Request for info on IP control for current Panasonic TVs

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I would like to configure IP control for my Panasonic TC-P60GT50 TV through my Redeye control setup. I have tried the Viera remote control application and it is very functional showing IP works nicely. My plan is to integrate a few commands into my startup/shutdown sequences and have some other functions available using my Redeye control. Currently I am using IR, but want to switch to IP.

I was wondering if anyone could provide or point me to information describing Panasonic's IP protocol used on these TVs. I have seen various info on attempts to do this, but my programming skills are dated so I really could use some help on the basics - protocol, path, command structure, port, and possibly code/key strings.

There are a lot of panny IP commands documented HERE for blu-ray players. You may be able to start there and figure out the ones for a tv or at least contact the members involved to see if they have found them. I was involved in the blu-ray command reverse engineering a little, but don't know what the tv codes would be.

Good luck. If you find a solution, please post it.

I have come across info on the Panny BD players and also code sections for controlling a tv, but I have not gotten anything to work just yet. The Redeye folks want protocol info before they will assist - otherwise they are very helpful.

Networking was never a discipline of mine so using scanning software to find the open port on the TV has failed me. I assume it would be 8080, but I can't verify it.

Thanks for the response and if I get some good info, I will certainly post.

Not sure if you are open to a change of system, but the Panasonic TV IP control is all built-in to Roomie. Trying to reverse engineer and implement the network protocol yourself sounds like a lot of work when you could just have it working.

I wanted a control setup that could utilize our Android phones, pc and mac laptops ... otherwise I would have looked closely at Roomie and some other solutions. Certainly would have been nice to have the solution as part of the suite.

Did you ever make any headway with this? I'm trying to do the same exact thing with my Panasonic TV and Redeye device.
