The LG TV just gets text on channel 100. I haven't tried 555, as I'm currently watching the Toshiba TV in my bedroom. It gets the various links you describe on channel 100. On 555 the Toshiba gets a message that the accessible TV is starting soon.

Is Amazon Fire better than Chromecast? However, I don't know if Amazon Fire supports Britbox and Discovery+.

I'll try and find a mirroring app that works.

Charles Stuart:

If you have HbbTV turned on, then Channels 100 & 555 should display correctly on the LG.
There are quite a few sets, your Toshiba is obviously one, that don't fully support Freeview Play and HbbTV and it's an oddity that such sets display 100 correctly but not 555, I have yet to discover why.

I'm afraid I can't help regarding Amazon Fire & Chromecast.

With Hbb turned on 555 and 100 do work on the LG. Britbox still doesn't. I downloaded a free mirroring app but I couldn't get it to work. I phoned Britbox to see what they recommended and the customer service agent who took the call gave me the personal recommendation of using an Amazon Firestick. I bought the cheapest version at John Lewis (which was even cheaper because I work for Waitrose) and it works brilliantly.
