I have two LG OLEDs. I have given each a name in the WebOS. Occasionally when a TV is powered on, I am first requested to enter the TV name along with the dialog to enter text with the on screen keyboard. I can enter anything and it is accepted and I get past that screen and then normal operation follows. This happens on both TVs albeit only occasionally. It is a real nuisance when this happens and I see no need for this.
Has anyone else experienced this and if so, is there a solution to disable this behavior? Is there some setting that I have missed?

I've just been testing playing 4k UHD Blu-Ray rips from my DLNA server to the DLNA client built into my OLED 55 B6T. The playback keeps stuttering because the bitrate can exceed 100Mbit, and the Ethernet connection on the TV is only 100Mbit. I know the problem isn't with the DLNA server because I can stream the same rips from the server to my PC, which has a gigabit NIC, and get no stuttering.
Do later model LG sets have gigabit connections? I had a look on the LG website, but the specs for the sets just say they have a LAN connection without specifying the speed.

I purchased a LG OLED TV in December 2017. It is great, except for one annoyance. Every 15 minutes, a HDMI2 popup appears in the center of the screen. It disappears after a few seconds. This repeats ad infinitum. My TV connections are very simple. One coax cable input to the Cable Box. HDMI output from the Cable Box to the TV's HDMI1 input. The coax output from the Cable Box is connected to a Magnavox DVR. The DVR is connected to the TV's HDMI2 input . The DVR is "off" when we watch normal TV on the HDMI1. I've searched the internet for a solution, without success. Any ideas?
I'd like a fast accessible shortcut to turn off the screen, eg. when pressing settings, a button on the screen.
Or even better, the possibility to configure the speaker off button on the remote to turn off the screen instead.
It should work independently of the energy saving feature, so that energy saving is not set to off when the screen is turned on again.
The existing procedure to turn off screen is to complex
press settings, press all settings, press energy saving, press off.....
and when the screen is turned on again, the energy saving is set to off, and not to the previous value (eg. auto).
