LG Smart World account issues


figgy

Question

I have an LG Smart World Irish account. Signed in but there are very little Apps (IPTV BBC iPlayer etc..) Apps available on the Irish store. I then created a 2nd UK based account thinking it will be a workaround to getting the Apps onto the TV that I need. When I try signing in with the UK account it will not let me giving me "Cannot use this emil for the selected country. Please create another account" I switched region to uk but same issue. Changed the DNS also but still same issue. Does anybody now what the issue with this would be ?

Thanks,

Tony.

I've been having similar issues, though I am being sneaky and trying via a dns service to make the tv and other electrical things think I'm in the USA rather than new Zealand, where the content market is pretty much zero. The lgtvapps.com page won't accept the login I set up on the lg page when registering the products I got last week, nor when I ask for a password reset will it send anything, on both cases it says my email doesn't exist. So I used a different email address to start again but still same issue. I have to say the user experience with lg is a huge turnoff, and this rubbish about restricting app content by region seems very stupid, I moved from the uk to AUSTRALIA and then here, luckily I bought new tvs in each country but I assume from all this bollocks that a tv bought in Nz won't work in England,or vice versa? Have others had the same problems re logins, location and the lg services?

Thanks.  I tried that, but it is still limited to regional countries, that also don't have access to Netflix for example.  I rang LG today to complain about what is basically false advertising in this part of the world - none of the 'smart' functions actually work on their TV's here in NZ, in part LG's doing and in part because NZ is just a backwater really.... and they confirmed there is no way to change the actual region that the TV is set to as this is based on manufacture, they said it's hardware related.  I wasn't quite convinced but that was their reasoning - i have tried to use my overseas DNS settings with no luck either.  So, suffice to say i'm less than impressed with this TV and the limitations it has imposed by geography that are not spelt out in the marketing campaign.

      I am using the above TV. Quite often when watching a programme live from the aerial, the screen will suddenly go to the "wallpaper" screen and a box advises there is no signal, the TV is checking for a signal and please check connections etc. After a few seconds the TV resumes with the programme that was being watched. Obviously, the TV seems to be temporarily losing the signal. However, a 2nd LG TV (older model) in another room, feeding from the same aerial has no such problem and neither do I get signal drop outs when using my Humax box for recordings, all of which suggests the aerial signal is perfectly OK but for some reason the 55NANO795NE  momentarily loses it. Anyone else having a similar problem and any thoughts on what to do to resolve it?

      I have a LG TV model 55EG9A7T and I have been trying to connect my sennheiser bluetooth headphones using the wireless sound sync for the longest time but it is not able to find the device under available devices.
      I tried to call in LG tech support - but no one seems sure whether only LG brand headphones are supported. 
      Does anyone know if only LG headphones are supported?

      Hello,
      Is there any way of installing an usb gigabit network adapter on a webos smart TV?  The builtin wired adapter is only 100mbps (on a 2000$+ TV, shame  on you LG!!!)  while the wifi (N) is very poor, with the router at 1m from TV it only gets half the bandwidth of the wired network. Anyway the wired network  maxes out near 100mbps but I need more bandwidth as I have 4k video content with bitrates grater than 100mbps which I cannot stream without stuttering to TV through XPLAY/PLEX. 
      Kind regards,

      Hi. I have two LG Smart TVs that were purchased in 2014 and have the YouTube apps pre-installed. I would really like to uninstall them if possible but despite searching everywhere online cannot find the answer. All of the current threads or videos refer to newer models where the screen layout is different with all the apps lined up at the bottom of the screen. My TVs have app ‘cards’ and I simply cannot edit card 1 which has the pre-installed apps on it. Any help would be hugely appreciated. Thanks, Nigel.
