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 4 LG TV's in my home wont Airplay ESPN Watch from my Iphone and Ipad.  Youtube, Disney both work to the TV.  No matter what i do, the TV just displays the Home Kit Screen.  Does anyone else have this issue?  I have tried all of the troubleshooting steps from the different websites.  Of course, Apple support says it's LG that is the problem and when I called LG tech support, they told me it was an Apple issue!

      I have an LG OLED55C6P TV. Because of hearing difficulties, I generally use bluetooth headphones when watching the TV.  As far as I have been able to determine, there appears to be no way to use the headphones and also have the TV speakers working at the same time. This means that if I'm watching TV, no one else can watch and listen unless they have headphones.  Am I missing something?  Is there a way to have the headphones and TV speakers working at the same time?

      I'm not getting any audio from the apps via the HDMI via ARC connection to my receiver.  This occurred two weeks ago and was unable to resolve it, but ironically there was new firmware released that same day for my B6 (3/31/17) and this fixed the issue.  However, now I again can't get it working after a TV reset and tinkering with the audio settings again.  I tried to load the firmware again, but it appears this is not possible to forceable load the same firmware.

      I have a NANO91ANA LG TV connected via HDMI to a Yamaha RX-V677 Receiver. Normally when I turn the TV on it also turns the receiver on and I can control volume via the LG remote, whether it is an app on the TV or from another device connected to my receiver (Apple TV or cable box). Now the receiver is not turning on and ARC audio is not working. I think there may have been a software update the other day, but I'm not sure. However, everything was working properly until last night. The last time this happened it seemed to correct itself (it seems to be kind of sporadic), but this time it did not. I do not know what to do to correct this, but it is a major pain as I'm now having to deal with 4 remotes, plus I can't get sound out of my surround speakers when using an app on the TV.  Any suggestions would be appreciated.

      TV is the 2017 uj6500 series,
      for the last 4 - 6 weeks the FIlmrise channels do not properly load.  They install, you can select them,
      you get the channel splash screen, then the screen goes black and stays that way until you exit out.
      Uninstalling/reinstalling doesn't help.
      Any info appreciated
