Screensaver Options


Question

Hello. I installed an app on my LG C9 called ArtHola. It is a gallery app that changes chosen artwork on the screen. Unfortunately, LG's fireworks screen saver comes on after a minute. Is there a way to disable that? Or is there a way to make that ArtHola app send a signal to the TV to keep the fireworks from coming on? I know that when I have my Nvidia Shield TV's screensaver come on, the TV never interrupts that.

@eespinosa64 The Shield TV is HDMI cable connected, so the actual TV will be acting differently when that is active, as it will be sending an "active stream" to the TV all the time, even if a static image.  However, when you have a TV APP active in the WebOS, a static artwork image will be detected by the screensaver timer. If you can configure ArtHola to display a changing set of images, that changes each one in just under the minute timer, you might stop the internal screensaver kicking in. If that does not work, reach out to the ArtHola developers on their web-site, to see if they have a suggestion.

Thank you for your reply.  The ArtHola app changes images about every 12 seconds. That is still not enough to keep the internal screensaver for coming on, unfortunately. A simple option on LG's part could have prevented this.

      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?

      I have a win10 HTPC with all my media files on it. It's connected via HDMI to my home theatre amp which is connected to my LG tv via HDMI. If I'm watching a local stored movie or listening to my music collection on my HTPC it plays on the home theatre speakers and the TV just acts as a computer monitor. If I'm watching tv the audio is via the internal speakers or connected sound bar.
       Something has happened and now whenever I try to play music the LG tv automatically overides the amp and plays the music through the tv with its media server. How do I disable this function please?? I don't really want the tv to perform any media serving functions.

      So LG has put webOS on TVs, projectors, and now cars with webos auto. Does anyone thing LG will ever produce a webos powered smartphone or tablet? I know samsung has tried with tizen and it was only with the palm pre 2 and touchpad from HP that we saw webos on these types of devices. Just curious on what everyone thingks. Here's what webos used to look like..

      Hey guys.
      TL;DR How do I save screen captures to an external HDD?
       
      I am new here. I recently bought an LG 43UJ6307, webOS 3.5. More than happy with it, except for the fact that there is literally nowhere to find accurate information. The TV has the screen capture feature and automatically saves the capture in the internal storage.
      I e-mailed LG to ask how to copy it from the internal storage to the external storage and they said it is not possible. Although, they said I can choose where I save the screen captures (on an external support or internal storage). My question is: How do I do this? How do I choose to save the screen captures to my external HDD of flash drive? Thanks very much.

      For some reason, on my TV, random phones have the ability to prompt a pop-up asking if they can connect to my TV via wi-fi direct. This is, obviously, quite annoying while I'm in the middle of using my TV for something.
      I've never accepted access for any of these phones, and they're not on my wifi network. 
      My TV is a 43um7300pu and I'm running 5.00.02, which is the current software. 
      There appears to be no setting to disable connections via wifi direct in the menus.
      Is there anything I can do stop these annoying popups?
