Connect Smart TV to your TV

Smart-TV

Modern Smart-TV on LG can be either built-in or external. Special set-top boxes are used to connect an external Smart-TV. Modern TV models do not require additional devices and are equipped with everything necessary already at the moment when they leave the assembly line.

The set-top box is connected using the cable that comes with it. The setting is made according to the instructions. It usually requires a wireless internet connection.

In this video, we will consider setting up Smart TV on LG:

Notebook

The easiest way to connect your laptop to your LG Smart TV is with an HDMI cable. It makes it possible to connect two devices directly, without resorting to any additional elements or the Internet. All that is needed is the appropriate wire.

This wire is connected to both devices. Often, both the laptop and the TV have HDMI connection holes. When the cable is inserted, on the TV through the menu, select the desired item. After that, in some cases, the laptop must be turned off, and then immediately turned on. The image should appear immediately. At the same time, its size and resolution on the TV can be controlled. In this case, the TV acts as a conventional additional monitor to the computer. As such, it is often used thanks to HDMI.

Loudspeakers

Many people are worried about how to connect speakers to an LG TV? At first glance, this is not very clear. In fact, there are two options for connecting modern speakers to Smart-TV:

  • wired;
  • via wireless internet.

For a wired connection, use USB. Most modern speakers boast USB ports that allow you to connect them to other devices. In addition, the speakers have standard audio jacks.

Wireless connection requires a Wi-Fi network. It works according to the same principle as connecting to a smartphone. It is worth noting that only certain speaker models are connected in this way.

the Internet

There are several ways to connect the Internet to your LG TV:

  • do it directly using a cable;
  • use wifi.

To connect the TV to the World Wide Web using the second method, its owner will need a router that is capable of supporting wireless WI-FI Internet. Next, you need to configure the TV. For this:

  • go to the menu and find the settings section;
  • in the latter, go to the “Network” subsection;
  • select the element “Network connection”;
  • select the connection settings and the list of networks in it;
  • choose the desired network and connect to it.

Smart-TV settings for a wired Internet connection are the same, except for the last item. a wired network is selected there.

You can also connect the Internet from Rostelecom or another operator to the TV using a LAN wire that runs from the router. It is inserted into the corresponding connector on the back of the TV.

Manual software update

Open www.LG.com and go to Support. Downloads: Software & Manuals.

In the search box, write your model.

Select the “Software Update” tab and download the firmware to your computer.

Follow these steps carefully:

  • Unzip (unzip) the contents of the downloaded file into the LG_DTV folder
  • Format the USB flash drive in the FAT32 file system
  • Write the folder with the firmware to the USB drive
  • Insert the USB stick into the USB port of the TV

The firmware must be written to the LG_DTV folder. After inserting the USB flash drive into the TV, the screen will display information: the old firmware will be prompted to update, for the new one. “there is no need to update”.

No need to remove the USB flash drive and turn off the TV until the firmware update is complete. It is highly desirable that there are no power outages during the update process. Therefore, it is recommended to use an uninterruptible power supply.

Updating the firmware of LG TVs

The firmware update is designed to get the latest software version. If you do not update the software, some functions may not work correctly.

Connecting LG Smart TV to the Internet via WI-FI

Depending on the LG Smart TV model, the TV may have a built-in wireless LAN module. If there is none, but there is support for wireless networks, buy a separate WI-FI adapter.

In our case, LG 32 LN570V is connected, wireless network support is optional. So we need an AN-WF100 adapter compatible with our model.

To connect the AN-WF100, you need to find a free USB port and insert an adapter into it. That’s it, LG Smart TV is ready for wireless connection. No additional settings are needed, the Wi-Fi module is automatically detected.

Connecting to a wireless Internet assumes that there is already a working Wi-Fi with access to the World Wide Web. If you do not have such an access point, then buy a router and configure it according to the parameters of your provider. In one of the previous articles, it was told how to choose a router for a house and an apartment.

For normal operation of Smart TV, an Internet speed of 4 Mbps is recommended.

So, on the remote, we press the SETTINGS button and go to the settings.

Open the “Network” tab, then “Network Connection”.

In the next window, click “Configure connection”.

If the TV is not connected via a LAN cable, wireless access points will be displayed. In the found list, select your Wi-Fi router.

The connected network will be displayed, click “Finish”.

Configuring the wireless network is complete, now let’s look at the wired connection.

We connect the TV to the Internet via a cable

We connect the TV and the router with a LAN cable.

It is not recommended to connect Smart TV directly to the provider’s cable. They use different types of connections and the Internet on the TV may not work.

Setting up a wired connection is similar to connecting via Wi-Fi, but you do not need to enter a password.

Press SETTINGS on the remote to open the LG Smart TV settings. Then go to the “Network”. “Network Connection” tab. In the window that opens, click “Configure connection” (clearly shown in the description about WI-FI).

The minus of the wired connection is the extra wires. But there will be no interruptions through the cable due to a possible unstable wireless signal.

Internet does not work in Smart TV: fixing network problems

Do not rush to call a specialist. You can fix many problems yourself.

When a check mark appears in front of the TV.

  • Check the connections of the TV, router and ISP cable (modem).
  • Turn off and on the above devices.
  • If you have a static IP please enter it directly.
  • In a wireless connection, check the WI-FI password.
  • Update the firmware.
  • Turn off the router and turn it on after 20 seconds.
  • Reset the settings of the router or modem and re-configure the network in them.
  • Restart the router by turning it off for 20 seconds.
  • Reset your router and modem to their original settings and reconfigure your Internet connection.
  • Make sure the MAC address is registered with your ISP.
  • Update your router firmware.

The router software update was described in the D-link DIR 300 router firmware update.

A successful connection to the network looks like this: there are checkmarks in front of all the icons.

Hi friends! Now, the topic of TVs with Smart TV function is very popular. It’s really cool and convenient, but many people have problems connecting these TVs to the Internet. I wrote in this article about the ways in which you can connect a TV to the World Wide Web, where I wrote that you need to do this.

READ  LG TV won't turn on reasons

In this article, I want to tell you more and show how to connect your TV to the Internet using Wi-Fi wireless technology. In this way, you can connect in the event that your TV has a Wi-Fi function, or you bought and connected an external Wi-Fi receiver (in the article, the link to which is above, I talked about this).

Nowadays, a lot of TVs are equipped with a built-in Wi-Fi receiver. It is very convenient, there is no need to lay any cables, etc.

Afterword

That’s it, everything is very simple and straightforward. If you have a different model, or even a different manufacturer, then I think that problems should not arise. And if there are any difficulties, then write in the Комментарии и мнения владельцев, we will sort it out together.

I connected the TV via TP-Link TL-WR841N (5 more devices were connected with it). My Internet speed is up to 15 MB / s, the real speed is 2 MB / s. I did not notice any problems with Smart TV. Videos from YouTube and other services show perfectly and without delays.

DLNA (Smart Share) setup on LG Smart TV. We watch movies and photos that are on the computer

I thought for a long time how to start this article, but then I realized that this was not an essay, but instruction Therefore, straight to the point!

In this article, I will show you how to set up DLNA technology (on LG TVs it is called Smart Share) and access movies, photos and music that are on your computer directly from the TV. This is a very useful feature. And if you have a TV that supports network connectivity and DLNA technology, then you definitely need to use this.

For example: you have a movie on your computer, or photos that you would like to view on TV. How to do it? Yes, you can, for example, connect a TV to a computer using an HDMI cable, but it will be just like a monitor, and there may not be a cable either.

You can also drop the movie onto a USB flash drive, connect it to the TV and start the movie. Yes, but here you need a flash drive, you need to copy the information. It is much easier to go from the TV to a folder on your computer and just start a movie from there, or watch photos.

Before proceeding with the setup, I want to briefly tell you what DLNA and Smart Share are.

DLNA (in your own words) is a technology that allows devices that are connected to the same network and support DLNA technology to exchange media content (video, photo, music).

Now, almost all devices support DLNA technology: computers, TVs, smartphones, game consoles, etc.

Smart Share is a proprietary application (technology) of LG. If I can say so, then this is a kind of shell for working with DLNA. Other TV manufacturers call these programs differently. Samsung has AllShare. SONY. VAIO Media Server.

For example: you can watch photos on your TV that are on your smartphone. I will write about this in one of the following articles. This article is strictly about setting up DLNA between a computer (laptop, no difference) and a TV. Let me remind you that the TV must be able to connect to the network.

We connect Smart TV to Wi-Fi

Unfortunately, I can only show you how to do this on an LG TV. The process itself, on other popular TVs such as Samsung, SONY, Philips, Toshiba, does not differ much.

Turn on your TV and open settings. There is a special button on the remote for this.

Go to the Network tab and select Network Connection.

Then we see a small instruction. Click the “Configure connection” button.

Select the desired wireless network from the list.

Note. If you need to set the parameters for connection yourself, click on the “Manual settings” button. This will be needed, for example, in order to connect to a network with a hidden SSID, specify a static IP, connect using WPS technology, etc.

Now we need to provide a password to connect to the wireless network.

If you entered the password correctly, and your network is working well, then you should see a message that the TV is connected to a wireless network. Just click the Finish button. If you have forgotten the password for your network, then read the article https://f1comp.ru/bezopasnost/kak-uznat-parol-ot-svoej-wi-fi-seti/.

If you are prompted to enter IP and DNS, then leave everything on “Automatic”. Also, it is possible that a network map will be built.

That’s it, you can use all the functions of Smart TV technology! If you turn on Smart TV mode, you will see an icon that indicates that the TV is connected to the Internet.

How to connect your TV to the Internet via cable

If your TV does not have Wi-Fi connectivity, you can connect it to the Internet using a network cable. In this case, you have 2 options, direct connection to a computer or connection via a router.

How to connect LG Smart TV to computer via WI-FI

DLNA (Smart Share) setup between PC and TV

We need (necessarily) that our TV and computer (I have a laptop) were connected to the same network. What does it mean? This means that both the TV and the computer must be connected to the same router.

It doesn’t matter which way they are connected. The TV can be connected both via Wi-Fi (read how to connect in this article https://f1comp.ru/televizory-Smart-TV/kak-podklyuchit-televizor-so-Smart-TV-k-internetu-po-wi-fi.na-primere-LG-32ln575u /) or with a cable. The computer is the same. For example, my TV and laptop are connected to the TL-WR841N router wirelessly.

Next, we need to configure the distribution of files from the laptop so that the TV can play videos from the necessary folders, or show photos. We just need to open the emu for this access.

You can even do this with the standard Windows Media Player. Despite the fact that this method has a small disadvantage, we will consider it anyway.

DLNA Setup Using Windows Media

Just start Windows Media Player (look for it in the Start menu), click on the Stream tab and check the boxes next to two items:

How to use a LG Smart TV

  • Allow remote control of the player
  • Automatically allow devices to play my media

It’s all. You can already on the TV go to the Smart Share menu (in the case of LG TV) and watch all the media files that are in the shared folders: Music, Videos and Pictures.

Add your movie folder to Windows Media Player

If you set up the server through Windows Media, the TV will only display the standard video, music and picture folders. And the content, respectively, will be reflected only from these folders. In order not to copy the necessary films and other files into these standard folders, we can add the folders we need to the library, and they appear on the TV. How to do this, I was prompted in the Комментарии и мнения владельцев.

Open Windows Media Player and click on the Organize button on the left. Hover your cursor over Manage Libraries and, depending on what media content you want to add, select Music Library, Video, or Gallery. For example, I want to add a folder with movies, so I choose Video.

In the new window, click on the Add button. Select the required movie folder on your computer (in my case), select it and click Add folder.

In the list, you will see all the added and standard folders. You can add more, or select the one you want and delete.

All movies, or other files that are in the folders that you added to the library, should appear on your TV in a DLNA server created by a standard player.

This method is very convenient, since it does not require the installation of special programs.

Almost every TV manufacturer has a proprietary computer program that allows you to configure access to files (I wrote about this at the beginning of the article). In the case of LG TVs, this program is called LG Smart Share for PC.

We need to download and install this program. You can download it from the official LG website (if you have another TV, then look for similar programs on the manufacturers’ websites). The program is located at the link https://www.LG.com/ru/support/Smart-share.

For some reason, from the official site, this program was loaded very slowly for me. Therefore, I downloaded it from another site. Here I post it on my website. download. Version 2.1.1309.1101 (possibly outdated). Better to download from the official site.

To install, simply run the setup.exe file, which is located in the archive, in the LG Smartshare PC SW DLNA folder. Installation is simple, so I’ll skip this process.

After starting the program, select one of the items: Movie, Photo, Music (for setting up the program, it doesn’t matter).

Immediately go to the settings, for this, in the upper right corner, click on the Settings button.

And in the first window, immediately set the switch to ON.

Go to the next tab My Shared Files. This is the most important point.

Here we need to add the folders that we want to allow sharing from the TV.

Just click on the button in the form of a folder (see screenshot below), and select the desired folders, the contents of which you want to view on the TV. Click Ok to confirm. Then click the Apply button. The process of adding a folder will begin. If there are a lot of files, then the process can take a long time. We wait.

After that, our folder will appear in the list of available.

This completes the Smart Share setup. If you want, then on the Settings tab of my device, you can also change the name of the device that will be displayed on the TV.

That’s it, the program window can be closed, it will now work quietly and be displayed on the notification panel. Also, after restarting the computer, the service will start automatically until you turn it off in the settings where you turned it on.

    How to install apps on LG Smart TV

    Immediately after installation, the application will appear in the general list of programs, and will also take its place in the “My Apps” section of the main menu, which can be accessed by pressing the corresponding Smart button on the remote control.

    Games are installed approximately as well. The only difference is. That for them there is a separate application “LG Game World”. There they are sorted by genre in the catalog.

    You can purchase an application or game not only from a TV, but also from any device with Internet access. However, they can only be installed on LG Smart TVs.

    It is worth noting. That some applications may not be available for certain regions. This is due to the specifics of the state policy in the field of information.

    Installation of applications is possible both on the internal memory of the TV and on external media. But they will only work while the media is connected to TV.

    Registration and authorization

    Official

    The following applications are rightly considered the most popular:

    • YouTube. The full version of the application for using the most famous hosting. There are all the possibilities for watching videos, commenting and rating.
    • Ivi.ru. Online cinema with different films and TV series. The regular version contains ads that you can get rid of when you subscribe.
    • Gismeteo. Meteorological application with the ability to watch the weather for several days in advance. Can function as a widget and constantly display relevant data on the TV screen.
    • SS IPTV. IPTV Player for LG Smart TV, which allows you to watch IP TV by paid subscription to playlists from servers.
    • 3D World. Impressive 3D movie experience on TV.

    From a flash drive

    Basic conditions for using a flash drive to install programs:

    • formatting the partition in FAT32 format;
    • the presence of the distribution kit of the desired application downloaded to the root of the drive from a third-party resource in the form of an installer.

    Now you need to insert the USB flash drive into the USB connector on the TV and wait a little. After a few moments, a new icon will appear on the screen, indicating the presence of an external resource. You need to click on it and the contents of the drive will open.

    The installer of the required application is selected from the programs on the card and starts. Usually, you need to confirm the actions several times, since installing from external resources always involves certain risks. And through warnings and agreements, the publisher of the webOS operating system disclaims responsibility for possible malfunctions.

    The installation will take some time. At the same time, you must not remove the drive from the TV or turn off the equipment, as such actions can lead to a failure of the installation or unstable operation of the entire system. After the process is complete, the corresponding icon will appear in the list of applications.

    Sometimes Smart TV does not see the connected USB flash drive. This could be due to a malfunction of the drive itself or the USB interface on the TV. However, the second option appears much less frequently. So it is recommended to check the port functionality using other connected equipment.

    On some models, there is only one USB socket (which will be occupied by another device and cannot be disconnected), or there may not be such interfaces at all. The solution to this problem will be the use of special adapters to connect a flash drive to another connector.

    How to connect internet to LG TV

    Internet connection is a prerequisite for using Smart TV features. Without it, the device will be like an ordinary TV, on which you can watch only terrestrial channels.

    To quickly set up Smart TV on your LG TV, it is advisable to use the connection at the fastest speed. Otherwise, various lags and freezes may occur during viewing. This is especially true for watching streaming video from the Internet without downloading.

    There are two ways to connect to the Internet:

    • via a cable connecting the LAN connector on the TV with the corresponding connector on the router (sometimes a straight cable from the provider can be used, but this is not encouraged);
    • via WI-FI to the router distributing the network (the speed will be reduced).

    Also, the connection using a USB-modem with a SIM-card of the mobile Internet is gaining popularity now. In some cases, it is possible to use the Internet from a smartphone using Wi-Fi interfaces (with the Wi-Fi Direct function).

    TV for LG Smart TV: All Internet Content on Your TV

    The appearance in the house of Smart TV from LG is becoming a rather important event, as it significantly expands the well-established understanding of the capabilities of the TV. Unlike ordinary “boxes”, such devices allow you to use all available content from the Internet and install various applications. However, it is recommended to understand in advance the procedure for setting up TV on LG Smart TV.

    How to tune channels on LG Smart TV

    The channels on LG Smart TVs can be digital or cable. The digital transmission method differs in that a decrypted signal is sent to the TV at once, which does not require a TV tuner. For cable TV, a tuner is required.

    The channel setup process for both cases is approximately the same. It consists in performing the following actions:

    • using the remote control, you need to go to the TV settings (most often this is the “Settings” button;
    • in the “Channels” section, select the “Autosearch” item;
    • now in the list of signal sources that appears, you must select those to which the cables or antennas are connected;
    • in the next window, you will need to enter information about the service provider, which can be found on the official website (in most cases, you just need to select the desired operator from the list of the most popular ones);
    • after selecting the operator and the type of channels, you must start the search by pressing the corresponding key;
    • usually the process takes a few minutes, the found channels will appear in the list of available.

    The system sorts the found channels on its own, and it is not always convenient for the user. But on most modern Smart TV models, you can manually arrange TV channels by assigning them the desired numbers.

    When setting up a satellite connection using Smart Maps, the process is not much different. After connecting the dish, you will also need to specify information about the operator and the transmitting device itself. In this case, when choosing a signal source, a tick must be put only in front of the “Satellite”.
