LG WebOS TV Hogging my all my bandwidth

Recommended Posts

Hi there

I've had my LG WebOS SmartTV for a couple of months, but in the past week or so I've noticed it's really started eating up all my home's Internet bandwidth, even when I'm just watching FreeSat TV and not running any apps.  It's connected to my router using wired ethernet, so it's not a WiFi problem.

I can only assume that one the apps I've installed is suddenly decided to download a ton of data in the background.  But which one?

The only solution I can think of is to install my apps one-by-one until my bandwidth issue improves.  And that's what I'll do.

But I found this forum, and thought I'd ask you good people if any of you had had a similar experience.

Here's the apps I've got installed:

  • BritBox
  • BBC iPlayer
  • Spotify
  • YouTube
  • Amazon Prime Video
  • NowTV
  • AppleTV

Thanks in advance for any tips

SL

It might be useful to use a Pi-Hole to determine what type of DNS queries the tv is doing. 

I have no idea what Pi-Hole is but I'm off to ask my friend Google.  Thank you so much.

It is a DNS sinkhole but its usefull to determine what domains the tv is trying to access.

Better alternative would be using software like WireSharck or if you Router/Gateway having IP monitoring tools.

      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.

      Hey guys !!!
      I have a UHD UJ634v  LG webos Tv  that lately an error message pops on the screen staying : Tv signal has been lost due to the satellite LNB short.Check LNB connection"
      This is really getting on my nerves because I can't get any signal even after resetting the TV or even updating to the last  software version.
      I check my cable line and fixed every possible problem. The error message keeps showing up even after disconnecting cable line from the back of TV just as if a short circuit or something has happened inside the Tv.
      Do you think that'd be software or hardware failure or something else??? How to fix it?
      Please help me out with this cuz all my lovely satellite TV channels are gone 😐
      Here is the actual error message on the right top o the screen 
      Thanks in advance !!!

      Dear LG team
       
      How to get SONYLIV AND VOOT KIDS app in LG store to install in my LG webos TV
    • By LG user 42LB6500-TH
      LG 42LB6500 is having trouble with display. Fire TV stick, prime video and set top box video are not getting displayed and only audio works. It looks like this is a software issue (current version 05.05.55) and I am not able to fix it by updating software to 05.05.70 via internet (image below) or through usb. Please advice.

      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?
