picture in picture (pip) - feature request


slee

Recommended Posts

I bought a new webos lg tv. I like the style, integration and simplicity of it. Only I miss one feature that I would expect on a new smart TV and that is a picture-in-picture (pip) feature. I understand that's a new platform for tv and some features are still new or in development.

I hope this feature would be on an future update. Could we make a request on the development team of LG?

I think PIP feature will never be available due to hardware limitations. As far as I know for the PIP function to work 2 tuners are required.

The only think that can be possible is to have PIP from 2 different sources (e.g. one HDMI and one TV-cable).

Right all samsung tv has PIP from tv on HDMI mode (even the low end 32F4300 has PIP), very useful when your are on PC mode.

 

7 years ago bought a LG plasma that had PIP (very good tv), and after that I've just bought samsung, now wanted to try again with LG, but I find that it has lost much rather than improved. 

 

For now WebOS is a very poor piece of software

That is the whole point, to use PIP with TV tuner and different source. I have external HDTV tuner and 3 other devices with which I would like to use PIP. I had it with my 6 years old Sony TV and it worked great. So, PIP is a great feature for all TVs

Yes, very useful feature and I hope that WebOS will develop fast so we can have new features and apps

Has anyone heard any more on this topic. We just bought a LG tv and are very disappointed about not being able to keep watching tv with using the web browser. What is the point otherwise? I have to just go and get my laptop.

 

Go and return your TV if you still can. I have bought LG 3 months ago and there hasn't been a significant improvement whatsoever. If you've just bought it return that shit and buy yourself a Samsung. It is to late for me sadly but you can still do it! :)

Hello great LG Team/Developers,

 

My LG 55UB850V is realy nice, but a TV PIP on HDMI mode would be very useful.

I am a software developer and do several things at the "same" time on the TV... like work, play games, just surfing on the internet (for work and/or private), or move files from one directory to another :D.

 

Videostream is nice but uncomfortable. So I hope you try to add this feature.

 

Best regards from germany :)

Yeah, I thought PiP was standard so I'm utterly disappointed in LG for being so stuck-up and arrogant for not including this feature in the software/hardware. It's 2018 already.....see if I ever buy a single LG item ever again! Nope, not I. I've been a long-time consumer of LG products but not anymore. I hope more people read these articles before spending another dime on LG products.

      Hi,
      My TV is driving me nuts!
       
      I keep getting reminders for programs starting for programs I don’t watch or have never watched and 2. The tv even switches on for scheduled programs that I haven’t set.. actually I have only ever set one program reminder and that has now been deleted.
       
      I can’t see any programs in the reminder page or anywhere in the tv programmer?
       
      Short of resetting the tv I don’t know what else to try? And I don’t really want to do that until I know how the tv ended up like this? Plus I don’t want to have to reload and sign in to all my apps 😬

      I hope LG will consider to enable the Disney+ Hotstar Apps for Model 2016 LG TV. My LG TV Model is 55UH617T.  I've raised this concern few times and hope LG will take necessary action.

Among the winners, LG StanbyME, a unique wireless display designed for a new kind of content-consuming audience, received the coveted Gold distinction.

      LG USA’s latest collaboration in their year-long Only on OLED content campaign is a three-part content series featuring popular Kansas City Chiefs football tight end Travis Kelce and a look at his ambitions not only for the upcoming football season which kicked off this past week but also off the field as a fashion brand founder, business owner, and philanthropist.

      The three-part series is airing on with special cut downs from the episodes available on and promoted across the .

      Episode 1 of “Travis Kelce, Only on OLED” which debuted last week, answers the question, “What’s next for Travis Kelce?” Accompanied by his close friends, the series chronicles Kelce’s next big idea, “365 Days of Travis,” a calendar allowing his fans to get more of him every day of the year. Throughout the series, viewers will see the calendar come to life from concept to photo shoot, and ultimately the big unveil.

      “Partnering with LG in the lead up to my season was a natural fit,” said Kelce. “There is no better way to watch football or any sport than on an LG OLED TV. I was stunned by the picture quality, its ability to capture the speed of sports in intense, crisp detail and deliver an experience that made you feel like you were at the game. Working with them on this series also let me show people who I am off the field. I appreciate LG giving me the opportunity to share that with others.”

      “To highlight LG OLED’s ability to deliver an unrivaled sports viewing experience at home, it was only fitting that our next Only on OLED collaboration be with one of football’s biggest champions as the pro and college football seasons get underway,” said Peggy Ang, LG’s Senior Vice President of Marketing. “With our Only on OLED activations, we are bringing to our consumers unique content that goes beyond the game and highlights the stories behind today’s biggest athletes off the field.”

      The Only on OLED campaign focuses on key consumer passions in sports, movies and gaming that are drivers for TV purchases. To reach consumers, the campaign features unparalleled access to unique events and moments best enjoyed on LG OLED TVs. Earlier this summer, LG released Hangin’ With Kuz, a social media series featuring basketball star Kyle Kuzma which offered fans a glimpse into his new home and off-court passions. The program kicked off earlier this year with a live celebrity gaming showdown between multi-platinum-selling music mogul DJ Khaled and world-renowned actor Megan Fox.
