    Any clues if it's possible (even if in a hacky way) to communicate with/read/set LG OLED TVs' settings via DDC ( interface (a.k.a. control monitor settings via your computer)? Couldn't find any info about this at places as and nor any other specialized forums. Appreciated!

    You could try using tools like MonitorControl. The Mac doesn't have HDMI-CEC, so you generally have to adjust the Volume via the monitor itself. That's why you can't "control" the Volume by default. Try your luck with the tool though, it might recognize your monitor and you'd be able to control Brightness/Volume via Mac!

    Check MonitorControl, that's what I am using with my LG 29WK600. It's a bit quirky (when adjusting volume, both macOS and display create popups that show the new volume), but it gets the job done. :)
