@Kai Hendry Make sure that the room where the TV is, has a good/strong WiFi signal.  Check what your smart phone is using (2.4GHz WiFi band, or the 5GHz band), and make sure that the TV is using the SAME BAND.  NOTE: do not confuse the WiFi 5GHz band with 5G phone capability, that just means "Fifth Generation"..... 😊

Also, check the WiFi strength "bars" icon, on the smart phone, in the same room as the TV to gauge its strength. If you have a laptop, it is much better to check the WiFi signal strength and quality with a nice utility from Nirsoft, called "WiFiInfoView". It is free, check here:

Just download that, unzip it into its own folder, and run the .EXE executable from that new folder (you can right click and creat a shortcut to it on the desktop wallpaper, for later use).

By the way, if you can log into your router, go to the Settings, WiFi (both bands), and go to advanced, check the channels in use, try 36 or 44 for the 5GHz, or 8 for the 2.4GHz, AND ensure that the SSID names for both are not longer than 8 characters, and do not have any special characters in them (like BigAls'WiFi!~ or similar), as some LG TV sets do not like that.

@Kai Hendry Thanks for confirming that, I would NOT have known that fact until you posted it! What about "Check what your smart phone is using (2.4GHz WiFi band, or the 5GHz band), and make sure that the TV is using the SAME BAND."?? If the WiFi is strong, why did you choose to use a wired LAN cable, as that limits you to  100Mbps, and the 2.4GHz WiFi can be 150 - 300MBPS, with the 5GHz around  600 - 900Mbps or more  depending on your router model?  With the connectivity being intermittent, It might be worth disconnecting the TV LAN cable, and trying to see if connecting up the WiFi side stops the issue, BUT use the same band that the phone is using.

@Kai Hendry Before you take that drastic decision (that might not fix the issue), please consider this technical post I spotted on an Apple forum below, as I beleive that is DOES cover your error scenario, as I think the issue IS on the Airplay side, not the receivng (TV) side. Just because you get a good basic "connection" between the iPhone and the TV, does NOT mean that a complex APP protocol will fully function. Please read the quote below:

"The symptoms you describe are as if the multicast airplay discovery packets are being blocked. Some routers don't route these between wifi and ethernet, even on the same router. Other routers handle this and it's not an issue. You should never need bluetooth to make the AirPlay connection. The "Use AirPlay to wirelessly stream content from your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch - Apple Support" Apple help document doesn't even mention ethernet, only wifi. When the ATV is wired, AirPlay from iPad may work intermittently, as you describe. It appears to "work", which is surprising, but then it just fails totally. Using bluetooth as you describe may get you past initial discovery, but there are still internal packets that expect to go direct over the wifi. I hope you can resolve at least some of these problems by switching the Apple TV [or the TV in your case] to wifi [from the current wired Etehernet LAN]." 

By the way, you might STILL need to check your WiFi SSID name, and see if the 2.4GHZ and 5GHz have DIFFERENT SSID names for each, or if they are merged into 1 name.  You will be fine if the 5GHz signal is strong and has a good signal quality, but can "flap" (disconnect/reconnect) between the bands if the name is merged, and the quality drops. Some complex apps can be sensitive to this.

"So I was having this same issue described in this thread and I believe I resolved the issue by making a change to my wireless network.

My wireless access controller (enterprise cisco network however same applies even for home routers) was advertising one SSID for both 2.4 & 5.1 GHz wireless networks. There is a feature in most new wireless access points called band steering. If you only create one SSID for your wireless network and it rides both your 2.4GHz and 5GHz network than your device will switch bands [flap] based on many factors including interference / congestion / signal strength. This explains the randomness of the connectivity as a microwave, or passing car, cell phone, or neighbour [on the same channel] can generate wireless interference very easily. The issue resides with the sending device however, because the issue was still happening on Apple TV's [and your TV scenario] that were not configured for wireless and actually plugged in via ethernet.

So my solution was to create a separate 2.4GHz and 5GHz wireless network SSID (wireless2.4 & wireless5.1 for example) and then configure my laptops and other APPLE devices on the network to only connect to the 5GHz network, and not allow them to switch based on the algorithm it uses to determine what the best connection is."

I think I found an issue with my Iphone DNS being set to Google DNS's 8.8.8.8. When I turned it to automatic, it appears to work more reliably.

 

Another element is to ensure Youtube is exited before trying to Airplay.

 

Nonetheless the whole "Smart TV" experience is a bit... underwhelming to say the least!

 

Thanks for your time.

      I am creating a streaming application, where user can access a list of mkv files from my server, Mkv is not supported in web browsers and it is not loading properly within my webOS web app.
      I cannot modify my files to another video format.
      Is there a native player for LG WebOS that I can embed into my web application ?
      Is there any video player with web sdk to play mkv on a smart tv.
      Ps: my videos are working well on chrome, as for Firefox or Safari, it tells me that the format is not supported.

      Just getting the runaround from LG, only want a baseline figure, they sent me this
       
      , our technicians have explained that we cannot calculate the unit's actual power consumption when not in standby because there are too many factors that could affect this calculation. These factors include how many pixel refreshers are run, whether the unit is connected to the internet, external devices connected, speakers connected, sound systems connected, HDD connected and recording set ups. I am afraid that we consequently cannot answer your question.

      we all know LG are not helpful to customers , but there’s no need to keep proving it.
      this TV has a good energy rating so figures must be available, they either dont care or understand what I am asking
       
      thanks

      The problem that my QNAP NAS Mediaserver disappears from the WebOS Home screen and from the Home dashboard happens irregularly and unpredictably almost daily. The only way to get it back is to reset WebOS to its initial (factory) settings. After I do that, it always reappears on the Home scree/Home dashboard. I have no idea why this happens, it even happens after I watch an hour of movie content from the NAS and then want to browse through the files on the NAS: it suddenly is not accessible anymore. I tried to tweak (a lot of) the NAS settings but nothing helps.  
      My NAS has a fixed IP in my home LAN. Is it possible to connect to it with the IP address? 
      Any other suggestions how to remedy this tedious problem are welcome!

      In the file attached is a photo of the Home dashboard with the Mediaserver present.

      Apple has been rolling out the Apple TV app to many different platforms, including smart TVs, games consoles, and third-party streaming devices like the Amazon Fire Stick or Roku streaming sticks.
      In a slight twist, the company is also launching a ‘Apple TV+’ app for older LG webOS TVs. Update: The TV+ app is also now available on older Samsung smart TV models.
      The launch was first spotted by FlatpanelsHD, and later confirmed by an LG support document.
      The standard Apple TV app is available on 2018 and newer LG webOS TVs. This special Apple TV+ app is targeted at 2016 and 2017 models.
      Although the name and logo is different, the actual app experience appears identical to the TV app — except that you can only watch TV+ content. The Watch Now and other iTunes Store tabs are simply missing.
      Somewhat comically, that means this app has just three tabs in the top navigation — Apple TV+, Search and Settings. It also means that the Up Next functionality previously found in the Watch Now tab is now awkwardly located as an inline row at the top of the tv+ page.
      It is true that many proponents of Apple TV+ — including me — have wanted less focus on the iTunes Store in the TV app in order to focus on the content available to us with the subscription, but this particular stripped-down incarnation is not quite what we had in mind.

      Please add Apple Airplay 2 Support to WebOS back to 2018/2017 models (where HW allows to). 
      For audio steaming to Apple HomePods this is essential; although I‘m mostly using AppleTV with my LG OLED TV, for other apps or live TV I can‘t get the HomePods to use. 
      I‘ve seen this request in various forums but not here in the WishList - hence this post: it‘s fair to say that there is legitimate and popular demand.
