Our take on the LG AN-WL100W

by Steve Kindig
LG

Set your TV free
LG's Wireless 1080p Media Kit opens up a roomful of placement options for compatible 2010 LG TV models. You no longer need to keep your TV close to your satellite or cable TV hookup, or to any of your components, really. This is a great way to clear away the clutter so you can just enjoy a beautiful TV.

Simple hookup, crystal-clear picture and sound
Here's how this system works. You connect your components to the wireless transmitter box. There are six HD-capable inputs: four HDMI and two component video. The other half of the system is a small wireless receiver module that attaches to the back of your LG TV in just seconds. The transmitter can send uncompressed "Full HD" 1080p video and surround sound up to 49 feet away.

  • LED-LCD TVs: LX95600, LEX9, LE8500, LE7500, LX6500, LE5500, LE5400, LW5600, LW6500

Wireless Compatibility: The LG AN-WL100W Wireless Media Box allows you to wirelessly transmit audio/video signals and control commands via a 5 GHz frequency band (5.15 GHz to 5.85 GHz). It supports wireless PCM audio and wireless video up to 1080p, up to 49-feet away.

Note: The wireless media box and included wireless dongle should be placed in the same room. Maintain a distance of at least 16-feet between the LG AN-WL100W and another device operating on a 5 GHz band.

Wireless Media Box: The LG wireless media box provides audio/video connections for your home's AV system and allows you to wirelessly transmit those signals to the included wireless dongle and your connected LG HDTV. The wireless media box consists of 6 high-definition video inputs (4 HDMI/2 Component), two analog stereo RCA inputs, a PC input, optical digital audio output, and two IR blaster jacks. The wireless media box features a component-like design, so it can be mounted with the rest of your AV gear.

Wireless Dongle: The included wireless dongle receives wireless audio/video information from this system's wireless media box (via 5 GHz band) and then sends those audio/video signals to your compatible LG flat-panel television (via HDMI). The wireless dongle features a single HDMI output to connect to your compatible LG flat-panel television for audio and video signal transfer. The wireless dongle also features a proprietary wireless control port which connects to your LG television's proprietary rear-panel wireless control port via the included wireless control cable. This port is used to send and receive commands between your compatible LG HDTV and this system's wireless media box. The wireless dongle mounts to the back of the television via the included Velcro pad.

Note: The wireless dongle should be installed with the LG TV turned off.

High-Definition Video Inputs: The wireless media box  features 4 HDMI inputs (3 rear/1 side) and 2 rear-panel component video inputs.

  • 4 HDMI (v1.3) Inputs: The four HDMI (v1.3) inputs (3 rear/1 side) can be used to connect a DVD player, Blu-ray player, HDTV or Satellite Set-top box with an HDMI output. The HDMI inputs support audio and video transfer. The HDMI jacks will accept 1080p (60/24Hz),1080i, 720p, and 480p video signals (the unit's HDMI inputs will not accept 480i or 576i). The rear-panel HDMI inputs can also be used to connect a device with a DVI output (a DVI-to-HDMI adapter cable is necessary). If a DVI-equipped device is used, a separate audio cable will also be needed from the device to the "RGB/DVI Audio In" 3.5mm stereo audio jack.
  • Two Component Video Input: The two rear-panel Component Video inputs will accept 1080p (60/24Hz), 1080i, 720p, 480p, and 480i signals. Each Component Video input has an adjacent stereo RCA audio input. Both Component Video inputs can also be used as standard Composite Video inputs (480i only).

The HDMI output supports 1080p (60/24Hz),1080i, 720p, and 480p video signals (the unit's HDMI output does not support 480i or 576i). The HDMI output will also transfer a PCM audio signal to your compatible LG television.

IR Blasters: The included two dual IR blasters allow your compatible LG HDTV to control external equipment connected to the wireless media box, such as your cable or satellite box. The two dual IR blasters plug into the back of the wireless media box. Each dual IR blaster includes an attached 10' cable.

Wireless Control: The included wireless dongle features a wireless control port and includes a wireless control cable which plugs into your LG TV's proprietary wireless control port. This connection allows you to switch inputs on the LG wireless media box via your compatible LG HDTV's remote control. The wireless media box's audio/video inputs will display on your compatible LG television's on-screen menu.

Note: You can also switch inputs by using the soft-touch input buttons on the front-panel of the wireless media box.

Optical Digital Audio Output: You can output the wireless media box's audio signal to external audio equipment via its optical digital output. It will only output a PCM signal.

PC-Compatible: The LG wireless media box has a rear-panel 15-pin D-Sub (RGB) input that allows you to use your compatible LG flat-panel TV as a high-resolution computer monitor. This input consists of a stereo mini-jack and an analog RGB (D-Sub 15-pin) jack. This jack allows you to connect a personal computer with a D-Sub 15-pin output. When using the RGB (D-Sub 15-pin) jack, you must use the PC Audio 3.5mm input for your audio connection. Any of the unit's HDMI inputs can also be used with a computer.This wireless media box supports plug-&-play capability, meaning that your PC adjusts automatically to the wireless media box's settings.

Wireless?

Written By thomasr1950, Central US on Monday, December 05, 2011
 
I'm not a gamer so i don't have a game system hooked up to tv. I wanted to hookup tv/soundbar wirelessly to the receiver & do away with wires but it won't do that. If i had tv mounted on wall it would be better but i don't. Also it can't be located close to my soundbar's subwoofer, interference.
Pros:
It was free with LG tv.
Cons:
It won't transmit wirelessly to tv or LG soundbar. It has to be hooked up via cable to Directv receiver then it transmits the signal to tv. You can connect dvd player or game system to it, then it will transmit to tv.

Buyer Beware

Written By Dave, Pittsburgh, PA on Saturday, February 26, 2011
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I just spent a fortune on new hardwood floors so I purchased an new LG Infinia TV and the LG Wireless Media Center so that I didn't have to drill through the new floors and run cable. When the wireless came the manual says to set it up in the same room as the TV which is not possible in my case. I called Crutchfield Tech Support and they couldn't help so I called Comcast Tech Support and was told to call Crutchfield since they hadn't dealt with this. I picked up a digital cable box from Comcast to see if I could connect through that but the box requires its own remote which makes it another untenable option since it wouldn't be in the same room. So please be careful before purchasing this that it will really work in your situation.

Works Perfectly

Written By Matt, South Florida on Monday, January 03, 2011
 
I just received my LG AN-WL100W in the mail today. It took me about 10 minutes to connect and it works FLAWLESSLY. I no longer have 50' of HDMI cable running along the baseboard.

Lastly, the LG website clearly states which TV's this is compatible with. Fortunately, I can read and was able to determine that it will work as intended with my non-3D LG 47" television.

Works as advertised

Written By Don, Wyoming on Monday, December 27, 2010
 
This product has worked well (so far), nice not to have to run a long HDMI
cable...I have about 12 feet away and signal is strong...even goes through a
pocket door in the room where the unit is. Yes, it is not 3D compatible,
however, I am not planning on attaching 3D Blue Ray to this, will go straight to
TV connection with that. I am giving it only 4 out of 5 because of
oversimplified and basically worthless set of directions. Also, would be nice to
have an optical audio cord included (from receiver box to unit).

Waste of Money

Written By RC, Chicago on Friday, December 03, 2010
 
WARNING!! WARNING!! Do Not waste your money. No where does it state on any web
site (this one) or (LG's) that this product DOES NOT SUPPORT 3D!! Its only
compatible with 3D-LG TV's but yet it does not support it. Go figure. I looked
everywhere to see if any site was honest enough to disclose this and there
wasn't one single place. It only says it in real small print on the box. Whats
the point if you can't use all of your TV's features?? $350.00 waste of time and
MONEY!
