Some questions about webos/magic remote from new user

1 post in this topic

Hi!

I just bought a 55" OLED tv from LG called B6V. Picture quality is stunning with 4k content and regular SD broadcast is well... crap. Just like expected. I have a few questions regarding some odd things I noticed when playing for a few hours with it.

 

1) When I am in youtube  and press the "guide" button on the remote, nothing happens. Surely this is a bug since webos is a multitasking OS, and they made a big marketing thing about switching between apps. I expect youtube to pause and tv guide app to launch, but nothing happens.

 

2) Do I have different picture mode for different apps? I noticed I changed picture mode when watching tv, and then when watching youtube, the picture mode had changed?

 

3) The tv is HDR compatible, but does it not recognize this atumatically by content? I mean, if my wife watches some HDR and forget to set picture mode to HDR she loses the whole experience. Feels wierd.

 

4) How do I enable automatic timeshift? I want the tv to record constantly whatever I am watching. Can I set the buffer size somewhere?

 

5) Is there another way besides shaking the remote to summon the arrow? I have to shake REALLY hard for it to appear, and after a while my arm got tired.

 

We really love this tv set, huge improvement from our old samsung 50" plasma with HD Ready, LOL. Webos is a joy, but I do wish they reduced the overall font size, because things feel too big in the tv guide for example, it is very tight with no margin between anything. The UI need some "air" between stuff. Maybe I can change this somewhere? My wife also felt "hey why is the text so big everywhere".

 

/Cheers
