By Jim Nolte
I have connected a hearing aid streamer using a optical cable. Then paired my hearing aids.
when I switch the TV to Audio Optical only, no sound.
hearing aids pair with iPhone, hearing aid app, but I cannot figure this out. Is there a TV setting I am missing?
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.

After more than 25 years of providing people in India with innovative products, LG has become a household name in the country by building its reputation as the top producer of home appliances. Last year, the company was even named by TRA Research as the Most Trusted Brand in the refrigerator and washing machine categories as well as the air conditioner and microwave oven categories, which not only suggests LG India has retained trust and leadership, but also enhanced its portfolio in this vital market.
So, to perform its duties as an industry leader while reaffirming its commitment to the government’s ‘Make in India’ mission, LG has invested a total of approximately 24 million USD to open a new manufacturing line for its premium side-by-side refrigerators in Pune, India.
Launched in 2014 by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, the ‘Make in India’ initiative encourages companies to manufacture products in India in an effort to transform the nation into a global design and manufacturing hub. With the Indian government hopeful of this move being a game changer for the local economy, many companies have already announced their strong support for the movement. For LG, it’s been less of a dramatic shift in production as the company is already manufacturing most of its products at two plants located in Pune and Greater Noida, India.
Adding a new line to LG’s Pune facility is not only a step forward for transforming India’s self-reliance for the better, but also for addressing the country’s growing consumer demand and expanding the company’s portfolio here. Last year, the United Nations reported that India is set to surpass China as the world’s most populous country in 2023. Moreover, according to

Powered by its demographic advantage, some analysts say that India has the potential to become one of the world’s largest economies in terms of purchasing power. Strengthening LG’s position as the top home appliance maker, this initiative will give a welcome boost to the brand’s product leadership.
Equipped with advanced technologies and machineries, the upgraded Pune campus can produce 200,000 side-by-side refrigerator units every year as well as a large number of double-door and single-door refrigerators.
To celebrate the occasion, LG held an offline event on January 17 with Lee Hyun-uk, senior vice president and head of the Kitchen Solution business unit of LG Electronics Home Appliance and Air Solution Company, Jeon Hong-ju, managing director at LG Electronics India, Ji Hyoung-sub, director of Home Appliances & Air Conditioners at LG Electronics India, as well as other senior executives, influential journalists and representatives of key trade partners.

Here, attendees could witness the unveiling of side-by-side refrigerators manufactured in India and enjoy an exclusive tour of the state-of-the-art manufacturing facility.
Also, the local manufacturing line has not gone unnoticed by the Government of India. In a letter addressed to LG India, Shri Piyush Goyal, the Minister of Commerce & Industry, praised the company for aligning so well with the ‘Make in India’ initiative and commended it for its strong contribution towards a ‘New India.’
LG is confident that with its skilled workforce and advanced technologies, the newest manufacturing line in Pune will contribute to the success of the ‘Make in India’ initiative as it delivers its cutting-edge refrigerators to more consumers nationwide.

LG’s international voyage of innovation and creativity, the LG OLED Art project, is coming to Frieze Los Angeles 2023 which is available at the Santa Monica Airport from February 16-19. The company’s exhibition, titled LG Art Lab with Barry x Ball @ LG OLED Lounge, offers visitors unique experiences spanning the real and virtual worlds. At the center of it all is the work of Brooklyn-based sculptor Barry x Ball, which will be showcasing on LG’s superb, self-lit OLED screens.
LG boasts 10 years of experience in producing premium OLED TVs. The company introduced the world’s first big-screen OLED TV in 2013, bringing consumers a whole new level of picture quality and ushering in a new era in the TV industry. Since then, LG OLED, the leader of the global premium TV market, has continued to provide the most realistic images and the most immersive viewing experiences.
In addition to becoming the preferred TV of millions of consumers worldwide, LG OLED has become the favored digital canvas for some of today’s most innovative artists, especially those comfortable with working in the digital medium. Not only does LG deliver the power of digital art at LG Art project events, it also enables LG Smart TV users to admire and own their favorite digital artworks via the LG Art Lab app.
LG Art Lab is a Hedera-based, fully interactive digital marketplace that allows users to trade NFT art from major artworld names and up-and-coming practitioners. Constantly striving to improve the user experience and make digital art more accessible, LG Art Lab has adopted Blade Wallet, an enterprise-grade Web3 wallet known for its security, speed and scalability. Blade Wallet enables art lovers to simply and securely purchase NFT artworks on LG TV’s innovative digital art platform and is available as an app for Android and Apple mobile devices as well as a Google Chrome web extension.
At Frieze LA, LG’s new ultra-large, ultra-high-definition OLED evo models, including the 97-inch G3 and 83-inch C3, along with Lifestyle Screen products, such as the LG OLED Objet Collection Easel and Pose, will bring Barry x Ball’s NFT artworks to life. The exhibit features a new series of 39-second-long kinetic NFTs and a 24-karat gold-plated sculpture. A multidisciplinary master, Ball continues to utilize traditional and 21st century techniques to reassess and breathe new life into classical and modern sculptures.
Ball’s NFT sculptures are inspired by the artist’s in-process sculptures of Pope John Paul II, and are based on four different metals: black steel, gold, copper and silver. The self-lit pixels of LG’s OLED TVs allow one to fully appreciate the intent of the artist, revealing the most minute details through vibrant, accurate colors, deep blacks and incredible contrast. On the exhibition’s opening day, Barry x Ball’s sculptural NFT art has been dropped on LG Art Lab.
After the conclusion of the LG OLED Art project exhibition at Frieze Los Angeles, LG will continue its partnership with Frieze throughout the year, demonstrating its ongoing commitment to art and showcasing the outstanding picture quality of LG OLED.

I am trying to setup my new Phonak my hearing aids TV Connector with my new LG GP2 TV and Sonos Arc sound bar, connected by via the HDMI eArc port. The TV automatically uses the the HDMI eArc port, and that port only. As a result no signal goes through the optical out port of the LG TV.
Is there a way to make the LG TV sound signal simultaneously go out to both the sonud bar via eArc port and to the Phak TV Connector via the optical out port so that I can connect hearing aids to the Phonak TV connector and also use the Sonos Arc soundbar at the same time?
Appreciate any guidance.
