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.
I'm having the same issue as the guy here:

seems like a common issue.

No real fix for it.
plugged it into the tv and same issue.

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!
Haven't had a chance to hook it up yet. Will let you know.

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.
fwiw looks like an i2c bus on the receiver side.


personally I would prefer the IR -> serial solution for my setup. in my case all of my equipment sits in a single rack and already has IR distribution wired within.

another reason, we already know and have everything needed to achieve this hack. the design and code is also highly reusable as there are plenty of applications for IR to serial in the HT and HA realms.

I did not know there already exist IR to serial device. Where can I find more info on that?

so you aim your remote at your rack rather than TV? what do you use as a remote to control the serial?

Wondering if someone can help me out. The dongle power/signal cable looks very familiar to me and since it has a note on it saying not to connect to a phone I suspect this connector has been used on older phones. Does anyone know which one? I know this guy posted up the LG connector part but withtout a picture I am not sure if I am getting a bare connector that I need to solder or one with flying leads. I would prefer flying leads so I can wire in the PSU easier. My hope is to either get this LG connector or an old charging cable to cut up rather than the OEM cable.

sorry i did not mean to imply a device existed, only the information needed to build/design one (no need to hack/sniff the i2c on the receiving side). i have done some research in this area in the past because the display i have has rs-232 control, but no IR input. i have some links on my work machine to an atmel attiny suitable for this exact purpose. will try to dig the datasheets up.

I dont have to aim my remote anywhere. the IR distribution in the rack is coupled to a native RF remote. signal from the remote goes to its RF-> IR base station and the base station has independent IR blaster output to be run to each device. because each of the outputs in distinctly addressable i can use any code set i want.

a couple of problems you might run in to with this approach... first, if used for a phone in the past, its likely that the internal wiring uses much thinner gauge wire. secondly its very common for manufacturers to cut costs by only using the wire count they need in a cable that has the potential for more conductors fitted to the connector. with enough bad luck its possible you find the right connector, but because of its wiring layout and lack of full conductor density, you dont have the power and ground lines in place on the right pins.

cut the OEM cable. do it in the middle and you can still retain one end. if worst comes to worst you can cut free the cable from the PSU you hack up and wire it back to the original snippet you have. not sure why you would ever need to do this unless you came up on an old LG display that had the connector.... even if you lost the snippet you kept, hell for $20 shipped consider all of the extras you get if you purchased another kit anyway!

Will this function as a transmitter/receiver with a 2012 model LG TV if I don't need to switch inputs? I just need to transmit HDMI video/audio from my PC to my TV.

you'd still need to modify the cable to provide the receiver with power.

I could really use this at work. But it's only HDMI input and component input and NOT composite correct? Wonder how well an HDMI to component converter would work with this?

no composite but does have component.

as far as the converter, you mean putting an hdmi to component adapter on the receiver side? should work...

I have an SD camera and two separate/distinct audio feeds to send wireless to the next room. So it looks like I would need a composite (yellow cable) to component converter and then just feed my two audio feeds and the component video from the converter to the transmitter. The receiver would send an HDMI signal to a 47 inch TV. I think it will work. The converter seems to be twice as much as this device. Probably won't be an LG TV so I'm very interested in the hack. Will do some reading.

I'm not sure, but the service manual does mention composite/cvbs. A lot of component ports are dual-purpose component/composite, so try it out first before getting a converter.

Good point about dual-purpose. Can't hurt to try. At this price it's a no brainer. Have you had any experience about hacking this device to work with other brand TV's?
