I have a 55UH6150 LG Smart TV and was wonder if it was possible to update it to version WebOS 6. I have some apps I would like to install but sadly they are only avaible on the content store from WebOS 6+. Is it in anyway possible to update the SW for it?
I know the page doesn't show WebOS 6 listed for it, but am curious if there is a way I can do it anyways
Any information would be much appreciated

After update of LG WebOS to 04.40.70, Amazon Prime Video app on my LG Smart TV stopped working. It started giving error :
Internet Connectivity Problem
There is an internet connection problem. Check the device's internet settings, data cables, or try to resetting your router. Also, turning your device off, and then back on might fix the problem. For further assistance, please contact Amazon customer service at www.amazon.com/videohelp
The internet/wifi connection is fine and all the other apps are working without any issue on the LG smart TV.
I have even tried uninstalling and reinstalling the Prime video app, but that didn't help.
Has anyone faced this issue ? Is there a solution available for this issue.
Thanks & Regards,

As stated in the title.
I can't connect my controller to the tv, however it says there may be some incompatibility issues. Which is interesting because it's listed in the compatible products on LG's webpage.
When I open the web browser and go to the Xbox xcloud site to play games. I hit 'ready to play' and it says that it can't detect the controller even though its connected to my TV.
Things I've tried:
- Unplugging my TV from the wall for 5 minutes or so.
- Updating the TV to the latest software.
- Updating the controller to the latest software.
- Putting the controller USB stick into the TV and connecting it to the TV that way.
- Removing all wireless transmission devices away from the TV (except my Orbi or Wireless router, roughly 5 meters away from the TV)
I've seen a Youtube video of someone successfully connecting their controller and play xcloud on the web browser but i haven't had the same success.
Any ideas or solutions would be much appreciated.
