a few weeks ago i got the 43uj6309 LG SmartTV and now i got a question to this TV.
My plan is to install a Ambilight for the TV itself, without HDMI input (as I got none). I red the last days a lot about it and it seems its not that hard.
The only problem is, every topic is about grabbing the video source of an HDMI device, not the TV screen itself. As i dont use any HDMI Device and just stream TV, Netflix and Amazon my ambilight setup has to get the video information from the TV directly.
So i came up with an idea... maybe its not (yet) working or just a stupid idea...
Is it possible to stream the Video signal of the TV to any device trough my network at home? Screensharing or miracast work the same way, dont they? There are Apps like the WEBOS app, where i can scroll trough my photos, so there must be a way to share my TV screen to another WIFI device in the network.
If that works or if there is any way to get the f*** video signal of my TV to the raspberry Pi my ambilight setup would work.
so thanks to anyone who is into the topic and knows someting about it.
Hi guys. I'm PRAYINGGGGGG someone will help. Heres my story:
Model: LG WEB OS 65 inch UJ6300
I started having issues last week when I tried the mirroring options when suddenly PANDORA and all other APPS I want could not be found in the LG content store.
I have tried my HP laptop (brand new, gift for Christmas) with Miracast BUILT IN
MY samsung tablet & my 2 samsung galaxy cell phones (S 8 + & s 8 Note)
The HP laptop worked & conntected for maybe 5-8 minutes and then disconnected. Cannot get it back again. The tablet & pphones wont even connect They find the TV to connect to but then the TV says "unable to connect with screenshare try again"
I called LG & was on the phone twice for over 2 hours being walked through EVERYTHING, even had to reset my tv to factory settings. nothing helped. so they gave me a cerrtified LG techinician. He came and could not help. He downloaded some 3rd party APP and it worked for a few minutes. But the actual miracast did not work. HEY...we just got this tv not even a month ago. its 2018. Why the HELL are we downloading 3rd party apps to mirror a damn screen?! Nope. I called LG back but they said due to his notes (he tried to say it was all 4 of my devices and the tv was fine) they are deeming the TV fine. WTF!!!??
I dont want a new tv i just want a way to be able to screen any device. WITHOUT AN APP. Fuck for that Ill buy a regular non smart TV & invest 30 bucks in CHromecast!!! Am I wrong?!
LG PLEASE address this issue. This should not be happening in friggan 2018!!!!
I attached photos of the error i received when trying to connect
