Using a LG Magic Universal remote with my z906 surround system

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

First, there are no people working for LG here. This is a user to user forum as it says on the top of the page.

But maybe it is possible to configure the Logitech system to work with the LG Remote.

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?

 

De un nuevo comprador bastante decepcionado del LG OLED55C8 

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 Youtube app has been working fine until Friday 27th November.  Switched on as I do every day to see news, and have video but no sound. Did the usual switch off, unplug etc but still no sound Other apps work fine.
       I noticed there was an update to this app dated 22/11/2020 but my issue only started later. Have automatic updates "on".  Is this a buggy update?

      I recently updated the firmware on my  LG43UH610V.  Now I constantly get "Wired Lan cable disconnected" / "Wired network is connected" messages even while watching a video file from my NAS. The TV is connected and using the network while getting these messages. It has always been on a fixed IP address on the LAN.

      Hi all - just purchased a new OLED48CX6LB and looking to use the magic remote to control my sky plus box.   I’ve managed to figure out most controls with the exception of being able to set a programme to record from the planner (the equivalent of pressing R on the sky remote)
      is there any way to do this ?
      thanks in advance for any help

      Is this reported ?
      The Remote ceases to - Mute & control sound volume, following any use of "Quick access" (long press on numbers)
      Power off the TV - Power back on, returns function until "Quick access" is used again.

      If anyone is still experiencing issues with the webOS Disney+ app (and I suspect many if not all of us still are) such as the lack of 4K support, 5.1 audio support, or as in my case with the 86UH9500, both, please see LG's response to my inquiry into these issues:
      We appreciate you for patiently coordinating with us regarding the current application status of your LG 86UH9500 TV, Xxxxxxx. It is our goal to ensure that you are able to utilize your LG product at its fullest potential so let us assist you with your inquiry today.

      In response to this, according to the specifications of the unit, the LG 86UH9500 TV has been designed with a 4K UHD and Surround Mode feature. However, if the Disney+ app is the only application that does not output surround sound, please be advised that both the content being played on the TV and the applications should also support this feature as well. This case on the capability and support made by the developers of the Disney+ Application needs to be raised directly to them so that they can make the necessary updates on the programming and utilize our TV’s 4K UHD and Surround Sound features that are already available in our OLED Television. You can reach Disney+ Support Line at 1-888-905-7888 for additional support and assistance.
      So, as expected, LG is pointing the finger at Disney to resolve these issues.  This makes sense as my inquires into the availability of the Disney+ app from LG before the launch directed me to reach out to Disney+ as they, not LG, are responsible for it. 
      So if any of you out there have Bob Iger on speed dial, can you give him a ring?
      Thanks!
      (PS yes, LG incorrectly identified the UH9500 as an OLED model when its an LCD, but I'll let it slide)
