LG to Update 2014 TVs to webOS 2.0


Alex

Question

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.

Article said first half of 2015 - but we are now into the second half and no sign.  :unsure: 

If lack of RAM is an issue, maybe they could make a requirement that an (approved) fast USB stick needs to be permanently plugged in to ask as virtual memory, and offload backgrounded apps and programme guide to that.

I do not think that you can use a USB external, that resulting in television in 2014 to be insufficient is the ram ddr3 second level, ie tv 2014_2015:
ram tier 525MB
ram second level
2014 = 256Mb
2015 = 512Mb
So this is the main reason why currently the 2014 tv show defects from us complained, the RAM at times, perhaps due to the kernel, which manages the best presents those "lag and out of memory that we find.
In fact if you go to see the instruction manual of the model eg 42lb650 inside found the block diagram of the system, you compare it with the new 42lf652, you will see that the difference is that, lg was very clever on this point, has also changed the manager refresch video to be able to say that they are two different TV, but is essentially the exact same TV, with the corrections that cover 'design error than stated in the advertisements of the sale of TV 2014 vebos 1.0.
 The shameful thing is that in all 'today have not remedied this design gap, treating its customers badly that for a whole they year  are undergoing this.

Hello Simon,

 

Good to find this forum.

 

I've got an LG 49UB8500 wich I bought early 2015, so I believe it is a 2014's webOS 1.x.

 

I tried to update my firmware through config menu, but the latest version available for my TV is 1.4.

 

I wonder if this is the fact my locale is configured for Brazil, but might have be other issues.

 

So, I'd like to know if could advise me if it is possible to update/upgrade from webOS 1.4 to 2.0 and how the path to get it.

 

Here follows my TV's data:

 

Model 49UB8500-SA

Software 05.00.70

WebOS 1.4.0-2316 (afro-Ashley)

 

Hope you can "light the candle of my wisdom" and help me out on this issue.

 

Thanks in advance.

 

Best regards,

 

Sérgio Gusmão

      Hi everyone, I'm Chloe and I just signed up. I'll cut straight to the chase. I'm currently using the LG TV (webos 3.0) of a friend while she's away for a few months and I constantly get prompted to update the firmware. She says she's never updated it as she doesn't care and everything was working fine anyway, and told me to just disregard it. So, I'm not gonna do it, but that reminder is doing my head in as it pops up every time I turn the TV back on.

      Since I couldn't find anything in settings to turn it off, last month I blocked a bunch of addresses at router level and it did work for several weeks, as I wouldn't get the reminder any longer.

      Here's what I blocked after sniffing out addresses that the TV checked out right before the reminder appeared:
      link hidden, please login to view Now, the message has started popping up again over the past few days. Yesterday I tried adding a bunch of other addresses, but no dice.

      Do you have any suggestions about how to definitely kill that reminder once and for all? Thanks in advance.

      I am developing an app wich is a video player for an iptv provider.
      The app is based on html5, css and javascript.
      At this point everything done till now is working and tested in 5 different browsers and in a Samsung smart tv.
      The problem is that when I installed this app in a LG tv it messed up all the interface.
      After searching for the problem I discovered that the use og css grid was the problem.
      LG WebOs doesn't have support for the grid system? The css grid exists at least from 2017.
      Any clues on how to solve this problem or I have to rewrite one version of the app only for the LG?
       
      Thanks for any help.

      Samsung has made fridges with touchscreens before. LG has made fridges with doors that turn transparent to show you the inside. This year at CES 2018, those two ideas are finally merging into one with LG’s new InstaView ThinQ smart refrigerator, which features a 29-inch touchscreen that becomes transparent if users knock on it twice.
      LG actually tried this two years ago, with a version called the Smart InstaView Door-in-Door that ran a full version of Windows 10, but it’s not clear that the company ever shipped the Windows version.
      This version uses the touchscreen to manage your food using LG’s webOS software and Amazon’s Alexa, which will let you tag food with virtual stickers and expiration dates and get automatic reminders when things are running low or about to go bad. There’s also a wide-angle panoramic camera on the inside of the fridge that will let you remotely view your fridge while you’re out and about to check and see if you’re actually out of milk or not.

      Unfortunately, the only image that LG has shared showing the fridge is a low-resolution shot on its YouTube page banner, but it seems that you’ll be able to still use the screen while it’s translucent, allowing you to tag food directly in a vaguely augmented reality-esque move.
      LG is also touting how all of its ThinQ kitchen gadgets can talk to each other to make kitchen tasks easier. So your ThinQ fridge can talk to your EasyClean oven, which will help you cook food through step-by-step instructions from the recipe app from your fridge. Then, your EasyClean oven can notify your QuadWash dishwasher about the kind of meal you cooked, so it can more efficiently select a wash cycle for that dish. Of course, all this requires spending thousands of dollars replacing every appliance in your kitchen (and if this all works as well as LG claims it does), but it’s still an intriguing vision of a Jetsons-like future utopia.
      No price or release date for the InstaView ThinQ refrigerator or any of LG’s other new appliances have yet been announced.

      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?
