Magic Remote AN-MR650 for UH635


Gandalf999

Question

Hi All

This is pretty unbelievable.

In the adverts for my TV it kept going on about how good the Smart Remote was.

One of the reasons I bought the TV was for the Smart Remote. I was disappointed to find that it was not included in the box but thought, no problem, I will buy one from LG UK or Amazon UK.

WRONG.

This item is not available on the UK LG site. WTF.

No sign of it on Amazon UK either.

I emailed LG only to be ignored.

This is my first LG TV and possibly the last due to their rubbish customer support and lack of advertised accessories.

Has anyone managed to get a 2016 Smart Remote in the UK ?

Thanks.

It's interesting.

I just bought LG 43" UH668V for £699 which comes with the Magic Remote

 

The LG rep in the store was also showing me the same TV - but without the Magic Remote which retailed at £549

 

I'm wondering if you have simply bought the TV that doesn't support a Magic Remote?

I feel your pain. I bought a 2016 LG TV from the very.co.uk site, which in the title said "with Magic Remote" and in the description told you all about the magic remote functionality. I never got the remote, Very seem unable to comprehend the difference between the standard remote and the magic remote and looking around it seems you cannot buy this remote in the UK. However, I noticed on the lg site, one of the places you can buy from ships to the UK. Although if you decide to pay customs you will end up paying around £80.00 for it.

 

I also think this will be the last LG item i buy.

You couldn't make it up.

They push the Magic Remote in all their advertising for their TVs and yet you cannot actually buy one.

Here is the unbelievable email I received from LG.

Hi there Nigel

Thank you for your email.

In regards to this, unfortunately as it stands at the moment, the AN-MR650 is not available in the UK to purchase seperately.

We are still awaiting for a stockist to get these in, in order to be able to purchase them.

Unfortunately, I do not have any information on when these will be available.

I apologise for any inconvenience that this may cause.

Should you need any more assistance, you can reply to this email by clicking the additional questions link at the bottom of this email.

Thank you in advance.

Kind regards

Ben

      Hi,
      My TV is driving me nuts!
       
      I keep getting reminders for programs starting for programs I don’t watch or have never watched and 2. The tv even switches on for scheduled programs that I haven’t set.. actually I have only ever set one program reminder and that has now been deleted.
       
      I can’t see any programs in the reminder page or anywhere in the tv programmer?
       
      Short of resetting the tv I don’t know what else to try? And I don’t really want to do that until I know how the tv ended up like this? Plus I don’t want to have to reload and sign in to all my apps 😬

      I hope LG will consider to enable the Disney+ Hotstar Apps for Model 2016 LG TV. My LG TV Model is 55UH617T.  I've raised this concern few times and hope LG will take necessary action.

      My LG TV remote stopped working with my JAMO sound bar. As of yesterday, I can no longer control my sound bar volume with the TV remote. When I try to make the sound bar pair to the remote, nothing happens. I know it's not the sound bar because I took an old Samsung TV remote and it pairs perfectly with the sound bar. The bizarre thing is, I can pair the LG remote with the sound bar and the lights on the sound bar look like they are working perfectly until I turn on the TV. As soon as I do that, the remote no longer works with the TV. 
      The audio output is set to optical like it has been for the last two years. Nothing has changed except the remote not working. Samsung works fine, the small sound bar remote works fine. The LG remote controls the TV volume if I use the internal speakers. This makes no sense to me.
