PreCentral: Maybe it's time to stop hating on HP?

Maybe it's time to stop hating on HP?

Hate is an incredibly intense emotion. Hate implies that you want to see the object of that emotion ended at all costs, be it the weather, your nemesis, or that untrained dog next door that barks through the night at nothing and everything. Hate is consuming, hate is destroying, hate is by and large wholly counterproductive. Hate is simply not good.

It has been thirteen months since in . It was a fit that was utterly destructive to the future of webOS and the community as a whole, and those who work on and with the operating system for a living and those of us who for various reasons care about webOS have slowly recovering from that most improvident decision. Heck, HP's been struggling to recover from the decision, having been forced to and in the process.

Yet still, well over a year after the ax fell and the planned future of webOS was shunted to the side, I still find on a regular basis hate towards HP. The words still ring out in the comments and the forums, "I hate HP!" and "Damn you HP!" and so forth. HP as a company has changed in many ways since August 2011, not the least of which includes a new CEO in Meg Whitman to replace the failed and disastrous tenure of her predecessor, Leo Apotheker.

      Is there any way to change the defaults to your own.
      For example I shut down my BT headphones and every time LG tv changes to internal speakers and I have to manually change to what I want ?

      Probably the hardest working appliance of every home is the refrigerator, working non-stop 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. But such a heavy workload means our most essential appliance is also our most energy hungry, which is why properly taking care of your fridge benefits both the environment and your wallet. To make that job simpler, LG designed its InstaView Door-in-Door refrigerator range to deliver the most energy-efficient features while at the same time providing outstanding convenience for the perfect kitchen life.

      Keep Food Fresh, Open That Door Less
      Ask yourself this: how many times do you open your refrigerator without taking anything out? We’re all guilty of opening the fridge door out of curiosity or to check what needs replenishing and this has a significant impact on how much energy you use. LG’s Door-in-Door feature reduces cold air loss by providing a separate space for your most popular items. This seemingly simple design not only lets your hardest-working home appliance operate far more efficiently, it also saves you a handsome sum by keeping the compressor — the engine that creates all that cold air — from working overtime, the key to increasing its lifespan.1 Along with all its other innovative features, the LG InstaView Door-in-Door refrigerator has amassed a loyal fan, resulting in more than one million units being sold worldwide in 2020.

      Being the Perfect Host with Craft Ice
      When hosting friends and family, an ice maker can make the difference between a good drink and a great drink. LG InstaView refrigerator with Craft Ice automatically makes standard ice cubes, crushed ice or LG’s exclusive round Craft Ice which last longer than ice cubes, keeping drinks cooler longer.2 Cocktails and soft drinks taste so much better with clear, aesthetically-pleasing ice balls seen in the fanciest restaurants and bars.

      ThinQ-Powered Convenience
      To reduce energy consumption and your energy bill, LG’s ThinQ AI platform sends notifications to your smartphone if your refrigerator door is left ajar. Users can control key features from anywhere inside or outside the home through either the LG ThinQ app or voice commands using Google Assistant or Amazon Alexa.3 You can even activate vacation mode on your smartphone ThinQ app to check the refrigerator and freezer temperatures remotely when away from home for an extended period of time.

      Smarter Living with Proactive Customer Care
      Proactive Customer Care (PCC), LG’s AI-infused smart customer service, lets users manage their refrigerator’s performance with minimal effort. LG’s PCC service analyzes usage patterns and provides maintenance tips and alerts for potential issues to keep your appliance performing at its best. The comprehensive AI service guides you through the installation process, teaches you how to use your LG devices and informs you when supplies are running low or when software updates become available.4
      LG’s latest InstaView refrigerators will be displayed virtually in LG’s digital starting January 5.

      1 Reduction of cold air loss up to 41 percent based on Intertek testing of models SX5534WB, GR-S632GLRC and LFX3194ST/02 using LG internal testing method measuring percentage reduction in exchange rate of air when opening Door-in-Door compared to regular refrigerator door for 10 seconds. Results may vary by model and duration of door opening.
      2 Craft Ice lasts approximately 15 percent longer than cubic ice in water based on internal tests comparing the average melting rate of Craft Ice and cubic ice in an environment of 25-27 degrees Celsius and water temperature of 9 degrees Celsius.
      3 Applicable for models with Wi-Fi connectivity with both the appliance and LG ThinQ app connected. Service and feature compatibility may vary depending on the region.
      4 Availability of Proactive Customer Care may vary depending on model or region.

      Anyone seeking the best big-screen gaming experience need look no further than LG’s 2022 OLED TV lineup. With their self-lit pixels delivering ultra-fast response time and support for the latest gaming features, not to mention the latest PC hardware, consoles and cloud gaming services, LG’s advanced TVs take high-definition gaming to immersive new heights.
      Over the years LG OLED TVs have added many industry-first features to deliver gaming excellence. LG OLED was the first TV to be certified by NVIDIA as G-SYNC® Compatible and LG 8K OLED TV was the first to demonstrate 8K gaming with NVIDIA® GeForce RTX 30 Series graphics cards. LG once again raised the bar for gamer-friendly TVs with the addition of support for Dolby Vision® at 4K 120Hz.

      LG OLED TVs have been the real deal when it comes to leading the way in the adoption of genuine HDMI® 2.1 features and inputs and LG’s newest models continue that tradition with expanded HDMI 2.1 support. Every new LG OLED TV, QNED Mini LED TV, QNED TV and NanoCell TV will support automatic low latency mode (ALLM) and enhanced audio return channel (eARC) with most OLED, QNED Mini LED and QNED TVs certified to support variable refresh rate (VRR).
      LG’s 2022 TVs have also been certified by HDMI Authorized Test Centers (ATC) for meeting the requirements set out in the latest HDMI 2.1 standards including VRR, eARC, Display Stream Compression (DSC) and support for Fixed Rate Link (FRL) up to 48Gbps.1

      DSC is a future-proofing technology that enables visually lossless compression for ultra high definition displays. LG introduced DSC in its SIGNATURE OLED 8K Z series, 8K QNED Mini LED TVs and 8K NanoCell TVs in 2021, providing viewers with outstanding 8K 60Hz 12-bit 4:4:4 video capabilities. Able to enhance the clarity and definition of onscreen objects and colors, DSC is now offered in seven LG 2022 TV models with VRR and DSC support in the LG lineup.2
      Select 2022 LG TVs also feature four ports that support FRL, a signaling technology supported in the HDMI 2.1 specification, to deliver higher uncompressed resolutions at ultra-high speed bandwidths (up to 48Gbps) for super-fast gaming and hyper-realistic graphics.3 Some LG premium TVs (models OLED Z2/G2, QNED99/95) also come Wi-Fi 6 certified, ensuring smooth online gameplay and more reliable content streaming for more speed and less latency than ever before. Wi-Fi 6 will be especially advantageous to subscribers of cloud gaming services such as NVIDIA GeForce NOW and Google Stadia, both available on LG 2022 Smart TVs.

      With Game Optimizer, LG’s latest TVs make setting up the ideal gaming environment a fast and simple affair. A one-stop menu for all gaming-related settings, Game Optimizer lets users select and switch between game specific features as well as game genre display presets such as first-person shooters and role-playing while the new Sports option brings an added sense of realism to action-packed games.
      Game Optimizer provides quick access to the new Dark Room Mode, which adjusts screen brightness for a better gaming experience in a dim or dark room. Players can easily change the screen’s aspect ratio to suit the game they are playing or the device they’re using (PC or console) as well as manage NVIDIA G-SYNC®, FreeSync Premium and VRR settings all from the Game Optimizer menu. Players can also activate Blue Light Reduction to help prevent eye fatigue and AI Game Sound to transport themselves deeper into their favorite titles.
      With its 2022 OLED and premium LCD TVs, LG is once again demonstrating a commitment to meeting the needs of today’s gamers and delivering the best big-screen gaming experience possible.

      Hi,
      I have just bought an LG nanocell with DLNA support.
      I have a server with UPnP/DLNA activated but I don't know where to go on the television to see the contents of the server.
      If I press the Home Button I just see my apps, then in another row the HDMI-connected devices and then all the rest of the channels.
      Where do I have to go to see my NAS?
      Thank you.

      LG Elevates Listening Experience to New Heights While Reducing
      Environmental Impact Throughout Entire Product Lifecycle

      SEOUL, Dec. 17, 2021 — At CES 2022, LG Electronics (LG) will introduce a new lineup of audio products with diverse models offering premium performance, unique and stylish designs and exciting, new sound experiences all the while ensuring accurate, immersive sound for home cinema, music and gaming.
      LG’s impressive audio lineup is spearheaded by the premium LG Soundbar (model S95QR), which boasts an output of 810W and 9.1.5 channels of pure surround sound immersion as a holistic high-end audio solution. With five up-firing channels including the world’s first center up-firing speaker – three on the soundbar and two in the separate rear speakers – to improve clarity and enlarge the soundstage for the ultimate in realism. The perfect choice for movie lovers looking to elevate their home cinema experience, the LG Soundbar’s center up-firing speaker delivers clearer dialogue and makes Dolby Atmos and DTS:X content even more immersive. And with IMAX Enhanced, users can enjoy stunning three-dimensional audio when watching compatible content.
      LG S95QR features several key enhancements, most notably a boost in performance of the new speaker drivers, speaker chambers and subwoofer. The larger woofers deliver a more premium audio quality with deep, resonant bass emulating the immersive sound system of a cinema. For 2022, LG upgraded the wireless rear speakers of its premium soundbar setup from four channels to six, with four front/side drivers to accompany the two up-firing drivers. An improvement over other speakers in this space, the rear speakers of LG Soundbar are designed to distribute sound evenly across a wide 135-degree space, giving customers more speaker placement and angle flexibility, especially beneficial for smaller rooms.
      The soundbar features a more sensitive receiver that allows for more distance between the soundbar and accompanying subwoofer and rear speakers without sacrificing sound quality. With a more stable wireless connection, the LG S95QR eliminates drops or lags in audio output for distraction-free viewing and listening. Thanks to the inclusion of Meridian Audio’s Horizon technology in Music Mode, the soundbar can up-mix two channel audio to 7.1-channels for more realistic acoustic surround sound.
      A superb solution for gamers and music lovers, LG Soundbar features variable refresh rate (VRR) and auto low latency mode (ALLM), making this product a must-have for console gamers who demand that the onscreen action and the audio be in perfect sync.1 With support for high-quality music streaming services, LG’s soundbar makes listening to one’s personal playlists and favorite artists all the more pleasurable.
      What’s more, LG S95QR offers an intuitive user experience when working with to Google Assistant, Amazon Alexa and other AI assistants. Via smart devices, owners can effortlessly control streaming music, adjust volume and change sound modes and control streaming music, using only their voice. And now with the LG WOWCAST Wi-Fi audio dongle, listeners can enjoy lossless muti-channel audio without the hassle of running an unsightly cable to the TV. 2
      When connected to a compatible LG TV, LG Soundbar takes advantage of the TV’s advanced AI Sound Pro feature to make all content sound clearer and more lifelike. Cross-compatibility allows LG TV owners to use one remote to control both the TV and the soundbar. And with enhanced AI Room Calibration, model S95QR can tailor its sound output to any given space, analyzing the dimensions of the room to deliver more accurate low-frequncy audio that is calibrated for maximum accuracy.
      And again for 2022, the LG Soundbar lineup is designed with the environment in mind, with a lower carbon footprint throughout the entire product lifecycle. In addition to shipping in 100 percent paper packaging and using recycled plastic resin for its outer case, the new soundbar models utilize a new composite fiber material that is lighter in weight to cut carbon emissions during shipping and transporting. And due to their relatively modest power consumption, LG Soundbar products save energy during usage as well.
      Starting January 4 (PST), visitors to LG’s virtual can experience the latest audio innovations for today’s lifestyles. The interactive digital exhibit will feature LG’s full 2022 Soundbar lineup, XBOOM 360, UltraGear Gaming Speaker and the TONE Free lineup of true wireless earbuds including the CES 2022 Innovation Award-winning FP9 featuring UVnano case, Plug & Wireless, 3D Sound Stage and the one-of-a-kind Whispering Mode. Fans and followers can also keep up with LG’s latest announcements on social media by following #LGCES2022.
