this app will now restart to free up more memory

Question

I have been using the LG 43" UHD Smart TV with WebOS now for about a year.  At first it seemed to run fine and continuously while watching all manner of material.  Recently I added a Synology NAS Server to my network, and I've noticed interruptions regarding the "must restart the app to free more memory" while running the Plex app.

I have tried various things to resolve the problem but the only thing I have found useful is to cut the power "just to the TV".   I have my cables tied neatly together with ties, and as I'm not sure which is for the TV at my power strip, I find it easiest just to pull the plug on back of the TV.   This should theoretically free up the memory just on the TV's internal memory.  After trying this I have been able to watch any content which was previously stopping to free memory, without any problems for a least a couple of days now.  

If it happens again, the first thing I will try is unplugging the TV for several seconds and try again.

Thanks for the advise, it seems to have worked for now so thank you.

I'm glad this has been a helpful tip.  I have a fairly vast library of movies, many in h.265 (HEVC) which began to fail in Plex.  At first I thought it was my server, but I looked up the specs for the TV, and the memory seems perilously low for an advanced Smart UHD TV.  I reasoned that it was just the TV memory failing, and one way to be sure is to cut the power completely for a few seconds.  I went back and watched several films without fail.

I should warn you though, that I have had a repeat of the problem a couple of times, but it only takes a few seconds to correct.  

 

Regards,

      Hi everyone so I searched high and low for a solution to my issue with Windows 10 and Screen Cast on my LG UK6300PUE not working and finally found a solution.
      For me, it had to do with my PC and TV connections. I like to hard wire everything and with both my PC and TV, they default to the more reliable, wired connection and disconnect the WiFi.
      Well from what I understand, Screen Cast is based off of Intel's WiDi technology, WHICH REQUIRES WIFI CONNECTIONS TO WORK!
      I did go through all the other suggestions, checking share settings in Windows and Media Player, resetting this and that. I'm not sure if I had to do any of that for Screen Cast to work but I did try all those common suggestion initially. So if Screen Cast is  still not working for you, try those other suggestions posted in numerous places here and other forums.
      I'm really surprised on all the forums I visited, this wasn't pointed out anywhere! I hope this helps those having issues with Screen Cast!
       
      TL; DR: So basically on a WIRED connection, I could see my TV on my Windows 10 PC, but it would not connect. As soon as I connected BOTH my PC AND TV to WiFi, Screen Cast began to work.
       
      My current LG UK6300PUE Software Version: 04.10.04
      Windows 10 64-bit Build: Version 1803, OS Build 17134.34

      Short answer: Something on my network is causing the crashes.
      I had an extra router, so I put it between my network and the TV.  
      Netflix no longer crashes, and other apps no longer give me the dreaded, "This app will now restart to free up more memory" error.
       
      Longer answer: Netflix would regularly crash out to Live TV after 20-40 minutes of play. I've been on LG support with this for months. They've replaced the main board twice, and took it off-site where the problem could not be replicated.
      I reset the TV and connected it to my smart phone data plan (luckily just upgraded to 10 GB). No crashes. Put the TV back on my network, crashed after half an hour.
      I took the network cable out of the TV and plugged it into a spare WiFi router. This creates a small network of only one device (the TV). I no longer get crashes. 
      Unfortunately, this kills local network features like DLNA/Plex streaming and wireless display mirroring, but all Internet apps like Netflix and YouTube work flawlessly.
      I plan to narrow down which device(s) on my network is the cause of the crashes, but after 10 months of fighting this I'm just going to enjoy some 4K streaming for a while. If I learn anything new, I'll post it here.
