Hey everyone, I've been using my LG WebOS TV for some time now, and there's a small but impactful change I'd love to see. Currently, when the TV is turned on without an HDMI input, it defaults to displaying a wallpaper. It's not aesthetically pleasing, it's a bit of an inconvenience for users like me who primarily use the TV's smart features.My suggestion is to include an option that allows the TV to boot directly into the Home screen, displaying all the available apps and streaming options right away. This would streamline the user experience, making it faster and easier to access the services we use most.Would love to hear the community's thoughts on this. Cheers!

Portable, Durable and Conveniently Adjustable, the Unique LG StanbyME Go
Presents a Refreshingly New User Experience
SEOUL, Aug. 25, 2023 — LG Electronics (LG) announces the global rollout of its latest Lifestyle Screen, the unique LG StanbyME Go (model 27LX5). The innovative new model boasts a 27-inch touch display and a 20W four-channel speaker system cleverly integrated into a stylish and sturdy carrying case. Building on the portability and versatility of the original StanbyME, the 27LX5 lets users enjoy memorable entertainment experiences wherever they go.
Perfect for watching movies, playing games and more, the StanbyME Go can be used indoors or out; its carrying case and built-in battery enabling take-anywhere convenience, superior screen protection and up to 3 hours of use without connection to an external power outlet. In addition to the new Lifestyle Screen’s large display and robust speakers, the case includes safe storage for the product’s streamlined remote control and power cable.
StanbyME Go complements its portability with versatile adjustability that supports a range of different uses and personal preferences. Users can tilt the screen to achieve the best viewing angle, rotate it 90 degrees from landscape to portrait and back, adjust its height by up to 18 centimeters or put it in Table mode. When set to Table mode, the StanbyME Go’s screen lies flat in the lower part of the case, allowing users to play digital board games including chess and ‘Hidden Catch,’ or switch on the virtual record player for a fun, nostalgic listening experience. Conveniently, LG’s Lifestyle Screen automatically turns on when its case is opened and turns off when it is closed.
The StanbyME Go also offers proven durability, as evidenced by its successful completion of 11 tests compliant with the U.S. military’s rigorous MIL-STD-810G standard. The tests demonstrate that the 27LX5 can handle a wide variety of environmental factors, including low pressure, high temperature, low temperature, dust and salt spray, and provides protection against accidental drops, vibration and shock.
For maximum viewing immersion, the built-in speakers of StanbyME Go automatically optimize audio output to the front of the screen. Viewing experiences are further enhanced through support for Dolby’s advanced video and sound technologies, Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos.
Equipped with LG’s proprietary webOS smart TV platform, StanbyME Go lets users effortlessly connect to their iOS or Android devices. Moreover, voice recognition makes it possible to do app launching, adjust sound and search for contents completely hands-free – an especially helpful feature for those who like to cook, clean or take on other tasks or activities while they watch.
LG’s Lifestyle Screen products are revolutionizing the user and viewing experience, presenting new ways to enjoy content and new lifestyle value for today’s consumers. LG StanbyME Go is set to launch globally, starting in the U.S. this month, with plans for global rollout to key markets in Europe including Italy, France, UK, Spain and Germany from next month.
LG will be showcasing its latest lifestyle TVs, including StanbyME, StanbyME Go, along with the LG OLED Objet Collection Posé, at its exhibition booth (Hall 18, Messe Berlin) at IFA 2023 in Berlin, Germany, from September 1-5.

LG is partnering with world-renowned Danish luxury audio company Bang & Olufsen to redefine home cinema.
link hidden, please login to view, the groundbreaking Micro LED display, and Bang & Olufsen’s flagship speakers combine to present immersive viewing experiences with ultra-large and incredibly lifelike images and powerful, nuanced sound.
With a sleek, modern design and vivid, ultra-sharp Micro LED picture quality, LG MAGNIT delivers the ultimate in viewing pleasure. Its 136-inch, 4K UHD (3840 x 2160), 120Hz-refresh-rate screen is great for watching movies, TV shows and sporting events – and for admiring artworks – in the privacy of one’s home. By combining the performance of Micro LED with convenient features that enhance content enjoyment, LG has created a unique display for those who demand the very best.
While the quality and size of images shown on LG MAGNIT are sure to captivate, so too will the display’s elegant, minimalist design. LG’s Micro LED solution for the home has a bezel-less screen for immersive viewing experience, and has a sturdy, stylish aluminum frame with a brushed metal finish that complements any interior décor or color scheme. Likewise, the Media Box, which serves as a controller for LG MAGNIT and shares the display’s luxurious yet understated aesthetic, harmonizes beautifully with the surrounding environment.
Having produced such a superlative screen, LG tasked itself with finding a sound partner capable of providing an audio solution that could match MAGNIT in terms of design beauty and outstanding performance. Bang & Olufsen – beloved by audiophiles since 1925 – immediately understood LG’s vision for elevating the home cinema experience, and knew exactly which of its superior sound solutions would best complement LG MAGNIT: the distinctive, dynamic Beolab 90.
Bundled with LG MAGNIT, Bang & Olufsen’s Beolab 90 speakers are the ideal match for LG’s Micro LED innovation in both style and performance. An aesthetic and acoustic masterpiece, Beolab 90 boasts an iconic design featuring curved wooden bases, a series of angular facets covered in sleek fabric, and finishing touches of brushed aluminum. The stunning Beolab 90 sits at the top of Bang & Olufsen’s range of Beolab speakers, all of which are compatible with LG MAGNIT.
Beolab 90 is a floor-standing speaker that adapts output to the space it is in and the type of audio it is reproducing. With 8,200 watts per speaker, 18 premium drivers, 14 channels of 300-watt ICE power amplifiers and 4 channels of 1,000-watt Class D Heliox amplifiers, Bang & Olufsen’s Beolab 90 makes music and soundtracks come to life in a way that few speakers can.
Dedicated to delivering outstanding home cinema and user experiences, LG and Bang & Olufsen conducted several rounds of testing to ensure seamless compatibility between the webOS platform installed on LG MAGNIT, and Bang & Olufsen’s software application. Thanks to these efforts, users can now enjoy the convenience of being able to control both LG MAGNIT and Beolab 90 via Bang & Olufsen’s remote controller.
The LG MAGNIT with Bang & Olufsen’s Beolab 90 speakers is currently on display at international locations. Visitors can experience this pairing at the LG Business Innovation Center in Dubai, UAE, as well as at the Bang & Olufsen store in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. Moreover, this exceptional combination will also be presented in the Bang & Olufsen showroom in Costa Mesa, California, USA, which is scheduled in September.
