I recently updated the firmware on my LG43UH610V. Now I constantly get "Wired Lan cable disconnected" / "Wired network is connected" messages even while watching a video file from my NAS. The TV is connected and using the network while getting these messages. It has always been on a fixed IP address on the LAN.

Please consider adding a new menu for 2017 OLED's in HDR Game mode preset called "Static Tone Mapping" to picture options with a selection of 4000 nits (default) or 1000 nits.
The reason so many complain about dim HDR on 2017 OLED's is down to an overly tone mapped image, game consoles HDR titles are mastered in 1000 nits range, LG's default tone mapping is set to 4000 nits and because the consoles do not send any HDR metadata, LG tone maps 1000 nits content to 4000 nits. We know this is the cause as advanced tools like HD Fury Vertex can trick the TV into thinking it's 1000 nits content and give correct looking HDR (very complex thing to setup far beyond normal users).
This is entirely fixable by giving us a menu under game mode to force the TV to tone map to 1000 nits instead. If you read around online I'm almost certain this is what the special "Active HDR dynamic contrast = low" under Cinema mode does but this setting is not the same under any other preset. Maybe the "Active HDR" trick is not possible under game mode but forcing the TV to 1000 nits tone mapping is because the HD Fury Vertex can do it so the TV has the capability.
The 2018 models do not have this issue as they have "Dynamic Tone Mapping" under picture options so please throw us 2017 owners a bone on this, thanks.
(Yes game consoles could possible fix this by sending metadata but that's unlikely).

I have two LG OLEDs. I have given each a name in the WebOS. Occasionally when a TV is powered on, I am first requested to enter the TV name along with the dialog to enter text with the on screen keyboard. I can enter anything and it is accepted and I get past that screen and then normal operation follows. This happens on both TVs albeit only occasionally. It is a real nuisance when this happens and I see no need for this.
Has anyone else experienced this and if so, is there a solution to disable this behavior? Is there some setting that I have missed?

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?

I've had an LG 47LB6500 for about five months now. I love the TV and it's great. Except one thing that I find irritating is a constant AV input popup that keeps reappearing over, and over, and over.
While watching any content from any input, the popup appears.

The only device plugged to the TV is an HDMI Sky HDTV Set Top Box, and there is nothing plugged into any AV input. WebOS seems to enter some variable loop, displaying several of these popups in sequence. Often, the number of popups is such, that the TV will freeze trying to show all of them. I can only assume a lot of its CPU is being used to render them. The TV will become unresponsive until all popups disappear. The annoyance may last a couple of minutes, but it happens everytime the TV is turned back on.
From the input configuration screen, I can see the AV input is active.

Once it's removed, the popups are gone. But once the TV is turned off and back on, WebOS will scan for devices and these empty AV inputs are back on the list... and the parade of popups will follow.
As a user, I have to consder this a bug. And it's a very irritating one. These popups cover subtitles and seem to show up minutes after the TV is turned on. Please provide a fix with a firmware update or, at least, provide a workaround to make it stop.
