LG 47LW579S-ZD and Unicable / Single-cable distribution support?


Novice Member
Hi there,

our family is watching satellite TV via Astra 19.2°E and Hbb-TV via Internet on a rather old LG 47LW579S-ZD from maybe 2012. We would like to use additional devices, but there is only one cable from the dish to our living room and it's difficult to lay additional cables. I wonder if our LG TV supports at least an older Unicable standard like „EN50494“, since it was already defined around 2007/2008? If it’s supported, we may switch to a Unicabe LNB and connect additional devices to the existing cable. But I didn’t found references in the manual...can this function be activated with a software update?
Another option would be to buy a new satellite receiver with Unicable and Hbb-TV support, so we could use the red button from the new device for internet based content.

Thank you for any hints.

Best regards
