@anon10867213 I am a bit confused about your comment, might just be me To what app are you referring?
My guess is this is just spam, see the link he posted. IR apps, has nothing to do with this thread.
Yes I noticed the link and I thought might be a copy/paste mistake. Well you can control your TV with IR of course so there is a tiny reference to IR apps but unless no response I will indeed consider it as spam.
I checked the latest state of my WebOS codebase and I noticed that I already have implemented the required for a few of some ‘newly’ api’s I discovered a while back. I will try to create a new version ASAP but I need to develop this while having access to the TV without bothering my wife
Maybe you should buy a ‘development’ tv… don’t know if you own a porch but I seriously recommend it
IR btw requires the homey to have a line of sight… don’t believe lot’s of homeys do. Mine for example is placed inside the cupboard and doesn’t have a clear line of sight to anything (except for the Nintendo Wii, but that doesn’t have anything to do with LG).
I have a problem with your app, the tv loses its connections after a few hours. My guess is that it has something todo with mdns / multicast because I have that disabled (I don’t want to “cast” to my tv”) is there a way for manual input of ip adress? It’s a static one
@ArtjeB @JB2K I have just released a new version with new external input and app selection. I also last minuted added the possibility to set the IP address manually. Please don’t forgot to set the checkbox to true in the settings else it will get overwritten on new discovery.
For those who have installed the app via the Homey Community Store, it will auto-update if you have that turned on if not you can install the app here. Don’t forget to login (I know, need to fix some UI issues for the HCS)
It’s added in the device settings, however, for that, you must of course have the device added in the first place of course. I didn’t think of that haha sorry. So maybe set your tv to Cast to add it, then you can stop the casting again and manually control the IP via the device settings.
I updated from 2.1 to 2.3 and now everytime the app crashed. Go back to 2.1 and everything is fine. Only for your info @MaxvandeLaar
Many thanks! It works nicely here. I will monitor if I get more crashes.
@JB2K how did you install the update? Was it automatically installed via the HCS, or did you do it via commandline? in case of the latter, run
npm install before you install the app on your Homey and it will fix the issue. I am unsure why, but the app always seems to have an issue with node-fetch.
Hello @MaxvandeLaar ,thanks for your help, npm install solved the problem. Big thanks for your help. Great Job
Still interested how you installed the update? Was it manual or via the HCS?
Hi, manually installed.
Okay thanks for letting me know
