This actually works! I'm controlling Google TV via the Sharp's IP Control connection. If anyone is interested, I added the free home automation software (called Premise) I use to my signature.
Since I use Premise to control the TV using Sharp's IP Control protocol, I can pause TV when my phone rings, interface all controls with a web browser etc... I'll post the module for the Sharp on http://cocoontech.com/forums/forum/5...-home-control/
when I finish it if anyone wants to use it.
This is beyond the scope of this forum, but my plan is to use an RF remote to control the Sharp and CEC devices connected to it. Signal path is like this:
1. Use presses pause on RF remote (customized Universal MX-900 remote)
2. RF signal is received by the MSC-400
3. MSC-400 sends a serial command to my Premise server
4. Premise interprets the command and sends the corresponding IP Command to the Sharp, but can also do other things at the same time like send lighting commands to increase brightness when I hit pause or stop.

This would appear to mean you can control whatever is connected to the Sharp via the Sharps network cable like this:
Sharp IP command remote key pause rcvd over network -> pause command sent using HDMI-CEC to selected source -> selected source responds if HDMI-CEC is implemented on source device.
I'm not sure if these commands will work on the 735 as I just returned it today... I know none of these were listed in the older LC-70LE735 manual. The 83x and 73x are so 2011 (or more like 2005) when it comes to IP Control apparently!
