WebOS vs Old SmartTV's Menu

95 posts in this topic

I've also got problem with subtitles not showing <i> italic </i> subtitles and it's extremely annoying. I mean, thats a very basic feature and it's really bad of them to not implement it in some way. I have mailed them three times and I've only once gotten a response that "they will contact our specialist and get back to me", but nothing yet. I also called them and some guy talked about this being something that they have chosen to do. Honestly I didn't really understand his explanation of this and just told me to "erase all the italics in a subtitle file by editing the document" but that's not what you should need to do in my opinion, and it's a pain in the ass when you've got a big video library.

 

I'm really disappointed, I even bought a Raspberry Pi in order to watch movies without any troubles because this italic problem is driving me nuts. I wish they just would fix this, it's probably the easiest thing in the world. I believe that italics works on some older LG TV that I've tried, it's just stupid not having it working now.

Older LG models such as LM and LA series was playing ALL subs without problems even if they had color changes, italic, bold, underline etc. 

 

For the moment there is no update to fix this problem. 

This situation has started to annoying me too too much, 

I'm thinking to make use of the warranty rights if they don't fix it soon.

Probably they are working on this, since it surely must be considered a "basic" feature. The only way to be sure I guess is that as many people as possible report it as an error. 

 

This is a 1st gen OS for the TV, and surely there are lots of things that have scrapped for the first release that I am sure is planned for wither smaller updates, or the next bigger update. That is usually the way it works with consumer electronics these days, they release something decent and then spend 1-3 years fixing all the issues and adding new features. Software becomes obsolete MUCH faster than the actual hardware these days, and that is something most manufacturers have realized. Just look at Samsung and their "evolution kits"...

Yes, but they should know that we are not developers. It is OK if I register like developer, and upgrade my hardware to beta releases, than I can not complain on bugs, but if I bougt TV, stupid TV with million options less than any other hw ( computer, tablet, phone etc ), and they put beta sw on it, and can not make basic options to work, that is insolence.

 

I just can not imagine one working day of Web OS for LG TV developer, how it looks like. What are they doing if they can not fix stupid bugs like this.

 

BR.

Another problem came up last night. 

I connect my blu-ray Samsung BD-E5500 and the SimpLink couldn't work. 

I try everything that was available in both TV and Blu-Ray but nothing happend. 

I will say it once again that in my old LG 32LM620A the activation of SimpLink was just few clicks on the RC.

WTF is going on with this fuckin' WebOS?????????????

Connect your Samsung BD player through device connector to the respective HDMI port. For this go to the Device Connector tile and select your hDMI port where the Samsung is. You will be taken into a setup sequence. After this you will be able to use you remote to control the Samsung.

Also be aware that you have an extensive help - electronic user manual on your tv. The WebOS works different to the Netcast. It is a PC like software.

Nothing special for the moment. 

The problem with the subtitles still remains, also no fix update for browser's flash plugin. 

My TV's Firmware version is at 04.32.20 and WebOS Version 1.3.1-3220(afro-arches). 

The fact that they haven't fix any of these very important issues is very annoying. 

Whenever i call them, they say that "if you believe that there is a problem with your TV, take it to the service store, otherwise wait for updates". 

....At the end..... Bullshit.....

This product/community would really benefit from some kind of product roadmap outlining the future of webOS in the hands of LG.

Mr.North and anyone else who believes that soon there will be a solution. 

I am afraid that incompatibility will play a key role in what's next for this platform.

I personally think that LG should come out officially and say clearly to the people that this attempt was a FAILURE and if there is a possibility of moving to another platform using the same hardware to do it so directly and free for all WebOS based TVs owners.

I do not believe that they have room for more excuses. 

Any upgrades are available so far, haven't restore any of the major issues have been reported here and all over the internet for the WebOS platform.

The most frustrating is that LG has no officially placed on the issue, although understands their problems. And of course I can't believe that LG is not aware of all these problems, do not you think???

The best would be to have an official answer here, in this forum, in this thread. 

...Please let me know if this ever happens.

Ok the reality is this: Netcast (the older platform) rules, WebOS sucks (At least how LG implemented it, and every other implementation of every owner of webos).

I think WebOS is great for a TV.  It's clean and very easy to use.  The problem is it leaks memory.  If this is fixed in 2.0, then I am happy.  Right now, the memory leaks are crippling the OS.

Has this been corrected with any of the recent updates?

Nothing has been fixed yet. 

My TV has download all available updates but all problems such as subtitles, flash plugin in the browser, menus' delays etc still remain.

 

And by the way, another bug came up few days ago. 

 

I plug a stereo jack to the TV's audio output to send it to my HI-FI and evereything worked well untill i unplug the cable from the TV. Then I had no sound from the TV until i manually select the audio output (from the menu) to be my TV's speakers.

In any other TV i have or seen this is done automaticaly.

instead looks at you a bit, if we connect the headset bluetooth and accidentally goes off, it automatically switches to the internal speakers, think a bit when it happens at night and suddenly the TV starts to play scaring people who sleep and waking up, it is software that sucks !!!!!

Hi there! I hope you can help me.

I have a brand new LG LB650v TV and I want to play movies with TwonkyMedia (from a NAS), but TV doesn't allow me to forward or backward..

It's a crap because if I want to reproduce a movie from the middle what can I do???

 

You have the same issue?

Thank you in advance.

Hello, 

I recently got a 32LB650V from LG Hellas as replacement of my old 32LM620A where it had a serious damage that coldn't be repaired. 

Nice move from LG but....

The new WebOS for the moment is a crap compared to the old menu.

In the old menu i had:

LG Premium with lot's of goodies

LG Smart World where it was full of apps of anykind and i could find anything i want. 

LG 3D World with nice short movies, cartoons and documentaries in 3D.

Where are all these in WebOS????????

 

Now i have only youtube, facebook and 2-3 other useless stuff.

 

OK the panel's quality is better, sound is better, the configuration menu is OK, but where are all the other things that made me buy my old 32LM620A????????

 

I know I'm replying to an old thread, but have you tried LG's new 3DGO app? It's available on both operating systems and has a ton of free trailers in addition to brand new movies and documentaries for rent.
