Simple class for pairing with and controlling your 2012+ LG TV with python.
This library does not appear to support the newer WebOS LG TVs. Please see https://github.com/klattimer/LGWebOSRemote if this does not work for you.
You can find all TVs on the network using the
find_tvs class method.
from lg import Remote addresses = Remote.find_tvs()
If you have only one, it'll be faster to use the
address = Remote.find_tvs(first_only=True)
You will need a pairing key, if you already know it you can pass it to the
__init__ otherwise you can create your remote control instance and it'll ask the TV to display it onscreen. You can then provide this pairing key using the
remote = Remote(address) # Pairing key will appear on screen key = raw_input('Please enter pairing key: ') remote.set_pairing_key(key)
After this you can send single or multiple commands using
remote.send_command(Remote.VOLUME_UP) commands = [Remote.HOME, Remote.EXIT, Remote.MENU] remote.send_multiple(commands)
delay parameter can be provided to
send_multiple; this will the amount of seconds the control will wait between commands. N.B. Sending commands too fast can cause some of them to be ignored.
A reference of all the shortcut commands available are below, you are free to send any integer with
send_command but be careful if you don't know what your are doing, as some commands can force the TV in service modes that can be tricky to get back out of.
