Tools to control Philips 2016 Android TVs

The API is roughly the same as JointSpace ( with the following differences:

  • Uses HTTPS over port 1926
  • Uses /6/ instead of /1/ as the API path
  • All calls have to have digest auth to be successful
  • An initial pairing to determine the user/pass is required
  • Channel and Source methods aren't available

Channel status and changes are performed using a different protocol that isn't described here.

The tool here will do the initial pairing. The credentials can then be used in a standard way (digest) in other tools.
