OLED55C8: Can I have a different source on power up?

Question

I just got an OLED55C8. I won't have a cable or antenna connection to it, nor will I have any other devices physically connected to it. So there are no input sources to choose from. Everything I view will be coming through WiFi.

Whenever I turn on the TV, it comes on with the TV source selected. And because I have no signal sources connected to it I get a random noise picture and sound. If the volume was up high on the previous viewing, the random noise is pretty loud. It can be pretty jarring at times.

Is there some way I can set it so that upon power-up one of my streaming apps, such as YouTube TV or Netflix, is selected? Or can it come on with the volume off and on the home screen? If not, is there some way I can at least set the default volume level used at power on?

There is another thread on this.... given the small number of views/comments to this one....let's move it to the other.....

But quickly.... you are not alone.... it's a stupid "feature" that was great when the family used to gather round and watch the radio.....

I heard from LG confirming that this is not possible. I went ahead and bought myself a cheap indoor antenna just to stop the noise. This was LG's response.

 

That's a real bummer. I only have YouTube TV. It really disrupts the user experience having to select the input every single time and wait for YouTube TV to open. Would be a very nice feature to have being able to change the startup to any app.

In response to your concern, there is no option to disable Live TV as it is the default input of the unit when there are no external devices connected to it. When the TV is powered back on, it will display the last input used. If you did not use an external device before turning off the TV, it will show Live TV as it is the only connection available through coaxial. It is also not possible for the unit to go back to the last application before it was turned on. This is because an application will close once you exit the app screen.

Maybe you can buy a cheap Chromecast to get a HDMI signal (and maybe better YouTube), or, you can use a Raspberry Pi.

Following up on this...you can start using quickstart and hold down the 1 key once the TV is on, but is there a way to automatically start an app when you power the TV on without having to do this? I want to have YouTube TV start when I press the power button.

My TV has a magic remote, so no 1 key to press. Is there an equivalent for magic remote?

      LIKE THOUSANDS OF OTHERS I WANTED TO SAVE MONEY BY CUTTING THE CORD AND GET RID OF CABLE. I GUESS THAT WAS MY FIRST MISTAKE. I SEARCHED ONLINE FOR OVER A MONTH FOR A SMART TV WITHIN MY PRICE RANGE.  LOOKED AT EVERYTHING I COULD THINK OF BEFORE I MADE A DECISION. ON EVERY THING I LOOKED AT NOTHING EVER SAID ANYTHING ABOUT THE MEMORY CAPACITY OF ANY SMART TV THAT I LOOKED AT SO I DIDNT EVEN THINK ABOUT IT. THAT WAS ANOTHER MISTAKE. I FINALLY DECIDED TO GET AN LG BECAUSE I ALSO HAVE 2 LG SMART PHONES THAT WORK GREAT SO AN LG TV SHOULD BE EVEN BETTER. I JUST KEEP MAKING THESE MISTAKES. WELL I FINALLY DECIDED ON A 55 INCH LG 556090PUA BECAUSE IT WAS WITHIN MY PRICE AND IT CAME WITH A FREE SOUND BAR PROVIDED BY THE ONLINE STORE I BOUGHT IT FROM. WELL I HOOKED EVERY THING UP AND WHEN I STARTED NOSING AROUND IN THE TV SETTINGS THAT IS WHEN I FOUND OUT THAT THIS SMART TV STRAIGHT OUT OF THE BOX BEFORE UPDATES AND BEFORE ANY APPS ARE INSTALLED ONLY COMES WITH 0.54 GB OF INTERNAL MEMORY. IM THINKING NOPE THIS HAS TO BE WRONG BECAUSE EVEN MY FIRESTICK HAS ALMOST 5 GB OF MEMORY  SO IT IS IMPOSSIBLE FOR A SMART TV TO HAVE ALMOST 10  TIMES LESS MEMORY THAN  A FIRESTICK. .ANOTHER MISTAKE. SO I WENT AND UPDATED 2 APPS THAT CAME PREINSTALLED WITH THE TV. I UPDATED YOUTUBE AND I UPDATED PRIME VIDEO. MY 0.54 FELL DOWN TO 0.42 GB.  LG CLAIMS THAT YOU CAN DOWNLOAD APPS ONTO THEIR TVS BUT YET HOW IS THAT EVEN POSSIBLE  WHEN EVERY PREINSTALLED APP ON THIS SMART TV NEEDS UPDATES BUT IF I UPDATE ANY MORE THAN THE 2 THAT I DID I WOULD BE OUT OF MEMORY AND THE LESS MEMORY THAT YOU HAVE THE SLOWER YOUR DEVICE  RUNS. I WOULD JUST LIKE TO KNOW WHO IN BLUE BLAZES EVER THOUGHT TO CALL THIS DUMBER THAN A DUMB TV A SMART TV.  SO NOW IN ORDER TO SAVE MONEY I HAVE TO SPEND MONEY. SCRATCHING MY HEAD ON THAT ONE. BUT IN ORDER FOR THIS SMART TV TO BE SMART I HAD TO BUY A FIRESTICK SO I CAN INSTALL PROGRAMS ON IT TO WATCH AS WELL AS BUY AN EXTERNAL MEMORY CARD TO SAVE THINGS TO. ITS A JOKE. THE SMARTEST THING ABOUT THIS TV IS LG ITSELF WHO DECIDED TO MAKE A DUMB TV AND PUT A SMART TV PRICE TAG ON IT. BECAUSE LG KNEW THAT A STUPID GUY LIKE MYSELF WOULD BUY IT FROM THEM AS LONG AS THEY JUST FUDGED THE DETAILS A LITTLE BIT. SO ME BUYING A SMART TV LEFT ME WITH 2 EMPTY POCKETS  WITH NOTHING TO SHOW FOR IT A SMART TV WITH ITS OWN VERSION OF THE SCARECROWS CLASSIC ON THE WIZARD OF OZ SINGING IF I ONLY HAD A BRAIN. AND LG THEY ARE LAUGHING AT ME THE ENTIRE TIME AS THEY ARE RUNNING THEMSELVES  ALL THE WAY TO THE BANK TO DEPOSIT MY CHECK AND CALLING ME A SUCKER. SO PAT YOURSELVES ON THE BACK LG. I ADMIT IT YOU GOT ME. BUT THAT MISTAKE WILL NEVER BE MADE AGAIN BY ME. AND ALSO IN HOPES OF OTHERS NOT MAKING THE MISTAKE THAT I DID I HAVE MADE POSTS ON REDDIT FACEBOOK YOUTUBE AND TWITTER ABOUT LG STEALING MONEY OUT OF A WORKING MANS POCKETS  AND I AM NOT DONE BADMOUTHING LG YET. SEVERAL PEOPLE WHO FOLLOWS MY VARIOUS POSTS HAVE GIVEN ME NEW IDEAS ON HOW I CAN GET MY MESSAGE OF LG RIPPING PEOPLE OFF. I DONT GET MAD I GET EVEN. YOU STOLE MONEY FROM ME SO I AM STEALING POTENTIAL CUSTOMERS FROM YOU JUST BY SPEAKING THE TRUTH. OF COURSE LG IF YOU WANT YOU COULD TRY AND SUE ME FOR TRYING TO BESMIRCH THE LG LOGO. BUT IF YOU DO THAT IT WOULD ONLY MAKE LG LOOK EVEN WORSE AND I CAN GUARANTEE YOU THAT IF I GET SUED THAT ALL THAT YOU WILL GET PAID BY ME WOULD BE MONTHLY INSTALLMENTS OF POCKET LINT BECAUSE THAT IS ALL THAT YOU LEFT ME WITH WHEN YOU SOLD ME A DUMB TV WITH A SMART PRICE TAG. BUNCH OF DAMN WANKERS.

      Hi there,
      I've just bought an oled55c8pla and vocals instructions are not working. When I try to use them a message pops up saying temporary connection error with server. Retry later (6022).
      On web browser vocal dictation is working perfectly so magic remote is working as well.
      Any tips? Already checked for updates (latest is 04.10.30), reset done, all agreement on user allowed, but nothing is solving.
      A solution will be really appreciated.
      Thanks
