  1. Posted October 19, 2015 - 04:57 PM Gulfstream2000, on 11 Oct 2015 - 5:49 PM, said: did you change the gateway on the TV to the IP address of your computer (just like the DNS on TV)? On the TV, i set the GATEWAY AND THE DNS to match the IP address of the PC.
  2. hi feraug, no problem - i am not an IT expert just my opinion. however in this case are we not actually saying the same thing ? so no matter what architecture the firmware is using, so in your picture - risc, should the firmware not work within its limitations ? if we had larger physical memory would that not just be hiding potential dynamic memory issue ? or am i missing something ?
  3. I dont believe the memory error is due to the size of the memory. Its how its managed. Most people seem to find intermittent watching time before the error occurrs and i know myself, sometimes its been every few minutes other times its gone all evening with no errors. If the physical memory size was not sufficient then basically it would never work ! I think its a poor show of LG with webos1.x How it could be worse than a previous tech generation is disgraceful. The only saving grace is they have improved the firmware with these latest versions, and without wishing to tempt fate 5.00.20 looks good.
  4. changed gateway to match the dns address, this then allowed the process to work.
  5. So think i have got a little further. My initial IP address i was substuting was the routers IP and not the pc itself. So doind a CMD line, IPCONFIG - i got the IP address of my ethernet port. Using this address i can now see in the .bat file cmd window: 2015-10-11 16:00 Tresolver.Execute: Request ID xxxxxx received from client xxTV IPxx regarding "lgtvonline.lge.com" of type A. So i am guessing that i am now receing comms from the tv and it is requesting the lgtvonline.lge.com site. However i can not get any further, nothing else happens. Another site suggest the in_dump.txt file gets modified, but mine does not get re-writen. ( Have tried deleting it, but it does not get re-created ) Any ideas on what i can do to fault find this stage ? Should i be able to ping xxTV IPxx and get a response ? I have tried this but get timeout. thanks.
  6. Good evening all, i am having some difficulty downgrading from the Beta 05.10.02 version to try the latest 05.00.15 version, so any help most appreciated ! I'm not really an IT network guy, so not so sure on whats going on. step 4) After obtaining MY IP ADDDRESS, do i need to remain connected to the internet for this process to work ? step 7) and 8) the .bat files open and remain open. ( After clicking allow by firewall ) however step 9) i am not so sure about. So from a hardware perspective, i now have my PC connected via an ethernet cable to the TV. I goto NETWORK settings, and disable WIFI connection. I then proceed to WIRED CONNECTION (Ethernet ) untick set automatically and change DNS SERVER to my own IP address BUT i leave IP ADDRESS,SUBNET MASK, and GATEWAY as they are - is this correct ? I then click CONNECT, and i get a LG TV MESSAGE 'Wired network is connected' However in the little graphics under the large text EDIT IP, i get a cross by DNS and the internet symbol and it reports 'No internet via Ethernet' - Is this as expected ? Now going into GENERAL / About this TV / Checking for updates - i get the message 'It may take a few minutes' then no update found. So i'm not sure if the tv is going through my pc or if i just dont have a valid update file, am i meant to put an .EPK file in HTDOCS like an email earlier ? Thanks in advance for any pointers . My TV model is a 55JL9000-ZA, UK.
  7. well, out of curiosity I changed the region to spain ( just anything different from the uk ) and guess what, I now have youtube back in my list and a number of apps I don't recognise. so I wonder if setting the region purely dictates what apps you can see ? Anyway, EIFollaco - thanks for your input, since I at least now have youtube back !
  8. ok, after further viewing on ver .02 I've realised I have also lost youtube. taking my own advice I looked in the lg store but no youtube app. in fact none of the streaming apps are in the store, eg iplayer,Netflix,amazon. So anyone know, are these part of the OS itself rather than separate apps ? Regarding the memory error it seems to manifest itself after you've been watching a stream for a while ( maybe 45 mins + , also via the settings sequence I outlined earlier) then it will continue to happen every 60s or so until you turn the tv off then on again. Tried with direct Ethernet still the same so its not the wifi router.
  9. ok, found the right version of 5.10.02 - all sorted and updated. Could you guys try something ? AMAZON prime, watch a streaming video, then on the tv > select settings , then select advanced settings, Within 5-20secs For me, most times - this invokes a APP WILL RESTART to FREE UP MEMORY. Other times it may just stop the video streaming. Maybe its my configuration, but if universal will be useful for the developers to know. Thanks
  10. Also my tv will not see version 5.10.02, maybe just not compatible on this one. However disappointingly I am getting 'APP WILL RESTART TO FREE UP MEMORY' while watching streaming video such as from Amazon. The tv seems doesn't seem to like it when you go into settings say while in an app such as AMAZON or NETFLIX. Also the delay started to increase slightly becoming jerky when operating a function. Just done a factory reset and everythings quicker again, cant comment yet on the FREE UP MEMORY ISSUE. I just hope the release version has these things ironed out. Ive got a couple of the previous generation LG SMART tv, and apart from a duff wifi card the actual OS is faster and more robust. Just for reference SIMPLINK turned off as is MOTION recognition just in case these are causing problems.
