Directv tcp control

(1/2) > >>

Directv allows control of their rx's through the network. Also so does yamaha and lg tv's. an we start seeing some network based controls? I really want to get an HD capture card going (componenet obviously) with one of my rx's and get this party started.

If you can control the device via a TCP socket, and have a protocol sheet, then a device template can be made to control the device over the network. I am doing this for both my Denon AVC-2312 and Sharp Aquos TVs.

I may use a upnp browser later also to try and "sniff" it out

tschak909:
The Panasonic IP camera template can provide you with the information you need to write a new device template of this nature. You merely have to mimic the HTTP requests. Also, that you have the TCP Port device data specified, instead of Com Port on PC, so that it knows that this is a network device.

Please read the Generic Serial Device page, on the wiki, as a starting point. There are many other articles related to it as well that are useful.
