To easily get around this inside of SC you can send a Wake On Lan command to the TV to wake it up and it works great. This apparently only works on 2016+ Samsung TVs. Using this I can send discrete commands for power off and power on. Everything else SC setups for you when you add the TV as a new device.
Oh, how I am hoping the AVS/Roomie Remote/Simple Control folks on here can help me. I am looking for a list of (hate to shout) 100% FULLY CONTROLLED IP TV's
I could have sworn I had found a list on one of the forums (here, simple control or irule forum), but I can't for the life of me find it anymore. If we don't have one, I would really like to start one.
A little background. After trying a few times over the years to fully automate house without breaking the bank, I gave up. I feel like now the technology has matured enough and there are enough companies out there to give everyone various options depending on your budget. In my scenario I will have a total of four TV's. My wife will be using the system 99% of the time, which means it has to be dang near flawless and bulletproof as far as working properly. No one likes a po'd wife or spouse
. BTW, wife already bought living room TV back during Black Friday as a surprise (Samsung UN55KU6300). I'm 99% sure I will use Simple Control (formerly Roomie). Mainly for ease of use for wife. The Samsung UN55KU6300 will be living room TV and we have not yet purchased any of the other TV's for bedrooms. Budget is a big concern as it is for most of us. Wife holds purse strings and would like to keep TV's around $400-600 range. No way she will spend $1500-2500 per TV for every room in the house.
I would like to have a 100% complete IP controlled system. There isn't a whole lot of other items in our system. Sonos speakers, NEST thermostat and smoke detectors, couple of security cameras, wireless locks and a pool automation system. Everything will work 100% IP, except for TV's. You would think it would be the opposite and TV's would be the first to have this feature
. Most TV's will work via IP, except for the one all important feature of turning the thing on! I have researched this till I am cross-eyed and still haven't found 100% IP controlled TV in my price range. Maybe it doesn't exist. Simple Control has a list of compatible devices, but every TV I lookup isn't on there list. Including the one my wife has already purchased (UN55KU6300). And I understand that Simple Control can't test every TV on the market to find out. I contacted a few manufacturers and that was about useless. Some had no idea what I was talking about and some just said no, no matter what model number I gave them and one of those is a 100% working IP controllable TV). Simple Control support was semi-helpful and there bottom line was get a Sony TV (heard that from several people). OK, I start looking at Sony's. Every TV I look up in my price range lacks full IP control, lol
. My wife will give me the death stare if I tell her we need to spend big money just to get a IP controllable TV.
So, with all that being said (sorry for the bellyaching) is there a list or can we start one with TV's that are 100% IP controllable? Manufacturer, model number and price paid would be a good start. I know I'm looking for a budget TV that is IP controllable, but I'm sure there are others that are looking for higher end TV's with the same feature. Therefore, no matter the price paid add it to the list and maybe we can get something started here. For those of you who recommended Sony TV's, what models do you have?
