Hi guys. A couple of months ago i purchased an LG 42LS5700 and then a magic remote for 2012 models (which works ok). I'm using the US firmware 5.0. The thing is, even though i set the setbox under inputs and select it, the onscreen interface to control it (basically, switching channels and stuff like that) does not show up.
Is this an issue with the setbox (PACE DC550D), the TV, none, both?
Do I understand that the cable from the wall is connected to the Input of a splitter(T connector) and one output is connected to your STB and the other output is connected to your cable modem? If not change it.
I suggest turning both the TV and the STB off and reconnecting the HDMI output from the STB to HDMI1 or another HDMI input connection on the TV. Next turn on the STB and then turn on the TV. Next cycle through the Input selection choices on the TV and leave it on the HDMI input connection that has the HDMI cable from the STB connected.
What does the screen of the TV say?
If you select Info on the TV remote what does it say?
I did what you say, didnt help. I removed the connection from HDMI1 to HDMI4, when turned on the box and then the TV back the TV said "invalid input, choose another" kinda dialogue and selected HDMI4. Same as first, no on-screen control.
Regarding "info" there is no info. in fact, on top right there is a shadowed remote control. Perhaps i'd be able to click it and that would bring the on screen remote, but cant do it.
