WebOS vs Old SmartTV's Menu


Recommended Posts

Hello, 

I recently got a 32LB650V from LG Hellas as replacement of my old 32LM620A where it had a serious damage that coldn't be repaired. 

Nice move from LG but....

The new WebOS for the moment is a crap compared to the old menu.

In the old menu i had:

LG Premium with lot's of goodies

LG Smart World where it was full of apps of anykind and i could find anything i want. 

LG 3D World with nice short movies, cartoons and documentaries in 3D.

Where are all these in WebOS????????

 

Now i have only youtube, facebook and 2-3 other useless stuff.

 

OK the panel's quality is better, sound is better, the configuration menu is OK, but where are all the other things that made me buy my old 32LM620A????????

Hi, Wiliamsats, Hi Alex.

 

My problems are the same as yours: No LG Store in France, no Magic Remote AN-MR500 available.

 

Has anyone a date about thiese events (Alex, is "this month" May  ?)

 

Otherwise, LG Customer support is answering very fast and precisely, but they can't tell more about a date in a country or a buying location.

This TV set still a very good device, some stuff is working very well:

- 3D

- Miracast from a samsung phone (only display from photos and video, not screen mirroring)

- Optical output to a DSP

- Network connexion by wire

- HDMI and Component intputs (automaticaly reconized when a signal is in)

- AND watching TV from DVB-T

 

My former set coudn't do the 4 first things (the williamsats' sandwhich is far more tasty than my older ;-).

 

djazzy, your comment about changing country to have some more apps is very interresting.

 

Alex was right about May:

OK, another bug that i found last night.

My TV doesn't display properly greek subtitles (they look like "Chinese"). 

I tryied to change almost everything that was possible, but nothing happened. 

I hope it'll be fixed with the update.

 

 

Alleluia ! the update has come today (15/05/2014) and the store is open ! skype, youtube, arte+7 for me !

Where do you live?

 

...And so, if i change the country from the settings will this affect any other settings in my TV?

Like i  say its not your tv set Your prob try to use  a SRT file to decode on the run .IF it happens with live tv ( or decoder) yes then its your tv :)

 

but for now   just try to find out what happens   .Can be the resolution  or something like that . And yes iam still not  realy happy. missing a lot of things to setup the tv properly.

 

 

But the good thing is i Got  WIDI running on my  Home pc :)  so  is can use HBOgo on big screen now . and typing this now  on the big screen

with a logithech k400 keyboard keys and mouse pointer work both

In my old LM620A i use to plug the USB stick in one of the TV's USB ports and everything was OK with the subs. 

Doing it the same way now, my TV doesn't recognise the greek fonts of the SRT file and instead it shows incomprehensible words. 

 

By the way, thanks for posting the model of your keyboard, i'll get one too.

      Our current app is available on 4K/UHD LG television models running the following system software:
      webOS 3.0 webOS 3.5 webOS 4.0 webOS 5.0 No 720p or 1080p (“full HD”) sets are supported for our current app at this time.
      Note: Due to root certificate limitations with the device OS itself, only webOS 5.0+ devices support secure connections with a personal Plex Media Server. To allow connections to a personal server, devices running earlier webOS versions must be set to Allow Insecure Connections in the TV app settings and the Plex Media Server must be set to Preferred for the Secure Connections preference.

      I am creating a streaming application, where user can access a list of mkv files from my server, Mkv is not supported in web browsers and it is not loading properly within my webOS web app.
      I cannot modify my files to another video format.
      Is there a native player for LG WebOS that I can embed into my web application ?
      Is there any video player with web sdk to play mkv on a smart tv.
      Ps: my videos are working well on chrome, as for Firefox or Safari, it tells me that the format is not supported.

      Just getting the runaround from LG, only want a baseline figure, they sent me this
       
      , our technicians have explained that we cannot calculate the unit's actual power consumption when not in standby because there are too many factors that could affect this calculation. These factors include how many pixel refreshers are run, whether the unit is connected to the internet, external devices connected, speakers connected, sound systems connected, HDD connected and recording set ups. I am afraid that we consequently cannot answer your question.

      we all know LG are not helpful to customers , but there’s no need to keep proving it.
      this TV has a good energy rating so figures must be available, they either dont care or understand what I am asking
       
      thanks

      The problem that my QNAP NAS Mediaserver disappears from the WebOS Home screen and from the Home dashboard happens irregularly and unpredictably almost daily. The only way to get it back is to reset WebOS to its initial (factory) settings. After I do that, it always reappears on the Home scree/Home dashboard. I have no idea why this happens, it even happens after I watch an hour of movie content from the NAS and then want to browse through the files on the NAS: it suddenly is not accessible anymore. I tried to tweak (a lot of) the NAS settings but nothing helps.  
      My NAS has a fixed IP in my home LAN. Is it possible to connect to it with the IP address? 
      Any other suggestions how to remedy this tedious problem are welcome!

      In the file attached is a photo of the Home dashboard with the Mediaserver present.
