Bonjour,

I just bought an LG TV: 43UM7450PLA and I have a few questions about the use of this TV.

1- On my home network, I have a DLNA server where are stocked films, music and photos. When I want to play music, sometimes the answer is: "there is no music files in that folder". Strange answer because there are music files in the folder and because sometimes this music is played without any complaint from the TV.  How can I know why this answer (no music files...) is given? Are there some log files somewhere in the TV?

2- I often watch the TV via the internet navigator and it is very difficult to have a stable connection, the stream is often interrupted or stopped with a message error (an error occured, try again). If I watch the same TV stream at the same time on my computer, it works like a charm. Why this different behaviour on the TV?

Thank you for your lightd.

F.P.

So, as this TV has the ability to use either a LAN cable, or WiFi on either a 2.4G (802.11n) or the 5G band (802.11ac spec), do you know WHICH band you connect to, if you are using WiFi rather than the LAN cable? The reason I ask, is that most non-tech users do NOT realize that the 5G WiFi band signal strength drops off rapidly the further you are away from the Router. Larger houses are much worse of course. If you have a smart phone, you can walk around your house, watching the WiFi signal strength Icon at the top, and see how many radial bars you get on that icon when in the place where the TV is. So, if you phone can connect to the 5G WiFi band, check that signal state near the TV. If it is a low number of "bars" (NOT the Phone tower strength icon, the WiFi Icon bars), then you have most likely found your issue.

In the same place where the TV is, you should then check the 2.4G band, by connecting the phone to that band, and checking the signal strength bars.  If that is much better (as I suspect it might be), then try one of the possible workarounds below.

There are a few ways you can remedy this issue. The first way will not involve any cost: you can try to change the WiFi network connection for the TV, so that it connects to the  2.4G band instead (hopefully you have different SSID names for each one so it is easy to see/check), and recheck how things are.  Hopefully that wil be more stable (but will only run at 150Mbps - 300Mbps, but still faster the 100MB LAN speed).

If the WiFi is STILL too weak on both bands where the TV is, you might have to invest in either a PLA (Power Line Adaptor) to get the Ethernet signals to the TV easily via the mains plug wiring (they use HomePlug AV2 technology) . You have one by the router, and the other plug device by your TV, so it uses 2 short LAN cables, one to each adaptor plug device.  The other alternative is to use a WiFi repeater, that extends your WiFi coverage to the parts of the house where it is weaker.  I hope this is useful.

**UPDATE** I just noticed on another forum, that certainLG models might have difficulty saving WiFi network SSID names longer than 8 characters!! Odd I know, but if yours is a bit longer, try logging into your router and changin your network SSID names to shorter ones, and reconnecting. A pain I know, as other devices wil have to be edited to connect.

      Is there a way to fix it? Maybe a downgrade?

      Hello,
      Is it possible to add the driver for external usb 3 gigabit ethernet adapters  in the firmware to support them and get more network bandwith like on the oled TV C9 and CX (see https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RgJUUNCsHao) to give to the product the ability to play 4K hdr mkv remux of high bit rate blurays without stuttering (like gemini man or billy lynn for example streamed from Plex server with giga network) ? If you play the same file on direct attached usb drive, no stuttering at all and it's ultra fast to load and fast forward for example.
      It already supports external usb2 FastEthernet adapters with ASIX AX88772 chipset and work well on both type A and type C ports, I have tested it, but it is also a 100Mbit/s adapter like the integrated one, so same bandwith, and stuttering is always here.
      The driver that need to be added to the firmware is the one for the usb 3 gigabit ethernet adapters with ASIX AX88179 chipset like on oled C9 and CX, but no luck, at least with firmware 3.0.0.8 it is not supported, eihter with type A  ports or with the type C port (I have tested both, RJ45 leds stay OFF, the same with a power usb 3 hub in between, driver not included in the firmware).
      I have also tesed usb3 gigabit ethernet adapter with realtek RT L8153 chipset, wich is seems to be supported on older oled C7 and C8, but it is also not supported (blinking leds this time but no connection, driver not included in the firmware).
      This is very frustrating for a 1800$ product !

      I recently updated the firmware on my  LG43UH610V.  Now I constantly get "Wired Lan cable disconnected" / "Wired network is connected" messages even while watching a video file from my NAS. The TV is connected and using the network while getting these messages. It has always been on a fixed IP address on the LAN.
