  1. So LG has put webOS on TVs, projectors, and now cars with webos auto. Does anyone thing LG will ever produce a webos powered smartphone or tablet? I know samsung has tried with tizen and it was only with the palm pre 2 and touchpad from HP that we saw webos on these types of devices. Just curious on what everyone thingks. Here's what webos used to look like.. HP Touchpad
  2. I just finished watching Game of Thrones on HBO, never watched it when it was out. Now I'm wondering what other series should I start watching? Westworld? I'm inclined to check out SEE on Apple TV. is anyone using Apple TV with LG webOS tvs?
  3. Sounds like a SN issue. They don't support web browsers on tvs and have not made a tv app for lg, samsung, etc. On their website they list that they support: Sportsnet NOW is available on 4th generation Apple TV boxes, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Amazon Fire TV, Android TV and Chromecast. So you can hook up one for those devices I supposed if you have them. Cheapest way is to to get an amazon or chromecast stick.

  5. I was reading a few articles on the launch of Disney Plus but they did not list any of the tvs such as LG webos or samsung tv. I hope disney plus comes out in lg tvs. Its supposed to launch November 12th in the US for $6.99 a month or $69.99 a year. They also said there will be a $12.99-per-month trio bundle of Disney+, Hulu, and ESPN+ that is coming. I'm already doing espn for $4.99, I may do the entire bundle to get hulu also, not sure, At the minimum, I am definitely going to get Disney plus for all the marvel and disney movies. I really hope webos tvs get a native Disney plus app. From: https://www.theverge.com/2019/8/19/20811513/disney-plus-launch-devices-iphone-ipad-apple-tv-roku-android-subscription
  6. I thought it was available http://us.lgappstv.com/appspc/store/product/retrieveProductInfo.lge?dummy=all
  7. I doubt that will happen, they sell so many tvs that have webos baked into them. The reason LG and other manufacturers don't use android because there a licensing fees and they can't fully control it. Its beneficial for a manufacturer to have their own system. However, I was just thinking the same but have Verizon Fios, which noone has an app for and they don't even have a streaming service. Comcast was supposed to have something https://forums.xfinity.com/t5/Stream-TV-App/When-will-Xfinity-Stream-come-to-LG-Smart-TV-s/td-p/3150177 What's your guys cable companies?
  8. So for everyone that has a smart TV, do you still have cable service with a cable box? I'm in the US, so mostly interested to see if people are migrating away from Comcast, Verizon Fios, and services like that with a cable box to streaming services like Direct TV Now, Hulu, Youtube TV, Sling, etc. I have Verizon Fios currently and need to use their equipment. I'm noticing more and more that we aren't watching scheduled tv anymore and just "whenever" watching. My two young children mostly watch youtube these days. So I'm thinking of youtube TV maybe? Not sure.
  9. Posted by XDA developers... When we feature a new root method it’s typically for a smartphone. If it’s not a smartphone then it could be a tablet, smartwatch, or an Android TV set-top box. However, more and more devices are starting to become “smart,” which essentially means they have some sort of extra software feature that previously wasn’t possible. This could be a light bulb that can be controlled by our smartphone or a TV that has applications you can install. https://forum.xda-developers.com/web-os
  10. 9to5 mac posted this today... With iOS 12.2, Apple is adding support for AirPlay 2 and HomeKit for select smart TVs. Some users, myself included, are slightly irritated that LG is only supporting these features on its yet-to-be-released 2019 televisions. Fortunately, there’s a workaround that gets you most of the way there. While this method is unconventional and not officially supported, it will allow users who recently bought a webOS TV to get support for HomeKit. As outlined in this week’s HomeKit Weekly, this method allows you to control your TV’s power state, volume, and app/input switch with ease. What it won’t give you is AirPlay support, meaning you won’t be able to control what’s playing on the TV itself including play/pause, and forward/rewind controls. For this, you’ll need an always-on computer of some sort: whether that’s a Raspberry Pi, Synology, or a Mac mini (either as a server or one that’s always on). Before we get started, remember that iOS 12.2 is currently in beta and that things could change and vary from beta to beta. At the time of writing, iOS 12.2 beta 1 is currently the latest release. How to set up HomeKit support with HomeBridge for your webOS TV in iOS 12.2 beta With slight variations depending on platforms, here’s how you set up HomeBridge for your webOS TV. For demonstration purposes, I’ll be using an always-on Mac mini. First, you’ll need to install Xcode (if you’re using a Raspberry Pi or a Synology, this isn’t needed and this step can be skipped). To do this, launch the App Store, and search for Xcode. Click the ‘Get’ button and the download will begin. This may take some time to download and install, even on fast internet connection. Be prepared to wait for up to an hour for it to download and install. After it’s installed, you’ll want to launch Xcode and install the additional tools. Again, this may take some time depending on your internet connection. Once installed, it’s time to install Homebrew and node. To do that, run the following command in Terminal: Once Homebrew is done installing, simply type the following command to install node: Now that the basics are out of the way, you’ll need to install Homebridge, which is the framework for installing third-party plugins with HomeKit. To do this, type in the following command to Terminal: Then, when prompted, type in the password to your Mac. Depending on your internet connection, this step may take a few minutes as it’s downloading the necessary packages for HomeBridge. Next, you’ll want to install the actual plugin. This can be done by typing the following into Terminal: This may take a few moments to install. Before you go ahead and try run HomeBridge, you’ll need to set up your config file. You can find a sample config file here. All you’ll need is to tweak it to work with your own network. (The config file is located in: /Users/(username)/.homebridge.) You’ll want to download a text editor such as Atominstead of using macOSbuilt-inin text editor, as that can cause problems down the road. Within the sample config file you’ll want to change the IP address and Mac address to match your TV’s. There are a few extra options you might want to consider adding to your code: Inputs — these are the basic AV/HDMI inputs. Simply add the following code to your set up (underneath inputs) for HDMI, simply replace the last digit with the input number on your TV. For AV, simply replace “hdmi1” with “av1”. As for the name, give the input a name (for example: Apple TV, PS4, Nintendo Switch): Under the same Inputs umbrella, you can also add things such as the built-in browser, YouTube, Amazon Prime Video, etc. to the set up. You’ll be responsible for finding the appropriate app ID’s for those yourself. Volume control — You can use the Apple TV remote widget in the Control Center (by tapping the Apple TV icon, tapping the drop down on the top, and then selecting your TV), to control your volume with your iPhone or iPad’s hardware volume buttons, or you can add buttons within HomeKit. To do this, you can add one of the following to your code: volumeControl: true, “switch”, or “slider”. True enables both a slider and the switch method in HomeKit. Enabling the slider will force HomeKit to recognize the volume as a light bulb. Meaning, if you have any other lights in the same HomeKit room, this will be included in the group. After setting up and saving your config file, Jump back into Terminal and simply type: If everything is set up correctly, HomeBridge will start up and spit out a QR code you can scan on your iPhone or iPad. This QR code should be scanned within the Home app. Once scanned, the Home app will walk you through setting up HomeBridge with HomeKit. This is how it should look after everything is up and running. If you want to ever stop HomeBridge from running, simply close the Terminal window and HomeBridge will no longer be running. To restart HomeBridge, simply open Terminal and type ‘homebridge’ again to get it up and running. Source: https://9to5mac.com/2019/01/31/homekit-homebridge-webos-setup-12-2-beta/
  11. Good article. Its very true and goes inline with why people complaining that their old tvs cant get an update, who may not realize that every year hardware is updated, like buying a computer. Eventually it will be outdated. Back in the day you could buy a tube tv and sit on it for 10 years. Nowadays, screens and hardware is accelerating so fast. 8 years ago I bough a 50" plasma and still use it today. It's not smart and only has 720p. Do I throw it away for a 4k and smart interface because I want newer features? Probably at some point. I always tell people with computers and laptops, don't spend on the top of the line hardware because it will be outdated in a year or two. I bought my 50" plasma on black friday 8 years ago for $600. Today I can get a 50" 4K LG smart tv for $299 on sale!
