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.

The video in that link looks like a laboratory is needed for the mod. May be someone can make video of actually carrying out the mod rather than the finished product after the mod.
It is actually very easy to mod. The receiving dongle need power, which is provided by LGTV wireless slot. You just need provide power to the dongle to make it work with other TV sets. The voltage is 17~19v, around 2A. Almost all DC adapters of HP and DELL laptops is 19v.

So this is basically streaming e.g. video from my laptop in the office to my tv in the living room. The same could be achieved by connecting my laptop via HDMI directly to the TV.
Is that correct?

Yes, this is one example of what could be done with this unit along with an alternative wired solution.

Thank you for clarifying. Now the tricky question: How would I be able to connect a non-HDMI laptop to the transmitter unit?

Nah thats easy, there are converters for any video output. Switching the inputs is really what makes this difficult. Really wish this worked with 2012 LGs.

Looking at the photos on Amazon, and assuming your laptop has a VGA output, the transmitter looks to have a VGA (RGB IN) port w/ a complimenting audio input.


It's the receiver that looks like it is only HDMI, so you'll want to make sure that your monitor or television has HDMI input.

VGA input would be great.

Is the signal encrypted? Broadcasting screen while you are banking is not good.

I bought one cuz this is damn cheap for 1080p wireless transmitter. There's certainly a project that'll come up which would use this little box.

You think the MPAA would allow an unencrypted HDMI signal over the air? They care far more about their movies than about your bank account.
