Assigning Smart TV App to remote

My new LG TV has a number of applications (ex. Xfinity Streaming) which do not have buttons assigned on the LG remote. Is there a way I can create a button for these applications on the sevenhugs remote?

  • Hi Rich, you should be able achieve this by utilising custom steps in a TV scene. You can follow this link here for more information.

  • Thanks for the response, but customizing the scene, as far as I can see, does not support recording actions that need to be done using the TV remote’s interaction with the LG applications. I can turn on devices and change inputs, but in my case, I want to turn on the TV, and then chose an application from the LG menu - in this case Xfinity Streaming must be selected with the LG IR device by paging along the menu bar and then selecting the application.

      Custom steps are under test in our pilot program. (Beta testing)


      This version will be released to public by beginning of next year. (January)


      With custom steps you will be able to customize the start sequence of a tv scene, and add IR keys to send. So you will be able to navigate and choose the application you want.

  • Thanks! I’m looking forward to that release!
