Ease of power cords and cleanliness of wires. The USB ports are right there and unless I were to attach a thumb drive, I am not sure what purpose they serve besides offering power.

Is there an option somewhere to turn the USB ports to always be powered on? I two LG TVs and have a Chrome Cast and a Fire TV plugged in that I would like to remain on even when the TV is off. Looked

Ever find a solution to this? I would really like to have this option as well

Why don't you use an external power adaptet? 

thanks for the idea!  I, too, was looking for cord management and this idea never occurred to me.  I busted out the USB extension & power adaptor I sure was going straight to the landfill and problem solved: we dont have to wait for the Roku to boot & probably what was more concerning was the TV freaks out while the Roku boots (flashes black multiple times) & once crashed the display driver to the point of being all green with lots of vertical black lines - unplugging the TV was the only way to reboot it.  needless to say, on a 1d old TV, not very comforting - now we dont have to worry about this failure vector!

and, for the record, it would be great if WebOS had a s/w switch to enable USB ports to always be powered.

      Anyone having issues with Homekit showing 'updating' message after TV have been turned off? (OLED65BX6LB purchased Feb2021)
      Can turn off via Homekit...can change inputs. Can use ThinQ to turn off.
      Have tried to disable all Eco modes, turn on "Turn on with Wireless" but to no avail.
      Anyone found a solution?

      Hey there,  I have had a  OLED55B6P for ten months and I love it but

      I have a problem all a sudden, just today it starts to show a black screen with fire works every minutes if I don't press a button on the remote.

      I have no eco mode on, no power save modes on, TV firmwire is up to date, and tried turning off on and on the tv.

      anyone know how to fix?

      I just got a new TV (43UN7000PUB) and can’t get HomeKit to work properly.  It works fine when the TV is on but won’t work when the TV is off.
      I have seen several threads on this and done some research but did not find a resolution.
      I read several threads that blamed it on the Magic Remote and Bluetooth.  This TV does not have the Magic Remote so I think that can be ruled out.
      One thread pointed out that when the TV is off it loses it’s LAN connection and it’s WI-FI connection and said that could be the problem.  I can confirm this is true with mine as well.  This argument makes perfect sense to me as all connections would be lost when the TV is off.  
      If anyone can help I’d surely appreciate it.
      One thread said the problem was fixed with a FW update.  But that was with a different model and a different FW than mine.  As I recall from memory it was something like FW xx.35.10 and it was a 55” or 65” TV.  My firmware says it is current with version 3.21.36.
      Maybe a moderator could confirm the firmware fix already exists for this issue.  If so, could you please see that it gets pushed out to all HomeKit TVs instead of just that single model?
      Thanks in advance for any help or comments.

      My new LG TV (65UM6900PUA) running WebOS 04.71.25 works great with HomeKit, with the exception that it is not reachable while it is turned off. If I try to turn it on in the home app, it says "No Response."  I have changed the 'Turn on via Wi-Fi' setting to on, and it will turn on from the 'LG TV Plus' app, but not from the iOS home app. Is there a specific setting or something I need to change?

      If you are using Chrome browser and I worry about online privacy. Then you should use an extension which gives you 100% secure browsing experience and complete online anonymity. Only PureVPN extension can give you all you need like data security, strong encryption, access geo locked content, different country IP addresses and more. So, don't wait and get hurry to add PureVPN extension on your chrome browser and enjoy anonymous browsing.
