Right, beside this also have support for samba and allot more...

Or maybe you can buy a raspberry pi 2 and get OSMC or OpenElec on it as I'm doing.

I get lot more functionality and performance compared to LG apps and overall OS performance.

 

To bad, I really regret I got a LG, next one will not be for sure LG..

Kodi says that they won't create it, they just syed it directly, it's very shocking, check it out. Here is the official link:

Please give me a like if it was helpful

 

Its very shocking??? Do you even know what the Kodi project is about? They are not optimizing the program for any device in particular, this WHY the project is Open Source! 

Whant a cheap Kodi able computer with HDMI? get a Raspberry Pi 1 or 2. It works perfectly.

 

Now instead of whining why don't you use the source code of Kodi and compile a WebOS version yourself? And then submit it to LG to see if they approve it (now their answer will be shocking...)...

Wo, relax, i just sayed "shocking" the way of replying with just a simple "no" without any details, and i didn't sayed in any moment that they have an obligation to do that, instead i just shared the answer to what people were exited about and wanted. I didn't payed 760€ on a smart tv just to buy a mini pc apart, and if some people don't know, there is an app named MKV_VOD for WebOS that is similiar to kodi, it has the similiar UI and similiar functions, even the same backroung image, the problem is that it's only available in a specific coutry, i think that the app is compiled using the same code as kodi. You can see tons of videos about MKV_VOD on Youtube.

Well i might have been a little harsh, but your post readed like someone that does not contribute but complains about an Open and Free Software just because it did not does what you want.

 

Kodi core team focus on the project and does little extra ports, and they probably would never submit a version to LG software shop, like they never did with the Android version. (there have official builds for Android but you have to get them outside the Play store).

 

That program you are talking about is probably a port of Kodi/xbmc that does not respect the GPL_v2 of Kodi and that is probably why i only found it on a Turkish forum. Also its side loaded for what i could translate... that means that you can download it to a USB drive and use it on you TV (personally i'm going to try it). If you translate the forum were its posted the binary you will see that is not on LG App store but is sideloaded.

But for what i can figure out from the blog where its uploaded the latest builds, this program does not seem to be a rip-off of the Kodi code but an entirely independent project... but then again there is little info about the code (that i could find out).

 

Also you can get the latest build of it here:

So try it and share with us the experience if you please.

Surely someone out there has a way of coding a version of Kodi into a format we can install onto WebOS 2.0...I dont have coding experience but surely it cant be too hard to do, I know LG is never going to offer it in the store but thats fine if we can install it ourselves. Its killing me having restrictions like this applied by LG...

No doubt about it... but there are a lot of complications IMO...

1st the Hardware, and i mean the custom SoC on the TV's, does not have documentation available to the general public... So any coder would be forced to use LG API/SDK to port Kodi.

2nd is the part that its not clear how many system resources are available... WebOS AFAIK is there to provide a computing experience BUT TV functions come 1st... so how often would Kodi be "killed" during operation is a pertinent question (to free system resources, since Kodi can hog a lot of them depending on what type of media you are playing).

And finally, if it can be sideloaded how fast LG would patch that? Rendering the project and all the work useless :/

      From heart rate monitors in smartwatches to accelerometers and gyroscopes for measuring an athlete’s movement or swing, technology takes sports to a whole new level of precision. In the world of esports, advanced tech isn’t just something that’s good to have, it’s a necessity. And in this world, LG UltraGear hardware has developed a reputation as the best gear for victory.

      According to , the gaming PC and monitor market expanded rapidly in 2020, reaching 55 million units sold for a year-on-year increase of 26.8 percent. And with more people than ever working and playing from home, demand for better PC hardware experienced huge growth with sales of LG’s gaming monitors more than tripling between 2019 and 2020.
      Let’s take a look at what sets LG UltraGear gaming monitors apart from the rest.

      Compared to other panel technologies such as Twisted Nematic (TN) or Vertical Alignment (VA), LG’s In-Plane Switching (IPS) panel provides a wider viewing angle with minimal color distortion as well as a wide color gamut with excellent contrast. LG was the to introduce an IPS monitor with one millisecond Gray-to-Gray (GTG) response time, a significant advantage over the 20-30 milliseconds of regular monitors. One millisecond means fewer distracting visual effects such as ghosting for a smoother, faster gaming experience. And with a refresh rate of up to 144Hz, ultra-high screen resolution and exceptionally lifelike picture quality, it’s easy to see why LG UltraGear has become an esport favorite.

      Currently there are in the UltraGear monitor lineup including a new 32-inch (model 32GP850) featuring the advanced Nano IPS display technology. Later this year, LG will debut the industry’s first 34-inch monitor with NVIDIA G-SYNC® ULTIMATE built-in for the highest level of compatibility with NVIDIA graphics cards.

      LG makes a great effort to understand what gaming fans really want. One way is through the UltraGear Advisory Board, an online community of approximately 200 gamers from around the world managed by LG. Members of the board have a voice in developing new products, advising on both technical as well as design aspects.

      And LG UltraGear gaming monitors are not only the ideal choice for a home gaming setup, it’s a brand in high demand by professionals who game for a living. LG is currently with Gen.G Esports, one of the top esports organizations, to support their League of Legends Champions Korea (LCK) team. Using LG UltraGear monitors, the team is already .

      Built for a better gaming experience to deliver an edge over the competition, LG’s UltraGear gaming monitors have been the preferred gear for many gamers since its launch in 2018. So whether you’re a pro gamer or just a casual player, LG UltraGear can provide the right gear for the job to make the difference between victory and defeat.

      Hi LG
      When playing a Dolby Vision file encoded in MKV container format, the image is green/purple in colour. A quick googling says, this occurs due the default media player in WebOS not able to decode Dolby Vision MKV container files properly.
      When will this be fixed?

      I am using the above TV. Quite often when watching a programme live from the aerial, the screen will suddenly go to the "wallpaper" screen and a box advises there is no signal, the TV is checking for a signal and please check connections etc. After a few seconds the TV resumes with the programme that was being watched. Obviously, the TV seems to be temporarily losing the signal. However, a 2nd LG TV (older model) in another room, feeding from the same aerial has no such problem and neither do I get signal drop outs when using my Humax box for recordings, all of which suggests the aerial signal is perfectly OK but for some reason the 55NANO795NE  momentarily loses it. Anyone else having a similar problem and any thoughts on what to do to resolve it?
