USB Always On Option

Question

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 around the menus and could not find. Thanks

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.

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.

      How do I turn off screen when listening to music
    • By raspia
      Hello everyone.
      First of all sorry about my english.
      Since my  55´ SM8200PLA was updated to 5.00.02 version, every time I turn on the tv, ´ivi loading´ message appears, then gets into LG Content Store, and then shows ´This content is not available´ and hitting OK, goes back to my HDMI connection as per usual.
      Once the tv is showing programs, if I get into LG Store, everything is normal and works properly.
      How can I get rid of this annoying issue?
      My WebOS version is: 4.9.0-53902 and the running firmware is as mentioned above 5.00.02
      Thanks in advance.
      Regards

      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?

      WiFi button in off position can’t turn on?

      I purchased a LG OLED TV in December 2017.  It is great, except for one annoyance. Every 15 minutes, a  HDMI2 popup appears in the center of the screen. It disappears after a few seconds.  This repeats ad infinitum.  My TV connections are  very simple.  One coax cable input to the Cable Box.   HDMI output from the Cable Box  to the TV's HDMI1 input.   The coax output from the Cable Box is connected to a Magnavox DVR.  The DVR is connected to the TV's  HDMI2 input .   The DVR is "off" when we watch normal TV on the HDMI1.   I've searched the internet for a solution, without success.  Any ideas?
