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).

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

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?
