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.

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.

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.

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

      Hi,
      I have following LG Smart TV :
      Model: 42LM620T-ZE (Software version: 04.62.12  ;  SDK Version: 02.08)
      Does my TV have webOS ??
      It was purchased in summer 2012 so I know its quite old now.
      Also how to check if this TV has Netcast (perhaps 3.0 or  4.0) ??
      Let me know.

      Hi
      I've got the LG OLED55B7V. I have connected a Chromecast to HDMI4 and USB power from USB port 3. Is there any way to not turn off usb power on this USB port, or any other USB port, when turning off the TV?
      Since webOS still doesn't have a Spotify app i need a Chromecast to listen to music, and so i would like to have the Chromecast powered from the TV but the TV turned off. I know i can use screenmode to only turn off the screen, but since i can't enable that with a single button from my remote control this isn't a good enough solution.

      We need to buy a large number of 4K Smart TVs. We only need to display our plain text events list published on our web server. No RF Tuner, no multiple ports, no multiple apps, no other advanced features needed.

      We evaluated your LG 43UJ6300 Ultra HD Smart TV (2017 model). This TV has many more features than we need but yet missing a couple of crucial ones. We could not find anyway to automatically start web browser on start up and we could not disable its screensaver. How do we set & save these two kiosk settings?
