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?

      I have a LG 43QNED756RA AEK Smart TV 
      If I go to General -> Programmes -> Programme Manager -> Edit All Programmes, I only get the options to Lock/Unlock and Skip/Restore
      So I cannot Move or Edit Program Numbers or Delete
      Any help and comments would be appreciated

      Is there a Twitter App for LG webOS? I can't find it in the LG Content Store on my LG smart OLED TV.  I can open Twitter in the browser app, and once it raised a prompt "It's better in the App" but that has not returned. 

      Web searches on the topic come up empty.  Either the app is there so nobody asks about it, OR people are really incurious!

      The Wi-Fi module in my LG TV, roughly 5 or six years old, (WebOS UJ6300) is apparently broken.  I am looking for a solution cheaper and maybe more interesting than having the TV repaired.  There are devices which will pick up Wi-Fi, convert it to ethernet, and deliver it to the male  part of an ethernet port.  In the past I have used such a device to provide Wi-Fi support to a desktop computer which did not have Wi-Fi support but did have an ethernet port.  I forget the particulars, but it did work just fine. But a smart TV with Web 0S is not a desktop or laptop computer.  My concern is how to provide the SSID and password to the device.  My vague recollection is that such a device in a laptop or desktop computer can trigger a dialogue which requests the SSID and password.  But will web OS provide such a dialogue?  If I recall correctly, wired ethernet connections do not require SSIDs or passwords.
       
      Thanks,  Bob

      I have problems with one of my WebOS TVs which looks like a speed problem, but when I do a speed check on my iPhone from just a few feet away the connection speed looks fine.  Thanks,  Bob
