Device Menu MegamixWhile we still have a strong webOS community, many webOS users have moved on to other platforms and no longer use their webOS phones as their daily driver. But, many of those are still keeping their foot in the webOS-door by using their old phones on Wi-Fi only* or maybe even SIM swapping when they miss the joys of webOS. Or, you may just have multiple webOS phones around and like to use some as a media player for music or podcasts or have given your phones to others in the family to use. If this is the case, one of the things that you should do when using a phone without a cellular connection is to disable those cellular radios.  We have gone over how to in the past, but you can also turn off the entire radio to save additional battery life.

There are a few ways to disable your phone's cellular radio:

  1. to disable all radios, and then turn on Wi-Fi, Bluetooth or GPS as needed. 
  2. Install a patch to customize your of the screen to add a Phone usage toggle. One example would be the "Device Menu Megamix" patches from Jason Robitaille that adds a "Phone" section where you can disable the entire "Phone Radio" (see screenshot)
  3. Unfortunately, the second solution above will be undone whenever you . If you want a more permanent solution, check out another of Jason's patches in Preware called "Radio always off". This will force the device to always disable to phone radio whenever you reboot your device. If you have a need to turn them back on, you can use the toggle in the Device Menu that you added in the step above!

* Note that if you need to activate your webOS phone without a cellular network connection, you may need to bypass that phone's activation. These steps differ, depending on the . You can refer to our tips for and for more information.

      LG USA’s latest collaboration in their year-long Only on OLED content campaign is a three-part content series featuring popular Kansas City Chiefs football tight end Travis Kelce and a look at his ambitions not only for the upcoming football season which kicked off this past week but also off the field as a fashion brand founder, business owner, and philanthropist.

      The three-part series is airing on with special cut downs from the episodes available on and promoted across the .

      Episode 1 of “Travis Kelce, Only on OLED” which debuted last week, answers the question, “What’s next for Travis Kelce?” Accompanied by his close friends, the series chronicles Kelce’s next big idea, “365 Days of Travis,” a calendar allowing his fans to get more of him every day of the year. Throughout the series, viewers will see the calendar come to life from concept to photo shoot, and ultimately the big unveil.

      “Partnering with LG in the lead up to my season was a natural fit,” said Kelce. “There is no better way to watch football or any sport than on an LG OLED TV. I was stunned by the picture quality, its ability to capture the speed of sports in intense, crisp detail and deliver an experience that made you feel like you were at the game. Working with them on this series also let me show people who I am off the field. I appreciate LG giving me the opportunity to share that with others.”

      “To highlight LG OLED’s ability to deliver an unrivaled sports viewing experience at home, it was only fitting that our next Only on OLED collaboration be with one of football’s biggest champions as the pro and college football seasons get underway,” said Peggy Ang, LG’s Senior Vice President of Marketing. “With our Only on OLED activations, we are bringing to our consumers unique content that goes beyond the game and highlights the stories behind today’s biggest athletes off the field.”

      The Only on OLED campaign focuses on key consumer passions in sports, movies and gaming that are drivers for TV purchases. To reach consumers, the campaign features unparalleled access to unique events and moments best enjoyed on LG OLED TVs. Earlier this summer, LG released Hangin’ With Kuz, a social media series featuring basketball star Kyle Kuzma which offered fans a glimpse into his new home and off-court passions. The program kicked off earlier this year with a live celebrity gaming showdown between multi-platinum-selling music mogul DJ Khaled and world-renowned actor Megan Fox.

      HBO Max came out recently and unfortunately they haven't built an app for lg webOS TVs yet. 
      The following devices are supported by HBO Max. If a device is supported, you'll find the HBO Max app in the app store.
      Android phones and tablets (with Android OS 5+) Android TV (OS 5+) Apple TV (4th gen and later) Chromebooks Chromecast iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch (with iOS 12.2+) PC and Mac computers PlayStation 4 Samsung TV (2016+) Xbox One So if you have any of these devices hooked up to your LG webOS TV your solution is to use one of these methods.

      When I navigate to a website that streams  audio content, e.g. knkx.org, the audio stream is not played. Have tried several such sites and encountered the same lack of audio. All other audio is played normally. 
       
      Is there a setting I must select?
