Need help with LG 60UB8200 | Turning off screen saver!


Wei Zhang

Question

We want to use them to show a picture constantly, but screen saver keeps on turning on.

Firmware is upgraded to the latest one, and turned eco mode off. No luck. ( SOFTWARE FILE(VERSION 04.11.08)

 

I thought of copying the same files to multiple copies so the tv can go through it as slide shows but it will still sop in the end and not repeat.

If I copy the files to the TV hard drive, will it help?

I tried researching into this issue, but no luck.
Called and contacted LG, tech support told me that I purchased the wrong TV? I am not even sure what that means, I guess I should have looked into another brand.

10 of these guys are installed now so I want to save the hassle and not return them.

Thanks for any suggestion and input!

      On LG OLEDs. You go on and disable SIMPLINK. Fine. But everytime you turn on your HDMI device it enables itself back again. This happens because they have disables two key features that were present in previous OSs, as you can see clearly here
      link hidden, please login to view (they even put screencaps of the menus where you see the missing options in the 23) These functions are Auto Power Sync and Auto Device Detection.
      Man updates are supposed to add functionalities not the other way around. It's very annoying to turn on your TV and have your AVR turn on without you wanting to.

      Anyone found a solution for this problem?

      I've seen an older thread on this topic but it doesn't look like anyone found a solution to disabling the screen saver, so I'll try a new one.
      On virtually all my LG TV's (I have three OLED's and two LCD), the screen saver interferes with my music app (like Plex, Spotify or Amazon Music). I mainly use Plex for playback of my music which is stored on a central server (NAS) and from the app loaded on a Fire TV stick or cube. After about 20-30 minutes, the album art and other related music information (lyrics, song title, duration, etc) all goes black. If I run Plex (or Spotify) directly on the LG TV via the LG Content store app, the screen saver with fireworks always comes on in about 2 minutes. 
      I've tried all the different methods to disable the screen saver function including turning off the Timers, Auto Power Off,  HDD Storage, etc. I also tried opening the hidden menus by pressing the mute button 5 times but that menu didn't have anything relevant. 
      Interesting is that the screen saver doesn't come on when using Spotify on a Fire TV stick or if I playback music through a USB device. But i don't use those methods often, mainly Plex to access my music server where I have about 500 CD's stored in ALAC format.
      Has anyone found a way to disable the screen saver function? I know the logic for having it (to prevent OLED burn in) but I'm not leaving the same image on for more than the song duration (about 3-5 minutes).  It's annoying to check the screen for the a music title or see who is on only to find a black screen looking back. Thanks for any help.

      hello members
      my friend has just brought a new 55inch oled. He watches Sky 90% of the time from using he's sky box. we have the sky box set up on HDMI 1. 
      we are trying to find a way that he can use just the one remote ( the new magic oled one ) that comes with the TV.
      so far we have worked out you can control sky through using the magic oled remote, we can change channels and so on.
      we have also just worked out you can switch the TV off and it also switches of the sky box off, but we cant work out how to switch sky box and TV on at the same time from using the magic remote. in order to switch the sky box on we have to go into home hub, select HDMI 1 and we then get the option box come up that says do you want to switch on sky box ( at this point we obviously select yes ) and it switches sky box on.
      we were looking for a easier fix, to switching tv and sky box on at the same time just from the one remote without having to go into things.
      i have also noticed there is a sky app , does this app do the same as the sky box ?
       
      any help appreciated

      Hello there,
      Is it possible to turn off search on the home screen, or filter results to show only apps? Ideally, I'd like to limit content to be appropriate for kids.
