I have been troubleshooting an issue for about a year now, where my Living Room TV & Basement Media Room TV, (both LG 65UH6030), display black screens when attempting to Direct Play sporting events. Today, I was trying to watch the X Games on ABC.
After getting the black screen on both TV's, seeing no errors in the logs, I tested all of the other TV's/Devices in the house. All of the samsung tv's & tablets played the channel fine, via Direct Play. If I reduce the stream rate down low enough that the LG TV's force the server to transcode, it works fine. Direct Play, it simply displays a black screen with no audio while the server dashboard reports the stream is playing. It appears whatever this issue is, it's isolated to LG TV's or the LG App. Any assistance is greatly appreciated.
