What can I do to get my TV to use the full broadband speed that I've got available. My tv is a 55EC930V and is using a wired connection to my router.
My broadband is currently running at 125Mbps. When I use any other devices such as a laptop, mobile phone, etc the speed using fast.com returns anything between 120 to 130 MBps.
But, when I use the web browser on the TV, it always maxes out at 33Mbps. This value is reported by fast.com.
If I use the speed test in the Netflix app, this returns approx 29Mbps. I never get anything higher, so what's limiting it? The same problem occurs for YouTube and that's the only other App that I've got installed.
If the network board in the TV is supposed to be 10-100Mbps, why don't I get 100 Mbps? I know I won't get 125Mbps because LG never puts 1Gbps in any of it's TVs.
TV's a UK7700PUD. I've scoured the settings, but can't find anything that might let me export bookmarks to, say, USB. Although I did see in the TV's settings you can create/sign in to an LG account... Any chance I could use that to sync bookmark data in the cloud for an LG account? Wanna be sure here before I resort to manually copying them. Thanks.

Does LG hire real software engineers with actual computer science degrees? Or do they just piggyback on software engineers that build webOS for free?
My LG 77" OLED C2 is far from "smart" ... after a long online chat with LG tech support because my TV decided it would connect my Bose Q45 Bluetooth headphone then immediately disconnect. After hours of removing the device in the Bluetooth list, pairing the Bose headphones again, still same problem. Keep in mind my headphones were working fine 1 day ago.
So the end result was:
1. Disable Quick Start (from settings)
2. Turn off TV
3. Disconnect the main power from source outlet
4. Hold down the power button under the little red light ... wait 30 seconds
5. Plug the TV back in and power on using the button under the red light.
6. Connect my Bose Q45 headphones
If this weren't a waste of 1-2 hours of time it would be comical. I've had this problem 3 times since I bought the TV 2 months ago. I've gone thru 3 WebOS updates and each one seems to get worse and worse.
If the software engineers at LG don't know what they're doing, then please STOP. Just banging out garbage untested code so you get paid isn't good for LG. This Bluetooth problem is well documented across the internet and LG is just making the problem worse.
Connect then immediate Disconnect of a Bluetooth device sounds exactly like the code didn't capture the devices UUID. I don't know what approach the LG software engineers are using but if it's this method:
link hidden, please login to view or they might want to use Sweet Blue . Your software seems to be processing the same UUID twice (sounds like basic loop logic problem as you cycle found devices). Did any of the LG development team actually test multiple Bluetooth devices? Either way LG, hire some quality software engineers that know what they're doing or pay for a quality assurance group to unit test. And yes, I'm a software engineer with over 35 years of experience.
We ran an ARC sound bar with surround sound on a C9 OLED TV - this works fine . I would like to add a bluetooth headphone for my partner to use as her hearing is getting worse but key is to operate both the sound bar and the bluetooth headphones at same time - Has anyone done this . I can see away to do it with internal speaker option but quaility of speakers is not too good on the C9.
OK, so what does it take to have full Chromecast support in LG TVs (webOS)?
a. Either builtin support.
b. Via webOS app.
The goal / use is simple as any other Chromecast device / TV: be able to say to "hey Google, play this video/music from service-X to LG-TV".
Looking forward to good news and your thoughts.
