Forums : LG WebOS TV Control
This page last changed on Feb 22, 2016 by ptruman.
It's been a while - but I'm still here/lurking.
Current project is to forcibly get a 2014/2015 LG WebOS based TV to talk to OpenRemote. This is not 100% possible, as whilst it has an ethernet socket, when the TV is in standby, it shuts down connections, so I'm still reliant on IR (or HDMI CEC) to wake it up.
However, when it's up, it has two forms of communication - both websocket based.
Anyway, I'm piggybacking off the shoulders of others, as I've found a node based module to run most of the controls, and I've put some simple "bash" wrappers around them to make them executable via "Shell executable" in OpenRemote.
However, the cursor (left/right/up/down) was very slow, as it required a two stage connection - so I've now written a small node http listener that holds a websocket open, and you can make one single HTTP request to it for a command, which is speeding things up.
If there is any interest, let me know - I'm very much still hacking this together but am willing to share!
