Short answer: Something on my network is causing the crashes.
I had an extra router, so I put it between my network and the TV.
Netflix no longer crashes, and other apps no longer give me the dreaded, "This app will now restart to free up more memory" error.
Longer answer: Netflix would regularly crash out to Live TV after 20-40 minutes of play. I've been on LG support with this for months. They've replaced the main board twice, and took it off-site where the problem could not be replicated.
I reset the TV and connected it to my smart phone data plan (luckily just upgraded to 10 GB). No crashes. Put the TV back on my network, crashed after half an hour.
I took the network cable out of the TV and plugged it into a spare WiFi router. This creates a small network of only one device (the TV). I no longer get crashes.
Unfortunately, this kills local network features like DLNA/Plex streaming and wireless display mirroring, but all Internet apps like Netflix and YouTube work flawlessly.
I plan to narrow down which device(s) on my network is the cause of the crashes, but after 10 months of fighting this I'm just going to enjoy some 4K streaming for a while. If I learn anything new, I'll post it here.

I've got LG 42LB650V-ZN webOS 1.4.0-2525.
Till yesterday Netflix worked perfectly but now I can only start any video from beginning. When I try to continue watching previously paused video or try to move forward, than I recieve an Error:
"We're having trouble playing this title right now. Please try again later or select a different title" tvq-pm-100
I've already tried restarting Tv, signing out and in, reinstalling Netflix, unplugging cables, restarting router without any effect.
I hope someone know what to do.
I have a question in using SmartShare on LG WebOS 2.0 (my LG TV is 43UF770T, a 2015 model).
Recently I often use the TV to view pictures from files located in my NAS through DLNA capabilities in SmartShare app. I found out that when I view pictures with resolution smaller than 4K, then the pictures are shown in the center of the TV screen and cannot be shown full screen (automatic best-fit). This is quite annoying because when viewing older photos taken from old phones with 1920 x 1080 resolution for example, then the picture will look small because it is not shown full screen.
For comparison, when viewing video files, the TV automatically resizes the images until best-fit full screen, i.e. video with smaller resolution than 4K still shown full screen. This is exactly what I want.
Does anyone here know how to get full screen image shown for smaller pictures (auto resize upscale to best fit full screen), just as with video files in SmartShare?
Many thanks in advance.
Three weeks now I can't view Netflix (UK). I have asked my broadband supplier Virgin to reset DNS(they say they have done it but how does one check that), I've reinstalled the app a few times now, reset the hub, factory reset the TV, which is directly connected to the hub. No change after all that. Everything else works well.
What can I do now?
