I just put an M4A file on my NAS and was really surprised that I couldnt play it using the LG TV's network explorer with error 'file type not supported'. Will this be added soon as it is a fairly standard file format that all websites I've read agree is better quality and better compression than mp3.

Yeah, LG TVs sadly do not support many of "used a lot" formats and i still don't know why. some of them or most of them are open source too. :/ , for me personally my whole library of show is encoded in x264 10bit. those also are not supported :( 

I hope LG would add support for this or at least give us a software option within the store to install additional Codecs if we need them. our TVs are fully capable of running those. come on LG you can do that!  don't make us thing those who bought the Andriod TV version made the right choice and we made the wrong one. more support for Codecs was never bad. never!.

    • Question: TLS fatal error

      I have an LG Infinia 55LW6500 smart TV (https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B004OVEVP6/ref=oh_aui_search_detailpage?ie=UTF8&psc=1) that I bought in 2011. Today is the first time I tried searching the internet using its built-in browser, and I can't make it work. The network connection is fine, and it's hard-wired in. I can use Google, and it will show me the results of the searches I've tried. But then when I click on a website URL (or type in the URL), I get the error "TLS fatal error". Does this have to do with the website security? Is there anything I can do to fix this short of buying a new TV (not going to happen)? I'd like to be able to watch my Amazon Prime shows directly on the TV without having to hook up my laptop to it. I was thinking of buying Hulu, but it seems I'll have the same problem with it.

    • Network connection issues. LG Content store doesn't connect.

      I did a refresh of my LG TV 3 days ago. Sold the old LG 47" 3D LED TV and bought new 55" LG Super UltraHD TV with WebOS. I believe, the biggest con of this new TV is WebOS. Its totally frustrating. Sorry for WebOS fans. It isn't that smart and functional they way it looks. The problem I having since 3 days and being a network engineer, I am unable to solve a network issue myself which is even more frustrating for me. Ok, let me explain the issue. The TV when installed was connected to LAN cable to my router which has direct internet connection. The TV works and none of the apps were working. Basically TV wasn't able to connect to internet via apps. If i open web browser, it was working fine with all webpages showing correctly. I'll skip the part of contacting LG support which was useless. All troubleshooting steps like resetting, formatting, changing time zone, location, region was done but no luck. Finally I connected the TV via mobile hotspot and it just worked which gave me the clue that some ports are being blocked by my ISP or router. My internet setup is this way. Internet cable from ISP -> ISP Modem (can do NAT and work as router) - WiFi Router (NAT, DHCP, etc) -> all LAN clients. I put my LG TV in DMZ, opened all ports, etc but no luck. Then I converted my ISP modem as router and connected the LG TV directly to it and it started working..!!! My WiFi Router is TP-Link Archer C7 and I was using stock firmware. Thought it was creating issues and I installed DD-WRT, Open-WRT but no luck at all. The apps which were installed in TV when TV was connected directly to modem are still working fine. Youtube, Plex, Netflix, etc all are working but when I open LG Content Store, it just refuses to load. I am not sure what wrong my TP-Link router is doing. There is something wrong with the LG TV content store. If it requires to open ports, then I would like to know which ones. Sorry for the long port, may be my frustration of 3 days with no luck.!!

    • Question: Pop up messages on TV:wired LAN disconnected, then Network connected

      For the past few months I am getting intermittent pop up messages on my TV. 1st one says Wired LAN disconnected, then another message pops up and says Network connected. I have been calling my cable carrier Spectrum and Techs have been here and can't find problem. Also I went to check my wifi on my TV and my user name and connections aren't showing up all of a sudden. This TV was just purchased May 2017. What is going on and how to resolve!!
