Show Youtube app when power on

Huy Hoang


How can I set Youtube (or a particular app) to be turned on by default upon power on?

Right now it's always showing regular tv at power on and since I don't sign up for cable, it's just the blank screen with noise which is super loud and annoying.

I also was wondering how to do this as I don't use any "regular" TV at all (I'm getting TV thru an app). Unfortunately I can't find George's link....!??!? 

That will be as I forgot to paste it...

Hi George, thanks for posting this link. I just bought a 2018 LG OLED55C8LLA but the WebOS version in my country (Germany) doesn't offer the same menu as seen on this video.

As Huy mentioned I wish there was some way to set preferences for my startup screen but I guess I'll have to deal with it because the TV itself is magnificent. I've been considering buying "regular TV" but I don't really like German TV so I'm loathe to pay extra for it.

I couldn't find a way to set Youtube as the default app on startups (And I don't think there's an option to do so), so I ended up just try tuning the live TV and because there is no cable available, now it shows a black screen with "No signal" text on it. This solved my problem, so I don't see the need to set Youtube as the default app. If I "cast" videos from the Youtube app on my phone, the TV will automatically switch to the Youtube app. 

WebOS is just a useless pos that shouldn't have been made default to a premium product like this. (The C9) .

Many people use either apple TV or G-cast or Amazon sticks as default input on startup. These are far more superior than webOS.

      On LG OLEDs. You go on and disable SIMPLINK. Fine. But everytime you turn on your HDMI device it enables itself back again. This happens because they have disables two key features that were present in previous OSs, as you can see clearly here
      link hidden, please login to view (they even put screencaps of the menus where you see the missing options in the 23) These functions are Auto Power Sync and Auto Device Detection.
      Man updates are supposed to add functionalities not the other way around. It's very annoying to turn on your TV and have your AVR turn on without you wanting to.

      Anyone found a solution for this problem?

      Hello there,
      Is it possible to turn off search on the home screen, or filter results to show only apps? Ideally, I'd like to limit content to be appropriate for kids.

      Has anyone else had the same problem as me regarding the 'like' button on the YouTube app on my Oled77g7v? There is a thumbs up button and a thumbs down button for each video. These icons are supposed to be just an outline unless you click on them and then they fill in to show you have selected them. However, this no longer works on my TV. It is as if you never clicked. In fact, the 'like' icon is always pre_filled, no matter what I do. This used to work properly and it still works correctly on a Sony TV I have. Any ideas would be very welcome!

      Hello all, quick question, 
      I have an LG Smart TV, with the latest firmware ( 04.50.56), that is connected to a PVR ( Cisco).  That PVR, via a cable company called Videotron,  has about 50 of exercise videos of 20 minutes recorded over that past years.  I wish to move away from my existing TV provider, but before doing so, I'm trying to figure out how to export the videos into an external drive ( USB, cloud) , so that I can re-use them. Some people have suggested to remove the hard drive from the PVR and export to a USB, but those files are encrypted.  So outside of using my Iphone and actually record the shows, is there a better quality way of doiing it?  I'm thinking some sort of app, that the TV can download, and then record to a USB drive for example.  Thanks for sharing any positive outcome.
