Is there any way of installing an usb gigabit network adapter on a webos smart TV? The builtin wired adapter is only 100mbps (on a 2000$+ TV, shame on you LG!!!) while the wifi (N) is very poor, with the router at 1m from TV it only gets half the bandwidth of the wired network. Anyway the wired network maxes out near 100mbps but I need more bandwidth as I have 4k video content with bitrates grater than 100mbps which I cannot stream without stuttering to TV through XPLAY/PLEX.
Is there an LG WebOS-TV App that allows the simple play of a video file from an SMB (Windows) share. DNLA is very inconvenient, and there are no user access rights.
I want to browse shared folders (from my NAS), select a video file, click, watch, and then delete it.

I am trying to stream and display my favorite song collections on a smart TV, all failed. I had previously used samsung s3 to connect via bluetooth, but when i used iphone x to connect, the system reported an incompatible error. Can someone tell me why the connection was not successful? Here are the songs I want to play on my TV:

Hi, I purchased my SMART TV model 43LF6300 in the year 2016 and current Firmware Version 04.06.40. Every one India using their favorite app like Disney Hotstar+, Zee5, Aaha and many more apps but those are not available on my TV which is annoying.. I spent Rs. 54000 to buy LG Smart TV but all the latest apps are not available. Please release the latest Web OS for these models at least Beta version unless the TVs like this will be useless and no one trust LG products. Thanks in advance and hope to receive latest Web OS soon.

I recently bought a LG Smart TV with WebOS (42LB6500) and would like to connect to my external hard disk connected over network. Here is how my home network and devices are setup.
I have a high speed broadband that comes to my WiFi router (D-Link DSL 2750U) with USB support for External HDD. I have connected my Seagate Ex.HDD to this router and I am able to access the drive over WiFi on my smartphone and computer using the network path \\192.168.1.1\... Once connected I am able to use it similar to any mount location, i.e., read/write files, play media, etc., I want to do similarly with my TV, I would like to use this connected Ex. HDD as any other location and would like to achieve following two things at the least without any additional hardware Play media files on this HDD (very very important) Use the HDD as recording device for timeshift/live pause feature (important)
Any help in this regard would be greatly appreciated.

I started building a client for Kodi that runs on Smart TV LG webos.
As a client, need a Kodi server running on local network to consume the JSON-RPC API.
Communicates through websockets.
I'm looking for developers for the GUI.
Contributions are welcome!!

LIKE THOUSANDS OF OTHERS I WANTED TO SAVE MONEY BY CUTTING THE CORD AND GET RID OF CABLE. I GUESS THAT WAS MY FIRST MISTAKE. I SEARCHED ONLINE FOR OVER A MONTH FOR A SMART TV WITHIN MY PRICE RANGE. LOOKED AT EVERYTHING I COULD THINK OF BEFORE I MADE A DECISION. ON EVERY THING I LOOKED AT NOTHING EVER SAID ANYTHING ABOUT THE MEMORY CAPACITY OF ANY SMART TV THAT I LOOKED AT SO I DIDNT EVEN THINK ABOUT IT. THAT WAS ANOTHER MISTAKE. I FINALLY DECIDED TO GET AN LG BECAUSE I ALSO HAVE 2 LG SMART PHONES THAT WORK GREAT SO AN LG TV SHOULD BE EVEN BETTER. I JUST KEEP MAKING THESE MISTAKES. WELL I FINALLY DECIDED ON A 55 INCH LG 556090PUA BECAUSE IT WAS WITHIN MY PRICE AND IT CAME WITH A FREE SOUND BAR PROVIDED BY THE ONLINE STORE I BOUGHT IT FROM. WELL I HOOKED EVERY THING UP AND WHEN I STARTED NOSING AROUND IN THE TV SETTINGS THAT IS WHEN I FOUND OUT THAT THIS SMART TV STRAIGHT OUT OF THE BOX BEFORE UPDATES AND BEFORE ANY APPS ARE INSTALLED ONLY COMES WITH 0.54 GB OF INTERNAL MEMORY. IM THINKING NOPE THIS HAS TO BE WRONG BECAUSE EVEN MY FIRESTICK HAS ALMOST 5 GB OF MEMORY SO IT IS IMPOSSIBLE FOR A SMART TV TO HAVE ALMOST 10 TIMES LESS MEMORY THAN A FIRESTICK. .ANOTHER MISTAKE. SO I WENT AND UPDATED 2 APPS THAT CAME PREINSTALLED WITH THE TV. I UPDATED YOUTUBE AND I UPDATED PRIME VIDEO. MY 0.54 FELL DOWN TO 0.42 GB. LG CLAIMS THAT YOU CAN DOWNLOAD APPS ONTO THEIR TVS BUT YET HOW IS THAT EVEN POSSIBLE WHEN EVERY PREINSTALLED APP ON THIS SMART TV NEEDS UPDATES BUT IF I UPDATE ANY MORE THAN THE 2 THAT I DID I WOULD BE OUT OF MEMORY AND THE LESS MEMORY THAT YOU HAVE THE SLOWER YOUR DEVICE RUNS. I WOULD JUST LIKE TO KNOW WHO IN BLUE BLAZES EVER THOUGHT TO CALL THIS DUMBER THAN A DUMB TV A SMART TV. SO NOW IN ORDER TO SAVE MONEY I HAVE TO SPEND MONEY. SCRATCHING MY HEAD ON THAT ONE. BUT IN ORDER FOR THIS SMART TV TO BE SMART I HAD TO BUY A FIRESTICK SO I CAN INSTALL PROGRAMS ON IT TO WATCH AS WELL AS BUY AN EXTERNAL MEMORY CARD TO SAVE THINGS TO. ITS A JOKE. THE SMARTEST THING ABOUT THIS TV IS LG ITSELF WHO DECIDED TO MAKE A DUMB TV AND PUT A SMART TV PRICE TAG ON IT. BECAUSE LG KNEW THAT A STUPID GUY LIKE MYSELF WOULD BUY IT FROM THEM AS LONG AS THEY JUST FUDGED THE DETAILS A LITTLE BIT. SO ME BUYING A SMART TV LEFT ME WITH 2 EMPTY POCKETS WITH NOTHING TO SHOW FOR IT A SMART TV WITH ITS OWN VERSION OF THE SCARECROWS CLASSIC ON THE WIZARD OF OZ SINGING IF I ONLY HAD A BRAIN. AND LG THEY ARE LAUGHING AT ME THE ENTIRE TIME AS THEY ARE RUNNING THEMSELVES ALL THE WAY TO THE BANK TO DEPOSIT MY CHECK AND CALLING ME A SUCKER. SO PAT YOURSELVES ON THE BACK LG. I ADMIT IT YOU GOT ME. BUT THAT MISTAKE WILL NEVER BE MADE AGAIN BY ME. AND ALSO IN HOPES OF OTHERS NOT MAKING THE MISTAKE THAT I DID I HAVE MADE POSTS ON REDDIT FACEBOOK YOUTUBE AND TWITTER ABOUT LG STEALING MONEY OUT OF A WORKING MANS POCKETS AND I AM NOT DONE BADMOUTHING LG YET. SEVERAL PEOPLE WHO FOLLOWS MY VARIOUS POSTS HAVE GIVEN ME NEW IDEAS ON HOW I CAN GET MY MESSAGE OF LG RIPPING PEOPLE OFF. I DONT GET MAD I GET EVEN. YOU STOLE MONEY FROM ME SO I AM STEALING POTENTIAL CUSTOMERS FROM YOU JUST BY SPEAKING THE TRUTH. OF COURSE LG IF YOU WANT YOU COULD TRY AND SUE ME FOR TRYING TO BESMIRCH THE LG LOGO. BUT IF YOU DO THAT IT WOULD ONLY MAKE LG LOOK EVEN WORSE AND I CAN GUARANTEE YOU THAT IF I GET SUED THAT ALL THAT YOU WILL GET PAID BY ME WOULD BE MONTHLY INSTALLMENTS OF POCKET LINT BECAUSE THAT IS ALL THAT YOU LEFT ME WITH WHEN YOU SOLD ME A DUMB TV WITH A SMART PRICE TAG. BUNCH OF DAMN WANKERS.
