G15 appears to work with WoW out of the box, showing things like battleground info and character infomation:
Does anyone know HOW this information is being accessed?
Is the keyboard software reading something from WoW, or is WoW passing the info to the keyboard first?
(I want to see if it's possible to read a different stat, such as honor points.)

the LCD doesn't fetch the information from WoW, WoW sends it to the LCD using Logitech's LCD SDK. unless Blizzard provides some kind of configuration file or Lua script for this purpose, you can't change what WoW shows on the LCD.
I do not work for Logitech. I'm just a user.

Sorry for digging up the old topic, but I was thinking about this particular issue for a while now - at the very moment, most of the information (and the way it's being displayed) on the G's LCD, being sent by WoW isn't too helpful.
There is, however, a way to deal with the issue - using some third-party software (like, for example, LCD Studio) along with G series' panel, it is possible to display some chunks of textfiles. Having that in mind, we can parse and dig out some interesting numbers and info from the log file, that WoW's Combat Log can export after typing the /combatlog command.
The biggest nut to crack for me at the moment is to find an effective way to parse the file, live, and effectively enough to send it out to LCD Studio without delay.
Of course, I'll place any new info on the subject as soon as I'll manage to make it work well enough to present it to wide group of users.
