Hi everyone, I'm Chloe and I just signed up. I'll cut straight to the chase. I'm currently using the LG TV (webos 3.0) of a friend while she's away for a few months and I constantly get prompted to update the firmware. She says she's never updated it as she doesn't care and everything was working fine anyway, and told me to just disregard it. So, I'm not gonna do it, but that reminder is doing my head in as it pops up every time I turn the TV back on.
Since I couldn't find anything in settings to turn it off, last month I blocked a bunch of addresses at router level and it did work for several weeks, as I wouldn't get the reminder any longer.
Here's what I blocked after sniffing out addresses that the TV checked out right before the reminder appeared:

Do you have any suggestions about how to definitely kill that reminder once and for all? Thanks in advance.
After updating my LG 60SJ850V to version 06.00.25 software everything went wrong...
Connected via ethernet cable and youtube has buffering issues. Get stuck for few seconds and then sped thtough for few. Has good fibre connection and never had this issue.
Also when watching from external hard drive, the video's get stuck and giving issues where there never were any problems.
Can't connect TV to wifi anymore.
Message toggles between LAN cable disconnected followed by LAN ethernet connected the whole time.
Smart remote has connection issues.
This is extremely annoying. How can I get these issues fixed? Tried all the fixes that I could find for previous software update problems, but nothing works.
I have an LG OLED55B7A that has been rebooting randomly ever since I updated it to webOS 6.00.05 about 6 months ago. I have noted there is a new webOS version 6.00.20 available. Has anyone here had the same rebooting problem, and if so, did the latest webOS correct the issue?
In general, my setup has the LG tv doing as little as possible - it is simply a display for my Roku box via my AVR, as the TV's interface and apps slowly became completely unusable about a year after purchase. So, no ethernet, no WiFi, all services turned off, etc., and this helped with all of the performance issues, except the rebooting.
@LG tv if you ever read this - you have done a TERRIBLE job of managing the software on these TVs. webOS started off as a real alternative to all of the external set top boxes, but now, I will *never* *ever* buy another LG TV again, and I tell everyone I know to avoid them. Worst product management in the consumer electronics industry in the past 10 years.
Thanks fellow sufferers for any tips.

OLED65E7P bought in USA but later converted to India region by following the below link
link hidden, please login to view Current software version is 05.80.15
It won't find any new updates while checking from TV menu.
Should I upgrade it to 05.80.55 by downloading from LG India website?
Reason for asking is sometimes the apps act funny, especially Hotstar app seems buggy or not quick to respond. Does work ok most of the time.
Thanks for any helpful advice.
I am using LG 43UH650T and the same is updated to latest firmware 5.50.80 yet it is not showing latest apps available on latest lg tv app store.
Just wanted to know the availability of latest firmware for my tv that will support latest apps like Hotstar.
Is there a way to reflash the firmware? Or any ideas to fix this? I'm out of warranty so I hope I can fix this with a service remote.
I suspect when my TV autoupdated to 5.10.45 last week, it corrupted the firmware. It now takes 2 minutes to turn on the TV. It shows the WebOS loading screen against a black background but then after it loads up, I get a blue tint on the screen. I cannot get rid of this blue tint even messing with picture settings.
When I performed a reset to factory settings, it reverted to an unknown language which is very odd since I am located in the US. I can't even get it to select English - United states.
This is what a youtube video looks like that's supposed to show the color red.
