Remove or not start with LiveTV

Question

We recently got a new LG 43" TV for our bedroom (43UN7300AUD). There are no inputs for this TV as we only want to use it for streaming services (Netflix and Amazon). There is no Antenna hooked up to the TV either since we don't want to watch LiveTV on it (the only Antenna we have is hooked up in our family room to a FireTV Recast, not to a smartTV). 

When we turn on the TV it auto-tunes to channel 2-0. Since there is no antenna, this is just loud snow. Even when we go to the dashboard, it defaults to showing liveTV and hence more snow & noise. Even though the LG TV stations are enabled and working it will always tune to 2-0 when I turn the TV on. I've tried going through the menu and cannot find any setting to change this. I'd be happy removing or disabling "LiveTV" as an option and would love it to start with the dashboard with LiveTV not expanded/active. Even clicking on the amazon prime button takes time and we get several seconds of the snow before the smart features startup.

With more and more people only using streaming services, I have to believe the TV supports our use case and should not try to ever use liveTV. 

Is there a setting I missed in the menu to stop it from always trying to go to liveTV when I turn the TV on? Or at the very least make it tune to an LG channel on start to avoid the snow?

Update: of course, right after posting thisI did find that you can use the amazon prime button on the remote to turn the TV on. I still would like to fix the dashboard playing snow and would prefer to have the TV not try to use liveTV if I use the power button to turn the TV on.

Thank you

I don't think that our wish (yours and mine) is as realistic as we think. A television or a monitor is set to one input. Once, you had these "radio buttons" that live on in computer speak: always exactly one button down. If there is no signal on that input, then there is whatever noise.

      I’m using multiple Sonos speakers in my home WiFi and each speaker will show up in the inputs list in home dashboard as a individual media server. I did some research and it is because Sonos streams musics on UPnP protocol and there is no way to turn it off. I just hoping to get a ‘hiding inputs’ feature in the home dashboard.

      Hi,
      I have my LG 4K Smart TV -Model : 43UJ632T.
      I could not able to use the Wireless Keyboard ( Logitech K230) with Builtin Apps like Youtube, Amazon Prime or in Netflix to search. I could able to use only thru Magic Remote. 
      But the same Keyboard is working fine in Google Movies & SunNXT apps.
      Could you please help me in fixing the same.
      Thanks,
      Sriram.

      New to LG WebOS. Cannot sign into my Amazon.com account. Keep getting password error even though I am 100% sure I entered the correct user id and password. Is this a know issue, or some settings I need to change on my TV?

      Hi everyone.
      I would like to know if it's possible that my webos tv may start an app when I turn On the tv. Currently it looks like it will auto-start on the last selected input. Is this possible? Planned? Is there a workaround? Really would like to have this feature.
      Thanks

      Hi LG, your Web OS is really well built, but there are a few essential features lacking.
      Such as:
       
      - Folder filtering in the SmartShare App (We all need this ASAP, the navigation is a nightmare!).
      - Audio stream selection within video files in the SmartShare App.
      - A PLEX App the collaborates nicely with the PLEX Client.
       
      - Faster start up times. From when you power on the TV to being able to quickly access the home menu and change the Volume, channel, etc.
        If you have to just offer an option to put the TV into a low power state/sleep (for as long as the user wishes) so you can resume quick menu navigation almost straight away.
        (and unlike Sony don't make it so after a few hours of the TV being asleep it fully powers down. (THIS IS NOT USEFULL, and is the reason I took my Sony TV back to JB HI-FI
        And bought yours).
        You could call this feature "PowerAct", or "instant on" it would make 'Life Good' and easier
       
      - Auto backlight brightness? I have the Australian LB 6500 and I can't seem to find a Auto-Backlight/dimming feature anywhere, and seeing as I use it in my room, when the lights are off 
        I want it to dim so I don't go blind. I don't know if you've implemented a Ambient light sensor or not, but for $1,800 I would think you should have.
       
      - If you would Like anymore Feedback/Suggestions, Feature requests or ideas from me then just PM me or write on this thread
       
      Thank you LG, and thank you for being one of the very few 'Innovative' companies around today.
