How Do I Customise the Screensaver?

Question

Hi all,

 

I have several LG webOS UH656T  installed at my office.  As part of complying to LEED certification, we mainly use it as the primary projection device, migrating from DLP Projectors previously. 

Everything works fine except the screensaver feature; is there way I could turn it off or change it with a custom wallpaper? if we can't, is there to work around it by displaying other type of images via an app perhaps?

 

Thanks in advance.

Wife and I saw the photos and screen savers and figured, of course this can be customized, what a horrible feature tease for your customers otherwise.  Didn't see it, checked Google and saw this thread so posting hoping to let LG know another potential repeat customer is asking for this.

When I turn off my tv and set top box (Foxtel) after a while the tv restarts itself and looks for a signal. That’s when the horrible screen saver images start up. They will rotate for hours until someone turns on the set tops box to watch the tv.  Now I find these images are BURNING IN to the TV. I can see in blue coloured vision the mountains burnt into the background. I cannot turn the TV off in a way to prevent the tv restarting and showing the screensavers photos. Please help me.

It's funny that everyone ascribes the inability to change the wallpaper selection to negligence on LG's part, but on OLEDs it serves a very specific purpose of protecting the screen. The pictures aren't randomly chosen by LG, they're intended to provide balanced coverage to all parts of the screen and all of the pixels. There is no way for the OS to vet the pictures people would choose to replace them with. Invariably some yobs would choose a single picture, probably even one with a single very bright spot like the sun or a streetlight, and use that as their only background, creating burn-in on their sets that they would invariable blame on the TV.

Well, as I said a few days ago:

If the issue is that the set may burn in if you put in 5 copies of the same image or something, as some have brought up, then they could simply add a disclaimer. They seem to have no problem doing so under the Screen Saver option, as you can see.

In addition, we aren't stupid. And LG needs to stop assuming we are. We are all well aware that the Rick and Morty watching geniuses over at LG HQ picked specific photos so that our OLED sets would not burn in. Unfortunately, they neglected to consider the possibility that our corneas might. I think I'm going to start seeing these wallpapers in my nightmares, if someone doesn't find a way to remove them.

You have been misled, check with marketing if you want to know why the photos were chosen, not engineering....

Hi,

Please remember that this is a user-to-user forum, LG has no official status here.  There is the link to LG's official feedback form if you wish to make use of it:

Made a video where I explain the issue. And I put link in the description to this threat. Hopefully they put it on the backlog if we have enough reactions to draw their attention.

    • Question: files on USB device shown as ._xxx.jpg

      To have a picture  show on my new LG OLED55B87LC I've connected an external USB 3.0 hard disk (formatted with MS-DOS FAT32 on my iMac) that I've filled with hundreds of pictures from my Fotos App.  But when I open this drive on the TV the jpg pictures (numbered 1.jpg to 999.jpg) show up as ._1.jpg to ._999.jpg. When I scroll down at the end the list then the real jpg`s appear. So it looks like there's a copy of each file on this drive starting with  ._  ?? And all of them can't be shown on the TV - they look faulty ?  I've tried out with another drive / USB stick - just the same problem. Does anyone experience the same problems ? Do USB devices have to be formatted in a special way ? Any idea how to solve this ? 

      Ah - and beside this strange thing - is it normal that it last that long for the system of the TV to create all the thumbnail pictures to show on the TV ? When I scroll through a long list of pictures it lasts always a few seconds until the icons of the pictures really show the contents. This is really annoying because it makes the feature useless if I need several minutes to find a picture I'm searching for. Why is it that slow ? Is the USB connection only with 2.0 Standard ? Or is it a performance problem of WebOS ?

    • Reporting mechanism for regressions in webOS 4.10.05

      Is there a mechanism for reporting regressions in 4.10.05? After installing 4.10.05 on my 65" C8 I have a number of regressions with youtube / netflix and DVD playback. I exchanged the TV to Costco and have remained at webOS 3.0 with no issues. I worked on Mac OS X for 15 years at Apple and I would suspect that LG has a mechanism in place to report issues.
