Aptx compatibility in LG TVs
Hello to everyone,
I am new to the forum. I wanted to ask whether I am alone with this problem or it is common.
My set up: PC-DolbAtmos, LG-CX, SONOS ARC (eARC).
I've notice the audio connection between the PC and LG+ARC was unstable. Finally I noticed LG-CX sometimes forward (passthrough) the good Dolby Atmos signal and some other times it passes a signal which is WMA (not supported by the sonos device).
PC is set to always send "Atmos", when WMA is sent, simply changing "passthrough->PCM->Passthrough" in the LG audio menu solves the problem.
Why is know that LG-CX randomly passes the good signal at times and at other times doesn't ?
Would you have any tricks to help out ? maybe force audio to be transcoded by the TV (possible?) to be alway DD+ ?
Thanks a lot for any kind of help and suggestions.
It would be amazing to be able to use the Philips HUE and synchronize the lights with the video and audio of the LG TV.
I output the sound from my LG 75UJ657A to external speakers through a bluetooth connection, but it doesn't automatically connect to the bluetooth device when I turn the TV on. Whenever I cycle the TV off and, then, back on, the TV asks if I want to connect to the bluetooth device, and I have to select "yes" with the remote. My smart phone automatically connects to all the bluetooth devices I've set it up with. When I start my car, my phone connects automatically to the car stereo/phone system, and it does the same with other bluetooth speakers I have. This is what I want my TV to do.
How do I get my LG 75UJ657A to automatically connect to the bluetooth device I've set up with it?

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 have a 55" Tv and a LG soundbar, i have put the soundbar behind where I sit, basically so my TV doesnt have to be up so loud. Its connected with a optical cable. I changed the sound setting on the TV so the sound output is 'Internal speaker audio output (optical) This works perfectly for an hour or so but then it develops a faint echo effect? If i change the setting to just internal or one of the other settings, then change it back, its fine again for a while, but then the echo comes back? Anyone know why this is?
I have tried every setting i can find but it still happens?
Hi, I'm looking for a pair of Bluetooth headphones to use with an LG 65sm8600pta TV. A lot of headphone reviews talk about the importance of the aptx standard/codec in making sure there is no lag in audio and to keep the picture and audio in sync. The manual for my TV says only that it supports LGs proprietary 'sound sync' standard. I can't find any headphones that have that compatibility. Does anyone know if LG TVs support aptx, and if not, what is the best way to make sure I don't spend $300 on good over ear headphones but I can't get them to sync?
