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


NikD63

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?

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.

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?

      Hi LG
      When playing a video file that is 3840 x 2160 (UHD) in OLED55CX (4K), there is a small black bar at the top and bottom. Is the TV supposed to upscale automatically to its 4k resolution which is 4096 x 2160? How do I upscale it without picture being cut of?
      Regards,
      Anish

      I have a LG TV model 55EG9A7T and I have been trying to connect my sennheiser bluetooth headphones using the wireless sound sync for the longest time but it is not able to find the device under available devices.
      I tried to call in LG tech support - but no one seems sure whether only LG brand headphones are supported. 
      Does anyone know if only LG headphones are supported?

      When I navigate to a website that streams  audio content, e.g. knkx.org, the audio stream is not played. Have tried several such sites and encountered the same lack of audio. All other audio is played normally. 
       
      Is there a setting I must select?

      Is it possible to install/add different browser in webOS? The default browser that came with TV has some issues (playing videos in Youtube, in full screen mode, just kept refreshing, in other modes plays find, other online streaming seems not working as well). In PC those sites worked just fine, without any problem.

      I bought an LG 49UK6200PLA in Spain, but on the LG Spanish site, there's no such model listed, how can I register this product? It seems this model is for UK, but for some reason it's also sold in Spain.
