Playing with Sony Bravia model 2013

So, we’ve bought a nice Sony Bravia TV (W6), featuring the today’s “default networking” options.

But I want to control it from my Windows Phone 7 device πŸ™‚
The current sony bravia compatible apps, don’t actually work on the new generation… So, we’re figuring out how and what the 2013 models are actually capable off!

So, where to start…
Sony has it’s own official app for android, and everything works fine…
When you combine this with WireShark, or at least tcpdump, this gives a very nice insight in what happens.

So, after trying some things out on my tablet, I started analysing the results from tcpdump.

First results came out like this:

A rest interface listens on an http-webserver, while upnp-traffic goes on 52323.

Using a rest client,, you can run some commands, and simulate the commands from above

Next in the house comes Intel’s Device Spy for UPnP technologies, or a more up to date versions from

upnpspyAnd there you notice the function “X_SendIRCC”.
This in combination with the commands we found above enables us to do what we want πŸ™‚

For the moment I’ve teamed up withΒ etrosce from BraviaControl and Falco from Sony Virtual Remote Control to figure out what’s going on!
Sony Virtual Remote Control actually works (it has a cached version of the earlier found commands),
So, if we can “port” it somehow to WP7, things would be cooool πŸ™‚

Anyway, I’ll keep you posted!

    I know it would be awesome to do, but …
    – If you don’t have CI+ module for your tv, you’re still stuck to the Digibox remote
    – Grabbing your remote, hitting the button and throwing the remote away is still way faster than taking your phone, waking it up, starting the app, hitting the button and gently putting away your precious WP7 πŸ™‚

      Jeaaaah, Trueeee, but it’s still cooler πŸ™‚
      (I heard somewhere telenet was going to release CI+ modules?)
