My TV is driving me nuts!
I keep getting reminders for programs starting for programs I don’t watch or have never watched and 2. The tv even switches on for scheduled programs that I haven’t set.. actually I have only ever set one program reminder and that has now been deleted.
I can’t see any programs in the reminder page or anywhere in the tv programmer?
Short of resetting the tv I don’t know what else to try? And I don’t really want to do that until I know how the tv ended up like this? Plus I don’t want to have to reload and sign in to all my apps 😬
I am having problems receiving some satellite channels from Astra 19.2E on my LG TV UN71006LB. I reset the TV and used auto scan but the OS skips three of the five channels on one transpoder:
BBC World News Europe HD
Al Jazeera English HD
If I connect my 8yr old sat box to the same satellite cable, I can view these channels via HDMI so the problem is the TV which does, however, find and display around 100 channels, including several UHD channels. I deleted all the sat channels and tried manually tuning this one transponder:
Frecuencia: 11229 MHz
Tasa de símbolos: 22000 kS/s
The signal strength is 92% and quality 94% and according to Astra 1KR: 11229 V - LyngSat, there are 5 channels on this transpoder but the LG TV only finds the 2 pay channels, displaying “No CI module.”
Does anyone know why WebOS cant find the three free HD channels?
I have LG55UM7600 ,looking for tech specification where RAM & ROM info available.
I'd like to easily stream/cast some movie files (.mkv, .mp4 etc...) on my Ubuntu 21.04 PC to a LG Smart TV having WebOS 4.9.x.
Both TV and PC are connected on the same LAN network via ethernet cable!
My router does not provide any UPnP feature!
I tried to use (with no success):
- Kodi - enabled UPnP/DLNA and shared my library, then right clicked on a movie and ran "Play using", selected "TV" but I was not able to see anything on my LG TV (i went to Movies and Photos and did not see any remote device or other stuff) (does this method nroamlly work? Maybe there is something wrong with my Kodi / Router configuration? What screen do I have to access on the LG TV to see the DLNA devices?)
- Integrated Ubuntu "Media Sharing" (see https://ubuntuhandbook.org/index.php/2020/04/home-media-server-ubuntu-2004/) - same as above, I could not see any device from the TV when this option is enabled
- VLC UPnP feature - same as above
What options do I have, without buying any additional device like Chromecast, Raspberry PI etc...?
