    It would be useful if MP supported a simple set of operations via TCP/IP, like -
    <Request Text="TV, Channel Four"/>

    <Request Text="Radio, BBC World"/>

    <Request Text="Key, Up"/>

    There are some attempts (self included) that try this - but I've never managed to get a 100% certain working method.

    Basically this would mean that MP could be driven by an external program (thinking of HomeSeer for myself here but also mean that a smartphone app could be used as a remote.)

    I know there is a TCP/IP app for keypresses (I've already mangled this to do the above).

  • About The Project

    The vision of the MediaPortal project is to create a free open source media centre application, which supports all advanced media centre functions, and is accessible to all Windows users.

    In reaching this goal we are working every day to make sure our software is one of the best.


  • Support MediaPortal!

    The team works very hard to make sure the community is running the best HTPC-software. We give away MediaPortal for free but hosting and software is not for us.

    Care to support our work with a few bucks? We'd really appreciate it!
