Hi  George.

Well, no.  They both have the latest software available.  That's ver 04.31.20 for the B6 and ver 05.10.50 for the B8.

One interesting symptom on the B8:  If I sign out of my account and then tell Amazon I'm a new user and create an account with identical credentials (same username/password), it signs me in normally with all my account data intact -- but only for that one session.  When I come back later, it rejects my login again.

Could this be a bug in the ver 05.10.50 web browser?

I can honestly say that I will never buy another LG TV as long as I draw breath - I have never encountered a company so disinterested in helping customers.

I purchased a 49SM8600PLA in October 19. First thing noticed was that the MHEG Channels do not work ... I thought this was no big deal as don't watch
watch them.

However, the latest software update has now borked the Amazon registration so you can't control the TV with an Echo Dot or whatever.

It's curious however, that you can login to the Amazon website via the standard browser but NOT via the page generated from the " Link to Other Devices for
Voice Contol..."

I would take it up with LG ... but after their response from the first problem... it's not worth wasting my breath. 

Buyer Beware !!

Please describe how this helps again.  i'm not familiar with the Alexa skills.  Are you saying that while you are signed in to your Amazon.com account on the Alexa , you can then sign in to the same account from the C9 TV ?

Does it "stick"?  That is, after you sign in that way once, can you sign out on both devices and then sign in again on the C9 without help from the Alexa?

LG never answer questions on this User-to-User forum.

I realize the question, posed in this arena, is rhetorical.  But LG customer service was less than useless regarding their own "browser".

      webOS updated, I think to 2023, on my C2 a couple of days ago. Since then the News option on the Sky News app no longer works, instead timing out. The Weather and Climate options still work, though.
      I have deleted and reloaded the Sky News app, but the problem remains.
      Does anybody have any suggestions of what I might try to get this working again, or is this something for LG, or Sky, to fix?

      Hey everyone, I've been using my LG WebOS TV for some time now, and there's a small but impactful change I'd love to see. Currently, when the TV is turned on without an HDMI input, it defaults to displaying a wallpaper. It's not aesthetically pleasing, it's a bit of an inconvenience for users like me who primarily use the TV's smart features.My suggestion is to include an option that allows the TV to boot directly into the Home screen, displaying all the available apps and streaming options right away. This would streamline the user experience, making it faster and easier to access the services we use most.Would love to hear the community's thoughts on this. Cheers!
