Also missing IRCODE BACK
which does menu back
Anyone find a way to either force quickplay on/off or toggle it with a direct ir code?
I am currently sending IRCODE PLAY IRCODE SELECT, but it will fail if any menu stuff is showing.
Use CLEAR on a remote or IRCODE CLEAR to clear any onscreen "Stuff" beforehand.
Toggling quickplay seems to be working great with this:
IRCODE CLEAR\r\nIRCODE PLAY\r\nIRCODE SELECT\r\n
Is there a certain delay required between successive commands?
I am finally adding all the features I used to have with a media center setup... Need a short skip for between downs for teams with hurry up offenses.
I was simulating a 16 second skip by sending a single string of:
IRCODE ADVANCE\r\nIRCODE REPLAY\r\nIRCODE REPLAY\r\n
I was testing on olympics between serves on beach volleyball and it seemed to work sometimes but other times it did not seem to honor the ADVANCE. Anyone else doing similar?
Is there a list of the keyboard commands for Network Remote? So far, I can tell that 30-sec skip is =, Instant Replay is -, play/pause is [space]. FF and REW seem to be ] and [, respectively.
Yeah, it's in the README. Also under Help in the Mac version. Also displayable via a command-line option, "--keys".
They don't read those and then later complain that there is no manual.
Thanks! Sorry for not noticing a README.
Is there a way to query the power/standby state of a TiVo via TCP?
I noticed the protocol returns CH_STATUS when it is on live TV, but haven't been able to find any other way to tell if it is on when watching a recording.
Zombie, yes, but I was working on something for my wife and getting into this subject finally.
1) how were you "finding" these new IRCODES? Maybe I missed some querying technique somewhere in the 35 pages of this thread?
2) This is the only mention of "TUNER_SWITCH" regarding this feature in the history of the Earth. If it's the tuner-swapping equivalent of SETCH, it might be very useful to what I was working on. Can you say any more about that? Is it an IRCODE, a command, what?
I scanned a copy of tivoapp for strings. Shh.
I haven't tried it. But, almost everything is an IRCODE, except for KEYBOARD.
Interesting...yes, it is valid for IRCODE or KEYBOARD... evidenced in that bad arguments return "INVALID_KEY" but TUNER_SWITCH does not.
However it doesn't do anything at all on my 2-tuner premiere or my 6-tuner Roamio Plus.
FYI, the one useful thing I have for my intended project:
If you're watching "livetv:" stream in HME, "SETCH" (and I presume FORCECH) works to effect what livetv: is streaming.
All the other commands seem to be the same as just using the remote - it either takes you out of HME (teleport type keys) or is sent for HME to handle it.
echo SETCH 108 | telnet 192.168.0.10 31339
change channel on command line.
Just integrated all controls into Home assistant and my amazon Echo can also control all of it as well using emulated hue.
"Alexa, turn e4 on"
Alexa, Order me a Pizza.
Interesting. I'll have to look into Home Assistant. The one (only one?) complex setup portion of my TiVo skill for the Echo is setting up the self-signed certificate and getting the Alexa server to "talk" to the alexa-app-server on your home network via HTTPS. I wonder if something like this could make that setup simpler ... (or might at least give me some ideas).
Yeah, that's what I'm doing myself but other people trying out my Alexa skill don't necessarily have their own domain and thus need to try self-signed certificates uploaded to the Alexa Developer site.
I've been playing around with Home Assistant today and have it pretty much working at home. It's neat as a centralized monitor and there are a lot of components to explore. I haven't gotten to the Alexa/Hue portion yet. All that being said, I don't think setting up HASS is any less complicated than the other hoops you have to jump through to get the TiVo Control skill working in the first place ... but I was able to get the Lambda HTTPS proxy function working (that I found reading about HASS), so that's another possible alternative.
I'm trying to do this with Google Home, and IFTTT can you be of assistance?
I just got started on my THR22 Alexa skill. I need to look at this "Home Assistant" you guys are talking about. I don't really want to use the automation type, because then you have to create a Lambda function on AWS which is not free. Using a custom skill I have to say "Alexa, tell tivo living room put on BBC America" I have two tivos that are controllable through the one Alexa skill. It would be nice if there were some way to tell which Alexa device is making the request, then I could set living room or bedroom as the default for the device to eliminate extra words.
The next step is to make it search. Has anyone tried something like "TELEPORT TIVOCENTRAL, IRCODE UP UP UP UP UP RIGHT RIGHT, KEYBOARD blahblahblah" to get to the search? I'm just trying to avoid failure if people know it won't work or is really slow etc. Once I get it done, I'll share the code. Though it does require an outwardly facing web server running PHP.
I just looked this up:
AWS Lambda | Pricing
Would that not be sufficient?
