I have the UN46ES6100 and I was wanting to control it over LAN from my Windows 8 computer through Visual Basic. I tried the "Remote Lan Control" just to see if this could work and it does not work for me. I have a couple android apps on my phone that can control my TV, so I know this is possible.
I have looked into it, but have found very little documentation. It looks like I have to first authenticate my computer's MAC address with the TV and then PUSH XML files to http://tvip:55000 . Is that correct? If so, what is the general format for the XML? Please help.
EDIT: I just tried this with Android using the code http://sourceforge.net/p/samygo/code/1286/tree/: and this is what I get when I try to run it (from Wireshark)
Code: Select all

EDIT 2: It seems like this has been done in .NET before. Does anyone have the source code? The link doesnt work http://wiki.samygo.tv/?title=Desktop_ap ... ung_Remote
