Hooking TiVo to my new LG 50" UP76 TV



My new LG 50UP76 TV does not see my TiVo, attached via HDMI going through a receiver. My Roku and DVD player also go through that receiver, with output to TV and external speakers. I can switch inputs on the receiver to determine what goes to the TV. I have Spectrum, which feeds into the TiVo through a Cisco signal converter box provided by Spectrum (Time Warner, actually). Those pre-TV connectors are all the usual coax cable. I've used the TiVo as the live TV selector on the Samsung that recently died. How do I go about getting my new LG to see the TiVo? Also, I have a Roku box that appears when I select HDMI as input, but the implementation on LG inexplicably jumped me to a Hulu page, offering Sign Up or Trial, but no exit back to Roku menu. Any ideas on this? About ready to return the LG and just get another Samsung, even though I've heard bad things about their new software.

I have a similar situation. You don’t say which model TiVo you have, so I’ll just tell you my experience.

As best I can figure out, my TiVo Roamio does not by default support HDMI-CEC, which is the control protocol that lets components communicate and control one another through the HDMI connections  (LG's name for this is SIMPLINK). Depending on the TiVo model and "TiVo Experience" software you’re running, you might be able to enable it, but without the HDMI-CEC feature, I’ve never had my LG C1 "see" the TiVo. 

This is not a problem in my case, because I use my receiver to select which external source component I want to view. Although I still select the Blu Ray player and Apple TV box via the receiver, the LG will "see" and can control my Blu Ray player and Apple TV box as long as HDMI-CEC is enabled for both.

I understand I can update my Roamio to "TiVo Experience 4" or higher to get the HDMI-CEC functionality, which should let the C1 see and control it. But as I say I let my receiver do all my source switching, so I’ve never tried. 

Hope this helps.

      On an LG CX 55, two minutes into episode 4 -- "The Tomb" -- of the series Moon Knight on Disney+ there is a scene with statuettes in niches each lit by an oil lamp. As the flames flicker, dark blotches jump around some of the niche walls.
      These are certainly unintended artifacts.
      Can someone confirm wether this is a CX (only) issue?

      MX player and jio cinema are commonly used Android apps which offers many free to watch movies. It would be great if that two added in the lg store. Hope it'll be added soon

      Hi people,
      Recently bought one 49LF6350 and one 43LF6350 and the two models have the same problem, whenever I try to open an application, informs me that I have to update (required update, you must update this app to launch it. the update may cause data to be stored deleted.), and when I try to update, it gives an error message (application has not Been instaled. try again). It happens to apps also store to at new install. what may be occurring?

      I've just got a 55NANO80 TV and tried to set it up today. 
      I got through the set up as far as connecting via satellite, cable or aerial.   This stumped me because I don't have any of these, as far as I know!  I just have NOW TV.  So, I pressed exit, thinking that the TV would skip trying to search for channels.   The screen then flashed with vertical black and white lines and then went completely black.  
      I have tried to reset the TV and turn it off and back on.  Nothing shows on the screen, so I cannot press the settings button or anything.  
      Have I been sent a dud TV or have I missed something really obvious?  Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
      Thank you.
      Edit:  I have turned Now TV on and the sound is coming through the television, but I still have no picture.

      I have a LG OLED C8 TV with a Soundbar and when connected to Optical the Volume Control is normal with a Percentage 0% to 100% but when connecting to HDMI ARC port like the Soundbar suggest to be connected it just show + or -,  you don't have anyway of knowing what the volume is set  to.    I have tried two Soundbars a LG LAS551H that was connected via Optical and when connected to HDMI ARC it also does not show Volume Control.  I have  got a new Sonos Beam Gen 2 that is now connected to HDMI ARC port and sounds great but if I connect it to Optical it's much lower in volume but has the Volume indicator.   Please advice.    
      I would like to suggest three enhancement request: 1. to show Volume Percentage on the HDMI ARC port.  2. Optical and HDMI ARC have the same output and 3. the Sonos be added to the Device list under Soundbars. 
      Thank you,
