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!

I may have accidentally discovered a partial solution to this. I changed the input to HDMI 1 when I connected a Roku. After I disconnected the Roku, I left the input on HDMI. Now when I turn on the TV, it says no signal detected and scrolls thru some beautiful wallpapers with no annoying hissing. Give it a try.

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 .

As I see none of the mentioned methods solves the issue. I'd like to hide all the related features. Navigation between other items would be much simpler and clear. If there is no option to setup via user interface, please provide another way like scripting/remoting/anything.

@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:

https://youtu.be/R4Jh5VBLBSk?t=111

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!

It seems LG doesn't read or reply this Forum, you have to suggest it in other place that LG staff read it.

As a programmer I would recommend to WebOS to look at inputs  and apps as same Entity and remember the last selected one.

Also I recommend split Satellite and Antenna as two live TV options. (if merging both types channels in same list is not doable)

Example :
Satellite
Antenna
HDMI 1
HDMI 2
USB
Browser
Netflix
etc

I use one of my LG on antenna for locals and an Android box on HTML for other services. My 2nd LG runs only lg apps with no antenna so I had the same annoying noise problem. A simple workaround which I discovered by accident had been previously shared. Switch the input to an unused HDMI port. Then, whenever you start up the tv, you get a brief no input message followed by the homepage wallpaper screen. This may not be a glorious solution but it however eliminates the loud white noise on startup.

I tried that, but I get a big "No signal found" error message when an unused port is selected.

The video references WebOS v3. Many new TVs are still on WebOS v2 which does not provide those features. I note video comments to the effect that users cannot do as implied in the video and disable the antenna.

      Hey guys, I have a LG 49LF6310 which is 1.5 years old. All of a sudden my TV started flickering while accessing menu or while using a thing related to the os but it works fine while watching movies or TV. Please help.

      I have attached a photo where you can see the boxy flickering why in settings menu. It disappears when I exit it. It looks like a Software side problem but i cant seem to figure out what the problem is.

      What would be the best way to approach this. I tried to search for VLC player in apps and used the search function and nothing.
      Im planning on downloading some movies from usenet onto my pc, put them on a usb stick and watch them on my tv by putting the usb stick in my tv.
      Best way to approach this? what file type is supported by webos or the default video player on the LG 32LK6200?
       
      Kind of a noob at this btw, I know some people might say go read and endless long tutorial or 'get your research done'. Well i dont feel like spending several days or dozens of hours getting that done. The wheel has allready been invented so kindly share the information.
       
      Thanks allready to the people who are willing to allow me and my family watch some good movies with the kids :)

      I recently updated the firmware on my  LG43UH610V.  Now I constantly get "Wired Lan cable disconnected" / "Wired network is connected" messages even while watching a video file from my NAS. The TV is connected and using the network while getting these messages. It has always been on a fixed IP address on the LAN.
