Hi am trying to watch bt sport from my smart tv web  browser .. but every 5 mins it keeps cutting out and say it’s needs  memory . Iv got a memory stick in my tv but it’s keep saying  flash drive .... wot ever that means .. can you help 

The web browser is only designed for light browsing (there is a link somewhere on the forum to the official LG statement) and not for streaming media.  BT needs to be cajoled in to producing a compatible app for webOS.

You are wasting your time even trying to use an LG "smart" TV for streaming anything. It does actually say that you can stream in the TV's information, however this is a lie, LG have intentionally capped the memory on their TV's, they will be people who insist that the browser is not for streaming content, but just for checking your email and looking at Facebook, that's nonsense, again I will point to the fact that it states in the TV information that you can stream. Also if this is the case, why does other brands not have the same problem? The problem is that LG so called "Smart" TV's don't have enough on board memory, unlike say, an android TV that have up to 16 Gigs of memory and will let you load streaming apps such as Kodi. I have read on this very site, that many many people have the same problem and they have had this problem for years now. I myself have this problem, that if I try to watch a movie online or even through the Youtube app, you will constantly get the error message that the app needs to close to free up more memory. This in my opinion makes LG "Smart" TV's not fit for purpose and I deeply regret buying this expensive brick. People have complained to LG about this problem and LG have admitted that they do this, because they would break their term of agreement with this service providers, if they allowed people to stream content outside of these expensive pay to view apps. Ohh and by the way, good look trying to get LG to do anything about it, they don't give a shit about you.

Hi,

A user here who does not use his LG webOS TV's web browser for streaming content; as I'm happily streaming media through the dedicated apps, and is really happy with his SMART TV brick.  To say that other SMART TV platforms do not have the same issues in untrue, the first result from a Google search throws up this post:

If you start looking round forums for Samsung you will find many of the same issues with Tizen as there are with webOS.

When you talk about expensive pay-to-view apps there are other free-to-view options in the store, it may be that there are not the ones you want but this is down to content providers not producing the app.  The YouTube app is a constant source of discussion on the forum, but strangely (for me at least) BBC iPlayer, Amazon Video, ITV Player, Channel 4, Five, PLEX all seem to have no issues at all managing the memory available to them.

I myself, like I am guessing many others, purchased my LG webOS device with the expectation that it was going to be first and foremost a television and secondly it would provide dedicated apps for streaming content.  What I did not expect it to be was a full blown replacement for my desktop computer or a huge wall hung mobile like device. 

Would I like to see LG engage with webOS TV users in a better way, well yes of course.  Do LG do well managing a customer's expectations vs reality, sometime.

George I have looked around and I did not see any Android TV's that suffer from lack of memory. There is a huge difference between Android and Webos, not only in the pathetic amount of memory (less than 1Gig to Androids 16Gig), but the totally lacking apps in the totally lacking app store.

So why is there no support for apps like Kodi with LG? You say that is down to the content providers not producing the app? I find that hard to believe, because they have provided an app for every other platform... just not LG, I would go so far as to say that this is down to LG, because they don't want people to get out of paying for streaming content through the likes of Netflix, who they have a contract with. There is even a discussion that LG admitted this much, stating that they "cap" the memory, so people can not stream content, because they would break their contract with these providers. If this is true, they have 100% broken their terms of service.

If there is a problem with other so called "Smart" TV's then it just goes to show you have these companies all shaft people, misleading them into buying something that is not fit for purpose. I could have just paid for a normal HD TV and bought an Amizon firestick, Roku or even a Playstion 3 or Xbox, any number of other media content providers, for far less then I paid for this TV, that can not even open two web pages at once, or even play a few videos in the Youtube app without shutting down.

I keep hearing this excuse that these "Smart" TV's browsers are not for streaming, but just for checking emails and looking at Facebook, However it states in the TV's on board information that you can indeed stream movies though the web browser. It also states that you will defiantly have problems with the lack of memory. This is hidden and I never got to see this information until after I bought this TV. None of the sales people told me any of this, they all said that you can absolutely stream movies online. These are people who indirectly work for LG and represent LG every time they sell an LG product.

 LG don't advertise any of this and they absolutely deny that they are even aware of any of these problem.... even though it is all over this very site. So that tells me that they either don't a monkies, or they just cant be bothered to even read any of the complaints from the people stupid enough to buy their products. 

What a scam.

George I have no idea where you get all your apps on your LG smart TV the only apps I get for streaming are Netflix and Utube all others are foreign languages and are useless to me! My previous LG I got Dailymotion but this new LG has nothing like that! This is also a new LG!

I know it is not my computer or main streaming device but if i want to stream i should be able too!  Enough said! No excuses! LG is not updating me with the apps they have provided to you or many others!

      TV model: 49 UH770T 
      I used 6000 hours. All four corners start to have struck pixels, this is very disappointing us after spending INR 1,00,000. I am sure this should have been tested products for such high value. How would I customer will recommend LG Smart TV for family and friends if the product manufacturing is not worth the money spent on?
      regards,

      On an LG CX 55, two minutes into episode 4 -- "The Tomb" -- of the series Moon Knight on Disney+ there is a scene with statuettes in niches each lit by an oil lamp. As the flames flicker, dark blotches jump around some of the niche walls.
      These are certainly unintended artifacts.
      Can someone confirm wether this is a CX (only) issue?

      First in the World to Receive ISO 13849-1 Certification for Mobile Service Robots,
      LG Confirms Its Leadership in the Field of Robot Safety Technology

      SEOUL, June 28, 2022 — LG Electronics (LG) has again proven its technological capabilities and commitment to creating safe, new innovations for a better life, becoming the first company in the world to receive the ISO 13849-1 certification* for its safety controller module utilized in mobile service robots. The new certification applies to LG’s advanced safety controllers for robots and was issued by Det Norske Veritas (DNV), an international accredited registrar and classification body headquartered in Norway.
      LG’s newly developed safety controller for robots ensures the highest level of operational safety and reliability by actively managing robots’ settings, monitoring signals from robots’ sensors in real-time and providing protective deceleration or stop-control whenever any risk is detected.
      Composed of only one module, LG’s safety controller boasts a significant advantage over conventional controllers – it can be easily adapted according to the individual specifications of each robot, or to meet the unique requirements of each customer.
      Previously, manufacturers had to analyze and evaluate every single aspect of functional safety for each robot they produced, but this is no longer the case thanks to LG’s sophisticated controller. This is expected to help the company authenticate and launch new service robots, such as those from its well-known LG CLOi ServeBot and LG CLOI GuideBot series, more quickly than before.
      A leader in the fast-changing robotics industry, LG has accumulated a wealth of data and knowhow through many decades of tireless innovation. The company has introduced a wide variety of robot solutions optimized for settings such as hotels, hospitals and restaurants, and leveraging its diverse technological capabilities, including in the areas of autonomous driving systems, sensors, artificial intelligence and cameras.
      Recently, the company announced its full-fledged entry into the next-generation logistics robot market with the launch of LG CLOi CarryBot, developed in collaboration with CJ Logistics, one of South Korea’s largest parcel delivery firms.
      “As autonomous robots for both industry and consumer applications are becoming more common, the field of robot safety technology continues to grow in importance,” said Dr. Baek Seung-min, head of the Advanced Robotics Lab at LG Electronics. “We are leading the way in this critical area, leaning on our considerable technological capabilities and real-world experience in applied robotics to provide the highest level of functional safety for the next-generation of autonomous robots.”

      LG Acquires AppleMango Together with GS Energy and GS Neotek,
      Securing Advanced EV Charger Development Capabilities

      SEOUL, June 27, 2022 — LG Electronics (LG) today announced it has acquired South Korean electric vehicle (EV) charger solutions provider, AppleMango Co., Ltd., jointly with GS Energy and GS Neotek. The acquisition is expected to accelerate the growth of LG’s EV charging solution business and enable the company to take advantage of future business opportunities.
      This strategic move, combined with LG’s own expertise and wealth of experience in both B2C and B2B segments, will enable the company to create fully-featured charging stations boasting a user-friendly interface and real-time control/management. LG continues to strengthen its EV charging solution business leveraging its exceptional digital signage technologies – specifically, its IP-rated outdoor digital display with sturdy, dust- and water-proof enclosure.
      Established in 2019, AppleMango has developed proprietary technologies and systems, including a slim, fast charger, to meet the rising global demand for EV charging solutions. In addition to the company’s market-leading charging tech, LG will secure access to the necessary operational infrastructure by working closely with GS Energy and GS Neotek. Both GS companies have considerable experience in operating EV charging stations and related businesses.
      The new acquisition will help LG to become an integrated solutions provider, bringing together its new charger development capabilities and existing in-house-developed EV charging management system. Moreover, the move is expected to create synergy with LG’s ongoing efforts in the area of vehicle components, including the development and supply of EV batteries and adjacent products, such as energy storage system (ESS) and energy management solutions.
      “The EV charging market is expected to grow rapidly due to the surging demand for more eco-friendly vehicles,” said Paik Ki-mun, senior vice president of LG Electronics Business Solutions Company. “Leveraging our know-how and experience in the B2B sector, we will offer customized, integrated vehicle charging solutions for diverse customers, enhancing the competitiveness of our existing business and ensuring our readiness for future opportunities.”
      LG now boasts a comprehensive EV business portfolio, with the recently-launched EV charging solution business joining other LG-owned concerns, including the LG Vehicle component Solutions (VS) Company, ZKW Group and the LG Magna e-Powertrain joint venture. This year, LG will establish an EV charger production line at LG Digital Park in South Korea, and aims to provide customized charging solution for various settings, such as private residences, shopping malls, hotels and public institutions, in the near future.
