LG 42LB670V - user experience


Meky

Question

Hi all,

 

I bought LG 42LB670V  two months ago after good experience with 55LA660S which bought my father last year. I was kind of thrilled that this TV uses WebOS and allows user way better multitasking a and is more responsive than usual Smart TVs.

 

After two month I can say I am satisfied with this TV - picture is good, user interface is smooth if you wait a moment right after start so I don't regret spent money. But since I am the kind of user who is looking for bugs and is annoyed with them I want to share some of the problems I have and I believe that some member from this community will be able to help solve them.

 

1) I use practically all the time DLNA to watch movies and TV Shows which works very well with my Serviio Server running on my PC but I have problems with displaying subtitles. The TV lacks any support for text formatting. Every time there is italic or bold line in the subtitles TV just simply displays proper tags and don't format the text. So in some cases I got annoying <i></i> and <b></b> tags which sucks.

 

2) There is also coding problem - sometime I need to set manually right coding. Father's SmartTV without WebOS seems to be settings everything automatically.

 

3) Subtitles in 3D are on... 3D. It may be hard to explain for me but I was watching Gravity through DLNA on my TV and I have problem that the subtitles were on the same layer as is the screen while the picture was let's say deeper or was more plastic a came out of screen. It would be great if the subtitles were in layer which would be on top of the image like when you go into cinema. Hope I explained myself well.

 

5) There is no possibility to switch audio line while playing MKV through DLNA. I did not try to play it from flashdrive. Any experiences with this issue?

 

4) Last issue I encoutered is that even I don't have set any power saving or time to power off TV powers off itself after a while without interaction. Sometimes I got just one music channel turned on and I cooking or something and the TV shuts down. It may be after 3 or 4 hours but it is only my guessing.

 

I am running firmware 04.32.20. There is no update available and from what I read in other threads LG is not planning to update 2014 year models to WebOS 2.0 which is really shame. Is there any community developing custom system like it is done by members XDA for phones?

 

Thank you for all answers. If I'll come across another issue I will update this thread.

      So tv was working fine went to load and app today and wouldn't install, did a factory reset, reset the router, connected to phone hotspot
      And can't get the user agreement to load. Even did the DNS 8.8.8.8 thing. Any advice?

      Hi, since I think yesterday I have an issue with HBO GO - it just shows unsupported device and that is it. According to their website, WebOS 3.5+ should be supported, I have LG uh6107 and in menu it shows SW version  5.60.15, so I think it should be ok.. does anybody have the same issue?

      Hi, I'm curious if anyone else is seeing this annoying new behaviour.
      I have my SKY Q box on HDMI1 and have become accustomed to switching back from Netflix (or any other app for that matter) by having HDMI1 assigned to button "1" using the Quick Access feature.  In the last week though, this feature has stopped working properly. If I am in Netflix and I press the "1" button, nothing happens (as expected). If instead I hold down the "1" button to switch to SKY I get a pop up that says this: "Do you want to add Netflix to [Quick Access 1]?".   If I then hold down the "0" button, the 3x3 grid "EDIT QUICK ACCESS" pop-up appears and I can clearly see my SKY Q/HDMI 1 in the top left grid position (button "1")!!!
      If I then switch via the Home button to HDMI1 and remove HDMI1 from Quick Access (via the  EDIT QUICK ACCESS pop up), I can then re-add it by holding down 1 or from within the pop-up. Now, if I go into Netflix and then hold down 1, my TV does (correctly) switch to HDMI1. Hurrah! If however I turn my TV off and back on, then go to Netflix, then hold down "1", I am back to square one with the question "Do you want to add Netwflix to [Quick Access 1]?"......Grrrr!!!
      I have tried switching the TV off at the wall, leaving for 10 seconds and repowering, which doesn't fix the problem (I don't believe WebOS reboots when you do this). LG appear to have made it a practical impossibility to reboot WebOS via anything other than a factory reset which I don't really want to do as it'll take me too long to get all my settings back to where I have them now. Some blogs suggest that the "User Licence agreement" setting can be changed which forces a reset from within the General tab but I don't see this on my TV (guessing that WebOS interface has changed).
      Anyone have any ideas? 
      Rob.

To allow connections to a personal server, devices running earlier webOS versions must be set to Allow Insecure Connections in the TV app settings and the Plex Media Server must be set to Preferred for the Secure Connections preference.
