Switch from aerial to Satellite

Question

I have a brand new LG OLEDC8PLA model and have both an input for my aerial and for my Satellite however i cannot seem to find anyway to switch from watching via my aerial, which is Spanish DTV and then switching to my Satellite to watch UK TV 

I live in Spain hence the two systems.  When I press the home button on the remote the list is at the bottom  and displayed are LG Content Store HDMI3, LiveTV Freesat etc but no button with the aerial option, so the only way I can switch is to go into the main settings menu select Programme Tuning and switch the programme mode from Satellite to Antenna.

This does not seem a very smart way to be able to switch

Does anybody know if you can switch easily?

You have to switch via the tuning page - sat or antenna - the selected option becomes your TV input

 

if watching one cahannel after switching, then the back button does take you to the previous one even if on different input,   so can switch easily backwards and forwards between current and last and back again

I have the same problem, the easier way is to Open the channels list using List button, then on the top right there is a filter button, there you can switch between Antenna and sattelite.

I like to recommend to LG add this feature to merge channels list or doing similiar things, for example I have added my favorite antenna channels to Favorites 1 also added my favorite sattelite channels to Favorites 1, so when I press Favorites 1 I assume list both types.

Anyone knows if this feature is going to be implemented in a software update? Surely it's not that difficult if even cheap combo boxes have it.

When watching a programme via aerial long press 1. Set the channel to quick access 1. Next switch to a satellite channel and long press 2 and save it to quick access 2. 

Now if you long press 1 you are in aerial mode and long press 2 satellite mode.

      Have connected my satellite dish to the satellite in socket and have done a retune on the LG LM6300PLA Smart TV and the system has downloaded the Astra satellite signals for tv & radio, but I can't view anything other than the Freeview from my aerial antenna, or the Sky from the HDMI. There doesn't appear to be a way to select the Freesat signal from the satellite dish. Any suggestions/help would be appreciated.
