Invalid Service - Freeview Planet Knowledge

Question

Noticed after tuning that my LG C9 (2019) gets an "invalid service" on the freeview channel "Planet Knowledge". From reading other threads this seems to be because the TV no longer supports the old format (MHEG or something). What I am wondering though is if I get a set top box (Manhattan T3-R is top of list ATM) whether I will be able to get the missing channels through that?

Hi, according to the notes that accompanied the latest software update the Manhattan T3-R can receive them.  I was looking for a new Freeview box so thanks for mentioning this one as I hadn't heard of it.

v1.24 Software Update

Released 15/11/19

If your T3 is connected to the internet and left in standby, it will update automatically overnight, unless you have disabled automatic updates in the System Settings menu. Please see below for more information about updating, including how to update by USB.

Improved

  • The TV Guide has been optimised for faster navigation and presentation of programme information and icons.
  • Responsiveness of menus with content carousels (e.g. Featured) to very fast key presses
  • Persistent channel lists: After selecting a list in the TV Guide (e.g. Favourites or HD Channels), as long as the channel being viewed is on that list when you re-enter the TV Guide, the list will continue to be selected. Changing to a channel not on the list or pressing Standby will reset the list back to All Channels.
  • When using interactive services that use legacy MHEG-IC technology (e.g. Planet Knowledge, Sports Network, Vision TV, etc) and video is playing back you can now use all Manhattan menus (e.g. TV Guide, Home, etc).
  • Channel change speed when changing between HD channels with the P-UP / P-DOWN buttons.
  • SD video processing for more detailed video.

Hi Tony B

Thanks for answering. I did eventually find that information too, so went ahead and bought one - those channels do indeed work fine. It is pretty good and has some thought put into the features - it's integration with UK catch up is good and I'm impressed it will suggest an alternative HD version if there is one when you record SD content. I'm only a bit disapointed that I can't find a way of setting up the LG magic remote to control it and also that you can't reorganise your favourites so that for example film4+1 appears under film 4 (as you can on the LG internal tuner). But, hey nothing is perfect :). The alternative was the Humax of course, but the reviews suggest that it is not very responsive. Good luck and thanks again for responding.

That's great, and I'm sure this thread will help others. It will be interesting to see when these OTT channels get round to adopting HBB TV so that the problem is resolved.

Regarding the non-use of the magic remote, that's a shame but even with my old Humax Fox T2 I often find I reach for the Humax remote as the functionality with the magic remote on the Humax is very limited.

      LG always makes a big splash at CES, and the first glimpse we've had of the 2019 lineup looks great. From the first 8K OLED TV to hit the market to smarter AI and across-the-board improvements, LG's TVs are looking especially good for 2019.
      LG Jumps to 8K
      The biggest announcement has to be the introduction of the 88-inch Z9 OLED 8K TV, the first OLED to come to market with the higher resolution standard. The sleek TV has an ultra slim design, eye-popping detail and impressive dynamic range. It's also the first 8K TV announced that will offer to perfect black levels and per-pixel lighting that makes OLED such an impressive display technology.

      During our hands on time with the new TV, we were impressed not only with the amazing clarity of the picture, but also the vibrant color and brightness. While LG declined to comment on peak brightness levels, it matched some of the brightest TVs we've seen, without sacrificing any of the detailed shadows or mid-range colors that might wash out on a lesser TV.

      The second is an 8K LCD set to 75-inch LG NanoCell 8K TV (75SM99), which uses LG's optimized LCD displays and NanoCell film filtering for premium TVs. Like the OLED model, it features incredible resolution, but the LCD display offers excellent brightness and color, two areas where LCD generally outperforms OLED.
      With the lack of any 8K content available to Consumers, LG is going to some lengths to ensure that current content looks good on the high-resolution panel. Even on the LG enhances all incoming content by pulling in optimization from deep datasets, offering upscaling and clarity enhancements for any content, from any source.
      Both OLED sets will be coming to market in 2019, likely sometime in June or July. Pricing details have not yet been announced.
      Smart TVs Get Smarter
      The rest of LG's OLED lineup is seeing significant improvements thanks to new Alpha 9 (A9 Gen 2) processing hardware, found in LG's OLED and premium LCD models. The processor handles processing for a cleaner picture, sharper details and a wider look-up table for true-to-life color. Unexpanded video cleanup process removes unwanted artifacts and offers sharper picture from any content source.

      While the TV still primarily relies upon Google Assistant for content search and other capabilities, this does open up all of the functionality Amazon offers their customers, including exclusive skills such as Audible audiobook playback, listening to songs through Amazon music, travel booking through Kayak, and more.
      The smart TV software is also getting updated as LG rolls out webOS 4.5. The on-screen menu is getting an improvement, adding a second contextual row to the app menu that pops up when you select an app. In this second row, you'll see recently watched content, along with movie recommendations and trending content.
      Smart home enthusiasts will be pleased to learn that the new version of webOS also includes a feature called Home Dashboard. This dedicated tool lets you manage all of your connected home devices, from smart doorbells to thermostats, right from the TV.
      OLED and LCD TVs for 2019
      LG's entire lineup is being updated for 2019 with new models coming this spring. Models announced include the premium LG OLED E9, entry level OLED C9, and an updated version of the super thin wallpaper TV the LG Signature W9 OLED. No prices have been announced, but we expect the TVs to begin rolling out this spring.

      (Though not yet announced, LG did tell us that the popular LG OLED B9 will be coming out later in 2019. No additional details were shared.)
      LG's LCD model line, previously known as Super UHD, is now known as NanoCell. The model line features the new webOS 4.5 platform, and many (though not all) models will include the new Alpha A9 Gen 2 processor, with all of its enhancements.
      Pricing details have not yet been announced, but the new models will arrive in stores sometime this spring.

      I  have just bought an LG Smart Tv and have tuned it in via freeview and the guide shows that i have all the channels installed. However I am a Racing tv subscriber and the guide shows channel 261 as installed but when i try to access it I get a message saying 'Invalid Service' with an animation and a blank screen. I had no issues with my previous tv so am a little baffled by the fact that i cant receive racing tv on my brand new LG tv. Is this a compatibility problem or is that i need a flash player installed to stream racing tv. Can someone please offer a reason and a solution for this as it is driving me batty.
