Android Remote Control for MeTv

Asked by mfussi on 2011-09-08

Hello,

i'm interested in programming a android remote control for Me Tv. I'm very tired getting of my couch all the time just to switch channels.

Is the actual server implementation capable supporting a remote control over UDP? What would be the best practice to solve this problem?

Greetings
Markus

There is no coder left to continu the work. The last stable version is
1.3.6. The branch 2.x was a version with new bases: VLC instead of Xine,
separation of backend/frontend, etc, but there is a few things yet to
implement.

So, control via UDP (or web, like xbmc remote) is compromised.

Maybe via ssh, I don't know much about Android

Cheers,
Fred

No, he's ok. But now, with 3 kids, he have less time. And me-tv is as good
as Micheal want it to be.

When I'll have more time, I'll do some cleaning and restart the work on
me-tv.

I now got my hands at the me-tv source, i added a dbus interface to it. Connected it with a small webservice which serves a android app. It works out pretty well.
