[Feature Request and Ideas] Add Folders to SmartShare!...

13 posts in this topic

Hi LG, your Web OS is really well built, but there are a few essential features lacking.

Such as:

 

- Folder filtering in the SmartShare App (We all need this ASAP, the navigation is a nightmare!).

- Audio stream selection within video files in the SmartShare App.

- A PLEX App the collaborates nicely with the PLEX Client.

 

- Faster start up times. From when you power on the TV to being able to quickly access the home menu and change the Volume, channel, etc.

  If you have to just offer an option to put the TV into a low power state/sleep (for as long as the user wishes) so you can resume quick menu navigation almost straight away.

  (and unlike Sony don't make it so after a few hours of the TV being asleep it fully powers down. (THIS IS NOT USEFULL, and is the reason I took my Sony TV back to JB HI-FI

  And bought yours).

  You could call this feature "PowerAct", or "instant on" it would make 'Life Good' and easier :)

 

- Auto backlight brightness? I have the Australian LB 6500 and I can't seem to find a Auto-Backlight/dimming feature anywhere, and seeing as I use it in my room, when the lights are off 

  I want it to dim so I don't go blind. I don't know if you've implemented a Ambient light sensor or not, but for $1,800 I would think you should have.

 

- If you would Like anymore Feedback/Suggestions, Feature requests or ideas from me then just PM me or write on this thread :)

 

Thank you LG, and thank you for being one of the very few 'Innovative' companies around today.

The folder structure in Smart Share works. 

Do the following:

1. Click ALL on the left side of the screen.

2. On right hand side, in the upper part, now you see three icons."View Type", "Device Selection" and  "Device connector". 

3. Click on the first one from the left. This is the "View Type" icon. You will see List view and Folder view as options. 

4. Chose "Folder view"

5. Now you have the folder view. All the sources are shown in the main window. If you click on a source you will see the folder structure. On the right hand side you have only two icons now.  

 

Here is a picture showing the step 5. http://screencast.com/t/CTENsDz8 With 1 is shown the first step where you have to click "All". . 

 

Enjoy!

Audio stream selection from DLNA sources would be a good feature...

How about the possibility to choose "Folder view" as default view? Because now it is veri inconvenient - everytime the Smartshare is opened, you are navigated to thousand of photos displayed in list view..

In smart share "Device view " should be default view,

Fed up of slow things are with just watching media from my TV .

Step.1 turn on TV ,wait for 15 secs to get the launcher ready.

Step 2 get to the smart share & select all devices.

Step 3 go to settings via home key & choose aspect ratio to full screen

Step 4 enjoy my media .

Earlier it was 5 steps with choose view type but latest firmware has fixed it.

Yeah I know lol :(.

Web OS is quite laggy on my system! (Lb6500) 55" 3D.

And it hasn't really gotten much better yet??

Whether it's to do with weak hardware and processors (pretty sure that's it) or software optimisation issue (probably not),

Why the hell did you not put a sufficient PROCESSOR in my $1800 AU dollar TV LG!!!!

Answer me please! Where are all the moderators on this forum, or people who work for LG?

Processor is just dual core , hope there is some on chip card soc for playing ultra HD content of bitrate above 125mbps .

Yesterday we tried to play the 4k video of lg demo via USB HDD , it outputted message as only video will be displayed , "no audio will be played " I was like what it doesn't even support audio with the video.

& the video also had low frame rate my guess would be 15 fps with some msecs shuttering

To its defense the HDD was connected to USB 2.0 port ,will try usb3.0 port & report if possible.

New update is available for country region Australia.

this just shows the devices as folders but not the media in folders. I see that you have a Zyxel NSA 325. I have a NSA 211 and I have a Video folder and then Movies and Series and within  Series I have a folder for each series and then each season. When I browse on SmartShare I see all of my videos in one long list including all the children's shows and movies which I do not want to see when I am looking for a specific grown-up movie or episode.

      Hocus Pocus, with one wave of the "Magic Remote" LG Superholed me just one week before the Superbowl. My LG TV would not work due to the "Magic Remote" failing to register. I did a 'hard reset' at the tech's request which was to press home and back for 5 seconds, followed by the OK button 5 or 10 times. Unplug and unbattery everything, fresh batts, nothing worked. There is NO workaround for this issue, and after resetting to factory presets and all updates, I am now stuck with a TV that does not work. In a chat with tech support at LG, I was informed that ALL LG tvs now depend on pairing with the remote to work. He stated this includes the coming Signature W Series OLED77W7P, OLED65G6P , OLED65E6P , OLED55E6P C6 OLED OLED65C6P , OLED55C6P OLED65C6P , OLED55C6P B6 OLED OLED65B6P , OLED55B6P OLED65B6P , OLED55B6P. Failure can be caused by Bluetooth failing within the TV, the remote failing to work, or possibly a software update issue. For instance. In any case, your TV could become worthless ANY time due to the "magic remote" working. Good luck finding a used one as authorized LG retailers have already stopped selling replacement remotes for a TV manufactured less than 2 years ago.
       
      My question: How have other consumers been able to recover their losses from LG?

      There's a serious problem in my LG Refrigerator, I purchased this in April 2014 and now in Dec 2016 the light inside the Fridge is not working. This light doesn't turns on when the fridge door is opened. Also I lost my bill and other documents. Any help and suggestion are warmly welcomed.  tubemate
      Also I called local mechanic but he said that need to call LG technician. Suggest me how to deal with this. Thanks

      Hello everyone. 
       
      I have problem. 
       
      I bought LG 49UH600 few days ago. And I tried to use applications, but there is no possible to upgrade them. Its also with LG store , It cant be open.
      I only can use WEB Browser.
       
      I searched over the internet and found out that I have to register account for my TV, and that I could do it in quick settings- advanced - general - Account Management 
       
      But when I go to advaced - general -  there is no account managment option at all.
       
      What to do ?
