LG Simplilink with PS4

I have bought a LG Smart TV and as you will see from the photo's, I have turned on HDMI Device Link on the PS4 and also the Simplilink on the TV.  However whenever I turn my PS4 on, the TV does not come on with it.  Is there something I am missing?

Re: LG Simplilink with PS4

Hi David,

Thanks for the response. That's pretty crap, I don't always play my PS4 when I switch my TV on, so kinda glad that what ur saying is supposed to happen isn't working either.  When I press the PS button on my controller, my Sony TV comes on, but if that's not the way Simplilink works, then so be it.

It's a bit of a hit and miss the the PS4 whan it comes to that as I've got a PS4 Pro and I've got to turn my LG tv on before I turn on the console.

It's different with my Xbox Series X as it turns on my tv no problem.

Re: LG Simplilink with PS4

Some misinformation in here. You can mix brands for HDMI interaction. For example, my Xbox One, One X and Series X are configured in the console settings to turn my TV on when I turn the console on first and TV off when I turn the console off and this is exactly what happens. The TV is a 2013 Sony LCD. I don't have the HDMI control features enabled on the TV, because I don't want it to work the other way around for my setup, i.e. TV on first does not turn the console on.
