Control Ethernet-enabled TV via LAN

 Arduino forum member 'goofball' has documented his work in progress which is the control of a Sharp LCD television via his home network. Using an Arduino Mega and custom RS232-interface circuitry, he can control the TV via a web interface. Following this is an Android app to control the TV instead, and the code is included for your perusal. 

For more information, code downloads and notes visit the Arduino forum. And we're on twitter and Google+, so follow us for news and product updates as well.

When your projects outgrow the normal Arduino-compatible boards, running out of program and flash memory space, or you're stacking on Ethernet and microSD shields, or all at once - it's time to upgrade to the Freetronics EtherMega:

Quite simple the EtherMega is the fully-loaded Arduino-compatible board on the market today. Apart from being completely Arduino Mega2560-compatible, it includes full Ethernet interface, a microSD card socket, full USB interface, optional Power-over-Ethernet support and still has a circuit prototyping area with extra I2C interface pins. So if your project is breaking the limits, upgrade to the EtherMega today.
