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.

      For much of the last decade, digital transformation, also known as DX, has become a top business agenda for companies across all industries. But what exactly is digital transformation and why should consumers care? Hopefully after reading this, you’ll have a better idea of what DX is and why LG has made this a priority going forward.
      In simplest terms, DX is an organization’s effort to accelerate its existing business model through the integration of advanced technologies. As a company centered around the concept of providing the best consumer electronics, appliances and services to make life better for everyone, LG Electronics is fully committed to digitizing its business model and modernizing its operations. This is why in 2019 we revamped our Cloud Center into the Digital Transformation Technology (DXT) Center to drive next-generation businesses such as big data, service platforms and LG ThinQ.

      As one of the key drivers of our digital transformation, LG ThinQ is much more than an artificial intelligence interface for LG home appliances. LG’s AI solution seamlessly combines new technologies and machines across its wide range of offerings, such as smart TVs, refrigerators, air purifiers and even vacuum cleaners.

      In 2018 alone, LG Electronics sold more than 70 million smart TVs and 5 million ThinQ-related home appliances across the world. While the popularity of these smart products was great news for LG, the sudden high level of activation were taking a toll on our servers and infrastructure. It was clear that LG had to fully digitalize, working closely with key partners to implement IoT solutions because although LG is proud of its strong manufacturing legacy, it was obvious that this transformation would require the know-how of different kinds of experts.

      Since the launch of LG Cloud, LG experienced a dramatic change in two key areas: cost reduction and the way we work. To increase efficiency, we focused on creating a serverless cloud environment that didn’t require large server racks that took up valuable space or needed regular maintenance. We wanted a system which service providers could manage everything themselves while ensuring it ran safely and securely 24/7. What we ended up with was a system that enabled LG to save up to 80 percent on development costs.

      Launching new services can be incredibly expensive and an organization’s development department would have to be certain that an investment was worth the money before committing. For businesses, the high initial costs of a new IT infrastructure project can kill an idea even before it gets off the ground.

      The way in which our employees are working has also changed for the better. Being able to work from the cloud gives employees space to have discussions with product development teams from the very beginning of a project. This makes working together much easier, especially on projects that involve many moving parts.
      Aligned with LG’s commitment to achieving a better life for all, the DTX Center will continue working tirelessly to implement even more new and innovative ways of working that bring more convenience to not only its consumers, but its valued employees as well.
      By Dr. Kim Dong-wook, DTX Center Head

      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.

      Hi,
      Is there an app or a way to enhanced safety mode that I can prevent children from using TV after midnight?
      Thanks for help.

      On my oled55bxpua, how do I use Bluetooth connected to my hearing aids and internal speakers at the same time?
      Currently if I use Bluetooth, the internal speakers are turned off. This happens even if I choose Bluetooth + Internal speakers.
      In this case I am the only one who can hear the TV.
