Hi

Wonder if anyone has had success controlling Samsung TVs via the TVs API using Prontoscript ? The current models don't have IR inputs and the remote they supply is bluetooth. There's a bit of python and other code around that uses the API to send button commands.

Thanks
Michael

Many models will accept RS-232 commands. Some will need a USB dongle to do this.

Are you sure that your Samsung doesn't have an IR receiver? I got a 4K Samsung TV last month. Its remote is bluetooth, but it still has an IR receiver. I used the Samsung IR codes that I got elsewhere from this forum, and the IR codes work fine. I looked into using the RS232 interface, but I could not find where to get Samsung's USB to RS232 cable. Online requests and phone calls led nowhere. Also, their RS232 API doesn't provide 2-way feedback (like querying its status), so there really was no advantage of using RS232 instead of just IR. I couldn't find a way to control it via IP.
