Data Cap and Stream Quality

Question

Ive lived in a city my whole life, and just moved to a rural area that has 6x more expensive internet that is 4x slower and has low 50gb monthly data cap... thanks VIASAT AND HUGHES NET!

Anyway, I think i may get me a lg uk6200, mainly cause low input lag, and hopefully I THINK its the 6300 without the stupid slimAI, and bluetooth features... hopefully..

I ask, with the amazon, netflix, hulu app, and youtube app, Can i set the data rate to SD or lower. I simply cannot use 720 or 1080, or by god 4k or i will hit my cap limit in probably a few days. or hours lol.

 

I used to love my palm pixi and hopefully the webos evolved a bit to accomodate the world that has data caps. It would be nice to hear someone who knows the question... otherwise I will probably have to buy a roku for that functionality

Out of mentioned app I use only YouTube. I couldn't find an option to change the stream quality within the application. It automatically adapts to the available bandwidth. I may change the quality if I limit the TV's bandwidth within my router. I don't know whether your router has such a capability, but you may try something similar.

      I would like to be able to access my network drives without using DLNA.  It should look just like a USB drive.

      When I turn on a HDMI device and it wakes up my TV, the TV just… wakes up on the HDMI input used before it sleeps/turns off.
      I have then to manually change the input to the HDMI input/device I want to use - the one I used to wakes the TV up 😕  It's really annoying

      Hi,
      I recently bought an LG UK6500PLA TV (my first LG), but I have a difficult time streaming content (Wifi connected), e.g. Netflix series is streaming in low resolution.  The router is only 10 feet away from TV (but ethernet is not an option) and uses a 5GH frequency range.
      I have tried making a speed test at fast.com, for both the TV (through the Webbrowser) and for my laptop and iPhone. The speed test for TV showed 2.5 Mbps and my laptop and iPhone showed 110 Mbps. Can there really be such a big difference? I am starting to wonder if this might be a warranty issue?
      Do any of you guys have experience with bad Wifi reception on your LG TV or have any suggestions on how to fix it? 
       
      Br,

      I have  a UK6090PUA 55" SmartTV. All firmware and  WebOS software and is up to date.
      I have connected a Roku 2 and LG BP-M25 Bluray/DVD player to HDMI ports 1 and 2.
      I get an audio pop whenever content play starts on both the Roku and DVD player.
      If I use the WebOS apps there is no pop. First inkling is that the HDMI connection is the issue. 
      Has anyone experienced this and is there a fix?
      Honestly I like the Roku streaming apps better than the internal apps. Playback is smoother. While using the internal WebOS Hulu or Prime Video apps I catch an occasional stutter.
