screensaver activating while watching some freeview channels on B8 oled

Question

I have an issue with my otherwise great oled.

if i watch certain freeview channels - such as now 90s, essentially any of the freeview channels which are delivered as streaming rather than over the air, the screensaver activates after a few minutes even though i am seeing a moving image and hearing sound. seems the tv thinks it's showing a static image rather than an internet delivered tv channel. does this happen with all lg oled televisions? - anyone care to turn on a channel such as now 90s to confirm:? - during the portion of the day when the channel is broadcasting over the air all is fine.

thanks in advance.

Hi, I'm also in the UK and experience the exact same issue with my E8. I've tried resetting the TV (unplugging it whilst holding the power button for 15 seconds) but it has no effect. I suspect this is a general issue across all LG TVs, at least up to the 2018 models.  I've tested for the issue on all the Freeview IPTV streaming channels and it always occurs.

I've posted about it on the UK AVForums site and also on the American AVS forum but got no response. Either it's a very rare bug or nobody's interested in IPTV streaming. I could contact LG about it but I can't stand tech support call centres as they're all so clueless.

It's odd because when a streaming app such as iPlayer is used there's no such issue, so it's definitely related to how Freeview is deployed on the LG platform. I had a Samsung before this and there was no issue. 

Every time there's a firmware update I hope it includes a fix for this, but it never does. I'm not sure where we go from here. It's certainly put me off LG in the future because Freeview IPTV streaming has some good channels and we can't watch them. Please can anyone with a 2019 LG OLED test for the issue?

Edit: if you look at my profile you'll see that I've already posted about the issue in another thread on this forum, which I totally forgot about! Quite a few others have experienced the issue. Here's a link to the thread:

      My android phone screen is casting otherwise ok in my LG WebOS smart TV but the content apps(Zee5, VODAFONEplay, Sonyliv, Flipkart video) are not casting. Whenever I open the app and try to play a video screen casted on TV, the TV screen is only showing the phone notification bar and rest is blank. Only youtube is casting full screen as it has built in screen cast icon on the app screen itself.
        Anyone knowing what to do may please help. Pairing is OK from TV to phone.   -Surojit

      TV was installed yesterday. The screensaver turns the TV into framed art, which is pretty cool. But it's ruined by a floating warning: No Signal (blah, blah). Any way to eliminate this warning during the screensaver mode?

      Hi,  I have a 55 C9- on the 4.80.03 firmware- I love it but one aspect is driving me crazy- the Programme Manager- Edit Favourites with the UK's Freeview via antenna and Freesat. I like to arrange my channels in a certain order as favourites both on my TVs and my hacked Windows MCE. BUT after I have done this, about 6-12 channels have jumped out of order by the next morning. Also, when I then try to move a channel favourite, some of them are very stubborn and won't move- keeping their original position- forcing me to clear the favourites and start again. Not sharing a favourites name seems to have helped with the Freesat favourites not jumping around. But even switching off Programme List Update has not done any good with Freeview which has still changed. In fact having Programme List Update switched on caused a pop up- asking me about auto tuning new channels- even though I had the Smart Retuning option turned on, when I went to my saved Freesat favourite list it had been wiped clean. As I say- frustrating! I don't want to reorder channels- and Freesat won't let you anyway- I just want to be able to reorder favourites- and for them to not move! Thanks in advance

      Hello guys and gals,
      I am not sure if this question is for here, but i tried reading some posts on the internet and could not find a reasonable explanation or solution to my problem, so here it is.
       
      I bought my TV (official model i think is OLED55CX3LA) about 2 weeks ago along with LG Soundbar SN4, connected via optical cabel.
      In few words, the setup is as follows:
      - Picture mode - Expert (Dark Room) with Gamma set to 2.2 and TruMotion to Natural
      - Sound is set to Cinema mode and Optical+Internal TV Speaker
      No AI features are turned on and TV is connected to internet via ethernet cable. I have set-up box connected to the TV, a laptop, both with HDMI, and streaming with Serviio over dlna.
      Now the issue. On 3rd-4th day the TV started crashing only while watching from the set-up box. The picture will freeze, some times a high pitch noise appears, the TV is unresponsive. This goes on for 10-20 seconds, the TV turns off by itself and after 5 seconds it is turned on. Sometimes it does it once and not again, sometimes there is a day without doing it, sometimes does it constantly one after another unless i change the channel, or change from set-up box to DLNA for example.
      I changed HDMI ports, i changed HDMI cables - no effect. I thought it is something in the signal from the set-up box (sometimes it is very low quality, or whatever else), but yesterday same thing happened while watching 2160p movie from DLNA.
      You can see what happens here:

      link hidden, please login to view The video on my cloud is only 2 minutes, but in reality this went on for about 7-8 minutes until i changed from set-up box to DLNA. Just the video was too big and had to cut it.
       
      Thank you!
