I purchased a LG OLED TV in December 2017. It is great, except for one annoyance. Every 15 minutes, a HDMI2 popup appears in the center of the screen. It disappears after a few seconds. This repeats ad infinitum. My TV connections are very simple. One coax cable input to the Cable Box. HDMI output from the Cable Box to the TV's HDMI1 input. The coax output from the Cable Box is connected to a Magnavox DVR. The DVR is connected to the TV's HDMI2 input . The DVR is "off" when we watch normal TV on the HDMI1. I've searched the internet for a solution, without success. Any ideas?
Can someone tell me if I'm going crazy?
I've had this LG 43UH661V TV for a while now. I use it with my Sony BDV-N5200W surround sound system, connected via HDMI ARC and it's great.
The LG TV only has 3x HDMI, one of which is used by the surround sound. The surround sound has 2x HDMI inputs that I can use, and switching to it on the TV, and then switching it's inputs allows me to effectively have 5x HDMI in my system, which is pretty good!
I'm SURE that at some point when I was setting up the TV and surround sound together, I noticed extra devices in the input menus on the TV - like the TV was "seeing" the devices that the surround sound had on offer.
Am I imagining things? Or is this a possibility? If so, how the heck do I get it to work again?
