URL to send remote control commands to a DMP

Hello. Could anyone tell me what commands you should send over port 7777 to a stand alone DMP to emulate someone pressing buttons on a remote control in front of the DMP?

David,


What exactly are you trying to accomplish?  What is your end game for

wanting to do this.


The remote control feature is supported with the actual hardware remote

and remote access via an iphone, itouch, or mobile device via a web app.


The DMP remote controls are not support via the desktop via a browser.

That said you can play around with the app from the desktop but the

button mappings may not operate as you would expect (not supported)

but it does function.


Applet should be reachable via

http://dmm.company.com:8080/etv-remotecontrol-webapp/app/dmpSelector.htm



Cheers!

I am trying to create an advanced task in DMM that sends a DMP or group of DMPs into ETV mode, and then emulates the pressing of 'ENTER' three times on the remote control so that the TV is taken to channel 1 in full screen.

I have the command set up to set the DMP to ETV mode, and the command for inserting pauses, but not the command to actually emulate the enter button on the remote control.

We are doing is because, in our building, we often find that we set DMPs to ETV mode and then they don't get used for days. The ETV front menu causes us burn in problems with our TVs.

Also, in the longer term, we'd like to develop an in house application which can be used to control a TV while it is in ETV mode, and it would be useful to know what commands can be used to emulate the remote control button presses.

Hi: was wondering if anyone is able to answer this question, or knows where it might be documented?

You can use DMP MIBs to execute or simulate the DMP Remote Buttons.

That works - thank you. I have marked the question as answered.

I have a follow up which is about putting a pause into a System Task.

I have created a System Task on the DMM with the following request:

init.BROWSER_CMD=file:///LOGO/index.html&init.TVZILLA_URL=&init.STARTUP_URL=&mib.save=1&init.BROWSER_CMD=http://x.x.x.x:8080/etv-flash-webapp/app/etv_24_.htm&mng.command=write+sh+FG+sleep+15&mng.command=write+xfake+Return&mng.command=write+xfake+Return&mng.command=write+xfake+Return

I think this task should do the following:

  1. Stop all applications running on the DMP
  2. Launch the ETV app
  3. Wait for 15 seconds (to give the ETV app time to start)
  4. Emulate the 'Enter' button on the remote control being pressed three times (so that the DMP ends up displaying the first channel in the ETV app in full screen)

The problem is that the 15 second pause seems to happen before the ETV app launches, rather than after, despite it being after in the request string.

I'm wondering if there is a better technique for doing this?

David

David,


I remember correctly, the reason why you wanted to do this is because you didn't

want the CAST menu displaying in an area for an extended period on time to prevent

burn in.


I would suggest playing a playlist or video by default first and then configure one

of the remote's colored buttons to activate CAST.


This way the DMP is displaying some DEFAULT content for viewing when

folks are not around.  This will avoid burn in.  Then when folks come in

and want to use CAST, they simply hit RED button to enable CAST

then you can set the BLUE button to GOTO the default content.


I hope this helps!


T.


EXAMPLE:


ASSIGN A BUTTON TO CAST

https://admin:default@a.b.c.d:7777/set_param?irasrv.key_RED=ira%20add%201%20sh%201%20RED%20bg%20wget%20-q%20%22localhost%3a7777%2Fset_param%3Finit.BROWSER_CMD%3Dhttp://dmm.company.com:8080/etv-flash-webapp/app/etv_24_.htm%22


where:


VARIABLES

=========

  admin           = DMP Web Account Username

  default         = DMP Web Account Password

  a.b.c.d         = IP Address of DMP

  dmm.company.com = FQDN of the Digital Media Manager(DMM) Appliance



** Use the Following MIB to see the NEW CONFIGURED Remote Mappings


https://admin:default@a.b.c.d:7777/get_param?p=*.*&init.pop_enable=false



** Save NEW CONFIGURED Remote Mappings on DMP


   -> Use the ADVANCED TASK to SAVE the DMP Settings.

   -> or Directly on the DMP using the DMP-DM Web Admin

   -> or HTTP MIB

         ie.

         https://admin:default@a.b.c.d:7777/set_param?mib.save=1

         https://admin:default@a.b.c.d:7777/set_param?mib.save=1&mng.reboot=1

This is great Tomas, very helpful.

However a little trouble understanding how to get non-default xfake commands mapped and issued.

Example, above we see:

irasrv.key_SHOW_IP T_STRING ira add 1 sh    1 SHOW_IP              mn mng start showip 7000

Yet no default xfake map to issue via HTTPS - any assistance on syntax for issuing such a command? Would the same syntax apply with commands such as Mute or Power (although mng.reboot=1 works great to restart)?

Chris,

Could you please explain the end goal of what exactly are you trying to do ? When you say non-default xfake command , what exactly are you thinking about ? Something like switching between Digital Signs to Cast and vice-versa with a remote key ?

Sagar Dhanrale

Sagar,

Sure - really trying to get HTTPS commands for every button to be able to quickly and remotely issue commands as needed.

So when we issue (example) https://admin:default@a.b.c.d:7777/set_param?mng.command=write+xfake+b ..

The DMP receives "blue button pressed" - right?

Problem is how do I achieve this fake button press via web request for SHOW_IP, Power, Mute and others that I don't see write+xfake+COMMAND above?

So the simple question: what is the URL to issue SHOW_IP , Power , Mute commands to a DMP?

Great! Thank you - I see now,

irasrv.key_SHOW_IP T_STRING ira add 1 sh    1 SHOW_IP              mn mng start showip 7000

Shows that ma mng start showip 7000 becomes mng.command=start+showip+7000 - perfect now I understand how to turn all options into HTTPS issued commands.

Here it is , if it helps :

"Show IP" ="https://admin:DMP_Password@DMP_IP:7777/set_param?mng.command=start+showip+7000"

Great, thank you - what about on the DMP 4310?

Since there is no browser, how would we send command to SHOW IP or PAUSE to the 4310?

Chris,

The DMP 4310 does not have a browser client to render the HTTP content but it does have an internal Web server . The commands will work for the DMP 4310.
