+libLGTV_serial is a Python library to control LG TVs (or monitors with serial ports) via their serial (RS232) port. It aims to reduce the legwork needed to use this functionality on your TV - simply enter your TV model number and serial port and you're good to go!
## Requirements ##
- Python 3.x
- The pyserial module
- Windows: http://pypi.python.org/pypi/pyserial
- Debian/Ubuntu Linux: sudo apt-get install python-serial
-## Supported TVs/Operating Systems ##
-This has only been tested on Windows, and on a 42LK450 LG LCD TV. However...
-
-- I am fairly certain that it will work on Linux and Mac OS X as well
-- A large number of LG TVs are supported, a full list can be found on [the wiki](https://github.com/suan/libLGTV_serial/wiki/Supported-TV-Models). If your model isn't listed there, you can...
- - Modify the code and add it yourself. The code is pretty simple and straightforward. Look up the codes from the Owner's Manual on the included CD-ROM or from [LG's Support Website](http://www.lg.com/us/support/index.jsp) (Look for the section titled "EXTERNAL CONTROL THROUGH RS-232C"). If you added your model this way I would really appreciate a pull request! =)

## Usage ##
Currently I'm using the library through the LGTV.py script, which is invoked everytime certain buttons are pressed on my HDTV remote. The script is also a simple example of what the library can do and should be enough for most needs. (However, there's no reason you can't use the library in other ways, such as in a client-server configuration.)
