SBS Ondemand and ABC iView breakup since last upgrade


MidGe

Question

Since the last upgrade, if not before, my LG smartTV [OLED55B8]  does not play SBS Ondemand or ABC Iview correctly. The streaming hangs a minute or so after the start and keeps on breaking up every two minutes or so making it unwatchable.

I know the problem is with the TV, as a set-top box on the same network does not show the problem at all. My connection never goes below 90Mbs, not even during peak time and a ping of 3ms. I have reset the TV but that has not rectified the problem.

What gives?

 

I am adding this as I just noticed that I have these breakups on youtube as well.  :( And again, no issues with the set stop box.

I answered earlier today but being new to the forum, I probably didn't do it correctly but am now properly joined, so here's hoping this gets to you. Did you get any resolution to the problem with your LG Tv.?

My 55 inch Lg smart Tv, bought in September 2018,  is doing exactly what you describe. Both ABC and SBS stop repeatedly. Other things such as YouTube, Netflix etc are  ok.   It is clearly a TV issue as desktop computer ( ethernet) and ipad and phone (wifi) work fine on both of those sites.  I asked our local Facebook community site and someone said they had the same problem. Sounds like they didn't resolve it. 

I don't think I have any chance with LG as it is out of warranty. The screen was recently replaced under a 'good will' extension of my warranty and the problem has worsened since that repair.  I will call the repairer and see what they have to say, but am not hopeful. Looks like I got a lemon!

Interesting. Last night at about11pm, after a lot of researching, I unplugged my wireless headphones. I had been reading about things that could interfere with wifi. Both ABC and SBS worked fine! I then plugged the headphones back in and it stayed working ok. This morning with headphones still plugged in they are both still working ok. Unplugging the headphones maybe gave the two systems a chance to find their own way on the same frequency ( both 2.5ghz).  I did read something about how they are on the same frequency and yet can operate, somehow, at the same time.  Thinking about it, these troubles started not long after  I bought the headphones.  Here's hoping. Thanks for your time.

      Hi,
      Ongoing problem!!
      About a month ago I switched from BT to Vodafone FTTP (Fibre) broadband (100Mbps)
      Since then I've had buffering on my LG TV (55UM7610PLB). This is connected to the router by ethernet cable.
      My first thoughts were to do with the internet connection, I checked and tested everything. Vodafone have also checked everything and Openreach have replaced the ONT. Still got the problem though.
      So, I've turned to the TV. The LG chat and phone help were pretty low level and not at all helpful.
      Google turned up a possible solution which involved resetting the location services and removing it's automatic status. This sort of worked. Watching UHD Frozen Planet 2 was bufferless. But the next day, watching ITV hub was worse than ever.
      You would have thought with an 100Mbps connection it would all work so well....but it doesn't.
      Is it the TV? 
      Is there a fix? 
      Any ideas much appreciated.
      Thanks

      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.

      When I log in via the tv to iview the picture stays black even though sound is working correctly

      Hi all. After nearly 5 years of loyal service, I was surprised tonight when I turned on my Bedroom TV.  And nothing happened. Oh, the red light comes on, flashes 3 times and goes out, but the screen remains black.  So I go online and search. Find a few Youtube videos of people with the same issues, but none of their "power cycling" trick worked.  Well, one exception, when I unplug the TV for 30 seconds, then press and hold the manual power button (On the TV not the remote.) for 30 seconds, then plug the TV back into a different socket, the screen flashes on briefly, mostly just a white screen, but my wife thinks she saw some text very briefly. (Split Second) I was on a 6-foot ladder and didn't see it. Just the white flash. As if it was "trying" to start up" but something was preventing it. A burnt, doohickey or thingamajigger. Something like that.
      I also pulled the batteries from the remote and held that power button for 30 seconds, and then put the batteries back in and pressed ON, same result.  I think this tells me it's not the screen.  Can anyone share any fixes or knowledge about what I might be up against?  Is the TV Done after only 5 years? Is it a common issue that can be self-fixed, or will I need an expensive service call?  Any guidance I can get will be appreciated. Thanks
