How to set the default audio out?
By Will M
For the past few years I have been using a 2nd generation Apple TV to watch YouTube videos on my LG Smart TV, however as of today Apple have disabled their YouTube app for this particular device.
I presumed I would be able to use a YouTube app on my TV to continue watching videos in this way, after all has anyone ever heard of a Smart TV without a YouTube app? Since most new TVs are smart TVs these days most people I know have one and they all have the capability to play YouTube videos, usually you don't even have to download the app as it is one of the ones that comes pre-installed.
However I cannot find a YouTube app in the LG content store. I've not really tried to install new apps on my TV since getting it so I don't know if I'm looking in the right place, or it is one of those things like with smartphones where there are multiple places you can go and download apps from.
Bizarrely though, despite there being no YouTube app, there is a YouTube kids app, so it's not like LG have never heard of YouTube or anything, they just don't seem to have realised that people other than kids watch videos on it.
I’m would like to know specifically what triggers the LG smart TV screensaver to come on. There are multiple apps that while viewing media the Screensaver interrupts viewing. One would think the tv detects a static image for a set number of seconds. And also that number of seconds would be let’s say 60 or 120 or even possible be user adjustable. But no settings exist and the attached video shows that it interrupts video viewing. I guess they will not let me upload the video. I guess evidently too incriminating.
I have a LG TV model 55EG9A7T and I have been trying to connect my sennheiser bluetooth headphones using the wireless sound sync for the longest time but it is not able to find the device under available devices.
I tried to call in LG tech support - but no one seems sure whether only LG brand headphones are supported.
Does anyone know if only LG headphones are supported?
Can I use my portable HD to see the stuff, recorded on the LG tv on a laptop or othe computer.
Look forward to hearing from you.

Recently I read that the HBO GO App is available in Latinoamérica, ¿Is really available specially in Costa Rica? I was searching for it in the LG Store but nothing.
TIA for any help.
