Based on my own experience, I think before the LG tv will "recognize" the DVD player, the DVD player has to be hdmi-cec enabled. HDMI-CEC is the communications protocol that allows components to communicate and control each other via hdmi connections (LG calls it SIMPLINK). In my case the Blu Ray player can be recognized by the tv when hdmi-cec is turned on but becomes "invisible" when turned off. So your DVD player has to have hdmi-cec capability, the DVD player has to be set to enable hdmi-cec, SIMPLINK has to be turned on on the LG tv, and the DVD player has to be connected to the tv via an hdmi cable. 
 

if any of these requirements are not met, including connecting the DVD player to the tv's USB port, then the tv can’t "see" it or control it. 
 

Having said that, you should still be able to use the DVD player by manually selecting the input on the tv to which the DVD player is connected—whether that be an hdmi or USB port—and then controlling the player with its own remote. 
 

Hope this helps.

      Hi to all! 
      I'm really new into this and have a problem. My 2018 LG 55UJ635V-ZF has only webOS 3 (latest; ethernet-automatic download) an i can't use airplay or miracast. The apps i found in the store for mirroring are only pay2use to use this needed feature for me.
      On the LG Homepage i can't find an upgrade for my TV an maybe is my tv really to old for upgrades or am i wrong?
      Maybe someone can help me out or bring some light for me in this.
      I also found the suggestions on this site for the firmware 4.70.70 (for the UJ's), but i can't download....error.
      sorry for my bad english 🙂
      thx for your help, quartex.

      Good evening all,
      Via WebOS, i have tried to download an .avi file but i got a message similar to "Downloading file is not supported" from the browser.
      I would like to find a way (via another app, via an external device or whatever) to download a media file into my TV or USB drive plugged-in. Then, I would like the TV to play that downloaded file.
      Any idea how to do this ?
       
      In other words, today, what I do:
      - download a media file from the web with my computer (700mo)
      - copy the media into an USB drive
      - unplug the usb drive from my computer
      - plug the usb drive into my TV
      - play the media to watch it with my TV
       
      I would like to avoid using my computer to watch my downloaded media on my TV.
       
      Thanks,
      Manbboy
      My TV : OLED65C2

      Greetings Touchpad users! The webOS Nation Forums went down this month -- unceremoniously redirected to some crappy review site, despite the community's pleas to let us save or preserve it in some fashion. As a result, we're looking here (and other places) for some kind of community forum!
      For those who visit here, I wanted to let you know that despite all recent set-backs, the legacy webOS community is alive and well, still using our Touchpads, Pres, Pixis and Veers in 2023!
      Resources to get online, apps to try out, and lots of other things to do can be found at webosarchive.org
      We've also got a Discord server going -- it even connects to webOS Devices, through a modern app called SimpleChat. Come join us at docs.webosarchive.org/community

      CBS Catchup, Discovery+, POP player, and UKTV Play always need updating. Even seconds after you just updated them. It started doing this a few days ago.
      Who can I contact to get this fixed?
      Since the "apps need updating" notification now always appears when I switch the TV on, I now have no way of telling if anything really does need updating other than going into the LG content store, clicking Apps, clicking My Apps, and visually checking.
      ☹️
