OLED65E7P update?


Roadrunner99

Question

OLED65E7P bought in USA but later converted to India region by following the below link 

link hidden, please login to view

Current software version is 05.80.15
It won't find any new updates while checking from TV menu.

Should I upgrade it to 05.80.55 by downloading from LG India website?

Reason for asking is sometimes the apps act funny, especially Hotstar app seems buggy or not quick to respond. Does work ok most of the time. 

Thanks for any helpful advice.

@Roadrunner99 There is always a risk using software the might not be well tested for a specific TV and country mix. Also, the HOTSTAR could have bugs of its own, when used on certain TV models. I would say it could be a 50/50 chance that the Hotstar app has bugs, and the firmware has bugs.

Have  05.80.55 on my 65B7P, no problems encountered so far, the tv is set to auto firmware update so can’t tell from when it runs it.
But The thing that irritates me about this oled tv is permanent image burning. I can see a cnn square ghost on different colors especially orange. I’ ll post a thread.

Updated to 05.80.55 firmware from US website, which has the atsc in the file name instead of dvb. Even though TV is used in India it seemed less risky to stick to the original lineage.

Now the webOS TV Version shows as 3.8.0-61114 (dreadlocks2-dunggir)  while the firmware shows as 05.80.55 on TV.

How to update the WebOS to the latest? and what is the latest version?
 

Also, at lg.com/in for the same model it shows two different updates

05.80.55 & 4.70.36, don't understand why? should i install both?

@Roadrunner99 If the 05.80.55 firmware loads, installs, and the TV works OK, stick with that.

I believe that any WebOS updates (if applicable) would come "bundled" with any valid Firmware update that is compatible with the models it is designed for. I understand that the TV hardware (chip-sets and CPU and memory capabilities) are the main limiting factor for having WebOS updates (or not). Some older TV's (2014 - 2015) models had a stripped-down WebOS V4 called 3.5 Lite, but LG do not have the money and resources to bring tailored WebOS releases to every TV variant from say 2013  - 2016, just to get  few featured and software/app compatibilities, when the main "new features" can only be supported by later hardware "chip-sets" on the motherboards of the 2019/2020 sets (that cover later hardware and software standards and protocols) that will work properly WITH those new/later WebOS levels (e.g. WebOS 5.x). Remember that specifications (HDMI eARC, device and IoT support) and functionality and protocols are changing all the time, and much of that has to be embodied INSIDE the chip-sets in the hardware itself, and NOT emulated in software, as it is inefficient and slows down performance.  See this link for some old complaints about WebOS lack of updates:
