    Isn't Medialink integrated on the 2013 models any more? This App used the be the pre-installed Plex client.

    Thanks for your answers.

    Do you mean that it's develepoded by plex, and now LG must approve it ?

    I try with a TV seller to install plex in the store. After plug the TV on internet, we doesn't found the application on the web ...

    Any more informations ?

    I'm lookinf for LG TV for PLEX and passive 3D.

    dont buy LG, see Firmware problem thread....

    if you get a working firmware, dont upgrade

  • maverick56maverick56 Posts: 19Members

    I would like on my new TV :

    - passive 3D

    - Plex

    It's why my choice is going to TG ...

    I look the 47LM760S, and it's seem great ...

  • leonsioleonsio Posts: 77Members

    i have 47LM760S and you can be happy if you have older firmware (3.XX) with firmware from 4.XX it is not possible to change audio tracks

    as a TV it is okay, but mediaplayer.... better is to use extended device like Rasplex.... oder any  other android tv stick...

  • maverick56maverick56 Posts: 19Members

    Tks for speeking about your experience leonsio.

    You are speeking about the TV firmware ? I think will make a correction about this probleme.

    I want a solution IN the TV, and not another equipement ! so plex is perfect.

    I have a LG 42LV3730 and the Medialink (Plex) client workS well enough for my wife to use it, it is an advantage being able to control it with the supplied remote but the client itself is rather basic and does have a few interface issues for me.

    You could also consider Sumsung TV with Media link app, it seems closer to the desktop versions and seems to be more actively developed although I don't have a Samsung TV so have not tried it myself.

    samsung is the other possible solution

    i wanted to have all in one solution, and replaced my macmini+LCD with the LG one, but now i'm thinking that it was not the best case

    the advantage of the build in solution, is that you can control all with one remote and in one device

    but the main task of the TV is to display a video stream, and the media player is only so good like the tv hardware AND software are

    the software for the TV itself is good, but the medialink app is terrible :( and you dont have any other solutions to replace it

    so a good tv and a good media player may be the better solution for you, take a look on MK 802 (android tv) and/or rasplex + pulse eight hdmi, to control all with one remote

    this devices can be plugged in in the tv (hdmi+usb) and you have no differences between build in solution and this addon

    I'm going to go against the grain here. I honestly don't think Medialink (the built in Plex client to too bad) it certainly isn't as good as the Plex front end for PC and you have to make some compromises (like making sure that the soundtrack you want is the first or only soundtrack available) but everything else works OK as long as you have a decent network connection. Its much prettier  and easier to navigate than the DNLA solution.

    The only issues I have (as long as the soundtrack is set up right) are a) it defaults to full screen and stretches the aspect ratio until you change it back to original and b) it defaults to subtitles on. Both of these things are annoying but only a couple of button presses to fix.

    It should be better but if you are looking for a passive 3D TV then the LG is a fine unit, the Plex issues are not showstoppers

    LG Google TV 2013 series now available for purchase

     

    LG-Google-TV-2013-girl-sitting.jpg

     

     

    LG’s 2013 Google TVs are the best option for those looking to get an HDTV with Google TV integrated. The GA6400 and GA7900 series are slim, beautiful and powerful. We were promised a March release date at CES, but the month came and went without news of any launch. I do my usual Amazon search from time to time, though, and it seems they are now available!

    We are not sure when these became available. Amazon says the page has been there since March 1st, but that date is not always exact (it’s the date when it was created, not necessarily published). These TVs became available at some point and seem to have gone under the radar. No other sources have reported it and we never got word from LG.

    Regardless of how it all happened, it is great to see them available from Amazon. They are available in a variety of sizes ranging from 42 to 60 inches, so there is something for everyone here. Prices are also very flexible, with the cheapest version costing $899 and topping off at $1,899.

     

    You must remember these are really good TV’s. In a way, Google TV is an extra. I would consider one of these if I was looking for a good TV already. If you are happy with your current TV’s performance you may as well stick with a set-top box. These are some nice displays, though.

    The GA6400 features passive 3D, a 1080p LED panel and a 120 Hz refresh rate. The higher-end GA7900 offers the nearly-identical features, with the main difference being its 240 Hz refresh rate. The first comes in 42, 47, 50, 55 and 60-inch sizes, while the latter comes only in 47 and 55-inch sizes. Both come with 4 pairs of 3D glasses.
