Why is the Home screen always displayed when I turn on the TV?

    IMPORTANT: This article applies only to specific products and/or operating systems. Check Applicable Products and Categories for details.

    This is because the Power on behavior settings is set to Home screen. You can change the TV startup behavior to Last input if you prefer your TV to power on with the last watched TV channel or external input.

    1. On the remote control, press the Quick Settings button.
    2. Select Power on behavior.
    3. Select Google TV home screen (Home screen) or Last used input (Last input).


    • If the power is turned on within 30 seconds after the previous power off, the TV will start with the last displayed app, regardless of the Power on behavior setting.
    • If the power is turned off while displaying the Home screen or another application screen (except TV channels and external inputs), the TV will start on the Home screen, regardless of the Power on behavior setting.
    • The default Power on behavior value depends on the status of the signed-in Google account. If you signed-in to the Google account on the TV, the default value is Home screen. If not, Last input is the default.
