Device Menu MegamixWhile we still have a strong webOS community, many webOS users have moved on to other platforms and no longer use their webOS phones as their daily driver. But, many of those are still keeping their foot in the webOS-door by using their old phones on Wi-Fi only* or maybe even SIM swapping when they miss the joys of webOS. Or, you may just have multiple webOS phones around and like to use some as a media player for music or podcasts or have given your phones to others in the family to use. If this is the case, one of the things that you should do when using a phone without a cellular connection is to disable those cellular radios.  We have gone over how to

      Hi,  I have an LG 43UN71006LB with OS v4.50.53 (latest)

      I want to buy a TV for my mother who has dementia & poor eyesight.

      She needs to be able to control the TV with Alexa - i.e. voice only without having to hold a button on a remote down.
      I thought I'd test this on my TV and it works very well.  I've even set "routines" on Alexa so that saying "Alexa, BBC 1" is a shortcut for "Alex, change the channel on LGTV to 101" etc.

      But - it doesn't work for radio channels (channel 704 is BBC Radio 4):
      "Alexa, change channel on LGTV to 101" - works perfectly (101 = BBC 1 - a TV channel)
      "Alexa, change channel on LGTV to 705" - "that command doesn't work on device LGTV"

      It basically won't work with any of the radio channels (700 to 790)
      Also tried:
      "Alexa, change channel on LGTV to BBC RADIO 4" - "hmm - I don't know that"
      "Alexa, play BBC Radio 4 on LGTV" - "I didn't find anything called LGTV that can play music"

      I thought I'd try to change 704 to another channel outside of the 700 to 790 range but when I tried:
      "The programme number cannot be edited between programme 700 to 790"

      I tried playing the Radio on the Alexa then using Sound Share to turn the TV into a Bluetooth speaker - this works really well - except that I can't turn Sound Share on using Alexa:

      "Alexa, enable Sound Share on LGTV"  - "that command doesn't work on device LGTV"

      Anyone have any ideas?
