Question

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?

When you setup your tv don't say you have live channels. If you don't do this, it will not display the live tv any more. 

You have to choose settopbox and then select the sky box.

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:

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,

Peter

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.

In my tv I think I used 'connect-device' and selected a decoder box. Do you have a decoder box in your connect-device part?

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.

Probably not but cant think of anything else?

 

If somebody just played an X-box on their new tv most of the time it must be possible to change a setting so the tv starts on that source?

 

ridiculous if you cant?

 

I sent Lg another email, probably get the same reply.

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 FINALLY found a fix for this. Well, really a workaround, but it solved the problem for me. I went into parental settings and set a passcode lock on the live tv and component inputs. Now, my tv starts up perfectly on whatever HDMI input I last used.

    • Question: How can I change the screensaver pictures ???

      Hi, just bought a new LG OLED and pretty fast noticed that I`ve now chance to change the wallpapers ?!?
      Really pretty strange - even the smallest smartphone offers such a feature. The TV has enough USB interfaces - why is it not able to customize this by an own set of pictures ?
      Can`t be that big rocket science to implement this , especially for such an expensive device this should be a standard feature !!!

      Or did I  miss something in the settings of the TV ?

    • Question: Request: Simplelink will disable upon Sound output change

      In current state of firmware the simplelink function will disable itself when switching through sound output quick menu. I am trying to switch between TV output and External Aux output (headphones) as I don't use my home cinema speakers all the time. But between those 2 options there is a "optical"  output which cannot be enabled at the same time as the HDMI-CEC/Simplelink funciton so the TV will disable it BUT not re-enable it after you move to external aux output (or any other not conflicting with the settings). This is highly frustrating as you must one again navigate to the full settings menu / general / hdmi-cec and enable it manually. So I am making this request. Thank you

    • Question: OLED55C8: Can I have a different source on power up?

      I just got an OLED55C8. I won't have a cable or antenna connection to it, nor will I have any other devices physically connected to it. So there are no input sources to choose from. Everything I view will be coming through WiFi. Whenever I turn on the TV, it comes on with the TV source selected. And because I have no signal sources connected to it I get a random noise picture and sound. If the volume was up high on the previous viewing, the random noise is pretty loud. It can be pretty jarring at times. Is there some way I can set it so that upon power-up one of my streaming apps, such as YouTube TV or Netflix, is selected? Or can it come on with the volume off and on the home screen? If not, is there some way I can at least set the default volume level used at power on?

    • Question: Please help - how to change the default open screen - I dont have live tv

      I just bought a lg b7 oled and have a problem. I dont subscribe to cable so I wont ever be using it on this tv. Every time I start the tv it loads the OS and the cable-less static comes on the screen and BLASTS through the speakers. The tiles for netflix, hulu, etc are at the bottom so I choose one of those. How do I stop the tv from defaulting to turning on the "tv" that clearly doesnt exist? Ive tried deleting the tile for live tv, and even moving it to the far right side but still every time I turn n the tv - static with the menu on the bottom.
