When I'm using the Youtube app it drops me out and the TV restarts and show the following error code: -201 "Server Certificate has expired or is not yet valid as the set time on TV is different from the current time, Please check time settings", do you you how to fix this error?
Hi, just bought a new LG OLED and pretty fast noticed that I`ve now chance to change the wallpapers ?!?
Really pretty strange - even the smallest smartphone offers such a feature. The TV has enough USB interfaces - why is it not able to customize this by an own set of pictures ?
Can`t be that big rocket science to implement this , especially for such an expensive device this should be a standard feature !!!
Or did I miss something in the settings of the TV ?

Only a few years ago, outside of sprawling factories, robots were the realm of science fiction. Today, automatons are making their way into our daily lives, in no short part due to social distancing requirements, as robots don’t need to breathe. It may not be far off in the future when robot-led services become essential to keeping the world moving while human overlords remain at a safe distance!
At CES 2021, LG’s CLOi family of robots led by GuideBot, ServeBot, ChefBot and UV-C Robot demonstrated capabilities that go beyond welding car sheet metal and playing chess. These high-tech robots are intended to be deployed in public spaces such as restaurants, hospitals and office buildings to assistant humans without requiring human-to-human interaction.
LG CLOi ServeBot
LG CLOi ServeBot comes in two helpful variants – drawer and shelf – to deliver goods inside hotels, hospitals and restaurants. Whether it’s transporting medicine and drugs from one hospital floor to another or navigating tables at a posh Italian restaurant with plates of pasta, this smart robot can take multiple instructions at once to deliver stuff in the correct order following the most efficient route possible.
LG CLOi ServeBots are hard at work in a convenience store located on the LG Sciencepark research campus to deliver snacks and beverages to employees in nearby offices, even on different floors accessible only by elevators. Items being delivered are kept secure under lock and key which can only be unlocked once the robot reaches its destination.
LG CLOi ChefBot and GuideBot
LG CLOi ChefBot is a six-axis multi joint robot that can prepare delicious noodle-based dishes for customers at restaurants with machine-like consistency.
LG CLOi GuideBot was designed as an approachable information desk for destinations such as airports, shopping malls and exhibition halls. The helpful guide boasts an expansive touchscreen that houses a variety of information to help people get where they’re going easily.
LG CLOi UV-C Robot
The 1.6 meter tall LG CLOi UV (ultraviolet C) Robot turned plenty of heads at CES 2021. With large UV lamps on its front and back, this mobile hygiene machine has been proven to disinfect 99.9 percent* of colon bacillus within a distance of 50 centimeters.*
Through its human motion sensor, this robot can be operated via mobile app to minimize human operators’ exposure to ultraviolet light. LG’s UV robot will make its way first in the U.S. later this year.
LG CLOi BaristaBot
LG CLOi BaristaBot is offering its future-inspired expertise at select cafes in Seoul, South Korea to lend a helping hand during a time of prolonged social distancing. Designed with the ability to consistently deliver a delicious serving of coffee, this supercharged barista utilizes its vast database of type of beans, water temperature and brewing time to create a perfect cup every time.
LGs CLOi is presenting humans with a world where interacting with robots, even on an emotional level, isn’t only possible, but desirable as well. And who doesn’t want more time to focus on the things that really matter and make life so good?

I bought a 77-inch GX at the end of December last year. The TV came about a week later and I paid for professionally installation because it needs to be wall mounted. I used it for about a week and it is dead -- it won't turn on and pressing the power button would just cause the screen to flash white and made a clicking sound.
I bought the TV on Amazon through a third party vendor, so I contacted them on Amazon to have it exchanged. They told me no can do because I don't have the packaging any more. I am a bit upset because who keeps a 77-inch TV's box in an NYC apartment after making sure it works for a few days. They said if they were to take it back I'll have to pay $600 restocking fee.
I thought that's not the end of the world because the TV is clearly under warranty. So I contacted LG. LG contracted some local technician to come and replace the logic board a week later -- there was a delay in shipping the board, so I had to wait for a week.
The tech came, replaced the board, but still no luck. He thought the problem was with the power assembly unit with where all the capacitors are. He took a photo, sent it to his people, and told me that the parts are backordered so I'll need to wait for up to 2 weeks. If I don't hear from them in 2 weeks, call them and they'll submit a request to LG to replace the unit.
Obviously I was upset because I've now paid more than $4k to have a giant slab of dead screen sitting on my couch -- it needed to be unmounted for the repair. I'll probably have to pay someone to help me mount it when it is fixed. So I contacted the vendor again and vented all the problems. They said they want to do good by me and they are one of the biggest vendors for LG on the east coast so they had some pull. They asked for my case number and said they'll escalate with LG.
One week passed and they still haven't heard anything back from LG. I tried calling LG and I've must spent more than 3 hours on the phone with them at this point. I spoke to like 6 or 7 different people from different department, and was able to have them create a refund/exchange case for me because they told me the parts won’t be ready till March. After I uploaded the receipt, I called again but now I'm being told all sorts of conflicting information.
All of them told me that it'll take another 7 business days for my case to be reviewed. At this point I'd be without a TV for more than 3 weeks. After that they don't know what's gonna happen. I've been told:
I'll buy a box from Home Depot or whatnot and LG will reimburse me the money, and then I ship the TV back.
LG will ship me a box to ship the TV back.
Because I bought it on Amazon from this vendor, they cannot do exchange so the best they can do is a refund. This is kind of ridiculous because if it depends on the vendor I'd try to work with the vendor.
They have a procedure to return the TV without its original packaging, but they can't tell me what it is until my case is approved.
I even asked if I can buy the same TV from a different vendor (the vendor that I originally bought from have the TV on backorder), use it in the meantime, and return the broken TV in the new TV's box. And the rep doesn't know if that'll work. I was a bit mad at this point because a box from Home Depot would work but a box for the same model from a different vendor wouldn't?
It'll take 7 business days to approve, and after that up to 7 weeks for full resolution, whatever that means. I guess that means me receiving a replacement or a refund?
I do like this TV (when it works), and I really don't want to return it and deal with the damages on my wall. But it looks like all signs point to me not able to get even my money back for another month or so, not to mention to get a exchange. I sometimes say to myself maybe I should just wait it out and buy the G1. Also the price of GX dropped like $300 between when I bought it and now, so I basically spent $300 more for one week of watching and countless hours of complaining on the phone.
The vendor says they are still working with their LG contact but honestly I'm not hopeful. Not that I don't trust the vendor, but given my experience with LG, they don't seem to know what they are doing and they definitely don't know what is a good customer experience.
I guess the moral of the story is, keep your TV box as long as you can...
