Using LG Smart TV as web based systems monitor


Vytis Valentinavičius

Question

Hi,

 

We currently own 2 LG 42LB630V TV's and are using them to display live system monitoring data from production systems.

 

Unfortunately some WebOS features (like screen saver on browser app, or random TV shutdowns) are making things not as pleasant as we expected.

 

Are there any possibilities to re-flash operating system in this particular model?

 

Basically we require such functions from these TV's:
 

1. Display a webpage with JS without any interruption (our case: http://www.lgwebos.com/topic/1697-cant-get-screensaver-off/#entry2797)

2. Start up and shutdown on specified time (now the TV's start at 6:00 GMT, stop at 8:00 (for no apparent reason), and stop at 16:03 (intended to stop at this time) )

 

Now we have a Raspberry Pi connected via split HDMI cable, but this solution renders the monitors only 50% useful, since all display the same page. And no, we have no intent on buying another Raspberry :D If possible we would prefer to get rid of Raspberry at all.

      I have an LG OLED55C6P TV. Because of hearing difficulties, I generally use bluetooth headphones when watching the TV.  As far as I have been able to determine, there appears to be no way to use the headphones and also have the TV speakers working at the same time. This means that if I'm watching TV, no one else can watch and listen unless they have headphones.  Am I missing something?  Is there a way to have the headphones and TV speakers working at the same time?

      Hi, since I think yesterday I have an issue with HBO GO - it just shows unsupported device and that is it. According to their website, WebOS 3.5+ should be supported, I have LG uh6107 and in menu it shows SW version  5.60.15, so I think it should be ok.. does anybody have the same issue?

      When I am trying to play premium content on hotstar, it is showing me the playback error. Please resolve this. In other devices it is working perfectly. I have raised this to hotstar they asked me to raise it to TV manufacturer. Attach is the screenshot of the issue.

      I’d love to stream the upcoming F1 season directly from my LG OLED TV without depending on other devices to source it. When can we expect this app to be featured by LG? Thanks!

      Our current app is available on 4K/UHD LG television models running the following system software:
      webOS 3.0 webOS 3.5 webOS 4.0 webOS 5.0 No 720p or 1080p (“full HD”) sets are supported for our current app at this time.
      Note: Due to root certificate limitations with the device OS itself, only webOS 5.0+ devices support secure connections with a personal Plex Media Server. To allow connections to a personal server, devices running earlier webOS versions must be set to Allow Insecure Connections in the TV app settings and the Plex Media Server must be set to Preferred for the Secure Connections preference.
