Other News and Firmware/Software Updates (later first)
  • 05.30.60 Update for USA 2016 LG OLED TVs 55/65B6P, 55/65C6P and 55/65E6P
    LG US Download pages, 05.30.60 update dated 5/7/2019 (B6), and 5/2/2019 (C6/E6),.
    (Change info from page's "Reference" link, which has other (LCD) models listed also.)
    - Security Update. (WebOS version 3.3.4-3714.)
    (Maybe it's Bluetooth related, as it also updates the OEM LG Remote Control.
    After some usage, you'll see a "updating remote" message onscreen.
    Also wonder if this update blocks the 'unofficial' backflashing method used in the past.

    FYI: Downloaded file was named "software". (Previous update downloads were named (version number).zip. Added .zip extension to filename and it unzipped as a usual ".epk" update. (Unzipped file goes in an "LG_DTV" folder on a USB Flash Drive.)

    G6 Update: A v05.30.55 'Security Update' for 2016 G6 model was posted May 15th.
    (The C6/E6 use same SOC (same firmware), the G6 SOC is different, as is the B6.
    This is why firmware updates are different files for the B6, C6/E6, and G6.)

  • Chrome 74.0.3729.131 stable channel update (includes 2 security fixes)

  • 04.10.55 Update for USA 2018 LG OLED TVs C8PUA, E8PUA, W8PUA
    (LG US Download pages, 04.10.55 update dated 4/27/2019.)
    Change info from page's "Reference" link:
    - Improve no audio issue when changing sound out from ARC to TV Speaker in QSM Mode On.
    - To improve contour noise. (MPEG Noise reduction contour control issue w/previous update.)
    (Some hoped it would improve near-black gamma after previous 04.10.31 update.)

  • 04.10.65 Update for 2018 LG OLED TV USA B8PUA model.
    (LG US Download page, 04.10.65 update dated 4/27/2019.)
    Change info from page's "Reference" link (which includes other LCD TV models):
    - Improve no audio issue when changing sound out from ARC to TV Speaker in QSM Mode On.
    (Does not list macroblock noise fix that was in March 20th C8/E8/W8 update.)
