Hi there, hope someone can help me. Bought a new LG tv which comes with a magic remote. It works fine with the tv, but refuses to sync with my TiVo box. I cannot see the TV guide and my planner unless I use my old Virgin remote. I have phoned Virgin, who as usual were most unhelpful, and the only answer I got was that it is impossible to sync the two, as they do not support the technology!
Is this correct? I he the TiVo 500GB box. I asked about a V6 box, but they said I can't have one and that wouldn't work either!
The Virgin Tivo and V6 remotes can operate the volume and power on/off of most TVs. I only use the LG remote if I want to access the LG smart features. The Tivo control was infra red only, the V6 remote has rf and infra red. Not tried to use the ? LG control to control the V6.
My Samsung remote and V6 remote can both control the V6, but only the Samsung remote can access the TV smart features.
My experience is with old fashioned TV remotes as I am not a fan of the magic type of remote.
I no longer have an old style Tivo as it was mind numbingly slow. You have to have Virgin broadband to have a V6, I think with a minimum speed of 100M?
If you upgrade to the V6 you get apps like YouTube and BBC iPlayer which actually load and run properly plus Amazon Prime Video. With the V6 remote paired to the LG would you still need to use the magic remote?
