Bluetooth and Internal Speakers



On my oled55bxpua, how do I use Bluetooth connected to my hearing aids and internal speakers at the same time?
Currently if I use Bluetooth, the internal speakers are turned off. This happens even if I choose Bluetooth + Internal speakers.
In this case I am the only one who can hear the TV.

You might want to review this site below, and if their adaptor is available in your country (if needed), and/or a usable alternative to connecting up if it looks like a viable solution. I have seen it on AMAZON for various countries I think.

I have Bluetooth hearing aids and my LG TV is Bluetooh equiped.

My problem is that when I pair my hearing aids, they work fine, but the internal speaker get turned off. I can either use the TV's speakers or my Bluetooth aids. NOT BOTH.

The TV that we replaced allowed me to use both.

@neisman I missed the part where you said the on your oled55bxpua TV, you already selected Bluetooth + Internal speakers, but that fails to work.

That sounds like a bug. Have you ensured that your TV has the latest firmware, just released on 17th March, as 03.21.80 ?  If not done via OTA, you can download it on a PC and put it on a USB stick.

LG often fix other minor things, but only document the major issues fixed, so you might get lucky.  See here to get the update and instructions:

OK, I got an answer from LG.
Basically they said TS, we designed it that way and there is no work around.

This is ridiculous, because the menu item says specifically "Bluetooth + Internal speakers", therefore it is a bug.

On my OLED48CX3LB it works exactly as you expected.
I'd rather have [Bluetooth + HDMI ARC] or [Wired headphones + HDMI ARC] or [Optical + HDMI ARC] so I could listen through the headphones and the digital amp at the same time, but LG in its infinite wisdom thinks otherwise.
How on earth did they think anyone would prefer internal speakers over a proper 5.1 HiFi surround sound system?

      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)?

      I recently updated the firmware on my  LG43UH610V.  Now I constantly get "Wired Lan cable disconnected" / "Wired network is connected" messages even while watching a video file from my NAS. The TV is connected and using the network while getting these messages. It has always been on a fixed IP address on the LAN.

      We ran an ARC sound bar with surround sound on a C9 OLED TV - this works fine . I would like to add a bluetooth headphone for my partner to use as her hearing is getting worse but key is to operate both the sound bar and the bluetooth headphones at same time  - Has anyone done this . I can see away to do it with internal speaker option but quaility of speakers is not too good on the C9.

      I got tired listening to the talking heads during football half time broadcast & started fiddling with my OLED65C1 magic remote control.
      Press the 'back arrow with tail' and the program rewinds 15 minutes. Repeatedly pressing it again keeps advancing it by 15 minutes. As soon as you stop rewinding, the program automatically continues playing from that point.
      The LG chat support agent was completely unaware of this feature. All I could do was Rewind, no Pause or Fast Forward.
      OK, now you've played with the button & rewound the program for whatever minutes & don't want to watch the same stuff again. Simple - change the channel using up^ arrow & then the down arrow.
      The outstanding questions are Pause and Fast Forward. If you have some insight concerning live broadcast tv, we'd love to hear from you.
