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


Noel Walker

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

Since I originally posted this question, several things have happened. I have had several different versions of the Plex Server App on my QNAP NAS, and also there has been an update to the Plex Client App on the LG TV. Anyhow the upshot of all this is that my Plex on LG has been working well for about 6 month or so now, and to be quite honest, I'm not sure what has resolved the issue. I did not try your method, only because my thought was if it is working now then don't change anything... ;-)

What you said in your YT video made sense though.

      I used 6000 hours. All four corners start to have struck pixels, this is very disappointing us after spending INR 1,00,000. I am sure this should have been tested products for such high value. How would I customer will recommend LG Smart TV for family and friends if the product manufacturing is not worth the money spent on?

      Seeing this error when accessing the content store.
      Long story short, I'm able to watch netflix and various other streaming services but Disney+ went "weird" recently and would allow me to navigate to various shows but then always encounters a "problem".  I noticed Disney+ has a new app update on various Android devices I own so I figured it might need an update on my LG OLED 55E6V  too.  But the content store has been temporarily unavailable for 24 hours now.
      It's the first time I'm seeing this - anyone else? 
      I updated my email-based LG account and consented to some new terms and conditions in the hope it would make a difference but now I feel like I was mugged into that, all for nothing.  Meantime... no Disney+ and no way to check my LG WebOS apps are up to date (strongly suspect there might be a new Disney+ app).  The "Account Management" option on my TV results in a black screen and this just feels like things are unravelling.
      I have firmware 05.60.15 and no updates are available.

      Can someone inform me as to when (what generation) they removed the smart zoom feature from their TV's? I want to purchase a new OLED TV but I noticed their smart zoom feature was missing from their remote control. I have a 2016 LG TV that still has it and I use it all the time.

      I have LG TV UF6800. TV is working well. The youtube app had worked well until a couple month ago. The yoyube hangs very often after playing advertisement. It also hangs after playing a long video (around 30 min). By "hangs" I mean it is still there, showing the youtube UI, but we cannot play any video. Just black, staying there forever.
      I am using wired network on the TV. 
      I tried updating app, nothing. I googled and tried unpluging power while watching...., no help. BTW the youtube (with the same user) works well on PC and iPad.
      If you think this is not LG's problem, please advise to whom I should contact.

      Below are the details of my model and OS information.  With this version, there is no support for Sony LIV and voot app. It will be beneficial if such apps are also provided.
