iPhone, iPod Touch iPad app to control WDLXTV

Yes, this is your place to show off. Let us see what you're doing with your device[s]

Oooh, this forum thread looks exciting! I haven't downloaded your app yet, but I plan on doing it as soon as I get home from work this evening. This is very exciting to me because currently I use a USB wired keyboard to type in my search criteria for youtube and the like. From the looks of your demo video, I am thinking I won't have to go out and buy a wireless keyboard to control the WDTV+ afterall to get rid of the messy wired keyboard clutter. This way, I can use my Touch as the keyboard. Perhaps you just saved me $80... are you sure you want to just make this a free app? ;)

Did you ever make a decision on whether or not you were going to open-source this project? I have never used objective-c but I use java and C++ on a daily basis. According to :!: the source of all knowledge :!: wikipedia, Objective C is just C with Smalltalk type messages drizzled over the top. Doesn't look too bad. In any case, I browsed around the subversion server and was unable to find the source code, but I would be interested to take a look at it if it is available for public viewing.

On a slightly related note, anyone else out there who is looking for ways to manipulate or control the WDLXTV or your Entertainment-network from your iDevice, I have found a few apps that have proved fairly helpful to me. Note that all of these apps are free.

Ping Lite - Contains networking tools such as the ability to ping a certain address; pinging an entire subnet (this is cool... it can ping a full range of addresses and shows you which ones are responding... i.e. 192.168.0.1 - 192.168.0.255. It shows a matrix of the addresses, and the active ones show up green. It keeps scanning until you ask it to stop :D) It lets you perform a traceroute function on a particular network address. Lastly, it has a Telnet client built it.

NetAwake - An app that allows you to send off a Wake On LAN magic packet to a specific device. (say, a NAS containing all of your video / music) Very simple, very easy to use interface. I know that there is an automatic feature somewhere in the WDLXTV firmware that lets you do this on device boot, but I haven't had time to figure out how to turn that on yet. This is a good tool in the mean-time.

Mobile Admin - This app is designed by the folks at Rove, and is meant to be a tool to manipulate their Mobile Admin server. However, it works fine for other applications as well. It includes a very nice SSH client and a Telnet client. (I like this interface a little more than I like the one from Ping Lite) This one will allow you to cache your username and passwords for quick login via the SSH or Telnet. It also provides a Remote Desktop (RDP) client. I haven't used this feature, so I am not sure how well it works.

Anyways, I have found these three to be invaluable tools for manipulating my WDLXTV and network without having to power on my desktop.
Thanks!
Jim

Hey guys thanks for the great feedback i am sorry to say that there is currently no "real" beta or alpha version yet and that it is not available for download anywhere. I recently had to take a break from this project and tend to some of my other projects but now i am officially back and finishing the app so expect regular updates and a beta version soon. I would say within a couple months, right now my main goal is to find out what i have already done, what needs fixing and what needs to be added. I think the first thing i'll finish doing is the music control with interactive feedback on the remote. :mrgreen:

Expect an update from me in about a week or so. :)

This looks brilliant,
If you need a beta tester let me know, My iphones jailbroke so I can just ssh the app to my device before you release it via the app store etc to get some feedback for you,
Excellent work,
I've already got the wdtvlive remote from the app store but this looks mint,
Keep it up mate:-)

I've built something kind of like this that runs on the WDTV itself. A "web app" as it were.

It has some similar functionalities like a gesture pad. You'll notice the gestures navigate differently based on what orientation the device is, this was intentional and allows for flexible interaction.

To get this to work, simply extract this file and put the contents into the addons directory of the webend (/var/www/addons/) using ftp. (the ext3 firmware is required). Then, using your iphone, navigate to http://YOUR-WDTV-IP/addons/touch-remote . For best experience, be sure to enable full-screen mode by adding it as a bookmark onto your home screen

Seriously dude this is a wonderful idea and you're a very generous person to devote your time and effort to the scene for free. I cant wait to fire this up and see how it works. Cheers :D
I plan on being kicked off in the near future :o
