LG TV Serial Control

7 years ago, at the start of October | 1 Comment

Finally, upgraded the TV after living with a 28″ Sony CRT for 14 years. If I’m honest I didn’t really spend much time thinking about which TV to pick, I went for the LG32LD350. So far the TV has worked perfectly and has the added bonus of a serial port. LG don’t hide what this port is for, in fact the protocol and port settings are in the user manual. This is a real breath of fresh air. Look at Sony with their Control-S / Control-L protocols that they didn’t really want you to use. So that’s put LG in my good books and I hope they continue to supply this information. I was also intrigued to get copies of both the GPL and LGPL licences with the documentation. Another project to take a look at.. but later.

Straight away I decided to get working on some serial port control interface. As I said the documentation is there but control needed to be very simple. Luckily I’d already got a SheevaPlug for my birthday in February, so I was just a case of connecting this to the TV with a USB to RS232 device and a Null modem adapter or and serial cable. The USB Serial port uses the PL2303 so is detected without issue. The serial port settings are nothing special, standard console settings

Baud rate : 9600 bps 
Data length : 8 bits 
Parity : None 
Stop bit : 1 bit 

I installed apache2 and php on the SheevaPlug and set about building a test class to control it. It works, although it needs some tidying up. If you want to try it out you can download it. It makes use of the PHP serial class, which I’ve included in the tarball.

LGTV.php       - Main class
control.php    - Example script    
channels.csv   - Channel list
data.csv       - Command list

Configuration and setup is simple. After including the class we create an instance

include('LGTV.php');
 
$tv = new LGTV;

There are a couple of variables that we can set, first of all we set the setId. This should match the id of your TV set, configured from its “Options” menu. If you use a value of 0x00 then all TV sets connected would respond to all the commands issued. I guess this could be useful if you had a big wall of screens or were using them as in store displays or something.

$tv->setId=sprintf("%02x",1);

The default serial port is set as /dev/ttyUSB0 but you can change this using the tty variable.

$tv->tty = '/dev/ttyS0';

Next we need actually try and connect to the TV. If all is well the result of the serialInit command will be true.

$stat = $tv->serialInit();

You can now send commands and query the TV set. By default the variable confirm is true. This means that after you send a command and that command is executed, the class will also query the TV for its current state of that command. In other words if your TV has a current volume of 10 and you request a volume of 9 the command will execute and then will return the current volume. In this example it should be 9. This allows you to verify that a command has taken place, although it does mean that two commands are sent to the TV, not just one. You can disable this by using

$tv->confirm=false;

You should remember to end your script by closing the serial port

$tv->serialExit();

Take a look at control.php to see some basic example code. Please note that this is a preliminary release which I’ll keep updating.

Tivo Return to UK Via Virgin Media

8 years ago, at the end of November | Leave a Comment

This would be so awesome…. if I could get Virgin connectivity. This bit saddens me though, unless Virgin start releasing set top boxes for the rest of us.

“Virgin Media will become the exclusive distributor of TiVo services and technology in the United Kingdom. “

The full announcement is here

I woke this morning to a new security update notification Android - beep beepon my T-mobile G1. The update can be downloaded directly from Google’s servers if you don’t yet have it. The build number changes from CRB43 to CRC1. The update itself is only 2mb but there seems to be little information as to what it fixes, however, the largest patch is the recovery image at 1.4mb (line 43). I’ve extracted the update and below is a file listing of the contents for those that are interested. Incidentally my T-mobile G1 is actually running with an O2 SIM and still got the OTA update. The same should be the case if you’re using any other mobile network.

Pictures from Computex 2009

8 years ago, at the start of June | Leave a Comment

Two of my colleagues are in Taipei again attending Computex 2009 this week and the news is that there appear to be a whole lot of netbooks on view. As ever Nick is uploading pictures to Picasa so you can get some idea of what’s about. As the days progress Nick will update the images, but it is a slow, slow process. Keep your eyes peeled for the rest of the week – and make sure you’re not looking at last years’ pictures by mistake ;). Some of you might notice that some things like the Asus Skype phone have been around for a little while. In fact it has been around since September of last year.

Update 1: More pictures are available.

Update 2: Pictures from day 3 are available now.

Update 3: Pictures from day 4 are available now. There are also some shots of Taipei

Pull That Squidgy iPhone application

8 years ago, at the start of June | 7 Comments

Yesterday a friend was ranting away as usual about how stuff was always broken and in passing mentioned the iPhone application Squidgy, an application that allows you to control your Squeezbox(es). There are apparently two problems with the application. The first is that it crashes quite a bit and doesn’t really seem to work very well, not particularly good for an application costing £5 ($8 / 6 EUR). The second is a little more serious. You see EMCC Software Ltd, the company that released the application, went into administration on 12th March 2009. The application is still on sale in the iTunes store despite the fact that EMCC are not providing support and their website consists of a statement that they are in administration and who the acting agents are. Perhaps it would be wise to find a different application to control your Squeezebox(es).
