Hey there! 📺 So, you’ve got an LG TV and you’re wondering how to jam to your shows using your AirPods, right? Well, you’re in luck! Just like you, I was super curious about how to make this happen, and after some cool detective work, I found out some pretty simple ways to get the job done. Trust me; it’s simpler than you think!
The absolute easiest way? Use the LG sound sync/Bluetooth feature that’s built right into your LG TV. But hey, if you want some other options, don’t sweat it! You can also pair up using gadgets like an Apple TV, Roku streaming stick, or even a Firestick.
Are you excited to find out how? Let’s jump right in! 🚀
Connecting Airpods to LG TV Directly
You can totally connect your AirPods to your LG TV without needing any extra gadgets! Yep, that’s right! And it doesn’t even matter which version of AirPods you have. Pretty cool, huh?
Let me break it down a bit. If you’ve got the 1st generation AirPods (you know, the ones from way back in 2016), they come with something called Bluetooth 4.2. And your super cool LG TV? It likely has the newer Bluetooth 5.0. But here’s the awesome part: Bluetooth 5.0 plays nice with older versions, so you’re all set!
Alright, are you ready to get started? Here we go:
1. Grab that Remote! 📺 Pick up your LG TV remote and hit the settings button. You’ll see some options pop up on the screen.
2. Finding the “Sound Out” Option 🎵 On your TV screen, look for the “Sound Out” option and keep pressing until you find “LG Sound Sync/Bluetooth”. You’ll then see “Device Selection” right below it.
3. Let’s Get Those AirPods Ready! 🎧 This part’s fun! Put your AirPods into their charging case but keep the lid open. Now, press and hold the little button on the back (that’s the setup button) until you see the light start to flash white. This means your AirPods are saying, “Hey, I’m ready to connect!”
4. Time to Pair 🔄 On your TV, you should see your AirPods pop up under the available devices. Click on them, and voilà! You’re now rocking your AirPods with your TV.
Psst! Quick Tip: Want to go back to your TV’s speakers later? Easy-peasy. Just head to the “Sound Out” tab in the settings again and select “Internal TV Speaker”. And just like that, you’re back to your TV’s normal sound.
Connecting Airpods to LG TV using Apple TV
Got an Apple TV device? Sweet! 🍎 Here’s some great news – it’s not just for watching shows or movies. You can also use it to connect your AirPods to your LG TV. And hey, don’t confuse this with the Apple TV app that might be on your LG TV. We’re talking about the actual Apple TV box.
Alright, let’s get to it!
1. Setting Up Apple TV with Your LG TV 📺 First things first! Grab an HDMI cable and connect your Apple TV box to your LG TV.
2. Let’s Pair the AirPods! 🎧
- Automagic Connection: If your AirPods and Apple TV are buddies (meaning they’re on the same iCloud or Apple ID), they’ll connect on their own. Magic, right?
- Manual Pairing: If they aren’t already friends, don’t worry! Just open the Apple TV app on your LG TV. Navigate to Settings > Remotes and Devices > Bluetooth. Remember the pairing trick with the AirPods? Press and hold the setup button until they’re ready to connect. You should see them pop up in the Apple TV app. Give them a tap to connect.
Wondering why you’d want to go through an Apple TV? Well, apart from helping with the AirPods connection, it gives you this mind-blowing sound experience with Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos. It’s like having a mini-theater right in your living room!
Connecting Airpods to LG TV using Roku
Connecting AirPods to LG TV using Fire Stick
Time for another method: the Fire Stick! 📺🔥 But heads up, this one’s a bit trickier and might not be everyone’s first choice, especially if you love controlling your volume.
Why the Fire Stick Isn’t the Best Buddy for Your AirPods:
The main hiccup is the volume control, or the lack of it. When you’re streaming with the Fire Stick, it doesn’t give you an easy-peasy way to adjust the volume in your AirPods. But hey, if you’re up for the challenge, let’s dive in!
1. Getting Started with Fire Stick Remote: Pick up that Fire Stick remote and press settings. Your TV screen will show the Fire Stick’s settings.
2. Navigating to Bluetooth Settings: Use the remote to scroll on over to Controllers & Bluetooth Devices. Then, select Other Bluetooth Devices.
3. Calling All AirPods! 🎧 Time to get those AirPods ready for action. Pop them in the charging case, press the setup button, and wait for the pairing mode to kick in.
4. Making the Connection: You’ll see your AirPods listed on your LG TV screen under available devices. Give them a click, and…congrats! They’re now paired.
Remember that volume issue I mentioned earlier? If you’re not a fan of blasting sound in your ears, there’s a workaround. You can install an app called “Precise Volume” onto your Fire Stick. You’ll need to load its APK (that’s a fancy word for an app’s installer file). Once it’s installed, you’ll have a bit more control over how loud or soft your shows sound.
