Hi,

 

I bought a 47 inch 650V TV a week ago and I noticed that this SmarTV has a huge potential but still lacks very basic features. So I hope that I don't regret buying this TV if a update don't gives us some really great improvements.

 

* First of all, WebOS it's slow. It really needs a huge performance improvement. Im not a BETA tester. If the system it's not ready, they should have hold it for a while and hire some inside beta testers.

 

* Youtube app doesn't play videos in HD. Compared to my AppleTV, the difference it's huge. This is a 1080p SmartTV and there's not a single option on Youtube to play everything in 1080p or at least, 720p.

 

* Audio Output only gives us a option to select one instead of a multiple sound output. Sometimes I use a Digital Out Surround Systems, and in my old LG TV, I could use the TV Speakers and this digital audio at the same time and only mute the TV. It's the fastest way to use both. In this new smartv, I have go to the audio settings to choose the audio output everytime. For a slow system, it's a really painful solution.

 

* This TV has Bluetooth built in, and there's not a single option to pair a Keyboard, Mouse or a Audio Device. It's locked to LGs proprietary Bluetooth devices. It's inaceptable since Bluetooth technology is standard and to use a Bluetooth Keyboard/Mouse/A2DP sound I have to get a pack that cames with a USB Bluetooth dongle. So all my BT keyboards and mouses that doesn't have that USB dongle can't be used.

 

* I own a LG G2 Smartphone and I cannot simple use the LG SmartShare. It's slow and crashes all the time, so sharing my videos and photos to TV it's simple mission impossible. The same goes for Wi-fi Direct. It simply doesn't work. And the same goes for the LG TV Remote App. It's very slow when we try to use the "mouse pointer".

 

* It's not possible to resize .srt subtitles and tags like <i> and <b> are not recognized by the TV. So not only I can't have Italic and Bold text, but those tags are also added to the subtitles like normal text...

 

And I notice this with just one week of usage, so obviously there's a lot more things to improve but this features are simple to use on my AppleTV and my LG can't handle them very well. I bought this TV and paid the extra money to get a good SmarTV compared to the 5700 model, with the intention to get rid off the Apple TV... but at this moment I just can't...

Adding more Missing Features after learning more about LG WebOS.

 

* Favorite button should open the favorite channels in a list and not jumping from channel to channel. It doesn't even make any sense! It kills the "ease to use".

 

* Favorites should allow us to mix DTV channels, no matter the source (Antenna ; Satellite ... )

 

* Easy and fast way to change between Antenna and Satellite and even add a "All in One Place" option. Jumping from Antenna to Satellite it's a wast of time and kills the user experience.

 

* When using a computer mouse, they should add a function for the middle or right button with the same function of the "SMART" (home button) on the remote. That will allow us to use RF Mouses without the need of having the remote for just this simple function.

 

* Sound Output really needs to allow us chose multiple outputs instead of just one. I would like to use the TV speakers and HomeCinema (Optic) at the same time just like on older LG TVs.

 

* When searching for Satellites, it would help having a sound with different tones to to match the signal percentage.

 

* Allow us to DELETE channels. Hide them only makes everything a big mess, specially because when I try to move alot channels at the same time the WEbOS crashes (The low memory problem)

Agreeing - satellite and terrestrial channels should be "mixable".

Favorites button - now I don't understand what it is doing...

Deleting channels should be an option.

 

And...webos 2.0 is still SLOW on my 50LF652V. I know this might not be the best TV, but it's good enough for me, but the system should not be so slow!

Audio With our older TV's (Aony Samsung) my wife is capable to switch music output to our soundsystem.

We our current LG TV, the LG programmer has decided to default switch of the (digital)  output and have no option to activate to select both output via the TV Speakers (wich you can mute) and the external audio output.

 

If LG had put a audio exit menu option under the mute button she would be able te handle it on her own but instead he menu is so complex - you have to be a computer specialist - to change the audio settings.

 

I informed LG that Samsung always has signal on the external audio output, informed that the current audio setup is to complex for a normal housewife who wants to switch the music to the audio device and asked them to make a software change.

 

Until now no result, may be the wife of the LG programmer can help/explain why a house wife friendly audio switch function should be a prio 1 ...../;-)

Urgent #Request for development to add a house wife friendly switch function from TV to external audio. 

For instance put een extra menu under the mute button where you can select the audio output

      I am wondering how can I get my lg SMART TV webOS 3.4 to connect with google home mini?

      Hello -
      after no updates for approx. 2 years, the TV updated to 06.00.03 about 4 months ago, now to
      this latest, which is described as a bug fix release.
       
      This release has changed the  TV picture, it is too bright, almost garish, with a decidedly blue color cast -
      Let's be honest, a stable and properly balanced image was never one of the TV's strong points, now it's almost unwatchable.
      Why would anybody update the TV firmware picture settings of a 4 year old TV in such a drastic way?

      I am recording videos to 
      link hidden, please login to view NAS. During the recording I like to watch the video (still recording).  The Photo and Video App on webOS does not show the file unless the recording has terminated. Is there a possibility to watch videos in webOS while it get recorded? Joseph

      Edit: well, had to reset defaults, fixed after that. 
      Hello. in recent days I've updated my LG OLED65CXRLA to 03.23.35 firmware, after that HDR won't work at all.
      I own this tv since February, and never had any issues with it, and for the first time I've encountered problem and serious one at that,
      Before said update HDR worked without any issues from any source - PC, PS4/Xbox, TV's apps like YouTube and Plex. After update HDR doesn't work from any of said source. 
      How it happens: when I launch any HDR content, tv blicks, in upper right corner appears HDR notice, but picture becomes very dark. It's the same as if for example you try to run any YouTube's HDR clip on display without HDR support.

      I have a 50NANO79SNA, built in 2020.   After ignoring the message for some time I finally decided to allow it to do an automatic firmware update.  Started the process then went to bed.
      In the morning the TV appeared to have hung up - it was turned on but had no picture, no audio and did not respond to the remote.  I turned the TV off using the manual power button then powered it back on... I got the LG power-on sound, but again no picture.  Powering it off then back on again resulted in no sound, no picture and a power light that flashes 3 times each time it turns on.  It does respond to the remote (for power on/off commands.)
      Is there a way to force-reload the firmware over USB if you don't have a picture?

      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.

      Undeniably hotstar is the worst user interface app in my new LG smart tv...browsing the app is a headache...can't turn on English subtitles for regional language shows and movies, where we can do in mobile app. My webos is 5. 0 version, still I am facing the issue...very dissapointed in hotstar and LG tv..

      Hello friends,
      I have setup a home network in Windows 10, I think it uses DLNA. I can play all the files from the computer or the USB stick in the router with no issue but the external subtitles (correctly named) are not working in my 65C9, only internal ones. 
      If I access the same files in the network from a computer, there is no problem and subtitles are shown, it's only the TV not displaying them.
      Can someone help in how to make external subs work when played from a local network or what to check?
       
      Thanks
