SoundBar 5 Remote Programming - Apps on an LG TV

No problems connecting my SoundBar 5 and for the most part programming my other devices.  However, my LG smart TV has a button (white button with a picture of a home) to bring up the built-in apps (Netflix, Amazon, Hulu, etc).


I cannot find any documentation or instructions on how I might access those apps using my Bose remote.  None of the buttons on the remote bring up the app menu.  The following doesn't work:


1. The menu button brings up the TV menu for settings, not applications.  

2. The globe button does nothing.

3. The multicolored function buttons do nothing.


Any ideas?

I have a Bose Soundtouch 300 and new LG 65 OLED C7.  I use the LG remote for all of the Smart TV functions.  It has the on-screen mouse pointer thing that any other remote is not going to have.

Hi brianleestone,


Thanks for sharing your post. I'm sorry to hear that the built-in apps function isn't translating over to the Bose remote. Curiously, have you tried cycling through additional internal LG remote codes, to see if another code may work better? Here are the full programming steps. Pay special attention to step 8. Repeat as necessary until you find that ALL functions seem to work.


Let us know if this helps!


Best regards,
