JvcControl - Free JVC Projector Ip Control Software

If anyone's interested, while doing some scripting on my system, I whipped up a quick little utility to control your JVC projector over your network from your windows PC. It's a quick command line utility that allows you to pass in the 2 digit remote control code and it will send it via network commands. List of all commands are included in the download file as well as source code.

You can download it here if you want it: http://www.hifiandtheater.com/jvccon...p-control-app/

Usage:
Run from command line passing the 2 digit command to execute.
JvcControl {Command}

Example: to switch to USER1:
JvcControl 6C

Setup:
Connect your projector to the network and enter its IP address into the
file JvcControlIp.txt which should be in the same folder as JvcControl.exe.

For help connecting your projector to your network see the manual. But
it’s advised to set the projector to a static IP address or assign it a
static IP in the router’s DHCP routing table. Verify connection to the
projector in command prompt using “ping” command. If you cannot ping
the projector, then you cannot communicate with it.
ping 192.168.1.10 <– for example.

There is no error checking. If you don’t specify command, nothing will happen.
If you specify garbage for a command, garbage gets sent to the projector and
who knows what happens.

The command list is for the RS1000/N5, RS2000/N7, RS3000/NX9 but JVC hasn’t switch
command codes in ages only adds them. So if your projector supports the function,
the code should work.

Audio: Anthem mrx720 running 7.1.4, McIntosh MC-303, MC-152, B&W 802d3 LR, B&W HTM1D3 center, B&W 805d3 surround, B&W 702S2 rear, B&W 706s2 x 4 shelf mounted for atmos, 2 sub arrays both infinite baffle: 4x15 fi audio running on behringer ep4000 + 4x12 fi audio running on 2nd ep4000.

I have updated to v1.1 on the download link. It now will auto detect the IP address if you run it without any commands. JvcControlIp.txt is no longer required and projector should be automatically found. You can still override this behavior and create a JvcControlIp.txt and enter your IP manually if the auto detection fails.

Did you forget to include the source code in 1.1 zip?

I'd like to port this to Linux for my own use and the source code would be useful.

Thanks!

If you have the ability to use Python consider grabbing the Arve tools:
https://github.com/arvehj/jvcprojectortools
JVC_command, jvc_network and jvc_protocol.py implement a very complete 2 way interface for controlling and getting information out of a JVC projector.
