WebOS TV Firmware version


Recommended Posts



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.

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:

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..

      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
