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


Question

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.

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...

Unfortunately I am in America and this is not an option on our menus. I posted this on a few forums and called LG twice. I either have to turn my TV  on to blaring static every time,  or have it turn on to a HDMI input  screen where a pop up window asks if I want to  search for an input every time. The reason LG gave me both times was that a TV is built to use cable, and that won't  be changing any time soon. I will be returning this TV for another brand.

I have a C7, no cable, just like you. Mine has never done what you describe so there must be some option to prevent it. Not entirely sure what it would be, but I have 'Channel Plus' and 'Live Plus' turned off. It defaults to the Home Theater input.

I have a b7. There are no channel plus or live plus option in any menu.

First I had live tv using an antenna. Now I have a set-top box. In the connection manager menu (I think) I told the system I had a set-top box on HDMI-2 and now the TV always starts on HDMI-2.

If I do that it opens to a pop up screen asking if I want to search inputs.

i got this reply on my post, not sure if its relevant to you but:

 

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.

In Device Connector I selected 'decoder'. After this I also changed the functions of the Magic Remote.

Now I select 'Input' I can see the live TV is still selectable, but al the options are grey.

Also in 'setup' I can not select channels any more.

 

Of course I don't remember exactly what I have done 2 years ago, or maybe they have changed the options in newer version of WebOS. The only thing I can think of is reseting the TV and while going to the options select you don't have an antenna.

      I just bought a OLEDG177PUA with what I assume is webos 6.  Why is there not a setting available for me to set the default home screen.... to the home screen?  I am constantly ending up on some random live LG TV channel, and having to wrestle it to go "back" to "home" by pressing the home button over and over.  At the very least let me easily switch to a gallery picture as a home screen option.  It's a gallery TV after all is it not?
      I haven't watched live TV since 2003. With all the app options on the home screen now, why on earth would I need to start now? Please enable a way to make live TV stop being the default. It was bad enough that I had to endure a static screen to constantly wrestle back out of to get to the home screen, but I'm not sure what's worse, static or Ancient Aliens. 🙄
       
      Also explain HBO Max. How do you guys have ancient aliens but not HBO Max?

      My new gallery series OLED TV died after less than two months. For weeks now, I have been calling LG support for help. The have created multiple repair tickets, but they have not been to get a repair technician out to fix the problem.
      LG keeps trying to outsource the repair to 3rd party service companies. Does anyone know how I can find a local tech that works for LG to come out and fix it?
      If not, what recourse do I have?
      Thank you.

      I recently updated the firmware on my  LG43UH610V.  Now I constantly get "Wired Lan cable disconnected" / "Wired network is connected" messages even while watching a video file from my NAS. The TV is connected and using the network while getting these messages. It has always been on a fixed IP address on the LAN.
