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

      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

      I really don't want the TV beaming me with 2.4ghz radiation all the time. I don't understand why you didn't put an option in the settings that BT can be turned off to only use the IC remote control. Is there a way to get into the hidden codes and turn BT off there? TV model is "NANO793NE".
      Thank's.

      Hi. 
      I have the phone listed above and am not able to connect to my LG TV. 
      Anyone else in the house can but not me!! 😡 
      What is wrong with Samsung and LG? 
      I keep getting the same message when I try to connect : unable to connect to screen share. Try again.
      This is driving me nuts! 
      Anyone has a fix for this? 
      Ps: I have tried tons of sharing apps, disconnected all connected devices, phone and TV with latest updates, tried WiFi, WiFi direct, Bluetooth (all separately and together). 
      I'm running out of options and patience. Thanks for the help.

      When will the 4.0 update be available for my 2016-17 LG Smart TV?  I just got Alexa and can't use it for the TV unless it has the 4.0 version.  Model #70UH6350-UB.
