I have the 2016 LG OLED65E6P purchased 2/19/2017 with the "magic remote" and recently, the remote control has become unreliable. It worked perfectly until a few weeks ago and I'm not sure what changed. The remote seems to work properly when the TV is first turned on, but later, I have to press a button repeatedly to get any effect. It's not bad buttons, it's like the buttons only send the signal to the TV intermittently. The red light at the top of the remote sometimes flashes red, sometimes goes solid red for a few seconds, and sometimes does nothing when I press the button (I couldn't find a description of what the light does). It's very frustrating.
I mostly make due by repeatedly pressing the button that turns on the teardrop cursor -- after maybe 10 times it'll come on, and then I can use the cursor to operate the TV until it times out. So that works, but it's not a good solution because it's hard to get the cursor turned on.
I put in fresh batteries several times to see if that's the problem -- it made no difference. Plus the cursor works fine, when I can get it turned on.
I was also hopeful that a firmware update caused this problem and it will be resolved.
The remote doesn't seem to require line-of-sight to work. Does the remote use bluetooth or WiFi? I sometimes use Bluetooth headphones with the TV and those work fine.
Has anyone else had this problem with the remote -- and if so, how did you solve it?
(I do have an extended warranty so in theory I can get a replacement remote -- but I'd rather not spend an hour on the phone if this is a common problem.)
I have just got a new OLED B7 TV and would like to know if I can use my old USB HD that I was using with my old LED LG TV that was using the LG time machine 2.
When I plug the USB HD into the new B7 TV it says I need to format it. I see the new TV's need a NTFS drive and on the old LED TV it was using a linux system. Is all lost are any way to view the old data on the new OLED TV ?

I've been having an issue for a couple months now where Hulu no longer shows when a series has a new episode available or not via the badge icon that USED to be in the top right corner of the show thumbnail and would say "1 Unwatched" or "4 Unwatched" etc., if I navigate inside of that TV show then I can scroll to the end of the list to see what's new or not, but it's tedious vs. the overview screen just having a correctly functioning badge there. Is anyone else experiencing this or does it show up for others still?
I'm on WebOS 2 with the 65OLED 2015 model LG 65EF9500. I have uninstalled and reinstalled the App, logged out and back in, and currently, have a Hulu Plus subscription. The only thing I haven't tried is someone else's Hulu account on the TV.
That being said if I use any iOS device or on the Computer it correctly shows the badges!
Lastly, give us Profiles access already >.<
