Rated 2 out of 5 by from POOR DESIGN - MISSED THE MARK! LG, now come on, no fast forward or rewind on a universal remote? Have the designers ever used a remote control before? I would think that would be standard on the first design pass. I am pretty disappointed by this remote's functionality in general. The cursor movement can be challenging in addition to what i mentioned previously. If I could (can't find the box) I would return it because I still have to use two remote controls. Nice ideas but the overall design wasn't well developed in my opinion.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome remote! Very intuitive and lots of features built in. Also works with our DirecTV DVR, so we don’t need to use the DTV remote.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Difficult to use This remote is totally alien to the DirectV remote used on the last LG tv. It disconnected the Directv remote and satilite box andis there was no hard manual to clarify its use. It is hard to evaluate an item when you can't program it.

This remote is compatible with 55UK6100PLB ?

Asked by: pjrm
Regrettably, Model # 55UK6100PLB is not a model that was released in the U.S. and our offices here in the U.S. do not have information on it. It is a 2018 LG 4K model that features LG's ThinQ® AI technology so it probably is compatible with the LG Magic Remote Control for Select 2018 LG AI ThinQ® Smart TV, Model # AN-MR18BA. Please contact the LG Support Center in your country to confirm if it is compatible with the magic remote...^IFV
