Asking this hear, since I could not seem to find a better place... Wake on LAN only works for a few minutes after TV is turned off? If I turn of LG TV (WebOS 8.x) and then send a Wake on LAN (WoL) packet, it works. If turn off the LG TV, then I wait about 15 minutes or so, then send the same WoL sequence, using the same code, script, etc., it fails, the LG TV never turns on. THe LG TV is configured both for wired ethernet (preferred) and WiFi. Any idea why this behavior? It almost seems like the LG TV goes into standby, via phone app, remote, even CEC, etc., then drops from the network? Mobile is enabled on the TV, hence the phone app works. Why would the LG TV stop responding to WoL packets?
I have problems with one of my WebOS TVs which looks like a speed problem, but when I do a speed check on my iPhone from just a few feet away the connection speed looks fine. Thanks, Bob
Some tutorials explain how to do it.
We first need to root the TV with scripts such as RootMyTV, and then install dts_restore.
Both tools are free and available at github.
I'm not writing the links because I don't know if it's allowed in this forum and because I take no responsibility.
My question is:
Has anybody tried this process? Does it work?
The documentation says if you have any problem you can just factory reset the TV, but I don't dare to do it.

I recently updated the firmware on my LG43UH610V. Now I constantly get "Wired Lan cable disconnected" / "Wired network is connected" messages even while watching a video file from my NAS. The TV is connected and using the network while getting these messages. It has always been on a fixed IP address on the LAN.
I have a UJ701V tv from 2017. I get a random disturbance of the sound and picture and then the tv reboots. I have already removed the back cover and everything looks fine. According the logfile i have to replace the mainboard but i think the problem will stay.
