View Full Version : No Twitter and Vimeo app on 40PFL7007H/12

I'm a happy owner of a 40PFL7007H/12 set (with the latest firmware), however one of my upsets is that the Vimeo and Twitter apps are nowhere to be found among the Smart TV Apps.

I tried searching through the Apps Gallery, I have tried it by selecting each country, but in vain, no Vimeo, no Twitter app.

Also, and maybe on a related note, the Social TV app does not seem to work, it just loads a big black box with the default Smart TV UI around it.

Any suggestions are welcome.

I live in Hungary in case it matters.

Thank you.

Serious; there are no such thing as happy owners of these TV sets...

You probably has not tried all the featured yet....

Sure there may be some flaws, but I try not to be voracious. :)

However, the lack of these two apps has been bugging me and keeps me frustrated.

Do you also have this type of TV-set?

Thank you for the Vimeo trick! :)

My parents have a 42PFL9664H and it turns out both Vimeo and Twitter are available from the App Gallery. This is kind of weird if we consider the fact that the 9664 series are from 2009.

Do you happen to have any idea how/why this could be? What's the reason these apps are not available directly on a newer generation TV?

Thank you Toengel for the Vimeo workaround! :)

Do you happen to know how/why this could be? What's the reason these apps are not available by default on a newer generation TV?

Hi,

some apps are only available in certain countries - try to change the country in NetTV... vimeo is available as official app.

Of course, some apps are only working on newer devices correctly - even if it looks that they are working on old devices.

Hi,

"is not working" is NOT an error description.

Hi,

I just switched to Finland, Germany, UK and International in the country settings to no avail, these apps are still missing.

(Back then, when installing the cable channels, I, for obvious reasons, set the TV-location to Hungary. Could this had an impact on what NetTV displays as default?)

Thank you!

Hi,

did you try to delete the Internet Memory?

yes I tried to delete the Internet memory

also i had this problem with older firmware (133.5) and i though that the old firware was the reason

so i updated to the latest 150.082 and did a full factory reset after the upgrade but the problem is still there

Same here.

Also, changing country settings within Net TV didn't seem to work either despite changing it between Germany, UK, Finland, and International settings.
