43UK6750PLD - How can I switch between Antenna and SAT?

Question

I think I am going to return this TV. Not only is it hard to switch between these because they are not separated in the input section. The satellite channels, even the open ones are all locked. I don't get what the deal is with this TV, why is everything so wrong?

@nMaib0 I don't get FREESAT in my country, but I did see some info on another forum:

"TV has Freeview HD it will work on Saorview in ROI [or all the FREEVIEW+ channels that your UK regions can get] , the Freesat tuner will also only pick up the free to air channels that are authorised in your region."

I saw some advice a user had for setting up che very mixed "channels" that can come in from either tuner, maybe in odd orders.

Have a read of this first, to set up "Quick Access", if you have not already:

NOTE: this users input was for an ROI location, NOT UK, so treat this as examples only, and change details to suit your location and channel availability, and your local requirements:

"I set tv up as location Northern Ireland ->
Saorview now became Freeview but channels were not in order however it was easy to rearrange these channels as only a few
The EPG was fine
The FTA satellite channels were now in a decent order ie similar to SKY (bbc at start, gambling etc at the end)
The EPG took longer to load and also needed an extra click or two on the menu to choose the program. 
 As mentioned by David from Richer Sounds the two sets of channels are separate.
Easiest way I could find for the elder person to navigate between one and the other was below
 
If your LG tv is running Webos 3.5 (e.g. a recent model 2017 onwards ) you can set Quick Access favourites onto buttons 1 to 9 on the remote. Set RTE1 [or your main favourite channel] onto button 1 and BBC 1 in button 2 etc. 

Now a long-press on 1 brings you to RTE1 (and the saorview/freeview epg) and a long press on 2 brings you to BBC1 and the Freesat epg. If you have the magic remote with voice command you can also say "change channel to BBC1 " etc and you will switch between epgs. Google "webOS-3-5-quick-access" for instructions"

      Have connected my satellite dish to the satellite in socket and have done a retune on the LG LM6300PLA Smart TV and the system has downloaded the Astra satellite signals for tv & radio, but I can't view anything other than the Freeview from my aerial antenna, or the Sky from the HDMI. There doesn't appear to be a way to select the Freesat signal from the satellite dish. Any suggestions/help would be appreciated.

      I've recently bought a LG OLED C9 PLA TV set, installed the latest version of firmware WebOS 4.71.XX. I like the WebOS interface, but there is one thing I absolutely don't understand and would appreciate to get solved:
      I use the single tuner in both modes, satellite and antenna.
      I'd like to have mixed favorites list from stations received from antenna and satellite and browsing between them without explicitly switching to satellite or antenna mode, thus having WebOS to automatically set satellite or antenna mode depending on the chosen station from the favorites list.
      At the moment this is quite difficult to handle: Open the list from RC, open the filter (yellow button), switch between antenna/satellite -> the list is reset to All, again choose the favorites list of my choice.
      I know it is possible to add mixed tuner mode stations to favorites, but there is always shown the portion matching the currently set tuner mode. This is quite difficult to handle.
      Isn't there another way?
