The other morning I had 3 pop ups from different phones trying to connect to my tv. After reading online I came to the conclusion it was they were trying to connect through WIFI Direct. There was no solution on the screen share app. I had turned off connected apps and that didn't help. I checked my router and there were no strange devices. I read that you do not need to be on the same network to connect through WIFI Direct. I contacted LG 3 times. First , I got on chat. They told me to reset to initial settings and that would fix things. It didn't and erased all my expensive professional calibrations to boot. Then I called, they originally told me these people have to be on my home network, but then, when I told them what I learned about WIFI Direct, discussed it and said I was right and there was noting I can do. Lastly, I emailed them and was told to turn off Listening Mode. Listening Mode is no longer available in my Screen Share App.
So, does anyone know a way to stop strange phones from trying to connect through WIFI Direct? While I am grateful they gave us a chance to say no to these pop ups there is no end to annoyance with having to deal with them.
I've had my LG SmartTV for about 4 years. Up until a few days ago, I was able to view YouTube videos without issue. However, about 3 days ago, I started having problems with YouTube. I can access YouTube and search for videos. But, when I try to start the video, the "waiting" circle appears and never goes away.
I've tried everything I can think of to troubleshoot this, including cold-starting the TV. But it's still happening. I thought it might be a YouTube problem. But, I'm able to view the videos on my desktop PC and via Roku, with no problem.
What's going on? Can anyone help...please???

LG webOS TV UF950T,
software version 04.06.00
1.) WebOS is getting updates but new apps are not showing up in LG Content store. When I visit
link hidden, please login to viewthrough my Tv browser there are many new Apps which are not in LG content store. When i try to install , it says not compatible with your Tv. 2) When i try to play a video some times it says video format not supported and some times audio format not supported like with opus & ogg.
My question is to Manufacturers/ WebOs designers if this is the case what is the point in updating TV, when there are no apps or support for new video or audio formats ????
In this case its like if i want new apps, I have to buy a new TV, updates are not helping in improving TV in any ways, no longer a Smart TV

So LG has put webOS on TVs, projectors, and now cars with webos auto. Does anyone thing LG will ever produce a webos powered smartphone or tablet? I know samsung has tried with tizen and it was only with the palm pre 2 and touchpad from HP that we saw webos on these types of devices. Just curious on what everyone thingks. Here's what webos used to look like..
is there a webtv function or app that shows all of shows available on all the services I subscribe to. Xfinity does with this it's cable service for example. If you click on "recently watched" it all show all the shows you've watched wether from live TV, on demand, or from apps such as Netflix, that you've logged into. , Apple TV does the same thing. As do third party providers such as realgood. Anything similar of LG TV
