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

      I have a UK6300 LG TV. It has always worked faultlessly. However it now will not show the pointer unless I restart it and then it only there of only for 20 seconds and then it is gone. The LAN cable notification constantly disconnects and reconnects. The Web Browser no longer opens on my selected page. The Software version is the latest and when I tried to manually update the software in case the auto update got corrupted it will not recognize the USB drive as having the software on it. The software browser version is 05.50.15.
      Any ideas what to do. I have two other LG TV's and all work perfectly.

      I have a  LG OLED55C14LB WebOS TV in the same room as my xubuntu desktop computer and router.

      I have installed Gnome Network Displays on the Linux PC and both machines are on the same 5G network.

      When I connect the PC to the TV via WiFi the TV puts up a 'cancel' option and no option to connect. The Network display app only has an option to 'Return' which closes the connection.

      If I do nothing and wait the connection times out and returns to the TV program. The TV is obviously waiting for permission to connect.

      I cannot see any way to 'accept' the connection via the TV remote. Can anyone tell me how to accept the connection?
      In addition, is it possible to have the TV remember the WiFi password? Passwords are complex nowadays and it is a pain to keep having to input it. This make casting your desktop a chore.

      Hi.. I have recently purchased LG 43LQ60006LA and its having normal remote. Will the magic remote works for this TV, if YES what would be the model to be purchased.

      thanks

      My magic remote and my Roku remote stopped working for turning off power so I performed a factory reset after troubleshooting to get the remote working.  I am now stuck at the 1st screen of the Factory Reset which says "Press the OK Button(wheel) on your remote."  Well... this really stinks because the remote doesn't work!!!  I have tried a USB mouse, a new magic remote, other LG Remotes with no luck.  I have also tried using the button on the bottom of the tv.  And, I contacted support which was just an exercise in redoing everything I had already tried... No Luck!!
      This is a Nano Cell 55NANO81ANA which is basically just a big brick now since I cannot even use any of the inputs.  Does anyone have a trick for getting past this initial screen???
      Thanks for the help.

      The specs for the magic remote promise "Voice Recognition with Intuitive Mouse Like Pointing and Wheel Control". I think that would be nice. The current implementation of scrolling via the wheel on the magic remote is not intuitive. Why would I move my thumb up to pull the text shown on the screen down to the bottom?
      Question is, can we please get natural scrolling for WebOS 5.5.0 and newer? Some option in the settings would be fine. The current "unnatural" scrolling is a major obstacle in usability for me, and the main reason to not buy LG again.
