Windows 8 Remote Control Over Lan

Post by derektheman »

Hello. This is my first post.

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 and this is what I get when I try to run it (from Wireshark)

Code: Select all

POST /upnp/control/RenderingControl1 HTTP/1.1

SOAPACTION: urn:schemas-upnp-org:service:RenderingControl:1#SetMute

EDIT 2: It seems like this has been done in .NET before. Does anyone have the source code? The link doesnt work ... ung_Remote

Sorry, I can't help you. But I'm sure someone here can...
