@Janusz Łaski Ensure that your Windows 10 device is at least at OS version 20H1, or better still 20H2. They have improved the casting/projecting software, to make it more reliable.

Thanks for reply. Actually, I'm on 20H2. I am convinced, it is LG WebOS (version 05.00.01) related as I have this issue on few laptops including one with the newest insider win10 version (21XX).

Is it work for you as it should? What is your firmware version?

@Janusz Łaski I have an older LG, and also a Foxtel box (soon to get a Fetch box to replace it), so have rarely needed to connect my Laptop. Have done the clunky connecting by HDMI cable before, as my laptop has an HDMI port (for missed episodes not on any catchup services).

I think the latest C9 firmware is now 05.00.03 (they might not document all fixes in the Release Notes) :

[05.00.03]
1. Launcher visibility improvement
2. Launcher exposure when TV is turned on

See here, or search LG site with your actual model number:

Download that to USB stick and install it manually. If that does not fix your issue, you might have to get a "Miracast dongle"! for your TV, if you have a spare HDMI port to use. They are from $11, $40 at Jaycar, $80 for the official Microsoft one.

@Janusz Łaski Ensure that your laptop WiFi is on the same frequency band as the TV (i.e. if the TV is using the 2.4GHz band SSID, connect the laptop to the same SSID, likewise with the 5.0GHz band SSID). Some routers combine the 2 bands under ONE SSID, that makes it difficult.  If you can log into our router, and split the 2 into 2 seperate SSID names, that might help if that is the case.

Also, I heard that having the TV on a LAN cable, and other devices (e.g. Laptop) on WiFi, gives some routers an issue, in that they do not always pass all the required brodacast or negotiation (initialization) packets between WiFi and LAN. This definately affects Apple AirPlay, and maybe AirPlay2 as well, dpenending on your router model, and its security settings, and may well affect casting, screen mirroring, and certain player types and complex sharing apps.

      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.

      Hi,
      My problem if finding out how to pop iup a small (DVE) window somewhere over the main window.
        For example.   When HDMI-1 is selected, I want to display HDMI-2 in a small window somewhere on top of the original (HDMI-1) screen.
      is anyone able to tell me if the SDK support this function?   I would ideally like to control it via a Rasberry Pi.
      Thanks in advance

      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.”
