It would be amazing to be able to use the Philips HUE and synchronize the lights with the video and audio of the LG TV. Thanks

YES. PLEASE ADD THIS!

I can currently do "free" or non-DRM content using Hue Sync from a PC but it would be a HUGE feature to add this natively to WebOS. Application needs to send information about the displayed colors on a given area of the screen to the Hue Bridge over WiFi link. Hue Bridge would then tell the Hue Lights how and when to change color values. 

As there is no way to output video from the TV, the content providers should not have any DRM concerns. This would be the absolute cleanest solution and at least in the US market and would funnel so many buyers towards LG units. 

Summary of wish:

  • Feature to be added to the "all settings" menu somewhere under display
  • Selection enables the TV to run Hue Sync software
  • TV then connects to the Hue Bridge on customer premises
  • Whatever content is displayed on the TV screen from whatever source (streaming, cable box, etc.) is analyzed by Hue Sync software for color/placement information
  • TV sends color and screen area information in real time to Hue Bridge
  • Hue Bridge tells Hue Lights the appropriate color adjustments to make

Check it out in action:

Would it be possible to get some kind of low-resolution image of the current output of the TV?
I.e. a picture of 16 x 9 pixels with the correct averages would be more than enough to build a DIY ambient light.

PS: I do understand that outputting the image is not possible with the DRM in place. But a downscaled version may be possible?

Or LG could just ignore this feature and wonder why their sales drop when competition releases this feature. That is not a very easy to implement feature and the first non-Phillips TV producer that does that will have a clear marketing advantage.

I think this couldn't possible cause on the Philips TVs don't use a software to do this feature, but only WiFi enlaced with the HUE bridge and iOS App.

And it's only works in selecteds Philips Ambilight TV models. I have an Philips Ambilght 42 5000 series and works fine with HUE bridge from first and second generation, and would be very good working with my LG Oled 55B7P too.

But, how I told before, I believe it's not possible.

I hope my information can will be usefull.

      Hi, 
       
      I was tying to change the settings on our LG TV to enable it for HD channel reception. We found instructions on the net to configure the "area option" in the hidden menu, however, they did not work. So, we thought that we need to change the country group to be able to receive the HD channels. Although we could not change the "country group code" from 20 to an arbitrary number, we change it to 10. After that, we have not been able to change it anymore. It is struck there. I know this is ridiculous, but an LG TV expert who is working in LG customer services told us that I could not change it either and we need to replace the IC. I shocked why with a simple change in one of the TV parameters, everything is got complicated. 
       
      In details, here is the picture of the parameters currently set on the LG TV with the model number of 49LH549V-TD: 
       

       
      Please tell me why I could not set the "country group code" to 20 once again? It is gray meaning that is unchangeable. Any ideas will be appreciated.
       
      Best regards

      I have a couple of LG OLEDs in shared spaces, with external speakers, one via optical and the other via analog jack (confusingly named headphones). Whenever bluetooth headphones are used and then disconnected, the TV reverts to "internal" terrible audio. For non-technical people this is permanent. Do I have to train everyone to select the device from the long list or can I set a default?

      Please, pretty please, make it possibile to listen at the same time through HDMI ARC and some other output that can feed an headphone.
      I have a wireless headphones system that has got both an analog and a digital optical input, yet I am forced to choose headphones or HDMI ARC, but not both.
      There is the option [Wired headphones + Internal speakers], but why should I prefer internal speakers over my 5.1 surround audio system?
      Ideally the audio output menu should be a checklist rather than a list of radio buttons.

      I'm not getting any audio from the apps via the HDMI via ARC connection to my receiver.  This occurred two weeks ago and was unable to resolve it, but ironically there was new firmware released that same day for my B6 (3/31/17) and this fixed the issue.  However, now I again can't get it working after a TV reset and tinkering with the audio settings again.  I tried to load the firmware again, but it appears this is not possible to forceable load the same firmware.

      After updating to the latest web browser with new UI, closed caption subtitles on ALL websites video including Youtube.com disappears every 2-3mins. Video continues to play without subs and subs will re-appear if I move the magic remote but disappears again after 3mins.
