One Way Messaging

Recommended Posts

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.

    • Sigh.  In attempting to put the database back on my phone this evening after doing an update, it obliterated the database again.  It had been working as normal for several weeks. I think I'm going to [finally] apply the Android 10 update and see what happens.  Maybe it'll help... EDIT: When I rebooted, it came back up with data included.  No idea what to make of it.  Reimported from the file just in case, and it remained present, so we'll see, I guess. Separately, how hard would it be to make it possible to filter the Neighbor Notes?  I noticed earlier today that I'm seeing neighbors on Bands 12 and 2 pretty often.  Naturally, it tries to look for notes for those PCIs with PLMN 310120, even though they're clearly T-Mobile neighbors.  Would it be possible to add a "Sprint transition mode" or something where it matches Band 25/26/41 neighbor notes to 310120 and other neighbor notes to 310260? - Trip
    • Interesting to read an update.  But I remember a lot of people back then said, 'I will believe it when I see it.'  Now, 5 years later, I can't help but hear those voices even louder now.  They were certainly proven right.  Even if it does eventually happen. Robert
    • I know that. I'm talking about further down the line for 5G. What I'm saying is that with the addition of Sprint's PCS, they can expand LTE on PCS and shift HSPA from AWS to the remaining 5MHz in PCS-B so that they can have a 25MHz n66 carrier down the line and a 20MHz n2 carrier since n2 is not currently registered for greater than 20MHz carriers. The other solution would be to simply get rid of HSPA altogether and have two 25MHz n66 and n25 carriers since n25 allows for 25MHz carriers. Then T-Mobile could retain the 5MHz PCS-G for legacy LTE service.
    • Hopefully they get more Sprint users in T-Mobile since they are reducing B25 for Sprint to 2 5x5 blocks and I've also notice B41 LTE disappearing in LI. Sent from my SM-G988U1 using Tapatalk
    • HSPA+ isn't on B2 in NY. It's on B4 out there since they have 20x20 B4. Before the merger TMO only had 10x10 total Sent from my SM-G975U1 using Tapatalk
