I don't even use the apps or anything on the TV since I have my HTPC, so disabling the internet on it will be no issue for me.
Hmmm, this sounds like my situation somewhat. I updated my firmware a few days ago, no problems yesterday or today until an hour ago, when I launched Plex on my Mac Mini. Was also using an Apple BT trackpad for moving the pointer around. It didn't happen immediately, but after a few minutes the TV got stuck rebooting. The way my system is connected, the mini is plugged into input 2 on an LG HTIB, and that HTIB is plugged into input 1 of the TV. I hit the "home" button on the HTIB so that the video switched to the HTIB homepage instead of the video from the mini, in case it was something weird from the computer that was doing it, but it still rebooted. I'll have to do some further experiments to see what happens. I'm pretty sure this is the first time I tried viewing my mini since I did the firmware update a few days ago.
EDIT: OK, you got me pointed at the workaround. I think it's an issue with the new firmware and Plex. I found that the problem went away with my mini sleeping. Waking it back up, the rebooting started again. So I took my TV off of the wi-fi, and it works fine with the mini now. This was tested with the TV on and no video signal to the TV, so it was strictly the wi-fi data that was doing it.
I couldn't find a way to remove added networks from the TV, so without digging in the manual, I did it the only other way...I changed the password on the TV side to an incorrect password so that it couldn't connect.
I can live with this, because between all of my other devices, the only use the TV got from being online was firmware updates.
I'll have to let LG know. I'm assuming it's just Plex at this point since we both...well, you didn't say what you were using for an HTPC, I just assumed Windows. Is that correct Chuck? I know nothing has changed on my computer so the new firmware is still the main culprit in my mind.Edited by Bitgod - 1/11/13 at 11:31pm
