Brand new LG TV (WebOS 8x) WILL NOT stay off when turned off with the remote? Out of the box, connected to internet, seems to have been updated, and working fine. But when I hit the power off with the remote, the TV reports 'Life is Good' seems to turn off, i.e. go into standby, and then a few seconds later, turns back on. If the device connected to the TV on the last active HDMI port is OFF, I get the No Signal warning. So I know the active HDMI input is not generating any signal. I want to believe that any other device on any other HDMI port might be an issue? But then the TV would switch to that HDMI port, no? This is really an issue! If I use the phone app I can turn off the TV and it seems to stay off, at least does not come back on in a few seconds like the remote? If I send 'standby' via HDMI-CEC, that seems to work as well, the TV seems to stay in standby mode. This a bug?
Some tutorials explain how to do it.
We first need to root the TV with scripts such as RootMyTV, and then install dts_restore.
Both tools are free and available at github.
I'm not writing the links because I don't know if it's allowed in this forum and because I take no responsibility.
My question is:
Has anybody tried this process? Does it work?
The documentation says if you have any problem you can just factory reset the TV, but I don't dare to do it.
