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

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.

      Just purchased this and the set up is driving me nuts. I have a Sony reciever that I use for my audio out as well as HDMI device switching. The output of the reciever is going to HDMI 1. The TV audio out is set to HDMI (ARC) device.  When watching devices directly connected to the reciever (cable box, roku, DVD, Tivo), audio out is fine. If I try switching to the smart menu or the antenna, there is no audio going from the TV back to the reciever. I also have a Roku I can use for streaming, but not for OTA.  Should I just route everything directly into the TV, and use the optical out to get sound to the reciever? Also since setting up the TV and remote there is strange interaction btween the TV and the reciever. I noticed that my cable box, dvd, and roku all show up devices attached to HDMI 1, and clicking on that device will change the input on the reciever, but I have no control over the reciever from the LG remote, volume and muting buttons have no effect. Also there soesn't seem to be anyway to control my Fios cable box, a Motorola HD QIp 7100-1. I have the IR blaster sitting right next to it

      Guys, please advise how we can stream the FIFA World Cup on LG Smart Tv? Jio Cinema has won the exclusive rights and it would be an absolute shame if we are not able to watch the biggest sporting event in the world on our smart TV. Nullifies the entire purpose of a Smart TV. Kindly get this addressed.
