Using headphones and TV speakers at same time


Symbiodin

Question

I have an LG OLED55C6P TV. Because of hearing difficulties, I generally use bluetooth headphones when watching the TV.  As far as I have been able to determine, there appears to be no way to use the headphones and also have the TV speakers working at the same time. This means that if I'm watching TV, no one else can watch and listen unless they have headphones.  Am I missing something?  Is there a way to have the headphones and TV speakers working at the same time?

On our TV, Settings | All Settings | Sound | Sound out, there is an option at the bottom of the list to select "Internal TV Speaker + Wired Headphones. This also lets us connect an external speaker and hear its audio in addition to the TV sound.

WebOS Software version 04.70.85.

I do not have this model of TV, but you may look for an option in accessibility submenu that allows multiple audio output. For example, newer Samsung TVs have an option that allows to use both internal speakers and Bluetooth headphones at the same time:

If you wish to use bluetooth headphones and the internal speakers then you need to do the following.

First pair the bluetooth headset to ensure the TV has it listed in its available devices

         Press and hold cog button on remote for 5 Sec

         Select Sound

          Select Sound Out

         Scroll down to Bluetooth and select the "Device list" on the right

         If not already searching press the search button

         Switch on your bluetooth headset in pairing mode.

         Select your device when it pops up. 

Go to the Sound configuration menue

Scroll down to  "Bluetooth Surroundsound + Internal TV Speakers"

Click on the device list on the right

Select your bluetooth headset.

Exit from the screen

I have Bose Bluetooth headphones which I have been able to connect wirelessly with my LG tv. My problem is with volume control. I can only adjust the volume using the the remote. The buttons on the headphones do nothing. The tv remote adjusts both the headphones and internal tv speakers simultaneously so that a comfortable level on the tv is too quiet and a louder volume on the headphones is too loud for the tv. Is there a way to adjust the volume on the two devices independently of one another?

I have set up two sets of headphones on my LG tv. Both are functional but not at the same time. Is it possible for two sets of wireless headphones to be used simultaneously?

Yes this can be achieved but you would need to purchase an external Bluetooth Adapter that supports this function. Amazon sell a few and they are reasonably inexpensive.

I have tried this, although possibly not in quite the same order. 

I select "Bluetooth + TV Speaker" in the sound output setting but as soon as I connect the headphones, the TV speaker goes off. 

The sound out setting changes to Bluetooth, rather than "Bluetooth + TV Speaker" as soon as I allow the headphones to connect to the TV.

What you said it's exactly what's happening to me. Did you ever find a solution? Thanks!

I own an LG CX (2021) and it is impossible to hear from earphones (wired or bluetooth) and HDMI ARC (the soundbar) at the same time.

I am appalled of this stupid limitation.
Apparently LG chose to use a checklist of predetermined output combinations instead of independent radio buttons.
My old Samsung TV was able to enable/disable any audio output independently.

Unfortunately the support folks are not over interested in reporting a suggestion to the developers.

I have the same issue.  On an older tv and once on the LG I had tv audio and bluetooth audio working simultaneously using a MEE audio Connect T1CMA headphone + transmitter w/optical audio input. Both audio output volumes could be adjusted independently via tv remote  and headphones.  A month later the bluetooth connection to the transmitter mysteriously began disconnecting for no apparent reason. Has never worked since.  I am very disappointed in this audio setup.

I have an LG45a16 OLED smart tv. I've discovered how to set the wired headphone and tv volume independently. Being of advanced years my wife watches with Tv speakers and I listen with wired headphones. The TV sound has a setting "wired headphones +tvspeakers", but you can't adjust the volume on the headphones independently. The trick is to select "wired headphones" only and adjust the volume using the remote to suit. Then go back to "wired headphones +tv speakers" and the headphones will now be at the volume you selected in "wired headphones" The TV speaker volume  can now be adjusted with the remote without affecting the headphones. Also muting the TV speakers doesn't affect the headphones, so I can now watch sport without upsetting my wife! Bit of a complex workaround, but it does the job.

      Hi, I'm curious if anyone else is seeing this annoying new behaviour.
      I have my SKY Q box on HDMI1 and have become accustomed to switching back from Netflix (or any other app for that matter) by having HDMI1 assigned to button "1" using the Quick Access feature.  In the last week though, this feature has stopped working properly. If I am in Netflix and I press the "1" button, nothing happens (as expected). If instead I hold down the "1" button to switch to SKY I get a pop up that says this: "Do you want to add Netflix to [Quick Access 1]?".   If I then hold down the "0" button, the 3x3 grid "EDIT QUICK ACCESS" pop-up appears and I can clearly see my SKY Q/HDMI 1 in the top left grid position (button "1")!!!
      If I then switch via the Home button to HDMI1 and remove HDMI1 from Quick Access (via the  EDIT QUICK ACCESS pop up), I can then re-add it by holding down 1 or from within the pop-up. Now, if I go into Netflix and then hold down 1, my TV does (correctly) switch to HDMI1. Hurrah! If however I turn my TV off and back on, then go to Netflix, then hold down "1", I am back to square one with the question "Do you want to add Netwflix to [Quick Access 1]?"......Grrrr!!!
      I have tried switching the TV off at the wall, leaving for 10 seconds and repowering, which doesn't fix the problem (I don't believe WebOS reboots when you do this). LG appear to have made it a practical impossibility to reboot WebOS via anything other than a factory reset which I don't really want to do as it'll take me too long to get all my settings back to where I have them now. Some blogs suggest that the "User Licence agreement" setting can be changed which forces a reset from within the General tab but I don't see this on my TV (guessing that WebOS interface has changed).
      Anyone have any ideas?

      Company’s Eye-Catching Solutions Showcase Next-Level Imagery as Well as
      Added Convenience That Makes People’s Day-to-day Business Run Smoothly

      SEOUL, May 10, 2022 — LG Electronics (LG) is showcasing its ground-breaking information display technology at Integrated Systems Europe (ISE) 2022, Barcelona, as anticipation grows after its two-year hiatus. At this year’s ISE, LG is promoting its Move Daily Life Forward theme which builds on the company’s Innovation for a Better Life slogan. Ranging from Transparent OLED Signage, Micro LED to full lineups of LED signage products, LG will be showcasing its latest business offerings which combine digital signage solutions with useful application tools to elevate post-pandemic communications and move us a step closer to life without limits.
      With people spending more time at home, activities typically undertaken outside are now taking place in the comfort of home. Consumers are now going online to work (WFH), take classes, attend doctor appointments and carry out hobbies at home. In line with this trend, LG is showcasing LG MAGNIT and LG One:Quick Flex which leverage the company’s commercial display expertise to create next-gen home displays.
      LG MAGNIT, which has already infiltrated several commercial areas since its 2020 debut, is now setting its sights on redefining the premium home cinema by providing a next-level viewing experience, aesthetically-pleasing design and gigantic 136-inch 4K UHD (3,840 x 2,160) screen. The jaw-dropping picture quality created by its several million self-emissive LED pixels lets people enjoy their favorite movies, TV shows, sports events and artwork in privacy at home. And to make watching content easier and more enjoyable, several popular streaming apps are accessible via LG’s webOS 6.0 smart TV platform. Additionally, when paired with Bang & Olufsen’s flagship Beolab 90 home speaker, LG MAGNIT delivers an even more immersive home cinema experience.
      The One:Quick Flex is another innovative solution transforming home entertainment. The all-in-one display combines a built-in microphone, camera and speakers with a 43-inch 4K UHD (3,840 x 2,160) screen and optional movable stand. With its simple touch-based setup and user-friendly Windows OS, it is not only suitable for WFH, but for distance learning, video conferencing, remote training and entertainment as well. In addition, the larger 55-inch One:Quick Works, which combines built-in touch capabilities with intuitive video conferencing tools, is popular in educational and corporate environments, since its easy UX and added convenience let multiple users instantly connect and dive right into work or lesson plans.
      On the other end of the spectrum, high-end executive offices are placing Transparent OLED on glass walls to create bright and futuristic imaging and useful meeting tools. Transparent OLED is also being utilized in the transportation sector as advertising or information displays on station windows. It has even made its way into museums, greeting visitors at the door and overlaying objects with context for a more extraordinary experience. Transparent OLED Touch has also gained popularity as interactive displays.
      The Technology and Engineering Award-winning 65-inch UltraFine Display OLED Pro was built with studio professionals in mind. It supports pro-grade interfaces, such as SDI and SFP, and can render the source’s original, high-quality resolution without scaling down. What’s more, for colorists spending countless hours behind a screen, the UltraFine Display OLED Pro meets Eyesafe Standards and helps protect their eyes from blue light. LG UltraFine OLED Pro can be used in post-production companies as well as OTT companies when screening.
      LG is also exhibiting several innovations centered around mission critical environments. Fine-pitch LED’s high definition and bezel-less design displays every fine detail clearly, while the bezel-less 54-inch LED Bloc allows customers to use it like a 55-inch LCD video wall display with easy installation – it even fits the brackets of existing LCD video wall models.* These features have made them useful in corporate control rooms, auditoriums and virtual classrooms.
      In retail, LG’s Content Management Solution, SuperSign QSR, delivers customers a dynamic menu board while behind the scenes it streamlines the kitchen display system and integrates with the PoS system. Another featured product for outdoor customer interactions is the 21.5-inch high brightness touch display. Whether it’s at a drive-thru kiosk, gas pump or EV charger, this durable signage is useful as it stands up to harsh weather conditions and dust with a brightness that makes information easy to read.
      Amidst all the cross-sector synergy, LG is also presenting cloud solutions specifically designed for specific industries or use cases. For example, Pro:Centric Cloud has been engineered to transform hospitality management by taking Pro:Centric, LG’s flexible and intuitive content management system for hospitality, and expanding it across multiple properties via cloud-based architecture. Now, hotels can offer personalized services, maintain consistent imaging and collect behavioral data across multiple branches, all centralized in one place.
      “At this year’s ISE, we are excited to demonstrate the life-enhancing solutions that have been developed to change people’s lives for the better. Our sharp and seamless imagery stands out, especially in a crowded setting like this, and what’s more our vertical solutions are creating new possibilities,” said Paik Ki-mun, senior vice president and head of the Information Display business unit of LG Electronics Business Solutions Company. “We’re finding new ways to make it easier to make a positive impact, no matter the field.”
      These revolutionary business solutions will be on display in Hall 3 of Fira Barcelona’s Gran Via from May 10-13. For those unable to attend, LG has a dedicated ISE page at which includes videos of the zones and content to be added live during the event.

      The future of mobility is just around the corner, with vehicle electrification underway and fully autonomous vehicles getting closer by the day. For some, it may come as a surprise to learn that LG Electronics develops and manufactures many of the core components and technologies now reshaping the automotive experience. In a relatively short space of time, the company has become a major player in the vehicle component business and is doing all that it can to accelerate the arrival of mobility’s exciting future.

      A perfect example of this is the infotainment (or IVI, a portmanteau of information and entertainment) system LG jointly developed with German luxury car brand, Mercedes-Benz. Featured in the , LG’s IVI replaces the conventional mix of a few, small displays and physical knob and buttons with a wide expanse of vibrant, responsive touch-screens offering easy access to a variety of helpful car and on-road information and top-notch entertainment options.

      In addition to the LG Vehicle component Solutions (VS) Company, which is the official name of LG’s dedicated vehicle parts business, a number of companies from across the LG Group are actively engaged in driving auto innovation forward. LG Innotek and LG Display work collaboratively to produce telematics and driver assistance systems, as well as IVI systems, while LG Energy Solution and LG Innotek have joined forces to deliver battery packs, battery cells and charging communication controllers. Advanced vehicle headlamps and rear lights are provided through ZKW Group, acquired by LG in 2018, and driving units – including motors, inverters and in-vehicle chargers – are being developed by LG Magna e-Powertrain and LG Innotek.

      Primarily known as a leading consumer electronics maker, LG recognized early on that its broad range of core competencies – including innovative home appliances and home entertainment technologies – would enable it to compete in the emerging autonomous driving and electric vehicle markets. Its vast experience and know-how in diverse product and tech fields have given LG a strong advantage in the wider future mobility sector, and allowed it to meet rising demand from global automakers.

      Despite being in the components business for less than a decade, LG has already earned the trust and respect of many of the auto industry’s top players. Its state-of-the-art vehicle solutions, including sleek and ultra-intuitive IVI systems, can now be found in the latest premium models from the likes of Renault, Cadillac and Jaguar Land Rover.
