Hi, I have an LG 43UN71006LB with OS v4.50.53 (latest)
I want to buy a TV for my mother who has dementia & poor eyesight.
She needs to be able to control the TV with Alexa - i.e. voice only without having to hold a button on a remote down.
I thought I'd test this on my TV and it works very well. I've even set "routines" on Alexa so that saying "Alexa, BBC 1" is a shortcut for "Alex, change the channel on LGTV to 101" etc.
But - it doesn't work for radio channels (channel 704 is BBC Radio 4):
"Alexa, change channel on LGTV to 101" - works perfectly (101 = BBC 1 - a TV channel)
"Alexa, change channel on LGTV to 705" - "that command doesn't work on device LGTV"
It basically won't work with any of the radio channels (700 to 790)
"Alexa, change channel on LGTV to BBC RADIO 4" - "hmm - I don't know that"
"Alexa, play BBC Radio 4 on LGTV" - "I didn't find anything called LGTV that can play music"
I thought I'd try to change 704 to another channel outside of the 700 to 790 range but when I tried:
"The programme number cannot be edited between programme 700 to 790"
I tried playing the Radio on the Alexa then using Sound Share to turn the TV into a Bluetooth speaker - this works really well - except that I can't turn Sound Share on using Alexa:
"Alexa, enable Sound Share on LGTV" - "that command doesn't work on device LGTV"
Anyone have any ideas?

Company’s Bath Solution, PuriCare HydroTower and System Ironing Deliver
Enhanced Hygiene, Ease-of-Use and Thoughtful Design
SEOUL, Feb. 23, 2024 — LG Electronics (LG) is unveiling a range of home lifestyle solutions at the 2024 Kitchen & Bath Industry Show (KBIS) in Las Vegas, USA, from February 27-29. The company’s latest innovations, including the bath solution, PuriCare HydroTower and system ironing, use sophisticated technologies and user-friendly design to elevate and enrich daily living.
Bath Solution for an Enhanced Bathroom Experience
LG is expanding enhanced customer experience to the bathroom, one of the main living spaces in the home, by presenting a bath solution that provides convenience and comfort. LG’s Smart Bath and Shower Purifier offers a refreshing shower experience, delivering clean, purified water through an advanced water filter. The system intelligently monitors water usage and provides timely filter replacement alerts to help facilitate a consistently pure stream of water.
For greater comfort in the shower, LG’s Smart Bath and Shower Purifier leverages thermostatics to maintain the selected water temperature. Its intuitive control unit features a digital display that allows users to see the current water temperature, making it easy to adjust the heat – or coolness – of the water to their satisfaction. LG’s bath solution also includes the Smart Airflower, which supports a comfortable bathroom environment by actively controlling air temperature and humidity. Designed to rapidly circulate air and reduce dampness, the Smart Airflower is equipped with two fans that extract moisture, and one that sends out warm, dry air.
The third part of the bath solution is a versatile smart mirror that serves as a hub for AI-based services, provides helpful content including shower and bath tips for bathroom usage and functions as a conventional mirror.
PuriCare HydroTower for Hygiene, Health and Convenience
The LG PuriCare HydroTower combines cutting-edge air purification and humidification technologies and boasts a stylish, column-type form factor that complements any décor or space. Making its international debut at KBIS 2024, the HydroTower was successfully launched in South Korea last year, where it surpassed 10,000 units sold in only 50 days.
Producing a refreshing, purified mist, the HydroTower maintains a clean water supply and water tank by utilizing advanced tech that removes harmful substances and minerals, and prevents limescale.1,2 LG’s innovative product heats water to 100 degrees Celsius to halt bacterial growth,3 delivering peace of mind as well as effective humidification. Additionally, the HydroTower is capable of filtering ultrafine dust particles from the air, providing a healthier, more pleasant indoor environment.4
Before it commences humidification operation, the PuriCare HydroTower uses steam to cleanse and automatically dry the path that the moisture particles pass through, further boosting hygiene.5 LG’s user-friendly design allows for the easy removal and disassembly of components – such as the cover and water tank – for convenient rinsing. What’s more, the product can quickly reach the user’s desired humidity level, providing a robust humidification capacity of 700 cubic centimeters (23.6 ounces) per hour.
All-in-One System Ironing
Technologically advanced yet elegantly simple, LG’s system ironing delivers effective wrinkle management to help users elevate their personal style. A sleek, collapsable ironing board with an integrated steam iron and accessory storage, system ironing generates five-bar high pressure steam – which is five times the pressure of a conventional steamer – to smooth out unwanted creases. The additional steaming power comes from a high-pressure steam generator and from the internal heating system built into the ironing board surface. The high-pressure steam particles produced by system ironing penetrate fabrics to greatly reduce the appearance of wrinkles.
Incorporating two fans that help eliminate moisture from garments, the ‘Styling Board’ works to prevent fabric shrinkage, making it suitable for managing delicate items of clothing. The convenient design of LG’s system ironing offers simple board-height adjustment, a ‘holding’ button that automatically locks the product’s wheels during ironing, and an easy-folding design for hassle-free storage.
“LG is excited to introduce KBIS 2024 visitors to an exceptional lineup of home innovations, including the bath solution, PuriCare HydroTower and system ironing,” said Lyu Jae-cheol, president of LG Electronics Home Appliance & Air Solution Company. “We will continue to introduce smart life solutions across diverse categories, deeply rooted in our understanding of customer lifestyles, seeking to lead the market through thoughtful innovations for a better life.”
LG’s new home solutions will be on display at the company’s exhibition booth (West Hall #2343, Las Vegas Convention Center) during KBIS 2024 in Las Vegas, Nevada.

1 Tested by Korea Textile Inspection & Testing Research Institute (KOTITI) using the HydroTower model HY703RWAA to measure the concentration of substances that cause water hardness (tap water) by comparing post-filter concentration with initial levels, resulting in 99.9 percent of removal of scaling induced by Calcium and Magnesium. Actual performance may vary based on the usage environment.
2 Tested by Korea Conformity Laboratories (KCL) using the HydroTower model HY703RWAA to measure filtration performance (residual chlorine in glass), optional filtration performance (water hardness) and dissolution stability. The results demonstrated a 100 percent removal rate for residual chlorine, 100 percent removal of water hardness, and compliance with dissolution safety standards. It is different from filtration for purifying drinking water. Actual performance may vary based on the usage environment.
3 Reduces 99.999 percent of harmful bacteria in the water tank. Tested by Korea Textile Inspection & Testing Research Institute (KOTITI) and Korea Testing & Research Institute (KTR) using the HydroTower test model HY703RWAA measuring the number of bacteria (Staphylococcus aureus, Bacilluspneumoniae, Klebsiella pneumoniae) in water under conditions of 20±5 degrees Celsius and 50± 10 percent humidity after the completion of the ‘humidifying water sterilization’ mode. Actual performance may vary based on the usage environment.
4 Reduces 99.999 percent of ultrafine dust as small as 0.01 micrometers. Tested by Korea Conformity Laboratories (KCL) using the HydroTower model HY703RWAA to measure the dust removal rate in Clean Turbo Mode under conditions of 23±1.0 degrees Celsius and 50±2.0 percent of room humidity. Actual performance may vary based on the usage environment.
5 Tested by LG Internal Lab using the HydroTower model HY703RWAA to measure the weight change of the humidification flow path after one hour of operating Turbo Humidification mode, then stopping the operation (Auto Drying) under conditions of 23±2 degrees Celsius and 50±10 percent humidity. Actual performance may vary based on the usage environment.
