If I had read this thread earlier, I might not have attempted my first TV firmware update by way of a USB today. (UK6500AUA).
But, thankfully, after the USB update, the TV is working fine.
I found a firmware update that had been released on Dec. 14th online. And when I checked for updates through the TV's Menu option, it said "No updates Available." But my TV's model number was clearly listed on the LG webpage as being for this update, so I went ahead and downloaded the update to a USB stick (2.0).
I didn't even have a Zip file extractor app on my Windows 8.1, so I had to get that first. Then I watched a YouTube video on how to add a folder to a USB drive, that had nothing on it.
I followed the LG instructions on how to extract the Zip file, and how to do the manual firmware update to the TV with a USB stick.
I have left the TV setting for no Auto Updates, as I'd like to wait and see, in the future, if people have issues with an update, before I allow it on my TV. I do like the idea that I have a firmware update on file, that I could reinstall, if a future firmware release turned out to be buggy.
Cable Channel Choice is the only choice I want to make !!
