@Ken Gendron It is well known that LG (and other manufacturers) rarely make updates to the in-built browsers in older TV models.  The problem is that they cannot update them to cover modern technology, when that technology has FAR surpassed the fixed harware in the TV (chip-sets, memory, CPU power etc), especially in an item that is over 5 years old.

What functions or web-sites do you need to use on the TV, that you cannot use properly with a Laptop or PC, or iPAD?

Well that helped me quite a bit, so what should I do? Throw it in the Trash? 😆 Lol. I grew up in the 60s Tin foil on the rabbit ears and pliers on top of the set. TVs had to last a minimum 10 yrs.

Ya know I don't even own a desktop or laptop. Because About 5 yrs ago I bought a higher.  end Motorola E5 play. Cost me almost $500. I actually fell so in love with it. One day was cleaning said what do I need these "Old Dinosaurs" for?

So I threw them in the trash. Was before I learned Android and Laptops/Desktops are NOT comparable. Lol 😂 which is why I'm so angry with my TV cause now can't use the Browser to full capacity. Am gonna have to "Bite that Bullet" sooner or later. But my cellphone is almost a Dinosaur also. But it is REALLY lightning Fast. So here's a trivia Question for you.. What were the pliers on top of the TV set used for?????

Anyone out there know???

Although I appreciate the timely response.

Thank you

      Subtitles aren't appearing for certain shows(eg. Big Bang theory).NO option to change audio language,video quality. Certain shows are like watching snapshots at 10s interval(check Homeland). Cricket matches are having slow frames per second although i have good bandwidth and fps on my tv(LG UJ652T).  NO VIP option also.

      Hi everyone,
       
      I just bought a new LG television for a lobby in the company.
      It's a 55" LG Smart TV with WebOS.
       
      This tv is to show the narrowcasting system. But after a few hours the tv gets in to something like a screensaver.
      The narrowcasting is playing with the webbrowser from the installed apps.
       
      Does anyone knows how to get the screensaver off?
       
      Thankyou very much:)

      Hi,
      the WebOS specs stated that HLS is supported but didn't mention CMAF (or fragmented MP4) support.
      Therefore my question if CMAF(HLS)-Encodings are supported?
      Regards
      Riva

      Hi, I have a web app running on a webos 2018 TV. It is enhanced with aria-labels and such so that a screen reader should synthesize speech from the focused elements. I have turned on voice assistance of course. On another well known platform I have speech, but on this system it is silent. I know I can make it speak using webos API, but for now I'm looking for this screen reader approach. Is there anything I can do to enable it?

      My TV LG 43LX761H model goes blank screen with screensaver after 1 hour while it is on web browser. 
      Anyone have any solution for this? I tried to update firmware but the software is not available in any of the LG TV Support Sites.
      Thank you.
