Can an app be automatically started when TV is turned on?

Question

Hi,

 

is it possible to develop an app that is automatically started once the TV is turned on?

 

It would be similar to a "kiosk" or "hotel" mode. The reason is that the TV shall be used

to display infos to customers. In unexpected cases like failure of elelctricity the TV

will boot and the app should be started automatically, so that the infos are

displayed again without user interaction.

 

I'm not sure where to start looking how this can be achieved.

 

Any suggestions?

 

Thanks!

 

-Carsten

      I've recently bought a LG OLED C9 PLA TV set, installed the latest version of firmware WebOS 4.71.XX. I like the WebOS interface, but there is one thing I absolutely don't understand and would appreciate to get solved:
      I use the single tuner in both modes, satellite and antenna.
      I'd like to have mixed favorites list from stations received from antenna and satellite and browsing between them without explicitly switching to satellite or antenna mode, thus having WebOS to automatically set satellite or antenna mode depending on the chosen station from the favorites list.
      At the moment this is quite difficult to handle: Open the list from RC, open the filter (yellow button), switch between antenna/satellite -> the list is reset to All, again choose the favorites list of my choice.
      I know it is possible to add mixed tuner mode stations to favorites, but there is always shown the portion matching the currently set tuner mode. This is quite difficult to handle.
      Isn't there another way?

      I often feel the need to turn off my TV's screen after I select a playlist and start playing. Can we have this option in the Spotify app. We do have this option in the inbuilt music player where we can turn off the display while the music plays in the background and we can turn the display back on by pressing volume up button on the remote. Felt that this option could be added to Spotify app as well.
      Thanks

      Please add the ability to have eye comfort mode turn off / on at set times. (Similar to night shift on iPhone)
      Or at least move the setting to an easier location to avoid digging through settings menus.
      I turn it on every evening to stop the light effecting my circadian rhythm, then off when watching TV during the day and this would be very convenient.

      When I launch my smart tv app, sometimes it stays up for awhile and suddenly goes off. When I'm watching movie on either YouTube or Netflix, I occassionally get black screen for a while before the screen returned to normal. I called the support team a while back and the agent taught me how to perform reset which does work occassionally by pulling the plug off the socket and pressing the start button for 25 minutes or so.  Now all the workaround no longer works.  Please help!
