If you must update from USB;
You're in the USA?
You unzipped it before copying it to USB?
I'd try the highest number (6) first and work my way backwards.
When I tried to download the manual as .pdf it said site was down for maintenance from 12:00 to 17:00 Korean time.
Don't see any review on the BH 7540TW but AV Forums has a review on the 4540, which got a 8/10 score.
Any thoughts ?
p/s: DiVX videos need an additional registration process right ? There's a DiVX setting in the menu which prompts for registration.
As for DivX, and from memory, I needed to download a registration file from DivX website, copy it to USB, and connect it to the TV to register the TV as a player. It was still hit and miss, some would work and then I'd get another error for an unregistered player. The original file would no longer work for registration, and I couldn't get newly downloaded registration files to work either. Again, that's if I remember correctly. I don't get that error using my PC media players.
I do remember that when downloading the latest (at the time, roughly a couple months ago) version of DivX Player to my computer it attempted to install Conduit, which at best is spyware and at worst is a virus - depending upon your opinion of malware. Have been boycotting DivX ever since. So user beware! You don't want that crap on your system.
I just installed the latest LG software update for Australia yesterday which was the 1st time it popped up as available, and through the TV's wireless connection v4.26.03. I see no difference in anything from v4.25.02. Everything was working fine before the update and still is. USA software may well be a different version altogether though.
my 55inch model support HULU, NETFLIX, YOUTUBE Chromcast function ! You do not need a chromecast to send the video to the TV. It can be sent directly to the TV. I am so happy for the new update recently, because the HULU works with the Chromecast function now. It is a super nice for Ipad now. I barely use my apple tv now. I can send hulu, netflix, youtube video to the tv directly from my ipad too!
And an Plex user made a PLEX Client for this tv too, it still buggy but it works now.
Faster DSL is not economically feasible at my location
Pausing the stream does not appear to spool the content for viewing later - plus it locks the display
Is there a better way to use the HULU plus app with my 1.5 Mg max download speed?
HDTV: LG 47LA7400
Blu-Ray Player: BP530 3D Surround
Keyboard: Logitech K400R

Surround: Acoustimass® 5 Series II system
If I remember correctly, DSL 1.5 (or 1500 as my ISP called it back in the day) downloads at a max speed of 170kB/s or so - depending upon how far you are from the exchange. You can test that with most downloads.
The recommended minimum for the sites who stream in HD which I'm familiar with is 400kB/s (EG: NFL Game Pass). Even with my ADSL2+ speed of 1mB/s (I'm about 4 miles from the exchange), HD content occasionally acts up and eventually clears up again.
Anything which streams jittery on your browser (EG: Internet Explorer or Firefox), which is setup better than most devices for streaming, will stream jittery on every other device. I wouldn't know any way to get around that, sorry. HULU should have minimum requirements posted for their paid subscriptions, but that's no help to you now.

There should be no reason that you can't skip updates, so no need to start with the lowest number.
And as the OP stated, there does not appear to be a way to unzip these files, even though they are .7z, which is the file extension for files compressed with 7-Zip. This is another reason I'd steer clear of updating in this manner, as the way LG is using this format is deceiving.
I'm unable to find an Australian version for online updates to see if my TV can see them, but as I said above - the file format makes me question just how they should work. Good luck!
