Losing Freeview channels on OLED55B7V

Question

I've seen some old posts (over a year) via a google search about the issue I'm having which seemed to be a bug then and apparently still is.

I have an OLED55B7V with the latest LG Firmware available according to the Update section on my TV which is 04.70.95.

My issue is that occasionally when I turn on the TV from Standby via the remote, the Freeview channels are no longer tuned and I am required to retune them. I don't experience any issues tuning them and they will stay tuned sometimes for a couple of days.

There doesn't seem to be anyway of reporting the bug. Is anyone else experiencing this issue or know of a way that I can resolve it?

Freeview are undergoing massive changes at the moment with constant changes to accommodate 4G services and the sell off of different bandwidths.  I have had to re-tune Freeview nearly every week for about the last three months.  While it may seem that after a retune there do not appear to be any differences in the channels it could be that they have been moved to a different broadcasting block.

The following site is very good for news on what is happening with free-to-view services in the UK:

Thanks for your reply. I dont think this is an issue with Freeview as all channels are lost rather than just the odd one. Also its not happening on other tvs in my house. I definitely think it's a firmware problem.

    • Question: how to "forget/skip" wrong XPLAY update

      Hello,   I've read on the XPLAY forum about various problems with the latest version, so I decided to postpone the update until the issues are solved. I really don't know where the problem is but the developer said: "They have approved a quiet old version what has no online update functionality and the only way to fix anything or add new functionality is to send it to LG QA team … but they arrrrr soooooo much slow. Ive send them (on several days ago) version latest dev version with online update functionality. It will allow me to react to bugs much faster …"   My setup is: TV: LG 55EG920V, WebOS 2.0, Software version 04.25.70 XPLAY: 20180322.1.2.8 (ONLINE) PLEX: 1.13.8.5395   The version available for update in LG content store is 2.189.171 (08.10.2018). Many users complained they couldn't login anymore after upgrading to this version.   Could you please tell me what is the correct version should I update and when it'll be available for my TV? Also, is there any way to skip this update?  I just want to avoid an accidental update which would broke the functionality...   Kind regards,

    • Question: because I can not install or update apps?

      Hi people,
       
      Recently bought one 49LF6350 and one 43LF6350 and the two models have the same problem, whenever I try to open an application, informs me that I have to update (required update, you must update this app to launch it. the update may cause data to be stored deleted.), and when I try to update, it gives an error message (application has not Been instaled. try again). It happens to apps also store to at new install. what may be occurring?
       
      software version: 3:03:04
      WebOS TV version: 2.0.2-3928 (behive-badlands)
       
      thanks.

      Hi.
      I am having some issues with wifi connectivity on my TV.
      Anything in the 1 tier of 5ghz channels I get proper speeds.
      But anything in the tier 2 or 3 gives me awful speeds.
      I have tested with multiple routers and accesspoints and the problem is the same on all of them.
      The only channels on the 5ghz band that give good speeds are tier 1 (34-64)
      Any firmware update planned ?

      I have a new lg 55uj634v tv and have an annoying issue.I live close to the border of Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland
      When I tune in my DTV,I get about 47 odd channels showing up on auto search,but when I go to watch them,The non Irish Channels all show up with Invalid Service with a little animation,so basically all the freeview Channels seem scrambled or something.
      Does anyone know what Invalid Service means or how I could get around this
