Question

I have been thinking would it be possible to make a HDMI switch that connects to the TV (maybe via USB to control it), the TV knows it's a switch and add virtual HDMI's and by selecting one of the virtual HDMI's is tell the switch to select the correct port.

      I own OLED55C9 TV.
      I use Apple TV 4K with the TV. I enabled HDMI-CEC option in settings to be able to turn on my TV when my Apple TV is also turned on.
      But I would like to have also ability to turn TV off when Apple TV is turned off. Now I cannot do this (at least with webOS version 04.71.05).
      It will be awesome for me because in this case I don't even need to find LG TV remote. I need to use just build in Apple TV app on my iPhone which is very simple and useful.
      I use my LG TV only with Apple TV box. I don't like using build in TV's apps because LG remote has a lot of buttons and it is not as simple and useful... So Apple TV clear winner for me in terms of usability. 
      Please add ability to turn TV off (via HDMI-CEC) when TV box is go sleep/turned off.
      BTW, turn off feature works perfectly fine with Samsung TVs.

      hi, Friends,

      i have finally fixed the HDMI ARC issue.
      Apparently some people also had the same issue and couldnt figure out whats wrong.
      After reading through AVSForums, I finally understood that LG had a bug in HDMI operation as well..

      The problem happens when your TV is already sending sound through HDMI ARC to a AVR and you try to connect additional sources like dth or blueray player to additional HDMI ports of TV and AVR. Once you add additional sources, you might try to use LG's device connector setting to control the device and this is where HDMI ARC stops working.

      Solution:
      disconnect all hdmi ports of TV and AVR.
      Full reset TV and AVR.
      Only Connect HDMI ARC port of TV with HDMI ARC OUT of AVR. Enable ARC feature on both TV and AVR. Open LG TV internal app,
      and check if sound is coming properly to AVR.
      Now you Connect All additional sources to other HDMI ports of TV and nothing should be connected to AVR.
      You may use LG device connector setting to configure the magic remote to control them.

      MY current setup of TV:
      HDMI 1: Airtel DTH.
      HDMI 2: ARC connected to Denon AVR 1500H.
      HDMI 3: ACT Television(Using this to play hotstar premium content as LG inbuilt APP is not playing it)

      Good news:
      LG magic remote can control all 3 devices seamlessly and thats a great ease for customers.
      I shall appreciate LG for this.

      Have a LG TV 32LB650V which is updated to the latest firmware here in Sweden (05.05.01) and an Apple TV Gen4 (also updated to latest) connected to the HDMI ports. I used to use Simplink (HDMI-CEC) so that waking up the Apple TV would also wake up the TV. This worked well. Since some time ago, this does not always work. If I sleep the Apple TV, it shuts of the TV, but waking up the Apple TV wakes the TV maybe half of the times even though I follow the same procedure. Anyone experience the same thing or does your Simplink implementation works flawless every time?
       
      What I've tried so far:
      - Switching Simplink on and off
      - Resetting the TV to factory default
      - Switching HDMI inputs

      When I turn on a HDMI device and it wakes up my TV, the TV just… wakes up on the HDMI input used before it sleeps/turns off.
      I have then to manually change the input to the HDMI input/device I want to use - the one I used to wakes the TV up 😕  It's really annoying

      Hi
      I cant find Amazon Prime App for my LG TV 49LH576T  in LG Content Store. Is there any alternative  way to install this app on my tv?
    • By SimonHayterUK
      So, it's the year 2018 and all the documentation I have found online says that LG TV's USB storage are limited to a max capacity of 2TB... nowadays that's considered rather small in terms of PVR and play backing of HDR 10bit content.
      I've ordered a the LG 49sj800v which is due to be delivered in the next couple of weeks so I am in the process of preparing the hard drive ready for it, which I have a WD Red 6TB however after reading it seems to be limited to 2TB?! which surprises me because the TV even has a USB 3.0 port.
      It is from my understanding that FAT32 is limited to 2TB and NTFS is limited to 16TB which brings me to my question(s):
       Does the 2TB limitation still apply in WebOS 3.5? if the limitation does still apply is the limitation caused by Hardware or Software? If the limiation does still apply can you use multiple partitions or is the limitation  the entire drive?  
      PS. I plan to use NTFS.
