Question about LG Televison & Video
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.

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.

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.

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
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
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
