Hi I have an OLED A2 48” 4k, which doesn’t have an aerial but is connected to WiFi. All the streaming services are working fine, but my understanding (From Freeview website) is that the TV guide should be populated with a live Freeview TV schedule that , if you click on a live broadcast, opens it up in the relevant app. E.g. BBC, ITVX, 4 etc.
There are a couple of BBC IP channels showing, which play without opening the apps but nothing else.
I have the Freeview App on my phone which does exactly what I was expecting above.
Some tutorials explain how to do it.
We first need to root the TV with scripts such as RootMyTV, and then install dts_restore.
Both tools are free and available at github.
I'm not writing the links because I don't know if it's allowed in this forum and because I take no responsibility.
My question is:
Has anybody tried this process? Does it work?
The documentation says if you have any problem you can just factory reset the TV, but I don't dare to do it.
The Wi-Fi module in my LG TV, roughly 5 or six years old, (WebOS UJ6300) is apparently broken. I am looking for a solution cheaper and maybe more interesting than having the TV repaired. There are devices which will pick up Wi-Fi, convert it to ethernet, and deliver it to the male part of an ethernet port. In the past I have used such a device to provide Wi-Fi support to a desktop computer which did not have Wi-Fi support but did have an ethernet port. I forget the particulars, but it did work just fine. But a smart TV with Web 0S is not a desktop or laptop computer. My concern is how to provide the SSID and password to the device. My vague recollection is that such a device in a laptop or desktop computer can trigger a dialogue which requests the SSID and password. But will web OS provide such a dialogue? If I recall correctly, wired ethernet connections do not require SSIDs or passwords.
