SBS Ondemand and ABC iView breakup since last upgrade

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!

Yes, mine fixed itself up after a few days.  Of course, that was 5 months ago.

Hope yours fix itself as well. Make sure that any updates have been applied.

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.

      We recently got a new LG 43" TV for our bedroom (43UN7300AUD). There are no inputs for this TV as we only want to use it for streaming services (Netflix and Amazon). There is no Antenna hooked up to the TV either since we don't want to watch LiveTV on it (the only Antenna we have is hooked up in our family room to a FireTV Recast, not to a smartTV). 
      When we turn on the TV it auto-tunes to channel 2-0. Since there is no antenna, this is just loud snow. Even when we go to the dashboard, it defaults to showing liveTV and hence more snow & noise. Even though the LG TV stations are enabled and working it will always tune to 2-0 when I turn the TV on. I've tried going through the menu and cannot find any setting to change this. I'd be happy removing or disabling "LiveTV" as an option and would love it to start with the dashboard with LiveTV not expanded/active. Even clicking on the amazon prime button takes time and we get several seconds of the snow before the smart features startup.
      With more and more people only using streaming services, I have to believe the TV supports our use case and should not try to ever use liveTV. 
      Is there a setting I missed in the menu to stop it from always trying to go to liveTV when I turn the TV on? Or at the very least make it tune to an LG channel on start to avoid the snow?
      Update: of course, right after posting thisI did find that you can use the amazon prime button on the remote to turn the TV on. I still would like to fix the dashboard playing snow and would prefer to have the TV not try to use liveTV if I use the power button to turn the TV on.
      Thank you

      In the last few days my LG TV OLED65B8PTA suddenly drops the volume significantly fleetingly every few minutes. 
       
      Am also hoping this isn't the start of the end of this massive investment I made a couple of years ago !!!

      I have lg tv model 49UJ6525, last weekend the tv updated to version 05.80.35, but now I realized that I can no longer use the 5 GHz WIFI network, the network is disconnecting and connecting all the time. I did a test with the 2.4 Ghz network and it works normal, but I would like to use the 5GHz network.
      Is it possible to solve this problem?
