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

      Hi,
      I've recently bought a 65QNED913PA TV (currently with latest official software) and I connected my Bluetooth headset to it - Jabra Elite 85t. Whenever I try to use pause button on my headset (while watching YouTube, Netflix, Disney,...) sound gets muted, but video does not pause. When I push the button again sound comes back and nothing else happens. Should my TV support pausing video from my headset or this does not work by default?
      Regards
      Maciej

      Hello,
      I am not able to force my new TV LG 49UN7400 to sound output only for BT - not BT headphones + internal speakers. Headphones are correctly paired, because "headphones + internal speakers" works, but I want hear sound ONLY in headphones and the choice "Bluetooth" is not active/selectable... 😕 Any suggestions? Thanks in advance.

      Hello, 
      I have recently purchased an LG C2 Oled TV which I connected with my Samsung HW-Q800B 5.1 soundbar via eArc HDMI. When I select "Passthrough" as a Digital Sound Output on LG TV sound advanced settings, there is an obvious sound response delay around 3 seconds when I pause and unpause the movie on Netflix or Prime video streaming apps on LG TV. For example, when I start the movie, the video starts and sound starts 2-3 secs later. When I pause the movie, the sound continues for 2-3 secs after the video has been stopped. There is no any lip sync issue, just this response delay of the sound from the soundbar. This happens only on LG TV Apps. If I connect to an external HDMI device such as AMAZON Fire Stick 4K, there is no such sound delay issue neither on Netflix neither on Prime Video. 
      Thus, the problem seems to be on LG TV apps.
      If I change the Digital Sound Output to "Auto" instead of "Passthrough" the issue is gone but sound quality is not as good as with Passthrough selected. So I do not want this to be my option.
      I would appreciate if someone could come with a solution on this.

      Hi just got a new QNED LG to replace 2021 Nano tv
      the problem is I can’t move my HD channels down to  channels 1 to5.
      the program manager does not have the function to move channels like my old Nano tv which is only a year older.
      is there anyway I can get around this strange function?
