WebOS update and 49SM8600

Question

Hi All,

Has anyone had a recent update of the OS on their TV to 4.7.050204 (goldilocks2-gulaga) ?

The reason I ask is that the IPTV channels on my TV seem to have borked these channels as I now get "Invalid Service"
floating across the screen. I'm pretty sure these channels worked before the update.

I'm referring to channels such as Now 90's, Planect Knowledge, The Sports Channel Network etc. So these are NOT APPS but
TV Channels showing up on the guide and still show the programme details.
 

This TV is only a week old, and I think I'm going to be bounced between the retailer and LG as it seems to be a software issue.

Does anyone have similar experiences and have you resolved the issue ?

TIA

Hi yes i have the same issue and i am not happy. LG said it this the broadcaster who is at fault  which is ridiculous. I have reported this to BBC Watchdog I hope you do the same as there does not seam to be a solution

I have a similar problem but for the UK Freesat channels. BBC, C4, C5 etc load into the channel guide EPG but when I select any station it displays a blank screen with "Invalid Service" error.

Initially setup with region Ireland so thought that might be the issue, but I have just reset to factory settings and tried UK, with same result on selecting Satellite - Freesat.

I'm connected directly into the DVB-S2 tuner of the TV from an old Sky dish.

Considering purchasing a setup top box but really why should I have to spend more money on an additional device when the LG set should work as advertised?

      Is this model ever going to receive webOS TV updates? My TV is stuck with 4.1.4-5726 (goldilocks-glacier). I'm interested in LG Channels.

      With the current situation of shelter in place, many churches are streaming from their websites. My LG tv gives a message saying the file is too big.  There is no app I can do this from.  This should be allowed, please advise!

      After purchase my LG smart tv was able to pick up DTT (digital Terrestial Transmitters in the local area. These channels failed to work after some time and it was assumed that they were switched off due to the never ending wait for South Africa to migrate fully to digital.
      However tuning my sons Hi Sense tv the said channels were found and indeed are operational as  digital HD channels
      Returning to my LG tv i changed the location to digital , retuned and lo and behold the digital channels appeared on a multiplex on uhf  channel 49 (8mhz) however within a few minutes they disappeared never to be seen again isn spite of much time and many alternative settings.
      I have tried changing location, adding  channel 49 UHF manually which shows full signal strength and quality, but gives no digital programmes found.
      I have had to revert to the 4 terrestial channels to get any tv operation at all.
      I believe that my set has been crippled by LG. I am highly upset considering the cost of a uhd TV thats not capable of performing ito its original specification or  at its best.
      Any advice on how to obtain a working system ( frimware has been updated ) or the legal route to go to resolve this issue would be welcome.
      NB as a retired broadcast technologist i do have some knowledge of the industry so would welcome any technical perspectives if i have missed something
      thanks Mikei
