Recommended Posts

greetings,

I decided to buy an LG smart 3D TV 55 inch class , but I am confused about something and I would looooove to get some opinions.

within my budget it's down to 2 options : 1st option the 55LB652T which is smart tv full hd 3d with web os the latest UI , 2nd option the 55UB830T which is smart tv UHD 4k 3d but with netcast .5 the previous UI.

so you see my problem, i want the uhd and the web os... it would be really awesome if LG makes update from netcast 4.5 to web os

My advice will be just ignore smart TVs or 4K TVs in a whole, get a media player which can do all that. But the truth is that's not that easy to do. Almost everyone want one system that does everything.

So what I would tell you is, do your best to ignore LG webos, because you would regret it at the end. Nothing works as advertised. A lot of bugs which never gets fixed.

If you still want a 4K then get a Samsung. I'm not a fun of Samsung but their TVs function as advertised. They don't get stuck or get out of memory error when streaming or watching satellite TV.

ok here's what I did guys and I would really appreciate your help, I went to the stores and I bought 2 TVs they are saying that I have 7 days return policy, so I have one week to play with these TVs and then keep one and get refund for the other.

I bought the LG 55UB850 ( uhd,3d, smart tv webOS)  and the samsung 55HU8500 ( the flat nOT the curved version, also uhd, 3d, smart tv )  both Tvs with magic remotes and all... now here's my thoughts so far the samsung os has the flash player so it can read any video without an issue the LG does not because of the abscence of the flash player!! for the picture quality I have to say it's a draw they are both pretty good, except for the fact the LG uses the IPS so it's more solid and robust panel but I am not sure that it's a great plus for home use... I saw few articles or reviews stating that the IPS has better viewing angles or vice vers ca  but I didn't notice that... now I have to say the LG magic remote is better also I noticed that pointer in the samsung os disappears when you enter some apps so you have to go back to the old way by clicking to move the pointer but on the LG it's always working inside all apps and I found that to be a big plus.

now regarding the operating systems it was hard for me because each one has its own advantages but generally I think the web OS is slightly better though I couldn't find multi screen function on the web OS unlike the samsung smat hub where I can have 2 screens simultaneously like web browsing and watching tv at the same time...

bottom line  guys I am confused and still not sure what to chose so please help me out and if you know any other details let me know I am going to take your advise

thanks a lot

Well to help you make the choice, you should try this also:

1) go to the YouTube apps of both TVs and try to play a video longer than and hour and see what happens.

2) if you've got a tablet or even your phone, try to steam a movie to the TV's also for an hour.

3) do the same with the browser. Either from YouTube or any other site. Search for movies, videos longer than 45min.

4) when playing movies, pause and restart and also change apps, to test the multifunction capabilities if LG. It didn't always work as expected.

Cheers.

Dude every webos 1.x FW has got that problem. So if it has webos then it gets out of memory.

Viktor:

- while the TV was running

- I unplugged the power cord directly from TV

- after a few minutes put back in

- started the TV

 

Hope it will help you too.

 

Otherwise

 We have been notified of an "out of memory" and moreover, it has already been fixed in the new update 04.45.04. Unfortunately, this firmware was not yet available at the server update, so make software update will be available only via USB drive. To update the software, please go to the link below and then select the tab "Update" and download the file Software_File (Version_04.45.04) .zip. To update required: Flash card up to 32 GB, formatted in FAT32. On this map, create a folder LG_DTV and write in it the file that you unpacked from the zip-archive. After this, insert the flash card into the TV and it will automatically prompted to update. To all the latest updates to take effect, you must reset the TV. To do this, open the Settings - General - Reset to factory.

Stop miss informing people.

How in the hell will unplugging the TV help with a memory leak?

Concerning the firmware version you just gave, the only thing it does is change the out of memory error with a different message; "app needs to be reset to free up memory"(how is that a fix?).

Also nobody has yet to confirm webos 2.0 hasn't got the out off memory issue too, so there's no need to be excited.

You sound like an lg fun boy or an lg correspondent. Which are you?

Lg is just using CNET to prevent people from returning their TVs on time. And therefore falling out of the warranty period.

      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?

      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.

      I have an LG 55UN74003LB smart TV running webOS 5.2.3-252113 with firmware version 3.23.45 and there is a pretty oldschool Samsung HT-DS400 5.1 home cinema system via opticla cable.
      Audio cutting in and out constantly when I am playing media that is utilizing the WebOS (e.g.: TV's Youtube app, Netflix, screenshare from mobile, playback from USB attached external drive).
      The sound is however flawless when I am using my PS4 or media-box that are connected via HDMI to the TV.
      I tried all the possible combinations of the digital sound output (auto, PCM , passthrough) and the format of the audio (MPEG, Dolby Digital/Plus, auto, HE-AAC) with no luck.
      Furthermore I purchased a Panasonic HDMI ARC exteactor and diverted TV audio to HDMI ARC port but the outcome was the same:
      Flawless audio from mediabox and PS4 and cutting in/out when using TV for playback.

      This leads me to beleive that cabling and my Samsung 5.1 sound system could not be the issue, 
      but there might be something wrong with the TV... possibly firmware issue or something.
      Has anyone faced the same, and if so, does a relatively easy fix exists?
