I spotted this useful article for those who feel they need to tweak (optimise) the picture settings, but are not sure what do do:
link hidden, please login to view Obviously any experts on here should chime in with their findings or advice, especially if geared up to LG TV models.
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.
OK, so what does it take to have full Chromecast support in LG TVs (webOS)?
a. Either builtin support.
b. Via webOS app.
The goal / use is simple as any other Chromecast device / TV: be able to say to "hey Google, play this video/music from service-X to LG-TV".
Looking forward to good news and your thoughts.

I have been looking high and low for a TV that allows picture in picture with two different inputs, so I can have the Playstation 4 and regular TV on the same screen. Finally found LG TV's with WebOS3.0 and MULTI-VIEW and thought my prayers were answered! I went out and bought a 49" LG 49UJ6300 today, with WebOS 3.5(!) so it's even better I thought. Got it home, hooked it up and it was beautiful. Only to discover that there was NO Multiview! Apparently it is not supported on the 6300. What the hell? The older 6030 49" had it, with WebOS 3.0 !!!? You're supposed to ADD features, not drop them!
Anyone know why they did that? Is it just that 49" version or is multi-view just gone now? That was the one feature I wanted from the damn TV, so I took it back. The older 6030 is out of stock everywhere. I'm so bummed. Nobody makes TV's that can do split-screen. I guess Samsung still does it but they are much more expensive.

I have an LG - 43" Class LED HD Smart webOS TV (Model 43UM6910PUA).
I keep all my videos stored on an external hard drive. When I connect this drive, a SEAGATE Expansion Portable 2TB External Hard Drive HDD (Model STEA2000400), to the USB port (back, side) and go to thumbnail view all I see are generic folders with the titles I have given to them. I do not see any of the "folder.jpg" poster/cover art images which I have in included in every folder together with the video(s) themselves. Why are these folder.jpg images not showing up in thumbnail view? I have no problem on other (older) televisions I have (none of which are LG however). Am I doing something wrong? I have contacted LG support both via email and online chat but have unfortunately not been able to get an answer from them.
I have included an image of the what I mean by generic folders in thumbnail view (see below). Thank you!
