Re: V360 and LG magic remote

Anyone get the voice activation to work?

Ie "Hi LG, watch BBC News"? Didn't really work with V6 but seems even worse on 360 box.

You don’t need to say ‘hi lg’. Just press the mic button and say ‘bbc1’ or ‘itv’ or if your watching a recording and want to skip adverts say ‘skip 4 minutes’ etc

Re: V360 and LG magic remote

Hi,

thanks for the excellent walk through, have an issue though.

does the 360 box need to be in line of sight?

I was under the impression it was HDMI CEC?

Remote works but only if box is exposed and not hidden?

My experience is it has to be line of sight so I assume the LG MR is connecting via IR and as my cabinet has passthrough glass it works.  However if I switch the TV to the hdmi input connected to the virgin tv360 box , it asks if I want to turn the box on and if I select yes the box turns on, on most occasions. I suspect though that this is still an IR instruction direct from the remote rather that an HDMI-CEC instruction from the tv. I am assuming  that on those occasions it does not work it is because the line of site is blocked.as family members tend to leave objects in the direct line space between my seating position and the tv360 box!!!

Attempted voice control of tv360 via LG MR voice to no avail. Although I suspected it wouldnt work anyhow. Not a deal breaker as I dont know how it could cross platform with voice and so didnt expect it to work.

Anyone else had any luck with voice control of tv360 via LG Magic Remote voice management.

Re: V360 and LG magic remote

My LG TV is on webOS 4.3. I didn't have Ziggo available to choose from, I guess you need webOS 5 for it to work.

Hi RM 

If i am reading this right, you need to type in ZIGGO it will not appear as an option in the drop-down menu

The default options are usually virgin ( region), sky etc.

As Raquel said you need to search for ziggo in the search box, it should then appear as a selectable option.

However, myself and Raquel are on webos 5.0 so it could be different for webos 4.3
