If your LG tv has a wireless port this would work with it. My model is not listed in the supported list, but has the wireless port and this thing worked. I have 47LW5700 from Costco.

See mod to make it work for most monitors and televisions with HDMI input, https://plus.google.com/u/1/101948760925084043079/posts/btdqMZqCzEA


In a nutshell...
Quote from Flat-Line View Post :
Add a power supply and splice it to the fat + and - wires (black and red), then it'll work on any hdmi input.
If you want to switch inputs via serial follow this guide on AVSforum:

### Mini FAQ
------------------------------------------

Is this a good price?
Google Shopping says very much so. [google.com]

What does this do?
This will simply send a video and/or audio signal wirelessly from a transmitting devices to a receiver.

What inputs that the transmitting device have?
(aka - "Can I use this with a...?" Part I)
  • HDMI
  • Component AV Input
  • PC Input (VGA / RGB PC)
  • 3.5mm Audio Input
What output does the receiver have?
(aka - "Can I use this with a...?" Part II)
The receiver is limited to only a HDMI device.
This means that the television, monitor, or home entertainment receiver that you are trying to send a signal too needs to have a HDMI.


Can I use a laptop with this?
If your laptop has either a VGA [google.com] or HDMI connection, then yes. You can use the 3.5mm audio input to send an audio signal along with the VGA connection (HDMI does audio and video already).
If you run a Apple product with a display port, then you will need an adapter [google.com].


How does this work?
These devices creates a ad-hoc 5GHz wireless connection and send data over that connection.


What is the range?
The manufacture has specified 50 feet.


Can I use the switching feature if I modify this to work with non LG NetCast televisions?
Not 100% sure, but it doesn't sound like you can.

Not sure if this was ask already, but how do you switch between multiple inputs? Are those buttons on the front of the transmitter box? Thanks in advance.

*edit* Never mind, I just read that the front panel of the box has input select button.
In for one since it seems cheap and something to mess with. Thanks.

Those are listed as used units. $12 shipping.
I just received one I ordered from this seller. I took a gamble based on the picture as it appeared sealed-- it also said in another part of the auction that it was "new". Low and behold-- got it today, factory sealed, for 16 bucks shipped, no tax. They listed more, so take a shot!!

had anyone figured out how to control input selection from the dongle end?

I'm assuming the 20-pin connector at the dongle end is more than just power. The TV is sending it a signal to tell it what input to switch to. If anyone has a 2010 LG TV care to try to intercept the signal so see what we need to do to get it to work truly universally. Of course requires some know how.

So what do you think of it? I just bought one from that seller and hope I get a new one also.

I really didn't need this but seems like a fun toy to tinker with!

I received mine today.

I hooked it up, Got the picture in about a minute, from plugging it in.

My only complaint is, i am unable to get the sound working through it to my tv with my macbookpro using hdmi. I will play with it some more and see if i can get it to work.

My LG 47LM4600 doesn't have the wireless control port.

Now I wish it did.

There is a link on the first page and in the wiki to a forum that already has done the leg work for this.

I do not know much about MacBooks, but in Windows you would have to set the default audio device to the HDMI port if Windows didn't do it automatically. To trouble shoot this real quick, just plug the MacBook directly into the television and see if you get sound that way. You'll then know if it's the OS or the device.

You get both the transmitter and receiver. It's a pretty good bargain.

I skimmed through that, so I might have missed something. But as I understand it, the hack is done via the RS232 service port on the transmitter side where all your devices plug in.

In its intended function, the remote of a 2010 LG TV can control the input at the transmitter by pointing at the TV. The TV sends a command to the connected dongle/receiver via its "wireless control" port, which sends the input selection back to the transmitter wirelessly, which changes the input. At least that's my understanding.

So what I'm getting at is to hijack the control at the dongle end, instead of at the transmitter (which in most situations is hidden out of view from where the TV is).

Gotcha, but I would think that one of the purposes of connecting it to a compatible LG set would be that the IR input would be handled by the television and not the receiver. My guess is that there would not be a native way to switch the inputs with a remote since the receiver wouldn't have any IR or RF components built in.

Just got the casio projector, can't wait to see if I can send a cable signal to it without having to run the wire.

You are correct in that you would need a solution for a IR signal.
That's pretty simple if you know how to use a PIC or arduino micro. You can probably assign some buttons on an universal remote as input selection, and the micro will translate the IR into a command to the dongle.

At the transmitter end, you would still need something similar to "talk" to the RS232 service port. So either way, u'd need to do some modding. I feel controlling at the dongle end would be a more seamless implementation.
