I have an LG Google Smart TV G2 or G3 55 inch which is 2 1/2 years old. I can't get the home screen to come up with my apps, it just says Please wait while we are loading. Anyone else have this issue and know how to fix it?  I can't even reset the TV as the settings button on the actual TV does nothing when I hit it.

Usually you would come out better buying a new one because buy the time you invest getting a screen replaced out of pocket you'll regret that decision.Hope you had an extended warranty.

Hi, I have the LG 50GA6400. Does anyone notice that YouTube casting stops working recently? Netflix casting is still available. I have reset the system but still can't get it back.

Probably due to the changes being made to Google TV's with the youtube update they all received.

It was talked about at https://plus.google.com/112723452515517293279/posts/B2zUf14HByr and has a lot of folks upset

Since the Google TV is pretty much gone and doesn't have the capabilities I thought it would when I bought it, I was considering purchasing a supplemental device. Maybe a roku stick? Any thoughts. I want to have HBO go.

+Tricia Kincaid​ may I suggest that you look into PlayOn. I have had this service for a long time. The price for a lifetime licence is about half a month's cable bill and they have a lot of content. You need to run software on your computer and it needs to be running in order to steam the content they offer but most people have a PC running all the time for local content anyway. This software also allows you to record the content as well. You can try it for 30 days no risk. I think you will love it.

Maybe one of you techies can answer my 2 questions.  Been using NeoTV Prime for about 5 weeks now.

first - got up this morning and couldn't access live TV (Xfinity X1) - The VT100 box WAS NOT powered on.  I started to use the HDMI pass through because my connection to the cable service would occasionally become unresponsive.  The TV showed a green color and the picture would be frozen.  Resetting everything would clear the problem for a week or so.  This morning (before my tea) the problem was back and I couldn't get my cable picture and it would not reset - even unplugging the cable box power didn't work.....  so I moved the VT 100 to its own HDMI input and plugged the cable service into its own input.   This means I can't use the live tv option on the VT100 and must manually switch the live input on the TV......an annoyance but will do it if I can get relatively trouble free use.  My question is: Is this a known problem?  Maybe to do with handshaking or such?

Second question is: When I stream Netflix, sometimes the show is interrupted with a "loading" message......sometimes two or three times in a one hour show.  I know there is about 2 G of memory on the VT100 and I am using high speed internet - about 58M connection.  Is this normal?

Some boxes have problems with google tv boxes - Not sure if yours is one of them but it does sound like it or it's the hdmi cord.

As for the netflix problem you could probably solve that problem with a wired connection if your using wireless.

Some boxes tend to broadcast and receive wifi to send information back and forth to your cable provider.

Some people have had wifi problems with youtube buffering and other slowdowns from the cable boxes that do this until they move the google tv box away from the cable box when using wifi.  

Not sure if that is your problem but you could try it if your google tv box is sitting right on top or near your cable box.

My Sony Google TV NGX I believe stopped working the other day: Process Servicer not Responding followed by a Application Server Not Responding.  

I have tried the Control Alt Delete will not bring up anything.  

I got into the a screen like this one by unplugging and holding the power button on the TV, and did #1 then #2 and then a system update still does the same loop as before.

I also need to reconnect my keypad each time

I am unable to watch HBO NOW on my Google TV, it specifies that the flash player needs a newer version, when I try to download it, Google Chrome says that ADOBE Flash player is up to date. 
How can I remedy this?

If you want HBO on your version 3 Google TV PlayOn is a very good option as +Thomas Ally​ pointed out. The software also includes a DVR and works really well. I use it for Hulu and amazon all of the time. For Hulu and channels with commercials it also provides a way to skip the ads.

Let me know if you can root the cube, I have had NO luck with it. I tried the cuberoot app, but it would not root. maybe the last update fixed the backdoor for rooting.

Yes.  I am able to get into the back end menu.  I found 2 different software updates on other forums as well and tried them via USB, but neither worked.  Any other ideas?  I am about to take it into a repair shop.  I think it is worth saving.

Anyone figured out as yet how to do HbbTV on Google TV?

HbbTV isn't a content provider or service. It is an open set of protocols/specifications that the content industry would need to implement via an app or similar. HbbTV is an association so you might want to check to see if content providers you have access to, might be ready to deliver something. Given that the Google TV platform is no longer supported it might not be available.

I really need help with this. LG customer support is a joke! So, I figured I would try this group before I go buy a new tv...
I have an LG47G2 that is stock and only has ES file explorer and a few other apps installed like chrome & pandora.
About 3 months ago the wifi quit working. Not totally, I can go in & turn on wifi and it begins to search but ends up saying error. Now, 1 out of 30 times I would say it does pull up the list of available wireless networks but then disconnects either before I can click or immediately after. Ethernet was working fine up until the last 45 days or so now it won't connect either. I have rebooted the tv and tried everything from wifi hotspot on my iPhone to teathering my device, rebooted my modem... Everything I can think of... I have read that others have cleaned their cache & davlik but I don't know how to do that without having internet access to the device.. (Maybe a USB or something?) idk.....

Please help me figure this out, it's out of warranty & if I can't figure it out here I will just put it in my daughters room & go get something else...

I really do like this tv, don't get me wrong. But it's been more of a headache than I want to deal with... And please do not reply with it may be an ISP problem. That's what LG said the first time. I have been down that road already & have switched from ATT to Xfinity in the last two months with the same problem.

I will be forever grateful to whoever can help me figure this out... Specs are below:

Model: 47G2-UG
Software: 03.06.04
Android: 4.2.2
Kernel: 3.4.5
