I currently have webos ver 04.70.45 lgwebostv uj670v 1. Under certain circumstances the TV will turn itself on during the night. After much testing it would appear that if a schedule program is due during the early hours while the TV is off it will turn itself on waking everyone. For example set a reminder for a program that starts at 11pm. Then if you turn your TV off at 10.30pm the TV will turn itself back on later. I suggest that there should be an additional check prior to the reminder going off to see if the TV is on. if it is not on then don't action the reminder thus not turning the TV on. twice now have been woken during the night to find the TV on. please fix in next release and advise. 2. Also, can you add a page in settings. general. about TV. upgrade. what's been updated. a histotical list of changes. this would be ideal as it would advise both bug fixes and new features. 3. Also the favourites feature is very hard to organise. For example if I add a new channel to favourites1 it will go to the bottom of the list. However the swap feature is useless if you want to move this channel to say the second position. This is a problem because you are expecting us to swap 2 channels when on reality we need to move 1 channel from the bottom to say the 3rd slot WITHOUT changing any others. We don't want to swap the channel in position 2 with that in last position.
I received last week an LG SM8100, and I am trying to enable/enter the service menu to adjust some settings (Store region mainly, and to see few other things).
I know the Magic remote included with LG SM8100 don't let us enable service menu, so I got three different remote controls (1 LG non magic, 1 compatible LG, 1 "universal") and I tried with the three of them but i have not been successfull...
I tried pressing Menu Button + Button under TV panel during some seconds, but nothing happen (except the tv rebooted), then I tried OK Button + Button under TV panel but nothing happen unless the live tv banned flashing...
I am a bit lost, may someone help me with this please ?
Thank You in advance
With today's announcement from LG on open sourcing webOS OSE, LG's Chief Technology officer said , “webOS has come a long way since then and is now a mature and stable platform ready to move beyond TVs.”
So what does this actually mean? We know LG has put webOS on a smart fridge and projector, but could other appliances or possibly even phones be on the list? Maybe not directly for LG but what they probably want to see, is the usage of webOS in other technology and form factors with a common tie-back to LG. HP tried to do the same with the Open webOS Project that didn;t go anywhere and the domain is not coming up online today. Open WebOS reborn as LuneOS for mobile devices which also saw little adoption.
With this latest release, does LG have the push to make it something HP could not? That's the real question and only time will tell. In teh end, it's all about users for an OS to survive even though there are plenty of nostalgic Palm and HP webOS fans keeping their fingers crossed for a webOS powered smart phone or tablet.
