I can stream ABC content using either the iView app on our LG G1 65" OLED, or via the iView Android TV app that is installed on a Chromecast with Google TV that is plugged into one of the G1 HDMI ports. If I stream content using the app on the TV, every few minutes there's a momentary (fraction of a second) interruption to both sound and video. If I stream the same content using the app on the Chromecast, I get no such interruptions. Both TV and Chromecast are using wired Ethernet connections to the same switch, so I can't see that these interruptions are due to a network problem, or I'd see them on both devices. It would seem to be a problem with the app provided on the TV. Other streaming services that we access via apps on the TV (Netflix, Stan, Amazon Prime, etc) do not show the same problem.
Sling TV is my default app on my LG TV. Everything was working fine until today. Now when I hit the HOME button on the remote, the TV correctly returns to the HOME page, but then immediately re-launches Sling TV before I have an opportunity to select a different app (for example, Netflix). This cycle repeats itself every time I enter HOME while in the Sling TV app. The only way I can return to HOME without Sling TV automatically relaunching is to manually select a different input (e.g., HDMI one or LIVE Team), and then enter HOME and it will correctly stay in HOME until another app is selected. I've tried resetting the TV and I've tried deleting/adding Sling TV. I have the latest WebOS update. This may have started after downloading a recent Sling TV app? Not sure. Any suggestions appreciated.
Current version of webOS on 55” C1 OLED only allows HDMI1-4 or “Streaming Live TV & Content” to be used as the default input source. Why no apps like YouTube or Hulu? If “Streaming Live TV & Content” option is selected as default input, a prompt to select a service is displayed and the only option is SlingTV. Why? Sling is not the only streaming option. Many of the TV apps stream TV and content, why are they not available options? Apps need to be available options for default input.
I have LG 65C1, Denon x4300h（arc monitor 1 was broken, but monitor 2 is working ）,
and what I would like to know is,
can LG TV's autopower sync works?
I mean I want to turn on TV using the LG remote control,
then my Denon x4300h could turn on automatically,
when I turn off TV, then Denon turn off automatically.
I tried many ways to test it, I open all the functions about hdmi control, hdmi cec, simplink, autopower sync...
but it still doesn't work,
how could I solve it?
Or LG TV just can't do it?
Thanks a lot!

Hi everyone. I had a WD My Passport Ultra (firmware v1.012), which previously connected as normal on my LG TV.
However, after I updated the firmware of both the external disk + TV and they did not recognize since then. Wonder if there is any resolution?
