    Hi, LG content store administrators! When will you give us Jio TV on WebOS. You have been left back by almost 2 years by other TV OS. At least compete with others in the present market. In the name of WebOS you are charging your customers heavily but you are not giving them even the minimum. Other TV manufactures e.g. MI, VU, Samsung, etc, are giving the world to their customers for a price as low as 60% of what you are charging. Still you have useless apps in your store which have no meaning at all for a TV and have left the stuffs that are inevitable in market. P K Prabhakar [email protected]

    YES. PLEASE ADD THIS! I can currently do "free" or non-DRM content using Hue Sync from a PC but it would be a HUGE feature to add this natively to WebOS. Application needs to send information about the displayed colors on a given area of the screen to the Hue Bridge over WiFi link. Hue Bridge would then tell the Hue Lights how and when to change color values. As there is no way to output video from the TV, the content providers should not have any DRM concerns. This would be the absolute cleanest solution and at least in the US market and would funnel so many buyers towards LG units. Summary of wish: Feature to be added to the "all settings" menu somewhere under display Selection enables the TV to run Hue Sync software TV then connects to the Hue Bridge on customer premises Whatever content is displayed on the TV screen from whatever source (streaming, cable box, etc.) is analyzed by Hue Sync software for color/placement information TV sends color and screen area information in real time to Hue Bridge Hue Bridge tells Hue Lights the appropriate color adjustments to make Check it out in action:

    Hello Everyone, I have 2014 LG 47LB750T tv and I am happy with the TVs performance. It has just updated to newer 05.05.25 firmware. New apps are getting added in the store. I have been following HotStar app in my phone from quite a long time. It has a very good list of shows and movies list. I was wondering if we can have HotStar app for our WebOS tv as well. Recently DittoTV app has too been added which is a boon for those who have frequent DTH cable connection problem. It directly streams live over the Internet and package is very economical. If LG Developers can also introduce HotStar app for our LG TV it will be a big boost to the platform as it is very popular in India. They also have their own Original series just like Netflix which are also very good. So requesting devs to kindly introduce HotStar app for our WebOS TVs. Thank You.

    Would love to see an app or webOS update that has a chromecast built in - so we can chromecast to the TV without requiring the google cast hdmi dongle. would be especially useful since there aren't too many featured apps (hbo go, etc) and these apps support google cast. Any plans to do this?

It allows librarys, movie infos, etc. It would be great to have KODI included in webOS. I don't think it would very hard since KODI is already available for Linux and Android. So...

    Hi Mr. Hofmeister, If you are from LG, I can bet to say nobody in this world would be so rude to their customers as you are. And if you are just a customer like me then I must say you do not have authority to reply by entering into someone else's shoes. I hope rest you can understand better and even more than what I have written. Thanks.

    Please give us the option to remove Live TV from the Launcher and Home Menu, "Today" from the Home menu, and to auto-launch the last running app (like if you were watching Hulu when you turned off the TV. I don't have cable and all of these features are just a nuisance to me. Turning on my tv with the "No signal" or "Scrambled" message because I don't have any live channels is also annoying and looks very unpolished for a $5k TV... Thanks!

    When will the 4.0 update be available for my 2016-17 LG Smart TV? I just got Alexa and can't use it for the TV unless it has the 4.0 version. Model #70UH6350-UB.

    I'd like a fast accessible shortcut to turn off the screen, eg. when pressing settings, a button on the screen. Or even better, the possibility to configure the speaker off button on the remote to turn off the screen instead. It should work independently of the energy saving feature, so that energy saving is not set to off when the screen is turned on again. The existing procedure to turn off screen is to complex press settings, press all settings, press energy saving, press off..... and when the screen is turned on again, the energy saving is set to off, and not to the previous value (eg. auto).

    @George Hofmeister : I agree, however that is why I stated have it be an app, that way they can pass that expense back to the individual, you want chromacast, ok, that will be $4.99, thank you come again!

    Indeed, it looks like you can only record signals which uses the antenna input (analog, DVB-T or DVB-C)

    We had the same issue. Unplug your tv and press the on/off button on the tv, hold it in for 10 seconds while the tv is unplugged. Then wait 20 seconds more and plug the tv back in and turn it back on. This solved the problem for us.

    Have you approached Jio TV to ask them when they will be producing an app for webOS? This figure of other manufacturers being 60% cheaper than LG makes me wonder why you bothered buying the set you did if you knew that everyone else was cheaper and provided a better range of apps.

    CHICAGO, ILL. AND TOULOUSE, FRANCE (PRWEB) JULY 24, 2018 Intuiface, provider of the world’s premier interactive experience creation platform, is pleased to announce support for the LG webOS operating system. All multi-touch content created with Intuiface software can now be run on all smart devices running webOS 3.0, 3.0+, and 4.0, including the LG TC3D series of Integrated Touch Boards with PCAP (projected capacitive) touch technology. With this announcement, Intuiface provides multi-touch signage option for webOS, enabling businesses to invest in and to realize the added benefits of interactive over passive signage. Built from the ground-up with touch capabilities at its core, Intuiface is a no-coding software platform enabling any organization to create and deliver gratifying, purposeful, data-driven digital experiences that connect people to place, powered by the latest interactive technologies. Advantages of interactive digital content include deeper, lasting engagement thanks to real-time personalization and the ability to track user preferences in context, generating actionable business insights. Organizations adopting webOS devices for digital signage distribution can now use the IntuiFace platform, empowering them to create personalized, template-free visual content, incorporate live connections to cloud-based data and APIs (including social networks, IoT, Web triggers), and adopt all core capabilities necessary for successful signage and kiosk deployments such as remote deployment, fine grained user data collection and analytics, scheduling, and the ability to work offline. The marriage between the Intuiface platform and webOS is rooted in work by Intuiface to port its HTML5-based runtime (aka Player) to the touch-enabled webOS Web browser. The result - complementing Intuiface’s previous work for other platforms – enables users and partners to both manually access and remotely deploy interactive experiences simply by entering a URL. The combination of Intuiface’s unique capabilities with the dramatically reduced total cost of ownership achieved by SoC-based LG webOS devices creates a compelling low-cost option in the signage market for content creation, deployment, and monitoring. It is estimated that projects built with these two platforms will reduce total cost of ownership by 65% and time-to-deployment by 50% over conventional display and content delivery approaches. “Devices running LG webOS, coupled with premier PCAP touch technology, have a price point and convenience that make interactive signage deployments – the natural evolution of passive signage – an excellent choice for businesses of any size,” added Vincent Encontre, COO, Intuiface. “Thanks to our technology partnership with LG, Intuiface has been able to make interactive signage creation accessible as well. We believe the market will be amazed at what can be achieved, triggering a significant increase in interactive webOS-based projects.” “Giving LG digital signage customers the ability to create multi-touch digital content through the Intuiface platform is consistent with our strategy to offer the best technology currently available in the industry,” said Jongjin Woo, ID Business Unit R&D Head, LG Electronics. “For organizations in search of an affordable, accessible path to creating interactive digital signage – even organizations with no development skills - Intuiface and LG offer a uniquely compelling, turnkey package.” Interactive experiences built using Intuiface Composer can be published to a public or private cloud storage account and then downloaded and run, using Intuiface Player, on the PCAP-based LG TC3D Interactive Digital Boards as well as on any other LG display series running LG webOS 3.0, 3.0+, or 4.0. Both Composer and Player can be trialed for free – without a time limit – or licensed with an annual subscription. Information for getting started can be found here. About Intuiface Intuiface is the world’s premier platform for creating, deploying, measuring and managing deeply interactive digital experiences without writing code. Over 1400 companies across 90+ countries are connecting people to place using interactive options such as touch, RFID/NFC, beacons, Web APIs, Internet of Things, and much more. For any industry – including retail, hospitality, real estate, tourism, education – and for any intent – from digital signs to self-service kiosks and assisted selling.

    For all those who bemoan the lack of support from LG when things do not work as expected the following article makes interesting reading: https://www.theatlantic.com/technology/archive/2019/01/smart-tvs-are-dumb/581059/ Personally I have worked in the tech world long enough to already have realised all the points made by the author and have adjusted my expectations accordingly (not just with my LG Smart TV but many other products).

    It is very critical to use a VPN or a web proxy to access certain web sites. I believe that any modern OS may support these. I hope WebOS will support one of them (at least) soon. What do you think?

    Good luck with all the time wasted looking for an answer, but whomever said, unplug your tv, anything hooked up to it, and unplug your router should be highly rewarded with a big bag o’ cash. This worked for me. I did every option except changing the dns - that looked too scary, I did re-set, went to every available thing available. Use my phone as a hot spot? Come on? Lg is supposed to be the best and this is something someone had to figure out as an option? Very disappointed with my new tv not being smartly, and I was too stupid to know how to agree to a user agreement, was making me think I actually had to hire someone to figure this out. I am in a learning curve with this, and the smart tv scenario is really defeating, but unplug, wait and find your user agreement and agree to them! Netflix marathon is happening.

    The very first time you bookmark a webpage in the browser the tv asks if you want to also add your favourite bookmarks to your tv home screen. It states that a maximum of 5 bookmarks can be added to your homescreen. I clicked "no" so havent used the funcionality myself but one would assume that if you click "yes" when first prompted, then each bookmark you save in the browser will be added to your home screen automatically until you have reached the maximum of 5. A quick look through both the browser and tv settings suggests there is no way to manually enable/disable this option after the initial prompt other tha n resetting the tv to initial settings. There doesnt seem to be any options when selecting a bookmark either so i would assume the homescreen only displays the first 5 bookmarks in your browser list. Can you rearrange your bookmarks within the broswer? That should change the 5 listed in your homescreen. Other than that you may have to delete bookmarks in order to rearrange your list.

    yeah it sucks and my tv released on november 2nd 2017 ... and they rereleased the same model one month later in the 2018 series with bluetooth magic remote smart thinq and google assistant build in the exact same model one month apart i got so pissed and basicaly i had bought an android tv by sony but best buy coudnt find it to deliver so they sent me a lg instead .... and i didn y had a choice as it was holiday time and didnt want to spend another month witjout tv but that said it is so stupid that tv has miracast which i can cast from youtube on my phone but i cannot cast my screen as we need to use lg stupid app that only let you cast songs photos and videos not your screen .... and even i can cast to youtube i cannot do it trought the assistant that aint supported .... wrost than that the tv has the smartthinq app installed to control any smartthinq devices but we cannot control the tv with smartthinq on other devices and seriously .... i dont care not having the assistant built in since i already have alexa and google homes in every rooms so it woudnt be hard to add google home.and alexa smart speakers to control the tv .... it is supposed to be smart after all and has miracast, wifi , dlna and can connect to any network attached storage wirelessly so technically i would be able to use a google home on it i can even control a old roku 1 with the google home for god sake and i was able to turn on my old 2012 sony which was kinda the first smart tvs having a web browser netflix youtube and maybe 5 other useless apps but no appstore but stil i could power on with google assistant or alexa i dont remember which the as the tv died last fall so in my opiniom they just dont care to support anything not from this year which is bad business and when they announced webos 4 they said their current tvs with web3.5 and up would get webos 4 but that was not the case at the end and aside from spotify , newsy, youtube prime and netflix the apps are useless in america they cannot even put apps for stuff we have here and i ll never buy again and my tv was praised by gamers so they probably been asked many times and thry say they release updates and features going on what people ask ... that tv got one systeme update in 1 year and it was this fall supposed to correct internet that keep disconnecting or not beinf able connenct to servers to accept being bombarded with target ads ... ... and seriously theit update made the tv way slower and the internet keep disconnecting non stop by ethernet as welll as wifi they said i needed a 15 megabit connection to stream .... and i have a 200 megabit.connection here ... if only we could hack em and install custom. firmwares but nop we cant

    those are probably thumbnails file metadata created by MacOSX, those are not visible in your computer because files with names beginning with a dot are considered "hidden" in all Unix-derived systems (Linux, MacOSX), due to FAT32 constraints it can't store thumbnails as resource forks (the MacOSX way), so it creates ._ files

    I recently asked LG support to look into this for me, and though I don't have my hopes up for full 4.x on the 2016 and 2017 sets (be it a matter of performance, developer time, or lack of customer complaints), it would *really* be nice to at least get a teaser or two (like Assistant and Alexa support) backported to 3.3 and 3.5. LG could certainly earn some valuable loyalty points by falling in with the cool kids- the ones who roll out major system updates for years ;)

    are there any updates on "steam link app" ? valve announced the end of hardware steam link production. so it becomes software only thing today. I have hardware one, and it is awesome on 49" LG screen. can't understand why they killed it. while googling these news I found that Samsung TVs already have this app. LG should not be behind Samsung !!!

    If you want to downgrade your firmware, there are topics on this forum with the instructions. However, you cannot install different generation of WebOS. For example, if you have version 2.0, you cannot install neither 1.0 nor 3.0.

    Thank you George. Yes YouTube runs fine but oddly not Netflix. I would have thought Netflix uses HTML5 for its browser and WebOS would display HTML5. No big deal just that we use the browser for everything else, email, YouTube, News channels, so we have simply got used to using Netflix from within the browser. Plus we have found Apps usually have limited functions, less security and more bugs so we avoid them. I would not want to get into a protracted discussion about whether to use apps or browser, just wondering, as you do, why a widely-used service such as Netflix would not work on a fairly-widely-used Operating System like WebOs and would there just be some simple setting that we are not aware of to enable Netflix to play content without leaving the browser.

    Hi, WebOS TV manufacturers! I have spent Rs. 65000 (About $1000) on my LG WebOS Smart TV. Still I have got only 512mb internal memory. Now my TV has started showing me low memory errors every now and then. It means my TV is no more a smart TV now. It can not play movie on browser for more than half an hour when some other app is open. Immediately it flashes error "running on low memory". What a rubbish thing you have manufactured. Where other TV manufactures e.g. MI, VU, Samsung, etc, are providing more than 2 GB memory in their smart TVs for a price as low as 60% of what you are charging, you are providing a useless memory of 512 mb. What a shit!! Now please tell me the solution to increase my internal memory or else I am going to share my experience on every social media and online market forums. P K Prabhakar [email protected]

    First of all let me clatify WebOs is not an open source Operating System or something popular like Linux, Android or Windows, Mac etc. where developers will come and design an application and get rewards in lieu of installation or advertisements. WebOS is a patronised and fully owned by LG. Even developers like you and me don't know what will they get if they design an application for the same. So, its so easy to understand and is a general principle that nobody will do anything for charity unless there is an underlying benefit. So if LG doesn't approach Jio for development of an application for its OS and reaches to an agreement for a mutual benefit with Jio, Jio will have no point in showing interest for the same because. It's not a smaller brandname than that of LG. Simultaneously if LG designs an application for Jio TV and Jio doesn't share an interface for the same it will be of no use. Its not something like I will ask Jio why they have not designed application for WebOS. They will ask me the same what I asked you "What is your authority to ask us such questions?" So, you have to understand that it's only Jio and LG who are to decide when and how they have to launch such application. My question was for the same.

    Currently the only way I know of getting HBO GO on webOS is via the Amazon Prime app: https://help.hbogo.com/hc/en-us/articles/204872107-Watching-HBO-on-Amazon-Prime I am not sure whether you have to have an actual Amazon Prime Video account as well, or if you can just install the app and use the HBO GO part of it. Sadly so many sites and services rely on Adobe's Flash, which is a constantly changing environment, instead of moving to newer more stable platform agnostic technologies. Many manufacturers just do not want to have to keep playing catchup with Adobe.
