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 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?

      webOS updated, I think to 2023, on my C2 a couple of days ago. Since then the News option on the Sky News app no longer works, instead timing out. The Weather and Climate options still work, though.
      I have deleted and reloaded the Sky News app, but the problem remains.
      Does anybody have any suggestions of what I might try to get this working again, or is this something for LG, or Sky, to fix?

      In the specifications of this LaserTV it is shown that WebOS 6.0 should be installed on this device.
      The latest Device Firmware Version is 3.01.02 and i am missing the RTL+ App (Germany) which should be available with WebOS 6.0 
      So any info when there will be a "real" WebOS 6.0 available on the Cinebeam HU915EQE?
