Homekit won't turn TV on


yippie_kiyay

Question

My new LG TV (65UM6900PUA) running WebOS 04.71.25 works great with HomeKit, with the exception that it is not reachable while it is turned off. If I try to turn it on in the home app, it says "No Response."  I have changed the 'Turn on via Wi-Fi' setting to on, and it will turn on from the 'LG TV Plus' app, but not from the iOS home app. Is there a specific setting or something I need to change?

Only way I can resolve no response errors when TV (OLED55E8PTA) is in standby mode is move IOS device running HomeKit app within Bluetooth range,  TV is connected to network via Ethernet cable. Quick Start+ is enabled.  I have a 4K Apple TV within 3 feet of the TV and a HomePod also within Bluetooth range. Once TV is on I can change inputs and turn it off via HomeKit app outside of Bluetooth range.

I am rather network savvy. I have software running on my LAN that shows what IP addresses and MAC addresses (devices) that are connected. I can see that when I power off my LG 49UN7300PUB LG TV it disconnects from the network. It doesn’t matter whether the connection is via ethernet or WiFI (2.4G or 5G). Well if the TV is not connected to the network Apple Homekit will show the device as “no response” and you won’t be able to turn on the TV via an app either.  I have tried several settings including Quick Start on/off and Mobile Device Management on/off. I have tried a variety of power settings. Everything to no avail. If an LG technician could advise on how to keep the network connection active, it would resolve this issue. So, any guidance here?

I have this exact problem and given the time lapse between your post and mine - has anything been done? Did you find a solution?

Frustratingly Nothing - I have resorted to using the LG ThinQ app - that seems to control it completely….on/off anytime ….

      My Denon sound bar use to work faultlessly. All of a sudden it won't let me adjust the sound through the LG remote. Never had an issue prior. And it won't turn on automatically.
      I have power cycled, removed all cables and reconnected them, made sure I have HDMI Arc set and we'll as the Simplink on.
      It use to say Denon is now available when I turned on the tv. 
      I think there was an update to the LG tv and wondering if there was something changed there.
      Cheers

      OK this is REALLY frustrating and annoying - as I understand, people have been asking for this feature for ages now, and I can't imagine why it would be so difficult to program an on/off switch.
      My neighbor is a really old dude, he has no idea what he's pressing on his phone. By some weird chance - and no, he's not doing this on purpose - he tries to establish a WiFi Direct connection to my TV like 850 times a day. As I don't use this feature, I'd like to be able to turn it off, because what if my other neighbors simply decided to annoy me? The TV is visible on like 5 floors in my building.
      It's not an option to turn off WiFi altogether, as I have no intention of running a 15-meter cable through my house.
      PLEASE for once just listen to what people have to say.
      Also, this latest WebOS update has made things like 70% slower, I have an abnormal delay whatever I press. No kind of resetting did anything to fix this.
