Thanks for the answer. So there is no way I can install webOS on my TV? Thanks again.

 

No.There is no way..

UB830V is NetCast TV, so you can't install webOS firmware.

I was facing that on 5.10.02 (beta) so I upgraded to 5.00.55 and never had any issue again.

Thank you for replying.

Their Technician did came to my house and did initial reset with his Service Remote.

So I no longer getting that "Unstable Connection" option but there is still one issue I am facing.

I am no longer able to play "MKV" files from smartshare setting.

I am able to play "mp4" files but "mkv" files simply refuses to show in the folder.

I normally add the folder to my Windows Media Playlist and it shows the folder in the "Smartshare" app as "Windows Media Files".

So I assume now that my TV is fine but there is some settings in PC which I am not able to figure it out to play MKV files.

You need to install Smartshare server app on your PC and there share folders you wish so watch on tv. Windows Media Server is unstable and not compatible with some video/audio codecs..

Download Smartshare and install from here: http://www.lg.com/us/support/product-help/CT10000018-1427120133847

When you install choose what you wish to share from application on your pc...In tv app will see icon LGPC.

 

Also you can install any dlna based servers like plex, universal server, serviio...and many others..

 

No more unstable connection :)

Thank You so much. That totally solved my problem.

I never knew about the Smartshare windows app. I always used the Windows Media Player option considering its the only option I have and there use to be lot of connection issues like movie did not played smoothly, sometimes it gets stuck so I have to restart the app once again.

The buffering of videos I think is fast as compared to Windows Media Player.

Even the technician who came to my house didn't knew about this type of sharing through PC which is kinda surprising. He told me he will get back after consulting his senior engineer or something.

Good that I only paid him for his visiting charges and not end up paying for opening the TV and for checking the motherboard. That would've been wasted since the problem was in my PC and not in my TV.

 

 

Also I wanted to know one more thing about whether there will be loss in Video quality if I stream movies over WiFi from my PC?

 

Thank you once again. You were a Big Help.

Hi,

I have a LG 43UF680V TV (HE_DTV_W15A_AFADABAA) with 04.20.70 firmware (in France).

When I watch "Fransat UltraHD channel", the only 4K channel on Eutelsat 5W, I have this problem :

UltraHD is a 30 mn loop of "5mn demo sequences".

On one sequence, the picture freeze several times exactly at the same moments.

But when if I record this 4K sequence on the USB drive connected to the TV, there is no problem when I read the sequence.

 

Any idea ?

May I downgrade to 04.20.50 firmware?

 

Best regards

your actually better of downloading the latest Plex server which is what the LG SmartShare is based off of, and then you unlock all plex features on all devices. You don't need Plex installed on the TV as it will work with SmartShare, but if you get the app it is that much better. 

 

Personally I tried it but never liked the limitations with subtitles.

Hmm, that sounded too good to be true, but while the PLEX App on WebOS ist free, you need to register and open an plex account to use the windows server version it seems ... I hate that...

Plex Server is free as far as I remember, you need to pay for plex pass if you want to watch your content remotely from outside your network.

I am now updating my LG 42LB6500 to 05.00.55.

Is this capable of playing videos encoded with x265?

The TV can barely hold onto it's core functionality and does a borderline okay job at best. What makes you think it will be able to play h265 with a FW upgrade?  

 

Unless hardware accelerated TV will never be able to play h265, I really don't believe this TV has the processing power to ever get h265.

No. The LB6xx series hardware can only decode x264.

      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?
