LG 55SJ8500 USA running 05.80.55
Just notified that software update 06.00.05
is available for my tv, presently running
Has anyone installed this update? How did it go?
I typically wait for 1 to 2 weeks to see if there is any negative feedback.

After updating on 05.60.15 i have popping sound on all three hdmi ports. I tried several different HDMI cables but it reappears when connected to the receiver. When I watch netflix or internet the sound is fine.
Is there a problem with the update or something is wrong with the TV? I repeat before the update the sound was great.

I have 42B670V-ZA tv bought in 2014. This model has different numbers/letters depending from the distribution area. Mine is for Poland.
Software version is 05.05.70,
WebOS version is 1.4.0-2532 afro-ashley. This model was made with the intention of upgrading to WebOS 2 and so it was manufactured. In late 2014, once the tv was still on market, European and US (with a different name), LG Korea has announced that this model would not have upgrade. Nevertheless I think it STILL IS a way to make it higher or at least faster, as it was on a very beginning. Now it coughs after using 45 mins on Netflix or 30 mins on WWW app when watching film online. When instslling new app, it shows such data:
Version of the app i.e. 1.1.1
Date of last update of the app i.e. 20.04.2015
Size of the app i.e. 105 KB
Rating i.e. "everything" (???)
Internal memory i.e. 850MB/973MB
And this INTERNAL MEMORY REMAINS THE SAME 850MB
Does anybody know, how to do this either using
service mode or
Installing some software from a memory card
or in any other way? The problem is that the tv has not enough memory to operate apps. I cannot release the memory without loosing my settings. I live in Warsaw, Poland, but I have additional apps like HULU and Amazon Prime US which enables me watching US content (I pay for them in USD).
Uninstalling other useless apps didnt work. Now I have only system apps and 3 more like Netflix, HULU and Amazon. I cannot even install anything more. LG support told me to return to factory settings which wipes all memory out. I dont want to return to WebOS 1.0. I just want my tv to work faster BACK AGAIN and maybe to use some other apps which cannot be installed due to insufficient space on card/disc and to install some apps that are compatible with WebOS 2. (Now they are not apperaing neither in Polish LG store nor in US store, once I change the region to US/CANADA/MEXICO.
Thanks in advance!!!
I wish LG would consider updating their Codecs list or at least give us a way of installing this codecs in our TV manually. i know my TV is capable of playing a lot of stuff but i'm always stuck with "not supported" for most of the media i have.
One of the most wished stuff i'd love to see is
Added support for H.264 10bit (still very popular and used a lot)
as well as Opus codecs (its a Free codec and its getting a lot use recently especially with H.265 MKV videos)
Like i said, please add this codecs and more or at least give us a way of doing it ourselves. i know there might be legal issues and some codecs are payed, so just let us install it ourselves instead.
