Can you use a remote (IR) with this monitor?
Does this monitor have IR remote capabilites? Or option to plug in IR Receiver? for volume control and quick Input change.
Hi MarshMellow. The LG 25” Class 21:9 UltraWide™ IPS Monitor (25.0" Diagonal), Model # 25UM64-S does not have an infrared eye on it that enables control with a remote nor does it have that option to plug one in. It does have a joystick on it that allows for quick access to the main menu where you can adjust the monitor volume, enter the PBP menu to display the screens of two input modes on one monitor, configure screen settings, or adjust the color for comfortable text file reading...^IFV

Volume is not working
I am using a Surface Pro 3 which is utilizing Windows 8.1. This is connected to the LG monitor by an HDMI chord connected to a Mini port usb.

Hello greenmachine. Thank you for your inquiry with regards to not being able to get any volume from your tablet when connected to the LG 25” Class 21:9 UltraWide™ IPS Monitor (25.0" Diagonal), Model # 25UM6-S monitor.

Can 2 computers side by side share this monitor?
I have user A who sits at the desk.
He needs user B to be able to turn on and use her computer while he uses his, in a shared space on the monitor.
Both users operating separate computers at the same time.
Sure. Using the pbp mode, if they are able to plug in 2 of the 4 available inputs at the same time. There is a DVI-D, a Display Port and 2 HDMI slots. I currently use my HDMI slots for my console and my pc. You will only be able to use sound from one or the other, not both. But external speakers or headphones can solve that if that is an issue.

Can you play a game console on one half and computer on the other half?
Meaning, can I plug my XBOX ONE console to it and my computer and have both up on the screen?
I frequently use my ps3 and my pc at the same time. I have them both using the HDMI slots, the ps3 loads as if on a 4:3 monitor, but looks just fine.
I set my pc resolution to 1280x1024. Everything looks just fine at that res, and it is the best ratio I have tested so far.

I have an LG wide monitor for my computer. When I turn it on, it has DVI on the upper right hand side of my monitor. Should it? What does DVI mean?
The monitor turns on at the lower right hand side of the monitor. When it was new, I probably touched one of the nearby stuff & caused this problem. I have asked many people about it, but they don't know your products & couldn't help me. Please help me!!
We appreciate your interest in this monitor. The DVI notation simply states that the DVI, or Digital Video Interface, is the active Input Jack being used. This is normal operation.

Size of power connection
I need a longer power cable for my monitor. Can you tell me the size of the DC coaxial connector?
I apologize, but no; we have no recommendations for accessories other than those originally provided with the monitor.

Brightness and contrast
I am trying to adjust the brightness and contrast but I cannot find any buttons to adjust them on the monitor.
The directions do not show them either.
To view the On Screen Display (OSD) Menu, press the joystick button at the bottom of the monitor and then enter the MENU. Configure the options by moving the joystick up/down/left/right. Select the EASY CONTROL option. The first 2 functions of this menu are BRIGHTNESS and CONTRAST. This information can be found on pages 27-28 of your owner’s manual.
