PreCentral: Set an Alarm

Recommended Posts

Set AlarmIf you need to set an alarm on your smartphone, there are quite a few ways to accomplish this task.  You can create a calendar entry at the time you need the alarm to go off, you can use third party apps like Power Nap, or you can just use the built-in functionality on webOS to create an alarm through the Clock app.  While this is available on both webOS phones and the TouchPad, the steps are slightly different between the two types of hardware. But overall, the process is relatively the same.  To set an alarm on your device:

  1. Open the "Clock" app on the device.
  2. Tap the Alarm icon icon on the bottom of the screen to switch to alarm view. On phones, you may need to tap the screen one time for this to become visible
  3. Type the "New Alarm" button on the TouchPad or the + button on the bottom-left of the screen on phones to view the "Alarm Preferences" screen to create a new alarm
  4. Edit the alarm details, including the alarm name, frequency, time, and ringtone sound, as well indicating if you want this alarm to be enabled by default. If you select Enabled = OFF, it will still create the alarm but you will need to turn it on in the future.
  5. Once done, tap the "Done" button on the TouchPad or swipe-back on phones to save the alarm

Your alarm will be added to a listing of available alarms. If this if your first time creating an alarm, it will obviously be the only one there. But you can add multiple alarms and then flip the ON/OFF switch as necessary to activate or deactivate it or tap on any alarm to edit it. If you want to delete the alarm, simple swipe-to-delete the alarm and then confirm the deletion.

Be aware that the alarm will use the volume setting in the Sound & Ringtones app. So, be sure to set the volume at an appropriate level to ensure you hear the alarm when it goes off. There is also a setting available in the Clock app that will allow you to either use or bypass mute switch on phones or the mute option on the TouchPad, so the alarm will still sound even if the system sounds are muted.  To access this setting, swipe-down from the top-left of the screen while in the Clock app and choose "Preferences" from the dropdown menu. Be sure that the "Ringer switch off" option on phones or the "When Sounds is Muted" option on the TouchPad is set how you want it.

    • Built In Chromecast

      Would love to see an app or webOS update that has a chromecast built in - so we can chromecast to the TV without requiring the google cast hdmi dongle.  would be especially useful since there aren't too many featured apps (hbo go, etc) and these apps support google cast.  Any plans to do this?

    • Question: 2 Hour Auto Power Off Timer

      My non-LG TVs have an inactivity timer that will shutdown the TV after a specified time if there is no user input.  My OLED65B7B and 55UJ6540 have a 2 hour auto power off timer, but it will not shutdown the TV.  I've run multiple tests trying to get it to work. and I have been told by LG 7 different ways the timer works.  I've tried everything from using the power on timer to pausing my DVR.  Does anyone know if the timer works, and if so, under what conditions will it shutdown the TV?

    • Question: OLED55C8: Can I have a different source on power up?

      I just got an OLED55C8. I won't have a cable or antenna connection to it, nor will I have any other devices physically connected to it. So there are no input sources to choose from. Everything I view will be coming through WiFi. Whenever I turn on the TV, it comes on with the TV source selected. And because I have no signal sources connected to it I get a random noise picture and sound. If the volume was up high on the previous viewing, the random noise is pretty loud. It can be pretty jarring at times. Is there some way I can set it so that upon power-up one of my streaming apps, such as YouTube TV or Netflix, is selected? Or can it come on with the volume off and on the home screen? If not, is there some way I can at least set the default volume level used at power on?

    • Question: Incessant "open input list" on power-up -- 65UB9500

      Has anyone in the community had issues with the incessant "Open Input List" pop-up on the bottom of the screen on power-up?   To reproduce:   - You need the TV (65UB9500) connected to a single HDMI source via an AV receiver   - Power on the source selected on the AV receiver   - Power on the receiver, with the correct input selected   - Power on the TV   The TV will go through multiple handshaking "glitches" (video goes on, then off, then back on) while the audio is playing.  At the end, the video will be showing.  Twenty seconds later "Open input list" appears, saying that there's no video signal (except there is...)   I've tried disabling SIMPLINK, HDMI control on the receiver side, everything.   What seems to trigger the issue isn't so much the presence of video, but if the TV sees a source over HDMI where it can't identify the source.  If you bring up the "input switcher" app -- you can get a description of the attached source over HDMI.  The device, if it isn't populating the list, confuses the TV.   Has anyone seen this before or addressed it?
