I have the following setup:
LG 55EF950V television which is running webOS 2.2.0-1317 (this should be the latest version of the OS).
I have a number of video files on my Synology DiskStation DS413 NAS which I connect to with the TV over DLNA (on the TV this is Smart Share -> Devices -> (NAS))
I can see all the video files and play them etc., however when viewing the list of files I dont see any thumb images even though I have a JPEG image for each file. For example: "My Video.mkv" has a thumb call "My Video.jpg". For collections I put a "cover.jpg" image in the directory (this doesnt work either on the LG TV).
Has anyone else out there managed to get a webOS 2 TV to show video thumb nail images for videos over DLNA?
BTW: this all works when I use a Samsung TV so I dont think it has anything to do with the way the Synology DiskStation DS413 NAS is setup.
Every morning I have to enter settings/connection/WiFi connection and see that there is no check mark next to my WiFi name. It will reconnect when I click on it, and every once in a while it won’t connect until I enter WiFi password. I’ve talked for hours with multiple LG ‘techs’ halfway around the world only to find they are clueless. All settings have been triple checked. In the year I’ve had this not-too-smart tv none of my devices like tablets, phones, printers, desktops, or even Amazon fire stick have disconnected from WiFi even once! LG IS CLUELESS! Any body experience the same issue?
Im quite perplexed. Im pretty well versed in IT and computers but can someone help me out here.
How the heck do I convert a recording from my LG Smart 4K TV into AVI or MP4 to play on my PC or in my car.
Its only video files at the end of the day.

The Amazon app freezes with white circle forever every once in while. Usually after long pause or switching to another episode within a series. It also has major playback issues with CBS ALL ACCESS.
Sound is surround sound without the front channels. Only hear music no dialogue.
Only fix for both is going into so many other apps LG finally closes Amazon app. Power cycle and simply switching to Netflix doesn't work.
I don't understand why the Netflix app is so awesome and all other apps have issues. The UI, playback etc suck on other apps. Small but meaningful is the ffw and rewind. In Netflix simply arrow left or right simple with nice preview. All other apps have a clunky stupid button you have to arrow to select then arrow back to play. Try to jump back 10sec or so in Hulu, Amazon, sling etc... It's a pain in the ass.
