Multi View function for HDMI1 and 2 LG 43UH6030

by ChazB2017 / January 27, 2017 9:38 PM PST

Hi, I'm trying to use my Nvidia Shield TV which is connected to HDMI 1 and my laptop, which is connected to HDMI 2 in the Multi View Function on my LG Smart TV. One side of the screen will show either the HDMI hookups but the other screen only gives the option for Live TV or AV connection...the HDMI connections are all grayed out. Is there away to get those so they are not grayed out and be able to use the HDMI connections instead of Live TV?

TV App and HDMI input?
by Yolo18 / December 5, 2017 3:38 PM PST

Can you use the multi view with a TV app like Netflix and an HDMI input instead of 2 HDMI inputs?

That sounds right.

Maybe I read it wrong but that's what it said it would do in the manual.

But it doesn't work that way

Yes, that is what it says on the online manual but it doesn't seem to work that way when you try it in real time. Even LG support sends the same instructions as the online manual but you cannot hookup 2 hdmi devices and have them be in multi view.

Now I'm confused.

At your top post what you wrote happened looks to be what I expected as well as what I scanned in the manuals.

If you feel the manual is incorrect, back to LG to correct that.

Ah I see. It works if you turn off Simplink in the HDMI-CEC settings in the sound settings

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
