Sling TV app weaker on LG TV then on Roku


SteveK

Question

Disappointed in Smart TV.  Other than OTA TV through Tablo, most TV we watch is on Sling.  On the Roku app we can use the Sling DVR. But on the LG TVOS app, we can not.

I confirmed this with Sling and LG. Now when someone asks me about the TV I am tempted to suggest they get a UHD TV, but not bother with SMART.

 

Am I wrong? Something to be done?

Year 2022.....Brand new LG C1 just purchased and Sling app on LG TV still not working properly.  Come on LG!  Fix this please!  😂

I can log in and watch my local OTA channels, but the DVR section is empty as well as scheduled recordings.

On my Roku and other devices like my PC, Sling DVR recordings show up properly.

LG.  How long do we need to wait to have this working?  😤

Not wrong.  I called Sling first when I couldn't record or even find the cloud dvr in the LG Sling app.  Sling told me they are working on it but it would be good to hear what LG is doing as well.

Flash forward to 2022, Sling TV still not working properly.  😷

      I'm having this problem with LG Oled 65c16LA with WebOs Version 03.40.85
      When I turn off the TV, it goes into standby mode.
      After 2 minutes the red standby LED turns off and it is no longer possible to turn the TV back on with the remote or with the power on button.
      It is then necessary to unplug the power supply, wait a few minutes and reconnect it.
      So the TV goes back to standby and you can turn it on again. In use everything works.
      Is it a software problem? How can I solve it?
      Thank you

      Hello,
      I have a UJ701V tv from 2017. I get a random disturbance of the sound and picture and then the tv reboots. I have already removed the back cover and everything looks fine. According the logfile i have to replace the mainboard but i think the problem will stay.

      A few months ago after a firmware update, the one that says "SLING + FreeStream" across the screen on starting sling, each time the tv comes on, and sling was the last item open, it says network error, and if I exit sling loads fine.
      It only does this with Sling and my LG tv's.  Netflix doesn't do it and my Samsung and Visio don't do it.  None of my LG's did until that update.   It's like they're trying to go to a site before the TV's network is ready, and no retrying it.
      If I go to Netflix then turn off the TV, when I turn it back on Netflix loads just fine with no Error.
      I'm resetting these again.  I tried that multiple times and it doesn't fix anything.  Deleting the Sling app and reloading and updating doesn't help either.  This all happens on all 3 of my new LG's.

      I have an LG C2 Web OS TV and a Roku Ultra Model 4670RW.  The Roku comes with an option called "1-touch play" which allows you to switch the TV from between devices connected to other HDMI 2.1 inputs.  I have a Roku in one input, a DVD player in another, and a Directv Streaming box in another.  With this same setup on a Vizio V435-H11 TV, I am able to press the home/play buttons on the Roku remote and no matter which input I'm watching, it will switch to the Roku.  Same with pressing remote buttons on the DVD player and Directv remotes - the TV will switch to that device.  But with the LG C2 TV, none of the switching takes place when pressing the same buttons on the remotes for the other devices.   I have enabled the "1-touch play" on the Roku remote (settings/system/control other devices/1-touch play), and I have enabled the IR Setup (settings/Remotes & Devices/Remotes/Enhanced Voice Remote/Setup Remote for TV Control/IR setup).  I cannot enable the CEC setup on the Roku Remote, but that doesn't affect the 1-touch play switching function on the Vizio TV so I don't think that plays into the limitation on the LG C2.  I have also enabled the CEC (Simplink) function on the LG C2 (General/Devices/HDMI Settings/Simplink (HDMI-CEC)).   I've read some solutions online and have done a system restart on the Roku as well as disconnecting all devices from power, disconnecting all the HDMI cables, waiting 5 minutes, and reconnecting all.  I am using all new 2.1 HDMI compatible cables.  Any body else having this problem with using a Roku Ultra and an LG C2 TV and found a solution?   Thanks!
