iPiMP is a web interface for MediaPortal specifically designed for the iPhone, but also works with any Smartphone or device that uses a webkit based browser. It uses MediaPortal interfaces to communicate with both the TV Server and MediaPortal clients.

You can use iPiMP to interact with your MediaPortal TV Server allowing you to view your TV guide, read program details, schedule programs to be recorded, email program details as well as view, manage & watch your existing recordings. Watching live TV though is not possible (yet!).

There is a status facility allowing you to view the status of your services, disk capacity and tv card activity, you can also stop a card when timeshifting if you want to kick someone off.

You can also use iPiMP to interact with your MediaPortal clients, you can use it as a remote control, browse/play your video and music databases on your MediaPortal clients, send messages to popup on your MediaPortal clients and startup/shutdown/reboot/standby/hibernate your clients. The client functionality will be extended to provide additional features for other MediaPortal plugins.

    I know that with some iPhone web-apps you can make them behave more like native apps (i.e. Full Screen Mode, which hides toolbars and navigation buttons and makes the website more like an app) - does iPiMP do this?

    see: Dashcode User Guide: Providing Attributes for a Web Application
    Not quite - some of this functionality comes with IUI though which I use - for example orientation changes and loading the web page to hide the safari toolbar.

    This is developed on my PC is ASP.NET - no MAC so no Dashcode.

    Also - I've started the iPiMP wiki - this will have more instructions, bugs, ideas etc.
