So another day on 05.00.35 in Australia - still having the same issues with HDMI ARC/Optical sound out, also still having HDMI pop ups occasionally.

Emailed LG, got told to call them, called, told I'll be called back the next day. Three days later without a call, called back and was told to take it to the closest service centre to have the hardware checked haha. Obviously it's a software issue considering all the people here in the same boat.

I've requested the issue be forwarded to whoever is in charge of the software updates (Korea apparently), I've also submitted a complaint about the lack of service and after sales support.

If anyone can shed more light on manually updating that would be excellent.

LB671V on 5.00.55 is having bugs and odd behavior in general (HDMI, mode switching, volume, many small things) after 4-5 days of using. This is first time that I have bugs since I bought this tv.

Strange, I have no problems whatsoever with this firmware on 47LB671v.

Did you completely turn off (pull power plug for 10 seconds) the TV after upgrading or did a reset?

When you say Europe I suspect this is then for the 55EC930V and doesn't work with the 55EC930T, correct ?

Ta

 

Yes! 55EC930T is Australia/New Zealand model! 55EC930V is Europe model.

Latest firmware for "T" models is 05.00.35 and i do not recommend install europe models firmware, unless if you wish messed-up TV :)

Latest firmware for your model is 05.00.35 and unfortunatelly this is firmware with HDMI/ARC problems. No fix..yet  :unsure:

For Europe models this problem is solved in 05.00.55  :rolleyes:

Just had a pop up on mine (Australia) saying there's an update available. Didn't click it in time and when I navigate to Check For Updates in the settings it says No Update Available...

Hopefully that means something is in the works at the moment.

LG sells its devices by region and for each region there are applications that differ from other regions. Therefore, it is not advisable to install the firmware from another region. It then makes a problem because the system of broadcasting TV programs is not the same, applications are not the same, so it is very possible that it can totally destroy the TV or to a state that is not working properly..

 

The safest way is a regular online update..

Otherwise, I do not understand why the LG announced 05.00.40 firmware for LB630-LB870, EC930 Europe models because this firmware has problems with HDMI / ARC 

I recommend to all who have not yet installed the problematic .40 firmware to postpone and stay on .15 firmware...and wait next official. Hm, maybe .55 will be the next official  :D

From personal experience, after numerous tests from the first firmware version 3 up to the latest versions of the firmware 05.00.55 I can confirm that there is absolutely NO difference in picture quality. If it is possible to notice a difference image is just better, not worse. The only difference is that version 3 and 4 suffers from the problem of "Out of memory. App is closed." and it was resolved in first 05.xx.xx. Also, all versions 5 are faster, prettier than 3 or 4. LG added some cute options of advanced webos 2.0 in first test/beta 5. Older versions have been slower, applications were considerably slower and suffered from a leak of memory problems..

Are there any betas for the us version of the 42LB6300. I have version 05.00.45 installed a few weeks ago and it's total crap and LG support is absolutely no help. ARC constantly drops out, HDMI notifications pop up on the screen randomly. Why can't basic tv functions work? Never buying LG again.

      Hi. I've got a MKV file with 20+ subtitles. Subtitle I need is at position 18. When I connect the USB disc to the TV,  default LG media player plays it, but when I try to select the 18th subtitle, media player only shows 12... no more... No way I can access subtitles more than that.
      This is a clear bug. Any way to fix this? Is there a better media player app I could install  that can handle more than 12 subtitles in an MKV file?
      Thanks

      I started building a client for Kodi that runs on Smart TV LG webos.
      As a client, need a Kodi server running on local network to consume the JSON-RPC API.
      Communicates through websockets.
      It is being implemented in Javascript using REACT JS.
      I'm looking for developers for the GUI.
      Contributions are welcome!!

      So LG has put webOS on TVs, projectors, and now cars with webos auto. Does anyone thing LG will ever produce a webos powered smartphone or tablet? I know samsung has tried with tizen and it was only with the palm pre 2 and touchpad from HP that we saw webos on these types of devices. Just curious on what everyone thingks. Here's what webos used to look like..

      is there a webtv function or app that shows all of shows available on all the services I subscribe to.  Xfinity does with this it's cable service for example. If you click on "recently watched" it all show all the shows you've watched wether from live TV, on demand, or from apps such as Netflix, that you've logged into. , Apple TV does the same thing. As do third party providers such as realgood.  Anything similar of LG TV

      It is now 2020, and the WebOS browser in LG Smart TVs (which I believe is Chromium-based) is still massively out of date and doesn't work properly with a ton of websites!
      The main problem is actually very simple. The browser doesn't support EMCAScript 2015 or ES6.
      Basically, translated from nerd speak, it doesn't work properly with modern code using new features created since 2015, so any newer websites will break unless they've been written to be compatible with ancient browsers and OSes.
      This should not be the case on a TV made in the current year. It should be running an up-to-date web browser, if not for convenience, then for SECURITY reasons as well!

      I hope LG check this forum.
      Powerful Browser App like Google Chrome that is able to play videos of Amazon Prime, the default browser  is like Kids play, taking ages to load. Able to control streaming quality in apps like Prime Video, Hotstar, NetFlix, Sunnxt etc., i do not understand how hard for any developer to put this feature in app, I think  WebOS SDK expose this to developer to provide this feature. File Explorer that allow us to store data in TV Wifi file Transfer App like ShareIT(Android) More Apps(MX Player, Jio Tv, Jio Cinema, Airtel Xtreme,  VLC Player etc.....)... i feel the most apps available in the content store are crap and useless  Actually i did not do much research before purchasing UK6360PTE TV, I never expected this much difference from Android TV, i do not know how LG even thinking to compete with this WebOS , because people are getting intelligent and do research before purchase of a TV. they definitely find Android TVs more feature rich.
