I recently updated the firmware on my LG43UH610V. Now I constantly get "Wired Lan cable disconnected" / "Wired network is connected" messages even while watching a video file from my NAS. The TV is connected and using the network while getting these messages. It has always been on a fixed IP address on the LAN.
So for everyone that has a smart TV, do you still have cable service with a cable box? I'm in the US, so mostly interested to see if people are migrating away from Comcast, Verizon Fios, and services like that with a cable box to streaming services like Direct TV Now, Hulu, Youtube TV, Sling, etc.
I have Verizon Fios currently and need to use their equipment. I'm noticing more and more that we aren't watching scheduled tv anymore and just "whenever" watching. My two young children mostly watch youtube these days. So I'm thinking of youtube TV maybe? Not sure.

Designed for Diverse Environments, New LG ProBeam Can Produce Massive
300-Inch Images Boasting 4K Resolution and a Peak Brightness of 7,000 ANSI Lumens
SEOUL, March 29, 2023 — LG Electronics (LG) announces the launch of its first digital signage projector, the LG ProBeam 4K UHD (model BU70QGA). Suitable for various environments, including art galleries, exhibition spaces, corporate lobbies, retail stores, showrooms, conference halls and auditoriums, the new 4K digital signage projector provides sharp, impressively large images and has a peak brightness of 7,000 ANSI lumens – the highest of any LG projector to date.
LG ProBeam produces 4K UHD (3,840 x 2,160) resolution pictures with a 3,000,000:1 contrast ratio at sizes ranging from 40 inches all the way up to 300 inches. Its 7,000 ANSI lumens peak brightness enables the BU70QGA to deliver clear images, even in bright daylight. Additionally, the projector features a reliable laser light source, lens shift, 1.6x optical zoom, built-in wireless connectivity and an integrated camera that aids in setup and positioning.
Edge blending technology enables the seamless connection of overlapping light from two or more projectors through luminance adjustment and color correction. Thanks to this advanced tech, up to nine BU70QGA can be used together to create truly panoramic images and an immersive viewing experience. Museums and art galleries, in particular, will find value in the projectors’ ability to provide large, eye-catching images.
Convenient and versatile, the LG ProBeam is a professional-quality video system suitable for various business environments. Using the BU70QGA’s Auto Screen Adjustment1 feature, users can quickly calibrate the image to the projection screen and correct image distortion with just one click of a button on the included remote controller. When the projection angle does not align with the screen, LG’s AI sensing technology evaluates lens shift, zoom, focus as well as warp distortion and automatically adjusts the projected image for an optimized viewing experience.
Leveraging a high performance SoC (System-on-Chip), the projector can execute several tasks at once, provide smooth content playback and optimize user convenience with an intuitive UI and simple app development tools. The BU70QGA can also connect with LG ConnectedCare; LG’s cloud-based device management solution for LG digital signage and display devices.2 Equipped with webOS 6.0, the new ProBeam allows third-party providers to add projection capabilities to their offering, expanding the diversity and value of LG’s extensive signage ecosystem.
“Our first 4K digital signage projector to feature the LG webOS 6.0 platform, the new LG ProBeam is a powerful and flexible display solution,” said Seo Young-jae, senior vice president and head of the IT business unit of LG Electronics Business Solutions Company. “Designed for the commercial sector, LG’s ProBeam projector lineups offer diverse, customized options that can help customers create professional-grade AV systems tailored to their specific needs.”
LG ProBeam model BU70QGA will launch globally this month, starting in the U.S. For more information, visit

I am trying to setup my new Phonak my hearing aids TV Connector with my new LG GP2 TV and Sonos Arc sound bar, connected by via the HDMI eArc port. The TV automatically uses the the HDMI eArc port, and that port only. As a result no signal goes through the optical out port of the LG TV.
Is there a way to make the LG TV sound signal simultaneously go out to both the sonud bar via eArc port and to the Phak TV Connector via the optical out port so that I can connect hearing aids to the Phonak TV connector and also use the Sonos Arc soundbar at the same time?
Appreciate any guidance.
Samsung, Sony, Apple TV, and many other competitors have the Steam Link app. It was available for Android TVs that had access to the Play Store.
When I set up my new LG OLED TV and realized WebOS doesn’t have access to Steam Link, Moonlight, or another comparable app, all I could think was “I wish I stuck with Samsung when upgrading to OLED.”
I have a 55" WebOS2 tv. Connections allow you to link to a Bluetooth sound bar. I have bought 2 LG sound bars the first ended up with the connectivity optical cable connections in both the tv and sound bar breaking. The second using LG Sound Sync keeps dropping out whenever I receive a WhatsApp message on my LG G6 mobile.
So I have bought a BOSE SoundLink Revolve Bluetooth device so I can get good sound without interruptions. I set up the TV to use Bluetooth, on the mobile I downloaded the Android app for Bose to connect and the unit works fine with the mobile. Try using it with the TV and it does not work. There is a Bluetooth output for sound bars on the connectivity page but this has no effect.
I even tried using the wired option from the USB to the Bose Soundlink Revolve. No good. Any suggestions.
My TV is the UG87OV
Software Version 04.05.70
Running Web OS2
