  1. Good to hear ! Funny, some sort of remapping happened to me as well, albeit automatically. My settop box was first "recognised" by the TV as "Ballard Rural Telephone" (an unknown to me, USA-based company), and HomeKit didn't work. Now, the last time, it was "recognised" by the TV as "Entone", the manufacturer !!!. Weird coincidence. Well, glad to help someone from Kansas!
  2. correction! FW 04.70.05. I checked the Dutch LG website. 3. Release History [03.50.29] 1. To improve WISA audio output issue. [03.50.31] 1. Picture Quality Update. [03.50.34] 1.

Enhancement to Amazon Alexa service 5. Enhancement to Home Dashboard So no version 04.70.12 here in NL. Are firmware versions in US different? With version 03.60.19 I was not able to use homeKit
  3. @tvguyfirmware 4.70.5; for the LG of course. So newer. I was even able to connect the LG OLED to Homekit with the connection MagicRemote-Settopbox INTACT! But beware: I am in the Netherlands, and I see that u are in the USA. So maybe different firmware updates apply
  4. nope, that one only works with my Apple TV console
  5. Yes, I can turn it on and off using the app. And use "scenes" (e.g. turn off tv when I leave the house). Also, I can open the "settings" menu of the TV, but cannot navigate these settings using the app. Furthermore I can select my settop box, Airplay or Live TV (not in use, I don't have cable). I cannot use the home app to further control the TV, it doesn't work as a universal remote. So basically, ATM, it is a fancy ON/OFF switch, nothing more, and thus a bit disappointing.
  6. update. I tried to use homekit again (there were LG firmware update and AppleiOS updates). At first I couldn't get it to work. My mistake, the LG was still partly connected to HomeKit. After severing that connection I was able to connect to Homekit AND use the connection Magic Remote + Settop Box. To the problem is fixed!!!!

  8. I have the same issue; see my thread: And more extensively here: Bottomline: Magic Remote pairing with my set top box (using bluetooth) interferes with proper usage of the Homekit app. No solution yet.
  9. Thanks for helping. Both WiFi and BT were already turned on, but stil the failure as described earlier is there. I fear we have ri rely on a firmware update......
  10. For the Netherlands here: correct, no HDR/Dolby Vision in naive Disney app on LG OLED 55C9
  11. @tvguy TX; I always like to figure out why things don't work, though I am not a technician. Hopefully some forum moderator will pick this up and fix it!
  12. Bit late reply, didn't have time. I tried all the solutions you describe; also iCloud keychain is enabled. I can see my LG TV now in my iPhone (I am at work); I was able to couple it to HomeKit the moment I disconnected my Settop box from the Magic Remote. After that I re-initialized the coupling of the LG Magic Remote with my settop box (because it is very handy and I want to use one remote. But ATM that I turn on the TV and my settop Box, the HomeKit app shows the TV but displays a message it cannot connect to the TV.
  13. @JespertheendI think the LG Magic Remote uses BT and RF by default, and can be set up with IR: https://support.sonos.com/s/article/3479?language=en_US. So interference is a possibility with BT....... Hopefully an LG moderater is listening in
  14. Hi Jesper, No, I haven't moved it. In general, a settopbox is close to the TV (it is connected with an HdMI cable), so placing it far away from the TV isn't practical. When I disconnect the settopbox from the TV (meaning I cannot use the LG Magic Remote to operate the settopbox and use it's original remote) there is NO Homekit conflict. The problem IMO lies in the BT connection of the Magic Remote with the settopbox that is conflicting with the BT connection of Homekit
