Have TV Questions? Ask a TV Technician
Hello, The TV doesn't have a spot to plug an IR receiver/blaster system directly into it. In fact, I don't know of many TV's beyond Samsung that do. If you would, postback with the model number off of the back of the LG TV and I can search with certainty however.
In most cases, an actual powered IR repeater "System" is what's needed for installations like this. This system has an IR receiver that can be mounted virtually anywhere and it connects to a powered IR repeater box, which then has small receivers that can be placed directly over the IR sensor of the component you're trying to operate.
Such a system is at the link below for purchase:

Thanks. Well with a model number, I can now look it up. Any part number, model, etc. for the frame? Just because they were bought together doesn't mean they were designed to work together? I need to look it up so I know what we're dealing with here.
Good news though. This TV does have a jack labeled "Remote Control IN" on the back of the set.
You can see it clearly on page 2 of the specification sheet below (lower right hand corner of the 2nd page):
If you need further assistance let me know. Please do not forget to click at least a 3 STAR RATING, at the top of the page for my efforts. You can follow up at any time if needed.
Can't find any details on the frame except it's made by Chief- and discontinued. The TV's Remote Input is the standard 1/8" jack used by every IR system I've encountered. Not sure what Chief is using here. Can you post a picture of the connector? Or tell me what exactly you would need an adapter to do (go up a size, etc.)?
Okay, I'm looking at the manual for the Chief right now (found it), and your IR replicator doesn't plug into any port. You simply remove the adhesive and stick it over the TV's IR receiver.
Instructions are below. The frame has the IR receiver and it simply sends this signal optically to the stick on panel. The stick on panel sticks over the TV's infra-red sensor. It does not plug into anything. It literally sticks on using two sided tape that is already mounted on the panel.
So you're saying you only need a Male to Male? That's easy enough- an 1/8" to 1/8" stereo patch cable will work ad cab be purchased at Radio Shack, Best Buy or Wal Mart at the link below:
Understood. You have a female on the TV and a female on the sensor. So, then why not use the cord I linked to above to connect them together??
Do you need further assistance with this?
The manual I pulled up and posted for your frame has nothing like that- in fact there's not even a plug on the sensor as it attaches directly to the frame?? Are you missing pieces here, or perhaps not seeing that the sensor plugs into the frame? I'm confused here....
Please send a photo of what you have.
Or perhaps the one I sent is a different model frame. I'm looking to see if I can find anything else on the frame you have....
No that was the correct manual I pulled up. The Infra Red panel thing plugs into the frame not the TV.
It plugs into the lower corner on the inside of the frame. Let me know if you are still not able to find this.
I don't think you understand how the frame works. The OUTSIDE of the frame HAS a built IN Infra Red lens.
You plug that IR piece INTO THE FRAME and the frame then COMMUNICATES to the lens.
The Lens mounts over the TV's IR sensor.
That is how this is set up.
It's clearly outlined in those instructions I posted above. Did you read them and look at the setup? That was specifically WHY I posted them for you, so you could see how to set this up.
Okay, so your model mirror is completely different than the manual that comes with it? Alright....so that said, I guess it would be impossible for me to have any idea what you would need to do- since I've already stated how to connect this, and already asked a couple of times for a picture of the connector (to no avail). I guess at this point I will need to opt and and leave the question.
