  1. @blaktro That TV supports both 2.4Ghz and 5Ghz Wifi (802.11ac) so try diconnecting the LAN cable, connect to TV to the WiFi.
  2. @Bevb Go to the TV HDMI settings, ensure HDMI-CEC (called SIMPLINK on LG's) is turned on, and ensure it is ALSO on for the Yamaha.
  3. @Susovan Mondal Many owners think that Smart TV's are similar to PC's, or Android Phones, and that you can install any available APP. However, you can ONLY install the apps you see in your LG STORE for YOUR TV model, in YOUR country/region. There are many reasons for it, mostly down to hardware limitations, and OS limitations, AND it requires the APP developers to develop them for the specific model series, and WEBOS level capability. Copyright and DRM also come into play, as not all manufacturers have the same licencing deals.

  5. @Luis Miguel Caston That 1.40 WebOS is a very old version, and newer versions need newer, more powerful hardware, so that is why you don't see updates. It is a bit like expecting Apple TV (or any powerful app) to work on an old PC with Windows 95!
  6. @Vlatkovski This is just a web forum for WebOS - have you actually raised a support call with LG in your country?
  7. @Vijaykosaraju You are thinking about this the wrong way around. The developers of those apps you want, need to write them to support working on LG models. Best go to thier respective sites or blogs or social media.
  8. @Jo-Anne It is a TV - you need a PC or tablet to do that. The Tv browser is very limited.
  9. @C.s. Midha The WebOS version is completely different to the Firmware version. The later WebOS versions will need later hardware (i.e. more modern TV models), so they CANNOT just all have the latest one! If that 4.60.40 is the latest firmware, then that is the highest you can go. Please post your full model number.
  10. @Vlatkovski Are you sure that your model number and firmware you posted is correct? I can only see version 05.50.55 against that model.
  11. @Huig Settings > General > Additional Settings > Home Settings > Home Auto Launch (set that setting to disable).
  12. @peter shaky 73 It would be usful to know the LG TV model. When you state "my fibre optic cable is allowing my devices onto the WiFi" I assume you are talking about your Home Router, that will create and control your WiFi environment? These are usually connected to your Fibre (FTTH) modem via the WAN port on your router, using a standard Ethernet Cable. Do you by any chance have an Ethernet (LAN) cable connected to the TV? Has WiFi ever worked on this TV? Has anything changed?
  13. @NotHappywithaBuggyLGFirmWa Whilst "There is no such thing as perfect software", that includes firmware. However, this thread is about ONE specific thing where a default changed (to always display the app carousel on startup. And it is easy to change that default to off: An easy fix has already been posted here: Settings > General > Additional Settings > Home Settings > Home Auto Launch (toggle to off or disable).
  14. @MagicR Do you mean OFF as in unplugged, or OFF as in STANDBY? Some electronic logic is still powered during standby, so the remote works (or not if you unpaired it).
  15. @omjana FYI: this is only a peer-to-peer enthusiasts forum site, and NOT an LG Owned site or forum. You can ONLY install apps that are in the LG Store inbuilt "APP" that is set up for your TV model series, and region/country. If it is NOT there, then it has not been developed for your model or region. You need to go to the web-site of the specific app you want, to ask if they will be developing it for LG T'Vs.
  16. @MphilDC That model is a year 2010 "non-smart" TV, and has NO Ethernet connection, and NO WiFi - therefore CANNOT obtain an internal (Home network) IP address from your Router.
  17. @Marco DiPasquale Does the Live TV channels all appear OK? Also, what happens with YouTube videos, or videos introduced via an inserted USB stick? I am just trying to get a "logical" comparison between different functional player methods, to see if there is a common "element" (e.g. a hardware issue rather than software/firmware) that may be causing this. Have you checked any externally connected devices? I had a bad HDMI cable in an external player causing jitter on OTHER content (mostly live TV). Worth eliminating if so.
  18. @RSS Thanks for that interesting feedback. Are you able to post your TV model, the WebOS version and the Browser version please? This may help others with similar issues.
  19. @MagicR As this is Bluetooth Protocol, it is a bit like a wireless mouse and its dongle, but smarter. The paired device codes are stored on both devices, as you might have TWO LG TV's, so each TV would need to know which Magic Remote to listen and respond to.
  20. @mogoan What LG model is it, and how did you manage to do that? Is the sound coming from the TV speakers, or an external AMP or Receiver? Are you using an external TV box, PVR, Foxtel, Sky, Fecth box? What happens if you press the Home button on the remote? Have you turned off the TV and unplugged it for a few minutes (standby might not be enough to reset it from "odd" issues)?
  21. @DaniSan This site is just a user peer-to-peer forum, and NOT an LG site. You need to report this to LG in your country, by opening a support ticket with them.
  22. @MFA - I don't think even Adroid TV do this, ans inpout is from the remote and a software emulated keyboard. See: https://gossipfunda.com/how-to-copy-and-paste-on-android/
  23. @PhylipR That is an innovative and interesting fix, although a bit expensive at around AUD$150 + usb Ethernet adaptor. I guess it seems to prove that the Ethernet chip Driver, and the API (software layers) on top of that have big issues, or at least "timer" issues. By that, I mean inside a lot of software, there are "timers" for "waiting" for an event. With IP (TCP/IP, Internet protocol), The Internet is a very large and variable "data space" where data packets can come and go unreliably, mainly because of bottlenecks, and routing issues, as well as web-server performance variabilities. Many of the "timer values" recommended for the TCP/IP protocol were documented years ago, when the hardware (servers, routers, DNS servers etc) were very much slower and less powerful than todays systems. Plus of course the VAST increase in both user number and device numbers that are now "connected" over time, has tended to dlute that technology shift, where gains are now negated by sheer vast numbers and far higher complexity. Even my new Fridge has an IP adress!! All that raises the chance that those "old spec" timer values (see the RFC docs - started in around 1974 for TCP-/P), being totally unrealistic in todays high-speed internet requirements. What makes the problem even worse, is that many Software Developers rely on "Libraries" of standard "routines" (Object code libraries) to perform specific tasks within a large API/Driver/Interface, or collectivley an "APP". I suspect that MANY devices (including Smart TV's) are still running on outdated "library" code inside the Drivers and API's and "APPS". Now those libraries might not have been updated to the latest software, but the "company servers" still provide them, and they work, and they "link" to make a viable and workable "APP" or driver. However, it may contain an untold amout of "bugs", or even "vulerabilities", until said developer company updates their "software libraries". As many are finding on this forum "There is no such thing as perfect software"!! Going back to the thread points - someone quoted an LG engineer saying that "The WiFi card module has a design fault, and is kicking in when it should not". That may well be part of the issue, BUT, with a properly written Software Driver, both on THAT AND the Ethernet interface side, they should NOT be getting in the way of each other, when ONE SIDE is still active. All operating systems that I have worked with, have had the ability to "ignore" or "defer" interrupts from unwanted sources or data lines. That SHOULD include WebOS!!
  24. @Dave Howard Thanks for the feedback and screenshot.If you choose "More" what extra info does it provide? Hopefully it shows what site to go to,or phone number to ring. They will probably need your TV model and serial number, and maybe a copy of your purchase receipt. I see from a ZDNET article, it also goes up to 2019 manufactured TV sets. https://www.zdnet.com/article/lg-to-recall-some-oled-tvs-due-to-overheating-issue/
  25. @Dave Howard I have seen some reports back in October 2020, for specific LG models and years, and I think it was initially for some Korean models. Here is a list I just spotted, on the Which UK site: Electrical Safety First announced today that LG OLED TVs from five different ranges were being recalled. The models affected are: 65-inch LG OLED65E6 – 2016 65-inch LG OLED65B7 – 2017 65-inch LG OLED65C7 – 2017 65-inch LG OLED65E7 – 2017 65-inch LG OLED65W7 – 2017 Read more: https://www.which.co.uk/news/2020/10/product-recall-lg-4k-oled-tvs-recalled/ This seems a very late message/announcment, so be very wary of any "odd" looking premium numbers to ring, or any "spammy" information. Best ring the official LG support in your country to check it is legit. uk/news/2020/10/product-recall-lg-4k-oled-tvs-recalled/ - Which?
