2009 LG TV Software

I recently read that the 2010 LG model TV's got new widgets add to their televisions but the 2009 models did not. From what I have read the 2009 models are using and older version of Yahoo Widget Software.

I was working on some very simple widgets (mostly to teach myself the basics) but would I be wasting my time if I am using the original WDK. If I get the newer WDK can I even test any widgets I create with it on my 2009 Model TV (42LH50)?

Any Ideas when this TV will get updated to the newer Yahoo Widget Software? LG Customer service has no idea...

  • I have the same model and was wondering the same thing. I contacted LG and they said the TV is discontinued and will no longer be updated, what kind of support is that as I have only had it about 2 months and its out of date. The updates should be handled by Yahoo and not the manufacture, I know this model can handle the newer version and there is no excuse. I will continue to call LG to see if they will update to the newer version of Yahoo widgets. Cross your fingers as I want to stream video content too.
  • We bought the same model as a testing device last summer. It is great device. We would like to see it get updated as well. &l

    "We are working on getting more for 2009 TVs. LG needs to update the software to make these widgets available. Unfortunately it's not up to Yahoo! for this update :(I just want to be reassured that an update IS coming... I've got 2 months left on my return policy. I'd rather not have to use it...
