WebOs 4.5 Multi-view?


Rolando

Question

Hello everyone,

I just got the 50UM7500BSP TV, so i know that the webOS 3.0 and 3.5 has the function of Multi-view, where you can see two entrys of video at the same time spliting the screen.

So my answer is the webOS 4.5 has that function? because i cant do it on my TV (well know is up to date at webOS 4.7). I ask to the LG support and they told me that yes it has it, but i cant find it, i dont know if its a app now or what.

Please help me, i need this function.

Hi all, I have my LG UJ701V with software 05.80.50 and webOS 3.8.0 and I don't have multiview. I had an idea that in the beginning I had this option, but apparently not. It's possible to install any app or webos to have multi view? Even if it's live tv and hdmi as @Timsaid doesn't work. In the home button and app's I don't have that option....

Answer from LG was they want to check if more customers need this function. Now I have 3 OLEDs at home.

C8 HDMI + HDMI possible 

C9 TV + HDMI possible 

CX no multiview integrated 

i think it’s a dead end for this function after the evolution from C8 to CX.

That's a shame. I guess I'll write them as well then, and get an HDMI switch or something with the feature. I recently started using mine as a monitor for my Mac and PC, which works great so far except that I would like to be able to see both side-by-side rather than having to switch channels back and forth.

Thanks for the update!

Is this TV hardware thing OR WebOS Version thing? Why did they mess this up?

Whats the consensus now on Web OS 5.2/.3?

What does LG even mean when they say they are waiting to gauge “customer interest”?   What is their technology that replaces or improves on  multi-view/picture-in-picture? Purchasing a second monitor?  That IS a solution, but quite a wasteful and expensive one.  My second monitor will NOT be an LG. PIP is such an expected feature I neglected to check for it.  I also did not check for a volume button on the remote.   There is no reason for customer interest to go away on either of these “features”.

With C9 TV+HDMI is possible, with CX you don’t have Multiview anymore.

if you need 2 HDMI, C8 or older is the way to go

Dang! 

Given that all TVs are going to give more Digital Real Estate - Bigger Sizes and 4K / 8K screens, it would make sense for them to give users WAYS to use it/ Multi Task the Multi Views 

What about for Non OLED LG TVs and Multi View?

      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?

      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.

      Hi, I'm curious if anyone else is seeing this annoying new behaviour.
      I have my SKY Q box on HDMI1 and have become accustomed to switching back from Netflix (or any other app for that matter) by having HDMI1 assigned to button "1" using the Quick Access feature.  In the last week though, this feature has stopped working properly. If I am in Netflix and I press the "1" button, nothing happens (as expected). If instead I hold down the "1" button to switch to SKY I get a pop up that says this: "Do you want to add Netflix to [Quick Access 1]?".   If I then hold down the "0" button, the 3x3 grid "EDIT QUICK ACCESS" pop-up appears and I can clearly see my SKY Q/HDMI 1 in the top left grid position (button "1")!!!
      If I then switch via the Home button to HDMI1 and remove HDMI1 from Quick Access (via the  EDIT QUICK ACCESS pop up), I can then re-add it by holding down 1 or from within the pop-up. Now, if I go into Netflix and then hold down 1, my TV does (correctly) switch to HDMI1. Hurrah! If however I turn my TV off and back on, then go to Netflix, then hold down "1", I am back to square one with the question "Do you want to add Netwflix to [Quick Access 1]?"......Grrrr!!!
      I have tried switching the TV off at the wall, leaving for 10 seconds and repowering, which doesn't fix the problem (I don't believe WebOS reboots when you do this). LG appear to have made it a practical impossibility to reboot WebOS via anything other than a factory reset which I don't really want to do as it'll take me too long to get all my settings back to where I have them now. Some blogs suggest that the "User Licence agreement" setting can be changed which forces a reset from within the General tab but I don't see this on my TV (guessing that WebOS interface has changed).
      Anyone have any ideas? 
      Rob.

      It starts ok but when I select a program it just sits there with the 'wheel' turning. It works ok on my phone and ipad. Have tried updating tv operating system and iview app but they seem to be at the latest version. Anyone else having problems?
