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.

      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?

      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?

      Hi there, I have the following tvs:
      And I'm trying to change the area code using the service remote, so I can download apps from USA (I'm currently in the UK), such as Max, HULU etc.  I'm trying the codes which are bandied around the internet, but the area just stays as EU.  I've noticed on youtube videos etc that the older models with the older OS have no issued with this, but mine seems unable to change.
      Does anyone know if perhaps the newer models have newer codes?  I've used 1793, 1843 and 22287 (as found in this very forum).  But nothing happens.  Any help from users who may have got this working would be appreciated, thank you.

      New OLED C3. New setup and I can’t change channels using tv magic remote- I have to use set top box remote. Verified setup with LG tech today and it is correct. Upon him checking for solutions he said there is a software bug that is not allowing the magic remote to change channels. Stated a fix is in works but doesn’t know when it will be available. Asked for a supervisor and was told one would call back in a few hours but they didn’t. I can return the tv now but was wondering if others are having this issue and for how long. I don’t want to get stuck with a tv with multiple remotes.
