My 55 UH7707 received an SW update to version 05.50.06. Here are the issues I have encountered:
1. The whole user interface became really slow.
2. Also, what is most annoying, application updates are not installed, for example, NETFLIX has been impossible to update, being stuck in vicious circle,asking me to update the app, and then not being able to complete the installation of the update.
3. Wired connection was disabled, ethernet module was not detecting a cable. I had to do a hard reset to enable the ethernet, and reacquire wired connection to the internet
I have two identical QLED tvs. Around the same time, the Amazon Prime Video buttons on both remotes fail to launch the app. A narrow blue line just momentarily appears on the bottom of the screen. When selecting the app though the remote home button and selecting the app off app line on the screen, the app functions fine.
On one of the sets, I re-installed the app but the problem persists. Since identical problem is exhibited on both sets with different remotes, it would seem that it is not a defective remote issue. Perhaps bug was introduced in a WebOs update since it started happening on both sets around the same time.
Anyone else having this issue? Any solutions?
I have an LG-43UN73006LC purchased in the UK - but it does not have a My5 app for watching Channel 5 related programmes in catch up.
Channel 5 is one of the main 5 programme channels here in the UK - so why no support from LG?
How can they call this a Smart TV without support for the basic UK Channels?
Even my ancient Humax box had My5 app
LG's webOS 6.0 smart TVs have a new UI, NFC-equipped remote
The new smart TV software from LG also has more voice commands for use with Alexa or Google Assistant
Seven years after introducing webOS as the platform for its Smart TV lineup, LG is introducing version 6.0 with a new look and feel for its 2021 4K and 8K TVs. The old blade lineup of apps is gone, with a more modern tile-based layout. LG Home Entertainment president Park Hyoung-sei calls this “the most significant update since we first introduced webOS in 2014.”
An upgraded version of its ThinQ AI has more voice command control than ever whether you’re using Google Assistant or Amazon Alexa. For traditional control, this year’s edition of its Magic Remote is a bit more standard than some of the previous versions, but also includes NFC for the first time, which allows users to share content from phone to TV (and back) simply by tapping it.
The new software includes Magic Explorer, which can pull up related content about actors, locations and items of interest for “select broadcast channels, while Next Picks analyzes viewing preferences to suggest things you might like. There’s no word on opt-in or opt-out preferences for these settings, but we’ll ask about them as the show progresses next week. It’s also unclear whether the updates will extend to older TVs in LG’s lineup, one way or another, the old HP software platform is still rolling on, powering new OLEDs and LCDs for another year.
