Is it just me or is the plex app just unusable on webos.  When I try to select dvr items with the magic remote they just don’t play.  I am not sure if this is a plex issue or an lg webos issue.  Anyone know which it is?

Hi @Lgrump

I suppose it is going to be a Plex issue as they produce the app, I know users not just on LG but other platforms as well who have had issues .  If you are prepared to try something else then have a look at Emby,  I have been using it instead of Plex for about a year now and have found it stable and an excellent replacement for Plex.

What issues are you having. Plex server runs on in my Mac and works flawlessly with my webos tv... No issues whatsoever.... Even streaming large uhd / 8k media is perfect.

I would encourage you to read the Plex data base and fine tune your server.. It should work great!

Otherwise try to get lg to replace the remote.

The problem is in the plex client that is specific to lg on web os.  I think I already posted the exact version number on the plex forums.  Works fine on roku but the plex client version specific to lg prevents you from using the plex pass dvr function. Everything else works fine.   I smell a rat.

Are you recording to an external hard drive attached via usb to your tv? Mine works fine as long as the drive is fat32 forrmated

I am running the plex media server on ubuntu 22.04 and have an external drive formatted as ntfs where the media is stored.  I have a hd homerun quatro where I record digital hd unencrypted signals coming from local  stations via a hd antenna.  Its not a plex server issue.  Its a plex lg client issue.

Will the title of the remark is misleading "Plex is unusable". Plex send very usable with one function disabled or not working.

If it is a Plex issue, ask Plex to resolve it. If you are a Plex Pass user they will reply to you quickly.

It may be a localised DRM issue but mine works fine

      In the specifications of this LaserTV it is shown that WebOS 6.0 should be installed on this device.
      The latest Device Firmware Version is 3.01.02 and i am missing the RTL+ App (Germany) which should be available with WebOS 6.0 
      So any info when there will be a "real" WebOS 6.0 available on the Cinebeam HU915EQE?

      webOS updated, I think to 2023, on my C2 a couple of days ago. Since then the News option on the Sky News app no longer works, instead timing out. The Weather and Climate options still work, though.
      I have deleted and reloaded the Sky News app, but the problem remains.
      Does anybody have any suggestions of what I might try to get this working again, or is this something for LG, or Sky, to fix?

      Hey everyone, I've been using my LG WebOS TV for some time now, and there's a small but impactful change I'd love to see. Currently, when the TV is turned on without an HDMI input, it defaults to displaying a wallpaper. It's not aesthetically pleasing, it's a bit of an inconvenience for users like me who primarily use the TV's smart features.My suggestion is to include an option that allows the TV to boot directly into the Home screen, displaying all the available apps and streaming options right away. This would streamline the user experience, making it faster and easier to access the services we use most.Would love to hear the community's thoughts on this. Cheers!
