Enigma2 can:
Unlimited number of simultaneous recordings.
Streaming (Intranet and Internet)
Softcam (for pay-TV card) <= Alternative: support for "Unicam" etc.
NAS instead of USB HDD.
Unencrypted recordings.

No.

Enigma2 can:
Unlimited number of simultaneous recordings. - webOS, no
Streaming (Intranet and Internet), webOS, yes Intranet especially if you run a Plex Media Server, there is DLNA support in webOS, YMMV.  Internet, well it depends on what you want to stream, if it is Flash based or anything esoteric then no, but the browser is not designed for consuming content.  See elsewhere on the forum for more information.
Softcam (for pay-TV card) <= Alternative: support for "Unicam" etc. If it runs over a specific channel then yes, if it requires specific software or hardware interface then it is unlikely.
NAS instead of USB HDD.  Not sure what you are actually asking in this question, if you mean will it read from a NAS then the answer is possibly depending on make, model, software install etc.  Running a Plex Media Server is the best method of streaming media to webOS.
Unencrypted recordings. - webOS, no

Hope this answers your questions more fully.

OK, what is the artificial limit for recordings?
I think, I don't need "10" or "8" or "6".
But 3 or 4 or 5 could be possible.
Two recordings, one viewing, and 1 streaming are four "recordings".


I mean that I will use a NAS intead of USB-HDD for recordings.

"Unencrypted recordings. - webOS, no


Also free not encrypted Channels?
For example, "Das Erste HD", "ZDF HD", "WDR HD", BBC One HD", ITV HD" etc. are not encrypted

Encyrpting not encrypted channels, thats nutty. Freaky TV set manufacturers. Movie studios, TV stations have not the legal power to say "you have to encrypt!".
 Only pay tv provider are dependent from movie studios. Encyrpting their channels and encrypting in their boxes.
And also Sony as a paranoid movie studio is "nutty" with their TVs. Sony is a movie studio, but NOBODY will record tv streams with a sony for illegal internet downloads.
There are existing enough set-top-boxes or TV cards for PC to do that. Sony (and LG...) could save the recordings without encryption, without a "risk" for the profits of the movie studios or tv networks (CBS series etc..).


I need "Plex" for streaming TV from LG TV to smartphone or tablet?!? Not with a App from LG or other private app-coder? Not with webinterface in a browser? Like "webif" in "Enigma2".

Is streaming with transcoding possible?
Transcoding from full tv resolution to a small data stream (for example from 12Mbit/s HD to 1Mbit/s SD or 320x...) for viewing over Internet.
That is possible with the modern Enigma2 set-top-boxes with "Transcoding" function for streaming.
Before "transcoding", it was possible to send the stream to a pc with "VLC", and VLC transcode the stream for internet.
This would be OK. The PC is runnig 24/7. Because, I use it as NAS for TV-Recordings.

      On an LG CX 55, two minutes into episode 4 -- "The Tomb" -- of the series Moon Knight on Disney+ there is a scene with statuettes in niches each lit by an oil lamp. As the flames flicker, dark blotches jump around some of the niche walls.
      These are certainly unintended artifacts.
      Can someone confirm wether this is a CX (only) issue?

      Hi people,
       
      Recently bought one 49LF6350 and one 43LF6350 and the two models have the same problem, whenever I try to open an application, informs me that I have to update (required update, you must update this app to launch it. the update may cause data to be stored deleted.), and when I try to update, it gives an error message (application has not Been instaled. try again). It happens to apps also store to at new install. what may be occurring?
       
      software version: 3:03:04
      WebOS TV version: 2.0.2-3928 (behive-badlands)
       
      thanks.

      The first week of June, which presents International Children’s Day (June 1) and World Environment Day (June 5), reminded us of the importance of caring for our world and its children. To properly commemorate these universal holidays and live up to LG’s steadfast commitment to CSR activities that inspire positive change, LG Kazakhstan enlisted the help of 40 children from the Almaty Regional Orphanage to make a difference in their own backyard, and hopefully learn while having heaps of fun in the process.

      The enthusiastic children selected which trees they wanted to plant in the garden, and now fifty apple, plum, apricot, cherry and pear trees are growing there and will eventually provide fresh fruit on their doorstep. Plant specialists were also on site to teach the kids which practices lead to the richest harvest and greenest environment. What’s more, to commemorate International Children’s Day, every hard-working child received a memorable souvenir as a reminder of the amazing work they did that day.

      LG Kazakhstan champions sustainable development and social responsibility through the implementation of environmental practices and charity events that improve the quality of life for locals. Recent initiatives such as LG Blood Donations Day, various CSR educational lectures for students and LG Prima Nota Fest ­­– a nationwide classical music contest for children – demonstrate LG’s tireless efforts towards creating a better life for all.

      A company must fulfill its environmental and social responsibilities to nurture a flourishing ecosystem that benefits all. Introducing technologies that minimize its carbon footprint during manufacturing and implementing inclusive solutions are deeply embedded in LG’s core value, and the company will never falter when it comes to innovating new solutions that help solve the world’s technological and social issues.

      After 70 years on the throne, the extraordinary popularity of Queen Elizabeth II did not go unnoticed during Britain’s four-day Platinum Jubilee extravaganza that took place the first weekend of June. To get ready for the festivities, LG hosted a virtual LG SIGNATURE event in advance as a part of the luxury brand’s ‘LG SIGNATURE Hosts’ experiences.

      Hosted at the end of May, the event comprised of two interactive Zoom sessions in partnership with acclaimed British chef , who is described by renowned critic and presenter as “the kind of chef who only comes along once or twice in a decade.”

      Ahead of the session, guests were gifted a luxurious picnic hamper which included dishes curated by Denney, a bottle of Chapel Down English sparkling wine and an LG SIGNATURE branded champagne stopper. Denney’s menu choices were inspired by traditional British delicacies and favorites of the Royal Family, with items such as mutton salami, Isle of Wight tomato panzanella, Royal Warranted Kings’ Caviar and a traditional cherry tea cake with whipped vanilla cream that Denney’s grandmother used to make for the Spencer family at .

      During the session, Denney talked the media through the creation of both the panzanella salad and the cherry tea cake, while showcasing the unique features of the LG SIGNATURE Wine Cellar and LG SIGNATURE Refrigerator that were set up in the kitchen.

      LG SIGNATURE products are known for delivering high-end, unparalleled performance. Offering the precise temperature- and humidity-controlled conditions needed for optimal preservation, the LG SIGNATURE Wine Cellar is the ideal home solution for keeping wines of all types at their best. And, with the innovative InstaView feature, LG SIGNATURE Refrigerators allow users to see inside the easy access compartment without opening the door, helping food stay fresh longer.
      Empowered with advanced technology, stylish design and hygiene-promoting features, today’s luxury products represent innovation at its finest.
