[LG Web OS] How to open settings (or activate MultiView)?

I want to automate some more things on my new LG OLED (OLED77C29LD).

To save energy/mony I want to decrease the picture size.
Sometimes I am sitting closer to the TV and the picture does not have to bee full screen.
So I actrvate MultiView in combination with SceenShare as the other picture.
After a few seconds the second picture gets black and leaves me with a single picture only a quarter of the fulls size.
This takes about 50 Watt instead of 75 Watt.

So my goal is to automate this steps.

I want to send these button presses to activate MultiView.

  • settings
  • up
  • up
  • up
  • up
  • up
  • Enter
  • down
  • Enter

Unfortunately there seems to be no settings button in this binding.

Is there any way to add this button or another way to open the settings menu?

I don’t know anything about the LG Web OS Binding, but if there’s no native solution then you might be able to use a Broadlink RM4 controller.

Look at the channel rcButton in binding documentation.

I did.

But there is no button called SETTINGS.

Maybe there is a a way for me to find more available buttons with try-and-erro or in the debug logs.
That is why I am asking for help. :slight_smile:

You can probably use the application channel to first open the settings.

I do not think the settings count as an application.

In fact I am talking about the quick settings menu on top of the playback.

I have a LG webos tv version 5.4.1 and there is a setting app, that will open the settings menu.

Just link a string item to the application channel and all the available options will be populated by the binding

I did not expect so many available options…

There is even a com.webos.app.multiviewsettings application which makes it even easier for me.

Here is a complete list of my TV, in case anybody is wondering.
