3. Зайти в свой аккаунт на телевизоре

4. Вставить флешку в порт для приложений (обычно верхний)

5. Зайти в "My Apps", там справа около полосы с объёмом памяти появится 2 иконки - TV и USB. Выбрать USB

6. Должна появится иконка приложения Plex. Открыть, выбрать IP компьютера на котором стоит Plex Media Server

How to inatsll app to LG TV:

Does anyone know how to configure transcoding? I download transcoding profile from http://plexforlg.nickbabenko.com/LG%20TV.xml.zip, put it to c:\Program Files (x86)\Plex\Plex Media Server\Resources\Profiles\ and it's not working.

Кто-нибудь знает как настроить транскодирование? Я скачал профиль отсюда http://plexforlg.nickbabenko.com/LG%20TV.xml.zip, записал его в c:\Program Files (x86)\Plex\Plex Media Server\Resources\Profiles\ Настроек как выбрать профиль я нигде не нашёл. Транскодирования как не было так и нет.

I was wondering why the resolution is set to 720p in the lgconfig.xml?   The TV native resolution is 1080p?  

xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="no" ?>

Does the scan network function not work?  It works for me every time I run it.   It should automatically find the Plex server.

I am using a standard remote. Is there another way? I can move off the IP address when on the first screen. 

My plex server is always on as I use it on other devices.

Maybe we can assign a key from the remote to initiate the Network scan for people that have the standard remote.   Sorry about that.  Did not realize you using a standard remote.

My tv can see the plex app on the USB drive but when i start the plex icon it says loading and nothing happends. It is like it is searching for the server but I am not able to fill in the ip adress because it just says loading...... What can be wrong?

Thanks, but that does not work.

I have tried everything, and it does not show up on the usb when using on my LG 50LA6205

Tried unzipping and using as is, I even tried using just the files in the WebContent folder... nothing!

I have had others work, but not this one.

This bug (bug relating to changing PMS address) was in version 0.1 and it was fixed in version 0.2. Try install last version 0.2.01 - maybe it will work correctly.

If you use the code snippet I wrote and posted on pg 1 of this thread, it enables arrow key control on the standard remote. You can navigate to the scan/save buttons. (Works for me on my 2011 TV at any rate).

I need a dummies guide as I am not sure what I am doing. Sorry.

I would appreciate if someone could.

Well, sorry to say but this thread is created by simon for testers. If you cannot manage some easy steps then please wait until the app will be more stable.

It involves opening the file index.html and pasting in the code I linked (after line 52). However if this is not something you're comfortable doing I'd wait until Simon creates another release (this issue is apparently fixed in the working codebase), I think that will happen soon. Particularly since there are other issues with the standard remote once you get the current app running.

Thanks you've been very helpful.  :)
