LG 43UN70 HDMI Input Names Reset


PureChaosX

Question

As the title sort of says, whenever I rename the HDMI inputs on my new TV, they seem to reset at random. Sometime's they've reset when the TV is put on standby mode for several hours. Other times, I've noticed they've reset while the TV is still being used. I always end up renaming them in the morning, and eventually, they've reset themselves back to HDMI 1 (Xbox One X) and HDMI 2 (Elgato Capture). 

Sometimes, only 1 of the names reset. Other times, they both reset.

Does anyone have any ideas as to why the names keep resetting? TV off or on, it doesn't seem to matter. Any help would be great!

Please and thank you!

@PureChaosX Just wondering if there is a "save settings" option in the User Interface for that, so they have "staying power" between standby/off/on states? Scroll down to check.

If  the above is not relevant to your model User Settings interface, see if there is a firmware update  available. I cannot find our exact model LG 43UN70 so please check it is correctly posted. If it is at the latest, report your issue to your local country LG support.

The only button to press is "Save" ...it then says settings have been saved, then I exit the Home Dashboard. As far as I can tell, that's all I need to do. This morning, HDMI 1 stayed as Xbox One X, but HDMI 2 had reset itself.

The exact model number 43UN70006LA, purchased from Currys in the UK

As for firmware, I updated the firmware pretty much as soon as I set the TV up.

@PureChaosX What is the Elgato capture device? How old is it, and can it be firmware updated.? If possible, turn off the HDMI-CEC for this device.

If that does not work, and the device is connected via an HDMI cable (rather than a direct plug-in device), ensure that it is a good spec cable, at least 1.4a, preferably 2.0  plus, especially if plugged into an eARC socket.  If not that, try another (spare) socket for that device, to see if any different. If no joy, then place a support call with your local LG country support.

Same issue on my LG OLED55C9PLA (2019) model. It saves the names, but after sometime it will reset back to the default HDMI1, HMDI2, etc. Update to the latest WebOS version for my model, but it keeps happening. I’m using HDMI1 and 3 for my consoles... maybe I should switch to 1 and 2, to see if that changes the behaviour of losing my custom names for my HDMI inputs.

I see it’s not just me that’s having this annoying problem - I name the input (HDMI2 in my case) ‘Sky Q’,  the satellite dish icon shows and saves but the text randomly renames itself ‘DVD Player’ or occasionally ‘blueray’.  It’s really annoying on what is otherwise an excellent TV.

Just wanted to mention I’m glad I found this post as my TV has been flawless for about two years now it’s a C9 but for some reason this thing has just started resetting the inputs in the last couple of weeks don’t think it’s anything silly like which HDMI ports I’m using as it’s been for this previously and it’s just started to be an issue hopefully LG issues are fixed but I’m hardly changing TVs because of the labels. Poor experience though.

So this is nearly a year old! Anyway, not sure if this will help anyone, but the HDMI names resetting only occurs when you unplug the HDMI cable from the TV or the device, then plug it back in.

For some reason, LG failed to incorporate any kind of proper SAVE function to the HDMI settings, resulting in everything being reset when a device is unplugged and plugged back it. I disabled the Auto Device Detect option, or whatever it was called, to see if that helped, but it didn't. The only thing it DID so was prevent the Picture Setting from resetting.

This is a major annoyance, as for some reason, this TV has excessive input lag when playing Forza Horizon 5 on an Xbox One X  (and a Series X according to others) and this lag can only be removed by changing the Picture Setting to GAME or by changing the HDMI input icon to PC. Once you do either one of those, the lag is gone. And this only affects FH5, no other Xbox One game has this issue.

Apparently, you can prevent the HDMI name rest by having the TV in standby BEFORE you unplug anything, but I have yet to test this theory. Kind of pointless for LG to put a SAVE button there, when technically, it does anything BUT save.

This is the only stupid thing about this TV, which is otherwise the best TV I've owned. What a stupid problem. How do we tell LG??

      I have a NANO91ANA LG TV connected via HDMI to a Yamaha RX-V677 Receiver. Normally when I turn the TV on it also turns the receiver on and I can control volume via the LG remote, whether it is an app on the TV or from another device connected to my receiver (Apple TV or cable box). Now the receiver is not turning on and ARC audio is not working. I think there may have been a software update the other day, but I'm not sure. However, everything was working properly until last night. The last time this happened it seemed to correct itself (it seems to be kind of sporadic), but this time it did not. I do not know what to do to correct this, but it is a major pain as I'm now having to deal with 4 remotes, plus I can't get sound out of my surround speakers when using an app on the TV.  Any suggestions would be appreciated.

      hi guys, I have an LG CX65 bought a month ago. it's already happened two times that while I was watching a normal TV channel the fireworks screensaver kicked in. After the first time I did a reset of the TV, but it happened again today. Someone has experienced this issue? If could be useful to know, I have an Xbox series x, a ps5 and a soundbar connected respectively to HDMI port 1, 2 and 3 and the consoles always stays in sleep mode. they works great, no problem at all, and the hdmi cables are brand new.
      the first time the fireworks kicked in while a was watching a news Channel i has only the soundbar and PS4 connected tho.
      I hope you can help me out
