Why only 100Mbit wired connection?

Question

I've just been testing playing 4k UHD Blu-Ray rips from my DLNA server to the DLNA client built into my OLED 55 B6T. The playback keeps stuttering because the bitrate can exceed 100Mbit, and the Ethernet connection on the TV is only 100Mbit. I know the problem isn't with the DLNA server because I can stream the same rips from the server to my PC, which has a gigabit NIC, and get no stuttering.

Do later model LG sets have gigabit connections? I had a look on the LG website, but the specs for the sets just say they have a LAN connection without specifying the speed.

Hi @Nick Payne

Unfortunately it is something that TV manufacturers, not just LG, have not yet adopted.  Other users on the forum have circumvented the issue to a degree by using an USB to Ethernet adapter to increase their wired network speed.  A little searching will find you the thread.

We don’t have gigabit ethernet because they don’t assume one would be using DLNA or PLEX for such high bitrate files.For streaming 30 is more than sufficient, hence 100 Mbit.

For 4K remuxes use wifi ac with decent signal (I easily get 200+) if your OLED has it.I use wifi ac with C8 & it works flawlessly.

If you want to go hardwired get a Gigabit LAN to USB 3.0 adapter. You can search for compatible models on reddit.

      I have two LG OLEDs.  I have given each a name in the WebOS.  Occasionally when a TV is powered on, I am first requested to enter the TV name along with the dialog to enter text with  the on screen keyboard.  I can enter anything and it is accepted and I get past that screen and then normal operation follows.  This happens on both TVs albeit only occasionally.   It is a real nuisance when this happens and I see no need for this.
      Has anyone else experienced this and if so, is there a solution to disable this behavior?  Is there some setting that I have missed?
      Thanks,
      Bobby

      After updating my TV (OLED65GXPUA) on August 31, 2020 the HDMI-ARC volume support changed: pressing the volume up/down button once on the magic remote will continuously apply volume changes until the volume has reached the maximum or minimum value.  Prior to this update volume changes over the HDMI-ARC interface behaved as expected: one press of the remote button would apply one increment or decrement to the volume.  A Klipsch Bar 48 is attached to the TV over the HDMI-ARC interface.
      After the update the TV is running:  webOS TV version 5.1.1-3701, Software version 03.10.41.  I do not have the version information prior to the update.

      Screen flickers real bad and seems to be getting worse over time should I make a claim it is only month and half old or this normal, now it is doing this every few minutes?

      I have the following setup:
       
      LG 55EF950V television which is running webOS 2.2.0-1317 (this should be the latest version of the OS).
       
      I have a number of video files on my Synology DiskStation DS413 NAS which I connect to with the TV over DLNA (on the TV this is Smart Share -> Devices -> (NAS))
       
      I can see all the video files and play them etc., however when viewing the list of files I dont see any thumb images even though I have a JPEG image for each file.  For example: "My Video.mkv" has a thumb call "My Video.jpg".  For collections I put a "cover.jpg" image in the directory (this doesnt work either on the LG TV).
       
      Has anyone else out there managed to get a webOS 2 TV to show video thumb nail images for videos over DLNA?
       
       
      BTW: this all works when I use a Samsung TV so I dont think it has anything to do with the way the Synology DiskStation DS413 NAS is setup.

      I have lg tv model 49UJ6525, last weekend the tv updated to version 05.80.35, but now I realized that I can no longer use the 5 GHz WIFI network, the network is disconnecting and connecting all the time. I did a test with the 2.4 Ghz network and it works normal, but I would like to use the 5GHz network.
      Is it possible to solve this problem?
