Hello, it has been noticed that for the new 2020 models there is some discrepancy about the recording functions as PVR, timeshift. If we compare all new models apparently the function is disabled in Italy or Austria and other countries, even on expensive models. The same model apparently has the recording function if you buy in UK and few other countries. For instance comparing model OLED55CX6LA
To be honest I don't understand the reason to remove a basic function like this on the new models, especially I see less important that any voice control function.
I can image some royalties might be the reason for this decision, but I cannot understand even on high end models.
And what about if we buy it on another country? Can we enable or disable it?
The presence or absence of this options can be a decision factor for LG or other brands. Thanks for the clarification
PS: I own already 49UK6400 model and I'm quite satisfied, so I was considering for next tv.
So LG has put webOS on TVs, projectors, and now cars with webos auto. Does anyone thing LG will ever produce a webos powered smartphone or tablet? I know samsung has tried with tizen and it was only with the palm pre 2 and touchpad from HP that we saw webos on these types of devices. Just curious on what everyone thingks. Here's what webos used to look like..

I use Plex Media Server to stream content around the house. I have noticed the following:
- Using the Plex app on my Roku 3 (connected via HDMI) and playing 1080p content (Roku 3 is a 1080p device) the picture is okay
- Using the Plex app on webOS (i.e. streaming directly to the TV), and playing the same 1080p content, the picture is noticeably better, crisper, as if the upscaling is working much better when streaming directly to the TV
Problem is, Plex app for webOS is not very good and results in buffering (where there is no buffering when playing exactly same files on Roku3). Both Roku 3 and the TV are connected via a wired Ethernet connection, with fixed IP addresses allocated.
Any idea why the picture quality is different? I would be very happy if I could get the same picture from the Roku 3 as I do from the TV Plex app.

I have a suggestion to extend life of oled TVs.
I have read many manufacturers are doing attempts to prevent permanent burn in or Image retention. the most stupid one with another manufacturer was to show a screen saver even if you are watching movie if you do not touch the remote buttons for 30 minutes.
One best approach is to show screen saver when there is no one watching TV, for example when the TV is in the Living Room, a very cheap motion detection sensor at wide angel can detect movements and if there is no one there you can show screen saver or whatever good for oled, the type of sensor is your business.
There are many times a person in the house turns our the TV and is doing his/her things and moving between rooms, the TV can rest bug just the audio is on.
This is also good if someone is working in the kitchen and just want to listen to the TV.
User should be able to customize or turn off this feature.
From the Netherlands. I have a OLED 55C9. Airplay 2 works partly. But Homekit doesn't at all!. When scanning the QR code generated by the TV, the TV says it has been configured with Homekit. However, my Homekit app says that adding the LG OLED has failed. The tv is connected by ethernet and WiFi, the iPhone on the same wifi....With other iPhone no result either.
Some Airplay features work, others not:
MacBook Pro: ScreenMirror works, playing films from iTunes works, playing films directly from QuickTime and selecting Airplay to LG TV DOESN'T work.
iPhone: Airplay works with all features.
Anyone know a solution???
When connected via optical toslink cable, I am only hearing a constant popping noise, and also a high pitch whine. When connected via bluetooth or just using the internal speakers, everything works well. Has anyone had a simular issue or a suggested fix? I've tried both optical 1 and 2 ports in the back of the speaker.
