Using a LG Magic Universal remote with my z906 surround system


Alexander Olsson

Question

Hi,

I just Bought the LG OLED55C8 with its Universal "Magic Remote" that

should be able to control the sound settings in my accompanying(i bought it for the tv separately ofc, but was told it was compatible with all major sound system brands) LOGITECH z906 sound system.

I'm using a Optical cable from my z906 and in the  OLED55C8 TV settings you can choose about 30 of all the biggest sound manufacturers to link the remote to.

 

To my surprise and disappointment Logitech was not one of them. Is it possible

to choose any of all the other BIG NAMES IN SOUND, besides Logitech so i can

use just the one remote, or will i have to suffer the switching between remotes

all the f-ing time?

 

If it cannot be done, can you, LG, please contact Logitech to get some Firmware over to LGs WebOS system so i can use my z906 as intended?

 

From A rather disappointed new purchaser of the LG OLED55C8

Hola,

Acabo de comprar el LG OLED55C8 con su "Magic Remote" universal que

debería poder controlar la configuración de sonido en mi acompañante (lo compré para la televisión por separado, pero me dijeron que era compatible con todas las principales marcas de sistemas de sonido) Sistema de sonido LOGITECH z906.

Estoy usando un cable óptico de mi z906 y en la configuración de TV OLED55C8 puede elegir entre 30 de los mayores fabricantes de sonido para vincular el control remoto.

 

Para mi sorpresa y decepción, Logitech no era uno de ellos. Es posible

para elegir cualquiera de los otros GRANDES NOMBRES EN SONIDO, además de Logitech para poder

use solo un control remoto, o tendré que sufrir el cambio entre controles remotos

todo el tiempo?

 

Si no se puede hacer, ¿puede usted, LG, ponerse en contacto con Logitech para transferir el firmware al sistema WebOS de LG para que pueda usar mi z906 según lo previsto?

Hola, has resuelto el problema con el Z906? Tengo el mismo problema

I have a LG TV with magic remote and a set top box for the tv stations. What I did was two things:

I configured the LG TV that I had a set top box. For this you had to vind the manufacturer of the set top box (which was difficult to find). No I can use the remote to control the set top box a bit. I can change channels with the scroll wheel and some other functions. It does its best but is not great.

But I could also use the remote from the set top box to change the volume of the TV and turn on/off the TV. This solution is much better for me.

Just like configuring the LG TV for an other device, maybe it is possible for the Logitech system to add an other remote.

Hi guys, 

same here. Just bought 65UM7100PLA, ordered the magic remote separately. Set-top-box works fine. Now I would like to control the Z906 with it if possible (unfortunately the original remote of the Logitech is damaged at the volume + sign, so I have to jump out of the bed to raise the volume).  Alexander, could you solve it somehow?

      The specs for the magic remote promise "Voice Recognition with Intuitive Mouse Like Pointing and Wheel Control". I think that would be nice. The current implementation of scrolling via the wheel on the magic remote is not intuitive. Why would I move my thumb up to pull the text shown on the screen down to the bottom?
      Question is, can we please get natural scrolling for WebOS 5.5.0 and newer? Some option in the settings would be fine. The current "unnatural" scrolling is a major obstacle in usability for me, and the main reason to not buy LG again.

      II hope in a future update we are given the option to disable the annoying pointer on the Magic Remote.

      When using the Fubo app with my magic remote the app goes wildly crazy as I move the remote around. If I do not press the center button to activate the pointer navigation works using left right up down .

      Guided by the unwavering conviction that a good life means enjoying every precious moment to the fullest, LG aims to create innovations for a better life while working with brave optimism to ensure Life’s Good for everyone, no matter where they live.

      In line with World Happiness Day – celebrated annually on March 20 – LG Germany and influencer Gina Rühl paid a special visit to DAS HAUS in Neuss, spending the afternoon with children suffering from physical and mental disabilities. True to the motto ‘Happiness doubles when you share it,’ this project not only aims to put a smile on the faces of countless children, but also demonstrate the immense impact of technical helpers on the daily lives of those that need a little help.

      Gina is a living example of relentless optimism and the ability to turn setbacks into strengths. After a serious motorcycle accident that resulted in the loss of her left arm, she never lost her positive attitude and fought her way back to treat every day like a blessing: “Life goes on, just a little differently.” She quickly regained her mental strength and is now grateful for every experience, demonstrating that life can still be full of joy after a life-changing incident.

      That is why Gina was the perfect role model to visit DAS HAUS, a facility that aims to enable children and adolescents to live a fulfilling life on their own terms despite their disabilities. This inclusive facility offers a wide range of music, art, sports and theater courses to help them develop skills and socialize at the same time. DAS HAUS encourages them to push a little further every day and manage their lives actively and responsibly – a message both LG and Gina live by.

      The focus of the event was on the joy of cooking together. As they cooked as a team, LG StanbyME provided assistance by displaying cooking tutorials and entertainment. In fact, it proved to be so useful that LG donated two of them to DAS HAUS soon after. The contact was made through nestwärme e.V., an association that supports families with chronically or terminally ill children and children with disabilities. As a token of gratitude, LG also donated an LG StanbyME to a children’s hospice of nestwärme e.V.’s choice. But the generosity did not stop there, as LG and Gina raffled off five devices to social clubs and organizations through Instagram.

      The efforts of Gina Rühl and LG on World Happiness Day highlight technology’s potential to go beyond its primary purpose – it connects people and inspires new possibilities. This project underlines the company’s commitment to effecting positive change not only on special occasions but every day, in line with its Life’s Good message.

      In Argentina, the love of cooking, which transcends borders, was again leveraged to spread positive change. LG Argentina employees volunteered their time to the Fundación Sí, a non-profit organization dedicated to eradicating poverty by enhancing the quality of life and social inclusion of the less fortunate. Volunteers are recruited to offer housing and financial aid to underprivileged graduates to increase their access to education, and perform nightly trips to give the homeless food, medical attention and emotional support.

      Last month, LG Argentina employees convened in the kitchen to bake bread for the homeless and give hope of a future where Life’s Good.

      This baking event was just one of the many activities that took place in partnership with Fundación Sí. Another important action was the sponsorship of four high-achieving local university students which will support their development going forward and help them achieve their professional aspirations.
      LG offices around the world are committed to creating a Better Life for All, not only through its advanced products and solutions but also through its social initiatives. Stay tuned to LG Newsroom to discover more initiatives designed to realize a future where Life’s Good for people and the planet.

      Hey everyone,
      I'm new here, so first of all, hello I'm delos.
      I own two LG OLED55G19 TVs, one at home and one elsewhere. At home, I have a QNAP NAS (TS451) with DLNA functionality. Accessing it at home works great.
      The "Home" and "External" networks are connected via VPN. Thus, both networks have different network addresses.
      Now I want to access the home network from the external network with the LG via VPN in order to integrate the DLNA server. The LG doesn't "see" the external server because it's not in the same network. However, I wonder why you can't just enter the IP address of the server in the LG.
      Does anyone have a solution?
       
      Many greetings
      delos
