So,again.Yoy tv have  WI-FI direct technology and Miracast (Screenshare) technology on TV and in laptop have Intel WIDI technology. Connect laptop to tv using Miracast and work fine.Into TV browse to Screenshare,not to wifi direct.Succes

      UPDATING YOUR FIRMWARE
       
      The firmware that powers your LG Ultra HD 4K Smart TV with webOS should be updated from time to time to enhance your experience and improve its operation. Thankfully, this can be done easily and quickly, right at home.
      Watch this quick video to learn more. Or follow the easy steps below to get started.
       
       
      HOW OFTEN DO I NEED TO UPDATE MY FIRMWARE?
      Firmware updates don't happen frequently, so you should be fine checking for updates every other month.
      HOW DO I CHECK FOR, AND DOWNLOAD, AVAILABLE FIRMWARE UPDATES?
      Before you do anything, make sure you have an Ethernet cord connected directly from your router to your television. Wireless Internet connections are not reliable enough for firmware updates.
      Use this diagram if you need help getting set up:

      ONCE YOUR TV HAS A WIRED CONNECTION, DO THE FOLLOWING:
      Press the MENU Click SYSTEM SETTINGS Then ABOUT Then SYSTEM UPDATES You'll be advised that your system is currently up to date or requested to select CHECK NOW for the latest update. If a new version is available, it downloads automatically. FIRMWARE UPDATES WILL ALSO UPDATE LG ULTRA HD 4K SMART TV AND LG APPS AT THE SAME TIME.

      Found multiplex application that use letsencrypt stop working in 30 September 2021 on LG WebOS 3.5. This appear to be wide spread multiplex version of WEBOS.

      Our current app is available on 4K/UHD LG television models running the following system software:
      webOS 3.0 webOS 3.5 webOS 4.0 webOS 5.0 No 720p or 1080p (“full HD”) sets are supported for our current app at this time.
      Note: Due to root certificate limitations with the device OS itself, only webOS 5.0+ devices support secure connections with a personal Plex Media Server. To allow connections to a personal server, devices running earlier webOS versions must be set to Allow Insecure Connections in the TV app settings and the Plex Media Server must be set to Preferred for the Secure Connections preference.

      LGTV had a new Sling TV app update which left me with no Channels option in Sling. I only have the Guide and Search Options. How can I get the Channels selection back?

      Hi,
      I'd like to easily stream/cast some movie files (.mkv, .mp4 etc...) on my Ubuntu 21.04 PC to a LG Smart TV having WebOS 4.9.x.
      Both TV and PC are connected on the same LAN network via ethernet cable!
      My router does not provide any UPnP feature!
      I tried to use (with no success):
      - Kodi - enabled UPnP/DLNA and shared my library, then right clicked on a movie and ran "Play using", selected "TV" but I was not able to see anything on my LG TV (i went to Movies and Photos and did not see any remote device or other stuff) (does this method nroamlly work? Maybe there is something wrong with my Kodi / Router configuration? What screen do I have to access on the LG TV to see the DLNA devices?)
      - Integrated Ubuntu "Media Sharing" (see https://ubuntuhandbook.org/index.php/2020/04/home-media-server-ubuntu-2004/) - same as above, I could not see any device from the TV when this option is enabled
      - VLC UPnP feature - same as above
      What options do I have, without buying any additional device like Chromecast, Raspberry PI etc...?

      Hi guys. I'm PRAYINGGGGGG someone will help. Heres my story:
      Model: LG WEB OS 65 inch UJ6300
       
      I started having issues last week when I tried the mirroring options  when suddenly PANDORA and all other APPS I want could not be found in the LG content store.
      I have tried my HP laptop (brand new, gift for Christmas) with Miracast BUILT IN
      MY samsung tablet & my 2 samsung galaxy cell phones (S 8 + & s 8 Note)
      The HP laptop worked & conntected for maybe 5-8 minutes and then disconnected. Cannot get it back again. The tablet & pphones wont even connect  They find the TV to connect to but then the TV says "unable to connect with screenshare try again"
      I called LG & was on the phone twice for over 2 hours being walked through EVERYTHING, even had to reset my tv to factory settings. nothing helped. so they gave me a cerrtified LG techinician. He came and could not help. He downloaded some 3rd party APP and it worked for a few minutes. But the actual miracast did not work. HEY...we just got this tv not even a month ago. its 2018. Why the HELL are we downloading 3rd party apps to mirror a damn screen?! Nope. I called LG back but they said due to his notes (he tried to say it was all 4 of my devices and the tv was fine) they are deeming the TV fine. WTF!!!??
       
      I dont want a new tv i just want a way to be able to screen any device. WITHOUT AN APP. Fuck for that Ill buy a regular non smart TV & invest 30 bucks in CHromecast!!! Am I wrong?!
       
      LG PLEASE address this issue. This should not be happening in friggan 2018!!!!
       
      I attached photos of the error i received when trying to connect
