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.

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.

Dear LG team, Are we asking to solve some kind of rocket science here? Is this kind of high end AI requirement? Are you guys even monitoring this thread? If yes, then kindly post your r

Something in the line:

We do acknowledge this feature is important to so many of our customers....
Our developers team is working on these other features.....
We are going to establish a mechanism giving the users to vote for the features they want...
You can see the timeline for next deliveries....
It is not so easy to introduce what you ask because....
We apologize, we informed the product management about this problem but they do not care....

After all the moderators represent the company in the forum.
 

I was not aware that any of the moderators have anything to do with LG, I believed that the forum was run by webOS users for the benefit of other webOS users.   The reason I thought this was because of the legend at the top of every page that says "User to User Support Forum".

I assumed that both LG and webos are registered trademarks that cannon be used without permission from the owner...

If it is as you say, and it probably is, then it is even worse for a company like LG not to back a user forum.

In any case, thanks to the moderators, shame to LG.

This is a band aid solution and not practical or cost effective if you don't have a Chromecast or other streaming box (Roku, etc), but why not connect a Chromecast to your main input. Then you can use the Chromecast features to control the screensaver. etc. I realize this is not practical for most people, but for those of you just using the TV to project to, it would solve your issue.

It would ultimately be nice if you could just copy some pictures or use a thumb drive as the source for the screensaver images though.

Made an account to post on this thread too.

The fact that you can see the photos there in the gallery app but can't delete them or add more is so aggravating! How on earth can I not perform the basic function on my $1000+ TV of customizing the wallpaper? The stock photos just bother me so much. I like to draw my own minimalistic art. I hate the look of this way over-saturated photorealistic garbage.

Worse yet, I can't even download my screenshots from the TV either, making the screenshot feature entirely useless.

WTF LG!?

Anyway, I also noticed the lack of any kind of file browser app, including on the Content Store, so I downloaded the SDK and I'm working on a simple file browser with basic copying/moving, etc. I found the USB drive mount point at /tmp/usb/sda/sda1. Unfortunately, I just can't find those stock photos or screenshots, or actually any .jpg files at all.

Please LG, this has got to be an easy software fix to allow SHUTOFF of  your screensaver!

LG don't want users to be able to turn off the screen saver.  They look at it from the corporate point of view is that long term dis-use of a screen saver could lead to screen burn in, which could lead to law suits from disgruntled users.

George,  that is just nonsense. A blank screen does not cause burn-in. Cheers!

Yes, you are quite correct a blank screen would not cause screen burn, because by definition blank would mean no display, no pixels in the on position.   But why would you want to display a completely blank screen?  If you mean that you have a screen displaying a fixed image then yes there would be depending on the screen technology there is a potential for screen burn.  Cheers!

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 there,
       
      So VLC (via DLNA) does not see LG TV webOS as renderer option.
      Even Windows 7 (via Explorer / Windows Media Player) sees it.
       
      What's special about LG TV webOS DLNA implementation that VLC does not see it?
       
      Thanks,
