@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.

      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...

      I often feel the need to turn off my TV's screen after I select a playlist and start playing. Can we have this option in the Spotify app. We do have this option in the inbuilt music player where we can turn off the display while the music plays in the background and we can turn the display back on by pressing volume up button on the remote. Felt that this option could be added to Spotify app as well.
      Thanks

      OK. I have a 2018 LG Smart TV model OLED65C8PUA.   The TV  'magically' recognizes and (badly) displays/ plays the 2gb of photos, videos and audio residing on my Western Digital 4TB My Passport  external hard drive I have. The problem is the TV is the ONLY device that WILL RECONIZE THE DRV! 8 diffirent computers running from Vista to Win 10 have given me 'DRV (x) is not accessable'. At one time the drv was password protected and it worked fine. The exact password was lost so I tried a number of variations and was able to finally unlock the drv and remove the password  using WD Utilities. It worked for a bit and I was able to copy out a few files using a Surface Pro/ Windows 10  but it stopped and now with that Surface Pro and the other windows machines  I get `D is not accessible. The parameter is incorrect'.  I even put it on a Samsung smart TV - none will read the drv, ONLY THE LG!  The LG also displays the DRV'S volume label and  content filenames as well. 
      I want to copy these files before the drive fails as the catch here is the LG seems to produce one or two "unrecognized files' every time I use it and some of these videos are one-of family heirlooms! I want to avoid another $300 data recovery bill if possible. And if the LG can read it one would think there is a way forward.
      Any suggestions will be most appreciated!

      Since this update the Apple TV 4K can no longer connect to Dolby via HDMI.  Immediately prior to this update - it worked.
      Now, if you attempot to connect and set it to Dolby - the screen flashes the Apple TV screen on and off - it can't stabilze.
      This happened immdeiately after the update.  
      Can I revert back to the prior software?  Or, can you send me a version that does not have this issue.
