Missing Broadcast Service Provider



First, I have search other forums and documentation.  Haven’t found a solution.

I am not asking about an AT&T TV app.  I know there is not one at this time. I’m talking about the service provider that is specified in webOS.  This is what is used by Lists and Guide to show current broadcast television.   The closest service provider listed is AT&T U-verse, which is not AT&T TV.  Btw AT&T TV Now is also not on the list but also is not AT&T TV either.  Without the correct service provider I get wildly incorrect broadcast information.  Is there a work around or any plans to add AT&T TV to the broadcaster list.  Again, I am not talking about an app.  I am talking about the broadcaster list.

Thank you.

@Absenm I assume you are asking about OTA (Over-the-Air) regular Live TV from your antenna, and NOT a cable TV provision? If so, this will vary from country to country, and then area within that country, for large countries like USA, Australia etc. It would be useful to know what LG model you are asking about, what country and area you are using it in, and if the TV was ever initally used in another area or country, as these are set for the country initially used in, as delivered to the dealer.

No-one other than LG software developers can "see" inside the firmware, to glean the internal infomation about CDN servers used for On Demand stuff, or what "lists" are there for triggers to country codes usage and providers.

If you can give examples of the incorrect Broadcast Providers Information you are seeing, others on here MAY have experience of this, and be able to offer more help.

Otherwise, try raising your concerns with LG directly, in your country, giving them as much detail as possible to work with.

Well, the tv is LG 50UN7300PUF and only in the USA, never used elsewhere.  

AT&T TV is AT&T’s replacement for AT&T U-verse.  It is not over the air.  It is just like cable, but streaming in real time over the internet. It comes with a set top box, or you can use a mobile device,  Real-time like charter, and direct, and dish.  All the channels like A&E and weather channel and TBS and local CBS shown in real-time just like cable.  It’s only been active for a year and a half, but AT&T is pushing all its TV broadcasting services that direction.  AT&T is putting all its TV broadcasting services in the AT&T TV basket.  They are no longer even accepting new subscribers to U-verse and I think also the NOW services.  The EPG providers already have the data for AT&T TV.

So, you are running the AT&T service via an external box, fed via your home internet, then to the TV via an HDMI cable from that box, yes? If that is correct, then what has it got to do with the LG TV or the WebOS?  It does rather sound like you need to reach out to AT&T with the issue.

The LG and WebOS when providing a listing of broadcast service providers does not list AT&T TV as an option.  Samsung smart TVs don’t have a problem recognizing AT&T TV as a service provider.  It think WebOS simply is overlooking a relatively new service. I think AT&T TV is being viewed as an on demand service like HBO Max or Discovery+ Instead of a live Tv service. But I do have a direct message to LG about the issue.  I’ll let you know if I find out anything.

@Absenm OK, it is clearer to me now: AT&T U-verse was with the box, but has now stopped, and been replaced with the AT&T TV as an on-demand APP,  but you have not yet got the APP on the LG TV, correct?

You might get more mileage out of contacting AT&T to ask when the TV app will be rolled out to LG TV's and when. I suspect it will be to the newer flagship ones first, but they should be in a position to tell you.

      I want to control my C1 with my Google Home speakers, but my Android LG ThinQ app is not sending the correct info to my Android Google Home app to link the ThinQ service.  
      When I try, the error message says "No devices were found in your LG ThinQ account".  However, the ThinQ app is signed into my account and successfully controlling my C1.
      Google Home support and I think the issue is with the ThinQ app.

      link hidden, please login to view says this should work.  My LG support agent told me it's not supported; I'm guessing she was new.

      Hi, I'm curious if anyone else is seeing this annoying new behaviour.
      I have my SKY Q box on HDMI1 and have become accustomed to switching back from Netflix (or any other app for that matter) by having HDMI1 assigned to button "1" using the Quick Access feature.  In the last week though, this feature has stopped working properly. If I am in Netflix and I press the "1" button, nothing happens (as expected). If instead I hold down the "1" button to switch to SKY I get a pop up that says this: "Do you want to add Netflix to [Quick Access 1]?".   If I then hold down the "0" button, the 3x3 grid "EDIT QUICK ACCESS" pop-up appears and I can clearly see my SKY Q/HDMI 1 in the top left grid position (button "1")!!!
      If I then switch via the Home button to HDMI1 and remove HDMI1 from Quick Access (via the  EDIT QUICK ACCESS pop up), I can then re-add it by holding down 1 or from within the pop-up. Now, if I go into Netflix and then hold down 1, my TV does (correctly) switch to HDMI1. Hurrah! If however I turn my TV off and back on, then go to Netflix, then hold down "1", I am back to square one with the question "Do you want to add Netwflix to [Quick Access 1]?"......Grrrr!!!
      I have tried switching the TV off at the wall, leaving for 10 seconds and repowering, which doesn't fix the problem (I don't believe WebOS reboots when you do this). LG appear to have made it a practical impossibility to reboot WebOS via anything other than a factory reset which I don't really want to do as it'll take me too long to get all my settings back to where I have them now. Some blogs suggest that the "User Licence agreement" setting can be changed which forces a reset from within the General tab but I don't see this on my TV (guessing that WebOS interface has changed).
      Anyone have any ideas?

      Advanced Capabilities of LG’s Deep Learning based AI DD Technology Confirmed
      by Respected Third-party Organization

      SEOUL, May 11, 2022 — LG Electronics (LG) announces that the AI technology applied to its upgradable appliance laundry solutions has received AI Algorithm Reproducibility Process Verification from UL, a global safety science leader.* A first for the home appliance industry, the verification confirms the advanced capabilities of LG’s Artificial Intelligence Direct Drive (AI DD) technology which uses deep learning to detect the types of fabrics being washed, or dried, and select the optimal cycle and settings for each load.
      Performing as advertised, LG’s AI DD is the first AI solution used in a laundry appliance to be validated by UL. The company’s state-of-the-art technology was put through a comprehensive assessment to verify its abilities, with UL measuring several criteria such as the suitability of the ‘learning’ data used by LG and the performance of its algorithm in actual usage.
      LG’s AI DD-equipped laundry solutions provide customers with more convenience and gentle fabric care. The revolutionary AI DD leverages deep learning, a technology that allows computers to think and learn by themselves, to automatically determine the optimal washing pattern for each fabric-type. Detecting the weight and softness of laundry in each load, LG’s intelligent washers and dryers deliver excellent results every time, getting clothes and linen fresh and clean while also reducing fabric damage.
      LG’s differentiated AI technology has also been recognized by various organizations including the Korea Testing Laboratory (AI safety certification) and the Korean Standards Association (AI+ certification).
      This year, LG has taken home appliance innovation even further with the introduction of its upgradable appliance concept. Boosting user convenience and value, LG upgradable appliances can add new features and functions via software and hardware upgrades available through the ThinQ app.
      “Being the first in the industry to have our cutting-edge AI technology validated by UL is a testament to our leadership in the global home appliance market,” said Lyu Jae-cheol, president of LG Electronics Home Appliance & Air Solution Company. “LG will continue to take the customer experience to new heights, and make daily life easier, with innovative home appliances leveraging our latest AI and unique laundry technologies.”
