Easy way to switch audio ouput

Recommended Posts

Hi!

 

Quick question:  is there a quick & easy way to switch audio output on a LG WebOS tv? 

 

Problem:

My wife likes to watch TV with the TV speakers as audio output. But when I watch a movie, I like to use my wireless headphones which is connected through optical out. So we have do the following like 4 times a day:

 

Select Internal speakers:  home ► settings ► advanced setting ► Sound ► Sound Out ► Internal TV Speaker

or:

Select Optical Out:  home ► settings ► advanced setting ► Sound ► Sound Out ► Audio Out (Optical/HDMI ARC)

 

I really hope there's a quicker way, because the menu system of WebOS is so slow on my LG 42LB670V. I have to wait like 10 seconds for every button I click.

 

Thanks!

Yes, there is a quicker way. 

 

In case you use a Magic Remote: there is a special button above the settings button. Push it and a onscreen-popup will appear. From there you can change the audio output directly.

 

Don't know if this button exist with the standard remote.

Another option may be the use of the voice control feature or the LG remote app for your smartphone. Haven't checked this but may be worth a try for you.

Hi, thanks for your reply!

 

Unfortunately, I seem to have a different generation magic remote:

There is no settings button. However, it does have a mic button. I'll try to find a (voice) command list for tv settings.

So far it just searches online to whatever I say in the mic.

    • Add Fox+ in the LG Content Store/ webOS

      Can you please make Fox+ available to the LG content store/ webOS. I have a LG 43UJ630V which is a 2017 model and I can't find it on their content store. I subscribed to Fox+ considering I could watch it on a big screen and not only on smart phone. I am very much disappointed that this limits me from watching it on my UHD TV. Subscription is wasted without seeing it on my big screens. We are now in 2019 guys! We are not moving backwards. Let us move forward and make Fox+ available to all subscribers.

      Hi,
      How about a setting to set the default Audio Volume for each input?  Or, at least remember it for each input when you change inputs.

      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 LG webOS tv model 42lb650v connected to a Denon A/V. I couldn't found any way of have the tv speakers and external speakers connected at same time. In other TV's I can have the external speakers on and the tv muted. But if I power off the external speakers I only have to increase the sound level of the tv. With webOS i have to change audio output settings all the time, it's ridiculous.
      Please fix this as soon as possible. Thanks!!
