TV hacking via serial connection or IR codes

LG LD450 HDTV, controlled over an RS232 Serial port.

LG used Linux and other FOSS when developing their TV's firmware.  Because of this, the majority of this firmware source code can be downloaded from their website:  LG also documents some of the RS232 port functionality in the owner's manual: You can send remote control codes directly from your PC.

You can set values and read the values for the TV Internal Settings. Things like Volume and Brightness, On/Off etc.
