Time, Inc. officially calls it quits on TouchPad

If there's anybody close to as embarrassed as HP is by how things have gone with regards to the

, it's got to be the partners they dragged up on that stage at

last year. One such partner was

spending a good amount of time on stage talking about and demoing Time's new apps for the TouchPad.

Shortly after launch, apps for Time Magazine, People, Sports Illustrated, and Fortune all landed in the App Catalog, bringing the full magazines and a suite of interactive content plus online subscription options to TouchPad owners. Fast forward seven months and things have changed, with Time giving warning that they're pulling the plug on all four of their TouchPad apps. That means that the Time Magazine, People, Sports Illustrated, and Fortune apps are all due to go dark. The end-of-days date for these apps? March 10, less than three weeks from today.

Time plans to refund users for issues they won't be able to download, and we see no indication that Time's magazines won't be available through other channels (

). For now the apps all work, but that won't be the case for long. We're guessing Time hasn't had the same uptake with their subscription service as

      I have a one year-old model 43UK6500AUA, with standard remote only (no Magic Remote). I can find no mention anywhere of Time Machine. Does this model not include Time Machine  II functionality? Must one have a Magic Remote to reveal this feature? I am also baffled by numerous references in the forum to using HDMI , which should not be necessary if using the TV's built-in tuner, as I intend to do. There is also mention of using USB3 for the external HDD. My TV has only  two  USB ports : USB1 and USB2 — or does this refer to USB 3.0 version (as opposed to USB 2.0)?

      Dear Readers,

      I've a strange issue that I've been struggling for a week. I bought an LG43UJ634V UHD TV and an LG LHB645N Home Theater in a Box system.
      I use HDMI ARC to connect the audio from the TV to receiver. LG has an option to chose between PCM or Auto at the Digital output settings.

      If I use the PCM option everything sounds great, but I don't have 5.1, only 2.1.
      And here comes the problem. When I choose Auto, 5.1 is on, sounds great but I have occasional popping noise (like when play something on an old LP player) it happens random, but for example during a film, it is very annoying. It happens with YouTube, Netflix, DLNA streaming, external devices, so the content doesn't matter. I think I've tried everything. I tested it with different HDMI cables, optical cable, but still have the problem. I tested it with a sound bar as well, the problem is the same.
      When I play content from the receiver, there is no problem, the sound is wonderful, no popping. Also, the TVs speakers are okay.

      I don't think it is a hardware issue, because the TV's sound is OK, the home theater's sound is OK, the problem only happens when I want to use the digital output of the TV (either HDMI ARC or Optical) with auto setting.
      I called LG as well, the rep. said the she will pass this info to the technical team.

      Do you have any idea, that it can be solved, or I need to wait for a software update?

      TVset: SM90107LA  (europe/german model)   /   WebOS: 04.80.02
      When scheduling a planned record of a TV broadcast by using the electronic program guide data (EPG), often the last minutes of the broadcast are missing at the records. This is very annoying. Fortunately you can adjust the starting and ending time of a planned (future) record in that manner that you can, for example, extend the ending time by 5 or 10 minutes. This is very helpful.
      Unfortunately this option is not available for instant records either from the EPG screen or by direct recording. Here I have only the opportunity to completely change the EPG ending time of the running record to an own time value (e.g. record of 1 h from now). It would be more helpful if running records could also be extended a little bit but without loosing the end time of the record taken over from EPG.
      Are there any other solutions for it?

      LG Business Solutions recently introduced digital signage to Moscow's Sheremetyevo International Airport. In particular, the company provided an LED signage totem in Terminal B. Featuring up to 1,000 nits of brightness, the totem provides Russian cultural showcases, animated clock towers and advertisements, according to a press release.
      LG built a custom frame with an incorporated air cooling system for the totem and designed it so that each of the LED units had no visible gaps between them to craft a four-sided screen.
      The company provided other displays as well, including:
      Two digital art sculptures. 49-inch webOS display mounted on top of 86-inch 4K displays to provide airport information and advertising. 88-inch Ultra Stretch displays providing Russian culture vignettes. 49-inch webOS displays to guide customers to the check-in counters. "This project was the biggest and most impressive installation of digital signage in the Russian transportation industry," Ludmila Ignatova, general manager, Tegrus, an LG system integrator partner, said in the release. "Reliable product quality was very critical. For this, LG was the best partner we could have had, thanks to its global reputation as a leader in the digital signage industry."

      LG INTRODUCES ‘HEALTH PROTOCOL SOLUTIONS’ TO ASSIST ESSENTIAL AND RE-OPENING BUSINESSES   New Suite of Indoor and Window-Facing Digital Signage Packages Dynamically Communicate Policies, Sanitization Standards, Real-Time Updates   LINCOLNSHIRE, Ill., May 19, 2020 –To help businesses relay important information to their employees, customers, visitors and patients, link hidden, please login to view  has introduced a suite of link hidden, please login to view  that allow businesses to dynamically communicate their policies, sanitization standards and real-time updates.   Representing the first in LG’s all-new series of Health Protocol Solutions, these digital signage packages are designed for indoor and window-facing use in either landscape or portrait orientation. Each easy-to-use package includes a webOS Signage™ LG display, a Peerless-AV® SmartMount® Flat Panel Cart and a limited time free trial of content management software (CMS) that’s compatible with multiple webOS Signage software application partners.   “More than ever, relaying important information to employees and customers is critical, and digital signage solutions allow businesses to update messaging as often as necessary, and as quickly and safely as possible,” said Dan Smith, vice president of business development, LG Business Solutions USA. “Our goal is to help businesses during this challenging time with easy-to-use digital signage packages that can be used now for displaying immediate critical messages and re-deployed later to communicate changing health protocols as employees return to the workplace.”   For businesses like restaurants and retailers that require displays that are viewed from outdoors, the package includes a high-brightness 49- or 55-inch window-facing LG display (models 49XS4F and 55XS4F), a Peerless-AV SR560M cart and a free CMS trial. This solution allows retailers and restaurants to relay up-to-date messaging on their health protocols, hours, status, and more to prospective customers.   For other businesses, such as grocery stores, medical clinics, pharmacies and offices that need to convey information to customers and employees indoors, the package consists of three LG display options – 49- and 55-inch 4K UHD models 49UH5C and 55UH5E and 55-inch Full HD model 55SM5KE – each with a Peerless-AV SR560M cart and a free CMS trial. These indoor displays can be used now to relay relevant safety and sanitization guidelines and can be easily repurposed for any other signage requirements later.   LG’s Health Protocol Solutions digital signage packages are available now through select LG distribution partners, with more health protocol solutions coming soon.
