DVB-T2 crashes TV

10 posts in this topic

Hey! 

I hope that hasn't been covered a thousand times, but I can't find anything in terms of solutions:

 

All DVB-T2 channels crash my LG TV... switch off, reboot, and loop...

I saw some comments about this issue, so I'm not alone with it. What I'd like to know: Is there a fix? Some firmware I'm not aware of? It seems to be a problem since at least 10-2015 so... something even older?

 

Thanks for your answers! This is really annoying...

So what is your experience since the "Probebetrieb" has started on May 31, 2016?

Last time I checked the problem still persisted... I contacted tech support and they gave me an answer like "tech support is aware" with no further estimations or the like...

Sorry to hear. LG has such a bad support. If I knew before I may have gone with another brand.

Let's hope, that's the thing we got left.

Roman, I (still) have the same issue.

* I'm running right now 05.05.01 (beta)

* Sometimes I can watch dvb-t2 channels without issues

* Some dvb-t2 channels in my area are h264 encoded, others in h265. Is that the same in your area?

My quick research leads me to the conclusion that in my region (cologne, germany) it's exclusively h.265

 

Did you find out if it's connected with the codec if a channel works or not?

This is really annoying... Constant crashes and no fix. It's getting unusable.

Anyone else?

In TV settings, check HbbTV options (ON or OFF). Some of the DVB-T2 channels, here in Serbia, were making that my 42LB650V crash/reboot constantly. I had to turn off HbbTV option. After that there was no more crashes. Let me know whether this can help you too...

I've made my own test about a month ago with DVB-T2. First try didn't work because I was using the roof antenna (no T2-channels found, T(1)-channels yes). So I've built my own antenna using a coax-cable. Worked. Found all DVB-T2 channels in southern Bavaria, could watch the free channels, for the encrypted ones I didn't hava a smartcard.

Tested for 2hours with no problems using a LG 49UF850V (similar to 49UF8509)

DVB-T2 works in the Cologne/ Bonn area for me with the latest beta firmware pretty good!

      Model: 49UF850V and technically capable of receiving the recently started DVB-T2 service in Germany (device has a DVB-T2 tuner AND supports H.265). Firmware is 04.00.70. Location is Munich city center
       
      Problem: no new T2-channels are found in channel search. The "old" DVB-T channels are found and work like expected.
       
      Please fix this ASAP, LG. Otherwise, "Life is bad".
