MagentaTV / EntertainTV Binding for Deutsche Telekom MR 3xx and 4xx

Tags: #<Tag:0x00007f5c9853e688>

This is a binding for the Telekom MegentaTV receiver (aka Entertain ). It supports

  • controlling the receiver by sending key codes
  • receive program information and play status from the receiver

Those functions could be used to send commands and visualize the status. OH rules offer more opportunities to trigger events etc.

Check out the repo:

Any feature requests welcome - you could also open an Issue on GitHub or send me a PM.

Looking forward to any feedback.

If you are talking about the 4xx series of receivers, yes, would be interested.

yep, I have a MR400, series 3 will not be supported

Great, in the meantime, I would be interested in you bash script :wink:

this can be found here: https://github.com/markus7017/EntertainTV_Control
make sure to change
remote_ip="192.168.0.1"
remote_mac="AA:BB:CC:DD:EE:FF"
and install the proper packages (nc, md5sum, wakeonlan).

The receiver has to be set to standard standby mode. If it’s off the scripts sends a wakeonlan and then PINGs until it comes up before trying to do a pairing. That’s one thing I want to work on and be able to safely detect the power status, because the Power button is a toggle, which means you have to know the power status, before pressing Power and the receiver goes off even you want to send commands.

Thanks Markus, I will give it a try

Hi Markus,
I just get

Pairing request failed: -2

Any idea what could be the reason ? IP and MAC are set properly.

I am definitely interested and can offer to help testing a binding.

Good to know, give me some time to get up to speed.

First I would like to get the script running with your setup. This might provide some additional information useful for the binding dev. I’ll come back latest at the weekend with some more information.

Sounds good, will try the shell script this weekend.

soap_pair.xml and request_pair.log should be created while running the script. could you please provide them, what’s about screen output
-2 could be a file not found

Please make sure

  • curl, nc, wakeonlan, md5sum, awk, grep, tr are installed
  • to create a tmp sub-folder. Logs and temporary xml files go there.

Try to run

./entertain_control.sh log status

Thanks for your response.

log status output

ON

The script is unable to detected the local ip / mac address.
which environment are you using?
Raspbian, macOS…?

Please try

ip link show eth0

and

ifconfig en0

one of them should work.

what does

uname

show?

I am running Ubuntu 16.04 LTS server on an Intel NUC.
This system does not have eth0 but enp3s0 as primary network interface.

we could fiddel around that later

as a work around:

  • open the script and search for “function get_mac”
  • set ip_addr to your local IP address and mac_addr to your local MAC address
    at the end of the function:
    local_ip="192.168.x.x"
    mac_addr=“xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx”
  • run “./entertain_control.sh log status”

please also run the commands above and send the output

ip link show eth0

Device "eth0" does not exist

ifconfig en0

en0: Fehler beim Auslesen der Schnittstelleninformation: Gerät nicht gefunden

uname

Linux

Setting IP and MAC manually like you suggested does not change the result.
