Philips HUE Sync app

YES. PLEASE ADD THIS!

I can currently do "free" or non-DRM content using Hue Sync from a PC but it would be a HUGE feature to add this natively to WebOS. Application needs to send information about the displayed colors on a given area of the screen to the Hue Bridge over WiFi link. Hue Bridge would then tell the Hue Lights how and when to change color values. 

As there is no way to output video from the TV, the content providers should not have any DRM concerns. This would be the absolute cleanest solution and at least in the US market and would funnel so many buyers towards LG units. 

Summary of wish:

  • Feature to be added to the "all settings" menu somewhere under display
  • Selection enables the TV to run Hue Sync software
  • TV then connects to the Hue Bridge on customer premises
  • Whatever content is displayed on the TV screen from whatever source (streaming, cable box, etc.) is analyzed by Hue Sync software for color/placement information
  • TV sends color and screen area information in real time to Hue Bridge
  • Hue Bridge tells Hue Lights the appropriate color adjustments to make

Would it be possible to get some kind of low-resolution image of the current output of the TV?
I.e. a picture of 16 x 9 pixels with the correct averages would be more than enough to build a DIY ambient light.

PS: I do understand that outputting the image is not possible with the DRM in place. But a downscaled version may be possible?

Or LG could just ignore this feature and wonder why their sales drop when competition releases this feature. That is not a very easy to implement feature and the first non-Phillips TV producer that does that will have a clear marketing advantage.

I think this couldn't possible cause on the Philips TVs don't use a software to do this feature, but only WiFi enlaced with the HUE bridge and iOS App.

And it's only works in selecteds Philips Ambilight TV models. I have an Philips Ambilght 42 5000 series and works fine with HUE bridge from first and second generation, and would be very good working with my LG Oled 55B7P too.

But, how I told before, I believe it's not possible.

I hope my information can will be usefull.

      Hi, whenever I turned on my PS5 in the past on my TV  I would get a prompt in the bottom middle to press a button to automatically go to the HDMI channel, now I still get a notification in the top right saying “HDMI 1 is available” but it doesn’t seem clickable.

      Has this been caused by a software update? I did also set up a sound bar in the HDMI ARC port recently and wondering if it could have anything to do with that?

      After updating to the latest web browser with new UI, closed caption subtitles on ALL websites video including Youtube.com disappears every 2-3mins. Video continues to play without subs and subs will re-appear if I move the magic remote but disappears again after 3mins.

      I have a couple of LG OLEDs in shared spaces, with external speakers, one via optical and the other via analog jack (confusingly named headphones). Whenever bluetooth headphones are used and then disconnected, the TV reverts to "internal" terrible audio. For non-technical people this is permanent. Do I have to train everyone to select the device from the long list or can I set a default?

      Hi,
      I have a Sony sound bar connected to my LG OLED CX via eARC. It was working fine. One day suddenly the sound bar stopped responding to the incoming audio from the TV. I tried all the ways - (PCM, Auto, Pass Through), TV reset, Additional settings eARC (on/off). But nothing worked. Escalated it to the LG CC. And the LG service representative advises me to change the mother board of the TV. I am wondering what went wrong with my 9 months old TV. Though it is still under warranty I dont want to go for a change of a component (if there is a work around). Sound bar is working perfectly with all other external devices. Awaiting for a solution or atleast a valid reason.
