jpg photos not displayed via dlna


frpatte

Question

Bonjour,

I have a Webos TV: LG 43UM 7450

Since the last software update, I can't display my photos which are on a dlna home server. films and audio files are displayed and can be played on the TV, only the pictures are not: "directories empty" says the bird?

The names of the directories, the dates of photos, the name of the camera are displayed, so the TV has an access to the exif metadta but not to the image itself!!

What can be done?

Thank you for helping.

F.P.

@frpatte Unless you have a USB stick with the previous working firmware on it,there is no way to get back to the working level.

Have you reported this issue to your local country LG support? The more that report it, the better chance you have of (eventually) getting a fix.

By the way, in case they have changed some DLNA protocols for technical/security reasons, check that your DLNA devices have the latest firmware and software layers (apps) installed.

Thank you for this answer.

1- What is the way to get the firmware for my TV. I would have it (and how to install it) in case that at the next upgrade, films or audio from my nas won't work!

2- I will report the issue to the french lg support.

3- I tried several dlna server (minidla, emby, kodi...) The result is the same for the photos: metadata only are read by the tv! So, I can choose to watch what are the camera I used, when I take the photos, but I can't see the photos.

Regards.

@frpatte OK, just to confirm: What is the firmware version that recently installed, was it 05.00.02 or 05.00.10?

If the later one, try downloading the older one, and put it on a USB stick and install it on the TV. If the older one (05.00.02), was the one installed recently, and caused the issue, see below:

Put in your model number 43UM7450PLA and you will get a list of 2 firmware versions, 05.00.10 with a December date, and 05.00.02 with a November date. You can select the older one if the newer one was updated via an OTA update, and caused the issue, OR if you are still on the older one, then DO download the newer one, as it fixes "minor bug fixes" that MIGHT include your issue (it does NOT expand on what those are). You will need to download that on your Laptop/PC, into a known folder for you to UNZIP it to place the file inside it into its own area, so that you can then copy it to the ROOT of a USB stick (i.e. F:\<firmware file name> and NOT within a folder. Download the  Software Update Guide PDF and follow the instructions for a USB upgrade.

Thank you for your help. The firmware on my TV is 05.00.10. I downloaded the 05.00.02  as you suggested, but I can't install it on the TV. I unzipped the file, copy it at the root of an usb stick and when I open this stick on the TV, 3 icons open (video, music, recording) each are seen as empty and nothing else is proposed.

I tried to make a directory LG_DTV and copy the firmware in it,  as suggested by the "update software update guide" found on the same page as the firmware, but this fails too.

What is the right way to replace the firmware?

Thank you.

@frpatte Thanks for the feedback. I assume the file that you saw when you unzipped the downloaded file, was:

"starfish-dvb-secured-k5lp-539.gyeryongsan.k5lp-53902-05.00.02_prodkey_usb_V3_SECURED.epk"  is that correct?

NOTE: to see "file-types" (file extensions, like the .EPK on the end of the file above) in File Explorer on Windows 7 or Windows 10, you need to ensure that the  View options have the File Nem Extensions box ticked (I tend to have the Hidden Files one as well, as I do system admin work).

On the TV side, did you use the "Stay" option, as in the install PDF when you inserted the stick? Then it MIGHT allow the older level to install, BUT the install routine might ignore it of it is BELOW the current level. If that is the case, then you will have to wait for the next update from LG.

NOTE: going into the Smartshare or similar media file display/play APP trying to look at the USB contents, will ONLY show the types of files that IT is designed to show or play, so you will NOT see files like .EPK firmware files, or .BIN files etc. even though they may be there.

Yes it is correct.

I did not see any "Stay" or other invite button when I plugged the stick in. I could only go to the connection tab and click on the usb button.

If the TV does not allow to downgrade the system, is there a mean to turn off this interdiction?

      Hey there,  I have had a  OLED55B6P for ten months and I love it but

      I have a problem all a sudden, just today it starts to show a black screen with fire works every minutes if I don't press a button on the remote.

      I have no eco mode on, no power save modes on, TV firmwire is up to date, and tried turning off on and on the tv.

      I want to control my C1 with my Google Home speakers, but my Android LG ThinQ app is not sending the correct info to my Android Google Home app to link the ThinQ service.  
      When I try, the error message says "No devices were found in your LG ThinQ account".  However, the ThinQ app is signed into my account and successfully controlling my C1.
      Google Home support and I think the issue is with the ThinQ app.

      link hidden, please login to view says this should work.  My LG support agent told me it's not supported; I'm guessing she was new.

      Hi, I'm curious if anyone else is seeing this annoying new behaviour.
      I have my SKY Q box on HDMI1 and have become accustomed to switching back from Netflix (or any other app for that matter) by having HDMI1 assigned to button "1" using the Quick Access feature.  In the last week though, this feature has stopped working properly. If I am in Netflix and I press the "1" button, nothing happens (as expected). If instead I hold down the "1" button to switch to SKY I get a pop up that says this: "Do you want to add Netflix to [Quick Access 1]?".   If I then hold down the "0" button, the 3x3 grid "EDIT QUICK ACCESS" pop-up appears and I can clearly see my SKY Q/HDMI 1 in the top left grid position (button "1")!!!
      If I then switch via the Home button to HDMI1 and remove HDMI1 from Quick Access (via the  EDIT QUICK ACCESS pop up), I can then re-add it by holding down 1 or from within the pop-up. Now, if I go into Netflix and then hold down 1, my TV does (correctly) switch to HDMI1. Hurrah! If however I turn my TV off and back on, then go to Netflix, then hold down "1", I am back to square one with the question "Do you want to add Netwflix to [Quick Access 1]?"......Grrrr!!!
      I have tried switching the TV off at the wall, leaving for 10 seconds and repowering, which doesn't fix the problem (I don't believe WebOS reboots when you do this). LG appear to have made it a practical impossibility to reboot WebOS via anything other than a factory reset which I don't really want to do as it'll take me too long to get all my settings back to where I have them now. Some blogs suggest that the "User Licence agreement" setting can be changed which forces a reset from within the General tab but I don't see this on my TV (guessing that WebOS interface has changed).
      Anyone have any ideas?

      Company’s Eye-Catching Solutions Showcase Next-Level Imagery as Well as
      Added Convenience That Makes People’s Day-to-day Business Run Smoothly

      SEOUL, May 10, 2022 — LG Electronics (LG) is showcasing its ground-breaking information display technology at Integrated Systems Europe (ISE) 2022, Barcelona, as anticipation grows after its two-year hiatus. At this year’s ISE, LG is promoting its Move Daily Life Forward theme which builds on the company’s Innovation for a Better Life slogan. Ranging from Transparent OLED Signage, Micro LED to full lineups of LED signage products, LG will be showcasing its latest business offerings which combine digital signage solutions with useful application tools to elevate post-pandemic communications and move us a step closer to life without limits.
      With people spending more time at home, activities typically undertaken outside are now taking place in the comfort of home. Consumers are now going online to work (WFH), take classes, attend doctor appointments and carry out hobbies at home. In line with this trend, LG is showcasing LG MAGNIT and LG One:Quick Flex which leverage the company’s commercial display expertise to create next-gen home displays.
      LG MAGNIT, which has already infiltrated several commercial areas since its 2020 debut, is now setting its sights on redefining the premium home cinema by providing a next-level viewing experience, aesthetically-pleasing design and gigantic 136-inch 4K UHD (3,840 x 2,160) screen. The jaw-dropping picture quality created by its several million self-emissive LED pixels lets people enjoy their favorite movies, TV shows, sports events and artwork in privacy at home. And to make watching content easier and more enjoyable, several popular streaming apps are accessible via LG’s webOS 6.0 smart TV platform. Additionally, when paired with Bang & Olufsen’s flagship Beolab 90 home speaker, LG MAGNIT delivers an even more immersive home cinema experience.
      The One:Quick Flex is another innovative solution transforming home entertainment. The all-in-one display combines a built-in microphone, camera and speakers with a 43-inch 4K UHD (3,840 x 2,160) screen and optional movable stand. With its simple touch-based setup and user-friendly Windows OS, it is not only suitable for WFH, but for distance learning, video conferencing, remote training and entertainment as well. In addition, the larger 55-inch One:Quick Works, which combines built-in touch capabilities with intuitive video conferencing tools, is popular in educational and corporate environments, since its easy UX and added convenience let multiple users instantly connect and dive right into work or lesson plans.
      On the other end of the spectrum, high-end executive offices are placing Transparent OLED on glass walls to create bright and futuristic imaging and useful meeting tools. Transparent OLED is also being utilized in the transportation sector as advertising or information displays on station windows. It has even made its way into museums, greeting visitors at the door and overlaying objects with context for a more extraordinary experience. Transparent OLED Touch has also gained popularity as interactive displays.
      The Technology and Engineering Award-winning 65-inch UltraFine Display OLED Pro was built with studio professionals in mind. It supports pro-grade interfaces, such as SDI and SFP, and can render the source’s original, high-quality resolution without scaling down. What’s more, for colorists spending countless hours behind a screen, the UltraFine Display OLED Pro meets Eyesafe Standards and helps protect their eyes from blue light. LG UltraFine OLED Pro can be used in post-production companies as well as OTT companies when screening.
      LG is also exhibiting several innovations centered around mission critical environments. Fine-pitch LED’s high definition and bezel-less design displays every fine detail clearly, while the bezel-less 54-inch LED Bloc allows customers to use it like a 55-inch LCD video wall display with easy installation – it even fits the brackets of existing LCD video wall models.* These features have made them useful in corporate control rooms, auditoriums and virtual classrooms.
      In retail, LG’s Content Management Solution, SuperSign QSR, delivers customers a dynamic menu board while behind the scenes it streamlines the kitchen display system and integrates with the PoS system. Another featured product for outdoor customer interactions is the 21.5-inch high brightness touch display. Whether it’s at a drive-thru kiosk, gas pump or EV charger, this durable signage is useful as it stands up to harsh weather conditions and dust with a brightness that makes information easy to read.
      Amidst all the cross-sector synergy, LG is also presenting cloud solutions specifically designed for specific industries or use cases. For example, Pro:Centric Cloud has been engineered to transform hospitality management by taking Pro:Centric, LG’s flexible and intuitive content management system for hospitality, and expanding it across multiple properties via cloud-based architecture. Now, hotels can offer personalized services, maintain consistent imaging and collect behavioral data across multiple branches, all centralized in one place.
      “At this year’s ISE, we are excited to demonstrate the life-enhancing solutions that have been developed to change people’s lives for the better. Our sharp and seamless imagery stands out, especially in a crowded setting like this, and what’s more our vertical solutions are creating new possibilities,” said Paik Ki-mun, senior vice president and head of the Information Display business unit of LG Electronics Business Solutions Company. “We’re finding new ways to make it easier to make a positive impact, no matter the field.”
      These revolutionary business solutions will be on display in Hall 3 of Fira Barcelona’s Gran Via from May 10-13. For those unable to attend, LG has a dedicated ISE page at which includes videos of the zones and content to be added live during the event.
