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?
Alexa installed correctly on 32lq63 TV.
remote that came with to does not appear to have a microphone. How do I control Alexa?
Simple instructions for a simple person please !
Until last few months, alexa was working with all the commands, now open any app like Youtube, Netflix, etc not working
Play or Pause any app videos not working, don't know what's going on with lgtv, i bought around 1000 dollar tv and this important feature isn't working
If u all can check, alexa on my lg c2 oled 55 inch has stopped working sometimes it gives error like its unable to connect to server and now when i give commands to play or pause any music or video, it says it can not do it.
I have reset it multiple times it does not work.
Many users on alexa app skills for lg tv webos are also talking about the same, that means its not limited to me only
i have created an Alexa routine for my LG C2 Oled 55 inch TV which will play Youtube video at the end but somehow alexa is manage to do that but without audio, the video plays well but audio doesnt even if the TV is not on Mute... I had tried it many a times increasing decreasing volume but it does not work.
but when i say alexa again while the video is playing (without audio) then hit back button to close alexa prompt then suddenly the audio starts playing... so i suspect it has to do something with audio takeover by alexa, i dont know for sure plz suggest
