This is absolutely critical given that x265 will become more and more popular, not to mention a lot of native 4K content is available in this format. What is the point of having a TV that can accept x265 format over USB and not over Wireless?

another plus one.

 

In fact, this is the main reason I purchased this TV as I'm a 4K content creator and I want to display client content over my local network.

 

I have contacted LG about this and not only will they not commit to a date when this will be done, they won't even commit to fixing it all. Ever.

 

I'm just about to return by £2k+ 55" LG OLED TV for this reason. OK and others. Apart from the picture quality, which is without doubt superb, it's just not very good compared to high end Samsung products.

 

For example:- single tuner only, no ITV Player or 4OD, only 3 HDMI ports oh but that's OK because you get SCART - SCART! it's 2016, who the hell wants SCART in 2016, stupid connector location (while I'm in rant mode), un-intuitive  cartoon operating system, which is fine if you like un-intuitive cartoon operating systems.  I don't.  etc, etc

 

So in summary, not Lucky, no Goldstar then. My first and last LG purchase. I really should have known better, although I didn't see any of this in all the glowing reviews I read before purchase.

      I am using the lg tv from 2 years and I found an amazing experience till now.
      But I like request about Play box TV app. Please add this app in store section so that I could download it on my tv. 
      It would be helpful if you respond to my email. This app is very demanding now a days as it comes with the excitel broadband service.

      I recently bought a LG TV with WebOS version 8.1 and have a frustrating issue.
      I have a usb disk with all my family photos & videos archive in it. 
      We love to browse through the pictures and videos on big screen.
      But current LG TV media player displays either pictures or videos. I want to see them in the order they were captured.
      It would be great to enable this feature when "Photos & Videos" filter is selected.

      Is there a way or another app to view photos & videos at the same time? (slideshow)

      Hi, I have the option to right click and pick the subtitles on my Mac when watching movies in the VLC Player, but I can’t do this on the LG OLED, though. I already renamed the subtitle file to be the exact same as the video file and I did have the SRT file in the same folder where the movie is. However, when I connect the hard drive to the TV, the subtitle still doesn't appear. The format of my hardrive is NTFS. Can anyone please offer some advice?
