New user on here.
I bought this new TV last week and it is honestly driving me bananas.
When I click "Home" after using an App, etc, it brings me to the WebOS interface but then automatically selects the last used device (e.g. Fire stick, LG Channels, etc) despite me not wanting it to.
Is it possible to disable this, i.e. "Home" brings me to WebOS and stays there? I'm sure its a setting etc which I'm missing.
Device is LG UQ91 43 inch 4K Smart UHD TV, pretty sure its all up to date.
Thanks in advance.

Company Joins Forces With Hyundai Motor Group and YouTube
to Deliver More Entertaining Infotainment Experiences With the New Genesis Models
SEOUL, Nov. 1, 2023 — LG Electronics (LG) has announced that it will apply its in-vehicle infotainment system – featuring webOS for Automotive, the company’s automotive content platform – to Hyundai Motor Group (Hyundai Motor Company, Kia corporation, Genesis)’s new Genesis models. On October 31, LG hosted Hyundai Motor Group (Hyundai) and YouTube at a ceremony in Los Angeles, U.S., to celebrate the introduction of webOS for Automotive to Hyundai’s luxury brand, Genesis, and to discuss collaborations to enhance the in-vehicle entertainment experience.
Hyundai’s new Genesis models are equipped with an infotainment system that takes full advantage of webOS for Automotive. Passengers in the front and back seats can now comfortably watch the high-definition content they typically enjoy on their smartphone or TV in compliance with driving and safety regulations. Infotainment displays can stream content with the immersive sound quality Genesis has engineered.
This collaboration is noteworthy as it marks LG’s first unveiling of its automotive content platform. LG introduced webOS for Automotive to extend its unique customer experiences and services to the road. Leveraging the proven popularity and convenience of webOS, which has reached cumulative sales of 200 million in the Smart TV market, the company has developed a new version for vehicles so that drivers and passengers can enjoy a wide array of over-the-top (OTT) services, including YouTube, in an optimized cabin setting.
LG, Hyundai and YouTube worked in close collaboration to bring YouTube’s native TV app to WebOS for Automotive, providing an optimized in-vehicle viewing experience. In addition, the YouTube app uses the newly developed native touch solutions on WebOS for Automotive.
Always at the forefront of innovation in the infotainment market, LG is constantly enhancing driving and chauffeur experiences by drawing on the extensive technology and insight it has accumulated over decades in the TV and home appliance spaces.
With webOS for Automotive, customers can comfortably enjoy the variety of content available on TVs at home within their vehicle. It provides differentiated mobility experiences that bring more value to life on the road by extending their living space to their vehicles.
“Thanks to technological development based on SDV, people can comfortably enjoy various video content in their vehicles,” said Kwon Hae-young, vice president of the Infotainment Development Center at Hyundai Motor Group. “We will continue to expand our collaboration with major global content companies to provide more diverse and valuable in-vehicle experiences to our customers.”
“YouTube provides breadth and depth of audio and video content that is optimized for in-vehicle entertainment. We are proud to be part of this collaboration that’s taking in-vehicle entertainment to the next level,” said Tony Archibong, managing director of Global Product Partnerships at YouTube.
“LG remains committed to introducing the most advanced vehicle solutions, including webOS for Automotive, as we strive to elevate the customer experience for drivers and passengers while also accommodating the diverse demands of car manufacturers,” said Eun Seok-hyun, president of LG Vehicle component Solutions Company.
Based on a rich understanding of customer and their living spaces, LG held a press conference at IAA Mobility 2023 in Munich, Germany in September, where LG CEO William Cho shared the company’s perspective and presented its vision for the future mobility industry under the theme of “Taking Life’s Good on the Road.”

“Optimism is a hard thing to choose. But once you do, you’ll see why Life’s Good.”
Last month, LG released its new brand film titled
link hidden, please login to view,” capturing the essence of the company’s Life’s Good brand promise. The film aims to inspire customers, especially global youth to face bold challenges with an optimistic attitude toward life, particularly during difficult times like these. Life is full of trials and tribulations, and as a result, many have lost their innate optimistic view on the world. But, if we have courage, we can reconnect to that optimism and change our perspective. With the brand film, LG aims to encourage people around the world to approach any challenge they face with an optimistic perspective and mindset, and seize life’s opportunities.
At the start of the 90-second film, the protagonist has a look of apprehension and a lack of confidence as he challenges himself to ride a longboard. However, as the film progresses, he gains his composure, gradually learning how to balance and finally gliding gracefully with a big smile on his face, driven by the optimism within him. Filmed in one take without any screen cuts, the character’s raw emotions are on display, complimented by the warmth of soft, golden hues and soothing background music.
Directed by Emmy-Award winning Nicolai Fuglsig, the brand film is narrated by a young boy who represents the inner optimistic voice within all of us. This narration could symbolize the protagonist’s inner child, filled with optimism, or the innate optimism that everyone carries inside. Throughout the film, the voice strengthens the main character to overcome his fear, allowing him to truly enjoy the moment to the fullest.
The film is a love letter to all those who dare to awaken the optimist in their hearts and encourages viewers to dream beyond their limitations. The heroes who allow themselves to be brave, according to Fuglsig, “venture out of their comfort zone, using optimism to overcome challenges, big or small.”
The brand film resonated deeply with global audiences, quickly going viral and garnering overwhelmingly positive feedback across LG’s official social media platforms. Notably on LG’s YouTube global channel alone, the film garnered more than 36 million views in just three weeks. One viewer from Instagram commented, “It was inspiring to see how someone’s anxiety of trying something new changed into full enjoyment by making a bold decision.” Another viewer stated, “the film helped me reflect because I myself have run into setbacks and was scared to take on challenges, but I was reminded that I can do anything I set my mind to with courage and hope.”
LG has been operating its Life’s Good campaign globally since August with a philosophy to inspire people to face challenges with an optimistic approach even when life has so many setbacks, changes and reasons to doubt. The company has been actively promoting its brand values with a new visual identity on major landmarks and outdoor billboards to present LG as a young and dynamic brand.
Seeing the world with optimism is what Life’s Good is all about, and LG will continue alongside consumers every step of their brave journey.
