Program Guide on LG OLED TVs?

Anyone else having issues with how the program guide (EPG) works with OTA on LG OLED TVs?

On my recently purchased LG OLED55C8, the guide won't display program information (it just says 'no information' for each time slot and channel) unless I click on a channel name/number - then it will load program info, but only for that one channel (and any sub-channels). It also only gets a few hours' worth of program info, and it forgets all loaded program info if you turn the TV off. As a bonus, on some channels, clicking on the channel in the guide, or opening the guide while watching the channel, will wipe out all program info for all *other* channels, if that info has previously been loaded channel by channel in the same viewing session. Have tried rescanning channel tuning, resetting TV to factory defaults, and disconnecting and reconnecting the coax. LG has no answers, says it's normal. Never had this issue with OTA and built-in program guides in other TVs.

Yeah if OTA tuners and the EPG are important to you,
I have learned to "try before you buy"...
With the variability in sizes between styles, I don't like to buy Levis jeans
anymore without trying them on first either.

If I wasn't happy with it, I would return it to the store as defective and buy something else
