After updating my TV (OLED65GXPUA) on August 31, 2020 the HDMI-ARC volume support changed: pressing the volume up/down button once on the magic remote will continuously apply volume changes until the volume has reached the maximum or minimum value. Prior to this update volume changes over the HDMI-ARC interface behaved as expected: one press of the remote button would apply one increment or decrement to the volume. A Klipsch Bar 48 is attached to the TV over the HDMI-ARC interface.
After the update the TV is running: webOS TV version 5.1.1-3701, Software version 03.10.41. I do not have the version information prior to the update.
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).

Hey there, I have had a OLED55B6P for ten months and I love it but
I have a problem all a sudden, just today it starts to show a black screen with fire works every minutes if I don't press a button on the remote.
I have no eco mode on, no power save modes on, TV firmwire is up to date, and tried turning off on and on the tv.
anyone know how to fix?

I don’t use screen share. Suddenly SCREEN SHARE is showing up highlighted when I am trying to select the HDMI that I need to be using. However, since SCREEN SHARE is already highlighted and will not go away, it keeps everything else with exception from antenna tv from working. I have gone into the SCREEN SHARE APP and was able to deactivate the sound. Could not figure out away to cancel completely. Please help!

I use Enigma2 for watching TV, recording etc.
Is WebOS an alternative?
Unlimited number of simultaneous recordings.
Streaming (Intranet and Internet)
Softcam (for pay-TV card) <= Alternative: support for "Unicam" etc.
NAS instead of USB HDD.
Make 2017 TV sets that have latest USB ports, at least 3.0 so it is possible to find a compatible USB HDD WebOS will work properly with.
Install sufficient memory to run WebOS Apps without constant restarts or inform customers apps may not work properly.
Put a clearly accessible filer by Genre choice from the main program guide (something Toshiba TV and others have had for many years on their EPG's). Going out of the main EPG into the limited snapshot guide then finding the sort by Genre option is clunky. A zoom function on the main EPG to show more than just a couple of hours ahead would be ideal as well. Even my £70 supermarket own brand TV can manage these simple functions so come on LG match up.

I am trying to record terrestrial digital programs from my 2016 LG webosTV to a USB stick- if I set up a few programs to record, a few work, but after a day or two it will fail. and from that point all will fail.
The TV does still try to record, as I can see it pop up a notification if I am watching, but nothing is recorded. (No error message is shown then.)
If I look at the "scheduled recordings" page, it shows an error, and "Unable to load" for the start and end time of the failed show.
If I go to "recording history" for that show, I see a message saying "incomplete, Cable/broadcast service changed programming" but that can't be the case for so many different shows,
There is plenty of space on the USB stick.
I have tried LG support, but they can't tell me what the message means, and suggest returning the TV for repair.
As a side note: I don't usually watch terrestrial TV through the television- we still use Sky (which is why I want to get this working!) I only say that in case it was a reason that show schedule information is not being updated.
Any help or suggestions gratefully received.
I have a LG 55UH615T SmartTV.
1. I setup a few scheduled recordings from the digital TV (via Guide),
2. I have connected a USB HDD to the TV and
3. I then set the TV to standby (i.e. I switch off the TV but the power to the TV is still on).
4. Also, I disabled the HDD Eco mode to ensure the HDD don't go to sleep.
However, the TV doesn't record when the TV is on standby mode. Can anybody tell me how I can record when the TV is on standby mode? Can anybody tell me how I can record when the TV is on standby mode?
