Alexa Issues with Routines

Recommended Posts

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

I have the same problem, when it's on OPEN TV and I say ALEXA OPEN YOUTUBE, it opens but the videos don't come out with sound and if I go back to any other APP (NETFLIX/PRIME/TV/HDMI) the sound doesn't work anymore, I I have to unplug it to get the sound back. Firmware bug? Did you manage to fix it?

I have a similar problem. Turning off the tv at night using the tv sleep settings is very cumbersome to access, so I set up a routine using the Alexa app on my iPhone to turn off the tv 30 minutes after I tell Alexa I am going to sleep. The next time the tv is turned on it has no sound. The only way to fix it is to unplug the tv, then plug it back in.

Eu tenho um problema similar. Desligar a tv à noite usando as configurações de suspensão da tv é muito complicado de acessar, então configurei uma rotina usando o aplicativo Alexa no meu iPhone para desligar a tv 30 minutos depois de dizer à Alexa que vou dormir. Na próxima vez que a TV for ligada, ela não terá som. A única maneira de consertar é desconectar a TV e conectá-la novamente.

Open ticket in LG, I did that and they said they passed it on to technical support, who knows if more people do it they'll solve it with a firmware.

One thing I noticed if you turn on the TV with voice command, this problem tends to decrease, say turn on the TV, then volume 15 (example) doing this, it stopped being silent for a while.

If your LG TV keeps going to Alexa, there could be several reasons for this issue. Here are some potential solutions:
  • Check your TV's settings: Make sure that the TV is not set up to automatically launch Alexa when it turns on. You can usually find this setting in the TV's settings menu under "Alexa" or "Voice Control." Disable this feature and see if it resolves the issue.
  • Disable Alexa on your TV: If you don't use Alexa on your TV, consider disabling the feature altogether. You can usually do this in the TV's settings menu under "Alexa" or "Voice Control."

If the issue persists, then this might help you -

      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)
      Also tried:
      "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?

      I have a Sonos ARC Center Speaker connected to the HDMI eARC port, when this happens bluetooth function on TV does not stay activated, is there a solution?

      I have a Marantz Cinema 70s (Version  3400-8281-E054-8790-DTS Version and an LG G29 83"(03.33.65)which has propatly an HDMI handshake problem.

      Both devices have Arc/eARC turned on/off and the HDMI cable (2.1) is connected to the ARC/eARC output on the Marantz and to the HDMI2 Arc/eARC input on the LG.

      I can't get sound from the Web OS / Amazon Prime transferred to my Marantz...I have to switch manually the TV to speakers from the TV.  It can't be.
      With all other devices connected to the Marantz, the sound works perfectly.
      I spoken allready to the German Marantz  and also to LG Support. Marantz told me it was known that there could be a handshake problem. I should deactivate eARC on both the Marantz and the LG and then switch it back on first on the Marantz and then on the TV.

      LG told me to unplug the TV for 2 minutes.

      Does anyone have any ideas what I can do? Maybe I have overlooked some important settings.

      thx for your help & advises in advance !
