What People Are Saying

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent remote for certain 2018 LG HDTVs Other reviews seem not to focus on this actual remote, which works perfectly with the 2018 43 inch LG 4K HDTV that we purchased. It works just as well as the LG Magic Remote that came with our 65 inch model. Purchasing a silicone case from a third party vendor makes this a near-perfect remote control in my view.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works well My issue is that I need a replacement remote and it's not listed on the LG site parts/accessories store site, and Encompass can't find it either (AN-MR18BA). This model does show on the LG site under TVs/Accessories/remotes, but you can't order it. It directs you to an on-line retailer in Florida (Jetson) who doesn't stock, and would have to order it through Encompass. So I appear to be stuck without a remote for a 2018 TV I've had less than 6 months.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Great when it’s working Purchased our Oled TV Feb 2018. Remote was great and all of a sudden Amazon button would not work. So started using recent button to launch Amazon app. Will today nothing would work so figure battery was dead. Changed the battery and nothing. Called LG they had me run through a bunch of trouble shooting with TV and remote and nothing. Told me remote was out of warranty and I would have to buy a new one. Very disappointed considering it is a top of the line TV and remote. Very pricey.

Can this control an older Bose surround sound plus cable device?

I just purchased an LG UHD AI ThinQ Model 55UK63. Is this TV compatible with an LG Magic Remote? What I got with the TV was the standard LG Remote.

I was told it not possible to return to the previous channel on the magic remote. Is this true? Is this true, if so it sure seems like a step backwords rather than a magical step forward.
