Change default source



Hi, Does anyone know how to change the start up source on a 

LG 55UJ635V L tv?


When i turn it on it starts at Live tv which i dont use so i have to keep changing it to my Sky box (HDMI) source. keep reading it should turn on at the last used source but it doesnt?

LG suggested change HDMI ports but that didnt work?


driving me mad, even reset the tv and its still doing it?

I had live tv for some time but my provider had problems so I changed to a provider who used a settopbox.

First I had the same problem as you but I managed to solve it. I don't know for sure that I did reset the tv but I had to choose the settopbox from the connector menu. A bit like this old tutorial:

The problem was that after this part they ask for your provider and the type of settopbox and that last was a bit difficult to find.

But, when I got it all working, I can use my magic remote to change channels and when I push the live-tv button it wil bring me back to the settopbox input

Good luck,

When i reset it there i ignored the livetv+ setbox option, just chose set top box, no massive deal reseting it right enough it just took a few minutes, to be honest i wouldnt be surprised if when i come in from work tomorrow and turn it on it goes to live tv again, i see the option is still at the top when i press the connections button on the remote.


my provider is Sky, not much else in the UK.

That could be a translation problem. Mine is in Dutch so YMMV.


Does your set-top box have a symbol that it is connected to your TV (a small remote symbol)?


Do you have a magic remote? What happens if you press the direct-tv button (looks like a small tv)?

Its a Sky box mate, doesnt have a display on it.


I had a magic remote but didnt really use it as can control most things with the Sky remote so sold it.

the first time i set the tv up i had an android box, games console and the set top box going into a HDMI hub and the hub the only cable going into the back of the TV.


I removed the hub at the weekend there and put all three boxes directly into the TV as there is 3 HDMI ports, wonder if i take them out and put them back into the hub it will stop doing what its doing?

Ah, that is not what I meant. Does the 'set-top box' symbol in the 'connected device' menu has a symbol on it that it is configured?

Don't think that using a USB hub will help.

Settings → All Settings → Programme → Programme Tuning and Settings → Programme List Update → Off

This issue happens because your TV is trying to search for updates within the TV's channel listings. This was something that was implemented with the latest software versions because the governing body who look after the channels wanted the TV to scan for updates at 4am in the morning. This means that your TV will switch to your Live TV for this update, and cause your TV to default to that input instead of the last input used as it thinks it was the last one. Turning this off will stop this process and hopefully keep your last input used on.

      When i power on my OLED55C8PLA TV it always starts at the source 'SET UP BOX' even there is no set up box connected. We only use HDMI2. That is also always the used source when we power down the TV. Its quite anoying the TV doesnt starts the input last used.
      I hope someone can help me with this issue!

      We have a 65UM7300AUE with software version 05.40.10. We have a Google TV dongle plugged into the HDMI 1 port and that is the input we use most of the time. Until recently every time we would turn the TV on it would default to HDMI 1 and the Google TV home screen would be the first thing we’d see. Life was good. Several weeks ago that changed and now the LG OS (I assume) home screen is the first thing we see. Then we have to use the LG remote to select HDMI 1 each time. We never used to have to do this or use the LG remote at all. Kind of annoying. We think we have HDMI 1 chosen as our default input but it doesn’t seem to matter. Any ideas on how we get things back to the way they used to be with the TV defaulting to HDMI 1 automatically?

      I have a couple of LG OLEDs in shared spaces, with external speakers, one via optical and the other via analog jack (confusingly named headphones). Whenever bluetooth headphones are used and then disconnected, the TV reverts to "internal" terrible audio. For non-technical people this is permanent. Do I have to train everyone to select the device from the long list or can I set a default?

      I bought this new TV last week and it is honestly driving me bananas. 
      When I click "Home" after using an App, etc, it brings me to the WebOS interface but then automatically selects the last used device (e.g. Fire stick, LG Channels, etc) despite me not wanting it to. 
      Is it possible to disable this, i.e. "Home" brings me to WebOS and stays there? I'm sure its a setting etc which I'm missing. 
      Device is LG UQ91 43 inch 4K Smart UHD TV, pretty sure its all up to date. 
      Thanks in advance.
