I just received my LG new TV and Magic Remote (AN-MR650A) yesterday and have been VERY disappointed with the documentation provided with both. I've struggled to find hidden "How To's" that are not even mentioned in any documentation. One issue I haven't found resolved is how I get my Magic Remote to turn on and off my Onkyo Receiver or eve how I get the Remote's Volume button to adjust the receiver sound? HELP!

    I've been using google and YouTube to learn about my magic remote. I've set up my universal control for my sound bar but can't get the magic remote to turn it on. I'm pretty sure I can do it if I can figure out how to get the "on screen remote" to appear. It popped up once but I have no idea how.

    The little remote button on the magic remote does it. To the right of the zero key.  Hit that and the on screen remote appears. When the remote bar shows at the bottom of the screen, there is a selector on the left hand side where it tells you what mode you are in.  Click the little arrow and you will have the option for your sound device.  Select it and it will change the on screen remote mode from tv or cable box or whatever to the receiver.  This will include power on and off.

    I don't see those arrows. I am trying to connect my Amazon Firestick remote to work with my LG TV series 6 nano. My firestick settings tell me I can do it IF I have the IR code for my TV. Where can I find that? Thanks.
