I have recently purchased a LG 55NANO86 TV. Great TV which I am still getting used to! I have a question about compatibility of the LG built in web browser functionality with the iFollow football streaming service, used in the UK (and elsewhere). This is a paid for service which allows streamling of live football games. I have tried several times unsucessfully to use the built in LG browser on the TV to access and watch a game. Whilst it successfully shows the iFollow website and allows purchase of the stream, unfortunately the link to the live stream which should pop up a window with the stream, fails to load properly and leaves either a blank screen or a screen with the stop icon displayed. Does anyone know if this is a known incompatibility issue or am I doing something wrong? I have used the same iFollow website to view historical match highlights and this works without problem.
[Fortunately I can stream the iFollow stream to my iPad and then use an AV adaptor to mirror it to the TV so I can still get the match to the TV, but I would prefer to do his without the hassle of connecting the iPad.]
Any suggestions/advice welcome.
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.

I have an LG - 43" Class LED HD Smart webOS TV (Model 43UM6910PUA).
I keep all my videos stored on an external hard drive. When I connect this drive, a SEAGATE Expansion Portable 2TB External Hard Drive HDD (Model STEA2000400), to the USB port (back, side) and go to thumbnail view all I see are generic folders with the titles I have given to them. I do not see any of the "folder.jpg" poster/cover art images which I have in included in every folder together with the video(s) themselves. Why are these folder.jpg images not showing up in thumbnail view? I have no problem on other (older) televisions I have (none of which are LG however). Am I doing something wrong? I have contacted LG support both via email and online chat but have unfortunately not been able to get an answer from them.
I have included an image of the what I mean by generic folders in thumbnail view (see below). Thank you!
