BBC IPlayer on Webos UN74006LB TV
By Nitin Chopra
After update of LG WebOS to 04.40.70, Amazon Prime Video app on my LG Smart TV stopped working. It started giving error :
Internet Connectivity Problem
There is an internet connection problem. Check the device's internet settings, data cables, or try to resetting your router. Also, turning your device off, and then back on might fix the problem. For further assistance, please contact Amazon customer service at www.amazon.com/videohelp
The internet/wifi connection is fine and all the other apps are working without any issue on the LG smart TV.
I have even tried uninstalling and reinstalling the Prime video app, but that didn't help.
Has anyone faced this issue ? Is there a solution available for this issue.
Thanks & Regards,
Why many content are not downloading and playing in various Apps. This is despite of fully paid Yearly subscriptions.By Avnish Saxena
There are many new movies and web series which are not playing.
Jehanabad: in SoniLiv, The Night Manager in Hotstar are couple of examples.
They are playing flawlessly in Laptop and Mobile, but not in LG TV backed by webOS.
I have removed and reinstalled both the Apps but no result.

At the start of every year, almost everybody in the tech world gathers in Las Vegas to show off their newest products, technologies and concepts at CES, the world’s biggest consumer electronics show. This year, participating companies were determined to demonstrate how their innovative products and solutions help solve some of Earth’s greatest challenges and change the lives of thousands, if not millions, for the better.
Inspired by its belief that the answer is always with the customer, LG showcased its most advanced customer-centered innovations that provide entirely new value and convenience to its customers. Here are the five tech keywords for 2023 which cover the areas of personalization, sustainability and virtual reality.
Me, Myself and I
With far more people inclined to seek a living space that fully matches their personality, leading consumer electronics companies are rethinking their product development approach in order to build appliances that not only possess excellent features, but also blend effortlessly into various home interiors.
With this new attitude also comes a greater demand for personalized viewing experiences, especially as people spend more time at home since the onset of the pandemic. That’s why every TV being released is now equipped with an operating system that employs all kinds of features that help individuals find their perfect show instantly with next to no effort on their part.
Future of Mobility
Major car makers are shifting their production to electric vehicles and joining top-tier tech software companies to reimagine what a car could and should do in the future. The growing importance of the in-vehicle experience is transforming the future of automobility.
LG’s Vehicle component Solutions Company is committed to enhancing the driving experience through its expertise and know-how of vehicle parts technologies, so that its customers can develop advanced car models that make the journey more entertaining, easier and, most importantly, safer.
Lifestyle Devices for Healthier Life
After living with the pandemic for so long, people are now more concerned with their health than ever before. Under these renewed circumstances, people desire lifestyle devices and solutions that can empower them to take control of their health care and wellbeing while lowering costs at home.
In line with this trend, lifestyle devices and solutions with digital health technologies will stand out for these growingly discerning customers, who are willing to pay more for products that seem to be made for their healthier lives.
For everyone who attended or followed this year’s CES, it was clear that sustainability was a major focus. More and more companies, regardless of size and industry, are ranking sustainability higher on their business agendas, which means more companies are inventing products and services with various eco-friendly and accessible features.
LG showcased the company’s ESG vision in an exclusive exhibit through the Better Life for All zone at CES 2023, introducing a comprehensive overview of LG’s sustainability efforts.
Be in It
With the metaverse still deemed to be the future for tech, especially in the gaming industry, more and more people want cutting-edge devices that can make images or sounds that appear far more lifelike than today.
Driven by growing expectations and demand for a greater sense of reality, more innovative products that help users feel fully immersed in the digital environment will be further thrust into the spotlight in 2023.

When it comes to interacting with a brand, 71 percent of customers expect personalization in products and services, while 76 percent get frustrated when they don’t find it, according to a recent
link hidden, please login to view. This applies to customer experiences on the road, with more drivers searching for mobility solutions that actively assess – and adapt to – their very own driving scenario. Thanks to intelligent camera sensors which retrieve and assess all kinds of roadside information, cars can now think for themselves, providing adjustments tailored to each driving situation without drivers having to do the tweaking themselves.
Camera sensors are image, distance and object-based sensors which provide the driver with important identifiable information about the vehicle’s surroundings. They are crucially different to standard cameras in that they not only capture images but also make active assessment of the information displayed in these images. With a variety of functions such as measuring vehicle distance to recognize imminent collisions and assessing when the driver veers out of lane, camera sensors play a fundamental role in safe driving and are pivotal for the customized, proactive mobility experience that today’s drivers demand.
Let’s take a closer look at how sensors are inventing new tailored customer experiences on the road.
Using Data to Transform Driving Experiences
Built-in camera sensors have shifted the paradigm of driving. In the past, the driver was entirely responsible for judging traffic and maneuvering the vehicle. But with camera sensors now acting as an extra pair of eyes, vehicles can take a lot of the work.
The core technology that makes autonomous driving possible is the Advanced Driving Assistance System (ADAS) and its cameras. Like the name suggests, these cameras detect traffic, signals, vehicle speeds, direction, pedestrians and all other important information located within the driving environment.
The customized information these sensors collect not only plays an instrumental role in detecting potential vehicle hazards and establishing a safe driving environment, but also unlocks a more pleasurable and convenient driving experience.
Today’s most advanced automobiles are fully equipped with recognition technology that lets them perform a multitude of tasks when given simple gestures by the driver. For instance, some cars unlock when it senses the owner is nearby, others adjust the seats once recognizing the person or open the sunroof with a wave of a hand – and some do it all. What’s more, if you enjoy nodding your head along to your favorite songs on the road, you can even register a unique hand gesture for cranking up the volume.
Beyond hand gestures, cars can recognize the identity of everyone on board through built-in interior cameras, which means it can adjust seats and temperatures specifically for that person automatically. While services may vary by manufacturer, these automatic, sensor-powered features are essential for shaping the tailored driving experiences we can claim with the latest vehicles.
Other than these tailor-made features to maximize the driver’s comfort, LG’s award-winning ADAS system and its top-notch camera sensors come with a variety of features to ensure the safest driving experience. With sensors making real-time assessments of the roadside situation and the ADAS system adapting accordingly, the driver no longer needs to worry about keeping eyes on the road at all times.
For an inexperienced or distracted driver, it’s quite easy to veer out of lane – which may potentially lead to various incidents, including striking other vehicles or roadside objects. In such situations, the camera sensor comes to aid by monitoring the car’s lane departure and transmitting the visual information to the ADAS system. The ADAS then gives the driver a warning to get back on track, or in the case of more advanced and autonomous systems, will gently lead the automobile back to the original lane.
The ADAS system and its built-in camera sensors play an important role in forward collision avoidance as well. For those times when the driver cannot immediately catch onto the sudden appearance of vehicle obstacles, camera sensors act as a handy second pair of eyes. For instance, when a pedestrian bounds across the road and the driver cannot react accordingly, camera sensors will capture the information so that the ADAS system can give out an emergency signal, or if necessary, set off the emergency brakes automatically.
With tailor-made features which adapt to every driver’s unique roadside experience, LG’s advanced camera sensors and the ADAS system will continue to deliver the utmost driving comfort as well as ensure the safest ride.
Looking to the future, the company is all-in on the development of innovative mobility technologies that make novel experiences even more convenient, enjoyable and unique to each individual driver.

I have two LG C2 tv's both running OS 03.21.30. Attempts to update the OS state that this is the current version as of 12/2022. Amazon Music won't open on either of them, the splash screen appears and that's it, for hours. It opens fine on other devices in the house, Sony TV, PC's, and droid phones. Other streaming apps work fine with no buffering or glitches.
The solutions offered online list instructions for clearing app caches using a series of menus that aren't even remotely close to the menus available on these TV's. I've checked every available menu and there's absolutely nothing offering the ability to clear app caches. App Manager offers exactly two options: Launch or Delete. Others insist that you need to clear the cache from within the app but of course the app won't open so that's a dead end. I did clear the browser cache but it had no effect this AMZN Music problem.
So far I've also:
Deleted and re-installed the app multiple times; Left the TV's unplugged 24+ hours; Full reboot of the router multiple times; Factory Reset of the TV's. If anyone has a solution that doesn't involve buying a fire stick I'm very interested - thanks
(edit) one of these tv's is five feet from the router. Distance isn't the issue.
