I just got a new TV (43UN7000PUB) and can’t get HomeKit to work properly. It works fine when the TV is on but won’t work when the TV is off.
I have seen several threads on this and done some research but did not find a resolution.
I read several threads that blamed it on the Magic Remote and Bluetooth. This TV does not have the Magic Remote so I think that can be ruled out.
One thread pointed out that when the TV is off it loses it’s LAN connection and it’s WI-FI connection and said that could be the problem. I can confirm this is true with mine as well. This argument makes perfect sense to me as all connections would be lost when the TV is off.
If anyone can help I’d surely appreciate it.
One thread said the problem was fixed with a FW update. But that was with a different model and a different FW than mine. As I recall from memory it was something like FW xx.35.10 and it was a 55” or 65” TV. My firmware says it is current with version 3.21.36.
Maybe a moderator could confirm the firmware fix already exists for this issue. If so, could you please see that it gets pushed out to all HomeKit TVs instead of just that single model?
Thanks in advance for any help or comments.

LG Calls on Young Musicians and Creators
to Express Their Own “Life’s Good” Message
SEOUL, May 27, 2021 — LG Electronics (LG) today announced that its 2021 Life’s Good campaign will consist of two exciting components: Life’s Good Music Project in collaboration with acclaimed singer, songwriter and producer Charlie Puth and the Life’s Good Film, to be directed by rising star Jackson Tisi.
LG’s Life’s Good campaign gives young people around the world the opportunity to let their creativity and talent shine. First launched last year, the Life’s Good Music Project calls on aspiring, young performers to share their own compositions expressing LG’s uplifting Life’s Good message. Anyone who loves music and can hum a tune is invited to submit an original accompaniment based on the 2021 version of the Life’s Good song, produced by Charlie Puth. The talent behind the winning entries will receive OLED TVs along with other LG products and the opportunity to complete and perform the song with Puth.
Submissions to the Life’s Good Music Project can be made by posting to Instagram or YouTube with the hashtag #LifeisGoodMusic_LG until June 27. Full entry details can be found .
“I can’t wait to listen to everyone’s submissions and hear their take on the melody and chorus,” said Puth. “Music has always been a source of healing and empowerment for me, and I know this is going to be a memorable experience for everyone.”
This year’s Life’s Good Film will be directed by Jackson Tisi, who won Gold at the Young Director Award 2020 for his moving short documentary, LEON. LG is further challenging the next generation of filmmakers to visually capture the moments and places that have meaning in their lives and how they interpret LG’s Life’s Good philosophy.
The accompanying Life’s Good Film Project is intended to convey a universal message of hope and celebrate the diversity of experiences and viewpoints of young auteurs from all over the globe through their inspiring, unique stories. Submissions can be made by posting to Instagram or YouTube with the hashtag #LifeisGoodFilm_LG until June 27. Details for participation in the Life’s Good Film Project can be seen .
“I believe there’s something profound in our everyday thoughts and the places we go to seek inspiration or solace,” said Tisi. “By sharing what we find in our everyday, this film will convey a resonating message of what life still holds.”
To accompany the 2021 Life’s Good campaign, LG has also created a brand channel on offering a variety of cheerful GIF stickers – including those from both the Life’s Good Music Project and Life’s Good Film Project – for use on Instagram, TikTok, Snapchat and other social platforms.

Hi guys, I have an older received (Arcam AVR300) that only support optical input, so I was able to add it manually via Connected Devices, and can control the volume and mute, however I can't turn it off quickly (can only do it via the "..." button and selected sound bar and then power). This work, but is it possible to map this to lets say the top box on/off button or even some other button? Maybe even some cable I would but to make this work. The old remove is dead so I need a way out and the receiver is old and I don't want to keep it on always. Thanks

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
US ROLLOUT OF ALEXA ON 2019 LG AI THINQ TVs UNDERWAY
Popular AI Voice Service Will Be Activated on 2019 LG TVs with AI ThinQ
ENGLEWOOD CLIFFS, N.J, May 29, 2019 — LG Electronics USA has begun rolling out activation of Amazon Alexa built-in to its 2019 TV models that feature artificial intelligence. The update, which will begin going live today, will be implemented through the Alexa app installed on LG UHD, NanoCell and OLED TVs with AI ThinQ®. Activation is expected to phase in over the next few weeks.
“The addition of Alexa to our 2019 AI TVs makes LG the only TV brand that comes equipped both voice assistant platforms” said Tim Alessi, head of home entertainment product marketing at LG Electronics USA. “LG is always focused on delivering the most diverse range of services. The arrival of Alexa on our 2019 TVs delivers a new level of simplicity and convenience to the lives of our customers.”
Following the introduction of the Google Assistant on 2018 LG TVs with AI ThinQ, LG is delivering more choices and options with the addition of Amazon Alexa capabilities to its 2019 TVs with AI ThinQ. With the Alexa app, owners of compatible LG TVs can ask questions, control smart home products, access over 90,000 Alexa Skills and more, all without the need for a separate external device. LG’s 2019 TVs can also understand hundreds of voice commands and handle requests of greater complexity than ever before, thanks to more advanced LG ThinQ AI conversational voice recognition technology.
With Alexa Routines, users can link together a series of actions, such as, providing traffic information, reporting the weather and listing the day’s agenda items, simply by saying “Alexa, start my morning.” They can also play music or audio books and take advantage of the numerous skills already available on the Alexa platform. Since Alexa www.LG.com 2 is built-in, new updates and features for the voice service will continue to be available to LG AI TV owners moving forward.

LG has unveiled the pricing and release plans for some of its 2019 OLED TV lineup, basically mirroring the company’s playbook from last year. These are some of the very best TVs you can buy, so LG is continuing to price them as such.
The 2019 C9 (65-inch, 55-inch) and E9 (65-inch) series TVs will start shipping in April. The 77-inch model of the C9 and 55-inch E9 will hit stores a bit later in May and June, respectively. And this year’s update to LG’s “wallpaper” TVs — to be available in 65- and 75-inch sizes — will come out in June.
(If you were wondering, no, there’s still not at a firm price or release date for the stunning rollable TV.)
LG’s TV branding can be pretty confusing, but all of these TVs fundamentally share the same display quality and the latest features that the company first announced at CES: that includes AirPlay 2, built-in support for Amazon Alexa voice commands, improved image processing, and more. LG claims itself as the only major TV manufacturer offering both Alexa and Google Assistant out of the box, whereas some other brands (Samsung, Roku TVs, etc.) only support them through external speakers you might already own.
The TVs also feature HDMI 2.1, future-proofing them for any content (and just about any frame rate) that might be coming down the pipe over the next several years.
But they differ in what’s around the screen; the E9 series has glass on all four sides, most noticeably at the bottom. The C9 doesn’t get quite that fancy. And the W9 (wallpaper) series puts the same display into a design that’s almost unfathomably thin.
LG has said only its 2019 TVs will gain AirPlay 2 and HomeKit functionality; other TV makers including Samsung and Vizio are also adding the useful feature to their older sets. It’d be nice if the company would reconsider this, but I’m not holding out hope.
Below are the prices and release months for the C9, E9, and W9 LG OLED ThinQ TVs. I’d advise against buying them soon after launch, as LG’s OLEDs tend to see big markdowns near the end of the year.
LG C9 OLED 4K TVs:
77-inch: $6,999 (May)
65-inch: $3,499 (April)
55-inch: $2,499 (April)
LG E9 OLED 4K TVs:
65-inch: $4,299 (April)
55-inch: $3,299 (June)
LG W9 Wallpaper OLED 4K TVs:
77-inch: $12,999 (June)
65-inch: $6,999 (June)
