WebOS 3.5 video out for ambilight

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I have 49UH6100, device that does not have hardware video out connection.
I would still like to use some sort of ambilight with it, so my guess is I'd need to resort to some sort of webhook to a running webos app which would serve a screenshot of the screen every xxx ms.

Is there anything out there that can help me?

Any ideas? (I cant have all devices hooked up to AVR before the TV because the AVR I have does not support 4k)

      Hi there,

      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. 
      peace

      WebOS 3.5 is set to be shown off at LG’s booth at CES 2017 in Las Vegas. No word yet on when, or if, it will roll out to existing smart TV models, but it will definitely ship with still unannounced new smart TVs slated to launch next year.
