How do you use the Favorites channel list for cable?

Ok, the "list" button now shows just my favorites.  I'm not quite sure why.  I'm pretty sure it showed ALL of the channels before, but I just went to the rename of the favorite group dialog and I think that may have flipped some flag in the code.  Now it just shows my favorite TV changes and I can navigate through them.  So that is only a couple of clicks to go to the next favorite.  

Two other buttons would have been nice on the magic remote.  One to record what I'm watching.  The other would have been a "goto next favorite" channel.

Nemilose:  I don't see a way to export the favorites, but there is a "flip order" button that would allow you to rearrange things probably easier than an export, rearrange, import operation.

Custom channel sorting is a challenge. Favourites is your best bet where you basically end up with types of sort. By channel number or name, or the order in which you add the channels.

You can then adjust the order of those channels by using the swap channel position order. This is basically useless as you have to choose 2 channels to swap position which in reality is no good. Say you add a new channel, it will go to bottom of favourites. now you want to move this to say the 3rd position. Using swap the channel currently in 3rd postion would end up in the last position which means your previously sorted channel list is messed up.

I have a live LG support question open which apparently is now with development team. My idea is when you add a channel from All to Favourites instead of adding to the last position instead it would place it above the currently selected favourite channel. Fingers crossed this gets implemented.

I ended up tossing the magic remote, plugging all devices into the AVR and HDMI from there to TV.  Then bought Logitech Elite remote with hub.  Now I have favorite buttons on the remote for all the favorite channels.  Then I also made a button on the remote learn the "fav" of the cable box remote which runs through the list of favorites on the cable box.

      Hi to all! 
      I'm really new into this and have a problem. My 2018 LG 55UJ635V-ZF has only webOS 3 (latest; ethernet-automatic download) an i can't use airplay or miracast. The apps i found in the store for mirroring are only pay2use to use this needed feature for me.
      On the LG Homepage i can't find an upgrade for my TV an maybe is my tv really to old for upgrades or am i wrong?
      Maybe someone can help me out or bring some light for me in this.
      I also found the suggestions on this site for the firmware 4.70.70 (for the UJ's), but i can't download....error.
      sorry for my bad english 🙂
      thx for your help, quartex.

      Hello, 
      I have recently purchased an LG C2 Oled TV which I connected with my Samsung HW-Q800B 5.1 soundbar via eArc HDMI. When I select "Passthrough" as a Digital Sound Output on LG TV sound advanced settings, there is an obvious sound response delay around 3 seconds when I pause and unpause the movie on Netflix or Prime video streaming apps on LG TV. For example, when I start the movie, the video starts and sound starts 2-3 secs later. When I pause the movie, the sound continues for 2-3 secs after the video has been stopped. There is no any lip sync issue, just this response delay of the sound from the soundbar. This happens only on LG TV Apps. If I connect to an external HDMI device such as AMAZON Fire Stick 4K, there is no such sound delay issue neither on Netflix neither on Prime Video. 
      Thus, the problem seems to be on LG TV apps.
      If I change the Digital Sound Output to "Auto" instead of "Passthrough" the issue is gone but sound quality is not as good as with Passthrough selected. So I do not want this to be my option.
      I would appreciate if someone could come with a solution on this.

      CBS Catchup, Discovery+, POP player, and UKTV Play always need updating. Even seconds after you just updated them. It started doing this a few days ago.
      Who can I contact to get this fixed?
      Since the "apps need updating" notification now always appears when I switch the TV on, I now have no way of telling if anything really does need updating other than going into the LG content store, clicking Apps, clicking My Apps, and visually checking.

      Hello,
       
      my TV (UP80003LR) (with latest WebOS: 6.3.2-423 )works fine expect for one problem with HbbTV (Hybrid TV).
      While watching HbbTV there are periodical gaps of silence of durations ~0.5 sec. every ~10 sec, so It`s very difficult to watch TV.
      Earlier gaps occured once a minute so it was kinda bearable.
       
      Internet is connected though LAN cable.
      Have tried tune sound options, but it didn`t helped, so have and reseted TV settings to initial, but it didn`t helped too.
      So now i am kinda desperate. 
      What can be sure of is that problem is local with TV, because there are no problems with TV picture and there are no problem on second TV (Samsung).
       
      Thank for any ieads.

      My magic remote and my Roku remote stopped working for turning off power so I performed a factory reset after troubleshooting to get the remote working.  I am now stuck at the 1st screen of the Factory Reset which says "Press the OK Button(wheel) on your remote."  Well... this really stinks because the remote doesn't work!!!  I have tried a USB mouse, a new magic remote, other LG Remotes with no luck.  I have also tried using the button on the bottom of the tv.  And, I contacted support which was just an exercise in redoing everything I had already tried... No Luck!!
      This is a Nano Cell 55NANO81ANA which is basically just a big brick now since I cannot even use any of the inputs.  Does anyone have a trick for getting past this initial screen???
      Thanks for the help.
