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)
"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?

With Advanced Technology and On-Trend Design, Company’s Expanded Range of
Premium Built-in Kitchen Appliances Delivers an Elevated Culinary Lifestyle
SEOUL, Feb. 21, 2024 — LG Electronics (LG) is set to introduce a diverse range of luxurious built-in kitchen packages at the 2024 Kitchen & Bath Industry Show (KBIS), taking place in Las Vegas, USA, from February 27-29. Taking center stage, the company’s new Signature Kitchen Suite Transitional Series appliances – including the Combi Wall Oven, Double Wall Oven and Single Oven featuring cutting-edge Gourmet AI technology – boast sophisticated design and intelligent functionality.
Bold Sophistication With New Transitional Built-in Kitchen Package
The arrival of the new Transitional Series built-in kitchen package marks a significant expansion of the Signature Kitchen Suite lineup, which continues to set the standard for elegant simplicity, understated luxury and exceptional quality. Joining the existing Professional Series (Traditional) range, the Transitional Series has been created in response to consumers’ growing preference for transitional and contemporary kitchen design.
Signature Kitchen Suite Transitional Series appliances feature satin stainless steel exteriors with an elegant, velvety matte finish that elevates the kitchen environment. Delivering a chic, minimalist appearance, Transitional Series appliances are equipped with slimmer handles than those found on Professional Series models. The design decision to move away from the use of conventional control knobs also contributes to a sleeker look.
The Signature Kitchen Suite Transitional Series Built-in Kitchen Package on show at KBIS 2024 includes French-Door refrigerators, column refrigerators, column wine refrigerators, dishwashers, wall ovens and more. The breadth of the brand’s built-in offerings demonstrates a firm commitment to providing consumers with a wide range of premium products to help them complete their dream kitchen.
Enhanced Cooking Experience With Advanced Gourmet AI Technology
Debuting at this year’s exhibition, Signature Kitchen Suite’s Gourmet AI-equipped Wall Oven lineups deliver an enhanced culinary experience. The company’s innovative Gourmet AI technology is able to identify ingredients the user has on hand and can automatically suggest optimal recipes from 80 auto cook options. Thanks to the oven’s built-in high-definition camera, users can remotely monitor what they’re cooking via the ThinQ app. LG’s intelligent camera enables features such as time-lapse recording and the ability to capture photos and share them online. Additionally, the inclusion of ThinQ Care means users get to enjoy continuous feature upgrades throughout the life of their oven.
Another high-performance Signature Kitchen Suite innovation, the Steam-Combi convection oven seamlessly integrates steam and convection cooking functionality for outstanding gourmet results. The Steam-Combi convection system ensures fast and even cooking, using the natural properties of steam to help maintain the taste, texture and appearance of food. Without requiring any preheating, the oven’s steam sous vide mode allows for the creation of delectable dishes that are moist and tender on the inside and crispy and flaky on the outside.
What’s more, Transitional Series ovens boast LG’s distinctive and highly convenient InstaView window, enabling users to see inside without having to open the door.
Wide Range of Premium Kitchen Lineups for Diverse Culinary Lifestyles and Spaces
Other Signature Kitchen Suite innovations featured at KBIS 2024 include 48-inch panel ready kitchen appliances that can be color coordinated to match existing cabinetry, and a streamlined 36-inch French-Door refrigerator designed for smaller spaces. LG’s diverse range of ultra-premium built-in solutions offers each customer the opportunity to create a kitchen that truly embodies their personal style and meets the needs of their own unique culinary lifestyle.
“Through the expansion of the Signature Kitchen Suite lineup with the new Transitional Series, and the introduction of Gourmet AI-equipped Wall Ovens, LG is strengthening its position in the luxury built-in market and reaffirming its technological and design leadership,” said Lyu Jae-cheol, president of LG Electronics Home Appliance & Air Solution Company. “We will continue to cater to consumers’ evolving tastes, providing a diverse range of ultra-premium built-in appliances offering the very best in performance, convenience and aesthetics.”

As in title.
Everytime I watch something on Plex I get constant Dolby vision pop ups, sometimes random and sometimes staying for multiple minutes.
there isn’t anything wrong with the playback, it’s just the constant pop ups that are very annoying and frustrating that I can’t disable them.
Other manufacturers have the option to disable it, so I can’t imagine why webos shouldn’t have it.
thanks in advance, have a nice holiday!
I've seen an older thread on this topic but it doesn't look like anyone found a solution to disabling the screen saver, so I'll try a new one.
On virtually all my LG TV's (I have three OLED's and two LCD), the screen saver interferes with my music app (like Plex, Spotify or Amazon Music). I mainly use Plex for playback of my music which is stored on a central server (NAS) and from the app loaded on a Fire TV stick or cube. After about 20-30 minutes, the album art and other related music information (lyrics, song title, duration, etc) all goes black. If I run Plex (or Spotify) directly on the LG TV via the LG Content store app, the screen saver with fireworks always comes on in about 2 minutes.
I've tried all the different methods to disable the screen saver function including turning off the Timers, Auto Power Off, HDD Storage, etc. I also tried opening the hidden menus by pressing the mute button 5 times but that menu didn't have anything relevant.
Interesting is that the screen saver doesn't come on when using Spotify on a Fire TV stick or if I playback music through a USB device. But i don't use those methods often, mainly Plex to access my music server where I have about 500 CD's stored in ALAC format.
Has anyone found a way to disable the screen saver function? I know the logic for having it (to prevent OLED burn in) but I'm not leaving the same image on for more than the song duration (about 3-5 minutes). It's annoying to check the screen for the a music title or see who is on only to find a black screen looking back. Thanks for any help.
Before I buy this very nice LG TV with WebOS 23, my wife and I were using an old samsung with an android TV box. So it is very difficult to adapt to the cursor / pointer. I read the documentation and found it is possible to press the direction buttons to momentarely remove the cursor (which is painfull to navigate for us). But each time I press one of the home, return, wheel buttons, then you know what, the pointer is back on the screen. I read the documentation from A to Z and didn't find any parameter to permanently DISABLE the pointer ... Any workaround or parameter that I missed ?
