Switch from aerial to Satellite


Tony Levy

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.

Exactly, I really don't know why LG hasn't made the menu this way, it's so necessary and obvious. Actually I regret that I didn't buy a Samsung TV instead, because its menu is more user-friendly and easy to use. I've bought this TV for my mom and she hasn't been able to change between "Antenna" and "Satellite'' even once, because it's too complicated for her.

      Hi,
      I have just upgraded from an LG 06LF6300 TV to an LG OLED65C1PTB. On my old TV I could pause live TV for up to 90 minutes and replay at a later stage. 
      Can anyone advise if this feature is available on the LG OLED65C1PTB.
      Thanks 
      Sam

      When I try to go to a TV programme via the remote control voice option, the TV tries to look up the channel on the app I'm on, instead of going straight to the TV channel on the antenna. This used to work without any problems up until a couple of days ago. Any help appreciated.

      We just purchased a new LG WebOS TV OLED 65" and running the setup through the app or the TV remote says it can't load the user agreement. This is blocking us from getting to streaming apps like Nexflix or any smart functions like Voice assistant.
      TV worked fine for a few days but voice assistant stopped working and after much effort LG tech said to  Reset to Initial Settings. Now we have mentioned no smart functions. TV is on ethernet and its browser functions on web fine. Tried running off neighbor's wifi with same results.
      Tried switching to different country, unplugging/hold power button for 20 seconds/wait one minute,  resetting TV multiple times, setting up remote again, ...
      Error message: Unable to Load User Agreements  A server error has occurred while downloading  the User Agreements. You must download and agree to the terms of the User Agreements to use this feature or application. Do you want to try to download them again… Unable to Load User Agreements  Sorry, but the User Agreements  can't be downloaded at this time…Please check your internet connection and try again later.    No change when trying over five days.
      Now there is no local company available to service TV. Maybe it's time to send it back and give LG TV a one star rating. I am willing to change motherboards but doubt if LG would go along with that.
      Anyone have any ideas.

      Why does LG sell televisions without live access to the channels? I don't want to watch catchup TV I want to watch live TV, but LG seem to have decided that I can buy their system, but they will not provide me with a full set of apps that allow me to watch live television. This will be the last LG product I will ever purchase as they don't appear to care about their customers once they have sold them a television that does not function the way it should.

      Hi all
       is there a way to view content from my own channel in Youtube? Much of my own content has the ‘unlisted’ or ‘private’ attribute and will not appear in search results, so I need to be able to go to my own channel and sekect the video from there, but that seems not to be possible. Or is it?
