@Murray Ronald Are you talking about "CC" (Close Caption) options here? If you press select while watching a Live TV program, you should see a CC option that you can toggle on or off.

Have a look at the Accessibilty options, there may be an advanced setting for those if you need more control.

If something else (i.e.  from a NetFlix or other premium APP program/video title), can you please explain or show a screen shot?

Also from an LG site (may be your issue):

"It’s a common complaint among LG TV owners. You’ve turned off the closed captions just as we’ve mentioned yet the subtitles remain. This happens most often when this happens the captions are turned on somewhere other than your TV.

Closed captions are available on a variety of devices that you use with your LG TV. From your cable box to a Roku or Firestick device, the captions could be appearing because they’re set up on another device. After you’ve verified that the captions are off on the LG TV using the methods above, check your connected devices to ensure the captions are off there as well."

Hi, thanks for your reply. This happens using either live (digital) TV via the antenna or the satellite via the dish, no set top box in use, only the TV.

Yes when I hit select there are toggle type choices for language choice and subtitles (i.e. closed captions I presume) etc.  I can toggle them between available langages or Off. This works fine.

BUT I have to do this EVERY time I change channels.  Yikes!  And also when I turn on the TV - the captions appear to be always ON by default. 

I think I have been over all the options since this TV arrived for Christmas, but I'm still hoping there may be a solution. I also did a reset/initialise to the whole setup and this led me to realise it was just changing the language (sound) that automtically turns on captions.  Which is crazy in my opinion 😉

@Murray Ronald Thanks for the feedback. Are you saying that a factory reset has fixed you issue, or you have turned OFF the CC permanently using the Accessibility setting options?

No the factory reset did not correct the problem.

After the reset I did the setup for France and the antenna tuning. Then I checked the TV worked ok. It works fine with no Captions-Subtitles.

I then changed the Primary Language to English (see photo), and immediately Captions are switched on every time I change a channel. You can see them showing in the photo.

If I go into the Parameters, Accessibilty, Subtitles and turn them Off then it is still NOT permenant. They do turn off for the channel being watched but they come back every time I change channels. There is no general option I can see to choose no language to turn OFF captions.

Just the fact of changing the Primary audio Language from French to English appears to activate some internal auto-caption on every time you change a channel.

@Murray Ronald Thanks for the feedback. That definitely sounds like a WebOS bug.

It would be best to report it directly to your LG country support.

Negative response from French LG support. They consider it "normal" to have to manually control captions that become active every time you change channels.  No indication and no suggestion of improving WebOs with the general overriding toggle for captions.  For this and other questions I am increasingly disappointed with French LG support.

I have another similar question open with LG support about Favorites.  The set does not save your Favorite choice (1 to 8 etc)  and you must choose it again every time you switch on.  In addition, the whole management of Favorites is pretty cumbersome. I am beginning to regret my 10 year old Samsung which was/is miles ahead on these points.  The Samsung got moved out to another room, but it may move back to the primary position soon !

Thanks for your previous help.

      Just purchased this and the set up is driving me nuts. I have a Sony reciever that I use for my audio out as well as HDMI device switching. The output of the reciever is going to HDMI 1. The TV audio out is set to HDMI (ARC) device.  When watching devices directly connected to the reciever (cable box, roku, DVD, Tivo), audio out is fine. If I try switching to the smart menu or the antenna, there is no audio going from the TV back to the reciever. I also have a Roku I can use for streaming, but not for OTA.  Should I just route everything directly into the TV, and use the optical out to get sound to the reciever? Also since setting up the TV and remote there is strange interaction btween the TV and the reciever. I noticed that my cable box, dvd, and roku all show up devices attached to HDMI 1, and clicking on that device will change the input on the reciever, but I have no control over the reciever from the LG remote, volume and muting buttons have no effect. Also there soesn't seem to be anyway to control my Fios cable box, a Motorola HD QIp 7100-1. I have the IR blaster sitting right next to it

      Hi.
      What can I do to get my TV to use the full broadband speed that I've got available.  My tv is a 55EC930V and is using a wired connection to my router.
      My broadband is currently running at 125Mbps.  When I use any other devices such as a laptop, mobile phone, etc the speed using fast.com returns anything between 120 to 130 MBps.
      But, when I use the web browser on the TV, it always maxes out at 33Mbps.  This value is reported by fast.com.
      If I use the speed test in the Netflix app, this returns approx 29Mbps.  I never get anything higher, so what's limiting it?  The same problem occurs for YouTube and that's the only other App that I've got installed.
      If the network board in the TV is supposed to be 10-100Mbps, why don't I get 100 Mbps?  I know I won't get 125Mbps because LG never puts 1Gbps in any of it's TVs.

      A major part of any film project is the reviewing, editing and manipulating of video and sound – tasks that require high-quality displays that can run multiple applications and data streams and provide the most accurate image reproduction. LG has applied its self-lit display technology to create the LG UltraFine OLED Pro series, a lineup of professional-grade monitors offering various features and capabilities needed for media and film production.

      To promote its first-class displays and show its support for the cinematic arts, LG is actively seeking opportunities to sponsor professional societies and innovative educational institutions dedicated to advancing the medium of film. Recently, the company established a partnership program with Griffith Film School, a well-known Australian institution that continues to supply the entertainment industry with talented and capable people. Through the new program, LG will furnish Griffith’s Brisbane campus with a number of LG UltraFine OLED Pro monitors to support students as they learn their craft.

      Designed with film and media professionals in mind, LG UltraFine OLED Pro monitors (models 32BP95E, 27BP95E, 32EP950 and 27EP950) boast premium 4K OLED displays that deliver natural, accurate colors with 99 percent (typical) coverage of both the DCI-P3 and Adobe RGB color space. This wide range of color gamut enables the monitor to sufficiently reproduce color areas of multiple standards and represent accurately the exact computed color values that film directors’ use. With 1,000,000:1 high contrast ratio, almost all colors and visuals that creators or editors intended can be presented precisely. Bringing the advantages of OLED’s self-lit pixels to the desktop, the monitors also provide superb HDR and SDR performance.

      Founded in 2004, Griffith Film School is one of the largest learning institutes of its kind in Australia. Notable Griffith alumni include Matthew Hanger, a multi-award-winning visual effects artist, and Peter Spierig, an award-winning feature film director. The school offers an array of specialized programs, including cinematography, post-production, visual effects, screen music, production design, documentary-making, computer animation and game design – creative endeavors that are perfectly matched to LG UltraFine OLED Pro monitors.

      “Working with LG really makes sense for us as they understand the unique needs we have as filmmakers – and that’s something you can clearly see in the capabilities and feature sets of their monitors,” said Herman Van Eyken, head professor at Griffith Film School. “LG UltraFine OLED Pro monitors are state-of-the-art monitors that provide the faithful image reproduction that our students need to realize their artistic vision.”
      As a result of the partnership, both students and faculty members at Griffith Film School will get to explore everything that LG UltraFine OLED Pro monitors have to offer. LG UltraFine OLED Pro monitors are available to use in the school’s Grading Suite while several units of the equally impressive LG UltraWide monitor (model 40WP95C) are installed in the Editing Suite.
