Hi MaryAnn,

Sadly your LG TV is never going to work exactly like a ROKU device as while they are both capable of streaming media are two completely different devices with disparate interfaces and programming.  If you can let the forum know which model of TV you have and the problems you are experiencing the users will try and help you get to the stage where you are able to enjoy your purchase.

THE MODEL OF MY TV IS:   32LK540BPUA  EVERYTHING IS WRONG, I DON'T KNOW HOW TO SET IT UP, LIKE I SAID WHEN I GOT MY TV FOR CHRISTMAS I CALLED WHERE IT WAS BOUGHT AND THEY SAID IT WORKED LIKE A ROKU, I HAVE A ROKU AND BELIEVE ME IT CERTAINLY DON'T WORK LIKE A ROKU, I DIDN'T WANT TO TELL MY FAMILY TO SEND IT BACK, BUT I WOULD LOVE TO BE ABLE TO WATCH IT, AT THIS RATE NOT KNOWING WHAT TO DO TO MAKE IT DO ANYTHING I'M NEVER GOING TO BE ABLE TO WATCH IT.

Hi Maryann,

When the store you purchased the TV from tells you it is like a ROKU I am sure they only mean that it can provide streaming services in much the same way, the actual setup and day-to-day usage are going to be completely different. 

How far have you got with setting up the TV, can you even watch programmes via your aerial/dish yet?

      I just bought a lg b7 oled and have a problem. I dont subscribe to cable so I wont ever be using it on this tv. Every time I start the tv it loads the OS and the cable-less static comes on the screen and BLASTS through the speakers. The tiles for netflix, hulu, etc are at the bottom so I choose one of those. How do I stop the tv from defaulting to turning on the "tv" that clearly doesnt exist? Ive tried deleting the tile for live tv, and even moving it to the far right side but still every time I turn n the tv - static with the menu on the bottom.

      Have a LG TV 32LB650V which is updated to the latest firmware here in Sweden (05.05.01) and an Apple TV Gen4 (also updated to latest) connected to the HDMI ports. I used to use Simplink (HDMI-CEC) so that waking up the Apple TV would also wake up the TV. This worked well. Since some time ago, this does not always work. If I sleep the Apple TV, it shuts of the TV, but waking up the Apple TV wakes the TV maybe half of the times even though I follow the same procedure. Anyone experience the same thing or does your Simplink implementation works flawless every time?
       
      What I've tried so far:
      - Switching Simplink on and off
      - Resetting the TV to factory default
      - Switching HDMI inputs

      When I open the DSTV Now app on my lg tv I get the error “We’re sorry Something went wrong. Please try again.” 
      I have re installed the app, checked for firmware updates and even reset TV but the error keeps on appearing. 
      Any suggestions on how to fix this? Is it a tv issue or is it the app which is faulty?
