I've upgraded to 5.01.10 on my 50LB470V and there is noticeable improvement in overall performance. I didn't have too much time to test it yesterday but I've noticed one new problem and one I had on all previous versions.

New one is subtitles not displaying on DVB-C channels. When I tune to a channel with subtitles there is an icon in channel info informing that subtitles are available and an option in Advanced setup menu to select it but nothing happens when I do it. After entering subtitle menu again it is resets to None again. I guess user "tehnicki" is having same 250 DVB-C channels as me (b-net? :)) so some input would be appreciated.

Second problem (which was also present in FW 04.xx.xx) is Time setting. When set to Automatic TV detects my Time zone and location correctly but time is 1h behind. If I put it on Manual I can set the correct time but then EPG is wrong showing shows 1h ahead. I did find a workaround tho. I set it on manual, choose custom Zone, set GMT+1, and then click on Automatic. For some reason everything is correct then.

Anyway, 05 beta is definitely an improvement over any 04 FW, it just need some testing and polishing.

Did you enable subttitle on Accessibility, and did you choose location Croatia?

 

 

I have lots of channels with multiple Title. I can change my default Serbian subtitle on Subtitle button on my remote control

 

I never used "normal" remote, only "smart" one which doesn't have Subtitle button. After putting batteries in basic remote and hitting Subtitle button subtitles are showing and and can cycle if multiple subtitles are available. Thanks for the tip. I also never opened Accessibility menu before so I guess "Subtitles ON" was either ON by default in older FW versions or was automaticly activated when Subtitle language was choosen from Programmes menu.

I need to test Multimedia player to see if anything is broken. Too bad TV still doesn't support Samba shares or movie scrapers.

I do have DLNA server running in my home network on Synology DS214play NAS. LG TV is detected OK and everything is working within limits of DLNA as a standard. I would like my TV to behave more like standalone media players where you can add network shared location as movie, TV or whatever library and then use scrapers to download artwork and info for specific shows or movies. My Synology NAS supports Plex server which will do that,but client app is not free on LG Store. I also have a high-end HTPC connected to that LG TV so I don't really care about that that much.

Thanks for link to this version 5.01.10.

 

I had got seriously fed up with the sluggish nature of webos 1, so much worse than the previous LG smart tv os. So much so i was on the verge of selling this tv at a hugh loss just to get something useable.

 

However ...... this update is a MASSIVE improvment. Much quicker channel change, and the missing info banner on change is now there. Boot up is quicker, switching between apps ( once they have been started initially ) is instant - impressivly so

Quick menu is 'quick' now.  It feels like a completely different tv.   :D :D :D :D :D  

 

Just to balance my input the negatives are TV GUIDE is still too slow load up to be used( however 'Programmes' is quick but just displays current, rather than NOW and NEXT ) Advanced settings are also slow, but being objective this is isnt used that often. Initial boot of apps switches to a blank coloured screen rather than the app front screen such as Netfllix, Amazon etc ....

Some of these issue's may be Beta related anyway.

 

Overal - a much happier LG Tv owner this week. :)

      From heart rate monitors in smartwatches to accelerometers and gyroscopes for measuring an athlete’s movement or swing, technology takes sports to a whole new level of precision. In the world of esports, advanced tech isn’t just something that’s good to have, it’s a necessity. And in this world, LG UltraGear hardware has developed a reputation as the best gear for victory.

      According to , the gaming PC and monitor market expanded rapidly in 2020, reaching 55 million units sold for a year-on-year increase of 26.8 percent. And with more people than ever working and playing from home, demand for better PC hardware experienced huge growth with sales of LG’s gaming monitors more than tripling between 2019 and 2020.
      Let’s take a look at what sets LG UltraGear gaming monitors apart from the rest.

      Compared to other panel technologies such as Twisted Nematic (TN) or Vertical Alignment (VA), LG’s In-Plane Switching (IPS) panel provides a wider viewing angle with minimal color distortion as well as a wide color gamut with excellent contrast. LG was the to introduce an IPS monitor with one millisecond Gray-to-Gray (GTG) response time, a significant advantage over the 20-30 milliseconds of regular monitors. One millisecond means fewer distracting visual effects such as ghosting for a smoother, faster gaming experience. And with a refresh rate of up to 144Hz, ultra-high screen resolution and exceptionally lifelike picture quality, it’s easy to see why LG UltraGear has become an esport favorite.

      Currently there are in the UltraGear monitor lineup including a new 32-inch (model 32GP850) featuring the advanced Nano IPS display technology. Later this year, LG will debut the industry’s first 34-inch monitor with NVIDIA G-SYNC® ULTIMATE built-in for the highest level of compatibility with NVIDIA graphics cards.

      LG makes a great effort to understand what gaming fans really want. One way is through the UltraGear Advisory Board, an online community of approximately 200 gamers from around the world managed by LG. Members of the board have a voice in developing new products, advising on both technical as well as design aspects.

      And LG UltraGear gaming monitors are not only the ideal choice for a home gaming setup, it’s a brand in high demand by professionals who game for a living. LG is currently with Gen.G Esports, one of the top esports organizations, to support their League of Legends Champions Korea (LCK) team. Using LG UltraGear monitors, the team is already .

      Built for a better gaming experience to deliver an edge over the competition, LG’s UltraGear gaming monitors have been the preferred gear for many gamers since its launch in 2018. So whether you’re a pro gamer or just a casual player, LG UltraGear can provide the right gear for the job to make the difference between victory and defeat.

      Hi LG
      When playing a Dolby Vision file encoded in MKV container format, the image is green/purple in colour. A quick googling says, this occurs due the default media player in WebOS not able to decode Dolby Vision MKV container files properly.
      When will this be fixed?

      Hallo, I bought a 55un74006LB smart tv in Italy. It seems not to have usb recording capabilities, according to the information on the italian website, but the UK site declare it has. I think it's the same product with the same functions, so how can I turn the live tv and usb recording on? I think I found the options in the service menu but I cannot change the values. Any suggestion?

      We have signage projects, all over GCC. 
      We are facing issue with Webos tv especially on model 49sm5ke-bj. It is losing connectivity overnight, the displays are left switched on at stores. But on the next day it wouldn't be connected to the Internet and hence the contents are getting corrupted. Always we need to restart the display again or exit and start the app again.

      Hi, 
       
      I was tying to change the settings on our LG TV to enable it for HD channel reception. We found instructions on the net to configure the "area option" in the hidden menu, however, they did not work. So, we thought that we need to change the country group to be able to receive the HD channels. Although we could not change the "country group code" from 20 to an arbitrary number, we change it to 10. After that, we have not been able to change it anymore. It is struck there. I know this is ridiculous, but an LG TV expert who is working in LG customer services told us that I could not change it either and we need to replace the IC. I shocked why with a simple change in one of the TV parameters, everything is got complicated. 
       
      In details, here is the picture of the parameters currently set on the LG TV with the model number of 49LH549V-TD: 
       

       
      Please tell me why I could not set the "country group code" to 20 once again? It is gray meaning that is unchangeable. Any ideas will be appreciated.
       
      Best regards 
      Alizadeh
