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.

      Need some help with my 55B6.....can't get the firmware to update......I have 3 spinning dots!!

      Here is what has happened.....
      - When watching I was getting the screensaver fireworks for no reason
      - As done in previous situations, I triggered "reset to initial settings".
      - the 3 colored spinning dots were triggered as if the reset had started, but no reset occurred.
      - the 3 colored spinning dots would not go away.
      - I downloaded the firmware to USB and tried to update using the manual USB update process per LG's online instructions.
      - When I turn on the TV, with USB inserted, I still get the 3 colored spinning dots -- NOTHING HAPPENS!
      I have tried 2 different USB drives and formatted both to FAT32, no success.  Can't get past the 3 spinning dots!

      Don't know where to go with next step!!

      Thanks for any help you can provide!

      When Sony Liv will be available on LG WebOS? From long time I am seeing that app is under development. Does it take so long? Please confirm date when it will be available.

      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
