Delete unused channels

Question

Can some one tell me how to delete channels that i do not use? When I scan after channels, i get nearly 200, but it's only 25 of them I use. The rest of them are coded and channels that do not interest me.

 

I think that's the cause of the Guide is loading so slowly and are using so much time getting DVB-C program info? My old Samsung was much faster, but there I only had the channels I wanted to see.

 

Hope that someone can help me.

 

Best Regards

Thomas.

Hi.

 

It is not possible directly on TV, but there is much convenient way.

 

Insert USB stick.

Go to Settings - Channels - Copy channels (at the bottom)

Copy to USB

Download and install ChanSort utility http://sourceforge.net/projects/chansort/

On USB you should find file like GlobalClone00001.TTL (at least on 40LF630 models) so open it in ChanSort

Delete, move, rename, renumber channels as you like, then save/overwrite with deleting unsorted channels.

Put the USB back to TV and copy channels list back to TV. (Dont forget to select correct USB device if you have more devices connected)

It should restart after while and now you should have nice program list.

 

I hope this helps.

Sorry to dig up an old thread, but I have a USB connected, but only and options to Copy from USB. The flash drive is formatted to NTFS.

 

Any idea what I can do to make the Copy to USB display?

 

The TV is an LG 65UF770.

Hi dusf

 

There is normally a hidden menu (also not know as hotel mode or menu) that has the copy to usb option.

 

To access hotel mode, press and hold menu or settings button on remote until menu appears, then disappears and channel info is displayed

Release menu or setting button then quickly enter code 1105 and press ok.

 

On some models, pressing the home button instead of settings or menu also works.

      I recently copied some backup folders (like steam game backup folders, etc) from my PC to my USB drive that's connected to my LG TV running webOS. Since then, my TV takes 4x the time it previously took to show my USB drive as connected after its switched on. So i assume that it scans all the folders to show any viewable media content .. and the new folders I copied have a lot of files and folders in them so thats adding the time to it.   So my question is, is there a way to p

    • Question: " My Channels" keep disappearing

      I have 49SJ810 TV.  There is a "My Channels" option to add your favourite live TV channels which is very useful as it is much quicker than going through the guide menu if you only watch a few channels regularly.  I have successfully set up my favourite channels under the "My Channels" card multiple times, but "randomly" something happens that makes them all disappear from the "My channels" card.  Furthermore, when this happens I don't even have the "add" option to add these back unless I switch

      I've seen some old posts (over a year) via a google search about the issue I'm having which seemed to be a bug then and apparently still is. I have an OLED55B7V with the latest LG Firmware available according to the Update section on my TV which is 04.70.95. My issue is that occasionally when I turn on the TV from Standby via the remote, the Freeview channels are no longer tuned and I am required to retune them. I don't experience any issues tuning them and they will stay tuned sometim

    • Question: Permanently Delete Apps

      Is there a way to permanently delete apps to free up both ROM and RAM?  Uninstalling does not do it to allow for your TV response time to improve. A regular reset also fails to accomplish it. Will a factory reset produce the desired results?
