installing another Ramdisk is also something that is far beyond what LG "Smart" TV's can do (My $200 mobile phone is better and faster than my $2,000 TV). The only solution i have found is to add an external TV (Android) box and bypass the disgracefully inept LG TV.
  2. Yes LG are about the worst. I am on the same page as you, i will also never buy another LG product. Just wait until they impliment their system into driverless cars.......
  3. Thats good news. I think that some people have better results with the same methods than others. I also think that these better results seem to work when bypassing the Ethernet cable directly into TV. Through a Set top TV box, or some other media device and then into the TV seems to work best, because the LG simply can not handle a direct input. Its a shame that people who buy this brand of TV then have to go and also buy another media product, just to get this product to do what they say it can do.
  4. Yes its crazy really. When i bought this TV, i did quite a bit of research and really asked a lot of people in quite a few different shops about "Smart TV's" and the shop staff in pretty much ever shop really pushed this LG TV. Looking back that should have sounded alarm bells. As i have discussed here with other people, i have had my TV running the internet through an Ethernet cable from day one, i have never use the Wifi for the internet, so its very confusing when i hear other people say that using an Ethernet cable fixed this problem for them, because it certainly has not fixed my problem. I have talked to quite a few people and even had some "LG qualified" technicians out to look at the TV. They just parrot the same BS, "they have never seen this problem before" or "close the TV down every 20 minutes to delete the cache" "uninstall the apps" "reset to factory default" "stand in a corner on your head with your arse painted blue"...... actually that lasy one i have not tried, but who knows? Too be honest this is only one of the many problems that i have with this TV. I am also starting to get randem shut downs and restarts, somtimes the screen with go black and i can hear the program in the backround, but not see the picture, when this happens i can not use any of the buttons on the "magic" remote. Pages not loading because of not enough memory, The TV not starting properly because it tells me that i am not signed in ect ect LG are rubbish, not only are their product rubbish, but their customer service is the worst, they seriously dont give a toss what they sell to you and after they have your money... well we all know what happens then.
  5. Thats actually confused me even more Jerry haha. I have always had my TV set up with Ethernet and never with the Wifi. I did see another post where they were sugesting that you need to turn of the option for Wifi in the TV settings, so that both options are not checked, but i have covered that also and i still have the error message. At the moment i dont really use the internet option for the TV, because it is rubbish, when i do use it, i am forced to use an app, because LG seem to be cutting back on their support for anything that is not app based. Now i use an Andriod TV box and i stream through that, i can pretty much pick and choose what i want and download anything i want, its also got 16Gigs of memory istead of the 500 megabytes the TV has, when i use the Android box, i never get the message. Anyway thanks for the heads up, i am honestly happy that you have a solution for your problem.
  6. Thats great news that you are not having issues. So you say that you had the error message and then you plugged in your ethernet cable and that was it, no more errors? You were using Wifi before and you did not need to change any other settings, or turn the TV off to delete the cookies and free up the cache. Because like i daid before i have been using an ethernat cable from day one and i did not fix anything, so this just makes me think that my TV, and everybody else's TV has a manufacturing fault, if it can be fixed with just an ethernat cable. Anyway thanks for the update, its good that you seem to have fixed your problem.
  7. Sorry for the late reply. Its great that you seem to have a positive result. I tried pretty much anything and everything, including the tips that you talk about, but for me, there was no difference. I would be interested in knowing if you still dont get the error message after a few months.
  8. Sorry for the late reply. Its good news that you seem to have some positive results from the method that you mentioned. LG basically tell people to do something very similar to this, turn the TV off and this is supposed to clear the Cache and the cookies, they are pushing this out as a fix for the "this app will restart" error. But the problem is only a temporary fix, when i have tried this method, i usually get between 2 and 4 days before i get the error message back again and this is not from watching anything for any length of time, just lite viewing. Its been a few months now since you posted and i would be interested in an update if you managed to stop the error message completely.
  9. Yes thats the reality of this, this is a hardware issue. I also tried the Screen mirroring a couple of times and the first time it seemed to work ok, but i did not watch it for more than 10 minutes, just wanted to set it up and see what it looked like. LG are beyond hopeless and they will just BS you and lie to you until your warranty ends and then thats it "ohh we've not heard of either issue,but stating then they were working on a software fix." I have seen posts to LG from several years ago, so thats a lie that they dont know about this issue, but they still churn out these sub standard TV's.
  10. I have had my TV going through an Ethernet cable for my internet from day one and i have had these problems from the start. I have even changed the Ethernet cable on advice from LG (at my cost) and nothing changed. I have 300 Mbps download speed so i am quite sure its not the internet that is the problem. There have been quite a few times where i have messed about with the TV and changed the settings and deleted everything, turned off all the settings in the setup, deleted all the apps and i got a little more delay in the time i got the error message, then it was back again. I hope that you are correct and your TV is working better for you.
  11. Yes i also had the same BS from pretty much everybody from the shop staff who told me that i could stream anything and everything without a problem, to the LG Support who just told me the same BS about turning the TV off and on, resetting to factory default ect ect i even had one of the LG support telling me that it must be the ethernet cable, because some CAT5 are apparently different to others?? . This is most definitely a hardware issue and this is something that LG have known about for years, they keep saying that they dont know about these issues, but customers have been posting about these problems on this LG page for years, they just dont care once they have your money thats it.
  12. Hi nancys. Sorry are you asking me if i want to know more, or are you saying that you have some information to give me if i want to know more?
  13. After using this LG "Smart TV" for about 2 years now, i can honestly say that it is one of the worst products i have ever paid for. Constant and ongoing problems have long ago woken me up to the fact that i am never going to get what i paid for, or even enjoy using what is still being touted as a "Smart TV" even though after two years of disappointments though constant errors, freezing, crashing, lack of memory, lack of usable apps, lack of support (both through the product and through LG) Upgrades that dont actually upgrade anything and the ongoing lack of support for anything that is worth using through the Web Browser. The lastest downgrade for this TV is the lack of support for YouTube through the Web Browser. I have seen a message at the top of the page within YouTube for some months arning that LG will soon stop supporting YouTube though the Web Browser. A few weeks ago this happened literally over night. I turned my TV on and went to use YouTube only to find that it just did not load, when it does load, its is so bad that you simply can not use the site. I thought about this and why LG would do this and i honestly think that this is their attempt to fix the problem with LG TV's having so little onboard memory that their TV's can not and do not work properly while using the Web Browser for more than 20 minutes without a forced close down. So now they are forcing you to use the apps instead of the Web Browser and stopping support for anything that they can not monetarise through allowing the use of apps on their TV's. But the app is not stable and crashes or simply does not load, its quite ugly to use and not intuitive at all. But this is what we are now being forced to use. Its becomes painfully obvious very quickly that LG dont allow you to change the Web Browser that they choose, you can not download another, because they dont want you to do that and too be honest, there simply is not enough onboard memory to allow for choice. In conclusion, i will predict that its only a matter of time before they stop supporting the Web Browser all together and then they will have to take the word "Smart" out of all discription of their TV's.
  14. As davexnet said, there is no option or solution for updating or even changing your Web browser. I have looked at this very same thing several times, because in their total disregard and contempt for their paying customers LG have blocked anything that they can not monetarise or anything that might in any way actually enhance your use of their sub par products. Ohhh ......and they have also started to not support certain web sites and pages that up until now have been available through the web browser, like Youtube, you now have to install the app and thats money in the bank for LG. Do not waste your time and energy contacting LG about anything, they will just ignore you. My advise to you, get an Android TV box and use that to download any apps you want and any web brower you like and as soon as you get the chance, get rid of your LG TV and buy one that actually does what it is supposed to do.
