Feature Requests - Who uses Live TV anymore?


Recommended Posts

Please give us the option to remove Live TV from the Launcher and Home Menu, "Today" from the Home menu, and to auto-launch the last running app (like if you were watching Hulu when you turned off the TV.   I don't have cable and all of these features are just a nuisance to me.  Turning on my tv with the "No signal" or "Scrambled" message because I don't have any live channels is also annoying and looks very unpolished for a $5k TV...

 

Thanks!

How about giving us a reply to this issue, LG? My Sony Bravia that's 10+ years old allows me to deactivate the tuner and it's not even a "Smart TV". This is pretty "un-smart" on your engineers behalf. Like others have stated, it's very irritating to hear static blast through my speakers when I press the power button on my remote. Give us the option to GET RID OF THE INPUT!

So disappointed. If this TV wasn't a gift, I'd get a smarter "Smart TV".

As a software developer, this OS was poorly thought out. And what's with the lag when I use the IR Remote? It's as frustrating as using an old computer!

Why in 2019 is this still not possible, this is my biggest grip with LG tv's
Allow me to remove it from the input options!

Allow me to hide Live TV, who uses an antenna ANYMORE?!?!?!?

I think I may reconsider LG for my next TV if this can not be resolved, how do you sell 70" 4k TV's that can't disable the antenna option?

Well if you're in the UK I'll come and take it off your hands, because yes I do on happen to watch live TV.

Bit of a first world problem...

Oh thanks for your so helpful input on the validity of my complaint on the manufacture of said device web forums.

But it is not really a complaint is it.  What you mean is that it is a feature you would like that is not currently available on the TV.  If of course this was the defining  feature of a TV why did you not investigate first and purchase a brand that offers such a quality?  Just because it is 2019 does not guarantee any product will have what you want baked in to it, doing research before you buy something would be my advise.  Hope you find that advise more helpful.

When you find a manufacture that does have this feature please let the forum know for those who may be interested.

Also it is a television...  You know to watch TV on otherwise with no tuners it would be a monitor...

This is a legitimate request, the whole point of a smart TV, here in LG's case, is to allow easy and full use of the WebOS apps home screen.   It just makes matters worse that not only can we not select the webOS as a default input, but we can't even turn off the live tv tuner input.  It is a pretty major oversight in any case.

I don’t know how I did this I was playing with my TV for an hour because the static sound was infuriating, well I held down the home buttom for several seconds typed in 11105 and it went to ‘’DTV’’ says no signal and is now just displaying beautiful wallpapers! No more static when my TV turns on! Give it a try make sure your no signal image is turned on under general settings, hope this helps :)

Hi guys . as a work around . Web OS can remember the last input that was selected. You can change the input to one of the HDMI inputs so that whenever the TV is turned ON it will go to HDMI and just scroll through Random Beautiful Pictures saying No Signal . Another work arount is do an auto Scan or Auto tuning for live TV without Antenna or Cable connected so that it will not detect any channel, if it will not detect any channel , whenever you go to live TV it will just scroll through random images showing No signal.  

 

I hope LG can add a setting that can let the user to choose BETWEEN booting up to Inputs like what its currently doing AND booting up directly to the Homepage . 

 

I love the current setup because I use a Set Top Box and it works great but it will be better if there will be a settings like what I suggest above .

@George Hofmeister Aren't you gonna come in here and tell all these new people to this thread that they should of done more research or w/e and that their complaints aren't valid? or did you just feel like being a contrarying to me?

Hi Nick

Yes, to the latter, because you already seem to have understood my point.

However in an attempt to be helpful I have done some investigation and found an LG YouTube video that shows how to set up a TV that will not be used for live TV services, the link below should start at the point with the relevant setting:

Hopefully this will be of more use than people whining about features they did not think to ask about before they purchased a product. 

Oh see what I did there!

      Hi.
      When Im playing a movie in an app on my LG OLED TV the screen is turned off after 15 minutter and only showing for the lack of other words its "digital fireworks» and the text "Turn on screen by pressing any button on remote except power button».
      Its really annoying. 
      Every power/eco mode is off and no timer is active?
      Anyone?

      Dears, 
      While trying to set up universal control for my surround sound (so I dont need the extra remote) I've been facing the following difficulty.
       
      When I go through the steps in device connector I never get the option for set universal control. After simplink  (which is off) I just have the option "done" no next to set up manufacturer to control it via the "universal" remote function on my magic remote.
       
      Device: Oled55c7v-z + magic remote
      Tried already:
      Factory reset, change service location, adding different devices (never does the option appear), hard power cycle, and disconnecting and connecting the devices.

      Hallo, I bought a 55un74006LB smart tv in Italy. It seems not to have usb recording capabilities, according to the information on the italian website, but the UK site declare it has. I think it's the same product with the same functions, so how can I turn the live tv and usb recording on? I think I found the options in the service menu but I cannot change the values. Any suggestion?
