    This is for my brand new 65 LG Oled (B7). The remote lags horribly. Often times it works fine for just a few seconds and stops. At times does not respond for 10 seconds or more. I do not think this is normal.

    I suspected interference so moved my router and unplugged other radio sources nearby but it makes no difference.

    Resetting the remote does not help.

    Am i missing something, or am I simply unlucky and this remote must be replaced?

    It's not normal. The magic remote on my B6 is really responsive and doesn't lag at all or drop out.

    Mine lags occasionally as well since firmware updates in particular in Netflix and Amazon apps. 55EG960V (2015 model).

    Are these remotes IR and need direct LOS to operate properly? I was under impression they are either wifi or BT.
