Dreambox: Sending Remote Control Commands via Network

Using the Windows operation system, I needed to send remote control codes/presses over the LAN to control the Dreambox: (sorry for the poor instructions)

  1. Download WGET for Windows and place it in C:\
  2. Launch a command prompt window and type: C:\wget.exe --quiet --delete-after http://dreambox-ip/cgi-bin/rc?x

By replacing x with the correct code number, the wget command will send a remote control press/code to the Dreambox. The flag --quite will make the command silent, and --delete-after will make wget not write any files to C:\

Here is a list of remote command codes: (I got them from the web interface of PLiĀ® image)

116=Power
2=1
3=2
4=3
5=4
6=5
7=6
8=7
9=8
10=9
158=previous
11=0
159=next
115=volume up
113=mute
402=bouquet up
114=volume down
1=lame
403=bouquet down
358=info
103=up
141=dream
105=left
352=OK
106=right
392=audio
108=down
393=video
398=red
399=green
400=yellow
401=blue
385=tv
377=radio
66=text
138=help

The above method can be used in many situations, but the way I use it is with IR Server Suite to control my Dreambox from a different room using Media Center PC.

Hope that helps :)
