Almost a year since I have my LG C1 still no Google Assistant or Smart home assistant support for Philippines. It's included in the website and marketing materials, but LG left me hanging until now.
Definitely a non-smart home friendly TV.
While watching YouTube on my WebOS TV, I very frequently pause the picture and I do not like the picture dimming the second i hit pause. It makes an extremely unpleasant experience when the remote requires 6 actions to go from 'pause' to 'play'.
Step 1) push 'pause' (screen goes dim)
Step 2) 'up arrow' (to get rid of dimming)
Step 3) 'up arrow' a second time (to finish getting rid of dimming)
Step 4) push 'play' (screen goes dim)
Steps 5 +6) repeat steps 2+3 (screen is now bright and playing)
6 steps? 2 steps is the ONLY logical number. 1) pause and 2) play (actually just pause for both pausing and play but we'll leave that for now) 6 steps makes for a VERY unpleasant viewing experience.
Yes I am aware the screen will return after about 3 seconds. (unpleasant/frustrating)
Yes I am aware that I can use the 180 degree arrow key to reduce the number of steps to only 4. There are 2 problems with this method. 1) Its still 2 steps too many. 2) If i wait a split second too long, the screen will return to bright screen at the same moment I push the button and now that 180 degree arrow button is programmed to return you to the main menu. This makes it even more aggravating because I now have to go into the history menu to restart the video.
Can someone please tell me how to eliminate the auto dimming? If its not possible, can the webOS programmers just reprogram the system to stop doing this. Yes, its a first world problem, but when you hit 'pause' as much as i do, honestly want to return the TV. I can't take how poorly it was designed. It makes no sense. thank you for your help.

No matter how times times I remove the LG Internet (XUMO) channels, a few of them come back every day. After a week, I have to flip through about twenty of the LG Internet channels to get to what I want to watch. I have an 86" UP8770. My wife won't even watch the TV because of how how annoying those LG Internet channels are. I have repeatedly reset the TV. I have left it unplugged all night. I have searched for answers online and spoken to LG on the phone. Nothing helps. I have removed all the LG Internet channels at least 50 times. Every day a few of them come back. I purchased the TV at Costco about 5 months ago. I really wish I could return it. The LG Channels are a deal breaker for me.
