    I have Roomie Remote installed in my iPhone and have been using it to run all of my audio-video equipment except for MediaPortal. Remotes are defined in Roomie with XML in an Apple .plist format. Any ideas on how to incorporate the wfiremote.xml file into a .plist format to work with Roomie Remote so I have a remote for my MediaPortal PC running the WifiRemote extension would be appreciated. I like the convenience of having all my remotes in one app on my iPhone.

    Hi,

    It seems that WifiRemote is using socket (from client sources). So it is not a standard REST interface.

    Does anyone knows how to use socket with a linux command line ?
    I have try netcat but no success.
    Hi Pack,

    you are correct, WifiRemote provides a socket server that clients can connect to. I chose that over a HTTP Rest service to be able to send real time data back and forth on a persistent connection. The server (wifiremote) should be able to tell the clients that something is playing at the moment. That wouldn't have been practical via HTTP / TCP.

    Have you tried telnet as a socket client on linux? Not sure how to script that, though.

    Best,

    I don't know that app, sorry. Plist is just an xml file with defined structure, so you should be able to edit that in any text editor of your choice. The wifiremote.xml file is nothing defined by WifiRemote, it is a remote mapping file that MediaPortal can read.

    Hello,
    Is it possible to send "Aspect Ratio" as a command? I see it in the wifiremote.xml file, but it does not fire when I try to send it using the plugin. Can I edit something to make that button work?

    Hi, I am looking at using anymote to replace my harmony universal remote in my home theatre. anymote supports sending network commands using UDP, TCP, HTTP GET and HTTP POST. I tried sending some basic commands using the TCP network command using the JSON syntax from the and didn't work.
    I have tried sending the following command on it's own
    {"Type":"command", "Command":"tvguide"}

    and then with the following Auth command sent followed by the command above.

    {"Type":"identify","Name":"My S7","Application":"anymote","Version","0.3.1.2","Authenticate":{"AuthMethod":"userpass","Password":"","User":""}

    Has anyone got the WIFIremote plugin to work with anymote or similar programs?

    thanks in advance

    Hi,

    are there any known issues with the Windows 10 anniversary update?
    I can't connect with Couchpotato or MPRemote S anymore, before the update everything worked fine.
    I'm using MP 1.15.0 and remote plugin 0.8.3.

    Hi Shukuyen,

    I am using MP also as radio but not from webstreams but via DVB-S.

    I wonder why the ChannelName will be sent in the status message as Title.
    The ChannelName (and ID) in the nowplaying message is wrong and I don't know where he gets this information from. Is this a bug?

    BR-KLASSIK is the correct playing channel in this case.

    Received message: {"Type":"status","IsPlaying":true,"IsPaused":false,"IsPlayerOnTop":false,"Title":"BR-KLASSIK","CurrentModule":"Radio","SelectedItem":"NDR 2","WindowId":30}​

    Received message: {"Type":"nowplaying","Duration":15524,"File":"F:\\Video\\Temp\\live4-0.ts.tsbuffer","Position":15523,"IsTv":false,"IsFullscreen":false,"MediaInfo":{"MediaType":"radio","MpExtId":"933","MpExtMediaType":12,"MpExtProviderId":0,"ChannelId":933,"ChannelName":"NDR Kultur","ArtistName":"","CurrentProgramId":0,"CurrentProgramName":null,"CurrentProgramDescription":null,"CurrentProgramBegin":"\/Date(-62135596800000+0100)\/","CurrentProgramEnd":"\/Date(-62135596800000+0100)\/","NextProgramId":0,"NextProgramName":null,"NextProgramDescription":null,"NextProgramBegin":"\/Date(-62135596800000+0100)\/","NextProgramEnd":"\/Date(-62135596800000+0100)\/","IsWebStream":false,"CurrentUrl":null}}
    Thanks!
