Sharp TV Network Remote  (Indigo Plugin)

Contributed by: RogueProeliator

Overview

This plugin allows Indigo to control Sharp AQUOS televisions via their network (IP) control protocol. Sharp's protocol is very robust and, as a result, this plugin is able to both read and set nearly every aspect of the television - from volume/channel through configurations such as picture mode, aspect ratio, etc.

Installation

  1. Download the plugin, saving it to your harddrive.
  2. Unzip the download, revealing the plugin itself and a set of sample graphics to use in creating control pages.
  3. Double click the SharpTvNetworkRemote.indigoPlugin file and allow Indigo to install the plugin normally.
  4. Create the Sharp TV device in Indigo after you have setup the TV on the network (ethernet or WiFi). Please see the More Info link above for details on configuring you TV.
  5. Once the device is created and the TV is on the network, configure the TV to allow Power-ON commands via the Indigo menu: _Plugin -> Sharp TV Network Remote Plugin -> Setup TV for Network-On_ feature. Again, see the More Info link for additional information on this task.

Usage

Create control pages to allow full control of the Sharp TV from Indigo! All features of the physical remote AND those found in Sharp's mobile app are available; the plugin even provides additional features not found in either of those. If you have any questions or problems, please post in the forum available via the More Info link.
