  1. I tried it on our ipad mini and it worked. The app was... well crap but it worked. They really need to work on the ui and remove the "connecting with device" message that appears constantly. Also, they should provide support for other content services like google, dropbox, onedrive. We have nothing stored locally, everything in the cloud. Samsung has this, why not LG? /MrNorth
  2. Hi! I just bought a 55" OLED tv from LG called B6V. Picture quality is stunning with 4k content and regular SD broadcast is well... crap. Just like expected. I have a few questions regarding some odd things I noticed when playing for a few hours with it. 1) When I am in youtube and press the "guide" button on the remote, nothing happens. Surely this is a bug since webos is a multitasking OS, and they made a big marketing thing about switching between apps. I expect youtube to pause and tv guide app to launch, but nothing happens. 2) Do I have different picture mode for different apps? I noticed I changed picture mode when watching tv, and then when watching youtube, the picture mode had changed? 3) The tv is HDR compatible, but does it not recognize this atumatically by content? I mean, if my wife watches some HDR and forget to set picture mode to HDR she loses the whole experience. Feels wierd. 4) How do I enable automatic timeshift? I want the tv to record constantly whatever I am watching. Can I set the buffer size somewhere? 5) Is there another way besides shaking the remote to summon the arrow? I have to shake REALLY hard for it to appear, and after a while my arm got tired. We really love this tv set, huge improvement from our old samsung 50" plasma with HD Ready, LOL. Webos is a joy, but I do wish they reduced the overall font size, because things feel too big in the tv guide for example, it is very tight with no margin between anything. The UI need some "air" between stuff. Maybe I can change this somewhere? My wife also felt "hey why is the text so big everywhere". /Cheers
  3. That is insane. I can only guess how many new features and bug fixes they will release to the older <2015 models. Probably none. I don't know who is to blame, the architects who created a platform that will only last around 2 years, or the CEOs who want to maximize profit no matter what. As an engineer, I totally doubt that the existing hardware is not capable of running webos 2.0, so my guess is that it is the profit margins that is to blame. Well, now LG just lost one customer, since future proof high end electronics is very high up on my list of priorities whenever I buy this kind of stuff that is so totally software focused (I mean, how much better can the hardware be?). Here, Apple and Microsoft behave much better, by releasing new software (often free of charge) to their existing older hardware... So long, LG... So long Bean Bird, you are cool but your owners are nuts... /H
  4. Well, I hope they bring a tv that has a fully functional Bluetooth interface that works with any compatible ear-phones, keyboards etc. And second, I hope that tv has an integrated camera for easy use with Skype. All this talk about "Webos 2.0" doesn't mean much until we get a list of fixed bugs, added/enhanced features etc. I am glad to hear that they seem to have sorted out the performance issues, but what about everything else? /H
  5. http://lgwebosworkshop.com/competition Interesting... great to see some kind of focus from LG in regards to webOS. /H
  6. This product/community would really benefit from some kind of product roadmap outlining the future of webOS in the hands of LG.
  7. Does this solve the problem with <i> tags not being rendered correctly? /H
  8. Isn't this the case when someone is speaking off camera, the subtitle is in italic. I have checked at least one movie here at home and that is definitely the case. A few years ago I developed a custom movie viewer for Windows Phone, and subtitling was one of the features I was working on, and even in that small viewer, we supported proper subtitle formatting, including bold and italic... I am baffled by the fact that webos can't get these things correct. /H
  9. In my opinion, all of "smartshare" is seriously broken, and should be rewritten... Anything would be better than the "dumbshare" of today. /H
  10. Well, what can I say.... it appears the TV can't handle italic formatting <i> tags. You should report this to LG support, but I don't have any hope of LG fixing this any time soon. They seem to have given up on webos alltogether. They LOVE To sell new tv sets, but fixing these kinds of "basic" issues with their software seems to be very far down on their list of priorities. I love the new thinking with webos, but I absolutely HATE having anything to do with LG. They really just doesn't seem to give a damn... /Henrik - who really want to throw an egg on the president of LG...
  11. I guess you should submit this complaint to the app developer, which in this case is google? Can't you submit feedback in the app store? Youtube is definetly an app you want to input texxt to, and since the tv has support for BT keyboards, it is the ideal case. /H
  12. Well, sorry to hear about your bad experiences with LG Bulgaria. You should be able to escalate it furthe rup the "food chain" to som sort of manager or marketing/sales/support manager or regional director. Maybe that will get things going? Regarding all your problems, some seem to be that the apps are not available, which is really strange, but LG seem to be very slow when it comes to distribute their services to other countries, here in Sweden we still wait for the TV spotlight feature, for one thing. And I must agree on your experiences with webos, but sadly LG doesn't seem to be doing anything at all but fixing minor bugs or stuff that has to do with enhancing/adding new features. Maybe they plan to throw out webos, they can't present a roadmap so it is impossible to know what plans they have. There are LOTS of things that need to be adressed with the current version of LG Webos, but wether or not LG plan to fix it, nobody knows. /H
  13. Shouldn't you be able to set up vcl as a streaming service and then the TV can connect to it as it would any other DLNA video source? It was a long time since I messed with VLC, but I do recall that it had some experimental streaming services... /S
  14. You should report this to LG, try calling their support. They will most likely ask you to do a factory reset, and/or contact your local dealer and have the set returned... /S
