Recommended Posts

Find out what's new in the webOS 3.5. Now, all you have to do is relax as webOS 3.5 makes the TV experience simpler than before.

Set to be found across ‘LG’s entire lineup of premium TVs’, the latest webOS system - named  webOS 3.5 - will deliver a range of improvements taking in everything from enhanced remote control features to getting you closer (literally) to the action with improved zoom functionality.

Starting with the improvements made to LG’s Magic Remote handset, it will be possible to instantly access your favorite streaming service - such as Netflix or Amazon - by pressing a single assignable button on the remote.

LG has nipped in ahead of the official launch of the CES in Las Vegas to reveal details of the latest improvements it’s introducing to its much-lauded webOS smart TV interface.

The new ‘Magic Link’ button will also streamline the process of accessing background information on what you’re watching, such as bios of the actors.

As for the improved Magic Zoom feature, this will let you not only zoom in on parts of the image with enhanced control and quality, but also let you record the enlarged image - a potentially handy way of solving household disputes over, say, just how bad a supposedly dangerous football tackle really was.

WebOS 3.5 also jumps aboard the VR bandwagon. If you connect a webOS 3.5 TV to a VR-capable computer or mobile device via USB cable, you can not only watch 360-degree VR content on your TV but also use the Magic Remote to move the scene in any direction and zoom in and out of the image using the handset’s handy scroll wheel.

Everyone know the most things we use on smart tv it's to watch movies or tv show. That's lead us to important thing which is the video player, the video player on smart tv not fully support subtitles, there's subtitles with tags and colors and fortunately lg video player not support it! As a user I want to change background color of the subtitle i want to change font, add shadow to it. to make subtitles clear to read as user i want all that give me that and I'll throw away all these features u mentioned and I'm will be grateful.

      On LG OLEDs. You go on and disable SIMPLINK. Fine. But everytime you turn on your HDMI device it enables itself back again. This happens because they have disables two key features that were present in previous OSs, as you can see clearly here
      link hidden, please login to view (they even put screencaps of the menus where you see the missing options in the 23) These functions are Auto Power Sync and Auto Device Detection.
      Man updates are supposed to add functionalities not the other way around. It's very annoying to turn on your TV and have your AVR turn on without you wanting to.

      Anyone found a solution for this problem?

      Hi all,
      I'm wondering how you can get into the service menu (In Start) on an old LG Smart TV (42LB630V) running WebOS 1.4.  I have a Samsung Galaxy S6 (SM-G920F) with a IR blaster, I have tried sending '0x04FB 0xFB04' to I which should be IR code to enter the menu, but that doesn't work.
      I have also tried entering it with the SSAP-Web, but I get:
      error: 500 Application error {"errorCode":-101,"returnValue":false,"errorText":"\"com.webos.app.factorywin\" was not found OR Unsupported Application Type" The SAPP-Web app does works though, because the TV does respond to Get info
      { "returnValue": true, "product_name": "webOS", "model_name": "HE_DTV_WT1M_AFAAABAA", "sw_type": "FIRMWARE", "major_ver": "05", "minor_ver": "05.90", "country": "omitted", "device_id": "omitted", "auth_flag": "N", "ignore_disable": "N", "eco_info": "01", "config_key": "00", "language_code": "en-GB" } The reason I want to access the menu is because I've enabled DEBUG mode on my TV through the NVM method and I want to enter a root shell trough UART to enable SSH and root access.
      Gaining root access through NVM:
