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 🙂
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, after trying some things out on my tablet, I started analysing the results from tcpdump.
First results came out like this: http://mendelonline.be/sony/sony.txt
A rest interface listens on an http-webserver, while upnp-traffic goes on 52323.
Using a rest client, https://addons.mozilla.org/En-us/firefox/addon/restclient/, 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 https://sites.google.com/site/opensoftwareprojects/dev-tools-for-upnp
For the moment I’ve teamed up with 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 🙂
Anyway, I’ll keep you posted!
