Hello , help controlling tvs from via wifi
hi ,anybody knows ,about if i can turn on and turn off then of course, change programs etc,.... but turn them on and turn them off, is what we need ,from a cellphone or a computer, controlling and monitoring the screen state via wifi , our question is what is the hardware or product you suggest to buy .thx
Have you got Unified TV? That will work to turn on/off & change channels from a cell phone, provided the phone has an Infrared Blaster. A lot of Android phones have them built in, I know Samsung S6 has. Definitely not Apple products. But you can get IR Blasters that plug into your phone's headphone jack, here is a good article, I noticed no.4 is compatible with iDevices:
As far as being able to control and/or monitor from the PC, I think that is beyond the Unified TV scope. With Unified Remote, there is a lightweight version of a web-based client that you can use from the PC, but Unified TV doesnt work from a server. You can however have control like that with PC programs like Eventghost, but then it would need to talk to your IR Blaster, which I think would only be possible if you had a wifi-enabled IR Blaster (like no.2 in the link above), or an Android phone with one built in.
Hope I haven't blasted too much info ;)
