PreCentral: The webOS Wish List: Lock Screen Exhibition


News Reporter

Recommended Posts

Lock Screen Exhibition

Exhibition is really one of the under-appreciated features of webOS, despite the power of glanceable information it brings to bear. The big limitation is that it's confined to the Touchstone charger, which it need not be. Particularly with smartphones we've taken to them as glanceable information devices - What time is it? Do I need to look at that email?

But it could be so much more, and with the framework for Exhibition already in place, making it so much more wouldn't be that much of a leap. The time has come for Exhibition to make it to the lock screen, both in the form of built-in customizable modules and from third party apps. It can even tie off the same settings from Exhibition on Touchstone, so you get the same view when charging and when glancing.

Apart from an Agenda view, clock, and photos, what else could lock screen Exhibition bring to bear? Oh, just the most recent posts on Twitter or Facebook, glancing over stock feeds, a few of the latest news headlines, expanded weather forecasts, and upcoming calendar appointments, just to name a few. And with Exhibition already an option available to developers, we can imagine plenty more taking place on the lock screen.

Have your own thoughts on this

      Hi
      I currently have CA DacMagic 100 connected via optical + CA A1 AMP, this is quite cumbersome and doesn't work with universal control.
      I know that i will have to buy some hardware to have proper universal control, however i can't find any reliable information on which amp does support it and which doesn't. 
       
      It would be great if list of supported devices would be available.
      If not then recomendation for AMPs that works well with optical + simple DALI oberon stereo satellite setup is also solution.
       
      PS1. Sorry if this duplicate but i couldn't find anything meaningful after few days of googling.
      PS2. I've heard that Denon AVR-X3600H works but this is massive overkill for what i need (i don't indend to go beyond stereo, not even 2+1).

      On LG OLEDs. You go on and disable SIMPLINK. Fine. But everytime you turn on your HDMI device it enables itself back again. This happens because they have disables two key features that were present in previous OSs, as you can see clearly here
      link hidden, please login to view (they even put screencaps of the menus where you see the missing options in the 23) These functions are Auto Power Sync and Auto Device Detection.
      Man updates are supposed to add functionalities not the other way around. It's very annoying to turn on your TV and have your AVR turn on without you wanting to.

      Anyone found a solution for this problem?
