Your TV should be connected to the main network to gain full internet and network connectivity. If you connect your TV to the guest network, it wouldn't be possible to stream media files from your computer or mobile devices that are connected to the main network. The Guest network is intended for visitors that would like to gain temporary wireless connectivity. By the way, to answer your question, you cannot eliminate the guest login screen specially if that user just connected to the Guest network. It should only ask for the password once, unless you changed it.
