I recently bought myself a LG OLED42C24LA. I’m very happy with it apart from one issue I have noticed.
When watching hd channels using the built in antenna tuner the sound repeatedly cuts out just for a mili second each time. This is usually when there is a lot of background sound and lots of movement in the picture or if its moving from from one cut to the next. So things like an action sequence.
This does not happen if I’m watching the same program on sd on the built in tuner or in hd on a set top box or on iPlayer. Otherwise the picture and sound are great. This makes me think its something to do with the tv and the inbuilt tuner.
The tv is reporting the signal strength as 95% and signal quality at 100%.
My intention was that this tv could replace the set top box I’m paying talk talk for. I’m hoping this group may have seen this before or have some suggestions on how to resolve this. I did search the forum for similar questions but didn’t see anything I could use.
I’d really appreciate any help you can give me.

As the new era of driving closes in, automakers are focusing more on the in-vehicle experience during development, especially the automotive display – the best way to unlock greater productivity and entertainment on the road. In this episode of Mobility Inside, we’ll unearth how the automotive display trend is changing for the better.
Automotive displays deliver useful information about interior and exterior conditions. They include the ‘Center Information Display’ (CID), which shows overall information, the ‘cluster,’ which displays the speedometer and engine status, and the ‘head-up display’ (HUD), which reflects information onto the windshield.
As cars become more autonomous in many features and functions, automotive display trends reshape to match new consumer demands. So, what do these futuristic dashboards do exactly?
Switching from one-way to two-way communication

In the past, cars would simply relay the traffic information necessary for driving via one-way communication. But as automotive displays advance, the driver, the vehicle and external devices are seamlessly exchanging more and more information.
Take your navigation app as an example of this in action. After inputting your destination, the system calculates the optimal route and ranks alternate ones based on traffic, which the driver can choose between based on their preference. In addition to traffic information, the vehicle’s temperature and external environment can be expressed, and the most recent displays even support voice, facial and gesture recognition technologies. In other words, it’s the new medium between the driver, vehicle and external elements that enables constant communication.
Going beyond basic traffic information

In 2022, we’re spoilt by all the live information we can view as we cruise. And in the not-so-distant future, cars will automatically provide information tailored to the driver through personal profiles, which means it works for shared cars too.
Cars will soon be able to identify the driver and passengers so that it can provide information based on their age or the time of day. For instance, someone on their way to the office could receive the latest business news, current road conditions or weather forecasts, whereas a high school student in uniform may be given info on popular textbooks, nearby restaurants or the week’s hottest songs. Like smartphones, automotive displays curate information, deliver smart experiences and even provide customized information on the go.

Since people process most external information visually, the latest automotive displays are digital to make checking information at a glance easier and have fewer physical buttons courtesy of a touch interface that ensures changing settings is safer and more convenient.
Applying the high-end material to match

Automotive displays are quickly becoming the centerpiece of the interior, largely because they act as a personal hub for all information and devices. That’s why applying materials and form factors that meet the needs of discerning consumers is more important than ever. Automotive displays use premium, high-quality materials for the elegant look that’s now all the rage. And the future looks even more remarkable with unique form factors like Plastic OLED (POLED) and rollable displays making their way into several markets.
Switching from general information to personalized information
When connecting to external devices, the automotive display leverages connectivity services to open new possibilities. Unlike a decade ago when the driver had two choices – the navigation or the radio, automotive displays now offer convenient, personalized services that take convenience and entertainment to a whole new level.
Occupants can connect a smartphone to check their schedule or work while on the move, listen to music based on their unique profile, find places close by or personalize their screen with a few touches of the display. With car displays becoming an indispensable part of the driving experience, their screens are getting bigger, curvier and more flexible so that they can show more information and help create the most luxurious interiors.
CID: Connecting people to their car
CID, the most famous among automotive displays, presents driving status info as well as entertainment to effectively serve as a Human Machine Interface (HMI). Located in the center of the vehicle, CID gives the driver and passenger access to a range of convenient features including audio, video, navigation, HVAC and Bluetooth controls, through an intuitive and simple user experience.
LG Electronics (LG) Vehicle component Solutions (VS) Company makes certain its CID is the best by staying in close communication with global premium automakers, which is why it’s now featured in several iconic vehicles – and counting.
The outstanding quality of LG’s CID has been certified by A-SPICE (Automotive Software Process Improvement and Capability dEtermination), an internationally-recognized quality certification model created by European automakers to evaluate the quality of software design, verification and management.
LG’s CID acquired A-SPICE certifications in 2016, 2019 and 2021. Its most recent certification, A-SPICE Level 2 (2021), not only proves that LG’s development process meets international standards for quality control and monitoring, but it also recognizes the company’s unparalleled development capabilities.
Moreover, LG received Excellent Vendor Awards in 2014, 2017 and 2020 for the 9.3-inch gapless curved CID used by the Renault Group, developed using proprietary technology to invent a smooth design that harmonized with the interior.
LG’s CID was also awarded the Daimler Automotive Group’s Inspiration Award in 2020, the same year its revolutionary P-OLED cockpit was awarded the coveted GM Innovation Award at General Motors’ Annual Supplier of the Year Awards.
LG will continue to innovate its mobility technologies as it strives to create an HMI that connects passengers to the automobiles of the future for that next-level driving experience.

We ran an ARC sound bar with surround sound on a C9 OLED TV - this works fine . I would like to add a bluetooth headphone for my partner to use as her hearing is getting worse but key is to operate both the sound bar and the bluetooth headphones at same time - Has anyone done this . I can see away to do it with internal speaker option but quaility of speakers is not too good on the C9.
[LG 4K 49UF772V] Small black squares covering display on main LG overlay (settings, apps, etc) but HDMI input works flawlesslyBy Virus17
Hi all, I have this 4K LG 49UF772V TV which has had this issue since I bought it second hand and I'm wondering if anyone has any idea how it can be fixed as I am looking to sell it.
The issue: On the LG menu and main home screen + sub menus and programs such as Netflix, there are black squares all over the display which makes it impossible to use. However, the TV works flawlessly when using the display with a HDMI device connected.
I suspect this could be either a software issue since there's no physical defects with the display itself. The TV has the latest software update running (04.06.25). I've attempted to reflash it and downgrade it but I haven't managed to find a way to do it.
Also note that only 1 of the 3 HDMI ports work. The other two gives no output when a device is connected.
I have also carried out a factory reset and this has not made a difference.
I have attached a short video showing the TV connected to chromecast and the display working as expected and then pressing the settings button yields artifacts/small black squares. + some pictures showing this.
Thank you in advance!
