Urgent BUG on OLED48A1PTA: Please add an option in "media player" (for NAS shared media) to avoid generating previews which takes foreverBy Xuancong Wang
I have two LG TVs, 65SM8600PTA and OLED48A1PTA respectively. Both are connected to the same NAS router via LAN cable. Both can enter the NAS folder containing my Chinese drama series collection.
65SM8600PTA can play everything smoothly. OLED48A1PTA always stucks at loading the drama series folder (which contains ~60 video files, each video is in the size range 400MB-2GB) for very long time, >3 minutes. Upon clicking into the last layer folder, the spinner spins for very long time while attempting to regenerate previews for this and parent folders. So if there is an option to skip generating video/image previews, then listing folder content can complete much faster, and then that will solve the problem.
I would like request this additional option for OLED48A1PTA to skip generating preview so that NAS video list can show up quickly.
OLED48A1PTA is bought from Shopee recently under 15-day-free-return policy, if you can push an update before 2022-02-10 that solves this problem, I will accept the product. Otherwise I will raise a return-and-refund request because the OLED screen also has vertical strip issue when displaying grey background.
Thanks for your notification!

I bought a new 77 inch OLED tv a year ago. Ever since then it has randomly reset itself when using apps, (Youtube, Sirius, Netflix, doesn't matter). Basically the tv freezes, closes out the app and goes black as if the power has been cut, and then restarts to HDMI 1 just as it does whenever the TV is first turned on. I have had a technician visit 4 times already and he's replaced the main board, the wifi board, the remote control and the remote sensor. Basically he's replaced everything except the display and the power cord. Of course we've made sure the firmware is up to date and done many hard resets and nothing works. I'll add one more thing that happened last week for the first time, but it happened twice so it is definitely not a coincidence. I was watching a movie on Disney Plus and a half second before my phone rang, the movie stopped like before, but this time the app restarted in stead of the entire tv restarting. This exact same thing happened 15 minutes later, a half second before another call came in so it was not a coincidence. My phone is android with Verizon fwiw, but of course I get calls all of the time and this only happened this one day. Since almost everything has been replaced I had already been thinking that some kind of electromagnetic interference may be at issue, but this is not my specialty. Has anyone else experienced this?

With online video content increasingly becoming more integrated into our daily lives, consumers are becoming even more reliant on this form of media for entertainment, information and social interaction. LG’s response to this trend is LG StanbyME, a 27-inch wireless screen with a built-in battery attached to movable stand, offering unrivalled convenience and viewing comfort to make it the ideal companion for today’s viewing habits.
Unlike a PC, LG StanbyME is mobile, with its own battery for three hours of viewing between charges. Unlike a laptop, LG StanbyME offers a touchscreen and doesn’t require a desk or a lap. Unlike a tablet, LG StanbyME delivers content on a spacious 27-inch display.
To celebrate the first launch of this category-busting home entertainment product outside of South Korea, the Hong Kong team at LG Electronics designed a pop-up event in Central Market last week. Redesigned in 2021 as a Playground for All, Central Market is a local landmark of culture and heritage and the ideal location for LG to introduce the product’s revolutionary design and easy-to-use features.
The event stage was divided into four major zones – Kitchen, Living Room, Study Room and Product Island – to demonstrate how the product perfectly fits into diverse, modern lifestyle settings.
In the Living Room zone, LG StanbyME was accompanied by LG appliances including LG CordZero A9 Kompressor vacuum cleaner and LG PuriCare Air Purifier to illustrate how its clean, sleek design easily blends into a typical living space. The screen demonstrated its ability to support a diverse selection of content via pre-installed apps from top content providers including Netflix, Disney+ and popular local content from ViuTV.
A special live streaming section in the Study Room zone highlighted the versatility of the device’s Mobile Screen Mirroring feature using NFC. By connecting their smartphones to LG StanbyME, users can comfortably view everything on their phones on the larger display. LG StanbyME also connects to the LG ThinQ app, LG’s proprietary AI platform, to control specific functions on the display.
With its built-in rollers and the rotatable screen that can be displayed both in vertical and horizontal orientations, LG StanbyME’s strengths in mobility and flexibility were on full display at the launch event, attracting modern cosmopolitans who are always on the lookout for uplifting personal lifestyle products that offer unique customer values and support home-centric lifestyles.
What the guests immediately appreciated about LG StanbyME was the fact that this was a product that was designed for and during a time when consumers are reevaluating their habits when it comes to entertainment. As the world – including Hong Kong – enters the third year of a global pandemic, consumers have gotten used to the idea of entertaining themselves at home rather than frequenting cinemas and theaters.
For these consumers, LG StanbyME couldn’t have come at a better time.
