webOS Open Source?

1 post in this topic

So, HP decided to open source webOS...what will this mean for webOS?

I can see some developers saying thnk you and rejoicing, along with some die hard fans...but....I can't help top feel that this is HP's way of saying, "Sorry for screwing up", "We're not spending too much time developing anymore", "see what you guys can do with it, we're moving on, and writing off".

We have to wait and see at what level HP is going to support or back the platform after it open's it up.

What the hope I think all loyal webOS fans have is that some OEM's get a hold of it...like HTC, Amazon, etc...Then we'll have something to really talk about!

      Hallo,
      i am trying to update my LG 55UF850T to webOS 3.x due to UHDTV and HDR compatibility. 
      Update via menu not possible. It shows 2.2.1 as the most current version.
      I downloaded 3.x via the website and copied it to a USB stick as mentioned in the guideline.
      Now the problem: USB stick is recognized as a Smart Share device but the firmware and folder do not trigger the update process.
       
      Question: is there a  technical guideline on how to proceed, e.g. Via the hidden Support menu? Any other ideas or procedures that I can trigger?
      please advice.

      Dear all,
      Have my 2 month old LG E6 connected to my amp using ARC via HDMI and i used that to send the audio from Amazon/Netflix/Youtube apps on the TV back to my amp.
      The audio is fine for everything but YouTube, which is out of sync.
      I've tried using the audio sync adjustment on the TV but can't get it right despite the adjustment.
      I've heard others on other forums complain of the same issue with this app.
      Is there somewhere I can raise an issue with LG for this problem?
      I wonder how often the youtube WebOS app is updated, maybe a new one is due soon?
       
      Thanks all!

      UPDATING YOUR FIRMWARE
       
      The firmware that powers your LG Ultra HD 4K Smart TV with webOS should be updated from time to time to enhance your experience and improve its operation. Thankfully, this can be done easily and quickly, right at home.
      Watch this quick video to learn more. Or follow the easy steps below to get started.
       
       
      HOW OFTEN DO I NEED TO UPDATE MY FIRMWARE?
      Firmware updates don't happen frequently, so you should be fine checking for updates every other month.
      HOW DO I CHECK FOR, AND DOWNLOAD, AVAILABLE FIRMWARE UPDATES?
      Before you do anything, make sure you have an Ethernet cord connected directly from your router to your television. Wireless Internet connections are not reliable enough for firmware updates.
      Use this diagram if you need help getting set up:

      ONCE YOUR TV HAS A WIRED CONNECTION, DO THE FOLLOWING:
      Press the MENU Click SYSTEM SETTINGS Then ABOUT Then SYSTEM UPDATES You'll be advised that your system is currently up to date or requested to select CHECK NOW for the latest update. If a new version is available, it downloads automatically. FIRMWARE UPDATES WILL ALSO UPDATE LG ULTRA HD 4K SMART TV AND LG APPS AT THE SAME TIME.

      I have had my 55" 4k tv for just over a year now and am finding that it plays less and less MP4 files. I believe it may be because they are h265 files. Is it really hard to update the TV. If I had known that it will not play recent files I would have considered buying a different TV. It also seems to have a problem playing some MKV files as well.
