This is a python script for controlling your Smart Lg TV. This is a simplified version of the (windows) lgcommander script found here.

Replace the ip adress in the script with the ip-adress of your LG tv. First time run the script with any number of your choice (ie 'python3 /home/pi/domoticz/scripts/lgtv2012.py 1'). The pairing key will be displayed on your tv screen. Enter this key in the script.

Remote codes can be found here.
