Default Launcher Tabs
A few months ago after a firmware update, the one that says "SLING + FreeStream" across the screen on starting sling, each time the tv comes on, and sling was the last item open, it says network error, and if I exit sling loads fine.
It only does this with Sling and my LG tv's. Netflix doesn't do it and my Samsung and Visio don't do it. None of my LG's did until that update. It's like they're trying to go to a site before the TV's network is ready, and no retrying it.
If I go to Netflix then turn off the TV, when I turn it back on Netflix loads just fine with no Error.
I'm resetting these again. I tried that multiple times and it doesn't fix anything. Deleting the Sling app and reloading and updating doesn't help either. This all happens on all 3 of my new LG's.
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!
I noticed since the last update of WebOS, it defaults to a screen with apps along the bottom rather than HDMI1 as before on startup. Even after going into the input settings and selecting HDMI1, it stills defaults to the other screen on startup. When selecting HDMI1 on the inputs screen, it has a red dot in the corner, which I would assumes means that's the selected default. But again, this seems to be ignored this on startup.
Samsung has made fridges with touchscreens before. LG has made fridges with doors that turn transparent to show you the inside. This year at CES 2018, those two ideas are finally merging into one with LG’s new InstaView ThinQ smart refrigerator, which features a 29-inch touchscreen that becomes transparent if users knock on it twice.
LG actually tried this two years ago, with a version called the Smart InstaView Door-in-Door that ran a full version of Windows 10, but it’s not clear that the company ever shipped the Windows version.
This version uses the touchscreen to manage your food using LG’s webOS software and Amazon’s Alexa, which will let you tag food with virtual stickers and expiration dates and get automatic reminders when things are running low or about to go bad. There’s also a wide-angle panoramic camera on the inside of the fridge that will let you remotely view your fridge while you’re out and about to check and see if you’re actually out of milk or not.
Unfortunately, the only image that LG has shared showing the fridge is a low-resolution shot on its YouTube page banner, but it seems that you’ll be able to still use the screen while it’s translucent, allowing you to tag food directly in a vaguely augmented reality-esque move.
LG is also touting how all of its ThinQ kitchen gadgets can talk to each other to make kitchen tasks easier. So your ThinQ fridge can talk to your EasyClean oven, which will help you cook food through step-by-step instructions from the recipe app from your fridge. Then, your EasyClean oven can notify your QuadWash dishwasher about the kind of meal you cooked, so it can more efficiently select a wash cycle for that dish. Of course, all this requires spending thousands of dollars replacing every appliance in your kitchen (and if this all works as well as LG claims it does), but it’s still an intriguing vision of a Jetsons-like future utopia.
No price or release date for the InstaView ThinQ refrigerator or any of LG’s other new appliances have yet been announced.

When we first got the OLED55C9 TV four weeks ago all of the WebOS launcher tabs were showing in the launcher list. When rearranging the tabs they were deleted by clicking on the “x”. When we realized what was happening we stopped but not before deleting all but 5 of the default LG setting tabs. The “ Today tab, My Channel tab, Live TV, Smart Share, Screen Share, Device connector, Web Browser, and User Guide“ are no longer listed in the Launcher. We tried a Factory Reset which did not bring any of them back. Anyone know if they are retrievable or gone forever?.
