TV Guide Empty on Startup

Question

Hi

I have setup Free To Air (FTA) on my new LG 4k TV and it works great, except when you pull up the TV guide it's empty and it takes ages to populate, also, when it does populate there's only now and next listed. Is it possible to upload an 8 day EPG on an external USB? And failing that, is it possible to get the TV to store even the now or next so it's there when I open the TV guide?

Thanks

Tom

Hi Tom,

Going purely by your name I'm going to take a guess at you are in the UK, if I am correct take a look at this post:

    • Question: This app will now restart to free up more memory

      Just bought an LGLED-65UJ630 65INCH TV. Right away I started to get the message "This app will now restart to free up more memory". After searching the internet and forums, I now understand that this problem is huge, it has been going on for years now and it is right across many models of LG TV's. I have tried everything to fix this problem. It has the latest firmware. I did the factory reset and that lasted 4 hours before I got the message back. I turn off the TV and leave it for 10 minutes, maybe one hour later I get the message. I delete browsing history, maybe 10 minutes and I get the message..... you get the message. As I understand it, the problem is that LG TV's don't have enough internal memory, but they have shipped a ton of their "smart" TV's with this problem. My question is, has anybody heard anything from anybody, anywhere about a solution to this problem. I really want to keep this TV, but it is not fit for purpose in this state.

    • Question: TV's User Guide DOA!

      My brand new 75UK6190PUB  TV's  USER GUIDE  seems to have no response once reaching its home page. I press HOME on the remote .  Then select the USER GUIDE app from the bottom of the screen. The home page of the USER GUIDE displays full screen with NONE of the topics highlighted. All attempts to progress in the guide fail including the arrow keys. The only remote button button that works is EXIT (and POWER of course). Using the USER GUIDE on a Chromebook from the LG website seems to work fine. I have NOT attempted to upgrade the firmware yet, allowing for the possibility that I am doing an incorrect action. I forgot to gather my product's S/N & current firmware version when composing this message on my desktop PC, but will provide them upon request. I do not yet have a keyboard and mouse connected to the TV yet, and am using other devices to use this forum.
