" My Channels" keep disappearing

Question

I have 49SJ810 TV.  There is a "My Channels" option to add your favourite live TV channels which is very useful as it is much quicker than going through the guide menu if you only watch a few channels regularly.  I have successfully set up my favourite channels under the "My Channels" card multiple times, but "randomly" something happens that makes them all disappear from the "My channels" card.  Furthermore, when this happens I don't even have the "add" option to add these back unless I switch the TV off and then on.  Have any other members experienced this?  I suspect it is a software bug but my searcher this hasn't been fruitful.  I contacted LG customer support who took me through the setup menu options to turn off the "programme List Update" feature, but that hasn't fixed it.  Help!!!

I have exactly the same problem and LG support gave me the same fix, which doesn't fix anything. They have ignored my emails since. 

It's a shame as I generally like LG products. But it seems their support is terrible and they don't know how to fully test their own products leaving them riddled with faults.

Ross, I should have written an update.  In the end what fixed this issue for me was to go through "factory reset" option of the menu, and the problem hasn't come back.  I know it is a pain if you have set up various apps etc and have to set them up again, but it is worth it.  I'd give it a try.

I suffer from a similar issue on my LG OLED65B8. The channels saved within "My Channels" will vanish before my eyes after my TV has previously been disconnected from the mains - something I do every night. To me this is a software glitch as the channels show up and then disappear and it acts as though you've just tried "My Channels" for the first time!

Programme List Update is turned off and I also tried a factory reset but it has not solved the issue.

      I often feel the need to turn off my TV's screen after I select a playlist and start playing. Can we have this option in the Spotify app. We do have this option in the inbuilt music player where we can turn off the display while the music plays in the background and we can turn the display back on by pressing volume up button on the remote. Felt that this option could be added to Spotify app as well.
      Thanks

      Is there any program to edit and delete channels on PC for new model LG UN73 ?

      is there a webtv function or app that shows all of shows available on all the services I subscribe to.  Xfinity does with this it's cable service for example. If you click on "recently watched" it all show all the shows you've watched wether from live TV, on demand, or from apps such as Netflix, that you've logged into. , Apple TV does the same thing. As do third party providers such as realgood.  Anything similar of LG TV

      Hi All,
      I have discovered a weird bug. If I exit playing .avi file and try to open it again the tv will show an error 'This file cannot be recognised. Returning to list.'
      I guess it stores a timestamp after exiting playing video to resume playing it later from the same position.
      But for some files (in my case avi files) the TV can't resume from a specific time (for some reason).
      I haven't found an option to remove a resume timestamp for a specific file. As a workaround I can rename the file and the TV will play it fine from the start.
      TV: 55UM7100PLB
      webOS TV Version: 4.7.0-50607 (goldilocks2-gulaga)
      Demo of the bug: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AwS7gq6MWHY
      Thank for any help.

      I noticed the on-screen keyboard layout for Polish locale is wrong, we use QWERTY keyboards here in Poland not QWERTZ, it's QWERTY only if i switch to English, is there any way to force QWERTY for Polish language?

      I currently have webos ver 04.70.45 lgwebostv uj670v   1. Under certain circumstances the TV will turn itself on during the night. After much testing it would appear that if a schedule program is due during the early hours while the TV is off it will turn itself on waking everyone. For example set a reminder for a program that starts at 11pm. Then if you turn your TV off at 10.30pm the TV will turn itself back on later. I suggest that there should be an additional check prior to the reminder going off to see if the TV is on. if it is not on then don't action the reminder thus not turning the TV on. twice now have been woken during the night to find the TV on. please fix in next release and advise.   2. Also, can you add a page in settings.  general. about TV. upgrade. what's been updated. a histotical list of changes. this would be ideal as it would advise both bug fixes and new features.   3. Also the favourites feature is very hard to organise. For example if I add a new channel to favourites1 it will go to the bottom of the list. However the swap feature is useless if you want to move this channel to say the second position. This is a problem because you are expecting us to swap 2 channels when on reality we need to move 1 channel from the bottom to say the 3rd slot WITHOUT changing any others. We don't want to swap the channel in position 2 with that in last position.

      This app for video on demand (netflix like) has a huge bug. after 5 minutes, the screensaver activates.
       
      It is like this since the very beginning, and no ones have fixed it yet.
       
      stars feedback is dropping down guys....
