I'm using Ethernet , WIFI not reliable . I don't expect 495Mbps to TV but I only get 5Mbps with Fast speedtest and 18 with Ookla . Netflix says you need 25 Mbps for 4K streaming. I did see in post someone used a usb to ethernet adapter . I got one from Amazon and connected through it. Going through USB my speed increased to 15-25 Mbps with FAST and 50 Mbps with Ookla. When I check network settings it say both wired not connected , but it works with Netflix and other Apps . I could live with that , but I dont think I should have to use a $15 adapter to work around an ethernet connection on a brand new high end TV. And I'm not sure if any other internet apps would be affected. Thanks for your reply , I appreciate any help.
Hi, thanks for your reply. This happens using either live (digital) TV via the antenna or the satellite via the dish, no set top box in use, only the TV.
Yes when I hit select there are toggle type choices for language choice and subtitles (i.e. closed captions I presume) etc. I can toggle them between available langages or Off. This works fine.
BUT I have to do this EVERY time I change channels. Yikes! And also when I turn on the TV - the captions appear to be always ON by default.
I think I have been over all the options since this TV arrived for Christmas, but I'm still hoping there may be a solution. I also did a reset/initialise to the whole setup and this led me to realise it was just changing the language (sound) that automtically turns on captions. Which is crazy in my opinion 😉

"There are two versions for this:
The first one is that the TV supports the playing of the subtitles, in which case it will request the subtitles from the DLNA and display it (usually, there's a button on a tv remote to turn on the subtitles explicitly - on Sony there's a button with four dots inside the square (....) that turns on the subtitles). Usually, the subtitles have to be in the same folder where the video is, and with the exact same title. But, not all subtitle formats are usually supported (e.g. srt, etc), and this varies from vendor to vendor.
The other option is for the DLNA to send the subtitles along inside the video image. For this, you need transcoding. Transcoding is usually used when the TV doesn't have support for the source video format and the DLNA transcodes it to a format TV can play, but in the case of subtitles, the DLNA has to transcode just so it can insert the subtitles into the movie image. Some DLNA servers usually have an option to 'always transcode when subtitles found'."
@Murray Ronald Are you talking about "CC" (Close Caption) options here? If you press select while watching a Live TV program, you should see a CC option that you can toggle on or off.
Have a look at the Accessibilty options, there may be an advanced setting for those if you need more control.
If something else (i.e. from a NetFlix or other premium APP program/video title), can you please explain or show a screen shot?
Also from an LG site (may be your issue):
"It’s a common complaint among LG TV owners. You’ve turned off the closed captions just as we’ve mentioned yet the subtitles remain. This happens most often when this happens the captions are turned on somewhere other than your TV.
Closed captions are available on a variety of devices that you use with your LG TV. From your cable box to a Roku or Firestick device, the captions could be appearing because they’re set up on another device. After you’ve verified that the captions are off on the LG TV using the methods above, check your connected devices to ensure the captions are off there as well."
