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.
TV: 2017 model 49UJ6500
When you reset the A/V (mute button 3 times), you see the default for non-HDR is "Auto" and default
for HDR is "off". When you switch back and forth between HDR and non-HDR this energy saving setting is
I quite like "Auto" for regular material (non-HDR) it does a good job. On the other hand,
the setting of "Off" for HDR is terrible, especially with Amazon Prime. The bright highlights are too bright
and the dark shadow area's are a murky grey. Cannot really compensate with backlight, contrast
or brighness adjustments, it's ineffective for this problem. However, to compensate for this TV's mediocre
contrast range (very obvious in HDR), you can set HDR Energy Saving to minimum or medium and you can make it watchable
The problem is, as soon as you do this, when you revert back to non-HDR material, it no longer automatically switches
back to Energy Saver "Auto", but it stays on the setting you used when HDR was active.
I don't know if this is a design limitation or some oversight in the firmware, but this is a big inconvenience.
I've got no idea if newer LG TV's also do this, but I would certianly check this prior to purchasing a newer LG TV.
If my conclusions about this "problem" are wrong, please enlighten me.
