Asking this hear, since I could not seem to find a better place... Wake on LAN only works for a few minutes after TV is turned off? If I turn of LG TV (WebOS 8.x) and then send a Wake on LAN (WoL) packet, it works. If turn off the LG TV, then I wait about 15 minutes or so, then send the same WoL sequence, using the same code, script, etc., it fails, the LG TV never turns on. THe LG TV is configured both for wired ethernet (preferred) and WiFi. Any idea why this behavior? It almost seems like the LG TV goes into standby, via phone app, remote, even CEC, etc., then drops from the network? Mobile is enabled on the TV, hence the phone app works. Why would the LG TV stop responding to WoL packets?

Brand new LG TV (WebOS 8x) WILL NOT stay off when turned off with the remote? Out of the box, connected to internet, seems to have been updated, and working fine. But when I hit the power off with the remote, the TV reports 'Life is Good' seems to turn off, i.e. go into standby, and then a few seconds later, turns back on. If the device connected to the TV on the last active HDMI port is OFF, I get the No Signal warning. So I know the active HDMI input is not generating any signal. I want to believe that any other device on any other HDMI port might be an issue? But then the TV would switch to that HDMI port, no? This is really an issue! If I use the phone app I can turn off the TV and it seems to stay off, at least does not come back on in a few seconds like the remote? If I send 'standby' via HDMI-CEC, that seems to work as well, the TV seems to stay in standby mode. This a bug?
So LG has put webOS on TVs, projectors, and now cars with webos auto. Does anyone thing LG will ever produce a webos powered smartphone or tablet? I know samsung has tried with tizen and it was only with the palm pre 2 and touchpad from HP that we saw webos on these types of devices. Just curious on what everyone thingks. Here's what webos used to look like..
New user on here.
I bought this new TV last week and it is honestly driving me bananas.
When I click "Home" after using an App, etc, it brings me to the WebOS interface but then automatically selects the last used device (e.g. Fire stick, LG Channels, etc) despite me not wanting it to.
Is it possible to disable this, i.e. "Home" brings me to WebOS and stays there? I'm sure its a setting etc which I'm missing.
Device is LG UQ91 43 inch 4K Smart UHD TV, pretty sure its all up to date.
Thanks in advance.

Hi - I have a strange issue where I choose my computer connected via HDMI to my LG C7 TV - the screen has an orange color.
This has only been happening recently and no other channel is affected. TV/Netflix etc channels all totally fine.
Any ideas how to fix this?
