2 HMDI channels using Dual Play feature, 2 people watch a different channel.

I really would like to see the feature to watch 2 HDMI channels at the same time.

One with headset, and one on speakers (or two headsets)

 

This would solve a lot of frustation in families, like one person wants to play a game and the other wants to watch TV etc.

 

Obvioulsy you would need two HDMI sources. TV decoder, media-player, game console, blu-ray player ....

 

If you want a marketing name, you can call it Dual Watch ;)

With 4K TV's you wouldn't even lose resolution on your two 1080p signals.

 

Thanks !!

This feature is a must for 2 games consoles on same screen for online multiplayer with the wife!

Guess it would be like the Picture in picture mode as a 50/50 split and have the dual play option on.

Sound is tricky maybe have one go to headphones via audio jack or Bluetooth headphones?

Me too, I only signed up to express that it would be a great feature and to share some info: on AVS forum Nilzilla found a device that could be doing exactly the trick what we  were looking for: the synchronization and side by side packing of the 2 pictures from different sources:

The device he proposed has resolution limitations, but we could get together and link up a 4K multiviewer with a dual play screen and give it a shot! 

 

Could someone from LG please test it and verify if it worked? If nothing else but this could bring back the reason for passive 3D on a 4K.. I would be willing (any time) to pay 10-15% premium on a 3K+ OLED 65 inch 4 K TV. LG please take heed and action!

There is a device on eBay for £80 

link hidden, please login to view

its demonstrated on YouTube by this guy as having a shared 50/50 splitscreen side by side

ive looked a fair bit for better devices and can only find 1080p output for devices at this price point. I don't think 1080p will be an issue anway because I am pretty certain my tv can't output 2160p (4k) to both dual play glasses. It's probably outputting 1080p or 1440p to each eye in in 3D or each pair of glasses in dual play

if I'm playing PS4 with my wife this wont be a problem but when I want to put my PS4 pro on by itself and have higher res I'll probabaly use a splitter to another input on my TV

      I have a LG TV model 55EG9A7T and I have been trying to connect my sennheiser bluetooth headphones using the wireless sound sync for the longest time but it is not able to find the device under available devices.
      I tried to call in LG tech support - but no one seems sure whether only LG brand headphones are supported. 
      Does anyone know if only LG headphones are supported?

      HBO Max came out recently and unfortunately they haven't built an app for lg webOS TVs yet. 
      The following devices are supported by HBO Max. If a device is supported, you'll find the HBO Max app in the app store.
      Android phones and tablets (with Android OS 5+) Android TV (OS 5+) Apple TV (4th gen and later) Chromebooks Chromecast iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch (with iOS 12.2+) PC and Mac computers PlayStation 4 Samsung TV (2016+) Xbox One So if you have any of these devices hooked up to your LG webOS TV your solution is to use one of these methods.

      TV Model : LG 43UP7750
      Not sure if it's a hardware or Web OS fault , Whenever there is a powercut my TV fails to pick up system time automatically . There is a default time set and whenever I have a power cut the time is setting to the default time . I think that LG has not included any battery at hardware level to automatically store time . So whenever I have a powercut I have to wait for few minutes for my TV to set the time automatic . 
      My parents use hotstar app a lot so they get  an Certification error and asks to check the time since the certificate is expired . So they call me to set the time or restart the tv for it to automatically refresh the system time . 
      Make it a priority to set the system time first on restart .

      During powercuts my ISP logs me out of account , so when I try to access TV it just says network error instead of asking me to login to my ISP Provider . 
      It would be convenient if we could login to the ISP account on TV itself instead of relying on another device .
