Just bought an LG 55UB9500, highly disappointed

Question

Hello all,

Longtime Samsung user here.  Got a really good deal on the 55UB9500 so decided to give it a try.  First, beautiful set, great picture but OS SUCKS!  Either I am doing something wrong, or LG got it wrong. I have the set directly connected via ethernet. VERY fast internet (300 plus GB/S) I have constant issues with Pandora and Netflix.  First it was pandora, it would start and play, then I would get some sort of error.  Then it would play, and have these huge delays between songs.  Very disappointing.  Then Netflix. At first it seemed to work okay. I thought it took a LONG time for it to load a movie. It would hurry up to the 25% mark and then sit there for about a minute.  Now, half the time I get errors that they cannot play this selection at this time. Then I get the movie to play and it will play for about five minutes and do the same thing.

I went to the web and searched and found that people have deleted Netflix and started over. I can't even get that to work. When I follow the directions, going to settings/Network/Web OS apps (or what ever it's called) I get a screen about unlinking my devices or something like that and cannot get to the actual apps.  I then did the up up up left right left thing to get to the log off menu and did that. logged back in but same thing.. I tried last night for over half an hour to get Netflix to work until I finally ran out of patience.  I never had issues like this with any of my Samsung Tv's and not beginning to think I made a mistake but hope not. I love the TV otherwise.  I am hoping that perhaps the OS 2.0 might fix it?  That is of course if that ever happens. 

 

If anyone else has had issues like this and has figured out a way to fix it, please share that with me.  I keep going over to Amazon.com, and looking at the Roku 4 but I really don't want to have to buy that, after just buying this new TV that's supposed to do all this for me. Plus I have read that people are having trouble with the Roku 4 and some LG tv's...Sigh..

 

Thanks, and sorry for the rant. 

 

Cheers,

 

John

Well I can tell you that after some time you will give up on using WebOS, the OS is very unstable and useless! I have bought cheep laptop and connect to my TV so I can have "smart" TV. Since the day I have purchased the TV until now the TV have received two updates but again I can say this is the most useless device I have evet purchased in my life. To be clear I don't talk here about using the TV as a TV the picture quality, 3D, magic remote and all other TV futures are totally OK.

I have the same set but haven't had any problems with netflix, youtube, or 3dnow.  Those are really the only apps I use though.  The interface is definitely a little hitchy at times though.  Like you said, I hope the WebOS 2.0 upgrade will fix that if it ever comes.  3DNow will only stream 5.1 surround in WebOS 2.0 for some reason.  Netflix does 5.1 fine.

 

On a side note have you use the 3D much?  I've noticed that I really have to be seated at the vertical sweet spot to limit the 3D 'ghosting'.  Sitting up or leaning down affects the convergence greatly.  I have another passive set, a Panasonic 1080p, that I've always been impressed with regarding the ghosting.  One of the big reasons I got this 4k set was to have passive 3D in full 1080 (since passive will half the resolution of the tv in 3D) but the ghosting is disappointing.

Well I fixed it. Reset the damn thing to factory defaults and that seems to have cleared up the issue.  Everything works great now (except now I have to redo my calibration).  As for the 3D, We've only played with it a bit but it works really well. Of course our two chairs sit pretty much right in front of it.  I didn't notice any ghosting.  We never even opened the glasses that came with it. We used some we had from our last go to the theatre movie.

Cheers!

I have also noticed that the 3D "sweet spot" it fairly small, but still large enough not to be an issue. If I stand up then the 3D picture gets bad ghosting, but as long as I'm sitting down it looks great. It definitely helps to have a TV mount for the wall that tilts so you can angle it just right.

 

As for the OS I haven't had any issues. We use Netflix and 3DGO almost exclusively and they both work quickly and the picture quality on both is great.

      Hello all,
      I believe this problem started after i accidently started and immediately cancelled the download of a app. After this I am unable to install or update any app evem after resetting to initial settings.
      This should be the exact problem found here https://www.lgwebos.com/topic/1918-because-i-can however the solution seems to require a new update. Help?

      I have a LG TV model 55EG9A7T and I have been trying to connect my sennheiser bluetooth headphones using the wireless sound sync for the longest time but it is not able to find the device under available devices.
      I tried to call in LG tech support - but no one seems sure whether only LG brand headphones are supported. 
      Does anyone know if only LG headphones are supported?

      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,

      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.
