Default Startup

Question

Can someone help.. I just purchased a 55" LG tv and its so frustrating.  55UM69 model.  I have no set top box... I do streaming with YoutubeTV. I have the app installed but when the TV starts it will NOT restart using the last mode I used nor can I access the my app from the input buttons....  Every time I start my TV I get a poltergeist/all hash screen..  How on earth can I make this TV stop going to an input I dont have and/or automatically load up my YouTubeTV app uponn tv start.   With all the cord cutters why would they overlook this problem. Why can't I set the default startup mode or app??   Please help before I return this TV as I can't be dealing with this every day.

You cant. It defaults to a TV broadcast input EVERY TIME. I too do not have cable, dish or aerial input and only have internet input. Hate this TV that I wasted my money on. It is so frustrating and WebOS  does not work intuitively. Its not Android or iOS so limited on apps.  I cant use a private network as it will not take my manual settings. Would love to sell it and buy another make but will lose too much money that I cant afford. Even the HDMI takes over my HiFi control so disconnected it So many irritations that I just use it for Youtube  like I do on a PC.  Sorry, I too am fed up with LG.

One way to mitigate this is to go to setup/channels/channel tuning/manual

and add one digital channel (channel 2 ).

Then the TV will startup there, to a quiet black screen/ in built JPG's

      I installed a few apps trying to get Casting to work that didn't work properly and I can't find anyway to uninstall them. My TV doesn't seem to have edit mode perhaps because I have had it a few years (pre-2018 some when- possibly its 10 years old or more as I can't remember when I got it). Anyone know how I can uninstall them?

      Just bought an LGLED-65UJ630 65INCH TV. Right away I started to get the message "This app will now restart to free up more memory". After searching the internet and forums, I now understand that this problem is huge, it has been going on for years now and it is right across many models of LG TV's.
      I have tried everything to fix this problem. It has the latest firmware. I did the factory reset and that lasted 4 hours before I got the message back. I turn off the TV and leave it for 10 minutes, maybe one hour later I get the message. I delete browsing history, maybe 10 minutes and I get the message..... you get the message.
      As I understand it, the problem is that LG TV's don't have enough internal memory, but they have shipped a ton of their "smart" TV's with this problem.
      My question is, has anybody heard anything from anybody, anywhere about a solution to this problem. I really want to keep this TV, but it is not fit for purpose in this state.

      My TV was bought in 2014 55UB850T-TA with WebOS TV version 1.4.0-2337 (afro-ashley). 
      I recently purchased the Disney hotstar subscription. But in the above version the LG content store does not show the Hotstar
      As per the news in this link we are eligible to upgrade to WebOS 2.0. But the automatic updates does not say it as WebOS 2.0 but still WebOS 1.4

      link hidden, please login to view Why this discrimination for old users of LG TV? How will I install new apps in this TV?
      Please help.

      Please add the ability to have eye comfort mode turn off / on at set times. (Similar to night shift on iPhone)
      Or at least move the setting to an easier location to avoid digging through settings menus.
      I turn it on every evening to stop the light effecting my circadian rhythm, then off when watching TV during the day and this would be very convenient.
