Using LG Smart TV as web based systems monitor

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.
