have Samsung TV's received an update for the app lately ? 

 

 

 

 

Yes, most Samsung TVs have had a release. If you navigate to the Help page in the Lightbox app, it should say 2.0.08  :)

Our two-year-old Samsung shows 1.8.06

 

Does the update come OTA automatically?

Yep, seems Samsung have held back the update from certain years/models. We are working with them to resolve. Hope to have this sorted this week.

Sounds good. Does the update come OTA automatically?

Yes it should do.

 

Edit: Samsung do their own QA on releases, much like Apple. We therefore submit our app(s) to them & they release when QA are happy etc.

Our Samsung (above) now shows 2.6.0 which is a good sign. Will watch with interest to see whether earlier issues are resolved.

Really sorry @eracode - the version number you need to look at is the one on the Help screen within the app. The 2.6.0 version you see outside the app is Samsung's own, and for long/boring reasons I won't go into now, they don't (and will never) match...

So the version number showing in the Lightbox app info splashscreen is not the actual Lightbox app version number? How crazy is that? Flaky even.

It's not in our control: it's Samsung. And each time we submit an app, the Samsung version number does not correspond to our app version number. 

 

So either we make ALL our internal versioning align with a manufacturer...or we do it properly and control our own versions.

 

Which will it be, sir? Would you like fries with that?  :P

 

EDIT: FYI we are looking to submit the next version to Samsung this week, or early next. Will keep you updated

We watch Lightbox via my Sony Xperia phone and chromecast to a Panasonic Viera TV. The household is on fibre. and WiFi.

Ever since we got Lightbox we get a situation that occurs every between 3 and 30 minutes where the feed stops and we just have a spinning circle with "Loading video" displayed. It will stay like this for between 5 seconds or up to half a minute. If it goes beyond half a minute (not timed) then it will usually just crash completely.

Anybody else having this problem and are there any suggestions on how to fix it?

It is making the watching of Lightbox a marginal exercise for us.

The support team are good at diagnosing issues like this. There's a live chat option on the website if you want to chat with a real person to try some stuff.

And, wouldn't you know it: after watching all of the "The Honourable Woman" series with these problems in every single episode, we watched finale tonight and it didn't miss a beat even once .

Well clearly I'm glad about that! Still good to investigate though. Feel free to ping me through the email address you use to login to Lightbox with and I can take a look through the logs if you like.
