Irritating set top box popup

Question

Hello all, just got myself a 50LB650V-ZN

 

I have my freesat box set up on HDMI 1, correctly working through the device connector settings, an Xbox one on HDMI 2 and an Apple TV on HDMI 3. When I'm playing on the Xbox I regularly get a grey WebOS popup at the bottom of the screen that simply shows the "set top box" text and icon, with a little "x" to close the pop up above it. It can be closed with the "x" or goes away after 30 seconds or so on its own.

 

My question is why is it popping up? And how do I stop it?? The set top box is switched off (in standby) and it's not coinciding with any recordings, but it's like the TV has sensed the box being switched on. Is there a way to disable that?

Any solution to this?

 

This is EXTREMELY annoying. I have a Mac Mini setup as a PVR, and every time it wakes up I get a popup while watching another source.

 

And from a usability standpoint this notice is useless. Why do I want to know that another source has come online? I only care if a source is availble when I go to view that source.
