5.00.55 update works pretty well on 930v but "app memory error messages" are back. Little bit pissed of because I thought that LG get rid of that in near past, but now it appeas again.

It should not be that hard to get sofware to work propery on year 2016. Recent FWs was not affected memeory issues.

I am a week on 05.00.55 with a 930v and I have had no app memory issues so far. Maybe it is app specific? Browser?

Unfortunatelly, I can confirm bug "this app will close to free...bla bla bla.." will popup after ~3-4 hours youtube, netfilx, hdmi/live tv, and smartshare. Then you must reboot(off/on) tv for the next 3-4 hours of happiness  :rolleyes:

 

05.00.55  :(

I also found within a day or two of doing the 05.00.55 updated on my 55LB650V (here in Zealand) that the HDMI pop-up reappeared, to a worse degree - as soon as I closed it it would pop right back up - incredibly irritating.  At this point, I've found if I switch TV off, unplug it for 10-20 seconds then plug back in again it will not do this pop-up crap for a few hours.

 

This is certainly the last LG I will buy.

Since my update last week I've started getting "lack of bandwidth" messages when using Amazon Prime. At first it appeared to be one episode of Outlander, but it now displays when viewing other streamed shows !!!.

 

But I've reduced the number of "insufficient memory" glitches by deleting as many installed apps as possible (iPlayer, 5oD, Netflix, etc).

'Nice': with this new firmware (...55) i got massive 'connection lost' messages using smartshare dlna (42LB671). Streaming is becoming very annoying due to lost connections - grrrr! Wish i could downgrade to previous version. Yes i did reset to factory defaults...

Guys with network issues are you wired or wifi?

This most certainly is my last LG TV, you'd think a TV should just work without ARC or inputs crashing. If the tv can't do basic tasks whats the point of the TV?

Wired, using CAT6 cable at 1Gbit. All WiFi disabled on my 930V and not using the WWW app.

 

My BB service is 50Mb and generally performs at this speed both wired & wifi.

 

 

ps: LG admit that their "smart tv" is still in it's infancy, so still a bit dumb !!!. It does not have the computing  capacity to actually perform the advertised/claimed functions. Hence my decision to un-install ALL unused apps, leaving only Amazon Prime (currently) for streaming services. Prior to the .55 update it worked very well and significantly better than the Virgin Media TIVO streaming apps.

I generally stay away from first gen products and should have stayed away from the 2014 generation, but go t the TV for cheap. I do not believe these occur on the 2015 generation since they have proper hardware to accommodate the software.

My problems with 55 continue, this time it is mostly Plex - it seems that the .55 firmware has done something mysterious that now results in a Plex error every 20 minutes or so, to do with being unable to communicate with the PMS.  It worked fine before .55 (more or less), I don't know, the more these LG muppets play around the worse it actually appears they make things.  Has anyone else had a problem with PMS communication fails and how are you fixing it (if you are).

 

I feel like far too much of my life is being taken up searching forums for fixes on products that really should just work.  Its a little bit like my car, its become over complex, over computerised and overly expensive.  The modern world. Joy.

55 seems to be okay, have yet to fully test switching between apps for crashing. This will be my last firmware upgrade, since I'm blocking LG on my router. I hate the fact it auto updates even if you tell it not to, 5.00.15 was the last working build and since I've had nothing but issue. I regret not keep a copy to downgrade to but will do with 5.00.55.

No, good old LG AU/NZ - lagging behind as usual.  At the risk of sounding overly ranty, I got to say, LG simply suck as far as their TV's go, which is a pity because WebOS i think is a great platform that had potential - but their terribly support/updates, not to mention the complete crap they populate their app store with is just ridiculous, even something as well known/respected as Plex seems to be nothing but difficult on the LG platform.  It really is the end of their road for me.  Never ever again.

Hi Michael , 

Are you still speaking to LG NZ regarding the 55 firmware , may be they have not released here because of the issues you and others are having . I am still waiting a reply from them regarding the sound drop outs , was tempted to try the 55 firmware but it sounds worse than what I have and Im not sure how to downgrade safely if I need to .

Hi,

is 05.00.55 still the latest FW for the 2014 LB6xx Series or are there any new betas? While all the annoying HDMI popups and optical sounds dropouts are gone now, I also get lots of Wifi disconnects during Amazon Prime and DLNA Streaming from NAS with this FW ... C´MON LG, you can do better than this (in fact, you still have to convince me that you can do better than this...)

 

Thanks,

K.

This is latest...

No hdmi popup issue with 5.00.55. Maybe something left from previous firmware..

Please unplug power cord, plug in, turn tv on, then reset your tv to factory settings and set all again..Power cycle and then try..

Thanks but I dont have HDMI popups anymore, my problem is constant network dropouts on WLAN, like other users have reported, too.

Definitely seems to be a software/firmware problem ... so I doublt a reset would do anything.

I had this problem, but it is solved when I changed the router!!

Now I use ZyXEL VMG1312-B10A. No more wifi dropouts.

Before this ZyXEL I used TP-Link TD-W8968 and Linksys WAG160N. Both had problems with wifi dropouts.

Maybe this settings help if you have similar settings in your router..

      I use Enigma2 for watching TV, recording etc.
      Is WebOS an alternative?
      Enigma2 can:
      Unlimited number of simultaneous recordings.
      Streaming (Intranet and Internet)
      Softcam (for pay-TV card) <= Alternative: support for "Unicam" etc.
      NAS instead of USB HDD.
      Unencrypted recordings.

      LG Signed a deal with Luxoft yesterday to bring webOS to new verticals such as automotive, robotics, and the smart home. Very interesting development and a clear expansion of how webOS will be used in the future for not only TVs, projectors, and appliances. Below is the press release from the Luxoft website.

      Next-generation webOS operating system will target vehicles, robots and smart devices
      IFA, Berlin, GERMANY -- 31 August, 2018 -- Luxoft Holding, Inc (NYSE:LXFT), a global IT service provider, has partnered with LG Electronics Inc., a multinational electronics company, to help create the next generation webOS as part of a strategy to extend its capabilities and ecosystem into the automotive, robotics and smart home verticals.
      LG Electronics has previously deployed webOS in over 60 million LG smart TVs and digital signage displays worldwide and this install base is growing rapidly. As a strategic partner, Luxoft is bringing technical assets as well as experience in designing and deploying software platforms for a wide variety of products and services.
      “Thanks to our collaboration with Luxoft, we are able to bring webOS into automotive and beyond,” said I.P. Park, Chief Technology Officer at LG Electronics. “Luxoft is providing a substantial technological contribution to webOS and has also greatly enhanced our ability to deploy it into new industries.”
      Luxoft will lead the deployment of webOS into the new, targeted sectors, beginning with automotive. Initially focusing on digital cockpit development – which includes infotainment, navigation, and other features that are human-car interaction-centric – Luxoft and LG Electronics also plan to introduce the new platform into the robotics and smart home sectors.
      “We’re already leveraging LG Electronics’ thriving smart TV eco-system to customize and enhance webOS so it provides an innovation canvas for car manufacturers to develop next-generation autonomous vehicles,” said Mikael Söderberg, Senior Technical Director, Automotive at Luxoft. “Having access to webOS and its cloud services platform will enable car makers to design and develop better customer experiences for autonomous mobility services.”
      With both technology and specific industry expertise, the Luxoft and LG partnership is helping provide more ways for businesses across multiple sectors to digitize.
      “Underlying this partnership is a shared desire to make it easier for manufacturers to innovate with technology. This platform gives them the flexibility to make digital changes. This will help accelerate the mobility revolution, improve human-robotic interactions and make smart devices even smarter,” concluded Dmitry Loschinin, President and CEO of Luxoft.

      I'm developing an app for LG WebOS, and at one point I load the content dynamically, ajax, and with it also appears the input for search. It turns out that even with the input focused, the keyboard does not appear. Is there a Javascript method to call the virtual keyboard?
