How to install application on LG TV?

Recommended Posts

I am building the sample application from LG documentation which is here:
link hidden, please login to view

 

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

link hidden, please login to view
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.

      It is now 2020, and the WebOS browser in LG Smart TVs (which I believe is Chromium-based) is still massively out of date and doesn't work properly with a ton of websites!
      The main problem is actually very simple. The browser doesn't support EMCAScript 2015 or ES6.
      Basically, translated from nerd speak, it doesn't work properly with modern code using new features created since 2015, so any newer websites will break unless they've been written to be compatible with ancient browsers and OSes.
      This should not be the case on a TV made in the current year. It should be running an up-to-date web browser, if not for convenience, then for SECURITY reasons as well!

      Hi
      I got an LG OLED today, I only have a Sky Q as input (no other devices). I want to stop using the Sky Q remote, which button on the LG magic remote acts like the "Home" or "Sky" buttons on the Sky Q Remote? 
      The magic remote can pause/play and power off the sky q box as well as navigate the menu (after I call it up) all with single button pushes. But to get the sky menu - I cannot find a way to get a single button push on the LG to bring the sky q menu up. I found a couple of ways
      1) press the STP power button twice (off / on = brings menu up on power up)
      2) press the ... (three dots) button then scroll down to menu from the pop up menu.

      I want a single button to bring up the Sky menu ... any ideas? Maybe it's possible to configure the 4 coloured buttons or the GUIDE button on the LG remote to map to the Sky Home/Menu feature
      Thanks in advance
      Dave
