B6 - All Streaming Movies Stopped Working


Recommended Posts

I have my B6 OLED on the latest firmware since it came out early May.

All of my movie content yesterday stopped working...all of them.  Amazon, HULU, Netflix, Google, YouTube, VUDU:  none of my movies will play.  When you start a movie, I only get the initial loading and then most of the apps just a blank screen with nothing else occurring.  In the Netflix app, I can get a progress display slowly up to 25% and then it stops.  In Google and YouTube, I'll get a not authorized to play this content message.  But while still in YouTube, video content plays fine; just my movie purchases won't play.  It's not my internet as the same apps play just fine from other devices and I have a 85 Mbps download.

I haven't reset the TV yet as I wanted to see if anyone else is having the same problem before I have to go redo all my custom video settings and reinstall apps.

Ended up having to reset my TV...twice.  I tried uninstalling/reinstalling apps but didn't work.  The first TV reset work, but I was then getting a popping sound when hitting "back" in all the apps; so had to do another reset to fix that too.

I've had this TV for 3 months, and I've had to reset the TV at least twice each month.  Getting tired of these resets to fix problems.

I just bought my B6 last Friday and one of the problems that has surfaced has been the same as yours. When I try to launch LG's Netflix or Amazon or seems like any app, it takes me to I a search screen from a couple days ago and every time I try to get rid of the search screen, the TV takes me back to my starting point before launching any app, an infinite circle! 

I do use a Tivo mini along with a wired internet. So I tried rebooting my Tivo mini, and that cleared the problem. But it takes Tivo several minutes to reboot, this problem could get old real quick. If the problem keeps happening I will have no choice but to return the TV to Best Buy.

Do you use any media servers like Tivo with your B6?

      We have a 65UM7300AUE with software version 05.40.10. We have a Google TV dongle plugged into the HDMI 1 port and that is the input we use most of the time. Until recently every time we would turn the TV on it would default to HDMI 1 and the Google TV home screen would be the first thing we’d see. Life was good. Several weeks ago that changed and now the LG OS (I assume) home screen is the first thing we see. Then we have to use the LG remote to select HDMI 1 each time. We never used to have to do this or use the LG remote at all. Kind of annoying. We think we have HDMI 1 chosen as our default input but it doesn’t seem to matter. Any ideas on how we get things back to the way they used to be with the TV defaulting to HDMI 1 automatically?

      Hi,
      I recently bought an LG UK6500PLA TV (my first LG), but I have a difficult time streaming content (Wifi connected), e.g. Netflix series is streaming in low resolution.  The router is only 10 feet away from TV (but ethernet is not an option) and uses a 5GH frequency range.
      I have tried making a speed test at fast.com, for both the TV (through the Webbrowser) and for my laptop and iPhone. The speed test for TV showed 2.5 Mbps and my laptop and iPhone showed 110 Mbps. Can there really be such a big difference? I am starting to wonder if this might be a warranty issue?
      Do any of you guys have experience with bad Wifi reception on your LG TV or have any suggestions on how to fix it?

      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?
