LG TV change country code webos 1.x

Question

It's been noted on various forums that some LG TV owners can change the country code through the ez adjust service menu.

For example:

http://forums.webosnation.com/lg-webos-tv/328085-hulu-plus-netflix-overseas-lg-webos-tv.html

It appears the instructions covered in the link above are for webos 2.0 versions.

 

 

Changing country code has allowed many users to download apps not available in your own country.

 

A small amount of forums state that some LG TV owners cannot change the country code through the ez adjust service menu.

For example:

http://mybroadband.co.za/vb/showthread.php/687684-LG-WebOS-TV-s-cannot-change-region-to-get-Netflix-etc?p=15362222&viewfull=1#post15362222

Some of those owners report a different menu, most likely those users NOT using webos 2 and are using webos 1.0 or webos 1.5

 

In Australia on my TV I see -

7. Country Group
  Country Group Code 19
  Country Group AJ
  Country --

8. Area option
  Area code 263
  Wi-fi Frequency 7
  Lang Gr. ALL
  Teletext Lang Gr. W_EU
  I II Save On
  HDEV Off
  MONO Off
  Location 0
  Isolator 0

I found that the South African user posted that they had a similar menu:
http://mybroadband.co.za/vb/showthread.php/687684-LG-WebOS-TV-s-cannot-change-region-to-get-Netflix-etc?p=15362222&viewfull=1#post15362222

 

Comparison between Australian and South African users posting about the issue -

Area Option

Area Code -

South Africa: 259
Australia: 263

Wi-fi frequency -

South Africa: 3
Australia: 7


I note that the difference between the Area Code between the two countries (263-259) equals 4.
Further, the difference between the Wi-fi frequency between the two countries (7-3) equals 4.

I suspect that it is possible to change the country and thereby download apps from another country.
I think the USA Area code is 02.

 

Anyone figured out how?

 

Perhaps posting up your Country Group Code and Area Code (IF you have webos 1.x) may be a step towards this process.

      Hi,
      I am new to WebOS and trying to setup my environment. I followed the same steps mentioned here:
      http://webostv.developer.lge.com/sdk/install-instructions/installing-sdk/
      After completing these steps, I found four new applications installed in my system: webOS TV CLI, webOS TV IDE, Oracle VirtualBox, webOS TV Emulator v3.0.0. Now, when I am trying to run Emulator, nothing is happening. I am using macOS High Sierra.

      Can someone please help me out in this? ☹️

      Just got off the phone to lg support. I was told the web browser shuts down when attempting to stream video ON PURPOSE! Furthermore, once you stream anything from the internet, the cache fills up, does not clear, and prevents the installed apps from functioning properly.  I was told that the OS is a web browser NOT a web streaming service and if they allow customers access to stream video they will be in breach of their contractual agreement to the companies who have apps on the TV. This clearly doesn't happen on tablets or phones, so their logic for creating a sub par product is utter bollocks. I specifically asked the salesman if I could stream video from the internet and was told absolutely yes.  (Of note: I need to watch presentations by medical professionals, NOT ILLEGAL CONTENT. Ted talks is an example)  When I pointed this out to Lg customer service they re-iterated that a web browser does not confer the ability to stream video. This is misleading the customer, and effectively censoring and filtering internet content.  This must stop!

      Every time I use the scrollwheel on the amazing LG remote for the 55" OLED55B7V TV nothing happens, until I realize I am scrolling in the wrong direction.
      For everyone not accustomed with PCs, ie the whole mobile generation and all of us on the Apple platform, the so called "natural" scrolling aka "inverted scrolling" is what feels right. If I want the content on my screen to go up to reveal more content, I scroll the wheel up. On PCs and WebOS, you scroll the viewport, not the content, so you have to scroll down to make the content move up.
      If it would be up to me, the default should be natural scrolling, but at least give me an option to change the scrolling behaviour! For me, the current behaviour is just jarring each and every time I want to scroll!
      Moving a viewport is the old paradigm. Moving the content, as you do every day on your phones and tablets and PCs with touch screens, is how we interact now.
