Question about LG Televison & Video

Connect tv to network

I am having problems connecting my TV to PC's on my home network to access Music/Photos/Films on them. I have Virgin Media hub serving 3 wireless laptops and TV and Xbox on wired connection. The Xbox and TV both served via a separate NETGEAR router with one cable from that to the Virgin Media Hub. I have no problem using NETCAST on the TV. I have conntacted LG who say I must set manual IP settings for the TV in the TV's network menu. However I do not know how to find out or work out the settings I need? I need to enter IP address, subnet mask, Gateway and DNS. Do I get settings from the virgin hub - the Netgear Router? or is it something different?

Get them from the net gear router if you can.
Or one of the PC's connected to the network.
the subnet and the router you need will be identical to that of the PC.
the only change you need to make to the IP address is to make sure that the last octet is different to all others on the network.
The IP address is made up of 4 octets. looking something like 192.168.1.28
or similar. In this instance 28 is the last octet.
DNS is not required for this setup.

SOURCE: LG 37LC7D Connect to VGA from a PC

Your right. I just had the same "Invalid Input" issue as well and it completely relates to the resolution compatability with any VGA or HDMI connection. Check the LG website for the online manual if you don't have it and see the section on RGB-PC cable. There is a table that incdicates the Resolutions the LG product is capable of displaying.

Thanks for the help.

SOURCE: My Samsung TV picture is supplied via a HDMI lead

yes you need to connect audio out from the tv to audio in on the dvd surround. you need the red/white phono to phono leads, simply connect together and select audio (av,au) on the input selection.

SOURCE: I purchased yesterday a 42"

I came across this very same problem a year or so ago regarding a Plasma TV and connection via scart. It turned out to be a problem with the scart lead. Replacing the lead with an all pins connected type fixed the problem. It was caused by the TV not being given the +ve voltage on pin8 and the TV thought it was not a proper signal and shut down.
Hope that helps.

Network issues with Samsung Smart TV UN60JU6500FXZA


You mention two separate issues, WiFi and smart hub. As you know Samsung built in manual is the worst idea ever. There is no picture of the complete rear panel connection for example.
If the smart hub is the actual WiFi antenna then if your system doesn't recognize Smart Hub then you have a bad smart hub.
to test smart hub plug something into hub ( DVD HDMI, video game) If your remote has smart hub button press and see what appears. Otherwise select source on remote see if your attached item appears. (That would indicate smart hub does talk to TV)!
Since you can access your network when hard wired your network password is stored.
Once you have verified Smart Hub is functional then work on WiFi.
i will say my Samsung is 3 ft from my router and hard wired for better streaming speed.
I use Bluetooth access to share photos from IPads.
I would leave TV hard wired.

How to Stream Music from Windows 7 ? Share Media on Wireless Network


You can listen to your favorite music without having to carry your laptop everywhere by sharing your music library on a wireless network. Here is a tutorial to show how to stream music from one laptop to another. Using this method digital media such as videos and pictures can also be accessed from anywhere easily. By the following method you can listen music or view your photos or movies stored in your computer from different places in the network.

First we'll connect the server laptop to a wireless home network. This laptop has Windows 7 with Media player 12 and it has all the music, videos and media that you want to share. Right-click on the Internet notification area and select 'Open network and sharing center'. Now, click on 'Connect to a network' and from the list of networks, choose the preferred one and connect. Enter the secure network key when prompted.

Let's create a 'HomeGroup'. From 'Network and Sharing Center', click 'HomeGroup' and then 'What is a network location?'. You'll see a window with three options. Select the first one that says 'Home Network'. In the following window, select what you want to share and click 'Next'. Follow the onscreen instructions and Click 'Finish'.

In 'Network and Sharing Center', click 'Change Advanced Sharing Settings' and make the changes. Then go to 'Media Streaming Options' and allow people you want access to your files. Open Windows Media Player, go to 'Stream' and click 'Automatically allow devices to play my media'. The content you chose to share is now on this network.

To access this content on a client PC or laptop, first connect the machine to the same wireless network as the server laptop, using the previous procedure. Vista users can right click and directly select 'Connect to network'. Assuming that both laptops are in the same network, open Windows Media Player and see of you can find the shared server laptop in the left pane.

To find shared media on the network and to share media from the client PC, in WMP, right-click on Library and click 'Media Sharing'. Here, you can allow or deny access to other PCs and find the media you're looking for. Click 'OK' when you're done. Now, the server PC will appear in WMP and other functionalities will remain same. You're now ready to play the music which is stored on the server PC.

Hi. We are trying to setup a phillips tv through a bt vision box please


  1. A TV aerial feed - The BT Vision box gets its digital TV signals over-the-air, so needs a TV aerial. This needs to be connected to the aerial input socket on the V-Box. There is an output RF aerial socket to allow you to connect an aerial feed to a TV if required.
  2. SCART lead - You need to make a connection from the Vision+ box to the TV using a SCART lead. If you have a HD TV set, you can also connect via an HDMI lead (not supplied).
  3. Connection to Broadband - You'll need to connect from the BT Vision+ box to a BT Broadband connection. This is done using the BT Home Hub. The Home Hub is the Broadband router supplied by BT, and it connects into to your phone line to give you Internet access-The most common way to make the connection, is to connect an Ethernet (networking) cable from the BT Vision+ box to one of the Ethernet ports on the Home Hub. If you can't make a direct connecting to the Home Hub, you can use powerline adapters to make the connection. The self-install kit includes two Powerline adapters to allow you to connect to the Home Hub if it's in a different room to the BT Vision+ Box.
  4. The BT Vision v-box has an additional scart socket, which can be connected to a video or dvd recorder.

How do you connect a ps3 to a computer


Set up your PS3
Step 1: Make sure your PS3 is connected to the same network (via Ethernet or wireless) as your computer. You can check your connection by going to Settings > Network Settings.
Step 2: Go to Settings > Network Settings > Media Server Connection on your PS3 and set it to "Enabled."


Set up your computer (PC)
Step 1: Download and install the latest version on Windows Media Player.
Step 2: Go to Library > Add to Library and add folders you want your PS3 to access. All personal folders (Photos, Videos, and Music) are selected by default, but if you have media in other folders, add them.
Step 3:. Go to Library > Media Sharing, and check "Share Media." Press "OK," then wait a few moments for your PS3 to show up as one of the devices. Then select it, click "Allow," then "OK."


OR


Set up your computer (Mac)
Step 1: Download and install PS3 Media Server (free). This will allow your PS3 to "see" your Mac.
Step 2: Connect to the same network as your PS3.
Step 3: Go to Navigation/Share Settings and uncheck everything in the Thumbnails section (at the top). Then, at the bottom, add folders you want your PS3 to access. You can choose to add your entire hard drive, but it's helpful to add shortcuts to folders like Music, Videos, and Pictures.
Step 4: Go to Transcoding Settings, and change the Maximum bandwidth to 14 or 15. If you have a very strong network connection, leave it at 0. If you don't have a 5.1 surround sound theater, go to the "Number of audio channels" settings and change it to "Stereo."
Step 5: At the top, hit "Save" and "Restart HTTP Connection."




Stream your media
Step 1: Go back to your PS3, and your computer's name will be listed under the Photos, Videos, or Music tabs. You need to be in the Music section on your PS3 to play music, in the Photos section to see photos, and in the Videos section to play videos. You cannot play copyrighted material.
Here are a few extra tips:
  • When viewing a photo, hit the b_triangle.gif button to view extra options, like starting a slideshow of images in the selected folder.
  • When listening to music, you can keep it playing in the background by hitting the PlayStation (home) button.
  • You can copy music, photos, and videos onto your PS3 hard drive. When viewing a file, hit the b_triangle.gif button and select "Copy."

All I want to do is run the playstation thru my computer. Do I have to connect it to the internet to do that?


not internet but your home network.
i'm not sure you can use your playstation through your computer. but you can access your pictures, music, videos that is stored on your computer from your ps3. if you have the latest version of windows media player it makes it easier.

Using Windows Media Player 11 as the server
Open Windows Media Player 11
From the toolbar, select Library then Media Sharing
Check "Share my media"
On the PS3 - Under Video, Photos or Music, select "Scan for media server"
Go back to the PC, and you should see a pop up showing an unknown device trying to connect.
Allow the device, and everything should work.
