Hmm, something's off. I tried the windows app (in windows 7 instead of 8 - maybe that's the issue), and it doesn't work with my H6400 TV (sees the TV but can't connect to it). I did a packet capture to see what's going on, and the discovery goes well (over upnp), but the app tries to connect to port 55000, which for my TV is closed:

Code: Select all

adrianp@stingray:~$ telnet 192.168.1.60 55000
Trying 192.168.1.60...
telnet: Unable to connect to remote host: Connection refused
The thing is, based on the upnp messages sent, the TV doesn't advertise port 55000, but instead port 8001 with a url base of /ms/1.0/:

But when I try to do a GET on that port/url, I manage to crash the HTTPD server/process:

@Wolfgan: Can you tell me if you ran the app from windows 8, or from windows 7 (maybe it makes a difference)? Also, you mentioned a third-party android app capable of controlling H series - can you share the name/a link? Also, what software version is your TV? Mine is 2602.2

I too would like to get some basic control over the TV (ideally from a linux command line so I can script commands in).

Did you try samyGOrc and/or libSchedulePVR? There you have schedulepvr.sh which allows for a loooot of control over TV :)
I do NOT support "latest fw" at ALL. If you have one you should block updates on router and wait for it to STOP being "latest":)
If you want me to help you please paste FULL log(s) to "spoiler"/"code" bbcodes or provide link(s) to pasted file(s) on http://ctrlv.it/ Otherwise "NO HELP"!!!
If you want root DISABLE internet access to your device!!!!
DO NOT EVER INSTALL FIRMWARE UPGRADE !!!!

@sectroyer - it's not rooted yet - I'm (patiently) waiting for you to release the newer root method for it :)

In the mean time I'm poking it with sticks to see what happens :)

Also - update: I installed windows 8 in a VM (bridged) and it behaves in the same way: TV is detected but the app says "Network connection failed" when trying to connect.

Both in extended service menu and in router. So far it hasn't updated to a newer firmware than 2602.2 (at least 27xx exists for my model).

did you check the link I posted to see if route blocking was okay?

Do you mean this?

Code: Select all

adrianp@stingray:~$ dig msecnd.net | egrep "IN\s+A\s+"
msecnd.net.		0	IN	A	127.0.0.1
adrianp@stingray:~$ dig samsungotn.net | egrep "IN\s+A\s+"
samsungotn.net.		0	IN	A	127.0.0.1
adrianp@stingray:~$ dig www.samsungotn.net | egrep "IN\s+A\s+"
www.samsungotn.net.	0	IN	A	127.0.0.1
adrianp@stingray:~$ dig test.samsungotn.net | egrep "IN\s+A\s+"
test.samsungotn.net.	0	IN	A	127.0.0.1
Haven't tried to do a firmware update from the menu yet. I don't know if it will ask for confirmation (in case it manages to find a newer firmware), but I can give it a shot.

@mad_ady I run the Smart View 2.0 app on win7 ( http://www.samsung.com/uk/support/smartview2/) for the quick test. Not super stable, but it worked (at least the remote and play to features, not so the TV 2nd screen functionality)

This is the android app I was commenting on: https://play.google.com/store/apps/deta ... ma.tremote
It recently added a couple of additional commands for the H series, so I assume the author is reverse eng the protocol.

I hope it helps, Wolf

Thank you both for your replies.
@sectroyer: your test fails for me. I need to learn how to block a whole domain instead of a single name (on openwrt). I will follow up this discussion in the other thread.

@Wolfgan: it looks like the windows app i was using is the 1.0 version which doesn't support h series.

Regarding the android app - could you also share the apk please? The app is not available in my country (Romania). I will also contact the app developer.

Thanks again
