Losing Freeview channels on OLED55B7V


Phil D

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.

      The built in Web Browser will not play Videos on SOME websites after updating to WebOS Version 04.40.25 and 04.40.70. The web sites otherwise work fine. Here is an example that won't play since the 04.40.25 update ...

      Hi Team,
      After update of LG WebOS to 04.40.70, Amazon Prime Video app on my LG Smart TV stopped working. It started giving error :
      Internet Connectivity Problem
      There is an internet connection problem. Check the device's internet settings, data cables, or try to resetting your router. Also, turning your device off, and then back on might fix the problem. For further assistance, please contact Amazon customer service at www.amazon.com/videohelp
      The internet/wifi connection is fine and all the other apps are working without any issue on the LG smart TV.
      I have even tried uninstalling and reinstalling the Prime video app, but that didn't help.
      Has anyone faced this issue ? Is there a solution available for this issue.
      Thanks & Regards,
      Nitin

      LG Electronics Tennessee Plant is Selected as Industry’s First U.S.
      Home Appliance Lighthouse Factory by World Economic Forum

      SEOUL, Jan. 16, 2023 — LG Electronics’ (LG) home appliance manufacturing plant in the United States has been selected as a world-leading Lighthouse Factory by the
      link hidden, please login to view. The million-square-foot factory in Clarksville, Tennessee – the U.S. production base for LG’s award-winning washers and dryers – is the industry’s first home appliance plant in the United States to join the WEF’s global network. Also, it is the company’s second Lighthouse Factory, following on the heels of the LG Smart Park in Changwon, South Korea, which was selected by the WEF last year.
      A “Lighthouse Factory” is recognized by the WEF for its role in shaping the future of manufacturing through the integration of Internet of Things (IoT), big data, artificial intelligence (AI), robots and other Fourth Industrial Revolution technologies. Since 2018, the WEF has selected and added global factories to its network twice a year.
      LG’s world-class autonomous factory in Tennessee utilizes advanced digital technologies from AI and big data to IoT and robots. Completed at the end of 2018, the facility now operates three production lines for front-load and top-load washing machines and dryers. With an annual production capacity of 1.2 million washers and 600,000 dryers, the plant proactively responds to changing North American demand through local production. More than 900 people work at the LG home appliance factory in Montgomery County, Tenn.
      Featuring a complete integrated production system streamlined process to supply impeccable products to customers on time, each line carries out the entire manufacturing process of new models from making the parts to assembly and packaging. In addition, strict quality conditions are applied to all the assembly lines to heighten quality across the board, from parts to finished products.
      The LG Tennessee factory boasts a fully autonomous logistics system with 166 automated guided vehicles (AGVs) that transport parts around the plant. With three times more AGVs than the LG Smart Park, these robots improve overall productivity by freeing up people for other tasks.
      With the integration of parts production such as metal press processing, plastic injection molding, and painting – including LG’s own intelligent injection molding system – the company has increased component productivity by 21 percent.1 In addition, the plant recognizes and responds in advance to potential productivity issues through an advanced detection system. By applying data-based AI technology that accurately predicts washing machine performance, the number of tests and energy consumed during testing are reduced by 22 percent, while the defect rate has been reduced by more than 61 percent via quality optimization.2
      The plant is also maximizing workplace safety and operational efficiency by using robots for complicated, potentially dangerous tasks, such as assembling and lifting heavy parts and welding.
      To further improve efficiency, LG plans to establish a 5G connectivity network across the facility in the second half of this year, creating an environment where its many AGVs can transport materials faster and more accurately based on stable, uninterrupted communication. LG will also introduce Autonomous Mobile Robots that navigate the expansive facility with ease to enhance its logistics system.
      LG’s commitment to sustainability can be seen throughout the Tennessee factory, which transitioned to renewable energy completely already in 2022. The plant also uses a high-efficiency utility infrastructure, which supplies the power, steam and heat necessary to produce LG’s home appliance products with the help of the company’s advanced Building Energy Control (BECON) solution.
      “Along with the LG Smart Park, LG’s Tennessee factory represents our unmatched leadership in transforming manufacturing facilities into advanced, futuristic hubs utilizing the most revolutionary technologies,” said Lyu Jae-cheol, president of the LG Electronics Home Appliance & Air Solution Company. “Lighthouse Factory status exemplifies how LG continues to strive for providing differentiated customer experiences through customized manufacturing innovations.”

      Good afternoon,
      I bought the LG C2 TV 30 days ago, everything works normally, now I went to use the ALEXA function:
      I have an ECHO DOT 3, I did all the procedures, I downloaded LG THINGS, I ACTIVATED THE TV SKILLS, the TV SPEAKERS, I linked the accounts EVERYTHING PERFECT, all commands work: TV ON/OFF, SOUND UP/DOWN, CHANGE CHANNELS, CHANGE DOORS, OPEN APPLICATIONS NETFLIX / PRIMEVIDEO, etc etc ....
      But after a while the TV is MUTE, NO SOUND comes out in ALL CHANNELS, IN ALL APPLICATIONS, not even turning the TV off using the CONTROL BUTTON or VOICE COMMAND does the SOUND work.... Only when I unplug the SOCKET does the SOUND come back... .but after some time the same thing happens.... I reset the television from the factory and redid all the procedures and the same thing....
      This also happens when I give a command to open NETFLIX/YOUTUBE the sound sometimes stops.
      I did the ALEXA only through the TV APP without the ECHO ... and the same problem happens.
      Could it be some SOFTWARE BUG? My TV is updated until TODAY 12/29/22 with the latest FIRMWARE, ALEXA is also updated.
