Can you not Airplay 2 to a supported LG TV when the TV is turned off?

Question

Can you not Airplay 2 to a supported LG TV when the TV is turned off?  HomeKit works when the TV is on or off and Airplay works only when the TV is on. 

My TV is a C9 series. 

 

Thanks!

Does anyone know? From a UX standpoint, you would think that airplay should always show for the tv even if it were off.  So if the TV were off and you selected to airplay to it, it would turn the TV on. 

If anyone sees that their airplay is available when their TV is off, please let me know.  For now I think it's safe to assume it's LG's bad UX.

 

Thanks,

Paesano

      Dear All,
      I'm new here hoping to find a solution to my problem, after now trying around for almost two days without any result.
      My set-up:
      - LG OLED55C97LA OLED TV
      - Nubert nuPro X-3000 (Pair of active speakers)
      The active speakers are connected to the TV via HDMI-ARC on both sides. I'm aware that my configuration might be a bit unique, however I have the feeling that it is the TV / webOS which is messing arround with me.
      After connecting my speakers to the HDMI-ARC, changing the TVs output to the HDMI 2 (ARC) is started the device configuration. I was glad, as typing in "Nubert" into the device selection of both "Home cinema system" or "Bluetooth / Soundbar", the webOS brought up a configuration to select.
      During the "try-out" phase of the configuration process, turn on and off the power of the speakers works perfectly - even very fast! After configuration, sound comes through the speakers very well and I can adjust the volume. However, when I turn of the TV the speakers will remain on. Same vice versa when trying to turn everything on by only starting the TV.
      Does anyone face a similar problem and might have a workaround for this? It is very frustrating and annoying, as it works perfectly in the configuration - but not later on.
      Thanks for your help!

      Hi guys,
      I wanted to know if native WebOS media player on LG tvs, support streaming of movies with EXTERNAL subtitles present in folder where the movie is - via DLNA
      I purchased Sony XG95 recently, but it seems that native player does not support DLNA external subtitles - only embedded ones. This is joke as even my old samsung from 2015 could deal with it.
      Is anyone perhaps streaming movies via NAS using DLNA server (like Universal media Server, TwonkyServer, Servioo) and can confirm whether external subtitles are supported or not?
      I'm considering switching to LG C9 oled if it has support for these DLNA subtitles.

      Hello,
      55SM8600 TV player plays video mp4, but it does not read subtitles. Name of video file is "A Journey to the End of Time.mp4", name of subtitles file is "A Journey to the End of Time.srt", they are in same directory of course. There are no other files with same name. Any computer video player reads both files without problem - exactly same files.
      I attached subtiles file - should smart TV read it? If not, then what should be format? Please point to a working sample.
      A Journey to the End of Time.srt

      Hello,
      I bought LG webOS UM7100PLB and whenever I try to watch movies from my laptop (Macbook Pro Retina) on my tv the movies stutter and jam. It is still watchable but extremely annoying so I just plug HDMI cable to watch it. The problem is not also with movies when I scroll or do anything on my laptop, on my LG is slow and stutters as well.
      Anybody knows what the problem would be? I attached a screenshot. 
      Thanks for your help,

      Hi,

      From the Netherlands. I have a OLED 55C9. Airplay 2 works partly. But Homekit doesn't at all!. When scanning the QR code generated by the TV, the TV says it has been configured with Homekit. However, my Homekit app says that adding the LG OLED has failed. The tv is connected by ethernet and WiFi, the iPhone on the same wifi....With other iPhone no result either.
      Some Airplay features work, others not:
      MacBook Pro:  ScreenMirror works, playing films from iTunes works, playing films directly from QuickTime and selecting Airplay to LG TV DOESN'T work.
      iPhone: Airplay works with all features.
       
      Anyone know a solution???

      SEOUL, July 24, 2019 — LG Electronics (LG) today announced that Apple AirPlay 2 and HomeKit are available starting July 25 on its 2019 AI TV lineup, making LG the first global TV manufacturer to support HomeKit. These Apple features will be available through a firmware update for 2019 LG OLED TVs, NanoCell TVs and UHD TVs with ThinQ AI capability.
      With AirPlay 2, LG 2019 AI TV owners can effortlessly stream content — including Dolby Vision titles – from iPhone, iPad and Mac straight to their TV sets. Users can stream their favorite movies and television shows from the Apple TV app and other video apps as well as view photos directly on their LG AI TVs. Users can also play Apple Podcasts, Apple Music and music from their library or other streaming services through their LG AI TV and other AirPlay 2-compatible speakers in their home at the same time – all in sync.
      HomeKit enables users to conveniently control their smart home with the Home app or via Siri on their Apple devices. LG AI TVs can be easily added to the Home app, from which users can access basic TV functions such as power, volume and source. LG AI TVs can also be added to scenes or automations along with other HomeKit accessories.
      “LG remains at the forefront of TV technological innovation because of our never-ending quest to deliver the best home viewing experience,” said Brian Kwon, president LG Mobile Communications and Home Entertainment companies. “With Apple AirPlay 2 and HomeKit support, we are demonstrating our commitment to offering consumer benefits that go beyond just best-in-class picture quality.”
      Apple AirPlay 2 and HomeKit will begin rolling out to owners of LG OLED and NanoCell TVs in more than 140 countries starting this week, with the update continuing over the weeks to follow.
