Here is a report from George Mari:

“Just for some background, we have been having our Chicago WebOS Meetup at the same local restaurant, Moretti’s in Schaumburg, IL, every 6 to 8 weeks, since August of 2011. Well, OK, some of the Meetups have been at other restaurants, but the vast majority have been here. I don’t remember what our record attendance was in the past, but I’ve been at several meetups where we’ve had at least 12 people. More recently the numbers have been down to about 4 or 6.

We usually order some food and drinks, and just talk about what’s been going on in the world of webOS, which sometimes in the past, was way too much to fit into one night of discussion!

We’ve had employees from Palm/HP attend in the past, and so we’ve had quite a few device and accessory giveaways over the year. Pretty much everyone who has ever attended has gotten one thing or another over the years.

This past meetup, these were some of the things we talked about:

1. Marc showed off a recent nightly build of LuneOS to everyone at the meetup. Everyone got a chance to see the progress being made on this open source hope for the future of webOS and we liked what we saw so far.

2. Sara talked about how she is still looking for a calculator that works the same as on her old Treo – the conversions to different units can be done by just tapping the button. For example, if you enter 12 on the calculator display, and tapped the button for feet, the display would immediately show 1. The webOS calculators and converters all seem to make this a 2-or-more step process.

3. Sara asked if there was a way to run the “Classic” ROM on her Pre3. Marc replied that the Pre3 was the only device that people were unable to get Classic to run on.

4. Keith asked if anyone had played with one of the new webOS TVs. I mentioned that I had done so at a local electronics store, and I liked what I saw – very easy to use. However, it bore little to no resemblance to the webOS we have all come to know love on phones and tablets.

A tradition of ours – we try to take a picture of all of the webOS devices everyone brought to the Meetup, and this time was no exception.

A few other minor discussions that started with, “How do I…” and “Does anyone know…” were had, as well. Everyone pitched in and tried to answer as best as we could.

Well, that’s about it. If you’re ever traveling to the Chicago area, check out @chiwebosmeetup on Twitter to find out the date for our next meetup – we’d love to have new people!”

      Hi Team,
      After update of LG WebOS to 04.40.70, Amazon Prime Video app on my LG Smart TV stopped working. It started giving error :
      Internet Connectivity Problem
      There is an internet connection problem. Check the device's internet settings, data cables, or try to resetting your router. Also, turning your device off, and then back on might fix the problem. For further assistance, please contact Amazon customer service at www.amazon.com/videohelp
      The internet/wifi connection is fine and all the other apps are working without any issue on the LG smart TV.
      I have even tried uninstalling and reinstalling the Prime video app, but that didn't help.
      Has anyone faced this issue ? Is there a solution available for this issue.
      Thanks & Regards,
      Nitin

      Hi to all! 
      I'm really new into this and have a problem. My 2018 LG 55UJ635V-ZF has only webOS 3 (latest; ethernet-automatic download) an i can't use airplay or miracast. The apps i found in the store for mirroring are only pay2use to use this needed feature for me.
      On the LG Homepage i can't find an upgrade for my TV an maybe is my tv really to old for upgrades or am i wrong?
      Maybe someone can help me out or bring some light for me in this.
      I also found the suggestions on this site for the firmware 4.70.70 (for the UJ's), but i can't download....error.
      sorry for my bad english 🙂
      thx for your help, quartex.

      The built in Web Browser will not play Videos on SOME websites after updating to WebOS Version 04.40.25 and 04.40.70. The web sites otherwise work fine. Here is an example that won't play since the 04.40.25 update ...

      Greetings Touchpad users! The webOS Nation Forums went down this month -- unceremoniously redirected to some crappy review site, despite the community's pleas to let us save or preserve it in some fashion. As a result, we're looking here (and other places) for some kind of community forum!
      For those who visit here, I wanted to let you know that despite all recent set-backs, the legacy webOS community is alive and well, still using our Touchpads, Pres, Pixis and Veers in 2023!
      Resources to get online, apps to try out, and lots of other things to do can be found at webosarchive.org
      We've also got a Discord server going -- it even connects to webOS Devices, through a modern app called SimpleChat. Come join us at docs.webosarchive.org/community
