screensaver activating while watching some freeview channels on B8 oled


dsbdsb

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:

      Hi, 
       
      My LG Smart WebOS TV recently got a burned image on the screen for 2 hours now. I don't have an option to refresh the pixels on the screen to clear this through options. What options do I have to clear this up?

      Hi All,
       
      i’ve got an OLED 55C1 with webOS 6.0 and a service remote in South America. 
       
      I’ve been able to find working area codes for almost all regions using the service remote based on previous posts and tables. 
       
      Of most use to me were:
      Brazil: 26895 (local DTV transmission settings) /22800 (BR/US DTV transmission settings)
      US: 1843 / 1793 / 22287
      UK/EU/Turkey: 3122
      AU Australia: 767
      JP Japan: 23439
      I’ve also found working codes for China (CN), Taiwan (TW), Hog Kong (HK), Philippines (PH), Australia, NZ & South Asia incl. India (AJ), certain African and Middle Eastern countries (JA or JA ME IL regions: note Israel is not an option even though IL appears in the code) , Canada (CA), Mexico (MX), Panama and Central America (PA), Ecuador (EC), Colombia (CO), Peru (PE), Chile (CL), and Argentina (AR).
      Notably absent were working codes for;
      Israel (IL)
      Korea (KR)
      Russia and CIS countries (RU CIS)
      Eastern Europe (ETC?)
      Does anyone know the working area option service codes for these countries?
      I am mostly interested in working IL and KR codes.
       
      thank you so much!

      My TV has stopped recognising the live TV signal from the aerial since the OS updated recently. The aerial works fine when plugged into other devices but when plugged into the TV it doesn’t recognise the signal for days on end. When this happens, it will no longer allow me to do a signal test via the settings (the option is greyed out). I’m guessing it’s either a) a problem with the input (hardware) or; b) a problem with the OS (software).

      I shifted to India from UAE with my 55SM9000PVA LG TV. Since it is a TV for the middle east, I can not change the region to India. Therefore I can not log in to my LG account and have apps from the LG content store of India. Ok, so I thought I should be able to use my account in UAE and use the apps which I used in UAE. Now these apps say the IP address is not from the region, so can't run those apps. So I am stuck up with an expensive smart TV without smartness. No service center, neither LG India have any answers to it. I hate using set top boxes please help.
