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:

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.

      We have a 65UM7300AUE with software version 05.40.10. We have a Google TV dongle plugged into the HDMI 1 port and that is the input we use most of the time. Until recently every time we would turn the TV on it would default to HDMI 1 and the Google TV home screen would be the first thing we’d see. Life was good. Several weeks ago that changed and now the LG OS (I assume) home screen is the first thing we see. Then we have to use the LG remote to select HDMI 1 each time. We never used to have to do this or use the LG remote at all. Kind of annoying. We think we have HDMI 1 chosen as our default input but it doesn’t seem to matter. Any ideas on how we get things back to the way they used to be with the TV defaulting to HDMI 1 automatically?

      I can't find the Spotify app on the LG Content Store. When I search it, there is no result. Anyone can help me to get Spotify on LG Smart TV? I tried to use DRmare Software to download Spotify songs to USB flash drive and play them on my LG Smart TV offline for free. But I prefer to use it via the Spotify app directly.

      hi all,
      for a couple of years now, I've enjoyed AirPlay between my mid-2012 MacBook Pro and my LG Smart TV. But last week, I had to do a Migriation Asst./Time Machine re-install of the system drive on my MacBook Pro/Mojave. Result is that I can no longer get a connection with my LG TV. Two things:
      When attempting to AirPlay connect, I now get a Mac window asking for a PIN code. Then , the LG goes black and gives me a 4-digit AirPlay code, I enter it in to the Mac, but it reports, "could not connect to LG TV" etc. 2. I've put an AirPlay icon in the menu bar, but when I click on it, I see a greyed-out "AirPlay:" that constantly switches back and forth between "AirPlay: Looking for TV..." and "AirPlay: Off"
      All help/thoughts appreciated!
