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..
Hi, Concerning Smart TV 55ub850V. I like that there are regulary updates of the Firmware/WebOS. I would appreciate if LG would supply a list of major alterations and bugfixes. It is very hard to find out improvements of a new release. I would appreciate such list i.e. in the online manual. I am sure that with this lack many potential customers do not by this product because there are many wrong/old information on many fora.
I'm really impressed with WebOS, though I have noticed a few bugs.
However, the Smart Share feature really needs work. Here are some suggestions, covering the most important areas:
Easy access to content! This is the worst part right now and I can see a couple of ways to fix it: Add Smart Share shortcuts to the Launcher Bar. These could include one or more of these options: DLNA server, folder & view type DLNA server, folder DLNA server Alternatively, completely redo the top-level of Smart Share Start with list of DLNA/content servers Allow users to create shortcuts to specific servers, folders with/without view type Retain view-type selection! Right now, this defaults to "list view" after you power-cycle, etc. Better use of screen area at the top It shows the current folder in big text, how about showing (in a different text color but still large text) the select folder underneath that Make it more clear that the tab on the left is a tab/button that goes back to the previous device or folder Fast-forward and rewind I think the scrubber works but I don't see why these are greyed out? Thanks!
I'm using a LG smart TV with webos (and previuosly a Netcast TV) and I think there are some simple changes to do that can improve a lot the overall TV esperience (not Smart capabilities).
Please add your thoughts or your suggestion in order to have a complete list of simple improvements.
I'll add them in this first post to have a complete list of changes.
1) When using remote command numbers, the reaction of the TV seems very slow. It needs to be improved.
I think it is related to the searching of most recent channels that starts with pressed number/s. If this is the reason,
---> I suggest an option to enable/disable that search (when a number is pressed on remote command) to improve response time.
2) Settings menu is very attrative, but it is damn slow, above all at first opening. It can be right for some settings rarely used, but there are settings that needs to be very fast to use, as "aspect ratio".
In Netcast environment, there was a button to modify aspect ratio directly.
---> I suggest an option to associate a shortcut to a color button (if needed, an option in menu to enable/disable this shortcut).
---> A more general suggestion is the possibility to associate custom function to color buttons choosen by user: this'd be the best.
3) One of the most confortable thing of Netcast was that the channel short info (showed by OK button) was showed automatically when the channel is turned.
---> I suggest an option to associate show/not_show the OK info on TV when a new channel is selected.
4) First pressure on Info button is useless, while second pressure shows details.
---> I suggest an option to associate enable/disable INFO first pressure information on screen, to avoid second pressure that shows an annoyng lag.
More suggestions soon...
