Slow Programme Guide


Question

LG50UK6950. The programme guide is slow to load, and has to re-load for each page. My previous LG tv (a 49UK.....) was the same.

Samsung, Panasonic, Toshiba and Sony are almost instantaneous.

Is this a hardware problem, eg lack of memory, or software - in which case is it ever going to be fixed?

I have the UK6400plf and it's the same as yours. Freeview play uses the internet connection but mine is 56mbs so can't understand why it's so slow too! As you say, reloading with each page....what a drag!

I have a 350Mbps internet connection and suffer the same issue with my new 55UM7660PLA .  I never had an issue with lag with my old Samsung smarttv.   The lag is unbearable  so I will send back - shame as I love the TV but having such a slow TV program interface is a deal breaker.

Just bought an LG 55SM9010PLA as I was told by various people it was a great TV. The picture may be good but I find the programme guide absolutely useless taking a couple of seconds to load and when using page down or up I get a blank page for a couple of seconds. My old Samsung was instant so what's with this awful lag. It's nothing to do with the internet connection as it's just the same if I disconnect the internet, They've put plenty of useless things in like the annoying red pointer on the magic remote but can't get the basic stuff right - it's like going back in time, even before my ancient Samsung. Unfortunately I also bought a 24 inch for the bedroom at the same time and this is just as bad. I always said in the past I would stick with Samsung and I really wish I had.

I doubt it is ever going to be fixed. I asked a techie this and he reckons they are using JAVA as a programming language.  They'd have to re-code the entire thing to make it work properly.

With every system update (got one today) I am thinking "I hope this fixes the 'loading' message ".   Nope!

Even Kodi has a much better guide - it is very fluid and you can scroll 12 days in advance or back with NO LAG or loading.

Has anyone from LG actually bothered to get back to this issue? 

Just a response along the lines of "We are aware it is an issue but because of the way it is coded, we cannot change it" OR " We are aware of the issue and are working on a fix to be deployed xxx date".

It's the lack of response that is the worst of all.

I have complained to Which magazine, the consumer guardians, so that they factor this poor customer experience in when they review LG TV's in future.

I'd have thought recoding the programme guide would not be a major job for the world's largest TV manufacturer.

Anyway I got rid of my LG and bought a set from it's biggest competitor.  Instantaneous programme guide.

To be fair to LG it has a far better signal diagnostic. The competitor only shows "signal quality" whereas the LG diagnostic shows signal strength as well. It also shows a list of the TV channels on each Mux . Good signal diagnostics are essential for pointing your aerial, especially in weak signal locations.

I also complained to Which, who consistently rates this TV as a best-buy. It has actually mentioned the slow programme guide for some sets, but it doesn't reduce the number of 'stars'. They said they would pass my complaint on to the reviewing team, but no change in recent ratings.

      Hi I'm trying to find out if a problem I have is a problem of my LG 49U67V TV or my modem's problem.
      Some times ( irregular pattern)  when I try to connect to some kind of web service (browser,  YouTube, Netflix),  I can't connect or the speed is too slow. My TV is connected via Wi-Fi.
      When check the Wi-Fi and internet connection trough the settings Evey thing looks OK. At the same time my Android phones connect superbly and if I measure my internet speed via fast.com from phone or PC everything is OK.  I found 2 solution for  this
      A.   either restarting the modem and then everything is OK the connection superb etc.
      B. Going to settings, disconnect from my router and reconnect (you know adding again the router password). Then everything is back to normal. 
      The TV does not seem to have any other issue.  
      I've tried to go back to factory settings. I've noticed the problem again. In irregular pattern it appears no standard time or pattern of appearance.
      Could it be that my modem router is the problem?  I have this modem for over 3 years. 
      I will try another to be sure. LG here said "we can check your TV but if we don't find anything you (me that is)  will have to pay for pick up and delivery expenses. 
      clarification 
      The TV seems to be connected during this problem. Just it does not stream data from the internet or it does in low speeds. Netflix speed test shows it at really low speeds or disconnected while in settings it seems connected. Strength of Wi-Fi signal,  superb

      Hi,
       
      I update MY TV WebOS last night  (Version 05.30.10)), then I cannot stream from my Android phone anymore! It worked perfectly with the pervious version.
      Do you know if LG fix it or I should downgrade to the previous version? 
      How can I downgrade it?

      Just a quick one really.
       
      according to the LG software update form website, my LG tv 65uk6300plb has a software update available. I have rewired my homes Ethernet and wifi, as well as connecting my tv to Ethernet over wifi. Only now I can’t seem to either connect to the software update section on LG or I am but it’s not available in my area.
       
      any ideas how to test this... normally it says it may take a few minutes... now it says no updates straight away.

      The guide is slow to load. This is not the case with other TVs like Panasonic and Samsung, where the guide comes up instantly.

      Hi,

      I purchased a new 43" LG 4K TV in India couple of months ago. Model Number is 43UJ652t. I use Dish TV DTH service for watching TV. I connected my Dish TV HD Set Top Box  to the TV through HDMI port (HDMI 1)

      I have couple of questions - 
       
      When I select the HDMI input to watch TV, the following information is displayed on the top-left corner of the TV (See pic 1 below). It says 720p there. What does it mean? I have  HD set top box with HD Channel subscription. Why is it saying 720p there even when I am watching HD channels? There is an Icon in the Web OS launcher called Live TV (see  pic 2 below). It doesn't work with DTH set-top boxes? Does it only work with Antenna and Free to Air channels? The TV guide icon (see pic 3) in the Web OS launcher doesn't doesn't play the TV Guide for my Set-Top Box. It asks me to fine tune the programming first  but Auto-tuning doesn't find any channels? Is the TV Guide functionality available only for the Antenna and  FTA channels? Can I add channels from my set-top box to the My Channels menu (see pic 4)? How do I add shows from Amazon Prime to the "My Content" menu for easy access. Currently, it only allows me to add YouTube content Can I add a specific channel from my Dish TV set top box as a long press shortcut in my LG Magic Remote? In the below LG videos, when the presenter selected  the STB while setting up Live TV, the TV automatically searches for the channels and populates the TV Guide? Is it not possible to do it for Indian DTH set top boxes?
         



      These questions are driving me mad. Please help me in understanding the LG Web OS System better
