Some questions about webos/magic remote from new user


Recommended Posts

Hi!

I just bought a 55" OLED tv from LG called B6V. Picture quality is stunning with 4k content and regular SD broadcast is well... crap. Just like expected. I have a few questions regarding some odd things I noticed when playing for a few hours with it.

 

1) When I am in youtube  and press the "guide" button on the remote, nothing happens. Surely this is a bug since webos is a multitasking OS, and they made a big marketing thing about switching between apps. I expect youtube to pause and tv guide app to launch, but nothing happens.

 

2) Do I have different picture mode for different apps? I noticed I changed picture mode when watching tv, and then when watching youtube, the picture mode had changed?

 

3) The tv is HDR compatible, but does it not recognize this atumatically by content? I mean, if my wife watches some HDR and forget to set picture mode to HDR she loses the whole experience. Feels wierd.

 

4) How do I enable automatic timeshift? I want the tv to record constantly whatever I am watching. Can I set the buffer size somewhere?

 

5) Is there another way besides shaking the remote to summon the arrow? I have to shake REALLY hard for it to appear, and after a while my arm got tired.

 

We really love this tv set, huge improvement from our old samsung 50" plasma with HD Ready, LOL. Webos is a joy, but I do wish they reduced the overall font size, because things feel too big in the tv guide for example, it is very tight with no margin between anything. The UI need some "air" between stuff. Maybe I can change this somewhere? My wife also felt "hey why is the text so big everywhere".

 

/Cheers

      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.

      New OLED C3. New setup and I can’t change channels using tv magic remote- I have to use set top box remote. Verified setup with LG tech today and it is correct. Upon him checking for solutions he said there is a software bug that is not allowing the magic remote to change channels. Stated a fix is in works but doesn’t know when it will be available. Asked for a supervisor and was told one would call back in a few hours but they didn’t. I can return the tv now but was wondering if others are having this issue and for how long. I don’t want to get stuck with a tv with multiple remotes.

      Hi all, I am trying to find a solution to the native but complex "magic" remote control from LG. For elder or young people, this magic remote control with the OLED C3 TV is too complex or too busy (using a lot of unused keys. The new model for remote control is now either the Apple TV RC, the Android TV RC or the Google TV remote control. All these RC are small, easy to use with only 10 to 15 keys instead of the 40 to 50 keys. I saw that. in the past LG introduced smaller remote control (see below the first image LG AN-MR500) but I am not sure it is supported with the LG OLED C3. I also saw that the latest projector CineBeam Q comes with a small new RC (see bellow). This new white RC has only the necessary keys (max 10) and seems to be fine ! Also, the new C4 is coming seoon and I suppose it will include a new Remote Control but we don't know yet what it is ... Do you have an idea to solve my issue ?
