Netcast versus webOS

Question

Hi,

 

Can someone help me understand the difference between webOS platform and Netcast platform in terms of the TV application development?

Are there any specific differences in terms of TV app Creation, Installation and Deployment?

Does both the platform support "Downloadable" and "Web ( URL Based Webapp)" application types?

 

Thanks.

Pravin

Netcast is good, it naver says out of memory error, but the webOS is a fail from lg, if you watch youtube for more than 1 hour, it will run out of memory and in some cases will stop working, and you will need to factory data reset. Hope it helped.

I think that depends on your internet connection and set as well. There are reports of people who love the sets and have no issues, so it probably depends on your setup. netcast is LG's older operating system replaced now by webOS.

No, it depends on the company, i had to change my tv in the store, they replaced it with the same model and now i can watch movies in youtube but other apps and web browser still crashes with memory out error.The memory associated with other apps and the web browser isn't coded nicely, but google has programmed youtube app to work smoothly and use as low memory as possible on any device, but lg hasn't programmed the web browser to be memory friendly. And other apps developers don't know about this memory problem in the webos compared by netcast. Same thing happens with other lg apps like smartshare and others.

      I'm developing an app for LG WebOS, and at one point I load the content dynamically, ajax, and with it also appears the input for search. It turns out that even with the input focused, the keyboard does not appear. Is there a Javascript method to call the virtual keyboard?

      ok so im slowly going insane, just got a new tv and naturally i couldnt keep my fingers off the "update" button.
      before the update the HDR game mode was crisp and bright, after the update it so bloody dim some games are just... way too dark ?
       
      so i tried running a downgrade with lgdtvupdater and got everything to work but when its time to actually download the update to the tv it says that "the update cannot be applied".  everything in the logs are showing ok. but it just wont save to the tv.  it doesnt even start the download, altho i can clearly see in the logs the update is correct and the tv has given the "all clear" to the update server.
       
      am i missing something here ?
