Android application: taSageTV

Tallus Android SageTV allows you to monitor your SageTV Server, by browsing your Favorites, Scheduled recordings, etc. It also doubles up as a remote control, to navigate all your Client(s) and/or Extender(s), start/stop/pause playback, etc. All this through the comfort of your Android phone or tablet.

Streaming has been implemented through VLC and other test options, but actual playback is dependent on the installed media player on the Android device.

The instructions are provided on the support wiki while the latest version is available here or through the Android Market.

Demo videos

Here is a video of the version 1.73, which might be slightly different from the current version...

I like the looks of this alot, BUT:

I'd be more likely to give this a try - and buy eventually - if it used some of the existing access methods - either of the web-servers or whatever else is out - as opposed to the TCP connection thing you created for this. I'm leery of installing 'unproven' stuff on my server......

btl.

Actually, the basis of the SageTCPServer has been created by Beelzerob about 2-3 years ago, and it was based on NielM's webserver. It does pre-date some of the other alternatives... It has been used for 2 CQC plugins, for a MainLobby plugin, for a plugin of a non released Home Automation application and taSageTV, so it's not like I just created it last week...

EDIT: Also 2-3 persons have shown interest to accessing SageTCPServer directly for their use, but I never got much details...

That looks pretty cool. I notice that your screenshots don't show the WiFi enabled. Can I assume that you are working external over the wireless connection then?

Those screenshots are of the emulator, so you have to take the Android's control icons with a grain of salt...

You could sit in an Apple store for the duration. They probably wouldn't mind.

To actually provide something of value to the thread - I'll forward to autoboy. I know he has a Droid and would probably test this out.

If you're using 64bit windows and an Intel cpu with VT-x, you could always install vmware player and then google for "osx 10.6.2 vmware player".

For the ones having video sync issues... If you are using a popular metadata extractor that puts a 12k+ characters description on each of your movies, which includes the whole credits and all, that is a problem... The newest SageTCPServer (1.2.5) should reduce some of those issues (i.e. it cuts at "Written by"). Another possibility is that you have a very big list (Photo would do the same), which will only be addressed once I break down the display like the Music list...

A network security friend and I were talking this weekend and we thought of something that you might want to add somewhere.

VLC is allowed to exist and stream home users content by having a blanket disclaimer stating that it is just a media player and that the user is responsible for ownership and all legal ramifications if taSageTV is used to stream to parties other than the owner of said media.

You know, something along those lines.

Better safe than sorry when it comes to the MPAA, right?

Well, technically VLC is doing the streaming, so I'm not sure why we would need anything... That's kinda like Google map displaying a warning that they are not responsible if thieves use it to plan their bank heist...

Hmm, we live in a world where everyone sues over everything. McDonald's has to write CAUTION: COFFEE IS HOT! on their coffee cups.

I didn't say you had to, just throwing it out there. Take it or leave it.

I don't think goole maps is a fair comparison, a better one would be SageTV, it is a licensed software that uses othe devices/softwares to record and view media content. SageTV has it writen in their EUA to protect themselves against someone using SageTV in a manner that is unlawful (i.e. storing rented movies on hard drives)

A quote from the SageTV EUA:

Quote:
...use the Product in compliance with all applicable laws including, without limitation, United States copyright laws...

Just trying to help bud.

No problem, thanks. The Tallus owner tends to say that we are small fishes anyway, and they won't be bothering us, but should they, it's easy enough to fix...

BTW, did you ever read my pm?

Does this app let the user scroll through their movies and play them on an extender? Or is it just for remote functions and streaming to the phone?

It is all of the above and more.


Version 1.52

- Fix: Some wifi events could happen before the app was ready for them.

Is there a video of the software in action? I might buy a smartphone partly just to run this software and I would be interested in seeing how it looks/works before buying anything. If there is no video no big deal.

I don't own an Android device myself... The first post and the wiki do have a bunch of screenshots, I should probably add some of the Actions somewhere.

OK, so here is one... There is no sound, not everything is shown and there is a big watermark in it, but...
