I have just got a new TV.
On my old one, when I listened to BBC radio programmes, the current piece of music would be
shown on screen
The new TV shows it when it is first on, but it then sticks there.
I can only recover it by the old favourite "Switch it off and back on again"
The old one was a Samsung,the new one an LG.
I have trawled the multi - multi lingual Instructions to no avail.
Can anyone suggest what I could try

Is it using the Internet ? I listen on Freeview and it's never given song title info, or any data, save the station name on the splash screen.
I've just turnt over to Radio 2 on Freeview 702 and its showing the singer and the song title.

There was a option to press something to hide the screen so is that what you do OG?
No
Maybe BBC shows something. None of the radio stations I listen to does. Always assumed Freeview didn't support it.
If its a smart tv listen through the station's app or through the TuneIn Radio app.
On my LG tv I get a screen with the song playing by pressing the green button on the remote.
You could try that maybe.

Thanks all
Kwillmot, my green button just turns the screen black

Old Geezer, the commercial stations don't show them - just BBC

The Corbyloon, what you describe is how my old telly worked.
I'm on Freeview - no internet
Well, if you have a new smart TV and don't connect it to the internet, you are missing an awful lot of stuff.
