Screen share not installed


Paul777

Question

I have just purchased a brand new 65" LG Smart TV, It was to replace my old 50" LG Plasma which was about 15 years old and not a smart TV. I turned on the TV for first time set up. The old TV picked up all the digital stations perfectly. but the new TV was missing most of the channels and the ones I did get were breaking up, unwatchable so I retuned the aerial. This time it got even fewer channels and the ones I got said " no signal " so, no picture, no sound. I tried the old TV with the same aeriel cable and all channels ran perfectly. Put the same cable into new TV, retuned it AGAIN and got the same result, no working channels. I had advertised the old TV for sale. It is now sold so I ended up having to go out and buy a set top box just to watch TV after paying £699 for a brand new TV. Seriously not impressed.

  Problem number two. The reason I bought the TV is to stream my collection of movies from my Windows 10 desktop PC. Turns out my new TV that wont let me watch TV channels doesn't have screen share installed. MY PC and TV are connnected to the same wireless network. When I click on " connect to a wireless display "  my LG TV shows up as connected in "other devices " but as Screen Share is not installed on my TV I cannot stream content.  If I had an Apple device I can use Air Play but I cannot abide Apple.  TV Cast LG works with Android but my movies and music are on my Windows 10 PC. I dont even have the option to download Screen Share from LG's online appstore, it isnt available.The only option I can think of is to buy a Chromecast which means after spending £699  and having to go out and buy a set top box, I'm gonna be out even more money. I wasreally impressed with my old LG TV. I just wanna take a sledgehammer to this one but cant because I have already spent too much money on it. 

PS I also spent half aday trying to register the warranty online which your system wouldnt permit me to do but after several hours on the phone I finally maaged to do so. That was Friday 8th of May but when I logged onto my account today it told me I have no productts registered. YESI HAVE. I EVEN TOOK OUT THE EXTENDED WARRANTY !!! I will never spend another penny on an LG product and I will never recommend LG to anyone so long as I live. 

CAN SOMEONE PLEASE TELL ME HOW TO CAST FROM A WINDOWS 10 PC BEFORE MY HEAD EXPLODES, thank you.

      Hey there,  I have had a  OLED55B6P for ten months and I love it but

      I have a problem all a sudden, just today it starts to show a black screen with fire works every minutes if I don't press a button on the remote.

      I have no eco mode on, no power save modes on, TV firmwire is up to date, and tried turning off on and on the tv.

      anyone know how to fix?

      Hey everyone, I've been using my LG WebOS TV for some time now, and there's a small but impactful change I'd love to see. Currently, when the TV is turned on without an HDMI input, it defaults to displaying a wallpaper. It's not aesthetically pleasing, it's a bit of an inconvenience for users like me who primarily use the TV's smart features.My suggestion is to include an option that allows the TV to boot directly into the Home screen, displaying all the available apps and streaming options right away. This would streamline the user experience, making it faster and easier to access the services we use most.Would love to hear the community's thoughts on this. Cheers!

      I've seen an older thread on this topic but it doesn't look like anyone found a solution to disabling the screen saver, so I'll try a new one.
      On virtually all my LG TV's (I have three OLED's and two LCD), the screen saver interferes with my music app (like Plex, Spotify or Amazon Music). I mainly use Plex for playback of my music which is stored on a central server (NAS) and from the app loaded on a Fire TV stick or cube. After about 20-30 minutes, the album art and other related music information (lyrics, song title, duration, etc) all goes black. If I run Plex (or Spotify) directly on the LG TV via the LG Content store app, the screen saver with fireworks always comes on in about 2 minutes. 
      I've tried all the different methods to disable the screen saver function including turning off the Timers, Auto Power Off,  HDD Storage, etc. I also tried opening the hidden menus by pressing the mute button 5 times but that menu didn't have anything relevant. 
      Interesting is that the screen saver doesn't come on when using Spotify on a Fire TV stick or if I playback music through a USB device. But i don't use those methods often, mainly Plex to access my music server where I have about 500 CD's stored in ALAC format.
      Has anyone found a way to disable the screen saver function? I know the logic for having it (to prevent OLED burn in) but I'm not leaving the same image on for more than the song duration (about 3-5 minutes).  It's annoying to check the screen for the a music title or see who is on only to find a black screen looking back. Thanks for any help.
