LG WebOS Setup

Before You Begin

  1. You should have either configured a Cloud Server in Userful Manager or set up an On-Premise server.

  2. The design of your system has followed the Network Design Requirements for Userful.

  3. Your LG WebOS devices are unboxed, mounted, powered, and have network and Internet access.

Perform a Factory Reset

It is strongly recommended that even new out-of-box devices have a factory reset performed on them before proceeding.

Open the menu by pressing the Settings oricon on the remote.

Go to the Admin tab and turn on Admin settings. The default admin password for WebOS 4.0 displays is 000000 (six zeroes).

Perform a factory reset.

Network

Open the menu by pressing the Settings oricon on the remote. Go to the General tab and open the Network section.

LG displays support wireless connections. These are not recommended for video wall operations.

Set time zone

  2. Open Time & Date and set your local time zone.

  3. Enable NTP and ensure the clock is correct.

Disable Tile Mode

uClient uses its own display settings, so it is necessary to ensure this feature is disabled on all panels before installing uClient.

  1. Open the Settings menu, go to Ez Setting and then Video Wall.

  2. Ensure Tile Mode is Off.

  3. Repeat for all panels.

Install uClient

  6. Change the Application Launch Mode to Local.

  7. Change the Application Type to IPK.

  8. Install the uClient app by selecting Remote under Local Application Upgrade.

  9. Press Confirm.

  10. Wait for the download to complete and the app to install. This process should take less than one minute.

  11. Turn the display off, wait 10 seconds, and turn it back on.

  12. Repeat for all panels.

The display should auto-launch uClient after a few seconds and display a pairing code.
