Smart Share Improvements

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

I'm really impressed with WebOS, though I have noticed a few bugs.

However, the Smart Share feature really needs work. Here are some suggestions, covering the most important areas:

  1. Easy access to content!  This is the worst part right now and I can see a couple of ways to fix it:
    1. Add Smart Share shortcuts to the Launcher Bar.  These could include one or more of these options:
      1. DLNA server, folder & view type
      2. DLNA server, folder
      3. DLNA server
    2. Alternatively, completely redo the top-level of Smart Share
      1. Start with list of DLNA/content servers
      2. Allow users to create shortcuts to specific servers, folders with/without view type
  2. Retain view-type selection! Right now, this defaults to "list view" after you power-cycle, etc.
  3. Better use of screen area at the top
    1. It shows the current folder in big text, how about showing (in a different text color but still large text) the select folder underneath that
    2. Make it more clear that the tab on the left is a tab/button that goes back to the previous device or folder
  4. Fast-forward and rewind
    1. I think the scrubber works but I don't see why these are greyed out?

Thanks!

It would be nice addition , & I would also like to add that every time I open a file in smart share , its aspect ratio needs to be changed to my preferences full screen settings, it resets every time I turn off & On the TV.

Better photo management with next photo prebuffered , so that it shouldn't show loading symbol while going to next photo. & Also photo resolution option to "fill the screen" .

These three additions would be really helpful.

      I have a 2014 LG Web os smart TV    ( 65UC970T ) and I don't have any access to apps.  There used to be a selection of apps and now there's none. How do I access them?

      I finally updated the software on my TV, and now I have to force a reset whenever I want to turn it on. (Unplug for 60 seconds.) The TV will not turn on without a reset, from either the remote or the power button. Once it's on it responds normally to the remote.  It doesn't matter how long the TV's been turned off - when I want to turn it back on, I have to reset it.
      Has anyone else had similar problems?

      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.

      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?

      I've just bought my new LG 43" UH668V
       
      I've installed the Smart Share software on my PC which is extermely Slow and painful to use. Does everyone get this experience? My PC is high end with powerful CPU and graphics + SSD hard drive.
       
      When I share my music folder the TV doesn't show all the folders and MP3's within it. It stops very short in the list (only showing artists A-H).
      My music folder has 1470 folders and 20,000 music files within it. Are there any limitations to the sharing and is there any workaround that doesn't involve jailbreaks etc.
      Also, when I click music, it appears to give me repeated folder names, instead of following the same folder format my PC has.
       
      I also wanted to ask why LG offers more than one piece of software to share media from my PC to the TV?
      Is one better that the other? I own Nero 2016 - should I use that over LG offer?
      Is there a known media sharing piece of software that out performs all the others - i'm happy to invest in software that handles this perfectly?
       
      Any help is appreciated?

      It would be super handy to have the ability to create a bookmark (a tab on the home menu) to make it easy to return to any location on a DLNA server. It has taken weeks to discover the folder browsing option hidden in Smart Share, but it still requires drilling down through the nested folders to get to the good stuff. A bookmarking feature once you're in a folder would be awesome.
