TV Guide / Single Tuner

2 posts in this topic

Having had a few weeks to adjust to the 50LB6500 the slowness of the interface at startup and when pulling down the TV Guide is very frustrating. A single tuner in this model is a serious obstacle to usability. When you first turn on a TV the thing you most want to access is the guide, and you have to wait ages just to get the WebOS interface running, then wait even longer to see anything useful on the TV Guide.

 

One thing that would make the TV Guide more useful is a function to scan through the channels and grab the broadcast information. The current implementation of the App makes you do this manually. That's not really a Smart TV, it's a Lazy TV. Can't you do better with the guide LG?

Do you mean the guide is pulled down EVERY time the tv launches? That's crazy, why not have a small local DB where you store the guide data (where does it come from anyway, is it embedded or from LG locally?) and then update it like every night? I can really understand that it is slow if it has to load all guide data every single time you start the TV.

 

I am also running Windows Media Center here at home, and there you can have combined guide data, e.g. where no guide data exists from the XML feed from Microsoft, the app is getting the guide data from the DVB-T feed itself, and that is SLOW. Takes about 10 seconds or something. 

 

Most sett op boxes also take the guide data from the DVB-stream, and I have never experienced them being so slow... I wonder what the problem is with WebOS?

 

Do report this to LG!

      Just bought 43UH7500 last week. It comes with webOS 3.0
      Can it have an update to webOS 3.5 like the model in 2017?
      Customer loyalty will be enhanced if the manufacturer provides such after sales service.

      I recently bought  LG webos TV LH600v  and it's really slow and I updated the firmware but it's still very slow and annoying. Is there any solution at least for the TV menu itself (browsing is much worse).

      I have a problem in my LG 55UF8500
      When I watch TV, the imagem is ok. But when I open the Smartv menu,  the frames become distorted.
      Has anyone had this problem and should help me?
      I tryed a donwgrade with  Simon's LgDTVUpDater , but doesn't work. I think what my television has a Brazilian or Latin American  firmware and don't recognizes  in this software.
      Ps. I did the fatory reset, but the problem persist
