Watchdog service to open a video from a connected source (USB preferred)


Simone

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,

I just started to play with the SDK and I'm wondering if what I have in mind is feasible: 

I'd like to create a watchdog service in my LG tv, this service will be invoked from an external device (I'd say my phone through a custom app).

The service call will include a parameter that indicates the file to open from the USB drive.

First, I'd like to understand if it's feasible, then any suggestion would be welcome.

 

Regards,

Simone

      Hello,
      I have a problem with the subtitles when I try to share a video wirelessly directly from my PC to my LG 55SM9010PLA TV. I am not talking about sharing the whole screen (it lags a bit), just the video itself. 
      Sharing the video itself works well, but randomly the TV randomly does not recognise the subtitle, the sub option is not active in the TV menu, and there are no subtitles. It is in the same folder on my PC as the movie (.mkv), with the same name. In case of some movies it works, in case of others not, and I do not see the reasons why.
      First I tought it is becouse the format of the subtitle needs to be ".sub", becouse it worked with one movie. So I have learnt how to convert properly ".srt" to ".sub" - but still no success.
      Then I realised, in the case of another movie ".srt" worked on the TV, so I got really confused.
      I see no logic behind it.  Could you help me, what is the key here, what am I missing?
      Thank you!

      I used to have a JBL soundbar, connected via ARC. Now I switched to Denon soundbar again with ARC connection. But my tv doesn't turn off now, although all other functions are working fine on the remote. Any idea?
