WebOS vs Old SmartTV's Menu

98 posts in this topic

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????????

The LG Store has to open first.

In my country (Greece) is still under "Coming Soon"...

 

By the way, i found a site called webOS Nation (http://www.webosnation.com/) do you think that these apps are compatible with LG TVs?

No, those apps are for phones and the touchpad.

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:

But are other countries concerned ?

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?

Yes it is. 

The same USB stick, with same film and with the same subtitles was playing properly in my old LM620A.

I'm starting to freaking out.....

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.

Today I first discovered  my 32LB650V TV got a new firmware update. So upgraded from 03.00.65 (webos 1.0.0-7925) to the new 03.23.08 (webos 1.2.0-2708).

And then I saw LG webstore had opened here in Denmark too.

 

I wonder if there's a changelog for the firmware somewhere?...

Should we create a section for the webos web store, apps, etc discussions?

So we have a mixed vote...lol. I understand djazzy, I have a few other forums as well and we don't want to scare people away with no content. Just looking to categorize a bit with the app catalog opening for some..:)

It's not a bad idea. 

If people who use those apps can tell thier experiences and write a small review with "-" will be good for the rest who don't try apps if they don't know if it works or/and how it works. 

The only thing is that the reviews should be checked somehow for their reliability from an objective view.
