LG LA Models not supported Plex ?? :[

by shambiko / April 27, 2013 12:18 AM PDT

So I bought this new LG TV, LA640V TV, and was going to use plex on it.. But for some reason the "Media Link" client that "should" exist, dont.. and there is only smart share, which looks really bad and ugly compared to plex.

I've setup all the PMS on the computer, the iphone works.. but the TV just have no option, no downloadable apps, only smart share..
I am very dissapointed , its was my Favorite Media server that support ur tv's and now its gona .. i am sure that other ppl too ..

If the product claims to have this and does not, why keep it?

Or is this a case where the buyer didn't check?

From my experience the makers never fix such things. It didn't meet your needs so it should go back.

But no LG rep has even shown up here. My reply is as if we were talking in a store about the usual problems.

So far, if it is not in the product spec, they never add it. I think I know why folk think it may show up. They are used to PCs where feature are added with apps.
