One Way Messaging

Hopefully somebody here can help. I am looking for a way to push messages to TV/Monitors in remote locations. In other words, using my phone or computer I can send a message to a monitor several miles away.

Tht seems pretty easily doable...what are the monitors connected to—a computer?

This may give you a start. Might not be exactly what you want.

Assuming there's internet, you could get a raspberry pi and code something up with Tasker/autoremote/IFTTT. Maybe have the pi have a browser full screen, with a page open that displays whatever it receives from autoremote/IFTTT. It would involve some coding/scripting on your part. Depends how comfortable you are with it, and what your requirements are for the message.

So many questions, requirements that are unanswered. I am assuming that the monitor is connected to a computing device of some sort that has connectivity to the outside world and also has some kind of video card. Will you be displaying the message itself or giving a command to the computing device to display something else. In either case you need some kind of decoder that interprets the remote command and the performs some local action. Am I on the right track?

Close. It needs to be IP driven.

Trying to keep it as cheap as possible. IP based, displaying a message only using a monitor/tv with some type of adjunct/adaptor to receive the message.

Here is this device that can probably be called an HDMI over LAN extender:

 Don't be scared by the word LAN. It can be extended over the WAN, just make sure you forward the port on the router to the right device.

Google "HDMI over IP" lots of different devices available.

What they do is extend/route your display over IP. 

Look also at this:

or this:

Which reminds me that with with Chromecast and inexpensive Chromecast dongles you can accomplish what you want at least on a LAN.

    • Let me take a look tonight. 
    • Actually, I notice it says whole clusters were skipped because of invalid TAC values.  It says "File exported for inspection."  I do have Log Sites with Missing TAC checked. Robert
    • I was able to figure this out by looking at your diagnostic reports -- you're seeing n7 because your Galaxy A32 is reporting it natively as n7.. Samsung will have to fix that on their end unfortunately. Do the engineering screens report it correctly? I have an A32 test device but I have not seen it connect to n41 (or "n7") yet. If I do, I'll try to troubleshoot and nag Samsung. EDIT: After I installed the new Android 12 update, I'm now seeing the n7 bug too -- I will reach out to Samsung. They were very responsive when I reported some related glitches with the initial A32 software.
    • I appreciate the feedback today -- another new is SCP beta rolling out right now! It should resolve the force closes that started with yesterday's beta release; I also made additional improvements that hopefully(?) will reduce ongoing issues with overall app stability.
    • I'm noticing a spike in instability while driving around testing the app today also.. more freeze-ups than crashes, but it's probably all related. Hopefully any crash reports that are collected can shed some light on it for me. I'll be looking into it later tonight.
