Install WebOS on TV ?
A few months ago after a firmware update, the one that says "SLING + FreeStream" across the screen on starting sling, each time the tv comes on, and sling was the last item open, it says network error, and if I exit sling loads fine.
It only does this with Sling and my LG tv's. Netflix doesn't do it and my Samsung and Visio don't do it. None of my LG's did until that update. It's like they're trying to go to a site before the TV's network is ready, and no retrying it.
If I go to Netflix then turn off the TV, when I turn it back on Netflix loads just fine with no Error.
I'm resetting these again. I tried that multiple times and it doesn't fix anything. Deleting the Sling app and reloading and updating doesn't help either. This all happens on all 3 of my new LG's.
Is there a Twitter App for LG webOS? I can't find it in the LG Content Store on my LG smart OLED TV. I can open Twitter in the browser app, and once it raised a prompt "It's better in the App" but that has not returned.
Web searches on the topic come up empty. Either the app is there so nobody asks about it, OR people are really incurious!
I noticed since the last update of WebOS, it defaults to a screen with apps along the bottom rather than HDMI1 as before on startup. Even after going into the input settings and selecting HDMI1, it stills defaults to the other screen on startup. When selecting HDMI1 on the inputs screen, it has a red dot in the corner, which I would assumes means that's the selected default. But again, this seems to be ignored this on startup.
