    Slingbox directly controlling set-top over IP?

    MacPrince

      Hi.

      I'd like to suggest that a future version of the Slingbox firmware support (as an option) direct IP-based control of networked set-top boxes like those from DirecTV and TiVo. The protocols are already well-known and documented and in most cases the boxes advertise themselves on the local network.

       

      TiVo's TCP Remote Protocol

      DirecTV's Set-top Box HTTP Exported Functionality

       

      Thsi would allow users of supported servics to do away with their IR blasters and thus neaten up their home theater setups.
