How to disable LG media server??


Question

I have a win10 HTPC with all my media files on it. It's connected via HDMI to my home theatre amp which is connected to my LG tv via HDMI. If I'm watching a local stored movie or listening to my music collection on my HTPC it plays on the home theatre speakers and the TV just acts as a computer monitor. If I'm watching tv the audio is via the internal speakers or connected sound bar.

 Something has happened and now whenever I try to play music the LG tv automatically overides the amp and plays the music through the tv with its media server. How do I disable this function please?? I don't really want the tv to perform any media serving functions.

Figured out what was wrong just not sure why.

I use MediaMonkey as my music library and player and I found a setting in it that was showing LGwebOS as the player. I've certainly never set that option so not sure if the TV webOS did it or if it was maybe my new (google home) smart device.

      I recently updated the firmware on my  LG43UH610V.  Now I constantly get "Wired Lan cable disconnected" / "Wired network is connected" messages even while watching a video file from my NAS. The TV is connected and using the network while getting these messages. It has always been on a fixed IP address on the LAN.

      Hi guys, I have an older received (Arcam AVR300) that only support optical input, so I was able to add it manually via Connected Devices, and can control the volume and mute, however I can't turn it off quickly (can only do it via the "..." button and selected sound bar and then power). This work, but is it possible to map this to lets say the top box on/off button or even some other button? Maybe even some cable I would but to make this work. The old remove is dead so I need a way out and the receiver is old and I don't want to keep it on always. Thanks

      [Feature-Request] Set power on to last HDMI input

      Not sure if this feature request would be part of LG webOS or would require changes to some lower level control software for my TV.
      But... It seems that every time I switch it on, it seemingly randomly selects a HDMI input, I  mostly use the same HDMI input so I wanted to ask for a feature request in the next software update that makes the TV remember the last selected HDMI input so I don't have to keep manually selecting it.
      In addition, maybe a second option in the TVs settings that can auto select the input based on there being an input signal or not, that might be useful for people that switch devices allot.
      Thanks

      I just bought a lg b7 oled and have a problem. I dont subscribe to cable so I wont ever be using it on this tv. Every time I start the tv it loads the OS and the cable-less static comes on the screen and BLASTS through the speakers. The tiles for netflix, hulu, etc are at the bottom so I choose one of those. How do I stop the tv from defaulting to turning on the "tv" that clearly doesnt exist? Ive tried deleting the tile for live tv, and even moving it to the far right side but still every time I turn n the tv - static with the menu on the bottom.

      Hello,
      there is a problem with the EDID reported by the LG CX, with the current firmware 03.21.18, related to the audio formats exposed in the HDMI EDID info. 
      The TV states support for only 2 channels, then disabling multichannel LPCM via eARC with some eARC connected equipment. 
      LG C9 was affected by the same issue and LG released a firmware update where the number of channels for LPCM reported in the HDMI EDID info was upgraded from 2 to 9.
      Would please LG make a firmare update fixing this for the LG CX too?
      Regards,
      Dani
