  1. It's quite possible this approach won't work with htat. Most people have been using this for the higher end Oled smart TVs (which probably have some different chipset that makes this work).
  2. Hrm... Worked perfectly for me first time... You're sure it was this guy: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00BBD7NFU/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1 ? I have a 65e7, which should be identical to your 65b7 in this regard.
  3. Why? Usb2.0 is more than fast enough. Even the highest bit rate 4k hdr stuff is way less than it can handle that at peak.
  4. The cable was like $9. Why not just order it, try it out and let people know? Worst case, you're out a tiny amount of money.
  5. >I bougth the tp-link UE300 and it does not work! Why didn't you buy the adapter that several people here (including myself) have validated to at least work on their machines? > I find it strange that some users say the CableMatters adapter is working... What is strange about it? It works. It's been working for me for quite a while now. This seems to be on you. Why not return the adapter that doesn't work and go for the one that at least has worked for us? > Have you disconnected both ehthernet and wifi on the TV? Yes. > I have an OLED55C8PLA I have an 65E7.
  6. +1 My own personal setup is a 22 drive (12hdd, 8ssd, 2nvme) server that streams to all TVs in my home over wired gigabit. Up till now, this system worked great except for some of the UHD content. While the connection to the switch and to all room ports is gigabit, it didn't help that the actual TV connections on my LG tvs was 100mb/s. We could try wireless, but this has also been problematic due to the contents of our walls, and how many signals are in such a small area. Thanks to KM Lee, i now have a solution that works *flawlessly* across all the TVs even when several family members all all streaming high bitrate media across all those TVs at the same time.
  7. LOL. "science-is-truth" sent me a private message stating that i was simply incorrect and there was no way this CableMatters adapter could actually perform the claims I (and others here) have made about it. He insists that because he worked for Bob Metcalf, it's not possible that an ethernet-to-usb adapter would be able to provide enough bandwidth for the LG tv to provide a substantively better ability to stream UHD 4k content locally for plex users. To be 100% clear: "science is truth" is completely wrong here, and is attempting to use an "appeal to authority" argument to bolster his case. His authority has no bearing here, and his position is trivially shown to be false purely by demonstration. I, and several others in this thread, have actually gone and tried this adapter. I have trivially measured hte bandwidth between the TV and my plex server, using both the built-in ethernet and the adapter. i can easily see how the built-in ethernet is 100mbps, and how that immediately and deleteriously impacts content that needs to go above that (for example, i have content that can easily go >200mbps in some places). I can then easily see that over the adapter, hitting those speed is not at all a problem. This is, of course, unsurprising. That same content worked fine over the *very same* usb port when plugging a usb key. So, of course there's enough bandwidth over that port to be able to handle that content. What's fortunate is that the LG tv accepts the adapter plugged in there. -- Note: i've been using this system for several weeks now. It's been flawless. Zero issues streaming *any* media from my plex server. Zero issues with any other streaming apps on the TV. If anyone is running into the same problem with 100mb/s not being enough to stream some very high-bandwidth content, then def try this out. It's fantastic, regardless of what ignorant people like science-is-truth say. Cheers, and thanks again to KM Lee for discovering this and letting us all know. In one simple step this has solved literally the biggest and most annoying issue i've had with this TV.
  8. This is 100% incorrect. Existing Ethernet on the TV is limited to 100mb/s. That's not fast enough for some files to stream without problems. This is easy to validate with any sort of content and a measure of the bandwidth needed at any point in time. The cablematters adapter gives you gig Ethernet over **USB**, where the tv usb port has a min of something like 600mb/s (or rougly 60% of gig-ethernet). This is why you can play those same files when connected by usb. There is enough bandwidth on the USB connection already. Note, this is not theoretical. Files I have that Spike above 100mb/s needed (sometimes up to 150-200), we're unplayable without buffering paused before. Now they all play flawlessly. Measuring from the server I can the bandwidth jump to those levels, where previously it never made it above 100. In short, you have no idea what you're talking about.
  9. This also worked for me. I bought the plug from https://www.amazon.com/Cable-Matters-Ethernet-Adapter-Supporting-x/dp/B00BBD7NFU/ref=sr_1_6?ie=UTF8&qid=1541851589&sr=8-6&keywords=usb+gigabit+ethernet+adapter+3.0&dpID=41wp1EEgSCL&preST=_SY300_QL70_&dpSrc=srch and it works amazingly. Movies that went about 100mb/s (and even were flakey over 5g wifi) play perfectly. Thank you all so much for this information!
