PHPTv

A Command-Line Remote control for Sony Bravia Android TV written in PHP.

It was one of those evenings where I could not find the fu****g remote for my TV. So instead of doing the work I'm supposed to do. I decided to procrastinate by writing this little program that allows you to control your Sony Android TV over the command line.

Installation

If you are using composer you can make use of global packages.

$ composer global require mario-deluna/phptv

Make sure that you have exported the vendors bin path:

$ export PATH="$PATH:$HOME/.composer/vendor/bin"

You can also just download and use the prebuild .phar.

$ wget https://github.com/mario-deluna/PHPTv/blob/v1.0.1/phptv.phar?raw=true -O phptv.phar

And if you trust me, add it to your bin dir.

$ sudo chmod a+x phptv.phar
$ sudo mv phptv.phar /usr/local/bin/phptv

Setting up the Pre-Shared Key (PSK)

  1. Go To "Settings" > "Network" > "Home network setup" > "IP control"
  2. Set "Authentication" to "Normal and Pre-Shared Key"
  3. Choose a "Pre-Shared Key". (Default is 0000)

Now you should be ready to use the remote.

Usage

To start the remote just enter phptv <the ip of your tv> <psk>.

$ phptv 192.168.1.42 0000

This is an absolute "just for fun" and "because I can" project. You will be off much faster just using the normal Remote. I still hope you like this little goof.
