I bought a new webos lg tv. I like the style, integration and simplicity of it. Only I miss one feature that I would expect on a new smart TV and that is a picture-in-picture (pip) feature. I understand that's a new platform for tv and some features are still new or in development.

I hope this feature would be on an future update. Could we make a request on the development team of LG?

And it would also be nice to have a small TV screen on web browser which you can turn on/off and move around, it was a feature on the old OS, before webos

I think PIP feature will never be available due to hardware limitations. As far as I know for the PIP function to work 2 tuners are required.

The only think that can be possible is to have PIP from 2 different sources (e.g. one HDMI and one TV-cable).

Right all samsung tv has PIP from tv on HDMI mode (even the low end 32F4300 has PIP), very useful when your are on PC mode.

 

7 years ago bought a LG plasma that had PIP (very good tv), and after that I've just bought samsung, now wanted to try again with LG, but I find that it has lost much rather than improved. 

 

For now WebOS is a very poor piece of software

That is the whole point, to use PIP with TV tuner and different source. I have external HDTV tuner and 3 other devices with which I would like to use PIP. I had it with my 6 years old Sony TV and it worked great. So, PIP is a great feature for all TVs

Yes, very useful feature and I hope that WebOS will develop fast so we can have new features and apps

WebOS is soooo bad choice, I really regretful after buying it? there's no record from HDMI, there's no PIP, there's no sync sound to smartphones,there's no apps, just a few that are weak. any plans to update ?

Has anyone heard any more on this topic. We just bought a LG tv and are very disappointed about not being able to keep watching tv with using the web browser. What is the point otherwise? I have to just go and get my laptop.

Go and return your TV if you still can. I have bought LG 3 months ago and there hasn't been a significant improvement whatsoever. If you've just bought it return that shit and buy yourself a Samsung. It is to late for me sadly but you can still do it! :)

Hello great LG Team/Developers,

 

My LG 55UB850V is realy nice, but a TV PIP on HDMI mode would be very useful.

I am a software developer and do several things at the "same" time on the TV... like work, play games, just surfing on the internet (for work and/or private), or move files from one directory to another :D.

 

Videostream is nice but uncomfortable. So I hope you try to add this feature.

 

Best regards from germany :)

I think PiP would be a good feature! However, I want WebOS to stay easy and simple to use.

 

The question is: can it be added in a way that's easy to manage?  I think it might work.
