I am having an issue with two of your tv's at my home with Apple HomeKit. I have a 55 inch and 65 inch OLED C9 TV. They are both compatible with HomeKit. Originally when I installed the TV's I had all sorts of issues with Apple HomeKit. For the Last 2 months Apple HomeKit has been working perfect with them. Now after a recent update to them via automatic updates, Apple HomeKit now has an issue viewing the tv on the HomeKit app remotely while the TV is OFF, It shows "No Response" in HomeKit. My TV's are hardwired via Ethernet cable. There are 4 states in HomeKit that are recognized for the TV: - Viewing the tv on the HomeKit app locally on the network while the TV is ON (This works in HomeKit and shows the tv as turned on) - Viewing the tv on the HomeKit app locally on the network while the TV is OFF (This works in HomeKit and shows the tv as turned off) - Viewing the tv on the HomeKit app remotely while the TV is ON (This works in HomeKit and shows the tv as turned on) - Viewing the tv on the HomeKit app remotely while the TV is OFF (This DOES NOT work in HomeKit and the TV shows in HomeKit as "No Response")
I've tried reseting the TV's and doing all sorts of things. Nothing has worked. I believe there is an issue with the latest firmware.
I plan on getting the “Alexa Echo Flex so I can control my tv and smart plugs. I have Alexa on my iPhone, and it works great, however I cant turn it on using Alexa. I believe it’s a simple fix, but can’t work it out. Can anyone help? This is on the 65UK6300PLA TV in my front room, where is an app that I have setup.
on my other tv in my bedroom, 43UM7000PLA there is no Alexa app, but I have managed to connect it via my phone Alexa app, again, cant turn on.
I have the LG thinQ app and this doesn’t allow turn on, should it?
edit: also, the 43um7000pla cant find any updates from the LG software check website found here.

Dear LG Engineers
please update the software to allow videos to run. Otherwise there is no use of smart tv at all. Please don't ruin your customer base and resolve issue immediately.
Could some one give me a step by step guide to installing Apple TV app? I know that there are a lot of features on the LG web os, and I'm gradually finding my way around and trying to use Magic remote, but would be very grateful for a reply. I'm 65 and I'm not that techy. I long for the days when you would get a physical manual! Thanks.
