Is there a better alternative to the broken multi-view app?


Pier Castonguay

Question

I have a LG OLED C8 with the latest firmware, it should support the latest and greatest webOS features.
The multi-view app is seriously disappointing:

* Only have one mode (side-by-side) which is wasting a lot of screen space. No support for PiP (picture-in-picture) that is usually the de facto mode in way less expensive TVs.

* Image is zoomed in with about 5% of the screen missing around every borders.

* Brightness seems to be broken, everything is darker as if the black level doesn't follow the settings set on the HDMI inputs.

* Unused background space is filled with an ugly light gray that is very tedious and no way to change it to black.

* Apps outside HDMI inputs can't be set in a view.

* HDR content can't be set in a view (this is understandable).

Is there an alternative in the app store? Any way to petition LG to update this app for additional features?

      Hey there,  I have had a  OLED55B6P for ten months and I love it but

      I have a problem all a sudden, just today it starts to show a black screen with fire works every minutes if I don't press a button on the remote.

      I have no eco mode on, no power save modes on, TV firmwire is up to date, and tried turning off on and on the tv.

      anyone know how to fix?

      I've got my ThinQ and Google Home apps and Google Home speakers set up to turn off my LG C1.  But they won't turn it on, I guess because the TV isn't listening for commands when off.   I expected that enabling these Settings|General|Devices|TV Management|Quick Start+ Settings|General|Devices|External Devices|TV On With Mobile|Turn on via Wi-Fi would do it, but it did not.
      OMG I just discovered that Alexa turns on the TV...and I never even had to open let alone set it up in the Alexa app!

      I want to control my C1 with my Google Home speakers, but my Android LG ThinQ app is not sending the correct info to my Android Google Home app to link the ThinQ service.  
      When I try, the error message says "No devices were found in your LG ThinQ account".  However, the ThinQ app is signed into my account and successfully controlling my C1.
      Google Home support and I think the issue is with the ThinQ app.

      link hidden, please login to view says this should work.  My LG support agent told me it's not supported; I'm guessing she was new.

      Recently my LG C1 has been pausing on its own and going back to the profile selection screen while using native apps. This issue occurs while using Netflix, Disney+, Paramount+, etc.  I tried using my Firestick and it kept pausing my program. I tried a hard reset and that fixed the problem for 2 days before it started again with Disney+. 
      I need a fix for this issue ASAP.

      Is there any way to delete the preinstalled apps?   I particularly hate the "LG Channels" app because if I were to click the Antennae input inadvertently, something on one of those channels could cause burn in.
