Sorry but your question makes NO SENSE and is impossible to answer.

The REMOTE control DOES NOT USE WIFI OR ETHERNET, it uses RF direct from the remote to the TV.

So you were able to ask the TV, via the remote control, to download something from the internet, remember simply making the request DOES NOT REQUIRE ANY NETWORK INTERACTION. However the TV now needs a network connection in order to get the APP from the Internet.

Now that connection can be WiFi or Ethernet.

Are you sure that the TV uses Blue tooth to connect to its remote control, it is more usual to use Infra Red, which your phone probably does not have.

You have to construct your questions in a more concise manner, otherwise anyone trying to help you is simply GUESSING at what you are talking about.

For instance you use the phrase "one TV's button" DUH?

I have left my remote contol at home.

I have only one TV button interface. You make to change program channel, Up/Down volume and Power off.

You cannot launch applications using one button interface.

      My magic remote and my Roku remote stopped working for turning off power so I performed a factory reset after troubleshooting to get the remote working.  I am now stuck at the 1st screen of the Factory Reset which says "Press the OK Button(wheel) on your remote."  Well... this really stinks because the remote doesn't work!!!  I have tried a USB mouse, a new magic remote, other LG Remotes with no luck.  I have also tried using the button on the bottom of the tv.  And, I contacted support which was just an exercise in redoing everything I had already tried... No Luck!!
      This is a Nano Cell 55NANO81ANA which is basically just a big brick now since I cannot even use any of the inputs.  Does anyone have a trick for getting past this initial screen???
      Thanks for the help.

      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.
      VERY ANNOYING!!!!!!!!!!

      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 .

      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
