Philips HUE Sync app

Recommended Posts

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?

No more need to buy a Philips Ambilight TV if LG would implement a Hue Sync app. I sure do hope that there is no restrictive agreement on that subject between Philips and LG.

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.

Seconded! It will be really useful to have as a native app an ambilight and/or hue sync app on the WebOS app market, and it will increase the value of the WebOS devices in front of their competitors (you can play it on Android tvs).

      I just joined Amazon Prime. When attempting to watch a movie on Amazon prime video it says I need to update Google Chrome on my LG smart TV which has WebOs, not Google Chrome.
      How can I watch Amazon Prime videos on my LG TV (made in 2016)?

      Hello!
      Videoplayer on my TV OLED55C6V has two modes of folders content display: as a list of files with detailed information and thumbnail and as a previews of files with big cover and file name.
      My DLNA-storage contains a cover for each movie file. A cover has the same file name with its movie except of jpg-extension. As I know DLNA-server provides two variants of each picture - full size original picture and downscaled thumbnail (160x160 on MiniDLNA and it is hardcoded). And when I browse the folders of DLNA-storage on my TV I can see covers in list mode and in preview mode. And they looks like something dreadful on my TV because as I discovered TV videoplayer takes a thumbnail from DLNA-server (160x160 max in my case) and crops it to aspect ratio 4x3 and upscales it for showing as a thumbnail or as a cover. Actual displayed cover size in the second case is about 400x300 or even more on UHD-display, so a resulting picture looks like Minecraft.
      But, for example, Windows Mediaplayer displays covers from DLNA properly taking a full size picture (not a thumbnail) and downscaling it to required actual size if necessary.
      Is there any method to make TV use full size picture and downscale it properly for thumbnail and for cover separately or to do something else at all for seeing nice and smooth thumbnails and covers during DLNA folders browsing on UHD-display?
      Thank you in advance

      I have connected by Apple TV on my LG C9 OLED TV. It is connected via HDMI. The TV is connected to Onkyo AV via ARC. While playing a Dolby Atmos enables movie, the AV receiver does not recongnize the output. But while connected the Apple TV directly to the AV, Dolby Atmos gets enabled. Though the HDMI Audio out is set to Bitstream why the AV unable to play Dolby Atmos. Please let me know if I need to make any adjustment in the settings.
