  1. After looking into Simplink some more, here's what mostly works for me: 1. Make sure the Apple TV is not assigned a specific device in the Input Manager app. Delete it if it has one. 2. Turn off the LG TV's Quickstart mode. 3. Turn off the Simplink mode which turns off the device (Apple TV) when TV power is turned off. 4. Set the Apple TV to never go into standby. 5. Use the LG TV Magic Remote to turn on the TV. With this setup, the Apple TV can be controlled with the LG TV Magic remote most of the time. Sometimes it loses control and sometimes the video is messed
  2. I'm not sure if this is an LG or Apple issue, or if I have to try a different HDMI cable (the package says it's the latest standard) but here's what I've seen so far: I have the AppleTV 4k using Dolby Vision which looks great. 1. When using the AppleTV remote to turn on the AppleTV and LG TV (using LG Simplink), sometimes the video signal is messed up – it's blurry and out of sync. Changing the input to Live TV and then back to the AppleTV fixes it. Sometimes it just works right away. 2. When using the LG remote to turn on the TV, then switching to the AppleTV the LG Magic remot
  3. The short answer is there are projects like this one: https://github.com/Danovadia/lgtv-http-server which have the IP communication protocol. I've tried it and it's very complete. I then explored a bit more and found that I can run 'Homebridge' and a plug-in called 'homebridge-lgtv2' so that the TV can be turned on/off from Apple's Home app. If you are using an automation system you might find similar code. For me, my automation system talks to the lgtv-http-server to perform the functions through a Mac Mini which also doubles as a media server. Before buying an LG I saw that Samsung was
  4. Good news... some time over the past week Sling TV showed up on WebOS 3.5. In fact I think it auto-installed to the TV and there are advertisements in the sidebar. So looks like I'll be giving it a try this football season.
  5. Some updates: Plex is now available for WebOS 3.5... has been for a few weeks. It works real well but of course I have some developer suggestions: 1. The Plex startup screen starts out black, then you see a dark gray border around the Plex logo, then some resizing, then loaded. Just annoying. 2. The arrow keys on the remote functions are different than the built-in Photos/Videos app and the Youtube/Vudu apps... for example when I use the arrow down I'd just like to see where I am in the video progress, but with plex it jumps around. 3. Plex is slow to start unlike every oth
  6. As of today, it's still not available for WebOS 3.5. I can't imagine what the wait is for. I will tell you though that having to piggyback through a device (like the free Roku 4k SlingTV sent me) is a terrible option. The LG 3.5 interface is so responsive, colorful, and interactive with the magic remote that going to the slow Roku remote and the terrible interface was a let down. I cancelled my SlingTV subscription on April 19th and I'm hoping the WebOS 3.5 version comes out by football season For those who've tried SlingTV on WebOS 3.0, what's your thoughts?
  7. I had left on multi-view, left the room, and when I came back about an hour later, the interface was gone and looked great! So... is there a way to hide the interface using the remote and just have the 2 screens showing? What's the timeout set to and can that be changed? To would be nice if it was just a minute or two.
  8. It would be nice. I think if SlingTV wants to be number one in streaming, then instead of giving out free Roku's and discounted Apple TVs they should have a native TV app. I'm finding that I can do the majority of enjoying the LG TV with just the magic remote... but when you have to switch remotes it's no longer fun.
  9. I'm checking out the UJ7700 with WebOS 3.5 and figured I'd share some thoughts. First, I have found it to be very snappy and fun to use. It seems that everyday I find a new feature or use. Changing channels is quick, the extra content like Cast, YouTube Videos, and Web Browser is nice. I haven't used WebOS before so it might just be very similar to recent versions. I'm a developer and enthusiast so I have started poking around with the apps and capabilities. As far as downloadable apps go, these are not available in WebOS 3.5: Pandora, Plex, ESPN, and SlingTV. The IP control is very
