    No problem! There are very few stones unturned on this forum, so when there's somewhere I can make a contribution, I don't hesitate to pitch in!

    If the TV has a USB port, you can use a voltage detector on it. The GC100's can use the one on this page: http://www.globalcache.com/products/other/. I'm not sure if the GC unit you have supports that. Also, what kind of remote is it? You may be able to reprogram it to behave differently (discrete codes, etc.). I found with the Motorola/Arris cable boxes from Shaw the power draw with them on and off were the same, so I stopped turning them off. They also do not support discrete codes so they would always get out of sync, so leaving them on solved that problem.

    Cheers

    Well my dumb cable box remote has been programmed to turn off the cable box and the TV. Just that there is a pause in the emitters between turning off the cable box, then the TV like seconds later. So if you quickly turn off the cable box and the throw the remote on the table, often the TV never gets turned off (because you didn't hold the stupid thing pointing to the TV long enough).

    Why do you need to know if the TV is on? If it's to know to turn in on or off, there are discrete codes for on and off so if you send an on and it's on it will ignore the signal. Same for off.

    I have just tested Jim Bowie's script with various commands and it works perfectly.

    Thanks Jim!

    Sharp TV script

    Code:
    Imports System.Net
    
     Dim myStream As System.Net.Sockets.NetworkStream
        Dim clientSocket As System.Net.Sockets.TcpClient
    
    
        Public Sub Main(param As Object)
            clientSocket = New System.Net.Sockets.TcpClient
            clientSocket.Connect("192.168.1.69", 10002) 'change to your TV IP
            
            myStream = clientSocket.GetStream()
            Dim outStream
            outStream = System.Text.Encoding.ASCII.GetBytes("POWR0001" + vbCrLf)
            myStream.Write(outStream, 0, outStream.Length)
            myStream.Flush()
    
            clientSocket.Close()
        End Sub

    Hi,

    Did you ever manage to control the TV via Homeseer?

    Easiest way probably is that plugin but there are scripts out there that will do similar, getting two way TCP returns I found painful to do and that is where the plugin might come in better. If you search the board for SocketSendText.vb you will find a script example of sending TCP commands and that is a script I have used a good number of times.

    Sharp Aquos TV IP Control

    Hello,

    I'm looking into adding some basic control for my Sharp Aquos TV. This TV has provisions for basic commands via IP in a clear text raw TCP session.

    Surprisingly, the commands are pretty well documented in the user manual. I setup the TV tonight and I can connect to it with a terminal program and issue the commands I want, and the TV responds as i want it to.

    Now i'm just curious what is the easiest way to have HS3 make a connection and issue these commands.

    I checked out drule's ip/serial connector here http://board.homeseer.com/showthread...17#post1132517 and it looks like that might be a good solution, but i'm not sure.

    There is a 3 minute timeout on the connection so it would either need a keep alive or some provision to initiate the session, send command and then close session.

    Is anyone doing something similar and have any advice?

    Thanks!
Working...
