Just bought an LGLED-65UJ630 65INCH TV. Right away I started to get the message "This app will now restart to free up more memory". After searching the internet and forums, I now understand that this problem is huge, it has been going on for years now and it is right across many models of LG TV's.
I have tried everything to fix this problem. It has the latest firmware. I did the factory reset and that lasted 4 hours before I got the message back. I turn off the TV and leave it for 10 minutes, maybe one hour later I get the message. I delete browsing history, maybe 10 minutes and I get the message..... you get the message.
As I understand it, the problem is that LG TV's don't have enough internal memory, but they have shipped a ton of their "smart" TV's with this problem.
My question is, has anybody heard anything from anybody, anywhere about a solution to this problem. I really want to keep this TV, but it is not fit for purpose in this state.
I really need to verify my understanding on how the whole Record / Play and Live TV works.
I own a brand new OLED 65GX6LA TV of which I am very satisfied with picture quality and all but...
I have noticed that when I am watching a program that I am recording and use Time machine to go back to some past bits, when the record has finished I am kicked out of my viewing and I need to go back to the list of recordings to start again and then I need to look for the place where I was. Additionally I can't record a program from the satellite tuner and watch from the terrestrial Tuner (or viceversa) even though they are separate tuners.
To me it looks that the current Record / Play and Pause Live TV functionality has been implemented using a single memory buffer which doesn't allow any of the above.
Is my assumption correct or is there anything that I haven't done in my set up that makes it so limiting?
Many thanks, Nic.

I added a programme to the favourites list and since then the TV continually flashes between a programme and the 'Live TV' symbol shown in the Home display.
No input from the remote control is accepted, the flashing continues.
Tried turning the power off and restarting, no change.
Turning TV off and on, bo change.
Leaving it off or on, no change.
