@marshall007 If you go to:

link hidden, please login to view

then click on the "reference"  link, you will see that the SAME firmware covers MANY different models, including the UN7300 and un7440 models.

The problem is that the different "country codes" assigned to the TV's in the country of sale, determing what  "apps" work or not, for that country/TV combination, and therefore what you can get from the country coded LG STORE..

so can I download software of another region and install on my tv using the usb installation method?

@marshall007 NO, it does not work like that. The firmware in the TV, plus the country code combination determines which LG STORE content is available for the country the TV is actually in. You can ONLY download apps from the LG STORE app itself on the TV itself, you cannot just cherry-pick any app you want from an external LG STORE site on a PC browser, and put it onto a USB for installing, that set-up just does not exist.

The USB stick method is ONLY for obtaining the latest firmware for specific TV models, where there may be delays in getting the OTA (Over-The-Air) updates for your TV model. LG does NOT publish APPS that way I am afraid.

what i meant to ask is if i can download the firmware for un7300 and install on un7440..since they are very similar....

@marshall007 I think you are misunderstanding what I have already posted.  You need to go to the link I posted, and then click on the red "Reference" link. This will shown that the un7300 series and the un7400 series USE THE SAME FIRMWARE, so what you are suggesting will make NO DIFFERENCE.

The country code that the TV is set to, will configure the LG STORE to work with, and show ONLY those apps that are licenced to work with your TV in that country of use. The apps "set" will get placed there and populated from a specific LG controlled server "space", depending on country of use.

      My new gallery series OLED TV died after less than two months. For weeks now, I have been calling LG support for help. The have created multiple repair tickets, but they have not been to get a repair technician out to fix the problem.
      LG keeps trying to outsource the repair to 3rd party service companies. Does anyone know how I can find a local tech that works for LG to come out and fix it?
      If not, what recourse do I have?
      Thank you.

      This bug appeared with new browser. 
       
      when you load a page, you could move the focus between HTML elements by arrow keys on remote. 
       
      But now, arrow keys doesnt fire any keypress events until you click the page first
       
      before , i could use the website with just arrows, now i first have to activate mouse pointer and click the page, then i can start using arrow keys

      Is it possible to access Live playback, i.e. pause, rewind live TV with a universal remote, not using the LG magic remote?
      I have an LG 65" OLED B8 and use a Logitech Harmony 650 remote  - can't use the magic remote as a universal remote as my sound runs through an AV receiver connected via the toslink input on the TV, not HDMI., so no Simplink/CEC. 
      Live playback is working fine (recording to hard drive ok) and I would swear that when I set up the Logitech remote it was able to pause and rewind live TV just using the Play/Pause/Rewind  buttons on the harmony remote no problem, but when I tried it recently it wouldn't work. Nothing in my set up has changed. Has something changed with webOS??
      I've check the Harmony setup is correct and if I bring up the live playback scroll bar with the magic remote, then the buttons on the Logitech work perfectly so I don't think it's a Logitech Harmony problem.
      The only thing I can't figure out is how to get the harmony remote to bring up the Live Playback display, without using the magic remote.  I also find that shaking the magic remote to get the pointer doesn't work very well, so I have to move the scroll wheel to get the pointer, which changes the channel, so I'd rather avoid it altogether (I also feel like I used to be able to bring up the magic remote pointer by clicking the scroll wheel, but that doesn't work any more either. Did I imagine it?)
      Any suggestions on a button function I can program on the Harmony to bring up the Live Playback display, or better yet restore the ability to just press Play/Pause/Rewind on the Harmony and it works without needing the Live Playback scroll bar to be displayed first?
      Apologies if I haven't explained my issue properly. i've never had a problem with my OLED before ( I love it!) so am a first time poster. any ideas?

      I have a 55UH650V Smart TV Which i'm lovin...  But I can't seem to get the live tv pause to work with a USB drive..   I bought a 64GB USB 3.0 drive which works for general program recording and playing music, picture files on the TV etc... But when I try to pause live tv it says it cant work with this drive choose another?
       
      Is there anywhere that specifically advises on USB spec for this function?
       
      Kinda think it should be in the manual but i cant find it...
