Ready? Simply press the Pointer-Gesture button on your Magic Remote to initiate Setup Wizard, and follow these easy steps.
- Click on the Center wheel button on the remote to pair your Magic Remote with your TV.
- Select your TV environment. 'HOME' is probably best suited for just about everyone. Then choose your STANDBY MODE preference.
- Choose how you're connected to the Internet: ethernet cable or wireless.
- Since this is the LG Google TV, you'll want to enter your Google account. Enter your Google email address, or create a free account if you don't have one.
- Enter your ZIP code to make sure you get the correct programming for your area.
Now, we're ready to set up your TV service. Indicate the appropriate service category—for the majority of owners, it's Option 1—having cable, satellite or other TV service with a set-top box. Indicate which port your set top box is connected to and the type of device you're setting up. Choose your TV service provider based on your zip code. Select your device manufacturer. Finally, let's connect the IR blaster (more info on that below).
Connecting the IR Blaster
Now, you'll set up the IR blaster, a cable with sensors that's included with your TV. In case you're not familiar with the role of an IR Blaster, it lets you control channels and audio options with just your Magic Remote. Control multiple devices with a single remote!
Connecting to Your Set-Top Box
- Connect the IR Blaster Cable to the TV, as seen in the image above, and place the transmitter in front of the Set-top box.
- Go to Home > All Apps > Settings > Video input > Add device manually.
- Select a device and 'Next'. The TV signal playing is displayed.
- Select your device type.
- Select your TV service provider (when device type is Cable box, Satellite receiver or DVR).
- Select the manufacturer of the selected device.
- Check if the IR Blaster is firmly plugged into the IR Blaster port and is placed near the remote sensor of your device and select 'Next'.
- Select 'Send POWER' or Press 'CH up/down' to test the code. If the code is not matched, select 'No, try next code' to find the corresponding code. If the code is matched, select 'Yes'.
- Select 'Finish.' Your device is registered.

Audio Amplifier Control Setup
This step allows your Magic Remote to control a full array of audio devices, such as a home theater system and soundbar.
- Connect the IR Blaster Cable to the TV. Place the transmitter in front of the Audio amplifier.
- Go to Home > All Apps > Settings > Option > Audio amplifier.
- Select "Yes, I have an Audio amplifier" and "Next."
- Select the manufacturer of the receiver.
- Test the code. If the code is not matched, select "No, try next code" to find the corresponding code.
- Select 'Yes'. Your device is registered.
- Now, press Fn + 5 to test the code. And select 'Next'.
- Select the default output between Audio amplifier and TV speakers. And Select 'Done'. The setting is finished.
Your IR Blaster can work with a variety of devices. For a Code List, refer to your Owner's Manual (pages 66 – 68).
