HI guys , for the auto ota updates how does the server know your country ? is it from your service location or broadcast location settings or is it IP related , Asking as I believe there is an update coming for NZ but I have mine set for Australian broadcast location .

 

I would just wait and keep an eye on the LG NZ support page for the update to show, then set your tv back to NZ and try an OTA update, if not use USB method. In the mean time you should turn off the 'auto update' just in case it updates to a higher version for Aus.

Yeah I think the next update may be a bit different as per Freeview changes so if it did pick the Aus one it may not apply .

Yep Aus is 7MHZ and NZ is 8MHZ and manual tuning required, that's one difference.

Hi all,

LG Espańa have just called again saying the technical department are working on an update and it will be released as soon as possible ( no date given). Fair play to LG they have been very responive to my emails, always responding to emais or calling me when they said they would. Solution for now is to leave simplink turned off :( no good for us with Raspberry Pi. But a solution is down the road and hopefully the end of the firmware blues. Waiting for the next update."again"

ws2 lucky you , obviously you do almost anything with the PC , and uses only the rec and digital terrestrial TV .
try to put a satellite maybe motorized and then tell me what you think a bit , especially if you have lost days to make a setting of the satellite and then thanks to the automation you are all channels mixed or worse satellites mixed channels zapping .

 

I complained about it with lg area , just now a technician contacted me , I was also he confirmed it , but says it has submitted a long time my complaints , but it all depends korea , in their area they can do nothing , their reported complaints mine and others .

 

because all the faults I complained in the various posts are all 'now appear in the new update .

Even if the new update includes HBBtv I may keep mine on the Australian setting for the universal remote feature. unless LG includes that for us as well , I cant see a reason not to.

That universal remote feature you mentioned is already working on my set, always has. You press the "123" button and get an on screen remote for the device you are using.

Thats weird  , on the LB7500 it only works if you set the TV to AUS broadcast . Ill have to have a moan to LG , must be a firmware glitch

Away from the TV for s few days but I think I posted the version I have a while ago.

Hi , found it , you are on 4.65.50 same as I was on previously and the screen remote did not work for me on that in NZ mode either . Strange as I dont think theres much difference between our TVs .

My TV 42LB6520-TB was bought from Dubai.

Updated to 4.65.05 long ago. Seems all countries received the ver. 5.XX variants.

But nothing here for me. Any clue?

N.B. Both broadcast & service country set as: South Africa

Nope, can't tell the diffience between 5.00.04 and this one. No memory error after 3h20m. But now it's time for bed. (I am happy now no more MEM error).

Good for you, Demonrider. This app will now restart to free up memory on my LG650V when I searched for something in Google. 

I do not have any problems with other applications, only this shitty browser pissed me off every moment. I hope that you remain happy when you wake up.

 

BTW I think that they already do not fix it. We need more physical memory rather than seeking a miracle in the firmware.

Ok, downloading as I type, I´m going to try this 05.00.15 software. My Raspberry Pi2 needs to be utilized a little more.

if all else fails I have not uninstalled the LG_updater so will be easy to downgrade, If not Dejan I´m coming after you. ;) for tempting me with your endless firmware supply's. :D

 

Cheers

 

Jon

      Hi,
      I have following LG Smart TV :
      Model: 42LM620T-ZE (Software version: 04.62.12  ;  SDK Version: 02.08)
      Does my TV have webOS ??
      It was purchased in summer 2012 so I know its quite old now.
      Also how to check if this TV has Netcast (perhaps 3.0 or  4.0) ??
      Let me know.

      Hi everyone,
      It seems that the Window command "Read on device" don't work properly with My LG UH661V.
      The problem:
      Once the video start, it will just stop and get back to main menu after a minute or so. If I try to change the video timeline, it stops immediately. But it seems to only happen if the file content isn't longer than ~30 minutes. Minor issues:
      With AVI files and MKV files, the timeline just don't work. Trying to change the time just result in an error message on the TV. Other points:
      The WebOS is up to date. Windows OS is Windows 10, up to date too. Tried to read on Xbox One and a Samsung TV, and it works just fine. Only happen with LG TV. Any thoughts on this?
      Thanks !

      Hello, I have been enjoying my OLED B6 WebOS 3.0 model for half year. Just out of the sudden my two Windows machines with LG SmartShare app cannot discover my TV anymore. So I can still stream movies if I go to my TV Photos and Videos app and it detects my computer media service(s), so I can select desired video and watch it. However I cannot start streaming from my two Windows 10 computers - each computer detects another one, however TV is not detected, I cannot right click on video file in SmartShare app and find TV set under "Play to" menu.
      My TV and main PC have wired connection with my router, another Windows machine is laptop with WIFI only. I have tried to disable/enable TV's wired and wifi internet settings... no luck ;-/

      Any hints?..

      Hi,
      I am new to WebOS and trying to setup my environment. I followed the same steps mentioned here:
      http://webostv.developer.lge.com/sdk/install-instructions/installing-sdk/
      After completing these steps, I found four new applications installed in my system: webOS TV CLI, webOS TV IDE, Oracle VirtualBox, webOS TV Emulator v3.0.0. Now, when I am trying to run Emulator, nothing is happening. I am using macOS High Sierra.

      Can someone please help me out in this? ☹️
