Magic Remote AN-MR650 for UH635

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

      Magic remote wont work ,wont reset tried home button and  bk button nothing no red light blinking and now TV wont changed from bird asking to tap ok button

      OK. I have a 2018 LG Smart TV model OLED65C8PUA.   The TV  'magically' recognizes and (badly) displays/ plays the 2gb of photos, videos and audio residing on my Western Digital 4TB My Passport  external hard drive I have. The problem is the TV is the ONLY device that WILL RECONIZE THE DRV! 8 diffirent computers running from Vista to Win 10 have given me 'DRV (x) is not accessable'. At one time the drv was password protected and it worked fine. The exact password was lost so I tried a number of variations and was able to finally unlock the drv and remove the password  using WD Utilities. It worked for a bit and I was able to copy out a few files using a Surface Pro/ Windows 10  but it stopped and now with that Surface Pro and the other windows machines  I get `D is not accessible. The parameter is incorrect'.  I even put it on a Samsung smart TV - none will read the drv, ONLY THE LG!  The LG also displays the DRV'S volume label and  content filenames as well. 
      I want to copy these files before the drive fails as the catch here is the LG seems to produce one or two "unrecognized files' every time I use it and some of these videos are one-of family heirlooms! I want to avoid another $300 data recovery bill if possible. And if the LG can read it one would think there is a way forward.
      Any suggestions will be most appreciated!

      Hello,
      Is there any way of installing an usb gigabit network adapter on a webos smart TV?  The builtin wired adapter is only 100mbps (on a 2000$+ TV, shame  on you LG!!!)  while the wifi (N) is very poor, with the router at 1m from TV it only gets half the bandwidth of the wired network. Anyway the wired network  maxes out near 100mbps but I need more bandwidth as I have 4k video content with bitrates grater than 100mbps which I cannot stream without stuttering to TV through XPLAY/PLEX. 
      Kind regards,
