    • LG WebOS Open Source Edition for Raspberry Pi 3

      LG has announced an Open Source Edition of its webOS operating it currently uses for its smart televisions. Currently, the Korean company has released an open source version that is specifically aimed towards use on the Raspberry Pi 3 microcomputer, but they want webOS to expand to other devices as well. WebOS was an operating system that was originally developed by Palm for smartphones, with a heavy focus o developing apps using web technologies such as Javascript as well as HTML and CSS. Unfortunately for Palm, webOS never gained much popularity and the software was then bought by Hewlett-Packard, which also failed to make gain a significant market share with webOS. LG is now using the operating system for its recent smart televisions, such as the recently released OLED TVs. The open source version of webOS is the result of an agreement with the Korean National IT Industry Promotion Agency, and LG hopes that the software will of use for start-ups in their home country. The company hopes to expand the use and reach of webOS to a plethora of devices. An SDK has been released for developers as well as a number of technical documents. The webOS Open Source Edition currently is optimized for the Raspberry Pi 3, but also runs on devices with an Ubuntu 14.04 64bit LTS operating system. For reasons unknown, it’s not recommended to run the operating system in a virtual environment.

    • Is webOS Ready To Move Beyond TVs?

      With today's announcement from LG on open sourcing webOS OSE, LG's Chief Technology officer said , “webOS has come a long way since then and is now a mature and stable platform ready to move beyond TVs.” So what does this actually mean? We know LG has put webOS on a smart fridge and projector, but could other appliances or possibly even phones be on the list? Maybe not directly for LG but what they probably want to see, is the usage of webOS in other technology and form factors with a common tie-back to LG. HP tried to do the same with the Open webOS Project that didn;t go anywhere and the domain is not coming up online today.  Open WebOS reborn as LuneOS for mobile devices which also saw little adoption.  With this latest release, does LG have the push to make it something HP could not? That's the real question and only time will tell. In teh end, it's all about users for an OS to survive even though there are plenty of nostalgic Palm and HP webOS fans keeping their fingers crossed for a webOS powered smart phone or tablet.

    • webOS Open Source Edition For Developers

      On March 19th, LG introduced webOS Open Source Edition with the intention of opening up webOS again to the world of development to move beyond TVs. This is the second time an open-source version of webOS has been released, the first coming under the failed tenure of HP back in 2011.  LG Chief Technology Officer Dr. I.P. Park. “webOS has come a long way since then and is now a mature and stable platform ready to move beyond TVs.” webOS Open Source Edition Architecture The following figure shows the overall architecture of webOS Open Source Edition (OSE). webOS OSE consist of a set of layers: Core Applications, Application Framework, Managers & Services, Base Components, and BSP/Kernel. Core Applications webOS OSE has Core applications as the top layer and this layer includes System UI and System app. System UI includes apps that are related to the basic user interface, such as Home Launcher and Notification. These apps are usually implemented using QML. System app includes Settings app and web browser. Settings app is used to control the system properties and implemented using Enact. As a web browser, the Chromium browser is used. Application Framework To help developers creating better apps and services, webOS OSE provides enhanced options and environments compared to developing solely with HTML5, JavaScript, or CSS. The web app framework Enact, which is equivalent to jQuery, and Software Development Kit (SDK) are provided. Enact Enact is a web app framework optimized for developing web apps for webOS OSE. For more information and structure of Enact, refer to Enact developer site. Enact is also an open source project and is provided separately from webOS OSE. SDK The SDK provides a development environment for web apps and services. In this release of webOS OSE, we provide a CLI-based SDK for developing and installing web apps and services. Web apps can be packaged with services that are developed using Node.js. For more details on development/packaging of web apps and services, see Command Line Interface. Managers & Services Managers & Services layer includes the following components. System and Application Manager System and Application Manager (SAM) oversees the behavior of apps. SAM manages each app throughout its lifecycle, including the installation, launch, termination, and removal of the app. There are two types of apps in webOS Open Source Edition: native app and web app. In case of a web app, actual launching and management are performed by Web Application Manager as described below. Web Application Manager Web Application Manager (WAM) is responsible for launching and managing web apps. In addition, WAM performs CPU usage optimization, status monitoring and recovery processing, and access privileges management, all based on the running status of web apps. Luna Surface Manager Luna Surface Manager (LSM) is a component that works as a graphics manager. LSM displays graphical elements on the screen, manages the composition of these elements, and performs the event handling for input devices such as keyboard and pointer. LSM is also responsible for the execution and management of System UI, such as Home Launcher and Notification. LSM is implemented using Qt, and System UI is implemented using QML. Activity Manager Activity Manager is responsible for managing and executing activities requested from services. An activity is requested along with a specific condition, and it is triggered when the condition is met. You can configure the activity to perform tasks such as automatic execution of specific services, callback requests, and so on. uMediaServer uMediaServer (uMS) is a module that works as a server for the webOS media framework. uMS provides interfaces for media playback, manages resources, pipelines, and their policies, and manages the lifecycle of the media player. Base Components Base Components layer includes the following components. LS2 LS2, also called Luna Bus, is a system bus used by webOS OSE. LS2 manages the interface registration and invocation required for the interconnection among apps and services. Originally based on D-bus, LS2 has been enhanced to optimize the performance for embedded device environment. Web Engine webOS OSE uses Chromium as the web engine. A web engine is the module that loads and parses a web app (or web page) consisting of HTML, CSS, and JavaScript, and performs all tasks required to represent the web app on the screen, such as layering and rendering. Currently the web runtime environment of webOS OSE is implemented according to the multi-process model of Chromium. Therefore, each web app is run as a separate independent process. Chromium also includes browser logics a.k.a. Chromium browser which webOS OSE provides as the default browser app. DB8 DB8 is an embedded JSON database that supports data storing and retrieving in the structure of key-value store. webOS OSE uses LevelDB as the back-end database. The default service associated with DB8 is the com.webos.db. The com.webos.tempdb, which allows you to configure temporary storage in memory, is also provided. Node.js The service framework based on Node.js is provided so that you can implement services with JavaScript language. Node.js is a JavaScript framework that is typically run on a server. In webOS OSE, Node.js has been built in to facilitate service development. For more information on developing services based on Node.js, see JS Services. BSP/Kernel BSP/Kernel layer consists of several components to support Raspberry Pi 3. Typically, it provides evdev for event processing, Mesa for graphics support, and Wi-Fi and wired LAN for connectivity.

    • Question: DirecTV RVU "This Location not Authorized" message on LG DirecTV Ready TV

      I have a LG OLED65C6P TV which is a listed as a DirecTV 4k Ready TV. It currently has SW File Version 05.30.02 and the DirecTV Ready app version 2.2.14. My home network is wired for full Gigabit and I will used a wired connection over wireless whenever possible. I have DirecTV with a Genie Gen 2 (HR44-700).  The DirecTV app on the LG OLED65C6P was activated last February and everything was working without any problems until recently.  Everything is hooked up using DirecTV's "official" setup for RVU client viewing using DECAs where required. About 3 weeks ago, the TV started displaying the message "This location is not authorized" after attempting to connect to the Genie receiver.  The only thing that changed is that DirecTV updated my Genie with Software 0x80d.    It seems that I am not the only person experiencing this problem.  I was hoping that someone over here at LG's support community may be able provide some help. There are posts by people on the AT&T Community Forums on this issue.  Here is a link to that thread...
      https://forums.att.com/t5/Watching-DIRECTV/quot-Location-not-Authorized-quot-error-message-on-LG-OLED-with/td-p/5248047 There are some posts by people on the DBSTalk Forums on this issue as well.  Here is a link to that thread...
      https://www.dbstalk.com/community/index.php?threads/0x80d-rvu-issues.225230/ Does LG need to update the DirecTV (RVU) app on my TV?  Do they need to update the LG webOS software or does the TV Firmware need an update? If so, how long will this take?  How do I get LG to do this?
