Streaming to LG TV +

Hi all,


 


As you will soon realise, I'm new to 'smart' things like TV's & Phones, and just invested in both.


I'm disabled, and struggle with things at times.


 


My Son - lives with his mother - streams from his phone to his tv, and been explaining it to me.


My phone is a Moto G 4GLTE, but I can't seem to get it to stream to the LG.


Any ideas please ?


 


 


Today, I am finding that my PC will stream to the TV.


I have just opened SmartShare and seen some video's from the PC.


 


One of them is a film: it has foreign subtitles. Can I turn that off at the tv ?


If not, can I turn that off at the PC ?


 


There are also a couple of youtube shorties that I did. On the TV, they are in the same folder.


How do I swap video's around from folder to folder ? Obviously I want to keep movies in their own folder etc.


Are they 'stored' on the TV, or purely stream every time I turn it on ?


 


This TV is a replacement one. When I bought the original one, I also bought a new 1tb Samsung HDD for it & saved a couple of things.


When I plug it into the replacement machine, I find that I can no longer play them.


LG say this is their doing.


Can I change the extension or something, to get them to play on my new set ?


(I know I can change the extensions to run .rec files from the Toppy onto the PC/TV)


 


Also, the replacement came with no black box for accessories,,,, nor batteries,,,, nor usb stick.


Again, LG say this is their doing.


 


When researching for my new, & long awaited TV set, I'm sure I saw an advert, or some write-up stating that it comes with a usb recording stick, but can't find it now. Can anyone point me in the right direction of any such advertising please ?


 


Thanks all for reading the ramblings of an old geezer.

Hi,

I'm a newbie myself however, I think the solution is relatively simple.

Bare in mind that your smart TV is a conduit to stream files from your PC.

 

So, all changes should conducted at the PC end.

 

I'm using windows 7 with the smart share program located in the Icon box.

smart share should've been installed on your PC when you first installed the smart share software.

 

1: Make any changes you want to your movies, pictures and music files

2: Double click the smart share icon to pen the smart share program

3: Click My Shared Content on the left which will list any folder (you can select any dive you have and any folder)

    to add a folder click the green plus folder icon top left, to remove click the minus folder.

 If not already done so Add folders

      Hi all,

      Thx

      Hi LG
      When playing a video file that is 3840 x 2160 (UHD) in OLED55CX (4K), there is a small black bar at the top and bottom. Is the TV supposed to upscale automatically to its 4k resolution which is 4096 x 2160? How do I upscale it without picture being cut of?
      Regards,
      Anish

      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 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?

      LG’s massive ultra-high-definition digital billboard overlooking New York City’s iconic Times Square became host to a three-phase visual spectacle that reflects the company’s efforts to engage with consumers directly around the seasons. LG’s first 3D content series designed for the billboard is a stunning visual display sure to make passersby smile. The new billboard content will run through the end of November.

      Taking full advantage of the Times Square billboard’s unique curved design, LG harnesses the power of forced perspective to display imaginative multi-dimensional 3D content which share the company’s core messaging that together, Life’s Good. Launching with an inspiring back-to-school message for the American audience, the 3D illusion begins with an explosion of crayons and swirling images from scissors to school buses, dancing around the screen, eventually spelling out LIFE’S GOOD before being buried by a multitude of crayons as the animation continues its loop.

       
      Over the past year LG has mobilized the Times Square billboard to engage, educate, and entertain consumers during the pandemic. From hosting the YouTube documentary “Life In A Day 2020” by Academy Award-winning director Kevin Macdonald to premiering the “Global Citizen VAX LIVE Extended Concert Sponsored by YouTube,” to encouraging climate action on ENERGY STAR® Day, LG has leveraged the space in Times Square to remind viewers that Life’s Good no matter how challenging our surroundings may be.

      “We hope that visitors in Times Square are not only awed by the visual splendor of the 3D display, but also that they will be inspired to believe that no matter the season, Life’s Good together,” said Peggy Ang, senior vice president of marketing, LG Electronics USA. “At the same time, our new 3D content series exemplifies how LG is innovating when it comes to engaging with consumers.”

      When will we get the SONYLIV app on WebOS ? 
      Even the WebOS browser doesn't support playing SONYLIV content due to lack of Flash support. 
      Strangely Chromecast also has issues.

      Hi,
      LG webOS also needs Flash Player Support  to Stream video content from any website. So that if some apps are not available then  one can visit the website and stream contents directly from the webOS browser.
      Thanks
