LG webOS TV not loading Plex app (Network Error -337)

Question

When trying to load the Plex app on an LGWebOs smart TV, app says :-

CHECK NETWORK CONNECTION    Error CODE : -337

This may be a temporary issue. 
Please try again later. 

(RETRY)     (EXIT APP)

 

  • Firstly my network connection is fine. Netflix and YouTube loads and runs just seamlessly.
  • This has only been happening in the last few months
  • If I (RETRY) after a long wait sometimes it connects and loads correctly or I get the same error again.
  • I have tried other Plex clients on my home server and they work just fine. 

Specs:

  • LG OLED65C8PTA TV running Web OS 04.10.15.
  • LG Plex client app is version 2.1.6 from Sep 2016
  • Plex server is on my QNAP NAS and at version 1.13.5.291 from Sep 2018.

I guess my question is, if the LG Plex client app hasn't changed since 2016 and my Plex server is working for other clients, then what is going wrong?

Cheers
Noel

Not sure what your problem is but you can try xplay which is a plex client.  You can get it from the app store.  They keep it updated.  FYI:  my plex app works and I actually use both apps.  Sorry I can't be more helpful with your main issue.

      Hello,
      Is there any way of installing an usb gigabit network adapter on a webos smart TV?  The builtin wired adapter is only 100mbps (on a 2000$+ TV, shame  on you LG!!!)  while the wifi (N) is very poor, with the router at 1m from TV it only gets half the bandwidth of the wired network. Anyway the wired network  maxes out near 100mbps but I need more bandwidth as I have 4k video content with bitrates grater than 100mbps which I cannot stream without stuttering to TV through XPLAY/PLEX. 
      Kind regards,

      The sales person in showroom pushed for LG saying it has better sound and picture richness. But obviously didn't reveal big shortcomings of non-android smart TV in today's ecosystem. This is useless as you are not having freedom to install apps of your choice from playstore. I can't even get Sonyliv. Horrible OS. Now I am trapped for years after buying this TV. Don't buy LG or other non-android TV unless you can affford to throw it in weeks. When will LG grow up?

      Hi,
      When we try to play HLS stream in production app in LG tv (some models LG 49UH652V , LG UK6700PVD) it enters into infinite buffering state. In debug mode using webOSIDE could see `loadedmetadata` event is not getting triggered by video-player.
      It works randomly says 1 in 10 attempts able to play the content.
      I tried with youtube and other apps as well, looks like all the LIVE streams are entering into infinite buffering state.
      Can you please advice why live streams (HLS) are not playable in some LG TV's?  Is there any work around to resolve this issue? Please assist.
      Regards,
      Indrani

      If you are a big Plex user and use it to DVR OTA TV you may want to wait to purchase and LG WebOS TV. The current version of the Plex client will not stream 4801/p recorded tv from your server. LG can't do anything about this it is a PLEX issue.  Here is my post to the PLEX forum:
      ##################################################################
      Server Version#: 1.16.1.1291
      Player Version#: 3.108.1 (Chrome), 3.107.1 (LG TV)
      HDHomerun Connect Duo.
      All DVR recordings play well on my Chromebook and the client on the NVidia Shield. All recordings play well on the client for my LG TV EXCEPT anything recorded at 480i. These recordings skip. I connected a Roku to my LG TV and Plex recordings recorded at 480i do not skip using the Roku Plex app.
      PLEX Live TV at 480i on my LG TV also plays well without skipping. There appears to be a bug in the WebOS app playing recordings encoded at 480i (MPEG2VIDEO). Anything at 720i plays fine.
      I have looked through the forum for about 30 minutes and I haven’t found anything exactly like my problem. Can anyone help?

      This points to one issue about WebOS if you are comparing it to other smart TV's. Support of WebOS by third parties is shaky. For example when I first purchased my LG TV a few months ago Pandora was not an available app. Fortunately the Pandora app is now available. I'm hoping when PLEX issues an update to the WebOS version my issue will be corrected. If someone else has had this issue and found a fix let me know. My fix has been to pull out my old Roku and stream through it. Not ideal.

      Hi there,
      I've just bought an oled55c8pla and vocals instructions are not working. When I try to use them a message pops up saying temporary connection error with server. Retry later (6022).
      On web browser vocal dictation is working perfectly so magic remote is working as well.
      Any tips? Already checked for updates (latest is 04.10.30), reset done, all agreement on user allowed, but nothing is solving.
      A solution will be really appreciated.
      Thanks
