Question

I bought a OLED55CXPUA and the ethernet was only getting 5Mbps using Fast test , and 18Mbps using Ookla test . I get 495 Mbps when connecting ethernet to PC ,so Spectrum said its not their router. I called LG support 3 times and couldn't solve issue , so I returned TV and bought a OLED55CXAUA at Costco. I get exactly the same ethernet speeds. I'm not very experienced with network issues , so I would appreciated any input. I did get an email from LGCareCenter saying "Regarding this one, we have received an update from our specialists. The maximum speed of an LG TV when wirelessly connected to a home network is 1.3 Gbps or 1300 Megabits per second. If 1.3Gbps is supplied via Cat 5 (hardline) speed test may not show that as actual speed available, but please do take note that the unit will only take what it needs to stream or surf the net. If you stream a movie and it buffers, please try to run a speed test using the URL of

. If speed shows say 5 Mbps, please check the router settings for Priority settings." Does this  sound accurate , I do get about 50Mbps over WIFI so why wouldn't  WIFI show the same speed results unless its only ethernet that only takes the speed needed for steaming. I contacted LG support again and they said a tech would have to come to diagnose and if its not a TV defect I would have to pay for service . The TV is only 10 days old.

@HankO Even if you router LAN connections, and any LAN Switches (to split single LAN cable to several hard wired boxes), are 1GB speed (i.e. 1000MBPS), the TV Ethernet chip-set will ONLY support up to 100Gbps, and even then you "lose" some bandwidth due to protocol loss (i.e. TCP/IP - Ethernet data packet dissassembly and re-assembling into a usable digital data stream).

I do not know of any LG TV's that support 1GB speed yet, not sure of any other makes/models.

Can you please confirm if you have the TV connected via WiFi or Ethernet LAN cable? 

If you are close enough to your router or AP (Access Point for WiFi), then good routers can supply that 1300Mbps you are after. It DOES depend on the channel your router is using, and the level of any interference from neighbours routers or AP's. If you have a modern laptop, that has 5GHz WiFi card in it (do NOT confuse that with phone 5G, that means Fifth Generation, NOT the 5GHz band!) a good place to start is to check the WiFi strength (signal quality)  near the TV.

I use this free software from Nirsoft. It wil show you your OWN WiFi network, the channel SSID for both the 2.4GHz and the faster 5GHz SSID (if they are not merged under one SSID, that makes it difficult).It also shows the signal quality, and OTHER nearby routers, and channels that THEY are using. For WiFi on the 2.4 I found channel 8 is often good, and channel 36 for the 5GHz, but channel 44 is also often good. 

Here is the link:

NOTE: this will give you a ZIP file to download, so place it into its own folder, double click on it, and let it extract to the same folder. You can then just double click on the .EXE file in there, if you have "show file types" ticked on your file explorer view tab.

By the way, if you are not sure about logging into your router (and it is one of these in the Spectrum page below),  click on the down arrow by your router make/model, log in and check yout WiFi details for the channels (often in WiFi advanced settings), and change the channel numbers to avoid interference from others in the area, if needed:

I'm using Ethernet , WIFI not reliable . I don't expect 495Mbps to TV but I only get 5Mbps with Fast speedtest and 18 with Ookla . Netflix says you need 25 Mbps for 4K streaming. I did see in post someone used a usb to ethernet adapter . I got one from Amazon and connected through it. Going through USB my speed increased to 15-25 Mbps with FAST and 50 Mbps with Ookla. When I check network settings it say both wired not connected , but it works with Netflix and other Apps . I could live with that , but I dont think I should have to use a $15 adapter to work around an ethernet connection on a brand new high end TV.  And I'm not sure if any other internet apps would be affected. Thanks for your reply , I appreciate any help.

      Across the world, hospitals and health care facilities have been put to the ultimate test, pushed to their absolute limits. To help ease the burden on the Polish health care system, LG supported the 29th Annual Grand Finale fundraiser hosted by the Great Orchestra of Christmas Charity (GOCC), the largest independent non-profit charity in Poland, to raise money that will be used to help care for the nation’s most vulnerable children.

      Since 1993, the GOCC has been supporting and promoting health care in Poland by purchasing state-of-the-art medical equipment for the nation’s hospitals and clinics, as well as establishing and running several medical and educational programs. The charity’s Grand Finale fundraiser on January 31 was packed to the brim with events, activities, concerts and sporting challenges that brought diverse communities together for non-stop fun and fund raising. By reaching out to regions with thriving Polish communities, the GOCC was also able to set up 79 international Collection Centres in locations such as Singapore, Bali, Mexico and as far away as a research station at the North Pole.

      LG kitted the Grand Finale TV studio out with 80 LG monitors, among them professional 4K LG UltraFine monitors with Ergo stands for use by studio volunteers during the grueling 27 hour long fundraiser that was televised nationally and streamed live on the Grand Finale website.

      To raise awareness and encourage more people to get involved, LG Poland also donated a smart LG Vivace washer dryer with Allergy Care to the Grand Finale’s online charity auction. Featuring steam to disinfect clothes and eliminate germs, LG Vivace proved to be a highly sought after product, attracting a host of bidders. To bring even more viewers and donations to the table, LG and partners promoted the GOCC 2021 event continuously on their social media channels.

      “With everything that has been going on and the social-distancing restrictions in place, this year we decided to focus on a digital fundraiser to introduce our kindhearted benefactors to donating online.” said GOCC spokesperson Olga Zawada. “Preliminary results totaled PLN 127,495,626 (USD 34.2 million), making it one of the highest preliminary amounts we’ve raised in our almost 30-year history, thanks in large part to online donations.” All proceeds from the auction were used to purchase potentially life-changing medical equipment for laryngology, otolaryngology and head diagnostics.

      In an interview at the studio, Jerzy Owsiak, Chairman of the Board of the GOCC, personally thanked LG Poland for its contribution to the Grand Finale and LG’s entire Poland team is proud to have been able to support this noble initiative that shares LG’s goals – to make lives better.

      The YouTube Originals documentary received its offline debut this week on LG’s massive high definition digital billboard in New York’s iconic Times Square. The feature-length documentary, which premiered on YouTube over the weekend, is directed by Academy Award winner Kevin Macdonald and executive produced by the prolific Ridley Scott.

      Life In A Day 2020 debuted on YouTube on February 6, when it also became available on the YouTube app on smart TVs including LG’s award-winning LG OLED TVs. The feature-length documentary is a collaboration between YouTube and LG Electronics and is composed entirely of selected contributions from people around the world who filmed their day on July 25, 2020.

      Ten years after the original Life In A Day, YouTube and the filmmakers asked people all over the world to record their lives to tell the story of a single day on Earth. The filmmakers received more than 300,000 submissions, nearly four times the number of submissions to the previous film, which includes thousands of hours of footage from 192 different countries, in more than 65 languages.

      Directed by Academy Award-winning director Kevin MacDonald (The Mauritanian, One Day in September, The Last King of Scotland), and executive produced by Ridley Scott (The Martian, Gladiator) and Kai Hsiung (Lords of Chaos), Life In A Day 2020 aims to showcase just how extraordinary life can be on an ordinary day.

      “We are proud to collaborate with YouTube to feature this incredible and moving documentary live in Times Square on our LG digital billboard,’ said Peggy Ang, head of marketing at LG USA. “We hope visitors to Times Square will take a moment in their own daily life on February 8 to watch a part of Life In A Day and then enjoy its full impact at home with their families on an LG OLED TV.”

      Hi Everyone,
       
      OK, so what does it take to have full Chromecast support in LG TVs (webOS)?
      a. Either builtin support.
      b. Via webOS app.
       
      The goal / use is simple as any other Chromecast device / TV: be able to say to "hey Google, play this video/music from service-X to LG-TV".
       
      Looking forward to good news and your thoughts.
       
      Thanks,
