I bought a 47 inch 650V TV a week ago and I noticed that this SmarTV has a huge potential but still lacks very basic features. So I hope that I don't regret buying this TV if a update don't gives us some really great improvements.


* First of all, WebOS it's slow. It really needs a huge performance improvement. Im not a BETA tester. If the system it's not ready, they should have hold it for a while and hire some inside beta testers.


* Youtube app doesn't play videos in HD. Compared to my AppleTV, the difference it's huge. This is a 1080p SmartTV and there's not a single option on Youtube to play everything in 1080p or at least, 720p.


* Audio Output only gives us a option to select one instead of a multiple sound output. Sometimes I use a Digital Out Surround Systems, and in my old LG TV, I could use the TV Speakers and this digital audio at the same time and only mute the TV. It's the fastest way to use both. In this new smartv, I have go to the audio settings to choose the audio output everytime. For a slow system, it's a really painful solution.


* This TV has Bluetooth built in, and there's not a single option to pair a Keyboard, Mouse or a Audio Device. It's locked to LGs proprietary Bluetooth devices. It's inaceptable since Bluetooth technology is standard and to use a Bluetooth Keyboard/Mouse/A2DP sound I have to get a pack that cames with a USB Bluetooth dongle. So all my BT keyboards and mouses that doesn't have that USB dongle can't be used.


* I own a LG G2 Smartphone and I cannot simple use the LG SmartShare. It's slow and crashes all the time, so sharing my videos and photos to TV it's simple mission impossible. The same goes for Wi-fi Direct. It simply doesn't work. And the same goes for the LG TV Remote App. It's very slow when we try to use the "mouse pointer".


* It's not possible to resize .srt subtitles and tags like <i> and <b> are not recognized by the TV. So not only I can't have Italic and Bold text, but those tags are also added to the subtitles like normal text...


And I notice this with just one week of usage, so obviously there's a lot more things to improve but this features are simple to use on my AppleTV and my LG can't handle them very well. I bought this TV and paid the extra money to get a good SmarTV compared to the 5700 model, with the intention to get rid off the Apple TV... but at this moment I just can't...

Adding more Missing Features after learning more about LG WebOS.


* Favorite button should open the favorite channels in a list and not jumping from channel to channel. It doesn't even make any sense! It kills the "ease to use".


* Favorites should allow us to mix DTV channels, no matter the source (Antenna ; Satellite ... )


* Easy and fast way to change between Antenna and Satellite and even add a "All in One Place" option. Jumping from Antenna to Satellite it's a wast of time and kills the user experience.


* When using a computer mouse, they should add a function for the middle or right button with the same function of the "SMART" (home button) on the remote. That will allow us to use RF Mouses without the need of having the remote for just this simple function.


* Sound Output really needs to allow us chose multiple outputs instead of just one. I would like to use the TV speakers and HomeCinema (Optic) at the same time just like on older LG TVs.


* When searching for Satellites, it would help having a sound with different tones to to match the signal percentage.


* Allow us to DELETE channels. Hide them only makes everything a big mess, specially because when I try to move alot channels at the same time the WEbOS crashes (The low memory problem)

Agreeing - satellite and terrestrial channels should be "mixable".

Favorites button - now I don't understand what it is doing...

Deleting channels should be an option.


And...webos 2.0 is still SLOW on my 50LF652V. I know this might not be the best TV, but it's good enough for me, but the system should not be so slow!

I agree with the previous post.  I hope that these will be added in a future webos update!
