Hi,

I am the developer of ChewieBomb, the native WebOS App for LG Smart TVs. Last month I was made aware that the app wasn't working with certain models of TVs. After contacting LG Support, the cause seems to be related with GB using Let's Encrypt for their certificate signing which is incompatible with LG Smart TVs using WebOS 4.0 or earlier ( Year 2019 ).

I've reached out to LG Support to see if they will push an update to accept Let's Encrypt, but wanted to also reach out here to see if anything can be done if LG won't agree to push a fix.

@viperlasson: ChewieBomb rules. I was sad to see it stop working last month since I used it all the time.

I got a 2017 OLED, which I guess is ancient now :(

Also good to tag @rorie for this so maybe he can push it forward to the tech team as myself and I think many other GB users who own LG OLEDs use ChewieBomb quite a bit for our daily GB viewing.
