Q70 Permanently remove “Live TV Cable” from Home Screen

Using my TV with an unsupported satellite receiver. Because if this, I have removed the "Live TV/Cable" button from the home screen but TV adds the "Live TV / Cable" icon every time I turn the TV back on. 

How do I permanently turn this off?

The TV Plus icon cannot be permanently removed from the home screen.

Actually, this is not the question I asked. 

How do I permanently remove the "Setup Live Cable TV" from the Home menu? I can remove it when I power on the TV, but it just returns each time I cycle the power.

I asked Samsung support the same question and they replied that it wasn't possible, it was part of the inherent design of their tvs. I haven't had "live tv" for over 20 years, this is insane! So just as I stopped buying Samsung phones because of all the bloatware you can't remove, I won't be buying another Samsung tv either.

Re: Q70 Permanently remove “Live TV Cable” from Home Screen

Dear SamsungLou,

 

Please help me understand. I cannot remove "Live TV Cable" because I need a way to "tune" to "Live TV or Cable". 

 

I only use a satellite receiver which apparently Samsung doesn't support.  How can I add MY satellite receiver to the "Live TV Cable" input? 

 

Thank you.

It's not a TV if you don't have the ability to pick up tv channels off the air. In that case, it's just a monitor.

Re: Q70 Permanently remove “Live TV Cable” from Home Screen

That is certainly true and is why I originally asked to get my satellite receiver to be supported! 

Samsung should allow for alternative receivers and not just the ones they know OR add my receiver which is the Armed Forces Network (AFN) satellite receiver. 

I see two options: Samsung can add it or give me an avenue to add it. Ignoring it isn't an option. 

just my $.02's
