Sony TV Stuff

It's necessary to register your computer with the TV in order to use it. You may also need to turn on IPCC. Also, "later" TVs are needed for this; specifics are not really something I care to dig up. I have a 70" 4K TV and this works so far.

  • Get your TV and the device meant to control it, onto the same network segment.
  • You power up the TV by sending a wake-on-lan packet to its MAC address. You'll need to use the Systems Information screen to get that.
  • All other controls are done via the TV's IP address, using HTTP.

Get the list of commands

  • curl --silent -XPOST -d '{"method":"getRemoteControllerInfo","params":[],"id":10,"version":"1.0"}' | python -m json.tool

Send a command

You'll need to use the list of commands from above, if you want the TV to do anything for you.
  • curl -w "%{http_code}" --silent -XPOST http://$1/sony/IRCC -d "$cmd" -H 'Content-Type: text/xml; charset=UTF-8' -H 'SOAPACTION: "urn:schemas-sony-com:service:IRCC:1#X_SendIRCC"' -H "X-Auth-PSK: 0000"
