I have not heard anything but it would make sense if the hardware was compatible. Here's to hoping they do!

Here's my question :

 

 

Dear Sir,

I recently heard that LG developped a brand new interface for its Smart TVs.
I currently have a recent 47LA620s that I bought less than 4 months ago.
The current user interface that I have is this one :

When will my Smart TV receive an update to the latest WebOS user interface ?

HI Alex I know it's great news, I've just fired of some questions my self to LG asking about webOS and the current range of 2013 TV'S, hopefully all 2013 duel core processors tv's should receive the webOS update after all it makes sense if LG want to keep their customers coming back and buying more of their range. I'll be picking up a 4k tv at the end of the year so if they want my returning business they hopefully won't leave their existing customers out of any future software updates.

I 've  sent a mail to LG UK customer support asking when will they update 2013 models to WebOs.

Here is the reply:

"Thank you for your query regarding your 42LA660V

After looking into your query, I can confirm that the new WEBOS operating for our 2014 LG Smart TV's is unique to them and that it requires certain hardware capabilities in order to work. The requirements are not met by the LA or LN ranges of TV's as they are 2013 models and have different hardware in them.
It is not a matter of a software update but actually changing the hardware inside the TV which is not possible.

Therefore, I can confirm that it the WEBOS system will not be being released for your model of TV, unfortunately.

I hope my email has answered your query and assisted you today; I would really appreciate your feedback. Please help us to improve our customer service by completing the short survey after this email.

Thank you in advance.

Kind regards "

 

So ... that's that! :(

Here's the translation :

 

 

 

Hello Mr. ------- ---. 
 
In response to your mail on 12-05-2014 concerning an update for your TV to the WebOS interface.
Please do not take into account our response.
This is due to an error in our services, because only the TV models that have been released in 2014 will receive this update.
Currently, there's not any update planned to 2013 models.
 
We remain at your disposal for any further request. 
Please accept, Sir, the assurances of our highest consideration.

 

well... 'kay...

 

 

That's kinda funny, this time I didn't had the "quality-survey-thing"

Hello All !

I was certain it was an error

TV with NETCAST (2012, 2013 & 2014) platform could not become WebOS platform with a simple S/W up-dating!...
This is not possible due to the hardware difference (RAM, processor etc ...)

 

bye

Dear NICNL
I am sure your last Post is not really exact and I suppose it's an error of translation when you wrote:" only the TV models that have been released in 2014 will receive this update"
I am sure there is no update between NETCAST and WEBOS.
LG SMART TV with netcast stays in NETCAST platform
LG SMART TV with WEBOS stays in WEBOS Platform

there is no relation between this 2 Platform.

      It is now 2020, and the WebOS browser in LG Smart TVs (which I believe is Chromium-based) is still massively out of date and doesn't work properly with a ton of websites!
      The main problem is actually very simple. The browser doesn't support EMCAScript 2015 or ES6.
      Basically, translated from nerd speak, it doesn't work properly with modern code using new features created since 2015, so any newer websites will break unless they've been written to be compatible with ancient browsers and OSes.
      This should not be the case on a TV made in the current year. It should be running an up-to-date web browser, if not for convenience, then for SECURITY reasons as well!

      Hi all!
       
       
      I have a LG 42LB630V, with the latest firmware installed.
       
      I want to know if it is possible to change the audio language, for a mkv file that has more than an audio language and how to add external subtitles. Those embeded in mkv files are running ok.
       
      Thank you, 
      Cipria
