ABC Iview has stopped working on my LG smart TVs.


Rex G

Question

It starts ok but when I select a program it just sits there with the 'wheel' turning. It works ok on my phone and ipad. Have tried updating tv operating system and iview app but they seem to be at the latest version. Anyone else having problems?

I'm also having issues wth playback stuttering and various error codes - codes this far 1003, 6007, 3916. This has been happening for approximately 10 days; no issues previously 

Rebooted modem,  which temporarily works but then problem re-presents.  Re-linked TV to app with no success on eliminating errors.

Same  for me. LG WebOS latest version. iView app latest version (uninstalled, reinstalled, relinked, logged in). I know iView is no longer supported on an older LG Smart TV but, in that case the app doesn't even start. This time it starts, refreshes catalogue, navigates, launches a show/channel then just doesn't stream.

Inability to access Australia's  ABC Iview is likely due to the need to log into iview with a valid email and password which became necessary a few weeks ago.

On your TV you should get a message saying go here:

link hidden, please login to view

and a 4 character code to link a signed in device to the TV.

Worked fine for me.

The problem started for me when iview forced me to sign about two weeks ago. I set up an account, linked to the tv, selected a show and the video wouldn't play. The wheel just kept spinning . It worked fine the day before when I didn't have to log in. I tried relinking the user, reinstalling iview, rebooted modem, checked tv updates but nothing worked.

Finally I got sick of not being able to watch anything so I reset the tv to factory default and reinstalled iview, which fixed the problem. Now I just have to hide all the of the shopping channels and install the other apps.

Thanks Drew

did a factory reset and worked for me too!  Still haven’t received an answer from LG (apart from an acknowledgment and request for software versions) - maybe they will see these posts

LG responded to me and are attributing the issue to Abciview and have referred the master to them.  I have always used Abciview whilst signed in so not sure if that is actually my issue. That being said, the other day and  for the first time in weeks, I could watch uninterrupted so let's see how it goes.

      Below are the details of my model and OS information.  With this version, there is no support for Sony LIV and voot app. It will be beneficial if such apps are also provided.

      On an LG CX 55, two minutes into episode 4 -- "The Tomb" -- of the series Moon Knight on Disney+ there is a scene with statuettes in niches each lit by an oil lamp. As the flames flicker, dark blotches jump around some of the niche walls.
      These are certainly unintended artifacts.
      Can someone confirm wether this is a CX (only) issue?

      MX player and jio cinema are commonly used Android apps which offers many free to watch movies. It would be great if that two added in the lg store. Hope it'll be added soon

      Hello,
      We are a company developing streaming apps for our customers. As-to enhance developer / tester / any other teams experience into LG universe, and be able to quickly test any environments we have (dev / staging / production), we'd like to be able to install apps that aren't removed after Developer Mode expires, or aren't visible/listed to the public store.
      We looked upon the idea to extend Developer Mode session with a Crontab with specific accounts for each TV, but some TVs are stopping the Developer Mode when being powered down, so it doesn't seem the most industrialised idea.
      Let me know what we can do to answer that issue !
      Thanks !

      I have a LG OLED C8 TV with a Soundbar and when connected to Optical the Volume Control is normal with a Percentage 0% to 100% but when connecting to HDMI ARC port like the Soundbar suggest to be connected it just show + or -,  you don't have anyway of knowing what the volume is set  to.    I have tried two Soundbars a LG LAS551H that was connected via Optical and when connected to HDMI ARC it also does not show Volume Control.  I have  got a new Sonos Beam Gen 2 that is now connected to HDMI ARC port and sounds great but if I connect it to Optical it's much lower in volume but has the Volume indicator.   Please advice.    
      I would like to suggest three enhancement request: 1. to show Volume Percentage on the HDMI ARC port.  2. Optical and HDMI ARC have the same output and 3. the Sonos be added to the Device list under Soundbars. 
      Thank you, 
      Jim Brown
