    Hi people

    Have you tried going to the webOS store and uninstalling, then reinstalling the app? is it all apps or just some? It might be a hard drive issue. If it's still under warranty that would be covered.
  2. The wallpapers are stored in one of the folders in the Images section (under Pictures And Video, or whatever precisely it's called). I know how to get rid of them, because I deleted the ones in mine (now I just have a blue screen), but I'm not entirely sure how to add new ones. Probably by putting some on a USB thumb drive and plugging it in. Possibly you might be able to use the TV's web browser and download some images to that folder.
  3. I have a C7, no cable, just like you. Mine has never done what you describe so there must be some option to prevent it. Not entirely sure what it would be, but I have 'Channel Plus' and 'Live Plus' turned off. It defaults to the Home Theater input.

    Amazon App doesn't render in HDR

    Are you 100% sure you're watching the UHD version? Amazon, stupidly, lists both on a 4K TV. They're marked almost identically, with just "UHD" in a banner in the corner. I have the C7P and have had no problems with this. I've watched 4K content with HDR as recently as last night.

    Can't turn off Fireworks screen saver

    I definitely agree we should have more granularity when it comes to the settings. LG was *so* great about giving us an absolutely obscene amount of it in our video settings, but I can't turn off the irritating "no input detected" pop-up, modify the screensaver in any way or even change the rotating wallpaper. I mean, that's BASIC customization, and ridiculously easy to implement. I don't know anything about Deezer, but it seems odd that the changing subtitles wouldn't be enough to untrigger the screensaver. Conversely, I find it frustrating that the screensaver doesn't work with external components like either of my Playstations, my 4K disc player or my Chromecast. It doesn't kick in at all. If it's *that* critical, LG (and I personally agree that it is), then the input choice shouldn't matter. If you have something like that, maybe try accessing Deezer through it instead of directly through the TV?

    It isn't hurling an insult to point out that someone who doesn't know what they're talking about doesn't know what they're talking about.
  7. It really is insane how much this gets asked, considering it's the exact same issue that people have been dealing with on their mobile devices for a decade and the answer has never changed.
  8. What type of receiver do you have? Make and model. If it supports 4K pass-through, your best bet is to plug every component - the Xbox, cable box, any streaming devices, etc. - through it and then go from the HDMI out on the receiver to the HDMI2/ARC input on the TV. With HDMI-CEC, the receiver will then automatically switch between inputs as each becomes active. turn on the Xbox, the receiver will switch over to it for audio and video. I have two Playstations, a Philips 4K disc player and a Chromecast Ultra hooked up this way, and switching between them is seamless.

    How do you update web browser on Lg smart tv?

    There are a couple of options. See if there is a CBS app in the LG webstore. I do not believe there is, but I have not checked recently. There is CBS All Access, which is a pay service. It has some great content, new and old, for just a few bucks per month, and will have a lot more than is available on their website. Get a Chromecast. This would be my number one suggestion. With it, you can use the CBS app on your phone/tablet to cast right to the TV, or from a Chrome browser on your desktop. the Chromecast does all the work, with the mobile device just acting as a remote, so you can continue to use it while casting. There are other devices, like Roku and Amazon Fire, but I am not familiar with their specific app or casting support. I can tell you that, last I checked, Chromecast is the only device that supports screen-mirroring from both iOS and Android devices.

    You shouldn't insult others when you have no idea what you're talking about. Utahbob is 100% correct. The screensaver is the first line of defense put into the TV to prevent burn-in and image retention, which is a concern with OLED technology. If the screensaver comes on, it is literally because you are NOT watching the TV, but have whatever you are watching paused for over two minutes. Fun fact: when you hit 'play' or any button on the remote, the screensaver will instantly stop and whatever you are watching will resume.

    Flash player not working

    Flash is hardly ubiquitous anymore, and is actually being phased out pretty rapidly. Adobe announced last year that they will discontinue it entirely by 2020 and started winding down support for it almost immediately. Chrome had already stopped active support for Flash in 2016, and Steve Jobs famously said no iOS mobile device would ever support it. It's beyond a "late stage in its life" at this point. Flash is in its coffin, and the only reason it hasn't been buried yet is to give app and browser developers time to migrate to other formats like HTML5. the webOS browser actually does better than any other browser I've ever used on a console or Smart TV at delivering web content, including video. The best way by far to get brower content to your TV, though, is by casting from a mobile device, or from a Chrome browser through a Chromecast.
  12. If you unplug the Ethernetcable from the back of the TV it will disconnect the LAN connection. Then you just set up the wireless connection and you're set. You're never going to get the same reliability and speed from wireless that you do with a wired connection, so unless you absolutely cannot have the wired connection your best bet is to leave it be.

    OLED55B7 Amazon app - no 4k no HDR

    Even worse than their crappy navigation, there is a bunch of content in 4K on Amazon Video that doesn't even show up in any search. Both seasons of The Expanse are available in 4K, but you'll never find them without a direct browser link (you add them to your watchlist from your browser and they'll show up the next time you open the app on your TV). Other shows you'll search for and only get the regular HD version where the 4K version can be found by navigating to the right place. Why they even SHOW the HD versions on apps that have 4K capacity is beyond me. If your bandwidth is weak, the app will automatically switch to the HD version anyway, so there's no reason anyone would intentionally choose the HD version given the choice of both. Just do what other services do and have one either listing that shows all available versions (Vudu), or just show the best version the users' equipment can handle (Netflix).
