LG Web OS 5.0 Smart TV? What happened to 4.0?

Recommended Posts

I'm not sure if this is real but saw published where they claim they have webos 5.0 on their LG TV.  See below.

webos 5.3

 

Note : You can’t directly go from WebOS 3.5 to WebOS 5.3 .

My experience after using LG LH 604 T Full HD Version review after using it for 4 months.

What did we checked before switching or buying this Television ?

  • The picture quality, price, Miracast to mirror my laptop screen and ability to stream 1080p  video without any problem.

Is there a non FHD version ?

  • Yes and the price is lower and all the specs same as that of FHD version.

Every thing in short after my 4 months of experience.

Pros

  • Super sharp display (FHD, IPS Panel) and viewing angles
  • Cheaper than other bands
  • Dust won’t settle on your screen, but on other parts dust may settle if you are living a dusty region
  • WebOS frequently updated with patches
  • Eye comfort mode
  • Good sound quality
  • Supports almost all video and audio formats like MKV, AVI, DiviX, AAC etc
  • Inbuilt apps for Netflix, YouTube, Amazon Prime Video and some country specific apps
  • Support for Miracast or screen sharing or Inter WiDi. Note WiDi is used only in old laptops models
  • Screen can be turned off, when playing only music.
  • Remote with pointer mouse, so you can type songs or movie names quickly in YouTube, Netflix etc on the on screen keyboard. Also when you connect or mirror your laptop screen to this TV, remote pointer can be used as mouse and there is scroller on the remote. But only double click supported, no right nor left clicks
  • Subtitles in the video is supported
  • 2 Years LG warranty (Note this is country specific, so do ask your seller about this)
  • Very less power consumption, screen consumes 4% of power, speakers consumes (20 Watt) 3% of total power input

Cons

  • TV lags
  • Sound mode can’t be changed quickly like picture mode
  • No support for wireless headphones
  • Web browser closes after we viewed around 15 1080p YouTube videos, it says out of memory and during restart of the browser the crashed web page is shown for us to continue playing videos
  • In built YouTube app settings has no option to set resolution of video to play only 1080p videos
  • Universal remote costs around $75 if you need to buy a new one, note : till now there are no probs with my universal which I clubbed with my set top box (CISCO one) and all functions are supported
  • During Miracast laptop mouse lags and still now I don’t know how to solve this issue.
  • Documents like docx,PDF can’t be opened from flash drive or hard drive, but from Miracast its possible.

Does it support USB mode of android mobiles ?

  • My Sony Xperia USB mode supported but my lenovo USB mode not supported and this is weird!

Final Thought

For this price and with this much features loaded, we say its a good go one.

If you need any info or clarify any doubts about this model, just drop a comment and I will answer that for you in a working day.

That’s just the software version that their TV is on, not the webOS version.  To view the webOS version you click the TV Information button that sits right below the check for updates button.

In other words, there is no webOS 5 yet, and given that web OS 4.0 has yet to be released to the public there probably won’t be a web OS 5 for at least another year.

      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...?

      I am creating a streaming application, where user can access a list of mkv files from my server, Mkv is not supported in web browsers and it is not loading properly within my webOS web app.
      I cannot modify my files to another video format.
      Is there a native player for LG WebOS that I can embed into my web application ?
      Is there any video player with web sdk to play mkv on a smart tv.
      Ps: my videos are working well on chrome, as for Firefox or Safari, it tells me that the format is not supported.

      Just getting the runaround from LG, only want a baseline figure, they sent me this
       
      , our technicians have explained that we cannot calculate the unit's actual power consumption when not in standby because there are too many factors that could affect this calculation. These factors include how many pixel refreshers are run, whether the unit is connected to the internet, external devices connected, speakers connected, sound systems connected, HDD connected and recording set ups. I am afraid that we consequently cannot answer your question.

      we all know LG are not helpful to customers , but there’s no need to keep proving it.
      this TV has a good energy rating so figures must be available, they either dont care or understand what I am asking
       
      thanks

      The problem that my QNAP NAS Mediaserver disappears from the WebOS Home screen and from the Home dashboard happens irregularly and unpredictably almost daily. The only way to get it back is to reset WebOS to its initial (factory) settings. After I do that, it always reappears on the Home scree/Home dashboard. I have no idea why this happens, it even happens after I watch an hour of movie content from the NAS and then want to browse through the files on the NAS: it suddenly is not accessible anymore. I tried to tweak (a lot of) the NAS settings but nothing helps.  
      My NAS has a fixed IP in my home LAN. Is it possible to connect to it with the IP address? 
      Any other suggestions how to remedy this tedious problem are welcome!

      In the file attached is a photo of the Home dashboard with the Mediaserver present.

      LG One:Quick Flex is designed for a wide variety of business use scenarios such as small group meetings, one-on-one discussions and group presentations but is also an excellent option for hospitals, schools and homes where people may be working, learning or talking to other parties remotely. With a video camera that captures a wide 88-degree field of view, the display rotates to work in both landscape and portrait modes and features a split-view mode for easier multitasking. A microphone and camera, intuitive interface, full touch pen support and whiteboard functionality complete the package. One:Quick Flex can be mounted to a movable stand for easy transport between the shared meeting space to the CEO’s corner office for an important video conference.
      One:Quick Share For Wireless Screen Sharing

After the simple connection process, users can share their PC screen by simply pressing the button on the One:Quick Share USB dongle. Switching the source device is just as easy, with up to four sources able to connect to LG digital signage products simultaneously. And with One:Quick Share, setting adjustments of connected LG signage products such as volume, picture mode and screen brightness can be performed without a remote control.

Unfortunately , I can't find any solutions to connect my Tv to Google Home Hub.
      So, is there a way to connect this two devices without any other equipemnt (like Chromecast )?
       
      Thanks in advance!
