DLNA not refreshing files


Kuriko

Question

Hello, I have a LG OLED C9 and a Synology Diskstation (Wifi). The LG shows in DLNA only very old files. I can't see new addes files/folders or I see deleted files. There is no "Refresh"-Button. Currently the DLNA for LG OLED C9 is unfortunately useless.

I've seen in my research that that's been a problem for LG TVs for years. How can that be? Is there any workaround or trick to update DLNA?

Yes its a hit or miss with refresh.  If you have a fairly new/capable NAS install PLEX on it. Then install PlEX on your tv as well. It organises your media and everything splendidly.

Otherwise power cycle the tv.

Like the author said, a "Refresh" button would be great.

I've had the same problem with a media server on Windows 10 on my older UK6300 and now on my Nano80, I solved it by turning off the Quick Start+ option in All Settings -> General -> Additional Settings.
It's not ideal since it cause the TV to take more time loading, but the refresh is more important to me.

There is currently only one reliable way, that I know of, to refresh the DLNA files. You have to fully power off the tv and turn it back on. When you press the power button, it does not fully power off. You can either unplug the tv(very inconvenient) or another way I have figured out, go in to settings>general>user agreements, remove the check marks and then hit accept(a bit less inconvenient). Your tv should tell you that it needs to reboot and it will then do a true restart. When you access your DLNA server, it will update the files.

On your NAS, go the the DLNA setup. My Seagate NAS allows me to select how often the DLNA updates.  My was set for once per day (minimum setting), therefore I had the same problems you did, when I added or deleted files I wouldn't see the changes on my TV.  I then changed my setting to every 5 minutes (maximum setting), bingo that did it.  I don't the impact of  doing it so often, so I changed it to every 4 hours now knowing how the system works.   With all that said ... I do believe the LG WebOS Smart TV setting also has something to do with it, I just haven't figured that out yet.

Same problem here - unbelievable, but true.  On our brand new LG OLED TV 55BX many DNLA video files even become unplayable from one day to the other.

So far I fixed all of the above disasters by unplugging the network cable for a short moment.  That refreshes all DNLA files and also fixes the "unable to play"  bla bla...   Even the "refresh" option in the top right corner didn‘t help. It refreshes the list of extern storage devices.
 

Thanks to all these huge companies for spending millions in marketing rather than functioning. I know its not easy - being a software engineer myself - but there seem to be far to few of them amongst the management.

Thanks for the "All Settings -> General -> Additional Settings > Quick Start+ off" suggestion.
I had been working around this problem, when it occasionally occurred, by taking the power cable out of the back of my TV (an LG-43UM7400PLB) and putting it back in, but I don't want to keep doing that, and risk wear and tear.

So this approach, which worked when I tried it just now, seems much better, and turning the TV on doesn't seem much slower, maybe 10 seconds.

I did try that again today,, before finding this suggestion, because it had worked sometimes in the past (I have my TV connected via ethernet), but today it didn't work.

I'm hoping that turning Quick Start+ off will be a more consistent solution, but I'll have to give it some time to see.

      I've got my ThinQ and Google Home apps and Google Home speakers set up to turn off my LG C1.  But they won't turn it on, I guess because the TV isn't listening for commands when off.   I expected that enabling these Settings|General|Devices|TV Management|Quick Start+ Settings|General|Devices|External Devices|TV On With Mobile|Turn on via Wi-Fi would do it, but it did not.
      OMG I just discovered that Alexa turns on the TV...and I never even had to open let alone set it up in the Alexa app!

      Is there any way to delete the preinstalled apps?   I particularly hate the "LG Channels" app because if I were to click the Antennae input inadvertently, something on one of those channels could cause burn in.

      I would like to watch Formula 1 TV Pro on LG OLED55C9PLA, webOS 05.00.10.  No big success yet. The built-in browser does not support the full format, casting of the F1 TV app from Android mobile is unreliable and/or of lower quality. How do you watch F1 TV Pro on LG OLED TV?

      With the health of the environment arguably one of the most pressing concerns in the world today, it is a good time to take stock, reflect and give serious thought to how we can all do our part to create a more sustainable future. In the consumer electronics industry, LG continues to show its commitment to protecting the planet and delivering a better life for all by reducing the environmental impact of its innovations at every stage of the product lifecycle.

      The latest home entertainment solutions from LG serve as fine examples of the company’s efforts to provide maximum user convenience at minimal cost to the Earth. Emblematic of this goal, LG OLED TVs deliver stunning viewing experiences while using a smaller number of components and offering greater recyclability than their LCD counterparts. LG’s self-emissive displays don’t require a backlight like LCD TVs, and because they have fewer parts overall, there is less to recycle and dispose of. For example, the 65-inch LG OLED evo C2 model uses just 40 percent of the plastic of its LCD TV equivalent (model 65UQ80).

      The eco-conscious qualities of LG’s 2022 OLED TVs have been recognized by one of the world’s foremost providers of testing, inspection and certification services, attaining Société Générale de Surveillance SA (SGS) Eco-Product recognition.1 The select 2022 LG OLED evo TVs will display the Carbon Trust’s product carbon footprint label for reducing CO2 throughout the entire product lifecycle.2 Moreover, they also achieved validation to the UL 2809 Environmental Claim Validation Procedure (ECVP) for Recycled Content Standard from global safety science leader, UL, which confirms these products are indeed as environmentally responsible as advertised.3
      For its 2022 OLED TVs4, LG has adopted the use of a new composite fiber material that helps reduce product weight. Additionally, the packaging used for the latest LG OLED TVs is made for recyclable materials and features single-color printing to further save on energy and resources.

      The LG Soundbar lineup also reveals the company’s dedication to environmentally-conscious design. Its sophisticated audio solutions utilize reused and easily recyclable materials, consume only a small amount of power when in use and ship in sustainable packaging. And to top it off, every 2022 LG Soundbar model has received SGS Eco-Product certification in recognition of their environmental impact.

      Furthermore, this year’s soundbars are comprised of parts that have been fabricated from recycled plastic resin. The amount of recycled material used in LG’s new soundbars has been confirmed by UL’s ECVP for Recycled Content Standard and many of LG’s 2022 soundbars also feature a polyester jersey fabric that meets the Global Recycled Standard (GRS).5 What’s more, 2022 LG Soundbars are ENERGY STAR® certified thanks to their efficient use of power.

      By considering the impact our actions have on the environment, and finding better, more sustainable ways to get things done, we can all help to bring about positive change. As a leader in home entertainment innovation, LG will continue to do its part to protect the planet and pave the way to a brighter tomorrow.

      This London Craft Week, visitors to The Conran Shop’s Chelsea and Marylebone locations will be greeted by a feast for the eyes, or perhaps, more accurately, a ‘Forest of Eyes.’ Delivering vivid colors and infinite contrast via millions of self-lit pixels, LG OLED evo TVs will play an important role in stunning, new art installations created by London-based multidisciplinary artist, Yinka Ilori, for leading lifestyle retailer, the Conran Shop.*

      Within each box will be a series of smaller eye-shaped forms, a mirrored floor, and an LG OLED evo TV that blurs the line between real and digital with its immaculate picture quality. The vibrant, accurate colors and deep, inky blacks of LG’s self-lit TVs will accurately reproduce Ilori’s colorific creations on screen, preserving his artistic intentions while seamlessly blending with the installations’ physical elements to help capture the attention – and imagination – of passersby.

      LG OLED evo TVs leverage LG’s most-evolved OLED display tech to create mesmerizing viewing experiences. LG OLED evo technology is the exclusive combination of the company’s cutting-edge picture algorithms and the α9 Gen5 AI Processor. Applied to LG’s 2022 G2 series (LG OLED evo Gallery Edition) and C2 series models, OLED evo elevates the ability of the TVs’ self-lit pixels to deliver superior clarity, detail, contrast and color, for images that practically jump off the screen.

      The joyful, enriching collaboration will also show how well LG OLED evo TVs complement the curated range of designer furniture and home accessories available at The Conran Shop. With premium picture quality and aesthetics, LG’s TVs offer sublime viewing experiences while fitting in perfectly with the most sophisticated of lifestyle solutions.
