    Is there any possibilty to make a WiFi remote for Pioneer AVRs + BDPs app?

    Dear folks,

    I´m sorry to be obtrusive or anything as I´m no developer...
    I simply wanted to know your opinion on this:
    Is there any way to make a WiFi remote for Pioneer Home Theater devices app, such as iControlAV2 for iOS + Droid?

    https://market.android.com/details?i...bnRyb2xhdjIiXQ..

    http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/icont...418087708?mt=8

    there is a guy, however, who made such app on its own and it works:

    also, there is a similar app for N9, but working only with Samsung TVs:

    Do you think there could be any chance to make this happen?
    I indeed contacted Pioneer themselves at the first place, their CS just told me there are no plans for releasing anything for Linux-based smartphones...sadly...
    but I do hope there is some chance..
    Many thanks

    If you get (from the manufacturer or otherwise) or manage to reverse engineer the interfaces/protocols that such equipment use, then there's no reason why you couldn't write an app that can control them from your N9.

    A good way to start with such reverse-engineering is to configure a phone for which such an app exists to use only WLAN, and then to force the WLAN traffic to go through a proxy server that you control (i.e. runs on your PC). Then at the proxy you can monitor the traffic between the phone/app and whatever box is is talking to and being to figure out the protocol.

    With today's "consumer electronics" (CE) devices in the home, some/many of the mechanisms are based on DLNA (Digital Living Network Alliance), where UPnP (Univeral Plug and Play) is a key protocol: http://www.dlna.org/
