Sjaak van Boven, I hope you are right.

My UB850T is just few weeks old. No reason it can't run webOS 2.0 since it is already running webOS 1.x.

furthermore base on press release it doesn't seem major upgrade that require new hardware.

 

LG’s webOS 2.0 takes simplicity and convenience to a new level even while managing an expanding array of content options, so consumers can chose easily from a long list of new features. For example, the initial boot time when the TV is turned on has been reduced by up to 60 percent. Users will also enjoy a 70 percent improvement in loading when switching from the Smart TV Home Screen to YouTube, making accessing content significantly smoother and faster.

 

Also new in 2015 with webOS 2.0 is “My Channels,” an app that allows users to customize their favorite live TV or set-top box channels on the Launcher Bar for greater convenience. Quick Settings lets viewers adjust their TV without interrupting the program they’re watching and Input Picker allows connected devices to be recognized instantly for immediate use.

Are you kidding me?

 

2.0 not compatible 2014 Tv backwards?? Or this is a joke or this will be the dead for WebOS on Tv.

 

And 3.0 will not be compatible with 2015 tv's, 4.0 not compatible with 2016, etc, etc....who will want to buy an LG branded TV?? Please think about it!

 

For all who bougth a 2014 LG tv, there will be updates on 1.x versions?

I really hope it's a joke/mistake, and LG should provide some official statement very soon to clarify... If they go in this direction, it will be my last LG device ever...

There seems to be a common theme here and lets hope LG are listening to their customers who spent good money on their TV's.  Its really bad customer service to turn a one year old product into a legacy/obsolete machine

Pascal the article says the exact opposite. No upgrade for 2014 TVs

I didn't said that they will be supported, i said that non 2014 model will be supported as mentioned in the linked article

Lg will have to give webos 2.0 update for 2014 tv's. Or else there is shame on "Lg Software Developers" as like apple give the software updates to their older handsets too.

I don't care what version number they stick on webos as long as they keep doing big fixes and performance updates and the AppStore is kept up to date. A big if!

That's the point bro! Do you think they will updating older versions? I am almost sure that don't... just see what they did with newscast!

Dear Admins of this forum .. 

 

is this forum - somehow - monitored by LG? does LG knows anything about this thread?

 

because although these are just 34 angry comments of some twenty-ish owner of LG Hardware, but any reasonable person can imagine the number of customers those have bought the 2014 version of LG Smart TVs with WebOS 1.x that will be not upgraded to 2.0 version and how could they be mad about this

 

with all respect to the Admins .. and their efforts .. but I didn't feel the presence of LG Customer Support anywhere .. every post I've read is either by an admin who replies with his own personnel experience or another owner for a LG Hardware

Please Please Please Just give us Samba/SMB share and i wont even mention, the utterly horrible slow WebOS, the lack of support with 2.0 for our 2014 machines or the questionable quality of the panel with loads of bleeding...

 

Just give me SAMBA PLEASE!

No this is not affiliated with LG support, it's a webos user to user support and fan forum. Does LG monitor this forum? I have no idea but I would if I was them since there is a lot of customer feedback.

All, just read those lines, and it seems it's still unclear to LG whether they'll provide such an update for all 2014 models, I already opened a ticket at their support in France, got no feedback yet, but I think you should all put the most pressure you can, else we can forget it...

Here are the lines I mentioned :

      Hi, LG OLED CX 48 installed in France.   As soon as I use « Original language » for the audio the  subtitles are switched on automaticaly.  How do I avoid the subtitles I did not ask for ? Have been fighting with this for a while.

      Merhaba arkadaşlar,
      55LB670V-ZA smart Tv mevcut, Tv açılışta LG logosu bekleme bekleme süresi uzadı. Bazen takılı da kalıyor, TV'yi kapatıp açınca düzeliyor. Bazı formlarda Yazılım güncellemesi yapılması gerekli olduğu belirtilmiş, LG nin kendi işletim ve TV de olan son yazılımı 05.05.70 mevcut webOS 1.4.0-2532 (afro-ashley) mevcut. Yeni firmware ve webOS sürüm nereden bulabilir ve yükleyebilirim. Yardımcı olursanız çok sevinirim.
      Teşekkürler
      Türkiye / İstanbul
      ------------------------------
      Hello friends,
      55LB670V-ZA smart TV is available, the waiting time on the LG logo screen at the TV startup has been extended. Sometimes it gets stuck, it gets better when the TV is turned off and on. In some forms, it has been stated that it is necessary to update the software, LG's own page and the latest software 05.05.70 available on the TV is webOS 1.4.0-2532 (afro-ashley). Where can I find and install the new firmware and webOS version. I would be glad if you help.
      Thank you
      Turkey, Istanbul

      my lg tv has a very good internet connection which is even capable of 4k but only plays the videos at 720p , need help!
    • By najlepszy622
      Hi everyone!
      I want to introduce myself by my first post here. Some time ago I bought LG 49UF7787 a nice 4k Smart TV from LG .
      I'm quite enjoyed by the speed of UI and capabilities of the device but there are some lacks which I thought will be fixed after some time with coming updates. Now after two system updates and 3 months of usage (a model from 2016) there are still things to work on it.
      1. Sometimes Magic pilot don't respond. Mostly when I'm not doing anything for some time (pilot is in power save I suppose asleep mode) and when I want e.g. change tv channel or turn the volume up it do not respond or it react with a 2-3 seconds lag. It occurs maybe by 10% of operations when it is power saving.
       
      2. When I want to check program informations and I'm pushing INFO button there is 4 lines of text but 2 lines are the  movie description and other two are the copy of previous ones.... (picture below)

       
      3. There is no info about CAST and YEAR in the INFO description (for me the wasted 2 lines of copied movie description should be for that specs)
       
      4. Using a LIST button generates a menu with programmes list - it is very nice but is is loading only those descriptions which you are looking at at the moment, when you scroll your list down it starts to load another piece of programmes - I think it should be done in background with some time intervals.



       
      5. I have a cable TV from my ISP and I personalized my program list only to that ones are my favourites. The manager works fine and I just saved my new program list but after I suppose my ISP is changing its own program offer I'm getting the new stations which are empty because my tv plan do not support them.
      E.g. I have only programmes from 1 to 50 but sometimes I get a new channels 383 and 537 or other (numbers are random but always exceed my own list and are empty) 

       
      Any recomendation what should I do to get rid of this disadvantages?
      Do you have the same with yours WebOS 2.0?
    • By hpoiklik

      Thanks to Ruud, one of our members, for posting about this article from CNET.
       
      CNET is reporting as of yesterday that LG is planning to update all 2014 TV models to webOS 2.0. This would be a flip in direction from what they had announced earlier in the year. The articles states that the update will start rolling out mid year to all models. We'll have to wait and see!
       
      The company has confirmed to CNET that its 2014 Web OS 1.0-equipped TVs, including sets like the 55EC9300 OLED, will be updated to version 2.0 of the operating system.
       
      The update will happen sometime in the second half of 2015, and will be rolled out to every 2014 TV with Web OS, in every territory worldwide.
