How to install application on LG TV?


Recommended Posts

I am building the sample application from LG documentation which is here:

I can build it and run it inside the browser and the emulator and now I like to push it on a real LG TV. Here are few things I did:

 

# Create a tv2 device

ares-setup-device --add tv2 -i "username=root" -i "host=172.28.75.74" -i "port=22"

 

# Check which devices are listed with ares tools

ares-setup-device --list

<DEVICE NAME>    <PLATFORM>       <FILE STREAM>    <DESCRIPTION>            <SSH ADDRESS>

tv2              starfish         stream           new device description   (ssh://[email protected]:22)

emulator         starfish         sftp             LG webOS TV Emulator     (ssh://[email protected]:6622)

 

# Try to install the app on the TV

ares-install --device tv2 com.rn.app.remotekeyssample_1.0.0_all.ipk

 

# Gettings this error.

ares-install ERR! ares-install: Error: Connection time out. please check the device IP address or port.

 

Questions:

- Can I use a regular LG TV to install apps on it?

- If yes what should I do to connect to my TV? Any settings or command I need to do?

 

Thank you

One question regarding your expierence with this:

 

On the "App Test" documentation page it seems that this test won't install the app persistently on the device, that is the app does not stay after removing the USB stick.

 

Is the case or is it a real installation leaving the app on device after removal of the USB stick?

I have been deploying apps to a webOS TV for months now. Its very hit and miss. I always follow the advice here

as per micolet's post. However, I am only successful 20 percent of the time. 

 

I have tried the following:

 

1) Turning developer mode off and on again in the Developer Mode app

2) Blowing away all my ssh keys for previous LG apps

3) Removing and re-adding devices using ares-setup-device

4) trying port 22 as per some posts on this subject

 

The key is acquired correctly using ares-novacom --device EDNEW --getkey. I know this because any error with the ip would cause an error at this stage. The result of this command is a silent return to the prompt.

 

However, trying to list apps on the device throws an error, ares-install --device EDNEW --list returns this: ares-install: Error: Please check the device IP address or port.

 

Sometimes i can make the connection, but most of the time it fails and I cant see any pattern. 

 

If anybody can shed some light on this I will be extremely grateful, its a tiresome blocker for me.

      The LG Gallery is a very nice application, I use it many times, but unfortunately there are few classical paintings. Unfortunately, uploaded user images are represented by a variety of transitions and animations, which greatly worsens the artwork.
      It would be good if:
      - The number of factory-downloadable images would increase to multiple
      - Simply display user UHD images without any crossover animation (get the effect on and off)
      - It would be possible to play back-up images in random order.
