Normal operation of "Energy Saving" setting


davexnet

Question

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

switched automatically.

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.

Thanks.

      A warm, comfortable home is essential for enduring the harsh, Northern hemisphere winter. But cranking up the heat during the coldest months of the year does come at a cost, harming the planet by increasing carbon emissions and hitting home owners with some hefty energy bills. That’s why heating solutions such as LG’s air-to-water heat pumps are a wise choice; delivering next-level efficiency and a more eco-conscious performance to keep you cozy indoors when it’s too frigid to go out.
      Here’s how installing a heat pump at home can help you enjoy a warm, energy-efficient winter.

      The Perfect Energy-Saving Heater for Your Home
      Offering numerous advantages over conventional heating solutions, heat pump systems can meet all of your space and floor heating needs and ensure a reliable supply of hot water, all winter long. A properly installed heat pump with a capacity suitable for the size or your space can consistently maintain the set temperature while generating fewer carbon emissions compared to an oil or gas boiler. What’s more, according to the German Heat Pump Association, heat pumps designed to operate using renewable energy sources can even help households to achieve carbon neutrality.

      LG offers benefits for different types of buildings with both split and monobloc heat pump solutions,1 such as those in the highly efficient LG Therma V R32 series. Boasting an A+++ energy rating in space heating with a Leaving Water Temperature (LWT) of 35 degrees Celsius,2 LG Therma V can provide year-around hot water supply as well as heating and cooling for the whole house. Even when the temperature dips down to negative 7 degrees Celsius outside, it still delivers powerful heating at an impressive 100 percent of capacity.3

      LG Therma V also features Seasonal Auto Mode – which enables it to automatically adjust performance in accordance with the temperature outdoors – and can heat water to a piping-hot temperature of 80 degrees Celsius.4 By installing an efficient heating system, you can make your home a warm, comfy oasis without consuming large amounts of electricity, thereby cutting energy costs and shrinking your energy footprint at the same time.

      Smart Temperature Management
      All LG Therma V solutions come with a remote control, while several models feature an integrated control panel where you can easily view a range of operational information – such as current mode and indoor temperature – and change settings as needed. The company’s solutions can also be remotely controlled from the LG ThinQ app, so you can have the perfect temperature awaiting you after a hard day at the office or make sure the heating is set to low when you’re away on vacation.
      Enjoy a warmer winter at home this year, and every year, with a convenient, efficient heating system that’s better for the planet and for your wallet.

      I output the sound from my LG 75UJ657A to external speakers through a bluetooth connection, but it doesn't automatically connect to the bluetooth device when I turn the TV on. Whenever I cycle the TV off and, then, back on, the TV asks if I want to connect to the bluetooth device, and I have to select "yes" with the remote. My smart phone automatically connects to all the bluetooth devices I've set it up with. When I start my car, my phone connects automatically to the car stereo/phone system, and it does the same with other bluetooth speakers I have. This is what I want my TV to do.
      How do I get my LG 75UJ657A to automatically connect to the bluetooth device I've set up with it?

      My remote and tv were working perfectly fine until my power button wouldn’t turn my tv off. Every other button worked except the power button so I changed the batteries and nothing changed. So then I pressed the home and back button thing and it de-registered my remote. So when I press ok to re-register my remote nothing was working on the remote at all. The power light still turns on with every button I press but will not connect back to the tv. So I then download the thinkQ app and oroceed to reset my tv. Which was probably the worst mistake I could make because now my tv is stuck on “press the ok(wheel) button on your remote” and cannot detect the remote what so ever. I keep calling customer care but they keep telling me to buy a new remote which I don’t think is the problem since it works on my other lg tvs in the home. I’m stuck with a tv that won’t display anything but press ok(wheel) button on your remote.

      I have an LG TV using the magic remote.  I discovered that it allowed for either the LG tv or Sling TV to be able to be set as an input so I got sling tv.  I am now wondering if there is a way to set that when you power on the tv, it will automatically go to the sling tv input (or app)?

      Thanks

      Commemorating national Energy Star Day 2022 in the United States, LG joined forces with home improvement retailer Lowe’s and non-profit Rebuilding Together to help a deserving family in Charlotte, North Carolina, USA, under the theme of “Save Today, Save Tomorrow and Save for Good” with energy efficiency upgrades using Energy Star certified LG home appliances.

      “Rebuilding Together and Lowe’s are longtime partners and know the importance of making sure to replace or repair homes with materials that will last while also saving the homeowner money on energy bills,” said Beth Morrison, executive director of Rebuilding Together, who thanked LG — 2022 Energy Star Partner of the Year — for its important role in providing energy efficient appliances.
      Gary and Pat Turpin moved to the Hidden Valley neighborhood of Charlotte in 2000 after Mr. Turpin served in the U.S. Army, where he received the National Defense Service Medal among other honors. Mr. Turpin is visually impaired, and it has been difficult for the family to keep up with home repairs and maintenance.

      Volunteers from Lowe’s, LG and other local businesses converged on the Turpins’ home on Energy Star Day, Oct. 12. to replace kitchen and laundry room appliances and flooring, repair roofs and insulate for weatherization, paint interiors and exteriors and install smoke detectors and handicap-accessible features.
      The Energy Star appliance upgrades including an LG refrigerator, dishwasher and clothes washer and dryer will help make life easier for this family, adding convenience and energy efficiency to everyday living and saving them money over time. According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, by choosing ENERGY STAR products such as appliances from LG, a typical household can save about USD 450 on their energy bills and still enjoy the quality and performance they expect.
      The refrigerator LG provided earned the Energy Star Most Efficient 2022 designation — representing the year’s very best products for energy savings and environmental protection — along with an Energy Star certified dishwasher. Rebuilding Together completed the kitchen makeover by installing an LG electric range and over-the-range microwave oven.

      As part of the home’s energy efficiency upgrades, Lowe’s and Rebuilding Together also are installing an Energy Star certified LG top-load washer and companion Energy Star certified LG dryer. Clothes washers and dryers that earn the Energy Star use about 20 percent less energy and about 30 percent less water than traditional models. To improve both indoor air quality and energy efficiency, LG also is providing the family an Energy Star certified air purifier.

      With support from a USD 350,000 grant from the Lowe’s Foundation in March, this project is one of more than 40 critical home repair projects planned for the Hidden Valley neighborhood as part of Rebuilding Together’s Building a Healthy Neighborhood program. Hidden Valley has a concentration of older single-family homes that are significantly less energy efficient than others across the country, on average. According to the EPA, low-income households pay up to three times more on home energy costs, as a proportion of total income and some are spending nearly 20 percent of their income on utility bills.

      “LG’s support of Energy Star Day 2022, in cooperation with the EPA, Lowe’s and Rebuilding Together, reflects our commitment to the environment and the community – core business principles for our company,” said John Taylor, senior vice president and head of corporate social responsibility and sustainability of LG USA. “This Energy Star Day and every day, LG and Energy Star help you save for good – for all the good things you want in your life and for a healthier planet for you and your family.”
