Hi I have an OLED A2 48” 4k, which doesn’t have an aerial but is connected to WiFi. All the streaming services are working fine, but my understanding (From Freeview website) is that the TV guide should be populated with a live Freeview TV schedule that , if you click on a live broadcast, opens it up in the relevant app. E.g. BBC, ITVX, 4 etc.
There are a couple of BBC IP channels showing, which play without opening the apps but nothing else.
I have the Freeview App on my phone which does exactly what I was expecting above.

I have been trying to get my Google Home and Nest Audio Speakers to turn my LG OLED65C24LA TV on and off. I have linked ThinQ to Google Home but it still wouldn't work. So plan B was to get a Chromecast to do this one simple voice activated request....I have no intentions of using Chromecast for anything else!
So this actually does work, however, when asking it to turn the TV on, it defaults to the home page of Chromecast TV, I want it to just open to my normal TV system, which is Sky Q. Ideally, I would like to disconnect the Chromecast and just get Google Home and ThinQ to do this !!
I have checked every setting and trawled the internet for a solution. I've posted on the AV Forum in the UK and the Google Forum and I'm waiting on a call back from LG Support UK.
I expected this to be a VERY simple task !!
Can anyone help with this ?

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.
I output the sound from my LG 75UJ657A to external speakers through a bluetooth connection, but it doesn't automatically connect to the bluetooth device when I turn the TV on. Whenever I cycle the TV off and, then, back on, the TV asks if I want to connect to the bluetooth device, and I have to select "yes" with the remote. My smart phone automatically connects to all the bluetooth devices I've set it up with. When I start my car, my phone connects automatically to the car stereo/phone system, and it does the same with other bluetooth speakers I have. This is what I want my TV to do.
How do I get my LG 75UJ657A to automatically connect to the bluetooth device I've set up with it?
