Hi there,. 

It is now clear that any  OS, except android and apple,  suffers from low number of apps. 

It is a shame to struggle with a 'named smart tv' to run a Web site or find a commonly used app! 

 

Ok! We are stuck with this rubbish OS (bad OS due to the poor App stoee) , why LG doesn't develop an adapter to run android TV apps on the TV? Maybe after testing them, you can allow certain famous apps. Moreover, why don't they provide an easy porting tool for the developer?

Anyway, if they don't do this, I would advise any one to buy an android TV and ignore the useless OSs such as Tiazen or Webos. 

Regards,

This is a TV and not a PC. It's "smart" in the sense that it can do other simple stuff aside just live TV or pre-recorded video. You can watch YouTube, download available apps etc ..but trying and asking to turn a tv into a full blown emulator? That's a mighty stretch at this stage.

If you want android apps natively on your TV, it would make more sense to buy a TV based on Android. Simples.

Hi Sbzz, 

 

That is fine, and based on this, LG shall expect less sales as people will move to Android. Another Nokia story! Fair enough. 

I will do my best to advise anyone NOT to buy a TV with Webos, to avoid spelling his money down the drain.

Yes, fair enough. They must pay for wasting my money on a piece of retro! 
You could return your TV if not happy with it or sell it and buy an Android based TV.

What issues are you having with the LGTV connecting to your Apple TV?
You know it's just a TV that displays what ever signal you feed it right?

I'm aware that it's a TC that displays whatever signal I feed it. That's how I'm using it. No free to air. No real app use.

The only "issue" I'm having currently is that Dolby Atmos passthrough doesn't work with the Disney Channel app for an LG sound bar. 

By "seamless" what I mean is that the TV gets out of the way of the signal I'm feeding it. I'd like to use it like a dumb monitor for the Apple TV/DVD Player/Whatever unless I want some smartness. So get rid of the "no input" message that comes up while the Apple TV is connecting to the TV, let me hide the Web OS logo,  just recognise that I'm using it for input only and don't want any other intrusions, until I ask for them. In one word: Elegance.

Does that make sense?

Yes, but you are not going to find it with LG. Or, Samsung, TLC, Philips etc.

Elegance like perfection is unobtainable.

      I had recently purchased LG NANO80 and got the WebOS updated too. However, I am not able to find Zee5 App to download. All the other Apps viz. ALT Balaji, Netflix, PrimeVideo and many others are listed in the AppStore but Zee5 is neither available by default nor available for download. Is it removed? 
      Thanks for any help in advance.

      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 installed a few apps trying to get Casting to work that didn't work properly and I can't find anyway to uninstall them. My TV doesn't seem to have edit mode perhaps because I have had it a few years (pre-2018 some when- possibly its 10 years old or more as I can't remember when I got it). Anyone know how I can uninstall them?
