Compatibility of Magic Remote Controls with LG TV models
Types LG remote control
LG makes two types of remote controls for TVs.
- A universal remote control, LG calls it Magic Remote control. This remote control, in addition to switching channels, helps to visualize the TV control. Its principle of operation is similar to that of a computer mouse. You can also use this remote control to control the TV by voice. The Magic remote control communicates with the TV using bluetooth. One condition for using the Magic remote control is that the TV must be equipped with a Bluetooth module.
- Standard remote control. This remote control is suitable for all TVs and can be used to change channels and work with Smart TV. But it does not support voice control and space pointer control. This remote control does not need to be set up and works with any LG TV from 2010 onwards. The TV is controlled by infrared waves.

LG has not changed the look of its Magic Remote since 2016. In 2021, the remote was redesigned and new features were added. Until 2019, LG changed the protocol for connecting the Magic Remote to the TV each year. The 2019-2020 Magic remote is compatible with TVs from 2017. The new remote requires a software update for the TV to work with an older TV. In 2021, the new MR21 remote is compatible with 2019-2020 TVs. Given the large number of remotes produced as replacements for the original remote, it is advisable to pay attention to the compatibility with your TV when buying the remote.
Magic remote LG model numbers
LG used to make magic remote controls with model numbers like the AN-MR300. You should have known that the MR300 model is for 2012 TVs and the AN-MR600 model is for 2016 TVs. As of 2015, the remote control model number was also designated as AN-MR15 to make it easier to understand. Both new and old Magic Remote model numbers were used.
As of 2018, LG is only using the new remote control designation for all countries. The AN-MR18BA remote control model for 2018 TVs, AN-MR19BA for 2019 TVs has become clearer. AN-MR20GA remote control for 2020. AN-MR21** Magic remote for 2021 TVs.
What do the letters at the end of the model number of the Magic remote mean?
For example, remote control AN-MR20GA, what do the letters GA mean? GA is a modification of the remote control, the remote control has buttons for quick access to certain commands or streaming services. For example, in many countries popular streaming services Netflix, Amazon, the TV set is equipped with a remote control AN-MR20GA, this remote control has a button for quick access to these services, on the other modification of the remote control may be a Youtube button. If in some country some other streaming services are popular, there can be made a separate button for them and it will be another modification of the remote control. Note that the TV will work with any AN-MR20 remote control regardless of the modification.
Replacing the Magic remote control
In stores you can find a large number of remote controls, the description of which mentions a replacement remote control, for example LG AN-MR19BA. It means that this remote control is not original. It is necessary to carefully study what TVs this remote control is suitable for and what functions it supports. Very often such remotes do not support voice control.
