Hi all

I have now tested the 5.00.04 version, and are sad to say that the  ARC/HDMI error has been reproduced after only 45 min. 

I really hope it will  be fixed in a later version. But i have to wait for the FW to be released in Denmark, before i can contact LG support. They fixed it once before and maby i'll have luck once more to make em fix it again. Maby i'll downgrade or buy an optical cabel.

Just for your amusement this is an example of the level of control I have on ALL LG TVs: the menus you see are custom made.

Hey Demonrider, I also use ARC to my receiver and have never had this error, Are you 100% it is a FW issue? I would assume you have tried all the basic troubleshooting if you have contacted LG before. Let me know if there is a way to replicate the issue and I can try it on my end.

Version 05.00.04 is no better then 05.00.01. Neither works better then 04.45.25 for my tv. Still slow response and other issues are not fixed.

turbozob, you mean 05.10.01 not 05.00.01, I suppose. 05.00.04 is worse than 05.10.01/05.10.02 IMO.

I have installed 05.00.04  from the LG support site here in NZ .Some things appear to be a bit quicker ie input changes but the advanced menu seems to be a bit slower if anything . I have had one memory error while using the web browser but not when using any other apps. I'm guessing this might be the final version as it has been released on there support site but not sure .

I've just downgraded as well luckily I left the LG updater file on the PC. Just a shame I liked the speed of the new firmware and I was hoping the issues would have been solved, I use the simplink for Raspberry Pi control.

Until the next update if any. Maybe if we all contact LG they may listen, we can but hope.

Cheers Jon

Would/could a kind person please supply me/us with the instructions on how to downgrade. Have tried various links to russian forums but seems very complicated. It would be great if someone who has gone from 5.10.02 to version 4.xx.xx could provide a step by step guide. i am quite confident with pc's

Many thanks in advance for the kind soul who takes on this for me.

ps i am sure others would love a simple guide also.

      i am owning a LG-LB670V.
      The TV started to power on only sometimes but is now not powering on at all.
      Once i plug the power cable the front red led is blinking 8 times (the pauses between the blink is not always the same).
      Is anything i can verify/do myself before bringing it to a repair shop ?
      Rm: i tried already with another power socket and by pluggin it directly to it.

      Hi there,
      So VLC (via DLNA) does not see LG TV webOS as renderer option.
      Even Windows 7 (via Explorer / Windows Media Player) sees it.
      What's special about LG TV webOS DLNA implementation that VLC does not see it?
      PS: Some other related posts on this.

      LG Opens Popular Platform and Integrated Content Services to
      Manufacturers to Deliver Better TV Experience to Even More Consumers

      SEOUL, Feb. 24, 2021 — LG Electronics (LG) announces the availability of its popular webOS TV platform ecosystem to other TV brand partners, disrupting the status quo in an industry known for its proprietary operating systems across different manufacturers. LG is now expanding its expertise beyond TV manufacturing to encompass webOS TV software platform development and adoption by other TV brands. This has the potential to reshape the TV business for both technology and content providers while significantly growing LG’s presence and prominence in the global home entertainment market.
      As an integral component of LG’s preeminent home entertainment ecosystem, webOS has delivered exceptional ease of use for LG TV owners through its intuitive interface design since 2014. Licensees of webOS TV receive the familiar and highly acclaimed UX design along with a rich pool of features such as voice search and control, integrated AI algorithms and easy connectivity that have earned webOS positive industry and consumer accolades. With LG webOS TV, partners also get a diversity of content options including access to global streaming service apps such as Netflix, YouTube, Amazon Prime Video and sports streaming service DAZN as well as LG Channels, the company’s free premium content streaming service.* Compatible TV models also include the dedicated Magic Motion remote controller.
      Over twenty TV manufacturers from around the world have already committed to the webOS partnership, including brands such as RCA, Ayonz and Konka with more partners expected to join in the future. The webOS ecosystem is supported by technology partners such as Realtek, Nuance, Gracenote, CEVA and Universal Electronics, among many others.
      “The webOS platform is one of the easiest and most convenient way to access millions of hours of movies and TV shows,” said Park Hyoung-sei, president of the LG Home Entertainment Company. “By welcoming other manufacturers to join the webOS TV ecosystem, we are embarking on a new path that allows many new TV owners to experience the same great UX and features that are available on LG TVs. We look forward to bringing these new customers into the incredible world of webOS TV.”

      I have a LG TV model: 47LB652V-ZA, webOS version 1.4.0-2523 (afro-ashley). Why isn't Spotify supported for this TV if its from 2014 and it says that devices from 2013 and onwards will be supported

      LG's webOS 6.0 smart TVs have a new UI, NFC-equipped remote
      The new smart TV software from LG also has more voice commands for use with Alexa or Google Assistant

      Seven years after introducing webOS as the platform for its Smart TV lineup, LG is introducing version 6.0 with a new look and feel for its 2021 4K and 8K TVs. The old blade lineup of apps is gone, with a more modern tile-based layout. LG Home Entertainment president Park Hyoung-sei calls this “the most significant update since we first introduced webOS in 2014.”

      An upgraded version of its ThinQ AI has more voice command control than ever whether you’re using Google Assistant or Amazon Alexa. For traditional control, this year’s edition of its Magic Remote is a bit more standard than some of the previous versions, but also includes NFC for the first time, which allows users to share content from phone to TV (and back) simply by tapping it.
      The new software includes Magic Explorer, which can pull up related content about actors, locations and items of interest for “select broadcast channels, while Next Picks analyzes viewing preferences to suggest things you might like. There’s no word on opt-in or opt-out preferences for these settings, but we’ll ask about them as the show progresses next week. It’s also unclear whether the updates will extend to older TVs in LG’s lineup, one way or another, the old HP software platform is still rolling on, powering new OLEDs and LCDs for another year.
