vTuner no more working on my BP735





I was using somewhat often the vTuner application on my LG Blu-Ray BP735 and since few days I'm unable to start this application.


When I start the vTuner from the Premium page (or from my favorites), I just got an horizontal white line in the screen. I waited over 10 minutes and nothing more. Turn On, Turn Off,... nothing more.


My LG OS is a the latest version


All others applications that I use are still working fine.


The vTuner is a "builtin" application in the Premium menu. How can I fix the problem (I don't find a way to reinstall it) ?

Just purchased the LG 550 mainly for of its vTuner feature, which I just unfortunately confirmed here on these forums is apparently no more.  And it appears that internet radio apps on blu-ray players in general are becoming as rare as hen's teeth.  Fortunately, I still have my three Panny 360 players that have both the 'Tune-In Radio' and 'Shoutcast' internet radio apps, as well as my Roku streaming sticks, altho 'Tune-In Radio' is very buggy on the Roku's.  FYI, for those who still want internet radio (on BD players), the current midrange and top-of-the-line Panasonic 270 and 460 models still have the aforementioned apps.  In any case, I guess I have 29 days to decide if I want to return my 550, and will keep both my fingers crossed that vTuner will be reinstated in the meantime ...

Well I got 2 internet radios.  A a Tuner which optically hooks up to my Sony AV Receiver and a smaller unit which uses RCA analog hookup to my Sony receiver in the bedroom and they are vTuner like even better and have search like vTuner and Pandora, iheartradio, NPR on-demand, BBC, ESPN, Live 365, Sirius, over 30,000 Podcast.  Heck with LG.


The tuner is both wired/wireless but the other Grace is wireless only but has a USB optional adapter for wired due here Tuesday.  Good luck with you all.

I have a BP735 and had the black (or ls it white?) line problem for many months.  I checked again yesterday and now I get a webpage saying "404 - File or directory not found.  The resource you are looking for might have been removed, had its name changed, or is temporarily unavailable."  Not sure if this is a good or bad omen.  My LG software is up-to-date.


I have an Onkyo with internet radio now so it's not the end of the world for me, but vTuner was one of the principal reasons I went with LG.  I hate consumer electronics (I do love the Onkyo tho)!

      Good Morning, There is a recommended minimum distance between the TV and the viewer. I bought an LG OLED C155 last month and it is uncomfortable from a distance. It was my mistake. I bought it without worrying about visual comfort. Is it possible to reduce the screen's usable area to simulate a screen size TV of 48 inches or less, accepting the black borders that would be created? It would be something similar to a custom aspect ratio. The idea would be to be able to simulate a smaller screen size than the purchased equipment. other-bigger->65->55->48->other-less

      My LG G2 bought last November has now started to turn off every 10-15 minutes when gaming on my PS5 which is directly connected.  It also from time to time identifies the PS5 as a different device (Shield TV). Any suggestions on how to fix would be welcome.

      I recently purchased an LG OLED48C2AUA. Frankly, I'm not pleased. The biggest problem is searching for programs, particularly across apps. For example, if I'm in Netflix, and search for a program that happens to be in Prime Video, using voice control (Alexa or LG) or the speak button on the remote, I usually get random UTube trailers or other suggestions, or no suggestions at all. It seems I have to know in advance what streaming app it's on, and even that doesn't work all the time. Before purchasing this TV, I used to be able to immediately find the program using the voice control on my Xfinity remote, or the Roku remote (if the program was on a streaming service) and my "unsmart" Sharp TV, with the input set to either cable box or Roku, as appropriate.
      I don't want to have to know in advance what app the program is streaming on to find it. I want to be able to simply say "Alexa, show me "Boardwalk Empire", no matter what program or app the TV is currently tuned to. I want the complete list of possibilities to choose from, particularly since some may be free, depending on my subscriptions. Is this possible?

      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.
