version 3.21.30 worst WebOS ever?


Recommended Posts

Does LG hire real software engineers with actual computer science degrees?  Or do they just piggyback on software engineers that build webOS for free?

My LG 77" OLED C2 is far from "smart" ... after a long online chat with LG tech support because my TV decided it would connect my Bose Q45 Bluetooth headphone then immediately disconnect.  After hours of removing the device in the Bluetooth list, pairing the Bose headphones again, still same problem.  Keep in mind my headphones were working fine 1 day ago.

So the end result was:

1.  Disable Quick Start (from settings)

2. Turn off TV

3. Disconnect the main power from source outlet

4. Hold down the power button under the little red light ... wait 30 seconds

5. Plug the TV back in and power on using the button under the red light.

6. Connect my Bose Q45 headphones

If this weren't a waste of 1-2 hours of time it would be comical.  I've had this problem 3 times since I bought the TV 2 months ago.  I've gone thru 3 WebOS updates and each one seems to get worse and worse.

If the software engineers at LG don't know what they're doing, then please STOP.  Just banging out garbage untested code so you get paid isn't good for LG.  This Bluetooth problem is well documented across the internet and LG is just making the problem worse.

Connect then immediate Disconnect of a Bluetooth device sounds exactly like the code didn't capture the devices UUID.  I don't know what approach the LG software engineers are using but if it's this method:

 or they might want to use Sweet Blue  .  Your software seems to be processing the same UUID twice (sounds like basic loop logic problem as you cycle found devices).  Did any of the LG development team actually test multiple Bluetooth devices?

Either way LG, hire some quality software engineers that know what they're doing or pay for a quality assurance group to unit test.  And yes, I'm a software engineer with over 35 years of experience.

      Hey!

      So the other day I started installing a new game on my Xbox, and turned off the TV, leaving the Xbox on. The next I was turning on the TV, and it's a black screen. Using the remote, I get a message saying that "Smart Services will soon be available", just before it reboots (shuts down and automatically turns on again). After that it's stuck in this loop until I remove the power cord.

      The things I've tried so far:
      Disconnect both HDM-ports and restart Disconnect power cord and re-enter while holding down the power button on the remote Holding down the power button on the remote for 4+ minutes Holding down the power button on the TV (beneath the logo) for 4+ minutes Disconnect power cord for >28 hours and reboot Removed batteries from remote control and reboot Inserted a USB-stick with latest firmware to the TV and rebooted Nothing of this has helped. Any more ideas?

      I output the sound from my LG 75UJ657A to external speakers through a bluetooth connection, but it doesn't automatically connect to the bluetooth device when I turn the TV on. Whenever I cycle the TV off and, then, back on, the TV asks if I want to connect to the bluetooth device, and I have to select "yes" with the remote. My smart phone automatically connects to all the bluetooth devices I've set it up with. When I start my car, my phone connects automatically to the car stereo/phone system, and it does the same with other bluetooth speakers I have. This is what I want my TV to do.
      How do I get my LG 75UJ657A to automatically connect to the bluetooth device I've set up with it?

      Hi All,
       
      i’ve got an OLED 55C1 with webOS 6.0 and a service remote in South America. 
       
      I’ve been able to find working area codes for almost all regions using the service remote based on previous posts and tables. 
       
      Of most use to me were:
      Brazil: 26895 (local DTV transmission settings) /22800 (BR/US DTV transmission settings)
      US: 1843 / 1793 / 22287
      UK/EU/Turkey: 3122
      AU Australia: 767
      JP Japan: 23439
      I’ve also found working codes for China (CN), Taiwan (TW), Hog Kong (HK), Philippines (PH), Australia, NZ & South Asia incl. India (AJ), certain African and Middle Eastern countries (JA or JA ME IL regions: note Israel is not an option even though IL appears in the code) , Canada (CA), Mexico (MX), Panama and Central America (PA), Ecuador (EC), Colombia (CO), Peru (PE), Chile (CL), and Argentina (AR).
      Notably absent were working codes for;
      Israel (IL)
      Korea (KR)
      Russia and CIS countries (RU CIS)
      Eastern Europe (ETC?)
      Does anyone know the working area option service codes for these countries?
      I am mostly interested in working IL and KR codes.
       
      thank you so much!
