I can confirm that the latest firmware 05.00.60 is the best so far. It is notable that little acceleration through menus and working with applications such as web browser and youtube. The new software is not perfect, but it certainly is not bad. It is not true that it is slower than previous versions 3 and 4. Older versions are slower and have a problem with a lack of memory. I do not see the point why I would go back to the proven worse software. After each update you must reset the TV to factory settings and set all again to see improvements...

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.

Guys, please refrain from attacking each other in a topic on this site. You are welcome to PM each other and/or take it offline. Thank you.

Dejan, I have experimenting all day long with all SW versions.

SW 3 and SW 4 are FAR MORE OPTIMIZED for my 42LB671V then SW 5! Far more! Menu pops out in less than 1 sec. Didn't know this until today, or let me put it differently - I forgot how fast and fluent this TV was before.

Beside this, I've never had issue with memory leak on this TV.

I'm back again to 04.45.25 and that my final sw until series 6 is out (if ever).

I'm not suggesting anyone to do the same, just bringing the info.

Took the chance and installed 05.00.60 over. 55. No problems, no hassle, but no visible or noticeable changes either.

I wish they'd include a possibility to program recordings in the program list in the upper screen menu.

You must use the record facility. Do you suffer from sound glitches in the recorded content, I suffer from high pitched bleeps & burbles ( the best way to describe it) every 5-8 minutes. I don't record that much but it makes you jump if your watching a quiet scene with the volume a little louder than normal. I've had this over the last few updates

No problems with recordings, neither sound nor picture quality. I only record HD programmes though. And to program those recording I need to switch to program guide app every time. Would be much quicker using the upper on screen menus.

Cheers Kusie, I'm in Spain & have a re-broadcast uk tv system in SD or even less but this signal is not the problem I'm 100% sure, its tv or my Disc drive(just thought of that) Its a weird thing  but luckily I don't use it much. I'll probably update tomorrow. wish me luck.

Oh yeah Dejan, you are very susceptible to placebo... After each update you write that is an improvement, and you tell people to restore factory settings. The truth is that for a long time nothing has changed, TVs with webOS 1 are shitty, and nothing can change that. After restoring factory settings TV is always a little faster, and this has no connection with the update, you can get the same restoring factory settings regularly every month. No offense - LG deceived us, but it does not make sense so that we deceive ourselves and others. 

 

BTW mister8ight is right that the firmware 3.x.x is faster, but we prefer to cheat, that we have almost webOS 2.0...

Well I've updared. Does look a bit snappier again. Haven't done a full reset yet because I only factory reset a few days ago and cant be botherd to set all the settings again so soon. Time will tell. Still no out of memory errors as per 3.--.-- and early 4.--.-- softwares and off course no arc issues. As for the picture quality with the older softwares I thought there was a degrade but after fiddling with the picture settings I manged to get back to similar quality as before. I'm just glad that LG seem to be supporting this early software/TV for free. They may not be monumentos upgrades but LG must be doing something as issues are getting less. Thats my Opinion anyway.

I do not know how older software is better when applications such as YouTube and Web browser take much longer to start and after a short time it appears a ANNOYING message about lack of memory. The image quality is absolutely the same and in fact is nothing better or worse..  -_-

 

@mister8ight Good luck with your old school versions ;) I am very happy about it  :lol: You need to install Windows 95(or older) because it is faster and better than Windows 10..hahaha  :D

Everbody has their own opinions. On my set the new software seems better than before and I'm going to stay with it. I had a problem with a couple of firmwares before so downgraded. If your happy with other firmwares thats ok, no problem. People hear are only tring to help other who are in a similar postion (not quite happy with the LG tv/firmware) you have 2 options Opt 1, buy new tv or Opt 2, continue to find best firmware for your preferences through a process ilimination.

Interesting,  did you already test this on LBXX TV? Not going to play the guinea pig this time...

Seems a strange jump from 05.00.60 to 05.05.00 .

      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 13. 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 IL.

      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.

      Please let me know in case if anyone has any information on this.

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
