Sony Bravia Remote Control Module
This package helps interface with a sony bravia Android powered smart tv.
This program attempts to talk to the bravia tv by sending IRCC signals through the network and authenticating via a preshared key. To send signals you need to know your tv's IP Address, Port (defaults to 80), and auth-key (defaults to 0000).
To connect to your Sony TV you need to know the local IP address (e.g. 192.168.1.2) of the TV. If possible, set it up as a static IP to prevent it from changing. This can be done at the router level.
You can connect to your TV remotely as easily as locally but with using your external IP (e.g. 73.17.832.11) address and setting up port forwarding on your router.
To allow the TV to accept signals you have to send an auth key. This is configurable on the TV itself and defaults to 0000Setting up pre-shared auth-key Instructions
