Hi there,

due to this forum and pjnewman perlscript he posted in this thread viewtopic.php?f=12&t=1792
I was able to write a Dashboard Widget for Mac OS X to control (my) Samsung TV. Thanks!

Tested on UExxD8090 but I guess it works for all C and D-Series TVs.
Unfortunately not all buttons work because I couldn't determine the right KEY_Codes but the important keys are working.

This is the first release. Comments are welcome :-)

UPDATE:
25.11.2011 Version 0.9
All buttons work now, excepting the search button.

HI nlx,

which TV and FW Version do you have?
On my UE46D8090 (tested FW till T-GAP8DEUC-1018.1) it didn't matter which string you use as mac address, so I took "Samsung Reemote Widget".
Anyhow, does anyone know a simple way how to get the mac address for the network adapter on the same subnet as the TVs IP?
