Playing a file remotely using listenApp...

Fri Mar 17, 2006 10:41 am

Hi guys, I'm new to this forum and to roku devices in general... I have ah HD1000 and would like to play Mp3 files trougth a network connection, using telnet and the ECP protocol, in order to select songs without having to switch my video projector on every time. I found on the ECP pdf that it could be done in two ways: using listener or mp3player. I would prefer the listen mode because I could always stop, play etc using the user interface too. I was able to get control of the unit (play pause etc) but every time I send an:

ecp listenApp SetDirectory /anydir

I get this message: listenApp: malformed command

This happens also for the FilePlay <filename> command. In two words i'm not able to play anythig that was not in the already selected in the playlist by the user using roku HD1000 directly... Is this a known bug (I'm using the firmware ver. 2.0.36)?

Thanks to all, Alessandro (Italy)
