after successfully implementing Onkyo's protocol for remote controlling receivers, I turned towards my new Panasonic BDT-310 Bluray player. It doesn't have a serial port but of course it does have a network connection so there should be a way to communicate with it. So I send an email to the Panasonic support but they said that that was not possible and the only way to do remote control the device (other than using the actual remote control ;-) was VIERA link via a Panasonic TV (which I don't have). However, that is obviously horsecrap as the iPhone App shows (sorry, first post, can't give you guys the link). Though I have to admit that I haven't tried it yet, but from what the description says there is no need for a Panasonic TV to use it.
So I ran a portscan on the player and it revealed that the ports 80 and 60606 are open (although no web server seems to run on port 80). I can connect to the receiver on port 60606 but without any knowledge of the protocol that of course didn't get me very far.
So my question now is: does anyone have the protocol specification or knows a nice Panasonic technician who could supply those? The other option would be to reverse engineer the iPhone app's network traffic which I would very much like to avoid :-)
Thanks in advance!
