I would like to play MP4 video file from my NAS, is this possible from LG Smart TV? I tried on the TV and did not see how I could do this, I also did not see any App that could help me in this area.
My LG TV is connected to my home network so has direct access to my NAS.

I'm having problems with terrestrial TV broadcasts after installing the (Version 06.10.30) software package. The TV broadcasts that were saved are out of order and the search no longer runs as before. Suddenly the search bar jumps from 0% to 100% and no broadcasts are found. Neither radio nor TV. I have tried 3 DVBT2 antennas and two coax cables to see if that is the problem. But all of them behaved the same way on the TV, which is an LG 60SJ850V-ZA. I also tried a full TV reset but that didn't help. I also had the TV turned off for a longer period of time with no electricity, but it made no difference. The release date of the softer package is in December on the site, for me it appeared on the TV (OTA) around late January - early February. Should I expect a new patch in the near future or should I try a downgrade? Any other advice? Thanks in advance for your replies.
I'm currently buying a DVBT2 TV-BOX to watch the channels that are important to me, it's just a bit funny that I need this for such an "expensive" TV (for me). It is not a modern AI piece, but still...

How do I make the tv go to the Home screen when I power it up? Currently its going to hdmi 3 and says there is no signal. I do not use any ports on the tv. I am using the apps
Its a 86UQ8000AUB
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.
Hello to everyone,
I am new to the forum. I wanted to ask whether I am alone with this problem or it is common.
My set up: PC-DolbAtmos, LG-CX, SONOS ARC (eARC).
I've notice the audio connection between the PC and LG+ARC was unstable. Finally I noticed LG-CX sometimes forward (passthrough) the good Dolby Atmos signal and some other times it passes a signal which is WMA (not supported by the sonos device).
PC is set to always send "Atmos", when WMA is sent, simply changing "passthrough->PCM->Passthrough" in the LG audio menu solves the problem.
Why is know that LG-CX randomly passes the good signal at times and at other times doesn't ?
Would you have any tricks to help out ? maybe force audio to be transcoded by the TV (possible?) to be alway DD+ ?
Thanks a lot for any kind of help and suggestions.
My second LG SMART WEBIS TV has died in the past 7 years.
Same thing, Black Screen but Audio is great.
The first tv died 2 weeks after extended warranty expired, this past TV, yesterday, has done same thing but 6 months after Extended Warranty expired. My question is: Has anyone, here or that you know of, have had this happen? It makes me sick to my stomach. LG knows how many hours and minutes the TV is on and it seems to me that they have a switch that kills the TV when they think a new one should be bought.
Stupid me bought a second LG TV thinking the first was a fluke but now I am dead suspicious. I have Sony, Samsung and Sharp TV's well into their 8 to 10th years and they are all perfect. I'm mad as hell and want something from LG for this.
Please let me know if anyone else has had this problem. It's too expensive to fix and cheaper to buy new but it certainly will never be an LG.
